Announcements!

Hey guys,
I have some announcements to make.
First I decided to change the blog's name and address. I want something more.. book related. Well I have some ideas for the name but you'll see what I choose on May 1st. That's when the new name will come if everything goes as planned.
Second thing that's going to happen on May 1st is my second ever giveaway! I have an extra copy of a certain very popular book but I won't tell you which one now, you'll have to wait.
I also want to make some changes to the blog. I want to change the design again but I'll do that over the next month if I have the time. I also want to make things more interesting around here and I'm thinking of joining some Memes. I don't know which yet so if you have any suggestions feel free to leave a comment under to share them with me, I would appreciate! I might even add this as and entry to my giveaway.. oh I'm losing focus...
I was also wondering if anyone would want to post their reviews here. I still haven't looked into that yet, too so that's not happening yet.
I have so many ideas but school is hard on me right now and I can't accomplish any of them.
Well I'm doing my best and I am changing the name and I am having the giveaway so that should be enough for now.
I'll make a schedule for my reviews from now on so I have something to post at least once a week...
I finish a wonderful book today and I'll be posting that review soon so come back next week and check it out.
Well that's  it for now. Leave a comment bellow if you have anything to say..

Until the next time,

Review: Flawless (Pretty Little Liars, #2) by Sara Shepard

Goodreads summary:
In the exclusive town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, where the sweetest smiles hide the darkest secrets, four pretty little liars--Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna--have been very bad girls. . . .
Spencer stole her sister's boyfriend. Aria is brokenhearted over her English teacher. Emily likes her new friend Maya . . . as much more than a friend. And Hanna's obsession with looking flawless is literally making her sick. But the most horrible secret of all is something so scandalous it could destroy their perfect little lives.
And someone named "A" is threatening to do just that.
At first they thought A was Alison, their friend who vanished three years ago . . . but then Alison turned up dead. So could A be Melissa, Spencer's ultracompetitive sister? Or Maya, who wants Emily all to herself? What about Toby, the mysterious guy who left town right after Alison went missing?
One thing's for certain: A's got the dirt to bury them all alive, and with every crumpled note, wicked IM, and vindictive text message A sends, the girls get a little closer to losing it all.

Okay... book two. That was interesting. At least the ending was. At first things were kind of slow for me, or it was just the fact that I've already read it. But then again even then I was very interested in what will happen next because I was missing some very important details. At some point I realized that I have no idea what is coming and that's when things picked up. 
The last few chapters were action-packed an I was at the edge of my seat the whole time. I guess I'm used to knowing what happens in the TV series but I completely forgot that things are so different. 
The ending blew me away! I can't believe I forgot this. I mean,... it's crazy that it slipped my mind. I really don't know what to expect anymore. I'm just happy that I don't remember so I could enjoy the story again. 
I feel that excitement, like the fist time I read the books and I can't wait to go through them again. 
I can't wait for the girls to find the next clue, to have their next suspect... who is the next one they'll think is A? Who is A? 
It's a crazy cycle of questions but that's the best part of the book. I really, really enjoyed the ending and I loved the note from A. I can't wait to read what happens next. 
 In this one the characters are growing into something more complex. There are new secrets we get to learn and a few buried memories emerge from the depths of the girl's minds... 
I'm off to read book three! 

I give it:
You can find the book on Goodreads,

And purchase it from:

 The Book Depository, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
And you should check out the author on Goodreads and her website.

Until the next time,

Review: Pretty Little Liars (Pretty Little Liars, #1) by Sara Shepard

Goodreads summary:
Three years ago, Alison disappeared after a slumber party, not to be seen since. Her friends at the elite Pennsylvania school mourned her, but they also breathed secret sighs of relief.
Each of them guarded a secret that only Alison had known. Now they have other dirty little secrets, secrets that could sink them in their gossip-hungry world.
When each of them begins receiving anonymous emails and text messages, panic sets in. Are they being betrayed by some one in their circle? Worse yet: Is Alison back?
A strong launch for a suspenseful series.

After finishing the last episode of the second season of Pretty little liars I decided to re-read the first few books and to read the rest.
I never wrote a review for the books the first time but that's one of the reasons to read them again.
Ok so, the story is quite interesting. I love the mystery. The first book is fairly short and it's pretty much and intro to the real story. There are a lot of secrets to be revealed and at this point everything is just a big mess. I like the messages from A. If it's not happening to you, the mystery is very interesting. Who is A? What does s/he want? All those questions are a big part of the book.
I really don't have anything else to say right now. This was the beginning and nothing major happened yet. Some of the future relationships are beginning to form and it's nice to read about the characters's problems. 
I know it's a pretty bad review but as it is the first book there is not that much that I have to say. It was interesting enough to get me  read the rest but I kind of speed trough this one so I could see what happens next. As I said here we have a chance to meet Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily and we learn some of their secrets but there is so much that is unclear and there is so much mystery!
I loved the book but I couldn't wait for it to be over so I could go to book two.

One Tree Hill

Over the last two weeks I've been re-watching the 9 seasons of One tree hill and now after watching the very last episode I want to cry and in the same time I'm very happy to see how it all ends.
Just two weeks ago I realize that the end is on April 4th and I decided to go back on the memory lane and to start from the beginning. I still remember in 6th and 7th grade how a friend of mine and I started watching the series and how much we loved it then. It's been a long time since then and still as I started the very first episode of the show I new how much I'm going to enjoy it again.
It was every bit as amazing as I remembered it and there were no excruciating pauses between the seasons and some of the episodes..
I noticed how much the show changed over the years. It started as a story about a high-school kid with a great mom and a dad that never wanted him. For the first time we saw Tree Hill trough the eyes of Lucas Scott, the not popular kid that stood in the crowd like almost everybody, but who bloomed like a flower with his amazing talent and kindness and good heart. His relationships with Peyton Sawyer and Brooke Davis always presented a challenge and it was fun to watch even though it wasn't always hearths and flowers for them.
Lucas and Peyton found their happiness after 7 seasons of difficult choices and changes.
Brooke on the other hand found the real love of her life and the father of her children in the 8th season in the face of Julian Baker.
I loved seeing Brooke happy. She was one of the strongest characters in the series and I love her very very much. It was a pleasure to watch her grow as a person and I enjoyed seeing the ending of her story.
That's how I saw it at the beginning. Then it was Haley James(later Scott) to stand in the spotlight. I loved her and Nathan's story. Their struggle to make it as a couple started in the first season and continued all the way trough nine seasons of hard time and all kinds of obstacles. Their relationship was the strongest one I've seen in a show or anywhere really( yes I know it's made up but you can't not admire their strength as a couple and as individuals, even fake ones!).
I have so many favorite moments from the show but it would take me at least another two weeks to re-watch everything again so I could share all of them( and probably a mile long post to tell you guys about it).
Here are just a few of them:






Oh I just looove this moment. :D

I loved Keith in general, his presence and his personality. The whole package! 

Lucas and Peyton were just meant to be together! 
No matter if they were fighting or they were being friendly I always loved to watch those two together!
The moment we were all waiting for!
And here is Baby Sawyer!!!! Lovely!

Tutor girl, a cheerleader, a musician, a wife and a mother! Haley James Scott!!! The best character in the whole series and I admired her the most. She is amazing. 
Cutest little thing! James Lucas Scott...
Brooke Davis and her best moments :D(*Picture 3 is my absolute favorite!!!)
I loooooved this episode! It was so much fun to watch!
Quinn and Clay <3<3<3
A really nice surprise to find out about Logan's existence and who he is!

And here is a picture I just had to include!!!

The last season was the most memorable one and I would love one day to go watch the series again and to relive all the great memories!
Okay I could go on all night but that's going to be a little bit too much so I'll stop here. For those of you who have watched the show, I hope you liked it as much as I did and for all those who haven't, you should. It's a great story and an awesome show. I loved it very, very much and I'm really sad it's over. (I wish there were at least another season but oh... this time it's over for good.)

PS: I haven't mentioned a lot of main characters but maybe some day I'll do a One Tree Hill part 2 post where I'll tell you all about them! 
Thanks for visiting!
Until next time,
