I would love to write my post "Waiting on Wednesday" but since my boyfriend left my laptop in a... well, don't know how to say it, but is not working and I can only use his Mac but since all my books and images and everything is in mine I can't post almost anything...

Anyway, just a quick note. Yesterday I found in one of the bookstores here in Switzerland "Tiger's Curse" and "Tiger's Quest" so I bought both of them (auch! Here everything is so expensive!) because I loved the covers - what can I say? Covers are really important for me, hehe- but when I came home and I looked for reviews about the books I was kind of scared... a few were saying that the books are awesome and perfect but I also read reviews really, really bads... So, will see what happens now. I'll let you know my opinion while I'm reading it in Goodreads and then I'll write a review myself.

Hope you are having a wonderful day. Hugs!

Cover Reveal: A Beautiful Evil by Kelley Keaton

Have you read "Darkness becomes her"? Because sadly, I haven't but the book is in my TBR pile so, hopefully I will read it soon (I need longer days!!!). Anyway, "A Beautiful Evil" is the sequel of "Darkness Becomes Her".

Here is all the info you might need:
  • Release date: Februare 21, 2012
  • Author: Kelly Keaton
  • Series: Gods & Monsters Book #2
  • Publisher: Simon Pulse
Summary from Goodreads:

A power she can’t deny. A destiny she’s determined to fight.
When Ari first arrived in the dilapidated city of New 2, all she wanted was to figure out who she was. But what she discovered was beyond her worst nightmare. Ari can already sense the evil growing inside her—a power the goddess Athena will stop at nothing to possess. Desperate to hold on to her humanity and protect her loved ones, Ari must fight back.
But Athena’s playing mind games, not just with Ari but with those she cares about most. And Athena has a very special plan for the brooding and sexy Sebastian.Ari is determined to defeat Athena, but time is running out. With no other options, Ari must unleash the very thing she’s afraid of: herself.

Now I must add this book, to my TBR pile, hahaha. Hopefully, I will read "Darkness becomes her" before this one comes out (I have more than 7-8 months, that should give me plenty of time, right?)

I did it! I have my blog!!!

Sorry, I need to scream a little more...


Ehem... *blushing a little* thanks for waiting. So, yes, this is my first post in my awesome brand new blog... I'm so excited!!!

What will you find here? Most likely reviews of the books and maybe (big maybe) reviews about series,movies and manga.
In my reviews I'll be completely honest and I will give between 1 and 5 points (or cheeses, that is. I am a mouse, remember?).
After making a review I'll post it in: Goodreads, The Book Depository and Random House. Unless, of course, I'm asked to post it somewhere else too.

If you want to know more about me, please, check the "About Me" section and if you want to contact me please, go to the "Contact" section.

I'll do my best to update as frequently as I can and I'll be hosting a few giveaways when the time comes.

Since my first language is Spanish be patient with me if I have a few mistakes, ok? Or if I, suddenly, use a word in Spanish or Portuguese (I can get crazy like that).

I'm also new in this but I'll try my best to do a good job and have fun with you all.

Besos y abrazos,
