I am #TeamDauntless

Yep, I think it's time to choose a faction already so I went to Facebook and took the quiz.
Obviously you know my result^^ But I still have to post this picture:

So expect to see a lot of posts about #TeamDauntless and to read my tweets about it :D

And, let me explain why did I choose this team: Some of you may know that my family is going through a really hard time and since my mom is specially involved in this problem I had to take a flight to come and help her which means I've been away from home almost two months. And I recently got married 6 months ago... I can honestly say I miss my husband, my doggie and my house quite a lot...

But someone has to protect my mom, someone has to be by her side and someone has to defend her from all the bad people that is hurting her. And because of all the love I have for her I feel stronger, I feel wiser and I'm ready to do whatever it takes to make sure she is okay.
I believe that love can change people. I believe that when you love someone and that person is in trouble your spirit rises.

I'm brave because I want to protect all the people I love. Now I understand.

In My Mailbox (11)

In My Mailbox is a meme created by Kristi at The Story Siren that features books I've received/purchased/won during the current week.

Have I told you that I honestly LOVE my iPad? No? Well, I do xD You know why? Because right now I'm not home and I won't be for the next 16 days so I can't read the books that are awaiting me there, sigh... But, since I'm a member of NetGalley I can read the books that I request (and they aprove, of course). That's why I'm jumping up and down since yesterday evening, hahahaha.

Here are the books I received for review:
- Flirting in Italian by Lauren Henderson
- Romeo Reddemed by Stacey Jay (I can't wait to read it!!!)
- Bad Hair Day by Carrie Harris
- The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa (OMG, I can't believe I'm going to read it tonight!)
- Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowen
- The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross

Here are the book I bought
- Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers
- Fever by Lauren DeStefano
- Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Despite the problems life is good :D And books, as always, are great friends.
Happy Easter everyone!!!

Pages: 296 (paperback copy bought by me)

Summary from Goodreads:

Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them. Until something does. Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you.

Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends — one of whom is already hooked. And so is someone else...

Some news

To my lovely friends,

It's been almost a month since I posted something and I just wanted to say sorry for not being here and for not having the willing to write more.
My "holidays" are being hard, specially because my parents are having problems. I never thought a divorce could be this difficult and painful.

Anyway, I just wanted to say I'm still here and that, as soon as I can I'll begin to write again.
I have to stay here in Lima at least one month more and that means I have to be away from home, from my husband and my doggie. And I barely have time to read, sigh...

With that being said I want you to know I miss you all. I miss reading the tweets, I miss the memes, I miss my conversations with some of you and exchanging e-mails. But I'll be back! :D

Lots of hugs. And kisses. And more hugs! ^^
