A Vintage Year by Kate Preston

A Vintage YearA Vintage Year by Kate Preston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I got this book in exchange for an honest review in Story Cartel.

Ok, first of all, this book was not what I expected, I mean in the good way, I read the synopsis and my mind created a book, and this book was not it, so, it surprised me, it was not what I thought and I loved that.

And to tell, from someone that knows nothing of wines, this book was very stimulating, I fell for the Santa Barbara vineyards, and for the views and of course, now I feel like go and buy some cheap wine and a bottle of Domaine de Gaston 2006 just to see if I can taste, smell and feel the diference! I even was checking if there is some vineyard near here to go and visit so...

Ok, the book, it tells the story from two POV, Harris Tucker and Laura Walters, it's not a love story, it's not a first sight love, it takes time, fights and apologies, it shows the change in the characters personalities while reading.

Now, I don't want to spoil the book for you, I just will say that it is worth reading.

So, here is Harris... (let me dream...)

And Laura...

Review: I Want a Dog: My Opinion Essay (The Read and Write Series Book 1) by Darcy Pattison

I Want a Dog: My Opinion Essay (The Read and Write Series Book 1)I Want a Dog: My Opinion Essay by Darcy Pattison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

**I did receive an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.**

Hello, today I read this book, is short and easy reading, AND it is educational, I liked it very much. It gives you the way to write an essay in a very interesting and funny way, this book could be a great helper for kids, I mean, students and of course, teachers.

The bad thing is that now my son has a very detailed essay of why it is possible for us to have a dog! Hahahaha I'm kidding, it is a good thing that he got the essay idea very fast :) he loved the draws and the colors, and of course the dogs in this book. By the way, my son is 6 years old.

I believe this is a book you should have in your shelf, Clark says so.

Review: A Life Worth Living by Jennifer Probst

A Life Worth LivingA Life Worth Living by Jennifer Probst
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A cute story that helps to raise awareness

I have a lot of friends whom help in shelters, my house has been temporal home for some very big dogs; I'm a animal lover, so, when I read this short story it made me angry, and sad, and then happy, and then I cryed, and then I did smile...

It was something to listen Lester's voice, I highly recomend this story.

AND, I know you may know some Animal Shelters, but, if you don't, I let you here this one, Tierra de Animales, is a Shelter in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico, they are doing something good and they always need help, here you go if you want to take a look...

Review: Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors

Mad LoveMad Love by Suzanne Selfors
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ok, this book is not what you think, it was not what I thought!
This is not a love story but at the same time is The love story.
Yes, Alice and Cupid are the main characters of this story, but not their love story.

Well, this book had my mind is running with all the possibilities on the first half part of the book; and I love when a book does that to me, a lot. It wakes up my mind, it makes me wonder and build towers in my imagination, this book did that to me, and for that, I loved it.

Me while reading:

I don't want to spoil the book for you, I want you to enjoy it as I did.
BUT, here is my Errol (not Jack Frost, but Errol):

Review: Queen of Someday (Stolen Empire, #1) by Sherry D. Ficklin

Queen of Someday (Stolen Empire, #1)Queen of Someday by Sherry D. Ficklin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The first thing I'm gonna say is this: I'm heading to wiki to read the real story of Catherine!

Ok, I didn't red the synopsis of this book, I just bought it and start reading it (Because I loved other books by Sherry), I thought this was a book of a love story, but is not that.

I liked the book, I liked Sergei from the first time I read about him. I liked Sophie, and I didn't know Peter was a sadistic! (What I got, for not reading the synopsis).

So, ¿what next?, ¿when is the next book coming?

There are some quotes I loved.

"I think that love can indeed be many things. But the one thing it will never be is practical. Love is irrational by its very nature. It demands passion, fire, and no less than absolute surrender. It is a longing, a burning that consumes you, leaving you without reason, or defense. When love comes, nothing can stand in its way." —Alexander

"What if I have nothing left to fight for? I say, my voice shaking.

"Then you fight until you find something to fight for. But the moment you stop fighting the current, the moment you surrender to it, that's when you are truly lost." —Sophie & Sergei

Reseña: Rasguños en la Puerta (RELP #1) by Melisa S. Ramonda

Rasguños en la Puerta (RELP #1)Rasguños en la Puerta by Melisa S. Ramonda
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Ok, Wow, en serio. Wow.

Este libro es todo lo que promete la autora al principio. No es lo que comúnmente se espera de  "hombres lobo", es absolutamente realista dentro de lo fantástico, ¿me explico?.

Es una historia que comienza hablándonos de una tragedia en la vida de la protagonista, y su forma de sobrevivir a dicha tragedia, pero mientras ella se repone de lo que le paso, cosas maravillosas e increíbles suceden. Este libro no es lo que parece, a aun así, es todo lo que debe de ser.

Debo de admitir que en momentos se me hizo larga la lectura, había espacios en lo que me preguntaba cuanto mas faltaba para terminar, pero lo vale, cada segundo leído, cada palabra salida de la cabeza de Johanna tiene un fin y significado.

Mi personaje preferido, el que mas me gusto es Mirko, me pregunto como sera su historia en el futuro... Ah, Richie también me gusto mucho, y Luke.

Mi Nikolai:

Quería hacer un dibujo de como me imagino a Nikolai, pero no he tenido tiempo, así que busque en google, y encontré esto, que es muy parecido a lo que tengo en mi cabeza:

Un Spoiler:

Y unas imágenes que me encontre en la web de la escritora:

Review: Ettie Explores Earth: An Ettie the Explorer Adventure Story by Lynn Holland

Ettie Explores Earth:  An Ettie the Explorer Adventure StoryEttie Explores Earth:  An Ettie the Explorer Adventure Story by Lynn  Holland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First of all, I did receive an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for your unbiased review.

I liked this book so much, but my kids loved it! The idea of being freinds with Ettie and "help" him to learn about our Earth was exciting for them. My children are small, 3 and 6, and there are things they have not seen in school yet but it is amazing how they get to their own conclusions, like, ¿Why the sky is blue?, ¿or why the Earth looks blue from space?, is is shocking how they have answered Ettie's questions. My kids are growing up so fast!

Ok, back to the book, the planets, astronauts, the sun, the moon, everything, this book has a little bit of all those things and is easy reading, fun, good draws.

This is how Ettie sees our planet from space ;)
