Our Feature  – obsession with books

Photobucket

I’m a Spanish girl living in Switzerland that loves to read almost any kind of book. I write down the ideas and thoughts I have and I care for people. Need a friend? Need someone to talk to? Try with me 😀

I like having people around, reading and having fun. I also like to travel a lot and my biggest dream is to go back to Brasil and live there again. It’s such a wonderful country!

Q. Do you have a favorite series that you read over and over again? Tell us a bit about it and why you keep on revisiting it?

Yes, I do, I used to read a lot of books over and over again before I became a pesky book blogger. One of which is Twilight, for some reason that first book is like crack. I’m rather embarrassed about it, but hey, it is what it is right. I don’t think I need to tell you about it though, pretty much that descriptor is a given. I also tend to reread Ender’s Game a lot — and if you are looking for a male led dystopian (questionable genre)/scifi/coming of age – that is a good choice. Excellent choice.

Q. It’s that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?

Yes, I would like to make a science fiction reality, how cool would that be? The future as proposed by say Orson Scott Card, in his Ender’s Game series, where humans can travel from world to world, settling different planets. How cool would that be?

Our Feature  – Holjo (Pedantic Phooka)

Pedantic Phooka

I am an Account Executive and Mom by day and a book addict by night.  You see, I have a touch of insomnia… which means that I often find myself needing something to keep me occupied long after normal people are asleep.  I love to read, especially an intense paranormal series, during the wee hours of the night.  If it is a really good book, I might look over at the clock at 6am and realize that I didn’t sleep at all!  I believe that is why God invented coffee.

I started blogging because I didn’t have anyone in my daily life to talk to about the books I love to read.  I’d finish an awesome book and be dying to talk about it, but couldn’t get it out!  Blogging and writing reviews is my way of getting closure to the stories I read.  I find that I need that in order to start something new.  It has been great fun so far!!

Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story?  If so, which one??

Elixir by Hillary Duff – I want the bad guys to win just so they could kill everyone in the book and end it all – so there wouldn’t be a follow-up and I wouldn’t have to read anymore. Bleh…no more immortality for you…die die die.

Our Feature  – Lisa @ Lisa Loves Literature

First HUGE apology to Lisa – sorry I messed up the posts.

I have been addicted to books since my mom bought me the first 20 books in the Nancy Drew series when I was like 7 years old.  I know I have a problem, if I walk by books anywhere, I have to stop and look if possible, even garage sales and the grocery store!  I current am a middle school science teacher, but a few years after I started teaching, I decided to get a Master’s degree in library science, and since then I have been searching for a library job.  It is hard to get out of science though.  So along with working at a bookstore part time, I enjoy sharing about the books I read with my students.  
I began blogging a few years ago on Live Journal.  I soon moved to a more public blog site, Blogger, when a fellow avid reader that I was one of my managers at the bookstore I work at told me about her blog.  I really read all kinds of books, but have lately, or maybe around the time Twilight came out, really gotten in to Teen or YA books.  There are so many good ones out there it is hard to not just read them all, or try to.  Not sure when this will be posted, so can’t really tell what I’m reading now, because I could be many books past when I wrote this originally.  I guess I could say I’m currently reading whatever e-galleys I can get from Netgalley.com, expecially YA books that have yet to be released when possible.  I really want to get my blog up to at least 100 followers because of some publishers on Netgalley look at that before they let you have a copy, and I enjoy meeting people who love to read the same books I read to get their opinions and new ideas to read.

Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

This is going to be a spoiler fest so try to write the title of the book as a dominant feature – and warn people about spoilers.

I don’t have very many series that I want to change up no matter how many books in the series might have upset me with cliffhangers, the ending usually has a wonderful culmination that makes everything make sense (…Shadowfeaver).

TWILIGHT SPOILERS>>>>>
But a last book in a series that I really disliked and was bittersweet was Breaking Dawn. I think it was the ultimate cop-out of Stephanie Meyers to (haven’t read the series STOP NOW!!)

for one name the child Reneseme or whatever it was. What was that? And for two, imprint the child on to Jacob.  What an easy way to have Jacob get off of Bella’s back and to tie things up so nicely. Easy way out! How did I see it ending? Certainly not with Bella pregnant. I thought it would end in an epic battle on Bella and Edward’s return with the Volturi breathing down their backs. Jacob comes back to confront Edward before he turns Bella…they battle. Jacob rips Edwards to shreds, but in the process Bella tries to save him and gets bit by both the vampire and the werewolf. Jacob so torn up by almost hurting Bella runs off to L.A. and ends up imprinting on a Hollywood actress and becoming the next big film star. Bella turns into the first werewolf / vampire hybrid and wreaks havoc because she is torn up over Edward’s death.

Vampire hunters descend on her, but she is so strong in her new hybrid state that she takes them down – but in the end causes the government to take notice of her. She is recruited in to a government agency that specializes in tracking bad vampires. Where she finds a niche group of people and a place to be herself…until she finds her husband is not quite dead…

I might have mixed up a story here.

Our Feature  – Caught in the Pages


I have always loved reading, even when I was little.  I was the type who would be reading more than one book at a time, all the time, couldn’t get my nose out of a book for anything.  After growing up, life (aka husband, job, had a baby) caught up with me some and I just didn’t read like I used to.  I discovered other book blogs by chance and fell in love with the idea of sharing something I love with the world.  I started my blog hoping that if nothing else, I would be motivated to keep reading and reading other blogs would help me to discover great new books.

I am constantly bugging my husband about books and even convinced him to buy me one instead of going to see Transformers 3 (I think I have an addiction).  I am either reading a book, reading about books, or lusting after books.  I also dream of owning a Kindle.  I love anything involving love (yep, just full of love here).  I put the smell of a book up there with the smell of fresh bread and the smell of coffee brewing (don’t think I am weird :P).

Q. In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question “comes out of the closet” and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

Vampires…HOLLA!!! But not the skeevy ones that just can’t help themselves to blood and are like crazy friggy blood sucking machines. No – I think vampires need some free will.
