Some decisions have unimaginable consequences.

Every time someone makes a choice, a new parallel world is spun off the existing one. Eating breakfast or skipping it, sneaking out instead of staying in bed—every decision creates an alternate universe in which an Echo self takes the road not travelled. As a Walker who can navigate between these realities, Del is training to help keep the dimensions in harmony.

When Del secretly starts to investigate other dissonant worlds, she get tangled up with an Echo of her longtime crush. She knows she shouldn’t keep seeing him. But as Del persists, she uncovers a truth that the Council of Walkers is trying to hide—a secret that threatens the entire multiverse.

When your friends love the book you dislike…

Jo Judge

My friends and I usually have the same taste, but we do sometimes disagree on things likeable and loveable. There are books that my friends really love and I’m like (Said picture below). I don’t understand why they love the book, I try to love them, but I end up hating it…Is it me or are they just weird? Have I lost my taste? Have my friends lost their taste? I will never admit to anyone that I have horrible taste in books because I don’t believe it. I can recommend you the juicy ones, the horrifically amazing novels and the most tear-jerking romance books you won’t ever find. Totally bragging over here! LOL, there is no modestly when it comes to me. Thank you very much.

I have come to a question where I get to ask myself once again. Why do my friends have bad taste? Just kidding. That’s not the question I’m talking about. What I meant to say was…(Said picture below, but of course I’m jesting).

What’s you’re first reaction when your friends fangirl about this book? Obviously, you’d be giddy and jump everywhere, saying I need to buy a copy today! (Finishes the book) Well, that was a waste of my money. So…you can’t really trust anyone’s opinion besides your own. Hell, even I don’t trust myself, when you leave me in a bookstore with a credit card-Not a good idea. SMH.

I wanted to strangle my friends when they tricked me into buying a book that I ended up hating. I’ll come over and kill you in your sleep. (I’m jesting again.) Just a reminder, we should not become lividly violent towards our friends because we have “different” taste in books. And it is also illegal to commit murder. (Awwww)

To finally end this issue, I wouldn’t become overly too excited about a recommendation from a close friend. Do your own research on the book. If you like the idea then go for it. Just don’t go blaming your friends for a decision that was all on you. You friend only suggested. Besides, there’s no harm in trying.

What would you do in this situation?

Review: Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally

Source: Borrowed from a friend
Format: Finished Copy
Series: Standalone
Category:  Mature YA
Genre: Contemporary romance
Ratings:  4 stars

Purchase on Amazon  | Barnes & Noble 

Annie hates running. No matter how far she jogs, she can’t escape the guilt that if she hadn’t broken up with Kyle, he might still be alive. So to honor his memory, she starts preparing for the marathon he intended to race.

But the training is even more grueling than Annie could have imagined. Despite her coaching, she’s at war with her body, her mind—and her heart. With every mile that athletic Jeremiah cheers her on, she grows more conflicted. She wants to run into his arms…and sprint in the opposite direction. For Annie, opening up to love again may be even more of a challenge than crossing the finish line.

“Breathe, Annie, Breathe is an emotional, heartfelt, and beautiful story about finding yourself after loss and learning to love. It gave me so many feels. Her best book yet.” — Jennifer Armentrout, New York Times bestselling author of Wait for You

Know Chyna behind the pages…

Chyna

I normally don’t share anything personal, but I’m falling in love with blogging even more. I think it’s because I’m developing or I’m improving. My parents are super proud of me but I never let them read my blog. My dad told me that I should become a journalist once I finish college. (I haven’t even started) He must have thought that I loved writing reviews, but I only love reading books then my mom gave the idea of me becoming an author. Hell no.

What I’ve always dreamed of becoming is a wedding gown designer. I doodle here and there, but designing is an impossible profession, only a few become topnotch. I understand where my dad is coming from, but I really am in love with designing gowns for brides.

Here I am sharing a few of my doodles. I mostly draw during class so there are sketches in my planner. I’m organized like that. *Winks* They say the more you put yourself into your blog, the more people will love it. Would that be true? Even if it isn’t this is kinda related to books in a sense. I’ll let you figure it out. I hope you enjoy these drawings! :)

Cover Reveal: Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Chyna’s Note:

I have to be honest with you, I half don’t like the cover. The guy looks a bit feminine and if you follow JLA on Facebook she posted bits of her new Wicked Cover, it was a super hot guy with abs underwater but now that I got to see the final design…LOL. I’m laughing and jumping for joy at the same time.

The girl isn’t doing so well for me, she looks like she has big arms and the guy gives off that annoying feminine aura. But all in all I’d give it a 6/10. It’s still a passing mark for me, but it could have been better. How about you guys? What do you think? Click READ MORE to see the full cover.
