Amazing novel. Diving into Everett and Parker’s life couldn’t have been any more real than it is. I felt so much emotions throughout the book. They were so genuine, so opaque and yet so transparent. I thought I was living inside the book. The writing was just amazing, flawless and (more…)

“Here’s the twist to your story, Charlie. You ready for it?” he growled and nipped at my lower lip. “Breathe me in deep. Hold your breath. I will make you fall in love with me again. Because I sure as shit didn’t think I’d ever see you again, and I sure as shit didn’t think I could fall in love with you again, but I did.” His hands gripped me tighter. “Like I was falling from a cliff, Charlie. Then…then…I realized when I hit the ground; I’ve been in love with you this whole time. It never stopped. I’ll never stop. I will never stop, and I will never give up on you.” His voice lowered, “It was you from the beginning, the minute you taped that skull and crossbones to your window wearing those baggy jeans, that Nirvana T-shirt, and those God-awful chucks, you were my horizon. Everything I could ever see.”

“Meet Matt. He’s the new ‘it’ guy. He’s from a foreign country, doesn’t speak English, and the ladies can’t keep their eyes off of him.”

“Dude. I’m from Canada.” Matt sighed.”

REVEAL THE SECRET BOOK

“You’re broken, but so am I. Broken doesn’t mean we’re valued any less, it just means we’ve loved someone so much and so fiercely that losing them feels like we’ve lost part of ourselves. ”

”Don’t you get it, Dillon?” she says, struggling to keep her head straight. “There’s a reason why you’re my only friend. Why haven’t you figured this out yet?”

”What are you doing, Cody?” I ask quietly as he inches even closer, his lips so close to brushing against mine.

He stares into my eyes for a moment before whispering, “What I have to do.”

REVEAL THE SECRET BOOK

“Pain doesn’t really go away because someone kisses it better. Sadness doesn’t recede because a person posts an inspiring quote on your Facebook wall. Grief doesn’t sink into the shadows the moment the sun comes up. You can’t sleep your way through misery. There are some hurts that become a part of you, like your blood or your eyes or your teeth. Those are the ones that need to be lived over and over again.”

“I’ve spent endless hours studying your face and talking photos of you,” Blake said solemnly, “and yet I don’t think I ever saw you quite as clearly, or as perfectly as I see you right now.”

Today, 8:15 p.m.
I hurt. I hurt so deeply, I felt the pain searing in my bones and jabbing like a hot poker into my heart. I knew nothing would make it better as the memories pulled from the crevices of my mind, detailing the bad and the ugly, filling my thoughts with regret as I slipped into the darkness. . .

When I was eight, my mother was dying of cancer, my father lost his job, and the bank kicked us out of our house. I was forced to move to the strange town of Arlis, Texas where my father and I slept in our car in the hospital parking lot. Desperate and hopeless, we lived on fumes of our former life.

Then one night, everything changed forever. A knock on the car window brought a family into my life that I only wanted to shut out. I hated charity and I hated the Masons. Well, except one. He made it impossible to hate him.

Jess Mason had the biggest blue eyes and ornery smile of any boy I had ever seen. He was a ray of sunshine in my dark world. A boy full of adventure, dragging me across the meadow of Sprayberry Ranch; a beautiful Texas paradise full of horses and tree houses that got us into more trouble than anyone ever imagined.

Jess was my everything as a kid until we grew up and the rules changed. Instead of living happily ever after with a boy full of love. . . I destroyed it.
– Alex Tanner

Get ready for another super epic love story that is bound to keep you at the edge of your seats. Alex and Jess’ childhood love story is extraordinary, you will not read anything like it. No book in the world could every compare the loss and pain that Alex had endured during her childhood and present day. (more…)

Author Interviews VS Character Interviews

Author interviews VS Character interviews

A lot of newbie bloggers do a lot of interviews, but most of them are about the writer of the novel. They never thought about interviewing the characters of the book. I didn’t know about it till I got to join a few blog tours. People get really creative sometimes. But what do most people prefer? I don’t want to speak in general because we all have different interest.

Based solely on my opinion

As a blogger I feel that it more likely to interview the author than the character because interviewing the author allows even non-fans to read more about the background of the novelist. If you interview a character, doesn’t it seem like a spoiler? It’s definitely fun, but I hate to be spoiled. But if only less than half of your viewers read the interview, don’t you think it’s about time to stop it all at once?

The fact that’s hard to accept is that author interviews are downright boring. I never even stopped by a blog and read their author interviews. I-am-not-interested. But character interviews are another thing. Sadly, not all of us are allowed to read character interviews because it reveals more than just the persona of the character, you can tell a lot about a book from its characters. It can possible drive away a reader or pull them into it. You’ve gotta admit that I am sort of right.

What should be done about author interviews?

In my opinion, author interviews should not only be about the author. The interviewer should discuss about the book with the author so that the readers would have some sort of closer. Don’t you think it’s a great idea? I’ve always wanted to interview Morgan Matson because I never got the closure I wanted form Since You’ve Been Gone.

Character interviews should be taken more seriously because the greatest closure we can receive is if we hear it from the character themselves. It’s really psychological. *Winks
