Good Reads Synopsis:
“I’ll grow wings all by myself.”

Mary is a young artist about to enter a new chapter in her life. After years of waiting and searching, she has finally found true love. She’s also just discovered that her fiancĂ© Joshua has inherited his father’s rundown countryside mansion. To add to the rising pressure, her wedding day is so close she can practically hear the music. All she has to do is accept what the future holds. Accept…and be happy.

But something’s missing.

As the seasons change, her doubts turn to fears, and her fears become reality. Through struggle and loss, the love she once possessed for Joshua transforms into contempt. When Mary is confronted with a magical escape, the life she has and the life she dreams of will collide, awakening a mysterious change within. But no choice comes without cost, and each one will draw her closer to the truth.

At times both beautiful and haunting, Winter Sparrow dares you to step into a world where eternity is a moment and every breath is a second chance. The fantasy begins….


My Thoughts:
Winter's Sparrow was a great and passionate read. It taps into the feeling a lot of people have but rather not acknowledge. To me I see this book tapping into the inner feeling confidence. More particularly the confidence of oneself in a relationship. Our main characters Mary and Joshua are engaged. Joshua is ready to love and devote himself to Mary but Mary is not. She is indecisive and unhappy a lot. She isn't exactly what I would call marriage material but that's why you gotta love Josh! The more I read the more I got pulled in! This story was something I have never read before. I loved the fantasy! I loved the description and all the detail Estevan Vega puts into his books! It keeps the books interesting and me wanting MORE!! This read was one I did not regret reading. It was passionate and moving. As we all know I'm no robot so we know I was tearing up and kept every page turning!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!! It was very much worth the read and kept my heart warm and trembling waiting to know the fate of these lovers.

Q: What book do you think would make a great Halloween movie?
A: I think Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender would make a great movie! All about ghost and supernatural spirits entering bodies and creepy big eyed dolls! We mustn't forget the creepy big eyed dolls!!!

Book Review: The Lure of Shapinsay

Hey my lovelies as you know I have been absent because of school lately, but I have been trying so hard to get back to my blog. Well today I have no homework and I decided to do a book review on one of the few books I have gotten a chance to read! So Let's go!


Good Reads Synopsis

Ever since Kait Swanney could remember, the old crones of the village have been warning her to stay away from the selkies. They claim that like sirens of old, the seal men creep from the inky waters, shed their skins, and entice women to their deaths beneath the North Sea. But avoiding an encounter becomes impossible when Kait is spotted at the water’s edge, moments after the murder of a half-selkie infant.

Unexpectedly, Kait is awoken by a beautiful, selkie man seeking revenge. After she declares her innocence, the intruder darts into the night, but not before inadvertently bewitching her with an overpowering lure.

Kait obsesses over a reunion deep beneath the bay and risks her own life to be reunited with her selkie. But when she lands the dangerous lover, the chaos that follows leaves Kait little time to wonder—is it love setting her on fire or has she simply been lured?

My Review: I really enjoyed this book! The mythology and twist on the mythology was really something refreshing to my reader's eyes. I have never read anything other than Greek mythology so reading this was really new. The main characters, Kait and Eamon, were really well put together and were very like-able characters. The alternating POVs in this book were really well written and enjoyable! I loved being able to look inside both Kait and Eamon's minds! Eamon was at times a very irritating character but you couldn't help but to love him yet want to change him a little bit also. This book was one I really enjoyed and was not that hard for me to get through at all. Krista Holle did a great job at writing this lovely tale of love and loss.

This Week's question is...
Do your reading habits change based on your moods? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling happy or depressed?
A: Yes, I do read based on my moods. If I'm feeling depressed I won't read anything heavy, like a deep paranormal romance or a love story. I would read a more happy book and something hilariously funny. If I am happy then I would venture out and read something heavy and deep. When I feel like it won't put me in a rut.

What about you??

Well my lovelies! I am not done with my summer work and school starts next Monday!!!!! But I miss the blogging community and I hoped its missed me! I will be doing a book review tomorrow on Identical by Ellen Hopkins but today its all about the Top Ten! So here we go!


Today's Top Ten subject is Top Ten Characters You Would Switch Places With for 24 Hours.

1. Hazel Grace Lancaster from The Fault in Our Stars. She may have had some hell of a cancer, but I think the chance to meet someone as great as Augustus Waters would have made it a hell of a lot better.

2. Juliet/ Ariel from Juliet Immortal. I think having someone so dark and evilly sexy as Romeo would be great! But to also have sweet sweet Ben there to save the day would be awesome!

3. Vladimir Tod from The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod. I think Vladimir is a great male vampire character. He isn't rich and he isn't all that handsome (In some people's eyes. I think he is hella sexy!), and he sucks at math. He's like a normal teenage boy except he is a vampire and someone is always trying to kill him. But I want to see what a day is like in Vladimir's life.

4. Jenna Solitaire from Keeper of the Winds. This book was amazing and had amazing characters! Its like a witchcraft mystery and I loved it! Jenna is a great character and has an amazing adventure! I would love to see what that was like!

5. Katarina from Heist Society. Okay. Awesome thief, hot boy billionaire bestfriend, unlimited resources, and a colorful family history... Okay I'm sold!

6. Marc Antony from Julius Caesar. Okay is Marc Antony not the greatest Roman who ever lived!? I think so! He is a great man who avenges his bestfriend he is a great military leader and when it comes down to it he is noble and honest towards his foes!

I am sorry guys and gals!! That is all I could think of!! I guess my creative juices gotta get flowing again!! I hope you liked my Top Ten! What are yours!?

Top Most Ten Vivid Worlds/ Settings in Books

1). Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling. I think this was very self exclamatory. But for those of you who don't know! Harry Potter's world building is one of the most remarkable and imprinting memories and marks on my, and probably half the world's, childhood. When I went to bed my mother always read me at least two chapters from Harry Potter and as the series grew, so did I. I followed Harry and The Gang and enjoyed every magical and action filled word.

2). Perfect by Ellen Hopkins. I felt like I was in Nevada with Kara, Sean, Andre, and Kendra. It was an amazing and vivid telling of the Nevada desert and snowy mountains.

3). The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod by Heather Brewer. The world building in this series had a world inside a world! It wasn't confusing but instead incredible! It was was described as a right in front of you, but naked to the human eye. I loved learning about this small quaint, vampire filled town.

This week's question is..

Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?
A: Well I guess what started my blogging was the that I had nobody in my life to really just talk about books with. I mean I had my mom but we read two totally different genres! I've always like reading blogs; so when the opportunity presented itself (summer) I jumped on it. I liked the web part about it and the blogging and writing part about it. It was something to keep me busy over the summer and a way for me to meet new a great people in this community! I did start off vlogging on YouTube but I decided I was a much better writer than I was speaker..lol! 

Please follow and comment and I'll do vice versa :) Have a great week!!

Book Review: Jenny Green's Killer Junior Year by Amy Belasen and Jacob Osborn

COMMENTS
Good Reads Synopsis

Jenny Green is a spoiled teen "princess" and the newest junior at Montreal's Molson Academy. Jenny wants a fresh start in her new school, and she's curious to see what Montreal has to offer, most especially in the boy department. Beautiful, charming, and sharp-witted, Jenny has no trouble getting the boys to fall for her.But when she discovers just how despicable the male gender can be -- with the lying, the cheating, and the utter disrespect -- she decides to make them pay...with their lives.

My Review:
Now this book was HILARIOUS!! It was a great break from my reading paranormal books. It was witty, sarcastic and totally sexy! I loved the sarcasm of Jenny and the dumbness of her roommates and her boyfriends are just the worst! I love how this book was set in Montreal most books are set in the U.S. and it was cool seeing it set somewhere else. Although the Canadians didn't seem very Canadian. They weren't very believable.

This week's question is...

Q: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don't like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.

A: I picked up my first Manga about a year ago. It was Fruits Basket and I have been in love with Manga ever since! I picked it up at request of a friend, she guaranteed me I would love it and if I didn't she would pay for my next book series...Well I paid for my own series because I LOVED IT

I follow back! I love Manga now! How do you feel about it!?




Bigg Talk: Detective Elliot Stabler a Vampire!?

0
COMMENTS
Well my lovelies...Today's Bigg Talk is about something that flipped my little world upside down! I think everyone knows that HBO's True Blood is based off of The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
Well if you are also a Law&Order Junkie like I am then you all know that our beloved Detective Elliot Stabler left the new season of Law&Order: SVU. 
AND HERE'S WHY!
HE'S A VAMPIRE!!

 Ew.com is being quoted as of saying..
"Chris Meloni has booked his first post-SVU gig — and it’s a bloody good one.

The former star of the Dick Wolf drama will join HBO’s True Blood  in season 5 as an “ancient, powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill and Eric in his hands.” He will be a series regular."
Read the whole article here Ew.Com 

I know if you're finding this out you're about as dumbstruck as me! I was like, "Whaaaaaaa!?!?!?!?" I couldn't believe that loving, sensitive, strong Elliot Stabler was on the other side of the blood now! Don't get me wrong! I think hes great! Hes a great actor, I just didn't expect it! I think watching Elliot be a vampire is going to be a fun,great, experience! But I sure do miss Elliot.
Let me know what you think about Elliot becoming Roman!


Book Review: Glitch by Heather Anastasiu

COMMENTS

Title: Glitch
Author: Heather Anastasiu
Genre: YA Sci-Fi
Expected Release: August 7th






In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network.

When Zoe starts to malfunction (or “glitch”), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.

As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.



Okay so this review isn't like my others as you can tell. Because I read Glitch and there was something off about it to me. Wether it was the dialogue or the story-line I have no idea but this book was just not my cup of tea. I've never been big on books where people lose all touch to emotion or just have no sense of emotion at all, but I decided to venture out and give Glitch a try.

Book Review: Arson by Estevan Vega

COMMENTS
Good Reads Synopsis:
ARSON GABLE FEELS LIKE A FREAK. HE CAN CREATE FIRE. HE NEVER ASKED FOR IT. HE NEVER WANTED IT. BUT HE CAN'T SHUT IT OFF.
Before now, three things were true: he both loved and despised his grandmother; his life was going nowhere; and he was alone. But when a strange girl--who feels more normal behind a mask than inside her own skin--moves in next door, Arson hopes to find something he's never had: purpose. After years of living in fear, he will be forced to confront his haunting past and embrace the unknown as he walks the fine line between boy and monster. Edgy, realistic, and breathtaking, Arson, the chilling chronicle of an isolated teenager with unimaginable ability, is set to ignite the hearts and minds of a new generation.
My review:
WOW. And honestly that is all I can say is WOW. I mean I have honestly never read anything that kept me just so engrossed! And I have read some great books but this puts the icing on the cake!

We start off meeting Arson Gable he is thinking about his past and we can tell right off the bat that he is troubled about something he has done. We learn about how his grandmother is not very fond of him. She loves him but something is not right there. He moves over to the dock and lake. He is being haunted by his memories and the steps into the lake. "The weight of remembering dragged him down in a filthy drag of water, his coffined body jerking. The veins on his head began to swell. He was choking." Sweet Goodness! Can it get anymore suspenseful? Can it pull you in even more!? Hell yes it can!

Let's Talk Characters:
Arson (Stephen) Gable is a seventeen year boy who is trying to live his life with his past. He is trying to move on. He lives with his grandmother whom is a person all her own. Arson has the ability to start fires with his mind. He can make his body catch fire when he is angry, sad, bothered, and or nervous. He thinks he is a monster. A freak. His grandmother has told him so all his life. His mother died giving birth to him and his grandmother won't let him forget it. He loves comics and wishes he was a hero, but he can't see himself as one. I see him as a strong and bold character. He is someone I would love to get to know to try and understand better.

As I have told you all before, buying books is getting expensive! So around Christmas time I invested in a Pandigital E-Reader. I didn't want to invest in a very expensive one because what if I didn't like it? Then I would have wasted my money! So I got my E-Reader and I hadn't used it. Around last Friday I made a decision to use some gifted money to buy books. Well buying them on the Barnes&Noble Nook Interface that the Pandigital Novel runs on was much cheaper than buying the paper books so I bought most of the books on my wishlist,

COMMENT
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
The prompt for this week is Top Ten Character Who Remind Me
 Of Myself Or Someone I Know In Real Life!


1). Kara from Perfect by Ellen Hopkins. Kara reminds me a lot of myself; she wants to take a chance on a new love, wants to please her parents, makes good grades. She had her share of problems but she kept a up look that reminded me of the perseverance I show when I have a problem. She is still trying to find out who she is and so am I.

2). Snow from The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod by Heather Brewer. Snow reminds me of one of my friends, Tabitha, she is a goth who is eager to please and just as sweet as can be. Goth is just the style she likes, not who she is and I love that about Snow and Tabby.

3). Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya reminds me of my friend Bella. Tohru does whatever she can to make sure everyone is happy. She worries about everyone else but herself. Bella does the same. She is as sweet as can be and she she makes everyone smile. She is so sweet and innocent its hard to ever be angry or not like her.

Vampire Academy (#1): Book Review

COMMENTS
Hello Everyone! Iyanna here! I am Elle's sister! I am a co-blogger here on Love Bigg. Read Bigg. If you would like to know more about me, check out My Itroduction Post --> Here. But today Me and my sister have read this book but she wanted me to do a review. I have finished this series but she hasn't so the reviews for this series will come out as she finished the books. Enjoy the review!

Goodreads Synopsis

St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger...

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

My Review:
When I really got into reading, I never thought that I would like books about vampires. My sister knew this so she got me to read this book to see if I would like it. I was skeptical at first, but once I started reading it, I was hooked. The way the book comes together is just too good.


It starts with Rosemarie "Rose" Hathaway and Vasilisa "Lissa" Dragomir on the run from gaurdians trying to take them back to St. Vladimir's, an academy for Moroi and Dhampirs. They've done well at running for two years, but unfortunatley their time on the run is up. Gaurdian Demitri Belivok and several others have caught up to them and are taking them back to the academy. On their way back, Demitri questions Rose on why she attacked when she was clearly outnumbered. She responds with a simple, "Because I'm her gaurdian."

Let's talk characters!
                In my opinion, Mead depicted the personalities of the characters, flaws and all, perfectly.

Rosemarie Hathaway is a dhampir that takes her responsibilities very seriously. She is the best friend and future gaurdian of Vasilisa Dragomir. She is a very sarcastic and impulsive person, but knows when to be serious. During the course of the book, she starts to get a clearer outlook on how life can turn out. She cares for Lissa and would do anything to protect her, even if that means getting kicked out of school.

Hey my lovelies!! I will not be doing this meme every week. Money is tight but I do have books on my shelves that I haven't even touched yet! But this week I picked up a couple of books and got two books for review. We will start with the books I got for myself.
I picked up these 4 John Green Books
Looking for Alaska [Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes&Noble]
Paper Towns [Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes&Noble]
An Abundance of Katherines [Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes&Noble]
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan [Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes&Noble]

I also picked up The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games [Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes&Noble]
Catching Fire [Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes&Noble]
Mockingjay [Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes&Noble]

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is a dystopian trilogy, that includes mayhem, violence, bloodshed, and one hell of a government! 
Many people enjoyed the Bad-Assery of The Hunger Games; I was very skeptical though. I have never really been a fan of dystopian novels due to the fact that I am not a ROBOT! I cry very easily and get emotionally attached to the characters I read about. SO the fact that there is killing going on TERRIFIES me to a level of bibliophilic despair! I'm torn between possibly reading the best dystopian set books I've ever read or crying my eyes out and being sad for a couple of days! I have bought the books, but I have only gotten to chapter 5 of The Hunger Games. I stopped to continue with school required reading, and I'm now still very skeptical of reading it. Please comment and tell me what you think!

The 2 books I got for review are
Pledged by Gwynneth White [Goodreads]

Arson by Estevan Vega [Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes&Noble]
