afterus About AFTER US: "Beautiful, lyrical writing and a dangerously suspenseful plot. . .an unforgettable novel that readers will love." --Lucy Connors, author of The Lonesome Young

Sometimes secrets kill. Maybe slowly, maybe painfully. Maybe all at once.

Melissa smiles. She flirts. She jokes. But she never shows her scars. Eight months after tragedy ripped her from her closest friend, Melissa is broken. Inside her grows a tumor, fed by grief, rage, and the painful memory of a single forbidden kiss.

Javier has scars of his own: a bullet wound, and the memory of a cousin shot in the heart. Life in the States was supposed to be a new beginning, but a boy obsessed by vengeance has no time for the American dream. To honor his familia, Javier joins the gang who set up his cousin's murder. The entrance price is blood. Death is the only escape.

These two broken souls could make each other whole again--or be shattered forever.

Our time will come. And we'll be ready.

After US by Amber Hart



    Book Description






“Sometimes secrets kill. Maybe slowly, maybe painfully. Maybe all at once.
Melissa smiles. She flirts. She jokes. But she never shows her scars. Eight months after tragedy ripped her from her closest friend, Melissa is broken. Inside her grows a tumor, fed by grief, rage, and the painful memory of a single forbidden kiss.
Javier has scars of his own: a bullet wound, and the memory of a cousin shot in the heart. Life in the States was supposed to be a new beginning, but a boy obsessed by vengeance has no time for the American dream. To honor his familia, Javier joins the gang who set up his cousin's murder. The entrance price is blood. Death is the only escape.
These two broken souls could make each other whole again--or be shattered forever.
Our time will come. And we'll be ready.”


I have to say that this books will definitely be on my list of favorites, I love everything about it from the little  mixtures  of Spanish and English, and I was able to understand since I’m latin, and how well Amber describe the characters and their feeling towards each other and the way they made the other feel, I end up with this HUGE, crush on Javier, that I was looking through all the latinos actors that could play his role. This book is filled with drama and romance and all this thrill that leaves you wanting more.


I feel so honored to be one of the first people to read this book and I highly recommend it to everyone this book is for real one of the kind.


This book would be out on December 30 but you can pre-order it in the links below.

About INSPIRE:

Kalliope lives with one purpose.

To inspire.

As an immortal muse, she doesn’t have any other choice. It’s part of how she was made. Musicians, artists, actors—they use her to advance their art, and she uses them to survive. She moves from one artist to the next, never staying long enough to get attached. But all she wants is a different life— a normal one. She’s spent thousands of years living lie after lie, and now she’s ready for something real.

Sweet, sexy, and steady, Wilder Bell feels more real than anything else in her long existence. And most importantly… he’s not an artist. He doesn’t want her for her ability. But she can’t turn off the way she influences people, not even to save a man she might love. Because in small doses, she can help make something beautiful, but her ability has just as much capacity to destroy as it does to create. The longer she stays, the more obsessed Wilder will become. It’s happened before, and it never turns out well for the mortal.

Her presence may inspire genius.

But it breeds madness, too.

 

Inspire Teaser 3

Excerpt:

I can feel Wilder’s breath against my lips. More than that, I can see it. The sun has set and the temperature has dropped, and air fogs between us. There’s something about actually seeing it, like our lips are touching, we are touching, despite the distance between. And as we sway from side to side, my heart gradually begins to pick up speed.

The strains of guitar music flowing out from the restaurant are nearly indecipherable over the heavy heartbeat in my ears. But Wilder must hear it. His hands are strong on my body, guiding my movements, and I’m practically clay in his palms.

We dance, eyes on eyes, lips nearly on lips, and there is lightning beneath my skin each time his body brushes against mine in a new way. His touch is firm, but gentle, never pushing or pressuring, though I can tell from the dark look in his eyes that he’s just as affected as I am. The music shifts, building to a crescendo, and he spins us. My chest pushes tight against his, and I bite back a gasp. I don’t know if it’s the cold or him or some combination of both, but the tips of my breasts are painfully tight. Just the pressure of my bra is enough to rub them raw.

I remember the night at his apartment, the way he’d taken his time learning my body. I think of the heat of his mouth on my skin, and the memory alone is enough to make me shiver and clench.

He’s back to being business, grown-up Wilder tonight in his button down and glasses. Only now that I know him, it doesn’t seem like such a stark difference. He is neither the straight-laced man nor the tattooed bad boy. Or perhaps he’s both. Regardless of what he’s wearing, Wilder is caring and loyal and strong and so sexy that I’m having trouble remembering why I shouldn’t push him into the backseat of his SUV and crawl on top of him.

Keeping her by Cora Carmack

As you all know, after reading losing it by Cora Carmack I was totally in love with the book and did a book review on my YouTube Channel about it and you can check it out by clicking here.
 
After meeting in a super awkward situation and having  one of the most crazy and complicated relationship ever Bliss and Garrick somehow made it all work and end up together and I know we all end up wanting more of those two crazy love birds and Thanks God Cora Carmack did the right thing and wrote "Keeping her"  is a little sequel of the book where we get to experience more about Garrick and Bliss relationship now that they live together and most important when Garrick and Bliss  travel to London to meets his parents, Bliss is nervous and Garrick keeps telling her that everything is going to be alright but from the moment they land in London things start to get a little weird between them after seen how different they really are from each other, falling in love was  easy now they had to work to keep it.

This books is really awesome just like losing it, I really enjoyed it and I love the fact that there is mixed emotions and not everything is perfect and in this book we also get to see Garrick's Point of view.

Have you guys read it?, if not I really recommend it.

 Hi guys!, I know it has been a while since my last post but I'm back and I have so much to talk about. but First things first <<insert Iggy Azalea voice here>>  This week a new TV show call Red Band Society premiere on Fox and I have to say that the show is like nothing I have seen before, I loved every single minute of the episode I loved it so much to the point where just 60 minutes weren't enough.


The story is based in a group of kids that live in a hospital band together to make the rest of their life worth it, and  putting a side any thing that is not living in the moment and staying close to what makes them feel a live, plus there is a crazy nurse (Octavia Spencer) who will make you Laugh Out Loud, The Hot doctor (ave Annable) that will make you want to be under his treatment, The sexy and intense Latino,(Nolan Sotillo)  the mean  girl who's heart is not that cold after all (Zoe Levin) , the lonely heart who is actually the coolest guy (Charlie Rowe), the life of the party (Astro), the beautiful genius girl with an eating disorder << Rusher right here! anyone?, I love Ciara Bravo>>    and of course the cutest little thing (Griffin Gluck).

 Here are a few pictures just to prove  how much I love this show after just one episode and why you should watch it too. And if you do watch it, and I know you will, you may want to have tissues near by, just saying.

The Fault in our starts book review, movie.

The fault in our stars  is a book by   New York Times #1 best seller author John Green

Over View :


Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.



The movie is coming out on June 6 2014 here is  the trailer
Directed by: Josh Boone and Starring by Shailene Woodley as Hanzel Grace, Ansel Elgort as Augustus Waters, Nat Wolff as Isaac, and many more. The books is really beautiful and I think the movie will be beautiful as well.

I can't wait to see the movie what about you?
