Publicado por Paulina J. en 21:44 7 comentarios


The Feature &and and Follow is hosted by TWO hosts,  of Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

This weeks Feature:


What is the biggest City you live Near (Or Interesting Landmark)

I live in Mexico City which is the largest city in Mexico population is estimated to be 8, 851, 080. I have a love hate relationship with this City, I love all the things I can do here, I mean I've lived here my whole life and I still haven't finished exploring but I hate that that it's so crowded and it's sadly warm most of the time .

But please let me show of this lovely place I call home:


Panoramic view of Chapultepec Forest
If you find yourself visiting don't forget to go to the Chapultepec Forest, it has many trees, a lake the zoo and it even has it's own Castle, the only Royal Castle in North America, it housed an emperor once and it's currently an amazing museum. 

As for more natural landmarks I would recommend going to Puebla to be closer to the volcanoes Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, both volcanoes are large enough to bee seen from Mexico City but they are located in another state. I'm especially fond of them because they look beautiful, they used to be a natural shield against invasion, they prevent tornadoes from forming but most importantly they have a legend based on them that you can read here


View of the volcanoes from Mexico City
Overall I love living in a valley it gives you a great view the only con is that we get earthquakes at the most random times.

Waiting on Wednesday (39)

Publicado por Paulina J. en 5:30 5 comentarios

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spinethat spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


My pick this week is:

Title: Between the Spark and the Burn 
Series: Between #2
Author: April Genevieve Tucholke
Expected Publication: August 14th 2014

The conclusion to Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea, this gothic thriller romance with shades of Stephen King and Daphne du Maurier is a must-read for fans of Beautiful Creatures and Anna Dressed in Blood.

Freddie once told me that the Devil created all the fear in the world.
But then, the Devil once told me that it's easier to forgive someone for scaring you than for making you cry.
The problem with River West Redding was that he'd done both to me.


The crooked-smiling liar River West Redding, who drove into Violet's life one summer day and shook her world to pieces, is gone. Violet and Neely, River's other brother, are left to worry—until they catch a two a.m. radio program about strange events in a distant mountain town. They take off in search of River but are always a step behind, finding instead frenzied towns, witch hunts, and a wind-whipped island with the thrum of something strange and dangerous just under the surface. It isn't long before Violet begins to wonder if Neely, the one Redding brother she thought trustworthy, has been hiding a secret of his own . . .




I have mixed feelings with the first book but I did like it enough to want to read the second one.

Monday Book Recommendations (4)

Publicado por Paulina J. en 5:30 0 comentarios

Monday is the day I choose what new books I’m going to start reading but I have so many books in my To Read Pile that sometimes it’s hard to decide so I have decided that on Monday mornings I’ll recommend my some of favorite books.

The Inheritance Cycle

I have to admitt this was one of those book I got because there was going to be a movie, so being the snob I am I got the book just so I could point out everthing wrong with the movie (P. S. almost everything) it surpised me that I really enjoyed the book but you can hardly go wrong with dragons. My only complaint was that inmy opinion many things were left unresolved but apparently the author might write another book for this series and other books set in Alagaesia.


 Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle #1)
Eldest (The Inheritance Cycle #2)
Brisingr (The Inheritance Cycle #3)


Inheritance (The Inheritance Cycle #4)

This weeks Feature:


What is your favorite tv series that you can watch over and over again on Netflix?
I have two go to series that I watch over and over are Friends and How I Met Your Mother. Both series are quite similar and I preffer the earlier seasons but they never fail to put me in a good mood.







Organizing E Books

Publicado por Paulina J. en 5:30 0 comentarios
I always see posts where people show how they organize their bookshelves but I’ve never seen anyone mention how they store their e-books.
I personally use Calibre E-Book Management, which is a wonderful app that allows you to store, convert organize you e books and many things more and it's 100% free.


There are many ways to display yout Library and ways to organize your books, I personally preffer having a cover browser and a list with the books info, I also like the books to be organized alphabetically by series.

I like how it's easy to use aand how well it works with my kindle and iphone but I have to say that my favorite feature is the converter you can choose from the basic .pdf, .mobi and epub to other formats I didn't even  know existed

Waiting on Wednesday (38)

Publicado por Paulina J. en 0:00 1 comentarios

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spinethat spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


My pick this week is:


Title: Mortal Danger
Series: (Immortal Game #1)
Author: Ann Aguirre
Expected Publication: August 5th 2014
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Edie Kramer has a score to settle with the beautiful people at Blackbriar Academy. Their cruelty drove her to the brink of despair, and four months ago, she couldn't imagine being strong enough to face her senior year. But thanks to a Faustian compact with the enigmatic Kian, she has the power to make the bullies pay. She's not supposed to think about Kian once the deal is done, but devastating pain burns behind his unearthly beauty, and he's impossible to forget.

In one short summer, her entire life changes, and she sweeps through Blackbriar, prepped to take the beautiful people down from the inside. A whisper here, a look there, and suddenly... bad things are happening. It's a heady rush, seeing her tormentors get what they deserve, but things that seem too good to be true usually are, and soon, the pranks and payback turns from delicious to deadly. Edie is alone in a world teeming with secrets and fiends lurking in the shadows. In this murky morass of devil's bargains, she isn't sure who—or what--she can trust. Not even her own mind...



I'm a huge fan of Ann Aguirre, after she finished her Razorland Trilogy I've been waiting for her to write something new and this is it.

Top Ten Tuesday (32)

Publicado por Paulina J. en 22:57 0 comentarios

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and The Bookish.  Each week a new top ten list is posted, and to participate all you have to do is fill in YOUR top ten for the list.
This week is Top Ten Characters You Would Like To Have With You On a Deserted Island
Since I have zero survival skills, for nature at least I’m a pro for surviving the City, I’d probably need people or in this case characters that now how to survive in non ideal circumstances and perhaps someone important so that my odds of being rescued.

1)      Dimitri Belikov: It first I was going to choose Rose but considering that I’m in a deserted island I think I would need someone more levelheaded that Rose.
2)      Katniss Everdeen: She knows how to make the best out of every situation so I’d really want her with me.
3)      Hermione Granger: Magic and brains could come in handy when you are in the middle of nowhere
4)      Saphira: She is a dragon so she could probably fly my back to civilization.
5)      Prince Maxon: As the heir to a throne he is a person of interest so I think the world would make an effort to try and find us.
6)      Magnus Bane: He has magic and his disposal and a fun personality that would make the stay in the island more bearable.
7)      Sidney Sage:  She’s wicked smart so she could probably find a way to escape or survive.
8)      Gwyneth Shepard: She can travel thorough time so probably she could stop me from getting to the island in the first place.
9)      The Darkling: He's handsome and powerful and has an army that would hopefully do anything to get him back.

10)   The Black Dagger Brotherhood Warriors: Powerful, handsome, smart vampires; they’d probably wouldn’t be able to help much during the day but they could watch over me while I sleep.

The Accursed Kings 
I read the first book in the series in the 8th grade as part of an assignment for my World History Class and I fell in love with it so much that my parents had to buy me the complete series. It's not Young Adult it's Historical Fiction that showcases the french royal family 1300's; George R. R. Martin called it the original Game of Thrones.


The Iron King (The Accursed Kings  #1)
The Strangled Queen (The Accursed Kings  #2)
The Poisoned Crown (The Accursed Kings  #3)


The Royal Succession (The Accursed Kings  #4)
She Wolf (The Accursed Kings  #5)
The Lily and the Lion (The Accursed Kings  #6)


How a King lost France (The Accursed Kings  #7)*


 *I wasn't able to find an edition in English for this one.

Waiting on Wednesday (37)

Publicado por Paulina J. en 22:55 0 comentarios

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spinethat spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


My pick this week is:


Title: Extraction
Series: Extraction #1
Author: Stephanie diaz
Expected Publicaton: July 22nd 2014
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin 

Clementine has spent her whole life preparing for her sixteenth birthday, when she’ll be tested for Extraction in the hopes of being sent from the planet Kiel’s toxic Surface to the much safer Core, where people live without fear or starvation. When she proves promising enough to be “Extracted,” she must leave without Logan, the boy she loves. Torn apart from her only sense of family, Clem promises to come back and save him from brutal Surface life.

What she finds initially in the Core is a utopia compared to the Surface—it’s free of hard labor, gun-wielding officials, and the moon's lethal acid. But life is anything but safe, and Clementine learns that the planet's leaders are planning to exterminate Surface dwellers—and that means Logan, too. 

Trapped by the steel walls of the underground and the lies that keep her safe, Clementine must find a way to escape and rescue Logan and the rest of the planet. But the planet leaders don't want her running—they want her subdued.

With intense action scenes and a cast of unforgettable characters,Extraction is a page-turning, gripping read, sure to entertain lovers ofHunger Games and Ender's Game and leave them breathless for more.


Although the cover creeps me out a little bit I'm very interested in this new series, it has a very interesting premise.
