Bookalization #1: Frostbite

Hello everyone! 

I really don't know if there's a section like this one in any other blog. But this is going to be my new section called Bookalization. 

What is it going to be? 

Another thing I enjoy doing is listening to music and singing along. 

Sometimes when I listen to music I picture some character in some specific situation on the book that I can imagine would be feeling what the song says or that would sing that song to someone else. 

I thought I could be sharing this with you. 

I will be posting the lyrics along with the scene I picture it and maybe explaining why. 
I will hang a link with the song and if the song is in spanish I'll do my best to translate the essence of it rather than what would sound good to the melody. 

Would be REALLY important to mention that if you haven't read the book, it might and will contain spoilers. 

So I'm starting.

Short News

Hello Everyone! 

I have abandoned the blog more than it was already. 
But now I am determined to make it come alive again. 

Policies have changed so please read them. 

For all authors and publishers: I will NOT be accepting any more books for review until further notice. 
This is because I have a LOT of pending requests. 

The last Blog Tour I'll be taking part of will be announced shortly. After that I am not joining any Tours or Blitz because I won't have read your book in time. 

Since I still have 150+ requests I made myself a system for priority. 
Like a Triage.
So here it is how I will work for this requests. 

  • Curiosity Quills. 
  • Physical books.
  • Netgalley.
  • Kelsey's BPS. 
  • Inkitt. 
  • Indie. 
  • Self-Published. 
I will post all the books that I am missing when I am done organizing the requests. 

Thanks for reading.

Twice Upon A Time

I know its been a long time since I posted a review.  So I'll post some in the near future. 
But for now... Here we go

Today I am introducing a very interesting and exciting book which you were already able to see on the blog. 

But here we go with a more complete way to introduce you to the book. 

Title:  Twice Upon A Time
Original Title: Twice Upon A Time 
Author: Hope Irving
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services
Genre: YA, Paranormal, Romance
Release Date: Oct. 31st, 2015


Once upon a time, there was the wandering soul of Morgann, an 8th century Irish calligrapher-monk longing to be reunited with his soul mate. Deirdre was his forbidden love, a witch with whom he wrote a coveted book.

Under her spell, the souls of the star-crossed lovers travel from bodies to bodies until they find each other. Eventually.
That became his quest: unearth her new body and trigger her memory, for she is clueless about whom she once was. Unfortunately their story didn't get a chance to become a fairy tale yet it still turned out as a famous urban legend referred as The Black Angel Book. 

Twice upon a time, not so long ago, there was me, rational and devastated Rose. I needed to get a grip, said my French mum after my year of numbness due to a painful break-up that led me to cut my wrist daily, to feel something, anything.

So she sent me off to the free-spirited village of Provincetown, Massachusetts, to spend the summer with my American relatives. And just like that, I wasn’t myself any longer. Because someone pulled me out of the darkness and bewitched me, somehow.

I couldn’t wait to jump his bones… but why was he holding back?
He couldn’t wait to welcome me into his world… but was I ready to question my convictions and acknowledge that my self-inflicted cuts were now healing in record time?

How could I have imagined he was longing for his own unorthodox fairytale to come true? Frantically

Just a quick notice.

Hello Storytellers. 

If you are still around and you still read everything I write... I want to say a big THANK YOU.

One busy year after another. 
I knew it was going to be this way but I couldn't stop myself from opening this blog. A blog to talk about one of my passions, the books. 

I am starting a new journey which will take me a little longer to update or write any post. 

However I am not giving up. 
Every once in a while I will have some time which I will use to upload the post. Which I will be writing on word or a notepad or a notebook if I must. 

So thank you for your patience this last year and please, once again, be patient with me. 

To all the authors and publishers: 
Thank you for your consideration of my blog. Thank you for the patience on me reading your books, (which actually takes me a LONG time to finish) and for the patience on publishing  your Review (mostly) and all the wait on me answering the emails. 

I am not going to be able to attend any Tour request but I'm so thankful for the ones that have asked me to participate. 

Mystery and Thrillers are books I enjoy reading but take me a while to do so... Thats why I won't be reading as much of this genres, except for the ones I've already accepted or the ones I've requested. 

I will continue on reading the books I previously got and publish the reviews. 
So Thank you again for the patience. 

And once again to everyone reading the blog... 


Hope to see you around, don't forget to leave comments or hit me up on the email, I will answer as soon as possible.

November Keys

Hello Storytellers!!
Today I have a new post about an incredible book. 
Greed, Mystery and Gangsters. 

Title:  November Keys
Original Title: November Keys 
Author: Brian & Michael Turner
Publisher: New Generation Publishing
Genre: Comedy/Thriller
Release Date: Sept. 8th, 2014


November Keys Inhabitant 
"If we had known, we would not have sold the club. I admit we succumbed to greed but we did not realise we were putting our heritage at such risk. They did take the team to great heights but the consequences were disastrous." 

American Gangster 
"They asked for what they got. Did they seriously think that we were interested in some run down hick football club?" 

November Keys Inhabitant 
"Our benevolent buyers turned out to be ruthless. We had never experienced a murder in our village before. Not unless you include Cheryl's cooking." 

American Gangster 
"What did you expect? They had something I wanted. Something life changing. Do you think I was going to get it by playing peek a boo?" 

November Keys Inhabitant 
"Although we celebrated Harvesting Leaf Day and talked about the creatures in the tree, we did not actually expect to see them." 

November Keys,a quaint village that was ready to sell its soul to the Devil for hastily promised riches. However, when the Devil buys he expects to collect. A very funny tale of greed, gangsters and things that go bump in the night.
