Top Ten Tuesdays #9 - Top Ten "Gateway" Books/Authors In My Reading Journey

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday is Gateway book/authors, so authors or books that got you into reading or got you into a certain genre and so on and so forth.

Top Ten Gateway Books/Authors In My Reading Journey -

2818727670521
2136472146957215543

  1. Rick Riordan/Percy Jackson & The Olympians - Lighting Theif is truly the first book that I read and loved, the book that got me into reading, the book that made me love reading, and it is still my favorite book series ever and Rick Riordan is my favorite author ever. Not only did these books get me into reading but they are what made me realize that I want to be a writer myself, they truly are my first love.
  2. Hunger Games - The Hunger Games trilogy is really the first YA I read and it's what got me into YA books altogether and it remains one of my all time favorites.
  3. Harry Potter - What to say about Harry Potter? It's not what got me into reading, but it's still so much a part of why I love reading and writing, I still love it so much. The thing with Harry Potter is if you read any YA or middle grade book that came out after Harry whether you have read Harry or not it has effected you because a lot of these other books never would have existed without it, plus I really do love it.
  4. Cinda Williams Chima - What to say? This author has taught me allot of what I know about fantasy and has been a constant in my ever changing reading habits.
  5. Fablehaven - Taught me the best about fantasy and that it will always be my favorite genre.
  6. Pendragon - My first Sy-Fy book series and my first disappointment(the epilogue).
  7. Delirium - In a way these books showed me a whole other side to YA and books in general. I had read books about love and books about dystopian societies with a love/romance element but I had never read something that turned them into the same thing, that had all the romance elements and the beautiful writing but still made it more than that and in a way these books changed the way I perceived and judged books, I think for the better.
  8. The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight - My first contemporary and I have never looked back.
  9. Fangirl - It renewed my love of books and reminded me of the reason I love reading and it just speaks to me on so many levels that I couldn't not include it.
  10. Maximum Ride - Taught me what not to do when writing a book, it broke my heart because I loved it so much and taught me that even books can let you down.
  11. Bonous! - Tuned In by Julia DeVillers - Okay this is a relatively unknown series that my cousin gave to me when I was like ten and I devoured them, they were some of those books that I read before I loved reading, you know?
And on that happy note...
But seriously in one way or another all of these books have shaped into the reader and person I am today. =)

Update! April (2014)

  • Quotes Page I am coming for you! - I really will update it this month I swear!
  • Fangirls Spotlight - Okay I renamed Sharing Is Caring to hear all about it click here or the tab up top.
  • 300th Post - We are nearing the 300th post and I am planning ahead this time and promise that it will be better than the 200th post and the 100th post! Hopefully!
  • Book Tours! - I am participating in many book tours this month which is crazy because I have never done one before. Most of mine are just reviews, but a couple will have my favorite quotes from said book or a playlist inspired by said book and you know how much I love my playlists!
  • Reviews - I shall keep up with my reviews!
  • Balance - While this blog has basically morphed into a full on book blog I will try and do some other posts this month but I am busy and I really love books, as you know.
  • April 23rd - Is a big day for me, not only is it my 18th birthday(Happy birthday to me!), it is also the day that I shall wake up at the crack of the monkeys butt and send out my book to a handful of agents, eeeeeepp! I scared. So I also will be spending allot of this month preparing for that, I have revisions to finish up and emails to perfect and you know, control my panic attacks and whatnot.
  • My 18th birthday also means Tattoo Tattoo! I do already have a tattoo of the Mockingjay symbol from Hunger Games on my upper arm but where I live even with parental consent they will only tattoo places that can be covered in clothing and what I want is on my wrists, so look forward to pictures of that!
  • Also, I swear the re-read and re-review of Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson that I was supposed to do like two months ago is still coming!
I think that's everything?

Baking On Firday: Sugar Free Mango Lemonade

First of all, yes I know that today is Sunday, secondly I'm off to a great start on these baking on Friday posts, aren't I? But seriously, this week I have two birthday cakes to make and some banana pumpkin muffins, so yeah there will posts on Fridays!
Also, because I had food poisoning yesterday and I have to make two birthday cakes this week and I had a cold from last Friday through Tuesday I didn't actually bake anything so this week it's a drink, okay?


Sugar-Free Flavored Lemonade -
Blackberry Lemonade
Bookish-Pairing - I just read Catch A Falling Star by Kim Culbertson and in it the main character works at her parents cafe and they drink allot of flavored tea and lemonade so that is my pairing this week!

Ingridents -

  1. Fruit Of Choice - I did Mangos and used 4
  2. Water
  3. Lemon Juice
  4. sugar - I used Splenda
Directions -

  1. Peel/cut/chop your fruit of choice
  2. Puree your fruit of choice with 2 tablespoons water, 2 tablespoons sugar -Set aside 
  3. fill a pitcher 3/4 with water
  4. Start with 1 cup lemon juice 1 cup sugar and just keep adding until it tastes right
  5. Add fruit puree and mix
  6. Strawberry/mango lemonade
    and Raspberry Lemonade
  7. serve with ice
That has to sound like the stupidest recipe ever, I swear. But what I did was instead of adding all the puree to the lemonade I kept them separate with the puree in a jar in the fridge and then you just put 2 or 3 spoon fulls into the bottom of a glass, add lemonade, stir and drop in a few ice cubes and your good to go. I did it this way because I made multiple flavorings and then you can mix and match and what not. =)

Writing Update: March 2014

Key(as in map key) -
Dragon Heir - The book from the summer I wrote a book posts
War Of Queens - My NaNoWriMo 2013 project

Firstly I have started writing another book, why? Because I live for the chaotic! This one shall now and forever more be referred to as The Hunters Book, no info about it because I never share. Though honestly I wrote like five chapters and then decided to take it to the drawing board for awhile because it needs to be better developed before I actually write it and I need to do some research and whatnot.
On the War Of Queens front it is still a mess and I kinda don't want to go near it right now but I did have a slight break through wherein I may have figured out how to fix it. In case you don't know this is my NaNoWriMo 2013 book and it's a hot mess at the moment. I am going to send it to my brother(also know as my critique  partner) and he is going to try and help me flesh it out a little more.
As always Dragon Heir is my main concern and my brother and I have been working on yet another round of revisions to get it ready to send to some agents, exciting or terrifying? This is the series that I love the most, my first, and the one that I feel is almost ready, the one I want to get published and the one that is a five book series in my head. So, I have also been working on book 2 here and there but I am trying to stay focused on revisions!
I also wrote up my query letter and I talk about query letters in this post here.
So, that''s it, I guess.
How goes you're writing journey?

How To Write A Book In 5 Easy (read:hard) Steps

  1. Get an Idea - Not just some random idea, one you believe in, one you love, one you would want to read yourself, and one you believe that you need to write an idea that just wont leave you alone until the end.
  2. Figure out your system - Are you a plotter or not? Try a basic outline of major plot points that need to happen to get from the begging to the end, figure out the begging and the end, get to know your characters a little and decide whether you need to spend some time hammering out the fine details before you start writing or if you just want to jump right in.
  3. Don't stress - So you think one part really sucks, ignore it for now! Not everything is going to be perfect in your first draft and remember that you will have plenty of time to fix everything up all nice and shiny, concentrate on simply getting the basic story written out.
  4. Trust your judgement - You know what you like to read in a book, you love books, that's all you need to know. If you hate love triangles and insta love don't do that in your book, if you like the type of bad guy who a reader doesn't know whether to trust or not write that kind of bad guy, do what you as a reader would love. And if you start second guessing yourself sit down and think it all out and decide for yourself what is good and what is bad, you know everything you need to know about your book, every decision is up to you, don't focus on hundreds of would be readers focus on yourself and your story.
  5. Be True To Yourself and You Will Go Far - Don't give up on writing something because one person says it's a stupid idea or it's not what's popular right now, if you try to force yourself to write something that you don't believe in but that a publisher or whoever thinks will sell you're selling yourself short and you'll never really be proud of anything you write. Also, ignore what a lot of publishers or agents say about what will sell and what they want to see, don't base your book around what other people want, write what you want, because at the end of the day the story belongs to you.
Basically be yourself and don't force it, wait until you find the right story don't give up your writers virginity to the wrong idea! Could that sentence be anymore lame and awkward?

So, yeah. Believe in yourself and in gore the mean voices in your head, okay? Okay.

*Disclosure - This system will not work for everyone and I make no guarantees that this will help you in any  way to actually write a book.

Post #275! - Cover Reveal & Giveaway! Forever Layla by Melissa Turner Lee

Title: Forever Layla
Displaying Forever Layla ebooksm.jpgRelease date: May 27th 2014
Publisher: AltWit Press

BOOK SYNOPSIS:
What if the woman you envied most is the person you are destined to become?

In 1994, high school senior David Foster was the lackey and soundboard geek for his best friend's grunge band. During spring break, the band lands a dream gig playing at a motel in Myrtle Beach, SC. David expected all the girls to ogle the guys on stage, but when a beautiful blond "Bond Girl" approaches him and calls him by name, he's shocked to find out she knows more about him than a stranger should.

She even knows about his notebooks and his visions of time travel.

What she thought was a quick time-travel-sightseeing trip takes a surprising turn when she meets the young adult version of the man she'd heard stories about as a child. His fairy-tale romance with the woman he'd loved, Layla, inspired her to accept nothing less than a love just as strong...but hopefully not as tragic. When she won't tell the younger version of him her name, he calls her Layla--and the world as she knows it changes forever.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Displaying melissaturnerlee.jpgMelissa Turner Lee holds a BA in Communications with a concentration in Journalism from the University of South Carolina. She has studied fiction writing since 2008, attending various writing conferences and workshops, along with guidance from professional writing coaches.

Cover Lust Thursday - #6

This week is Cameron Jace books. I love most of the covers for The Grimm Diares Prequels and of course Snow White Sorrow, not so much Cinderella Dressed In Ashes or Blood, Milk, and Chocolate, however I didn't think it would work so great to put every single cover in this post so I picked my absolute favorites.

Review! These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Megan Spooner

These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1)About -
It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone. 

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help. 

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

Review -
How to describe this book - An adventure, survival, syfy, love story.
It was okay, that is the main thought I had in my head after finishing this book. I went in to this expecting it to pull on my heart strings and leave me gasping for breath, that's what I took away from the reviews I had read of it and that's not what I got. Let me start off by saying this is a good book, it's not a bad book, I can't honestly think of one thing I hated about it, I can't think of one moment I stopped waiting to love it and starting feeling nothing for it. It just wasn't for me, I guess.

Likes -
  -The Characters - I loved both characters which just makes it all the more confusing as to why I didn't like this book! The romance was sweet and slow and I love that but when they finally did get together and when all these bad heart breaking things started happening I didn't really feel anything, my heart didn't break for these characters the way I wanted it to.
  -I liked that it was a kind of survival story, I'm a sucker for a survival story.
  - Beautiful writing.
  - Characters - Again I really did love the characters!

Dislikes -
  - My main "dislike" I guess would have to be that I didn't really feel invested in this book. I don't know why, the writing was good, I loved the characters, just something about the book, the pace, the plot, just made me feel disconnected and while I was excepting this book to pull my heart every which way and keep me on the edge of my seat it just didn't.
  -I guess I felt that the over all world in this book, with all the planets and the terraforming could have be explained a little more, you kinda have figure it all out for yourself and it's slightly confusing at times.
  -While I liked that it was a love story/survival novel/ adventure/sy-fy I also feel that it was trying to be too many things at once and so nothing got enough attention.

In conclussion - The writing was beautiful, the characters were well developed and likable, it was just missing that 'pulling on my heart strings' factor that I so love in a book and that I was expecting in this book. And at some point along the way I kinda just stopped caring about this book for the most part. I got disconnected and never really connected again even when we got to the most important parts.

I gave this book 4 stars because It's not that it's a bad book it's just that at some point along the way it lost something for me, but I don't think that will happen to most people, I think most people will probably really enjoy this book. I guess for me it was just that it took too long to get where it was going and I kinda lost interest. I will probably at some point pick up the next book when it comes out just to see what happens but it's not something that I have the overwhelming desire to read the minute it comes out.

Waiting On Wednesday #7

Hosted by Breaking The Spine

Gaurdian (Proxy #2) -
17227209by Alex London
Pub date - May 29th

Description (from Goodreads)

The pulse-pounding sequel to Proxy! Inspired by The Whipping Boy and Feed, this adrenaline-fueled thriller will appeal to fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent.

In the new world led by the Rebooters, former Proxy Syd is the figurehead of the Revolution, beloved by some and hated by others. Liam, a seventeen-year-old Rebooter, is Syd’s bodyguard and must protect him with his life. But armed Machinists aren’t the only danger.

People are falling ill—their veins show through their skin, they find it hard to speak, and sores erupt all over their bodies. Guardians, the violent enforcers of the old system, are hit first, and the government does nothing to help. The old elites fall next, and in the face of an indifferent government, Syd decides it’s up to him to find a cure . . . and what he discovers leaves him stunned.

This heart-stopping thriller is packed with action, adventure, and heroics. Guardian will leave you breathless until the final page.

Why I Can't Wait - I can not put into words how much I loved Proxy and then you can multiply that by infinity and you might come close to how excited I am for Guardian, I would go so far as to say it is in my top 3 most anticipated of the whole YEAR! I want it now! Please?

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

Book Blitz! Twelve Steps by Veronica Bartles + Giveaway & Excerpt!


Twelve Steps
by Veronica Bartles
Release Date: 03/25/14

Book Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Andi is tired of being a second-class sibling to perfect sister Laina. There in Laina's shadow, Andi's only noticeable feature is her pretty awesome hair. And even that is eclipsed by Laina's perfect everything else.

When Andi’s crush asks her to fix him up with Laina, Andi decides enough is enough and devises a twelve-step program to wrangle the spotlight away from Laina. After all, great hair must count for something.

Step 1: Admit she’s powerless to change her perfect sister, and accept that her life really, really sucks. OK, maybe that's two steps in one.

Step 4: Make a list of her good qualities besides great hair. There have got to be at least three good qualities, right?

Step 7: Demand attention for more than just her shortcomings, and break out of her shell. Easier said that done, but worth the effort in the long-run. 

When a stolen kiss from her crush ends in disaster, Andi finds that her prince isn’t as charming as she'd hoped, and realizes she may need a new program--perhaps with less steps!

As cracks in Laina’s flawless façade begin to show, the sisters work together to find a spotlight big enough for both to shine.

Baking On Friday! My Version Of Dauntless Cake

Backstory - My Weekend - This was supposed to be posted Saturday, but I had a rough weekend. Friday I woke up with the tell tale signs of an oncoming cold, scratchy throat, stuffy nose, but it was my brothers' birthday and I had things to do so I was able to keep it at bay with an abundance of cold medicine, success! But it came back with a vergence Saturday, unfortunately Sunday was my friends birthday and the circus was in town on Saturday and we were supposed to go and I couldn't bail and so I spent the day at the circus and then playing Scene It all night. To say the least, I was completely miserable both Sunday and Monday! So this is like four days late but here it is -

So, Friday the Divergent movie was released in theaters! I haven't seen it! In other news it was my older brothers 19th birthday! This brother also happens to be my best buddy, my critic partner and occasionally my punching bag, so of course I made him a birthday cake! I don't know if you know this about me, but I kinda love baking, cookies, mainly, but I am branching out. Now one thing about my baking is that my, other, brother has diabetes and so everything I make is sugar-free. The cake I made is a double layer chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, chocolate mousse, strawberries and peaches, I am calling it the chocolate strawberry peach monstrosity or the chocotrosity! So I was on twitter seeing all these things about Divergent and decided my cake is a Dauntless cake!
Now every Friday I will make a new pastry/cake/cookies/something of some kind and post the recipe here, and maybe I will match it with books! I will leave links to the websites where I originally get the recipe from and then the actual recipe with whatever changes I made to it and most importantly Pictures!

Cake - Click Here For Orginal Recipe
Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups Baking Cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups SPLENDA® Sugar Blend for Baking
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Coat two 8-inch cake pans with nonfat cooking spray. Dust with flour. 

COMBINE flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Beat butter in large mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add SPLENDA® Sugar Blend for Baking; beat well. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla extract; mix until blended. 

COMBINE water and milk in medium bowl. 

ADD 1/2 of the flour mixture and mix at low speed until well blended. Add water and milk; mix at low speed until well blended. Add remaining flour mixture and beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon batter evenly into prepared pans. 

BAKE for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

The Frosting - Click Here For Orginal Recipe 
Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon liquid Chocolate stevia
  • ¼ cup softened butter

Directions

  • In a stand mixer add whipping cream and vanilla extract.
  • Beat on medium high speed until thickened. Set aside.
  • In a microwaveable bowl melt chocolate and coconut oil together for 1 minute, stir and continue to melt in 1 minute intervals until fully melted.
  • Whisk cocoa powder and chocolate stevia into melted chocolate.
  • Stir softened butter into chocolate mixture.
  • Add chocolate mixture to whipped cream and blend until incorporated.
  • Refrigerate until set, about an hour.
Changes I Made -
  • First of all I doubled it to make sure there was enough to cover my whole cake
  • I added an extra teaspoon of Vanilla - because I always add extra vanilla
  • And I added 2 Teaspons of unflavored liquid Stevia because the chocolate flavoring was a little bitter.

The Mousse - I improvised! I looked at a few different recipes and then kinda just winged it.
Ingredients -

  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Coconut Oil
  • Powdered Sugar - To make sugar-free click here
Now basically you
  • Melt Chocolate Chips in microwave with a tablespoon of Coconut Oil
  • Whip heavy cream with an electric mixer until peaks form
  • Add in the melted chocolate and powered sugar  - mix well
  • Dice up Strawberries - As many as you want - and fold in
  • chill until served
For the peach topping I was going to use fresh peaches in a peach glaze but I couldn't find fresh peaches and so I used pie topping! It tasted delicious though! The only problem is the peaches like to slide down the sides! =)

The End Result! -

Cover Reveal! Fragile Line by Brooklyn Skye

Fragile Line
Release Date: 04/21/14
Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:
It can happen in a flash. One minute she’s kissing her boyfriend, the next she’s lost in the woods. Sixteen-year-old Ellie Cox is losing time. It started out small…forgetting a drive home or a conversation with a friend. But her blackouts are getting worse, more difficult to disguise as forgetfulness. When Ellie goes missing for three days, waking up in the apartment of a mysterious guy—a guy who is definitely not her boyfriend, her life starts to spiral out of control. 

Perched on the edge of insanity, with horrific memories of her childhood leaking in, Ellie struggles to put together the pieces of what she’s lost—starting with the name haunting her, Gwen. Heartbreakingly beautiful, this poignant story follows one girl’s harrowing journey to finding out who she really is. 




About the Author
Brooklyn Skye grew up in a small town where she quickly realized writing was an escape from small town life. Really, she’s just your average awkward girl who’s obsessed with words. Her Best-Selling New Adult debut, STRIPPED, is out NOW! Represented by Bree Ogden of D4EO Literary Agency.
