http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0139X8G1E/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0139X8G1E&linkCode=as2&tag=readiculoupea-20&linkId=I64ZAE77ODVYWTBP
Synopsis:
To undo a mistake made a thousand years in the past, the wizard Hellsfire used his magic to bring down the Great Barrier that once divided the northern and southern lands. In doing so, he nearly brought war to his own homeland, and he afflicted the love of his life, Princess Krystal of Alexandria, with a potent and deadly curse.
Since then, Hellsfire has been working in Tyree with its Elemental Council, to rebuild its war-torn land and find a way to break Krystal’s curse. Now Krystal’s time is running out. As the princess fights for her life, Hellsfire learns that the wizard responsible for the curse—his old enemy Premier—is heading to the Burning Sands to steal the mysterious Jewel of Dakara.
If Hellsfire can capture Premier and learn the secret of the curse, he can save Krystal. But the Jewel of Dakara holds its own deadly secrets, and the hunt will take Hellsfire farther than he ever imagined, and cost him more than he bargained for.

The past is never gone nor buried...

Synopsis:
Fifteen-year-old Michelle saves the world on a daily basis…with her trusty video game controller, of course! Naturally, she jumps at the chance to play an experimental virtual reality game.
The beautiful fantasy world of Starrs? Check. The power to mold matter? Check. No reset button? Wait, she didn’t sign up for this!
Turns out Starrs is really real, and to make matters worse, Michelle’s interference awakens the Cycle of the Six Moons, a series of devastating trials that will devour the universe.

Fighting the apocalypse was way easier when danger stayed on the other side of the screen, but Michelle finds a secret weapon in her new-found powers. She uses them to rescue the crown prince of a powerful magic kingdom from their sworn enemies, a technologically-advanced cult that strives to eradicate magical blood.

Michelle starts to fall for Prince Jayse, the only one who believes Michelle to be a savior rather than a curse. But not even video games could prepare her for what the cult has in store for them…

What to expect from RP soon!

So I don't know about you, but these last few weeks have been completely hectic and quite a drag.

So here is what to expect these upcoming days/weeks/months to come:

Cover Reveal: United (The United Trilogy #1) by Jaci Wheeler

Book: United (The United Trilogy #1)
AuthorJaci Wheeler
Release Date: January 19th 2015

Synopsis:

United America runs like a machine. Everyone has a job and a purpose to make the country run smooth and efficiently. Nothing is left up to chance. The people are under constant monitoring for the good of the Country. After careful consideration every citizen is given their career at the age of sixteen. "Rosaline, come now!" ordered President Vaughn. Sixteen-year-old Rosaline Thatcher got up from her seat among her classmates and walked toward the stage. The sound of her blood pumping resounded deeply in her ears and, perhaps for the first time in her life, a reminder to breathe was necessary. All eyes were on her. She knew this day was coming, the day when she would be asked to serve her country in the career path chosen for her, but as she moved closer to the stage with President Vaughn and further away from her parents and dearest friends, she wondered why she was being singled out. What future lies ahead for Rosaline? In a country where citizens blindly follow the rules, what will happen when one girl dares to defy them, and what does that mean for United America?

Movie Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

My rating:

After a heavy and hard day of work, managing complaints, problems and technical and complex queries, my boyfriend and I decided on a whim to finally watch the finale part of Mockingjay. This was something I did not want to pass on, since I've been anticipating towards this movie since the day I finished the final installment of the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins.

So with a heavy (and a little sleepy) head, I headed out in the rainy, merciless autumn stormy weather, determined to get my butt in that comfy cinema chair and display myself towards the big screen. Mockingjay. Was it everything I expected? Did it stay as close to the book as genuinely possible? Did I get my closure of the end of this beautiful series by Suzanne Collins? Well, do I have a lot to tell you.

Introducing: NearSt!

Last week I was contacted by a very interested group who have recently launched a very clever and innovative concept, which definitely benefits not only you but also your local bookstores. The concept is fresh and comes in the form of an app which you can download on your mobile or tablet called, NearSt. Now what is NearSt exactly and what does it stand for?

What is it?
NearSt's mission to get people back into their local bookshops. Some of us may forget our bookstores since everything is so conveniently in our reach through the online stores at the click of a button. But this convenience is taking a toll on bookstores around the world, and these guys want to bring a positive change. For those readers who do not always have the time to browse through bookstores, they’re given a simplified solution which benefits both parties (the buyer and your local bookstore).

Synopsis:
The world isn't just black or white. Sometimes it's red... They think I'm next. That I'll be the seventh kid to step in front of a train and end my life. With the rash of suicides at my school, Mom's shipped me off to my dad's Wyoming ranch for “my own safety.” They think I’m just another depressed teenager whose blood will end up on the tracks. They don't know my secrets...or what I’ve done. I wasn't expecting Dad to be so sick, for the ranch I loved to be falling to bits, or for Jake—the cute boy I knew years ago—to have grown into a full-fledged, hot-as-hell cowboy. Suddenly, I don't want to run anymore, but the secrets from home have found me...even here. And this time, it's up to me to face them—and myself—if I want to live...

As she digs her way through the hay bales to retrieve her money, the unstable stack collapses, pinning her to the back of the barn. Crushed and running out of breath she’s sure she’s a goner. Then the wall’s boards break from the hay’s weight creating a hole which Sig tumbles through. Her landing is hard, made even harder by discovering she’s landed in a different world, dark with evil and danger. Even stranger is the barn cat who jumps through the portal with her helping her navigate through this strange world, and a difficult journey of discovery.

Synopsis:
All Carrie Roberts wants is to be a little bit smaller.
To fit into the perfect dress for the Valentine’s Day Dance. To look beautiful for her boyfriend, the school’s star basketball player. To keep his jealous ex-girlfriend, a rival cheerleader, away from him. And to be noticed by her classmates.
Exercising and dieting don’t work, but an advertisement for weight loss pills promises a quicker solution to her problem. As time runs out, she takes more than the recommended dose until she’s just a few inches slimmer. Heads turn when she arrives at the dance, and the wonderful night with her boyfriend is beyond what she dreamed it would be.
Days later, Carrie discovers that her body is changing in ways that should be impossible. While her doctor searches for a cure, she desperately turns to her friends and family for support. Everyone is noticing her now whether she likes it or not, and even the media is intrigued by her incredible story. Getting everything she once wanted has created new problems—problems that are growing more terrifying every day. Because Carrie Roberts is shrinking.
