Twin Shot Tuesdays # 3

Image
Twin Shot Tuesday is a meme inspired by those "aha" moments where you go "Hey I know a song/book with the same name".  If its sounds confusing then check out my previous Twin Shot Tuesday post for a better explanation!
This week.. Its a Twin Shot of  Brighter than the Sun


Top Ten Tuesday (#3)

Image
Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read But Me
1. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins - I keep pestering my friend to get me her copy of the first book, but alas her memory just doesn't seem to be abiding!
2.The Umbecoming of Mara Dyers by Michelle Hodkins- I swear to you, everyday some blogger or the other seems to be reviewing this book! It makes the book take mammoth strides on my want-to-read-so-badly scale! 
3.The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare- Jace Wayland! So how cute is the guy, like actually! Most of the book blogging population is swooning over him. What am I missing out? 
4. Across the Universe by Beth Revis- This was making its rounds around the blog-o-sphere sometime ago. I wasn't sold on the idea (he he yeah I judge books by their cover!) But after reading so many reviews and blogger buddy's recommendation I feel daft not having read it!
5.Delirium by Lauren Oliver- I got super excited when I bought my first YA book ever- Before I Fall! And…

Be Now, Buddy What by Dan Spencer

Image
"A naked man survives a meteoric plunge from a cloudless sky, and a small-town TV reporter rushes to get the story. The fallen man claims amnesia and, despite widespread efforts,no one can identify him. The press dubs him Buddy What. When no clues surface about his identity and as details about the mystery man are examined, Internet devotees start worshiping him as a celestial being. With reputation, he accepts the call to become a spiritual guru. But as Buddy What grows into a worldwide phenomenon, controversies follow. Be Now, Buddy What is a satire about fame, the news media organized religion, and people who let strangers into their homes."
I received an e-copy of this book from Dan Spencer for reviewing. The pitch/summary of this book sounded hilarious, so I decided to read it.
Buddy What is a naked man who falls from the sky. For obvious reasons he becomes a media star and everybody wants to know his story, since he doesn't have one- a possible amnesiac- the media be…

TBR Tuesday

Image
TBR tuesday is a meme that gives you a chance to give your fellow blogger a chance to "peek at" your TBR. It doesn't neccesarily need to be a book you own physically (yet), just any book your looking forward to reading and have added to your TBR.


"The following lovely ladies have inspired this new meme for me - inspired by "a peek at my TBR" by Jen atMakeshift Bookmark, "Waiting on Wednesday" by Jill at Breaking the Spine and "Books to Pine For" by Kristi at The Story Siren."

                   -Lisa the Nerd @ lisa is busy nerding


Here is my TBR..Its an endless pile on Goodreads, but I will pick a few that I am 
absou-friggin-letly dying to read..

Day 16- Your favorite female character

Day 16- Your favorite female character
This one took me time to put into a post, LOTS of time. I pondered this question for an obnoxiously large amount of time. The funny thing is I rejected the first answer that came to me when I read the question and here I am back to keying in the same answer. I know this answer may make you roll your eyes, want to strangle me or perhaps yourself, maybe even un-follow me or spam me with annoyed mails.. But please don't because I am simply obsessed with the series, (I even started a blog dedicated to it.! It didn't work out very well because I am on a dry spell with post for it. Though I have 7 followers! :D ) See so I know you love me and will not to do any of the above!
My favorite female character is...you guessed it.. Rose "Rosemarie" Hathaway.. if you thought Lissa Drogmir...then Aha! Not so predictable after all eh? *chuckles*

"Rosemarie Hathaway is a 17-year-old Dhampir. With skin the color of inside an almond, long dark hair a…

Monthly Theme Post

Image
is something like a monthly meme!  Every month Sophistique Noir picks out a theme and uploads pictures related to the chosen theme. This month- September's theme is Boots! My favorite-est theme ever! I have a HUGE thing for boots, sadly I only two and out of those only one fits me! :( Nonetheless here are the photos I have put together for this Month's Theme Post






All of them depict the Theme Boots differently, hence the compilation.  The last one are my very own boots , the ones that don't fit me! :(  And can you believe it was the biggest size the store had! *hmph* my poor big feet!  Oh and the source for my pictures is We<3 it! Are you participating in the Monthly Theme Post event? Leave me a link to your post.
P.S. I know my selection isn't as dark as Sophistique's...*sheepish grin*
Oh! And a closure to the post..
