The always lovely Green Angel has sent us another rad Book Revolution submission:
"Since my last participation, I have been reading a lot of books. I am not going to establish a list, but I would recommend two of them.
The first one is 'Secret Daughter' written by Shilpi Somaya Gowda. It is the story of a woman who gave birth to a girl in India. Unfortunately, she had to give her baby up. Through the whole, the reader is able to follow the life of the daughter and the mother separately.
The second one is 'Prisoner of Tehran' by Marina Nemat. The true story of the author who was arrested when she was sixteen in Tehran. It is a tough story, and I would not suggest reading it if you already have a bad of opinion of the Muslims. With this book, it is quite hard not having bad thoughts about them. Other than that, read it, it is an amazing story.
Before talking about my current book, I also read the trilogy of Fifty shades of Grey. Yeah, I did. Frankly, Christian Grey's past was the most interesting part of the book. I was so excited to know what happened in his childhood that made him so fucked up, I just kept reading it. But, seriously, the 'porn' part was too much at some point. They were like rabbits, always fucking with each other. And the end is really cheesy. Give it a try, but do not waste your money. It is a 'one-time read' book.
Now, I am reading a novella written by Sarah J Mass: 'Throne of Glass - The Assassin and The Empire'. Do not ask me to tell you about the story, I am not far enough in the 90 pages to tell you a lot about it. It is only about a woman who is an assassin 'Duh!'. So far, I like it and I am curious to see if I will be satisfied or not. I do not really believe that a fantasy can be completed in 90 pages. I am so used to the 500 and more pages, without counting on the trilogy stuff (for the 'short' fantasy ha!).
Anyhow, I am happy to be back *smile*"
Mucho thanks, Green Angel!
Our awesome buddy Andrew just sent us his Book Revolution shot for October (which happens to be my favorite month) -
Happy October Biblio Babes Kat and Cara. Hope you're getting in a lot of spooky reading. I told you guys I'd be sending in a Book Revolution photo this month. Its my first edition copy of "The Shining", which I got at a library several years ago. Yes, it was for sale, for a dollar, and when I saw it I said, "I'll buy that for a dollar!" Excuse my "Robocop" reference. The same day I bought this I also purchased a first edition "Cujo". So it was a pretty solid book day. Let's not forget that the sequel to the "Shining" is coming out next year, so its only fitting that this is my Book Revolution pick for this month.
I (Kat) collect Stephen King first editions in hardcover, so I fully appreciate your taste in books, bud. And any reference to a new King book makes me swoon.... Sigh. Can't wait!
Thanks for sending this in, Andrew! Much love!
You know it's an epic day for the BiblioBabes when a certain Bookworm Mommy send in a Book Revolution entry; there's nothing nicer than seeing her pretty face and a good book!
I haven't submitted a book revolution pick in a while & since I just started this series, I thought, what the heck!! I should check your reviews, but I'm goin to ask anyways, Have you read this series yet?? So far, I am in love!! I love being able to escape from my life & get engrossed in this world that George R R Martin created! I wish I had found these books sooner, but better late than never right??
I don't think either of us have read them (for shame!) but I (Kat) do have them on my KOBO. Heck, maybe one day I'll even read them! But as Bookworm Mommy says, better late than never!
Mucho thanks, pretty lady! We sure do love seeing your beautiful face!
It's finally August (after us long suffering Canadians had to trudge through Junuary and Julytober) and not only are we stoked to finally see some sun, but we've also got our first Book Revolution submission for August!
Hey Cara & Kat. Feels like forever since I sent you Babes a Book Revolution photo. Here's a book I picked up at my local shop. "The Ronin"- I'm a big fan of samurai movies so when I spotted this book, at a steal price, I just knew I had to have it. It was simply one of the best books I've read this year. It reminded me of all those great samurai films I've seen, only now as a book.
Thanks a million, Andrew! Now don't be getting any ideas from this book; we hear the life of a Samurai can get pretty complicated ;)
The BiblioBabes are lucky ladies, let me tell you! We can always count on Green Angel to send us something awesome, and her taste in books is pretty excellent ;)
"As you can see, I am in the bad side because I have a kobo. Why? I earnt an amount of money that I could only spend in Chapters/Indigo. Being happy with the library, I did not know what books to buy... so, I ended up with a kobo. At least, I do not have to wait such a long time for some books anymore.
Always J.R. Ward and the book that I was waiting for!!!!! First gay encounter in this one yaaaaaaaaaaaah! I am so excited! Even though it is not obvious on the picture ha ha ha! Time to read *Prrrrr* "
Thanks, Green Angel! Foxy ladies and great reads... what more could a person want?
J.R. Ward is one of my (Cara) favourite reads. These books are 'hard' to put down, if you know what I mean.
Here is our fan Green Angel and her June Book Revolution
entry. It's great to finally see a pic of the real you Green Angel!
I have been reading J. R. Ward series for 5 books until now, and I love it. In fact, reading that our heros could purr, it made me feel like a cat. As a consequence, I turned into a cat myself. *Purr*.
I have to say that both Kat and I enjoyed the creativity that went into this Book Revolution
entry. Thanks Green Angel!
The awesome Andrew sent this over for my Birthday (thanks Andrew! Mwah!) and picked a super epic book to post!
Happy Birthday Kat!! Its been quite a week. So I was thinking, what could I present to you? Well, just so happens that I have yet to send my Book Revolution photo. I hope you have a kick-ass day. I was going to put the birthday message with the photo but the writing was backwards. And looked all weird. In picking my book this month I had another in mind to use, but after the news of Mr. Ray Bradbury's passing, the book picked itself. This is The Vintage Bradbury. Just reading the titles of the selection of stories in this collection, which range from the simple and straight-forward ("The Dwarf", "Skeleton") to the inspiringly poetic("There Will Come Soft Rains" , "And The Rock Cried Out"). So I hope you are having a blast and enjoying a great read Kat. -XOXO Andrew
We've gotten two Book Revolution entries so far this month, from our badass loyal submitters!
The first is from Miss Roxanne, our bookworm yummy mummy:
In honor of your daily radness, I'm reading The Princess Bride. I am kinda ashamed I've never read the book, since the movie is so awesome, & I'm loving what i've read so far. Ttfn!
Thanks, Roxy! And BTW - that is an EPIC read! Prepare to be blown away!
Our second entry is from the rad Andrew (Radrew even?):
I'm quite a fan of the Barnes & Noble classics. They make them accessible and compressible for any reader. I've purchased a number of titles from their selection. I've read books that I previously would have found intimidating like the works of Dostoevsky, and Dante's Divine Comedy just to name a few. Here's me with my copy of "The Picture of Dorian Gray". One of my favorite sections of these books are the "Introduction" giving the reader some background on the author and the inspiration of the particular book. Happy reading Biblio Babes!
Muchas gracias, senor! Anyone who reads classics gets mad respect from us!
Thanks a million, guys! And keep on reading!
Wow, we are super excited for all of the Book Revolution
love we are getting this month. Must be the weather change making everyone randy ;)
Here is a picture from Cathy:
"This is my favorite book Little Women."
ADORABLE, right?! Thank you Cathy for your picture and love of reading.
Our Book Revolution winner for March ROXIE has been kind enough to send us not one, but two book revolution submissions this month! This is one busy girl; two books on the go and still manages to effortlessly pull off being a babe ;)
I just started Middlesex, it looks like a thought provoking read.
& I'm reading on my kindle Shutter Island. I'm enjoying both so far.
Thank you so much, Roxie! If there's anything we like more than people reading books, it's hot chicks reading books ;)
PS: LOVE your shirt!
