Type: Series (Trilogy)
Genre:  Sci-Fi, YA, /dystopia.
Expected Publication: August 14th 2014
The thrilling conclusion to Janet Edward’s sensational debut YA sci-fi trilogy.
Jarra never wanted to be a celebrity. All she ever wanted was to gain some respect for the people left on Earth: the unlucky few whose immune system prevents them from portalling to other planets.
Except now she’s the most famous Earth girl in the universe – but not everyone in the universe is happy about it, nor the fact that she has found love with a norm. Jarra’s actions have repercussions that spread further than she ever could have imagined, and political unrest threatens to tear apart the delicate balance of peace between humanity’s worlds.
On top of everything, the first alien artefact ever discovered appears to be waiting for Jarra to reveal its secrets. But to do so, she must somehow find a way to leave Earth – or else the alien artefact will be lost forever. Is there a way for Jarra to travel to another planet? Or is her destiny only to look to the stars – but never to reach them?
So what are you waiting for ?

Movie Review: Frozen

Movie Title: Frozen
Directors: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
Writers: Jennifer Lee (screenplay), Hans Christian Andersen
Stars: Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel |See full cast and crew
Genre: Animation | Adventure | Comedy
Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.
My Rating:
Some people are worth melting for- Olaf, Frozen
Ramblings (Review):
I watched Frozen a while back with my cousins and two adorable little nieces (age 4 & 3). As soon as the movie started the older one said that she is Elsa while the younger one picked Anna. The movie started out great and ended amazingly I absolutely loved it there was nothing in it that you couldn't like. I just have to say it but anyone who disliked this movie is a cold hearted person. It is so beautiful and so much more unique then any other Disney animated films and the songs *sigh* they are absolutely beautiful I just can't get them out of my head! not that I want to. And there is even some suspense in it. There is a twist in the ending itself! Also it is better than Tangled! there I said it ! sorry Eugene and Rapunzel.
And Olaf <3 <3 <3 he is the best and I want him! he is a snow man all cute and fluffy and he loves summer, and warm hugs!
He is probably the best side character by disney yet. 
And then there is the beauty of it all it's a really beautiful movie seriously it is beautiful materialistically as well as on a deeper level.
It deserved the Oscars it got completely and utterly hell I say it should have gotten two more!
Also two firefighters sang “Let it Go” from “Frozen” to soothe a girl stuck in an elevator with her mother and young brother.
“I’m slightly embarrassed to admit this, but yeah, I pretty much knew all of (the words),” one of the firefighters said. Read more about it here.

This movie is for every one no matter how hardcore or old you think you are Frozen will melt you right off your bones. It's filled with warmth and fuzziness and once you watch you won't be able to stop yourself from seeing it again!

Waiting on Wednesday # : Skin Game (Dresden Files#15) by Jim Butcher

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this we write about books we are desperately waiting to get our hands on.
My pick is:
Book Title: Skin Game  (The Dresden Files #15)
Author: Jim Butcher
Type: Series
Genre: Urban  Fantasy, Paranormal, Mystery.
Expected Publication: May 27 2014
Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day….
Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful.
He doesn’t know the half of it….
Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains—led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone—to break into the highest-security vault in town so that they can then access the highest security vault in the Nevernever.
It’s a smash-and-grab job to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure hoard in the supernatural world—which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the freaking Underworld and generally unpleasant character. Worse, Dresden suspects that there is another game afoot that no one is talking about. And he’s dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Especially Harry.
Dresden’s always been tricky, but he’s going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this mess—assuming his own allies don’t end up killing him before his enemies get the chance….

I have been waiting for this one right after I finished the one before it. Dresden files is my favourite series and I desperately need to read this!
So what are you waiting for ?

4. Attend comic con and a few other cons.
5. Intract with the authors. I have never interacted with an author except for the one time I sent a fan girl message to Suzzane Selfors, and she replied I was all giddy inside. I would love to meet Veronica Roth, Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green, Rae arson and several others.
6. Win a giveaway or ARC.

My short disappearance...

Hello guys I am back after mystically disappearing for over two week hopefully someone noticed.... anybody???  woohooo.... 
*cricket chirps*
I guess I am not as popular as I thought yet.
So now that I am back I thought that I should at least explain a bit about my absence. The reason I haven't been blogging is that I was out saving the world from ultimate & untimely DOOM you know the usual one where everything and everyone goes BOOM. 
And then I had to go to the all species conference they were having at Mars to discuss with the aliens the potential benefits of not invading Earth and then wiping out all of humanity, I think I convinced the Martians , the Jupetirere and the Mercurians but the Plutonions, them I don't know they are really pissed at us because we don't consider Pluto a planet any more. So there could be an invasion of tiny cold blue people any time soon therefore, I'll have to disappear again to save the planet. Buy warm clothes cause there touch could give you a brain freeze.
After the conference I had to practice a few spells and hexes cause you never no when an evil sorcerer my act on his plan to take over the world. Had to keep the skills sharp.
Fun times yes...
Ok so here's what really happened though I doubt you would want to read this ...
My midterm exams came so being the nerd I am I had to study, like a lot and blogging is really fun so I had to get it completely out of my mind  in order to concentrate on my studies therefore I went poof.
Boring I know right well what can a person do really.
What wasn't boring though was the awesome slumber party that I had with my friends on the day of my last exam we watched movies, had pillow fights, played charades and did all kinds of crazy stuff, and yes 18 year old's can have fluffy girly slumber parties hell I say 90 year old can have them too I plan on having one when I turn 90 if I survive that long I live a pretty uneventful life but my clumsiness reaches extreme levels so there is sort of a 50-50 chance.

Waiting on Wednesday #2: This Shattered World (Starbound #2) by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this we write about books we are desperately waiting to get our hands on.
My pick is:
Book Title: This Shattered World (Starbound #2)
Author: Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner 
Type: Trilogy
Genre: Young Adult,  Fantasy, Sci Fi.
Expected Publication: 11 November, 2014
The second installment in our epic Starbound trilogy introduces a new pair of star-crossed lovers on two sides of a bloody war.
Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met.
Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet's rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents.
Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the inhospitable planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion.
Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.
The stunning second novel in the Starbound trilogy is an unforgettable story of love and forgiveness in a world torn apart by war.
These Broken Stars was absolutely thrilling and amazing I really can't wait to read it's sequel.
