Bellow is an Extract from one of my favorite novels by this author: The Handmaid's
I used to think of my body as an instrument, of pleasure, or a means of transportation, or an implement for the accomplishment of my will . . . Now the flesh arranges itself differently. I’m a cloud, congealed around a central object, the shape of a pear, which is hard and more real than I am and glows red within its translucent wrapping.

This is one of my favorite quotes from the book even though the whole book is basically a pro- feminist campaign I think this is bit the drives the key idea. I think I like it so much because I connect with it on some many levels . I feel as a woman, and especially in my African culture, I have some many plans for my life but then I am told that theses plans have to be put on hold because my duty is to be a wife and a mother. I envy the vivid imagery and the symbolic metaphors that Atwood uses in the piece; they truly are exceptional

Top Ten Tuesdays

Top Ten Tuesday: Books For People Who Like Bloodlines

Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish that features a new topic each week where we have to put down our top ten answers 

TASK:  Top ten book resolutions for the new year 

1. Find a Co-blogger : I had a co blogger and she was the most amazing person ever she complete redirected me as a blogger. when she left I told myself I would get one but i never did. I even when as far as posting it on my other social media site but when it got down to actually choosing someone I never did 

2.Read books I promise to reads: I have this problem with telling authors Im going to read there book ..... but I never get round to it either because I forget or because I just didnt like the books plot to begin with. Which brings me to my next point ..
eelf b
3.Do not be afraid to tell authors NO: I am so afraid of telling an author I'm not interested in their book that I just say yes to just about any one. I usually don't reply whose books sound boring , but then I feel bad and tell them Ill read it when I know I will mostly likely not 
4. Read more books out of the NA genre: I know know my blog is suppose to be a new adult blog but that doesnt mean I should branch out every now and again in to other things .

5.Read all the my netgalley books: I have to say that I speak for a lot of blogger when I say I have not even half of the books a requested on netgalley. Its got soo bad that I had to make a new netgalley account because I kept getting rejected for everything.

6.Post more comments on peoples blogs: I get upset sometimes about the lack of comments on my blog but yet I don't comment that much on other peoples blog. I need to stop being a hypocrite and change my blogging ways.
7. Befriend and support more bloggers : Blogging is a tough business so us blogger need to be there for each other, most especially for new bloggers.

8. Stop comparing my blog to others: I find myself always being jealous of other peoples blog . I feel this little demon whispering things in my ear like why is not your blog as nice or why don't you have so many followers . I need to understand that I have accomplished a lot this year and so what if my blog is no parajunkie my blog is still nice.

9. Blog more !!!!: Im never really that consistent in my blogging i could be going strong for like two weeks then stop blogging for like a hole month. I promise myself in 2014 Ill post at least 3 times a week.

10. MAKE MY BLOG STAND OUT: I think the best way to do that is to personlised my blog more it should not only be about books theres alot of stuff people my age are also into. Also add so more unique aspects to my blog like new features and things like that 

Soooo theses are my goals for 2014 (God help me to follow them ) so come on tell me yours.

GIVEAWAY :Addicted to you by Collina Brennan

Brennan - Addicted to You hires.jpg
Publishing date: June 25th 2013
Publisher: Self Published 
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance


When twenty-one-year-old Leah Carter's latest one night stand burglarizes her apartment, her roommate forces her to attend therapy for sex addicts. Leah insists she isn't a sex addict; she just doesn't do relationships. After all, sooner or later, everyone lets you down.

At first, the group sessions are little more than an education on how to be promiscuous. Until she meets the newest addict—blue eyes, killer body, and a smile that tempts relapse.

Psychology student Will McLean is posing as a fellow addict while researching a case study on unusual addictions. But the more he learns about Leah, the more certain he is that his desire to break through her walls and unearth her secrets has nothing to do with his assignment.

As the uncertainties spike alongside the sexual tension, the only thing Leah knows for sure is that falling in love would be disastrous. Too bad love might be one addiction she can't kick

Leah hated Thursdays. Specifically, she hated what she was forced to do on Thursdays—a program called ‘Heal the Heart, Save the Body,’ which was a convoluted way of saying ‘therapy for sex addicts.’
Despite her roommate’s insistence, Leah did not have a ‘sex problem.’ So she liked the occasional one night stand. So what? She was twenty-one and single. There was nothing wrong with wanting to make the most of it.
Yet here she was, preparing for another session where she’d have to listen to some old guy attempt to teach a room full of so-called sexual deviants the skills to function in a civilized world.
Because left to their own devices, they wouldn’t be able to resist the primal urge to hump everything that moved. Obviously.
Who decided sex was an addiction anyway? Or that someone should need therapy to “fix” it? Sex was good for you. It was a de-stresser. If it wasn’t, then you were doing it wrong.
She made a face at the platter of cookies set on an uneven seat a few feet away. She had tried one of them a few meetings ago, and it had nearly broken her tooth. They were sturdy enough to survive a nuclear apocalypse. They were cockroach cookies.
Maybe that was the key to these therapy sessions—to knock everyone out with stale confections so they were incapable of having sex.

Yes guys its that time again and because you guys have been so patiently waiting, Im going to give you something to compensate you for all your troubles.

Eversea (Eversea, #1)Publishing date: June 4th 2013
Publisher: Self Published 
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance


An orphaned, small-town, southern girl, held hostage by responsibility and self-doubt.

A Hollywood A-list mega-star, on the run from his latest scandal and with everything to lose. 

A chance encounter that leads to an unlikely arrangement and epic love affair that will change them both forever. 

When his co-star and real-life girlfriend is caught cheating on him with her married and much older director, A-list hottie, Jack Eversea, finds himself in sleepy Butler Cove, South Carolina. Jack hopes the sultry southern heat in this tiny coastal Lowcountry town will hide him not only from the tabloids and his cheating girlfriend, but his increasingly vapid life and the people who run it. He doesn’t count on meeting Keri Ann Butler. 

Keri Ann has relied on herself so long, dealing with her family’s death and the responsibilities of keeping up her family's historic mansion, that boys and certainly the meager offering of eligible boys in Butler Cove, have never figured into her equation. But fate has other plans. Suddenly face to face with the man who played the movie role of her favorite fictional character, Jack has Keri Ann yearning for everything she has previously avoided ... and Jack must decide whether this funny, sassy girl is worth changing his life for, before his mistakes catch up to him.

Jazz grabbed a poker from the fireplace, and we both skidded on sock feet to the front door. I looked out of the peephole, but with no lights on I couldn’t really see a thing.
“I can’t see anything,” I whispered, and then jumped back as another round of banging started.
“Keri Ann?” Jack’s voice shouted over the wind and rain.
“Oh my God.” I mouthed to Jazz.
Her eyes were wide.
Do you think he got my message?”
“Shit, I don’t know,” she whispered back, her shoulders hunching up.
“Keri Ann? Please ... please open the door. I really need to talk to you.”
What the heck was he doing out there in the rain? Obviously, I was going to have to let him in. I could feel mortification and it’s crimson tide crawling up my chest to my neck.
Jazz shrugged with an apologetic ‘this is your mess, I have no clue how to help you here’ look on her face.
Thanks!” I hissed at her.
“Keri Ann! Open the Goddamn door ... please?” Jack’s voice broke over the last word and my shoulders slumped.
Jazz rolled her eyes.
I opened the door as a huge gust of wind blew in and wrenched it out of my hands. It swung back hard banging against the wall. And there stood the tall looming shadow of Jack, hands on either side of the doorframe, in jeans and a dark wet t-shirt that clung to his body. Water streamed down his beautiful face.
“For the love of shrimp n’ grits, girl,” I heard Jazz murmur next to me as we both took in the archangel standing on the threshold. “Good luck.”
I shivered.

Amazingly Broken By Jordin Williams

Hi guys,
I just want to clearfiy something I am not dead. I repeat I'm not dead . And I know I have not really posted anything in like a million years but I have actually been so busy. So for being such good followers and waiting  for me Im going to give you a well earned treat. YAAAH A GIVEAWAY!!!.... sorry guys that is not it but there will be one for this book and many other goodies later so hold on tight.

Life threw Elana a curveball... Elana’s mother died in Iowa and she was left to fend for herself with an abusive and drunken father who could care less about her well-being. After years of heartache and pain she graduated from high school and moved to Florida to go to college with her best friend Tiffany. A new beginning... That’s where she met Jaxon. He was everything she didn’t need. He was a cocky, tattooed, and a beer drinking musclehead. He was the type of guy that she normally would have avoided given her circumstances but when he offers her a bed to sleep on she can't say no. She never thought that she would discover they weren't much different from one another and that he had his own secrets and scars he didn’t want revealed to anyone...

Author Interview 

Q. Can you tell us about Amazingly Broken?

A. Sure, but I’ll keep it short and simple so I don’t reveal anything. Elana moves to Florida to go to college. She wants to get away from her father so she can start a new life because the past few years had been tough for her. She meets Jaxon who has dealt with things that are just as bad. Over time they learn of each other’s secrets and realize they are both amazingly broken…

Q. How did you come up with your title? 

A. It just came to me suddenly because Jaxon and Elana are both broken but they’re also amazing. So I decided Amazingly Broken was perfect.

Q. How did you decide to become a writer and share your work with everyone? 

A. I kept reading books and after a while I realized how many were by indie authors, A LOT. I said, “I can do that.” Now I’m trying prove it.

Q. If you could do anything other than be an author, what would it be? 

A. Professional speaker for teenagers because life can always get better! I’ve been there.

Q. What was the hardest part about writing Amazingly Broken? 

A. Reliving my past since Elana’s past is based off of mine.

Q. Is there something in particular you like listening to or eating/drinking when you write? 

A. Coffee!

Q. If you could pick a soundtrack to match your main character’s life, what would it be?

A. Broken Bones by Rev Theory 

Q. I saw you've actually done a bit of writing as a ghost writer. Were there any surprises writing under your own name for the first time? Did it make you nervous?

A. It made me really nervous because it’s my real name on the line now. Before, it’s up to the client to fix the story up. Now I had to do it myself.

Q. So when you're not lost in the worlds you create what other types of things do you keep busy with?

A. Frisbee golf and reading!

Q. What, if anything, are you working on right now? 

A. Well I’m in the planning stages of a book for her best friend. Something tragic happens to her boyfriend

Q.What song do you say goes best with your book ?

"Broken Bones" by Rev Theory “Falling Away From Me” by KoRn “Falling Into You” by Celine Dion “I Believe” by Diamond Rio “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum “Better Days” by Goo Goo Dolls "I'm With You" by Avril Lavigne "Gorilla" by Bruno Mars “Is This Love?” by Whitesnake “End of the Road” by Boyz II Men “As Long As You Love Me” by Backstreet Boys "Addicted" by Saving Abel
"It's just rain toots, nothing to worry about," Jaxon said, walking behind me and cupping my shoulders.
      I turned and smiled. "I know. We have it in Iowa too.”
      “I know but you looked scared.”
      “I’m not. By the way, thanks a lot for not bringing a bunch of drunk girls to the apartment the past few nights," I said. 
      Jaxon’s dead silence alerted me that there was another side to the story. My brown eyes turned suddenly fierce.
      "Oh my god, are you kidding me?" I raged. "I should have known. I swear I should have known."
      He looked at me as if to put me in my place. "Why does it matter? You do remember that you said we were just friends, don't you? You said to be quiet next time so I was," he said, crossing his arms. He sat and slouched in the wooden chair.
      The statement made me pause. My face went stone cold. "Well, yes. But…"
      There was always a "but" in my conversations. I had an uncanny way of changing my opinions at the flick of a switch.
      "First, you want nothing to do with me. Then, you are angry that I was sleeping with other girls. Then, wasn't happy to not hear from me at all," he said. "You're f*cking messing with me."
      I looked at Tiffany and Lance who were sitting in silence and exchanging worried looks.
      "The only way you could be mad at me is if you liked me," Jaxon said. "Unless you…" A smile curved my lips. He pointed a finger toward me and grinned. "You do like me. You're just too chicken shit to tell me. I know your game."

      "Hey, don't you ever liken me to poultry?" I said, feeling suddenly scared that the truth was out.
