It could be a book you read as a child and still remember and love or maybe just a book that you haven't read in a long time and want to show your love for.Each week we'll be featuring a new random question to answer!
My pick this week: 

First Drop Of Crimsom (Night Huntress World #1)
The night is not safe for mortals.

Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows – her best friend is half-vampire Cat Crawfield – and she has already lost more than the average human could bear. But her family’s dark past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness – and a demon shapeshifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who craves a taste of her.

He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluri…

Review "Out of line"

Out of line by Jen McLaughlin
Desperate to break free…
I've spent my entire life under my father’s thumb, but now I'm finally free to make my own choices. When my roommate dragged me to my first college party, I met Finn Coram and my life turned inside out. He knows how to break the rules and is everything I never knew I wanted. A Marine by day and surfer by night, he pushes me away even as our attraction brings us closer. Now I am finally free to do whatever I want. I know what I want. I choose Finn. 
Trying to play by the rules...
I always follow orders. My job, my life, depends on it. I thought this job would be easy, all the rules were made crystal clear, but when I met Carrie Wallington, everything got muddy. She's a rule I know I shouldn't break, but damn if I don’t inch closer to the breaking point each time I see her. I’m ready to step out of line. And even worse? I’m living a lie. They say the truth will set you free, but in my case…
The truth will cost me everythi…

Woods wednesday is in dedication to a story me and Stephanie from Bookfeverhave going on Goodreads. I am currently editing the story and to make that move faster I have decided to start Woods wednesday. It will mean that every wednesday I will share a picture, collage, maybe even a little teaser from some of the previous added chapters or maybe even some from the part that we are currently working on. It could also be a characters bio, an interview with one or one of the many facts about Geoff Woods.And of course also add a new chapter (hence making it move faster) to Goodreads every wednesday.Today me and Stephanie have made an interview for our protagonist Krysta. First we have a speedround with questions and then next week there's some questions to get more information about Krysta so stay tuned.

My teaser: 
So I haven't started a new book yet since I had an exam paper, but that paper was about Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen so why not share a teaser from that ^^

Feature & Follow #1

Image
Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted on friday by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read to gain new followers and make new friends!


I've been wanting to start this meme for a while and finally got myself together and did it. Now I'll have fun visiting many new blogs, can't wait! 

Question this week:
Bookagram: Photograph your fave read in a funny place.

I took Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost and put it in the cage with my bunny Pyrus. Not some place I would ever leave it as he would eat it or something. I had to bribe him with raisins to keep him from biting on the book and to even get him to stand still long enough for me to take the picture. 

Say hi in the comments and leave me a link to your post :)
