♠ Book Releases Today! ♠

In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they’re stranded with no help in sight. As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages. The town’s previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness — someone who is watching Maura and her friends. Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura’s charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend. The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless — and the chilling truth about Maura’s fate.



In Thor's formulaic ninth Scot Harvath thriller (after The Apostle), the ex–navy SEAL has lost his job with the disbanding under a new presidential administration of the Apex Project, a Department of Homeland Security secret antiterrorist program that didn't worry about obeying any rules. Fortunately, Harvath lands on his feet with the Carlton Group, funded covertly by the Department of Defense, with an identical mission. After a bus full of Americans is blown up in Rome, Harvath travels to Europe to track down a man known as the Troll, who's been implicated in the bombing. Meanwhile, John Vaughn, a Chicago cop who somehow moonlights as an attorney for private clients, seeks to identify the Middle Eastern–looking man who ran down a woman with his cab. Predictably, Vaughn uncovers a plot against civilian targets in Chicago. Bumbling CIA agents make members of the secret Carlton Group look even more heroic. Fans of TV's 24 may enjoy the over-the-top setups, but even they might wish for a little more sophistication.



As a lover of animals and nature, Beatrix Hathaway has always been more comfortable outdoors than in the ballroom. Even though she participated in the London season in the past, the classic beauty and free-spirited Beatrix has never been swept away or seriously courted…and she has resigned herself to the fate of never finding love. Has the time come for the most unconventional of the Hathaway sisters to settle for an ordinary man—just to avoid spinsterhood? Captain Christopher Phelan is a handsome, daring soldier who plans to marry Beatrix’s friend, the vivacious flirt Prudence Mercer, when he returns from fighting abroad. But, as he explains in his letters to Pru, life on the battlefield has darkened his soul—and it’s becoming clear that Christopher won’t come back as the same man. When Beatrix learns of Pru’s disappointment, she decides to help by concocting Pru’s letters to Christopher for her. Soon the correspondence between Beatrix and Christopher develops into something fulfilling and deep…and when Christopher comes home, he’s determined to claim the woman he loves. What began as Beatrix’s innocent deception has resulted in the agony of unfulfilled love—and a passion that can’t be denied…


It was meant to be an adventure—a night alone on a remote Irish island. Archaeologist Sophie Malone never expected to find Celtic treasure or to end up in a fight for her life in a dark, desolate cave. Now, a year later, she's convinced answers to the mysteries of that night lie in Boston. Is the recent violence there connected to her night of terror? Who has the priceless gold artifacts that disappeared from the cave…and who is responsible for the whispers she heard in the dark? Nearly killed in an explosion a month ago, Boston detective Cyrus "Scoop" Wisdom has recovered from his injuries. He's after the bomber—and he thinks it's another cop. But when Sophie unknowingly leads him to a retired officer's body amid symbols of ritual sacrifice, it's clear nobody's safe, and everyone's a suspect. Tough and stubborn, Scoop is the best on the force at detecting lies…except maybe those of Sophie Malone. Together Sophie and Scoop face the greatest challenge of their lives: someone is using ancient rituals to commit modern-day murder—and the killing has only just begun. 

Ruperto says, "Someone please give me a copy of ICE COLD! Hehehe. Looks like I really have to wait a year to read this book... Cheerz!"

A Gift From Afar

I started this blog last March of this year. I decided to create my own blog to further express my love of reading. Throughout the years, when I first started reading (I guess the year was 1995 to 2010) I rarely received gifts, especially books. I also joined the facebook community not so long ago, I was still using my friendster account then, but my cousin told me that facebook is a better way to connect with my friends and relatives. And now I am one of those people who blames the facebook community on why they haven't been logging in on their friendster accounts. Hehehe.



One day, while I was checking my facebook activities, a person I do not know, was requesting to be my friend. Since I don't have any friend from that country, I accepted her request and we became friends. I also found out that she was visiting my blog from time to time since the Live Feed on my blog reveals the location of a certain visitor from a different country. I was happy that she was reading my articles and book reviews. And then she asked me if I was interested on getting her books, she was giving them away as a gift to me! At first I don't want to believe her (I mean, this person, whom I know nothing about except her facebook profile and the fact that she told me that she also loves to read, is offering me her books for free!) but then she told me that she gave books to her friends now and then.


I told myself that maybe she is for real, so I gave her my mailing address and hope for the best. The following day, she again sent me a message, she told me that she already shipped out the books and I should expect them to arrive within 2 to 3 weeks! I was taken aback (gasp!) hehehe. But still, I was uncertain of this whole event. On June 23, I received a claim receipt from the postal office, informing me that I have a parcel from Japan. I couldn't believe it! I immediately got dressed and went to the post office. And there it was, a yellow package with my books inside. It was true!!! I was so happy! The books were in very good condition.



Here are the books:
1. The Given Day by Dennis Lehane
2. The Lost Boy by Dave Pelzer
3. The Devil's Feather by Minette Walters
4. A Wicked Snow by Gregg Olsen
5. A Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer
6. The 8th Confession by James Patterson







I want to thank my friend who gave me the books. I cannot express my gratitude for her act of generosity and kindness... She mailed these books with her own money and she went out of her way to give them to me... a total stranger... There are still good people out there! Akala ko wala na. God bless her and her family!

♠ Let Us Scream Again! Soon... ♠

Scream 4 (styled as SCRE4M) is an upcoming slasher film and fourth installment in the Scream series. It will be directed by Wes Craven, with Kevin Williamson, writer of Scream and Scream 2, and co-writer of Scream 3, serving as writer. Originally, the series was intended to be a trilogy, but after ten years Bob Weinstein thought it was time for another film. It is intended to be a "reboot"[1] of the series and the first of a new trilogy, with both Craven and Williamson signed on for the duration. The film is scheduled to be released on April 15, 2011.

Cast:

    * Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott
    * David Arquette as Sheriff Dewey Riley
    * Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers Riley
    * Emma Roberts as Jill Kessler; Sidney's cousin. She is described as "Pretty in an ingenue way. Smart, strong. A little goofy, but she makes it sexy. Full of contradictions, but instantly likeable." She is supposedly not close with her cousin Sidney.
    * Hayden Panettiere as Kirby Reed; Jill's best friend. "Cute and quirky, was a tomboy until a year ago... now she's alternative, and sexy. She's a pop culture, horror aficionado," and "a nerdy film geek".
    * Rory Culkin as Charlie Walker; "Messy cute... friends with Jill and Kirby. Likens himself to Randy Meeks without the geek part, but no so such luck... he's a geek. He may have a crush on Jill, but he'll never admit to it if he does."
    * Lake Bell as Deputy Judy Hicks; "Decidedly sexy, but a bit off. She went to high school with Sidney, although Sidney doesn't remember her. She perhaps likes her boss, Dewey Riley, a little bit too much.
    * Nico Tortorella as a unspecified role in the film.
    * Lauren Graham as Kate Kessler, the mother of Emma Roberts's character Jill.


Ruperto says: " Wow! I can't wait for this movie to come out! I've seen all the  Scream movies on cd, but haven't seen it on the big screen. The first three Scream movies were awesome! I hope this time around the movie will surpass the previous ones. I see that Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox are both back! Didn't think anyone can play Sidney better than Neve. And Hayden and Emma are also in the cast. Interesting. Targeting the Young Adult Market. Brilliant! Anyways, can't wait! Cheerz! "

♠ A Day of Book Releases ♠

A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed . . . can it be stopped? There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.  For Noah Gardner, a twenty something public relations executive, it's safe to say that political theory is the furthest thing from his mind. Smart, single, handsome and insulated from the world's problems by the wealth and power of his father, Noah is far more concerned about the future of his social life than the future of his country.  But all of that changes when Noah meets Molly Ross, a woman who is consumed by the knowledge that the America we know is about to be lost forever. She and her group of patriots have vowed to remember the past and fight for the future—but Noah, convinced they're just a bunch of freaky conspiracy-theorists, isn't interested in lending his considerable skills to their cause.  And then the world changes. An unprecedented attack on U.S. soil shakes the country to the core and puts into motion a frightening plan, decades in the making, to transform America and demonize all those who stand in the way. Amidst the chaos, many don't know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact—or, more importantly, which side to fight for. But for Noah, the choice is clear: Exposing the plan, and revealing the conspirators behind it, is the only way to save both the woman he loves and the individual freedoms he once took for granted.


"The joy of fiction is the joy of the imagination. . . ."The best stories pull readers in and keep them turning the pages, eager to discover more—to find the answer to the question: "And then what happened?" The true hallmark of great literature is great imagination, and as Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio prove with this outstanding collection, when it comes to great fiction, all genres are equal. Stories is a groundbreaking anthology that reinvigorates, expands, and redefines the limits of imaginative fiction and affords some of the best writers in the world—from Peter Straub and Chuck Palahniuk to Roddy Doyle and Diana Wynne Jones, Stewart O'Nan and Joyce Carol Oates to Walter Mosley and Jodi Picoult—the opportunity to work together, defend their craft, and realign misconceptions. Gaiman, a literary magician whose acclaimed work defies easy categorization and transcends all boundaries, and "master anthologist" (Booklist) Sarrantonio personally invited, read, and selected all the stories in this collection, and their standard for this "new literature of the imagination" is high. "We wanted to read stories that used a lightning-flash of magic as a way of showing us something we have already seen a thousand times as if we have never seen it at all." Joe Hill boldly aligns theme and form in his disturbing tale of a man's descent into evil in "Devil on the Staircase." In "Catch and Release," Lawrence Block tells of a seasoned fisherman with a talent for catching a bite of another sort. Carolyn Parkhurst adds a dark twist to sibling rivalry in "Unwell." Joanne Harris weaves a tale of ancient gods in modern New York in "Wildfire in Manhattan." Vengeance is the heart of Richard Adams's "The Knife." Jeffery Deaver introduces a dedicated psychologist whose mission in life is to save people in "The Therapist." A chilling punishment befitting an unspeakable crime is at the dark heart of Neil Gaiman's novelette "The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains." As it transforms your view of the world, this brilliant and visionary volume—sure to become a classic—will ignite a new appreciation for the limitless realm of exceptional fiction.



From the celebrated imagination of Dean Koontz comes a powerful reworking of one of the classic stories of all time. If you think you know the story, you know only half the truth. Get ready for the mystery, the myth, the terror, and the magic of…

Dean Koontz's Prodigal Son
Every city has secrets. But none as terrible as this. His name is Deucalion, a tattooed man of mysterious origin, a sleight-of-reality artist who’s traveled the centuries with a secret worse than death. He arrives as a serial killer stalks the streets, a killer who carefully selects his victims for the humanity that is missing in himself. Detective Carson O’Connor is cool, cynical, and every bit as tough as she looks. Her partner Michael Maddison would back her up all the way to Hell itself–and that just may be where this case ends up. For the no-nonsense O’Connor is suddenly talking about an ages-old conspiracy, a near immortal race of beings, and killers that are more—and less—than human. Soon it will be clear that as crazy as she sounds, the truth is even more ominous. For their quarry isn’t merely a homicidal maniac—but his deranged maker.



Yale professor Dr. Edward Kender's father is undergoing chemotherapy when the supply of a critical accompanying drug suddenly runs out. Unwilling to accept the drug company's disingenuous excuse of production line problems, Dr. Kender hires private investigator Erin Pulaski to prove there is something more sinister going on at Schiffer Engel's manufacturing facility in Indiana. Pulaski uncovers a bombshell-Schiffer Engel's intentional shortage is bringing in a windfall profit in excess of two billion dollars. When a top Schiffer Engel employee shows up viciously murdered behind the U.S. headquarters, Sherlock and Savich are called in to lend a hand. The murder of a foreign national on federal land can only mean the German drug company has a secret of epic proportions. --book descriptions courtesy of goodreads and barnes and noble

♠ Book Release Today ♠

In this sequel to 2009's Naamah's Kiss, Moirin, the devoted servant of a sex goddess, journeys across half of a fantasy version of Asia in search of her soulmate, Bao. In Tatar territory, she finds Bao... and his wife. His father-in-law, the Great Khan, is willing to go to great extremes to keep Bao and Moirin apart. Captured by the fanatic Patriarch of Riva, Moirin escapes to find that Bao has vanished again, this time headed toward the distant lair of the Spider Queen and her army of assassins. The romantic tale is marred by Moirin's narcissistic awareness that she is destined for a glorious fate that lesser mortals like Bao's jealous wife may only envy. Carey's storytelling ability is top-notch, however, and readers will applaud her willingness to resolve major plot threads in the middle book of a trilogy. --courtesy of amazon


" Book release today! Haven't read this author...Send me a holler if anyone is familiar with her books, I'd like a feedback of her writing style! Cheerz! "

♠ A Magical Woman ♠


Joanne "Jo" Murray (born 31 July 1965), better known under the pen name J. K. Rowling, is a British author best known as the creator of the Harry Potter fantasy series, the idea for which was conceived whilst on a train trip from Manchester to London in 1990.  The Potter books have gained worldwide attention, won multiple awards, sold more than 400 million copies, and been the basis for a popular series of films.  Aside from writing the Potter novels, Rowling is perhaps equally famous for her "rags to riches" life story, in which she progressed from living on welfare to multi-millionaire status within five years. The 2008 Sunday Times Rich List estimated Rowling's fortune at £560 million ($798 million), ranking her as the twelfth richest woman in Britain. Forbes ranked Rowling as the forty-eighth most powerful celebrity of 2007, and Time magazine named her as a runner-up for its 2007 Person of the Year, noting the social, moral, and political inspiration she has given her fandom. She has become a notable philanthropist, supporting such charities as Comic Relief, One Parent Families, Multiple Sclerosis Society of Great Britain, and the Children's High Level Group. --courtesy of wikipedia
 

 
Books by J.K. Rowling that I've read:

1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
6. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


J.K. Rowling is the female J.R.R. Tolkien for me, it's like these two are the mother and father of fantasy! I've read the entire series and the originality of it, for me, is what made these children's book popular around the world . It will be as timeless as the characters and the world the author created will last till the end of time. No kidding, it will.  Harry Potter is the best!

I reckon that I read the whole series on my 1st year in college. I read the books numerous times, still, it feels like I'm reading it for the  very first time again. 


Cheerz!

In My Mailbox #7: Meet Linda F.

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by  The Story Siren.
Hey people! Just finished watching Ugly Betty Season 4 last night. The last season. A total of 4 seasons all in all. The ending was quite satisfying. Since Betty got her braces removed and she did improved her dressing style. I gotta admit she's really pretty hehehe. Well, I'm sad because there won't be anymore Ugly Betty. I love this show so much. It's a blend of comedy, drama and a bit of action. Hehehe. Every ending of a certain episode, there's a moral lesson that you can learn. Okay, enough about Betty. On to my new book purchase. I've read  Linda Fairstein's The Bone Vault and loved it. And when I saw The Kills, I just had to buy it! Even though it's an on-going series, every book has a stand alone story. This book is only P30. Incredible right? In pristine reading condition I might add... Hehehe. Oh, and that's me in the picture, if you're wondering. Cheerz!

Review:The Shop on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber

 SYNOPSIS:
There's a little yarn shop on Blossom Street in Seattle. It's owned by Lydia Hoffman, and it represents her dream of a new life free from cancer. A life that offers a chance at love . . . Lydia teaches knitting to beginners, and the first class is "How to Make a Baby Blanket." Three women join. Jacqueline Donovan wants to knit something for her grandchild as a gesture of reconciliation with her daughter-in-law. Carol Girard feels that the baby blanket is a message of hope as she makes a final attempt to conceive. And Alix Townsend is knitting her blanket for a court-ordered community service project. These four very different women, brought together by an age-old craft, make unexpected discoveries -- about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to friendship and more.

MY REVIEW:

Book review! I just love doing book reviews! If I had started this blog earlier, let’s say 2000. I would have written a hundred of book reviews with all the books that I’ve read in the past years. It’s a pity I just started this blog last March of this year. Well, you can see on my Shelfari bookshelf that I’ve read over a hundred books and still counting hehehe.

Well, on to my book review. If I started reading a Debbie Macomber book, it’s impossible for me to stop. Her books are so enjoyable, refreshing and warm. I’m accustomed to reading suspense, fantasy, medical thrillers, and detective stories. And again, I’m not so much into the romance genre, only books that have really good stories and not the shallow ones. Hehehe. I tried reading them before, but I had this jarring experience that the stories are like recycled paper, it’s the same plot time and time again!

Having read Debbie Macomber’s entire Cedar Cove Series (Books 1 to 9). I was ready to go visit her Blossom Street Series.  The Shop on Blossom Street is her first offering. It was a blast! I enjoyed this book so much! The characters are all engaging and interesting. I especially like the character of Lydia, the owner of A Good Yarn knitting shop. She has cancer and survived the ordeal. Now she’s ready to go on with her life by opening A Good Yarn. She started a knitting class and there she will meet her dearest of friends. Jacqueline Donovan is one of Lydia’s students; I was sometimes annoyed with her character. She was a bit full of herself, maybe because she’s filthy rich. After her classes, she realized that there’s more to life than expensive clothes, a perfect house and other worldly things. Friends are a lot more valuable than anything she possessed in her life. Carol Girard, she’s another student of Lydia, I felt her sadness of not having the ability to have children. She tried everything to get pregnant but it wasn’t enough. Now her marriage is on the brink of collapse. But miracles do happen and it was given to her in a much unexpected way. I won’t tell you what happened to her, you’ll just have to find out for yourself. Hehehe. Now, Alix Townsend, she is my favorite character of the lot. She’s this pixie girl with a short hair like a punk; imagine Roxette, the one who sung “It Must’ve Been Love”. Anyway, that’s what I think she looks like. Her mother is in prison for an attempted murder case versus her father, she was left alone to fend for herself. She was tough, because you need to be one to survive the streets. But then I can tell that with that hard exterior she longed for love and a different way of life. She also enrolled on Lydia’s class, and there she found people who will become her real friends and will change her life...

I don’t want to divulge the details of the characters because my review would be so long! The series will continue on the second book “A Good Yarn”. I’m excited to read it! I want to know what will happen to their lives. It’s like watching a soap opera. Hehehe. It’s also good to escape into another world, you know, away from the books that I usually read. (Fantasy, Medical Thrillers, Detective Tales)

To wrap it all up, the book was unputdownable. It’s rare for me to give a 5 stars rating, but there it is at the bottom! Needless to say, the book was perfect. Hehehe. Cheerz!        
 

My Rating: 5 stars

♠ Massive Sinkhole Swallows Building ♠

Massive Sinkhole Swallows Building In Guatemala City In Wake Of Tropical Storm Agatha

As Guatemala emerged from the downpours of Tropical Storm Agatha, it was struck by another natural disaster - a massive sinkhole that swallowed an entire building.

The hole, which formed at a street intersection Guatemala City, looks like a near-perfect circle and according to reports, it spread beneath a three-story structure, which fell into it. A private security guard is believed to have been killed.

The storm's rain is being blamed for creating the sinkhole, which form suddenly without warning and can range in size. Sinkholes are found throughout the world.

Flooding and landslides from the season's first tropical storm have killed at least 150 people and left thousands homeless in Central America, officials said. Guatemala was the hardest hit, with officials putting the death toll at 123, with another 90 still missing. --courtesy of nydailynews.com

Ruperto says: " Wow... These pictures are very disturbing. This is the first time that I've seen this kind of natural disaster. Many people have died and let us pray for them. One thing entered my mind though, when I first saw these pictures. If you've seen the movie "Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer", there are scenes on the movie that has the same sinkholes like these pictures. Galactus, the supreme being who wants to suck the energy of the living things on Earth, used the Silver Surfer to create massive sinkholes. Pretty ironic and scary huh. Let us hope that this will not happen here in the Philippines because there are other countries that had this same sinkholes."

It's only right for me to choose Tess Gerritsen as the Author of the Month: JUNE for my blog. First, she's one of my favorite authors, and second, she will be releasing her latest book entitled ICE COLD on June 29th! It's impossible for me to get a copy since it's going to be on hardbound...And that's a bit expensive for me...Now, the long wait will come for me. A whole year to be exact or six months. I still have to wait for the paperback to come out. I've read all of her novels and they are all in paperback. Since it's way cheaper than the hardbounds. No matter, I'm willing to wait. I just need to stay away from sites that will be reviewing the book. I love Maura and Jane! And I'm very excited on the tv series on TNT. I hope I can watch it as soon as it comes out. Cheerz!
