Update: A break...again...

It seems summer has come and with it a whole lot of breaks. As you may have noticed, I haven't posted anything for a little more than a week. I've tried to post some things but they would just be filler, and I don't like to put up empty content. So I decided to take a break, relax, READ, and just work on getting back into things. I'm super drained of energy and busy as a bee. Reading in June has been non-existing...

I'll be around. Mostly on Instagram just taking some pictures of books XP I'll also be around on YouTube, I might film some things. But for the most part I'll be actually working on something pretty epic and crazy adventurous in my life. I don't know exactly when i'll be back but I'll see you soon. Until then...

    Spread the Love Thursday : Fallen in forbidden love... [ INTRO & BUTTON ]

    Hey guys, since I've been getting things ready for the Mail YA box for July, I was tinkering around and decided to show you some things people who subscribe will be getting in the monthly boxes. [--> For more info, click here, I ship internationally too <---]

    This is kinda like Teaser Tuesday but with books you've already read and/or loved, not just current reads. Anyone can participate and can be as creative as you want. Just leave me a comment if you did one :) I just took a quote from a book I loved and made a button that anyone can grab and put on their blog. This is actually going to be a sticker, so you can put it anywhere you want!

    Here is the button for my favorite series, which is FALLEN BY LAUREN KATE. I read this way back in 2011 and still have the entire story in my head. Which is rare since I can't even remember what I did yesterday @_@ It's definitely more for the younger crowd, I enjoyed it way more back in High School but I still re-read Fallen when I want to remember my High School days.


    THAT'S IT! HAVE YOU READ FALLEN? LIKE THE BUTTON? EXCITED FOR THE JULY BOX OF MAIL YA? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS!

    Waiting On Wednesday - Lizzy [ 58 ] : The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow

    So lets start with my Waiting on Wednesday. I love doing this meme every Wednesday. "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're anticipating.

    THIS WEEKS BOOK I'M EAGERLY WAITING FOR IS...


    Title: The Scorpion Rules
    Authors: Erin Bow
    Published Date: September 22nd, 2015
    Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
    Pages: 384
    ADD IT ON GOODREADS!
    A world battered by climate shift and war turns to an ancient method of keeping peace: the exchange of hostages. The Children of Peace - sons and daughters of kings and presidents and generals - are raised together in small, isolated schools called Prefectures. There, they learn history and political theory, and are taught to gracefully accept what may well be their fate: to die if their countries declare war.

    Greta Gustafsen Stuart, Duchess of Halifax and Crown Princess of the Pan-Polar Confederation, is the pride of the North American Prefecture. Learned and disciplined, Greta is proud of her role in keeping the global peace — even though, with her country controlling two-thirds of the world’s most war-worthy resource — water — she has little chance of reaching adulthood alive.

    Enter Elián Palnik, the Prefecture’s newest hostage and biggest problem. Greta’s world begins to tilt the moment she sees Elián dragged into the school in chains. The Prefecture’s insidious surveillance, its small punishments and rewards, can make no dent in Elián, who is not interested in dignity and tradition, and doesn’t even accept the right of the UN to keep hostages.

    What will happen to Elián and Greta as their two nations inch closer to war?

    Woah, this book sounds so crazy! I mean, keeping the peace by having hostages...that is a scary world. Then if there's a war, you kill them... What really hooked though, was the part where it says they dragged Elián to school in chains O.O On top of that he sounds like the more sane one in that place because who would actually agrees to this crazy system of peace. Any who, I am still crazy to read it and will be looking forward to it in September!

    THAT'S IT! HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE SCORPION RULES? LIKE THE COVER? EXCITED FOR IT TO COME OUT? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS!
    LEAVE ME YOUR WAITING ON WEDNESDAY'S POSTS IN THE COMMENT'S BELOW!

    MAIL YA : A new YA monthly subscription... [US & INTERNATIONALLY OPEN]

    ***POST HAS BEEN UPDATED AND CHANGED***

    Hey everyone, so I have been thinking and thinking. Finally I decided what to do with all of my precious thinking. I decided to do my very own ya bookish subscription box, with a twist. I know that whenever I get mail, especially bookish mail, I get super HAPPY! I have no idea why but getting books or even book swag give me this happy high. Which is why I love to give books and swag away. I love spreading the bookish love to anyone I can.

    What I'm basically offering is a monthly subscription to get Young Adult Bookish mail! For those who live in the UNITED STATES, the cost for this subscription is $30.00! Which includes the cost of the shipping for the book and everything that comes with it. So no extra fees :D The book will be shipped out the last week of the previous month so you get it at the beginning of the month you pay for.

    I'm also opening up the subscription for INTERNATIONAL followers/readers. For international subscribers the cost is $45.00! Which included the cost of everything even the shipping!!! As long as USPS ships to your country then I can send it! Also the international subscription is a bit different because you get it ONCE A MONTH, mostly for the shipping cost. BUT you still get EVERYTHING from that month! So all the weekly mail is just piled into one big package! It will be shipped at the end of the previous week, so it won't take to long.

    Hopefully you read EVERYTHING up to this point or else you will be kinda lost. Here is some important information you should know and keep in mind when you subscribe. Read everything below carefully!

    - MUST SIGN UP EACH MONTH BY THE SPECIFIED TIME!

    - SIGNING UP AFTER CUT OFF DATE, WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT MONTH, TO SIGN UP

    - US BOOK SHIPS SHOULD ARRIVE ON THE FIRST WEEK OF THE MONTH YOU SUBSCRIBED FOR

    - US SHIPPING TAKES AROUND 3-5 DAYS (depending on where you live)

    - INTERNATIONAL PACKAGE SHOULD ARRIVE BETWEEN THE FIRST OR SECOND WEEK OF THE SIGNED UP MONTH

    - INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING TAKES AROUND 6-10 DAYS (depending on where you live)

    - THE BOOKS ARE ALL YOUNG ADULT AND A SURPRISE XD

    - EACH PACKAGE CONTAINS 2-3 BOOKISH THINGS (EX. STICKERS, MINI PILLOWS, NOTEBOOKS, BOOKMARKS, AND MORE)

    This is the for the month of JULY! SING UPS CLOSE FOR US & INTERNATIONAL SUBSCRIBERS ON SUNDAY JUNE 22, 2015 at 12 MIDNIGHT!

    THAT'S IT! ARE YOU EXCITED? SHARE THE LOVE. ANY QUESTIONS? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS! LOVE YOU ALL!
