How it all started...

 A little bit... or maybe a lot about me.

I'm sure many of you have had "the question" asked at least once by some one whether it's a friend, family member or some random person. I've been asked so many times I've learned it's better to just simply say the fastest answer rather than actually trying to explain. So now you might be wondering what question is that exactly?  It's the simple "why do you like to read?" Ever since my love of reading started I've been constantly asked and at first I would try to explain but people just couldn't seem to understand. It come to a point where I would just simply answer with a " just because it's fun" to stop the questions. yes, it's fun to read but really that's not the only reason I love reading. In order to fully understand where it all began I would have to take you all back to my childhood specifically age 9 or 10 or maybe even further.

I was born October 9, 1992 to my father Hipolito and my mom Margarita their second child together and their last. My mother and father met at their work place they were both divorced and I guess love grew between them, they married and had my brother 5 years later I was born. I was the accident they loved or at least that what my mom once told me lol.  I was my father's princess for exactly 2 years we didn't get more than that. My father passed away 3 days after my second birthday from health complications I never got the chance to know him.

I never felt anything was missing in my life that is until about 5th grade when I saw my friends with their dads that was the first time I felt the absence of my father deeply. I remember thinking how lucky they were to have their dads with them. I remember going to the store and seeing those "daddy's little girl" t-shirt's and thinking I could never wear one of those. It was during those times I was also going through some body issues.  I wasn't aware of it at that time but I was going through some-what of a depression. I don't know if my family ever noticed it I've learned to be very good at hiding my emotions I was always the quiet child at school and during this time I just retreated into my shell even more. It was only at home with my family that I would laugh, scream, be crazy but when ever I cried I always hid on the bathroom I didn't want them to see.

I was a girl who hid her feelings, who would fake a smile when she wanted to cry the most. Even when I gave in to the tears it would be in the bathroom and I would pinch myself to stop the tears to feel pain instead of sadness.  I had a diary where I would some times write about boys I liked (even then I was a flirt lol) but there were also very dark letters to myself where I wrote suicide notes. During 6th grade my  depression became worse I became suicidal. I remember once where I just felt it was better to die to simply stop feeling I remember going to the kitchen and grabbing a knife and thinking about cutting my writs. I never when through with it though because I would think of my mom who loves me so much and I felt I couldn't cause her so much pain. I thinking going so  far as to actually grab a knife shocked me enought that I never tried it again.

 Me and my nieces whom I love very much Yesi, Elizabeth, Me, Lucia. camera caught me unprepared lol

7th and 8th grade of my life were quiet nothing happened I was neither happy nor sad it just simply the time were I had begun to see how destructive I was against myslef it was the year I felt I had to change for my own good. During this time I began to come out of my shell little by little. My freshman year of high school I met a girl named Erin in cooking class the firs time I saw her she was reading. The book was called MARS by Fuyumi Soryo it was a manga.
MARS at Goodreads
This book and Erin changed my life in ways I don't think she ever really knew. It was this book that started my love of reading, it was this book that saved me. When I saw her I remember thinking how happy she looked reading how free she looked. It took some courage on my part to ask what she was reading she looked at me and handed me her book. I read a page and was hooked I guess she could tell because she said she would let me borrow it as soon as she finished it.  I read it and I loved it I kept thinking how wonderful the story had been how I wanted to keep reading more of it and told her the next day I saw her. I asked where I could find more and she answered our library had some but if I really wanted to find a big selection our local library had many. That was all it took that same week I took my first trip to the school library. At school I would often stop by and pick up other manga and when I finished the ones there I took my first trip to the local library. The first book I took out of the library was another manga with the same basic story plot at MARS it was called Kare First Love by Kaho Miyasaka
Kare First Love @ Goodreads
After reading MARS I continued reading more and more manga but I'm too much of a fast reader to be completely satisfied with only that so I decided it was time to try a YA book. The manga section and YA books were side by side so it wasn't hard to find them (they have now been moved across but still are pretty close) the first YA book I checked out with my brother's library card was Crank  by Ellen Hopkins.
Crank @ Goodreads
If you've read any Ellen Hopkins books you probably know how powerful they are. It was this book that made me realize I don't have to be perfect I have to be just me, imperfect in all my glory. I was very susceptible to peer pressure and this book made me realize drugs aren't some thing to mess with it made me realize drugs aren't the way to escape. Instead of doing what friends were doing I read, reading became my way of escaping. I would immerse myself into what ever book I had and just lose myself in it. So to answer the question "why do I read?" because reading gives me the freedom to escape, to express what ever emotion I'm feeling, to cry, laugh, scream, get angry. I can just lose myself in an unknown world I almost feel like it's me in the story not the characters or at least I feel like I'm alongside them. When I fished a book I feel so happy like I've accomplished something it makes me feel alive. 

Basically I love reading because I feel it saved me in many ways saved my life, my mind, just simply saved me from me. I haven't felt sad or suicidal in so many years I feel very alive and I'm so thankful for having a family that loves me as much as mine does. I feel thankful for the friends that I've made those that brightened my days when I felt especially sad and most of all I feel thankful to all those authors who wrote the stories that saved me. I don't know if they will ever know just how thankful I really am but at the end of the day the best way to show my thanks is to live with no regrets, to laugh as much as possible, to love with all my heart just to Live.  As I write this I feel very happy to have been able to share this with you all and even though it's a very personal story I don't regret sharing it. Now let me be the one to ask you, "what made you read or what made you love reading?" thanks for reading hw it all started have a nice weekend every one

Library Unveiled #2

Don't know what is in your library?
Want to share your books with others?
Curious to know what is in other libraries?
Library Unveiled is a new Meme created by the Mad Scientist over at Steampunkery & book reviews. It's way to share your personal library, bound or virtual, with the Mad Scientist and other bloggers.

Every Thursday stop by and share 5 books & perhaps a snippet of your thoughts or link to a review for more info just head on over to The Mad Scientist blog page I promise it won't hurt...much.

Yay second Library Unveiled. This week I reached to the far back of my bookshelf to bring out some of my first books (not the first one I read just the first I bought lol) and a few others. This week on my Library unveiled I have:      Stories of Love                    
                                                   My Small Reads

Skip Beat! @ GR

I'm actually a BIG fan of Manga.  I Became a manga fanatic before my  love of reading even began it's actually a really long story that I wish to tell all my friends so I'm sure I'll be writing a blog post about it either today or tomorrow. Before that thought Skip Beat by Yoshiki Nakamura, its a series as most manga is. It's also still ongoing which makes me happy because I love it and don't want it to end yet.  This pic is of the fist book but I have book 14, 15, and 16 I haven't been able to buy the others but I check them out of the library often.  I love the story in this one ts very awesome and if you are thinking of giving manga a chance you should definitely check out this one or Kimi ni Todoke you wont be dissapointed.

Winter's child @ GR

I Love Cameron Dokey's Retelling stories they are always so lovely. I bought Winter's Child a while back but I've read all of them except maybe 2 or three I have yet to buy. Winters Child doesn't disappoint and as always I love the cover its very lovely as are the other covers they are fast read because the normally don't have more than 200 pages so makes the small reads list.  If you haven't yet pick up a Cameron Dokey retelling story maybe you'll love the new version of happily ever after.

Kitchen Princess @ GR

Kitchen Princess by Natsumi Ando and Miyuki Kobayashi  is another manga story I personally own. this is a different story than Skip Beat! but still a great book. I love the format of the book like Skip Beat! its actually the Japanese format meaning you read the story from the back to the front the story is very innocent and full of love an awesome small read.  As a plus since its about food (Kitchen hello name? lol) they usually have the food recipe to what ever is talked about in the manga and its a finished story ended 2009 so no waiting =p

                              Not So small Reads
Winner Takes All @ GR

With 537 pages Winner Takes all by Nora Roberts is not a small read but then again its a 2-1 book. In this book there are two stories one of  Brooke and Parks and the other featuring Johanna and Sam. I loved both I sometimes find myslef only liking one if its a 2-1 and wishing the whole story was about them but in this case I loved both equally and I was pretty happy how things ended. My first Nora Roberts book definitely not my last.

Prisoner of my Desire @GR

Another Johanna Lindsey book from my shelf (wait did I already put one up? if not I will!) I love the cover on this one it seems kind of simple but its actually double cover (You know I lve those!)  and the inside cover is pretty sexy if I do say so myself. The book is full of passion and romance not a fast read since it has 425 pages but it's well wort it.  This was my first Johanna Lindsey book and hasn't been my last I assure you its just been one of my favorite from her.

So those are my small reads and longer reads both old series I follow and older books I've read and enjoyed. All of them are Love based stories. I hope you will check out these books and maybe give them a try I really loved them maybe you will too . Thanks for reading this week's Library Unveiled hosted by Mad Scientist over at   Steampunkery & book reviews

Where I talk Zombies into vegetarianism or at least I try to

         You were forewarned this topic has been Zombiefied!!! lol 

So you might be wondering what's up with the whole Zombies theme right? well I wanted to talk a little bit about them (zombies), me (normal human .. I think), and books/ movies who have zombies in them. These days when ever I go into a bookstore I find at least one zombie book or movie and well if  I had a t-shirt in my closet that said I Zombies

 or at least an I Zombies pin maybe that would make me really happy but in reality zombies FREAK me out!  So here is the logical questions that would follow me making this statement probably made by some one who has noticed this week I read two zombie books.
"why if Zombies freak you out are you reading zombie books?"

Excellent question random person I don't know, the answer to that is some what simple, but before I can answer that I need to explain why they freak me out. I mean I've read/watched things with vampires, werewolves, ogres, ghost's, mummy's and other creepy stuff so do zombies freak me out so much? I blame movies for the most part, and also my brother-in-law. You see when I was about 12 I use to always go to the family store it was inside a huge mall and our store was right across from that of my brother-in-law's. So I would always either be with my mom or I would be at his store, I could see movies in his store and I would often get bored if I didn't. That fateful day I had been watching a family movie, I had drunk a lot of soda and I left to got to the bathroom. By the time I had came back he had already changed the movie to Dawn of the Dead of course I didn't know that at the time. Yeah I"m talking about that movie from 2004 where a plague hits and normal people are turned into flesh eating zombies. So there I am normal as could be when out of nowhere a little girl attacks a guy and rips his throat out. Yeah I was freaked out Big time but before I could go running to my mom my friend asked me if I was scared. Being the scared-y cat I am I would have probably said yes but I was also some what embarrassed to accept it so I said no and stayed to watch it. Suffice to say I didn't sleep well that night or the next. Now that I think about it I'm pretty sure I slept on my mothers room lol.
gives me the Heebie Jibbies just posting this pic *shudders 
So basically that's the reason I have been terrified of them since I was younger.  My belief had always been that I couldn't watch or read any zombie book or movies but I guess I proved myself wrong. You see this year I gave them  a chance my fist ever zombie book was actually Never Slow Dance With a Zombie by E. Van Lowe it was a book I was conflicted about at least when I picked it up. It's a funny book but at the same time these zombie's are flesh eaters so part of me felt it was unwise to take it, the other felt I couldn't judge the book on my previous experiences.

I loved the book (so much I might even make a review for it but that would have to be until I finish the reviews I already have panned) I read through it and found myslef wanting more zombies and so I came across The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. I've read so many blogs post about how much they loved the book and all I could think of was how I hadn't. Maybe it was because her zombies were freaky and part of me rejected them, could be I just didn't like the main character all that much by the end of the book, or how many people died that I wish had lived I'm not sure. By the end of this book I had once again put my walls up to zombies they didn't deserve to be trusted even in book form.

I didn't read any zombie books for a while after The Forest of Hands and Teeth instead I developed a new theory that I couldn't read any zombie books where the zombies were flesh eaters. Which sounds silly really,  if they didn't they wouldn't really be zombies would they? I was pretty sure I had hit the nail on the head with that theory anyway until I proved myslef wrong again.  I read Generation Dead  by Daniel Waters and Happy Hour of the Damned by Mark Henry. The zombies of Generation Dead eat... well it's never really explained I just know the don't really eat human food. Although a character in there does try to eat fruit (shes the basis for this blog post title) she was some what of a vegetarian I guess lol. I read both Generation Dead and Happy Hour of the Damned (actually I'm about to finish reading Happy Hour of the Damned) and I loved them both. Yes both of them have zombies as main characters and at least Amanda Feral, the main character in Happy Hour of the Damned, is human flesh eater. 

After reading both books and loving them despite them having zombies that ate flesh (at least Amanda did) I had to really think about it was I really just prejudiced against zombies was it that they were human-flesh eaters? that couldn't be it other wise I would have really hated Amanda so what was the real reason? I have now the answer... or at least a new theory lol. I believe the real reason is that the  zombies that freak me out are the mindless killing machines those that attack just because they don't know what else to do those that will attack anything that moves and has a pulse. Yeah those are freaky those I would probably run away from screaming a girl. for now that theory has held up if it ever changes I think I'll update this blog post.

If  you stuck around for all that give your self a pat on the back lol and thanks for reading my rambling on zombies and such. That's basically my philosophy on zombies if you have any thoughts on my post or if you are a zombie and would like to tell me please leave a comment below. Oh before I leave just wanted to leave you all with smile on your face and with zombies on your minds just in-case they weren't in there already with this pic:
Because I thought this pic was beyond cuteness lol

have a fun weekend evey one happy reading.

Review: Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

Generation Dead @Goodreads
Generation Dead
By: Daniel Waters
Published: May 6, 2008
Publisher: Hyperion

"Phoebe Kendall is just your typical Goth girl with a crush. He’s strong and silent…and dead.
All over the country, a strange phenomenon is occurring. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. But when they come back to life, they are no longer the same. Feared and misunderstood, they are doing their best to blend into a society that doesn’t want them.
The administration at Oakvale High attempts to be more welcoming of the “differently biotic." But the students don’t want to take classes or eat in the cafeteria next to someone who isn’t breathing. And there are no laws that exist to protect the “living impaired” from the people who want them to disappear—for good.
When Phoebe falls for Tommy Williams, the leader of the dead kids, no one can believe it; not her best friend, Margi, and especially not her neighbor, Adam, the star of the football team. Adam has feelings for Phoebe that run much deeper than just friendship; he would do anything for her. But what if protecting Tommy is the one thing that would make her happy?"
Synopsis from Goodreads

I won Generation Dead by Daniel Waters on the Fool for books giveaway hosted by I Am A Reader Not A Writer and to The Bookish Snob. The giveaway I won was the one hosted by Memrie over at  @ Darkangel88 I got the book last week and I've now finished reading it so I decided to do a review on it to write my thoughts on it.

I have to first talk about the book cover which I loved but I wasn't sure who the girl in the cover is since Phoebe is supposed to have really black hair.  I suppose it could be some other girl but since the story is about Phoebe falling for a zombie it seems it would be her no?  of course being the curious person that I am I had to go looking for other book covers and found these two.

the first one is English language but the next one is the Turkish version. 
Looking at the Turkish version makes me believe it is supposed to be Phoebe. Looking at both covers I like the one I got because it really is pretty and the Turkish version because it seems more true to the story. The other cover seems too plain for my taste not to mention how it really has nothing to do with the story unless I skipped the part about black roses lol or it could just be for the goth thing not sure =p

The story was easy to get into at least for me because even if I normally don't read about zombies, they freak me out I will probably write a post explaining all about it, these weren't of the flesh eating kind. I really liked Phoebe at the beginning of the story but, by the end I was confused by her actions or lack thereof. She seemed so cool doing some thing out of the norm I liked that she wasn't your usual perfect cheerleader, again why the cover in my version doesn't completely work for me, shes a goth.  She wasn't that slacker goth that is some times portrayed she was smart and nice and she had a thing for a zombie boy named Tommy Williams.  She seemed like the type of character I normally really like but I'm not sure what my feeling towards her were like by the end of book one. I think in order to fully rate her on my character list I need to read Generation dead book 2 Kiss of Life.

Tommy Williams and Adam Layman were the guys vying for Phoebes attention. Tommy seemed very like-able I believe it's the first time a zombie seemed like a good catch, for a boyfriend I mean lol. Adam just took my heart thought he defended Phoebe and Tommy even when inside he was hurting. I fell a little bit for both of them but I had an issue with both of them that never quite got resolved so I couldn't completely call them swoon worthy. The next book is dealing with them still so maybe their issues will be resolved in which case I will have to came back and rate them on my characters list.

There were many other characters in Generation dead both dead and alive I liked and also disliked. Out of all of them I really liked Thornton Harrowwood because he was just a funny dude. He talked to the zombies like they were normal and out of all the others he was the only one who became friends with them simply because he could not for another reason. I liked how he talked with out thinking and did stuff that could be dangerous but even when he got hurt he still smiled and was proud. My favorite line with him in it is as follows:

"Thornton Harrowwood was allowed to carry the ball on a play and was chrushed after a three-yard gain.
"Ow," Margi sai. "I hope he gets up."
He did, and strutted as though he'd just carried the ball seventy yards for a touchdown
"You have to admire his pluck," Phoebe said
"Yes. He is as plucky young man." pg 138

I really love those lines in my head I kept picturing it and laughing about it lol so he was one of my favorite characters in all of Generation Dead. The character I really hated was Pete Martinsburg he was just evil! I must confess though there was a small part of me who felt bad for him but for the most part I wanted him to be killed or at least be turned into zombie,I would have loved the irony in that, does that make me a bad person?  He is often described as tanned, strong, with well defined abs you know the hunky kind, but in my head I always pictured him as Mary Lightly from Psych the tv show. No the person isn't a girl its a guy named Mary hes kind of weird at least on the tv show his real name is Jimmi Simpson and incase you still have no idea who he is heres a pic:

Yup he's Mary nothing like that tanned hunky description right?

Just for the heck of it a pic of Psych because I ♥ that show

 As every one can see he looks nothing like the description of Pete, not hunky at least not in my opinion. For some reason though , I think its because of Pete's thoughts, I could only picture Mary in his place never the tanned hunky football player. 

The whole book would have gotten a rating of 5/5 but wont if only because there were some things that weren't explained by the end of the book and they left me dissatisfied. I know this is a series and that is probably why they weren't. They most likely will be talked about in the next book but for me that isn't enough to change my mind. Will I be reading the next book in the series definitely  I want to know what happens next. Generation Dead deserves a: Major Crush Alert! rating or 4/5.

For now that is it on Generation Dead by Daniel Waters. Since I'm still on zombie mode, currently  reading Happy Hour of the Damned by mark Henry, keep a look out for my review of that one.

Blog update

Reading Under the Moonlight Blog Update 

Hi every one thanks for taking the time to read this. I will be posting any news I have on blog updates like this one so keep your eyes out maybe next time I post one it will be about a giveaway.

Today's update has to do with my posting:

So I got a new job which is awesome for my money issues but not so much for the blog. My work hours are killer I'm working from 6A.M to 6P.M Monday-Wednesday and every other Sunday. By the time I get home on those days I'm so tired it's really hard to blog or read. If I log into my computer I can barely have enough energy to read my mail and so until I get used to this schedule I will only be posting on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays I will try to pre-write other post so that on the other days I can have blog posts.  My reading has taken a hit as well I'm trying to get some reading in my lunch time at work but mostly its has to be done on those days I don't work. On other news I have many reviews planned already and I will be posting those starting tomorrow 

thanks for following my blog I love reading all your comments they always make me really happy.
