The Reinvention of a Blogger

Hello,


It's been a while. I bet you don't even remember this blog at all! My name is Edmiary and I am from Puerto Rico, a small island in the Caribbean.

It's awesome to meet you if you're new and great to reconnect if you're an old reader. So, let me tell you a bit about what's been going on, like a little catch-up.
I still love reading books, but in the time you haven't heard from me I've also picked up new fascinations and things to goo-goo gaga over, like shoes and lipsticks and things that glitter. So instead of this just being a book blog, I'm going to be expanding it to post about all sorts of things. This also means the whole blog in under construction since the whole theme will be changing. So please be aware many links and redirects may be inaccurate for the time being.

In the time I've been gone I've also had job switches once or twice.Worked in retail at the beginning of last year for about a month or two. I was so sad when I got downsized, it broke my heart because I very unexpectedly adored my job as a sales person. Funnily enough, I used to run the opposite way of retail. I'd apply to anything except retail and now I love my job and I love shoes and fashion and makeup and it's so crazy because in high school I was always that girl that didn't even wear lip-gloss and walked around with messy hair and a coffee stain on my white polo shirt not giving a flying fuck. And to be quite honest, that's still me from time to time, but mostly I'm a changed woman. I actually enjoy putting on makeup and twirling in dresses and wearing red lipstick and oh gosh I finally understand because you just feel so cool and happy and beautiful and even, dare I say, artistic! I also look... a bit different. Gone are all my wild brown curls and in is my short bob cut... thing. Also, it's white.

HEY.

All These Awkward Smiles


I also did some office temp jobs for a while, took some time from school, and now I'm working in another Credit Union. I can't complain, it's a pretty cool job, my co-worker and boss are nice, and it's a pretty solid full-time gig.

Last year was good. So great! I complain a lot, but the reality is that if I don't dwell on the upsetting parts, it was a very good year; solid, full of growth. I also turned 21 finally, which feels the same, really. I had a little freak-out when I turned 20, but I think it was mostly a shock because I would no longer be a teenager, officially. So, I was sort of expecting it to be a little sad, perhaps that bittersweet feeling of loss and the scary unknown, the amounting responsibilities and sense of confusion when perhaps you should have it figured out. But it's so uneventful. I'm already 22!

On to more blog related topics, I still do read, yes, in case you are wondering, I just haven't been reviewing. But I do admit I haven't been as fully immersed into the book world as I used to be. I've been exploring beauty and fashion and music a lot.
I'll be active on the blog again (hopefully, lol) so I really hope you enjoy my posts and if you ever have any questions or any suggestions or like book recommendations or wanna gush with me about anything then just feel free to do it! I love talking in general, so don't be shy about reaching out.


Thank you for reading and stuff and I love you and I hope you have a great night (or day)!

Follow Me Through Darkness by Danielle Ellison — Blog Tour!


Release Date: October 21, 2014
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Series: The Boundless Trilogy #1
Add to Goodreads: Follow Me Through Darkness

Synopsis: The truth won't always set you free.
Less than a year ago, Neely Ambrose’s biggest worry was having the freedom to follow a path that wasn't chosen for her.
Less than a year ago, she believed she could trust the Elders who said they had everyone’s best interest at heart and who said they were keeping them safe from the outside.
Sixty days ago, she discovered what they had planned for everyone she loved—and that all of it centered around her.
Now she’s on the run through a dangerous wasteland full of killing machines, secret organizations, and people who want to sell her back to the Elders for their own safety. The whole world outside the Compound is living proof that everything in Neely’s life was a lie manufactured by the Elders, which may even include the boy she loves.
All Neely wants is the truth, but each new piece of it drives her further from what she thought she knew. With only forty days until everyone she loves falls under the Elders’ mind control, Neely must decipher who to trust, what questions to ask, and how to get one step ahead of the Elders, who will do anything to keep their secrets buried.

Character Interview: Xenith

1. You are most happy when you are:

Left alone

2. What is your favorite time of day (morning/afternoon/night)?

Night, people are asleep, pretenses are down, and the whole world is alive.

3. If you could be famous for only one thing, what would it be?

My sheer brilliance, my charm, or my dashing good looks. I’ll let you pick.

4. You've just woken up alone, in the dark, and you're not sure where you are. Explain yourself.

This whole question is pointless. If I’m waking up in the dark then I was probably asleep, hence the waking up—and the dark means nighttime, which is when you sleep. And I am often sleeping alone, since the one person I want will never wake up beside me…

Anyway, I rarely know where I am since I’m all over the place, so this would be nothing new. The only time I know where I am is when I’m in my quarters because the smell of cinnamon will never leave my home because of my mother’s baking, but that is rare. I often have to determine my location based on what’s going on, the noises around me and the people who are familiar. So I would quickly figure out where I was.

Even if I didn’t know those things I’d be okay, since I spend most of my time in the darkness, alone, with no knowledge of where I am.

It’d be better to ask a different question next time. Make it provide something of value, a piece of information that you can use later. All of this was pointless.

5. Choose one color of the rainbow as your favorite and tell us why you chose it.

I don't have to tell you anything, but out of kindness and in respect to the curiosity that I’m sure will consume you, I will throw you a bone.
Green.
Green is vibrant, powerful, and it keeps me focused.


About the Author:


Danielle Ellison spent of her childhood reading instead of learning math. It's probably the reason she can't divide without a calculator and has spent her life seeking the next adventure. It's also probably the reason she's had so many different zip codes and jobs.

When she’s not writing, Danielle is usually drinking coffee, fighting her nomadic urges, watching too much TV, or dreaming of the day when she can be British. Danielle is also the author of SALT and STORM, a series about a snarky witch without magic. She has settled in Northern Virginia, for now, but you can always find her on twitter.

My Thoughts: I love everything about this cover! From the expression on the girls face to the beautiful steam-punk outfit to the bird skeleton sitting beside the cage and how her hands are tied with chains. It's sexy, it's intriguing, the whole gray-scale and smoke thing gives it a mysterious edge. What do you guys think of the cover?

Synopsis: Being happy. It sounds so simple. Yet, it seems that it’s always just out of reach for Shannon Ryan.

After serving overseas for six years as a female United States Marine, Ryan is finally getting out the military. But coming home to live with her biker brother and his motorcycle club is more difficult than she thought it would be. Much has changed in the years that she has been gone, including Ellis, her brother’s best friend and childhood crush.

Ellis 'Dirty' Crane is the second in command for Tormented Souls Motorcycle Club. The only thing he lives for is the club, that is until Ryan comes home, no longer the wild little girl that followed him around. The two things standing in his way of getting what he wants are Patrick, Ryan's brother and leader of the club, and Jeremiah, Ryan’s boyfriend.

Can Ellis break through Ryan’s walls? Burn them and Jeremiah down? Prove to her brother that he’s the right man for her? Or is Ryan hiding more than she’s letting on?
