Friday Five

1. First off, so excited that this week's issue of EW has this as the cover:



Yes, I'm proud to say I'm a 'marshmallow'. I also was one of the kickstart backers! Can't wait to see movie next month!

2. Finished reading:



This book brought back memories of 1983. Loved it!

Teaser: What worked was the amazing voice of this historical YA novel. It brought back memories. During the early 80s, no one thought the wall would ever come down. We only heard stories of those who were lucky to escape. Ada and Stefan's story is beautifully written. Kephart shows us the heart and that not even a wall could separate a love.

3. Read this:

Teaser: What worked had to be how Ember puts together the pieces of her life before the accident even if it might be too painful to face. Her struggles/conflicts resonate and the reader can't help but want to know what really happened on the night that took away so much from her.

I also liked the chemistry between Ember and Kai. It's sudden and very intense. You want to follow him and discover what he might know but on the same hand can't help but wonder if the key he holds might shatter Ember.


4. Starting this one for next week's blog book tour:



Love Janet Gurtler's writing!

5. Found another yummy loose tea place at Irvine Spectrum:



The Mango green tea is very nommy. I also love the mocha nut mate.

**Guilty pleasure:

Finally, I'm going to see The Vampire Academy! Loved all the books. Read the first one and had to read the rest. Devoured this whole series in under 2 weeks! Yes, it's that good!
