I Am Carina And I Speak For The Books!

I am Carina, and I speak for the books! I read books because I love to and I write reviews because I need to place my thoughts in "paper". My reviews are honest. Usually not mean, but I can't make promises. Even when I don't like a book, I try to be as nice as possible. And when I love a book, I'm not going to lie, there might be some Fan Girling and Gushing.

This Same Earth (Volume 2)
Elizabeth Hunter
How to Kill a Rock Star - Tiffanie DeBartolo "He was smiling again, He had, I decided, a cocky-bastard smile."How do you know a book was good? You liked it, you were entertained.How do you know a book was very good? You couldn't put it down, you looked forward to reading when you did, and it stayed in your mind.How do you know a book was awesome? It gave you butterflies, kept you hooked and made you lose sleep over it.How do you know a book was the-shit-out-of-this-world-crazy-good? (slowly) When said book, makes you dizzy with happiness, gives you a beautiful, realistic story, lyrical writing and quotes that fill your reading device unlike any other book before, it manages to fill you with joy, raise you up to the clouds....and then drops you like a mother fucking flightless bird. It rips your heart out, leaves the wound open and keeps poking at it, just incase it was healing. Rubs the happiness you once had, in your face and then taunts you with it. It teases you with hope, and just when you thought it FINALLY decided to release you from the pain, it opens up the unhealed wound and makes a hole in your soul, so that it slowly, painfully, leaks out. Leaving you with a screaming pain that cover your entire chest. You can't eat, you can't breath, all you can do is read. Read on and hope, yes still hope, that things get better. And when they do, you don't believe it. It must be another trick! And yet relief comes. The pain of the past doesn't matter as much as you thought. The anger seems much smaller and the book, the god damned book, becomes a gem amongst a beach of sand.You still love this book that made you so angry and put you through hell. THAT, is how you know it was that fucking good.Ten goddamned seconds. The difference between the real stuff and the crap.Never before, have I encountered a character as perfect and flawed at the same time as Paul Hudson. Some one that seems so full of bull shit and yet is the most honest person there.He loves what he loves and he is not willing to compromise for it. He thought he could, but he can't.He is so passionate about his music, his beliefs and about Eliza. Above all, about Eliza. And he has the most lyrical, amazing quotes I have ever encountered in a book. EVER.Eliza is even more flawed than Paul, because you see, the road to hell is filled with good intentions. And Eliza found out the hard way.She tried to do the right thing, but she couldn't have been more wrong. She made me hate her, despise her, with a passion that I had not felt in the longest time, maybe ever before, towards a character. And yet, I understand she was trying to do the right thing. And if Paul can forgive her, I guess I can too.Believe me, I could probably spent the next couple hours quoting so much of this book, because I highlighted PAGES of it. But it would be unfair to those who have not yet read this gem. And if you haven't, what are you waiting for?It took me 2 years to cave in and read this, and I regret every day I let pass. It was a beautiful, magnificent read when it was good. And it was a horrible, painful one when it got bad. But I wouldn't have loved it as much, if it had been any other way.If for nothing else, read this because you have to meet the awesomeness that is Paul-goddamned-Hudson.Happy readings!4 to 4.5 starsCarina ApprovedCarina LovedCarina RecommendsCarina EndorsedCarina says MUST READ
