Isis can control her dreams. Or she could-until recently. The creature in her nightmares has been haunting her for months. As if being dumped wasn’t bad enough, now she dreads going to sleep. She decides to confront the creature and win back some of her peace; only, she finds that he’s not a monster and he’s not a dream.


A sacrifice for love, a shocking discovery and a jealous ex-boyfriend blur the lines between reality and dreams, making it hard to tell who the real monsters are.

Who would’ve known…that sometimes love is lethal?

interview mov


1. Tell us 5 words to describe Creatura.

Love Story, Thrilling, Surprising, Different, Intoxicating

2. Which was the main reason you started writing it?

I started writing out of boredom and took it up as hobby. I had enjoyed writing when I was younger and decided that this was something that only required my imagination and my computer.

3.How do you see your future as a writer?

I try to stay positive about new doors being opened for me as a writer even though there is a lot of competition in the literary world. But for now, I will to continue writing for you and the rest of the YA reader out there and hope for the best in my future.

4. Do you find yourself reflected in any of the characters? In which one and in what way?

I find myself relating mostly to Nyx and Claire because they are both mothers and like to cook. They take care of their families and are ready to defend their children like a lioness.

5.  Tell us one favourite book you've read or you want to read (except yours , of course, hihi!)

I really want to read a lot of books, but one that has caught my eye recently is “Obsidian” by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

6. My interview ends here so I invite you to say something for my readers and your fans (or future fans).

I’d like you all to know that your support and your interest in “Creatura” overwhelm me. I never expected such a warm reception when I first published my book, especially not from people outside the U.S. I thought for a long time that no one would take interest in my novel. But now, to know that it will soon be in a country as beautiful as Romania and read by its people that are equally or more beautiful, gives me inspiration to write. Thank you for being a part of my world and a huge part of motivation.

Hello! Da, inca mai traiesc desi nu am mai fost activa. Am lene acuta momentan si nu m-am mai ocupat de nici un blog. Trebuie sa-mi vina cheful. M-am inscris la mai multe book blitz-uri si altele, dar nu am mai postat de lene. Incerc sa-mi revin cat mai repede. Am atatea carti carora sa le fac recenzie. Off, daca exista o cura pentru boala asta va rog sa-mi ziceti. Sunt un pacient intr-o stare mai grava. :))

Incerc sa revin si data viitoare cu o recenzie sper. :d Have a nice summer!

Friday 56    The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Add it in the linky.




The end of the spell was indecipherable, and who knew if a simple mispronunciation was all that stood between a working potion and - Mom.

blogger, follow friday
Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison can Read.


This week's topic is:
Book Vacay: Where is the best destination reading spot for you? (Where do you like to go to read other then your home)

Well, I like to read in peaceful places where I'm surrounded by nature. I really love going in the mountains hearing the bird songs and enjoying a nice cup of coffee or tea in the morning. That's the perfect time for me to read. I also enjoy the rain and the cold weather even if I hate winter. Going in the mountains in summer is simply the best because where I live is so hot in summers and I don't like it.

I prefer to be followed by email, bloglovin or feedly, but chose what suits you the best.
You can find the links in the sidebar.
Also let me know if you followed me to follow you back.

maybe banner22Provocare initiata de Blogul Carti Alese in parteneriat cu Blogul Amina Black.
Provocarea isi propune sa incurajeze oamenii spre lectura, promovand editurile si cartile publicate de editurile romanesti.

Azi am intrat in biblioteca bunicii si am gasit foarte multe carti vechi care acum au fost reeditate. Prin rubrica vreau sa fac o paralela intre editiile care le detin eu si cele actuale.
Eu detin editia din 1984. Sincer imi place mai mult a mea fata de cea actuala. :D

Titlu: Anonima de miercuri

Anul publicarii: 1984(prima editie)
Nr. pagini: 352
Editura: Nemira

Dupa ce a fost amnistiata, Melania Lupu si-a reluat existenta obisnuita, garsoniera din strada Toamnei si tabieturile. Iar în ziua când l-a recuperat pe Mirciulica, gazduit provizoriu la niste prieteni, batrâna a avut sentimentul ca viata e într-adevar frumoasa.

Acum se simte tânara, gata sa înfrunte viitorul, nu încearca complexul detinutului proaspat eliberat, considerând cu seninatate anul petrecut în "pensiunea aceea dragalasa" interesant si instructiv.

WoW splash


(Graphic made by me.)
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


It's been a long time since I made a WoW with the all blog break and movement to Wordpress. It feels good to have it again here.



    I can't wait for:

Ben could date anyone he wants, but he only has eyes for the new girl — sarcastic free-spirit, Ani. Luckily for Ben, Ani wants him too. She’s everything Ben could ever imagine. Everything he could ever want.


But that all changes after the party. The one Ben misses. The one Ani goes to alone.

Now Ani isn’t the girl she used to be, and Ben can’t sort out the truth from the lies. What really happened, and who is to blame?

Ben wants to help her, but she refuses to be helped. The more she pushes Ben away, the more he wonders if there’s anything he can do to save the girl he loves.


This is my pick. What are you waiting for?

Feel free to leave me a pick with your WoW post.

Hi!!! Because Google is deleting so many blogs lately I decided to move on Wordpress to be safe.
I changed my name into "Book Splash".
If you can follow me there it would be great. Also let me know if you do so.
I'll post in English and Romanian as usual.
See you there! :D

http://bookssplash.wordpress.com/


Heya! Din cate vedeti, un nou inceput aici, pe Wordpress. Aproape m-am obisnuit cu el si cum sa-l folosesc, desi designul e atat de limitat. >.< Incerc sa scot ce e mai bun. Sper sa mai treceti pe aici si sa ma urmariti. Pe sidebar o sa puteti sa ma urmariti prin mai multe metode decat cele care le aveam pe blogspot. Prin email.Prin RSS. Prin Bloglovin'. Prin Feedly - asta e nou si pentru mine fiind un fel de Bloglovin, dar mult mai aranjat si mai dragut si e usor sa navighezi pe el chiar daca ai tableta sau smartphone.

     Am facut o noua pagina de facebook fiindca mai am un blog cu lucruri interesate, opinii despre viata preluand un nume de la un fost blog care l-am avut, dar l-am sters ---> Hemoragie de Vorbe. Deoarece imi place fotografia am facut un site dedicat pasiunii mele, unde imi expun fotografiile facute de mine ---> Frozen time. Asa am facut pagina Hogof la tastatura (link sidebar). As aprecia mult daca m-ati sustine cu un like. Caut si o admina, macar temporar si poate sa isi promoveze si ea blogul prin intermediul ei. Momentan nu am postat mai nimic fiindca nu are cine sa vada. Daca vad cateva like-uri o sa incep sa postez, fiindca vreau sa fie si cu imagini si alte lucruri, nu doar sa-mi promovez site-urile.

Ma puteti gasi si pe Twitter, desi am cam avut probleme cu el fiindca m-au tot bagat la spam din greseala si pana rezolvam treceau cateva zile de fiecare data...  Mda,cam asta ar fi de clarificat cu ce mai este nou. In rest, sper sa continue bine. O sa incerc sa postez mai des si sa fiu mai activa. Asa sper sa mai vina din urmaritorii care ii aveam. Daca ma aveti in blogroll, va rog sa schimbati linkul cu Books and Coffee cu cel actual. Blogul o sa fie si in romana si in engleza, ca si celalalt.

Acum ca am terminat cu partea administrativa, ca sa zic asa :)), voi ce mai faceti? Cum e in vacanta? Eu citesc de zor cartile care mi le-a dat profa de romana, chiar daca nu sunt prea incantatoare. Am citit un ebook primit de la un autor acum ceva timp si am devorat-o aproape pe toata intr-o zi. Mai am cateva pagini si este absolut geniala. Abia astept sa-i fac recenzia. Ma intreb daca mai stiu sa fac una.

Hugs! O sa incerc sa dau pe la voi azi sau maine ca sa vad ce se mai intampla! O sa dau start-ul unui concurs curand, asa ca stati aproape. :D
       Well, hello! In sfarsit mi-a revenit cheful de blog si sa fac ceva treaba pe aici. In primul rand m-am decis sa ma mut pe Wordpress dupa ce Google a sters foarte multe boguri de la inceputul lui iulie si nu am de gand sa pierd tot ce am facut aici. Te gasesti cu blogul sters fara nici un advertisment si nici nu poti sa preiei posturile care le aveai. NIMIC! Si prin mai multe bloguri sterse ma refer mai mult la cele din categoria Book Blog.
        Nimeni nu se uita pe blogul tau cand intra la spam. Prin spam se refera mai mult la lucrurile pornografice incercand sa combata genul asta de bloguri. De ce e un book blog sters? Pai ai recenzat o carte romantica si cand pui linkul spre goodreads sau amazon si gaseste cine stie ce cuvant care il cred ei de aceasta natura BUFF! S-a dus! Aiurea,nu? Ca altfel nu pot sa-mi explic. Pentru mai multe detalii despre toata aceasta tevatura intrati aici, unde e un articol mai detaliat despre ce mai face Google in ultima vreme si de ce le sterge. Desigur se zvoneste ca e foarte probabil ca GFC-ul sa dispara si sa ne impinge spre Google+ care mie personal nu-mi place.
      A fost greu!!!!! Grea decizie am facut, dar sper ca e mai bine asa pentru blog! Vreau sa ma simt si eu mai in siguranta si sa stiu ca n-am muncit degeaba. Am luat si un alt nume pentru blog. Vroiam ceva de vara care sa tina si iarna. :)) Oricum sper sa mai veniti pe blogul meu pe wordpress fiindca oricum o sa trec pe blogurile voastre mult mai des de acum incolo. GFC-ul parca si-a pierdut valoarea fiindca din tot numarul ala putini isi fac simtita prezenta. Ufff,e asa greu! E un nou inceput.
      Am de gand sa pregatesc un concurs curand asa ca stati pe aproape!
      Si am facut o noua pagina de facebook, deoarece intre timp mi-am mai facut un blog de fotografie si inca un blog cu chestii interesante la care mai de lucru ca sa pun posturi si restul,dar va astept si pe acolo sa tregeti o privire. In legatura cu noua pagina,sincer m-ar ajuta mult o admina,macar temporar si poate si ea sa-si faca reclama la blog prin intermediul paginii mele. Daca e cineva interesat,sa-mi trimita mesaj pe adresa de email hogof_hg@yahoo.com . Momentan nu am postat mare lucru fiindca nu are cine sa le vada,deci...
      O gasiti pe noul blog! :D See you there!
P.S: Pt castigatorii de Jurnalul de Traznit imi pare foarte rau!!!! Am fost o mare lenesa si mi-am pus in cap sa va trimit premiile saptamana asta. Adry o sa-ti raspuns si tie curand.

        Hello lume! Sincer,cu greu m-am incurajat sa scriul post-ul. Parca nu am chef de nimic. Fiindca am avut o perioada grea cu testele,tezele si proiectele in care am fost implicata nu am mai scris deloc pe blog. Dar chiar cu venirea vacantei,situatia nu s-a imbunatatit. Pur si simplu nu pot sa citesc. Profa de romana ne-a dat 19 carti de citit din care doar literatura romana e obligatorie,adica.....10 carti. Marea mea problema este ca eu cam detest literatura romana si nu prea imi plac autorii nostri,dar cea universala mi se pare foarte draguta. Eu cand citesc carti din obligatie tind sa nu fiu atenta si sa nu-mi dau interesul si exact asa ma simt acum. Daca ati stii cate achizitii am de cand n-am mai scris pe blog si pe care vad ca nu o sa apuc sa le citesc imi vine sa plang. Nici macar nu o sa am ce recenza pe blog in afara de ce mi-a dat profa pana le termin. :((
         Am schimbat aspectul cu ceva luat de pe net fiindca am avut ceva probleme cu vechiul design si momentan incerc sa invat sa lucrez in CSS fara alte programe,asa ca o sa folosesc acest template temporar. Mi-a fost dor,dar tot nu stiu cand o sa mai scriu pe blog. Nu vreau sa ma las de el,dar simteam ca trebuia sa las o explicatie pentru lunga mea absenta. O sa incerc sa pun premiile la posta zilele astea. Imi pare rau ca am intarziat atat,dar imediat concurs am plecat in Slovacia intr-un proiect si nu am mai avut timp sa le trimit plus ca eu si acum mai sunt chemata la scoala pentru una,alta. Offf,parca nu am vacanta!
           Hugs si sper sa imi revin si sa scriu recenzii din nou. Daca aveti o sugestie despre cum ar trebui sa ma descurc cu lectura asta obligatorie ca sa o fac mai rapida si mai placuta abia astept sa vad!

Well,hello! I'm happy to be part of this tour,now the second stop, where we have an awesome interview with Nichole Giles, the author of "Descendant". Hope you enjoy it!


You can see my review HERE







Nichole Giles was born in Nevada, and moved with her parents to a number of cities in and around the West. Writing is her passion, but she also loves to spend time with her husband and four children, travel to tropical and exotic destinations, drive in the rain with the convertible top down, and play music at full volume so she can sing along.









Hi Nichole! I'm happy to host you and your book on my blog.


1. What pushed you to write?
I am a sucker for a good story. I've always been a reader, and I read a few books that involved characters who were authors, and it sparked something in me. At one point, I wondered if I could do something like that too. I signed up for an online class, and then went to a writer's conference, and it snowballed from there.





2. What is the most difficult moment in writing a book?
Oh man, that's a tough one. I think beginnings are hard, because it's hard to know if you're starting in the right place until you actually get to the end. And I also think the middle is hard, because you have to keep people interested while you connect the middle and the end. It's a toss up which one is harder.



3. Do you find yourself in one of the characters?
I think there's a little of every author in each of their main characters, and since we use things we learn from real life to make the characters more real and more believable, I guess that does transfer a little bit sometimes.

4. What things inspire you when you're writing?
I love to drive in my car with the top down, listening to music. The tone of the music is totally dependent on my mood, but can be very influential about what I write later that day.

5. Some writers that you appreciate?
I am a fan of so many authors. I appreciate Elana Johnson, and Leigh Bardugo, George R.R. Martin, Maggie Stiefvater, Ally Condie, and a whole lot of other authors whose names I should mention, but that list would seriously take an entire post.

6. What book would you suggest without thinking too much?
Have you read Possession and Surrender by Elana Johnson? If so, then I definitely recommend Abandon, which is the third in the series. Also I recommend Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo.



7. What do you prefer: reading or writing?
Depends on the day. Reading is almost always easier, and I can do it to escape and relax. But I very much enjoy writing. I do it because I love it.

Thanks for the interview! I enjoyed it.

Seventeen-year-old Abigail Johnson is Gifted.

Blessed-or cursed-with Sight and Healing, Abby lives an unsettled life, moving from place to place and staying one step ahead of the darkness that hunts her. When she arrives in Jackson, Wyoming, she is desperate to maintain the illusion of normalcy, but she is plagued with visions of past lives mixed with frightening glimpses of her future. Then she meets Kye, a mysterious boy who seems so achingly familiar that Abby is drawn to him like he's a missing piece of her own soul.

Before Abby can discover the reason for her feelings toward Kye, the darkness catches up to her and she is forced to flee again. But this time she's not just running. She is fighting back with Kye at her side, and it's not only Abby's life at stake. (Goodreads)
