Rate:  4

Summary: Were-lynx Kennedy’s world implodes when she’s sent to a facility for illegal and torturous experimentation. Only after she’s rescued does she learn she’s been living a lie for 22 years. She can count on nothing from her past—not her parents, her surname, or her safety. Only the brother she didn’t know and his colony of were-lynxes offer any semblance of stability. Suspicious of everyone and unsure of her path forward, Kennedy reluctantly starts to realize that charming were-bobcat Asher Monroe might be her only hope.
Sportswriter Asher has been trying desperately to ferret out the truth behind why the sinister Nexus Group has been kidnapping and experimenting on were-cats. But he’s also willing to use his special mind-controlling ability to discover whether the gorgeous Kennedy is a threat to the colony or simply a lost soul.
As their need for the truth takes them into escalating danger, they discover explosive secrets that could bring Kennedy and Asher together — or rip them apart forever.

This ARC was sent to me by Irresistible Reads for review.
The premise of this book is very intriguing and caught my eye immediatly since it has the new concept of were-lynx which is something that I had never read about.
The characters are very good and complex, having many layers of personality that we get to know as we read along.
Kennedy changes as the story goes and you can see how her trust in people grows as her relationship with Asher gets serious, giving a terrific example on how the gosts of your past can be sent away by love and trust.
Getting to know each little detail and every little thought I felt like I was in the story, I felt like I was one of the characters.
This book takes your breath away with each chapter and ends the most amazing way ever possible! I don't know if I'm surprised but I can surely tell you that I fell in love with this story.

The Orphan Queen

Goodreads sinopsys:
She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.
She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.

She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others

To unravel the mystery putting her life in danger, Avery must follow a trail of clues from the monuments of Paris to the back alleys of Istanbul with two boys who work for the Circle—beautiful, volatile Stellan and mysterious, magnetic Jack. But as the clues expose a stunning conspiracy that might plunge the world into World War 3, she discovers that both boys are hiding secrets of their own.

Bookshelf Organization

Hi guys!!!!
I know I have been away for far too long but school has been keeping me from developing any kind of hobby!
I didn't had any breaks between tests and I also had scout compromises and doctor appointments to attend so it has been very very hard.
To reddem my self, I bring you a little post about bookshelf organization!
This sunday I finally had a little spare time so I took the time to organize and clean my shelfs!!! (#bookshelfporn)
I think this is something that every book lover struggles with "How do I do this s****?", so I'll tell you my small plan:
  1. Take everything from the shelves.
  2. Clean the shelves (dust and other stuff).
  3. Plan how do you want to organize them (I usually do: author, genre, love).
  4. Clean the dust from each book as you are putting them on the shelves (this is very important for people with allergies).
  5. Put all of your books on the shelves.
  6. Clean and put your decorations on the shelves.
  7. Open your window to let the dust out of the room (very important if the bookshelf in question is in your room).
  8. Enjoy your perfectly organized bookshelf!
This is how my shelves turned out:

One of my main goals, besides cleaning, was to try to gain more space for other books and I think I nailed it (before some of my books weren't even on my shelves)!
I'm pretty satisfied with the final result, what do you think?

Love, Ana
