Today, I Swear I'm Not Doing Anything

Hi! I just want to tell everyone that my classes has started last week, so expect a lot of creepy inactivity on this little blog. I have a class every day of the week, from Monday to Friday, and most of my free "home" time are spent doing school work and studying. Why? Because everyday is exam day. Well, not really. But just to be safe, I am assuming there will be an exam everyday. We really did have a terribly traumatizing exam on the first day of school, another exam on the second day, and another on the third day. Yes, three consecutive exams on the first week of school. What a very lucky week!

Anyway, see you around! I'll be back sooooooon!

And NO, I haven't watched The Fault in Our Stars yet. I want to, but I feel guilty spending money on a movie when I haven't even paid all my school fees yet.

Oh, look! School work! Very exciting and extremely enjoying! These are my review note, by the way.

BYE!

**Please don't mind the title of this blog post. I just can't think of anything good to put there**

Feature & Follow Friday (17)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme
hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!

Hello there!!!
I am teepee, and this is my blog, Little Librocubicularist. This blog (and I) is so fortunate to have been chosen as one of the featured blogs this week. Thank you Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!

Interview Questions:

1. When did you start blogging?

I officially started blogging January last year. But the blogger account has been around since March 2011. It was just a requirement for a school subject we had back then. Then, I discovered book blogging and wanted to try it out. I reconstructed the blog on October 2012 and posted a some random book reviews from Goodreads. I realized how awful and disorganized the blog looks back then, so I remodeled it again. At the start of 2013, Little Librocubicularist has been officially born.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Getting and reading books, and people actually liking what I had written. I feel relieved and glad whenever someone comments on one of my reviews, or even give them likes on Goodreads, It's like an assurance that what I'm doing is okay (if not good), and I can continue doing it.

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?

The blog is dedicated mostly to Young Adult books, and a few selected New Adult books as well. I read all genres of YA except horror, so expect a a diverse selection of books. But lately, I've been having a Contemporary fixation.

4. What are your favorite books?

Can we skip this question? It's so hard.

Okay, here are some of my favorite books

Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta is one of my favorite books. It has been one of the few books that has left me speechless after reading. Also, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (I have not read Clockwork Princess yet) and My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park has recently been added to my favorites list. There are a few more but I can't seem to remember... I feel bad for those who have not been mentioned.

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?

To be honest, getting books from authors or publishers is by far the most squeal-worthy moment I've ever experienced. It is number one on my list. And not far from the top spot is the part where authors actually acknowledge the things you said about their books. If getting books is squeal-worthy, this experience just blows my mind away.

Activity/Question:
How important is good writing to you? In an ideal world, a book would be beautifully written AND have great character development, plot, etc. But in the real world, which do you prefer: (1) Great characters and plot with lousy writing or (2) Middling character development and plot but gorgeous writing.

**********

In a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being "extremely important", I suppose it's around 5 or 6.

Confessions of a Self-Proclaimed Shadowhunter Fan

When I first read City of Bones a few years ago, I got totally hooked. I really liked the plot (the plot twists are crazy), the characters, and the way Cassandra Clare just winds up your emotions as you read the story. It has lengthy descriptions making the book very vivid and detailed. Some might find it a little too much, or a little too wordy for their tastes, but I was okay with it. In fact, I immediately became a fan of Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunter books. 

I went through the first three books like it was nothing, and I really enjoyed the whole reading experience. But when I picked up and started the fourth book, City of Fallen Angels, all the eagerness to read it was nowhere to be found. I don't know why, but I didn't feel like reading it. This happened two years ago, and up until now I haven't gotten past the first few pages of the book.

I have a few bits of theories as to why I haven't gotten past the third book.
#1 I was (sort of) satisfied with City of Glass' ending. There was an epic battle, characters died, relationships were mended and started, etc... And from what I remember, The Mortal Instruments was originally just a trilogy: City of Bones, City of Ashes and City of Glass. I don't know exactly what happened, but the story continued, and the trilogy became a six-book series. I guess my mind never got over the fact that City of Glass is not the last book. It is not yet the end. 
#2 This second theory is a little harder to explain, and it's a little weird. 
Have you ever felt kinda bored reading about a YA couple? See, I have this girl-boy fictional relationship problem. In my mind, there are stages of a YA Romantic Relationship: (1) the first encounter; (2) the largest and most significant part, the relationship-building and development; (3) the "it's official" stage; (4) the stage of conflicts and misunderstandings; and lastly (5) the "getting back together" stage. That's the normal course of a typical YA relationship for me. I love reading about the first two stages. But a little after the third and the fourth stages are my most hated parts. And guess what stage Jace and Clary's relationship are in? I'm not trying to be judgmental or anything, but I guess that'show my brain works these days. 
#3 Maybe I'm just not so into the series anymore. Yes, I am a fan of the series, but I really don't feel like continuing it at the moment. 
Anyway...
HAPPY RELEASE DAY!!!
700+ pages of pain, heartbreak, fury, love,
happiness, and all other intense emotions.
Get your copies now.

In time, I will probably be able to read and finish this series. But tight now, I just wish all the fans a wonderful reading experience (prepare yourselves!). And for those tragically broke, or those who are still saving up to buy the book, will the book trailer make you feel any better?


No, I have not seen the trailer.
I do not want any spoilers for City of Lost Souls and City of Fallen Angels.
Happy reading!!!
BYE!

Armchair BEA: Introduction

If you're a book blogger who can't attend Book Expo America and/or the BEA Blogger Convention in New York this May, you don't have to miss all the fun - this virtual convention is the place to be! Watch this space for all the news about daily blogging themes, discussions, giveaways and more! Armchair BEA is scheduled for May 26-31, 2014.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
Hello! I am teepee, from Albay, one of the many provinces in the Philippines. I have been blogging for about a year and a half. Now, why did I get into blogging? It's actually just a little experiment. I just wanted to try it out, to experience interacting with people who have the same interest as me. Also, to challenge my next to zero writing skills. 
If you want pictures and a little more information, you can check out my Armchair BEA Introduction last year,

Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online. 
A cute random mess of anything bookish, with a little bit of movie and music rave. 
You can find me on:   Twitter   |   Bloglovin'   |   Goodreads   |   Google+   |   Youtube
A bit more personal accounts:   Twitter   |   Tumblr   |   Instagram

What genre do you read the most? I love to read because ___________________ . 
For the past few months, I have been reading a lot of Young Adult Contemporaries. I don't know why, but I am currently drawn to reading realistic fiction these days. And honestly, I do love close to reality stories, and a little cliche here or there. 
I love to read because I like getting lost in different kinds of stories, in various worlds and places, and I like to get lost with the characters . I love to read because I like getting lost in the pages of a book. 

What was your favorite book read last year? What’s your favorite book so far this year?

2013: Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
2014: Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park (so far)
Both books are young adult contemporary novels. One involves a tragic story of friendship and love, with a little bit romance, and heart-breaking bittersweet ending. The other one is a family-centered story (a little sad and painful as well) balanced with a sweet tale of young love.

What does your favorite/ideal reading space look like? (Pinterest encouraged!)
Any of these three reading spaces will make me a very happy girl, but I like the third one the best, minus the framed pictures. It's a little too vintage for my taste, but it looks so comfortable. (Images are from WeHeartIt)

Awww, that's five questions already? Okay. Bye!

Soccer star Lainey Mitchell is gearing up to spend an epic summer with her amazing boyfriend, Jason, when he suddenly breaks up with her—no reasons, no warning, and in public no less! Lainey is more than crushed, but with help from her friend Bianca, she resolves to do whatever it takes to get Jason back.

And that’s when the girls stumble across a copy of The Art of War. With just one glance, they’re sure they can use the book to lure Jason back into Lainey’s arms. So Lainey channels her inner warlord, recruiting spies to gather intel and persuading her coworker Micah to pose as her new boyfriend to make Jason jealous.

What’s a girl to do when what she wants is totally different from what she needs? How do you figure out the person you’re meant to be with, if you’re still figuring out the person you’re meant to be?

COVER CRAZY: This Shattered World (Starbound #2)


Aime Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Expected Publication: Dec. 23, 2014
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

Goodreads Summary:

The second installment in our epic Starbound trilogy introduces
a new pair of star-crossed lovers on two sides of a bloody war.
Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met.

Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet's rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents.

Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the inhospitable planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion.

Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.

The stunning second novel in the Starbound trilogy is an unforgettable story of love and forgiveness in a world torn apart by war.
Presenting the cover for the Starbound trilogy's second installment... This Shattered World

How I wish I could answer this question with a very big YES. But sadly, I have not met any author yet. If you count school textbook authors, then my answer will be "yes". YA authors or any fiction author, NO.

COVER CRAZY: Ugly Love

Colleen Hoover
Expected Publication: Aug. 5, 2014
Publisher: Atria Books

Goodreads Summary:
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn't love at first sight. They wouldn't even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn't want love; she doesn't have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

And finally, the cover of Ugly Love (which you probably saw already)... Drum roll, please.

This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! Hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

This will be a cumulative showcase of the new books I got from February until today.

I'm Here, I'm Still Here

HELLO!
Say "hello" to the cute kitty cat...
take a deep breath, and smile.
Now,  let's proceed.

I have a lot of things I want to say to every reader and follower of my blog, most of it regarding to my completely long absence from the blogger community and my lack of blog and social media activity.

First and foremost, I would like to apologize. I know I have been MIA for months, and the reason for my unannounced absence is that I have been very busy with school. With the end of the academic year approaching, it has been very hectic these past couple of months - a lot of papers and projects need to be submitted, a handful of exams every week, year-end requirements need to accomplished, and the of course, preparing for the dreaded final exams. This accurately describes what I went through every week of February and April, except for the weekend part which I also spent doing take home school work.

I should have informed everyone beforehand of my upcoming busy school schedule. But I didn't I let every one hanging, and I am really, truly  sorry for that. Hope all of you can forgive me.

The next thing I am going to tell you (or you're going to read) might sound a little bizarre. Here it goes...

Spread the Love!

Yes, people! It's Valentine's Day! It is Friday, but it's not Single Awareness Day or Independence Day for people not in relationships. It's Valentine's Day for everybody. Let's stop being bitter and just spread the love. There are so many people (and books) to share the day with, like our friends, our family, or our fellow bloggers and bookworms. Relationship status is not really that important. As long as we are all happy and loved, everything's going to be okay. Yay!

Anyway, for those of you who are single and loving it, or those who proudly wear a no boyfriend since birth shirt, what did you do today? Or what are your plans?

Me? I paid some of the house bills which took so long because of the very long line; bought a few snacks while I was out and pigged out when I got home; read and finished a book: watched a movie; and went online to do some surfing. Sounds very exciting, right?

COVER CRAZY: GET EVEN by Gretchen McNeil Cover Reveal + Giveaway

Welcome to the the Official Cover Reveal for
Gretchen McNeil's GET EVEN (Get Even #1)
Release Date: September 16th 2014
Publisher: Balzer+Bray


Synopsis:
Follows the secretive exploits of four high school juniors - Kitty, Olivia, Margot and Bree - at an exclusive Catholic prep school.

To all outward appearances, the girls barely know each other. At best, they don't move in the same social circles; at worst, they're overtly hostile.

Margot Mejia – academically ranked number two in her class, Margot is a focused overachiever bound for the Ivy League. 

Kitty Li – captain of the California state and national champion varsity girls' volleyball team, she's been recruited by a dozen colleges and has dreams of winning an Olympic gold medal.

Olivia Hayes – popular star of the drama program, she's been voted "most eligible bachelorette" two years running in the high school yearbook and has an almost lethal combination of beauty and charm.

Bree Deringer – outcast, misfit and the kind of girl you don't want to meet in a dark alley, the stop sign red-haired punk is a constant thorn in the side of teachers and school administrators alike.

Different goals, different friends, different lives, but the girls share a secret no one would ever guess. They are members of Don't Get Mad, a society specializing in seeking revenge for fellow students who have been silently victimized by their peers. Each girl has her own reason for joining the group, her own set of demons to assuage by evening the score for someone else. And though school administration is desperate to find out who is behind the DGM "events", the girls have managed to keep their secret well hidden. 

That is until one of their targets – a douchebag senior who took advantage of a drunk underclassman during a house party, videotaped it on his phone, and posted it on YouTube – turns up dead, and DGM is implicated in the murder.

Now the girls don't know who to trust, and as their tenuous alliance begins to crumble, the secrets they've hidden for so long might be their ultimate undoing.

And now, may I present to you the cover for Get Even!*drum rolls*

The Fault in Our Stars + Divergent Movie Trailer

Who will play who?
One of the most critical parts of recreating a book into a movie, aside from filming it as close to the story details as possible, is the casting. It is also one of the most awaited moment by the fans during the pre-filming phase of the movie. Not only is it hard to find the right actors, but it is really hard to impress the "already established fan base" of the book. If you don't come close to their dream cast, all hell will break lose on every social media site.

The Siblings, The Lovers

When Shailene Woodley was casted as Tris in the upcoming Divergent movie, I had really no objections. Even with the other casts, I feel okay with them. I don't see them as the Tris, Four, Jeanine or Caleb in my head, but I think they will be able to pull it off. Even the other fans seem to agree because I haven't read any extreme hate towards the cast. They even freaked out when Kate Winslet  was chosen to play Jeanine. So the Divergent movie is almost good to go!

But imagine my surprise when I found out that Shailene (Tris) was also chosen to play Hazel Grace Lancaster in the TFiOS movie.Wow! She has landed the most talked about roles in the YA booksphere. (BTW, she will also play Mary Jane in the sequels of The Amazing Spiderman movies. Lucky girl!) My shock did not end there... Ansel Elgort, the one playing Tris' brother, Caleb, in Divergent, will be Augustus Waters. I was like, "WHY?" I do not "not like" him for the role, I just can't imagine how I'm going to see him as a brother on March, and as a lover on June. It's going to be a slightly awkward movie experience. But I'm still hopeful that these actors will play their parts well, enough to make me forget that both of them played other roles in other movies.

If you haven't seen the movie trailers yet, here they are:

DIVERGENT
 
The first trailer released for the Divergent movie was not good. It did nor persuade me  to watch the movie. It was all about Tris and Four's love story and all those mushy stuff. But this one is good, better. It tells the what the movie is about. It is interesting and intriguing, Thank God the trailer became better.

 THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
This trailer made some fans shed some tears. Really!  It was great. And based from the trailer, the movie team paid attention to the book details, and the scenes shown were actually recognizable from the book. Clap clap clap!

P.S. I did not mean to rant about the cast here.. but it came out as it is.
P.P.S. Divergent will be on movie theaters in March this year, and TFiOS on June.

Since I only buy zero to one book per week, I have decided to do my "Stacking the Shelves" post once a month only - every last Saturday of each month. My January post was supposed to be last Saturday, January 25, but my monthly haul was not complete at that time. I was still expecting a few books, so I decided to wait until today.

BOOK BLURB: Flipped


Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Number of Pages: 212
Date Published: May 13, 2003
Genre: Middle Grade

Goodreads:

Flipped is a romance told in two voices. The first time Juli Baker saw Bryce Loski, she flipped. The first time Bryce saw Juli, he ran. That’s pretty much the pattern for these two neighbors until the eighth grade, when, just as Juli is realizing Bryce isn’t as wonderful as she thought, Bryce is starting to see that Juli is pretty amazing. How these two teens manage to see beyond the surface of things and come together makes for a comic and poignant romance.

Excerpt Blast: Seeking Her by Cora Carmack

by Cora Carmack
Jackson Hunt gets his turn in this Finding It prequel novella …

Jackson Hunt hasn't been out of the military for long, but he needs to get a job and find a sense of normalcy if he is going to keep his demons at bay. The job that falls into his lap, though, is anything but normal.

Becoming bodyguard (and babysitter) to spoiled rich girl Kelsey Summers isn't exactly what he had in mind, but it's a chance to travel, to get away. The catch: Kelsey's father doesn't want her to know she's being followed.

She's vibrant and infuriating, exciting and reckless, mysterious and familiar. When Jackson sees her falling into the same patterns he suffered years ago, he decides it's time to stop watching and help her instead. But getting to know Kelsey is more difficult than he thought, especially because the more he knows her, the more he wants her.

Another Little Piece of My Heart (Bonus Scene) + Giveaway

Tracy Martin

What if your devastating break-up became this summer’s hit single? In this rock-and-roll retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, music can either bring you together or tear you apart.

At her dying mother’s request, Claire dumps Jared, the only boy she’s ever loved. Left with a broken family and a broken heart, Claire is furious when she discovers that her biggest regret became Jared’s big break. While Jared is catapulted into rock-star status, another piece of Claire’s heart crumbles every time his song plays on the radio.


The summer after her senior year, it’s been months since the big break-up, and Claire is just trying to keep her head down and make it through a tense trip to the beach with her family. But when Jared shows up, and old feelings reignite, can Claire and Jared let go of the past? Or will they be stuck singing the same old refrain?

Amazon |  Barnes & Noble 

I have been fortunate enough to receive an ecopy of Another Little Piece of My Heart from Netgalley. Although I haven't written a decent review yet (what I have here are just random notes and ideas), I can tell you that this book is as good as it sounds. The feeling while reading the book was a mix of lightness, humor, frustration and angst. You'll feel the sweetness, the occasional tingles, and sometimes, a little tightening of your chest. It's not your ordinary contemporary story wherein the plot is focused on the gradual development of the love story. With this one, they were the couple, it ended, and now the question: Will they get back together?

Another Little Piece of My Heart is like a fun ride; like a sweet drive; and like a potential hit song. It may not be the best I have read and there were a few things that I had issues with, but it did leave something behind.

For those who have read Another Little Piece of My Heart, and even those who want to read it, Tracy Martin has a special treat for us - a bonus scene from Jared's point of view and a giveaway.

Activity/Question:
Resolutions: Put together your blogger resolution list for all of us to see!

**********

Ah, resolutions... I have been avoiding that word from the moment the new year countdown began. It's not that I don't have any resolutions, because I do have some. But they are just similar to the other bloggers' resolution, so why post them again?

Anyway, going back to the question... The blogger resolution list I made on January 1st was a little vague. Maybe it's not even a resolution list, but more of "what I want to accomplish" list. Just click HERE if you want to see that post.

There are also a few things I want to add...

** I will reduce the unread books on my book case.

** I will have more meaningful posts on the blog aside from "Feature and Follow", "Stacking the Shelves", book reviews, cover reveals, etc... I'm going to try out discussion posts.

** I will interact more with people in the blogosphere.

** I will improve my writing skills and write more substantial reviews.

** School and studies first before YA books.
(Yes, I promised myself that this year, I will not be distracted by these gorgeous books anymore. I will have self-control. I will improve my grades and graduate college with flying colors.)

BOOK BLURB: Where You'll Find Me



Author: Erin Fletcher
Publisher: Entangled: Teen
Number of Pages: 211
Expected Pub. Date: January 7, 2014
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
(Received an ARC from Netgalley for an honest review)

Goodreads:

When Hanley Helton discovers a boy living in her garage, she knows she should kick him out. But Nate is too charming to be dangerous. He just needs a place to get away, which Hanley understands.
