Cover reveal: Oblivion by J.F. Johns

Today is the day! Finally we will find out how second book of “Eternal Darkness” by J.F. Johns will look like. I can promise you – it’s gorgeous πŸ™‚

28533634But first about “Eternal Darkness”:
The world is divided between humans and cyborgs.
Scarlet Lock is neither.
She is a soldier created to kill on command. But her memory has been erased and when she awakens in a government facility she soon discovers that this new world is a dangerous place, full of government secrets and cruel experiments performed in the name of progress.
With the help of a group of cyborgs, Scarlet will fight to uncover the truth and transform the future of the new world she now lives in.
Eternal Darkness is full of suspense, action and romance and will make readers question what it means to be human.

Next thing, be sure to read about J.F. Johns herself (press on the photo). Because not only she is a talented author, but also a very sweet and nice person. Trust a person, who had a honored to communicate with her few times (let’s not point fingers, but.. you know.. yeah, it was me :P)

This blog isn’t dead just yet!

I thought it would be good to explain why I was MIA for probably more than two months.

I could make a long, boring list about the things why I didn’t post anything. But the main thing is the fact that I lost the joy of reading for a while. I mean, I still was able to write reviews of previous reads, but I didn’t felt like it. It’s really horrible of disappearing like this, blog is a huge responsibility. However, I wasn’t good for any use. But I tried to keep my Bookstagram account as active as I could πŸ˜‰

The most important thing. I’m back!

I plan to read more, even I will start to work next Saturday. Also, I will write all reviews that I haven’t finished yet. Moreover, I will contact few authors and get ready some interviews for you, guys! So, it would be awesome, if you let me know in the comments few of the questions that you would like to know about any author in general πŸ˜‰ I promise, I will ask some of them for sure.

So, this is it for this time. I’m sorry for being gone for so long. I hope I will get ready some new projects for you all soon!.

SYNOPSIS:
*spoilers alert*

She’s writing about him. He’s writing about her. And everybody is reading between the lines…

For Erin Blackwell, majoring in creative writing at the New York City college of her dreams is more than a chance to fulfill her ambitions–it’s her ticket away from the tragic memories that shadow her family’s racehorse farm in Kentucky. But when she refuses to major in business and take over the farm herself someday, her grandmother gives Erin’s college tuition and promised inheritance to their maddeningly handsome stable boy, Hunter Allen. Now Erin has to win an internship and work late nights at a coffee shop to make her own dreams a reality. She should despise Hunter . . . so why does he sneak into her thoughts as the hero of her latest writing assignment?

Then, on the day she’s sharing that assignment with her class, Hunter walks in. He’s joining her class. And after he reads about himself in her story, her private fantasies about him must be painfully clear. She only hopes to persuade him not to reveal her secret to everyone else. But Hunter devises his own creative revenge, writing sexy stories that drive the whole class wild with curiosity and fill Erin’s heart with longing. Now she’s not just imagining what might have been. She’s writing a whole new ending for her romance with Hunter. . . . except this story could come true.

Challenge of May will be going on in Instagram under #MayWithGuTReadingTime tag. In that case I will be able to track your progress and maybe even share some favorite photos. And at the end of the months we will sum up our results here in my blog πŸ˜‰

Now there’s Solitaire. And Michael Holden.
I don’t know what Solitaire are trying to do, and I don’t care about Michael Holden.
I really don’t.

Hello April! β™₯

To be honest, this month gonna be very hard for me because of my studies. However, some exciting stuff is waiting to. But let’s look at the news consistently πŸ™‚

D.A. Roach photo

Firstly, my To Be Read” list is beautiful and soon enough I should be able to add two more books to it. Author D.A. Roach send me couple of her books for the honest reviews. The books are “Between the Bleeding Willows” & “Rarity”. I have to admit that I’m very excited for both of them. Moreover, very interesting fact is that D.A. Roach parents are originally from Lithuania, where I was born and live till this day. So, us fellow Lithuanian I feel very proud of this author πŸ™‚

Second thing, I won a giveaway on Instagram! Some time ago I participated in little contest hosted by author Karyn Sepulved to win her book “Choosing Xaverique”. Today I saw the video on Karyn account and I was first to be announced as winner of three. Giveaway was small, but that really made my day. Winner announcement πŸ™‚

Third thing, I started something like book club on Instagram with couple other girls. We are using #DreamReads tag and planning to start read-long of Dani Atkins books “Fractured” for two weeks from Sunday. The point is that everyone is welcome to join us. The more – the better! And if you have read the book by now, we would still be glad to see you on our discussion which also will be public on our bookish accounts in Instagram. BeFunky Design-1.jpg

Last, but not least, I started a group for bookaholic’s on Goodreads. Everyone is welcome to join our (for now) small circle here Proud Bookaholic’s β™₯ Also, I plan pretty soon add first review in “Not Book Review” section. You don’t know what that is? Check page menu, description are waiting there.

This is it for first post of April. If you know more about my activity go visit “About Me & Love for Books”, because there I left all my contacts and links to sites where I publish my bookish thoughts πŸ˜‰ IMG_20160401_110647.jpg

It’s not related, but left onlyΒ  26 days till my 21 birthday. I feel scare and excited. Maybe this year my birthday will be somehow special.

Bookish Challenge: April with BookCoyote

Hello My Dear Book Lovers!

I have to admit one thing that I – as bibliophile, bokaholic and bookstagrammer – haven’t done (yet). It’s sad, but in all 13 months that I spend on Bookstagram not at least once I participate on bookish challenge. You know, the ones that you have take photo every day for different tasks. However, two fellows Lithuanians on their Bookstagram account posted one interesting deal (challenge). So, finally, I decided to try out this trend on my @gutreadingtime account in Instagram 😏

I think I have what to show for all those days, but I’m most excited for 27th. Not only because I will all my attention to less known author (maybe even few), but I will celebrate my 21 birthday too. I mean, it’s quite scary to get older and older, but I believe that 21 is great age! Screenshot_2016-03-28-10-03-03

Getting back to the point. Are any of you are joining this challenge? If yes, for which day you are excited the most? Or maybe you attend some other challenge? Let me know what kind of it is πŸ˜‰ By the way, if this one gonna be successful for me – May challenge I will create myself.

P.S. Challenge goes under #BCBCApril tag in Instagram and are hosted by @BookCoyote account.Β
