BookCon Day One Diary

IMG_9006

Happy Tuesday to all! I know my blog posting has been spotty lately and I do apologize I was working a lot because I took off for a vacation! As some of you who follow on Twitter, you already know what that vacation was for and of course by the title to you now lol! I went to BookCon 2019 my first BookCon ever and OMG I FREAKING LOVED IT! In this blog post, I will tell you how everything went to the best of my ability because I don’t think words can describe how much I loved it and how amazing it truly was for me! If you are more of a visual person I do have my day one vlog up and live on my channel here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzbUZ19tKls&t=35s I will also leave it down below! Also, this type of blog post is very new to me so have mercy on ya girl lol but I will do my best to not rant but to also fill you in with good detailing! DISCLAIMER I AM NOT BEING SPONSERED TO MENTION THESE PRODUCTS THESE ARE MY OWN OPINIONS!

Image-1

Okay so I am staying with my nana and she lives in Long Island so on the first day I did wake up semi-early because I knew we had to take the train and the subway! But what your girl did not know is that we had to take a bus as well lol which did eat up some time but I am not complaining, it was all a learning experience!  I had already figured out my outfit the night before I decided on a cute white crop top from H&M, stripped colorful flair out pants from Papaya, black booties from JustFab, I also wore a little tan cover up but I forgot where I got it from lol ( here is a picture of that!).  I don’t usually do my make up unless of special occasions, but of course I did for BookCon I was very self-conscious at first but at the end, I overall loved what I did and got many compliments on it! For my makeup, these are the products I used in order of putting it on my face( Aveeno moisturizer, IT CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream in the shade Rich Honey, Bare Minerals face color in the shade Warmth I use this as a bronzer, Eyeshadow palette The Saharan By Juvia’s its the pink one I know there are other colors of this palette lol, I used the colors Katsina, Jamila, and Wodaabe, I didn’t have highlight so I used my Peachy Nudes eyeshadow palette by RueBeauty in the shade Peach Pie on my nose to act as highlight and it worked lol, lastly my lips I used Almay in the shade Treat Yourself). For all you makeup bloggers/ Youtubers I don’t know how you do it lol that took me forever to apply on my face as well as type out what products I used lol!

After getting ready and quickly taking cute pics we were off to the train! I personally love the transportation in New York by far my favorite because riding the train and even the subway sometimes can be really peaceful or it’s just so lively! I live for a good adrenaline rush, I am not going to lie I was getting nervous with how late it was getting and the fact that I somewhat had an organized plan or so I thought lol! When we arrived it was around 11:30 I was so excited about getting my badge and being around people who feel the same love and appreciation I do when it comes to books! I am not going to lie I honestly teared up I had a smile on my face ear to ear because I finally made it after all the years I wanted to go and attend one of the biggest conventions for books I was finally there, and nothing in the world took that away from me. As soon as I stepped foot into BookCon you see the organized bookish chaos and personally I loved it, it felt like being in a city within a city! Now like I said before I had a plan but what I realized is that having a plan for something like this won’t always go exactly the way you want it. Usually, for me, I am not okay with that but for some reason, it didn’t bother me that I missed out on something the whole time I was personally just enjoying the atmosphere and living in the moment. But I did strategize I had my nana wait in lines while I was in another ( my advice for BookCon is BRING AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN, trust me you will thank me later lol).

Image-1 (1)While in a line by myself I made a friend ( also another thing I love about this convention everyone was very kind and friendly!) her name is Marie and we legit spent the whole day together! She was there with her mom, I was there with my nana it was legit a match made in heaven! We had such a great time just talking, standing in lines together, taking pictures, and just everything under the sun! I was really afraid when my nana and I  weren’t together that I would be the awkward shy looking person that looked terrified by herself! Thankfully that wasn’t the case we talked about books, what we wanna do as a living and just thing we enjoyed! We also encouraged each other with little things as far as handing out our business cards or just saying go for it when it came to wanting to talk to people we both admired!  Overall I loved meeting her and had such an amazing time spending the day with someone who is just as passionate as I am about books <3!

Image-1 (2)

Now I am just going to talk about all of the other lovely people I might at BookCon and how freaking unreal it was for your girl like OMG I’m still in shock! The first person I met was Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite authors of Dear Haiti, Love Alaine which comes out September 3 by the way ;). They were so nice and sweet and omg I can’t put into words how kind they are it was very inspirational talking to them and meeting a sister author duo of color all the things I love!  The next person I met who was just as equally sweet was Debbie Rigaud her book is Truly Madly Royally which comes out next month on the 30th! I only met her for a brief moment but was able to snap a pic with her and I noticed how our lip color favored one another lol! As most of you know I am a booktuber which means I watch booktube as well and you guys I met Hannah from a clockwork reader and Hailey from Hailey in bookland! Zoe wasn’t with them at the moment sadly but omg it was so cool they were sweet I mentioned to Hailey how me and my bf watch her channel together and how he actually finds what she has to say interesting and it keeps him captivated! Lol, she was very flattered and said thank you and I got a picture with the both of them which was also so surreal! 39C271E3-948F-425B-8848-311FD350849E The next person I met was intentional because I knew she had a booth and I wanted to meet her so bad and that is Kristen Martin Youtuber and Amazon bestselling author! We talked about her books, of course, her coaching style, and how amazing her hair looks! We took pics and I am featured in her vlog waving for a brief second was just really great meeting her and seeing that she has such great energy in person that she does in her videos. Now the last two people I met was purely out of luck and I just I honestly could not believe it! Ya”ll I met Nic Stone and Tochi Onyebuchi in person like in person! I was over by the Penguin Random House booth checking on something and at first, I saw Tochi I introduced myself, of course, I had to ask if he knew about any other ways to get Wargirl ARCs at BookCon ( sadly he did not) but then I told him about my blog post where I featured Wargirl! The first thing he said after that was “OMG THAT WAS YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH!” I nearly passed out he recognized my work and genuinely appreciated it! I gave him a business card because promo ASF lol but no he was just so nice about everything and ahhhhh I felt important and a little famous lol! So right as Tochi and I where talking, we spotted Nic he was waving at her trying to get her attention lol he legit said ” You see how brand new friends wanna act when they get big lol smh” I started laughing my butt off he truly is hilarious no lie! So after that, I like smiled and waved at Nic and she came up to me and said well Hi gorgeous and yet again your girl almost died lol, I said hello back we talked about her work and how it’s just truly inspiring and of course makeup she complimented my makeup yall the queen of slaying looks liked my makeup! I couldn’t help but gush, authors are truly amazing, genuine, chill ass people even in person!

Also if you couldn’t attend BookCon, please do not feel left out or any less a part of the community it legit took me years to finally attend!

Tithe By Chani Lynn Feener: Cover Reveal!

Happy Saturday to all my name is JaNae and you’re at JheartLovesBooks! I know I normally don’t do an intro but I have a lot of new followers since we just hit 100! Thank you so much for following and reading my little section of the internet where I rant, swoon, and fangirl about books:). Today I am apart of a cover reveal for “Tithe” I am working with Chani Lynn Feener and her publishers on spreading the news about her book that is coming out this year! It is a YA urban fantasy that features dark fae ❤ <3, it is set to release on Halloween too, perfect timing if you ask me! I will leave the blurb down below and of course the beautiful cover!

“Cursed with the sight; torn between forbidden loves…
Arden Archer is cursed: she can see the Unseelie fae. It is a gift that sends the women of her family to an early grave. But there’s a way to break the curse: offer herself up as the Tithe. Every seven years, the faerie regents pit cursed humans against one another, offering salvation to both parties. 
This year, Arden is one of those human competitors–a Heartless–and with the help of Unseelie Mavek Midnight, she intends to win. That is, until Eskel arrives, unearthing secrets and planting doubt. Can Mavek be trusted? Is there more to the Tithe than what he’s told her? 
Torn between the forbidden Unseelie she’s loved and the new human boy with a dark past, Arden must discover the truth before All Saint’s Eve, or risk losing her soul to a beautiful monster.”

Eight Hundred Grapes Review

“Eight Hundred Grapes” Review: img_1938

Hello book-lovers! Im sorry ive been gone for so long but ive had alot of exciting things happen for one  I had the honor of reviewing Ecolobooks romance box as well as the book that came with it; Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave! This is a “non-spoiler” review, and I hope you all enjoy! 🙂 

img_1801-1

I went into this book somewhat blindly, I only read the first couple of lines from the back of the book. In my opinion, reading this book knowing little to nothing is the best way to go. But even before reading the book just by looking at the cover and title you can tell its going to be a romance. But what you don’t expect from this book is a heart felt, plot twisting and VERY family driven story. Notice I did not say “love” story. Even though this book to me would be an amazing “Hallmark” movie its not your average “Hallmark” movie. It wont suffocate you with insta-love or an overbearing gushy story that just does not seem real  or believable. What it will give you is an “synchronization story” that everything that happens in the story falls into place. Not fate, not at all, just synchronization. So yes it is a love story its just not the one you think you would get lol if that makes sense.  I did enjoy this book very much though, its the type of guilty pleasure you can read alone or with your chatty book club. When it came to the characters, (especially the main character “Georgia”) they all where VERY realistic! Which is a blessing and a curse in my opinion. I say that because, as readers we want all the characters to feel “real” (duhh), but the down part is that they make very real and relatable choices which could give you “Aww” moments and “ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!” moments (emotional rollercoaster type of “feels” lol). I gave this book a four out of five stars because this book certainly gave me more than I expected it to.  From the crazy beginning, to a very much secretive middle, onto a plot twisting yet satisfying end.The other joy about this book is that it can be read at any time of the year and you will still have the same feelings for it, which is perfect especially if you’re in a reading slump! The only reason why I gave this book four stars instead of five, is because at the end I was completely satisfied! I know what you’re thinking, “JaNae isn’t that a good thing?” Maybe for some readers, but for me, I like all my “‘main” questions answered but I need a little something at the end that leaves me guessing. All around though this book gets a ” JheartLOVED” rating, and it was a fabulous pick for a Romance box. So I want to thank Ecolobooks for sending me their delicious box to review that came with a devouring read! I hope you all have a great day and remember ❤ Always Love Your Books ❤

DoonTakeover Interview/Giveaway

Hello my fellow book bloggers and lovers! I am back with another post. My apologies again for being off for quit some time but – ugh – life has been such a hassle lately. But for my absences I have an amazing intterview for you all as well as a giveaway!!!!! I had so much fun with this interview plus I got a two for one! Who did I interview? You must be wondering…. Well its Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon who are behind the majestic Doon series! I contacted them because the final book in the Doon series (Forever Doon) comes out August 2 and I decided to host/create #Doontakeover. Which includes a interview, a giveaway, a review of all three books, and PICTURES!!!!!!!!!! Haha, I hope you guys enjoy this part of the doontakeover and use the #doontakeover to show your love for the series, and so I can see your pictures and or reviwes!

FullSizeRender

1.How long have the two of you been friends?

Almost ten years!

2. Was Doon your debut novel? If not what was?

Lorie: Yes, DOON was my first published novel. Carey has a self-published novel called THE GUARDIAN, THE HALO CHRONICLES. You should all check it out!

3.How long did the process take since it wasn’t a one women show?

The first novel was a bit rough at first. We also had multiple agents giving us edits, so we rewrote Doon seven times in two years! The other three novels took about 9 months each, which is longer than it would probably take either one of us to write a solo novel. I wrote my upcoming YA Romantic Thriller, GILT HOLLOW in about six months.

4. Before Doon, were you both aspiring authors waiting for your big break?

Yes, ma’am! We both have novels sitting on our computers that were never (at least not yet) published.

5. Who was your favorite and most difficult character to write?

Lorie: My favorite character to write is Veronica. Her angsty, yet idealist personality reminds me of myself as a teen. The most difficult would be in FOREVER DOON…this is a bit of a reveal for some of our readers, but we wrote Jamie and Duncan’s POV’s in the fourth book and Jamie was difficult for me to wrap my head around at first. Once I got into his head though, I loved writing his chapters! Carey: My favorite to write is Mackenna. I love her sense of humor and her rabbit holes. The hardest for me to write was Duncan in FOREVER DOON, for the same reasons as Lorie.

6. How did the two of you pitch yourselves to publishers or literary agents?

We found our literary agent and she pitched the series to publishers. It was actually her brilliant idea to turn Doon into a four book series. We’d only originally envisioned one or two books. We found our lit agent through an email query letter.

7. Did writing Doon require a lot of fun long sleepovers and or chat writing sessions? If so which one is the most memorable?

Yes! All of the above! The most memorable was when we were at a writer’s conference, holed-up in our hotel room brain-storming a new concept for Shades of Doon. We both knew the original idea we’d pitched to our publisher wasn’t right, but we couldn’t come up with something new until that night. When we thought of the idea to have the girls sucked out of Doon to face their past lives, it was like lightning struck–we knew we’d found the perfect concept!

8. Since Doon is coming to an end should  readers be looking for any new books from this dynamic duo? Or will you guys be writing independently?

Right now, we’re working on individual projects. Carey is working on a fantasy/retelling project and I have GILT HOLLOW releasing September 27th! I’m also writing some individual projects; a historical YA and a YA epic fantasy.

9. Have either of you been to Scotland? If so how did that inspire your writing?

Sadly, neither one of us has stepped foot in Scotland, but Carey has been to England. I’ll let her tell you about that… I got to Northern England in my travels and I drew from the countyside and experiences.

10. Can you offer any advice  for aspiring authors and or coauthors?

Write every day. Even clumsy words are better than no words.

Thanks for everything!

Lorie

I would just like to say thank you again to Carey and Lorie for letting me interview them! And letting me be apart of the #doontakeover! Now for the givaway! I have a bunch of swag for all of you from the authiors, which incudes signed posters and bookmarks from the authors. The link will be listed below! And remeber ❤ Always Love Your Books ❤

Can We Talk About: Poetry

Screenshot_2016-05-05-17-42-06-1.pngHappy Saturday! Book lovers of all ages. The weekend is here time to crack some spines open and read! As well as blog, since its Mothers Day tomorrow I thought I would do my Can We Talk About segment on Poetry. Since it is sweet, beautiful and meaningful just like our moms! So Can We Talk About Poetry? I for one love poetry I always enjoyed learning about it in English each year and reading it. I learned more how people feel with their poems rather than talking to them weird I know.

I feel like poetry is somewhat like lyrics to a song it doesn’t  always have to rhyme and it doesn’t have to make sense to everyone. Its suppose to make you think and feel some type of way or at least make you question things differently. I think poetry was  music when it first started out it just didn’t have a melody with it but through out centuries went by it evolved to what we call music now. Even artist call themselves poets which I have learned to respect since it is true. If you take out the music part out of it and only hear the lyrics it is a poem that has turned into a story. I feel like I listen to poetry each day and I love it.

Screenshot_2016-05-07-11-19-01-1.png

When it comes to poetry we read in books I don’t read much of anything new sadly because I have no idea where to start. But recently I was contacted by Jennae Cecelia a self published author of her new poetry book Bright Minds Empty Souls! I went on her instagram page and saw some of her poems that are in her book and fell completely in love!” Bright Minds Empty Souls is filled with over 200 poems about love and heart break. Its a book made with love about falling in love. It is meant to be read in both happy and sad moods. It is inspiration for others to follow their passions. This book is for dreamers!” – Jennae Cecelia. After she explained to me what her book was about I automatically wanted to help promote her work! Plus she is a self published author which is inspirational all on it own and she is also working on her second poetry book. I also find the cover of this book quite beautiful! I have only read a few of her poems from her book but my favorite so far is “Strangers” its so poetic simple and is relatable as well. You guys need to go pick up her book like today! Its a perfect Mothers day present or something you might want to keep for yourself! I will leave all of Jennae information down below!

Not only do I love to read poetry but I also write a little myself! I mainly write it for myself or most of it can be found in the book im currently writing. I will be sharing some of my works on here in the future or when I think its good enough for all of you too see lol. But  my relatives think im good which is a confidence boost but I cant wait to see what you all think when I post some on here! .Do you have a favorite poem or favorite poet? My favorite poem is” O Tell Me The Truth About Love” by W.H. Auden. Alright that’s all for now I hope you all have a great Mothers Day weekend! An happy Mothers Day to all the moms out their! And remember ❤ Always Love Your Books ❤

The Next Together Review by Lauren James

First let me apologize for not being active for more than a MONTH!!!! Ugh yes I know horrible. But I do have a review post to make up for this! If you follow me on Goodreads you know that around mid March I finished The Next Together by Lauren James! After finishing this book I had very mixed feelings about it. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed it very much but I had no idea how to rate this book! On Goodreads I gave it a three star rating but after going back to it and sticky tabbing my favorite parts of this book I am now giving it a four star rating. Before I explain why I had a change of heart let me tell you more about what this book is about.

“How many times can you lose the one you love? Kathrine and Matthew are destined to be born again and again. Each time they fall hopelessly in love, only to be tragically separated. Maybe the next together will be different.” WOOOWWW okay when I first saw this book I was head over heals because of how gorgeous it looked but then when I looked it up on Goodreads and read the synopsis I wanted it sooooooo badly! Alright so its obvious this book is about reincarnation which is new for me. So at first I didn’t know how I would react to this book, because in the beginning I was very confused when it came to the format of this book. You see this book is told by Kate, Katherine, Katy and Katherine Galloway and yes before you ask its told  by the same person….. Well sorta you see its the same girl but in different time periods! Trippy right well after I got that hang of that my only other concern was would I be able to connect to her as well as the romance!

But my fears quickly went away! I love how Lauren wrote this book its like all the versions of Kates where one person but divide in four characteristics that made one person. I hope that make sense for those who have yet to read this amazing book. Now when it came to the romance with all the Kates and Matthews I loved all four of the love stories that made up this big love story. I think my favorite time period romance was Kate and Matthew in 2019. Im not going to go into that much detail so I don’t spoil you but they where just sooo cute my only complaint is that I didn’t get to read a lot from that time period. I don’t think I have a least favorite time period but what I will say is that Kathrine at times would make me a little frustrated! But when it came to all the Matthews I juts couldn’t get enough of him like ugggg hes so freaking cute and his personality I just love he seems so real ( another book boyfriend added to the list).

All I have to say if you haven’t read The Next Together what the heck are you doing!!!!! Go as in go now order it pick it up from anywhere and read it!!!!! Well at least read it before the next book comes out THIS October which is called The Last Beginning! Im so excited to continue this amazing story!  Before I go I will also like to announce that I am in love with Spotify! So for now on when I do a review I will add a song that I think  goes best with the book im reviewing soooooo for this lovely book I choose Lay me down by Sam Smith and John Legend! Trust me you will understand completely if you have read the book and heard the song! Okay that’s all for now and remember ❤ Always Love Your Books ❤

For one I am so sorry I have not been on lately! My Word documents expired and I couldn’t find my flash drive and a whole bunch of other crazy things. But im back with a lovely book tag that I have created! ❤ I am combining my favorite two thing which are Books (of course) and my favorite tv show Once upon A Time. So in honor of tonight’s season six premier! ( Question 4 spoiler alert for Paper Towns and Eleanor and Park!)

a6f171c72358649c9b92759a92d929dc

  1. “I will always find you” That one couple that always found there way back to each other? Okay this might be a cliché answer but its so true I choose Peeta and Katniss from The Hunger Game Series!
  2. 59a9d39d6897a4ceec6019dafda518a4The “Outlaw Queen” Two fictional characters one good and one bad that would make the perfect OTP? Well for this one neither of these characters where bad per say they were just very unlikeable lol. So I pick Celeste from The selection series and Gale from The Hunger Games lol I know its weird but I think they would be cute togetherd5ade42c7097840798caa4cdbc200332
  3. The “Emma Character” A character that is compatible with more then one person. Mare from Red Queen I have yet to finish this book so please no spoilers! But from what I have read so far there are three guys I can see her with. But that might change when I actually finish the first book lol

c41529839d955cdfac37aa00a2fc48054.The Evil Queen Heart ache. A fictional character that has suffered the worst heart ache </3 😦 . I have two for this one but fair warning if you have yet to read Paper Towns or Eleanor and Park skip over this question.  I choose Q from Paper Towns and Park from Eleanor and Park ugggggg the struggle for these two male character when it comes to love made me cry and have the feels!

Can We Talk About Book Subscription Boxes Part One

Can We Talk About Book Subscription Boxes Part One!

Happy Saturday! This week we are just going to jump  straight into this weeks Can We Talk About. Can We Talk About Book Subscription Boxes!? If you don’t know what a book subscription box, it is a box of course that usually contains a book and some awesome bookish items. I will be talking about several boxes that catch my eye in this article. I’m going to be doing this Can We Talk About in two parts because I just couldn’t pick between all these lovely boxes. This is not sponsored at all and all opinions are my very ownJ.

Screenshot_2016-02-06-10-03-54-1First I would like to talk about BooklyBox! The first thing I would like to say about this lovely box is that it looks so chic! It’s black with white lettering and just a box you would want to take a picture of! The one thing I think people will appreciate about BooklyBox is that it is very versatile. It has a variety of genres too choose from not just YA. So it’s perfect for any age or any type of reader. In your BooklyBox you will receive a book of course a bookmark, book stick tabs and of course a card saying what you got in your box for the month. I have heard that they will be adding more to their box in the near future. Another thing I love about this box is that their very active with their followers, they have created a book community for the subscribers. BooklyBox also provides a book to a child, teen and adult in less fortunate countries with every box sold! love it so much its new unique and creative. I will leave all links so you guys can go check them out.

Screenshot_2016-02-06-10-13-59-1The next box I’m going to talk about shouldn’t be any surprise. OwlCrate! This is a very popular and well known box in the YA community. This box is strictly and perfectly made for YA lovers. This box also looks extremely cute and so creatively made. In your OwlCrate you should expect a book and three to five bookish items. With OwlCrate it is always a mystery of what is in it. But with each OwlCrate they have a theme of the month! Plus they always have special deals for their subscribers and new subscribers. I love seeing on boookstagram what is in the latest month’s box! It’s like Christmas every month. Plus the creators of OwlCrate are amazing and so sweet and nice. I highly recommend this box if you’re a YA lover or as a gift for one they will love it!

Screenshot_2016-02-06-10-08-06-1.pngThis next box is rather new in the book community, but I love what it stands for. And this box is Magic of Diversity Book Box. I am a huge supporter of diverse books so too have a book box that is made just for that is amazing! I am not sure if this is just for YA diverse books but I know some will be featured in this box. I have yet to see how the box looks like nor an unboxing of it. But I do have high hopes for this box and what it will contain in it. But the creator Montgomery is absolutely sweet and very friendly. I am very interested to see where this box goes and start seeing pictures of how it looks.

Uppercase is another YA box or shall I say bag just for the lovers of young adult books. I like how they came up with a bag for this rather than a box like everyone else. In Uppercase you will receive a YA book that matches the theme of the month and some bookish items that either go with the book and or theme. The thing I like about Uppercase is that the bag it comes in is usable and really cute. I realize that this box is becoming very popular and getting a lot of hype around the community. I can’t wait till I purchase one of their bags but be mindful of spoilers because this bag is all over boookstagram.

This box is made all the way from the great Aussies in Australia. In this box each month you get a very special YA Chronicles bookmark each month a different color a YA book that matches the theme of the month and of course bookish items. What I love about this box is that sometimes it features a letter from the author which is always nice to have. Also they have a cute card that says what you get in your box. I love the name of this box and its meaning too it. I would love to do a review on this box but shipping is crazy expensive from all the way from Australia. But if you have the money I would suggest this highly it won’t disappoint!

Well those are the first five book subscriptions boxes I wanted to talk about! The second part will be next weeks Can We Talk About. Are you subscribe to any of the boxes I mentioned in this post? If so which month’s box has been your favorite? Also is there any book subscription boxes you would like me to talk about? I hope you all have a great weekend! Remember ❤ Always Love Your Books ❤
