It has been a fairly busy and exciting week of books for me! I am super excited about many of these titles!

Us Red Queen The Children Act

Us by David Nichols; There are not enough words to describe HOW EXCITED I am for this book! I was one of twelve lucky people to get the book a week before release (and it’s signed!) and I know that I will be diving into this as my next read. I have been waiting SO LONG.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard; I found out about this book this week and requested it straight away because it sounds AMAZING. I am very much looking forward to reading this one!

Children Act by Ian McEwan; Ian writes the most beautiful prose and so I’m really looking forward to reading this new one of his and just falling in love with his writing again. Already heard that it is a good one!

Unspoken These Days Are Ours Code Red Lipstick

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan; After seeing Sarah at an author event and seeing how EXCITED my friends were about the final book, I was excited when this book came into the library and knew I had to take it out straight away. Really looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about!

These Days Are Ours by Michelle Haimoff; Admittedly I know nothing about this book but I LOVED the cover with the instagram style photos and the summary sounded intriguing so I thought I’d see what it’s like. Have you read it?

Code Red Lipstick by Sarah Sky; Heard a lot of good things about this one and so am looking forward to diving into it and seeing what it is all about.

Girl With A White Dog Adorned This Is Your Afterlife

Girl with a White Dog by Anne Booth; Another book that I have heard amazing things about from multiple sources so I finally decided to check it out myself and see what all the fuss is about!

Cloven by Georgeann Swiger; Obviously not the cover above (that’s the first book in the series!) I’m super looking forward to reading this one as I really liked the first book in the series. This is also the book of my first true client which is super exciting!

This is Your Afterlife by Vanessa Barneveld; Saw this on Netgalley and couldn’t resist requesting it. I mean… ghosts… is like… my codeword. Really intrigued about this one and cannot wait to see if I like it!


Currently Reading

I read a few books at a time so I have decided that I want to showcase them a little on the blog and so from now on I thought I would tell you all what I’m currently reading (on Saturday/Sunday!)

This week I am currently reading;

Whispering Skull Small Eternities BetterThanPerfect Cover You Don't Know Me

My New Adventure

Posted on 27 September, 2014 by Faye (Daydreaming_Star) - 1 Comment

Hello All!
Today I am posting to share some rather exciting news!
On Monday I officially released my new website; fayerogers.co.uk. This website is for my new adventure. I have become a freelance online PR where I will help authors sort out all their PR needs from new authors to experienced authors.

I’m really excited about this new thing in my life and really looking forward to seeing where it goes (I’m also nervous but that’s normal, right?). So I just wanted to share this news with you for this reason but also because it is highly likely that it is going to change my blog and blogging pattern.

Time is a frustrating monster, isn’t it?

Needless to say, with my new job, it is going to be difficult to always have the time to blog. To counter this I’m going to try and start scheduling WAY in advance again but I can’t keep any promises on that front – because I’ve never managed it before!

That being said, posts will likely be sporadic. I’m going to try and stick to a schedule of at least two posts a week, but we’ll just have to wait and see!

Another reason for posting is to ask all the lovely bloggers who follow me, would you like to help me out? If yes, head over to this post and sign up, maybe?

That’s everything from me today.

See you later!

Today I am thrilled to share with you all the cover of Cora Carmack’s new novel, Inspire! Find out more about the book and Cora below!


We are thrilled to bring you the cover for Cora Carmack’s INSPIRE!

The cover was designed by VLC Productions.

Add INSPIRE on Goodreads


About INSPIRE:

Kalliope lives with one purpose.

To inspire.

As an immortal muse, she doesn’t have any other choice. It’s part of how she was made. Musicians, artists, actors—they use her to advance their art, and she uses them to survive. She moves from one artist to the next, never staying long enough to get attached. But all she wants is a different life— a normal one. She’s spent thousands of years living lie after lie, and now she’s ready for something real.

Sweet, sexy, and steady, Wilder Bell feels more real than anything else in her long existence. And most importantly… he’s not an artist. He doesn’t want her for her ability. But she can’t turn off the way she influences people, not even to save a man she might love. Because in small doses, she can help make something beautiful, but her ability has just as much capacity to destroy as it does to create. The longer she stays, the more obsessed Wilder will become. It’s happened before, and it never turns out well for
the mortal.

Her presence may inspire genius.

But it breeds madness, too.


HeadshotAbout Cora Carmack:

Cora Carmack is a twenty-something writer who likes to write about twenty-something characters.

She’s done a multitude of things in her life– boring jobs (like working retail), Fun jobs (like working in a theatre), stressful jobs (like teaching), and dream jobs (like writing). She enjoys placing her characters in the most awkward situations possible, and then trying to help them get a boyfriend out of it. Awkward people need love, too. Her first book, LOSING IT, was a New York Times and USA Today bestseller.

Film Review; Pride (2014)

Posted on 24 September, 2014 by Faye (Daydreaming_Star) - 1 Comment

PrideDirector(s): Matthew Warchus
Writer(s): Stephen Beresford
Main Cast: Dominic West, Imelda Staunton, Bill Nighy
Production Company: Calamity Films
Country: UK
Release Date: 12th September 2014
Source:: Cinema
More Info: IMDB

Summary:
Its the summer of 1984 Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support.

But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.


Sometimes It

After watching the trailer for Pride, I was instantly intrigued. Then, after initial reports that the film was really good, I was even more amped to watch it. I will admit though that I was also a little worried about the film and whether or not it would be the right film for me, but fortunately it turned out that it definitely was. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I already have plans to watch it again. Pride is a film that I would, quite simply, highly recommend.

Only Takes

In all honesty, I didn’t know much about how the LGBT community helped the miners during their strike so I can’t comment on the factual accuracy of the film but I really enjoyed the plot of this film. I loved the battle that all the characters overcame and how much heart and warmth came through. It was a moving, compelling, and just brilliant film that was incredibly entertaining. What made this film for me was the vast array of characters. Every one had a different personality and all were incredibly easy to fall in love with. Watching their journey was spectacular.

A Few To

The best thing, aside from the characters, about this film was the excellent filmmaking. This film shows how it is possible to make fantastic films. It is the perfect example of how powerful British films can be, and in my opinion, how films should be. The cast andd crew have done a terrific job with this film from an emotional and heart-warming script, to perfect casting, and finally to excellent editing that really shows the messages the film was trying to get across. I love films like this and Pride reminded me of other brilliant British films like This Is England and Broken.

Make A Change

If you haven’t guessed it yet, I loved Pride. It was a film that moved me in many ways and made me feel lots of different emotions. Most importantly though, I left the cinema feeling happy and proud of my country and how far we have come. This film is both educational and entertaining which is just the best thing to occur in films. This film triumphs all American blockbuster’s in my opinion because it is real and grounded. I really would highly recommend this film as it is a masterpiece and a film that really should not be missed. So, what are you waiting for? Go show your PRIDE.

top ten tuesday2
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given and this weeks topic is top ten books on your fall TBR


As per usual, these books are not in any particular order and even though I REALLY want to read them all, I probably won’t have them all read by the end of Fall but there we go…

Heir of Fire Falling Into Place Dear Daughter

Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas; Really, REALLY need to read this one and stop being put off by emotions and its size!

Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang; I’ve been wanting to read this one since I heard about it, and got a copy of it, at BEA in May. I WILL read it soon!

Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little; This one just sounds so intriguing and as a library book needs to be returned soon, so…

The Things I'd Miss Starring Kitty The cure for Dreaming Before I Go To Sleep

Things I’d Miss by Andrew Clover; Another library book that just sounds so intriguing and interesting and I really want to read it.

Starring Kitty by Keris Stainton; I have heard a great many things about this book and I really want to see what all the fuss is about. Plus Keris is lovely and it’s an LGBT book. I have to read this soon.

The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters; I LOVED Cat’s first book with a passion so I cannot wait to dive into this one. I’m really hoping it’s just as amazing!

Before I Go To Sleep by S. J. Watson; Having now watched and loved the film, I am very intrigued about the book and to see what all the simularities and differences were!

The Walled City The Girl Who Never Was The Iron Trial

The Walled City by Ryan Graudin; Really intrigued about this one. It sounds super exciting. So it’s one that I actually want to try and read before release date. Let’s see, shall we?

The Girl Who Never Was by Skylar Dorset; Another one that I picked up at BEA and have been intrigued about ever since! Hope to actually read this one in the next month!

The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare; There is a lot of upset about this book but I’m definitely interested enough to know what I’ll think of the book!


So I’m hoping to read all of those books very soon! Which do you think I should start with?

What about you? What is at the top of your fall TBR?

Book Review; Breakable by Tammara Webber (+ Giveaway!)

Posted on 20 September, 2014 by Faye (Daydreaming_Star) - No Comments

BreakableAuthor: Tammara Webber
Publisher: Penguin
Published: 7th June 2014
Pages: 436
Format: Paperback
Source:: Review Copy
Add It: Goodreads, Amazon UK, TBD

Summary:
He was lost and alone. Then he found her.
And the future seemed more fragile than ever.

As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise — until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.

All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy…

As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.


When You’ve

Easy was one of the first NA books that I read and is one of the reasons I fell in love with NA. It was a story that completely blew me away so when I heard Tammara Webber was doing a companion novel, I was both excited and nervous. I was worried that Breakable wouldn’t live up to the hype of the first book and also worried that I just wouldn’t like it. But I also ached to hear Lucas’ story so I knew that I would read it regardless. And boy am I glad that I did! Breakable is a terrific novel that is able to stand on its own. It isn’t simply Easy told from Lucas’ side, but an entirely new story – with small similarities from Easy of course – and I thought this was the best way to deal with this story.

Been Breaking

Breakable, as mentioned above, was Lucas’ story but what really worked is that the story was split between his days before university and his days during it. This occurred throughout the book in a dual narrative way that I really enjoyed. As someone who can lose focus easily, this really helped to keep my attention on the page and is one of the reasons that I continued reading this book. I love that this style of writing made it that much easier to get a rounded picture of Lucas. It was the perfect way to get to know him and follow his journey.

For Years

In case you missed it, I adore Lucas but I have to admit that in this book, Landon was my favourite character. I loved how much he dealt with and how he got through it all. It was easy to love him because he was fragile while also being incredibly strong. (Translation: he was a human.) I really enjoyed finding out more about Landon and following his life story on the page. I think I enjoyed reading about him so much because he was also a new addition to the Easy story. He felt fresh and new, and I just really loved that. I also feel he is the perfect character to help you know Lucas better. It was a great way to see a new side to the story.

It’s Not Easy

Another reason this book was very enjoyable was due to the writing style. Once again Tammara Webber managed to pull me into the story and really love everything about it. Tammara has a very easy-to-read style that sucks you into the story and makes you completely forget about everything around you. She is also someone who is able to evoke emotions in you that go incredibly deep. She truly makes you connect with the story and characters and I think that she is incredibly talented. I cannot wait to read more of her work, be it NA or YA.

Being Fixed

Needless to say, I found this book exceptionally entertaining. It was emotional, compelling, and full of heart. Once more Tammara Webber has dealt with a very deep and dark topic in a sensitive and enlightening way. What I will say is that if you enjoy contemporary books that are rich, deep, dark, and powerful but also lovely, somewhat light and fun, then you should give this book a try, even if you haven’t read Easy. Breakable is a remarkable book that is simply stunning and should be read time and time again. It is simply a masterpiece that you will fall in love with.

five stars

** I received this copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. **

But Wait!

The ever fantastic and lovely Tammara Webber is giving away a signed copy of Easy and a signed copy of Breakable to one of my lucky followers!

PLEASE NOTE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS FOR UK, AUZ and NZ PARTICIPANTS ONLY

Book & Movie Review; If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Posted on 17 September, 2014 by Faye (Daydreaming_Star) - 2 Comments

Author: Gayle Forman
Publisher: Random House
Published: 4th Sept 2014
Pages: 240
Format: Paperback
Source:: Library
Add It: Goodreads, Amazon UK, TBD

Summary:
‘Just listen,’ Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel. I open my eyes wide now. I sit up as much as I can. And I listen.

Stay,’ he says.

Everybody has to make choices.

Some might break you.

For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they’re all about a future full of music and love, a future that’s brimming with hope.

But life can change in an instant.

A cold February morning . . . a snowy road . . . and suddenly all of Mia’s choices are gone. Except one.

As alone as she’ll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all.

Gripping, heartrending and ultimately life-affirming, If I Stay will make you appreciate all that you have, all that you’ve lost – and all that might be.


It Started With

If I Stay is a book that many people have told me to read in the past but one that never got picked up. When the film was announced, I decided to wait until after I watched it before I finally read the book. Thus this review comes from the perspective of someone who saw the film and then read the book. I can now say that I actually preferred the film to the book. (WHAT?) I feel that the film perfected the book in the best way.

A Book

I fell into the story quickly when I started reading the book. Whether this was due to the voice or because of the film, but either way, it worked for me. The book, in my opinion, was more self-reflective than the film. In it Mia reflects on her life and what she has to live for. Which did make for a really lovely and moving story but I didn’t feel as emotional reading the book as I did watching the film. I would still recommend the book but I just felt it fell a little short for me.

Then A Movie

The film, on the other hand, was a lot more humourous than the book. Within minutes you are shown Mia’s eccentric and fun family and it’s hard not to love them. This, for me, meant the film packed the emotional punch harder (but also, this could just be because I watched it first.) I also preferred how the film dealt with the story. It was still Mia’s journey but it was also about the others too, which I liked. There were also a few scenes in the film that weren’t in the book that I just truly loved.

Here It Ends

Essentially I feel that this story was better suited for visual media over written word. While the book was well-written, emotional and gripping, the film made everything feel more together and whole. I really enjoyed that the film brought a fun aspect to the story that didn’t come across so well in the book. But, of course, I can’t help but wonder if things would be different if I’d read the book first!

What did you think about the book/movie? Did you read first? Have you yet to read? Have you yet to watch? Tell me all!

Top Ten Tuesday; Authors I Should Read More Of.

Posted on 16 September, 2014 by Faye (Daydreaming_Star) - 16 Comments

top ten tuesday2

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given and this weeks topic is Top Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More>/strong>


In no particular order;

Cinder Vicious2 Shadow and Bone

Marissa Meyer; I read Cinder in February 2012, it is now September 2014 and I have yet to read another book of hers despite LOVING Cinder. I must change this.

Victoria Schwab; I fell in love with Victoria while reading Vicious but even though I own The Archived and The Unbound, I have yet to read either of them!

Leigh Bardugo; A new gem for me. I have only recently finished (and loved) Shadow and Bone, but I really need to read the final two books in the trilogy before I forget the story too much!

Vampire Academy Unearthly Touch of Power Croak

Richelle Mead; I got so addicted to Vampire Academy that before I had even finished the book, I’d ordered the next two books in the series. Have I read them yet? Of course not!

Cynthia Hand; Unearthly was one of the first books I read after starting my blog and I fell head over heels in love with it! Yet I have not moved to her next book yet, have I?

Maria V. Snyder; When I first head about Touch of Power, I was determined to read it. Then I loved it so much I bought all of Maria’s other books (bar one), and they all sit unread on the shelf.

Gina Damico; I never expected to love Croak as much as I did but I found it to be a truly remarkable title. I have since acquired the next two books in the trilogy and yet they just stare at me unread. I think they judge me.

ScarletUS.indd Hereafter Falling To Ash

A. C. Gaughen; I don’t think you quite understand how much I LOVED Scarlet. I wanted to be in the book. I thought about it all the time. It was incredible. It took me a LONG time to get my hands on the second book and yet still it sits waiting to be read. I am ashamed of myself.

Tara Hudson; Hereafter is my IDEAL story. It has ghosts. It has forbidden love. It has amazing writing and a fascinating plot. I loved it from the get go and I couldn’t wait to get my grubby hands on the sequel. And yet…

Karen Mahoney; I loved Falling to Ash SO MUCH that I borrowed The Iron Queen from a friend just to read Karen’s writing ALL OVER AGAIN. I have kept on to that borrowed book for over a year now. Yes, I am also a BAD FRIEND.

But What About You? What Authors Have You Only Read One Book Of But Want To Read More Of? Which Author Above Should I Start With?

Celebration Time! [Blogoversary!]

Posted on 15 September, 2014 by Faye (Daydreaming_Star) - 13 Comments

Hey Guys!
Today is a very special day. It’s A Daydreamer’s Thoughts‘ third birthday!
*throws confetti*

It still boggles my mind a little that three years ago today I hit that little publish button on my very first post on this blog.
My life has changed dramatically in the last three years, and a lot of it is because of this blog. And that is insane.

I’ve been pondering what I should do to celebrate this occasion for a few weeks now and to be honest, I’m still not exactly sure how to. The reason for this is because blogging has kind of become a part of me now so celebrating seems a little odd.
[I also feel weird about celebrating my birthday so it does make a little sense!]

So, in the end, I have decided to just tell you all that the blog has now turned three and to throw some confetti and to offer out virtual cake! Yay!

And also to just say THANK YOU for sticking with me and following this blog and commenting and tweeting with me and just for generally making this blog become an ingrained part of my life. Without you, I probably wouldn’t have made it this long.

I wish that I could thank you all with a gift of some kind but unfortunately that isn’t possible. So instead, I will just thank you with these words. And hope that you’ll stick with me for the next three years!

Until next time, folks. *waves and bows*
