Reptilicus Infernicus: 2012, Year of the Dragon by $techgnotic on deviantART

Check this out and be amazed!

Reptilicus Infernicus: 2012, Year of the Dragon by $techgnotic on deviantART

Titanium - Sia & David Guetta

Another epic song! One of the best I've heard. I can't believe this is the same Sia we save in The Voice. Awesome!!

Also Cheyenne's cover of this song is even more amazing! Her voice is unbelievable!

I'm seeing stars right now! XD

Without You - Rachel Berry (Glee)

Oh my god! I am obsessed with this song! Rachel Berry sings it much better than Usher.

I can't help linking this song with Tora! It sorta explains how she feels once Itachi leaves her. What do you think?

Book Review: Hex Hall (Hex Hall #1) by Rachel Hawkins

Read from February 21 to 24, 2012

I just read Rachel Hawkins's debut novel, "Hex Hall", and loved it! It is one of the best books I've ever read! The book was, like, super-glued to my hands! And the best parts are Sophie and Archer. Sophie's funny and sarcastic character was just so fun to read about. The Hex Hall heartthrob, Archer, is the kind of male character that makes you wanna jump into the novel for. What surprised me the most is that Archer is part of L'Occhio di Dio. That was an epic plot-twister. Oh, and also the part that Sophie is 'quarter-demon'. I can't wait to read the sequel, "Demonglass".

Here's the summary of "Hex Hall":

" Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.  
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect. 
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her."
Make sure this is one of those books stacked up in the Favourites corner of your library!

Book Review: Abandon (Abandon Trilogy #1) by Meg Cabot

Abandon (Abandon Trilogy #1) by Meg Cabot
"After the accident, 17 year old Pierce tries to start over. But even after moving to a new town and starting a new school, he still keeps showing up — always when she least expects him, but exactly when she needs him most.
 One thing she knows for certain: John Hayden may be irresistible, but he’s no angel. 
 But if Pierce lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself spending all of eternity in the one place to which she swore she’d never return . . . .
. . . his world: The Underworld."
Abandon book jacket

This book was totally wow! This book reintroduced me to the sensation of reading an epic novel that is totally unputdownable! 'Abandon' is a huge difference from Meg Cabot's comfort zone, but when I read this, I was like "Meg, what were you thinking? Writing all those teen fiction novels when you can write epic supernatural books like this?" So, just so you guys know, make sure you have this book in your library!

Hachiko: A Dog's Story

I finally had the guts to watch the whole movie and it was amazing! The most beautiful movie ever!

What makes it even sadder is that it's a true story. I actually cried watching this, especially when Hachiko was dying. That was so sad! That last part where Hachi dreams of Parker coming back was so heartbreaking!

What intensified the effect was the marvellous music. It was so emotional and tragic; best music ever! Seriously though, the guy who did it is a genius! Here's it:

If you haven't watched the movie yet, you should.

Hachiko is the most loyal dog ever!

Book Review: Wintercraft (Wintercraft #1) by Jenna Burtenshaw

Wintercraft (Wintercraft #1) by Jenna Burtenshaw
Read in February, 2012

I just finished reading 'Wintercraft' by Jenna Burtenshaw and let me tell you, it was awesome! Burtenshaw's debut novel totally pulled it off with epic flair! I was absolutely spellbound by this novel and its epicness. The plot and characters were all so original and unique. Here's the summary for you to check out:
"Ten years ago Kate Winters' parents were taken by the High Council's wardens to help with the country's war effort.
Now the wardens are back...and prisoners, including Kate's uncle Artemis, are taken south on the terrifying Night Train. Kate and her friend Edgar are hunted by a far more dangerous enemy. Silas Dane – the High Council's most feared man – recognises Kate as one of the Skilled; a rare group of people able to see through the veil between the living and the dead. His spirit was damaged by the High Council's experiments into the veil, and he's convinced that Kate can undo the damage and allow him to find peace.
The knowledge Kate needs lies within Wintercraft – a book thought to be hidden deep beneath the graveyard city of Fume. But the Night of Souls, when the veil between life and death is at its thinnest, is just days away and the High Council have their own sinister plans for Kate and Wintercraft..."

Here's the book trailer:

The trailer isn't much and personally, I don't like it much, but the book's epic! So make sure you buy this book the next time you go to a bookstore!
