So, I'd like to make something clear.. Some of you might think why I named my blog "Once upon a December". Of course my favorite fairytale is Anastasia's and Dima's (you know the animation) in which Anya happens to be a real historical figure , the daughter of Nikolai Romanov. Anyway, there's a song in this movie called "Once upon a December" which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! This is the first and the main reason. What's more, I was born on December and it's also my favorite month and season (winter aaaugh! I love it ) along with Halloween , but anyway...:P Finally, I really hope I could travel to Russia someday, I like the culture and the language (I'm taking up Russian btw) and you know... It's one of my dreams-to-come-true-list:P So, I guess I'm over. You got bored reading this , I know!
I just wanted to tell you!
Aaaugh!!!!! I love you, Dima!!!!!!
I'm currently reading "Something like Normal" by Trish Doller, a story about a young marine and his attempts to get back on his feet and live something like normal, after Afganistan. It's interesting and expect a review soon...

5 STARS- DESERVED IT-FAVORITE SERIES-READ THIS DAMN BOOK-PERFECT YA!!!
L.J Smith is one of my favorite YA authors. She proved it again with the Secret Circle series. I believe the VD are nothing compare to the SC.
Well, let me start with the final It had EVERYTHING: suspence, terror, romance (well I wanted dome more between Adam and Cassie:P), emotions... The writing was as always stimulating, the atmosphere magical and mythical. I felt like being in the Middle Times!
The characters were again amazing- so much emotions from Cassie and Adam, but I really fell for Nick, too!- Diana was sweet , caring and selfless, Faye as always dangerous but smart... I really enjoyed this book, I was gasping for some air while I was DEVOURING this book. You heard me...I DEVOURED IT!
The series are worth reading. It's like watching a freaking tv-serie! (No, I won't comment for the tv-series, there's NOTHING alike these books) It's definetely a MUST on your library!
Some drawbacks now: I think L.J Smith's books (VD and SC) are too YA for me. She targets in sixteen year-old. For example, I wanted more romance and more pages...:P LOL! Also, I'd love if she wrote more about their inner world.. It was just something I missed.
I vote for a new novel!!! Something more!! NOT from a ghost author, though! Finally, I believe Diana was too good... I don't know if I'd left my boyfriend (for years) to a new girl... :/
Overall, read this series!!!! Forget about the tv-series it's the product of the next book of a ghost author.
Just TAKE THE BOOKS and forget about the show!
3 STARS- WENT EASY ON THIS BOOK, I'M WONDERING IF IT WAS A WATE OF TIME:/
I recieved an ebook copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
Okay...This book was nothing like other ESP books I've read. It was a flat story, with no surprises and it didn't thriled me. I felt obligated to finish this. After some chapters, I kinda liked it.. but that was it. The plot was less interesting than I thought. The characters were nice... The setting captured my mind though; sometimes (not often) I was inside the book, because of this atmosphere. The writing was simple and that's the main reason , I read it (somehow) pleasantly.
This book didn't work for me as I thought it will be. I don't know, I'm just disappointed about this book. I wanted it to be a BADASS! But, I guess, everyone has different tastes.
However, I might read some other books from Juba as well, I liked her writing style a lot (this is the reason I give this book 3 stars).

And expect my review for the last one... (same as the Strange Angels, I'll write a review when I finish the Secret Circle trilogy).
I got "Dark Before Dawn" in exchange for an honest review. This is the description of the books from www.goodreads.com
...."When teen psychic Dawn Christian gets involved with a fortuneteller mentor and two girls who share her mysterious talents, she finally belongs after years of being a misfit. When she learns her new friends may be tied to freak accidents in town, Dawn has an important choice to make - continue developing the talent that makes her special or challenge the only people who have ever accepted her. This novel is aimed at young adults, and at adults who enjoy paranormal YA such as the Twilight series, House of Night, and The Vampire Diaries series, Meg Cabot’s The Mediator series, or Lois Duncan books..."
And dam daram dam daram....... After my request to Monica La Porta, I got an ebook copy of The Priest...! (happy face*) I'll try to start this one this weekend... I've got my studies though and it's nearly impossible:/
