#36: The Secret of Ella and Micha - Jessica Sorensen (With Giveaway)

(Affiliate link)


A rule-breaker with a fiery attitude, Ella always wore her heart on her sleeve. Then she left everything behind to go to college, where she transformed into someone who follows the rules, keeps everything together, and hides all her problems. Now it's summer break and she has nowhere else to go but home. But once there, Ella fears that everything she's worked so hard to bury might resurface-especially with Micha living right next door.

Smart, sexy, and confident, Micha can get under Ella's skin like no one else. He knows everything about her, including her darkest secrets. If he tries to tempt the old Ella to return, he will be impossible to resist. But what Ella doesn't realize is that when she left, she took a piece of Micha's heart with her. Now he's determined to win back the girl he lost, no matter what it takes.




Author Bio:
The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jessica Sorensen, lives with her husband and three kids in the snowy mountains of Wyoming. When she's not writing, she spends her time reading and hanging out with her family.



Review:
This is an amazing love story with so many bumps and bruises that it took years to develop.
I couldn't get enough of the chemistry between Ella and Micha. The passion is pretty intense to read. Separately, you can't help but invest emotion in them as you learn more about them and their lives.
The flow of the writing is so easy to read, that you end up devouring it pretty quick. The writing has beautiful phrasing and you fall right into it.
I really enjoyed it all around and highly anticipate the next book. I just can't wait to see what else happens.

Disneynature Wings Of Life on BluRay April 16


LIFE BLOOMS THIS SPRING WITH DISNEYNATURE


“WINGS OF LIFE” LANDS ON BLU-RAY® COMBO PACK,
DIGITAL AND ON DEMAND APRIL 16, 2013,
IN TIME FOR EARTH DAY


BURBANK, Calif. (March 8, 2013) — Spring is in the air—literally—as Disneynature prepares to unveil “Wings of Life,” a spectacular, closer-than-close, high-definition look at the intricate world of butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and bats, and their life-sustaining collaboration with flowers. Directed by Louie Schwartzberg (“America’s Heart & Soul”) and narrated by Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep, “Wings of Life” will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital and On Demand on April 16, 2013—just in time for Earth Day.

“In the chaos and craziness of our day-to-day lives, few of us stop to consider what’s happening behind the scenes in nature that makes our lives possible,” said Streep. “This film is a stunning adventure that literally takes flight alongside all kinds of winged creatures—butterflies, bees and bats—each working hard to pollinate our planet.”

Said Schwartzberg, “For me, the joy of doing this film is to be able to explore worlds that humans can’t easily experience—bats sipping nectar in the middle of the desert at night, orchid bees expertly manipulated by a bucket orchid, exotic hummingbirds flying like airborne dancers, and a clustering monarch colony with millions of butterflies. I hope to share the spectacle of nature and to spark in others the sense of wonder I have about the natural world.”

Employing multiple cameras, both time-lapse and high-speed cinematography and extraordinary patience (while nature took its time unfolding), filmmakers shot on location in more than a dozen areas, ranging from the El Rosario Preserve in Michoacán, Mexico, to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument Park in Arizona. “Wings of Life” features extraordinary imagery shot with digital cameras—one capable of frame rates of up to 1500 frames per second, and the use of a pinhole lens, which allowed the

cameraman to get within millimeters of an insect subject while retaining a clear view of the background. The resulting imagery—intimate and breathtaking—is brought to life for audiences through spectacular high-definition picture and sound quality.

To celebrate the debut of “Wings of Life,” Disneynature has made a contribution to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF) to protect pollinators worldwide. The DWCF has already supported more than 20 projects across North America focused on protecting pollinators and their habitats. Grants have helped conservationists save endangered butterflies, expand habitat for honeybees and educate children about the importance of pollinators and how they can help protect them.

The “Wings of Life” Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a sneak peek at Disneynature’s 2014 big-screen adventure “Bears.” In an epic story of breathtaking scale set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, the film, which is currently in production, follows two mother grizzly bears as they impart life lessons to their impressionable young cubs.

ABOUT THE MOVIE:
From Disneynature, the studio that brought you Earth, Oceans, African Cats and Chimpanzee, comes Wings of Life — a stunning adventure full of intrigue, drama and mesmerizing beauty. Narrated by Meryl Streep, this intimate and unprecedented look at butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, bats and flowers is a celebration of life, as a third of the world’s food supply depends on these incredible — and increasingly threatened — creatures.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, Wings of Life utilizes riveting high-speed, time lapse and macro filmmaking to showcase in spectacular detail these unsung heroes of our planet.

Disneynature was launched in April 2008. Its mission is to bring the world’s top nature filmmakers together to share a wide variety of wildlife stories on the big screen in order to engage, inspire and educate theatrical audiences everywhere. Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife filmmaking, producing 13 True-Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, which earned eight Academy Awards®. The first four Disneynature films, “Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee,” are four of the top five highest overall grossing feature-length nature films to date, with “Chimpanzee” garnering a record-breaking opening weekend for the genre. Disney’s commitment to conservation is a key pillar of the label and Disneynature films empower the audience to help make a difference. Through donations tied to opening-week attendance for all four films, Disneynature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, has planted three million trees in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, established 40,000 acres of marine protected area in The Bahamas, protected 65,000 acres of savanna in Kenya, protected 129,236 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat, educated 60,000 school children about chimpanzee conservation and cared for chimpanzees.

Review:
Great teachings for parents!
So many wonderful morals, value and core beliefs are taught from birth, so they are instilled in our children to create happier and healthier kids. We teach our kids right from wrong, right from the earliest moments of their lives. So why not humility, love, empathy, compassion? They are morals we want our kids to have but sometimes start too late at teaching them or enforcing them.
The one thing I have really taken from the book, with my oldest about to turn 18, is I am doing something right. From the teachings in the book, you learn sticking to your guns is a huge part of making sure your children learn. It has been something I had issues with initially, those cute faces got to me every time, but it has stopped and I learned to stick to my guns. Since that time, my kids are not so quick to lip off or behave in an un-approving manner. They know I will not step down from decision, and have taught them there is good and bad consequences to every choice. It helps them see the bigger picture in the end.
So I think not only new parents, but parents of older children can benefit from reading this book. Our kids don't come with manuals, but books like this one sure help get through some of those tougher moments, and with our morality in tact.

Blasting About: Blue Hearts of Mars (With Giveaway)


Blue Hearts of Mars by Nicole Grotepas


Retta Heikkinen knows the unspoken rule of society: love between androids and humans is forbidden. A simple enough edict until Hemingway Koskinen spends an evening charming her with his intense gaze, bewitching smile, and sparkling conversation that hints at so much more than the usual obsessions of high school boys. Rules were meant to be cast aside, especially when love beckons.

If only it were as simple as being in love.

Trouble is brewing, not just for Hemingway--for all androids. Secrets have been kept, lies propagated, and Retta soon discovers that a frightening future awaits thousands of androids if she doesn’t do something to stop it. Worse yet, she will lose the one love she’s ever endangered herself for: Hemingway.



Praise

"Nothing like I've read before. A true original story! Everything is so well described. Now if they could make a follow up book and movie, that would be great!" ~Mrs. Z (Amazon)

"I was addicted to this book from the beginning. Life on Mars was very real and not at all a sci fi world I didn't understand . . . I found myself rooting for Retta and Hemingway from the very beginning. Easy reading, couldn't put it down and had it read in a weekend. Waiting for a sequel!" ~TNielsen (Amazon)

"The ending of this book is exceptional. While it was different from what I imagined, the way the author brought in a shocking revelation was amazing. I probably reread the last chapter 3 times letting it sink in and the meaning behind it. It was truly beautiful . . . I would love to see more of Retta and Hemingway!" ~Kat Meyer, (Goodreads)

"I love how the author populated Mars . . . so descriptive and comprehensive . . . I could clearly picture everything as if I was seeing the movie &/or was along for the ride. . . . Retta, the main character, is strong, opinionated, and a great champion for her cause." ~Megan (Amazon)

"I had been in the worst reading slump ever and came across this on Goodreads and thought I'd give it a try. Well, I was pleasantly surprised on how funny and exciting and mysterious it was . . . Mei, Retta's bff, had me laughing out loud quite a bit as well as Retta herself. I'd definitely hang out with those two." ~Deanneluvbooks (Goodreads)

I was buttoning the collar of my uniform when the helicopter lowered into the courtyard, kicking up a cloud of dust and loose debris. A tall man in a dark suit emerged from the cockpit, his silver hair motionless in the wind brought down by the spinning rotors. He hesitated before descending the stairs, regarding the writhing grass and the old structure's trembling rooftops as if his presence alone had caused the disturbance.

Giveaway & Guest Post: The Rich Girls - Honey B

California has never had a female governor. Garnishing the backing of the wealthiest women in California, Morgan convinces Brooks Kennedy to run for governor.

Morgan's campaign strategy is non-traditional. She convinces the team to sexually blackmail each of Brooks' opponents. They will do whatever it takes to get videos, pictures, even sperm DNA from Brooks' opponents. One-by-one each candidate is forced to withdraw from the governor's race. 

All goes according to plan until someone attempts to kill Brooks. With so many enemies, Brooks has no idea who wants her dead. Her enemy is closer than she imagines. 

When a secret is revealed, Morgan feels betrayed and will stop at nothing to get revenge. 






#1 Mistake Women Make When Dating by Honey B

Women fall in love with men that don’t love them.

Even female dogs don’t have that degree of loyalty. A man can degrade, disown, defame, deface, disrespect, and dehumanize a woman and some women will relentlessly chase that man crying, “Please don’t go. I love you.” Only a fool would flush a piece of poo, look into the toilet, and say, “Come back.” If he doesn’t love or want you, let him go.

Too many women view themselves as sex objects believing the way to a man’s heart is through her vagina. This is why some women allow a man to enter their paradise before she knows his middle name.

There are men that know they are not the best. They lack character, refuse to commitment, and some don’t have common sense. They in designer clothes, fine jewelry, and luxury cars to attract beautiful women they simply want to sex then it’s on to the next.

What’s missing for both? True love. A woman can’t miss what she’s never had. A man can’t give what he doesn’t possess. Before the average woman knows if he’s a loser or serial killer, she’s already planning their future together. In the process of planning, she overlooks her needs. That’s her mistake, not his.

I recommend women have fun dating. Don’t take yourself off the market until you know he’s the one. Remember, a man with his hand out needs to put his penis in it.

Best advice: Love yourself first.
