Book haul for jan 12 - jan 18

Last year was a very productive in reading year for me. I read 150 books in 50 weeks. I read most of them in my Kindle paperwhite (I love it!) but I also read some paperbacks. Too bad the Kindle doesn't include the paper fragance...

During the last months of the year I decided to write reviews for the books I was going to read from than moment on and later came the idea of creating this blog. I also became more active in GoodReads groups and met some great webs like NetGalley when I can receive Advanced Reader Copies (ARC's) to, well, read the books a little sooner than everyone else.
My bad, I asked and received more books I could handle to read in a time frame. I'm still trying to finish those books. I don't have to but I feel like I have to read them. I mean, these authors trusted me with their work for free; the less I can do is find some time to read their books and review them.

So, one of my goals for the new year is organize my reading. I love to close my eyes and pick up a random book to read but I also have a sort of OCD. So, making a calendar for my reading doesn't sound like a crazy idea -to my ears at least.

For this week (Jan 12th - Jan 18th) I've chosen 3 books.
1. Surrendering (Regent Vampire Lords, #1) 
“It’s best if we just keep this casual, Dev.”To feisty, relationship phobic Kate Martin’s utter surprise, she isn’t automatically dismissed as a crackpot when she finally plucks up courage to walk into a police station, revealing what she’s seen in her dreams. But instead of making a simple statement and returning to her nice, quiet life, she finds herself the center of attention from both a psychotic vampire and the ‘investigative specialist’ who would die in order to protect her.“You’re anything but casual, Kate. I want you and I always get what I want.”Young women are disappearing across the country and Devon, Regent Vampire Lord of the Midwest, knows his centuries old archenemy has finally resurfaced. A break in his fruitless search is provided by the discovery of a woman who can not only see the missing in her dreams, but who ends up being his Moira, his Destiny. And she couldn’t have stepped into his world at a more inopportune time, for she is now the prime target for his nemesis.Protecting her heart would prove to be her biggest challenge.Devon may be the sexiest, most sinfully erotic man she’s ever met, and he stirs passion in her like no one else before, but he’s an entanglement Kate does not want or need. While it becomes impossible to deny their mutual desire, once the case is solved and the missing women are found, Kate fully intends to return to her boring life, alone.At least that’s what she thinks.
I'm already reading this one ;)

2. Quédate (La chica de servicio 2.5)
This one came out a few weeks ago but I've decided I was going to wait for book #3 so I'll read both of them. That way I reduce the risk of finding a a cliffhanger and then losing my nails while waiting for the next book. This one is in Spanish.
Tras la marcha de Gisele, Matt trata de hacer frente a su problema y se somete al duro tratamiento de su enfermedad. No quiere negar lo evidente y sabe que lo único que lo mantiene lleno de esperanza es la promesa que ella le hizo antes de partir.
A pesar de la distancia que los separa, se siguen amando con la misma intensidad. Sin embargo, Gisele tomará una decisión justo antes de su vuelta que hará que la relación dé un giro inesperado que cambiará el rumbo de su historia de amor.
Descubre de la mano de Matt Campbell qué es lo que marcará un antes y un después en la trilogía «La chica de servicio».
Update 15/01/2015: finished last night.

3. Y ríndete (La chica de servicio 3)
I haven't even read the synopsis I'm putting here below. I just need this book to come out to finally know what happens to Matt and Gisele. This one is also in Spanish. Publication date is set for January 15!
Convencida de que es lo mejor para ambos, Gisele decide romper la promesa que le hizo a Matt y retrasa su regreso. La separación será dura para ella, sin embargo, lo será mucho más para él, ya que esperaba desesperadamente su vuelta para recibir su apoyo durante el proceso de su enfermedad.
Una vez en casa, Gisele se encuentra con un Matt muy diferente del que se desvivía por amarla. Su actitud es seca y distante, y no tiene intención de ponérselo fácil cuando ella decide recuperarlo. Se sintió decepcionado cuando lo abandonó y se niega a aceptarla de nuevo en su vida.
Sin embargo, la tensión sexual entre ambos no ha cambiado, y cuando la pasión estalla, logran acercar posturas. Dudas, resentimientos y un intenso amor los encadena... ¿Podrán olvidar el daño que se han hecho y disfrutar de la relación que siempre han anhelado?
Descubre el desenlace de la desgarradora historia de amor entre Matt Campbell  y Gisele Stone.  
Y ríndete
