Obsidian Book Trailer

If there is one alien that can reduce to a drooling, stuttering fan-girling idiot, it is Daemon Black. Sexy, charming and drop-dead gorgeous, Daemon is made to steal hearts. And the hot Pepe Toth did a perfect job of playing Daemon in trailer. I love the chemistry between him and Sztella (of course, they are engaged, duh) which did total justice to Daemon and Katy's chemistry.

So anyway, here is the trailer. Though I would have liked if it had been longer and had more focus on the story.

Holy hot chemistry, Batman! Left you breathless, huh?

Waiting on Wednesday (#2)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

This week's selection is Touching the Surface by Kimberly Sabatini which releases on October 30, 2012 by Simon Pulse.

Goodreads Description: Life altering mistakes are meant to alter lives…

When Elliot dies for the third time, she knows this is her last shot. There are no fourth-timers in this afterlife, so one more chance is all she has to get things right. But before she can move on to her next life, Elliot will be forced to face her past and delve into the painful memories she’d rather keep buried. Memories of people she’s hurt, people she’s betrayed… and people she’s killed. 

As she pieces together the mistakes of her past, Elliot must earn the forgiveness of her best friend and reveal the truth about herself to the two boys she loves…even if it means losing them both forever.


First of all, what a gorgeous and lovely cover! I've been crushing over it ever since I saw it.  The colors are so beautiful and every single thing on the cover complements other things so well. 

As for the story, I'm a total sucker for paranormal stories dealing with death and redemption. Touching the Surface is one of my most anticipated reads of 2012 and I'm pretty sure it'll stand upto my expectations.

So what book are you 'waiting on' this week?

Manga Crush (#1)

Manga Crush is brand new meme hosted by Nobonita @ Daydreaming Bookworm. It is a weekly meme hosted here,where you rant about the manga character on whom you have developed a crush.

This week I'm crushing on (like every other day) Usui Takumi from Kaichou wa Maid-sama!. As Ayuzawa Misaki calls him - "A mysterious perverted alien, from Planet Pheromones".

About the manga (Don't tell her but I stole the info from Nobonita's post. If you do, I'll know and then it'd be all katanas and bloodshed):

Title: Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
Year of release: 2005
Status: Ongoing
Author: Fujiwara Hiro
Artist: Fujiwara Hiro
Genre: Comedy, Drama,Romance,Shoujo
Blurb: Seika High School, once an all-boys school notorious for its wild students and for generally being a terrifying place for girls, has recently become a co-ed school. With the female population still a minority and living in fear of the over-the-top antics of the males, Misaki Ayuzawa takes it into her own hands to reform the school and allow the girls to feel safe in the rough environment. Training, studying, and even becoming the first female student council president of the school, Misaki has gained a reputation among the male students body as an uptight, boy-hating dictator and as a shining hope for the teachers and fellow female students. However, despite her tough-as-nails appearance, she secretly works part-time at a maid café in order to support her family. Unfortunately, her hard-earned reputation is threatened when the popular, attractive, and somewhat impassive Takumi Usui takes an interest in her after discovering her in a maid uniform after school.


*USUI TAKUMI* Sexiest Anime Man of 2010

Usui Takumi is an extremely popular and ladies' man at his school, Seika High. Usui has no interest in girls, until Misaki Ayuzawa catches his eyes. Strong, independent, bold, unmovable and a man-hater, Misaki turns down his advances at every turn possible. But Usui knows her secret and sometimes, maybe the helper needs saving herself.

Note: It's always like that - hot guy saving the feminist girl - but this manga people keep it original. I'll give you gist of the basic plot since I feel like it - Misaki strong, Misaki in trouble, Insert Takumi, Misaki mentally thankful, Takumi going into pervert mode, Takumi saves the day with Misaki, Takumi hurt, Misaki reconsidering Takumi, end of episode. Though, I  am not complaining. 

"Please don't be bothered by it, I'm just another stalker." 
-Usui Takumi 

Brutally honest and openly pervert-ish, Takumi won my heart with his very first run-in with Misaki. 

((Since Usui's blinding glory is stopping my brain - and heart - I'll let Usui's words and sexy pictures do most of the work. I'll throw in some tid-bits about him.))

"I was lonely since you didn't pay attention to me." 
-Usui Takumi

Takumi can be quite lonely since he doesn't have friends. Though Takumi has loads of followers in his fellow classmates, none of them treats him like a friend should. 

"That's exactly the way it should be. Doing only unexpected things, otherwise, i'll lose my reputation as a perverted outer-space human."
-Usui Takumi

Usui teases, irritates and provokes Misaki at every opportunity. And boy does he make me swoon when he tries to make Misaki blush.
"If you lay your hands on her again... I'll tear your throat out."
-Usui Takumi

Usui has a mysterious past, something about a missing mother and very rich father.

"Nurse me in your maid uniform."

-Usui Takumi

Usui is an expert at many things, but most of all at making hearts race and girls all around sigh and swoon.

"If you were to drown... I won't let anyone else give you mouth-to-mouth respiration." 
-Usui Takumi
