Me and books lately; becoming a reading addict.

Hello guys and girls!!

   I hope you're enjoying Ramadan and making the most of it (if you're a Muslim of course, if you're not, Ramadan is our fasting month :)).
   If you've noticed, since Ramadan started, I've been away most of the time. I'm trying to make the most out of this month. However, since I'm not a TV person, I hate current TV series (Except for Burn Notice and catching up on Hawaii Five-0) and I've been trying to stay away from useless music (I know, I've been listening to music but the explanation is coming...).
    So for fun, I've decided to read books that interest me. I made a research for what kind of books I should be reading to use what's left of my spare time. In addition to my love for everything supernatural, paranormal, fantasy and Sci-Fi, I've found a new interest, young adult.
     With that being said, I'm referring to YA (an abbreviation to Young Adult genre, in case you were wondering what it means.) that is also a paranormal or fantasy, containing ghosts, vampires, souls or/and my latest crush, Revenants. I've been known to my friends that I hate romance, but some of it doesn't hurt as long as it's not between two humans... just a point of view.
     Anyways, I'm informing you because you might notice that my Tumblr blog has been turning into a review blog for books I read. I don't know if I'm going to end up changing it into a book blog or something, but for now, with seniors ahead of me, I'm leaving as it is. I'll share random things I like which I think are worth giving a look too.
     Just as a note, most of the books I'm reading or I read are in ePub formats (eBooks) the rest are audiobooks. Why is that you ask? I can happily tell you that it's not because I don't like real books but because the new books and in the language I'm reading (English) aren't available in my city!! So, most of the books I read are either gifted to me by my friends online or me getting them off torrents. I've been considering getting an eReader but guess what? It's not available here either, I doubt if it's even available in the country!! >_<" If you're in a place where B&N's Nook Color or Kobo's eReader Touch are sold and you want to help get one (I'll send you the money of course) let me know :), you'll be doing me a huge favor.
    Regarding the music I've been listening to, it's from the books that I read. Basically each book has its playlist that inspired the author :).   That's it!
     If you want to check my reads, reviews or add me, I'm at Goodreads all the time updating my progress and books with my phone.
Have a nice day/evening :)
