Monday News Flash # 2

Monday News Flash is a weekly or bi-weekly (and I hope that means every two weeks) “flash” on what is to come on Persephone’s Winged Reviews.

What is new here:

1) Hetalia Weekly Pic. Yes, my obsession with Hetalia is still very high and I need an outlet to express my current affair with it. Three months ago, it would have been Death Note. Every week, I’ll change the picture and hopefully, everyone country has a spot on there.

2) I have all my button up and running so you can Friend me on Goodreads and Paperback Swap, Follow me on Twitter, and Find me on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Nobles. Still working on the strikethroughs.

3) Since I’m going to be reviewing manga, I decided to do some introductory posts about manga (and anime).

What’s up for review in the next two weeks?
We have Trouble Brewing by Edward Winslow, Hollowland by Amanda Hocking, Guy Langman by Josh Beck, Glass House by Rachel Caine and The Wedding Gift by Kathleen McKenna. (More may be added).

Unexpected Surprise:
Jamais Vu by Monique O’Connor. I was not expecting this book. I was trying to win in a giveaway hosted by Monique and I happened to mention what the title means which is “never seen.” It’s the opposite of deja vu and not many people know that. Next thing I know, Monique e-mailed me a PDF version of the book for knowing the what the title meant. I was so surprised and thrilled to have it. Can’t wait to read, thank you Monique O’Connor.

Until then, let’s show some love to Spain.

Happy New Year! (Hetalia Style)


Well, here we are in 2012 and it’s the start of a brand new year. I hope it is a great year for everyone and hopefully, we manage to keep our resolutions. I know, I have never been able to maintain my resolutions but one day, I will keep at least one. I hope this is the year. So, what are my resolutions? Well, I have two sets: Blogging and Personal.

Blogging Resolutions

  • Blog once per week and not miss a single week
  • Complete 15 out of my 20 reading challenges.
    • Complete all the challenges if possible

Personal Resolutions

  • Run three miles per week starting on  the 2nd week of January
  • Improve my Spanish by reading a book series in Spanish
  • Learn to use my right hand to properly type on the computer. My  left hand is perfect when it comes to typing but when it comes to right hand, I only use two fingers.

I desperately tried to find a Hetalia pic that showed them partying and this one was the best I could find. I’m totally confused as to who is playing the accoustic guitar. Prussia and Spain are at the front so I thought it was France but that’s not France. Unless he stole Canada’s glasses and Russia’s scarf ( but no one is crazy enough to do that).

I love playing “Spot the Country” in this picture. And if you’re really good, you can spot some non-country but still Hetalia related characters there. It’s like playing Where’s Waldo?

I hope you enjoy playing this game and what series do you think I should read in Spanish? I was thinking the Harry Potter Series.
