The reviews that are coming in for this book are very positive. After reading this amazing excerpt I am ready for the full read. What do you think?

Hearts are like Balloons by Candace Robinson

In the beginning of Hearts are like Balloons I was enamored from the starts as I learned about May Faulkner’s early memories of her father. It amazed me that the author was able to in one chapter show the emotional bond that May felt for her Father. Absolutely had my heart already tied up in this book by the first chapter. With her father’s sudden passing May tries to focus on […]

The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy

The Disappearances is a wondrous tale that is steeped in historical elements and a delight to the imagination. The writing is well crafted, eloquent and rich with details. The characters are developed, unique and memorable. This is a young adult novel and it has the strong emotional pulls that would resonate with that audience. It also has whimsy that would appeal to all readers. This story is set in the […]

Blog Tour Review: Cherished by Christina Bauer

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Starting a series on the third book is not the easiest thing to do. The Author did a fantastic job of including backstory details that helped me to clearly understand what had happened in the previous stories so that I would clearly understand the impact of current events. Cherished is the type of book that you can […]


Kiss Me, Kill You by Larissa C. Hardesty

Kiss Me, Kill You by Larissa C. Hardesty

I was interested in reading Kiss Me, Kill You because it is a young adult book that involved succubae’s. Succubae are defined as seducers of men through sexual intercourse. How was the author going to use that type of creature but still keep this story for the intended young adult audience? I have to say that in that regards this book is quite successful. There was a definite sexual element […]

Blog Tour Review: When Planets Fall by Abby J. Reed

 ***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: I devoured When Planets Fall! This was such a good science fiction series starter. It had just the right elements of futuristic technology, alien lifeforms, space travel, and the underdog losing it all in order to gain everything. I just loved this story! There was even a little bite of romance but it is short lived. This […]

I Want Superpowers by Steven Bereznai

I Want Superpowers is a wonder of a story! It was so much more than I ever imagined when I sat down to read this novel. Set in a dystopian society where the inhabitants are truly divided via the “Have, Have-Nots” rule, except in this case it is regarding genetics. Once the society lived as a whole until their children started being born with special abilities, referred to as manifestations. […]

The first book in this trilogy is titled The Sixth Gate and it is scheduled to come out this summer! At the start of this story we are introduced to Elisabeth, a young girl who is growing […]

Alpha Kaden by Midika Crane

The Alpha Kaden book is a part of the Alpha series and also is included in The Alpha Series Boxed Set: Books 1 – 3. Each book follows the story of an alpha from a werewolf pack. I really enjoyed the world that was created with the different packs. They are all named for what they stand for (ex: Purity, Discipline, Freedom) and their members seem exhibit that quality. Each pack was […]


Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson

Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson

Author Candace Robinson states that she has a history of “growing up with horror movies, fairytales and real life unsolved mysteries” and you can definitely feel that influence in this story. Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault is an amazing story that takes very different genres and weaves them together seamlessly. It was nothing like I had read before, different, and I liked it! When I first started this book, I felt […]

Reckless Treasure by Cecily Wolfe

When I read Reckless Treasure, I had to take some time to really think about my feelings on this book. In western culture, we really dig our happily ever after’s and this story had a HEA but not what you would have expected. I decided that I really appreciated how this story was written and felt that it was a realistically told tale of how life can be for a […]

Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields

I was really excited to read Poison’s Kiss. It sounded fascinating, I loved the cover, had some good reviews…sigh. I just could not get into this book. I started reading it a month or so ago but I set it aside and basically forgot about it. Actually, I would have completely forgotten about it had I not committed to reading it for a challenge. I honestly don’t read a lot […]

Review, Excerpt and Giveaway: Cage of Darkness by Jennifer Anne Davis

My Review:  Amazing, chilling, and heartbreaking! By the end of Cage of Darkness, I was just shaking my fist at the sky! This was my actual response “For the love! For the freaking love! I can’t even! When is the next book out?! So many emotions right now. For the love.” That was over two weeks ago and I am still shaking my head. I want a do-over on that ending, […]

Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean

Toward a Secret Sky was a like-dislike book for me. What originally excited me about this book was that the main character, Maren Hamilton, was ignorant to the fact that her parents were spies until she was sent her mother’s encrypted journal. Then throw in labyrinths, booby-trapped crypts and romance and I was desperately looking forward to this book! It just did not pan out the way I wanted it […]

Myths of Mish by Katie Hamstead

I am not usually a fairytale reader but I do enjoy reading the Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles. I love the idea of a story evolving from the ending of a famous fairytale. Even better is that the characters have their struggles from what they endured previously. I am always excited to see where the story goes. 😉 Hansel and Gretel’s tale of horror with the witch in the woods is a […]

Cage of Deceit by Jennifer Anne Davis

I had signed up to do a blog tour with Good Choice Reading Promotions for Cage of Darkness which is the second book in the Reign of Secrets series. For a lucky few who committed to the blog tour the author was offering a limited number of signed books for the first in the series, which was Cage of Deceit. Heck Yeah! I was one of the lucky bloggers and […]

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Daughter of the Pirate King was a book I knew I had to read. I love anything pirates and bonus, female pirate protagonist, yep a must read. My reason for being unsure was whether or not I was going to like this story due to the age of Alosa. I wasn’t sure how believable her character at seventeen was going to come across as a pirate captain. Turns out I had […]
