Book Slumps and Daily Reads

So as you noticed i have been absent, it's not intentionally though and I've been feeling down about it. I've been in a book slump these past weeks and it may have ended when i finally read the "Throne of glass series" i even reread the series about 3 times that's how much i loved it, since then my slump is over and i have read more books that i needed to for review. So there will be some upcoming reviews next week hopefully and a few blog tours.

When i started this blog I've said i would post daily not just reviews but something i call "Daily reads" could be a book you're reading for review or a book you loved and can reread all the time. So i was thinking wanted to make this permanent, sort of like daily memes.








This is my daily read for various reasons, it makes me nostalgic for a time when i was a kid just like these characters and also i could relate to both characters at times.

















I'm currently reading this for the 4th time. What's no…

Spelled Spotlight Tour Feature

Today is my Stop on The "May Spelled Spotlight Tour" There will also be a Giveaway and Excerpt and i will be doing a review in June. Thanks to Kathryn Lynch at SourceBooks for inviting me.



Blurb: Talk about unhappily ever after. Dorthea is completely princed out. Sure being the crown princess of Emerald has its perks—like Glenda Original ball gowns and Hans Christian Louboutin heels. But a forced marriage to the not-so-charming prince Kato is so not what Dorthea had in mind for her enchanted future.
Trying to fix her prince problem by wishing on a (cursed) star royally backfires, leaving Dorthea with hair made up of emerald flames and the kingdom in chaos. Her parents and everyone she loves are stuck in some place called “Kansas.” Now it’s up to Dorthea and her pixed-off prince to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz and undo the curse…before it releases the wickedest witch of all and spells The End for the world of Story.

Broken Lies Review

Broken Series #1
Claire Vale
YA/Dystopian/Romance
 CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
March 8,2015


Scientists predicted it would take seventy years for the Arctic Shelf to completely melt. In the end, it took less than five. We lost thirty percent of our land to the oceans and a big chunk of our structure to panic and anarchy.
The Melt crippled us.
But it was the Arctic Virus at the bottom of The Melt, trapped for millennia in the darkest depths of ice strata, that broke us. The real flood was the Living Corpses. A population of billions turned to soulless, rabid shells within months. That’s what washed away the human race as we know it.

Born into a post-apocalyptic world, Lake has grown up in the last city standing. Governed by what used to be the Queen’s Cold Stream Guard, vaccinated against the threat, life in Windsor City is both harsh and fair. The rules are designed to strengthen the city and ensure survival.
Lake’s future is planned out with opportunities and unfair advantages …

Engage Review

Engage Ignite, 2.5 Erica CrouchPatchwork Press Sci-Fi/FantasyYAPub Date   May 5 2015








Kalaziel is a terrible guardian angel: her temper’s shorter than she is, she swears, she’s missing a wing, and she sees no problem with letting man make their own choices—no matter how questionable. That’s what free will is all about, right? Her overseers disagree.

After she mishandles an assignment, Heaven strips Kala of her title and throws her back into training, hoping to reinforce the covenant of vows she swore to uphold as a guardian. But the angels’ motives aren’t as pure as they appear: they want to eradicate any opinions that conflict with Heaven’s code.

With a mass cleansing on the horizon, Kala discovers she is not alone in her insubordination; there are other angels who are restless with the stasis of Heaven and ready for change. Progress doesn’t come easily, though, especially when it means uniting ancient enemies to fight for a common cause.

Engage is a novella that prequels Kala and Ana’s sto…

The Blurb:A thrilling, futuristic sci-fi novel set in a unique and thought-provoking world, from author Shannon Duffy.
Desiree Six (because she was born on a Friday) believes in everything the Protectorate stands for. She likes the safety and security of having her entire life planned out—her career, her mate, even the date of her death. She doesn't even think to question when Darian, her childhood friend and neighbor, is convicted of murdering his parents. They had seemed like such a loving family. But if he was convicted, then he must have done it.

Then Darian shows up in her room late one night. He has escaped from the Terrorscape—a nightmare machine used to punish all Noncompliants—and needs Desiree's help. What he tells her rocks her world to its core and makes her doubt everything she's ever been told. With this new information, will Desiree and Darian…
