Hi guys! If you follow me on twitter/instgram you probably remember me saying I have way too many physical ARC’s sitting in my room and need to get rid of them.

I have the following books up for grabs and want to give my lovely followers a chance to snatch them up before I box them up and shove them in a closet!   That’s: Trial By Fire by Josephine Angelini Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynn Barnes Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant Skink No Surrender by Carl Hiaasen The Devil’s Intern by Donna Hoise Lailah by Nikki Kelly Pennyroyal Academy by M.A. Larson Sick by Tom Leveen Let The… Read more »


Top Ten Books On Our Fall TBR List!

Top Ten Books On Our Fall TBR List!

September 23, 2014 Features & Spotlights 4

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by  The Broke and The Bookish. Top Ten Books On Our Fall TBR List! The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan Goodreads Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen—all of them—and they’re stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood—the blood of Olympus—in order to wake.The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it “might” be able to stop a war… Read more »


Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

September 22, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★½

Afterworlds was probably one of my most anticipated reads for the year. I have read (and loved) Westerfeld’s Leviathon trilogy and his Uglies series was probably one of the first YA series I’ve ever read. So when I found out that Scott Westerfeld had a new book coming out and it’s about a teenage writer, I was beyond excited. Afterworlds is a dual point-of-view novel that revolves around Darcy. She’s written her first novel during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and she recently got a book deal for it and she decides to move to New York, to pursue her writing dream. The book revolves around Darcy’s journey and her book. As the tagline says: “Darcy writes the words. Lizzie lives them.” Personally, I loved Darcy’s parts better. That’s mostly because I’m a huge contemporary fan and I’ve never read a book, contemporary or not, that deals with the same issues that Darcy has. Besides the whole ‘becoming a writer’ thing,… Read more »

Storm Siren by Mary Weber

Storm Siren by Mary Weber

September 19, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★½

Storm Siren was the kind of book that had me shouting from the mountain tops about how great it was after only a few chapters. I tweeted, I squealed, I devoured the book word for word. Loving each piece, each twist and each character. In fact I think the characters are what I loved the most. You had such strong yet amusing people to help balance out the heavy atmosphere the plot was twisting around you. It was fabulous! Storm Siren starts off with Nym on the auction block. Not an ideal situation of course but tis life and all that. Then bam, one wrong move from a total jerk face and we see our first glimpse of what Nym is capable of. And believe me, that is one hell of a sight! In fact being able to witness the various abilities and personalities is why I loved the characters so much. Each person was unique and added a valuable… Read more »


Lailah by Nikki Kelly!

Lailah by Nikki Kelly!

September 18, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★

I received this book from Macmillan for a review (thanks!), however, this does not affect the contents of my review nor my thoughts about the book.  Looking at the cover and reading the synopsis, it was pretty easy for me to want to read this book IMMEDIATELY. Basically, a 17 year old girl,Francesca, is immortal, well, sort of. When she dies, she comes back to life immediately but with little memory except her name and a general sense of who she is. Except, Francesca doesn’t really know how or why she can’t die. And this is where the plot of Lailah starts. Lailah was just a whirlwind of action, suspense, a little creepiness and swoon-worthy romance. The mystery behind Francesca (a.k.a Cessie)’s immortality is not too hard to figure out but Francesca still struggles to understand it herself. While all of this self-searching is happening, Cessie struggles to choose between two guys. Yes, there is a love triangle and while I am… Read more »

Blog Tour: Firebug by Lish McBride

September 16, 2014 Reviews 8 ★★★★★

Hey guys, today we have the lovely Lish McBride on the blog today for her upcoming release, Firebug! This post features my 5 star review with many caps, a guest post from Lish AND an awesome giveaway for US/CAN readers! Without further ado, I present FIREBUG! Before we start, you can: -Read an excerpt of Firebug now! (which I highly recommend!) -Download the first five chapters of Firebug for free! (DO IT!) -Follow Lish McBride on Twitter! -Become a fan on Facebook -Check out her website! Guest Post Urban fantasy is definitely its own beast. In some ways, traditional fantasy is easier, because you get to make everything run the way you want to without conforming to a preexisting world. That being said, the flip side is also true—with traditional fantasy you have to make ALL OF IT UP. Which puts a burden on the writer. Besides figuring out how the magic works, you also have to figure out how the world itself works…. Read more »


Lailah by Nikki Kelly

Lailah by Nikki Kelly

September 15, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★½

Come here my loves I have a glorious story for you and you mustn’t miss it! You see I had the amazing chance to go on a journey and I must tell you all the wonderful, dark, twisted and all around AMAZING bits and pieces of said journey! Like most amazing journey’s this one started with a book. A book with a beautiful cover of hands ripping from the ground reaching up towards this innocent and fragile looking young woman. See… But unlike most stories about books with stunning covers this one has something many others lack. An amazing and twisting story within. Lailah starts with a girl in a bar. I know it sounds like a joke but… well it isn’t a joke. Anyway it doesn’t take long for us to realize that Cessie (names are forever changing when it comes to this book) isn’t your run of the mill barmaid. In fact in just the first 20 pages… Read more »
