|Review| Dewi and the Seeds of Doom by Maggie Lyons

Happy Friday!

Every time I write a post here, I always happy whatever day it is. Today has not been filled with happiness. It's been filled with tons of toilet paper and sneezing...from me. Just four and a half weeks after I got done with a previous cold!


I don't get it. The minute I woke up and felt that I had a sore throat, I knew I was in trouble. But now I am drinking a hot tea and trying to write. It's kinda hard to when your head is throbbing in pain. But, I'm gonna try!

Today I had the oppurtunity to read Dewi and the Seeds of Doom by Maggie Lyons, which was provided by Mother Daughter Book Reviews.


Title: Dewi and the Seeds of Doom
Author: Maggie Lyons
Genre: Children's, Adventure
Release Date: October 2012
Publisher:  Halo Publishing International

MY RATING: 4 FIRE FIRE BREATHING STARS!
When Dewi is clobbered by a falling rat, the nosy Welsh dragon snoops his way into a challenging predicament. Helped by a toad with a passion for chemical wart cures, Dewi discovers that a megalomaniac baron is secretly breeding mutant corn at an unfriendly castle. To thwart the genetically modified-corn baron’s sickening plan, he must use moxie and firepower in a series of catastrophe-skirting capers.



Dewi and the Seeds of Doom will definitely be something I read to my future kids one day! I had not read the blurb of this, so I was diving into this book fully blind...and I liked what I read! 

In the first page of the book, we come across Dewi, a fire breathing dragon. Out of nowhere, a rat comes falling from the sky, and Dewi, being the kind and loving dragon he is, rescues it by taking it to his friend Squiffy the water vole. 

Soon enough, Dewi finds out that his rat friend (which he names Bomber), has been poisoned along with many other rats. Wanting to be the brave and kind dragon he aspires to be, he sets out with the help of his friend, a toad named Mr. Jones to try and get evidence to put away the evil man behind it all.

The author's writing is definitely intriguing for kids all ages and possibly even for adults! I read this book in one sitting and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The story went at a fast pace, which was enjoyable for me, and I'm sure for many other readers out there.

I loved how the author showed how important it was to show kindness to others, to be brave and fearless, but to also be smart. 

Dewi and the Seeds of Doom was filled with action, adventure, kindness, mystery and just a nice little coat of humor; a book filled with things that every child wants! 

The only thing that bothered me; however, was how it was slightly advanced, especially since this book is aimed for young readers. 

Overall, it was a quick, fun read and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an action and mystery filled book!

|Review| Never Never by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher

Happy Wednesday!


The past week and a half has been sort of stressful in my head. I know it sounds weird, but, I've had so many things going on inside my head that I feel like it's going to explode. I completely lost my creative spark and that's one of the reasons why I haven't posted anything the past few days. Instead, I threw myself into books and music and just tried to bring my writing spark back. After a battle between Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith songs, and also reading ten books this month, I think I got my creativity back!

So I am here today with one out of a few reviews that I will be posting today! Continue scrolling for my review of Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher!






Title: Never Never - Part One
Author: Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Mystery
Release Date: January 7th, 2015
Publisher:  Hover Ink

MY RATING: 4.5 STARS!
"How odd to be made of flesh, balanced on bone, and filled with a soul you've never met."
   
Charlize Wynwood and Silas Nash have been best friends since they could walk.  They've been in love since the age of fourteen.
But as of this morning...they are complete strangers.
Their first kiss, their first fight, the moment they fell in love...every memory has vanished.

"I don't care what our real first kiss was," he says. "That's the one I want to remember."

Charlize and Silas must work together to uncover the truth about what happened to them and why.  But the more they learn about the couple they used to be...the more they question why they were ever together to begin with.

"I want to remember what it feels like to love someone like that. And not just anyone.  I want to know what it feels like to love Charlie."



This is the first time I've read a Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher book...and it won't be the last! When I saw this on Amazon, I just knew I had to buy it. Like I said, it was the first book I read by both of these authors, so I crossed my fingers that I wouldn't be disappointed...and I wasn't! 

Diving into this story, I was a little bit confused. I had no idea what was happening, but it intrigued me to see what the authors had planned. 

I thought the writing was beautifully written, and every time the POV switched between the two main characters, it felt as if one author was writing the book instead of two. I clung to every word and every scene between the characters and that is what amazes me with Hoover's and Fisher's work; it demands to be read. (See what I did there? ;) )

The book is about two high schoolers, Charlie and Silas. They have no reconciliation of who they are, who their friends and family are and what happened the night before. They try to pick up as much information as they can from the people around them, including how Charlie and Silas are a couple. They soon find out that they are both experiencing the same thing and they try to work together to figure out what is happening to them. 


“How odd to be made of flesh, balanced on bone, and filled with a soul you’ve never met.”

Let's start with Charlie first. Every time I read her POV, I wasn't completely drawn into it as I had hoped. My interest to this character wasn't really there and for that, I was kind of disappointed. I wanted her to do more, and to say more, yet, she didn't. I did; however, love the tough girl act she had going on, which would make me smile from time to time.

Overall, she was an okay character, but, I'm hoping in the second book that the author develops her even more. 

“I’m gonna make you fall in love with me again.” I can see the gentle roll of her throat as she swallows, but just as fast as she let her guard down, it flies back up."



If someone were to ask me who is my favorite book boyfriend, I would say Silas, hands down. Silas is everything you could ask for in a book boyfriend: handsome, smart, charming, and a smile that will make you melt. 

I definitely felt a strong urge to read his POV's more than Charlie's. Something about the way Hoover writes... it just captures me! 

I can't say much about these two characters because we really couldn't see in depth to who they really were, but, all in all, Hoover and Fisher have captured my complete attention! 



Jensen Ackles represents the authors, and the kid represents us; the readers. I'm sorry, but how could you do that to us?! That ending made my stomach go all crazy and my brain to explode. *scratches head and sighs* Still looking for it though... 



This was literally me after finding out when the second part was coming out! Still, four months is a long time...I don't think it's too soon to request the second part for review, right? ;) 


What do you guys think?  Have you read this one? Will you be picking it up if you haven't? Let me know in the comments below, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Blog Tour: Bridges Burned by Chris Cannon! Review, Excerpt & Giveaway!

Happy Wednesday!


I'm so excited to be apart of this amazing blog tour for Chris Cannon's new book, Bridges Burned, which is the sequel to Going Down in Flames. Continue scrolling to read my review and excerpt, and don't forget to enter the giveaway!




Title: Bridges Burned
Author: Chris Cannon
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Paranormal
Release Date: January 19th, 2015
Publisher:  Entangled Teen
Don't just fight the system…burn it.

Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking…

But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn't a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.

Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.



Bridges Burned will do nothing but make you turn the page and laugh out loud! I was excited to see that I got an e-mail from the publisher offering this for review, and seeing as I loved the first one, I couldn't pass it down! 

Chris Cannon's writing is beautiful in a way where you can picture everything in your head and never forget. The writing flowed at a quick pace, which was enjoyable for me. The characters were likeable, but not my favorite. 

Bryn, the main character, was interesting to read about. She still had her sarcastic funk and witty humor with her, which would cause me to laugh out loud a few times. But, the only thing not likeable about her was how she reacted to things. I was slightly shocked that the author didn't put more emotion into Bryn when finding out about the deaths of a few characters. In my opinion, I don't believe that the characters are truly dead. I don't know if it's me hoping, but I feel like it would be that way.

When Bryn would become angry or frustrated at someone, the only thought she had through her mind was, "throw a fireball at your head" which kind of annoyed me because it was repitious. Even though some of the things she did annoyed me, she did have her good moments and I enjoyed reading about her.

When it comes to Zavien, who is Bryn's love interst, all I have to say is...wow. Where did the guy that would bring Bryn cake and care for her when she needed him? In this book, Zavien was a complete ass! I don't even understand why Bryn would want to take him back, or even care for him after he treated her. I also don't understand how she thinks everything will be perfect between the two when Zavien is someone else's bethrothed. Zavien was a character I completely disliked, but I'm hoping in the third book we can get some answers! 

Even though Jaxon's character isn't a main one, he is seen more in this book than the first. After the threat of Alec, a dragon who wanted to kill Bryn, Jaxon, and his mother in the first book, he and Bryn are tolerating each other a lot more in this sequel. It was nice to see a definite change in their relationship, but to also see that touch of sarcastic, funny, bitterness toward each other.

Overall, Bridges Burned is a funny, quick read and I would recommend it to anyone who is up for witty humor and some dragon flare! 



Jaxon’s eyes went to the display of baby clothes in the window. His brow furrowed
and then his face colored. “Dear God, Bryn, how could you be so stupid?”

“What?” The moron thought she was pregnant? Bryn couldn’t wait to see Jaxon’s
expression when he realized the truth. She put her hand on his chest and pushed
him back a step. “While I appreciate your concern for my well-being, I’m not the
one shopping for baby clothes.”

She bit her lip to keep from laughing as confusion wrinkled his brow. Then his
gaze darted to his mother, and his face paled.“Mother?”

“Are you going to call her stupid?” Bryn asked.

“Of course not,” Jaxon snapped. He squared his shoulders. “Congratulations, Mother. I presume this is a happy occurrence?”

“Yes.” Lillith reached for his hand. “How would you feel about a baby brother?”

He looked at his shoes while he spoke. “I suppose it’s too late to suggest you adopt
another kitten, instead?” His tone was dry, but there was truth in his words.

Lillith laughed. “Too late, but don’t worry. You’ll always be the firstborn male and your father’s heir.”

“Until the baby plots to overthrow you,” Bryn muttered.





Chris Cannon lives in Southern Illinois with her husband and her three dogs, Pete the shih tzu who sleeps on her desk while she writes, Molly the ever-shedding yellow lab, and Tyson the sandwich-stealing German Shepherd Beagle.

 She believes coffee is the Elixir of Life. Most evenings after work, you can find her sucking down caffeine and writing fire-breathing paranormal adventures. Going Down In Flames is the first book in Chris Cannon's shape-shifting dragon series.

Book Blitz: Blood, Milk, & Chocolate by Cameron Jace! Excerpt & Giveaway!

Happy Monday!

Last night, I got the chance to see The Maze Runner..and oh my god! I loved it! I haven't read the book yet, but, I'm thinking on it. Definitely can't wait to watch the second movie! What about you guys? Have you seen the movie? What did you think about it?

Yesterday, I also got the chance to buy the first book in the Grimm Diairies by Cameron Jace, so when I saw this book blitz, I had to sign up! Continue scrolling for an excerpt and giveaway!

I have been accused of being malicious and evil.

I, the Snow White Queen, have a story to tell.

The true story and what has really happened. How it all happened. Why the Brothers Grimm altered the truth, letting you think it was a fairy tale. When and how the tale took place. And above all, why I did what I did. Why you haven’t been told the truth for centuries. The truth about me and the truth about the not-so-innocent Snow White.

Here is my side of the story. You will never look at Snow White the same way again.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13611117-blood-milk-and-chocolate?ac=1

For a moment, I thought this was it. This was the end of our short-lived love story, where a beauty—supposedly me at the time, before the world got to me—was going to get bitten by the beast, Angel Von Sorrow. This was the moment when I was about to realize that my mother was right in not approving of our love. This was the moment when I realized that trying to break the rules by staring at my reflection in the Pond of Pearls was what brought me here. This…was the end of me.

Maybe the mermaids were right; there was a reason why me and Angel shouldn't have been together.

I closed my eyes, my vein pulsing and ready to be sliced open by the one I loved dearly. Was I going to turn into a vampire like him? Were we both going to be gifted—and cursed—with immortality? I had no idea. All I did was wait for his teeth to sink into my soul.

Wonderlander, Neverlander, Unicorn-chaser, enchanter, musician, survived a coma, & totally awesome. Sometimes I tell stories. Always luv the little monsters.

I write young adult paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and science fiction mostly. The Grimm Diaries series is a seven book saga that deals with retellings of fairy tales from a young adult POV - it connects most of the fairy tales together and claims to be the truth about fairy tales. I live in San Fransisco and seriously think circles are way cooler than triangles.

| ARC Review | Bridges Burned (Going Down in Flames #2) by Chris Cannon!

Happy Sunday!


First off..today's been a mother freaking great day. Since my dad has some great ideas, and I was in need of one, I asked him if he had any ideas on how to make my area more bookish (he didn't understand what bookish meant and asked my Mom to translate!) for a future plan of mine. 

I literally have The. Best. Dad. Ever. We spent a few hours creating two homemade bookshelves and it looks AWESOME! It's suits as a bookend and two bookshelves; in the middle and on the top.

I also went and bought tons of books on Amazon and I'm pretty sure my dad would have a heart attack to see how much I spent! Yes..I have a problem. But, I've come to terms with it and quite frankly, I'm fine with it :)

I've recently finished the book Bridges Burned, an ARC I received from the publisher. (Thank you!) Continue scrolling for my review!

| ARC Review | All Fall Down by Ally Carter!

Happy Thursday!

Ah, today has been a very good day. No school today, which felt good. Did a kick ass work out and it also felt good. Even though I felt like it was kicking me!

The entire week has just been a jumbled mess in my brain. In my previous post, I mentioned that I was joining in on a discussion challenge..well, I've got an idea in my head. I just don't know whether I want to start a booktube channel and post the discussion on there or in a blog post.

The past few days I've been considering making a booktube channel. I've always been a shy person, but I'm curious to know how I would be on video..with hundreds of people watching me. What? Who says I'm nervous? I'm not nervous! *eye twitch* Either way, I'm going to take one of my parents laptop this weekend, record a video, edit it and then we shall see how that goes!

For this review, I'm wanting to try a different format. I'm starting not to like the way I do my reviews, so I'm thinking of changing it up a bit. Let me know what you guys think below?

Also, what do you think of the banner? I wanted to do something fun in Photoshop and I like the results! Let me know what you guys think in the comments!




Title: All Fall Down (Embassy Row#1)
Author: Ally Carter
Genre: Young Adult, Spy Thriller, Mystery
Release Date: February 20th, 2015
Publisher:  Scholastic Press

RATING: 5 GOLDEN STARS
Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:

1. She is not crazy

2. Her mother was murdered

3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay

As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her - so there's no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door, who is keeping an eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.

Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can't control Grace - no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do. Her past has come back to haunt her . . . and if she doesn't stop it, Grace isn't the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down..


Ally Carter has done it again! From the story to the cover, everything about All Fall Down is exciting and sure to keep you on your toes! 

When I received this for review, I was overjoyed. I have read the entire series of the Gallagher Girls, and to have another book of Ally Carter in my hands..it felt like heaven. 

I dove into this book with excitement and I was not disappointed. The first few chapters; however, did leave me a little worried if I was going to end up liking the book or not. 

After a few chapters into the book, I could picture everything so vividly and that's what amazes me when reading Ally Carter's books. The worlds she creates, the characters she develops, it comes to life inside of my head and it's like I'm in that book, which of course, is a bonus for me. There were also moments where I would laugh out loud and of course, who doesn't love a little laughing here and there?

At the beginning of the book, we see Grace talking to Ms. Chancellor, the secretary of Grace's grandfather, who, of course, is the Ambassador for the United States. 

Grace is a sixteen year old girl, who unfortunately suffers a traumatic loss of her mother three years back. At first, I couldn't connect with Grace, which disappointed me. I wanted to connect with her from the very beginning, but I just couldn't. I felt like the author could have put more development into this character, but decided it was best not to. In the middle of the book; however, I started to feel that connection, and I liked her even more.  Grace was an interesting character, and I'm excited to see how she develops in the second book.

When meeting Ms. Chancellor the first time, the thought that came to my head was "is she going to be an evil accessory in this book?" But as I kept reading, it wasn't like that at all. She cared for the well being of Grace, and her grandfather, which was refreshing. I'm definitely hoping to see her in the next book.

The only thing I wish the author would have added, would be the romance. I'm always a sucker for romance, but there wasn't even a touch of it. The character Alexei, is Grace's brother's best friend. Grace used to hang around him as a kid, but after the death of her mother, their relationship had changed. 

Now, after three years, they meet, and at first, I don't like him. He seemed cocky and full of himself, but that wasn't the case. With his Russian accent, gorgeous blue eyes and black hair, you can't help but fall for him... even if he tends to be way overprotective! I truly hope we see more of him in the second book! 

Another male character was Noah, the son of Brazil and Israel's Ambassadors. He becomes Grace's best friend in literally twenty minutes! There was more of Noah than Alexei which is why I'm more fond of him. He was charming, handsome, and had a lot of humor in him! After he finds out about what happened to Grace's mom and who she thinks is the murderer, he does his best to help her...but, ends up getting hurt by Grace. But thankfully, they become friends yet again almost near the end of the book. I'm looking forward to seeing Noah in the second book! 

Overall, All Fall Down is a quick, amazing read that I couldn't put down..not even for sleep! Ally Carter has yet again amazed me with her world full of secrets, lies, and spies! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a great spy thriller. 


I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Guest Post: Lost in Starlight by Sherry Soule - Character Interview!

Happy Sunday!


Well, today has been a lovely day. I've been relaxing, reading the second book in Chris Cannon's series, Going Down in Flames, and I've also been working on another bash! Can't wait to tell you guys more! :)

Today author, Sherry Soule has some exciting news to share with us! She just published a brand new novel, LOST IN STARLIGHT (paranormal romance with a Sci-Fi concept).

To help promote this interstellar love story, Sherry is doing this guest post to share the news with fellow booklovers.

Title: Lost in Starlight
Author: Sherry Soule
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Science Fiction
Publisher:  Moonlight Publishing

BUY LINKS: | Amazon |
High school is tough. Romance with a sexy alien—even tougher.

Star reporter Sloane Masterson knows she has one helluva story when she witnesses hottie Hayden Lancaster bending forks with his mind.

Like any good journalist, Sloane sets out to uncover the truth, even if it includes a little stalking. When the superhuman feats start to pile up and the undeniable heat rises between them, Hayden has no choice but to reveal his secret: he’s an alien hybrid.

They’re as different as night and day—she’s a curvy, purple-haired, horror junkie and he’s a smoking hot, antisocial, brainiac—yet the intense fascination between them refuses to go away. Even at Hayden’s insistence that dating each other is “off limits” and dangerous, their fiery attraction threatens to go supernova.

Now Sloane’s dealing with creepy government agents, über snobby extraterrestrials, and a psycho alien ex-girlfriend out for revenge. After a crash course on the rules of interstellar dating, Sloane must decide if their star-crossed romance is worth risking her own life.... 

                                      Meet Sloane Masterson, the heroine of the Starlight Saga!


If a headstrong, gutsy, and imperfect heroine with an eccentric fashion sense appeals to you, then you'll love Sloane. If you’ve already read the novel, this interview should be amusing and insightful. And if you haven’t read LOST IN STARLIGHT yet, hopefully this fun character interview will pique your interest. 

Things that I think make my protagonist unique and not your typical (“perfect” YA heroine):

Zombie fangirl
A girl with major curves
Horror Movie reviewer
Foodie
Self-esteem issues
Geek magnet with a rather large bosom
A chick who favors the dark-side in appeal
High School Reporter
Online Columnist and Movie critic 



Please state your name:  
Sloane Elizabeth Masterson

Astrological sign:  
Taurus

Age: 
18

Height: 
5’4”

Weight:
About 140 or so…

Job:
High School student and reporter for the Haven Gazette with my own horror movie column

Vehicle: 
VW Jetta

Dog/Cat:
I have a fluffy black cat named Jinx.

Favorite food: 
Cheeseburgers with extra mustard

Describe yourself in three words: 
Dependable, Independent, Sensitive

Greatest flaw? 
I guess I can sometimes be somewhat obnoxious at times and I can be extremely opinionated. My BFF says that I’m offensively curious because of my job as a HS reporter.

Best quality?
I think I’m very trustworthy, genuine, open-minded, and fiercely independent

Person you admire most?
Abigail “Abby” Sciuto from the TV show NCIS, and writer and director, Andrés Muschietti.

Hobbies?
Watching movies, shopping, posting reviews of horror flicks, and reading.

Cuddling with a cute boy while watching a zombie flick with a tub of buttery popcorn!

Thanks for answering all of my questions, Sloane.

Sherry Soule lives with one very spoiled black cat in the San Francisco Bay Area. She's always wanted to live in a world where sweatpants are sexy, cupcakes don't make you fat, and she could adopt every homeless animal.

As an author, her books have been nominated as *Top Picks* in the "Best Paranormal Romance" categories by sites such as The Romance Reviews, Night Owl Reviews, and the Paranormal Romance Guild. Her YA novel, "Lost In Starlight" has been quoted as an unforgettable love story for teens. 

When she's not writing thrilling tales of romance and suspense, often mingled with a dash of the mystical and a splash of trendy fashion, you can find her watching Netflix, reading on her Kindle (often crushing on fictional characters), or hanging with her zany family.
