Book Summary:

Be careful what you wish for…

Lyra has always been ahead of the curve. Top of her class in school, a budding astronomer, and with a best friend like Darren she barely has time to miss the mother who abandoned her family years ago. She’s too busy planning to follow in her father’s footsteps, and to become the youngest astronomer at Space Exploration and Discovery.

When a star goes missing Lyra is determined to get to the bottom of it only to discover her braniac dad is the mastermind of a top-secret government experiment. They promise to build a perfect world, one galaxy at a time, but with every tweak of the present, a bit more of the future starts to crumble.

Lyra has to go undercover to reveal the truth and let humanity decide if the consequences are worth more than wishing on a star.

My Review:

What honestly drew me in was this amazing cover. I am in love with astronomy so the title also caught my eye. I knew I had to read it! This book got straight to the point, it was not slow, which I love. It also had a very large amount of information about the stars. This is where the fangirl in me starts screaming..as I said before, I love astronomy. I absolutely can not wait until the second book! Although, the events that Lyra goes through seems a little bit too far fetched. And the style of writing seems a little…beginner. Nonetheless, I LOVED joining Lyra on her adventure, and I will definitely be reading the next book.

kelley lynnAbout the Author
Eventually the day came when the voices in Kelley Lynn’s head were more insistent then her engineering professor’s. So instead of turning to her Thermodynamics book, Kelley brought up a blank page on her computer screen and wrote. Somewhere along the way she became a Young Adult author.
Kelley was born and raised a Midwestern girl. She’s not afraid to sweat and fills her free time with softball, soccer and volleyball. (Though you probably don’t want her on your volleyball team.) She occasionally makes guest appearances as a female vocalist for area bands. Music plays a large role in her writing process as well as the characters and plot lines within her stories.

You can find Kelley hanging out at her blog, titled in her name, as well as the group blog she shares with her fellow critique partners, Falling for Fiction. Kelley is a member of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators.

dream boy coverDream Boy

by Madelyn Rosenberg and Mary Crockett

Release Date: 07/01/14

Sourcebooks Fire

 

Summary from Goodreads:

Annabelle Manning feels like she’s doing time at her high school in Chilton, Virginia. She has her friends at her lunchtime table of nobodies. What she doesn’t have are possibilities. Or a date for Homecoming. Things get more interesting at night, when she spends time with the boy of her dreams. But the blue-eyed boy with the fairytale smile is just that—a dream. Until the Friday afternoon he walks into her chemistry class.


One of friends suspects he’s an alien. Another is pretty sure it’s all one big case of deja vu. While Annabelle doesn’t know what to think, she’s willing to believe that the charming Martin Zirkle may just be her dream come true. But as Annabelle discovers the truth behind dreams—where they come from and what they mean—she is forced to face a dark reality she had not expected. More than just Martin has arrived in Chilton. As Annabelle learns, if dreams can come true, so can nightmares.

Advanced Praise:

“Dream Boy explores the mysterious world of dreams, where we access our deepest desires…the authors expertly weave fantasy and the real world in a perfect blend.”

— Erica Orloff, author of In Dreams

 

“Eerie, twisty, fast and funny, Dream Boy will forever change the way you see your dreams–and your nightmares. An exciting, imaginative look at what might happen when people from the corners of your mind suddenly show up in your real life.”

— Lois Metzger, author of A Trick of the Light

 

Reviews:

“The perfect book to add to your summer reading list. An awesome balance of love, humor and action, this new read may just be your dream come true!” – GirlsLife

 

“Hits the chick-lit and romance buttons, adding suspense and an intriguing idea as well for nicely rounded entertainment.” — Kirkus Review

 

“An original, twisty paranormal romance.” — Booklist

 

“Five stars… Perfect writing, perfect characters … perfect plot.” — Paperback Wonderland

 

“Dream Boy skillfully and creatively tackles the common theme of good and bad dreams coming alive…. The writing is tight and well-paced, and nicely balances action with Annabelle’s character development as she tries to unravel the mysteries of… her dreams. Her teenage voice is spot on: unsure of herself, but spirited, with a sarcasm that masquerades as confidence. The plot twists and moves in unexpected yet fascinating directions.” — The Roanoke Times

Excerpt:

I’ve always been a dreamer. Daydreams. Night dreams. Dreams of grandeur and dreams of escape. If I were an onion and you peeled back the papery outside, you’d find layer after layer of eye-watering dreams. And in the center, where there’s that little curlicue of onion heart? There’d be a puff of smoke from the dreams that burned away.

 

It was all just brain waves, I thought—disconnected, like the notebook that my friend Talon keeps. She draws a line down the middle of the page; on the right she writes everything she remembers about a dream, and on the left she puts notes about the stuff that’s happening in real life, things that might trigger her subconscious. Reality on one side, dreams on the other—a clear line between the two.

 

But it turns out there are no clear lines, just a jumble of what is and what might be. And all of it is real.

Goodbye To You
by A.J. Matthews
Release Date: 07/01/14
Swoon Romance
New Adult

Summary from Goodreads:GOODBYE_TO_YOU
Europe? Nope. Mexico? Nope. Key West?

Not me. This summer, I’m playing nursemaid to my sister. Yeah, I know. Relatively good looking twenty-two-year-olds don’t spend the summer bedside in the cancer ward, but that’s the plan – until my sister threatens me with bodily harm unless I get on the plane.

That’s when I met him. He likes me. Really likes me. But more than that, he loves my boobs — like can’t get enough. I have no idea how to tell him that they’ll be gone soon. Courtesy of a preventative double mastectomy. Yep. That’s what testing positive for the breast cancer gene mutation will do to a girl.

But don’t feel sorry for me. I’m enjoying him, holding on until the last possible minute, while I muster up the strength to tell him, and watch him walk away.

Today, I write stories featuring nice guys (or nice guys in-the-making) in between my other jobs writing research reports for a commercial real estate company, refereeing two young daughters, navigating the teen waters with a too-cute-for-his-own-good son, spoiling a neurotic cat, and making my darling, patient husband shake his head. I’m also an autism mom, chocolate enthusiast, sports-watcher, nacho-eater, and beer-drinker.

Blog Tour/Review: Tarot: The Magician by Tim Kane

Synopsis:

After discovering an ancient tarot deck, Kassandra Troy’s life takes a thrilling and frightening turn. She triggers The Magician card and releases the mysterious and captivating Luke Rykell.

 

Luke has a dark secret. He wants the magical deck for himself. To save herself and her friends, Kassandra is forced to journey into the Tarot cards. But can she find a way out of the deck unscathed or will the darkness which follows her destroy them all?

My rating:3.5 out of 5 Stars

My Review:
This book has taken me through a journey with Kassandra… that I may or may not forget. Nonetheless, I was happy I got to go.

Starting with positive, the events in the book were very memorable. They are slightly creepy, although it might just be me. But if you are very easily scared (like thou) then you should take this into consideration. I haven’t read a book dealing with a Tarot deck (that is, if The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones doesn’t count). So for reading my first, it was pretty exhilarating! I think this is a perfect first. I’ve always been interested in astrology, tarot cards, and even paganism (though I would never practice it!). I have a deck of tarot cards but it is “the garden variety type” and I know little about them. I’m also glad the cover resembles the book, and the features of the girl on the cover are similar Kassandra.

On to the negative, I didn’t feel sad for the main character when negative things happened. She seemed human but it didn’t seem right. I felt like Kassandra might have been leaning towards the flat side of the character rather than being rounded. We didn’t really learn a lot about her, though fragments showed up throughout the book. Gabriel (who I absolutely loved) seemed more rounded than Kassandra did, despite his short appearance in the book. And the end was poorly written. That character was the worse. She showed no compassion, she was very annoying. And it ended up leaving a bad feeling for me.

Excerpt: 

People never talked about him dying. Instead they got all weepy and switched subjects. As if avoiding the topic would somehow make everything smiles and sunshine. It didn’t. When someone disappears, it’s like unraveling a sweater. Cut one strand, and the whole thing falls apart.

 

Kassandra caught a glimpse of her tangled hair in the mirror of Mom’s dresser. She looked frayed and disconnected—a lump of useless yarn who once was a girl.

 

Shaking her head, she scrounged through the cluttered bottles of nail polish, searching for a wadded up bill. Mom had to be good for a ten or twenty. No way was she going to borrow from Auntie Jo. Not again. Just a couple of new killer tops would make her grungy jeans work. School started tomorrow and Kassandra dreaded it. Kids never talked to the new girl. Especially the one with a lousy wardrobe.

 

The dresser reeked of cigarette smoke. At least if she found some money, it’d be one less dollar Mom could spend on cancer sticks. Kassandra’s fingers brushed a scrap of paper. Snatching it, her fishnet glove snagged on a bottle, sending the nail polish tumbling to the carpet with a clunk. The top popped off and red liquid oozed onto the café au lait carpet.

 

She scrunched her face. So not how she planned it. Kassandra eyed the crinkled paper in one hand. A lousy receipt.

 

Morning light shimmered off the puddle, already soaking into the carpet. Kassandra looped a blond curl over one ear and, yanking a handful of tissues from the box, dropped to the floor. Her bare knees brushed the carpet, the holes in her jeans from actual wear and tear and not fashionable rips. She so needed a new pair.

 

“Kassandra?” Auntie Jo’s voice glided down the hallway. “You coming, sugar?”

 

Kassandra’s heart kicked into high gear. She was supposed to be getting ready in her own room, not rummaging through Mom’s. “Sure, in a sec.”

 

The sticky bottle of nail polish went in the trash. Mom wouldn’t miss it. She had enough shades to create her own color chart at Home Depot. Kassandra dabbed at the spill with a wadded up tissue and then sat back to inspect the stain. The red blob was a stop sign smeared onto the carpet. Kassandra dumped a bottle of nail polish remover on the spot, sending up a wave of bitter fumes. The splotch, now pink, still drenched the carpet. She dragged over the throw rug by the bed and tossed it across the stain. Good enough.

 

Kassandra dashed down a hall lined with photos of unknown relatives and flew through her door just as Auntie Jo rounded the corner. The woman wore an Egyptian shawl draped over a wide body the color of deep mahogany. A purple scarf reigned in her tightly curled afro.

 

“The morning is young and thy chariot shan’t wait forever.” Auntie Jo waved one arm as if she were some kind of royalty.

So when Kate Carrigan breaks into their estate, he’ll be damned if he lets the little wildcat get away with it – especially after she seduced him three months ago, leaving him buck-naked in a New Orleans hotel. Declan wants payback – and some answers. Before she was murdered, Kate’s mother ingrained it in her not to trust anyone.  Kate’s magical powers make her a pawn in the war between good and evil, a war she’s always avoided.  Declan is everything she’s been taught to fear, even if she can’t forget the memory of his touch that one night… Trouble is brewing as the powers of evil regroup – bolder and hungrier than ever – and Kate is forced to choose a side.

Cover Reveal: Breaking Fences!!!!

Breaking Fences (The
Breaking Series, #2)
by Juliana
Haygert
 

Genre: NA contemporary romance
Word Count: ~80,000


Release date: June/2014


Cover by: Okay Creations
Summary from Goodreads:
All Beatriz “Bia” Fernandes wants is to prove herself—to her
family and friends—though it’s hard to prove anything with an overbearing
father and three famous polo-playing older brothers. After her acceptance into
college results in a heated family argument, the Brazilian girl leaves
everything behind to find her own American dream.


College life away from home is perfect until the people she believes to be her
friends turn on her. With lies and rumors threatening to suffocate her, Bia
turns to her only freedom. Riding.


But one thing gets in the way of her escape. Garrett Blackwell and his bad cowboy
attitude. Working at the ranch is his obligation, bugging Bia is his newfound
hobby. His thick skin and easy grin don’t hide what Bia already knows—this
misunderstood and lonely cowboy fights his own demons. Brushing horses’ coats
and mucking out stalls shouldn’t be this sexy, and it isn’t long before he
becomes a part of her distraction.

However, escaping won’t solve her problems, and it’s up to Bia to break down
the fences around her and prove her strength—not to her family and friends, but
to herself … and for Garrett. Because standing on her own doesn’t have to mean
standing alone.


** Companion novel of Breaking the Reins. Can be read out of
order.**

Book Blast:Blackness Takes Over

20140306-225554.jpg

Synopsis
Shannon Kelly’s life has been anything but typical.
Her life has been altered viciously at the hands of others twice.

However horrible they have been, it’s these changes that have given her a family and career…now possibly love.
The last thirteen years she has been supported and loved by her protector, her entertainer, and her comforter, but never a lover.

When Dylan Kellerman enters Shannon’s life he changes its course in more ways than one.
He gives her hope and promise of a future she was convinced wasn’t attainable.

Just as she begins to believe she has finally turned her life into something she can build a future on…blackness takes over.

20140306-230148.jpg
ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Blackness Takes Over is Norma Jeanne’s debut novel. What began as an homage to the home town of a homesick Midwestern girl, unfolded a story of love, danger, humor, and trust. She’s currently working on her untitled sophomore effort. We can’t wait to see what thrilling saga she leads us through next!

Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Norma Jeanne recently found herself relocating to the United Kingdom. Now living in Belfast, she took hold of the opportunity to kick the 9-5 job for a chance to become an author. The best part: working from her home office, she gets to spend more time with her cast of crazy characters (written and real).

In her free time Norma Jeanne is a voracious reader and consumes books as readily as meals. She is a people watcher by nature and uses her experiences in life, observed or otherwise, to build the worlds and characters that thrive in her books. A believer in the strength of the human spirit, Norma Jeanne writes the stories of people that persevere when all appears to be lost.

“Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” –Dylan Thomas

Blurb:

In 1346, Princess Ophelia Dacre sneaks out of the castle to visit her boyfriend in secret. A perfect night cut short when she’s brutally murdered.

Ophelia is given the rare chance to become a grim reaper. She must become Leila Bele, cut ties with her old life, and follow the rules of the reapers. Her greatest adventure begins with death.

Excerpt:

“The scroll chose you. For whatever reason, she’s your reap.”
“Well, that sucks.” Leila chewed her bottom lip. “If I don’t do it?”
Edon hesitated before he said, “Her soul will rot inside her body. Do you have any idea what that’s like? She’ll be a living corpse, a shell of a person. She won’t feel anything including love. We as reapers, the undead, feel more than she ever will alive.”
Leila swallowed the lump in her throat. “How do you know that?”
“Because I’ve seen what it does to a person,” Edon said. “That little girl deserves better.”

Her favorite class was Creative Writing senior year where she often handed in assignments longer than the professor required because she loved to write and always wanted to finish her stories.

She loves dystopian and fantasy young adult stories. Her debut novel published by Lazy Day Publishing and Patchwork Press, ABERRANT, was released April 2013.

Luminary (Anomaly #2)
by Krista McGee
Release Date: 01/07/14
Thomas Nelson

Summary from Goodreads:
She was an anomaly with a death sentence. Now she’s free.

Thalli was scheduled for annihilation. She was considered an anomaly–able to experience emotions that should have been eradicated by genetic modification. The Scientists running the State couldn’t allow her to bring undue chaos to their peaceful, ordered world. But seconds before her death, she is rescued.

Now Thalli is above ground in a world she thought was destroyed. A world where not even the air is safe to breathe. She and her three friends must journey across this unknown land, their destination a hidden civilization. It’s their only chance of survival.

Broken and exhausted after an arduous journey, they arrive in New Hope, a town that survived the nuclear holocaust. When Thalli meets the people there–people actually “born” to “families”–her small world is blown wide open.

Soon after their arrival to New Hope, the town comes under attack. She has escaped imminent death, but now Thalli is thrust into a new fight–a fight to save her new home. Does she know enough about this world of emotions, this world of chaos, to save not only herself, but the people she has come to love?
