One Wish Away

Release Date: 11/24/14

Bloomsbury Spark

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 Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

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.

Book Blitz: Dream Boy + Giveaway

DREAM-BOY banner
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

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.

About the Author
I wrote my first book at six. A retelling of The Three Little Pigs, illustrated by my grandmother, the book was never picked up and was self-published instead, glued to cardboard with a cover fashioned from wallpaper scraps.aj matthews

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.

A Maryland native, I live in North Carolina now, but dreams of the beach fuel my fantasties, and my characters can often be found strolling in the sand or sailing along a coast.

  Declan CoverWhat they say:  ‘“You lied to me, misled me, attacked me,” Declan murmured, dipping his head toward hers, “but what we had three months ago wasn’t fake, was it?” Kate’s gaze faltered to his lips, heat pulsing between them. But she didn’t deny it. Declan Bennett has zero tolerance for thieves. He and his brothers, the Keepers, are fiercely protective of their witch, Sienna, and their privacy. 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.

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

Title: Intentional

Author: MK Harkins

Release date: June 2013

Age Group: New Adult

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Tour organized by: AToMR Tours; http://atomrbookblogtours.com

Amazon – http://www.amazon.com/Intentional-ebook/dp/B00DIESJNA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1378846032&sr=8-1&keywords=Intentional

Book Description:

What would you do in the face of the ultimate betrayal? This is the question that faces Mattie, Sarah, and Jeremy as they negotiate the often precarious game of love. In MK Harkins’s riveting debut novel, Intentional, nothing is ever quite as it seems at first glance. This story of bitter ends and new beginnings is told through the perspectives of all three of the main players, providing readers with a unique insight into the motivations and schemes of all involved.

Mattie and Jeremy are deliriously happy, engaged to be married, and looking forward to a lifetime of love. It all crumbles away, however, when Mattie comes across evidence of a massive betrayal. Unable to remain in the town that reminds her with every aching step of the love she lost, Mattie flees to Washington in an attempt to start a new life. There she meets Cade, a tattooed engineer by day and lead singer in a rock band by night. Their mutual attraction enflames Mattie, even as her heart still aches for her former fiancé. Just when it appears that Mattie may have found another stab at happiness, her past comes rushing back in the form of Jeremy himself. As events unfold, it becomes clear to Mattie that the trauma from her past may not have been quite what it seemed. Will Mattie ever learn the truth behind what really happened? And if she does, could it mean a new beginning with Jeremy, or will it be too late?

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars

My Review:
Oh my gosh, the events in this book!! While I read, I had the upper hand because I didn’t know what was yet to come. When I sign up for blog tours (months before my posting date)I make sure that I read the synopsis then, so that later on when I get the book I’ve already forgotten what it was about. I do this because I think that synopsis’s tell more than what should be told. And it’s way more fun knowing that you’re interested in the book, not knowing what the book is about.
Anyways, the events are soooo unpredictable and have you hanging onto the edge of your seat. Yet, the love story is sadly easy to guess. While reading along, the story had my head spinning and my heart jumping. The author did an excellent job at fully developing the characters. Although, there was one I particularly didn’t really feel for. And I know I’m going to be frowned upon for saying this but I don’t think that the main character, Mattie, is well-developed. My reason for thinking this is because she just seems too good. It just seemed like she did nothing but good while everything bad was coming at her. I tried hard to feel for her but it felt like I was more feeling for the event. Even though I can relate to her, she seemed too perfect and just not human enough.
The mini-battle between Cade and Jeremy.. Personally, I didn’t like the outcome. I always love a love triangle, though! Mattie has two smokin’ hot guys drooling over her. Jeremy, the lawyer, And Cade, the nerd during the day and lead singer of a rock band at night. To  be honest, I really couldn’t get over Cade. I will now declare him my new book boyfriend!!  My heart melts for nerds. But he can also sing and play guitar, he is in a band. Not just any band. A rock band. And to top that off, he has tattoos!! Need I say more?
Jeremy is so sweet! His character was the most developed. I enjoyed reading about him. I just flat out enjoyed the book. And there is no doubt that I will definitely read the next book!

About the Author

I have always been a voracious reader. After hitting
a dry spell of reading material, I decided to write the kind of book I would
like to read. This resulted in the creation of my debut novel, Intentional, with a sequel already in
the works.

When I’m not writing novels, I enjoy traveling the
world, rain, watching movies and cooking. I also run my own business in my
current hometown of Mercer Island, Washington.

Blurb (Deadly Captive, Book 1)

Lydia awakes, bound and blind, to the whispered urgings of a man who has his hands on her. His words confuse her at first, but she soon understands they are both in the middle of a performance that will determine whether she remains in captivity or dies.
The crowd must be entertained, and her cellmate makes sure it is.
Forced submission is not the only horror Lydia endures.

Blurb (Collateral Damage, Book 2)
Stolen from a bright life full of colors, happiness, and youth, Nicole Reed is dragged into a pit of pain and depravity where all she can hope for is a quick end. But her captors don’t want to kill her. They want to use her to teach a little boy whom they plan to mold in their image.
She must free him before that happens. Only she can’t stand against those who hold him, not alone. Her only hope is Vince, one of her tormentors, who may still show a glimmer of humanity.
Or maybe that’s just a trick of the light.

Tell you about me? Hmm, well there’s not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I’m not writing—which isn’t often—I’m usually watching a game or a car show while working on promo. Going out with my kids is my only down time. I get to clear my head and forget everything.

As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I’d get extra cookies if I was quiet for awhile—that’s how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.

I hope one day to prove her right.

Blog Tour/Review: Mutilate My Heart (the best book ever!)

**The blog tour is over. Due to technical difficulties, I could not get this post up on time. I’m still posting it, though. Just think of it as a little extended blog tour.**20131204-215542.jpg

Title: Mutilate My Heart (Mutilate #1)
Author: Emily Godwin
Date of Publication: July 9, 2013
Genre: contemporary YA romance with paranormal elements
Blurb:
Punk rock band Mutilated Arteries has been seventeen-year-old Becca’s world (aka obsession) for the last year. When the band schedules a concert in her hometown, she and her best friend Carli are the first ones in line to buy tickets. The night is everything she expects it to be and more, especially after making friends with the new super-cute bassist, Sketch.
Becca’s mom warns her not to fall for a rock star because rock stars are always on the road – or they die in a plane crash, like her mom’s favorite band did twenty-something years ago. But after the band’s tour bus breaks down and they’re stuck hanging out in Roizen Hills for a week, it’s hard for Becca not to fall for Sketch and his caricature drawings and toxic green eyes.
Becca knows Sketch is leaving as soon as the bus is fixed, and she can’t be his fan-turned-girlfriend anyway because of the lead singer’s “No Girlfriends” rule. Plus, there’s something strange about the guys that Becca can’t quite decipher… like how they won’t reveal their real names, their always-changing odd appearances, and the guitarist’s obsession with blood and zombies. Still, Becca wants nothing more than for Sketch to mutilate her heart…but it just might not be in a way she expects.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

My Review: This book was by far the most amazing book I’ve read since summer break! I remember when I was younger, I was signed up to this social teens site to meet new people. You could make quizzes and write little short stories for people to read. I spent hours reading the short stories on that website.. Anyways, this book totally brought back memories about those stories because it seemed just like the stories I used to read disregarding the fact that it was longer, more enticing, and bigger plot twists.

All of the elements in the book reminded me of the teenager I originally was; I loved metal, I would beg my parents to let me dye my hair all sorts of crazy colors, I went to Asking Alexandria and Black Veil Brides concerts, and still to this day I’m trying to ease my mom into letting me get the spider bite piercing before I turn 18.

The book contains an alarming amount of awesomeness, tons of hot rock/metal band members who have a weird love of zombies, and an unbelievably amazing climax! I wouldn’t die before reading this book and neither should you.
