Dance the Moon Down by R.L. Bartram

Synopsis from Amazon UK:
In 1910, no one believed there would ever be a war with Germany. Safe in her affluent middle-class life, the rumours held no significance for Victoria either. It was her father’s decision to enroll her at university that began to change all that. There she befriends the rebellious and outspoken Beryl Whittaker, an emergent suffragette, but it is her love for Gerald Avery, a talented young poet from a neighbouring university that sets the seal on her future. After a clandestine romance, they marry in January 1914, …

It was a great relief to finally get my hands on The Eternity Cure, by Julie Kagawa. Kagawa definitely knows how to leave the reader hanging, and after reading The Immortal Rules I was itching to find out where Allie would end up. The second novel in The Blood of Eden Series didn’t have as much world building to hash through, and got down to business immediately.  This grabbed me from the first page, and I was hooked all the way to the “end”.
Allie’s story takes a turn in the …

A Royal Pain by Megan Mulry

A Royal Pain, by Megan Mulry, is a fun romance full of British accents, snarky language, and sensational settings.  Bronte Talbot is lovable from the start of the story.  Her desire to find love, and a balance between that love and her career is relatable and endearing.  Meeting up with Mr. Texas seems like a dream come true, until their relationship moves out of the bed and into a daily routine.
Bronte is at a loss when the relationship ends, and has lost all hope of ever having a balanced love …

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

~
I give Throne of Glass 5 books on my bookshelf!  Not only is it one more amazing YA series that seriously has me thinking it would be cool to be an assassin, but it is full of rich characters with captivating stories.  While Maas has a love for fairy tales, her work has the strength of an epic fantasy.  If you enjoy stories like Rift (by Andrea Cremer), Grave Mercy (by Robin LaFevers),  Legacy of Tril: Soulbound (by Heather Brewer), and Graceling (by Kristin Cashore) you will honestly be captivated …

Blog Tour: Anew by Chelsea Fine

INTERVIEW
Hi Chelsea!  We are very excited to learn more about you and this amazing series you’ve written!
1. Taking a look at ChelseaFineBooks.com, we have found that you are a fantasy/romance junkie that is obsessed with the CW (formerly WB)… What books and television shows have been an inspiration to you over the years?
Chelsea: Great question. I love talking about TV shows! 🙂 The most influential television show in my adult life (I’m assuming my childhood obsession with Scooby-Doo doesn’t count) would have to be Smallville. Ahhh! 🙂 I’m a total Superman …

Origin by Jessica Khoury

ORIGIN excerpt:

My dreams are tangled around each other like plants vying for the best spot in the sun. They strangle each other in their attempt to get the better of my reason. I know which one I truly want – I’ve wanted it all my life. But I’m being overtaken by a new desire, a raging, unpredictable dream that could destroy everything I’ve worked for. (Origin, page 99)

Origin, by Jessica Khoury, is tame and wild all at the same time! I give Origin 4 books on the bookshelf!

Thoughts from Jessica:
In …

Tiger's Destiny by Colleen Houck

 
We have some great thoughts on Tiger’s Destiny, the fourth novel in Colleen Houck’s Tiger Series!  Krystal, Kelly, and I (Kallie) have read all but the last few chapters of the book, and Stefanie has opted not to read it until she can get her hands on the entire novel on September 4, 2012.  We hope you enjoy our review, and come back for the full reviews after we’ve each read the complete novel.  If you love this series as much as we do, check out TheTigerSeries.com for our podcast …

They want to kill Jason Hancock, the man they blame for their mother’s death.
It’s going to take a concerted effort to lure the aquaphobic Hancock onto the water. Calder’s job is to …

Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins

TEMPTATION by Karen Ann Hopkins had everything that I tend to be drawn to in a guilty pleasure book. I am freakishly drawn to books having anything to do with the Amish so, when I saw this title, I knew that I had to read it. Here’s the synopsis from Amazon:

Your heart misleads you. That’s what my friends and family say. 
But I love Noah.
And he loves me.
We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in …

Blog Tour: Fated by Alyson Noel

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Fated is the first novel in the The Soul Seekers Series by Alyson Noel.  The story begins with Daire, a teenage girl traveling the world with her Hollywood make-up artist mother.  As far-fetched as that may sound, add in the fact that Daire is seeing bloody heads on stakes and swarms of ravens, and it’s a doozy of a paranormal YA novel to follow.
As Daire goes mental the only alternative to being admitted into a mental institution is to move in with a long-lost grandmother… in the desert. …
