Blog Tour/Review: One by Leigh Ann Kopans

One, by Leigh Ann Kopans, is a refreshing new young adult novel that twists fantasy and science fiction into a dreamy comic-novel for both guys and gals.  Let me explain, I love the idea of comic book super heroes, but I don’t actually read comics.  I love to watch the Marvel movies, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, X-Men… All these men!  While some prefer a lot of action with a sprinkle of plot, One is a great option for the novel reader who wants a dash of superhero.
I read One with the …

The Trouble With Fate & an Interview with Leigh Evans

I feel like I have been waiting forever to share this book with you! I was given the opportunity to read THE TROUBLE WITH FATE by Leigh Evans about a year ago when it was still in the process of being published by St. Martin’s, and I fell in love with the story and the characters. Hedi is one of those chicks that I completely loved to read. Her voice was refreshing and totally kicka** to be honest, which is much like the author once you get to know her. Evans …

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Hello, new epic fantasy called Falling Kingdoms, by Morgan Rhodes!  I am having a love/hate relationship with you right now, but love you more than I hate you… I could not imagine getting into ANOTHER series right now, although this series promises to have twisting plot lines with the vast array of characters you can’t help but relate to. There are royal families, peasants, sorceresses, and savages!
The story comes across as a simplified version of Lord of the Rings, with more heart-wrenching romances that appeal more to a female audiences. The …

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 …
