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 …

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 …

Blog Tour: Anew by Chelsea Fine

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 …

'The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight' by Jennifer E. Smith

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?

Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport’s cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he’s British, and he’s in seat 18C. Hadley’s in 18A.

'Glow' By Amy Kathleen Ryan

When I first started reading Glow, I had the fear that it might be too similar to Beth Revis’ Across the Universe, one of my favorite reads of the year.  I soon realized that this was not at all the case; except for the general dystopian-space vibe, they were not at all alike.  Glow takes place in the distant future, aboard two sister ships hurtling through space to colonize a new planet.  The story follows Waverly, Kieran, and Seth, three teens among the first generation conceived in space, as they …

'Shade' By Jeri Smith-Ready

I just finished reading Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready, a YA novel that I flew through and couldn’t put down!  If you are looking for a fun paranormal YA book that doesn’t shy away from some real teen situations, I highly recommend this book.
Below you can find my spoiler-free review of the novel.  Did I mention there’s a hot Scottish guy in Shade?  🙂
