                       "MY REVIEW"

No words can be put into place in my mind but I will try. I found this story very adventurous, but I am upset at myself that didn't read the first 2 before reading the 3. So please read the first 2 and don't make the mistake I made. I love this trilogy and many dystopian readers might enjoy it as well. I haven't been exposed to this type of read but boy was I excited. I went into this book blind and not knowing what to expect. Its one of those books you gotta go into blind because it will really makes you think about what is happening, what is going to happen, and why it is happening. At first when I got the book I looked at it for several days not really wanting to read thinking I made a mistake.(I didn't). What an amazing and totally captivating read its my cup of tea. Rebels is a good book that I am going to reread and ask my fellow book club members to read it as well. Cover (4/5), author (4/5) synopsis (3.9/5).

                            "MY REVIEW"


Telling my honest opinion I didn't think this was my cup of tea. I now realise what was I thinking. This book is very pleasant. Mr. Dennis I liked you book. It could be a little longer or should have sequels or a trilogy. When I first saw the book I didn't want it to know anything about it. The suspense giving was a gripping plot that I enjoyed. Danny was my favorite of them all. I like everything about his personality and more to add. No bad. Not bad. The therapist being kidnapped was so amusing. You will indeed be on your toes for this

"About The Book"
When two boys find a body in their childhood hang out, they decide to have some fun, but get more than they bargained for.


"My Review"

So this book was different. The story was okay but to much swearing. This book is really meant for +18 because of the language. Telling my honest opinion I was more than trilled to read this book. It is not at all what I thought. The storyline was great but as I was reading I made a note (TO MANY SWEARS) That I wasn't fond of but I liked the book. It felt to short and needed a bit more details to make a little adjustments. Not bad. I would like to see the final result.

                 "ABOUT THE BOOK"

Bridget has given up her career as an attorney to raise her daughter, joining a cadre of stay-at-home mothers seeking fulfillment in a quiet suburb. But for Bridget, some crucial part of the exchange is absent: Something she loves and needs. And now a terrifying presence has entered her home; only nobody but Bridget can feel it.

On a farm in 1902, a young city bride takes a farmer husband. The marriage bed will become both crucible and anvil as Rebecca first allows, then negates, the powerful erotic connection between them. She turns her back on John to give all her love to their child. Much will occur in this cold house, none of it good.

                       "MY REVIEW"
I adore Siobhan Adcock as a author. Her book was amazing. I was first interested when I was in a live chat with the author on the Penguin website. This book was just like a movie called "Lise My Mother Told Me" because of the drama and suspense that happened. Reading the first few pages and chapters were alright be getting into the middle is where its at. I love that there were two different stories to learn and know about. Cover (5/5). Authors writing style (4/5). Details (5/5). Over all grade (look below).

                "ABOUT THE BOOK"

"All things are composed of patterns..." And within the pattern of the realm of Alorin, three strands must cross: In Alorin three hundred years after the genocidal Adept Wars, the realm is dying, and the blessed Adept race dies with it. One man holds the secret to reverting this decline: Bjorn van Gelderan, a dangerous and enigmatic man whose shocking betrayal three centuries past earned him a traitor's brand. It is the Adept Vestal Raine D'Lacourte's mission to learn what Bjorn knows in the hope of salvaging his race. But first he'll have to find him. 

In the kingdom of Dannym the young Prince Ean val Lorian faces a tenuous future as the last living heir to the coveted Eagle Throne. When his blood-brother is slain during a failed assassination, Ean embarks on a desperate hunt for the man responsible. Yet his advisors have their own agendas, and his quest for vengeance leads him ever deeper into a sinuous plot masterminded by a mysterious and powerful man, the one they call First Lord. 

In the Nadori desert tormented by the missing pieces of his life, a soldier named Trell heads off to uncover the truth of his shadowed past. But when disaster places him in the debt of Wildlings sworn to the First Lord, Trell begins to suspect a deadlier, darker secret motivating them. Honor-bound to serve the First Lord in return for his life, Trell continues on his appointed path, yet each day unveils new and stranger secrets that eventually call into question everything he knows.




   
                                         "MY REVIEW" 

So I was very excited to read this book when it came in the mail. I was super happy it was signed by the author but it was roughly thick, but I managed to read it off. The tale of this book was good. The author was very descriptive but the novel/book could have been a little shorter. The legacy and the story-line was like no other. The cover was beautiful and the author WHOA. Great book to read. Bring snacks and prepare to your imagination to the fullest. Cannot wait to review book #2 (coming soon)

                     "ABOUT THE BOOK"

Dinah, the former Princess of Wonderland Palace, has been chased into the wilds of Wonderland after the brutal murder of her brother and the ruin of her impending crown. Now, as her half-sister Vittiore sits on the throne beside her Father, the brutal King of Hearts, Dinah finds herself alone in the forbidding Twisted Wood with only Morte, a homicidal beast, for company.

Hunted by the King and his army of Cards, Dinah struggles to evade those who long for her head, including Cheshire, the King’s clever advisor, who is slowly tightening his grasp around her. Spurred on by her rising terror, the former Princess finds herself at the center of a web of conspiracy reaching far beyond the Palace and deep into the mysterious Yurkei mountain tribes.
Even with the balance of an entire Kingdom at stake, Dinah knows something that her allies and enemies do not: that the most dangerous conflict of all has already begun as she battles the enticing rage that beckons her ever closer as love slips further from her grasp.


                      "MY REVIEW"

Let me just say Ms. Colleen what an amazing read. Truly I have to add this to my all time favourite list of books. This twisted book that had so many juicy details in it. WOW. The characters fit the scenery of everything. The main charcter was my favourite (Dinah). Her personality was beautifully intelegent. I have never read a story like this and I must read others in this series. Good book to read when your bord and looking for some fun and adventure. This story reminds me of "Ella Enchanted" and "Alice In Wonderland". So many captivating this about this book but my favourite part would have to be "Chapter 12" I quote "All she heard was the crashing and breathing, alternating with each step. Twigs and branches breaking and snapping as she plunged through the Yurkei orchard, far away from Cheshire, far away from everything he had said". Amazing or what.

                                           Format-Paperback



                "ABOUT THE BOOK"

With pitch-perfect honesty and heartwarming humor, this captivating debut explores marriage, motherhood, identity, and what it takes to love someone—family members, friends, or spouses—for life.


Former folk singer Helen Sear was a feminist wild child who proudly disdained monogamy, raising three daughters—each by a different father—largely on her own. Now in her sixties, Helen has fallen in love with a traditional man who desperately wants to marry her. And while she fears losing him, she’s equally afraid of abandoning everything she’s ever stood for if she goes through with it.

Meanwhile, Helen’s youngest daughter, Liane, is in the heady early days of a relationship with her soul mate. But he has an ex-wife and two kids, and her new role as a “step-something” doesn’t come with an instruction manual. Ilsa, an artist, has put her bohemian past behind her and is fervently hoping her second marriage will stick. Yet her world feels like it is slowly shrinking, and her painting is suffering as a result—and she realizes she may need to break free again, even if it means disrupting the lives of her two young children. And then there’s Fiona, the eldest sister, who has worked tirelessly to make her world pristine, yet who still doesn’t feel at peace. When she discovers her husband has been harboring a huge secret, Fiona loses her tenuous grip on happiness and is forced to face some truths about herself that she’d rather keep buried.



                            "MY REVIEW"



I really enjoyed it and the moral,  your never to old to fall in love. I love that there was complication in her daughters life to show nothing's perfect. As humans we all go threw trial's and tribulations but we can overcome that and rise to the occasion. Brilliant book this story really has meaning to life and it really relates to life.  Wonderful job Ms. Marissa. 







               "ABOUT THE AUTHOR"

                         "PRAISE"



Interweaving the alternating perspectives of Helen, her daughters, and the women surrounding them, “each new chapter brings a wise and tender look at single life, dating rituals, and marital unease” (New York Timesbestselling author Jennifer Close). In this “absolute feat of storytelling” (bestselling author Grace O'Connell), Marissa Stapley celebrates the many roles modern women play, and shows that even though happy endings aren’t one-size-fits-all, some loves really can last for life.

New Changes in November

Hello my readers.

                                    So I will be doing some new changes to my blog for the month of November. As a early Christmas present/treat I will be posting book reviews for 30 days straight in a row. What? That's right you heard me correctly. As you know am a avid reader and what I am going to do is do all my assignments ahead of time so I will have time to read and stay active on my blog. Things that will be coming to my blog are "Blog Tours", "Excerpts", "Cover Reveals" and of course "Book Reviews". I am deciding to just read and have fun so my TBR will over stress me. So for the month of December is my birthday month and I will be posting reviews but its not a large amount. I think I am up for the challenge of 30 days because these books I read, am reading, or going to be read. I have also changed up the look because of the seasons and now that Thanksgiving is coming, I will be changing a few things around. I will also be adding books that will be coming to my blog soon so you will already know whats to come. Make sure you subscribe to my blog to get some wonderful book reviews I have planned. From now on at the beginning of each month (if there might be changes) I will be giving monthly news that will take place. I also might be posting more than on post(max.2). Don't worry I am not over stressed and I can take up the responsibility. Very excited for you to see what I have planned. EEEPP!!!!! Thanks to all my subscribers, publishers, readers, and audience for so much support and I have more than 1,000 page views. Whoa. A major milestone in my life and I could not be more thrilled.

Cattle Kate Excerpt

                                  22213406

                                                                              Paperback
                                                Published October 7th 2014 by Poisoned Pen Press

Ella Watson is the only woman to be lynched in the nation as a cattle rustler. She and her husband were hanged on July 20, 1889, by prominent cattlemen. History portrays the lynching as a case of “range land justice,” with “Cattle Kate” tarred as both a notorious rustler and a filthy whore. Is this sordid story true? 

It was all a lie. She wasn't a rustler. She wasn't a whore. She was a 28-year-old immigrant homesteader murdered by her rich and powerful Wyoming cattle-baron neighbors who wanted the land and its precious water rights she’d refused to sell. She was never called “Cattle Kate” until she was dead and they needed an excuse to cover up their crime.

Some people knew the truth from the start. Their voices were drowned out by the all-powerful Wyoming Stock Growers Association. And those who dared speak out—including the eye witnesses to the hangings—either disappeared or mysteriously died. There was no one left to testify against the vigilantes when the case eventually came to trial, so it was dismissed. Her six killers walked away scot-free.

Dozens of books, movies, too, spread her ugly legacy. Now, on the 125th anniversary of her murder, Ella comes alive again in the novel Cattle Kate to tell her heartbreaking story, one central to the western experience.

Cover Reveal

The Poisoned Pen Pen is revealing Choas Thery by M. Evonne Dobson.


"Cover"


Seventeen-year-old Kami is into science, way smarter than she should be, a little obtuse, and born to investigate. The kind of girl who excels in Martial Arts and runs a chaos theory experiment in her locker. Kami finds a way to focus her talents when she meets Daniel, whose younger sister Julia died from an overdose of prescription drugs—drugs that the cops think came from Daniel’s stash.
Kami assembles a team of sleuths to help Daniel find the real drug dealers. Top of the list is her best friend Sandy, who can con anybody out of anything, every time. Sandy’s boyfriend Sam, editor of the school newspaper, is researcher in chief. Then there is gorgeous Gavin, a computer genius whose abilities to help are hindered by the fact that he’s already in trouble with the cops for hacking.
The trail leads first to a skate park, then the local stables, where Julia kept a stash of drugs. The team uncovers a link to the real suppliers. Kami disguises herself as an intern to infiltrate the pharmaceutical company that made the drugs that killed Julia. But it turns out she’s not the only undercover agent on the trail of murder.

"The Author"

When Meg graduated from college, someone advised her to make a list of things she wanted to do in life and where she wanted to live, and then go do it. She did them all in record time, because that’s what she does. The summer after college she tried hot Arizona, where she groomed and harnessed International Polish Arabian Champion horses in exchange for riding time. Dehydrated from the heat, she returned to Iowa, where she worked as an assistant manager at a western tack store. She still loves the smell of leather.

Diving back into knee-deep horse manure, she next managed a riding academy in North Carolina, with ten school horses and more students than she could count. Much as she loved the students, the bitter cold drove her to seek better pay, with benefits. She took a job that let her work with her second joy in life—books—as the manager, with a warm and toasty office, of the largest B Dalton Bookseller between DC and Atlanta. Life took her to Illinois before returning her to Iowa where she still lives. She also has a writing studio in Scottsdale, AZ.

These days her family is her first love, but horses and writing remain close seconds. She lives in the country on six acres with a beautiful horse she trained herself, a slightly neurotic blue merle Shetland Sheepdog, and a ghost cat that no one sees but her. Occasional tenants include her sister’s Norwegian Fjord horse, a blue heron, a red-tailed hawk, a family of hoot owls, several deer, coyotes, and raccoons. She loves it.

Rollover by Susan Slater Excerpt

A bank heist turns sleepy little Wagon Mound, New Mexico, on its ear. It’s no straight-forward, “demand all the money at gun-point and hustle out the front door” kind of robbery. It’s a sneaky tunneling that probably took months to complete and landed the thieves in a room of safe deposit boxes—not the vault with two million bucks for a ranch sale next door. Was this some mistake, or was the thieves’ target the Tiffany-designed sapphire and diamond necklace belonging to eighty-five year old Gertrude Kennedy, a family heirloom from the days of the Titanic?
The necklace is insured with United Life and Casualty for half a million. The company sends their ace investigator, Dan Mahoney, a Chicagoan still in New Mexico recuperating from events in Flash Food, and romancing the intrepid Elaine Linden, to the scene of the crime. Delayed when his Jeep overheats, Dan catches a ride and is the hapless passenger in a rollover that kills the driver and lands Dan in Santa Fe’s hospital.
Dan soon learns the rollover was no accident. Someone wants him kept out of Wagon Mound at any cost. Dan hasn’t lived his life looking over his shoulder and he’s not starting now. But when Elaine disappears and people close to the case, like the bank’s manager, turn up dead, he suspects there’s more going on than a robbery. The note slipped under his rented room’s door in the dead of night says it all—“it’s not what you think”.” Fast-paced from first to last, Rollover combines the murder mystery with the caper for a captivating read.

This is a captivating read. I wished I would have read Flash Flood first, but I wasn't disappointed at all. This book was so good I had to re-read as I type.

This will be good for any age if you want to read a good mystery or long to read one. The details she described no one couldn't imagine they were in it. Writing style (5/5), cover (5/5), and author (5/5).

                        "MY REVIEW"



In all I really enjoyed the story. The story line was good. Believable yet explanatory.No word's can truly express that. I recommend this book to everyone. I wasn't disappointed and you won't be either. I couldn't put this book down because of the content this author dedicated her time to do. Writing style was amazing. I was kind of ency to read it at first but boy was I wrong. It's one of those book that you try to explain but there no word but EXCELLENT!!!!!!! 

        





Brandy Vallance




                       "ABOUT THE AUTHOR"




Brandy Vallance fell in love with the Victorian time period at a young age, loving the customs, manners, and especially the intricate rules of love. Since time travel is theoretically impossible, she lives in the nineteenth century vicariously through her novels. Unaccountable amounts of black tea have fueled this ambition. Brandy hopes to avoid a similar fate as the writer, Honoré de Balzac, who met his death via caffeine poisoning. At this point, the balance may not be tipped in her favor. Brandy's love of tea can only be paralleled by her love of Masterpiece Theater Classics, deep conversations, and a good book.
