MOVING AND GIVEAWAY! YAY!

Hey Guys!

Come and see my new blog with my very first giveaway HERE.

I hope you like it. It’s one of my favorite books! By awesome K.C Blake!

Here is the Synopsis of the Book!

The Noah sisters rule Titan High with their beauty, brains, and magical powers.

Each year they play a secret game: Crushed. The girls pick their targets carefully and blow enchanted dust into the boy’s faces, charming them, but this year Kristen makes a grave mistake. She chooses the wrong boy and almost dies that same day. Coincidence? Maybe.

But something isn’t quite right about Zach Bevian. He doesn’t behave like a boy who’s been Crushed. He goes from hot to cold, from looking at her with contempt to asking her out on a date. She doesn’t know what to think. Does he hate her or is he truly falling for her? Is he trying to kill her, or is he trying to save her?

 

I TOTALLY LOVED IT! SO STOP BY AND HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN ONE COPY!

Character Quest: Day 5



Today we’re moving on the day #5 of the Resistance Character Quest. We’re gonna be having a little chat with Michael today!





Michael’s Bio:  Guardian for Herrald’s clan, there is one word that describes Michael—confident. Some might say he’s cocky, but he doesn’t think so. A motto he lives by? “Know what you want in life then go for it.”











It’s so great to have you stop by here today, Michael. We want to welcome you and hope you can break the BUBBLE of curiosity we hold about you! On with our questions!

What’s your favorite book?


Well, I’m not a big reader, but our English teacher once made us read Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. That story has always stuck with me. Jean Valjean was a good guy, but was corrupted by a cruel world, becoming sort of heartless after a 19-year stint in prison for stealing a loaf of bread. When he finally leaves prison, one man teaches him that anyone can change from bad to good, from darkness to light. Valjean ends up doing just that. I love this kind of story. I have to believe that there is redemption for anyone, no matter what dark path they are on.

What do you miss most about high school?


I miss football the most—the guys, my coaches, my best friend, Daniel. There was something about being on that field with my offensive line, calling out plays in the huddle, hearing the crowds in the stands and the coaches calling from the sidelines that made sense to me. Everything was simpler, easier to figure out. Now, the world’s upside-down and we don’t know what’ll happen from one day to the next.

What’s a quote that would represent your life right now?


I remember this guy reciting a monologue from Henry V on Speech Night the very week before the Reapers came. His words are constantly in my head. Well, I guess they’re actually Shakespeare’s words. He said, “From this day to the ending of the world, we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.”

Yeah, that’s how I feel these days, but it goes for the girls, too. I feel tied to the Setti. We’re in this together till the end.


What is a special childhood memory?


Daniel has been my best friend since 1st grade. Even then he was a big kid. He’s always been the big kid. He’s also always been the nice guy. Well, Daniel and I lived about a block apart. When we were in 5th grade, I remember there was this middle-school bully that lived in a house between ours. What was his name, Gary or Jerry, something like that.

One day, I was waiting for Daniel to meet me at my house, and he was taking forever. So I got on my bike and rode after him. Halfway there, I see Gary what’s-his-face with two other scrawny kids surrounding Daniel, throwing globs of dirt at him. Daniel’s just standing there, taking it, even though he was bigger than all of them.

So I rush into the circle, pushing one of the kids to the ground and asked Daniel what was going on. He sort of whispered that his mom told him it was bad to fight. I told him there was always a time to fight and this was that time. It was like a light went off. Daniel pushed skinny kid #2 to the ground then punched Gary right in the nose. Gary squealed like a girl and ran off.

That might seem odd to define a “special childhood memory,” but I’m fond of it, because it was the day Daniel stood up for himself and never looked back. Yes, he was still the nice guy, but no one tried to pick on the “big guy” after that.

What draws you to Clara? Do you think she feels the same?


What’s not to draw me? Number one, there’s undeniable chemistry between us. She’s hot, and well, she seems to like what she sees in me. It’s kind of obvious the way she looks at me all the time. Number two, we’re both Guardians. We just fit in every way.

And yes, she definitely feels the same way. No doubt.

Michael your answers to these questions were certainly enlightening! Thanks so much for stopping by and spending time with us!

LAUNCH PARTY!

Resistance (Saga of the Setti, #2) by Stephanie Judice



I’m very excited to be participating in the release blast of my friend  and author Stephanie Judice’s latest book Resistance: Saga of the Setti Book 2. If you haven’t read the first book in this series, Rising: Saga of the Setti Book 1, run, do not walk, and get yourself a copy!


Title: Resistance (Saga of the Setti Book Two)
Publication Date: October 15, 2012
Publisher: StudioKae Publishers
Buying links: Amazon, Barnes and Noble



The world is covered in darkness. A constant gray pall reminds the Setti that reapers are still here—watching, waiting, hunting. Gabe, Clara, and their clan must leave the relative safety of Beau Chêne, Louisiana, in order to train with others gathering in the north. No one knows what lurks when night falls. Yet, Gabe and Clara both know that they must chance the danger in order to fulfill a dark destiny.
While Gabe grows in confidence, Clara begins to doubt everything, including her feelings for Gabe. Looming between them is a growing chasm. Clara’s constant defiance against Gabe begins to sever the bond between them. New clansman and fellow Guardian, Michael, steps in all too willingly to take Gabe’s place as her confidant and more. Good-looking and self-assured, Clara finds his charms difficult to resist. She wonders why she should resist at all.
Jessie, now a shadow scout, defies the reapers’ malevolent power. She reaches out to Clara, yearning for the impossible—to be free of the reapers’ enslavement.
Beyond Clara’s battle to save a lost loved one and to keep Gabe close to her heart, another threat stirs, whispering to Clara in the dark. Something evil hunts her. Will she listen to the one who calls to her in nightmares and eventually finds her in the flesh? Will she succumb to his will or will she cling to her human soul and her human heart?


Every day this week, you will be introduced to one of the wonderful characters from this series via a bio and then a short interview! So make sure you come back every day to learn more and more about these awesome characters.

Today, we are lucky enough to have Melanie with us!






Mel’s Bio: HEALER for Homer’s clan.  Mel is kind-hearted, patient, and wise. Her feathers are rarely ruffled, except when the boys behave too much like “boys.” She is the glue of her Setti clan.

Now that you know just a bit about Mel, let’s see what she has to say in answer to a few questions!

Melanie, thanks so much for being with us today. We are excited to have you here to answer a few of our most pressing questions! We hope you can CURE our curiosity.




1. What was your favorite subject in high school?

I liked Math the most, because I like it when problems have a definite solution. On the other hand, I also love English because stories and literature can teach us so much about life.
2. Who inspires you the most and why?

Helen Keller is truly one of my heroes. How someone can be born without sound or sight and still find a way not simply to communicate, but to teach the world such lovely, wise things is amazing to me. She once said, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched—they must be felt with the heart.” And this is so true, isn’t it?
Another thing that keeps coming to mind lately, since our world has changed into this bleak and sometimes lonely place, are these words of Helen Keller’s: “Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” No matter what is in store for us in the future, no matter how desolate and dark things become, we must remember
the wisdom of this woman who lived her whole life in the dark.
3. In your Setti clan, who is the most difficult to live with and why?

I would have to say it is a tie between Jeremy and Ben. For some reason, those two love to push each other’s buttons, and sometimes it is so tiresome to listen to their tedious arguments back and forth. However, for the most part, it is not difficult living with my friends at all. I treasure each one of them for their special gifts and for their devoted friendship. They are a family to me.
4. What’s a quote that would represent your philosophy on life?

“It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.” –Mark Twain
5. If you could have a theme song, what would it be?

Interesting, because Jeremy has asked me the same question so many times, and I refuse to give him an answer. But I will tell you.
My Gram used to play these old records when I was little. Yes, actual records on a record-player if you know what those are. And I think one song has seeped into my subconscious. “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong really reflects how I see the world. I wish everyone did, even now, with our future so precarious. It still is a wonderful world.

Mel, thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. It was a lot of fun having you here!


Stop by again tomorrow as we welcome Ben to the blog to let us in on some of his most intimate secrets!

Dark Fever (Fever #1)

by Karen Marie Moning

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Published: October 1st 2006 by Delacorte Press

Rating: 4 amazing stars!

Synopsis: MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman.

Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.

When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae….

As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….

MY REVIEW:

A very good book! I found it thanks to a recommendation of a friend. I was not very sure at first, because Fae are not something that really amuse me. But this book proved me wrong.

The beginning is SLOW in my opinion, it’s like nothing really happens but after 35% it gets interesting.

The writing is remarkable and never boring. Descriptions are everywhere and for every taste.

We have several characters but the main ones are Mac and Barrons.
Mac is an extraordinary protagonist, she surprises the reader over and over and ends up being a kick ass heroine, not the blond bubble-head that we meet at the start of the book.

Barrons, WOW, I just love him! He is intriguing and I’m looking forward to finding out what he is. (I have a some ideas, but let’s see what happens)
Definitely my favorite character.

The plot is complex and here we just see the tip of the iceberg.
The only thing I would criticize is the “sexual” scenes that made no sense to me. (they could have been developed differently). Let’s be clear, they were so few so It’s not big deal. Anyway the series is called “Fever” so yes, I was expecting steamy moments but it’s like they came out of the blue!

Anyway it’s a very promising start to a series! Can’t wait to read more of it!

And here is the other cover that personally I love 🙂

Hello world!

Well I’ve had this idea in my mind for a while now and as this one is officially the “Why not?” week, I decided to give it a try.

I’m not a blogger nor a writer so please be patient with me! I promise I’ll get better at this 😉
