​My review for 

The Shattered Seam

(Seam Stalkers # 1)

By

Kathleen Groger

5 out of 5 stars!
This book is amazing, I love this book.

Really looking forward to reading book # 2.

Sam has to spend her spring break with her Uncle Eric on a haunted island and castle because her parents spending their anniversary elsewhere.

Now Sam isn’t looking forward to spending all week there with her Uncle and his two best friends while they film their ghost hunting show.

Especially when she’s trying to make everyone including herself believe she is normal. For Sam see’s things that others can’t. But trying to stay normal on this island is much harder then she ever thought it would be. Soon things start happening in the castle that she doesn’t know if it’s real or not. 

Sam must come to terms with her family’s secret that she’s not just cursed but has the ability to help others. Can she save herself from a haunted serial killer and other dark spirits and her friends before the week is up?

Now even though this book is young adult it is a paranormal horror book. So beware it does have some crazy stuff that happens. But so amazing at least in my opinion.

by Kathleen Groger 

(Seam Stalkers, #1) 

Publication date: September 13th 2016

Genres: Horror, Paranormal, Young Adult
Synopsis:

Spending spring break on an isolated island rumored to be haunted is not sixteen-year-old Sam’s idea of fun. Spending spring break with her uncle and his ghost-hunting film crew on an isolated island is even worse.
Way worse.
Her family’s secrets—and a genetic ability she can no longer deny—surface, along with the ghost of a rich serial killer who left behind a trail of trapped souls.
And he’s not through yet.
With only one chance for escape, Sam must embrace her family’s curse and close the Seam between the living and the dead. Or be lost, forever.

by Jennifer Ellision 

(Threats of Sky and Sea #3) 

Publication date: September 27th 2016

Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Synopsis:

War hurtles in, a typhoon over the sea.
After Bree’s life was torn apart, Nereidium had represented a haven to her. A place that—if she could save it—was beyond the King’s reach.
And, at last, she’s arrived upon its shores. But things in Nereidium are not what they should be.
The land is plagued by a rash of mysterious earthquakes, the likes of which it’s never known. The governors are distracted by old traditions, while Bree and her friends grapple with changing identities and the sense that the longer they wait to take action… the greater the danger from Egria grows.
Bree is tired of living under the shadow of King Langdon’s power. And she’s tired of waiting for him to be the first to act.
In this final chapter of the Threats of Sky and Sea series, it all comes down to Nereidium or Egria. To Bree or the King. It’s kill… or be killed.
And not everyone will escape the battle unscathed.

My review for An Unkind Devotion By Elle Eaves.

My review for:

An Unkind Devotion

By

Elle Eaves

5 out of 5 stars!

First two pages sucked me in. It’s that great. Sophia starts having these bad dreams that she kills someone, but doesn’t remember them at first.

We learn that Sophia and her mother Catherine move around a lot. So they never seen to settle for more then 6 maybe 7 months. Catherine isn’t what you would call a very affectionate mother not really kind. So Sophia is mostly closed off to making friends due to her mother’s ways and their moving around a lot.

But when they move into a new house and town Sophia starts to believe that they may stay longer and she does make some friends things start off pretty good.

However Catherine wants Sophia to become closer with Ethan the grandson of the employer Catherine works for.

But when the nightmares start happening and stories of Ethan’s family and house start coming to surface with the secrets buried deep, can Sophia trust herself not to fall into a trap? 

BOOK DETAILS:

An Unkind Devotion by Elle Eaves 
Publication date: June 12th 2016
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

Blurb:
If your love was the trigger for a trap that would destroy everything you care about, could you cut out your heart before it was too late?

Seventeen-year-old Sophia Harden has spent her life being uprooted. She knows better than to believe her mother Catherine when she says this move to small town Grimmell, NY is their last—and at first that’s fine with her. Grimmell doesn’t exactly roll out the welcome mat, and Catherine’s calculated attempts to push Sophia on Ethan Warwick, handsome young scion of Grimmell’s first and richest family, leave both Sophia and Ethan doing everything in their power to avoid each other.

But forces neither of them is aware of are working toward a sinister goal—one that could spell ruin for both of them.

For unbeknown to Sophia, she carries within her a dark power: a curse capable of a devastation no one can recover from. And her connection to Ethan is at the core of a wicked plot for revenge that began long before her birth.

My review for Ghosts in the Machine By Richard Farr

​My review for

Ghosts in the Machine

By

Richard Farr

4 out of 5 stars.
This book is just that twisted, makes you really wonder and think could a thousand Gods just show up and show themselves?

Probably not.. But reading this book makes you feel like your in it and your living it.

For Morag Chen she can hardly believe any of this… What is it really that she is seeing? 

Can her and Daniel uncover the secrets and save him? For his mind has been taken over by these beings. 

Is there anyway to fight back and have their lives back? This book has a lot of suspense and you are questioning if they can figure out everything. Definitely check out this second book. Because I don’t want to give away any spoilers. So read it and have fun.

(The Babel Trilogy #2) 

Published by: Skyscape

Publication date: September 20th 2016

Genres: Science Fiction, Young Adult
Synopsis:

Young genius Morag Chen doesn’t believe in the supernatural. Or not until a thousand gods show up in front of her, appearing from a clear-blue sky. The Architects are terrifying, they’re hypnotically attractive, and they’re real—but what are they, and what do they want, and why have they stolen the mind of Daniel Calder, the person she is closest to?
Ancient gods? Invading aliens? Everyone has a theory, but no one has guessed the truth. In this dark, suspenseful, mind-bending sequel to The Fire Seekers, Morag picks up the narration from Daniel as she works to accept that there’s more than one way to think about the nature of humanity. And she will find that the only way forward is through secrets that Daniel himself seems desperate but unable to convey.
A mysterious lab. The house of a dying billionaire. The hidden home of a strange and forgotten people. In each of these places, Morag and Daniel will come a step closer to answers, hope, and a way of fighting back.

The Replacement Crush

By

Lisa Brown Roberts
5 out of 5 stars!
This book has lots of funny parts to it and it only took me two days if that to read it.

Great read. I found myself laughing at the different nick names people had.

Vivian finally gets to be with her long time crush over summer break. But when summer is over Jake acts like he doesn’t know Vivian at school. Later on after school Jake tells her it meant nothing to him. 

Vivian feels so heartbroken she tells her best Friend Jaz, who is so funny by the way.

That’s when Vivian vows to never fall for a guy who has great zing or that she feels chemistry with. 

There the replacement crush is started.

But when she meets Dallas a hot sweet guy, she starts doubting her mission of finding a replacement crush with no feelings.

Because Dallas isn’t just some hot guy he’s the mcnerd of guys with lots chemistry and top zing.

Can Vivian figure it out soon before it’s to late? Or will she lose her chance at figuring out who her true replacement crush is?

Read this fun, witty book.

Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn’t recovered from the teenage trauma of nearly tweezing off both eyebrows and having to pencil them in for an entire school year. This and other angst-filled memories inspire her to write YA books about navigating life’s painful and funny dramas, and falling in love along the way.
Her almost forever home is Colorado, though she occasionally pines for the days when she lived within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. Her house is full of books, boys, four-legged prima donnas, and lots of laughter.

A Mortal Song 

by Megan Crewe 

Publication date: September 13th 2016

Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Synopsis:

Sora’s life was full of magic—until she discovered it was all a lie.
Heir to Mt. Fuji’s spirit kingdom, Sora yearns to finally take on the sacred kami duties. But just as she confronts her parents to make a plea, a ghostly army invades the mountain. Barely escaping with her life, Sora follows her mother’s last instructions to a heart-wrenching discovery: she is a human changeling, raised as a decoy while her parents’ true daughter remained safe but unaware in modern-day Tokyo. Her powers were only borrowed, never her own. Now, with the world’s natural cycles falling into chaos and the ghosts plotting an even more deadly assault, it falls on her to train the unprepared kami princess.
As Sora struggles with her emerging human weaknesses and the draw of an unanticipated ally with secrets of his own, she vows to keep fighting for her loved ones and the world they once protected. But for one mortal girl to make a difference in this desperate war between the spirits, she may have to give up the only home she’s ever known.
“Megan Crewe’s A Mortal Song is engrossing from the first chapter. The world of the kami is beautifully fantastic and delicately drawn, and the switched-at-birth scenario made me instantly feel for both of these resilient, brave girls. A Mortal Song has lots of magic, lots of heart, and lots to love.” -Kendare Blake, author of Three Dark Crowns

Like many authors, Megan Crewe finds writing about herself much more difficult than making things up. A few definite facts: she lives with her husband, son, and three cats in Toronto, Canada (and does on occasion say “eh”), she tutors children and teens with special needs, and she can’t look at the night sky without speculating about who else might be out there.

When Kelly St Clare is not reading or writing, she is lost in her latest reverie. She can, quite literally, drift past a car accident while in the midst of her day dreams, despite the various police sirens and chaos. 
Books have always been magical and mysterious to her. One day she decided to start unravelling this mystery and began writing. Her aim: To write stories she would want to read. As it turns out, this failed miserably. Do you know what it is like to read something you’ve written? Impossible, that’s what. Not to mention, the ending is ruined before you’ve begun. Never-the-less, Kelly loves it and wishes she had more time to squeeze it in between her day job as a physiotherapist.
Fantasy of Frost, the first title in The Tainted Accords, is her debut novel. It’s sequel, Fantasy of Flight released May 2015. Fantasy of Fire is now available!
A New Zealander in origin and in heart, Kelly currently resides in Australia with her soon-to-be husband, a great group of friends, and some huntsman spiders who love to come inside when it rains. Their love is not returned.
