It's Sherry Gammon Day!!!


Welcome Sherry Gammon to the blog today for DAY 15 of our Blogaversary Extravaganza!!!
Sherry has graciously offered my wonderful readers 
one AUTOGRAPHED paperback and ONE eBook of Unlovable (Port Fare #1) 

Port Fare, New York, has fallen into the clutches of true evil. The Dreser brothers have arrived with a scheme to increase drug sales in the area by whatever means possible. Seth Prescott is part of MET (Mobile Enforcement Teams) a branch of the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). He's been assigned to work undercover at Port Fare High, and things aren't going very well, until senior Maggie Brown enters the equation. He's harbored a secret crush on her from day one, and now that she is in the center of the case, he's trying to stay clear and objective while walking the line between business and unrequited love.

Maggie is truly the poster child for Heroin Chic, complete with jutting bones and dark-ringed eyes, but is she an addict, or is there another reason for her appearance? She struggles with her feelings for Seth, fearing he is just another person who will eventually let her down, as everyone in her life has done thus far.
Maggie has spent her life caring for her alcoholic mother. A task that has left her heavily burdened and alone. Before long, her mother's health takes a turn for the worst, sending Maggie's life into a tale-spin.

While Seth works relentlessly to inject fear into the dealers and flush them out into the open, Maggie fights to stay alive as the hunt turns deadly.

Seth and Maggie's romantic journey is one of humor, heartbreak, and self-discovery.

Living Violet
Cambion Chronicles #1
Author: Jaime Reed
Pages: 304
Release date: December 27th 2011

Rating: 4 Birds

He's persuasive, charming, and way too mysterious. And for Samara Marshall, her co-worker is everything she wants most--and everything she most fears. . .
Samara Marshall is determined to make the summer before her senior year the best ever. Her plan: enjoy downtime with friends and work to save up cash for her dream car. Summer romance is not on her to-do list, but uncovering the truth about her flirtatious co-worker, Caleb Baker, is. From the peculiar glow to his eyes to the unfortunate events that befall the girls who pine after him, Samara is the only one to sense danger behind his smile.
But Caleb's secrets are drawing Samara into a world where the laws of attraction are a means of survival. And as a sinister power closes in on those she loves, Samara must take a risk that will change her life forever. . .or consume it

We are proud to be on the Living Violet blog tour put on by The {Teen} Book Scene as the 14th stop with a review. Please stop back on the 14th of January for a Multi-Character Interview as well!
For all the stops on the tour please click the tour banner!

Let me start off by saying that Samara Marshall is my favorite kind of character! Funny, snarky and quick witted! She really shines and makes this book all the more better! Seriously, I giggled, and even stored some comments away for personal use…lol.

Another high point for me, as I tend to see this all the time and I tire of it so quickly is – THERE IS NO LOVE TRIANGLE IN THIS! Weeee! Okay, it’s not like I don’t like books with them, it just seems that every single books has one in some fashion. The lack of one in Living Violet is really refreshing, and shows me how strong of a writer Jaime Reed is to have a full, intriguing story with twists and suspense with out needing the added help of tossing in the love triangle. *Up Top Jaime! High Fives for you!*

Living Violet is a fantastic start to a series, I can promise you I will review the rest of. A nice NEW paranormal book that had elements to it I wasn’t expecting and had not yet seen. In a world where almost every angle has been covered for Paranormal books, this was better than great.

Character development was amazing, I never felt I was losing anyone, even the smaller, secondary characters. Almost all of which carried the same upbeat and sarcastic personality of Samara with out being redundant or over used.

If you got any cash or gift cards to a book store for the holidays I suggest popping in and picking up Living Violet! Worth the read and you won’t be disappointed!

{Book Review} My Monster Burrufu

By: | Dec 28, 2011

MMB

My Monster Burrufu
Author: Alberto Corral
Illustrator: Alessandra Sorrentino
Format: Paperback
Pages: 104
Publisher: Petite Grande Idee
Published: April 28, 2011
Genre: Children’s
Rating: 5 Birds

Seven-year-old Olivia has just moved to a new house — the same house where a lonely monster named Burrufu lives hidden in a secret attic. One night, unable to resist the smell of delicious cookies, Burrufu sneaks out and is discovered by Olivia. The two soon learn that you can find friendship in the most unexpected places. 'My Monster Burrufu' is a story of overcoming fear, a curse, and a most unusual monster who learns from a little girl how to trust his heart

Given a chance to read a children’s book, I was a little hesitant at first.  But knowing I have nieces and a nephew who will be getting into books very soon made me think “You know what, I need to read a few kids books to see what’s out these days!”

This book is incredibly cute – and from the view of Olivia who’s just seven years old, it gave me a new outlook on the way children see things.  She has to move to this strange house where she has no clue what will happen…but she’s good for anything as long as it’s with her dad. 

So a monster?  In a house?  It’s true.  But where does this monster live, and how does he get out?  Cookies are the answer in a way.  Once Olivia learns that there’s this ‘thing’ living in her house, she does whatever she can to find out what…or who…it is.  She’s such a vibrant little girl, trying to learn anything and everything she can about this monster.  All Olivia wants from this monster is to be his friend.

Can this little girl get to know a monster who wants nothing to do with the outside world?  You’ll just have to read it and find out.

I’d highly recommend this book to kids, and even to parents who want to use it for story time!  I loved reading it and seeing the illustrations!

{Book Review} Asha in Time

Asha in Time
Author: Mandy Nachampassack-Maloney
Format: eBook
Pages: 143
Publisher: Self Published
Published: May 31, 2011
Rating: 4 Birds

She was special. Her parents knew that; though it was not her sable hair, her wide amber eyes, but the fact that she had memories of things she could not possibly know. She remembered the palace of ancient Thebes, the palace pharaohs and queens had walked in. Finally, on her thirteenth birthday, she would find out where her memories were born. She would return to ancient Egypt to get her answers, but she had no idea that he was waiting for her.
She'll have to use all her wits and wiles to find her way in Egypt and into his heart without destroying herself.

Once again, thank you to The {Teen} Book Scene for this tour.  If you remember, we got to ask author Mandy what songs conveyed the feeling of Asha in Time HERE. Now we also have the privilege of posting a review. Be sure to check out all the other author guest posts and reviews on this tour by clicking the banner!

My take: A short synopsis always makes me curious…and when they use the words “ancient Egypt", it makes me even MORE curious.  So I thought, hey why not?  Good choice on my part!

Asha in Time was filled with so much mystery, desire, and everything that makes you think “how did they even manage?”  Learning this story about a girl who’s taken from one time to another as a baby, then thrown back to her original life when she turns thirteen was a strange turn of events.  And finding Solada and Fisher who are just these simplistic nobody’s that end up in this crazy world…pretty amazing.

Not only is this a story, but a telling of life from different perspectives.  The thing I think that surprised me was how differently each person sees things.  In life, people will see things differently, but from the perspective of a modern world person placed into an ancient time, it’s easy to see just how unlike her normal world ancient Egypt really is.

There’s such rich history throughout the story – from the descriptions of the different areas that each character ventures through, to the telling of religion, general beliefs and what everything really means.

Not wanting to give the story away, I think everyone should just give it a shot to see why I found this story intriguing.  It’s like solving a mystery, but finding a life, a way home, and meaning all in one. 

Ok so maybe you’re not looking at this going “I need to read this…right now.”  But at least consider expanding your horizons and put it on your TBR pile!

{Yearly Recap} Rosmelie

Top Five Books I've Read This Year

1. Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey – This book restored my love for Vampires, and though I don’t/won’t read all books about vampires, this one just did me in like no other!
2. Sister Mischief by Laura Goode – The first book I read where someone in it was a lesbian – and knew it before going into adulthood.  I loved every single thing about this book.
3. Divergent by Veronica Roth – This dystopian society book was absolutely perfect!  I completely fell in love with different characters throughout the story.
4. The Boyfriend Thief by Shana Norris – Simply wonderful, feel-good read.  And then getting a playlist to go along with it?  It was incredible.
5. Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly – Another restoration in my love for another fandom – angels, fallen and good.  Even with the lengthiness of it, I never felt a dull moment!
And shh, I’m adding a number 6!
6. Radiate by Marley Gibson – Though this one doesn’t come out until next APRIL, it was the perfect book to make me go through all sorts of emotions. The best part, it was based on a true story.

Books I Had High Hopes For But Didn't Love

Cameo the Assassin by Dawn McCullough-White – Despite having this wonderful idea, that’s all the story was…the way it was written and plotted just didn’t make much sense to me.
Lorelei and the Sirens by Aaronni Miller – I thought the concept of Sirens would be this amazing read because I love mythology – but it was kind of a letdown on how it flowed
The Sharp Time by Mary O'Connell – The name Sandinista was what originally drew me in to the story, but upon reading it…that was really the only ‘cool’ part.
Don't Fear the Reaper by Michelle Muto – The book got so boring with the main character drudging on and on about the fact she was dead.

What Blogging Taught Me This Year

Blogging has taught me to let go on reality from time to time, but not too much.  It’s taught me how not to give a review and give the book away fully at the same time.  Blogging has also made me realize – time management is necessary!  All in all, blogging taught me ways to be me, without caring if it pissed other people off.

Books I'm Looking Forward To In 2012

You know, there are about a million and one books I want to read next year, and dwindling it down was REALLY HARD!
Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg – You know you want to read it too!
The Lies That Bind (The Liar Society #2) by Lisa and Laura Roecker
Truth (XVI #2) by Julia Karr
Underworld (The Abandon Trilogy #2) by Meg Cabot
Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth
That Wedding by Jillian Dodd

Quote:

I’m actually giving two because I couldn’t choose between them:

“A friend drops their plans when you’re in trouble, shares joy in your accomplishments, feels sad when you’re in pain.  A friend encourages your dreams and offers advice – but when you don’t follow it, they still respect and love you” – Doris Wild Helmering

“Childhood is not from birth to a certain age and at a certain age
The child is grown, and puts away childish things.
Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.” – Edna St. Vincent Millay
Though it’s part of a poem, it’s become one of my favorite things to hear.

It's Lori Culwell Day!


It's day 11 of giveaways for the Blogaversary Extravaganza - can you believe it!? Today I am giving away an Autographed paperback copy of The Dirt by Lori Culwell. I love this author and her upbeat, contemporary novels - I know you will too!!!
The Dirt is her second YA novel, you can find her first, Hollywood Car Wash on Good Reads!

Lucy Whitley cannot wait to get out of Palm Desert. It’s not a place for a frizzy-haired science nerd, particularly when her fashion-obsessed older sister Sloane is the head of a clique of pretty girls who rule the school – and practically the whole town.

Fortunately, life is about to change forever. Lucy’s dad is getting re-married, and then she can transfer to a boarding school in Connecticut, escaping all the mean girls and the endless whispers about the Whitley family scandal. Everything is going to be perfect – as long as the wedding goes smoothly.

Top Five Books I've Read This Year


1. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter - Greek Gods, strange trials, twists and turns in the plot and a very attractive male love interest? Yes please!
2. Hourglass by Myra McEntire - All of your stereotypical YA-ness BUT! With characters that have personalities and an explation for insta-love!
3. Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park - I nearly died laughing at this one.
4. Wood Angel by Erin Bow - I sobbed when this was over. And three quarters of the way through it.
5. Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel - Vampires? No thanks! But Infinite Days really gives you an insight into Leah's mind and the sequel is right near the top of my to-buy list next year!

Books I Had High Hopes For But Didn't Love

 

Eve by Anna Carey - being a Dystopian junkie, I eagerly grabbed this one. Unfortunately the bland plot and cardboard characters really let it down.
Dark Eden by Patrick Carman - I was desperate to get accepted for this one on NetGalley - but the MC has the brain of a five year old and the plot is none-existent.
XVI by Julia Karr - There really wasn't much in the way of Dystopia in this. Apart from that, I don't actually remember much of it, except that it was pretty bad.

{Book Review} Flyaway

flyaway

Flyaway
Author: Helen Landalf
Format: ARC
Pages: 182
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Published: December 19, 2011
Rating: 5 Birds

Fifteen-year-old Stevie Calhoun is used to taking care of herself. But one night, her mom, who works as an exotic dancer in a downtown Seattle nightclub, never comes home.
That’s the night Stevie’s life turns upside down.
It’s the night that kicks off an extraordinary summer: the summer Stevie has to stay with her annoyingly perfect Aunt Mindy; the summer she learns to care for injured and abandoned birds; the summer she gets to know Alan, the meanest guy in high school.
But most of all, it’s the summer she finds out the truth about Mom.
FLYAWAY is the story of a teen girl’s struggle to hold on to what she’s always believed, even as her world spins out of control.

My take: Okay so I knew from the synopsis that this was one I absolutely HAD to read.  Why?  Because first of all the girl in the story is named Stevie, second, her mom has major problems (well at least from how I read the synopsis) and third?  Stevie’s forced to stay with her Aunt Mindy – who I didn’t really think could be all bad because what person is really that horrible in a book when described from the POV of a 15 year old?

The book started right in really, which was fantastic in my eyes.  It gave this sense of knowing Stevie’s life was far from perfect, and it only goes further from being perfect the more the first couple of chapters wind down.  Not only did I get to meet this girl who honestly, reminded me of my obnoxious self at that age, but this girl who’s had to learn to basically be on her own over a few years.

I think the most surprising aspects throughout the story were the people that Stevie typically surrounded herself with.  They were so like her mother’s friends that she was blind to it because she thought they were better.  Coming upon being with her Aunt Mindy, she still doesn’t see it and thinks her Aunt is just looking down on her.  What kid doesn’t feel that some adult is out to get them though…to make them feel like they’re nothing. 

The greatest thing I felt from the book came from the ending.  What happens is such a release, and a rebirth in so many ways that I was smiling (and admittedly slightly crying from happiness) that it was extremely moving.  The book is an incredibly quick read, and a great read to learning to understand the life of a teenager with a druggie mother.

Don’t forget, you can win a copy of Flyaway HERE – the contest is open to US residents and will close on 12/29.

{Character Interview} Aunt Mindy from Flyaway

0

We’d like to welcome Aunt Mindy from Flyaway to our blog today.  As part of the tour for The {Teen} Book Scene, we were able to garner a special interview with the woman who ended up taking care of her niece after abandonment left Stevie alone and uncared for.

flyaway

What made you decide that taking in your niece would be the right thing to do?

It wasn’t really even a decision – I just knew I had to do it. I’ve always loved Stevie and have worried endlessly about my sister’s ability to give her the kind of home she needs. When the opportunity came along to take care of her, I jumped at the chance to be involved in her life.

Do you see a lot of yourself reflected in others that surround you?

If you’re asking if I see myself in my sister, I’ll have to say no. June and I have always been very different. She seems to seek out trouble, where I’ve always tried to live a stable, positive life. But if you’re asking if I see myself in Stevie…well, maybe a little. I see a strength in her that I’d like to think is also part of me. People don’t realize it, but it took a lot of courage to move to Seattle on my own and start a business. I hope that Stevie will have that same kind of courage when it comes time to make decisions about where she’ll go in life.

What's the one thing of utmost importance to you?

I guess it would have to be helping things – and people – grow. I spend a lot of time in my garden because I love to care for plants, to watch them grow from tiny seeds into beautiful flowers or trees. In a way, that’s what I do in my work at the Pilates studio, too, although there it’s the bodies of my clients that I’m nurturing. In the same way, I love having the chance to watch Stevie grow and develop into a strong, intelligent young woman.

Do you believe that things are deeper then they seem?

Absolutely. I find evidence of it in my garden all the time: we only see what’s above the soil, but there’s a whole world underneath. I think that’s true of most things in our lives.

What is your biggest regret in life?

I wish I’d had a better relationship with my sister. If I had listened to her and supported her instead of always judging her and getting on her case, she might have ended up making better decisions and providing a more positive life for Stevie. I don’t know if I can ever mend my relationship with June, but I like to think that in some way I can make things up to her by being there for her daughter.

We’d like to thank Aunt Mindy for stopping by the blog today.  As a special surprise, one special follower can win a copy of Flyaway by filling out a form HERE!  Winner will be drawn at random on 12/29 – contest is open to US residents only.  Good luck!
