Book Review: Meridian

Book Review: Meridian

July 24, 2014 Book Review 0

Picking up where Arclight left off, Meridian takes readers on an incredible journey from the beginning to end. The Fade and the people of the Arc, after much deliberation and fighting, have come to an uneasy truce of sorts. While tensions are still running very high, these two groups know that the future of the groups depend on them working together, not against each other. When a new threat appears, it will take everything everyone has to survive. The darkness is coming… Arclight, the first installment of this possible trilogy, blew me away. The concept. The writing. Even the romance. I loved almost everything about it. With Meridian, we are back again with our characters. The Arc and its people know that time is running out for them. With a new threat on the horizon and changes within the Fade, it is only a matter of time before things crumble, not if. One aspect that was really unexpected with Meridian was the shift of the romance. With Arclight, there was tons of things going on, but some how, some way, things always tended to lead back to the romance. With Meridian, thankfully, this was not the case at all. Sure, the romance and… Read more »

Christmas in July Book Swap Reveal

July 23, 2014 Swaps 1

  I hope you all had fun picking out and mailing your swap boxes. Here is the post where you can reveal your Christmas in July Book Swap gifts! I can’t wait to see what everyone received. My partner was Terri from Alexia’s Books and Such. I was so excited when the package shipped that I checked the mail at least 3 times the day it was arriving. And yes, there it was! SO thrilling to open it up and here’s what I saw – such cute wrapping paper! And then, I tore it all off and found some awesome things! I was so excited, I love the Fables series and am trying to catch up with it and the offshoot – Fairest. The journal is hilarious, it says: Guns aren’t lawful, Nooses Give, Gas Smells Awful, Might as Well Live So funny! She also included a cute note with cupcakes on the cover, an owl bookmark and some post-its for reading. And not to mention the delicious goodies!! Yum, birthday M&Ms AND Twizzlers. I’ve already cracked them both open. Thanks Terri for being an awesome partner! An InLinkz Link-up

Book Review: The Rule of Three

Book Review: The Rule of Three

July 23, 2014 Book Review 2

The Rule of Three is a book I read on a whim. It had been sitting on my shelves for a while and I literally asked my husband to pick out my next book and this one caught his attention. I finished it in a weekend, not wanting to put it down for long. The Rule of Three is a title that fits the book, it’s a survival story of what happens when all the electricity and electronic devices stop working for no known reason. Even cars that have computers in them will no longer work. Lucky for Adam and his family, their neighbor Herb seems to have been prepared for some things and helps them and their neighborhood to find ways to keep surviving without violence. The only problem is, there are already other large groups forming and they are not as friendly. It’s only an amount of time before they have to deal with a real fight, one they don’t want to but HAVE to prepare for. Beyond the engaging story are the interesting characters. Adam loves flying and ends up finishing his small plane and getting it off ground to help find out more of what is… Read more »

Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

July 22, 2014 Top Ten Tuesdays 5

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week our topic is: Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island Listed in no particular order. Hermoine Granger – for brains and friendship. Hopefully with her we wouldn’t be on that island too much. The Darkling – to provide a nemesis with a hotness factor (I might be a sadist…) Jacky “Mary” Faber – to captain the boat that will get us off the island, and for her wonderful musical talent and hilarious ways. Hatter M – to defeat any evil things on said island and defend us all. Deuce – just in case there are zombies Sage – to get us out of a pinch (and maybe because I have a crush on him) Sean – for pure hotness factor, although if there are water horses, we’ll have a leg up on training and riding them. Noah – there should not be a deserted island without a hot British guy, for sure. And he has powers. Cath – to record our whole adventure, and I think she’d make an awesome friend that would keep me grounded Captain Thorne – this is totally… Read more »
