If you would be so kind, I have a tiny, itty-bity five question survey. It won’t take you two minutes to answer these questions. It’s all about reading and/or writing. I’m just trying to better understand my readers! I’d love … Continue reading
Worth The Weight (The Worth Series Book 1:The Nice One)
By: Mara Jacobs
I read this book easily in just over one and a half days. Lizzie Hampton is a very real and easy character to relate to, especially for women who have had any battle with their weight. Though this story uses some psychological aspects when it comes to eating disorders, self-control, and self-identity none of them was too heavy nor did it cause issues with the likability in the reading of the story. Lizzie has done what all women with weight issues dreams of…she’s lost the weight. Of course, she constantly weighs, measures, and scans herself for any changes. This point is the very realistic side of the character. For her not to do such things would prove unbelievable and false. Continue reading
The Shattered Door
by: Lisa Bouchard
The world is made up of telepaths and nontelepaths. There are some very powerful people who do not like the telepaths and want to bring them all down. The Telepathic Corps is getting very uncivil in their approach to taking them out too.
Darcy and Olivai Morrison, twin sisters who also have their own (new) private investigators office are closet telepaths; not that they are ashamed of what or who they are, but they do value their lives. Only it’s becoming increasingly difficult for them, and they have enough troubles already what with a asshole of a ‘mentor’ if you can call him that, a thug-boss on their behinds over a lost pet, and a load of debt with little income coming in.
To make some cash on the side they take on a job offered to them by Olivia’s boyfriend. George Wynton, the public face of telepaths everywhere has been accused of a violent crime and Darcy and Olivia must find a way to prove his innocence so he is exonerated and freed. This is their chance to prove just how capable they are as women and private investigators so they can grow their business into something viable and one capable of sustaining them. Continue reading
An Abduction Revelation
by Thomas Hay
I must admit I struggled a bit over this book. I didn’t struggle with reading it. Reading it was easy as the author made the story relatable to people, often times reminiscing about his past as he built his way to the meat of the story. Consider it an appetizer portion to the main course. LOL No, what I struggled with was whether the writer intended to make this a ‘real’ memoir, such as creative nonfiction-ish or whether it was all meant to be an attractive fantasy/sci-fi imaginative tale.
The reason why I say this is because the story is so very ‘real’ in the sense of his backstory. I could completely close my eyes and conjure up the scenery and the things he was speaking about. These memoirs are truly very realistic to a point and then you sorta start wading through the murkiness of what is fact and what is fiction. THIS is the true appeal of the entire novel. You’ve been reading so much that sounds real that when the writer throws you a curve ball you have to blink, stand back, and say…is that for real? This was the genius part to the book.

The Witch is Back by H.P. Mallory
The Witch is Back by H.P.Mallory (Book 4 of Jolie Wilkins Series)
Jolie is thrust in the her past immediately in the beginning of this novel. She is back to her Tarot Card reading days in her Los Angeles fortune-telling business. Everything is back to how it was before she learned she was a witch and things are playing its course all over again. Except this time, instead of meeting Rand first…she meets Sinjin. She immediately feels the electric chemistry, as she always had but this time she goes for it. Sinjin scares her and she is shocked to learn he is a vampire; even more shocked to learn she is a witch.
And then, in walks Rand Balfour, who she can’t help but feel as if she knows him more than she does. Sinjin, however, tells her he is dangerous…tricking her with his magic. And she doesn’t trust him one bit after that. But Rand isn’t about to give up. Not after only finally bonding before Sinjin performed the spell to alternate Jolie’s past.
If I say anymore about this book I’ll surely give away some good stuff…and as they say on Doctor Who…No Spoilers! I wouldn’t begrudge you the chance to read and experience everything for yourself. And believe me…this is one you definitely don’t want to miss! If you’ve read the first three books…this one is the one everybody has been waiting for. Sinjin gets his chance…his big role and Mallory doesn’t displease! Continue reading
It’s Nothing Personal by Kay O’Reilley
I’ve never been much of a medical drama/thriller kind of person to be honest. I’ve tried my best to get into these books but the genre just…or the writer behind the book has just never been able to grab me and hook me long enough to stick through the entire novel. Until now. OMGosh…First, the cover caught my eye and truthfully, everybody else’s eyes around me. Even my husband who doesn’t care much for reading said he wanted to read this book based on seeing the cover. LOL. Continue reading
Falling Star by CJ Wright
Meet Katie Jenkins. She, like many girls, has issues with self-confidence, wonders when a boy will look twice at her, and has a mom who works too much. But she’s different than most. She is special; at least according to her grandmother who passed away two years ago. Why, you ask? How, you wonder?
When her grandmother was alive she and Katie fooled around with tarot cards and eventually she learned how to read them herself.
“You have a gift,” her grandmother would reassure her. “There is something about you that is special, don’t be afraid of it, grasp it, relish in it.”
When her grandmother died, Katie had a remarkably weird experience. One she put behind her and never looked back at. Continue reading

Toil and Trouble by H.P. Mallory
BOOK 2 OF THE JOLIE WILKINS SERIES
The Earth Shifter by Lada Ray
With Ingredients such as deeply rooted cultures, paranormal abilities, and fantasy tinged with Sci-fi I find it hard for any avid reader NOT to enjoy such a book as The Earth Shifter!
The author opens up her novel in 1908 in which two very important men are discussing within the walls of the Vatican the coming of the prophetic ‘Key’ which is the only saving grace for the failing civilizations that thrive on our planet, Earth. A certain comet is set on its course: destination Earth and it is up to some very important beings in deciding whether they will allow the comet to continue its course or not. Continue reading
