House Hunting.

Good day everyone.

Don't Judge, Read: House Hunting, E.A. WalshBlogging is going to be slow this week. I'm currently out of town looking for a new place to live. As it goes with being in the military, there are times that I get uprooted and moved to a different province. In this case I'll will be moving from Ontario to Nova Scotia.

But, do stop by tomorrow for my day on the Remembered (The Vistira Trilogy #1 blog tour. I will posting my review and an interview I did with the author E.D. Brady.

I will try to get some spotlights in, and maybe a news post or two, but my time will be focused on finding a place to live. A daunting task I don't like no matter how many time I do it.

Wish me luck!

And don't for get to check out my post on the Remembered tour.

Happy Reading

Review Update! The Dead Days Journal

The Dead Days Journal : Volume 1The Dead Days Journal : Volume 1
By: Sandra R. Campbell
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

( I received this book free from the author in exchange for my honest review )

3.5 Stars

I'm on the fence about this one. There are a lot of aspects I liked and a lot I didn't. Though it was an interesting read, I'm not sure if I actually liked this book or dislike it. It's hard to put down in words. I believe it's because I went into this book with a different image, (one I gather from the book cover and synopsis), thinking one thing and getting another. In any case it was misleading. (I seem to be getting a lot of those lately)Despite all that, this read did keep my interest.

My Writing Progress.

I have finally buckled down and have started properly writing the novel I have been pasting together for over a year now. Pasting as in, writing down ideas here and there, research, timelines, and random character dialogue, sometimes I just get a good convo going,in my head, and I have to get it down before I forget it.

As for the book titile, I haven’t gotten the final name yet. Maybe I'll do a poll and get you guys to decide, or I'll just stress over it, until I drive myself nuts, close my eyes and, pick.

Last night I was playing in photoshop for book cover ideas, and I ended up staying up a bit too late. Time flies when you’re trying to figure out what font to use.

It's time I make my dream a reality. I will be posting a progress tracker in the side bar.

Wish me luck!

Review Update! Rebel Moon

Rebel Moon: A Grazi Kelly Novel #3Rebel Moon: A Grazi Kelly Novel #3
By: C.D. Gorri
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

( I received this book free from the author in exchange for my honest review. )

I am raving. This book topped its predecessors in all aspects of how a story should be told. The constant struggle for Grazi to accept what she is and trying to keep her beliefs strong, is heart breaking. She has to take in, process so much, so fast, while trying to weed out the fact from fiction. Her emotions are run on high, and with no one to really talk to about it, she’s lost, confused and is still unsure of who to trust.

While mourning the loss of a mother figure, Elizabeth Blake, a smart but socially introverted seventeen-year-old girl from Ann Arbor, Michigan, enrolls in an international school in the south of France to finish her final year of high school. Here she meets her true love, finds out that she is a witch from an ancient family, and discovers that her life is in danger.

Meanwhile, the Elders—the most powerful coven of witches in the world—have been tracking Elizabeth since her birth. According to an ancient legend, a battle led by “One barely born existing to lead” will cause the downfall of the Elders. Fearing that Elizabeth is the heir to this legend, the Elders try to destroy her before she can fulfill the prophecy.

With the help of her new friends, Elizabeth must travel to Greece to try and prove to the Elders that she is not a threat and to ask for their permission to exist in peace.

With the prospect of having to leave each other once the school year ends and return to their homes on opposite sides of the world, Elizabeth and her new love have to find a way to stay together. However, a rival love interest discovers their plan and causes the Elders to act against Elizabeth.

Review Update! Let it Bleed

Let It Bleed (Lucy Collins #2)Let It Bleed
By: Francis Yamoah
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

( I received this book free from the Author in exchange for my honest review. )

Let’s start with the truth, shall we.

When I first started reading this book, I didn't like it. It didn’t draw me the way it should have and I felt my eyes wonder. I wasn't reading the words so much as I was thinking, this isn't going to be an easy read. It felt choppy and underdeveloped, like uneven stepping stones.

I'm so glad I stumbled through the opening.

As painful as it was to get through those first few paragraphs, when I did I was hit with a much steadier story and solid foundation. Think of it like walking up to a hard looking house. The walk way is hard to navigate, the steps are sketchy and you're sure you’re going to fall through. But it's all for not when you enter the house and it’s simply put, blinding.

Review Update! Fairy Tail Vo.l 9

Fairy Tail, Vol. 09 (Fairy Tail, #9)Fairy Tail, Vol. 09
By: Hiro Mashima
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!!!!

This is probably one of my favoured parts of the whole series, manga or anime.

When I started this series I was on the fence about Lucy. But after this volume, I'm impressed and now on team Lucy.

She showed her overpowering hateful father that she doesn't want his money, she wants to work, she wants to travel, and she will not stand for someone, even family, hurting her comrades/friends/new family.

Review Update! Five Wounds

Five WoundsFive Wounds
By: Katharine Edgar
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

( I received this book free from the author through Goodreads group {All about YA}[R2R] in exchange for my honest review )

I'm on the fence about this one.

I found the story interesting and a bit fascinating. It flowed very well, and stayed on point, but I'm not raving over it.

Nan, annoyed the hell out of me. For a girl that was raised in a nunnery, she's basically a harlot. Not so much as she slept around, but every damn second, that she came out of that nunnery, she was having crushes left right and center. I don't even know what to called it.

Ruth Rendell, crime novelist and politician, 1930-2015

By: Barry Forshaw

Ruth Rendell With the death of Ruth Rendell at the age of 85, five months after her friend and fellow writer PD James, each of the women who in collegiate fashion shared the title of Britain’s queen of crime fiction is now gone. But of the two, both members of the House of Lords, Rendell was the edgier, more astringent novelist, more prepared to take the reader into truly Stygian territory.

The era when women writers furnished unchallenging Home Counties mysteries, while male writers handled the more violent, disturbing fare, is fading. These days, female crime novelists leap in to examine the darkest recesses of the human psyche. The progenitor of this sea change in the UK was Rendell, who incorporated layers of psychological realism into her crime fiction.
