Book Review: I’m Still Alive by Kelly Blanchard

-starts playing Aloe Blacc’s Back In The Saddle in the background-

It’s time to kick my butt into gear and knock these reviews out! I have this one and hopefully a review for Mina Cortez by Jeffrey Cook should be finished by tonight or tomorrow morning. I’ve been in an awful funk lately and I’m trying to force myself out of it. Bah!

Anyways! On to review!

Book Review: Blood Hound by James Osiris Baldwin

Alright, alright! I have so many reviews to get knocked out, and I’m hoping I can get quite a few done this weekend. I always feel bad when I don’t get them done in a timely manner 😦 With NaNoWriMo being over, I at least have some more time now to sit and get them written and done. I did go and mark stars on Goodreads at least for a few of them, so it is just a matter of going back and writing about them.

So, the first of many reviews goes to Blood Hound by the Dragon Awards-nominated James Osiris Baldwin.

James Baldwin is another fantastic author from the NaNo group whom I am going to smack a few times alongside Kelly Blanchard and Jeffrey Cook for severely messing with my feels.

“One of the first things every new mage learns about magic is that-despite your newly discovered powers over the universe-you are forever a struggling speck of krill in a very large, very cold, very dangerous ocean.”

Book Review: I Still Have A Soul by Kelly Blanchard

I received a digital copy of this book for free because the author is awesome while I try to get my tight finances together to buy a physical copy of the book.

We all have those moments where life just gets a little ahead of us, and that has been like the past month or two for me. It has at least calmed down enough that I can maintain flotation for NaNoWriMo. And today, I can actually sit down and work on some reviews!

Because I really really need to get them done. I have actually went on Goodreads and just starred a few of them. I am hoping when I get a chance, I can go back and expand a little more as opposed to just leaving whatever star rating I left. Hopefully I can get them done this weekend, but I am at least getting this one knocked out because it HAS TO BE.

 

“And you’re just tell us this now?”
Lorrek shrugged. “I saw no need to say anything earlier. They can’t kill me, and I  most certainly wouldn’t mind them killing the lot of you.”

Book Review: Chasing Rabbits by Erin Bedford

Trucking through right here! I had to go get some grocery shopping done. And then I had to make cookies.  Because…cookies.  Actually, I was trying out a new recipe and they are freaking awesome. The base is 2 bananas and a cup of instant oats. Then you just add whatever you want. I added in chocolate chips and dried cranberries. I kind of wish I just did chocolate. All the chocolate.. But they are still yummy. And I’m probably going to make them a million more times.

So now, that I have my cookies, I can focus on some reviews!

 

“As I began to believe in myself, in my own ability to save myself, I could feel something rising up in me. The need to save myself.”

Book Review: Barrow Fiend by Amy Hopkins

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

I finished this book a few days ago and should have had this review done ….but well….Pokemon Go. What can I say, my younger self was all sorts of on that. So I got a little distracted between that and work and forgot to write this review.

But here I am now!

“You’re serious. We just ran hell for leather away from a giant creature stalking us in the dark, and you want to go back for a look?”

Book Review: Pirate Princess by Catherine Banks

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Can I start off by saying I love this cover? Like seriously. It’s so pretty and gorgeous and oh mai gawd those eyes!

PS: I’m still on this Prednisone. I don’t think I’ve slept in a week.

“A pirate doesn’t have a destination. We just have stops along the way of the journey that is life.”

Book Review: Someday I’ll Be Redeemed by Kelly Blanchard

Have you noticed that about 99% of my reviews are from the NaNo group? Yeah, I’ve noticed too. I can’t help it I guess, it’s most of what I read lately. I really should try to sprinkle a few more book reviews by best sellers, because I do read them. I think I would rather review the self-published books/lesser known books though because it helps get those names out there!

So this book, I must let you know I received in exchange for an honest review.
I do so enjoy honest reviews.

“I like to give people the illusion they have a deciding factor in events. They tend to be more cooperative when they are given a choice.”

Book Review: Dream Stalker by Amy Hopkins

I’m a little bit behind right now, and by a little bit I mean a lot of bit. I finished this book like a week ago but circumstances have kept me from getting a chance to write a review. But I at least get to tell you a sneak peak into what I will be reviewing next! Coming up hopefully by the end of the week will be a review for Kelly Blanchard’s Someday I Will Be Redeemed and then I will be finally cracking open Madeline Dyer’s Untamed. After that I should probably finish reading Cinder (laughs).  Except, now I have NT Tupper’s new book.  Oh dear…

So anyways this is Dream Stalker: Talented Book 1 by Amy Hopkins.  It follows a half-blood named Emma who runs a tea shop in London. Not just any teas though, she sells teas enchanted with her limited magical ability and has slowly eked out a small name for herself. All she wants for herself in a peaceful life.

Unfortunately, as a half-blood, that is a little more difficult to come by.

“I’m trying my absolute damnedest for people like you, and people like Martin. I don’t want to be the person I was before, but I’m still trying to figure out what to be instead.”
