Hello everyone!! I should be having some reviews out within a week , but in the meantime I’m a bit excited about this post today. Like super stoked.
Today, I get to bring to you the gorgeous cover of a fantasy/SFF anthology dedicated to a wonderful cause, created and designed by Stephanie Keyes. This book contains thirteen short stories that delve through the fantasy realms as the characters face supernatural creatures and spells to do what they need to in order to succeed .
And 100% of the proceeds go to Lift 4 Autism.

I received this book for free from a random drawing.
I’m gonna make you bend and break…say a prayer but let the good times roll…
Wait…that’s not right.I’m sorry (no I’m not, I freaking love Fallout Boy). Seriously though, every time I sat down to read this book I was humming “Thnks Rr th Mmrs”. I’m actually rather sure that it was intended this way. So if any book has a soundtrack, it is this one. A lovely pop punky FOB one. 😉
“We have complex senses of smell, though, and coffee is one of the most calming scents to pick up. Another one is Earl Gray tea, which led to geeks everywhere wondering whether Captain Picard might have been a closeted vampire.”

Earlier this week, the final nominations were released for the Dragon Con Awards. This is a big thing, as I am sure many of you know, and we have THREE Wrimo authors that made it into the finals: James Osiris Baldwin (Blood Hound), JF Dubeau’s The Life Engineered, and last but not least R.R. Virdi and his book Grave Measures.
*looks at title*
But seriously though, if you haven’t yet, please register as a fan on their site, copy down your assigned number, and wait for your email. Then go and VOTE! Voting ends September 1 and winners will be announced over Labor Day Weekend.
Just once, I wished someone would leave a note behind: “This is what killed me. You’re welcome.”

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?”

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.”

I am obligated to say that I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.
Now that that is out of the way, I can be honest here.
This damn book.
Was freaking awesome.
I finished it in two sittings after my son went to bed and I just flew through it. As the late hours ticked into early ones, I really didn’t want to put it down. I needed to know what happened.
“Most people these days look without seeing, listen without hearing, and speak without words. People are lost.”
