#BookBlast: Food for a Hungry Ghost Tour #PromoBookTours

Food for a Hungry Ghost 1

Food for a Hungry Ghost 2
Food for a Hungry Ghost


Life was pleasantly normal for Gala Rhyce—that is, until her mom moved the family to Flagler Beach, Florida. Now—despite the palm trees, ocean breezes, and cute surfer guys—Gala is miserable…until she meets Trista. Trista makes a great friend, except for one thing: she's a ghost.

The girls learn to communicate, and through Gala, Trista finds a way to experience the world again. As Gala’s romance with a heartthrob poet begins to bloom, her unlikely friendship with Trista continues—until the ghost wants more than Gala can give, and things start to go horribly wrong.

Filled with horror, romance, and humor, Food for a Hungry Ghost is about friendship, trust, jealousy, and boundaries that get pushed too far.

How much can Gala endure? Will she survive the clutches of the Hungry Ghost?

#LiteraryAddicts - Stalker Day!

Literary Addicts

Let me introduce you to one of the many authors that I stalk

Stephanie Nelson

Stephanie Nelson


I have read three of Stephanie's books. The first two are from the Gwen Sparks series and the third book is called Taming the Wolf. You can check out all of her books on her website at http://www.stephanie-nelson.com/.

CravedDeceived


The first one I read was Craved. This is the first Gwen Sparks book which sets up the series. We learn that Gwen is a very special witch with the ability to see into dead people's last moments. What else makes her special? She's dating a vampire. This particular story gives you insight into how supernaturals fit into our world as well as keep themselves separate. It continues in book two Deceived with Gwen being sent back to the witch haven/school she attended while growing up. The witches are under attack by vampires who want to get high off of their blood. Gwen has to figure out how to keep her vampire lover and wage war against his race. Both are amazing books! You can read my reviews of both HERE.

Buy Craved - Amazon Paperback, Kindle Book, Nook book, and B&N Paperback.

Buy Deceived - Amazon Paperback, Kindle Book, and Nook book. Check out the third book in the series (which I really really need to read): Coveted - Kindle Book, Amazon Paperback, and Nook book.

Taming the Wolf


The third book I read was Taming the Wolf. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. I loved it so much that I was inspired to start writing my own series. Now don't think that I thought I could write a book better, because I seriously doubt my story even comes close. I just loved this story. I was dreaming about it every night while I read it and after I finished it for like two weeks. By the end of two weeks, I had my own story line dreamed up (literally). Taming the wolf is about Anna Avery. She is recently turned into a werewolf, left for dead on the side of a mountain. Adam finds her and takes her into his pack where she is the bottom of the totem pole until she can work her way up the ranks. It just so happens that she feels like an equal to her alphas. She poses a threat to Eve, the alpha female. I am not going to go into the entire story, but you can read my review HERE.

Buy the Kindle book, Amazon Paperback, and Nook book.

Player 1

Player 2
Player


Joshua Hanover had it all. He was handsome, rich, athletic, and had always been popular with the ladies. Yet, until he gets paired up with his beautiful but shy lab partner, Rosa, he never allowed himself to fall in love. As the chemistry between them grows, Josh realizes that his player days have come to end. But it seems his change of heart has come too late. Not only is Rosa leery of his bad boy reputation, he has four vindictive ex-girlfriends who are on a rampage. At first he doesn’t take their threats seriously, but then his tires are slashed, someone tries to poison him, and one of the girls turns up dead. Josh doesn’t know who to trust, but one thing is certain. It definitely isn’t worth the price he’s paying to be a player.

Desert Wedding by Penny Kim #bookreview

Desert Wedding
Title: Desert Wedding
Series:
Author: Penny Kim
Publisher: Story Girl Press LLC
Description: There is nothing more exciting than when your best friend gets married. And for Elsie McKenna, it seems like she's got the maid of honor thing figured out. But as the big day date gets closer and wedding planning takes over, Elsie's friendship with the bride-to-be, Res, begins to go downhill. To make matters worse, Elsie's boyfriend, the long-suffering Jonah, becomes increasingly distant. It's not too soon before Elsie begins to wonder if there's something in the air in Phoenix, or if it's just a nasty case of wedding fever.

Review: As most of you know, this is not my standard reading material. I decided to try to branch out a little bit. This story is all about all the b that can go wrong during the wedding planning process. Elsie has been through some of these issues before while planning her unfinished wedding and can see a lot of the troubles she had happening to her best friend Res. Res is African and has many traditions that are not held in the United States. She is marrying a westerner whose family will not accept her traditions. His family criticizes everything she does forcing her to change nearly everything about herself in order to fit into their mold. Elsie is downright depressed and ticked off at what everyone is putting her through. As maid of honor she makes her own opinions known causing Res even more stress than she had been feeling previously. In her attempt to help Res stand up for herself as well as plan her wedding for herself instead of a wedding for her future future in-laws, Elsie manages to alienate herself and get kicked out of the wedding.

That's not all the terrible things that happen to Elsie though. As you may have guessed, Elsie has her fair share of commitment issues from her own failed wedding. She never lived with a man and marriage is off limits for any conversation, unless of course it is someone else's wedding. At this point in her life though she been in an "open" relationship for three years. Ok...so it really isn't open. They agreed to an open relationship, but neither has dated another person the entire time they have been together. All the wedding preparations for Res has gotten to Elsie's boyfriend causing problems for Elsie at home. Will Elsie get over her fears of the "m" word? Will Res get the wedding of her dreams? Will Res lose herself to the pressure of being an American woman? Let's just say the book has a very interesting ending. I enjoyed the story, but I can definitely say that I am so very happy not to have experienced many of the issues presented. If that is how weddings are normally planned, no wonder Bridezilla was a popular show.

loveandbloodBronwyn Fitzgibbons was young and reckless. It was easy for Ronan to steal her human life and make her a vampire. She ran, but she never forgot him--or how he made her feel.

Rider saved Bronwyn from the new life she loathed and the new self she detested. His love restored her sanity.

Now Ronan is back to claim her. She struggles like hell against him, but she cannot deny the overwhelming power of her maker. Will Bronwyn surrender to the one who could possess her utterly? Or can she find the strength to choose the one who loves her as she is?

Read an excerpt from the book:

“Please, tell me you aren’t going to go looking for him,” Rider said quietly.“I don’t think I’ll have to, he knows where I am now.” Rider looked at her for a moment before storming out of the room. Bronwyn let out a huff of air and sat on her bed.Seraph materialized in front of her. “Fighting again?”“Not exactly fighting. This is exactly the reason I don’t like living with him; he gets all moody and possessive. I’m not his to own, I never was,” Bronwyn said angrily.Seraph studied her face, “Rider isn’t the only one who wants to own you, Wyn. So snap out of your pissy attitude and play nice.” It was rare for Seraph to scold her, so Bronwyn kept her mouth shut. Seraph nodded and stalked out of the room. Finally alone with her thoughts, she went into the bathroom and turned the shower on as hot as it would go. She stepped in as soon as steam came pouring out of the top. Bronwyn stood under the spray, wanting to wash away the last twenty years of her life.

Nobody Has To Know, Frank Nappi's dark and daring new thriller, tells the story of Cameron Baldridge, a popular high school teacher whose relationship with one of his students leads him down an unfortunate and self-destructive path.

Friday (Non)Fiction: Vicky Finds a Valentine review #IOTours

Vickey Finds a Valentine 1

Vicky Finds a Valentine 2
Title: Vicky Finds a Valentine
Series: A Bird Brain Book
Author: Emlyn Chand
Publisher: Evolved Publishing
Description: Vicky is happy young lovebird with a great life as the Johnson family pet. When her human Marie starts making Valentine’s Day cards for her first grade class, Vicky is definitely intrigued.

“Valentine’s Day is very special,” Marie explains. “It only comes once a year, and when it comes, you have to tell everyone how much you love them. But most of all, you have to find a special friend to be your Valentine.”

A day about love? That’s fantastic! Now who can be Vicky’s special Valentine?

A search begins as Vicky asks anyone who will listen to be her Valentine. Unfortunately, the pretty dolly ignores her, and so do the people in the glass box—and she’s not sure she can trust the family cat’s intentions. Will the day come to a close before Vicky can find a Valentine?

There’s only one way to find out: join Vicky in her hunt for love in this special holiday edition of the color-illustrated Bird Brain Books.

Review: Another cute story by Emlyn Chand. This time the book is about a Love bird named Vicky. She is a pet bird who absolutely loves her life. She actually feels sorry for the birds she sees outside her window because they don't have the loving family that she has in her home. She loves everything about her day, especially when her best friend Marie comes home from school. Marie always tells Vicky about her day and treats her like she's a well loved pet.

Well one day Marie comes home from school and tells Vicky about Valentine's Day while making valentines for her entire class. You remember those days right? Marie tells her how on Valentine's Day you give valentines to everyone you care about and you find a special person to be your valentine. The next day, Vicky goes in search of her special valentine. She tries talking to a doll (who obviously doesn't respond). She talks to the people on the t.v. (who obviously rudely ignore her). Finally she thinks that she has found her valentine in the house cat, but of course the cat nearly eats Vicky while she isn't looking. Marie saves her just in time. Disappointed, but glad to see Marie, Vicky listens like a good friend to Marie as she talks about her day. Marie then gives Vicky the one thing she was searching for, a special valentine because they are each other's special valentine friends. It's a cute children's story with wonderful artwork. I am a big fan of all the Bird Brain Books. I think these are great stories for children of all ages.
