Book Review: Djinn by Laura Catherine

(I received this free ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads Summary: Kyra’s life is far from normal.

She's been on the run for as long she can remember and her father is the only stable thing in her life, but everything changes when the people pursuing them finally catch up.

Kyra is abducted by the handsome and mysterious, Will. He takes her to a secret compound where she is told the truth: She's a Djinn, a genie-like creature with super powers and a love of dogs.

Kyra has to adjust to the Djinn and their rules, but her new life is far from perfect. Everyone is hiding something and the one person Kyra cares about most is forbidden to her.

There are secrets around every corner and more dangers than Kyra could ever imagine as she struggles to find herself and be with the one she loves.

 ************************************************************************
I LOVED reading Djinn!  The writing was good, the characters were great, and the cover is perfect! Once I got done with the opening scene I knew it was going to be good.

Kyra and her father have been on the run for her whole life. He trains her to fight and to observe her surroundings. Kyra takes what her father teaches her and although she questions it she feels that he is just protecting her. She even goes through great lengths to not really get close to anyone. Suddenly everything that she has known was nothing but a huge lie. I don't want to give anything away so I'm just going to leave it at that :).

Will is just the perfect gentleman *swoons*. Although he is the perfect gentleman he can still kick some major butt. He fell in love with Kyra from the moment he saw her but because of his background she is forbidden to him. I loved reading Will's character. 


The plot was very interesting and thought out. This was one of those books that you have to finish reading once you start. There is no stopping. 

The only thing that I would have to say is that to me the ending felt rushed a bit. Other than that it was a great read. You cannot read this book and not read the next one. Questions were most definitely raised at the end.

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Class of '59 by John Heldt

(I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

In the same house on March 21, 1959, Mark Ryan finds a letter. Written by the mansion’s original owner in 1900, the letter describes a basement chamber, mysterious crystals, and a formula for time travel. Driven by curiosity, Mark tests the formula twice. On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…

June Wrap Up

So for this month I did really good and read a total of 11 books! Two of those books were on my original TBR and the rest I picked up as a I saw. Normally on average I read about 4 or 5 a month but my reading has really been doing good. So here is all I read for the month of June.
























Most of these were 4 stars. I read more contemporary than any genre. Home and Away is a book for School Library Journal so unfortunately I cannot share that review at this time. Have anyone of you guys read any of these topics?
