New Blogger to Join Highway-Y.A

I have been blogging for almost a year and this blog has taken off in so many ways that I did not think was possible. I have all of you to thank for that.  What started out as me just posting reviews on books that I enjoyed turned into being involved in book tours, working with authors and publishers, and meeting new bloggers in the blogging community. Since this blog has grown I have decided to have a good friend of mine blog with me. I am in school and the only time that I can truly commit to blogging is during the months that I am not in school or when I am on holidays. I would love to introduce Candie as a fellow blogger at Highway-Y.A! :)

Here is a little bit more about Candie

Candie Chatham
I am a Graphic Artist for a Library System but I have always had a love for people especially young people! I have a background in Children’s education of almost 12 years some of which was the very challenging Montessori teaching method. I have also worked with high school and college age students through my church for a number of years and have done volunteer work for a local radio station. I now work for a library where I get to do all kinds of fun things like teach classes to all ages and figure out fun things to challenge people with art!
I have always been a reader since I was very young and have had my own library card since I was old enough to have one! My favorite genre is dystopian!!! I just love all the futuristic things author come up with! It amazes me the imagination it takes to bring things to life that don’t even exist! I see things as I read them and that is how I decide whether a book is good or not. If I can see a picture of what I am reading well enough that the story plays out in my head I am in love with that book from the start! This is my favorite reading genre but I read all types of things and basically if it reaches out and grabs me by the end of the first chapter, I am reading it to the end!
Some of my favorite things to do besides reading are painting, sewing, quilting just about any kind of crafting! I don’t sit still very well. I am always doing something. It’s rare that I don’t have a project or two going at one time! Oh, although I don’t get to do it as much as I used to I am a singer as well.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.

This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

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.
