Cover Reveal and Guest Post: Twisted Reflections by Shay West

Back Blurb:
Alexis Davenport is learning to come to grips with her ability to travel through time, but she still hasn’t been able to stop the evil Drifter, and his Master, from trying to alter the past. When she travels back to ancient Egypt, Alex gets a most unexpected surprise; she meets someone who can help her figure out how to use her powers, another Traveler like herself. But can Alex learn how to control her gift before Drifter finds a way to stop her from meddling in his Master’s plans?
Twisted Reflections is the highly anticipated Book Two, in The Adventures of Alexis Davenport Series.

Soul Mates
When it comes to books, I prefer action compared to romance. Not that a little romance is necessarily a bad thing, I just like to read fast-paced books with battles and conflict. I prefer to read about how two people fall in love rather than the act of love itself. What brought the two together? Are they attracted only physically at first but love blossoms later? Do they hate each oth…

Cover Reveal: Tempted by a Rouge Prince by Felicity Heaton

Guest Post: Finding Your Voice: Writing in First Person or Third by Melissa Delport, author of The Legacy

The Legacy - MELISSA DELPORT One man obsessed with power.
One woman prepared to sacrifice everything to stop him.
One war that changed the world.
“World War Three lasted twelve days. Twelve days was all it took for mankind to devastate the planet and almost eradicate the human race. No victor emerged from the ashes and billions lost their lives.
We survivors lived through the bleakest of winters. A primal existence became the new order, and the little that remained of our humanity hung in the balance.
Then one man stood up and changed the world. I believed, as did everyone else, that he was the hero of our time, the man who had saved us from our own demise. His name is Eric Dane and he is the President of the New United States of America. 
He is also my husband, and my greatest enemy.
I grew up oblivious to the truth, until my father found me when I was nineteen years old. He told me about the many horrifying facts that our new leader kept hidden from us. And he told me that beyond the bord…

Book Review: Dream on by M. Kircher

(I received this free book from the author in exchange for an honest review) 

Goodreads Summary: Seventeen-year-old dreamwalker, Em, might have to choose—leave her mother forever in the dreamworld or save the life of hot, rebel Gabe.

Emily Dal Monte and her mother, Lily, are special. They’re humans with a glitch in their genetic code that allows them to explore the fantastic, and often terrifying, world of their dreams for as long as they choose to remain asleep.

Enter Gabriel Sobel, the punk newcomer at Em’s high school who realizes Em is the daughter of his favorite, reclusive author. Gabe can’t figure out why Em keeps brushing him off and makes it his mission to find out what’s really going on at the Dal Mo…

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

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 studen…

Book Review: Heart of Eternity by N. Jay

(I recieved this free ebook in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: When you are invited to dance with the muse of love, when you are driven to the edge by the pain of the past, when you hold the remedy for what ails you in your arms you will find yourself in the heart of eternity.
Set in the Blue Mountain’s town of Blackheath in New South Wales, Australia, the novel Heart of Eternity introduces two very different characters, Jay and Naida, who encounter each other at a challenging time in each of their lives. Their individual expressions of the feelings they provoke in each other give rise to a turmoil that could ultimately claim their lives. When two people understand so deeply the pain each other has faced will it force them into the abyss of darkness or will their combined need for healing allow love to enter both their hearts?

Reading Heart of Eternity was very interesting to read. It was a very good, spiritual, and powerful read t…

Book Review: Things in Ditches by Jimmy Olsen

Goodreads Summary: A murder mystery novel. The story of Phillip "Dutch" Cleland, a man with a hidden past and a future about to explode in his face. A seemingly average man whose love for two women drives him to such extremes that deception, even murder and suicide are not longer unthinkable.
When a lovely corpse is discovered near Dutch's home town, the nearby ditches begin to yield a harvest of secrets, none of them comforting for Dutch. Soon he is forced to flee for his life, before his past and the police slip a noose around his neck. Things In Ditches is peopled with small town characters that are so humorous and eccentric, their oddball antics enliven every paragraph and page. A reader can't help but be reeled in by the strange citizens of Willow River, until soon discovering they're really not so different from all of us and Dutch's story is the oldest story on earth; good and evil, betrayal and laughter. And finally, the power of love and friendship, fo…
