Stranger Things Book Tag!

Image result for stranger things book tag

This is a really neat book tag that was created by booktuber Sarah Sunbeemz. Her channel is great and worth checking out. If you haven't watched Stranger Things....stop right now and go watch it. Seriously.

1.)Epic Intro: The opening sequence of Stranger Things is amazing and really grabs your attention. Name a book that grabbed your attention from the first page.

A:Recently I would say This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. The opening sentence opened with Kate setting the school chapter on fire. It was a great first sentence to open up the story. 

2.) 2. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS. Name a fantasy world you would like to experience yourself.

A:I would have to say Velaris from A Court of Mist and Fury. It soooo beautiful they way it is described. I would love to see that world.

3.) SQUAD GOALS. When Eleven met Mike, Dustin and Lucas it was a *mostly* perfect team. Name your favourite bookish group of friends.

A:I think it is pretty obvious: Harry, Ron, and Hermionie .....Enough said.

4.)  ABC’s & CHRISTMAS LIGHTS. Joyce Byers goes mad with grief after Will goes missing. Name your favourite mentally unhinged character.

A: It would be Silla from And the Trees Crept in by Dawn Kurtagich. It is a psychological thriller and as the book progress the main character clearly starts to fall deeper into a mental state of paranoia. 

5.)THE UPSIDE DOWN. Name a book that was the opposite of what you expected. 

A: I would say And The Trees Crept In. I totally was not expecting the ending. It was way off from what I though it would be and would have guess it would be. If you read it then you will definently know what I'm talking about. My Review

6.)MAD SCIENTISTS. Dr. Brenner likes to get freaky with humanity. Name the freakiest dystopian government you can think of.

A:The Hunger Games...A government that is requires a  bunch of children to be gathered together and kill each other......that is pretty freaky.

7.)DEMOGORGON. Name a scary bookish creature that you would not want to come through your walls.

A:  I don't read a lot of horror/thrillers but I have had a share of zombie books. They are disgusting! I prefer to read them than to watch them. I couldn't even watch The Walking Dead....I'm horrible. 

8.)  CLIFFHANGER ENDING. name a book that left you wanting more.

A: A Court of Mist and Fury. I can go all day about why that ending had me crying for the next book but we won't go there. 

That is it. If you feel that you want to do this tag go ahead. Tag me so that I can see your answers.

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: 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…

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…
