October Wrap Up

October has flown by so fast and we are at the end of the year! I had a really good reading month and read a total of 7 books. That is 3 more than my average books per month. I also have a good amount of books that I want to read for the month of November.

This was so good and I read it in one sitting. I also heard that there is a movie coming out and filming has just wrapped up. I have seen the cast of the movie and they fit perfectly. I can't wait till it comes out.

I am trying to get into middle grade fiction and I have always wanted to read this series. I listened to it and I loved the audio version of it. I didn't post a review because I'm pretty sure a lot of you guys know what this is about and have read. Although I loved the movie this was nothing like the movie.

The publishers were kind enough to send me this ARC of Three Dark Crowns. I did enjoy this story. It had good potential and a good build up for the second book. I did have a few issues with it but if you want to look at more you can check out my review. This story is about triplets that are born that each have powers. When the time comes for one of them to take the throne the sisters have exactly one year to fight to the death unfortunately only one of the two sisters have their powers.

I read this book as part of a book club that I run at my local library. I don't often venture off into adult fiction but I am trying to get more into it. I loved reading this story. There is a movie that is out and I want to go see that as well. I didn't review it because this is a popular book and there are a lot of reviews about this out there and with the movie out I'm sure you guys know the basic synopsis of the story.

I received this ARC from the publisher via net galley. The release date for this was yesterday (11/1/). There are three things Kori knows for sure about her life:

One: Her army general dad is insanely overprotective.

Two: The guy he sent to watch her, Cade, is way too good-looking.

Three: Everything she knew was a lie.

Now there are three things Kori never knew about her life:

One: There’s a device that allows her to jump dimensions.

                                                 Two: Cade’s got a lethal secret.

                                                 Three: Someone wants her dead.
Just the synopsis made me want to love it

This was sent to me for review by the author. This was one of the perfect reads for the Halloween spirit. It is set in New Orleans. It is very dark and intense not to mention it has voodoo. I loved reading this along with the previous ones within the series. I have reviews listed for those as well.

I also received this book by the author. He is one of my favorite authors that writes about time travel. I wasn't much into time travel books but I slowly became a fan of it. The writing is good 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.
