Book Review: Two Spell by Mark Morrison

(This ebook was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Sarah and her twin brother Jon are heirs to an ancient magical realm and its most valuable treasure, an enchanted library. The library endows readers with the supernatural means of crossing into the uncharted inner-sanctum of the second dimension, inhabited with peculiar and sometimes perilous creatures. 

The children are emboldened with a wondrous mystical gift that no other being has ever possessed. But fate intervenes and triggers a disastrous inter-dimensional war that disrupts the fabric of time and space spanning multiple universes, tearing destiny a new and savage pathway. 

The two must rescue their world from a phantom hybrid alien race controlled by a demented dark-wizard, Jeremy Sermack. They will either assimilate or be exterminated. 

Will they be the saviors the prophets spoke of, or will they retreat to the perceived safety of their distant homeland?

This book had everything that I love in a book! Creatures, magic, and a library that is enchanted????? Hello?....I work in a library. What would I give to work in a library that is enchanted. Everything! This fast gripping tale has action and comedy. 

Sarah and Jon are twins that are traveling to their grandparents home in Wales. There have it set in their minds that it is going to be quiet and not that exciting until they find themselves emerged in their family roles as being special and having an inter-dimensional world (love it)  that has an enchanted library. When certain things start to unfold it is up to the twins to protect those they love. 

I had so much fun reading this. It is for middle graders but I am 27 and I really enjoyed it. I felt the writing was good. It started off with a good pace and I love how it took me on a roller coaster of pulling me in and out. All of the characters were very enjoyable to read. 

Rating 4.5 Stars
Recommend? Yes :)

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?
