Book Blitz: 'THIRST: BLOOD OF MY BLOOD' by R.P. Channing

Thirst: Blood of my Blood
Spotlight


240+ Pages
WITH BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS


~ Kira Sutherland ~


After a near fatal accident (and getting cheated on by her 'boyfriend'), and beating up the lead cheerleader (with whom the boyfriend cheated...), and being labeled as having 'issues' in her school because she, uhm, sees ghosts, Kira is left with two choices:

1. Continue her 'therapy' (where she's told the ghost is a hallucination and also gets her legs ogled too often...)

Or

2. Go to Starkfield Academy, a boarding school for "Crazies and Convicts" (as the social media sites call them.)

She chooses the latter...

~ Cory Rand ~


Cory Rand has not had an easy life. His mother died in a car accident when he was twelve, and so did his mother's best friend...sort of. You see, Janice made a promise to take care of Cory just before she died, and so she lingers. Undead. A ghost that watches out for him.

Brought up in an abusive home, Cory quickly falls into a life of disreputable behavior. After his third offense (which was prompted by a girl, as usual - he has a weakness) he's left with two choices:

1. Be tried as an adult and share a cell with a guy named Bubba (he thinks...)

Or

2. Go to Starkfield Academy, which Cory is pretty sure is run by vampires. But, hey, at least he'll get an education.

He chooses the latter...

It's at Starkfield that Kira meets Cory Rand, a boy with an insatiable Rage who sees ghosts, too. As well as other things, other things from his past, things that confuse him, things like fire and witches and demons.

Things he's always ignored.

Until now.

Author Bio

R P Channing started writing three years ago, but never published anything even after churning out over a million words of fiction. Thirst: Blood of my Blood is the first book he dared to publish. When asked why, he said, “Because it’s the first thing I wrote that my wife actually enjoyed reading.” When not hammering away (most literally) at his keyboard, he can be found buried in a book, reading anything from romance to horror to young adult to non-fiction to comedy.
If it has words in it, I’ll take it.

Book Blitz: ELEMENTALS: THE PROPHECY OF SHADOWS by Michelle Madow


Elementals: The Prophecy of Shadows
by Michelle Madow
Release Date: January 26th 2016

Summary from Goodreads:

Filled with magic, thrilling adventure, and sweet romance, Elementals is the first in a new series that fans of Percy Jackson and The Secret Circle will love! 

When Nicole Cassidy moves from sunny Georgia to gloomy New England, the last thing she expects is to learn that her homeroom is a cover for a secret coven of witches. Even more surprisingly … she’s apparently a witch herself. Despite doubts about her newfound abilities, Nicole is welcomed into this ancient circle of witches and is bedazzled by their powers—and, to her dismay, by Blake—the school’s notorious bad-boy.

Girls who get close to Blake wind up hurt. His girlfriend Danielle will do anything to keep them away, even if she must resort to using dark magic. But the chemistry between Blake and Nicole is undeniable, and despite wanting to protect Nicole from Danielle’s wrath, he finds it impossible to keep his distance.

When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years, Nicole, Blake, Danielle, and two others in their homeroom are gifted with mysterious powers. But the comet has another effect—it opens the portal to the prison world that has contained the Titans for centuries. After an ancient monster escapes and attacks Nicole and Blake, it’s up to them and the others to follow the clues from a cryptic prophecy so that they can save their town … and possibly the world.

Teaser Tuesday #3: CINDER by Marissa Meyer

TeaserTuesday-ADailyRhythm3

Hosted by MizB from adailyrhythm.com, Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme where you share two (2) “teaser” sentences from your current read to try to entice others to want to seek it out.

This week's teaser:


Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer

A flash of irritation sparked through Dr. Erland's blue eyes. "Yes, and why should this upset you?" 

"Because you're Lunar!" 

"As are you. Should I consider the prince's safety threatened because he asked you to the ball?"

"That's different!"

"Don't be dense, Miss Linh. I understand the prejudices. In many ways, they're understandable, even justified, given Earth's history with Luna. But it does not mean we are all greedy, self-serving devils. Believe me --- there is not a person on this planet who would like to see Levana off the throne more than I would. I would kill her myself if I had the power." The doctor's face had gone cherry pink, his eyes blazing. 

"All right." Cinder pinched the chair's cushion until she felt the material puncture beneath her steel fingers. "I can accept that. Not all Lunars are devils, and not all Lunars are as easily brainwashed into following Levana. ...how many of them risk their lives to run away? So why did you?"

Dr. Erland moved as if he were going to stand, but after a hesitation, his shoulders sank, deflated. "She killed my daughter."

Top Ten Tuesdays #5: Top Ten Books I've Recently Added To My TBR List


Hosted by brokeandbookish.com, Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created because they are particularly fond of lists. This week's list showcases the top ten books I've recently added to my TBR list. 

15451058

10. My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem
Gloria Steinem—writer, activist, organizer, and one of the most inspiring leaders in the world—now tells a story she has never told before, a candid account of how her early years led her to live an on-the-road kind of life, traveling, listening to people, learning, and creating change. She reveals the story of her own growth in tandem with the growth of an ongoing movement for equality. This is the story at the heart of My Life on the Road.

I mostly chose this book because I joined Emma Watson's Goodreads book club, so I hope to get into this book to discuss it with other fans soon.

9. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
passage, n.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not.


Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are play­ing, treacherous forces threaten to sep­arate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever

I've seen almost every Booktuber, book blogger and so on review this book. I've heard some good things about it, so I'm really interested to get to read it, at least for January.

8. Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina by Misty Copeland
"Picture a ballerina in a tutu and toe shoes. What does she look like?"

As the only African American soloist dancing with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre, Misty Copeland has made history. But when she first placed her hands on the barre at an after-school community center, no one expected the undersized, anxious thirteen-year-old to become a ground-breaking ballerina. 

When she discovered ballet, Misty was living in a shabby motel room, struggling with her five siblings for a place to sleep on the floor. A true prodigy, she was dancing en pointe within three months of taking her first dance class and performing professionally in just over a year: a feat unheard of for any classical dancer. But when Misty became caught between the control and comfort she found in the world of ballet and the harsh realities of her own life (culminating in a highly publicized custody battle), she had to choose to embrace both her identity and her dreams, and find the courage to be one of a kind. 

With an insider's unique point of view, Misty opens a window into the life of a professional ballerina who lives life center stage: from behind the scenes at her first auditions to her triumphant roles in some of the most iconic ballets. But in this beautifully written memoir, she also delves deeper to reveal the desire and drive that made her dreams reality. 


Life in Motion is a story of passion and grace for anyone who has dared to dream of a different life.

My friend Angela went to see Misty on stage in New York last month, and she absolutely loved it! She said she had the best time, and she'd definitely go again. I've been a new fan of Misty for awhile and have yet to see a show. I hope that reading this autobio will help me get into the mind of the first African American principal dancer of the American Ballet Theatre!

7. A Proper Young Lady by Lianne Simon 
An M/I/F Sweet Romance.

A woman with the complete form of Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome might never discover that she has testes in her abdomen rather than ovaries and uterus. Danièle knows, and she grieves that she can never have her own children. She has a partial form of AIS that left her with ambiguous genitals, a steady stream of doctors and psychologists, and parents determined to see her happy as a girl.

After Danièle's best friend and childhood crush agrees to have a baby for her, Danièle learns that the clinic can extract sperm from her own gonadal biopsies, and she becomes the father of Melanie's baby herself.


Ethan adores the graceful young woman named Danièle, while Melanie imagines a life with the father of her child. Danièle? She’s happy with her intersex body—somewhere between princess and little boy. But in a black and white world, she must choose—once and for all—who she will be. And whom she will love. 

The summary was so intriguing enough, so I'm definitely excited to read this one soon. I also did a book tour for this book last year, which Lianne was very appreciative of.

6. Dangerous Lies by Becca Fitzpatrick
A teen is forced to make a fresh start after witnessing a violent crime—but love and danger find her anyway in this novel from Becca Fitzpatrick, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga.

Stella Gordon is not her real name. Thunder Basin, Nebraska, is not her real home. This is not her real life.

After witnessing a lethal crime, Stella Gordon is sent to the middle of nowhere for her own safety before she testifies against the man she saw kill her mother’s drug dealer.

But Stella was about to start her senior year with the boyfriend she loves. How can she be pulled away from the only life she knows and expected to start a new one in Nebraska? Stella chafes at her protection and is rude to everyone she meets. She’s not planning on staying long, so why be friendly? Then she meets Chet Falconer and it becomes harder to keep her guard up, even as her guilt about having to lie to him grows.


As Stella starts to feel safer, the real threat to her life increases—because her enemies are actually closer than she thinks…

I liked Becca's Vampire Academy books, so I hope this book is good too. Her last book Black Ice I've heard was pretty bad, but I'm still hoping lol.

5. For the Record by Charlotte Huang
If Almost Famous were a YA novel... a raw, honest debut celebrating music, friendship, romance, and life on the road.

Chelsea thought she knew what being a rock star was like... until she became one. After losing a TV talent show, she slid back into small-town anonymity. But one phone call changed everything 

Now she’s the lead singer of the band Melbourne, performing in sold-out clubs every night and living on a bus with three gorgeous and talented guys. The bummer is that the band barely tolerates her. And when teen heartthrob Lucas Rivers take an interest in her, Chelsea is suddenly famous, bringing Melbourne to the next level—not that they’re happy about that. Her feelings for Beckett, Melbourne’s bassist, are making life even more complicated.


Chelsea only has the summer tour to make the band—and their fans—love her. If she doesn’t, she’ll be back in Michigan for senior year, dying a slow death. The paparazzi, the haters, the grueling schedule... Chelsea believed she could handle it. But what if she can’t? 

This looks interesting, very light-hearted and full of music, which I love. I love a good behind the scenes music scene-type of book or story. This should be a good time, amongst all of the heavy drama I'll be reading.

4. The X Factor: Confessions of a Naive Fashion Model by Ivan Sivec
Confessions of a naive fashion model. It takes three mistakes to be swallowed up and spat out by the fashion industry. You trust the wrong people. You think you know everything there is to know about life. You take drugs. Maja started off as a regular 17-year-old high-school kid, fighting her inner insecurities while dreaming to become an actress like Marilyn Monroe. At a party her boyfriend Klemen introduces her to a renowned modelling agent. He sees a special X Factor hidden insight her. And a great business opportunity for himself... Fast forward a few weeks later. Maja's charm and talent land her a modelling contract in the trendy and exciting fashion capital of Milan. She's completely enchanted and determined to make it in the fashion world. But things don't turn out the way she had planned. Exhausting long photo shoots, stressful fashion shows, strict dieting and wild parties start taking their toll on her soon enough. In desperate search for help Maja reaches out to her agent and other false friends from the fashion industry that emotionally and physically exploit her to the point where 'Maja the Great' is merely a shadow of her former self. She starts battling drug addiction that ends up in a tragic event. Maja has been finally swallowed up and spit out by the fashion industry with its endless traps. What price will the girl with the X Factor have to pay for her naivety? The young adult novel The X Factor by the bestselling Slovenian author Ivan Sivec is based on a true story and takes the reader on a frightening journey into the world of drug addiction among teenager fashion models."

I did a blog tour for this book, and Ivan saw it and loved it! But other than that, the summary looks really deep. I don't know anything about the modelling industry, but by this synopsis, it looks like Maja has been through a lot enough for Ivan to write about it.

3. Me, Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews 
Greg Gaines is the last master of high school espionage, able to disappear at will into any social environment. He has only one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time making movies, their own incomprehensible versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics.

Until Greg’s mother forces him to rekindle his childhood friendship with Rachel.

Rachel has been diagnosed with leukemia—-cue extreme adolescent awkwardness—-but a parental mandate has been issued and must be obeyed. When Rachel stops treatment, Greg and Earl decide the thing to do is to make a film for her, which turns into the Worst Film Ever Made and becomes a turning point in each of their lives.


And all at once Greg must abandon invisibility and stand in the spotlight. 

This was a movie last year, and I'd heard it was a good, heartwarming film, overall. I hope to both read the book and see the movie soon.

16102004

2. Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren 
An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling. 

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He's exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family's massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who'd been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative—completely infuriating—creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he's never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe's so tempting he's willing to bend the rules—or outright smash them—if it means he can have her. All over the office. 

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they're willing to lose in order to win each other.


Originally only available online as The Office by tby789—and garnering over 2 million reads on fanfiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

This was a Twilight fanfiction back in the day, just like 50 Shades of Grey, and I'm kinda scared to read this. Only because I'm afraid it'll be like 50SOG which I thought was terrible. But I've heard this fanfic and book were both good, if not better than 50SOG so maybe, possibly, I'll check it out... lol

1. Hope: Indigo Ballet Series #2 by Grier Cooper
Perfection. Beauty. Pain. For Indigo Stevens there’s no such thing as weakness or privacy at the famed New York School of Ballet where every movement is scrutinized and judged. Indigo hopes she’ll be chosen for the company, but her ballet teachers aren’t talking and their silence is confusing.


When Indigo is singled out for a coveted solo she feels her dreams are finally within reach, until she discovers she’s dancing with Felipe Gonzalez, the school’s smolderingly hot rising star. In the days that follow, Indigo questions everything she thought was true and finds herself making surprising choices, including the decision to take control of her own future. Will she create the life she wants or lose everything?

I read some of the first book, Wish, but I haven't finished it yet. I hope that since the sequel is finally coming out, it will give me the insight to finish the first novel.

Thursday Quotables #3: CINDER by Marissa Meyer

"Cinder and Iko" fan art by may12324

quotation-marks2

Hosted by: Bookshelf Fantasies
Description: Share a favorite quote, line, or passage from your reading each week!

This week in Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer:

"Cinder."

She couldn't help it. She looked at him. Her defenses withered a bit upon encountering the openness in his brown eyes. His confidence had been replaced with worry. Uncertainty. 

"200,000 single girls," he said. "Why not you?"

Cyborg. Lunar. Mechanic. She was the last thing he wanted. 

She opened her lips, and the elevator stopped. "I'm sorry. But trust me --- yu don't want to go with me."

The doors opened and the tension released her. She rushed out of the elevator, head down, trying not to look at the small group of people waiting for an elevator. 

"Come to the ball with me."

She froze. Everyone in the hallway froze. 

Kai and Cinder's relationship is so formal and scientific that I can't tell if they either like each other or just need each other to diffuse their own problems. Kai needs her to go to the ball just to get rid of Queen Levana; and Cinder kinda has a liking towards him, but it's not as in-your-face. It's like she's hiding from herself, and that scares her. So when Kai gets rejected over and over, she feels badly about it, but didn't you already say no twice now? What's her deal? I don't get it...

Have you read this part yet in the books? Let me know! I'd love to discuss it with you all.

Music Review: Alex G's 'Share Your Story' EP (2015)


Review

I've been following Alex G's music career since 2011, when I first saw her Youtube cover of Paramore's "Monster" with Eppic. I's thought it was great how someone could take one of my favorites from a band I love very dearly and make it her own. And so, I subscribed to her channel, and I've seen so many changes in Alex's music since then. I listened to her 2014 debut album and loved it, so it was only a matter of time before she released something new this year. 

When Alex  first announced the concept for the 'Share Your Story' EP in this video, I continuously watched it over and over, seeing a whole different, newer, more authentic side to the singer. I saw someone who became more knowing of who she was and wanted to help other people feel the same way, which is the purpose of the EP. Six of the seven tracks are dedicated to fans who have literally shared their stories with the singer, encouraging them to be themselves and stay strong in whatever predicament they may be in.

Even though I haven't personally met these people Alex is singing to, her voice and acoustics pull me into their world, so that it looks like I knew what they were feeling initially. Where songs like "Muriel", "Charlotte" and "Royston" comfort the person and tell them it's going to be all right, songs like "Alena" and "Ben" showcase more of a cheery aura. Both sides of these stories fit on the album, and Alex's writing expresses them beautifully.

I'll be listening to this EP for a long time, or at least until Alex releases a new project! ;) ♥

Favorite songs: "Intro", "Charlotte", "Muriel", "Alena", "Royston", "Everything"

#CoverReveal: #INTHEAFTER by @ElisaDane @xpressotours


Borrowed Magic
In the After
Published by: Swoon Romance
Publication date: February 2nd 2016
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Sadie Reynolds is a liar with secrets. At school, she’s part of the popular crowd known as AE, despite being broken inside. She hides it well. She has to. The slightest bit of imperfection will land her in the same shoes as her Geeky neighbor named Ian.
Ian and his only friend are the object of Sadie’s friends’ ridicule, ire, and entertainment. The AE rule the school with intimidation and retribution against anyone who would dare question their supremacy.
Sadie steers clear of most of it, terrified someone will find out her secret. She isn’t the least bit perfect. In fact, she suffers from PTSD stemming from the murder of her mother right before her eyes when she was a child. She can barely cope from day-to-day, hiding her truth and trying to fit in. But she knows it’s only a matter of time.
Hayden is a “Waverly,” a kid with the misfortune of living in the small farming town of Waverly that borders the very affluent Lexington Parrish. The AE doesn’t mix with “Waverlies.” Ever.
Desperate to get away from her oppressive friends, Sadie crashes into Hayden at a bonfire and the attraction that sparks between them is nothing short of electric. But Hayden’s an outsider and when things heat up, Sadie will be forced to choose between her friends and her new boyfriend.
Only Queen Bee Britt isn’t having it. She will not allow Sadie to cross her. Sadie can either do what Britt wants her to do or she will reveal Sadie for the PTSD freak that she is.
Sadie does some soul searching about who she is and who she wants to be. She can’t live her life like this. Not any more. One fateful night will help her see how much things have to change.
She’s determined to no longer allow the AE to rule her life. She will be strong, stand up for Ian and love who she wants in Hayden. Determined and invigorated, Sadie goes to school feeling hopeful for the first time in forever.
But, the unthinkable happens.
Shooters attack dozens of students before the two eventually take their own lives, leaving the school a decimated shadow of what it once was.
Suddenly who lives where, wears what or loves whom seems like the least of Lexington Parish’s problems as everyone and everything changes forever in the after.
IN THE AFTER by Elisa Dane is a hard-hitting and heart-warming story of tragedy, love, loss and redemption. It is recommended for readers 14+.

Book Blitz: INTERLUDE: STONE LEGACY SERIES by Theresa DaLayne



Interlude (The Stone Legacy #2)
by Theresa DaLayne
Limitless Publishing

Summary from Goodreads:

Tara may have spent years in an asylum, but that doesn’t make her crazy–just fearless.

Dropped in Moscow with a the group of enchanted Mayan descendants, seventeen-year-old Tara is forced to wait on the sideline while her best friend—the Stone Guardian— battles to reclaim a friend’s soul trapped in the underworld.

It sucks being ordinary when everyone else is superhuman…

A mortal girl with a tainted past, Tara is left to deal with an overwhelming sense of inadequacy. Her boyfriend, Peter, is a healer. Her best friend is The Guardian, and everyone else is a powerhouse of awesome strengths. Meanwhile, she struggles to leave her childhood of abuse in the past, and while Peter picks her up every time she falls, it becomes clear he deserves better.

When they opened Pandora’s Box, hell came pouring out…

When she’s given a chance to aid in the group’s mission, Tara is eager to pull her own weight, even if it means uncovering buried memories of being held prisoner by the underworld general. Now haunted with flashbacks of torture, Tara wanders from the safety of Peter’s arms into a city of depravity and corruption. And amidst all this evil is a young man with an agenda of his own, who leads her down a road that will either prove she is a hero at heart, or drag her into a world she’s always feared.

He wants revenge, she wants redemption. And in an underground ring of missing girls and bloody sacrifices, only the fearless can survive…

About the Author

Theresa DaLayne is a north-south-east-western kind of girl with a quirky personality to match her nomad life. Born in California, she migrated to three different cities in Washington State, a tiny island in Alaska, North Carolina, and finally to the suburbs of Ohio where she currently lives with her husband, three kids, vegetarian cat, and her ungrateful fish.

Always on the lookout for a new story, Theresa is a shameless eavesdropper and will take anyone who provides inspiration and mold them into a character without a second thought. She enjoys writing both paranormal and contemporary stories, considering her mind wanders between worlds of fantasy while she’s forced to live in the real world, very much against her will.
