Bounty of Books

At this time of year when we focus on all that we’re grateful for, I want to feature a few books I’ve read over the past months that have been winners.

I’m very thankful for books–for authors who write them, for being able to write my own and get those crazy imaginings out of my head, and for the ability to read. I love reading (if you can’t tell from my Goodreads log)…and these stories all rated the highest score from me. Continue reading

Forgetting and Remembering

Forget Me Not

I just read and reviewed these Young Adult books in the Collective Series. The first book, Forget Me Not, was very riveting. Anamae (or Mae) is a normal 17-year-old girl who struggles to get up in time for school, spend time with her best friend, Will, and hang out with her dad since her mother disappeared years ago and they only have each other. But when she touches her mother’s necklace pendant and opens the gift of invisibility, everything she knew to be true is shattered.

She changes her definition of ‘normal’ and unknowingly brings down the wrath of the Collective upon her, a secret society of techno-gurus who run the world incognito through the use of technology that no one else knows about. Mae and her best friend, Will, escape and are taken in by the resistance. That’s where she meets Jax, a hot 18-year-old who confuses and attracts her. This book was Continue reading

News on the Book Front

444864412_fcd684b27f_zGood news! I’ve been working on all the books of the Bending Willow Trilogy (the new name for my Eyes of Light series) for the last millennium. What? Did I hear a snort of disbelief? Well, for your information, it feels like forever…and that’s even longer than a millennium.

When I’m in the reader’s chair eagerly awaiting a new book release, I wish the author would hurry up and get their book done. It’s agony waiting for a beloved book!

But now, after being in the author’s rigid, uncomfortable seat…I beg mercy and plead my case (and a box of chocolates) before you oh, noble readers. I had every intention of Continue reading

Make me a Match!

Match Maker Book Cover

Yea! It’s time to make a match. Do you remember when I reviewed The Husband Maker? Well, this is the sequel, and it didn’t disappoint.

If you haven’t read book #1 The Husband Maker yet, this blurb for book 2 might contain spoilers…so skip over it. Better yet, go buy Book 1 so you can get to know Charlotte, the girl with the dreaded nickname of “Husband Maker.”

It’s been six months since Charlotte and Kyle broke up, and the Husband Maker strikes again. Kyle is officially engaged, while Charlotte is still nursing a broken heart.

In an effort to get Charlotte out of her rut, she and her best friend decide it’s time for some good old-fashioned matchmaking. While Aleena arranges for Charlotte to meet up with a handsome Scottish tourist, Charlotte gets her two best friends together. But when sparks start to fly between Aleena and Angus, Charlotte is Continue reading
