Goodreads Summary:

Eighteen year old Izzy’s limited world begins to feel cramped after she completes her self-appointed book dare. After reading two-hundred and fifty books, a thought that had been once tucked away as tightly as the books on her library shelves becomes too irresistible to ignore…”Who am I?”

Memory loss prohibits Izzy from remembering her life before age seven when she was injured in a fire. Fifteen year old Jonathan Gudwyne and his head housekeeper rescued her and took Izzy in as their own, but who did she belong to before Jonathan took her in?

Crippling panic keeps Izzy from wandering beyond the stables but Tubs, the Gudwyne’s thirteen-year old stable boy, encourages Izzy to go beyond the property’s rock wall to a world that promises possible answers. A scorched castle in the woods and its mysterious cellar reveal secrets that push Izzy beyond her discomfort to embark in a journey to the New World with her young friend.

Here, she finds love and a home in the most unexpected of places.

REVIEW:
Stars: 4.5/5 Stars

I signed up for this blog tour mostly because I was in love with the cover (Im such a sucker for Beautiful covers) So when I got the book I wasn’t 100% sure what I was getting myself into, but I was pleasantly surprised!
First off AMAZING writing,  the story flowed great and it keeps you guessing all the way through the book. It took me awhile to get into the book which lead to it taking me longer to get through the book, but that might have just been due to me being sick and not reading at all…

The characters and the story are so vivid, the story flows to life. You can feel the emotion. I have a feeling I’m going to love the second book & Start pushing this one on people. Get ready 😉

Snapdragon Review

Book: SnapdragonKilby Blades - Snapdragon Ebook Cover - 1400w
Series: Love Conquers None
Author: Kilby Blades
Buy your copy: Amazon
Goodreads Rating: 4.68 Stars
Goodreads Summary:

Book Trailer

The rules are simple: unattached companionship, toe-curling sex and a clean break whenever it ends. And it will end. Darby’s groundbreaking medical research will launch her into career stardom. Michael’s status as an architectural wunderkind will send him to a far-flung locale. Either one can say the single word that will break it off: Snapdragon.
But soul-deep sex is just the beginning. Michael becomes a fierce ally against her misogynist boss, a light to chase away the shadow of her notorious father, and the antidote to her crushing loneliness. Choosing love over ambition is the one thing she said she’d never do. And Darby must fight hard not to fall in love.
GET READY TO FALL IN LOVE WITH SNAPDRAGON

Deeply meaningful, desperately sexual, and inevitably bittersweet, Snapdragon deals with the quandary of choosing love over career, the weight of adulthood and the complexity of modern work-life. It rewrites the book on what a 21st century relationship should look like and keeps the reader wondering how it will end.

REVIEW:
Stars: 5 Stars
I’ve recently been hitting Romance Books pretty hard. Ill admit a few of them have been a little off, but Snapdragon has not been one of those books.

Snapdragon pulled me in instantly with the prospect of the deal. Throughout the whole book I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen in their arrangement, waiting for Snapdragon to be spoken and have everything Untangle.

I finished Snapdragon quick since I couldn’t seem to find a valid reason to put it down and start anything else.  Pick up your Copy today and fall into the sheets with Darby & Michael.

Except from the book:

THE DEAL

“I wasn’t kidding about the orgasms. They need to be toe-curling and there’d need to be at least four, every time we…”
“What if I promised you five? Would you see me if I promised you five?” He asked again only after he’d gently devoured her mouth once more.
“Lofty goal, Don’t you think?” she murmured against his chin, not waiting for an answer before capturing his lips once again.
“I’m an overachiever,” he said darkly as he pulled back.
“Six?” He nipped at her neck.
She might have laughed at his bravado if kissing him hadn’t felt so good. The idea was ludicrous—six orgasms? Even the four she’d mentioned had been an exaggeration. Still, a stab of anticipatory pleasure tingled up her spine as she realized this talented man might just deliver.
“This ends at sunrise,” she managed, still out of breath as she pulled away long enough to say the words.
“I thought you didn’t do one-night stands.”
“It’s not a one-night stand. It’s an interview.”

Illusionary Blog Tour

Book: Illusionary Illusionary
Author: Desiree Williams
Buy your copy: Amazon
Goodreads Rating: 4.5 Stars
Goodreads Summary:

Dorothy got sucked into a tornado.

Alice fell down a hole.

Wendy flew to Neverland.

Kamryn? She tripped down the stairs.

Now, Kamryn Kensington finds herself in a strange new world. Within minutes of her arrival, she dodges an archer’s arrow and avoids getting sliced up by a cosplay reject holding a dagger to her throat. And that’s before the storyteller’s breath brings stories to life.

Home is the mission—to return to her family and pursue her life’s dream of art and travel. Yet the longer she’s in the Land of Ur, the harder it is not to feel for the people she meets. Even her artistic side can’t help but breathe in the beautiful wonder and magic of this new world. So when the Oracle hands her a different quest, she takes it on the condition he sends her home afterward.

No one thought to warn her of a jealous queen and her dragon minions. Or that, by helping her, the cute storyteller would go crazy. Or that her heart would rip in two when she left. Those would’ve been great facts to know ahead of time.

Considering that nothing in Ur is what it seems, the mission proves to be more than she ever imagined. But more than her own future will be in jeopardy if Kamryn doesn’t succeed.

REVIEW:
Stars: 5/5 Stars
**Added to Favorites Shelf**

I read a lot of good books. This one though. Just wow. My mind is blown. I’m in love with the story, the characters the writing. All of it.

The characters were well written and you really just enjoy them. I don’t want to be too Spoliery. But they way they cross over (You’ll understand at the end) Was AMAZING. I honestly Didn’t see it coming at all. Or the ending for the fact. I was crying a good 15% of the last part of the book.

The Visuals for the scenes and Ur was amazing. GAH. The storyline guys. THE STORYLINE. Oh my gosh. I loved it. I read 3/4 of this book in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down and kept telling myself one more chapter, one more, and then I finished.

I loved the Christian and GOD aspect. I was thinking during the book that maybe, that was who the character was, and I was glad I was right. (For those that aren’t religious, I promise it isn’t overbearing in the book, you will still enjoy it!)

If you get a chance to read this book please please please do. You won’t regret it!

REVIEW:
Stars: 4/5 Stars

It took me awhile to get into the book (Mostly Because I’ve been focused on reading 10 other books..Oops)

Once I got into The Water Cave I couldn’t put it down. I loved how the Underworld was described in the book. (I had some serious Charmed vibes from it)

From the Being I liked Mark (Just my style) At time Meadow seems a little annoying to me but it went away as I kept reading. I felt like in the school scenario  she just didn’t fit in, she was throw into the mixed and force cut into the puzzle of high school. That was one of the main things that really bugged me.

Long Way Gone Review

Book: Long Way Gone

Author: Charles Martin

Buy your copy: Book Depository

Goodreads Rating: 4.29 Stars

Goodreads Summary:

At the age of eighteen, musician and songwriter Cooper O’Connor took everything his father held dear and drove 1,200 miles from home to Nashville, his life riding on a six-string guitar and the bold wager that he had talent. But his wager soon proved foolish.

Five years after losing everything, he falls in love with Daley Cross, an angelic voice in need of a song. But just as he realizes his love for Daley, Cooper faces a tragedy that threatens his life as well as his career. With nowhere else to go, he returns to his remote home in the Colorado Mountains, searching for answers about his father and his faith.

When Daley shows up on his street corner twenty years later, he wonders if it’s too late to tell her the truth about his past—and if he is ready to face it.

A radical retelling of the story of the prodigal son, Long Way Gone takes us from tent revivals to the Ryman Auditorium to the tender relationship between a broken man and the father who never stopped calling him home.

Review:

Stars: 3.5/5

I’ll be honest this book took awhile for me to get into it. I really liked the characters but, sadly,  I felt like it took to long for the story to really pick up. I put the book down so many times to stop reading but I found myself wanting to know what was going to happen to the characters.

I loved the aspect of Music that was included in the book. I haven’t been able to find a lot of good books that include music. While it is very apparent that this is a Christian Fiction book I felt like it was a breath of fresh air were religion wasn’t pushed as hard.

I’m not sure yet if I will pick up another book by Charles Martin yet. Captivating but simply too slow for me.
