Review: The Girl Who Couldn't Say No — Tracy Engelbrecht

I expected this to be a semi-preachy book with some humour. A ‘beware this bad life choice’ sort of autobiography. It was a spur of the moment reading choice. It turned out to be a relaxing read, written in a friendly conversational tone with just enough humour to make you smile and take the edge of what could have been a very dry story.

Teaser Tuesday: The Girl Who Couldn't Say No: Memoir of a Teenage Mom

A meme by Should Be Reading

Basically it involves posting two sentences from a random page in the book I'm currently reading! If you like the teaser, you should check out the book and add it to your 'To Read' list.

Miss Timid was a soft-spoken lady with frantic eyes, who was obviously out of her depth and actually looked like she could snap at any moment. She assured me he’d be okay.

Review: The Reporter & The Girl — S. C. Rhyne

When reading my twitter feed I found someone asking for readers to review their debut novel. As a reader with a keen interest in new and relatively unknown authors, I jumped at this opportunity. When I started the book I was had a clear idea of what I thought it was going to be like. However, this book surpassed my expectations. Dancing with the two perspectives gave the book a whole new dimension, which I felt positively transformed the way I thought about the characters. This isn’t some hyper erotic rampage; it’s a story about two very unique characters. I think it is the kind of story you could see happening in real life.

Review: Heritage (The Grimoire Saga, 3) — S. M. Boyce

Kara Magari isn’t normal, even by Ourea’s standards—and in a world of shape-shifters and soul stealers, that’s saying something. To the royalty, she’s a loose cannon. To the masses, she’s a failure. But Kara’s arrival in Ourea started a war, and she’s going to end it.

An ancient isen named Stone takes an interest in Kara’s training, and it turns out he has more answers than he originally led her to believe. In an effort to unearth a secret that might end the bloodshed, Kara instead discovers an ugly truth about her family—and how much she has in common with an infamous mass-murderer.

Braeden Drakonin has slowly rebuilt his life after the betrayal that tore it apart. His father wants him dead, and frankly, his so-called allies wouldn’t mind that either. Private alliances are formed. Secrets are sold. Tension is driving the armies apart. A single battle will end this war, and it’s coming. Braeden may be a prince, but it will take more than that to survive. He must take the fight to his father’s door—and win.

Braeden Drakonin can no longer run from who—and what—he is. He has to face the facts. He’s a prince. He’s a murderer. He’s a wanted man. And after a betrayal that leaves him heartbroken, he’s out for blood.

To survive, both Kara and Braeden must become the evil each has grown to hate.

Review: Lichgates (The Grimoire Saga, 1) — S. M. Boyce

Kara Magari is about to discover a beautiful world full of terrifying things—Ourea.
Kara, a college student still reeling from her mother’s recent death, has no idea the hidden world of Ourea even exists until a freak storm traps her in a sunken library. With no way out, she opens an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire and unwittingly becomes its master, which means Kara now wields the cursed book’s untamed power. Discovered by Ourea's royalty, she becomes an unwilling pawn in a generations-old conflict—a war intensified by her arrival. In this world of chilling creatures and betrayal, Kara shouldn’t trust anyone… but she’s being hunted and can’t survive on her own. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn’t know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.

For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this human girl, there is something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.

Book News: Lanherne Chronicles Prequel Released!

If you have been reading my blog for a while then you will know I read (and absolutely loved) the first two books of the Lanherne Chronicles. The first book was a refreshing take on the zombie genre (you can check out my review here). The second was equally amazing, with just the right balance of horror, evil and family (review here). So obviously I was excited to hear there was a prequel in progress and now, here it is! I'm so overjoyed, this is the next book I will be reading this month, followed by the final book, Last Days with the Dead.
