Review for Possession by Elana Jhonson


Possession by Elana Johnson
Description:
Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn. This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.
Review:
Imagine the world being split, the people being categorized – Good and Bad. The “Thinkers” controlling everything and everyone, telling them what to do, what to feel, what is right and what is wrong. The good people listen and the baddies don’t. Vi doesn't think she is Bad bad but she doesn't want to listen and do what the Thinkers say either. She has powers that she herself never realized and she needs to decide what to do with it. She needs to make a decision. One that will change everything, not just for herself but for everyone else too.
First off the cover!!! *-* I’m in love with the cover! After reading it I can say its so totally apt for the book! Just gorgeous! Covers make me pick up a book and this one was the best cover! <3
At the start I was a bit confused as to why things were the way they were. It made me think. I love a book that makes me think!! Whenever I’d close the book I’d still be thinking about it. I just wish there was a bit more of an introduction of some sort as to why things were this way?
I loved the characters and I loved the whole “Jag speak” and “Vi talk” part, it was so sweet and tender. I loved the way the author builds the whole image of the dystopian world. It was like I could see it in my head. And its quite possible that we might live in a world like that someday... On the other hand I hope not... At least not in every aspect...
Overall a good read – Different, emotional, exciting, complex and sweet. Just  felt like something was missing for me.

Echo by J.K. Accinni

Blurb:
Netty’s influence transcends a full century as the United States evolves to a point of politically driven economic collapse. The year is 2033 as a young mother, abused by her shiftless husband, heroically decides to remove her two sickly children, Scotty and Abby, from the mean streets of their government subsidized tenement town of Short Hills, New Jersey to the hills and old farmland of Sussex County. There they unite with a Latino family that adopted Jose, a young boy from Costa Rica, traumatized at the age of seven by the brutal murder of his parents and the kidnapping of his infant sister.
The two families unite to pool finances, creating the love and bonds that will enable them to survive the psychotic attention of Armoni, a soul damaged beyond redemption, discovery of Baby’s miraculous offspring, Echo; and their subsequent body changes. Through the efforts of Echo who develops an unexplained passion for the curly haired dog, Barney, they flee the clutches of Armoni after the murder of Armoni’s sidekicks by Echo, to Sarasota, Florida, one of the last remaining enclaves of wealth in the U.S.
Scotty learns to utilize Echo as a co-conspirator in his intrigue to thwart the efforts of heinous people that prey on the lives of creatures in their environmentally rich new home, where the insidious miscreant, Armoni, tracks them; dragging along Ginger Mae, a New York City prostitute looking for opportunity with her mute child, Daisy; bringing brutality and violence to all.
Having fallen in love, the young  Abby and Jose draw close, only to be separated by the transcendental Netty, who tries to use Abby as a conduit in her plan to rescue as much wildlife as they can before despicable political events bring on the specter of Armageddon.

Creatura by Nely Cab Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway!! :D

 I am so so excited to be a part of this blog tour hosted by Phenomenal Reviews and Author Stacey Rourke and the team!! I absolutely LOVED Creatura and I would recommend it to everyone who loves a good story! I could blabber all day but lets just get to it now! :P

 Creatura by Nely Cab



Blurb:
The sleeping aid did its job. I fell asleep within half an hour of taking it. I wish it hadn’t worked at all. I saw you with a little more detail this time. You’re a muscular human etch with a darkness about you. My heart raced as I watched you in the distance walking toward me, snarling. I slept a full five hours before you ran toward me menacingly and I woke in a cold sweat. The doctor wasn’t right about letting my dream play out. I’m more afraid than I had been in our previous encounters. I fear you, but I won’t live like this anymore. I’m going to confront you tonight. Tear me apart if you want, but you will haunt me no more.
My Review:
Creatura was just such an amazing read!! It had it all – Romance, Mystery, Action, Paranormal and even a little bit of Mythology. Creatura follows the story of Isis Martin who is plagued by insomnia and nightmares. Only her nightmares aren't just that... They are more, so much more... What follows is a series of events that left me at the edge of my seat and reading faster than ever! Isis comes to know about a whole other world and whole new experiences – which are exciting and scary too...
Nely Cab has created such an amazing book world its hard not to want to be in it... The place, the characters and everything else is described in such great detail that I could almost see it! This is one of the books that I would love to see as a movie – Oh it’d be so damn good!! I loved the author’s writing style too. It flowed beautifully and truthfully there was never a dull moment in the book! I loved absolutely loved the little notes *Sigh* (No I’m not telling what, to whom or anything else you’ll have to read to find out! ;] ) And not to forget the gorgeous cover and the significance behind it! <3
But the ending!! Oh the ending..... I sure hope the next one’s out soon! Like real soon!! Overall just AMAZING!

Book Blitz: Baby by J.K. Accinni




Baby by J.K. Accinni

FREE TO DOWNLOAD ON JAN 15TH & JAN 16TH

I've downloaded my copy have you?
Blurb:
 Have you ever wondered why God does not punish the evil and depraved of our planet? Why does He tolerate the destructive bloodthirsty nature of Homo sapiens allowing them to rule over all creatures, abusing and exploiting according to their whims? Why has science been unable to solve the vexing mystery of our ancestor, the Missing Link? How could one planet evolve such complex and divergent examples of biodiversity? Can you imagine God ever saying, “To Hell with this mess that is Earth?”
The series “Species Intervention #6609” spans two hundred years, encompassing tender love between divergent species, political downfalls and violence of unspeakable order. It is an unfortunate tale of Armageddon and the remote possibility of redemption.
In Baby, Netty is a naive teenage farm girl given in marriage to an older brutal opportunist disguised as a successful citizen during the years of Prohibition in Sussex County, New Jersey.  After years of enslavement, Netty flees into the night from her rapist husband, traveling back to the farm worked by her parents, where she rescues an unfamiliar damaged creature she finds in a cave in the woods of her childhood, falling in love with the enigmatic creature she names Baby. Together they find happiness and fulfillment despite the changes to Netty’s body wrought by the proximity of the unusual creature.
When a handsome Italian stranger comes into Netty’s life, complications ensue as she falls in love while trying to hide the bizarre and wondrous changes to her farm and her body.  Netty, Baby and Wil strive to conquer obstacles thrown in their path by life, succeeding wildly until the heart-rending and astonishingly brutal climax to their story.

 

About the Author:


J. K. Accinni was born and raised in Sussex County before moving to Randolph, New Jersey, where she lived with her husband, five dogs and eight rabbits, all rescued and currently resides in Sarasota, Florida. Mrs. Accinni’s passion for wildlife conservation has led her all over the world, including three trips to Africa, where ten years ago she and her husband fell in love with a baby elephant named Wendi, that had been rescued by a wildlife group. That baby is the inspiration for the character Tobi, the elephant featured in her fourth book titled Hive.
The character of Caesar is inspired by a real life iconic tiger from Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary in Sarasota. A portion of the proceeds from her third book, Armageddon Cometh, will be donated to the sanctuary in support of the enormous expense required to house and feed the displaced wildlife in their care. Mrs. Accinni invites her readers to visit bigcathabitat.org to view the astounding facility and plan a visit with your family.

Silenced Blog Tour: Review, Interview & Giveaway!! :D





 I'm so excited to be a part of this amazing book's blog tour!! :D
This book's subject is one of those close to my heart and it is such an insightful book!!

I also got the chance to interview the amazing and talented author - RaeBeth McGee-Buda! (I've come to like interviews.. Though I kinda suck at it.. :P Bear with me loves!)

Ebook Cover:                                                                                    


Blurb:
Amber Brown spent her entire existence believing Dave was her father. When her mother reveals this is untrue, she goes through an emotional spiral with depression. It's hard for her to believe her mother had lied to her all this time.

A move to a new home and town causes Amber to be consumed by her "darkness" and reverts to cutting to free herself from her pain.

When Casey, her new friend enters her life, she introduces Amber to parties, drugs, and Amber's new boyfriend Landon. The secret of cutting begins to take affect on Amber as she tries to hide it from her friends and family. In the mist of everything, Amber has the desire to find out who her biological father is.

Follow Amber through her trials of depression and cutting, along with the discovery of love.

Paperback Cover:

Review:
Silenced follows the story of Amber Brown. For her life seems to be going down a downward spiral. She had to leave her town and move and on top of that she finds out that the person she called her father isn’t really her biological father. Overcome with depression and looking for a way out Amber does something that gives her an escape from all the pain and darkness.
Silenced is a story that shows how depression affects a person and that it CAN be overcome. I found that I could connect with the story. Being a teenager is tougher than it was before. The pressure to do well, to score good grades, to have a good social life – is daunting. And going through all that while going through depression is harder. It doesn’t just go away and the fact that the author captured that in the book was amazing. The topic which the book is focused around is one of those close to my heart and it’s not something we should take lightly It gives an insight into the mind of a cutter... I think people need to read this book and get a perspective on what actually happens and how depression could ruin someone if it gets too far.




Interview:

1 - Did you always want to be an author?
No I didn’t always want to be an author. I loved writing but it was more for me at first. My younger sister inspired me to continue with a short story I wrote in high school for an assignment. When I finished the story she told me I had talent for writing fiction and should really consider writing more stories.
2 - What inspired you to write?
As I said in the first question my younger sister started the inspiration for writing. Now everyday life inspires me.
3 - Why did you choose to write on this particular subject?
Depression is looked at as a condition that some people think isn’t serious. Some think cutting is an act of one trying to gain attention. But these are wrong. Depression and self harm are serious conditions. I think it’s time to stop hushing the subject and it’s time to start talking about it. Education on depression and self harm need put out there. People need to be aware. They need to know the warning signs. This could potentially save the live of a loved one when the subject isn’t hushed and people talk openly about it.
4 - What would be the one suggestion you would give to the people going through depression? 
Never give up. You can overcome it and there are people out there that will listen. People want to help you. You are not alone. It’s not in your head and if you are starting to have suicidal thoughts... PLEASE talk to someone you trust.
5 - Is the next book going to be out soon? ;)
I’m still writing Silenced: The Overtaking.  Therefore I’m aiming to have it out within 2013.  My goal is to have it in everyone’s hand in the summer. If I can help it... it will be Spring.
6 - Are there any other books/series that you are working on?
Yes! I’m writing several different books. One being a paranormal series. The others I’m just keeping to myself for now. It’s a while off before the others are ready to be put out there.
 7 - What message would you like to give to our followers and readers?
I appreciate you taking the time to read this interview. I want to thank you all for your support. You’re the reason I write and I’m doing what I love. I wouldn’t be able to do it without you. Each and every person who has supported me and the future support system I will have ... You’re amazing.
