Update?

Lovelies, Happy New Year! (?) Is that still okay to say since this is technically my first post of 2019?

I haven't had the best start to this new year. As 2018 was ending I was pretty sick. Somedays I still feel like I haven't recovered yet. I've had some good days though, thank gods.

So far in 2019, I've been on auto-pilot, just working and running errands. I've managed to do some good things for my soul. And I've had some pretty great discussions with a friend and watched some TV Shows.

On the reading front, it has been a little slow. But I picked up TRC again so its been making me happy and eating into my sleeping time of course. On the creative side, its all been a little meh. All the projects have been a #fail (is that okay in a blog post? Well its up here anyway).

I think I need a little boost up to be honest. So I've signed up for the #24in48 Readathon again for January! Its from 26th to 27th Jan 2019. I am not sure if I'll have the time to finish this year, because I have some people over at my place. Not sure how I'll feel if I don't finish because I did finish last year. But I still want to do it, because I honestly had such a fun experience last time! And right after I caught up on my sleep, I had such a boost in my energy and creativity! I can't wait to see how this one goes! Any guesses as to how many hours I can clock in this time?

If anyone wants to join me or know more about the Readathon, you can check my blog post from last year HERE (I managed to add some pretty cool stats IMO) or the Official Website HERE.

See its already helping!! I've written a blog post. (YAY!)


I hope you all have had a much better start to 2019. I'll consider January my trial month and start 2019 again with February! ;)

Till later.

Release Blitz for Verity by Colleen Hoover


"Sublimely creepy with a true Hoover pulse. I've been waiting on a thriller like this for years." Tarryn Fisher, New York Times bestselling author.

Verity, an all-new romantic thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, is available now! 

Blurb:
Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.

Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity's notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn't expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity likely didn't intend for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity's recollection of the night their family was forever altered.

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen's feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife's words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.

Review for Vlad by Stacey Rourke


Vlad by Stacey Rourke
Blurb:

History believes me to be a merciless savage. A terror upon the Earth known as The Impaler. Archaic lore whispers I am the first of the vampire lineage.

These claims ... are all painted in bloody truth.

Now, while the world watches in fear, a war is brewing. Humans are targeting vampires in merciless attacks to force us back into the shadows.

They woke me to be their weapon.
They know not my loathing for my own kind.
Even I cannot say for certain whose side I’m on.

I have bowed before the alter of darkness rooted in the Nosferatu bloodline. Been forced to drink of its bitter sacrament. They refer to me as The Son of The Dragon, and I laugh. For I, alone, know that malevolent essence is one no man could ever tame.

Review:

OH MY GOD! I mean I really didn't think I would read, much less love, another vampire book. Stacey Rourke proved me wrong with Veiled , book 1 in the series, and my love for this series has just grown with book 2. 

Vlad follows Vinx and the gang as they set to expose the current situations in the Nosferatu community. This is book 2 in the series and I would highly recommend reading the first book before you read this one. 

The Veiled Series has such a different take on the whole Vampire genre of books that I find myself just so very deeply invested in all that is going on in this book world. I love how Stacey Rourke integrated the story of Vlad the Impaler and Dracula into this series/book world. I am always left in awe of how flawlessly the story just FITS! 

I loved  the backstories and flashbacks, if you have been reading my reviews for a while you know I love a good backstory. I also enjoyed the switching POVs, I think it made for a really well rounded story overall. As always, I loved the writing style and the trademark Stacey Rourke sarcasm and wit. 

And can we talk about the ending!? YAAASSS QUEEN!! I LOVED it.

Incredible and exciting. Can't wait for the next book!

Review for Apocalypse 5 by Stacey Rourke

Apocalypse 5 by Stacey Rourke

Blurb:

The end of the world is coming. How or when, scientists can’t agree upon. For decades, Earth’s best line of defense has been a team of young soldiers known as the Apocalypse Five, forced into virtual reality simulations to train for Doom’s Day. But, this is no game. Death on the grid is brutally final and calls up the next in a long line of cadets. Stationed aboard the AT-1-NS Starship, the A5 are celebrities thrust into the limelight by a calling they didn’t choose. All it takes is one unscheduled mission, showing seventeen-year-old team leader Detroit a harsh and unfathomable reality, to shake the A5’s belief in all they thought they knew. After questioning people with the power to destroy them, the team is framed for a crime they didn’t commit and marked for death. Now, the hunt is on. Can the Apocalypse Five expose the truth the starship would kill to keep hidden? Or, will their bravery end in a public execution?

Review:

With every book Stacey Rourke just blows me away. I love reading SciFi and Dystopian books and Apocalypse 5 combines them beautifully into this action packed novel.

Apocalypse 5 follows the journey of a team of 5 teens preparing for the end of the world. It has the classic sense of humour and sass that to me has become a Stacey Rourke signature. I honestly loved the story so much. It had me hooked from the opening line:

I mean when the opening line is so amazing you know its going to be a good book right?

As always I loved the writing style. And I absolutely adored the characters. I loved how thought out the whole concept was. The whole book world seemed so well rounded from the way they talked right down to the descriptions. Everything tied together to make it one of my favourite reads of 2018.

Amazing, amazing, amazing! Can't wait for book 2!

New name, same Fig…


 

I Can Be A Better You by Tarryn Fisher

Synopsis:

Almost every day is a very bad day when you’re thirty, your tits are starting to sag, there are lines creeping in around your eyes, and you realize that no one would like you if they actually knew who you really were. Fig Coxbury is fed up with her life; her cheating ex-husband, the excess fat around her waist, and most of all, her loneliness. When Fig chances upon Jolene Avery, the embodiment of everything she’s ever wanted to be, Fig befriends her out of curiosity. Fig soon begins to emulate all aspects of Jolene’s life, because when you find someone who knows exactly who they are, you can’t help but want to be just like them. Or in Fig’s case...become them.
