Hey guys! I just wanted to share my good news with my readers. I got a promotion!!!
I work at a video game store and have moved from Assistant Store Manager to Store Manager!!!
I feel like a badass. Kind of like:
(Pardon all the exclamation points)
Your heart beats only with their permission.
Everything changed on The Day. The day the windows shattered. The day the power stopped. The day Dol’s family dropped dead. The day Earth lost a war it didn’t know it was fighting.
Since then, Dol has lived a simple life in the countryside — safe from the shadow of the Icon and its terrifying power. Hiding from the one truth she can’t avoid.
She’s different. She survived. Why?
When Dol and her best friend, Ro, are captured and taken to the Embassy, off the coast of the sprawling metropolis once known as the City of Angels, they find only more questions. While Ro and fellow hostage Tima rage against their captors, Dol finds herself drawn to Lucas, the Ambassador’s privileged son. But the four teens are more alike than they might think, and the timing of their meeting isn’t a coincidence. It’s a conspiracy.
Within the Icon’s reach, Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas discover that their uncontrollable emotions — which they’ve always thought to be their greatest weaknesses — may actually be their greatest strengths.
Shame on me I hadn’t heard about this book until the Romantic Times Convention (RT) this year. Margaret was super nice and told me all about it. So yeah, when an author personally tells you about their new stuff it really makes you want to read it.
I’m now accepting review requests again. If you’re interested in having me review your book send me a description and date for when you’d like the review posted.
I accept paper copies and kindle friendly ebook formats.
If you’re a New Adult author/publisher, I’m extra interested in talking to you.
You can contact me by email and on my Twitter Account.
Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City–and she is pos-i-toot-ly thrilled. New York is the city of speakeasies, shopping, and movie palaces! Soon enough, Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfield girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is Evie has to live with her Uncle Will, curator of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult–also known as “The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies.”
When a rash of occult-based murders comes to light, Evie and her uncle are right in the thick of the investigation. And through it all, Evie has a secret: a mysterious power that could help catch the killer–if he doesn’t catch her first.
This book took me a long time and I’m not sure why. Well, maybe a little of it’s because it’s ginormous. But other than that I have no idea why it took so long. I loved the book. There were times when I thought it was a little slow but it would pick up and be amazing so fast that it was hard to notice. I love the main character Evie. I think she’s great and multi-layered. The supporting characters are all really good too. The killer is horrible and unpredictable.
This is my second Libba Bray book and it will not be my last. She is an amazingly accomplished story teller. I can’t wait to find out what happens with our characters in the next installment. I think the next one is going to center around Memphis and Theta. That will be very interesting but I hope Evie is still in it a lot.
Waiting: Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that I’m anticipating.
At first, I merely saw his face, his hands on the window ledge. Then, his whole body as he swung himself through the window. Only I could not see what he swung on.
Until, one day, I told my dream self to look down. And it was then that I saw. He had climbed on a rope. I knew without asking that the rope had been one of my own tying.
Rachel is trapped in a tower, held hostage by a woman she’s always called Mama. Her golden hair is growing rapidly, and to pass the time, she watches the snow fall and sings songs from her childhood, hoping someone, anyone, will hear her.
Wyatt needs time to reflect or, better yet, forget about what happened to his best friend, Tyler. That’s why he’s been shipped off to the Adirondacks in the dead of winter to live with the oldest lady in town. Either that, or no one he knows ever wants to see him again.
Dani disappeared seventeen years ago without a trace, but she left behind a journal that’s never been read, not even by her overbearing mother…until now.

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.
I’ve heard so many awesome things and it’s already on my bookshelf. I really need to get on reading this
