Book Review and Author Interview: Mesmerize by Artist Arthur!

Mesmerize: A Mystyx Novel By Artist Arthur Release Date: 01/24/12 Paperback/e-book 256 pages Book Description from Amazon: You can’t move forward until you deal with the past… Starting over is nothing new to diplomat’s daughter Lindsey Yi. She’s grown up changing schools the way other girls change clothes. Still, moving to Lincoln, Connecticut, is different. Although she’s still reeling from the loss of her parents in an accident, Lindsey is finally in a place that feels like home. Because here, Lindsey’s ability to read other people’s thoughts doesn’t make her weird. It makes her one of the Mystyx. When Dylan Murphy—hot, popular and a senior—starts to notice her, things get serious, fast. But even as she’s figuring out how she really feels, the Mystyx realize that they’re not the only supernaturals in town. There are other gifted teens who have different motives. And they are hoping to get close enough to the Mystyx to convert them—and the world—to Darkness.… ***Copy received from publisher for review*** So I didn’t realize that this book was actually the 4th book in the Mystyx series until I had already started reading it.  I know, I know-bad blogger!  But to be fair the Amazon description doesn’t mention anything about it being part of a series.  Anyway, the book was not confusing and it gave background information throughout the […]

Just do the following: Grab your current read Open to a random page Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!

Currently Reading: You Against Me By Jenny Downham Teaser #1: -He’d go alone this time, take gloves and wear a hoodie.  If he didn’t leave any fingerprints, he’d get away with it. -He wasn’t good for her.  He wasn’t sure actually he’d ever be good for anyone.  He couldn’t be bothered most of the time.  Girls asked too many questions, and they always expected you to know how they were feeling, and he was always getting it wrong. Sounds dark and interesting!  Leave a link to your Teaser Tuesday post…

Book Review: Tempest by Julie Cross!

Book Review: Tempest by Julie Cross!

Tempest: A Tempest Trilogy By Julie Cross Release Date: 01/17/12 Hardcover/e-book 334 pages Book Description from Amazon: The year is 2009.  Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun. That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future. Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities. But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler.  Recruit… or kill him. Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the […]

Sixteen-year-old Callie lost her parents when the genocide spore wiped out everyone except those who were vaccinated first–the very young and very old. With no grandparents to claim Callie and her little brother, they go on the run, living as squatters, and fighting off unclaimed renegades who would kill for a cookie. Hope comes via Prime Destinations, run by a mysterious figure known only as The Old Man. He hires teens to rent their bodies to seniors, known as enders, who get to be young again.
