Blog Tour Book Review: The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson

The BooksellerAbout The Bookseller

Print Length: 352 pages
Publisher: Harper (March 3, 2015)

A mesmerizingly powerful debut novel about the ways in which past choices can irrevocably define the present—and the bittersweet confrontation of what might have been

1962: It may be the Swinging Sixties in New York, but in Denver it’s different: being a single gal over thirty in this city is almost bohemian. Still, thirty-eight-year-old Kitty Miller has come to terms with her unconventional single life. She was involved, once—with a doctor named Kevin—but when things didn’t work out the way she had hoped, she decided to chart her own path. Now she dedicates herself to the bookstore she runs with her best friend, Frieda, returning home each evening to her cozy apartment. Without a husband expecting dinner, she can enjoy last-minute drinks after work with her friends; without children who need to get ready for school, she can stay up all night reading with her beloved cat, Aslan, by her side.

Then the dreams begin.

1963: Katharyn Andersson is married to Lars, the love of her life. They live in a picture-perfect home in a suburban area of Denver, close to their circle of friends. It’s the ideal place in which to raise their children. Katharyn’s world is exactly what Kitty once believed she wanted . . . but it exists only when she sleeps.

At first, Kitty enjoys her nighttime forays into this alternate world. Even though there is no Frieda, no bookstore, no other familiar face, Kitty becomes increasingly reluctant to open her eyes and abandon Katharyn’s alluring life.

But with each visit to her dreamworld, it grows more real. As the lines between the two worlds begin to blur, Kitty faces an uncertain future. What price must she pay to stay? What is the cost of letting go?

Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog and my stop on the tour for The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson. I want to give a BIG thank you to the author, as well as to TLC Book Tours for giving me the chance to read and review this book.

The Bookseller is a work of fiction about a woman, Kitty Miller who finds herself in quite a strange predicament. Kitty considers her life to be a pretty normal, fulfilling life. She owns a book shop with her best friend and lives on her own with her beautiful cat. Until one day she wakes up in a different room and finds herself with a husband and kids, living a totally different life. In time she finds herself confused, torn between the two lives and in love with a man she doesn’t even know. What is she to do?

I loved this book! I had my nose buried in this book from the beginning til the very end. The story was interesting…it was like a touch of sci fi in a women’s fiction novel because I kept imagining this parallel universe that Kitty keeps getting sucked into. That was super interesting for me and it also made me sad to know the contrasting details of both of her lives (I won’t give you any spoilers, don’t worry!). It was also really interesting to see the difference in her roles in her different lives. In one she is a traditional stay at home mom and wife while in her “real” life she is an independent business owner.

I can’t really say that I absolutely loved Kitty. There were definitely things that she did that annoyed me like when she kept saying “oh well this life is imaginary”. I was kind of like, I get it Kitty. There are aspects of Kitty that I did like though like her teaching her little neighbor and the way she loves her parents. I feel like I would have just gone with my dreams rather than fighting it so much but I definitely get how she freaked out when her parents came up in dreams. Towards the end of the book everything kind of gets a little more interesting and we find out alot more about her “dream” life, it also gets pretty scary as her “real” life just starts to blur.

This book did not end the way I had thought it would, it was totally unexpected and a really good twist to the story. The ending was definitely beautiful and wrapped up in a really great way. My feelings toward Kitty sometimes didn’t affect the way I enjoyed the book. I really loved this book. It kept me really entertained throughout, I never got bored. It made me reflect on how much I love my life, which I think is something that Kitty also needed to realize. I definitely recommend giving this book a read, four stars!

Hello everyone and welcome my stop on the blog tour for Dog Crazy. I’d like to send a huge thank you to the author Meg Donahue and also to TLC Book Tours for letting me participate in this tour by reading and reviewing this book.

A big fact about me that you have probably caught onto by now is that I love animals in general but I REALLY REALLY love dogs. You can definitely call me a bit dog crazy, as a matter of fact I’m pretty sure those exact words have been said to describe me, so you can imagine how excited I was to be reading a book where dogs played a major role in the story and essentially in the development of various characters.

As you read in the description above this story is about Maggie Brennan, a charmingly neurotic pet bereavement counselor who is not only struggling with building a life and business in a new city while dealing with her pretty severe agoraphobia but also, with the recent death of her beloved dog Toby. In one of her sessions she meets frazzled Anya who is convinced that her dog has been stolen and has dedicated her life to finding him when everyone else thinks it’s too late.

For some reason when I first read the description my general impression of the book was that it was going to be a suspense novel centered around the disappearance of the a dog, I thought it may read like a “whodunnit” mystery where they scoured the city turning over clue after clue until AHA the culprit is found and there is lots of action and mystery. It wasn’t like that at all and you would think I would be disappointed but I wasn’t at all. I rather enjoyed this book…I found it funny and endearing. It was both grave and lighthearted for me since I take the subject of my dog dying so heavily but it was beautiful in the way it treated this, I found words of comfort in it that one who has suffered the loss of a loved one (pet or human) needs to hear.

I absolutely loved the main character Maggie. I loved her and all her quirks and I loved the way the author wrote her relationship with dogs and their positive impacts on her life. I love, love, loved all of the dogs we get to spend time with in this story, especially the rescue part! (I won’t give you any spoilers)

I loved this book and of course, given the subject, I cried in a few parts of the story so when you read it make sure to have a tissue within reach because it’s inevitable to cry during a read of it. At the same time, it made my heart warm…especially the ending. What a beautiful ending! Definitely recommend! Halfway through the book I was pretty sure I was going to give it a four star rating but by the time I finished I was ready to give it a five.

And oh my god, the cover!! So freaking adorable!

Blog Tour Book Review – The Boy Who Loved Rain by Gerard Kelly

The Boy Who Loved RainTitle: The Boy Who Loved Rain by Gerard Kelly
Genre: Fiction
Publisher: Lion Fiction
Page count: 320
Format: Paperback
Publication Date: November 21, 2014
Rating – 5/5

They say that what you don’t know can’t hurt you. They’re wrong.

David Dryden, pastor of a high-profile church in London, is admired for his emphasis on the Christian family.

But all is not well in his own family. He and his wife, Fiona, have been glossing over his son Colom’s erratic behavior. Then, when a commitment to die is discovered in Colom’s room after the suicide of a school friend, David finds himself out of his depth–and Fiona, in panic, takes Colom and flees.

A wonderful, intelligent, and searching novel about the toxic nature of secrets, and the possibility of starting again.

Happy Wednesday and welcome to my stop on the tour for The Boy Who Loved Rain. Thank you to TLC book tours and the author Gerard Kelly for the opportunity to read this book for review.

The Boy Who Loved Rain was nothing like I expected it to be, which actually turned out to be a really good thing. At first inspection of the novel – the description and the cover I thought I was in for a light, straightforward read that I would enjoy escaping into for a few hours. My experience with this book was actually quite different and because of it I am giving this book a full five stars.

It is about a family of three struggling with deep buried issues that come to light throughout the story. We are confronted with a myriad of issues such as marriage issues, suicide, and long buried family secrets that I won’t give away in this post.

When I first started reading this book my impression was much the same and I felt that it began a little slow but soon I found myself unable to put it down. It was easy for me to empathize with its various characters, characters whose thoughts and actions were all very complicated and full, they were very full characters which was a beautiful thing in this story.

It was an enticingly complicated story from which I peeled layer after layer before exposing it’s bare bones. It’s beautiful and tragic, hard to read at times and at others light. The things we find out in this story were entirely surprising to me and hard to handle when we get to know the characters and understand their struggles but it’s also easy to connect behavioral patterns with problems they have faced or are facing. It’s definitely easy to get emotionally invested in this book and I can almost guarantee that you will. This book took a little bit to actually get into. It’s one of those books that builds up and then really socks it to you. It will stay with me for awhile.

I loved the writing  and also the quotes about rain that began every chapter. The use of the omniscient perspective was genius for this type of story.

This is a good book to curl up with on a rainy day or to read when you want to read a book with substance!

You can purchase this book at Amazon, IndieBound, and Barnes & Noble and add it to your TBR list on  Goodreads.

Blog Tour Book Review & Giveaway: Smorgasbord by Jagjiwan Sohal

Smorgasbord PicTitle: Smorgasbord written by Jagjiwan Sohal
Genre: Middle Grade/Young Adult Comedy Horror
Publisher: Mythos Press (Imprint of GMTA Publishing)
Page count: 179
Format: Ebook (read on Kindle app for Microsoft Surface)
Released: March 2014
Rating – 5/5

When Anna Lopez’s zombie attack video goes viral, no one could believe that the high school cheerleader had taken a bite out of the undead monster – and liked it! Now nothing will ever be the same for supernatural beings…because humans have discovered they taste freakin’ DELICIOUS!

 

And when a zombie boy gets in the crosshairs of a gang of hungry-human hunters, Julie, a young vampire loner, jumps in for the rescue. But now Julie’s got more than she bargained because taking care of a rambunctious undead creature who only knows one word (“brains”) is NOT easy. And when Julie and her zombie pal stumble upon on a crazed soccer mom, they find themselves on the run from a trigger-happy family who want nothing more than to grill them up for a neighborhood barbecue bash!

I knew I had to read this book when I caught a glimpse of the cover. It just looks like it would be a fun book to read (who doesn’t love a good zombie story?) and I’ve been trying to hunt down books that my ten year old niece may enjoy as well.

Smorgasbord is a totally unique spin on what could happen if the Zombie Apocalypse were to occur that features a zombie apocalypse gone wrong. Instead of the traditional uber scary, uber panic driven zombie attack on mankind, this story presents us with a zombie apocalypse in which, through an accidental bite, humans discover that zombies (along with other paranormal creatures) are fingerlickin’ good. It is the zombie apocalypse gone awry where humans are now doing the hunting while zombies and other paranormal creatures are doing the running.

The story is original and fresh in a market that seems at times a bit oversaturated with zombie novels, but Smorgasbord is not your “run of the mill” zombie story, it is a fresh of breath air. I couldn’t put this book down it was so fun to read. Lately I’ve been reading some pretty serious books so it was great to take a break from that and just go on a fun ride that suprisingly had me rooting for the paranormal creatures instead of the humans.

It had sort of a Shaun of the Dead type of humor vibe for me, except our protagonists are from the other team, which was great and it’s a story that is suitable for older kids and teens as well. I enjoyed it as an adult and it actually made me seriously think about how mankind might react to zombies and paranormal creatures if we somehow gained the upper hand…would we find a way to exploit them?

I hope to read more from this author in the future as I really enjoyed his style of writing, the dialogue he created, and the characters he created.

If you like zombie themed books or are looking for a  light, fun read where you might find yourself siding with the zombies and not the humans…Smorgasbord may be just the book for you! I have twenty copies to give away for free so leave a comment and let me know you are interested!

I’d like to thank GMTA Publishing and the author for allowing me to read and review this book!!

Also check out this rad playlist for the book! I love it!

Blog Tour Book Review: Vampire World by Rich Douglas

VWTOURBANNERVW_Promo2Title: Vampire World written by Rich Douglas
Genre: Young Adult Horror
Publisher: 284
Page count: Darkfeed Press (an imprint of GMTA Publishing)
Format: Epub (read on Nook App for Microsoft Surface)
Rating: 4/5

A popular teen is bitten by a vampire during a steamy night of making out with her boyfriend. After the bite, she wakes up in a cruel orphanage in Vampire World, with no memory of her past. She’s left with very little; only fangs, pale skin and a keen desire for blood.

Marissa, who’s named Janice in Vampire World, escapes the ghastly orphanage thanks to Mr. John FreeCut, an old, benevolent vampire who adopts Janice because he wants to foster children he could never have. He says her parents died in a crash. Beautiful, innocent and thrust into an enigmatic world she has no memory of, Janice must face many challenges. The grueling blood hostess job. The multiple stalkers and creepers who are hungry for her and her blood. The dizzying fireball competition. And most challenging, the fact that she doesn’t look or act like a vampire.

Janice is emotionally overwhelmed. Thankfully she makes some friends, including Brett BloodCut. Brett and Janice are immersed in a passionate romance, and Brett helps Janice adjust to her new world by giving her the love, confidence and knowledge she needs to survive as a vampire. Janice finds a way to succeed in such a problematic world. Things go well for Janice, though not for long. A stranger knows the truth about her past.

Slowly but surely Janice discovers the truth that she is being lied to by the ones she loves. She must learn the secret behind TriFang, and ultimately accept the stinging reality that things are not always what they seem. Could the truth ever be so bloody? (Goodreads)

Good morning and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Vampire World. I want to throw out a big thanks to Rich Douglas and GMTA for allowing me to participate!

Vampire World was so fun to read. It was actually just what I needed at the time I read it…the last book I read (which was awesome) was a fictionalized memoir of events during WWII that made me cry, so I definitely needed a far less heartbreaking story. This book satisfied that need SO well. I had sworn off Teen Vampire Fiction for the past year since there seemed to be so much of it flooding the market at one point and I remember picking up the first book in the Vampire Diaries series and hating it but then I opened up Vampire World and got totally sucked into the world and the story.

I had a hard time at first with the main character because she seemed very into herself at the beginning and I think I rolled my eyes everytime she talked about people staring at her because she was pretty but towards the middle of the story she becomes somewhat of a badass and I was immensely proud of her and impressed. The whole story was rather interesting in how it developed where she goes from this seemingly orphaned young vampire to a somewhat popular, new daughter, super awesome fireball/weapons trained mature vampire. The whole plot twist was pretty cool as well and I would actually like to see more from this story. I found the dynamics of the Vampire World to be super interesting and intense, the vampire names and the clubs are really cheesy but just add to the overall effect of the book I thought.

I don’t know if it was just me or everyone who has read this  but I got SUPER into the whole fireball thing. Janice learning how to play Fireball, going through pretty intense Fireball training and then competing in the tournament was such an awesome part of the story for me, I also loved anytime that she was weapons training and/or fighting someone. The action scenes were pretty intense and her relationship with Brett was definitely swoon worthy at some points. All in all, I really enjoyed this book and it’s a super fast read because it’s pretty intense and fun. I actually got so sucked into it that I was reading the book and apparently my husband was standing behind me for ten seconds and then he said something really loud and I got so scared! Anyway, give this book a try…I really liked it and I hope that you do, four stars to this entertaining read! I have 20 books to give away (free books people!!) so please comment and I will be happy to send you an ebook of your chosen format! Happy reading everyone!

Norah Lukens needs to uncover the truth about the fabled lost city of Cobbogoth. After her archaeologist uncle’s murder, Norah is asked to translate his old research journal for evidence and discovers that his murder was a cover-up for something far more sinister.

When she turns to neighbor and only friend James Riley for help, she realizes that not only is their bitter-sweet past haunting her every step, but James is keeping dangerous secrets. Can Norah discover what they are before its too late to share her own. (Goodreads)

 

Hello!! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Uncovering Cobbogoth (Cobbogoth #1)! I want to take a moment to thank the author Hannah L. Clark and also YA Bound Book Tours for allowing me to read and review this wonderful book in exchange for an honest review!

I will admit that one of the first things that attracted me to this book besides the summary was the gorgeous cover. I love the different shades of purple and the spirals that decorate the cover (which if you read the book you will find out how they figure into the story!). It’s definitely a unique and memorable cover that jumps out at you. I fell in love with it.

Aside from that, the summary is fantastic as well and once I skimmed it I knew I just had to read this book. There is something about fables, murder and romance which when mixed all together, really do it for me! All of these things (and much more) definitely worked beautifully in this story. I loved, loved, loved this book. I have always had an intense fascination with any sort of early literatures specifically from Ireland, Scotland, etc. and this story revolves around Icelandic fables that are unearthed by our protagonist’s uncle which in themselves were interesting to read about in the book.  It was a hundred times more interesting to see how the author built this fantastic story using the uncle’s favorite fables as a vehicle.

Right off the bat I was interested in the tense romantic feelings between James and Nor, both characters that I extremely like. I love Nor…I love that she’s a different sort of YA heroine (this was super refreshing!)…she’s amazingly smart and talented, strong and still manages to be just a normal seventeen year old (soon eighteen year old) girl worried about looking dumb in front of the guy she likes.

There are so many things I like about this book, I think the story is just really well written and interesting and original all around. It definitely kept me interested from the first page and kept me guessing, there are a few twists to the plot that I did not see coming at all which is great…I really can’t wait to read the next book. I literally read this book in a day because I couldn’t put it down. 5 out of 5 rating for this great book!  Fans of YA Fantasy or YA Mystery novels will not want to miss this book! It’s fast, entertaining, with a dash of romance and mystery. Be looking out for this book as it released on 5/13!!

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Fae by C.J. Abedi

Fae Blog TourTitle: Fae written by C.J. Abedi
Genre: YA Fiction –  Fantasy
Published by Diversion Books
Page count: 266
Format: Ebook (Read on Barnes and Noble HD+)
Rating: 4/5
Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge #41

“The battle between Light and Dark is about to begin.

Caroline Ellis sixteenth birthday sets into motion a series of events that have been fated for centuries. A descendant of Virginia Dare, the first child born in the lost colony of Roanoke, and unaware of her birthright as the heir to the throne of the Light Fae, it isn’t until she begins a tumultuous relationship with Devilyn Reilly that the truth is revealed.

Devilyn is the only one of the Fae who is both of the Light and of the Dark, and struggles to maintain that precarious balance to avoid succumbing to the power of the Dark within him. He is the only one who can save Caroline from those who would destroy her and destroy all hope for unity among the Fae. He promises Caroline that he will protect her at all costs, even when it means protecting her from himself.

Told from the alternating perspectives of Caroline and Devilyn, FAE draws on mysteries, myths and legends to create a world, and a romance, dangerously poised between Light and Dark.”

Welcome to my stop on the Fae Blog Tour!! I received a copy of Fae from the publisher for an honest review. I would like to thank Diversion Books and C.J. Abedi for allowing me to be a part of the Blog Tour for Fae!

I was really excited to read and review Fae because the story has a lot of elements that I like in a good book namely magic, the struggle between good and evil, fairies and in the case of Fae…mythology! When I started Fae, I knew that these things would be incorporated into the story from the description but I was pleasantly surpised to find that the story is about the Tuatha de Danaan. When I was in college I was obsessed with early Irish literature and coming across the Tuatha de Danaan in this book was such a treat for me.

I really enjoyed my read of Fae. There were quite a few things about it that drew me in and kept me interested in it. The use of mythology throughout the story was awesome and I like the characters the authors have written for us. I especially love Caroline, I think she was easy to relate to and overall just easy to like. I also liked Devilyn a lot even though I was frustrated with him for the way he treats Caroline at first. I really liked watching their romance develop throughout the story and I especially love the romantic moments they have, they’re so real and so sweet.

This book actually made me cry because it involves Caroline and her dog. I’m a fur mommy myself and my dog is literally my everything so their relationship really struck a chord with me. Although I knew I loved the book already, that was the moment that I realized how into the story I was. This is part of a series so I can’t wait to read the rest. I am so curious about how much more Devilyn and Caroline’s relationship is going to progress and how it is going to affect their relationship now that Devilyn is more Dark Fae than light (which is kind of hinted at in this but not really confirmed). I loved the dynamics of their relationship and the heart stopping moments we encounter as it grows and changes throughout the book.

I love the way the story is told – from both Caroline and Devilyn’s perspectives. I enjoy when stories are told that way, it lends a different dimension to the characters in the story instead of having us just experience them through only one characters eyes. I think it makes the story more personal and makes us less biased towards the characters or what happens to them and between them.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading Fae. It’s a pretty light read and will definitely be a treat for any YA Fantasy fans out there! As part of the Fae Blog Tour, I am hosting a giveaway of an ebook copy of Fae so you can have your chance to read it asap! Please enter through the Rafflecopter link below!
