Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen: Review & Giveaway

Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen: Review & Giveaway

Current Giveaways, Reviews 8 ★★★★½

This sequel was actually a whole lot different than the first book, and I was happy about that (even though I really loved Nyxia). It felt less like a continuation and more like a whole new story—which made sense since the Genesis kids were now on a whole new planet. Read on to find out why I loved it… What Fed My Addiction: A family. The competition aspect of the first book was completely gone in book two, and I was very happy about that since it was my least favorite part of book one. Not only was there no more direct competition (with points and such), but the whole group came together as one. Emmett talks about Genesis as his family, and that’s truly how they feel. With one minor exception, the group comes together and bonds in an extraordinary way. I found myself loving each and every character. Emmett…. Read more »

A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews: Review & Giveaway

A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews: Review & Giveaway

Current Giveaways, Reviews 33 ★★★★★

Oh, guys, I had such high hopes for this book, and I am thrilled that it lived up to every single one of them! What Fed My Addiction: Be prepared to be put through the wringer. This isn’t an easy book, by any means. At points it’s downright traumatizing. You should just prepare now to have your heart ripped out and stomped on. (I love it when a book does this!) Beautiful writing. The writing flows beautifully, and I loved the gorgeous and understated use of metaphor. Plus, you can tell that Cait is a pianist herself because the way she describes Beck’s playing is masterful. The characters. There aren’t any undeveloped characters in this book. Every one makes an impression. Even the characters we hate (i.e. Beck’s mom) have a developed backstory that helps us understand them. I fell in love with Beck almost instantly (and his marshmallow of a little sister). The dialogue. Cait… Read more »

Kiss of the Royal by Lindsey Duga – Giveaway & Duga’s Top Ten Addictions

Kiss of the Royal by Lindsey Duga – Giveaway & Duga’s Top Ten Addictions

Author Top Ten Lists, Current Giveaways 16

I’m excited to share this amazing new fantasy with you! I’m reading it right now, and so far I’m loving its unique twist on fairy tales. Watch for a review on the blog, coming soon! For now, here’s a chance to win a copy of the book AND Lindsey Duga’s Top Ten Addictions. Enjoy! Lindsey’s Top Ten Addictions Iced Matcha Green Tea Lattes (with soy milk) I first discovered these at Starbucks while I was searching for a coffee substitute and have been addicted to them ever since. My most productive writing sessions always begin with one of these–seriously can’t write or live without them! Girl Superhero Shows The obsession started with Sailor Moon and didn’t end there. Sure, they’re kinda cheesy, but shows like Totally Spies, Cardcaptor Sakura, Wedding Peach etc, all had really great strong female characters and were great role models for young girls. My current favorite… Read more »

LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff: Review & Giveaway

LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff: Review & Giveaway

Current Giveaways, Reviews 24 ★★★★

Jay Kristoff once again does what he does best: totally messes with your head. And, yep, I love him for it. What Fed My Addiction: The mystery of Eve’s life (and death?). Right from the start of the book, we know that something violent happened to Eve’s family, but we soon learn that she doesn’t quite remember all the details. The story of Eve’s past unfolds as the book progresses—as she remembers more and more of what happens. I personally love books like this because the suspense is so high. I wanted to know everything that happened to Eve and how she ended up with lifelikes and more chasing her. Lots of twists. Every time I’d think I’d have the twists in the story figured out, Kristoff would throw in a new one that I didn’t see coming—and the ones I thought I knew didn’t work out quite the way I… Read more »

The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl by Stacy McAnulty: Review & Giveaway

The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl by Stacy McAnulty: Review & Giveaway

Current Giveaways, Middle Grade, Reviews 16 ★★★★½

This book was a breath of fresh air, with a uniquely intelligent MC who we can truly root for! What Fed My Addiction: A mathematical mind. When Lucy was struck by lightning, she woke up with genius-level mathematical skills: acquired savant syndrome is the technical name for it. This, in itself, is really interesting, but Lucy’s mathematical skills affect the way she sees the world in so many ways. For instance, she “sees” numbers as colors, sees complex geometrical shapes in the world around her, and she is constantly counting and calculating everything. In addition, we’re given many tiny glimpses into the way her mind truly works—little details that add so much to her character. An example is how every number in the book is written numerically (even if it’s something like, “that 1 girl we met”). It’s these little touches that make the book fun. I loved being inside Lucy’s unique… Read more »
