Happy 3 Years!!

I can't believe that another year of blogging has already passed! It doesn't feel like it has been three years. I can still remember the decision to start reviewing books and the day that I wrote my first review. I have definitely come a long way since then! I look back and am happy to see that I have grown in writing reviews. I've also been privileged to read and review some amazing books sent by authors and publicists! I can't imagine missing out on those books if I wouldn't have decided to start blogging. 

Thank you to all the readers who check out my reviews every now and then! It makes me so happy to know that I am spreading the word about the fantastic authors and books. :) I am still blown away that there are people that even read this thing, haha. :D

I look forward to keeping up with the blog for as long as I possibly can. I have so many things that I would still like to add or build on. I can't wait to see where this blog ends up in the future! 

Thanks for reading,

The Villain
By May Nicole Abbey
Genre:  Western, Christian Romance, Time Travel Adventure

Book Description:

A fall and crash
A violent journey through the doorways of time
A villain or hero in the making
Rosemary Mayfield teeters on the brink of ruin. With the murder of her parents she is left the sole guardian of her younger brother and sister. Once a wealthy socialite in New York City, she now finds herself stranded in the untamed wilderness of the American West. When a wounded man comes crashing through her roof, as rough as the savage land, it is against her better judgment to bring him into her home and her heart. But she soon discovers he holds a secret that shatters everything, and she must make a choice, unaware that often destiny hinges on a single moment.
Fresh from an unsavory past and a violent fall through time, Nicolas Ekkridon awakens to find himself cared for by three orphans ignorant of the role he played in their parents’ untimely death. They accept and embrace him, and a lifetime of hardened barriers begin to crumble. On the precipice between good and evil, only Rosemary and her spirited defiance stands between him and villainy. But time and space are against them. As its weaving tentacles envelop them in an indifferent grasp, they are swept into a shattering series of circumstances that threaten the very makeup of their lives. But when time can be bent, nothing is written in stone.

*I received a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.*

I'm very excited to be able to write a review for this book because I have read a few other books in the series by May Nicole Abbey. The other companion books have been really great and The Villain is no exception. 

The Villain deals with time travel, adventure, suspense, and clean romance. All these aspects work so well together and provide a very fun and interesting read. The characters are pretty awesome as well. 

Rosemary is nineteen and the sole guardian of her two younger siblings after her parents are murdered. Rosemary and her siblings end up making their way to a town in the west where their family was meant to be living. 

Rosemary is such a strong character! She has to take care of two children by herself and she is so young as well. She doesn't know everything about providing for a family but she does her best and doesn't give up. She puts on a brave face and takes care of her siblings as best as she can. I loved watching her grow as a character and seeing how mature she was by the end of the book! 

Rosemary's siblings are wonderful as well! I loved the relationship that the three of them had and watching how they all got along. Each kid was unique and interesting. Then we have Nicolas who as a definite mystery for most of the book. The siblings weren't too sure what to make of him but he proved to be a great character. He was definitely tough and impatient at times but he was also caring and helpful. I enjoyed watching his character grow as well and reading about the relationship between him and the siblings, especially Rosemary. :) 

The setting was very fun and the whole plot was interesting as well. There really weren't any dull moments and there were some exciting moments filled with action. Some old friends can be seen in the book which was exciting as well! 

The Villain was such an enjoyable and quick read! Great for fans of clean romance, interesting settings, and action! I'm very interested to see what these sisters come up with next. I know that I'll definitely pick it up! :) Make sure to check out the rest of the series if you haven't already. 

I gave this book 5 hearts out of 5 hearts!

Review - The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)
The Wrath & The Dawn (The Wrath and The Dawn #1)
By Renee Ahdieh 
Published May 12th, 2015 by G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers
388 pages

Summary from

A sumptuous and epically told love story inspired by A Thousand and One Nights

Every dawn brings horror to a different family in a land ruled by a killer. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. So it is a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the Caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi's wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch . . . she’s falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend.

She discovers that the murderous boy-king is not all that he seems and neither are the deaths of so many girls. Shazi is determined to uncover the reason for the murders and to break the cycle once and for all.


It is going to be kind of difficult to type up this review because I am experiencing soo many feels right now. I'm not even kidding. 

I had no doubt that I would enjoy this book. The summary is intriguing, the cover is absolutely gorgeous in person, and the ratings are very convincing. But I was still a little fearful that I might not enjoy it as much as everyone else. 

I think I enjoyed it just as much as everyone else that has been raving about this beauty. :) I really cannot express how much I enjoyed this book and how much I did not want this book to end. I tried to read as slowly as possible but the words demanded to be read. 

Shazi is a very tough girl. She is stubborn and set on the things that she wants. She wants revenge for what has happened to her best friend and she does what she has to do exact that revenge. Until feelings start getting in the way. Shazi is not always easy to get along with and that is obvious when reading about her relationships. She is strong willed and set in her ways. It was definitely entertaining to see the way she interacted with those around her, especially Khalid. Some may find her to be annoying at times because of her personality. I like the fact that Ahdieh has written a relatable and honest character that has normal faults and likes just like the rest of us. 

I also very much enjoy the fact that Ahdieh created Khalid. He is a very intriguing guy and I cannot wait to learn even more about him. I loved the way that the relationship between him and Shazi grew. I definitely need more of Khalid and Shazi and I NEED IT NOW!! :) 

The whole story line was so interesting though! I loved hearing the stories that Shazi told most nights. They definitely added another element to the book. I also found the reasons behind the killing of the girls interesting as well as all the characters that were involved. The Wrath and The Dawn is definitely a fantastic novel and such a great start the series. Not sure how long it will be but I'll take what I can get! The ending was such a cliff hanger and the little sneak peak of the next book was unbearable! :) 

The book was everything that I didn't know I wanted. Romance, suspense, intrigue, action, and heartbreaking scenes. Intoxicating and un-put-down-able.

I gave 5 out of 5 hearts to this gem of a read! Pick it up soon if you haven't yet!

Review - The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

The Orphan Queen (The Orphan Queen, #1)
The Orphan Queen (The Orphan Queen #1)
By Jodi Meadows
Published March 10th, 2015 by Katherine Tegen Books
393 pages

Summary from

Wilhelmina has a hundred identities.

She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.

She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.

She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others.

Jodi Meadows introduces a vivid new fantasy full of intrigue, romance, dangerous magic, and one girl’s battle to reclaim her place in the world.

First of all, I really love that cover! The purples and the blues fit so well together. :) I wasn't quite sure if I would enjoy this book. I'm not sure why to be honest. The summary definitely sounded interesting but I just wasn't sure if I would be able to get into it. 
So I read it and I absolutely enjoyed reading it! It is not too different from other fantasies but it is still intriguing and hard to put down. 
I enjoyed reading about the characters, though some of them absolutely annoyed me. Wil was a strong character and she had gone through much in her past. I loved how she took care of those that mattered to her. She wasn't just black and white all of the time. She felt conflicted with what she had to do and what was actually right to do. It was great to be able to see her grow throughout the book. 
Black Knife was also pretty awesome and I looked forward to when him and Wil would meet up. Their banter was great and I enjoyed reading about them helping others together. I won't say too much else though. :) 
The history of the magic and the kingdoms was interesting as well. I look forward to learning more about the wraith and to see what becomes of it. 
The Orphan Queen  was intriguing, suspenseful, action packed, and romantic. It was everything that I was in the mood to read and I definitely cannot wait for the next book! I loved the characters and I want to learn more about them and their abilities. There were some twists near the end that I did see coming but enjoyed nonetheless. I feel like the ending is kind of a cliff hanger and will definitely leave readers wanting more. 
I rated this book 4 out of 5 hearts! A great beginning to what is sure to be a fantastic series. :)

Review - Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley

By Maria Dahvana Headley
Published April 28th, 2015 by Harper Collins
320 pages

Summary from 

Neil Gaiman’s Stardust meets John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars in this fantasy about a girl caught between two worlds... two races…and two destinies.

Aza Ray is drowning in thin air. 

Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak—to live. 

So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn't think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.

Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who’s always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world—and found, by another. Magonia. 

Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power—and as she navigates her new life, she discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. And in Aza’s hands lies the fate of the whole of humanity—including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie? 
Wow. It's going to be kind of difficult to explain this book because it is definitely something that I haven't read before. Magonia was so unique and such an intriguing read that I wasn't able to put down! 
Aza Ray is not normal and she hasn't ever been. She can't breathe easily in the air that everyone else can breathe in. Aza is basically dying on Earth and she doesn't have much longer to live based on what the doctors says. Then something happens and Aza is taken above the clouds to a place called Magonia. A place where she lives on a ship in the sky and can breathe easily. But even though Aza is not weak in Magonia, it isn't her home and those people aren't her family. Will she stay with her shipmates or will she try to find a way back to her family and best friend?
On Magonia Aza is surrounded by people that aren't actually humans or "drowners." I won't say too much about what they are because I think it will be better to not know too much going into the book. So I'll talk about Aza instead. :) 
Aza is a pretty strong girl. She is weak and dying on Earth and she has known this for forever, yet she is still able to go about her life. Then she finds herself on some ship with strange creatures in the sky and she doesn't totally freak out. She figures things out and she is pretty brave. Aside from how strong she is, Aza is definitely unique. She doesn't act like everyone else and she absolutely loves to read and learn new information through her reading. Her best friend, Jason, is her only friend and compliments her personality. Both are smart, though Jason is definitely intelligent. They aren't like everyone else and I loved their relationship. Jason is definitely determined and loyal to those he cares about. 
Magonia is written in a way that isn't always understandable. The sentences are really interesting to read as well as the descriptions, but they don't always make sense. I found myself having to go back and think about what I read to make sense of what was happening or being described. It also felt like not too much happened because the book is pretty small for a standalone of that genre. I felt like there was something else that was supposed to happen but other than that, the book was pretty great. It was unique, fresh, and intriguing. I definitely recommend to those that are looking for something different! 
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars!

Review - From A Distant Star by Karen McQuestion

From a Distant Star
From A Distant Star
By Karen McQuestion 
Published May 19th, 2015 by Skyscape
272 pages

3.5 stars - Interesting Read! 

*Thank you to Netgalley for a free copy in exchange for honest review!*

Summary from

Seventeen-year-old Emma was the only one who hadn’t given up on her boyfriend, Lucas. Everyone else—his family, his friends, his doctors—believed that any moment could be his last. So when Lucas miraculously returns from the brink of death, Emma thinks her prayers have been answered.

As the surprised town rejoices, Emma begins to question whether Lucas is the same boy she’s always known. When she finds an unidentifiable object on his family’s farm—and government agents come to claim it—she begins to suspect that nothing is what it seems. Emma’s out-of-this-world discovery may be the key to setting things right, but only if she and Lucas can evade the agents who are after what they have. With all her hopes and dreams on the line, Emma sets out to save the boy she loves. And with a little help from a distant star, she might just have a chance at making those dreams come true.


Before I say anything about the content of the book, I have to say that the cover is definitely awesome. I love the mix of purples and blues! 

So I was really interested in From A Distant Star because the summary sounded really interesting. I haven't read that many alien stories before but I am always interested in them when I do find some. For some reason I thought that it was going to be a little different from what I read, but it was enjoyable read nonetheless. 

The novel starts off in the point of view of the family dog and that was definitely an interesting start to the book. After that there are a few good things and not so good things.

I enjoyed reading about Scout's (the alien) planet and his past. His point of view was interesting because he looked at things completely differently that the humans. He was almost childlike in a sense and you can tell from the way his lines are written. Scout's abilities as an alien were also intriguing.

Then there was Emma. Emma was a pretty good character and she had her relate-able moments. She has been watching her boyfriend die and dealing with his family. Then her boyfriend gets better and before she knows it her life is more action packed that she expected. Emma was pretty strong in the fact that she had to outsmart some government agents and do so with an alien at her side. But Emma was also a little too much at times. She was constantly thinking about Lucas and found it hard to understand or relate to Scout. Near the end she got better and was able to care more for Scout and his feelings. 

I also thought that the romance part was kind of unbelievable. There were probably only a few romantic scenes but those were memories of Emma's or Lucas'. I didn't mind this and enjoyed that Emma and Scout didn't have to have a romantic relationship. But when Emma would talk about her love for Lucas, it just didn't make sense. She thought that they were really in love and they hadn't even been together for too long. 

Despite the romance part, this book was pretty enjoyable. I found myself not able to really put it down. I kept reading because I wanted to know what would happen to the characters. The ending is enjoyable as well and I felt that it really tied things up nicely. A different take on sci-fi that was pretty interesting!

Review - The Heir (The Selection #4) by Kiera Cass

The Heir (The Selection, #4)
The Heir (The Selection #4)
By Kiera Cass
Published May 5th, 2015 by HarperTeen
342 pages

*Spoilers for the previous Selection books!!! Do not read if you haven't read the previous three books!!!*

Summary from 

Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she'd put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess's life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can't escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn't expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn's heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn't as impossible as she's always thought.


I have a few things to say before I get into my review. The Heir is actually the fourth book in The Selection series but is told by a different character. The first three books were about America Singer and Prince Maxon. This book has to do with the eldest child of the beautiful couple. I really enjoyed reading about America and Maxon and I enjoyed reading about their daughter, Eadlyn, as well. 

Eadlyn is 18 years old and the heir to the throne. She is a twin and she wishes that her brother would be the heir instead. It is a tough job to run the country and Eadlyn will be the first ever woman to do so. She basically has a lot on her shoulders and because of this she isn't the most pleasant girl to be around. At first, Eadlyn is stubborn, smart, calculating and, at times, kind of cold. She doesn't have time for fairy tale love and sure doesn't want to find it in her own selection. But she's going to have to for her parents and her country. 

For most people Eadlyn is not going to seem to likable but I think she is pretty relatable. I know how upset I can get when I'm forced into something I don't want. The great thing is that Eadlyn grows and learns from her mistakes. She is still trying to figure herself out and what and who she believes in. I can't wait to see how far Eadlyn comes in the next book. 

There are many interesting characters as well. America and Maxon are parents which is pretty exciting to read about. Eadlyn's brothers are amazing as well and I really love the relationship that she has with them. The selected guys are a mix of annoying, rude, and sweet. I personally love Henri, Erik, Hale, and Kile. :)

Besides the characters, it is interesting to see the other side of the selection. We see what Maxon had to go through in the first few books. The Heir is a pretty good read and I hope the next is even better. I would definitely recommend if you are curious about the future of Illea as well as Maxon and America's children!  

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars!!

Rise of the Iron Eagle (Book One) by Roy A. Teel

From the opening of Chapter 8:

John walked into Starbucks at the corner of Topanga and Lassen just before six thirty a.m. He got a coffee and a copy of the Daily News, and the headline said it all, “‘Billy the Kid,’ Crips Gang Member and Serial Rapist, Body Found in Legion Park: Iron Eagle Said to Be Killer.” He shook his head, “I should really start looking for the people who leak this stuff.” He walked to a flower shop a few doors down to purchase a dozen long-stemmed red roses. His truck was parked in front of Country Deli, a local landmark for nearly fifty years. He knew the area very, very well, but he knew it for all the wrong reasons. He pulled out of the lot and headed west through the neighborhoods of oak and eucalyptus trees, following Lassen as it turned from a busy thoroughfare into a quiet neighborhood of post-World War II homes and horse properties, until he reached the entrance to Oakwood Cemetery.

He parked his truck outside the large black wrought iron gates and the ivy covered brick walls of the cemetery and walked through the entrance and up the steep incline of the main road. He walked past a blue and white striped tent; a small backhoe sat quietly where fresh earth had been moved, and a concrete burial vault sat on the ground next to the newly-opened grave. He walked out into the cemetery grass and stopped in front of a grave marker set beneath a huge California Live Oak. He looked at the gray and white granite and its inscription, ‘Amber Lynn Swenson.’ He knelt and brushed away the fresh cut grass, so the whole inscription was revealed. ‘Loving Wife and Beautiful Soul. April 8, 1978 – March 20, 2003.’ Placing the flowers on the stone, he sat down, leaning his back against the tree. “I miss you, honey. I miss my best friend.  I’m sorry I’ve been away for so long.” He heaved a sigh as a tear rolled down his face, and he whispered, “I’m still looking for him, Amber Lynn. For the man who took your life and our life together away.” He wiped the tears from his eyes, his lower lip quivering. “I know I’ve told you, and I don’t know if you are somewhere where you can hear me or not, but I’m sorry. If I had just been on time that night, he wouldn’t have gotten you.” He wiped the stone with a handkerchief from his pocket and laughed. “You always made fun of me for being old fashioned … but you were glad I had it the night I asked you to marry me. How could I know that this same piece of linen that dried your tears of joy at our engagement would later dry my tears of sorrow at your funeral.” John paused for a moment, his anger rising up. “He’s still out there, Amber, hurting women and children. I can’t let that continue. I will find him…and I will avenge you and all the others he’s tortured and killed. He’s a sly one; so far below the radar not even law enforcement sees his pattern or knows that he even exists. The randomness of his killings and the large area that he covers is his protection. I thought I had him with Roskowski. He was evil but wasn’t the man who did this to you.”

He stood up and walked toward the unmarked piece of land next to Amber’s headstone. “This is my spot, baby, right next to you. I’m not afraid of death…I’m afraid of dying before I catch him and bring him to justice.” He leaned down on his hands and knees and gently touched his lips to her name. “Rest, my angel. The next time I come back, it’ll be to tell you that I got him.”

His doctors gave him two years to live, and he left the hospital in a wheelchair. After battling Multiple Sclerosis for nearly 16 years, Roy began devoting his energies and passions to the full-time art of storytelling. His disability has brought with it an unforeseen blessing.
