Release Day Blitz: Bridges Burned by Chris Cannon

Bridges Burned
By Chris Cannon
January 27, 2015


Don’t just fight the system…burn it.

Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking…
But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn’t a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.


Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.

DARE TO DREAM
by Carys Jones

Young Adult - Paranormal
Publication: by REUTS Publication, LLC.
PURCHASE: Amazon • Barnes and Noble
Fourteen-year-old Maggie Trafford leads a normal life. Well, as normal as being crammed in a three-bedroom house with four siblings and a single parent can be, anyway. But despite being somewhat ignored at home, Maggie excels, earning top grades, a best friend who would do anything for her, and stolen looks from a boy in Maths.

It’s not until the dreams start that Maggie realizes “normal” is the least of her problems. Every night, she lives the same nightmare—red lightning, shattered glass, destruction. But nightmares are just that, right? No one believes her when she says it’s an omen. At least, not until the already mysterious pillars of Stonehenge start falling.

No longer alone in her fear, Maggie and the world watch with bated breath as one after another, the historic stones tumble, like a clock counting down. But only Maggie knows what it means: when the last stone falls, destruction will reign. And when the world ends, there’s only one option left—survive.

Horrifying and raw, Dare to Dream is equal parts tragedy and hope, detailing the aftermath of apocalyptic catastrophe, the quest for survival, and the importance of belief.


MY THOUGHTS:

Oh, my God. That cover looks definitely amazing -- dark and lovely, just like what I love. Plus the synopsis sounds promising. I've read a novel by Carys Jones before and I ended up loving it so no doubt that I'll love this as well.

[See my review of Sunkissed of Carys Jones.] 
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Carys Jones loves nothing more than to write and create stories which ignite the reader’s imagination. Based in Shropshire, England, Carys lives with her husband, two guinea pigs and her adored canine companion Rollo.

When she’s not writing, Carys likes to indulge her inner geek by watching science- fiction films or playing video games.

She lists John Green, Jodi Picoult and Virginia Andrews as her favorite authors and draws inspiration for her own work from anything and everything.

To Carys, there is no greater feeling then when you lose yourself in a great story and it is that feeling of ultimate escapism which she tries to bring to her books.

Promo Blitz: Deviation by Heather Hildenbrand

Thursday, January 15, 2015
Promo Blitz made possible by Mark My Words Book Publicity.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

DEVIATION
 (Clone Chronicles, #2)
by Heather Hildenbrand

Young Adult - Science Fiction, Romance
Purchase via AMAZON
GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:
Protect. Obey. Sacrifice.

These words are the mantra of my existence. I’m not sure if it’s TitusRogen inspiring my desire to go against what I am or my own DNA deviating. All I can think is how Titus will look when he meets his end. It trumps even my wish for freedom. In this moment, I want nothing more than to watch the life bleed from Titus’s body. And I want it at my own hands.

Titus. The Creator.

I stare at my palms. Strength aside, I wonder if I’m capable of taking a life. A human life; one with a soul. And I wonder if that isn’t easier than taking the life of an Imitation. At least humans have souls that live on. What do I have after this? Where will I go? Back into a syringe? Will Titus recycle me? Or will I be lost forever down a lab drain?

We don’t deserve that.

We don’t deserve him.

Deserving and receiving are so very different here. And I am beginning to understand, to beat someone in this world, I‘ll have to play in it.



 IMITATION is the first book in The Clone Chronicles.

IMITATION
 (Clone Chronicles, #1)
by Heather Hildenbrand

Young Adult - Science Fiction, Romance
Purchase via AMAZON
GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:
Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me.

Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face.

Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has never needed Ven . . . until now.

When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?

Review: You Are Graduating Soon: What's After High School?

Wednesday, January 14, 2015


YOU ARE GRADUATING SOON: WHAT'S AFTER HIGH SCHOOL?
by Kevin Douglas Wright

Guide
Format Acquired: Paperback, 42 pages

Purchase - AmazonBarnes and Noble
Source: Review copy sent by the author. (Thanks!)

GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:

Do you want to make more money? Improve your life? Meet new people? Find a boyfriend or girlfriend? Get a better job? Go to college? Yes? Then this booklet is one of the best places to start.



I don't usually read guides but when I do, I try to make sure that it will help or (truly) guide me in someway. This guide is not just aimed towards people in high school, it's basically for everyone who wants to learn more.

I like the way Mr. Wright has wrote this booklet, everything is perfectly understandable.  However, this is not just a guide -- I think it's essentially a promotional booklet for Mr. Wright's online website, Educate Zap. Educate Zap is an free online school. It helps people who wants to learn more without paying a lot of money.

This a great guide, I enjoyed reading it. It's perfect for everyone who needs more guidance in school.

★★★★

BUY THE BOOK:
Amazon
GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:
A moment ago, I was happily napping on the windowsill in the sunshine, dreaming I was flying through the air, catching sparrows in my claws.


Now I’m awake. Georgie woke me. I wouldn’t do that to her.


A popular middle-grade writer moves to chapter books (ages 7-9) with this humorous tale about a cat that makes Grumpy Cat seem cheerful. Perfect for fans of Geronimo Stilton and Dog Diaries.


Hissy Fitz lives with some two-legged creatures who are destined to serve him in every possible way and understand his every whim. Sadly, these creatures are sorely lacking in their skills. For one thing–they touch him when they want to touch him. Don’t they know that the two-legged are there for him to touch when he wants to–meaning when he wants food? Petting wakes him up! They speak to him–don’t they know the two-legged should be seen–so Hissy knows where to order food–and not heard! It’s becoming intolerable. What is this irascible cat to do?

Hissy Fitz is now tweeting as @thehissyfitz – please follow him!

Release Day: CONTRADICTIONS by Tiffany King

SQUEEE~ It's the release day of CONTRADICTIONS by USA Today Bestselling author Tiffany King!

Release Date: January 6th 2015 by Berkley Trade
PURCHASE: Amazon || Barnes and Noble || iBooks || Kobo
 
 GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:
When everything starts spinning out of control . . .

Three years into college, Tressa Oliver’s life is a nonstop party. She’s skating by in her classes, and there’s no shortage of drinking, dancing, and general hell-raising. The only aspect that hasn’t been much fun: She can’t shake the toxic jerks that always seem to gravitate toward her.

It will take someone totally wrong . . .

Trent Lawson is the classic anti-bad boy: smart, boring, and way too serious. To a wild girl like Tressa, there’s no way in hell they’re compatible—especially since Trent seems to see straight through her defenses.

To set her right.

When a college prank goes terribly wrong, Tressa starts to suspect that her partying ways are leading nowhere fast. Now she has to turn to the last person she ever thought she’d ask for help—and quickly discovers that there’s more to Trent than meets the eye . . .
