Eden’s Escape…by M. Tara Crowl-Release Launch

Eden’s Escape…by M. Tara Crowl-Release Launch

EXCERPT  This time Eden landed on her feet. When she opened her eyes, she saw that they were planted on black pavement. Black pavement meant a street. She was standing on a street. Okay, she thought. But where? She lifted her eyes. Directly before her were four yellow taxis, side by side, like the front line of a battalion. To her left and right were buildings so tall, she was as small as a bug in comparison. And in the distance, a narrow slip of bright blue sky framed by more sky-high buildings, as far as she could see. She’d never been here before; of that, she was certain. And yet, she’d received a genie’s education. She’d seen enough photos to know without a doubt where she was. “New York City,” she said softly. RERRR!!! Car horns rang in her ears. “Get outta the road!” yelled a man leaning out of a taxi’s window. “You tryna get killed?” The light […]

Here Comes the Witch…by Ani Gonzalez-Blog Tour

Here Comes the Witch…by Ani Gonzalez-Blog Tour

  ‘Here Comes the Witch’ is a cozy/mystery/romance with a twist. Kat Ramos comes back to her ancestral town of Banshee Creek.Her mission is to help lift a curse that was placed on a home by one of her ancestors. This turns out to be more complicated than she thought. When I first read the synopsis of this book,I was a little scared. I thought that the town of ‘Banshee Creek’ sounded a lot like the town of Cassadaga, Florida (which scares the daylights out of me). I was relieved to find out the town in the story was  quirky and full of fun characters. The town even comes with its own spooky stores such as a bakery that makes bat cookies. Usually, I am not a big paranormal reader but this book seemed different. It’s storyline is very fresh. I feel as if many books now a days just rehash similar plots over and over but ‘Here Comes the […]

Emma G. Loves Boyz…by Taro Meyer-Book Blast

Excerpt: OMG!!! My heart was racing like it was going crazy. Lights began flashing from everyone’s phones and people were Instagramming pictures of the band to their friends and posting them. I tried to take pictures but my hands were shaking so much from excitement that the pictures were blurry. Jenny wasn’t taking any either because she was shaking too. Everyone was screaming and yelling and crying. Two girls fainted and were carried out to get some water. I was screaming too. I took a selfie of me screaming and then one of Jenny screaming. Her mouth was open so wide I think I was taking a picture of her tonsils!!! I could see all the Boyz3000 faces very clearly because we were so close up, but especially Aaron’s. I was watching him and trying to take his picture while I was screaming, but my hands were still shaking too much to get good shots, so I stopped trying and […]

Ready Player One…by Ernest Cline

Ready Player One…by Ernest Cline

“In this days, if you wanted to escape to another world, you had to create it yourself, using your brain, some paper, pencils, dice, and a few rule books.” …”‘Union of the Snake,’” I recited, mostly out of habit. “Duran Duran. Nineteen eighty-three.”   ‘Ready Player One’ is a dystopian novel. In 2044, most people on earth spend a majority of their time inside the Oasis virtual world. James Halliday, the developer of Oasis, dies and leaves his vast fortune to whomever figures out his labyrinth of Oasis riddles and quests. Since Halliday was a teenager in the ’80’s ,much of the clues revolve around knowledge of this time period. From there ‘Willie Wonka’ type madness ensues. I have heard a lot about ‘Ready Player One’ and how much everyone loved it. Since I am not a dystopian lover,I didn’t have any plans to read it, when I first heard about it. Then I found out that it was filled […]
