I am thrilled to be teaming up with the awesome Emily from Emily Reads Everything today and discussing dream destinations. She had asked me what my top five places to travel would be and to make it extra fun, pick places from some books that I have read. Time to put my thinking cap on.. 1. Australia ~ This destination comes from a book series that I have read and consider to be one of my favorites,The Wishes Series by G.J. Walker-Smith. This country is described so beautifully in these books and they sound breathtaking and full natural wonders. 2. Paris, France  ~ This destination comes from a book series called The Revenant Series by Amy Plum. I have always wanted see the city of Paris, but after reading these books my desire to go is even more than before. It’s sounds so magical, romantic and historical to me. 3.

SBPT Sunday: The Book Bandit Blog

SBPT Sunday: The Book Bandit Blog

  Welcome to Nicole from The Book Bandit! Hi! My name is Nicole. I’m a librarian by day, and a book blogger by night. I’m (obviously) an avid reader who is also an aspiring writer. I am a complete and utter music junkie, a sucker for any book to movie adaption, and I buy way too much makeup for one girl. My favorite author and book changes daily. And terrible at the ‘about’ me section of anything. For more info about me and my blog check out http://thebookbandit.wordpress.com ItÂ’s no secret Â… I read a lot of books. Some of those books I like, some I do not, some I absolutely adore. And sometimes I feel those books that I absolutely adore do not get the attention that I feel they deserve. Today, IÂ’ll be talking about a book that I hold very near and dear to my reading heart. ItÂ’s a book that captured and captivated me within the very first chapter. ItÂ’s a book that I feel doesnÂ’t get the recognition or the attention I feel it deserves! And that book is Dreamland Social Club written by author Tara Altebrando. So before I tell you exactly why I think this book needs more love, let me tell you what itÂ’s about… When Jane and her family move to Coney Island, and the last thing she expects to […]

SBPT Sunday: The Book Bratz

SBPT Sunday: The Book Bratz

As you all know, I’m participating in the 2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour. Its running from July 5th – August 12th. Today I’d like to introduce you to the creative team behind SBPT themselves, The Book Bratz. Jessica, is an avid (and already published) writer and reader, and Amber is a Speed Reader Extraordinaire. they’ve been blogging for over a year now. They are both fond of movies, books, cute boys, and chocolate. For their intro post, I asked them to choose their favorite blog post so I could feature it here. They introduced me to a kerfuffle that shock the blogger world last year. An author, Amy Spaulding, made a Bingo Card that hurt a lot of feelings. You can see it here if you have no idea what I’m talking about. I didn’t when I saw this post. The wonderful thing about Jessica and Amber is that instead of being hurt, they focused on why authors and readers love and appreciate each other and worked to bring the community back together. Thanks to them for their empathy! Let’s Talk: Blogger & Author Appreciation Originally posted here. Blogger & Author Appreciation   Recently, some tension has developed among the blogging and writing communities. (If you know of the whole “Bingo Card” extravaganza, you know what we’re talking about.) Us ladies here at The Book Bratz have decided to reach out […]

SBPT Sunday: Afterlife Special with Offbeat YA

SBPT Sunday: Afterlife Special with Offbeat YA

    Roberta R. is a senior blogger with a penchant for YA books. Her love of music has landed her a job as a host for a local radio station. Her fancy for TV series,  from police procedural to sci-fi to urban fantasy, causes her to experiment wild adventures with too many fictional characters in her night dreams. Her urge to spread the love for overlooked YA novels drove her to start her blog, Offbeat YA, in 2012. It started with a book. It always does. In 1997, I stumbled upon the blurb of a 8 year old Christopher Pike novel, Remember Me, in the YA section of a book catalogue. Please take special note of the following: I wasn’t familiar with his stuff, or with the whole YA phenomenon for that matter (what with being in Italy); I was already past the age of reading YA novels…or so I thought. I was only going through the whole catalogue because I’d read pretty much anything, telephone address books included. But the image of a deceased girl who sets on investigating her own murder began to haunt me to the point that I impulsively went out and bought the book. Little did I know at the time that such a simple action would have started my love affair with afterlife novels…and Pike himself (I mean his writer persona of course…). The fact is, I simply love everything about afterlife novels. […]

Blog Tour Review and Giveaway: Marry Me, Charlotte B!

Blog Tour Review and Giveaway: Marry Me, Charlotte B!

Welcome to the Fandomly Bookish blog tour! This is the first one I’ve been invited to do. I love free books as much as the next girl, so I hope that I’m invited back! If you like free books too, then read to the end for the giveaway! Synopsis Nellie Canlas loves her job. She loves being assistant to reality TV star and wedding planner goddess, the fabulous Charlotte Bertram, and she loves working with couples to make their wedding dreams come true. What she doesn’t love is having cameras following her all the time, especially when sheÂ’s crushing hard on the lawyer from another floor.  Robert Bertram doesn’t like planning weddings. He doesn’t like being on TV either. But when he finds himself in possession of NellieÂ’s diary, he thinks he can turn her into anyoneÂ’s dream girl. If he doesn’t fall for her first. Published: 4/30/15 by Midnight Books Genre: New Adult Goodreads – Amazon – Smashwords Things I liked I loved the premise of this book. There are so many reality shows on TV but this is the first book I’ve read that tries to capture that feeling. The story is really cute and I thought that the premise was very original. Its unusual to find a way to approach a romance that hasn’t been attempted before and I think Carla De Guzman succeeded there! Nellie is a […]
