An Affair of Poisons by Addie Thorley

Book Summary:
No one looks kindly on the killer of a king.
After unwittingly helping her mother poison King Louis XIV, seventeen-year-old alchemist Mirabelle Monvoisin is forced to see her mother’s Shadow Society in a horrifying new light: they’re not heroes of the people, as they’ve always claimed to be, but murderers. Herself included. Mira tries to ease her guilt by brewing helpful curatives, but her hunger tonics and headache remedies cannot right past wrongs or save the dissenters her mother vows to purge.
Royal bastard Josse de Bourbon is more kitchen boy than fils de France. But when the Shadow Society assassinates the Sun King and half of the royal court, he must become the prince he was never meant to be in order to save his injured sisters and the petulant dauphin. Forced to hide in the sewers beneath the city, Josse’s hope of reclaiming Paris seems impossible―until his path collides with Mirabelle’s.
She’s a deadly poisoner. He’s a bastard prince. They are sworn enemies, yet they form a tenuous pact to unite the commoners and former nobility against the Shadow Society. But can a rebellion built on mistrust ever hope to succeed?

My Review:

An Affair of Poisons is a prefect stand alone read. I do enjoy the fantasy world of it and the characters in it.

Mirabelle is skill making poisons and playing with the art of alchemy. She unknowingly kill the king, thanks to her mother. Now not liking what her mother stands for, she runs away. While she runs off, she bumps into unlikely allie. Will she be able to fix all the pain she done?

Josse is the bastard son of the king. He would do anything to keep his family safe. Now that the royal kid in hiding, it’s up him to run back and forth in town for food and stuff. Bumping into Merabelle may be his ticket to save the kingdom. Can he really trust her?

This book was fast pace and full of action. It has magical elements, and little romance. Looking for a new fantasy book without worrying on cliffhangers, then check out this standalone read.

Happy Reading!!!

Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan

Book Summary:
Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way:
* She’s landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog.
* Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou’s never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after.
* Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who’s always been up for anything, suddenly isn’t when it comes to Lou’s quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou’s scheme to get close to Nick.
* And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland–ever–unless she can find a way to stop it from closing.

My Review:

This book is the prefect summer read. I really enjoyed Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan so much.

The setting takes place at the fair, with cute guys, and hanging with best friends all summer long. What could go wrong for Elouise? Well the fair closing next year and the boy she likes is dating someone else. With a little plotting and scheming, can Elouise have the perfect summer or will it all fall a part?

This book was quick read with some laughs and fun. So get ready to enjoy the summer feeling book, with little romance and lots of pool side fun.

Happy Reading!!!

My Review:

Kingsbane was such a epic adventure. have fallen in love again with this world. If you have yet read Furyborn, then you don’t have to read review.

Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner

Book Summary:
Every Friday night, best friends Delia and Josie become Rayne Ravenscroft and Delilah Darkwood, hosts of the campy creature feature show Midnite Matinee on the local cable station TV Six.
But with the end of senior year quickly approaching, the girls face tough decisions about their futures. Josie has been dreading graduation, as she tries to decide whether to leave for a big university and chase her dream career in mainstream TV. And Lawson, one of the show’s guest performers, a talented MMA fighter with weaknesses for pancakes, fantasy novels, and Josie, is making her tough decision even harder.
Scary movies are the last connection Delia has to her dad, who abandoned the family years ago. If Midnite Matinee becomes a hit, maybe he’ll see it and want to be a part of her life again. And maybe Josie will stay with the show instead of leaving her behind, too.
As the tug-of-war between growing up and growing apart tests the bonds of their friendship, Josie and Delia start to realize that an uncertain future can be both monstrous…and momentous.

My Review:

Rayne & Delia Midnite Matinee is such a good read. A book about testing the bonds of a friendship. It was fun to read at times.

Delia is a huge horror fan and started her online show with best friend Rayne. Delia try to uses the show to connect with her father, who walked out on her. Rayne is there to support her along the way. Until after high school, Rayne has other plans that don’t involve being on show forever. Things may be changing for their friendship, but in the end will they still stay friends?

I thought the book started out pretty good. I enjoy how they girls put together their horror show. It was fun reading how close the girls are and people thinking they sisters. Toward the end I thought the story dragged out a bit then it needed it to be. If your in mood for some friendship reads, then you might enjoy this book.

Happy Birthday!!!!

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L Armentrout

Book Summary:
One kiss could be the last.
Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.
Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.
Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.
But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne… it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

My Review:

White Hot Kiss was such a great read. I’m slowly reading most of Jennifer L Armentrout’s books. This has so many cool creatures to be scare of or to love. You can fall in love with most of the characters in the book and the story it told.

Layla is pretty cool in the book. She is half warden and half demon. She struggles fighting her demon side on regular basics. Also she helps the wardens out to tag demons. Not sure where she belongs at times, she bumps into a high power demon. Roth might hold the key to her pass.

Roth is this hot looking demon. He saves Layla life a few times. Even let Layla understand who she really is. Roth makes Layla conflicted with the wardens and her true purpose in life. What secrets does Roth hold for Layla?

This book is a quick read for me. I enjoyed the world building where monsters roam free and try to fit in. Where some might want to end the world. The wardens try to keep the peace between humans and demons. So many characters to enjoy. If you in mood for some action pack fun, then you should give this book a chance.

Happy Reading!!!

In Another Life by C.C Hunter

Now, fourteen years later, her loving parents’ marriage has fallen apart and her mom has moved them to Joyful, Texas.

My Review:

In Another Life was such a good book. I like the storyline about adoption and affects it has on the two main characters in the book.

I like Chole in the book, she had everything she ever wanted. A loving family until it starts to fall a part. Starting a new school year and finding out where she belongs in the world. When accidentally bumping in Cash, her life changes forever.

I also did like Cash in the book. He comes off very mysterious person. He has a loving family but he does not feel like he belongs there. When he frist see Chole, she looks like his family missing daughter. What secrets are kept from these two all these years?

This book was a very addictive read. I finish it in about one night. You enjoy the twists and turns throughout the book. If looking for something new, then your in luck.

Happy Reading!!!
