Letters to The Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

Book Summary:
Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother’s death, she leaves letters at her grave. It’s the only way Juliet can cope.
Declan Murphy isn’t the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he’s trying to escape the demons of his past.
When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can’t resist writing back. Soon, he’s opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they’re not actually strangers. When life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, sparks will fly as Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart.

My Review:

Letters to The Lost was such a eye opening read about grief. I did love this book a lot and the story it told. I did connected well with the characters on what they going through.

{Arc Review} Bloodleaf by Crystal Smith

Book Summary:
Perfect for fans of RED QUEEN and UPROOTED, Crystal Smith’s debut novel, BLOODLEAF, is an imaginative retelling of the Grimm Fairy tale “The Goose Girl” that takes a ghostly mystery and sets it inside an epic fantasy world.
Princess Aurelia is a prisoner to her crown and the heir that nobody wants. Surrounded by spirits and banned from using her blood-magic, Aurelia flees her country after a devastating assassination attempt. To escape her fate, Aurelia disguises herself as a commoner in a new land and discovers a happiness her crown has never allowed. As she forges new bonds and perfects her magic, she begins to fall for a man who is forbidden to rule beside her. But the ghosts that haunt Aurelia refuse to abandon her, and she finds herself succumbing to their call as they expose a nefarious plot that only she can defeat. Will she be forced to choose between the weight of the crown and the freedom of her new life?

My Review:

Since I’m such am huge fantasy reader, I got to say Bloodleaf was such an great read. The storyline was epic and can relate to the characters in the book. Hope more people get a chance to discover this read.

Aurelia is a different kind of princess. She must hide her powers from her people and protect herself, until she can become queen. She watches helplessly as others around her are dying because they have magic. With an attempt on her life, she must now go on the run.

Zan is the kinda guy you might fall for. He is very mysterious person at first. But he shows some kindness when he first finds Aurelia. Little does he know who this girl is. I enjoyed how these two interact with other and also butting heads at first. Will they be able to work together and save the kingdom?

This book was action packed, and filled with a lot of magic. It was such a fast pace read and very hard to put down. Bloodleaf is prefect for fantasy lovers a like. Comes out March 12th.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Stolen Time by Danielle Rollins

Book Summary:
Seattle, 1913 // Dorothy is trapped. Forced into an engagement to a wealthy man just so she and her mother can live comfortably for the rest of their days, she’ll do anything to escape. Including sneaking away from her wedding and bolting into the woods to disappear.

Then she wakes up in a future that’s been ripped apart by earthquakes and floods; where vicious gangs rule the submerged city streets and a small group of intrepid travelers from across time are fighting against the odds to return things to normal. What Dorothy doesn’t know is that she could hold the key to unraveling the past—and her arrival may spell Ash’s ultimate destruction.

My Review:

Stolen Time was such a fantastic read. I love how original the storyline was. Also felt very connected with the characters. I’m so looking forward to reading more book by Danielle Rollins.

Dorothy who was running away from a wedding, saw her chance when she bumps into Ash. Hijacking on his little plane, should be simple escape. If the plane happens to travel into the future. Will Dorothy enjoy her life or risk everything to getting back home?

The books has a little bit doctor who feeling in it. Even if your favorite episode was The Runaway Bride. I did love every minute of it. Also looking forward to book two. Stolen Time is out now, so grab yourself a copy.

My Review:

A Danger to Herself and Others was such an insightful read. I enjoyed the story and the characters in it. I was so engrossed in the story, that I was shock with some of the twists in the book. This is my third book I read from the author. I loved her other reads, R.I.P Eliza Heart and Faceless. She is known to have some good twists in her books.

Hannah in the book, we first see her lock up in a mental hospital. She is accuse of being involved of her roommate accident. Laying low in a mental hospital, can question a person’s insanity. What’s the truth with Hannah’s roommate mystery fall?

This book leaves you guessing what’s real or not, as you guys dig deep inside Hannah mind. Is she really crazy or it just an misunderstanding? I already want to pick up this book and reread it all over again. It is a real page turner. Looking for another good new read. Then you in for a treat. The book came out yesterday.

{Arc Review} A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

Book Summary:
In a lush, contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Brigid Kemmerer gives readers another compulsively readable romance perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer.
Fall in love, break the curse.
It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

My Review:

A Dark So Lonely Curse was such a perfect Beauty and the Beast retelling. I love how how the story is set in modern times. Also the cover blew me away. Enjoy how the the two main characters interact with each other.

I thought Harper was kick ass in her own way in the book. She did not let her disabilities, stop her from helping a girl in trouble. Which would she end yup stuck into an crazy magical world. Can she use her wits and charm to get back home?

Prince Rhen in the book was such an jerk. He was so desperate breaking the curse, he end up kidnapping girls from other words. When Harper accidentally comes along, he is in over his head. Will Harper be the one to tame the beast?

This book was such an quick read. I would read this over and over. Also what I love in this book, the prince is not really a beast form all the time. He just a jerk prince that is cursed. What kind curse he has, well you must read for self. The book comes out January 31st.

Happy Reading!!!!!

Faceless by Alyssa Sheinmel

Book Summary:
When Maisie Winters wakes up, she’s in the hospital.
The last thing she remembers is running through the hills of her neighborhood one misty morning. Slowly, she puts the pieces together. Before she could make it home, a storm gathered. Lightning hit a power line and sparks rained down, the hot-burning electrical fire consuming her. Destroying her face. Where her nose, cheeks, and chin used to be, now there is…nothing.
Maisie’s lucky enough to qualify for a rare medical treatment: a face transplant. At least, everyone says she’s lucky. But with someone else’s features staring back at her in the mirror, Maisie looks—and feels—like a stranger. The doctors promised that the transplant was her chance to live a normal life again, but nothing feels normal anymore. Before, she knew who she was—a regular girl who ran track and got good grades, who loved her boyfriend and her best friend. Now, she can’t even recognize herself.

My Review:

What Happens when your in a horrible accident and half your face is gone?

In the book Faceless, Maisie deals with an tragic accident, while out running one day. Her face was so burn up, you could barely recognized her. Lucky to have been still alive, she gets a chance to start over with a face transplant. With having a new face will it change the who she before the accident? How your her friends and people around her will react?

This book was very good read. I thought it was well written and very detailed story. I like seeing how Maisie has grow throughout the book and dealing with what happen to her. Faceless is such an amazing read and hope more people discover this book.

Looking for a new book with self discovering and accepting who you are. Then I suggest you pick up Faceless. If you unsure on this book then pick up at local library.

Happy Reading!!!!
