Sorry for the Absense

Hello dear readers,

I have been absent for a very long time. I had a lot of issues going on during the school semester, and some of my issues carried over into the summer. I didn't have much time to even think about blogging, and the time that I did have, I was busy with my family. On top of these personal issues, I also started a summer job which I had to wake up for at like 5 in the morning and I didn't get off until late in the afternoon.

So to make a long story short, because I could definitely go on longer about this, I will hopefully be getting back to blogging on a somewhat consistent routine by January. I may blog a few posts here and there, but don't expect anything until after this semester has ended and the holidays are over. As a thank you to those who have checked even when I wasn't posting, I am going to host up to $5 ebook giveaway for the ebook of your choice!!!! YAY!!!! I will probably have that giveaway starting on the 1st of December and ending Christmas Eve, so it will be like a Christmas gift from me. I would love to give more, but right now, I just can't. I still want to say thanks!

Review: Bittersweet by Kimberly Loth

25037585Bittersweet by Kimberly Loth

Every Sunday Savannah Ray gets an email from her dead dad. She doesn’t know how the emails work but she’s finally ready to start looking for answers. To find those answers she has to go to the one place she swore she’d never set foot in after he died—Haunted Valley, the amusement park. Once there and on the hunt for answers she is distracted by the charming Dallas and falls hard for him. When the answers she finds aren’t what she expected and Dallas betrays her, Savannah must make a choice—succumb to the insanity that destroyed her father or find the strength to rise above it.

It was easy to be drawn into Savannah's life, and it wasn't hard to stay in her story. This was a very quick read and could easily be finished within a day. I loved Savannah, she had such a feisty attitude and she grew a lot from the very beginning. I loved her uncle and her friend, Julia, but I did not like her romantic interest. He grated a lot on my nerves and even when it was explained out, I just wasn't able to accept him. I loved the idea of the book being set around working at an amusement park because I love amusement parks and find it really cool when this story had a major focus on the amusement park. It was sad at times and funny at other times, and I found myself at times trying not to laugh out loud in class while I read this book.
Note: I received this book free to read and review. Thanks to Kimberly Loth.

Blog Tour + Excerpt, Giveaway, and Review: Travel Glasses by Chess Desalls

Title: Travel Glasses
Series: The Call to Search Everywhen
Author: Chess Desalls
Publication Date: May 7, 2014
Calla Winston’s mobile devices sit in a corner of her room, covered  in dust. Weeks ago, she shared photos and laughs with her best online friend. Now, after having felt the sting of betrayal, she prefers being hidden and friendless. She equates privacy with security and technology with pain.
Then she meets Valcas, an otherworldly time traveler who traverses time and space with a pair of altered sunglasses. When an ethereal being knocks Calla to the ground near her family’s lakeside cottage, Valcas uses the Travel Glasses to help her escape. He offers his further protection in exchange for a promise. Intrigued by Valcas and the possibility of time travel, Calla accepts. That is until she learns that his search for her was nomere coincidence.
Calla sets off on her own, taking the Travel Glasses with her. Torn between searching for her estranged father and reuniting with the rest of her family, she tracks down the inventor of the Travel Glasses in hopes of discovering more about Valcas’ past and motivations. The Travel Glasses take Calla’s mistrust of technology to all new levels. But without them, she’ll never make it back home. With Valcas hot on her trail, Calla hopes to find what she’s looking for before he catches up.

I drank deeply from the crystal goblet. The liquid was cool and its flavor was unfamiliar.

“Aren’t these the type of questions one asks before choosing a fiancée?”

Valcas flashed a wide toothy grin. “You’ll fill your role perfectly.”

“What is my role, exactly?”

He draped his arm around me, pulling me closer so that he could explain in a hushed voice. “I just usurped a new throne. Local custom, law actually, requires that a successor not related by blood to the prior ruler be married. Do not worry. You’ll just be posing, acting. You are naturally beautiful and slightly unapproachable— they will interpret that as being secure in your own superiority. It also helps that you have the aura and freshness of someone from a distant land.”

I gave Valcas a hard look. I already knew that he wanted me to help him pretend to be engaged and that he was protecting me from what attacked me twice at the dock. In my haste to get away from the lake I’d agreed to help him. As reality set in, however, the arrangement was starting to sound a lot more long­term and, worse yet, deliberately planned—very well researched. I wasn’t exactly bad looking, but I wouldn’t consider myself beautiful. Was he trying to flatter me? The food in my stomach churned. I gently pulled away from Valcas’ embrace and smoothed out my napkin.

“What if when you found me I was unattractive?”

“I don’t see how that would happen. A dark­haired beauty was one of the necessary components of the search.”

“What were the other necessary components of the search?”

“Well, basic information such as your age, name, rough location—”

“You searched for me? By name?” When he told me about tracking my attacker, I assumed that his search was not specific to me, that I just happened to be the white light’s target when he found it and that I conveniently could return his favor.

“Yes, you.”
