People Of Dirt By C. C. Hogan

Cover of People of Dirt by C. C. Hogan. I loved this book too. People of Dirt is even better than Dragons of Dirt.

I laughed. I cried. I did NOT want the book to end.

You will cry reading this one. If you don’t like to cry when reading, then don’t even bother with this one, because it IS GONNA HAPPEN!

I got mad about that too. Wanted to go find Mr. Hogan and kick his butt up and down the street, and around the block.  I got over that. Mostly. I mean really, you can’t have a war and no one dies. It just doesn’t happen so if you gonna read about war, you best be prepared to mourn.

There is a lot of fighting in this book. There are bad people who just DO NOT want the world to be a better place. Plenty of them in this story. They mostly get whooped. Eventually. The story is in the getting there. Lots of interesting stuff in this one.

It is a really good read! Hard to say much about it without spoilers. So go get a copy and read it! There is an excerpt you can read here.

I’m hoping this isn’t really the end. I’m pretty sure there’s more story to be told. If he decides to tell it, I’m gonna read it.

About the book:

Don, the capital of the beautiful country of Sarn is besieged by the armies of Lefton and Tol Nalan and the icy winds that are blowing down from the north.

Preland is in the grip of the worst winter anyone can remember in hundreds of years, and from beyond the Red Mountains, a wagon train arrives, sent by the king of Wone. The people of the north are freezing to death and running of out of food. They need help, help that only the dragons can provide. But it will take hundreds of them; Mistry must send to Angyn for help.

And beyond the storms, the vile True Path are allying with Categan. When the winter is over, they will head south intent on wiping out the dragons and building their new empire.

Not for the first time, Silvi finds herself at the front, being compared to her great father, General Johnson Farthing. But can this young woman lead an army? Can she defeat this terrible foe?

People of Dirt is the dramatic finale of Dirt, series two.

The Ghost Of You And Me Blog Tour

 

The Ghost of You and Me by Kelly Oram was a fun read. I thought it was gonna be really sad and parts were sort of sad, but you can’t really miss someone whose ghost is hanging around. Less so if the ghost happens to be funny.

The ghost is her boyfriend who died. He came back to help her get over feeling guilty and move on. He also wants to help his other friend Wes. Since part of the problem was his fault in the first place, that was the least he could do. I ended up not liking him as much, but if he had not died, he might have grown up to be a pretty good guy. Maybe.

Kids tend to feel guilty for the strangest things. Especially if there is even the slightest bit of logic to it. So the story is pretty realistic that way. Having a ghost hanging around isn’t very realistic, but it makes for a good story.

Bailey learns a lot about appearances. She thought she knew everything. She was wrong. She grew up a lot.

About the book:

How do you tell someone who hates you and blames you for the death of his best friend that you miss him?

From the bestselling teen and young adult author of Cinder & Ella comes a new heart-wrenching romance sure to bring all the feels.

The tragic death of Spencer Schott unravels the lives of the two people he loved most—his girlfriend, Bailey, and his best friend, Wes. Secrets and guilt from that fateful night keep both Bailey and Wes from overcoming Spencer’s loss and moving on with their lives.

Now, nearly a year later, both Bailey and Wes are still so broken over what happened that Spencer can’t find peace in the afterlife. In order to put his soul to rest, he’s given one chance to come back and set things right…even if that means setting up his girlfriend with his best friend.

With the emotional resonance of Jellicoe Road and the magical realism of The Lovely Bones, The Ghost of You and Me is a story about overcoming grief, finding redemption for past mistakes, and the healing power of friendship and love. Fans of John Green, Sarah Dessen, and Nicholas Sparks are sure to love this haunting new tale from Kelly Oram.

This is a clean young adult romance stand alone novel that reads like contemporary drama romance and has just a touch of magical realism.

Excerpt :

I open the door and slam into a solid chest. Strong hands grip my arms to steady me, and they don’t let go. I know the hands are Wes’s without having to look. “Are you okay?” he asks.

At first, I’m comforted by his presence. His smell is familiar, and the heat of his tall, lean body feels like it could thaw my frozen heart. For a split second, I melt against him. His arms come around me as if holding me is as natural to him as breathing. For a second, everything is right in my pathetic world. For a second, I’m alive again.

“Bailey, what’s wrong?” His usually smooth, deep voice is gruff.

My head jerks up at the sound of my name, and reality catches up with me. I scramble out of his embrace, attempting to swallow back my panic. He’s watching me, waiting for an answer. I haven’t spoken to him since the funeral, and I’m not sure I can do it now. It takes me a minute to find my voice, and when I do, I blurt out, “What are you doing here?”

He sucks in a breath through his nose as he steps back, gripping the strap of a bag slung over his shoulder. Seeing the backpack, my jaw drops. “Are you coming back to school?”

The genuine horror in my voice makes him flinch. There’d been a bit of light in his eyes, but it’s gone now. His face closes off. “No, I’m not coming back to school here.”

He adjusts that strap again, then switches the backpack to his other shoulder while glaring at the ground. I’ve offended him. Or maybe he just still hates me. I wouldn’t blame him. I got his best friend killed, after all. I hate me.

Seeing him reminds me of that night all over again. The events replay in my mind with vivid detail. Everything from finding Wes and stopping him from doing something unthinkable, to the kiss, to the fight, and finally the accident and Wes holding me back while paramedics did their best to try and save Spencer’s life.

One look at his face, and I can tell Wes is thinking about the same events. He closes his eyes and takes a breath. When he looks at me again, his expression has smoothed out. “How are you?” he asks. “You know…today.”

I swallow back a lump of emotion. I’m not surprised that Wes knows today is Spencer’s and my anniversary, but his acknowledgement of it feels like a knife in my heart. Why does he care? He hated that Spencer and I were together, and he used to get so cranky on this day every year.

“What’s today?” someone behind me murmurs. “It’s not the anniversary of Spencer’s death. That’s not for a couple weeks.”

A crowd of students have gathered to watch the drama. I don’t know who spoke, but I wish I could make them all disappear. Could people be any more tactless? Why can’t they just mind their own business?

When my eyes start to burn, I turn to leave. I can’t stand here any longer.

Wes puts a hand on my shoulder to stop me. “Bay, wait.”

I freeze. Aside from that night, Wes hasn’t used my nickname since I got together with Spencer and he started hating me for stealing his best friend.

Wes lets me go and rubs a hand over his head. “Sorry. I just—we should really talk.”

“Don’t.” With a quivering voice and stinging eyes, I whisper, “I can’t do this. Not today.” Maybe not ever.

I can’t take it anymore. I can’t stare into those knowing eyes for another second. My guilt is bad enough without seeing his sadness and anger.

Wes doesn’t say anything as I leave, doesn’t try to stop me. I head straight for my car and don’t care if I get in trouble for leaving. All that matters is getting far, far away from here. I’m not really running from Wes. I’m running from the past. Running from myself. Those are two things I will never escape, but I run anyway.

Get it now on Amazon!

Dragons Of Dirt By C. C. Hogan Review

Cover of Dragons of Dirt by C. C. Hogan.I loved this book! It is as good or maybe even better than the first book Girls of Dirt.

This one is a continuation of the story. It has a lot more of the Dragons in it. Dragons are everywhere! Very cool dragons they are too.

These dragons are pretty much like people. They like tending gardens, olive groves, fishing, making beer, and drinking beer. Any idea how much beer a dragon can drink?? Lots. They better make it themselves or there won’t be enough.

This book has a lot of fighting going on. The good guys are trying to improve things for everyone. The bad guys only want things to be good for them. Which is pretty much business as usual, even in our world. Too bad we don’t have dragons here, even if they don’t eat people.

Anyway…this second book has lots of adventures, training people to fight, big battles, small battles, a few mysteries, even Romance! It has a bit of everything.

I was really glad that Mistry finally found someone else to love. That was way cool. So has Silvi. Ferret is still a bit shy but maybe she will get there too.

I will be starting on the third book soon and then the reading the first series.  My mom tells me the first series is better than the second series, so I’m really looking forward to that.

If you haven’t read these books yet, you should! The first book in each series is FREE so you don’t have any excuse not to try. None of them cost much and you can buy them here or through the links on the World of Dirt website.

About the Book:

In the hills above Meressa, on the southern coast of Preland and in the ruined town of Ponack, dragons are now returning and setting up small, optimistic communities.

Mistry must now work to put the rest of her centuries-old plan into action, but nothing can happen until they find the descendant of the Cwendrina.

But while Silvi and Ferret travel across Preland with Be-Elin and Mab-Abin, two old enemies are rising across the Yonder Sea in Bind.

Whether or not they are successful in their search, they will have to confront the warring Keffra-See and the memory of the Haftens.

For Silvi Farthing, it will mean a trial by war that will tear her soul in two.

The saga continues with Dragons of Dirt.

“I have done as you and Be-Elin asked and as I promised myself I would do.” He turned to the small women, his eyes bleak. “Why does it hurt so much?”

Mistry took his hands in hers, reached up and wiped the tears from his face. “Good deeds hurt the most, Edver. And good people feel the pain most of all.”

Black Dawn By Mallory McCartney Blog Tour

Black Dawn by Mallory McCartney cover.About the Book:

Black Dawn by Mallory McCartney
Publication Date: February 14, 2017
Publisher: Clean Reads Publishing

The end of an Empire, the rise of a Queen

Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory’s arrival she will discover she is the long-lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.

With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.

Some things are better left in the shadows

Excerpt:

Jaxson sat on a wooden perch, his chin resting on his hands as he stared longingly onto the horizon. She spoke softly, “Go to bed, Jaxson, I have it from here.”

Snapping to attention, he jumped slightly, not having heard her come in. “Nyx, you scared me a bit there. How are you?”

She winked at him. “Needing some starlight and an endless night.”

Nodding solemnly, Jaxson hopped down. Before leaving, he placed a burly hand on her shoulder. “We have to be prepared not to give up hope. For Alby.”

His words were like a weight anchoring onto the ocean floor. Nyx climbed up on the perch as Jaxson left, the door swinging closed behind him. Nyx closed her eyes. She could move forward with this. It was already too late. She had pushed Memphis to make his decision. He believed in Emory like he had never believed in her. He had and would always choose Emory. Her chin wobbled as her eyes snapped open. There was no going back now. She silently said goodbye to the man she loved as her eyes searched the land stretching out in front of her. To her left, the woods, and beyond that, an escarpment of mountain terrain…and Adair. It was as simple as breathing as Nyx reached out, her mind brushing against a thousand consciousnesses. A thousand whispers sounded back to her. She searched only for one. She didn’t have to wait long.

The Upside Of Regret By T. K. Rapp Blog Tour

 

Cover pic of The Upside of Regret by T. K. Rapp.

I enjoyed reading The Upside of Regret by T. K. Rapp. It is an easy to read young adult romance. Great read for a rainy day.

It has a great ending, but the getting there was the best part.

Brighton has a great family. I loved how they watch out for her. The romance between her and Matt was handled really well too, with nothing getting out of hand.

One of the main characters, Leah, kept making me mad during the first half of the book. She liked a bad guy, who just plain was not nice, and let him get away with lots of crap. As I learned more about what was really going on, it reminded me that we don’t always know everything we think we know. Especially about other people.

And really good friends are hard to come by. Hang on to them.  Tight!

About the book:

Brighton and Leah have been the best of friends since seventh grade. Where Brighton is the quiet one who is focused on school, Leah is the bold and daring one who craves the adoration of an audience. It’s always worked for them, until now.

Heading into their senior year, Brighton is challenged with an opportunity that can change the course of her future. The only problem? She just might have to step out of her best friend’s shadow.

But when Leah doesn’t support the choices she makes, Brighton is forced to reevaluate what true friendship is.

Brighton is changing and exciting doors are opening. A new world of music, friends, and even love are falling at her feet. But it’s hard to enjoy it when Leah’s life is spiraling out of control.

Now Brighton must try to not only save her friendship, but also her friend, before it’s too late.

The Tick Tock Man by R.M. Clark

Publication Date: May 2, 2017
Publisher: Month9Books/Tantrum Books

When the clocks in town stop, thirteen-year- old CJ discovers an unusual “clock world”; where most of the citizens are clock parts, tasked with keeping the big clocks running. But soon the seemingly peaceful world is divided between warring factions with CJ instructed to find the only person who can help: the elusive Tick Tock Man.

With the aid of Fuzee, a partly-human girl, he battles gear-headed extremists and razor-sharp pendulums in order to restore order before this world of chimes, springs, and clock people dissolves into a massive time warp, taking CJ’s quiet New England town with it.

Guest Post:

Where did you get the idea for the “clock world”? It certainly sounds different.

I was sitting in a parking lot one day and I noticed that the large, analog clock on the tower of the building across the street had stopped and I wondered why. Driving home, I noticed another big clock had stopped. Hmmmm, I thought. Very strange. That night, I conceived an imaginary world of citizens who are tasked with keeping all the clocks in town running and also a reason for the clocks to stop. Just to be different, I gave the “clock world” German in origin and made the towns in it look like German villages like you would see on top of a fancy cuckoo clock. I was fortunate that real clock parts like fuzee, ratchet, strike, verge, and hammer made for excellent character names, and real German geographic names like Furtwangen, Kinzig, Murg and Enz easily fell into place for this story.

I added some conflict, a little adventure and, just like that, The Tick Tock Man came to life.

So why did all the clocks stop? You’ll have to read The Tick Tock Man to find out!

Girls Of Dirt By C. C. Hogan

Girls of Dirt cover.Girls of Dirt by C. C. Hogan is a wonderful adventure! I loved this book! I started reading it right after breakfast the day before yesterday. I ended up not doing much of anything at all besides reading. All day!

The animals are lucky I remembered to feed them. I had to stop when the kindle quit. I had forgotten to charge it. Ticked me off.

Of course I couldn’t have done that if the hubby wasn’t out of town. He would have been fussing at me. It was a great day lol.

Now keep in mind this is a BIG book. I love big books. If they are good. Because I never want the story to end. In this case there are two more books in this series to read. So I’m happy about that.

This one is about girls. Well one of them is a girl. Not yet eighteen when the story starts. The others are more grown up, but still seem pretty girlish which is about right. I still feel like a girl most of the time and really have no intention of growing up. So there! :p

AND!! AND!! There be DRAGONS! Yea Dragons. I love dragons. Especially these dragons. They are not grown up either lol. And some of them are smart alecks.  All of them are good people (dragons?). I liked them.

The girls and the dragons end up trying to save the world from jerks. Which I’m all for. Wish they could come here. That would be way cool. I would love to ride a dragon.

It isn’t all sweetness and light. There is an attempted rape scene, some bloody battle scenes, and some really bad people to deal with.

Very good read! You will laugh, you will cry, you will cheer them on. You WILL want to read the other books in the series. They don’t cost much though and you can buy them here or through the links on the World of Dirt website.

About the Book:

It is five hundred years since the end of the great wars, and Pree and Farthing’s hopes of a new world are in tatters. The dragons are nothing more than children’s tales, the population of Dirt is smaller, tiny countries are ruled by greedy kings and humans are poorer and struggling.

But on the Isle of Hope, the weather is warm, the life is good and Silvi Farthing, the seventeen-year-old descendant of Johnson and Mistry, is making cheese and keeping goats.

But her little dream of independence is about to be turned upside down by her misogynistic and violent brothers, and she is not convinced that her rescuer is not actually worse!

So begins a new chapter in the story of Dirt as Silvi, Be-Elin, Mab-Abin and the Ancient Ferret, Weasel’s daughter, work to bring back the dragons, and look for a country where they will be accepted by the people and can help build a better future for all of Dirt.

Includes a recap of Series One.

Other Breakable Things By Kelley York And Rowen Altwood Review

Cover of Other Breakable Things by Kelley York and Rowen Altwood.I loved this book! I could not stop reading it even to take a break. I almost peed myself. It was that good!

It made me cry.  I am gonna want to read it again too. So yea. REALLY good book.

It is well written, with the story coming in parts from both the main characters. I liked that a lot. It helps you see the other side of a situation.

I loved both the main characters, even if they were both too stubborn for their own good. They both did some growing and lost a bit of the stubborn during the trip together. I was really glad to see Evelyn stand up to her moms boyfriend. She grew up a lot.

I wish the story would have lasted longer. I have a lot more sympathy for transplant patients now too.

About the Book:

Other Breakable Things

by Kelley York and Rowan Altwood

Publication Date:  April 4 ,2017

Publisher:  Entangled Teen

According to Japanese legend, folding a thousand paper cranes will grant you healing.

Evelyn Abel will fold two thousand if it will bring Luc back to her.

Luc Argent has always been intimately acquainted with death. After a car crash got him a second chance at life—via someone else’s transplanted heart—he tried to embrace it. He truly did. But he always knew death could be right around the corner again.

And now it is.

Sick of hospitals and tired of transplants, Luc is ready to let his failing heart give out, ready to give up. A road trip to Oregon—where death with dignity is legal—is his answer. But along for the ride is his best friend, Evelyn.

And she’s not giving up so easily.

A thousand miles, a handful of roadside attractions, and one life-altering kiss later, Evelyn’s fallen, and Luc’s heart is full. But is it enough to save him? Evelyn’s betting her heart, her life, that it can be.

Right down to the thousandth paper crane.

Secrets Of A Reluctant Princess By Casey Griffin

Secrets of a Reluctant Princes by Casey Griffin book cover.Secrets of a Reluctant Princes by Casey Griffin is a fun adventure/romance. I enjoyed reading it. I really liked Adrianna. Living with cameras following you all the time, can’t be easy, and she had to deal with that as well as all the “normal” teen problems. Did a fair good job of it too.

I liked the larping episodes as well. I used to be involved with a D & D group, but only online. I had no idea that larping was the same thing, just live. The live action play sounds like a lot more fun. Especially the costumes.

I loved the ending of this one. Not gonna tell you about it, cause you really need to read the book for yourself, but I will say it has a bit of fairy tale feel. Really great read. Wouldn’t mind if there was more about these characters in the future.

 

About the book:

Secrets of a Reluctant Princess by Casey Griffin

Publication Date: March 7, 2017

Publisher:  Entangled Teen

 

At Beverly Hills High, you have to be ruthless to survive…

Adrianna Bottom always wanted to be liked. But this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Now, she’s in the spotlight…and out of her geeky comfort zone. She’ll do whatever it takes to turn the rumor mill in her favor—even if it means keeping secrets. So far, it’s working.

Wear the right clothes. Say the right things. Be seen with the right people.

Kevin, the adorable sketch artist who shares her love of all things nerd, isn’t exactly the right people. But that doesn’t stop Adrianna from crushing on him. The only way she can spend time with him is in disguise, as Princess Andy, the masked girl he’s been LARPing with. If he found out who she really was, though, he’d hate her.

The rules have been set. The teams have their players. Game on.

Beauty’s Thief By Konstanz Silverbow Book Blast

Beauty's Thief
Sounds interesting. It is the fourth book in a series. Just want you to know that so you don’t go get it and then get upset because now you have to go buy the other three, or go stark raving mad wondering about what happened in the others. You know that will happen. Might as well get them all at once :p Fair warning!

Beauty’s Thief by Konstanz Silverbow

Not every monster has claws—not every beauty is kind.

Born a princess, raised to be queen, but living as a servant, Avalyn never realized she would pay the price for her father’s mistakes. Now Avalyn is living in a castle not her own, a slave to an evil witch who wants revenge on the man who betrayed her trust and ruined her.

For Avalyn, her real punishment has yet to begin.

She will be cursed to work for the witch for the next one hundred years unless true love can find its way into the castle and into her heart.
Now the princess’s freedom rests in the hands of a lowly thief who cares only for himself.

Author Konstanz Silverbow

Konstanz Silverbow has always been a dreamer . . . but not a writer. Being an author was something she was dragged into. But since that day, she hasn’t stopped. It has become more than a hobby, it is a passion.

During the day Konstanz works, making jewelry, playing the violin, collecting dragons, and learning all she can about medieval weapons. But at night she creates made up worlds and places where those dragons come to life and the weapons are used in battle.”

Proud Creator of magical worlds, fictional creatures, ideal super heroes and sarcasm since 2007!
