So here’s the deal with Darkness Becomes Her. I really like the fact that the book is set in New Orleans or New 2 as they call it in the book. New Orleans can be really fun to have your book set in because usually when you have New Orleans you also have voodoo/black magic. Me personally, I really enjoy reading about that sort of thing. Now let me also say that this book really didn’t have that much black magic incorporated in it, just a little. Basically Ari is a girl that has grown up with a foster family and she goes out to follow some leads on her real family to find out where she came from because well.. lets face facts.. she’s a bit of a freak. When she arrives in New 2 she hooks up with this band of ‘misfits’ and finds out that the supernatural really does exist. There isn’t too much action in this first installment of the Gods & Monsters series with the exception of a few run ins with some guys that try to kill her. But don’t let that stop you that from reading because it’s very much worth it. I read the entire book in two days! The main goal of this story is to find out exactly who or what Ari is. I don’t really want to say anything else because I don’t want to give the book away but I can say this much.. the ending definitely delivered for me. I will absolutely be picking up the 2nd book in the series to find out where Ari and her gang of misfits will be headed from here.
I just finished reading Splintered by A.G. Howard and although I will not be giving a lengthy review for this book I have to let everyone know about it. It is by far, hands down the best re-telling of Wonderland that I have read thus far. I would rate this book five stars.. easy. It is that amazing. I will definitely be picking up book two.. Unhinged. I am very excited to see where the author will take this unconventional tale of Wonderland and all its occupants. If you have not read this wonderful story I strongly recommend you do so!
So the last few weeks have been completely chaotic. Non-stop, on the go.. that’s been me. I absolutely love Christmas. It is my favorite holiday. It always has been since I was a child and it hasn’t changed just because I am an adult. Christmas is full of wonder and magic, when the world is filled with love and joy. I have two children and it has always been very important to me to give them the best Christmas possible so we pretty much start right after Thanksgiving by going out to buy the tree and then bringing it home to decorate. It gets us all in the Christmas spirit! Anyhow the point is I wanted to let my beloved subscribers know that I am sorry for the recent neglect. I have been so busy with holiday chores. Trying to get myself and my family ready for that magical day and have not had any real time to do much reading resulting in maybe a few pages a day. Therefore unable to finish any one book up and then share in the expierence. I am actively reading Splintered by A.G. Howard, Immortal Island by S.L. Ross, Angelbound by Christina Bauer, and last but certainly not least The Lost Boys by Lilian Carmine. I expect to finish at least one of those and get you guys a review posted up in the next week. I hope to get my schedule back on track when all the Christmas chaos is finally over. Thank you to everyone for the extra patience. I wish you all a very merry Christmas and happy New Year!
So here is the thing.. I wanted to wait until I was completely finished reading Angelbound before I done the reveal for the second book. But at 53% along I decided to go ahead. The first book is turning out to be pretty kick ass so I am sure that Scala will not disappoint. So without further delay here is the amazing cover for Angelbound Scala!
