Title: Seraphina’s Awakening
Author: Sheena Hutchinson
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Cover Designer: Cover Me, Darling
Hosted by: Lady Amber's PR

Blurb: For as long as she can remember, Seraphina Cross has experienced these visions that made her feel like there was more to life. It wasn’t until one moment, one accident that her life changed forever.
She awakens the next day a new person in more ways than one. With no recollection of past night’s events, she’s forced to adapt to certain sensations she is experiencing all while trying to piece together what exactly happened to her that fateful night. Her strange, hectic life doesn’t seem to make sense until she meets a handsome stranger. Only then does the puzzle finally piece itself together.
What she doesn’t expect is the new powers she has developed attracting all kinds of unwanted attention. Thrown into a world she never truly believed existed she is forced to come to grips with who she is becoming while staying out of trouble long enough to figure out what needs to be done to fulfill her destiny.

Sheena is a born and raised New Yorker, even her writing can’t hide her hard sarcasm. She claims destiny lead her to writing again. She constantly strives to be a positive role model and write stories that empower and inspire.  
Sheena always roots for the underdog, believes in love at first sight, and that everyone should have their happily ever after. While God is currently writing her love story she continues to put all her time into her writing as she is constantly getting new inspiration.

Review: Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things (Dead Things #1) By Martina McAtee

Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things (Dead Things, #1)

Book: Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things (Dead Things #1)
Author: Martina McAtee
Publisher: Martina McAtee
Rating: 5 Stars
Level: Young Adult
Source: e-book (free promo at time downloaded)

Summary from Goodreads:

17 year old Ember Denning has made an art of isolating herself. She prefers the dead. She spends her days skipping school in old cemeteries and her nights hiding from her alcoholic father at the funeral home where she works. When her own father dies, Ember learns her whole life is a lie. Standing in the cemetery that’s been her sanctuary, she’s threatened by the most beautiful boy she’s ever seen and rescued by two people who claim to be her family. They say she’s special, that she has a supernatural gift like them…they just don’t know exactly what it is. 

They take her to a small Florida town, where Ember’s life takes a turn for the weird. She’s living with her reaper cousins, an orphaned werewolf pack, a faery and a human genius. Ember’s powers are growing stronger, morphing into something bigger than anything anybody anticipated. Ember has questions but nobody has answers. Nobody knows what she is. They only know her mysterious magical gift is trying to kill them and that beautiful dangerous boy from the cemetery may be the only thing standing between her and death. 

As Ember’s talents are revealed so are the secrets her father hid and those in power who would seek to destroy her. What’s worse, saving Ember has put her cousins in danger and turned her friend’s lives upside down. Ember must learn to embrace her magic or risk losing the family she’s pieced together.

The Sunday Post

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

What I've been doing

Well first off this is my The Sunday Post.  I started my blog many years ago and then life happened.  I never stopped posting.  But I did really only post reviews for a long time because I just didn't have the time, energy or desire to do much more.  But that has changed recently and I have started like just in the last week or so getting back to doing more.  I want to focus more time on my blog, it's fun for me.  

When I'm not reading or blogging I am working.  I am self employed and work from home.  I have an Ebay store and a Poshmark Closet.  I have sell clothing, shoes, accessories and sometimes other items not related to fashion.  You can check them out if you would like. 

Ok so this past week I have been as I said trying to get into blogging again.  I am trying to get caught up on my review books list.  I am also wanting to join more blog tours so if you know of any please let me know.

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: The Emerald Cloth by Clare C. Marshall

Title: The Emerald Cloth
Author: Clare C. Marshall
Genre: YA Fantasy
Cover Designer: David Farrell
Publisher: Faery Ink Press
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb: Resist.
That’s what my friends tell me.
But to free my prince,
And save my people from extinction,
I must cooperate with my greatest rival.
Everyone believes Kiera Driscoll is dead. Only her friends know the Violet Fox is alive, because they’re in hiding with her deep in Feenagh Forest.
Prince Keegan Tramore, who married Kiera in secret, faces a far worse fate. Cursed to slumber eternally, Keegan has been captured by the powerful Frostfire family. The curse is spreading, only affecting those born on the surface. Worse, the Frostfires pin the blame on the Freetors and persecute them relentlessly–a nightmare for Kiera, who wants all Marlenians to live in harmony. Difficult, now that the Frostfires and their Northern allies–including Kiera’s bitter enemy, Lady Dominique Castillo–have usurped Keegan’s rightful throne.
There is one hope: the Emerald Cloth, an artefact with legendary healing properties. Although Kiera swore she’d never seek another artefact again, she will do anything to protect her people. The Frostfires seek the cure as well–and they’ll go to great lengths to prevent it from falling into Kiera’s hands.
Whatever the cost, Kiera must free Keegan and her people from the magic-induced slumber before the kingdoms succumb to the curse of the Silver Spear.

CLARE C. MARSHALL grew up in rural Nova Scotia with very little television and dial-up internet, and yet she turned out okay. Her YA sci-fi novel Dreams In Her Head was nominated for the 2014 Creation of Stories award. Her hit fantasy novel The Violet Fox earned an honorable mention in the 2016 Whistler Independent Book Awards. She is a full-time freelance editor, book designer, and web manager. If there’s time left in the day, she devotes it to Faery Ink Press, her publishing imprint. When she’s not writing or fiddling up a storm, she enjoys computer games and making silly noises at cats.

That's What He Said Thursday


On Thursdays we are hosting a brand new meme called: That’s what HE said Thursday.
Come join us by posting a favorite line from your book boyfriend to his heroine. Keep in mind these are direct quotes from dialogue in a book. It is NOT a physical description of a male protag or a paragraph of dialogue. It is a line spoken by our favorite heroes to their lucky ladies (whom we so wish we were!!!!!!) sigh… okay so each Thursday create your post (making sure to add Chapter Break as host of course!), add your post to our linky and share!  This should be fun. We are excited to see what everyone comes up with.
