Quickie Book Review – Sweet Water by Christina Baker Kline

Sweet WaterSweet Water by Christina Baker Kline

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great, emotional read! I found myself pulled into the narrative quickly and couldn’t wait to flip each page. Tragic, haunting and redemptive– this novel is the complete package.

And those twisty, turny moments, oy!

Quickie Book Review – Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths, #1)Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved this novel (and when I read book two, I found myself really, really loving that one too). It had the perfect mix of tragic past, quirky characters, undeniable heat, and the added benefit of those didn’t-see-that-coming plot twists. Great, dark and gritty first novel in a series.

And trust me, if you like this one, you’ll adore the next one!

Quickie Book Review – Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

Finding Cinderella (Hopeless, #2.5)Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again, I was knocked flat on my tail by another one of Colleen Hoover’s books. Dang, that woman can write! I don’t even know how to explain it… the characters are rich and funny (snarky, even) and complex and emotional. Ms. Hoover breathes life into her cast, making me cry and hurt with them. And I’m okay with that, because I get to feel elation and joy too.

This spin-off novella has a few parts with Skye and Holder (from Hopeless and Losing Hope) but the crux of the story centers on the respective best friends– and I’m so glad we get to hear their story as well! And what a story it was!

Read it!

Quickie Book Review – For You by Mimi Strong

For YouFor You by Mimi Strong

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lovely romance with a smidgen of mystery and suspense. I love the characters, even with their flaws and baggage. Well-written and original. Fans of Beautiful Disaster should love this book.

FYI: I’ve read other books by Mimi Strong (most recently Stardust– which I freakin’ loved!) so I’m beginning to feel a little bit fan-girl stalkerish 🙂

New Release – Crow: The Prequel by Alex Owens

It’s live! Crow: The Prequel is now available on Amazon. While the rest of the Crow episodes are modern-day and told from both Beylin & Pia’s viewpoints, the prequel goes back in time by about a hundred years– to one of Pia’s past lives– and is told solely from Beylin’s perspective so that you can get to know him better! ❤

BLURB:

He’s loved her for thousands of years, but in this lifetime she doesn’t remember him… yet.

This prequel to the first episode of the Crow series is focused on giving readers a glimpse into one of Pia’s past lives and to show Beylin hard at work as a Memory Stealer and Soul Bearer.

SERIES BLURB:

Cassiopeia “Pia” Alexander is floundering. She can’t pick a college major, her love life is virtually non-existent and the only thing good in her life seems to be her job as an Animal ER Nurse. Even that doesn’t feel like enough, though.

Beylin Callaghan belongs to the Brotherhood, who give souls a winged-ride from one life to the next and remove the memories from each soul so that they have a fresh slate in their new incarnations.

But he’s keeping a secret– a secret that when exposed, will bind Pia’s fate to his own. For better or worse.

***On a side note, I’d recommend reading this one first before going on to the first few episodes that are already available 🙂

P.S. For two days only (7/14 – 7/15) the first three installments will be FREE on Amazon. That’s right, you can grab the new Prequel, as well as Episodes One and Two. Feel free to spread the word too!! 🙂

About the Crow Series:

Cassiopeia “Pia” Alexander is just your typical college student. She can’t pick a major, her love life is virtually non-existent and the only thing good in her life seems to be her job as an Animal ER Nurse. Even that doesn’t feel like enough, though.

Beylin Callaghan is one of the Brotherhood tasked to give souls a winged-ride from one life to the next, and to remove the memories from each soul so that they can start with a fresh slate in their new incarnations.

But he’s keeping a secret– a secret that when exposed, will bind Pia’s fate to his own. For better or worse.
