Mini-Book Review: Legacy by C.J Daugherty (Night School #2)


Goodreads Blurb: In the last year, Allie’s survived three arrests, two breakups and one family breakdown. The only bright point has been her new life at Cimmeria Academy. It’s the one place she’s felt she belongs. And the fact that it’s brought dark-eyed Carter West into her life hasn’t hurt either. But far from being a safe haven, the cloistered walls of Cimmeria are proving more dangerous than Allie could have imagined. The students and faculty are under threat, and Allie’s family – from her mysterious grandmother to her runaway brother – are at the centre of the storm. Allie is going to have to choose between protecting her family and trusting her friends. But secrets have a way of ripping even the strongest relationships apart…

Hey guys!
So I finally got twitter and I’m so glad I did because the last week has been a blast! Retweeting other people and promoting my own blog posts has been really fun. Not to mention all the conversations I’ve had with all the other amazing people using Twitter.  Hopefully, my retweets have helped draw more traffic to your blogs/content and if you’ve retweeted me, followed me, or even liked my tweets – THANK YOU SO MUCH! 

Since this is my first attempt at using social media to promote my book blog, I’m really not sure what I should or shouldn’t be doing. If you have any super-useful tips then tweet them to me or comment below!

Feel free to click on the giant bird at the top of the blog post + follow me! 🙂

Happy blogging!

Book Review: Ticker by Lisa Mantchev



AuthorLisa Mantchev

Publication Date: December 1st 2014

Rating: 3.7 stars

Goodreads Blurb: 

A girl with a clockwork heart must make every second count.
When Penny Farthing nearly dies, brilliant surgeon Calvin Warwick manages to implant a brass “Ticker” in her chest, transforming her into the first of the Augmented. But soon it’s discovered that Warwick killed dozens of people as he strove to perfect another improved Ticker for Penny, and he’s put on trial for mass murder.
On the last day of Warwick’s trial, the Farthings’ factory is bombed, Penny’s parents disappear, and Penny and her brother, Nic, receive a ransom note demanding all of their Augmentation research if they want to see their parents again. Is someone trying to destroy the Farthings…or is the motive more sinister?
Desperate to reunite their family and rescue their research, Penny and her brother recruit fiery baker Violet Nesselrode, gentleman-about-town Sebastian Stirling, and Marcus Kingsley, a young army general who has his own reasons for wanting to lift the veil between this world and the next. Wagers are placed, friends are lost, romance stages an ambush, and time is running out for the girl with the clockwork heart.

book blogger hop

This blog hop is hosted by Billy @ The Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer

Question: Do you ever get comments from authors when you have posted or tweeted your review?

Answer: I’d like to say yes but considering I’ve only been blogging for 3 months now, I really haven’t gotten contacted by an author about a review I posted..yet. Despite the “controversy” on authors responding to book reviews, I would really be honored to get a response to a (preferably positive) review.

eARC Review: Phantom’s Dance by Lesa Howard


Title: Phantom’s Dance

AuthorLesa Howard

Publication Date: April 6th 2014

Rating: 4.5 stars

Goodreads Blurb: 

Christine Dadey’s family uprooted their lives and moved to Houston for her to attend the prestigious Rousseau Academy of Dance. Now, two years later, Christine struggles to compete among the Academy’s finest dancers, her parents are on the brink of divorce, and she’s told no one about her debilitating performance anxiety and what she’s willing to do to cope with it. Erik was a ballet prodigy, a savant, destined to be a star on the world’s stage, but a suspicious fire left Erik’s face horribly disfigured. Now, a lonely phantom forced to keep his scars hidden, he spends his nights haunting the theater halls, mourning all he’s lost. Then, from behind the curtain he sees the lovely Christine. The moldable, malleable Christine. Drawn in by Erik’s unwavering confidence, Christine allows herself to believe Erik’s declarations that he can transform her into the dancer she longs to be. But Christine’s hope of achieving her dreams may be her undoing when she learns Erik is not everything he claims. And before long, Erik’s shadowy past jeopardizes Christine’s unstable present as his obsession with her becomes hopelessly entangled with his plans for revenge.
