The Final Six by Alexandra Monir: A ARC Review

When Leo, an Italian championship swimmer, and Naomi, a science genius from California, are two of the twenty-four teens drafted into the International Space Training Camp, their lives are forever altered. After erratic climate change has made Earth a dangerous place to live, the fate of the population rests on the shoulders of the final six who will be scouting a new planet. Intense training, global scrutiny, and cutthroat opponents are only a few of the hurdles the contestants must endure in this competition.

For Leo, the prospect of traveling to Europa—Jupiter’s moon—to help resettle humankind is just the sense of purpose he’s been yearning for since losing his entire family in the flooding of Rome. Naomi, after learning of a similar space mission that mysteriously failed, suspects the ISTC isn’t being up front with them about what’s at risk.

As the race to the final six advances, the tests get more challenging—even deadly. With pressure mounting, Naomi finds an unexpected friend in Leo, and the two grow closer with each mind-boggling experience they encounter. But it’s only when the finalists become fewer and their destinies grow nearer that the two can fathom the full weight of everything at stake: the world, the stars, and their lives.

This was a fast paced sci-fi dystopian book. It roped me in from the beginning and had me page turning every step of the way to find out what happens next. I really enjoy this authors writing style and I can't wait to read more of her books, as this is the second book by Monir that I have had the chance to read.

In this one we have two perspectives, but it wasn't confusing, which was a nice change. Leo and Naomi. Leo seems very genuine and Naomi is head strong. And they both embark on this mission for different reasons. While Leo is gun hoe about going since he has nothing left for in his flooded Rome, Naomi is resistant and a bit hesitant about going due to leaving her ill brother behind. These two unlikely teens share a bond and you can see that right from the start.

I really enjoyed this book and I'm hoping for a sequel as this ended on a cliffhanger. If you like dystopian and science fiction and space travel, then this book is just for you.

Alexandra Monir is an Iranian-American author and recording artist. Her debut, Timeless, was a Barnes & Noble Bestseller and an Amazon Best Book of the Month and was followed by its sequel, Timekeeper, as well as Suspicion, The Girl in the Picture, and The Final Six.

Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce: A Rockstar Book Tour

Welcome to the Tempests and Slaughter book tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. I don't have a review for you today, but I do have some pretty great info about the book! Plus, scroll down and you will find a pretty nice giveaway!

Title: Tempests and Slaughter
Author: Tamora Pierce
Pub. Date: February 6, 2018
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Pages: 480
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook 

Arram. Varice. Ozorne. In the first book in the Numair Chronicles, three student mages are bound by fate . . . fated for trouble.

Arram Draper is a boy on the path to becoming one of the realm’s most powerful mages. The youngest student in his class at the Imperial University of Carthak, he has a Gift with unlimited potential for greatness–and for attracting danger. At his side are his two best friends: Varice, a clever girl with an often-overlooked talent, and Ozorne, the “leftover prince” with secret ambitions. Together, these three friends forge a bond that will one day shape kingdoms. And as Ozorne gets closer to the throne and Varice gets closer to Arram’s heart, Arram begins to realize that one day soon he will have to decide where his loyalties truly lie.

In the Numair Chronicles, readers will be rewarded with the never-before-told story of how Numair SalmalĂ­n came to Tortall. Newcomers will discover an unforgettable fantasy adventure where a kingdom’s future rests on the shoulders of a talented young man with a knack for making vicious enemies.

Tamora Pierce is a bestselling author of young adult fantasy books that break past the traditions of the fantasy genre to feature teenage girls as knights, wizards, and above all: heroes. A #1 New York Times bestseller and the recipient of the 2013 Margaret A. Edwards award, Tamora has written over 30 books, including the upcoming TORTALL: A SPY'S GUIDE (Oct. 31, 2017) and TEMPESTS AND SLAUGHTER (Feb. 6, 2018).

Tamora was drawn to books from a young age. Raised in rural Pennsylvania, the child of a "long, proud line of hillbillies," her family never had much. "We were poor, but I didn't know it then. We had a garden where my folks grew fruit and vegetables and our water came from a well," she explains. But one thing they did have was plenty of books. So Tamora read.

A self-proclaimed "geek," she devoured fantasy and science fiction novels, and by the age of 12 was mimicking her literary idols and writing her own action-packed stories. It was thanks to her father that Tamora began writing. "He heard me telling myself stories as I did dishes, and he suggested that I try to write some of them down," Pierce says.

But Tamora's novels had one major difference: unlike the books she was reading, her stories featured teenaged girl warriors. "I couldn't understand this lapse of attention on the part of the writers I loved, so until I could talk them into correcting this small problem, I wrote about those girls, the fearless, bold, athletic creatures that I was not, but wanted so badly to be."

Seventeen years later, after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, a brief career in teen social work and some time spent writing for radio, Tamora Pierce held true to her childhood crusade, and published ALANNA: THE FIST ADVENTURE, the first in a quartet about a valiant, young, female warrior. Pierce's heroine struck a chord with readers across the country and quickly earned her a loyal following.

Now, with over 30 critically-acclaimed books to her name, Pierce lives in upstate New York with her husband Tim and their menagerie of nine cats, two birds, a flock of pigeons, various raccoons and squirrels, and one opossum. "It's a pretty good life, if I do say so myself. Struggling along as a kid and even through my twenties, it's the kind of life I dreamed of but never believed I would get. Yet here I am, after a lot of work, a lot of worry, a lot of care for details, and a massive chunk of luck, the kind that brought me such strong friends and readers. Pretty good for a hillbilly, yes? And I never take it for granted."

Never Apart by Romily Bernard: A Book Review

Title: Never Apart
Author: Romily Bernard
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Publish Date: October 3rd 2017
Pages: 400
Buy It: Amazon | Book Depository

How many times would you die for love?
What if you had to relive the same five days over and over?

And what if at the end of it, your boyfriend is killed…

And you have to watch. Every time.

You don’t know why you’re stuck in this nightmare.

But you do know that these are the rules you now live by:

Wake Up.




Now, the only way to escape this loop is to attempt something crazy. Something dangerous. Something completely unexpected. This time…you’re not going to run.

Combining heart-pounding romance and a thrilling mystery Never Apart is a stunning story you won’t soon forget.

I love Romily's work. I really loved her series, Find Me. When I was sent this for review, I was so ecstatic and then I shelved it and forgot about it, whoops. But then I picked it up to read. I actually had to put it down because I didn't know if I was going to like it. At first, this was way confusing and irritating, going back and forth between the past and present. I mean, literally, each chapter went back and forth. One chapter was the present and the next it was the past. I actually put this down and starting working on other projects (like my crafting) for a few weeks. I read some reviews and every review I read was raving about it. So, because I absolutely loved her other work, I decided to give it a try again. I was really glad that I did. This story moved quickly and I read it in 2 days, which is not an easy feat for me since I have 2 kids and a new dog that requires my full attention haha. 

So we have 4 main characters. Grace, Jem, Ander and Finn. It starts off with Grace and Ander running through a swamp, trying to get away from Finn because they think he's trying to kill them again. Yep, you heard that right, again. Then we are thrown into a past/present type telling. We hear about the past which coincides with the present and what Grace is going through at present. Throughout the book, we learn of her different "falls" and we get to see what everyone is like. I, myself, wasn't too fond of Ander from the beginning, he just felt kind of shady and just not good for Grace. But of course, as the saying goes, you can't help who you love. I really want to go into more detail on this, but I really don't want to spoil the book for everyone.

This quickly turned into a fast paced thriller/love story/mystery. I really enjoyed it. I suggest that you go pick it up and find out for yourself.

Romily Bernard graduated from Georgia State University with a Literature degree. Since then, she’s worked as a riding instructor, cell phone salesgirl, personal assistant, groom, exercise rider, accounting assistant, and, during a very dark time, customer service rep.
So don’t let anyone tell you a BA degree will keep you unemployed.
Her YA thrillers FIND ME, REMEMBER ME, LIE FOR ME, AND TRUST ME are now available.

Zenith by Lindsay Cummings & Sasha Alsberg: ARC Review

Title: Zenith (The Androma Saga #1)
Author: Sasha Alsberg, Lindsay Cummings
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publish Date: January 16th 2018
Buy It: Amazon | Book Depository

Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness, a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her glass starship, Marauder, however, she's just Andi, their friend and fearless leader.

But when a routine mission goes awry, the Marauder's all-girl crew is tested as they find themselves in a treacherous situation and at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter from Andi's past.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.

Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their shipor just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles toward the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only certainty is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted.

Ok, so I am really on the edge for this. I really really wanted to love this book. I have heard great things about it and when I had the chance to review through Miss Print, I jumped on the chance. This one just intrigued me from the start, but once I started to read this, it fell by the wayside and my interest was elsewhere very quickly. I had to put this one down very early on, which I don't normally do. And, if I do, I usually pick it back up and try try again, but sadly, it wasn't the case for this one.

I hope others out there enjoyed this more than me and I urge everyone to pick it up and try to read it for themselves and form their own opinions. But as of right now, its not for me. The only reason for the 2 star rating is because I really liked the idea behind this. But it's very confusing for me.

A Poison Dark & Drowning by Jessica Cluess: A Book Review

Title: A Poison Dark & Drowning (Kingdom On Fire #2)
Author: Jessica Cluess
Publisher: Random House
Publish Date: September 19th 2017
Pages: 432
Buy It: Amazon | Book Depository

The magicians want her to lead. The sorcerers want her to lie. The demons want her blood. Henrietta wants to save the one she loves. But will his dark magic be her undoing?

Henrietta doesn’t need a prophecy to know that she’s in danger. She came to London to be named the chosen one, the first female sorcerer in centuries, the one who would defeat the bloodthirsty Ancients. Instead, she discovered a city ruled by secrets. And the biggest secret of all: Henrietta is not the chosen one.

Still, she must play the role in order to keep herself and Rook, her best friend and childhood love, safe. But can she truly save him? The poison in Rook’s system is transforming him into something monstrous as he begins to master dark powers of his own.

So when Henrietta finds a clue to the Ancients’ past that could turn the tide of the war, she persuades Blackwood, the mysterious Earl of Sorrow-Fell, to travel up the coast to seek out strange new weapons. And Magnus, the brave, reckless flirt who wants to win back her favor, is assigned to their mission. Together, they will face monsters, meet powerful new allies, and uncover the most devastating weapon of all: the truth.

This one took me a bit longer to read due to the holidays and all the chaos, but when I was finally able to sit down and give it my full attention, it was completely worth it. 

So this one picks up where we left off in first book. We have about the same amount of romance, if not a little more as revelations come to pass about feelings and you just end up with a love square instead of a triangle. New ships are made or destroyed. And new characters are introduced. As well as discoveries being made about Henrietta’s parents. 

I will not hide my feelings toward Rook. He wasn’t in this book that much, and that was perfectly fine with me. To me he is more of a burden and should just be counted as a friend and not someone that could be a love interest. He seems to hold Henrietta back from a lot of things. I realize that they were childhood friends and probably the only friend each had, but there comes a point where you need to move on from one another. I really think he was used more as bait from the beginning and as you read this book, you will understand my feelings toward that. 

Magnus was one of my favorites in both books. He had proclaimed how he feels towards Henrietta, and I think that if he wasn’t betrothed in the first book we would have seen the relationship bloom a bit more in this one. But as he was and he swore he would not talk about his feelings with her, we see their friendship grow and possible feelings as well. 

Blackwood is my other favorite and he proclaims his feelings toward Henrietta in this book. I think it was just building up to it in the first book, and how Henrietta was so oblivious to his feelings in the first place was beyond me. I’m glad they explored this relationship possibility in this book. And while I secretly hope for them to end up together in the next, I’m afraid that it might be doomed to fail. 

As for discoveries about her parents, you’ll just have to read this to find that out as I don’t want to give too much more away. While we find out about her father in this one we are still trying to figure out her mother and her connection to Sorrow-Fell with her stave. I have some theories about her mother, but will stay tight lipped about it until I read the next book to confirm or deny my theories.

A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess: A Book Review

Title: A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom On Fire #1)
Author: Jessica Cluess
Publisher: Random House
Publish Date: September 20th 2016
Pages: 416
I am Henrietta Howel. The first female sorcerer. The prophesied one. Or am I?

Henrietta Howel can burst into flames. When she is brought to London to train with Her Majesty's sorcerers, she meets her fellow sorcerer trainees, young men eager to test her powers and her heart. One will challenge her. One will fight for her. One will betray her. As Henrietta discovers the secrets hiding behind the glamour of sorcerer life, she begins to doubt that she's the true prophesied one. With battle looming, how much will she risk to save the city--and the one she loves?

A fast-paced, historical, fantasy book that had me pulled in from the very beginning. I was very intrigued with the synopsis of this when I first learned of this fantastic book and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it to read it. I really loved the whole aspect of this story and the characters. I don’t think there was a single character that I disliked aside from Palehook. I will admit that I’m not a fan of her beloved childhood friend, Rook. But I also think he is one of the aspects that pulled this story together quite nicely. The world building and the scenes of this are wonderfully written and you get a real sense of being there with everyone. Henrietta (Nettie) is definitely a strong female lead with stubbornness and passion throughout her veins. I can identify with her on those levels. I think we see her grow slightly throughout this book as she comes to terms with who she is and what is requested of her. Blackthorn and Magnus are very strong supporting characters and have won my affection at the beginning, even with Blackthorns pride and Magnus’s cockiness. I can’t wait to see where this story goes.

Otherworld by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller: An ARC Review

Title: Otherworld (Otherworld #1)
Author: Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Publish Date: October 31, 2017
Pages: 355
Source: Publisher for Review
Get Yours: Amazon | Book Depository

The company says Otherworld is amazing—like nothing you’ve ever seen before. They say it’s addictive—that you’ll want to stay forever. They promise Otherworld will make all your dreams come true.

Simon thought Otherworld was a game. Turns out he knew nothing. Otherworld is the next phase of reality. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted.

And it’s about to change humanity forever. Welcome to the Otherworld. No one could have seen it coming.

I had such high hopes for this book. I mean, the synopsis of this sounds amazing, and my daughter and I enjoyed the Nightmares! books. But this book just wasn’t my thing once I started reading. The main character is supposed to be what, 18 years old? He seems very immature, like he’s 15 or younger. He stays at home to play VR video games and steals his moms credit card to pay for the equipment he needs to play it with. He acts as if it’s ok to do this. And then his dad finds out and had a temper tantrum and beats the crap out of this $6000 equipment with his golf clubs as if to teach his son a lesson. Why do that? Why not show you are an adult and return it? After I got to this part in the book I just had to put it down and walk away. 

Now on the other hand, I did give this a 2 star rating and that’s because the concept of this alternate video game world was pretty amazing. Everything seemed very well thought out and it seemed, from what little I had read, very believable. Probably more so than the reality in the book.

I might try this one again later and update my review, but for now, this was a no go for me sadly.

 About Jason:

New York Times bestselling author Jason Segel used to have nightmares just like Charlie, and just like Charlie, he's learned that the things we're most afraid of are the things that can make us strong...if we're brave enough to face them. Jason likes acting, writing, making music, and hanging out with his friends. Sometimes he writes movies. Sometimes he writes songs for movies. Sometimes he stars in those movies and sings those songs. You might know him from The Muppets and Despicable Me. Your parents might know him from other stuff. Nightmares! is his first novel.

About Kirsten:

I write books.

Some of my books are what librarians call middle grade. (Kiki Strike, Nightmares!)

Some should be kept away from small children and people with weak stomachs. (How to Lead a Life of Crime, The Eternal Ones, Otherworld)

I write some books with Jason Segel.

I've written quite a few books on my own.

I'm an Aquarius.

My favorite food is cauliflower. (No joke.)

I will eat almost anything. And I'm weirdly proud of it.

I believe New York City is the most magical place on earth.

I love Dolly Parton and David Attenborough. Equally.

I cannot sing or play any musical instruments.

I'm obsessed with sewers and sanitation systems.

I once broke into a Mayan temple with my brother, Spike.

Spike is an alias. It's not his real name.

I also have a sister. She prefers to remain anonymous.

We have the same birthday.

Yes, that sucks.

I think that's all you need to know.

Shutter by Courtney Alameda: A Book Review

Title: Shutter (Shutter #1)
Author: Courtney Alameda
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Publish Date: February 3, 2015
Pages: 384
Buy It: Amazon | Book Depository

Horror has a new name: introducing Courtney Alameda.

Micheline Helsing is a tetrachromat—a girl who sees the auras of the undead in a prismatic spectrum. As one of the last descendants of the Van Helsing lineage, she has trained since childhood to destroy monsters both corporeal and spiritual: the corporeal undead go down by the bullet, the spiritual undead by the lens. With an analog SLR camera as her best weapon, Micheline exorcises ghosts by capturing their spiritual energy on film. She's aided by her crew: Oliver, a techno-whiz and the boy who developed her camera's technology; Jude, who can predict death; and Ryder, the boy Micheline has known and loved forever.

When a routine ghost hunt goes awry, Micheline and the boys are infected with a curse known as a soulchain. As the ghostly chains spread through their bodies, Micheline learns that if she doesn't exorcise her entity in seven days or less, she and her friends will die. Now pursued as a renegade agent by her monster-hunting father, Leonard Helsing, she must track and destroy an entity more powerful than anything she's faced before . . . or die trying.

Lock, stock, and lens, she’s in for one hell of a week.

I loved this book from start to finish. It had everything I could hope for in a ghost hunting book. A kickass heroin, a hot brooding Aussie, best friends and action. At moments I wanted to scream at the book and others I wanted to reach through and bitch slap her dad. I got pretty early on who we were hunting as in the entity, which wasn't a big deal. I'm glad the book played out the way it did. There was plenty of the edge of your seat nail biting moments to make up for it. I'm also really glad the ending played out like it did and it left it open in case the author decides to revisit the Helsings in the future.

A veteran bookseller and librarian, Courtney Alameda now spends her days writing thriller and horror novels for young people. Her debut novel, SHUTTER, was nominated for a Bram Stoker award and hailed as a "standout in the genre" by School Library Journal. Her forthcoming novel, PITCH DARK (Spring 2017), is a genre-blending science fiction/horror novel in the vein of Ridley Scott's 1979 film ALIEN.
Courtney holds a B.A. in English literature with an emphasis in creative writing. She is represented by the talented John M. Cusick of Folio Literary. A Northern California native, she now resides in Utah with her husband, a legion of books, and a tiny five pound cat with a giant personality.
