I'll be honest a bunch of the books I read would be banned, if not burned in many small towns *evil grin*
I keep remembering the part of the movie "Footloose", you all remember that part where they burned all those helpless sad :(
Can you imagine if they ever even read even one chapter of one of the Highlander books I so love. Lord help them if they read a Vampire book! I mean if you scroll down you'll see the Young Adult book "Blood".....Yep! That would Burn baby.
So, anyways enough of my want to get to the fun stuff!

Blood by K.J. Wignall

"I do not remember being bitten. I wish I did, for then I would know the creature who did this to me and I would have a purpose, to track him down and repay him for the poisoned gift he gave me." Back in the 13th Century, Will was destined to be Earl of Mercia.  He never lived to inherit his title, struck down by a strange illness and buried beneath the city walls.  But Will was not dead, and only now, seven lonely centuries later, does he begin to understand that there was a reason for all of this, that he has a destiny.  To find it though, he will need help, and as ever, he will need blood.

I went for a whole new book here.....Young Adult.
I know....But it's a Vampire Book....I just couldn't help myself!!!!!
That being said......
Believe it or not it was actually really GOOD....almost to the point I want to rate it!!!!
(But I won't because I rather you all like a book for the book and not a rating)

This book actually has a vampire who had to learn all about what kind of creature he had become ....meaning nobody is there babysitting him to insure his every need is taken care of. Then of top of that........HE DRINKS HUMAN BLOOD!!!
YEP!!!! He even kills a man!!! OMG....Can you believe that????
Now don't get me wrong, there's still a girl to romance and strangers to trust or not to trust with his "life", but this is by far the start of a great trilogy!!!!
The book ends on an amazing cliffhanger that will have the readers biting at the nail for the second book.
K.J. Wignall did an outstanding job with the writing and characters.
Well Done!!!

Elemental Reality Blog Tour

When Callie Pierce was ten, her mother disappeared without a trace. On the eve of her disappearance twelve years later, the Earth seemingly comes alive. The elements speak to Callie, and that's only the beginning. Everything she has ever known was a twisted fabrication to protect her. Now the truth is set free. Callie and her sister are more powerful than any Faerie ever born. Now they have to use their powers to save their mother and family from the evil hands of fate that threaten to tear them apart. Welcome to her elemental reality.
 Having read well over 100+ books so far this year, I can honestly say that this ranks among the top 5!!!
The writing was vivid and flowed from chapter to chapter with ease.The characters were FANTASTIC! (I want my own Oli!)
Totally Faeries like you've Never seen them ever before.
I mean the Chick can bend the elements for heaven sakes!!!
As you read you find yourself lost in Callie's life. The canter between her family and friends was just so realistic. It was just so AMAZING.
Then when you think you've got it all figured out and you know who's bad and who's good.....
You're at the end....Left with the Biggest cliffhanger to ever hit the faeries in a lifetime!
