Review of #58 A Class Apart (Class Heroes #1) by Stephen Henning

A very good day (or night) to all my readers! I am so happy to present "A Class Apart" to all of you out there. I'll tell you why in a while. *wink*

First, take a look at "A Class Apart". :D

Teenage twins James and Samantha Blake are caught up in a seemingly random terrorist bombing while on a school trip. Many of their friends are killed. When the twins wake up in hospital, their lives have changed forever.

The doctors are amazed at the speed with which James and Sam recover from their injuries and, when the twins begin to exhibit extraordinary powers, it is obvious that something incredible has happened.

As James and Sam attempt to overcome their fears and embrace their new abilities, a series of murders and disappearances start plaguing the hospital. The twins aren’t the only ones with special abilities and it becomes apparent that someone is coming for them.

Will James and Sam be able to survive the nightmare into which they have been plunged? Who, or what, is behind the murders at the hospital? And was that terrorist incident quite so random after all?


The cover is absolutely stunning. I love the design of it because it has a sci-fi look to it yet the colors scream "VINTAGE" or old school blue.

At my first glance of the synopsis, I find the story to be really interesting.
It was similar to other stories yet it was really different as I started reading the book.

The introduction of the book was pretty normal, high school bullying and a really really mean girl.

I felt this was kinda cliche at first but it turns out to be a really explosive story.

As you read, you feel yourself getting pulled into the story. 

The bomb scene was pretty cool and I liked how Stephen wrote it all.

The main characters of the story (James and Sam) are these really interesting bunch of people.

I loved how their relationship as siblings made me feel, "Oh, wow. This is GOOD." in a story.

I loved the way how they function together as a family and seeing their ties getting stronger as the story progressed was really unique.

The one main thing that I really really REALLY loved about the story is THE SUSPENSE.

The utterly, exhilarating suspense of who-what-did-it kinda thing.

I was constantly wondering who the heck was the bad guy, who the heck was helping them, what was actually real and what was actually a dream.

I was CONSTANTLY STRESSED with these questions running through my head and I LOVED IT.

This was a really interactive experience and I truly enjoyed this book.

Some of you might be really surprised with the ending (which I did) but some of you may not. (I guess you're a genius then... which is good!)

Stephen Henning is definitely on my favorite authors list.

Review of #57 The Coffee Shop by Lauren Hunter

Hello everyone! The internet has been a pain in the ass and there were some technical problems with everything! But now, let's rejoice and take a look at THE COFFEE SHOP!

If Derrick thought experiencing alternate timelines and glimpses into the future was strange, then he had no idea it was about to get a whole lot more strange.

When Derrick Sloane meets Annie Maddock and falls madly in love, he believes he's met the girl of his dreams. Only he then awakes to discover she is exactly that...nothing more than a dream. Disheartened, he goes to the first coffee shop he can find. There he meets Annie. She is at the same table, reading the same book, and he fast realizes his dream has shown him his own future. But when a misstep alters that perfect future he tries to fix it, every attempt only making it worse. 

Dreaming the future can be a nightmare when you see what's coming...and can't do anything to change it.


The Coffee Shop is an extremely engaging read. 

I really recommend all my blog readers to get this book because oh my... it is freaking good.

The storyline has a great flow, the characters are oh-so-romantic and I love the chemistry between Derrick and Annie.

Oh! If you love time travel, this book will be absolutely perfect for you.

In the beginning, it started out fantastic and I thought it was going to be like a normal romance novel. It was a really great start and I didn't expect the story to twist!

It was absolutely amazing how Lauren spun the story to a whole new level.
It could get really confusing at first with all the changing timelines but I love The Coffee Shop because there are different variations to the whole thing.

It was happy at one time, sad at the next, worse when Derrick changed a little of the time line and then it goes back to happy again.

It was like an emotional rollercoaster and I LOVED IT.

I really enjoyed The Coffee Shop journey and I'm re-reading it again!

Oh, thank you Lauren for the book! You're absolutely amazing!

Review of #56 Who is Audrey Wickersham by Sara Shrieves

I know everything that's happened is my fault. I try to tell myself that it's okay, I never wanted a normal life to begin with. But then I think about who's been hurt, and I wish that I could go back to the beginning. Back to when I was just a nobody wandering the halls of my high school, alone and unnoticed. Back to when I was completely oblivious to what killing somebody felt like.

You have to understand though, I had no choice.

My review: 

Hey guys and gals! I am SINCERELY SORRY for the silence. Especially to all my favourite authors who'd sent me emails! I am doing my best to get back to you!

Okay, back to the review!

Do you like the cover? I LOVED IT! It absolutely portrayed the character, Audrey, perfectly.

The starting part of the novel is really good. The story is slowly built up with perfect suspense and the momentum then carries out the whole story.

Overall, I love the starting part, the middle part and the last part but the transitions between them are not really enjoyable.

I've found myself loving and hating the main character, Audrey because she sounds like a brat sometimes but overall, the story is awesome.

I love her dad though because I can see that he was the constant rock in the whole story.
Not only that, he's like the perfect dad everyone wants. (Well, maybe not everyone. XD)

Overall, some of the characters in the story does not complement each but some do.

If you wanna read a story just for the heck of zombies (Though these are not the one that I like a.k.a. zombies like the Walking Dead) of zombie for that matter, this book is for you.

If you just wanna read a story just to go for an okay ride, this book will be perfect for you.

Virtual Book Blog Tour & Review: Fevered Souls by S.K. Falls

Hello everyone!
When I first saw the cover of Fevered Souls, it was absolutely beautiful that it totally caught my eye.
Check out...FEVERED SOULS!!!

Fevered Souls  by S.K. Falls 

Series: Fevered Souls, Volume 1

Publication date: August 5th, 2013 

Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance



Barns & Noble

After I left for college, I thought I’d never see Eden again. But I found myself headed back four years later, destitute and unable to find a job anywhere else. Still, I was adamant nothing would keep me there for long.

Then I met the intoxicating Dax Allard. Copper-colored eyes, skin that emanated an exceptional heat, and a host of strange talents… It wasn’t long before I was drunk on him.

But Dax’s past was darker than mine, teeming with ancient secrets. Falling for him could cost me my life.

I had two choices: walk away or deal with the perilous consequences.

It was no choice at all.

My review:  =D

The cover of Fevered Souls absolutely took my breath away. I really love it when cover of books catches the readers' attention. I know that we should not judge a book by its cover but some of us mere humans can't help it. 

Looking at the cover of Fevered Souls made me wanna read the book because it gave a first impression on the theme of the story.

Reading the first few pages of Fevered Souls will absolutely suck you in like a dangerous whirlpool. 

The atmosphere is dangerous and every page is breathtaking (because there's too much *coughs* sexual tension in the book ) 

Fevered Souls is a fast-paced novel with beautiful and of course, complicated hot, guy in the story.

I thought the characters in the book will be the same as any other books but it turned out to be a fresh new surprise.

There are times, of course, that i would roll my eyes at Dax (The main, hot-as-god character) because he treats Cara (Main Character) like brittle glass but I still swoon over his actions.

*squeals at Dax*

I love how the story flows together. Oh and there's demons in it.

I adore S.K. Falls!! I love ya!! She is definitely in my favourite author's list. :D

Anyway, I assure you, Fevered Souls is a book to get. You'll love the storyline (even though at some places, its kinda too fast), the suspense of dying-to-know what's going to happen and you'll fall in love with the characters.


Check out the author's bio!


A huge fan of spooky stuff and shoes, I enjoy alternately hitting up the outlet malls and historic graveyards in Charleston, SC where I live and imbibe coffee. 

My husband and two small children seem not to mind when I hastily scribble novel lines on stray limbs in the absence of notepads.

Since no writer’s biography is complete without mention of her menagerie of animals, you should know I have one dog that doubles as a footstool, a second that functions as a 
vacuum cleaner, and a cat that ensures I never forget that my hands are, first and foremost, for pouring cat food.

Here are some ways you can get to know S.K. Falls!

Okay then! Enjoy! :D
