Review, Giveaway & Interview! Spellcast by Barbara Ashford

Home > Giveaway > Spellcast by Barbara Ashford Genre: Adult, Paranormal RomanceParanormal Element: Surprise!Series: Spellcast #1Order Online:  Amazon.com Stalk the Author: WebReview copy provided by publisher PJ’s QUICKIE POV:Totally taken by surprise regarding SPELLCAST by Barbara Ashford! This book was sugary sweet, but deeply introspective all wrapped up in a musical that was laced with a little paranormal tid-bits here and there. I still don’t know why I accepted this review copy, I’m not into musical theater, I guess it was the cover, or the originality, or maybe even the glowing reviews – but I’m so glad I did take it, read it and subsequently highly enjoy it. Don’t judge, just read. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. REVIEW: On a whim Maggie Graham, unemployed, unattached and slightly frayed, ends up in Vermont looking for a bed and breakfast. Instead of finding a place to crash for the night she ends up auditioning for the Crossroads Theatre and being cast into minor rolls for three separate plays that will be performed that summer. Not know why she accepts the gig, Maggie ends up in a run down hotel, being paid $100 a week and now a part of a very strange cast of characters and an otherworldly staff – that casts people not by the character they could best play, but by the character that will teach them the most.

Review and Giveaway of Dark Parties by Sara Grant

Home > Giveaway > Review and Giveaway of Dark Parties by Sara Grant Genre: Young Adult, DystopianSciFi Element: Future, DystopianPre-Order Online:  Amazon.comStalk the Author: Web | TwitterLike Dark Parties on Facebook Review copy provided by publisher via ALA2011. PJ’s QUICKIE POV:Another trip into a dystopian landscape had me shivering at the thought of what could be. Sara Grant’s DARK PARTIES was spine tingling good with all the great anxiety ridden flavors that a psychological dystopian thriller should have. Grant’s writing had my brain churning as I was rooting for Neva to escape Homeland. DARK PARTIES was definitely a unique addition to the dystopian young adult genre and I can’t wait to read more from Grant. REVIEW:In Grant’s imagined future there is a place called Homeland. To escape toxins and war-caused disasters the remaining human population covered themselves with a Protectosphere, a giant shield that protects the citizens against harmful air and other nasties that exist outside. The Protectoshere is there for the citizens own good, because there is nothing left on the outside – according to the government. But, Neva’s grandmother told her otherwise…and then she disappeared. Since then Neva has kept a record of the Missing and each day it grows and so does Neva’s distrust of the Homeland ruling parties, one of which is her father. Small rebellions against the government is what Neva and her best...

Giveaway: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

hHome > Giveaway > Giveaway: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente  Twelve-year-old September lives in Omaha, and used to have an ordinary life, until her father went to war and her mother went to work. One day, September is met at her kitchen window by a Green Wind (taking the form of a gentleman in a green jacket), who invites her on an adventure, implying that her help is needed in Fairyland. The new Marquess is unpredictable and fickle, and also not much older than September. Only September can retrieve a talisman the Marquess wants from the enchanted woods, and if she doesn’t . . . then the Marquess will make life impossible for the inhabitants of Fairyland. September is already making new friends, including a book-loving Wyvern and a mysterious boy named Saturday. With exquisite illustrations by acclaimed artist Ana Juan, Fairyland lives up to the sensation it created when the author first posted it online. For readers of all ages who love the charm of Alice in Wonderland and the soul of The Golden Compass, here is a reading experience unto itself: unforgettable, and so very beautiful.
