{Release Day Review} We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

{Release Day Review} We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

We Hunt the Flame is a young adult fantasy by Hafsah Faizal. I should point out that I have known Hafsah for several years now, ever since she was a book blogger and then a graphic designer in the book community. I have been a big fan of hers since day one, so when I heard she is writing a book, I knew I had to get a copy ASAP! And when I heard it was going to be an epic fantasy, I was even more excited. We Hunt the Flame is the first book in the Sands of Arawiya series, and I have to say…it did not disappoint. This book is a long one. It clocks in at almost 500 pages, and it sets up what is going to be a crazy awesome fantasy series. I am already salivating for the second book. In We Hunt the Flame we meet Zafira, who hides as a male hunter at the start of the novel. I will admit that it took… Read more »

{Guest Post+Giveaway} Final Year by MJ Moores

{Guest Post+Giveaway} Final Year by MJ Moores

Today I have the author of final year here to tell us 5 things we didn’t know about the main character, Jeremy. Top 5 things I didn’t know about Jeremy He has a step-father. As a plotter, I tend to know (for the most part) what’s going to happen (the major things anyway), so when Jeremy revealed that his mother and step-father were away in Arizona I was completely shocked. Then it clicked in my head – the whole reason he took to over-eating as a child was due to the fact that his father left. His mom overcompensated by equating love to food and showering it on Jeremy.   When Jeremy made the decision to lose weight and get healthy, I had no idea that in addition to joining a gym, he’d get into kick-boxing! His determination to push himself started with fitness and ebbed into his school life. His need to prove himself “worthy” fueled him, but the ache of losing someone he loved prevented him from making… Read more »
