{Review+Giveaway} Stay Tuned by Lauren Clark

{Review+Giveaway} Stay Tuned by Lauren Clark

Stay Tuned is such a refreshing read. I don’t read enough contemporary as it is, and when I do pick up contemporary it tends to be happy go lucky romantic comedies. I enjoy other sub-genres but they have to be done really well to hold my interest. Anything that deals with more serious issues and/or drama has to be well written and well thought out for me to enjoy it. Stayed Tuned is all of the above. It’s well written, well thought out, beleiveable and best of all utterly relatable. Melissa is such a great character. I instantly connected with her, all of her insecurities about not being good enough to be an anchor, all of her thoughts and annoyances. I thought she was really well fleshed out. She could really have been any woman dealing with juggling work, success (or the fear of not having it) friends, and problems at home. I think that anyone can relate to at least one of the struggles that Melissa goes through in… Read more »

Today I have the author of The Demon Side, Heaven Liegh Eldeen, with us for an interview. Be sure to check out my review of The Demon Side later today!  Thanks for joining us Heaven Liegh Eldeen. 🙂  1. describe The Demon Side in a tweet. (140 characters or less)  Oh that’s a hard one. Okay I can do this. go, go gadget super tweet!7 Arches, 2 Demons collide when a girl;Etta moves into the picture. An epic battle for good vs evil, love vs hate ensues w/ an unlikely hero   2. What is the hardest part about writing for you? The hardest pat of writing for me is definitely figuring out the names for my characters. I am horrible with names. I can be creative with anything but that. Which is why I don’t have a pen name. Heck, I named my son after his father just so i didn’t have to think of what to name him.  3. What is your favorite holiday and why? Without a doubt Halloween is my… Read more »

Today I have the author of Hushed, Kelley York, joining us on Book Briefs! Thank you so much for being here with us today Kelley. I love getting to know authors so I really enjoy 10 things you didn’t know about posts. And this one is even cooler because Kelley split it. Half about her and half about her book Hushed! Come back later this week for my review of Hushed!  ——————— Kelley York: I think 10 things people probably don’t know about me would bore some people, but I couldn’t think of 10 things no one knows about HUSHED… So I figured I’d do half and half! 5 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me: 1. I used to sell my artwork at anime conventions with friends. I wasn’t amazing, but I made some good extra cash doing it. 2. I lived in Indiana for three years and hated it. Then I moved back to California, where I grew up, and so much had changed that I don’t like… Read more »

{Review} Farsighted by Emlyn Chand (Blog Tour)

Farsighted by Emlyn Chand ebook, 218 pages Published October 24th 2011 by Blue Crown Press Source: Blog Tour Age group: YA Buy this Book:Amazon Summary (from Goodreads) Alex Kosmitoras’s life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead-broke and insanely overprotective, and to complicate matters even more, he’s blind. Just when he thinks he’ll never have a shot at a normal life, a new girl from India moves into town. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Yes, sophomore year might not be so bad after all. Unfortunately, Alex is in store for another new arrival—an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to “see” the future. Try as he may, Alex is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they begin to suggest that Simmi is in danger. With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and new friends who come bearing gifts of their own,… Read more »
