Waking up in a hospital after a horrendous car accident that destroys her career as a concert pianist, the last person Elise McKinney expects to see is Quinn Bradford, former child pianist prodigy and current keyboardist for the rock band Shaken Dirty.  The last time she saw him was 10 years ago when he left her without a word.

La Revenant’s review of Raw by Belle Aurora

RawLa Revenant’s Review of

Raw

by Bella Aurora

Raw and gritty, and dirty as hell. And it’s not often you see your fantasies come to life. This fantasy though? It’s scaring the shit out of me. I wonder if I’ll wake up soon to find this was all a dream.
Aurora, Belle (2014-01-13). RAW (p. 61). Kindle Edition.
Gritty, rough, bleak, and dark all describe Raw. This story was twisted and rough, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It wasn’t anywhere close to perfect and that was okay. I did not like everything about this story but I liked it enough to finish it and the ending did not disappoint. Something you should know about me, I like endings that are more real and less happily ever after, just saying.

The Baron of Books review of the movie Ender’s Game

the movie

Ender’s Game

For those of you who don’t know, (and that, I imagine is a good number. Unless you’re spying on me, in which case . . .bravo, my ninja seals will be speaking with you shortly).

*ahem*

I’m an aspiring author.  Generally means I’m one of those schlubs who works on various writing projects for a good long while and never really gets any of them quite to publishing stage.   Time will tell if I stay a schlub or actually get something out onto the market.  But . . the point of me telling you this is because I want to mention a fact right off the bat.  As one of my biggest inspirations, Orson Scott Card’s “Ender” and “Bean” series are right up there with Terry Pratchett’s writing.  If I can end up writing something with half the depth of one of the Ender characters, or the Discworld, I will be . . . if not content, at least partially satisfied.

The Book Tart Episode 59 ~ Karen Booth’s Back Forever

Review of Back Forever

Back Forever is a beautiful story. I love seeing what happens after the fairytale come true. This novel is the continuation of Chris and Claire’s romance that began in Bring Me Back and it is full of life, loss, happy, sad and love, Twu wuv. (I couldn’t help it 😛 ) But yes, true love. Their relationship matures and grows and I loved every minute of the journey. READ Karen Booth. 😀

Google Giggle Hangout with Karen Booth!

 I loved Karen Booth’s novel Bring Me Back, it’s actually one of my favorite books from last year! Click HERE for my review. Soooo when I found out she was continuing the story of Chris and Claire I was ecstatic! Back Forever didn’t disappoint me. I fell right back into their world and was swept along for the ride. I love seeing the next chapter of their romance and how they build their life together after the “I love yous”.

I hope you enjoy my spazz out and Karen’s answers to my ramblings. (She’s a darling!) Oh! I love these characters and I’m giving you a chance to meet them too. Make sure you enter my contest at the bottom of the post. *waves down*
