Fall is Here!

Fall is Here!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. It feels like everything slows down and I can breathe again (even though I’m just as busy as ever!).

It’s also when I like to take some time to just relax and read. I’ll admit, I don’t spend much time sitting in a comfortable chair with a good book. I usually listen to audiobooks while I fold the laundry or clean the house. I love that I get the opportunity to “read” while I take care of necessary tasks, but I would like more time to unwind.

So, my fall resolution (don’t judge, it’s a thing) is to spend more time just sitting and reading.

With my resolution in mind, I thought I’d share some of the books I’m looking forward to reading this fall.

Dying Day (Dying for a Living Book 7) by Kory M. Shrum

This is the seventh and final book in Shrum’s Dying for a Living series. I love this series! It’s unique, complex, and full of interesting characters. I’m sad it’s ending, but I can’t wait to see what happens in this final book!

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

It has been years since Green released a new book, and I have missed him. My favorite book of his (and one of my favorite books ever) is The Fault in Our Stars. It’s a beautifully written, heartbreaking novel, and I loved it. I can’t wait to get my hands on Turtles All the Way Down.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling and Jim Kay

I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan, so this one is a must-have for me. Prisoner of Azkaban is the third book in the series, and it is my favorite. I love the illustrations in the first two books, and I’m excited to see what Jim Kay brings to this story!

What are you looking forward to reading this fall?

HAPPY RELEASE DAY: Death Wish by Angela Roquet

I’m excited to let you know that Death Wish, the fifth book in Angela Roquet’s Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. series comes out today! I’ve already started reading it.

I love this series.

Angela has great characters and I love the world she has built. I started in the middle of the series and I’ve been hooked ever since. If you’re looking for something fresh and interesting, I recommend the Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. series. The first book in the series is called Graveyard Shift and it’s available for FREE so check it out.

Badass and the Beast: Day 3

BadassTourBannerMay2015

 

Welcome to my blog and day three of the blog tour!

If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading the previous blog posts on this tour, be sure to check them out.

Day 1: Kory M. Shrum

Day 2: Angela Roquet

This is my first expedition into the wonderful world of publishing and I’m thrilled that my debut is in support of a great cause like the Animal Welfare Institute.

My story was written specifically for the anthology. It isn’t part of a larger work (yet), it’s just a story I wanted to tell. The star of the story is an American Mastiff named Willa who is the companion and protector of the main character, Doe. I have wanted an American Mastiff for quite some time, and I have spent countless hours reading about them (and staring at pictures of them). They are smart, loyal, and gentle, but they can be fiercely protective if their family is threatened. When I thought of a companion for Doe, it didn’t take me long to settle on this breed of dog. Willa exhibits all of those characteristics and even adds a little comic relief in some tense scenes.

I really hope you enjoy the story.

Remember, the sales from the book benefit the Animal Welfare Institute. Don’t forget to get your copy of Badass and the Beast.

Thanks for visiting!

The tour continues with Monica La Porta. Stop by her blog and say hi.
