Been gone for a while but I'm back :)


I can't believe it's been almost 2 years since I have been on this blog. I had left do to a few things going on in my life at the time, I didn't mean to be gone for so long but I guess life just got in the way.

Reading is still my favorite thing to do (and probably always will be.) I cannot wait to start reviewing novels again. I'm getting excited just thinking about it :).

Well I guess I'll end this post here.

Look out for my 1st review in 2 years!!!! So Exciting!!!

Feature & Follow Friday #3

*I nervously walk up the steps, praying I don't slip. I make my way across the stage smiling brightly as I accept my Featured blogger award and turn toward the crowd ---* Wow wish that daydream could have lasted a little longer :)

But really I just wanted to say how excited and thankful to be chosen as this weeks Featured Blogger. I've been blogging for a year now but last year I was so shy and didn't really communicate much. This year I want to be more outgoing and interact with more bloggers and have fun with all the book lovers out there.

Alison and Parajunkee have made that possible for all of us through the Feature & Follow Fridays and i just wanted to take this time to say Thank you to them and all of you whom have stopped by my blog during any of the FF's I have participated in :) Now on to this weeks question.................


What books are you looking forward to reading in 2014? 

I have been waiting patiently or not so patiently ;) for a few books to come out this year. 

1)Awakened by Nina Lane- This is the third book in a trilogy and it came out the beginning of this Year. Of course i bought it the day it came out and I absolutely loved it just like I did the other 2 .

2) Up from the Grave (Night Huntress #7) by Jeaniene Frost- I pre ordered this book and i am anxiously waiting for it to come out on January 28th. If you like paranormal books & vampires ..You will absolutely love this series. I listen to them on audiobooks and the narrator is Amazing! 

3)Honesty (Mark of Nexus 2.5) by Carrie Butler- If you have read the first 2 books in The Mark of Nexus Series you already know how great they are. If you haven't ..What are you waiting for? Honesty is a Novella about Cole- The Bad boy you can't help but Love. I cannot wait :)

I'm sure there are a few other books I've been waiting on but those are the first 3 that popped into my head. and just look at the covers.

Every time Hazel Bell goes on a date, she returns home unhappy and disenchanted about love. At least her best friend Adrian Williams is always there for her, even more so now that they're roommates. After both of them have a bad night out, they decide to just relax and forget the world for awhile. It's been a long time since they've been alone together.

Feature & Follow Friday #2

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you.

Question of the Week: Who is your blogger BFF? Tell us a little bit about him or her? If not tell us why you need or don’t need a blogger BFF.

Answer: I don't have a blogger bff yet but i would love one. I love meeting and talking to new people but having a blogger bff would be Amazing :). I'm on the shy side in real life and online so sometimes it's hard for me to make friends because I'm not as outgoing as some but the Feature & Follow Friday has been great with gaining new followers now it's time to turn some of those followers into friendships and hopefully meet my blogger bff in the process. 

Are you looking for a blogger bff ..send me you bff application and i'll be happy to fill it out..You never know we may be a match :).

*Cover Reveal* Honesty by Carrie Butler

Honesty (Mark of Nexus #2)

Category: New Adult  Genre: Urban Fantasy
Book Description:
Note: This title is best enjoyed after Strength (Mark of Nexus #1) and Courage (Mark of Nexus #2).

Cole Blake is more than just a roguish ladies’ man. He’s also a dedicated worker—so dedicated, in fact, that he’s willing to blackmail his boss with a falsified sex tape in order to keep his job. And his proactive efforts don’t end there. After hours, he uses his Dynari abilities to moonlight as a vigilante, keeping his neighborhood safe from drunks, dealers, and would-be thieves. Until a mistake stops him dead in his super-accelerated tracks. Now burdened with the closest thing he’s ever had to a conscience, Cole struggles to justify his once-reckless actions. It’d be all too easy to give in to his darker impulses, especially with ERA making dangerous advances toward their goal of revolution, but embracing that hatred could jeopardize the few relationships he actually cares about—including his pursuit of the saintly Rachel Ranford. No, in order to keep everyone safe, he’ll have to come clean about his warring compulsions and ask for help... before his dark side takes over.

My Review: 5 out of 5 Stars

Even though I already reviewed both books on my other blog but I wanted to write one on the series so far on this blog. When I first finished Strength the first book in the Mark of Nexus Series I immediately wanted to start the book all over again. Carrie Butler's writing was Amazing- the characters came to life and I could hear their voices in my head as I read. Honestly you forget your reading and you're sucked into their world. It was a great story and she was the first author I ever wrote to tell her how much I enjoyed the book.

 I waited patiently for Courage the second book in the series to come out ..okay okay you got me I waited not so patiently ;) and was thrilled to be able to participate in the blog tour and receive an arc.

Courage picks up where Strength left off and let me tell you I was not disappointed. For those that know me I love a book that has Action+Romance and Courage has just that. 

The Mark of Nexus is not your normal Paranormal Love story. Carrie Butler brings something new and exciting to the table and when you pick up this series you know you're about to read a story you've never read before. 

So make sure you get your hands on this Amazing Series and be ready to escape from reality for a little while and slip into a world with action, heartbreak, love and happiness.The Links are posted above!

Coming Soon:      Honesty (Mark of Nexus #2.5) - Coming 2014
·                                                          Loyalty (Mark of Nexus #3) - Coming 2014

About the Author:

Carrie Butler daydreamed her way through college—until they thrust a marketing degree into her hands, slapped a summa cum laude seal on the corner, and booted her out into a less-than-stellar job market. Instead of panicking at the prospect of unemployment, she used her Midwestern logic to steer into the skid and point her life in the direction she really wanted to go: writing out those daydreams.

Her passion for New Adult fiction led her to co-found NA Alley—one of the first websites dedicated to the category. She is the author of Strength (Mark of Nexus #1) and Courage (Mark of Nexus #2).
