Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.
The Perfect Tear - Connie Lansberg
  Blog Tour Schedule:
http://yaboundbooktours.blogspot.com/2017/01/blog-tour-sign-up-perfect-tear-by.html *** The Perfect Tearby Connie LansbergGenre: YA FantasyRelease Date: November 11th 2015
Summary from Goodreads:
Eleanor, a timid orphan, is a Singer. Her songs keep nature in balance, but when they are stolen from her the grey mist descends, and her world fails to thrive. This timid orphan is forced into a course of action she never asked for, nor envisioned.Eleanor grapples with crippling self-doubt and fear until she learns these are far more perilous than the physical dangers she faces moment to moment on her terrifying, puzzling and often funny search for The Perfect Tear, a crystal which contains the Third Vibration and able to heal the land. She is horrified to discover that she must defeat an inter-dimensional being or become his accomplice in the destruction of she loves.But Eleanor is no savior, just a simple girl with strong instincts and she must learn to trust them. Just like the notes of a song must form connections to create a melody, Eleanor must discover the connections needed to create the harmony required to truly save her world.
My Review
I really loved the character of Eleanor she was a very interesting character. I loved that we got to know her at a very young age, and into part of her teenage years. I also really liked her best friend Audrey. Other characters I really liked were Edward whom is Eleanor's love interest and is a prince. I liked John who likes Audrey, and his also Edwards best friend. Then there are other people such as Lerion, who is I guess you can say is the bad guy in this book. Another character I should really mention is Tsera who Lerion is trying to take over her roll or job, I guess you can say. She also hid the object that Lerion is trying to find. Of course my favorite character has to be most definitely Bella, she's an animal but I am not going to tell you what type of animal that it is. So you'll have to read it to find out. The story was a lot of fun to read, and I really enjoyed it. I thought the ending tied up things pretty well, but leaves more stuff to explore in other books as well.
 
Teaser
Eleanor, a timid orphan with an extraordinary musical gift has just turned sixteen. She has no clue to her real purpose, but she refuses to become a subservient old maid, like the miserable nuns she grew up with. Eleanor knows Mother Superior has no intention of letting her leave–her songs are the only thing keeping the grey mist at bay. Her best friend Audrey begs her to run away with her but where would they go? The world outside the Abbey is barren and dangerous. Eleanor finally decides to take her chances and in the act of running away, meets her destiny. The girls find themselves in a strange land full of unknown dangers where they are met by an ethereal creature, Tsera, who gives Eleanor a choice. Go home to Edward, the boy she loves, never to sing again and wait until her world dies or, risk everything to find The Perfect Tear, a crystal that contains the Third Vibration and the only thing that will stop the destruction of her world.

Book Trailer: About the Author Connie Lansberg is a singer/songwriter and now author based in Melbourne Australia. She's had her original songs placed in some of Australia's best loved TV shows that play around the world and The Connie Lansberg Quartet is a fixture in the Melbourne jazz scene. Her most recent original musical project is Tsera’s Gift, written especially for The Perfect Tear and she performs these songs throughout Melbourne. This is Connie's first novel and the movie is coming. The record will be out soon.Connie has received several grants from the Victoria Council of the Arts for the development of mobile phone games that she created.Connie joined the Melbourne Writers Group in 2010 to work on ideas and scripts and during this time the idea for The Perfect Tear began to develop and take shape. She continued her education by taking scriptwriting classes at the Australian Film and Television School in Melbourne. She has two more stories to complete The Perfect Tear Trilogy and is hoping to have the second book finished in 2017"The first thing anybody tells you about this business is to say what makes you unique and different, but I couldn't and the very idea of it never sat well with me and after much deliberation, I finally realized why.Because, I'm not unique or different-I'm exactly like you and I love that. We each have a unique filter through which we interpret the world, and with this filter in place, I write stories and songs and you might find them surprising or intriguing or confronting, you may relate or you may not. They may make you laugh and sometimes, even cry.You may or may not understand what I'm trying to say and you may not understand me, however, rest assured, once we get past the filters, at our core, we are wonderfully and beautifully, exactly the same."

Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.
Birthright: The Legacy Series: Book One - Jessica Ruddick
  Blog Tour Schedule: http://yaboundbooktours.blogspot.com/2017/01/blog-tour-sign-up-birthright-by-jessica.html Birthrightby Jessica RuddickGenre: YA SupernaturalRelease Date: March 20th 2017 Summary from Goodreads: How do you live with yourself when you decide who dies?Ava Parks would have killed for an iPod for her sixteenth birthday. Anything would have been better than coming into her birthright of being a seeker for the Grim Reaper, an arrangement made by her fallen angel ancestor in exchange for his re-admittance to heaven. And she isn’t just any seeker—she finds souls that have the potential for becoming angels and sentences them to death. A year and two souls into her role as a seeker with her conscience overflowing with guilt, Ava comes up with a plan to thwart the system. When it goes awry, she is forced to submit the name of a classmate, Cole Fowler, an ornery, rough around the edges guy who always seems to come to her rescue, whether she likes it or not. Her feelings for Cole prompt her to intervene, and she saves him from death, upsetting the Grim Reaper’s agenda. While Ava schemes to find a way to save Cole, she learns he has some secrets of his own. She lets him believe he is protecting her, and not the other way around, until a final showdown with the Grim Reaper forces Ava to make choices Cole may never forgive.
My Review
This book was just an okay book for me, I liked parts of the story and other parts not so much. I loved Cole but Ava was just okay to me, I didn't hate her but she wasn't my favorite heroine from books I have read before. I really wish she had more of a backbone throughout this story. I did feel bad for her in regards to the birthright that she doesn't want any part of. I didn't like that towards the end of the book she did something that Cole doesn't know about, I understand why she did what she did but Cole should know what she did, so he isn't so blindsided. I think the reason I didn't love the book that much is because I had trouble getting into the book until past the half way through mark. Plus I really didn't care for the characters besides Cole all that much, his the only one that makes me what to continue to read the next book to see what happens to him next. So I would definitely continue this series due to Cole. I am happy I volunteered to be part of the blog tour for this book. And my opinion is my very own and no one else's.

Bound by Their Secret Passion (The Scandalous Summerfields) - Diane Gaston

Probably the weakest of the series, I had a lot of hope for the resolution of the story but the Lorene had to jump through so many hoops after having had a horrible time already. Their mother was just too much.  If it was me I'd probably be found in a home for the deranged.  Why she put up with it all and didn't just disappear to Bath for the waters and her nerves I'll never know.

Review: "Shadow Bound" by Garrett Leigh
Shadow Bound - Garrett Leigh

"Luca leaned back into Dash's embrace, feeling the rays of the 

dawning sun bond with the heat of Dash's vibrant form. He tilted his neck to feel the warmth of Dash's lips on his crystalline skin. "Why?"

"Because you have found your soul. Now come with me and let me show you the world."

 

After being attacked by werewolves (off-page), a wounded vampire gets healed by a cat shifter's jizz (!), and they bond. That's it. That was the plot.

 

This felt more like a rough draft for a full novel rather than a short story that can hold its own. The world building was superficial and a lot of things were being left unexplained.

 

 

If this would be a freebie at least, then it would have made for a nice read for a rainy Sunday afternoon. But certainly not for $1.05 (Amazon price at the time of this review).

 

Cannot recommend.
