#17 Follow Friday with book bloggers: Lost Girls Reviews
It's time for Follow Friday with book bloggers. This time for real! Last Friday the interview was interrupted by the tech issues but some of you received the sneak peek in our newsletter, didn't you? ;) But let's get back to our today's heroes! 
 
Today we gonna meet not one but TWO awesome readers behind the Lost Girls blog! Let's say hello to Shey and Bobbie, two bookish girls, who love reading when not and zip lining!
 
Follow Lost Girls Reviews on BookLikes: http://lostgirls.booklikes.com/
 
 
Your book blog on BookLikes is called Lost girls reviews. Tell us more about the girls and why are you lost? ;)
 
Shey: Bobbie and I have been friends for many years and we love to go on road trips together to cons and book festivals. Unfortunately, we both have a terrible sense of direction. We inevitably end up getting lost, so we decided, since we are always getting lost whether in books or simply getting to our destination, Lost Girls is kind of perfect for us. 
 
 
When have you experienced the book love for the first time?
 
Shey: When I was very young I fell in love with Nancy Drew books. I read every one I could get my greedy little hands on. From there my love for books continued to grow. Libraries were my favorite place in the world. I could spend hours reveling in all the wonderful books.
 
Bobbie: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It had everything my young heart desired. Talking animals, magic, an epic battle between good and evil, and extraordinary adventures. 
 
What made you start book blogging? 
 
It was something that we wanted to do for a long time. We love to share and discuss the latest books we are devouring, and also wanted a way to keep track of our favorites. We love reading reviews and recommendations from fellow book lovers who introduce us to books we may never have discovered otherwise. Also, we've met some wonderful authors and reviewed their ARCs. It is always such a thrill to walk into a book store and see a finished copy of a book we reviewed and loved months ago finally gracing the shelves in all their glory.
 
You’re adventurous girls, aren’t you? Tell us more about your escapades. 
 
We love adventure! Anything that gets our hearts pounding. We have ziplined over alligators pits, done some cave spelunking, parasailing, free diving some gorgeous caves here in Florida (which we will be blogging about in the coming months). We are always up for adventure and ready to take things to the next level. We attempted hang gliding several times, sadly the weather prevented us from ever getting up there. We were very disappointed, but we don't give up easily. It's still high on our list of adventures. We have some exciting adventures planned for this winter.
 
 
Are you adventurous in book picking or do you stick to your favorite genres?
 
Shey: I'm adventurous. I tend to read a lot of YA, but if someone recommends a good mystery, some historical fiction, fantasy, etc I will jump on it. I can chat books with just about every book lover and find something in common. 
 
Bobbie: Its not often that I venture away from my favorite genres but occasionally I will come across a book that piques my interest even though it's not one I would normally read. 
 
You’re zip lines lovers. How did that start?
 
Bobbie: Our second year attending San Diego Comic Con there was a Batman zipline. You could soar through Gotham city just like the caped crusader himself! We had talked about trying ziplining before and this was the perfect opportunity to try it out. It was really fun and quite a rush!
 
Shey: We haven't met a zipline we didn't like. After our experience in California we went in search of more ziplines and found all kinds of fun ways to zip. We've zipped superman style, between mountains in Canada, but our favorite so far is the roller coaster zipline. What a thrill! Our ultimate goal is to zip upside down. It's going to happen!
 
What are you three favorite book covers?
 
 
 
Replica - Lauren OliverThe Shadow Queen - C. J. RedwineWintersong - S. Jae-Jones
 
How does you book review process look like? 
 
Bobbie: I try and write my review right after finishing the book and while everything is fresh in my mind. I give a summary of the book and then my thoughts on it.  
 
Shey:  I take notes as I'm reading to remind myself of certain quotes that I love, or points that I want to discuss in my review. Once I finish the book I have to have a nice quiet space where I can be with my thoughts as I write. 
 
Which books are you most excited recommending to your followers this fall/winter?
 
Shey: Our TBR pile is huge! There are so many exciting books that just came out. I absolutely love Wonder Woman: Warbringer.  Leigh Bardugo is such an amazing writer. She will always be at the top of my list of recommendations. I'm super excited about my current read, Renegades by Marissa Meyer.
 
Wonder Woman: Warbringer (DC Icons Series) - Leigh BardugoRenegades - Marissa Meyer
 
 
One Dark Throne - Kendare BlakeSilence Fallen - Patricia Briggs

 

What's your reading spot? We'd love to see the photos :)
 
Our favorite reading spots have to be at home in our beds. Big fluffy pillows, warm cup of tea, a great book. What more can one ask for?
 
 
Three titles for the fans of adventures? 
 
 
The Hobbit - J.R.R. TolkienSnow Like Ashes - Sara RaaschThe Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis
 
What’s your favorite quote? 
 
Bobbie: 

art via Etsy

Do not go gentle into that goodnight

Rage, rage against the dying of the light - Ally Condie, Matched 

 

 

"The stories we love best live in us forever" - JK Rowling
 
Shey:
“Ryle Hira: Life is what it is” Elizabeth Haydon, Rhapsody
 
 
If you could meet one literary character, who would it be?
 
Shey: One of my favorite books (and movies) growing up was Anne of Green Gables. I would love to chat with, or mostly listen to, Anne Shirley while she showed me all her favorite spots. She is such a big part of my childhood. Bobbie and I recently had the immense pleasure of meeting and receiving great big hugs from the absolutely amazing, Meagan Follows who, of course, played Anne on the series way back when, and to us that was almost like meeting Anne herself. A memory we will forever cherish. 
 
Bobbie: Mercy Thompson, my favorite character. She's a badass shapeshifter that can change into a coyote form. She has a knack for finding trouble, and trouble sometimes goes looking for her. Her husband is a werewolf, her friend is a vampire, and her boss is an ancient fae. There's never a dull moment with her.
 
A paper book or an e-book? 
 
Bobbie: I don't really have a preference. I like the convenience of my Kindle. I can store and easily access thousands of books. But there's just something about that new book smell and the way it feels in your hand.
 
Shey: Both. I prefer the feel and glorious smell of real books, but I tend to do a lot of reading on my kindle as well. When I get ARCs I normally receive them through my kindle and that's where I first read them. Later I will purchase the paper book, especially when I fall in love with the cover art. I'm easy to please.
 
Shelfie time! Please share your home library photos :)
 
Thank you so much for including us in your series!
 
Thank you!

But instead of sending it to Jake, she manages to forward the clip to her boss—who buys every gory second. When mass panic ensues, Leah learns the video is more than a staged act… The government is calling the virus AM13. As the outbreak spreads,citizens are forced to stay indoors while they assess the gravity of the illness. Most people are quarantined in their homes, but Leah,Jake, and Leah’s best friend Michelle are some of the unlucky few who are stuck at work when the Lockdown occurs. That’s where she first encounters one of the infected… Aside from a contaminated woman devouring one of her co-workers, Leah has another problem. Does she do as she’s ordered and stay at work? Or should she disobey government orders and break free to reunite with her family? She can’t go it alone—after all, Leah has none of the skills needed to survive—but with Michelle and Jake by her side, not even a contagious virus and a sea of the dead can keep her from… Breakingout of the Lockdown…

Ethan Watton has managed to survive this long, even with OCD making everyday more hellish than it already is… Ethan’s obsessive-compulsive disorder dramatically affected his life before the infection began. Now he’s desperate to get as far away from the zombie virus as humanly possible. Isolated and afraid, Ethan thinks there is no way in hell he will survive the epidemic.   Alyssa Turner has spent her teenage years prepping for the undead to challenge her zombie killing skills… Alyssa knows with absolute certainty that she will survive the AM13 virus.She’s read all the books, watched all the films, and done all the research. She’s strong, tough, and a self-proclaimed badass. Any group would be lucky to fight alongside her…until the unthinkable makes her doubt every skill she’s acquired. Dr.Jones is a scientist who doesn’t understand why he was selected to produce a cure… Surely there are survivors more experienced in virology than he is. And what will happen to him—and the rest of the species—if he fails? Is the fate of the human race really resting on his shoulders? Or are there others working toward the same goal? With the zombies multiplying and survivors struggling to make it to the sanctuary, Ethan, Alyssa, and Dr. Jones fight to fulfill their destinies. If they fail, their fate is sealed, and they will join the millions of others who have been… Forgotten.

Happy Reading :)


He’s been locked away his entire life. He dreams of freedom. The only way he can accomplish his goals is by breaking free of the chains tying him to a dark past and gloomy existence. But there’s one catch. He’s not human. And he’s never set foot outside his jail.   Devoted to saving his peers as well as his own life, he sets out to find the one person that can help him achieve his objectives. He knows where she will be and what she will look like, but what he doesn’t anticipate is the fact he finds himself caring for the girl whose life he’s put at risk, more and more each day.   He has no name. He has only known hatred and violence before her. However, she will teach him to have faith in humanity, even if she can’t trust him. Together they will embark on a journey to bring down a corrupt system responsible for the loss of many innocent lives. But when he finds his feelings compromised, can he still move on knowing that doing so will put an end to the life she once knew? How far is he willing to go to be free?

She coerces my lips open with her tongue. I oblige, shutting my eyes to revel in the barrage of sentiments borne of her actions. For once, I allow myself the luxury of being consumed by an emotion I can hardly keep under wraps. A craving unlike any I’ve ever felt before rises and quickly becomes my biggest enemy. I’m overwhelmed with the need to caress Kristina—to lure her in and keep her tightly clutched against my chest. I want so much more than to sit still as her tongue invades my mouth, gently stroking my own. My body betrays me in a very physical way. In my confusion, I’m apprehensive as to how to proceed. Where do I go from here? I wrestle with my desire to explore her body, and her specific requirements to keep my appendages where they won’t come in contact with any part of her anatomy. Not easy to do with our mouths joined, and Kristina so painfully close to me.

Kristy Centeno is the author of the Secrets of the Moon saga and Keeper Witches series. She has always had a passion for books and after years of being an avid reader, she decided to transform her desire to write into a reality and thus, her first novel was born. When she’s not busy taking care of her five children or holding down the fort, she finds time to sit and do what she loves the most: writing.

This tight end is at the top of his game.

 

He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His—ahem—stats are perfect. But I can’t fall for him. He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem.

Wells Lemiere knew the moment he saw Matty Haverbrooke, he had to have him. Matty was quiet, he was talented, he was beautiful, and Wells couldn’t stay away. As the youngest and most talented son of the NHL Commissioner, Matty had found the burden of family expectations almost too heavy to carry on even his broad shoulders. He had no intention of getting involved in a relationship with Wells. But the heart he’d given up for dead had other ideas. Their affair was intense and overwhelming, but when Matty couldn’t bring himself to come out and admit he wanted a public future with the man he loved, Wells had no choice but to honor his vow to live openly…and leave Matty behind. But then he learns Wells is marrying another, and Matty knows he can't let that happen. Can he throw down his gloves and embrace his future with both hands? Or will he pull the door to his closet shut once more?

Matty loves Wells as much or more than he loves hockey. For a hockey player, that is enough in itself. Until family creates a divide and he must choose.

Wells wants more with Matty than he can have, apparently. He wants it all. With Matty running scared from outside interference, Wells wonders will he ever get his happily ever after?

This is such a great story. Well written and going at a great pace. The angst is real, the heat is super smoking hot, and the feelings jump off the page and grabbed me. I cannot wait to hear more about these guys in upcoming books!

About the Author:

 

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
 
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
 
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
 
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
 
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
 
… and did I mention I love hockey?
