"Flawless 4" by Jade Jones

 

My Thoughts....

 

All that is left to say is wow! What a read with so much drama with all of the interesting characters whether it was with Shayla, Starr, Romeo, Desmond, Eviva, Dro, Ashley, Kim, Tyree and even Quay?  Be ready for quite a roller coaster ride because this author really gives the reader quite a well written journey that is still not completely finished yet as we are left once again in a cliffhanger wondering who is still alive.

"12 Day at Bleakly Manor" by Michelle Griep

My Thoughts.....

This was quite a interesting story of Christian historical romance and mystery during 1850's holidays in England. I liked how this author brings to the readers some really intriguing characters during the '12 Days at Bleakly Manor' that had a particular reason for being at this location. Be ready for a fast paced, fun, quirky read with a Gothic and mysterious setting with some great descriptions given and even a little bite of danger.

What happens when Clara Chapman who was once from a well to do family, rejected by her father and later by her fiancé now found to be poor living with her Aunt Deborha receives a cyptic invitation?

"The Twelve Days of Christmas
As never's been reveled
Your presence, Miss Chapman,
Is respectfully hearld.
Bleakly Manor's the place
And after twelve nights
Five hundred pounds
Will be yours by rights."

Who was Benjamin Lane who had been in prison for stealing and is to be deportation to a labor camp from another country. Now what on earth does he have to do with all or this? Well, as the reader continues to read we find that Benjamin believes he was been betrayed by someone he once had loved and that he was also innocent of all of this mess he had been accused of. What will happen when he receives the same invitation to Bleakly Manor that 10 others had received? Now, what will Ben be promised?

Will Clara and Ben [the two main characters] who had some huge misunderstandings be able to work through it all out just be able to come to a better understanding of it all?

I enjoyed how this author was able to bring in the Christian elements [with trust and faith elements] in this very realistic story that will keep you turning the pages to see what was coming next in this story that was of 'second chances and choosing between revenge ad forgiveness.' I did notice that the '12 day of Bleakly Manor 'started on December 24th and ending January 5, 1851 which I thought was somewhat strange but as I was reading I get this idea from the author was done for a particular reason.

This was quite a interesting story after all is said and done. To find all of the answers to the above questions and so much more you will have to pick up this good read that has so many twist to see it's a good story of second chances and redeemed love. This is definitely one of those stories that will keep one guessing until the very end! Even though this novel is around Christmas holiday, I found that it's the kind of read that one can be read at any time of the year.

"The Good Girl" by Deep

 

My Thoughts.....

 

This author has given us once again another good 'Kya Chronicle' reads. Iiked how this main character Kya seems to grow up and be able to except what is right there in front of her.  It was quite interesting seeing Kya and Myles beginning to have true feelings for each other.  I was especially glad to see her leave that Ray guy alone.  Surely now Kya was not longer a 'Lil Girl' that she had once been now more mature, graduated, working woman and having Myles in her life definitely brought her many 'adventurous and sensual' moments that were simply off the chart.  Is Kya now beginning how important it is to have someone to care for her?  Well, we may not get a HEAFN but one can hope it is in the work for Kya.

Boyfriend Dungeon - Kind of a cross between a dungeon crawler and a Soul Eater dating sim?

It won't be out until 2019 (!), but apparently Boyfriend Dungeon is supposed to be a cross between a dungeon crawler and a dating sim. You can defeat enemies and date your weapon.

 

I've only read a couple articles on it, and none of them have mentioned Soul Eater, but they really should. It's a series (manga, anime) set in a world where two or more people (mostly pairs) team up to collect the souls of evil humans and witches. At least one person in each team has the ability to transform into a weapon that another person in the team uses. The main characters are a girl and her scythe partner.

 

It'll be interesting to see how Boyfriend Dungeon works out. It'd be nice if it were a little further along and actually had a release date.

Mollie Jo Joseph: Accepting The Unexpected Book review by Eve's Bookish World
Accepting the Unexpected - Mollie Jo Joseph

What should I say about this book?! It is a little diamond! If I had to use some words for it, these would be: fresh, funny, glamorous, stylish, adorable but even serious as it has to do with a really important issue. Depression.

Let's take it from the start. I love chick lit. You know I do, I told you that at my last post. I love the humorous ways it deals with some problems and issues, either these are relationships, or anything more serious. This one has to do with depression. Depression is a serious medical illness. It is a state of low mood (melancholy), that affects a person's thoughts, activities, feelings and generally life. It makes us feel sad, anxious, hopeless and having a low self-esteem. The great trap is that sometimes the person who is under the affect of depression, cannot even recognize it, unless someone else make it clear to them, and most of the times it is hard to admit and accept it.

Our story has to do with a British young lady, Leila, who works at a great magazine and is in a relationship with James, a man that travels a lot and never has enough time for her. After some situations she decides to break up with him and make up her life... READ MORE ON Eve's Bookish World
