"Henry's Freedom Box"- Slavery Unit
Henry's Freedom Box: A True Story from the Underground Railroad - Ellen Levine

My co-operating teacher introduced me to this inspiring and emotional true story about Henry "Box" Brown. This story takes place during slavery and is a story about a young man who escapes through the underground railroad. After being torn from his mother at a young age, he started his very own family while living with his new owner. Year passed, and Henry felt as though his family was normal until his wife and children were sold at the slave market. With tears in his eyes, he watched his family in shackles, ride off knowing he would never see them again. A kind man, who opposed slavery, helped Henry construct an escape plan. To find out Henry's fate you will have to read the rest! This text will definitely be included in a history unit in my classroom. It gives a great perspective on how children lived in terror during slavery. This book is leveled at 3.0 on the accelerated reader scale.

I haven't felt this way about a book in a while!
Heart-Shaped Box - Joe Hill

I actually wanted to read this book for so long! I was super excited when I saw my local library had stocked it in there EPUBs so I ordered it. So glad I did! Joe Hill has this amazing style of writing, he brings his characters to life. He honestly doesn't mess you around either he puts you straight into the story. It took me 2 days to read this book as I was so into it! And will probably be talking about it for a while.

 

 

So lets get to the story, then shall we?

 

It's a ghost story. It has an atmosphere to it, then literally sent chill's down my spine while reading. If you are shocked by abuse, then this book might not be for you. I have my limit's and I was pretty disturbed by some of the scenes and plots in this tale, Just a heads up.

 

 

I loved Jude Coyne the main Protagonist His morbid collecting I mean you could totally imagine rockstars collecting that kind of stuff!

If you like a really scary.. Then I really, really recommend this book. I'm sure you guy's no my style of review's i hate giving away the plot of book's but i know 100% you guy's will love this.

Release: Blame It On the Shame Box set by Ashley Jade
 
 
 
Title: Blame It On the Shame: The Complete Series
Author: Ashley Jade
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date:  March 21, 2017 On Sale: Limited Time $1.99
 
 
 
 

Shame. It wounds us. It damages us.

Or, for the few poor souls out there like me...it defines us.
I'm the son of the devil himself—the most feared mob boss who ever lived.
I was cursed from the moment I took my first breath.
I hate him...and I never wanted to become him.
And I sure as hell never, ever, wanted anything of his.
 
Until her.
 
My name is Ricardo DeLuca. There are two things you need to know about me. The first—is that I'm in love with the girl who belongs to my father. The second—is that it turns out I am my father's son after all.
 
 
My name is Lou-Lou, and you probably think I'm a bitch.
You would be right—because I am.
You think you know all there is to know about me because of the man I belong to.
What you don't know—is my past, because I'll never tell you. 
What you don't know is my shame.
Because if you did—you'd be worse off than dead.
You'd be broken.
 
There are two sides to every story...this is ours.

Blame It On the Shame: Part 1
He backs me into the wall. “I'm giving you one chance, Lou-Lou. One chance to tell me what the hell is going on and why you're really here.” My heart thumps against my chest. “Fuck you.” His eyes darken. “Is that your final answer?” “No.” I give him a sugary sweet smile. “My final answer is—fuck you, asshole.” I try and get out from under him but he leans into me causing every cell in my body to ignite. “Leave me alone.” “Not a chance. Tell me why you're going on a date with Tyrone tonight.” I'm so thrown off by the change of subject I'm not sure how to respond. I decide to be blunt. “I don't owe you any explanations.” His jaw tics and he positions his hand beside my head. “You might not owe me any explanations but if you think I'm not telling my father about this you've got another thing coming, sweetie.” I laugh because he thinks he's got one up on me but he couldn't be more wrong. “Go right ahead.” I stare at the bruise forming on his cheek. “Knock yourself out.” The hand beside my head rattles so hard against the wall I jump. “I fucking knew it,” he says gruffly. I crinkle my nose. “You don't know anything.” “I know he's enlisting you to seduce Tyrone and Jackson as a way of getting close to them.” “You don't know what you're talking about,” I say. “Cut the shit. You already showed your cards the second I threatened to call him regarding your infidelity and you didn't piss yourself. That's how I knew you were in on it. Just like I know he's using you to spy on me. The only thing I can't figure out is why.” Shit. Now I really do want to piss myself because if DeLuca finds out that Ricardo knows all this because of me...I'm screwed. I have no choice but to resort to plan b. I stick out my chest and press myself flush against him. My breathing hitches when his eyes lock with mine, daring me to make my next move. I slowly trace my finger along his jaw before running it over his lips. He plants a soft kiss on my finger and I'm transfixed when he parts his mouth and licks the pad of my thumb, inviting me to continue. The electricity between us kicks up another notch and I slip my thumb past his lips. That's when he bites me. It's not hard enough to draw blood but it definitely doesn't tickle. I pull my hand back and flap it around to take the sting out. “That hurt.” His lips hover over my ear. “Consider that your warning. Stay away from my friends. Just go back home to the Hamptons where you can be a little mob princess and live off your sugar daddy.” The sound of my hand slapping his cheek takes both of us by surprise. “I'm not leaving,” I say. He rubs his cheek and his jaw works. “You don't have to because once I tell Tyrone that you belong to DeLuca he won't touch you with a 10-foot pole.” He smirks. “And once I tell DeLuca that you fucked up and let me in on the real reason you're here—I'm sure you'll be long gone.” I smile when the thought hits me. “I think you're forgetting something.” “What's that?” I wrap my arms around his neck and drag my teeth along the shell of his ear before whispering, “You won't have any friends once I tell them you're DeLuca's son and you've done nothing but lie straight to their faces for the past three years.” The look he gives me could kill me right where I stand. I lift my chin and push him off me. “Talk to you later, Ricky.” The look on his face is priceless when I blow him a kiss and slam the door.

Blame It On the Shame: Part 2
I don't know where he is...but I know he's close. I open my eyes and blink rapidly due to the rain coming down much harder now. Tingles erupt on my skin and the air thickens when I look ahead and see the outline of him walking. Only he's not walking toward me, he's walking away from me. He must have just left. When he takes another step, I realize he's not actually walking at all...he's stumbling. He holds his arm out, bracing himself against the alley wall briefly and I continue to watch him. He waits a beat and attempts to walk again, but stumbles...even worse this time. I've never seen Ricardo so out of sorts before. Panic jams in my chest with my next thought. Oh, god. What if he's hurt? What if someone attacked him? And just like that, I'm running as fast as I can to get to him. Since he's less than a block away, I catch up quickly. His back is turned to me but I reach for his arm as he begins to sway. His arm twitches and I can feel the chords of his muscles begin to tighten. Shit, he's going to take a swing. He hates being touched. "It's just me," I say quickly. "Only me." "I know it's you." His voice comes out slurred and gruff. "Are you okay?" He yanks his arm away. "I'm fine. Leave me the fuck alone. I don't need your help." I force myself to ignore the sharp sting of his words before slowly backing away from him. He falls against the alley wall and hangs his head. "Christ, I hate it when Tyrone's right. I'm never drinking again." "Famous last words," I say before I can stop myself. Memories of the day we first met and when he said those very same words to me begin to play through my head like a slideshow... That is until his head snaps up and he shoots me a look so threatening the entire world stops. "Fuck you," he spews.

Blame It On the Shame: Part 3
I take another step forward and peer down at her. “You think I would hurt you?” She glares at me, pure venom in her eyes. “Yes.” I won't let her know how much it kills me that she would think that. How much I hate that she has every right to think that...because it's the truth. Her mouth parts in surprise when I reach down and skim my thumb along her cheek. Before she can protest, I cup her jaw firmly with one hand and trace the delicate line of her neck with my other, pulling her closer. Her pulse races beneath my fingertips as I continue tugging her until she's pressed against me and can't escape my hold. My cock twitches so hard against her tight little body—straining to be inside her again, it's almost painful. She looks up at me with hooded eyes when I shift against her, giving her no choice but to feel me, and I can practically taste both her desire and her surrender right fucking then. I lean down until my lips are ghosting over hers. When her tongue darts out and she licks that lower lip—it takes everything in me not to suck it into my mouth, throw her up against the wall, rip off that trashy outfit she still has on, and take her over and over again in front of everyone...right here, right now. Instead, I tighten my grip on the back of her neck and look into her eyes. “You're right...I would.” I let go of her abruptly and she stumbles back, her expression a combination of shocked and pissed the hell off.
I'm a lover of romance, erotica, dark romance, oxford comma's, the em dash, peanut butter on my cookies and anything thought provoking...except for math. I've always read books growing up and after having a strange dream one night; I decided to just go for it and publish my first series. Little did I know, I would end up falling head over heels in love with writing and it would own and soothe my soul. If I'm not paying off student loan debt, working, or writing a novel—you can usually find me listening to music and pondering the meaning of life. Check my amazon page and Facebook page for future novels. I recently became hip and joined Twitter, so you can find me there, too. I love connecting with my fans—you are my world.

this was awesome!
Point Shot Trilogy Box Set - V. L. Locey
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is a single review for the box set of three books that were originally published separately. If you are going to read these books, I STRONGLY recommend you wait til you have all three books in your possession. There are cliffhanger endings to both book one, Two Man Advantage and book two, Game Misconduct. Book three, Full Strength, rounds everything up in a big fat bow. I'm just gonna throw this at you, and see what your reaction is. Single. Person. Point. Of. View. In the first person. And your reaction to me saying that would be thus: " I didn't like it, I hate it, we needed to hear from so and so" And ordinarily, yes, that would be my reaction. But here?? HERE??? Freaking loved it!!! Victor is, in his own words, an ass. And he is, at the beginning a mean spirited hockey player with a chip on his shoulder the size of the Major Oak (google it :-0) And he wise cracked one time too many, and ended up a league down, for the foreseeable future. Dan is the alternate captain for the lower league team. But Dan and Vic have an instant and powerful reaction to each other. And I loved watching Vic fall, and fall hard and so bloody fast he couldn't keep his skates on the ice. There are, along the way, a .....minor....no MAJOR hiccup or two the pair have to deal with and it is almost painful watching Vic deal with Dan being called up, then the parental issue, and then with his's head injury. But equally its heart warming and lovely and hearts and flowers. Victor himself says: 'Kissing my fiance was damn dreamy too, but if anyone ever talks about the fact that I used such words, I will flatly deny it, then pummel that person about the head with a hockey stick' Because that is who Vic is. And I just wanted to do what Mrs Arou does, and hug him up and tell him its not too late to have a mother who loves you. Because of the wonderful personality that Vic is, I didn't really miss Dan not having his say. But now I'm typing it up, I can honestly say, had Dan had a say, I might NOT have enjoyed this so much, because we would have gotten much LESS of Vic and this is, really, HIS story. And I loved him. First I've read of this author, that I can see. Would love to read more (but not the zombies, oh no, never the zombies!) in the future. 5 full stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
