The Dragons of Nova (Loom Saga #2) by Elise Kova Publication Date: July 11, 2017 Publisher: Keymaster Press
Cvareh returns home to his sky world of Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with trust — hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova, Ari finds herself closer to exacting vengeance against the traitor who killed everything — and everyone – she once loved. But before Ari can complete her campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh. While Nova is embroiled in blood sport and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their Dragon oppressors. Florence unexpectedly finds herself at the forefront of change, as her unique blend of skills — and quick-shooting accuracy — makes her a force to be reckoned with. For the future of her world, she vows vengeance against the Dragons. Before the rebellion can rise, though, the Guilds must fall.
 
My Review
I really enjoyed this book a lot too, even though it took a little bit longer to get into, compared to the first book. But even though I still liked this book a little bit more than the first one. I think that's because of the last half of the book, so much happens. There are some deaths especially one very surprising one, at the end. Cvareh is still my absolute favorite of all the characters, I really love how he feels towards Ari, and I feel that after this book, I would love for them two to get together in the end. Flor really surprised me towards the very end of the book, and I am not sure about how I feel about what she did. She is sure changing compared to what she was like, in the beginning of the first book. Something's that happened in this book is sure going to make the last book in the series very interesting. And I can't wait until December to find out what that is going to be. I am so happy I was chosen to take part in the book tour for this awesome and action packed book.

Reading progress update: I've read 16%.
The Dragons of Nova (Loom Saga) - Elise Kova

I really wanted to be further along in this book by now, but my weekend and this week have been crazy. So I haven't been able to read much of the book. On the weekends my husband whom is a truck driver is home, so are family has family time on the weekends. And I have been babysitting my great nieces and nephews on Monday through Thursday, and this week my niece Andrea has been working later than usual. 

Now back to the book, I am still loving Cvareh and Flor the most so far, even though I do like Ari. I am really not sure how I feel about Cvareh's sister, at all, or any of the other characters that have their own point of views in this book. So far I am enjoying this second book, but I am not as crazy for this book as much as I was for the first book. Hopefully that changes, since I am not that far into the story.

Secrets of a Reluctant Princess by Casey Griffin Publication Date: March 7, 2017 Publisher: Entangled Teen At Beverly Hills High, you have to be ruthless to survive… Adrianna Bottom always wanted to be liked. But this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Now, she’s in the spotlight…and out of her geeky comfort zone. She’ll do whatever it takes to turn the rumor mill in her favor—even if it means keeping secrets. So far, it’s working. Wear the right clothes. Say the right things. Be seen with the right people. Kevin, the adorable sketch artist who shares her love of all things nerd, isn’t exactly the right people. But that doesn’t stop Adrianna from crushing on him. The only way she can spend time with him is in disguise, as Princess Andy, the masked girl he’s been LARPing with. If he found out who she really was, though, he’d hate her. The rules have been set. The teams have their players. Game on.
 
My Review
 
 
For me the book started out pretty slowly, and I wasn't really sure if I was going to finish it or not. Luckily the book started to get better and it was a very funny book. I think my favorite character was Kevin, he was so super cute to me, I love a character that is kind of a nerd, especially guys. I also liked Adrienne and felt bad for her at times. Some of the side characters I liked also such as Keelie whom is Kevin's sister and Harper, Adrienne best friend. My favorite parts were when they're LARPing, even though Kevin thinks shes a girl named Andi. I really liked the ending a lot. I have to mention Lennox whom Harper likes is so clueless and so naive. I am happy I requested to take part in the blog book tour for this book, and my opinion is my very own.
 
Casey Griffin can often be found at comic conventions on her days off from her day job, driving 400 ton dump trucks in Northern Alberta, Canada.

Lost Girls by Merrie Destefano Publication Date: January 3, 2017 Publisher: Entangled Teen Fight Club meets Black Swan—Rachel wakes up in a ditch to find she doesn’t remember the last year of her life, and that everything—including herself—is vastly different than she remembers. Yesterday, Rachel went to sleep listening to Taylor Swift, curled up in her grammy’s quilt, worrying about geometry. Today, she woke up in a ditch, bloodied, bruised, and missing a year of her life. She doesn’t recognize the person she’s become: she’s popular. She wears nothing but black. Black to cover the blood. And she can fight. Tell no one. She’s not the only girl to go missing within the last year…but she’s the only girl to come back. She desperately wants to unravel what happened to her, to try and recover the rest of the Lost Girls. But the more she discovers, the more her memories return. And as much as her new life scares her, it calls to her. Seductively. The good girl gone bad, sex, drugs, and raves, and something darker…something she still craves—the rush of the fight, the thrill of the win—something she can’t resist, that might still get her killed… The only rule is: There are no rules.
My Review
This book is definitely a book that I normally wouldn't pick to read, but I am so super excited that I took a chance to read it. I freaking loved this book to pieces. I wanted to know what happened to Rachel just as much as she did. Boy could she freaking kickbutt big time. I loved her relationship with her brother but her and her father's relationship really was fantastic. I wouldn't want to get on his bad side. 
I also really loved her boyfriend Dylan so freaking much, he was a freaking bad-ass as well. And I loved what he did at the end for Rachel, just loved that so much. I liked that he had a dark side, but a loving and romantic one also.
I also loved her friend Molly, who even after Rachel pushed her away still wanted to help her find out what happened as well. I liked some of her new friends such as Zoe, and Stephanie.
The mystery of what happened to Rachel, I figured out some of it but not all. I really loved finding out all that happened to her. I thought the ending was awesome as well. Only thing I didn't like was that Rachel didn't something towards the end that she knew she shouldn't do, but she still did it anyways. But it had to happen, so what followed could take place. So I will forgive her for that.  
I would definitely recommend this book to people that love a book that has a girl that can kick ass. And for people that love a good mystery. It's really an awesome and exciting book to read. I would definitely read it, if I was you.

Blue Fire is both blessing and curse. A gift from the gods, its mystical light and energy powers and protects the land of Nevyana, but it also divides her people into three distinct groups. In the wrong hands, it becomes a formidable weapon. When sacred objects for channelling Blue Fire are stolen, sworn enemies Petra, Amlinn, and Jin set out to find them, and their paths converge on a collision course with the truth. Can they bridge the centuries-old divide between their communities? Or will their search for the truth and the explosive power of Blue Fire signal the end of Nevyana?
 
My Review
I have to say I really loved this book a whole lot, I feel in love with all three of these individuals. Petra, Amlinn, and Jin were three brave individuals. I loved all three of their parts in the story that they played apart of. I really loved all three of their relationships. I loved that they were suppose to be enemies but became such friends. 
I really loved the ending and thought things ended the way they should of. What I didn't like was it took along time for Petra and Amlinn to get introduced to Jin. It took hardly anytime for Petra and Amlinn to meet so that was nice. I loved that it took awhile before Petra and Amlinn got together. Of course that is because Petra was a Priest Apprentice, I think that made things interesting. Because Petra shouldn't have had those type of feelings for Amlinn, he did try to not have them that's for sure. I loved that all three of them stood up for what they believed in. And that they knew that instead of fighting with one another that there clans, that is what I call them, should join together.
Even the bad guy of the story you could understand why he did what he did, even though he went about it the wrong way. It was such an awesome and fun book to read.


Edward Willett is the award-winning author of more than fifty books of fiction and non-fiction for children, young adults, and adults. He lives in Regina with his wife, Margaret Anne; their teenage daughter, Alice; and their Siberian cat, Shadowpaw.
