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.

Date: August 1, 2016 Publisher: Rebelight Publishing
 
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.

Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.
Chasing Truth (Eleanor Ames) - Julie Cross
CHASING TRUTH BY JULIE CROSS BLOG TOUR
– DIGITAL ASSETS Tour Date: September 26-Oct 14, 2016
Purchase Links: Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Amazon.co.uk | Amazon.ca | IndieBound | BAM | TBD
Giveaway Information: $50 Amazon Gift Card + a paperback copy of Whatever Life Throws at You (INT)
Chasing Truth (Eleanor Ames #1) by Julie Cross Publication Date: September 27, 2016
Publisher: Entangled TEEN
At Holden Prep, the rich and powerful rule the school—and they’ll do just about anything to keep their dirty little secrets hidden. When former con artist Eleanor Ames’s homecoming date commits suicide, she’s positive there’s something more going on.
The more questions she asks, though, the more she crosses paths with Miles Beckett. He’s sexy, mysterious, arrogant…and he’s asking all the same questions. Eleanor might not trust him—she doesn’t even like him—but they can’t keep their hands off of each other. Fighting the infuriating attraction is almost as hard as ignoring the fact that Miles isn’t telling her the truth…and that there’s a good chance he thinks she’s the killer.
My Review
 
I really enjoyed this book it had a very good mystery with in regards to who killed is in the book. I liked both of the main characters, they aren't my favorite storybook couples but not the worst either.
My favorite part of the book is why Eleanor's friend was murdered. I thought the book ended well for right now, and I really can't wait to see what Eleanor and Miles next adventure is going to take them. I think I liked Eleanor's sister and the sisters boyfriend better than the main characters.
The reason I gave the book 4/5 *, is due to the fact that the book started out slow for me. And also because I liked the secondary characters better than the main ones. At first I was going to only give it 3 1/2 stars but because I liked the plot and I wasn't sure who the killer was in advance, I had to go with 4*.
I would definitely recommend this book to other readers, and I would buy other books from this author.

                Excerpt
 





My arm trembles as I grip the cool handle of my pistol, keeping a firm grasp to ensure it doesn’t slip out of my sweaty hand. It usually stands sentry in my left nightstand to scare the nightmares away. But this isn’t a dream. The room is dark and hides the face of the man whose intent is to kill me. But I know who he is. A metallic taste fills my mouth; I want to gag. My blood drips off the blade in his hand in slow, steady beats on the carpet. My arms shake as I lift the barrel and point it in his direction. He doesn't move. His heavy breaths alert me to the meager distance between us.
We’re at a stalemate.
A soft glow from the lamppost just outside my window casts a sliver of light on his face. His dark, beady eyes that I have grown to know rake over my body like I'm another one of his many victims. He lifts the edges of his mouth into a smile. My heart plunges into my stomach. I know what that sinister expression means, and I think back to all the times he had looked at me like that before. I had been so blind.
Before I react he lunges at me, grabbing onto my waist and twisting me to the ground. I shriek as my head slams against the bed frame. Black spots flood my vision. I squeeze my hand only to find it empty. My gun is gone. The sound of the knife clattering on the floor gives me slight hope. Not much though. He climbs up my body trying to pin my arms to the floor. I thrash my fists around, desperate to knock him off.
“Get off!” I scream, pulling on his shirt and kicking him off balance. Wrapping his hands around my arms, my attacker cuts off the circulation of blood. Rug burns flare across my skin as he drags me across the carpet. He closes his hands around my neck, shutting off my air supply. I pull at his hands but it's no use; he has always been stronger than me. My pulse drums a frantic beat in my ears. The air slowly leaks out from my lungs, killing any hope I may have left. I search for the gun around the room; it may be my only savior now.
"Why are you doing this?" I struggle to get the words out. He squints his dark eyes. I'm wondering if there might be a chance that he will stop this madness. I am wrong.
"It'll be over soon, sweetheart." His hands again tighten around my neck, blocking the air from entering my lungs.





My Review
 
WoW the villain in this book is such a sicko. I really felt so bad for Cami the way this sicko kept terrorizing her. People close to her die, but she keeps going, even though she does break down a lot. (But who can really blame her?)
 
I really loved Isaac, who of course becomes Cami's love interest, he was so great to her after she was attacked. I felt bad for him as well, he didn't have a great history in the love department either. 
 
The whole book in general was so tensed, you never knew what was going to happen next. I loved the book. The one I really didn't like of course was the sicko bad guy. I would definitely read this book again, and buy it when I have some money. 
 
I am so happy I was chosen to be part of the book tour for this book. Thanks so much Chapter by Chapter for giving me this chance to read this book and for just giving my honest opinion on how I felt about the book.
