New Book
Aru Shah and the End of Time (A Pandava Novel Book 1) (Pandava Series) - Roshani Chokshi

I have started a new book this past few weeks, titled Aru Shah and the End of Time.  This book is about a mischievous girl and her adventure through the world of Hindu mythology to fix her own mistake in waking up the evil Sleeper.  This book has great imagery and comedy, and though it is targeted for a slightly younger demographic than my last book, it is still entertaining and unique.

 

My friend's book and my book are extremely different.  She is reading I Will Always Write Back.  While my book is extremely fictional--as it takes place in the Hindu world--and the setting is present day, her book is nonfiction and takes place in the '90s. It also does not have a prominent villain like in my book.

 

In one of the latest BookLikes posts, it discusses how to find new books on the website.  One method I suggest is to check out the blogs of your followers or the people you follow and see what they recommend.  Since they are your following, they will have a similar taste to you.

The Pill Bugs of Time (Offbeat Crimes #2) by Angel Martinez Review
The Pill Bugs of Time (Offbeat Crimes Book 2) - Angel Martinez

Relationship and communication issues plague Officer Vikash Soren, but those are nothing compared to facing stick-throwing tumbleweeds, pill bugs and…time travel?

Vikash Soren, the perfect police officer except for his odd paranormal ability, never seems to lose his temper. Always serene and competent, he’s taken on the role of mediator in a squad room full of misfits. But on the inside, he’s a mess. Unable to tell his police partner that he loves him, Vikash struggles silently, terrified of losing Kyle as a lover, partner and friend.

 

But life in the 77th Precinct doesn’t leave much room for internal reflection. A confrontation with a stick-throwing tumbleweed in Fairmount Park leads to bizarre consequences involving pill bugs, statues and…time travel? If Vikash manages to survive the week and stay in one point in time, he might be able to address normal things like relationship problems. He just needs Kyle to have a little more patience. Maybe a few centuries’ worth.

 

Review

 

This is the second book in the Off Beat Crimes series and the world and characters are great.

 

Kash and Kyle from the first book are on the case. Being closeted at work is taking a toll on their relationship and they have a case to solve.

 

I liked all the adventure elements and the emotionial struggles of Kash's character.

It was a fun read with a nice romance and HEA.

Tangled in Time, (Miss Main Street Book 1) - Angela Castillo,Angela Castillo

Tangled in Time, (Miss Main Street Book 1) by Angela Castillo
This book starts with Darcy as she arrived from LA after being notified she's her grandmothers beneficiary of her shop and everything in TX.
Kaley owned the bakery next door and was great friends with her gran. Darcy will take over where her gran left off and not sell it she'll run it herself.
She's not in a good space with her boyfriend, Jared in LA and he dictates where they go, what she will wear, etc. She's had it with him and prays to God to advise her.
Kaley next door also has man problems as she overhears a conversation. She hopes to comfort her.
Ramsey has stopped by, a boy from school and the neighborhood and he invites her to visit his parents for a meal soon.
Love mystery of the secret room as she get advice from contractors to come to the shop.
Love how the community shop owners welcome her to the area and are able to give her suggestions on how to be a hit.
Handmade items-traditional. Yorefest-I can just imagine people from 1860's showing their trades.
Like how she handles her ex and father showing up and also the new man in her life. Darcy has many episodes of remembering her grandmother and things she'd do, precious but heartbreaking at the same time.
Someone is out to get her and her business as they turn her shop to the inspectors. She wonders if the underground railroad is part of her secret room as the inspector notices some discrepancies.
Few characters and it's easy to keep track of them all. Love how the mysteries are solved and the outcome.
She prays to God often to help guide her. You wonder how she will survive on her own and without her grandmother but lots of help from others in the community. Excerpt from the next book in this series is included at the end.
Received a review copy of this book via Story Cartel and this is my honest review.

Star Wars: A Long Time Ago..., Book 2: Dark Encounters
Star Wars: A Long Time Ago..., Book 2: Dark Encounters - Star Wars Authors,Terry Austin,Carmine Infantino I remember reading these as comics when I was younger. Marvel had first done a serialisation of A New Hope, then carried on adding their own adventures for the series. This collection ends at the point where Empire Strikes Back was coming out and they were due to start the comics for that.

This book introduces some new baddies in the form of the Tagge family/business as well as Darth Vader and Jabba the Hut (one "t").
This was at a stage where Jabba hadn't been defined as a character by George Lucas, so the Marvel team made him a yellow furry humanoid.

Luke still has the hots for Leia at this point, and him and Han are always trying to impress her.

Most of the artwork is really crisp and bright (drawn by Carmine Infantino & Bob Wiacek) - one story illustrated by Mike Vosburg seems to detract from the rest of this collection.

Overall, a good dose of nostalgia for people who read these originally, and an interesting look at Marvel's take on expanding the universe.

It's Our Time (Carolina Rebels #3) by Lindsay Paige
It's Our Time (Carolina Rebels Book 4) -... It's Our Time (Carolina Rebels Book 4) - Lindsay Paige

Lindsay Paige scores with IT’S OUR TIME, the third book of the Carolina Rebels series.  Since he was a teenager, NHL defenseman, Ian Rhett, has only wanted one woman, Sydney Jarvis.  Mistakes were made, and secrets were kept. Ian’s goal is to convince Sydney to give their relationship another shot.  This contemporary sports romance takes place in North Carolina.  It is suitable for adult audiences.

 

Lindsay Paige does a great job with her character development.  Ian and Sydney are believable and likeable.  They have faults and grow through the story.  They have known each other for six-years; however, they still have a lot to learn about each other.  They have wonderful chemistry.  They are two people you want to see work things out.  Savannah is cute.  I love the things that came out of her mouth.

 

The plot was well laid out and convincing.  I like how the previous characters in the series were utilized throughout this book.  There was a lot of family drama that caused complications.  I enjoy Lindsay Paige’s writing style.  Her stories are genuine and heartfelt.  I am looking forward to Scott and Sylvia Boyd’s story the next book in the series, AN UNEXPECTED LIFE.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
