The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik Blog Tour: Review and Candle Making

The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik Blog Tour: Review and Candle Making

  Review: The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik by David Arnold is quirky and unique. I didn’t know what to expect diving into this one but I found that it was quite a creative read. This novel is a coming of age story of Noah. We follow him through his struggles of being a teenager. I really enjoyed all the references in this book. It made it a lot of fun. Why this book is so creative is that it is written to be like you are inside Noah’s mind and watching his decision processing. I found that I really […]


Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Interview: 1. What inspired SKY IN THE DEEP? How did the idea and Eelyn come to you? Do you have any favorite Viking stories? The sibling betrayal was definitely the first inspiration for this story. I was driving in the pouring rain on this country road and that first scene just hit me – Eelyn, seeing her brother on the battlefield after thinking that he was dead for five years. I pulled over on the side of the road and scribbled a million notes on an old envelope. I was immediately hooked to the idea and I wanted to know […]

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert is amazing. This story hooked me right away. I heard a lot of mixed early reviews and wasn’t sure what to think, so I needed to check it out myself and I am so glad that I did. I found myself wanting to know more about the mystery that is going on. Alice is a bit different. She doesn’t come across as your typical main character. Sometimes I liked her but most of the time I didn’t like her. Mainly because she wasn’t friendly. She kept people at arm’s length which kept other characters […]

Jane, Unlimited took me on a confusing roller coaster ride. I’ve heard so many mix reviews about this book that I’ve been a bit wishy-washy about starting it.

I’ve enjoyed it so far once I got to the first story. The introduction […]

Everless by Sara Holland is so good. This story was so much more than what I was expecting and I really enjoyed it. Everless starts out a bit slow but I found that it began to pick up the pace as we were introduced to the castle of Everless. Once inside Everless, I feel like there was so much going on. Jules lives in a world where time is drawn from your blood and is turned into currency. Punishment comes from your blood. You pay your bills with your blood. It is quite interesting to see how these people are […]

Between the Blade and the Heart Blog Tour: Review, Giveaway, Q&A, and Excerpt

Q&A with Amanda Hocking   Q: What or who was the inspiration behind Between the Blade and the Heart? A: I have already written several books inspired by Scandinavian folklore, and I was always fascinated by Valkyries. But because I had already done in Scandinavian fantasy, I wanted to come at this one from a different angle. I imagined the Valkyries helping to police a gritty, diverse, cyberpunk metropolis, in a world filled with not just Norse figures but from many mythologies.   Q: What are the life lessons that you want readers to glean from your book? A: That […]
