Thanks to Barclay Publicity for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing a little about Suzie T. Roos's Girl Divided Two today. Happy reading!

One of the attorneys turned around and stopped the media from following farther. The reporter shoved a microphone in his face.

“Does Mr. Bertano have connections to Switzerland?” one newswoman asked.

“What evidence do they have against your client?” another reporter shouted out.

That got the lawyer’s attention. “None. They have no evidence against Mr. Bertano. He has not been arrested, nor has he been charged. Now . . . if you could g…

REVIEW: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

It’s bloody freezing in the cell they throw me into and they seem in no hurry to bring me that extra blanket I’d asked for. It seems Tinfoil was right. Last night I was free, tonight I am caged. What’s worse, they’ve tossed me into the same cell as some kooky old lady who keeps eyeballing me from her corner.

‘Can I …

Adjusting to life with two children, one being a cranky two year old and the other being a newborn, is...hard.  I'm a little behind on a lot of things I wanted to do, but most importantly (at least of the things relevant to the blog), I'm behind on reviews I wanted to post.  So, as filler, I'm hoping to get some reviews up on books I've already read in the past.  The reason I'm mentioning it ahead of time is because they're books that have already come and gone in terms of hype.  For instance, I plan on sharing my thoughts on Twilight and its sequels, JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and maybe even the Harry Potter series.  Oh and can't forget Hunger Games.  So yeah, that ought to keep y'all entertained while I try to catch up on some reading (which is a ton harder to do than ever before)!

REVIEW: Phoenix Child by Alica Mckenna Johnson

Summary:Sara is just another group home kid. She’s given up on being part of a family and has planned out her life as a child of the system.

Enrolling in classes at the San Francisco Center for the Circus Arts, she meets strangers with frightening powers who say they are family, with a four thousand year old god as a common ancestor.

As Sara struggles with powers that overwhelm her, she must decide whether to turn her back on this new life or embrace her identity as Sapphire the Phoenix Child. The lives of hundreds of magical creatures rest on her decision.

MY SECOND PREGNANCY - Birthday

THE BIRTH
Today’s my birthday, so I thought it fitting that I post this today. WARNING: I will hold nothing back in this story, so it’ll be graphic.

Oh the agony…of WAITING! My daughter came at 37 weeks and 6 days after my water broke. There was no question that the baby was coming.

This was not the case with my son.

I’d had contractions on and off for weeks – WEEKS! At one point, we were worried that he’d come before September even started, then nothing. He was due on September 22nd and my mother in law was staying with us to watch my daughter during the event from August 29th to September 26th. When nothing happened by a few days before the 26th, she changed her flight to October 2nd.

On September 27th (40 weeks and 5 days), I felt a little nauseated during the afternoon, but otherwise completely normal. Miserable and anxious as hell (hoping I wouldn’t need to be induced). I was out with Tara conversing with neighbors and joking about how long the little guy was taking …

REVIEW: Windburn by Juliette Cross

Summary:In the Gladium Province, the boundaries between humans and Morgons, the dragon-hybrid race, continue to blur as a new generation surrenders to long-forbidden temptation…

Sorcha Linden does whatever she wants whenever she wants, and no one can stop her. Least of all a man. After all, they’re good for only one thing—warming her bed. But then she meets Lorian, brother of Lucius Nightwing. Seductive and iron-willed, Lorian is determined to melt her emotional defenses—and warm her rebellious heart.

The beast within Lorian longs to cage Sorcha and mark her as his own. Forever. Yet the man within also longs to protect her. When a stalker starts leaving Sorcha suggestive gifts with cryptic messages bearing an ancient blood cult symbol, Lorian’s dragon side takes over. With her life at stake, Sorcha can no longer deny the love they share. But when evil tracks her into the night, will she be too late to claim it?
