Blurb:

There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He’d never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him.

But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

Infinity + One – Review

Amy Harmon…I could go on and on about this amazing lady’s talents. Since discovering her books last year, after reading The Bird and the Sword, I’ve been slowly making my way through her entire catalog. Her writing appeals to my personality so perfectly, and some of her books are among my all- time favorite reads. Her books are beautiful mix of feeling, romance, and faith. She weaves together elements within the story-line so flawlessly, I always find myself wondering how she does it. The glimpse her writing gives into her brain never fails to make me want more!

January Recap

Happy February dear book lovers! ♥
We hope you all had a good start into the new year? Have you set up your reading challenge for 2017 yet? We have and if you want to take a look, click the following:

People’s new year’s resolutions always include losing weight, eating healthier and working out more. And most of those resolutions are quickly forgotten only after the first few weeks. What about resolutions like “This year I want to read XX books!”? If you are not an avid reader (yet) and a newbie to this awesome book community, start small. Set your goal to five or maybe ten books for 2017. Even one is fine. We worked out quite a few tips for making time to read this year. Why don’t you check them out here.

Here are our reviews as well as cover reveals and book releases for January:

February is all about “Throwback Thursday”, or as we call it: “We try to re-read a few of our favorite books and review them”.  🙂 Among the re-reads we also plan to read a few new books, or new books to us, because all of our literally 100 unread ebooks on our ebook readers are, in fact, new to us. 😉 Here are the books we intend to read and review in February: roomies by Lindy Zart, God-Shaped Hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo, Dearest Clementine by Lex Martin, How to Kill A Rockstar by Tiffanie DeBartolo, The Trace + Olivia Series by Micalea Smeltzer, Infinity + One by Amy Harmon, A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart, Marrow by Tarryn Fisher, Crossed by Ally Condie and Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher.

Our Favorite Books of 2016

It has been a great year of reading, learning, and discovering new authors. We have fully immersed ourselves in the reading community, made new friends through it, and have had a wonderful year all thanks to the books we’ve grown to love.
And here is a list of our favorite books of 2016: Continue reading “Our Favorite Books of 2016”

The Bookworm Box Book Signing

On Saturday, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the signing at Colleen Hoover’s The Bookworm Box bookstore in Sulpher Springs, Texas featuring Colleen Hoover (obviously), Christine Brae, Amy Harmon, Brittainy C. Cherry, Alessandra Torre, BB Easton, and Christina Lauren.coho.png

I bought my ticket for the signing the day before Halloween, so I have been anxiously awaiting meeting my favorite authors for weeks!  The night before, I could hardly go to sleep, like a kid on Christmas Eve!  Saturday morning I woke up early to head out, since it is about a three and a half hour drive to Sulpher Springs. Christine Brae (!!!) invited three of us “Brae’s Butterflies” to lunch before the signing- Ashleigh, Rachel, and Me.  I was running a little behind schedule — slow poke Texas drivers were in between Christine and me for too long!! Finally, I made it to town to Muddy Jake’s restaurant to eat lunch with Christine and my book buddies.  I felt like I had a million things I wanted to talk to Christine about, but couldn’t think of any of them when I was actually there.  It was exciting to finally be with her in person after talking to her all year on Facebook, nonetheless!  I can’t say enough good things about her, she is the sweetest, most impeccably dressed woman!  Of course, I already knew I would love her, but I just wanted to spend all day with her! lunch.png

Christine and Kiki had to head over to the Bookworm Box to set up for the signing, so the Butterflies and I finished our lunch, went back to our cars to get our suitcases full of books (ha!) , and get in line.  While we were having a blast and waiting in line, we were able to spot Kim Holden, author of Bright Side and So Much More, when she hopped in line behind us and J.R. Rogue, the poetry goddess and author of La Douleur Exquise and Burning Muses!  Our stalking skills were on point, to say the least.jen.png

Finally, we made it in the store to Brittainy C. Cherry’s line first.  It was surreal to see the authors in person after watching their careers and lives unfold on social media for so long.  Everyone talks about how nice and genuine the authors are after they meet them, but that is such an understatement.  They are humble, and almost fans of their readers as much as we’re fangirls of them.  I was worried, much like Colleen is about meeting Ellen DeGeneres, that the authors may not live up to my expectations in person.  I am happy to be wrong, I only love them each So Much More after meeting them. 😉authors

I have a journal to write my favorite song lyrics, movie and book quotes inside that I was anxious to have the authors sign by their quotes, along with paperback copies of their work.  I was able to spot Kim Holden and JR Rogue again in line and find their quotes in my book to have them sign as well!

I was completely in awe of how the writers were signing unlimited books for their fans, especially Colleen and Amy!  Talk about hand (or neck) cramps from writing non-stop for 3+ hours!  My favorite moments were simply being able to chat with everyone, lunch with Christine, and snagging an indie copy of Making Faces!  The day was such a blast, I wish I could go back in time to relive it again.  amy

This book community has become one of the highlights of 2016 for me, and I’m just so thankful to be a part of it.  Readers and authors are so down to earth.  I’m convinced the ability to put ourselves in our favorite character’s shoes makes us more compassionate and loving towards others.  This is one of the most supportive communities there is- people go out of their way to take care of others they have only met through social media, and if and when book friends finally meet, it is as if they’ve been friends for life.
I’m speaking from experience!

 

Now it’s time to build a bigger bookshelf… 🙂 Though my books aren’t quite ready for the shelf yet.  I have to keep holding them and looking at them because I can’t believe I really have these awesome signed copies of my favorite books! ♥
