WRITER WEDNESDAY: An Interview with Erica Cameron

Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the first installment of Writer Wednesday! Today, I have the distinct honor of hosting the wonderful Erica Cameron, writer of YA SFF and YA Contemporary fiction!

ARC Review: Reckless Behavior by L.A. Witt & Cari Z


35611965Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Release Date: January 1, 2018
Received From: NetGalley

After too many years of putting his job first, Detective Andreas Ruffner is getting his priorities straight. He’s ready to spend some quality time with his adult kids, not to mention come clean about some things he should’ve told them a long time ago. And introduce them to his partner and boyfriend, Darren Corliss.

But in a heartbeat, a family dinner turns into Andreas’s worst nightmare. When the dust settles, one of his kids is hurt, and the other three have been abducted.

Andreas is going to find his kids, and nothing, not even a broken ankle, is going to stop him. Thank God for his sharp, level-headed partner . . . who has a crisis of his own pulling him away when Andreas needs him the most. As both men try to support—and lean on—each other, they get no closer to finding the kids. And the longer the children are missing, the less likely it is they’ll ever be found.

BLOG TOUR: ARC Review: Pulse by Danielle Koste


vresi73Publisher: Self pub
Release Date: January 1, 2018
Received From: Review copy from the author

Rowan Platts is addicted to success.

When she’s presented with the chance to work on a top secret project fronted by her idol, renowned virologist Dr. Margot Miller, Rowan signs her life away without second thought. The realization she’s gotten in over her head comes only after the subject of their study is revealed: a boy with a bad attitude and an uninhibited taste for human blood.

He’s a medical anomaly. Having the ability to crush metal with his bare hands and hear a heartbeat from across the room, it would make Rowan’s career if she was the one to discover what made him so unusual.

Easier said than done, with a subject who prefers snapping necks over answering questions.

ARC Review: Finding Home by Garrett Leigh


35222432Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Release Date: October 9, 2017
Received From: NetGalley

How do you find a home when your heart is in ashes?

With their mum dead and their father on remand for her murder, Leo Hendry and his little sister, Lila, have nothing in the world but each other. Broken and burned, they’re thrust into the foster care system. Leo shields Lila from the fake families and forced affection, until the Poulton household is the only place left to go.

Charlie de Sousa is used to other kids passing through the Poulton home, but there’s never been anyone like his new foster brother. Leo’s physical injuries are plain to see, but it’s the pain in his eyes that draws Charlie in the most.

Day by day, they grow closer, but the darkness inside Leo consumes him. He rejects his foster parents, and when Charlie gets into trouble, Leo’s attempt to protect him turns violent. When Leo loses control, no one can reach him—except Charlie. He desperately needs a family—a home—and only Charlie can show him the way.

Diversity Spotlight Thursday – Indigenous/Native MCs!


Diversity Spotlight Thursday is a weekly book meme that was started by my amazing, lovely friend Aimal over at Bookshelves and Paperbacks! The We Need Diverse Books movement is something that is incredibly close to my heart, so I hope to share some new books with you each week so you can diversify your reading. Each week will feature a specific theme, and I look forward to seeing recs from y’all as well!

Diversity Spotlight will take place every Thursday, and it will be featuring three books in any given week:

  1. A diverse book you have read and enjoyed
  2. A diverse book that has already been released but you have not read
  3. A diverse book that has not yet been released
