Cover Reveal Of Immortals (Runes Series Book #2) By Ednah Walters And Giveaway


Immortals (Runes Series Book #2) By Ednah Walters

Immortals
Ednah Walters
Publication date: August 5,2013
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance


Synopsis:
Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…

Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology but that doesn’t stop her from falling hard for him. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her or that she saved him by making a deal with Norns—Norse destiny deities—the same Norns who have now erased his memories of their past together to punish her.

So Raine comes up with a plan...

She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again. But before Raine can put her plan into action, the Norns return. This time, they demand she protects Eirik Seville, her best friend since childhood, from an evil so dark even the Norns are scared.

But you know what they say about well-laid plans…

Caught between protecting Eirik and convincing the stubborn, cocky Torin St. James that the two of them are meant to be together, Raine's life slowly unravels. Friendships are tested. Enemies become allies. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves. Release Date: August 5th 2013 by Firetrail Publishing.

Norma Jean Blog Tour: Review Of Norma Jean By Amanda Heath And A Giveaway


Mrs. Potter’s Book Publicity Services Presents

A Month Long Blog Tour For:

Norma Jean


By: Amanda Heath

Blurb:

The night Chance Duncan drunkenly kissed me on his couch, I vowed my revenge. I finally had something over his head, something that would bring him to his knees. It only served him right. He bullied me for years and turned me into this messed up person I am now. 

Though I didn’t know at the time he wasn’t that mean little boy anymore. He was almost a man and easily stole my breath away. I just wanted to make him fall in love with me, then break his heart into a million pieces. Just the way mine was. Instead he put the pieces back together and I started to feel whole again. 


Good things never last. He did what I was supposed to do. Broke my already fragile heart all over again. Betrayed and alone I fled my home town and started a new life where I wasn’t in the shadow of what I did. 


Now he is back and trying to worm his way into my heart, again. Though he will never know it will always belong to him. He hurt me and I want nothing to do with him. Life has other plans. Doesn’t it always? 


He doesn’t know though. Doesn’t know what I’m hiding or who I’m hiding from. I never thought I would see Chance again and I’m afraid that he’ll get hurt getting mixed up in my mess. Though he is right in the middle of it, without even knowing it. I have to find a way for us to get out, before somebody dies. 


My name is Norma Jean and this isn’t a fairytale.

*This title is a new adult novel and not for those under 18 for sexual content and subject matter.*

When I first heard about Norma Jean I knew it was a book I wanted to read. I knew it would be a departure from what I normally read but since I like a wide variety of book genres and this story spoke to me I figured I would give it a try. I am so glad that I did. Amanda Heath has written an amazing tragic story that didn't back down from displaying the harsh reality of just how cruel life and people can really be.

Norma Jean, in her tween years, was the butt of every cruel taunt and joke that Chance Duncan could think of. He tormented her so thoroughly that he scared Norma Jean emotionally for the rest of her life. When an opportunity presented itself one night, by way of a drunken kiss by Chance when she was baby sitting his niece, Norma hatched a plan to extract her revenge on Chance Duncan once and for all.

Chance Duncan came from a troubled home life. He will forever be haunted by the fact that his father cheated on his mother, in their home, especially because his father knew that he and his sister where home at the time and just didn't care enough to even try and hide it from them. This started Chance down the road to shutting down emotionally and deflecting his pain onto someone else, namely Norma Jean.

With one drunken kiss, Norma Jean and Chance's lives changed FOREVER. Norma wanted to hurt Chance and he in turn wanted to right his wrong with Norma Jean and have a real life with her. But like all things good and not so good their intentions never go the way they planned. Norma ends up falling in love with Chance only to have her heart ripped out again and he gets told  by the woman he loves, via her diary, that her love was just a cruel revenge plot to bring him to his knees.

What they don't realize is that they are just pawns on a chessboard for a dark and sinister force who will stop at nothing to get what they want and happily ruin their lives in the process.

I could tell you more about it but in doing so, I would ruin this fantastic story for everyone and trust me when I tell you that what I have said is only a tiny tip of a HUGE iceberg. Amanda had me so invested in this story it brought me to tears and I LOVED every second of it. I feel that this book is relateable to everyone in some form or another. On a scale from 1-10 I give Norma Jean a great big 10. It touched my soul in a way that no other book ever has. If you are looking for a story that has characters with real human flaws, raw emotions, insurmountable odds, or just one heck of a book than I encourage EVERY adult 18+ to pick up a copy of Norma Jean and let them tell you their tragic tale of woe in their own words.

Runes Blog Tour: Review Of Runes (Runes Series Book #1) By Ednah Walters And An AWESOME Giveaway














I, along with 51 other bloggers will have been/will be bringing you the Runes Blog Tour. I am having an AMAZING time with some pretty kool blogs. After you check out my review of Runes you should enter the giveaway below. Also make sure to check out all the blog stops on this tour. I just want to say thanks to our blog tour hosts Walking On Bookshelves, Forbidden Passions Reviews, and PageFlipperz YA for putting this all together.


Runes by Ednah Walters
Publication date: May 20th 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

Blurb:

Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.


Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.


I have been a BIG fan of Ednah Walters since the very first book in her Guardian Legacy Series. I thought it was amazing. I have also read her Fitzgerald Series written as E.B. Walters, although I loved it, I felt it could not top the first series of hers I read. BUT all that changed when I read Runes. It is such a PHENOMENAL book I just couldn't put it down but at the same time I was trying to prolong it because I didn't want it to end. For the first time EVER I didn't know what to do with myself when I finished this book. I was literally counting down the days til part 2 came out and wondering if I could last til then....lol. 

Lorraine "Raine" Cooper seemingly has it all, a great best friend named Cora Jemison, an unofficial boyfriend named Eirik Seville (childhood friend who used to live next door), an eclectic mother, and a doting father (until he went missing). That is all about to change with the arrival of Torin St. James. An oh so dreamy bad boy type with electric blue eyes. With the summer winding down Raine is getting ready to rejoin the swim team with the rest of her friends until Torin changes the course of Raine's life forever.


Soon left with more questions then answers Raine sets out to learn who and what Torin is so she can get back to her life and her boyfriend whom she has always wanted, although, even that she isn't sure about anymore. With Torin always showing up and "helping" her and with weird new students who keep popping up all the time Raine starts to question her sanity, her fate, magic, and if she can really take Torin at his word and truly trust him to help save her life, her friends, and the lives of the swim team.


I am so trying not to say the wrong things and ruin this book for anyone. Trust me, in my opinion, this is one book you do not want ruined. To me, Runes is a MUST read for EVERYONE in 2013. Ednah has totally blown me away with her ability to suck me in and leave me wanting for more. Like I said before I have been a BIG fan of hers for a while but now if she wrote an auto repair manual I would read it. That is how FANTASTIC I think her and her writing is. On a scale from 1-10 I give Runes (Runes Series Book #1) an ENORMOUS 20. Yes, it is off my scale but that is a testament to how amazing I think this book is. If you are a fan of true love, destiny, mythical beings, or are just looking for the best book out there (in my opinion) then I encourage EVERYONE to run (not walk) out and pick yourself up a copy of this book. Help Raine discover Torin's secrets and save the lives of everyone she cares about.


AND NOW FOR AN EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 1 IN TORIN'S POV:

She frowned, her chin lifting. “He doesn’t always come here after school, you know. You could try his house or text him.” 


Nice comeback. “If I wanted to use modern technology I would, but I’d rather not. Could you do me a favor?”


She shook her head, her frown deepening, her gaze assessing. Once again, I fought the urge to bolt even though I had no idea why. She was just a girl, a mere Mortal, I told myself. The problem was repeating that crap didn’t stop the effect she appeared to have on me.


“You’re shaking your head again. Did my question confuse you? Am I talking too fast, too slow, or is it me? I’ve been told my presence tends to, uh, throw people off.”


She crossed her arms, her chin shooting up, so she could stare down her nose at me. “No.”


The movement drew my attention to her chest. That I found her modest chest fascinating annoyed the Hel out of me.


“No to what?” I asked. I knew I was being rude, probably making a complete ass of myself, but I didn’t give a crap. It was self-preservation time.


“No, you didn’t confuse me. And no, I won’t do you a favor,” she said.


Forget this. I plucked wraparound sunglasses from my front pocket, slipped them on, and turned to leave. What in Hel’s Mist was wrong with me? Grown men trembled in my presence and begged me to spare their lives. Yet here I was running away from a woman. No, not a woman. A girl on the verge of becoming a woman all because she made me feel something I didn’t understand and couldn’t explain.


Steeling myself, I turned and gave her my most charming smile. The one that often got me play with women of all ages. “Okay, Raine with an E, what do I have to do to make you play nice?”
