A Quote to Begin the Day…

“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.”
                              ~Ralph Ellison

So today’s my birthday. For the first time in my adult life, I am just me on my birthday. Not a student. Not a caregiver. Just me. I am delighted to say I am a Book Reviewer, which was something I could only have dreamed of when I was younger, to be surrounded by books and to be able to talk to others about the amazing worlds book give us. But as far as who I am as a person… well, I am still figuring that out. 

Thanks for all your continued support. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Enjoy!

Let’s Discuss…

Good Morning Everyone,

On Saturdays, I will be posting a question or topic for us to chat about. I hope you enjoy the discussions.

To start, I just want to know what your favorite genre is? Do you love to time travel through Historical Fiction or futuristic Science Fiction? Do you want to fall in love with romantic characters through tear-jerkers or Happily Ever Afters? Or do you like to stick with the facts and truth that non-fiction provides?

As for me, I really enjoy most genres. I feel that as long as the book is well-written, then I will be able to escape into it. Some genres, like horror and sci-fi, I have to be prepared and in the mood to read them, but other than that I will read whatever I can get my hands on.

So leave a comment below, telling me what genres you love the most!

Enjoy!

Book Trailer Thursday!!!

Hi Everyone,

Today’s book trailer link is for Christmas Wish the latest novella from Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. I hope you all like the video! I love their books because of the realistic characters and the interconnecting plots. The series doesn’t have to be read in order, but if you do, you gain a bit more “experience” living through various moments of these characters’ lives. To read my review of Christmas Wish, click here.

Personal Shelves Review

Hi Everyone,,

Tonight I wanted to share my review of Christmas Wish by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. This incredible writing duo has released a new novella in their Countermeasure Series. I absolutely love this spectacular series that has suspense, sub-plots, romance and characters that feel as real as your best friends.

 

Enjoy!

Christmas Wish

Countermeasure Bytes of Life #7

Stephan and Jessica are about to celebrate their first Christmas together as husband and wife. However, their happiness is put to the test as they face their inner fears, in preparation for their bundle of joy. Will they be able to open up to each other, or will their first holiday season also be their last?

Readers are first introduced to the romantic possibilities between Stephan and Jessica in To Russia with Love. In Christmas Wish, readers will fall in love with this couple, as they connect with the newlyweds on a deeper level. Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey have managed to turn 70-ish pages into an emotional, realistic journey that will satisfy the reader’s need to know more about this secondary couple. Christmas Wish is like a present wrapped with a bow for fans of the Countermeasure Series.

 

Notes:
I received an ARC of this book. To learn more about the authors and their work, visit their website.
