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!

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.

Genre:   Contemporary Romance

Summary:

A romantic who believes in love…

Walking love disaster, Mia Donovan, is a reality television production assistant by day, secret dating blogger, Lonely Girl, by night.  All she has to do to get the job of a lifetime is face her fears and step in front of the camera. Unfortunately that also means dating her nemesis, Single Guy, for the entire world to see.

A cynic giving love advice…

Reluctant, dating columnists, Ryan Matthews, otherwise known as Single Guy, thinks reality-dating shows are soul-sucking endeavors that have more to do with selling unrealistic expectations than love. But for a shot at writing serious stories, he’s willing to go undercover on Love Reality to do an exposé on the dating competition. What he doesn’t count on, is falling in love.

Excerpt:

The fluttering low in her belly told her she was in trouble. But it was her brain perking up that told her she was a goner. She slid into the booth next to him. “You’re right. I made an assumption. And we all know when you make an assumption, you make an ass out of you—”

He didn’t even let her finish, as they excitedly chanted in unison “—and umption.”

He laughed. “What? You thought you were going to get me with a Samuel L. quote? Long Kiss Goodnight is a classic movie. Okay, now that I pass muster on movies and music. Time to get personal. Text or talk.”

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“Good books don’t give up all their secrets at once.”

                                  ~Stephen King

How much truer can this quote get? An amazing book draws you in, keeps you guessing and forces you to live in that world! Just a few of the authors whose books have kept me searcing for their secrets up until the very end: Dan Brown, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, and the duo, Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. I thrive on hunting down the clues and trying to guess the outcomes, before the characters figure it all out. Very few authors have been able to write books that continue the suspense through the last few pages and I do a dance each time I discover a new “Clue Master.” (Remember, Nancy Drew was one of the first series that I read as a young child, and yes, I may have become a bit obsessed with solving “mysteries”!)

Tell me in the comments below who are some of your favorite authors that keep you on your toes!

Have a wonderful day!

Enjoy!
