It's the End of the Month As We Know It: March 2014

Hey you guys! So... I've been really quiet as far as the blog and reading are concerned. I have no idea why, but I hope that things pick up again soon. I guess it wasn't a total fail, though. I got to do a fair amount of bookish things, just not really the typical bookish things. I had a weekend of awesomeness at the Tucson Festival of Books. I got to meet Lois Lowry, Cornelia Funke and Isaac Marion. I also got to see Shelley Coriell again and meet Morgan Rhodes. THEN I got to get my books by all these authors signed! It was a little overwhelming at first, and I didn't get to see as many authors as I would have liked, but I still had an absolute blast. Well, guess it's time to get this wrap-up, um, wrapped up!

So the momentum I gained the last two months apparently didn't carry over into this month. Oops. Actually, I thought I had posted a review, but it apparently didn't schedule and stayed in my drafts. Dang. Next month will be better!

Release Day Blast: This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready

This Side of Salvation is officially out in the world! I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this early and let me tell you, this book is AMAZING! So check out some fun stuff Jeri has going on for the launch of her newest novel, including giveaways, interviews and more. Happy reading!

This Side of Salvation

by Jeri Smith-Ready
Everyone mourns differently. When his older brother was killed, David got angry. As in, fist-meets-someone-else’s-face furious. But his parents? They got religious. David’s still figuring out his relationship with a higher power, but there’s one thing he does know for sure:  The closer he gets to new-girl Bailey, the better, brighter, happier, more he feels.

Then his parents start cutting all their worldly ties in to prepare for the Rush, the divine moment when the faithful will be whisked off to Heaven…and they want David to do the same. David’s torn. There’s a big difference between living in the moment and giving up his best friend, varsity baseball, and Bailey—especially Bailey—in hope of salvation.

But when he comes home late from prom, and late for the Rush, to find that his parents have vanished, David is in more trouble than he ever could have imagined…

It's the End of the Month As We Know It: February 2014

Hey you guys! This wrap-up is quite overdo... oops! Sorry about that! Better late than never though, right? You may have noticed a little bit of a change here on She Dreams in Fiction. Well, maybe it's not such a little change, but anyway. I changed up the layout and design of the blog! It took me a while to come up with something I liked well enough to actually apply it, but I think it's nice. I wanted something a little easier to maneuver around and something that looked a bit more clean. I don't know that I'm 100% happy with the header design, but I think I do like the rest. Share your thoughts below!

Other than a different look for the blog, I've been busy reading and trying to get those reviews written. I have a tendency to write notes on random bits of paper when I finish a book, which has proven to be dangerous. I lost my review notes for Mister Max: The Book of Lost Things for ages! I am happy to say, I finally found them and that was the first review I posted for the month. I have since learned my lesson and I now carry a notebook with me wherever I go. Just in case. So what else have I been up to besides being a total space-cadet? Let me show you!

Last month I got four reviews done, this month I wrote up five! Crazy! Crazy, but super exciting. Woo hoo!

Blog Tour: Ungifted by Kelly Oram (Review + Giveaway)


Welcome to the blog tour for Ungifted by Kelly Oram! Thanks go out to Good Choice Reading Blog Tours and Kelly for getting this tour going. Be sure to follow the tour by clicking the banner above or going to the highlight post I shared right here. For my stop, I get to share my review! Let's do this, shall we?

Ungifted by Kelly Oram
ebook: 342 pages
Publisher: Bluefields
Expected Publication: March 2014
Age Level: Young Adult
Source: eARC provided by author
Even though her father is running for President of the United States, Grace St. Claire is as normal a girl as they come. She’s clumsy, shy, and an outcast among her peers. She even manages to nearly die in a freak accident in front of the entire school. But when Grace survives a vampire attack she quickly learns that she is anything but ordinary.

There’s something about human Grace that has all the supernaturals around her going crazy. Her best friend’s brother suddenly wants to date her. Her worst enemy has sworn to protect her even against her wishes. Someone with very powerful magic wants her dead, and the vampire that attacked her has developed an obsession with making her his eternal mate.

In order to survive—and not as Count Dracula’s undead bride—Grace dives head first into the terrifying world of the supernatural. She teams up with a charming but mysterious warlock who strolled into town causing trouble and spouting stories of a Prophesy and Chosen One that looks exactly like Grace. Together they must figure out why Grace is different, who wants her dead, how she’s connected to the Chosen One, and who they can really trust.

Review: Chameleon by Kelly Oram

Chameleon by Kelly Oram
e-book: 356 pages
Publisher: Bluefields
Release Date: 25 June 2013
Age Level: Young Adult
Source: Purchased
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes and Noble | IndieBound
Now in paperback!
For small-town rebel Dani Webber magic and monsters are no more real than the Easter Bunny… until the day she accidentally stops time. Dani quickly discovers that not only do supernaturals exist, but she herself is one of them. This is great news for her life-long best friend Russ, who can finally come clean about his own supernatural status and his undying love for her. Before the two can start to enjoy the long overdue relationship, Dani is taken by a powerful council of supernaturals who believe she is the Chosen One destined to save them from extinction.

As if being kidnapped and expected to save the world isn’t bad enough, an ancient prophecy warns of the Chosen One’s dark nature: “Only the truest love will keep her an agent for good.” The council believes they know who this “true love” is and, unfortunately, that person isn’t Russ. The mysterious, powerful and devastatingly handsome Seer is the last person Dani wants in her life, but when she starts having visions of a horrific future, she has no one else to turn to for help.

Soon Dani finds herself torn between two very different boys with two very different opinions of whom she can trust. With the visions getting worse and time running out, Dani is forced to put aside her feelings and work with both the Seer and Russ before an ancient evil is unleashed upon the earth.

Chameleon is a very unique story full of action, adventure, mystery, love and heaps of confusion and teen angst. In short, I really liked it! Since my stop on the blog tour for the sequel, Ungifted, is tomorrow, I thought it best to quickly let you know a few of my rambling thoughts about book one. So on with the show!
