Grave Mistake by Izzy Shows     

Blair Sheach, is a girl that does not know she has magic or can be more than a poor girl that grew up in the foster care system.  She finds she has many new powers and a few new friends help along a journey she didn’t know she was taking.  The books has necromancers, vampires, demons, and so much more.  I am excited to find this series and I do look forward to reading the next book.   5/5 Stars


THE HIGH ROAD by Ken Hughes

This book was high action and lots of fun to read.  I enjoyed the story of the kids and magic. A street-level urban fantasy is a book type I don’t read much but it that I don’t like them but I just don’t pick them out often.  This book was great.  I think this book is a great start to a series.  *I chose to leave a review after receiving a copy from the author*   4/5 Stars


The Red Grouse Tales by Leslie W P Garland

This book is a collection of mysterious stories that all make a great bit of stories to share with friends or near Halloween.  I enjoyed them all in different ways.  Some gave me chills while reading and other I was caught in the moment.  The author has a great way of story telling and I enjoyed this collection. * I choose to write an honest review after I received this book from the author*  4/5 Stars


A Travel Guide to Murder by David Wright

I love book about serial killers, I think I have said this before.  Every book is different, a different style of killer and law enforcement style is different  in some ways as well.  Every author has new ideas and this book was no exception.  I enjoyed the surprises this book gave.  * I choose to write an honest review for this book given to me by the author*  4/5 Stars


The Flies by Ju Ephraime

What a great ghost story I read close to Halloween!  I loved the cover of this book right away but the story was very captivating.  I felt bad for Jamie Bradshaw as her life was throw into such dismay with a ghost not being helpful along the way.  This book kept me on the edge of my seat wanting more through the whole story.  It was a hard book to put down.  * I choose to write a honest review after receiving this book from the author*  5/5 Stars


Absence of Blade by Caitlin Demaris McKenna                                            

I don’t consider that I read a lot of Sci-Fi but I did enjoy this book.  It was a little different from what I expected but that was a good thing.  Strange new world and great interesting characters made this book for me.  This book reminded me a little of Star wars and I am not a big Star Wars fan but I found the differences in the this book kept me reading on to find out what would happen next.  * I choose to write an honest review after receiving the book from the author*  4/5 Stars


Just Things by Erin Lee

This book was pretty good.  Another serial killer book.  This book was a bit scary because this killer was very interesting and changing his MO and who he kills and many other things that make this book fun to read.  I enjoyed it very much in the end.  4/5 Stars


The Ghost Files 5 by Apryl Baker               

Awesome book!  Still a great series and I can’t wait to see where the author takes this series next.  I also can’t for the movie!!!  I love this series and all the ghosts and demons and many other great things.  I really like Office Dan and all Mattie’s friends!  Great book again Apryl!!!!   5/5 Stars

Cruisin’ through books cause books make life worth living with Aly returns!

Hey guys! Long time no see! The good news is I finally have free time! Yay! That means I’ve been hard at work, finishing editing books, so I can release new ones. It also means that soon I’ll be starting my personal write everyday challenge, so keep an eye out for that!

Anyways, we’re going to try something a little different with Aly’s reviews. I’d love feedback on the format from you guys, so feel free to drop a comment below! Without further ado, I give you the reviews! (Aly actually posts these reviews on her own site before I get them. If you want to see them hot off the press, stop by her website, I know she would love it!)

Alchemy by Alison Gardiner     

I felt this was a good book.  The magical island of Eridor was an exciting new world for me.  I loved the characters and the story as well.  I think kids and adults alike will enjoy this story.  * I received a free copy of this book and this is my honest review*  5/5 Stars

Rebel Rising by Amanda J. Clay

Finally the next book in this series!  I enjoyed the first book and was waiting (well maybe not too patiently) for the next in the series.  It was worth the wait!  This book has lots of great moments for me in it and I was back in the action and excitement.  I can’t wait for the next book!  * I received this book free and this is my honest review*  5/5 Stars

The Inherited Series by Lily Burlington

Who does want to marry a prince?  I enjoyed this book very much from a normal every day girl to marrying a prince is like a few movies I have heard of but a great book!  I loved it!  * I received this book free and this is my honest review*  5/5 Stars

Girl of Glass by Megan O’Russell

I really enjoy Megan’s books!  This book was great.  Living in a dome would be something I could not imagine but with the help of Megan I could see it in my mind.  This book was exciting and the characters were believable for me.  I was drawn into this world and loved it all.  * I received this book free and this is my honest review*  5/5 Stars

Why Can’t My Life Be a Romance Novel by Melinda R. Cordell

A cute short read.  I remember my first crush.  This book was very sweet and a good quick read for me.   It bring back memories of me trying to get the “right” guy to like me in high school and it never worked out for me.   But you get older and taste in men sometime change.  * I received is book free and this is my honest review*  3/5 Stars

Deep Dark Secrets by Sarra Cannon

What is a Spiritwalker?   This book made me ask this question is the beginning and I am still wondering.  The book is very good and I really like this author.  I can’t wait to read the next book, but I hope the next few books in the series help me understand what a Spiritwalker is better.  The author touched on this a little bit in this book but we learned who Marayah and Jordan were and I enjoyed that about this book but now I hope the author will delve into Spiritwalker legacy in the next books more, I feel I want to know more.  But this book was very exciting and I found myself not wanting to put this book down.  This was another great book from Sarra.    5/5 Stars

Daughter of Darkness by Raye Wagner     

This book was short only 90 pages but great!  I have to be honest at first I was a little unsure of the book.  I love the cover it caught my eye but it was great!  Dahlia’s mother is Eris.  Yes, a demigod story but this one is different than what I have read before.   I like Hercules and Wonder Women but I didn’t expect to meet Dahlia and her new friends.  Dahlia has a hard life at first but she finds a few people she can care about.  You should take a look at this book it won’t take you long to fall in love with a new author!  At least this author was new for me.  5/5 Stars

Still tryingto help indie authors. #SupportIndieAuthors #BookwormsUnite

Hey guys, I know it’s been awhile since I posted, a ton of life happening so fast right now. Anyways, even with the busy life, I’m still all about that indie life.

So when a friend wrote me, asking if I could place a post for her, and one that will help indie authors, I had to make time to post. Without further ado, I’ll let Christina take over from here.


Hello there! Are you a fan of free books? Do you subscribe to all the big name newsletters to fuel your reading habit? You do? Great! As an indie author who uses those services to spread the word, I can’t thank you enough. But you know, those newsletters are pretty strict and don’t take every book that comes along, which means there are a lot of indie gems that you might miss.
Which is why I’ve created Bookworms Discover. We’re not a daily feed. We’re a new, once a month free book site that will focus on finding the best books you’ve never read. Beginning in January of 2018, we will post up to 30 free books on the first Thursday of every month. Yep, I know, that’s a few months away,but we’ve got some other events we’ll be promoting, and right now we’ve got a contest to name our mascot!
If this sounds interesting, click on the link below and check out our “For Readers” page for a detailed explanation of what we’re all about. While you’re there, we’d love for you to subscribe, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks for reading!

The King’s Peace by Kevin Hammond

This book reminds me a little of a PC game I used to play called “King’s Quest”.  It had swords and sorcery and more.  There is, of course, good and evil in the book, what story is not complete with some form of this? This story is much different from the game but I enjoyed it just as much if not more.  I was on this good thief’s side through out the book.  This story grabbed a hold of me from the beginning and kept me reading more.  * I received this book from author—this is my honest review*  5/5
