Unspeakable Truths

Author: Alice Tribue

Release Date: September 16, 2014

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Everything I ever learned about fairy-tales was a fucking lie…

Four years ago, my life was everything I wanted it to be: I had everything I wanted, everything I needed, in my best friend and newly wedded husband—Tyler.

Yet, hours after we said “I do,” I lost him.


The dreams we’d shared, the future we’d planned—all of our hopes and desires, were ripped away in mere seconds.

And now, four years later, my life still feels like a hopeless eternity.

So, I guess it’s quite fitting that the last person I want to hear from is currently standing at my front door.

He wants to tell me the truth about that night, he wants to be my new knight in shining armor, but the thing is…

He was the best man…

Review: “Forsaken” by Kristen Day


(Daughters of the Sea #1)

Author: Kristen Day

Publishing Date: September 22, 2014 (first published July 18, 2012)

Publisher: Self-Published

Genre: Young Adult (Mythology)

Once you’ve been touched by darkness, it never leaves you…

Abandoned by her parents as an infant; seventeen year old Hannah spent her childhood wading through countless foster families until being adopted by the Whitmans three years ago. 

Unfortunately, Atlanta’s high society wasn’t quite ready for Hannah…or the strange events that plague her.
Chilling visions of murder, unexplained hallucinations, and a dark, mysterious guy who haunts her nightmares all culminate to set in motion a journey of self-discovery that will challenge everything she’s ever believed; not to mention her sanity. 

Sent to live at The House of Lorelei on Bald Head Island, NC for ‘kids like her’, Hannah quickly realizes things are not what they seem. Her fellow ‘disturbed’ teens are actually the descendents of mythical Sea Gods and Goddesses. And so is she.

But when Finn, the ghost from her dreams, appears in the flesh; her nightmares become reality and her dark visions begin coming true. Inexplicably drawn to him, she can’t deny the dangerous hold he has on her heart. The deadly secrets he harbors will ultimately test her courage and push the boundaries of her love. 

She must decide if she is ready to embrace the ancient legend she is prophesied to be a part of. The fate of all the descendents will forever depend upon it.


My Review:

(Reviewed September 2012. Reposting for Re-release of Forsaken)

I received a complimentary copy of “Forsaken: A Daughter of the sea Novel” in an exchange for a honest review for the Blog Tour back in 2012 with YANR (now known as Mark My Words Book Publicity)

Every once in awhile I find myself diving into a book that takes me away from the paranormal romance genre or erotica genre. There is just some days I need a break and when I read the description of “Forsaken”, I knew it was a book I was going to enjoy reading. These are the kind of books, I would dive into as a pre-teen or teen to get away from the drama of homework. (Yes I said drama…because homework was crazy and still is today)

Forsaken is about a girl, Hannah, who was orphaned as a infant and forced to go through several foster families until one family finally adopted her. Hannah has never felt like she belonged into the high society of her adopted family and certain events have started to happen to her lately. Her adopted-mother is making her see several doctors to find out why Hannah is having black outs and acting strange. She even swears that this one guy in her nightmares keeps re-appearing and warning her about certain things. One day though, she is forced to see a doctor that may know what is going on with Hannah. Hannah then is told to go away to a boarding school which she will fit in at more comfortably.

When Hannah is sent to The House of Lorelei, she never fathomed that the guy in her nightmares was actually real and he saves her on the first day at the House of Lorelei. She also never believed that her nightmares were actually coming true.

While Hannah is there, she starts to realize that the House Of Lorelei is very special and so are the people who go there, including her.
Hannah is about to find out what happened to her real parents and what actually is going on with her. With the help of her new friends, and the guy in her nightmares, she will learn the truth of what she is supposed to do from now on. She will also have to survive because in one of her nightmares she knows someone is out to get her.

My thoughts on Forsaken is that it was a very enjoyable read. I had a hard time putting it down.

Well…it did only take me one day to read, that alone should tell you some thing. =)
I have always been a fan of mythology and this book definitely dived into it a bit with several twists. Kristen Day explains what is going on very well and the story of what happened to Hannah and her parents. I love her take on the sea gods and goddesses and the differences of each of the students and where they fell underneath.

This book is full of mystery, love, and action that will make you want more after reading it. Kristen Day’s writing is fabulous and I cannot wait to see what happens next with the characters. I mean she did leave me hanging at the end, which was a doozy.

My favorite scene is when Hannah goes to the dance. (sorry not giving it away) Let’s just say, I was really happy for her. =) (I was even pondering what was special with her date, Finn)

I recommend this book to anyone who loves the young adult genre and loves mythology. This is a definite read you will enjoy.

Krystal Shannan’s “My Viking Vampire” by Krystal Shannan (Interview/Excerpt) + #Giveaway

MVV Release Tour (horizontal)

Welcome to Book Lovin’ Mamas virtual stop on Krystal Shannan’s My Viking Vampire Blog Tour.


KrystalShannanHeadShot1. Describe yourself using five words.

Snarky, Fun, Loyal, Creative, Compassionate

2. Tell us a little bit about My Viking Vampire and why readers should check it out? 

My Viking Vampire is the first novel in the Sanctuary Texas Series. It follows the romance of Bailey, a human, and Erick, a vampire, while also showing you the futuristic world where the supernaturals have come out of the closet. At least some of them have. I know readers will connect with the struggles that Bailey faces and cheer for her as she finds a way to press on. It’s a story about love and new beginnings.

3. What inspired you to write My Viking Vampire?

I wanted to create a world of my own. Something that was familiar, but different and something where I could make my own rules. I’m not sure one thing exactly inspired MVV. I know it came from a compilation of several different plots I was working on and then they just grew together into this really huge really cool world.–

4. What was your favorite scene to write in My Viking Vampire? (of course without giving too much away)

Hmmm. My favorite scene. I don’t think I can pick just one. The scene where she meets Erick at the beginning, the love scenes are oh so HAWT, and then there’s the scene where Rose enchants her tattoo. That might be one of my favorites. There are so many. It’s hard. But a couple of my favorite little things in the book are the enchanted clothes and the faerie dust.
