Authors Are Rockstars: J.K. Rock

Aug 24, 2013

Rockers and rollers, I am very honored to be a part of the 2nd Annual Authors Are Rockstars tour! And today I have not one, but two author rockstars: J.K. Rock, the sisters-in-law duo of Joanne and Karen Rock, and the creators of Camp Boyfriend!

While I can't say that they wear leather and put three bottles of hairspray in their hair every week (or do they?), I can say that J.K. Rock are total rockstars. For one, they are great at socializing and interacting with people on Twitter, which I just love. They also rock out on Pinterest, where they have a Rock Star Bloggers' Hall of Fame! If that's not enough, Joanne and Karen are just so stinkin' nice, and you can't help but want to be friends with them! Therefore, I'm stoked to have them on the blog today as they discuss a fun camp related topic. Oh, and did I mention that there's a totally rocking giveaway? So stick around, my fellow reading rockers, and prepare to ROCK ON with J.K. Rock!

I first heard about this book when the cover was revealed on Icey Books, and since then I've been wanting to read it. The cover grabs my eye, and the synopsis is AWESOME--I mean, it's set in the future, and it's a retelling of THUMBELINA? (I think. Or something like that.) YES, YES, YES. Somebody get this book in my hands!

Review: Vanish by Sophie Jordan

Aug 15, 2013

Title: Vanish
Author: Sophie Jordan
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publishing Date: September 6, 2011
Pages/Format: 294, Hardcover
An impossible romance.
Bitter rivalries.
Deadly choices.

To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.

Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?

I'll be honest: historical fiction isn't really my thing. (And neither is history itself.) However, every once in awhile a book comes along that's set in a time period I don't mind: Anna Godbersen's The Luxe series in 1900; Jillian Larkin's The Flappers trilogy in the 1920s. Today, I happen to be waiting on a book set in London in 1909, and with a premise that sounds interesting. It may be mad, and it may be wicked, but I'm hoping reading this will not be a folly. (I think I used that word correctly...)

Sometimes I need a book that's cute and fun, and this one is currently sitting on my Kindle, just waiting to be read at the right moment. It sure sounds promising and amazing...
