I recently read an ARC of Chosen Fool by Scarlet Dawn. Let me give you a little background information first. This is the fourth book in the Forever Evermore series. It is New Adult series that does feature sex, drinking, cursing, etc.
Review: This book is unlike anything else I have ever read, even more so than the others in the series. It still had many of the same elements of the series, but it was just… Very different. It was an excellent book, though, one that I definitely recommend. I read this straight, barely stopping for anything except an occasional snack break, and I think I finished it in about eight hours or so. I stayed up until 3 AM on a school night to finish this book. It was that good. I highly recommend it, especially if you have already read the rest of the series. And if you haven’t, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?! Go. Read them. Now!

I have way too many posts apologizing for forgetting to post on here. I know there’s no excuse. Life just not only caught up with me, but dunked me in the ocean and tried to drown me. Not to worry, though. I have been thrown a life preserver and I am okay! Now, on to the point of this post:
The Libby Garrett Intervention! This book released October 24 and I am super late on posting my review, especially since I got an ARC to review early. Sorry Kelly Oram!!! Anyways, here it goes.
This book is kind of a spin-off of the Avery Shaw Experiment, in the idea that really, it’s a companion novel. And I loved the Avery Shaw Experiment. However, when I read it, I hated Libby as a character, so I didn’t really know what to expect from her book. I didn’t want to read it because of Libby. I wanted to read it to try to get more Avery and Grayson. I expected it to be okay, but just okay. However, I loved it. Kelly Oram made me love Libby as a character, and of course Adam is amazing. This book was funny, but it deals with some tough issues too, specifically self-image and unhealthy behaviors, such as addictions (even if those addictions aren’t to drugs or alcohol). In all, this is a great book and I am lucky to have gotten to read it. So go and enjoy it!

It’s time! Are you ready to see Timekeeper Falling’s cover and read the blurb? Get ready, get set… Go!
Timekeeper Falling’s Offical Blurb: One day changed everything. Once, Iris Ankea lived a normal, relatively safe life. Now she’s on the run, hiding from a virtually unstoppable group of fallen angels intent on murdering her solely for her birthright as the Timekeeper, the only person powerful enough to defeat them. She must garner support and build an army, preparing for the battle to save, or end, the world, all while trying to stay hidden and alive. Danger lurks in every shadow, but the biggest danger of all may be to her heart. Can Iris Ankea save the world and survive the battle prophesized to kill her, or will Sage Atroxé break her heart and end her life?

This is starting to be a regular thing, but, I am very sorry I’ve been silent for so long. On the bright side, I do still update my facebook author page, so be sure to check there for info. My excuses for not posting here are school and forgetfulness, but since those are not good excuses, please accept my apologies.
So, on to updates:
1) I know have sign-ups for my newsletter here on this website, so if you want all the newest information from me, and even the occasional giveaway, be sure to sign-up.
2) I also now have a street team on facebook, so if you would like to help me out by giving me advice and promoting my books, events, giveaways, etc. in exchange for receiving all the content first and receiving free books, swag, etc. let me know.
3) I am revealing the official cover, blurb, and release date for Timekeeper Falling Thursday, October 1. I will be sharing it to my street team tomorrow, though, so if you want to see it first, you may want to join the team.
I hope you all are doing well and I will try very hard to post here more often in the future (but I can’t make any promises). Have a great week, all!
