Jorie and the Golden Key by A. H. Richardson

Hey everyone! A few weeks ago you may remember that I read the first book in this series 'Jorie and the Magic Stones'. The author was kind enough to send me a copy of the second book in the series to read as well. In the previous book we saw Jorie, a young woman from the human realm travel to the magical world where dragons rule the skies. She and her friend Rufus were tasked with retrieving the magic stones that would grant any who hold them the power to rule over the world. At the end of their adventure Jorie returned to the world and left the stones in the hands of the Great Wizard who promised to protect them from the Dark Lord. I enjoyed the first book so I jumped at the chance to read the continuation of Jorie's story. The cover of the book is amazing and the colours jump out at you right away. If you are someone who judges a book by its cover this is a great one to start with. Let me tell you a bit about it: Jorie and Rufus are once again called back to the m

Underneath: A Merfolk Tale by M. N. Arzu

Hey everyone. This week I finished reading this book that the author was kind enough to send to me. My first thoughts were that it was going to be another book about mermaids that I really had no interest in. Thankfully I am open to giving books a chance because this was nothing that I could have expected. The whole book shoots between different points of view of all people involved in one event. Since there are so many important points of view I'll just give a summary of each persons goal throughout the book, instead of a summary: A man walking along a beach one morning finds a man washed up on the shore with severe wounds to his body. The man calls police but notices that something about the man isn't right. Before he is taken away he takes a video with his phone of the half man, half fish, he found. From here the story takes off. The 'Merman' is then quickly passed into the hands of scientists who quickly try to determine what he is. Among the scientists there

Releasing the Demons by L. D. Rose

Hey everyone I hope you are having a good week. I missed last week because of work and interviews but I did actually finish a few books that I just didn't get around to writing reviews for. So expect a few in the next coming weeks, on time of course. So this is the first book of two that the author was kind enough to send me. I will be reviewing the second one I just don't know when I'll get the time to finish it. I'll try to get it done in the next month as long as work doesn't get in the way. It's been a while since I've read a sort of romance book with vampires in it. It was nice to read something professionally written in this genre. A lot of people can say that Twilight left a bad taste in their mouth. But this book is by no means Twilight. It is clearly aimed for the adult audience with language and sexual content. Let me tell you a bit about it: In our world Vampires have become known to humans. There is a police force that specifically deals

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

Happy Monday everyone! This is it, the last book in the Harry Potter series. By far the longest and, arguably, the best book in the series. Now that I'm finally finished I wish there were more books to read. I can happily say that I enjoyed this series. For those who have not yet read this series, whether they had seen the movies or not, I would recommend giving this a read. Now that I've finished reading the books I would like to rewatch the movies, even though I know I don't like them as much as the books. Some people may have a different view on this, it's just the way I feel. Let me tell you about it: Dumbledore is dead. The Order of the Phoenix is on the run. The Ministry of Magic has been taken over by Death Eaters. But that doesn't Harry and his friends are going to give up. They finally know what they need to do to kill the Dark Lord, even if it means they can't tell anyone in their families. Harry and the others have decided not to go back to Ho
