Flawed Perfection
Beautifully Flawed, #1
Cassandra Giovanni
Publisher: Show N'ot Tell Publishing
Cover Designer: Gio Design Studios
Release Date: March 7, 2014
Bobby Beckerson was the American All-Star hockey player--he was the spitting image of perfection to his family. Goofy, sweet and undeniably gorgeous, he had everything but the one girl he wanted: River Ahlers.
River Ahlers is successful in everything but love. She's been in love with Adam Beckerson since they were kids. Worst of all she's stuck right in the middle of the brother's dueling over everything and anything, and she doesn't even know she's the ultimate prize.
Adam Beckerson was a boy with a guitar, a smile that sunk girl's hearts and a stone wall around his own. He was anything but perfect, and no matter how hard he tried he was nothing compared to Bobby. Sweet, damaged, with boyish good-looks, nobody thought Adam loved anyone but himself.
Bobby loved River, River loved Adam and Adam only loved himself--or so everyone thought. Then one night everything changes, and as it threatens to destroy everyone involved a tragedy strikes that will break them all...
GENRE: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Darkness comes as a new power rises in Angrääl. The Dark Knight has betrayed the Gods and stolen the Sword of Truth, trapping them in heaven. With the power of the sword he can reshape the world and bring death to all who oppose him.

Only one thing stands between the darkness and the liight: Gewey Stedding. Only he has the power to stand against the oncoming storm.

Only he can mend the world.  But only if he can discover his power....

The Plateau: Voices of the Earth GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY of The Plateau: Voices of the Earth by Maureen Dudley!!

Hey y'all! I have another giveaway for you guys! This time we have a book by the lovely Maureen Dudley called The Plateau: Voices of the Earth. Sounds fascinating, no?:)

I have an interview coming up sometime with Maureen herself, as well as a possible Q&A in my Goodreads group Book Junkies! Stay tuned!

In the meantime, let's see what this particular novel is about, shall we?

What if you have half of a second to stop the extinction of the human race? What if that pivotal day to save humanity depends on you saving your own life? Catherine's life and humanity's continued existence depend on her ability and willingness to believe in an altered future timeline with a colony of Earth inhabitants. It couldn't come at a worse time. Catherine's father dies unexpectedly. The pressure of her research and advocacy work adds dead weight to her life's precarious tipping points. Catherine's losing battles includes sleep deprivation. Sleep eludes her, because when it does come, she finds herself repeatedly dreaming about standing on the same high plateau with her greyhound dog Addy, surrounded by plants and animals and insects, and then poof! The living landscape transforms into ash.

We have two copies up for grabs! The giveaway will be running for two weeks, ending on Saturday, August 29th. Just drop a comment with your name and email address to enter!

Octavian Nothing, Vol. 2: The Kingdom on the Waves by M.T. Anderson

Title: Octavian Nothing, Vol. 2: The Kingdom on the Waves
Author: M.T. Anderson
Published: October 2008 by Candlewick Press
Genre: Historical Fiction
Reviewer: Hannah

Synopsis:

Fearing a death sentence, Octavian and his tutor, Dr. Trefusis, escape through rising tides and pouring rain to find shelter in a British-occupied Boston. Sundered from all he knows--the College of Lucidity, the rebel cause--Octavian hopes to find safe harbor. Instead, he is soon to learn of Lord Dunmore's proclamation offering freedom to slaves who join the counterrevolutionary forces.

Review:

This is the second installment in M.T. Anderson's historical fiction "series" (only two books) Octavian Nothing. I've already reviewed the first book, which was stellar. Normally, when reviewing a series, I just review one book and leave it at that. Anything more would be just a reiteration of what was already said.

Not so in this case. Both the first and second Octavian Nothing books are absolutely stunning. M.T. Anderson is one of the most talented authors in the world today, and in my opinion, of all time. His vocabulary is superb, he never pulls cheap tricks or cuts corners; his characters are brought to life like none other I've seen before. Every sentence that Octavian writes is pure poetry--the absolute greatness of this novel vastly surpasses most young adult, and for that matter, adult fiction I've ever read.

I could gush endlessly about how amazing this piece of work is, how incredible an addition to American literature it is. I'd love for this rather obscure novel to get the recognition it deserves. It's more than mere entertainment, and should never be viewed as such. It is, without a doubt, a fascinating, thought-provoking, absolutely stunning masterpiece.
