Salmon Leaves Blog Banner (8)

Today, I am delighted to host the Blog Tour organized by Favourite Pages Book Club for The Opal Amulet.

Fourteen year old Emberly Tollens doesn’t dream often but when she does its never a good sign, especially when its the same dream. Some nights she would dream of the sweet nothingness of time. Other nights the voices would get louder, the running faster, and the staff colder. Ice cold. But this is just the beginning of her problems.

Things get even stranger when she finds a dangerously beautiful opal necklace lying on the ground at school. Not strange at all. And definitely not strange when your once kind of nice teacher turns into a fire-breathing creature from the past, right?

Writing : 4/5
OVERALL RATING : 4/5

Grant Beagan isn’t looking for trouble.

He’s just an ordinary teenager who likes astronomy, video games, and keeping his mom happy… or at least, happy enough. But everything changes for Grant when, by a twist of fate, he stumbles into a magical world very different from his own, a world filled with breathtaking wonders and amazing abilities, known as the World of the Lit. It is a world hidden in plain view, right in front of the rest of us (aka “the Unlit”), but most of us only catch fleeting glimpses of the magic it contains. Overnight, Grant finds himself standing face to face with bizarre creatures, becoming a member of a complex magical society, and best of all, having his own dormant channeling abilities “lit” by a very special recruiter, called a Flame.

As Grant begins to experience his new life as a member of the Lit—becoming a student of magic, exploring mind-bending new locations, and meeting extraordinary new mages of different nationalities (and species!)—he can’t imagine ever going back to his old life in the Unlit world. That is, until he learns of a dangerous conflict arising in his midst. Before long, Grant finds himself embroiled in a battle between the Finder, a powerful type of mage that hasn’t been seen in five hundred years, and the Controller, a dangerous being with the power to exert control over the minds of others. To emerge unscathed, Grant will need to hone his channeling skills, build upon the powers he’s gained, face his deepest fears, solve a series of unusual mysteries, and apply the wisdom of the Mage Code, a set of seven principles left behind by the previous Finder centuries ago.

Featuring memorable characters, fun and imaginative locations, uplifting themes, and a rich set of magical abilities, the first book in the Grant Beagan series unveils the extraordinary world of the Lit, a society of mages that is concealed from—yet intricately intertwined within—the everyday lives we lead.

ARC REVIEW : Not Like the Movies (Waiting for Tom Hanks #2) by Kerry Winfrey

Salmon Leaves Blog Banner (1)

RATINGS :-
Plot : 4/5
Characters : 4/5
Writing : 4.5/5
OVERALL RATING : 4.5/5

Genre : Romance, Comedy, Contemporary

Date of Release: July 7, 2020

“Maybe you need to accept that your life is a rom-com, whether you want it to be or not.”

What happens when your life is a rom-com…but you don’t even believe in true love?

Chloe Sanderson is an optimist, and not because her life is easy. As the sole caregiver for her father, who has early onset Alzheimer’s, she’s pretty much responsible for everything. She has no time—or interest—in getting swept up in some dazzling romance. Not like her best friend Annie, who literally wrote a rom-com that’s about to premiere in theaters across America…and happens to be inspired by Chloe and Nick Velez, Chloe’s cute but no-nonsense boss.

As the buzz for the movie grows, Chloe reads one too many listicles about why Nick is the perfect man, and now she can’t see him as anything but Reason #2: The Scruffy-Bearded Hunk Who’s Always There When You Need Him. But unlike the romance Annie has written for them, Chloe isn’t so sure her own story will end in a Happily Ever After.

Plot : 4/5
Characters : 4.5/5
Writing : 4/5
OVERALL RATING :4.5 /5

Genre: Literary Fiction, Contemporary

“There are instances when the truth suddenly pitches at us with an undeniable impact. Our buried feelings come to the fore due to a trigger in our environment.”

What happens when the skeins of life of 16 diverse Indian women, aged 25 to 67, get entwined when they travel to Spain and Portugal in an all-women’s tour? With a galaxy of identifiable characters from modern urban India depicted with light-hearted mirth in a travel environment, the novel explores serious issues, such as the quest for an independent identity and economic independence, the violence within and without our homes, the loneliness of old age and the need for constructive channelization of youthful energy. Spanning events across a little more than a year, it depicts how self-expression and a supportive environment trigger a cataclysmic effect and stimulate the women to realize their dreams.

OVERALL RATING : 4/5

Genre : Contemporary, Romance, Fiction

WILL SHE FIND HER LOVE BEYOND DESIRE?

It’s been nine years since Arman left her, and Rhia manages her life just fine with a dream job and her own place, finally free from family drama. She turned her life and took control of it, but the only part of her life that she couldn’t control was love. She couldn’t love anyone because she is heartbroken. As she had found and lost her love on the same day, and when Arman left her forever without even a goodbye, but with just two letters both addressed to her, one ‘To My Best Friend’ and other ‘To My Girlfriend’ and a ring, which she still holds as a reminder – a proof of broken love.

Rhia and her friends are enjoying the wedding celebration at Mumbai’s luxurious hotel. Everything is great, and everyone is enjoying it until she sees Arman. He steps through the gate after long nine years along with his 3-year-old son, leaving her shocked and speechless. They are about to spend three days together under the same roof, and she is all worried, angry and pleased, again all at the same time. She wants to know why he left without a goodbye; it’s all she wants to know.
So, will she finally get answers? Will Arman finally say why he left her, and why he kissed her if he was about to leave?

Book Review: Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Plot : 4/5

Writing : 4.5/5
OVERALL RATING : 4.5/5

Genre : Young Adult, Fiction,Contemporary Romance, Re-telling

Anything can happen once upon a con…

When geek girl Elle Wittimer sees a cosplay contest sponsored by the producers of Starfield, she has to enter. First prize is an invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. Elle’s been scraping together tips from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck behind her stepmother’s back, and winning this contest could be her ticket out once and for all—not to mention a fangirl’s dream come true.

Teen actor Darien Freeman is less than thrilled about this year’s ExcelsiCon. He used to live for conventions, but now they’re nothing but jaw-aching photo sessions and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Federation Prince Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the diehard Starfield fandom has already dismissed him as just another heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, closet nerd Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.
