SO WHAT NEXT?!!

Here I sit behind a keyboard stareing at a blank screen, biting my nail in anxious thought. I have so many books to review but I don't which one to choose first! So while I come up with a list, let me know what you guys have in mind!



 

Tis the year of sex and hot men... Can you handle it?

It is the start of a new year... Fresh Authors, new books.


 Personally I'm more excited about the fact that I have now found time to dedicate to Reviews. Between the ups and downs of my chaotic life, books have been my constant. Don't think I haven't been up-to-date with the who is who of the book world. I've been keeping my time busy with the likes of H.M. Ward and J.S. Cooper... Lets not forget the formidable Samantha Towle. This past year was a great year for Indie authors. I'M glad I could enjoy them and NOW it's time you should too. Everyone should have the chance to experience steamy romances in their prime! It is the era for Erotic Dominance! The heat will be so hot you will be begging for a cold shower. So be warned my pretties... This will be a ..bumpy.. ride.


 

COULD IT BE REAL???

Yes! It's is true!
I have decided to get back into the book reviewing business. With being out of training and sitting around at home, I found that I don't really have anything fun to do. Then I realized... yes I do! Book reviewing used to be one of my favorite things to do before joining the army. The Excitement, Thrill, Romance... I loved it all, and reading gave it to me hard! That is why I'm also deciding to change up the look of this site. Spruce it up a bit. Rather than be a YA book reviewing site, I'm turning it into a Smut reviewing site. Yup you got that right. Don't worry, I will still stand by the eclectic choice of books I used to use. I never try to disappoint fellow readers. I completely understand what it's like when a review says one thing, and the book turns out to be something chewed and shitted out by a five year old. Not cool.
Anyway, keep an  eye out and I can't wait to give you the new and improved!

As much as I love being in this imaginary world with you guys, I have to bid my goodbyes for the next 7 months. I will be out fighting for my country (USA). Yes, yes I joined the Army, and I damn proud of it. Please look out for me 7 months from now or I will possibly be starting a new blog. Thanks for following me and see you later!!!!

Spunky's Fave- Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel

Description-
"Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you...no one." 
Those were some of Rhode's last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face. 

It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste. Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust. 

I never expected to fall in love with someone else that wasn't Rhode.But Justin was...daring. Exciting. More beautiful than I could dream.I never expected to be sixteen again...then again, I never expected my past to come back and haunt me...







Review-

This book would have to be one of my personal favorites. It has nothing you would expect from a Young Adult writer to write about. When you first pick up the book you get that Anne Rice feeling with it. Like there is a maturity that does not really belong in a YA novel but as you get more along into it, you realize that it fits all to well. Infinite Days is not your average vampire story. There is of course love, drama, magic, power, and a hell of a lot of feminism. Lenah had all the power in the palm of her hand. A powerful vampire, she was considered one of her kind until Rhode sacrificed himself to turn her human. Stuck in a private school, she has to learn how to transition from the killing machine she once was to accepting her past and trying to move on with her life. Most of this book really is about Lenah finding herself and her true humanity. After living without a soul for so long, she was questioning basically everything she was. 
   I feel that this is a story that many people would enjoy with it's romantic element and heart breaker, Justin. What's the point in reading a vampire story about redemption if there is not steamy action? It would just get boring and feel like if you are reading the world's most unexciting biography. This book comes highly recommended and it gets the Spunky seal of approval.

Biggest Apology Ever!

I know it's been a while since I've posted but it comes with a great reason. This book junkie has enlisted for the Army Reserves. Exciting right? But I will try to put stuff up on my off time. For there are so many books I am dying to tell you guys about. Absolutely delish! Also for right now, I will not be accepting requests from authors since I have a shit load of books to still get through. Thanks for following me!

Blog Tour & Giveaway/Interview: Seers by Heather Frost

Description-
For Kate Bennet, surviving the car wreck that killed her parents means big changes and even bigger problems. As she begins to see auras and invisible people, Kate must learn to trust Patrick O'Donnell, a handsome Guardian, or risk her life being overrun with Demons. She soon realizes that both she and her heart are in big-time trouble.




   Since I am horrible, I  judge  books by their covers (presentation IS key in life). But who hasn't? I bet if you walk into a bookstore and see that pretty glittery laminated book with this eye-catching attractions, you would be curious about it too! But with this book, between the title and the cover, I was just a bit confused. When I had read Seers, I had expected this real cool SciFi book, that would be sort of similar to The Pretties or The Host. I of course was wrong. In fact this book is about angels. 
   After Kate lost her parents in a freak accident, she developed powers that allowed her to read other people's auras. I had kind of thought it was a sucky power. If it would have been something more like being able to determine when people are going to die, or even access to the "underworld", I think that would have been cooler.
   But anyways, Kate has a total loser of a boyfriend. The minute that Gabriel even made eye  contact with Kate, the BF should have had some alarms in his head go off or something. I mean there is a gut undressing your girl with his eyes. What do you do?
A). Shake his hand
B). Ask to hang out with him
C). Punch him in the face and tell him to go eyeball someone else's girlfriend.
I personally would go for C.
The author does deserve her props though. For a Debut novel, she  did what alot of seasoned writers fail to do. Write a good book people (other than the authors themselves) would like. Though she did not do too well in trying to make this fiction story seem a bit more realistic, it did put a good picture in your head. Angels and all. 




Interview with author


I had the honor of interviewing the author Heather Frost! It was amazing that she actually wanted to answer my questions and was just as equally enthusiastic!



Coming up with ideas for writing a good book is never easy. Where did yours come from?
    My stories are usually born from asking “what if?” questions. In the case of Seers there was a lot of that, but I also used some more personal input; something that I don't normally do. I've had a lot of experiences with death over the past few years—one particularly trying—and so it only makes sense that the afterlife became something I often wondered about. I have strong Christian beliefs concerning life after death, but still I liked to imagine the possibilities. When I realized that I'd really like to write a story about immortals, deciding to pursue the afterlife idea was the natural thing to do. I brainstormed a lot, and the result of that is Seers.


Was writing the book difficult?
   Writing Seers was one of the easiest things I've ever done. Everything came to me so easily; the scenes were vivid, the plot was clear, and the characters were so alive. I never had writers block while creating the book, which is definitely a new record for me. I usually struggle with that a few times in any story I write. If there was a difficult part, it would have been writing in first person. I'd always written in the third person perspective up to this point, and so when I started writing Seers I wrote the first hundred pages in third person. But it was lacking something, and so I decided to face my fears and try writing it in first person—and I'm really glad I did. The story wouldn't be the same without Kate's voice front and center.


Is there anything you would make different about how you wrote it?
    I would have liked to make the book longer. I would have loved to delve more into Guardian life, look more closely at other Seers, and further explore the Demon world. But I guess that's what the rest of the trilogy is for.




As a Writer, do you have any words of wisdom to future authors?
    I've talked with lots of aspiring authors that write only because they want to be published. In fact, many of them confessed that they don't really like writing at all. They have this delusion that writing a book will automatically make them rich and famous. So my advice would be, write for selfish reasons. Write because you love a good story.  If you approach writing in this way, rejections will become a minor bump in the road; after all, whether it's accepted or not, you'll still be holding a finished story that you love, and had a good time writing.



Is there a sequel in the makes after this book?
   There certainly is! I'm currently in the re-writing stage for the second book in The Seers Trilogy.




Are you going to write Adult books in the future or are you going to stick with YA?
     I'm still planning to work with YA, but I have some ideas for more Adult stuff. I guess we'll see where my imagination takes me.




When would you expect for your next book to come out should you be writing one?
    I'm hoping that by next year Demons, the sequel to Seers, will be released.




Well just like many others, I will be on the look out for Demons next year. Thanks for being a part of Spunkyreads and hopefully I will get you back on here soon! So now everyone, put it on your TBR lists and keep on the look out for it!
