This week our chosen book to review was Virtue by Amanda Hocking.
Now I have to note, I LOVE Amanda Hocking. I have so much respect for her as a person and a writer. I follow her blog and find her story one of much inspiration, especially for all of you Indie authors out there. So don't take my review as a bash on her as an author, it just wasn't my favorite story of hers. Maybe all of this is unnecessary to say but I don't want anyone to think that just because I didn't care of a specific book, that I dislike the person who wrote it.
With that out of the way, I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend. :)

I am very excited to say that we have a few topics planned out for next week that I think will interest you guys. But you'll just have to stay tuned to hear about them....
I hope everyone has a fantastic and safe weekend!
Until next time,
“Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful- too beautiful for words. Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like magic.
In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.”

I know that some of you contacted me about some comment posting issues and I think (hope) they've been resolved. I may have had some settings that clashed that could have caused the problems, or it could just be those computers out to get me again. Nah, we'll definitely blame it on the computers! ;)
I was pondering having a day of the week where we give little tips for the Nook/ Kindle. Like discussing one thing a week that you can do with your e-reader that doesn't involve reading. Would you guys like to hear more on that?
Be on the look out for M's review post tomorrow on Wings by Aprillynn Pike. I know she's been hard at work to get that ready for you guys!

What is Pottermore?
Pottermore is a website that J.K. Rowling is creating to make all Harry Potter books available digitally for the first time ever. However, the excitement doesn’t stop there: by signing up on Pottermore.com you’re going to be able to have interactive reading experiences with your favorite books through your most treasured moments with Harry and the gang. You’ll also be able to do things such as learn spells, try on the sorting hat to find out which house you belong in, as well as visit Diagon Alley.
So when is Pottermore available?
For the first one million fans to complete their registration, the website will be released on July 30th, the birthday of both Ms. Rowling and Harry himself. Don’t fret if you miss the initial registration though, October is when the site opens to the public.
There are just a couple of bumps in the road…
We will just have to see how all of that plays out but we will definitely have an update as we get closer to October. Until then, what do you think this means for authors? Now that someone has stepped up, put their foot down and cut out the middle man, is it only a matter of time before other writers do the same? What about readers? Is this the hopeful beginning of reasonably priced traditionally published e-books?You’re turn! Respond and let us know what you see coming from all this.-J

We have our very first review up. The book is S.W. Benefiel’s Day of Sacrifice. Everything is still a bit disorganized but we’re hoping to get all that up to snuff here before too long. Also we have our Facebook group set up now! The link for that is:

This is a place where two friends come together for the sake of reading and post reviews. Good, bad or just eh, here is the place you can find honest opinions. Our main focus is the young adult paranormal genre, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see the occasional stray.
With the (awesome) evolution of e-readers there have been so many opportunities for authors to come out, revealing their talent and their stories that they otherwise may not have been heard through traditional publishing. We hope to reveal many new authors as well as shining a light on those more popular.
So check out our reviews, skim through our news and send us an email if you have any questions.
