ALICE AT WOODSTOCK
Seventeen-year-old Alice’s punk band Mad Cat is primed for its inaugural tour, when the other members—including Alice’s boyfriend—team up and cut her from the band. Humiliated and raging-mad, Alice stashes her guitar in the back of a closet and retreats from both music and social life. But when she falls down a proverbial rabbit hole, landing in the midst of the largest peace-and-music event in history, Alice must confront the question that’s been eating at her all summer: if she isn’t a musician, who is she?

So I got to ask these lovely ladies one question. My question was:
"If you were celebrating your Unbirthday, what would the party look like?"

Kitty - It would be at the beach. I’d make some great gypsy/traveler inspired tents, and place several tables on the sand, with long white billowing tablecloths. I’d string lights above the tables and tie them to poles dug into the sand, forming a “room” without walls. The tabletops would be decorated with shells and flowers and with mason jars filled with sand and candles. I’d also surround the area with lanterns hanging from sticks. One table would have a massive tiered cake decorated with a mermaid and shells. (No candles!) I’d hire a DJ and have a bamboo dance floor on top the sand. Everyone would dance the night away to 80s songs. We’d have BBQ, sweet and tangy with lots of options of side dishes, drink sweet-tea around a fire pit, and once the sun went down, everyone would have fluffy blankets to wrap around their shoulders.

Dawn - First, we’d all go to the bookstore and load up on books. Then, we’d head somewhere quiet where we could all read…erm…not cool? How about a haunted house tour? That’s fun, right?

Shari - A campfire on the beach with my family and close friends. The menu? cold beer, smoked salmon, and the chocolate that was meant for s’mores.

Denise - My unbirthday party would include many healthy but enjoyable things—massages for everyone! Homemade smoothies made to order! A group dance class to some can’t-sit-still music! Everybody leaves my Unbirthday feeling energized and great about themselves, rather than bloated and tired.

Cady - At my Unbirthday party, everyone would be divided into their appropriate Hogwarts house. We’d sit at long oak tables and eat lots of Harry Potter inspired treats. For all the adults in the room, we’d even have House cocktails before playing a game of Harry Potter charades.

So basically, there'd be awesome shenanigans going on. Well count me in!
Tell me in the comments what would your Unbirthday Party look like!

Waiting on Wednesday #27



Grace Mae knows madness. She keeps it locked away, along with her voice, trapped deep inside a brilliant mind that cannot forget horrific family secrets. Those secrets, along with the bulge in her belly, land her in a Boston insane asylum.

When her voice returns in a burst of violence, Grace is banished to the dark cellars where her mind is discovered by a visiting doctor who dabbles in the new study of criminal psychology. With her keen eyes and sharp memory, Grace will make the perfect assistant at crime scenes. Escaping from Boston to the safety of an ethical Ohio asylum, Grace finds friendship and hope, hints of a life she should have had. But gruesome nights bring Grace and the doctor into the circle of a killer who stalks young women. Grace, continuing to operate under the cloak of madness, must hunt a murderer while she confronts the demons in her own past.

In this beautifully twisted historical thriller, Mindy McGinnis, acclaimed author of Not a Drop to Drink and In a Handful of Dust, explores the fine line between sanity and insanity, good and evil—and the madness that exists in all of us.

Had I not read Mindy's previous book beforehand, this cover alone would make me want to read this. Mindy is an amazing writer and I can't wait for this beauty of a book.

Musical Monday #23



Most of you guys know how much I love Peter and his songs, as I've featured one many eons ago. So when I found out he covered this song, I knew I needed to feature it. The song is so powerful in the movie, that it brings shivers whenever I hear it. I love being able to sing along and just putting it on repeat for hours on end. Peter's cover of it makes it just as beautiful as Jennifer made it originally. Let me know what you think and happy listening!

Vendetta Blog Tour - Interview & Giveaway



Title: Vendetta
Series: Blood for Blood #1
Author: Catherine Doyle
Release Date: February 24, 2015
Publisher: Chicken House Ltd
Think Romeo and Juliet meets The Godfather. Oh yeah. #bloodforblood #Vendetta

Blood Will Spill, Hearts Will Break: With a fierce rivalry raging between two warring families, falling in love is the deadliest thing Sophie could do. An epic debut set outside modern-day Chicago.


For Sophie, it starts as just another slow, hot summer in Cedar Hill. Then a new family moves into the long-abandoned mansion across the street: the Falcone family, with its five mysterious brothers. Unable to resist bad boy Nicoli, Sophie finds herself falling for him--and into his world. But just as the dark secrets of the Falcones begin to come to light, the skeletons of her own family, the Gracewells, rise to the surface, too. And soon Sophie is torn between the desires of two warring dynasties: the one she was born into and the one she's now in love with. But she'll have to choose between passion and honor. And when she does, blood will spill and hearts will break. Because in this twisted underworld, loyalty can mean the difference between life and death.

"Fan-freaking-tastic…I honestly can’t say enough good things about it! I would read anything Cat Doyle writes after flying through Vendetta!!" -Victoria Scott 

How did this book idea come to you?

I first had the idea for Vendetta when I was falling asleep one night (very convenient, I know!) I was drifting off when an image popped into my head. It was of five boys, doused in shadow, standing side-by-side in front of an old crumbling mansion. I was looking at them through the eyes of someone else – a girl, I realized, and she was wondering who they were and where they came from. I’ve always wanted to write a story that married my love of mafia movies like the Godfather and Goodfellas with my love of all things Disney and romance, and I knew these were the characters for the job. I got up straight away (even though it was like 2am) and started writing Vendetta that night.

What was the first thing your characters said to you when you started writing Vendetta?

I think Sophie’s first words were some variation on “I’m so bored.” And she was. I could see her so clearly, drumming her fingernails on the diner counter-top and staring off into the distance. Straightaway, I felt like I knew her completely. She was living this stagnant life in a town where almost everyone looked down on her. She was crying out for adventure or love, or both, anything to shake up the monotony of her routine. Millie didn’t say much; she was just this bright, twirling star in the periphery of Sophie’s vision. She was there to be a good friend, a so-so influence, and a source of happiness for Sophie. Their friendship was the most important thing to her. With Nic, I knew he was excited. He was itching to get to work and do what he came to do. He wasn’t focused on romance or girls when I first started writing him. Instead he was saying “I’m ready.” He was looking at the bigger picture, at his family’s legacy. And Luca? He was just plain frustrated. He was frustrated about who he had to be and what he had to do. Frustrated that he was now stuck in a one-horse town and angry at all the things he couldn’t change. I guess he was saying, “Get me the hell out of here now.” And I was saying “Nope.” ;)

I know you wrote the story based in Chicago because that’s where your mom grew up. Why did you feel that was a significant thing to do?

For the kind of story I wanted to write – one based in the criminal underworld – I knew it would have to be somewhere authentic, and if possible, somewhere that already had a history with the criminal underworld. My mother used to take me back to visit Chicago when I was growing up. I’ve always had a great fondness for the city, and being an enthusiast of crime movies and documentaries, I knew a bit about its history with organized crime too. The Chicago Outfit is a syndicate that dates back to the 1910s and began a period of crime marked by illegal distribution of banned substances as well as gang wars and family rivalries. The city was also famously home to Al Capone, one of the most notorious American mafia figures in history. Between the pre-existing historical connection and my own personal connection, it just seemed like a good fit.

There are five Falcone brothers, can you give a 1 word description for each of them? And which one would you like to date?

Ooooh, excellent question! So tough!

Nic: Passionate
Luca: Misunderstood
Valentino: Shrewd
Dom: Flirtatious
Gino: Unusual

I’d probably date Luca.

Is there any particular song that stands out when you think of the book?

 Yes! Take Me to Church by Hozier. It’s haunting, romantic, atmospheric and just plain brilliant.

Afterworlds Review


Title: Afterworlds
Author: Scott Westerfeld
Release Date: September 23, 2014
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Review Copy: Library
Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends she wonders whether she's made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other seasoned and fledgling writers who take her under their wings… 

Told in alternating chapters is Darcy's novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the 'Afterworld' to survive a terrorist attack. But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved - and terrifying - stories need to be reconciled. And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most.


I'm shamefully admitting that I haven't read any of Scott's books until this one. I'm not sure how he's slipped my radar because I feel like a derp for not reading any of his books beforehand. I plan on reading his Uglies series next.

This book is definitely unique as we have 2 stories going in between the pages. But not 2 stories of the same series, or 2 stories from the same author. No, we get to experience Darcy, whose writing the next YA book, Afterworld, along with the story of Afterworld itself. I applaud Scott for the accuracy of Darcy's story was about the actual writing process. Ramen noodles for days! 

I loved getting to know Darcy, not only does she write, edit, rewrite and promote a book, she also discovers herself too. It makes her seem real, like if I was in her shoes, I'd be doing the same thing, maybe with just more coffee. We also see Darcy fall in love, which was a beautiful experience. Not because it was expected, but the fact that it felt real. Relationships aren't all puppies and kittens all the time, there can be jealousy, secrets and denial. There's denial because Darcy falls for Imogen, whose a fellow author of the same publisher. Not everyone whose gay is 100% sure they're gay, and sometimes they don't know their gay until they end up with someone of the same gender, which is what happened here. It all starts with a manuscript in the case of Darcy and Imoegn. But that is all I'm saying on the relationship aspect, the rest you'll have to find out yourself. 

Now, as for Darcy's part of the story, I can understand if people felt it dragged on. There are times where a whole day is only covered in one chapter. But I just think of it as the fact that Scott wanted to give the readers a real taste of what it's actually like writing a story. Everyday on twitter and other social media platforms we see authors spending countless hours working on their masterpieces. Now for once, we truly get a sense of what's its like to be on the flip side. 

Let's talk about the story within this story. Afterworld is an interesting story about getting through past events, but also about death. The story starts out as Lizzie going home from visiting her dad over winter break, as she's waiting at the airport, there's a terrorist attack. The key word is this story are "play dead". These are the words that literally saves her life. Now little did she know that playing dead would also mean she'd also visit the dead, In the midst of the chaos, she discovers that she is a pyschopomp. Which is more commonly known as a death escort.  

The story of Lizzie was an interesting read, Lizzie learns about why her mom the way she is, the fact that there's a ghost of her moms childhood friend living in her house and that she now has a new occupation for eternity. As I was reading this, I tried to judge it as Darcy's words, not Scott's. Which was interesting to do, and came quite naturally. I think this had to do with the fact that we read Dary's story and then Lizzie's. Lizzie grows as a character, but at times has some blips of immaturity, which is natural for any teenager. 

There is a romance in this story, but it's not one that everyone would think would work. Some would say is it's because the boy she falls for is also a pyschopomp and he can relate to her, or some would argue is its because it was him that comforts her after her first time of crossing over. Whatever you think would be the case is most likely right. Darcy focuses on this aspect for a bit of her story in the book as she struggles with what to do with the romance. This was appealing to read because you can see the arguments as to why she could go the different routes possible. 

If you're like me and haven't read any of his books yet, DO SO NOW. Scott is a fantastic author and takes a reader on wonderful journeys between the pages.

The Accidental Highway Man Review


Title:  The Accidental Highwayman: Being the Tale of Kit Bristol, His Horse Midnight, a Mysterious Princess, and Sundry Magical Persons Besides
Series: Adventures of Kit Bristol #1
Author: Ben Tripp 
Date: October 14, 2014
Publisher: Tom Doherty Associates
Review Copy: Library


The Accidental Highwayman is the first swashbuckling adventure for young adults by talented author and illustrator, Ben Tripp.

In eighteenth-century England, young Christopher “Kit” Bristol is the unwitting servant of notorious highwayman Whistling Jack. One dark night, Kit finds his master bleeding from a mortal wound, dons the man’s riding cloak to seek help, and changes the course of his life forever. Mistaken for Whistling Jack and on the run from redcoats, Kit is catapulted into a world of magic and wonders he thought the stuff of fairy tales.

Bound by magical law, Kit takes up his master’s quest to rescue a rebellious fairy princess from an arranged marriage to King George III of England. But his task is not an easy one, for Kit must contend with the feisty Princess Morgana, gobling attacks, and a magical map that portends his destiny: as a hanged man upon the gallows….

Fans of classic fairy-tale fantasies will find much to love in this irresistible YA debut by Ben Tripp, the son of one of America’s most beloved illustrators, Wallace Tripp (Amelia Bedelia). Following in his father’s footsteps, Ben has woven illustrations throughout the story.

“Delightful and charming. A swashbuckling adventure in the vein of Robert Louis Stevenson.” —#1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson
Well Kit, I think it's safe to say that we went on a journey. A journey that would have us both admitted to a psych ward if we told anyone back in your day...or current time, to be honest. Fairies, goblings, witches, I mean, what else are we going to say? Flying horses exist too? Oh wait...

The combination of the history and fantasy aspects make this book a definite journey that I feel readers should go on. Though there are times where you may feel lost, or you may feel that it drags at points. Don't worry, thing will straighten themselves out.

I think my first worry when I started this was would I run into a language barrier. With the story being written in eighteenth century English, there can be some words or sayings that us modern folk wouldn't understand. Or if you're like me, and prefers older English over the current English language, you would likely understand 90% of the story. But luckily there's a side note at the bottom of the pages for words that defines the words that a reader may not know.

Now let's talk about that title. "The Accidental Highwayman: Being the Tale of Kit Bristol, His Horse Midnight, a Mysterious Princess, and Sundry Magical Persons Besides". That's more than a mouthful. In fact, that is a title you can easily forget because of how long it is. I'd even prefer if the title went with the name of the series, which is "The Adventures of Kit Bristol" or even if it said "The Accidental Highwayman: The Adventures of Kit Bristol". But enough of that.

Let's talk about the adventure that happens within these pages of the book. This is a steady roller coaster ride. There are a few blips in the book where there is more action, which can make it feel like a slower book. However, if we think about the time in history that the story takes place, the adventures within this time period are slow and sometimes the most exciting part would be considered nothing nowadays. 

So the story starts out by having Kit accidentally taking over his masters role as Whistling Jack, which instantly makes him a wanted criminal. Then we have the witch, who tells him of his destiny. well er I mean technically Whistling Jack's destiny. So now we thrown in Morgana, who is a a princess whose running away from her princess duties. Big shocker, really, I mean, who doesn't want to run away from being a princess?

So now we have Morgana and Kit off to run away, but running away can't be an easy endeavor? Can it? No, to add to the mix we have an Evil Queen and her Father trying to get to catch Morgana. But on their adventure we also meet other characters that add some more craziness to the mix. We meet a crazy family member, a old monkey and a acrobat whose known Kit for most of his youth. The group goes on a journey where you're going to be entranced, biting your nails or in amazement of the feats this group goes through.

Without trying to ramble on too much longer, or else you'd be able to read the book yourself by the time you've read this review. This book is a great story if you're looking for a caravan of an adventure. Should be a jolly good time in the next book.

The work never registers on her sympathy radar. She was raised to think of fae as beasts that feed on humans and want to destroy them.

When devastation hits Seattle, Zoey's whole world is turned upside down. The electric storm connects her to a ruthless fae, a Wanderer named Ryker, whose dealings expose them to even more trouble and danger. They embark on a journey, running and hiding from both the government and fae, both of which threaten their lives and those they love.
