Review: The Girl who Saved the World: The Death Fields: Post-Apocalyptic Thriller Book 6

The Girl who Saved the World: The Death Fields: Post-Apocalyptic Thriller Book 6 The Girl who Saved the World: The Death Fields: Post-Apocalyptic Thriller Book 6 by Angel Lawson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this series! Alex & Wyatt are my favorites but I was glad to see Parker and Davis back. I love how the author wrapped up the series but now I can't wait to read the spinoff series with Cole that she mentioned in the back of the book.

Review: Fairy Godmothers of The Four Directions

Fairy Godmothers of The Four Directions Fairy Godmothers of The Four Directions by Jennifer Morse
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This book took me days to read and a book this size normally takes a couple hours to read. I couldn't get into the story. It just did not interest me. I felt like I was sitting in on someone else's therapy session with their psychiatrist. This book just wasn't for me.

Crash Land on Kurai Teaser #3

Crash Land on Kurai - Excerpt

Am I dead?

“You’re not dead. Shift to the right.”


“Your other right, Yumi. Wake up! Open your eyes!”

My eyes fly open as a shock of pain rips through my leg. I cry out, and Kazuo jerks his hands away from a giant piece of metal sticking out of my thigh.

“Okay, that’s not going anywhere.”

“What the…” I swallow and try to concentrate on the world swimming around me. My leg is numb except for the pain, my hands are bleeding and I have no idea why, and I taste the copper of blood in my mouth too. Lights flicker through the bridge, emergency lights on but not illuminating enough. In the station next to me, the crew member in charge of life support is dead, her head slumped forward, her red hair around her shoulders, which means we still have forward thrust. Her name pops into my head, Christina. She loved karate, coffee, and chocolate ice cream.

I’m in shock if I can even assess a situation like this. What about her family? Her friends? She’s dead, and I’m alive, and we’re less than a meter from each other. How does that even happen?

“Hey!” Kazuo snaps his fingers in front of my face. “Stay with me.” He puts his face right in front of mine so I can lock eyes with him. I want to return to the state of a five-year-old and throw my arms around his neck so he can carry me off to the beach for sandcastles and kite flying. “Stay with me, Kako.”

Now I cry — not a lot of tears but a few for the kid I left behind. Kazuo always said I was like a baby deer, a kako, until I turned a teen. It was his pet name for me. My mother loved it. My father tolerated it. I always got the feeling he didn’t trust Kazuo fully though he gave him free rein to watch his children. There’s a lot I don’t understand about my parents. It probably has something to do with Kazuo’s past as an assassin and his rocky relationship with the empress. But I don’t know for sure.

“Don’t cry,” he says, a command with no sympathy. This is how he deals with all emergencies. The sympathy will come later when we’re safe.

Author Jeannette Winters

Jeannette Winters is a romance author mixing heart, intrigue, and the steamy pleasure of a Billionaire romance.

Jeannette grew up in a large family, number ten out of eleven children, eight of them being older brothers. She quickly developed a great sense of humor, mostly from necessity. One of her greatest joys is sitting on the porch where they were all raised and hearing the stories from years gone by. Quietly laughing to herself, she notices how they embellish the stories more and more each year.

Storytelling was passed down from her grandfather and mother. Jeannette caught the bug at a very young age. If she didn’t have her head in a book, then she was off somewhere with a notebook, jotting down stories of what she would write if one day she became an author. Although the notebook may have vanished, the stories are still vivid and waiting for the right time to be told.
Despite having an amazing family, there have also been some sorrows in her life, including the loss of loved ones. Over the years, Jeannette has spent countless hours volunteering for different organizations and acting as a caregiver to those most dear to her. As a result, supporting the elderly became of utmost importance.

Author Danielle Stewart

I currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my husband and five year old son. I work hard to perfect the ability to write in a noisy house and create story lines while folding laundry. I love hearing from readers so please find me on social media!

Ten Things to know about me:

  1. I have a fear of whales. All whales. The noise they make. The sight of them (even on tv). I don’t think this phobia has a name and I’ve never met anyone else who feels this way. I blame it on the 3D movie when I was 7 at the Boston Museum of Science. (Thanks Dad.)

    1. When I get hungry it brings out the worst in me. My friends and family know to keep me well fed. They pack snacks now.

      1. I can cook but not bake. Not even a little. Not even a box of brownies.

        1. If there is a song I like it is normal to hear me listening to it a hundred times (give or take) in a row.

          1. I do not, under any circumstances, read directions. Who has time for that? Making mac & cheese by the seat of my pants for the last 25 years.

            1. Like a black-out drunk, I have lost hours of my life mysteriously to Pinterest. If you haven’t tried it yet… don’t. Save your self.

              1. Before I became a mother, lots of things grossed me out. Now nothing does.

                1. My favorite food is food… my least favorite food is no food. I love food. (apply the same rule to wine)

                  1. I do not have a green thumb. I have the kind of thumb that kills any type of plant ever given to me. Whatever kind of thumb that is… I have it.
                  2. 10. Writing has changed my life. Not just the career it’s created but the way I feel when I write. If you have something you love to do I hope you get the opportunity to do it.

                    Review: Going Postal

                    Going Postal Going Postal by Terry Pratchett
                    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

                    I have never read anything by this author and I really didn't know what to expect. The MC is a criminal that is given a chance to live as a functional member of society. He is expected to run a post office that has been closed for many years. Ok, this is where I mistakenly thought the book was going to be a bit dry. What could possibly be interesting about a post office and take up 377 pages? Apparently, a lot. I loved the golums! This is the first book I have read with them and they really added to the story. I also enjoyed the bits of magic and fantasy thrown throughout the book. The technology in this world is so different than what we have. This book was totally different than what I expected and I certainly did not expect to enjoy it so much. I will be looking for more by this author.
