Blog Tour: Whiteout by Gabriel Dylan – Review

Synopsis from Goodreads

Charlie hopes that the school ski trip will be the escape from his unhappy home life he so desperately needs. But there is something wrong with the remote ski village of Kaldgellan.

Something is out there, something ancient and evil, among the pines and the deep untracked drifts, watching and waiting. And when the storms blow in, Charlie and his schoolmates wake to find the resort deserted.

Cut off from the rest of the world far below, as night falls the few left alive on the snowbound mountain will wish they were somewhere, anywhere else.

Only ski guide Hanna seems to know of Kaldgellan’s long-buried secrets, but whether Charlie can trust her is another question…

Review

Gosh I don’t even know where to start…VAMPIRES ARE BACK! YAAAAAS!

Apologies for my excitement, but I absolutely love vampires and Whiteout by Gabriel Dylan is exactly what I have been waiting for. As soon as I got my hands on this book I devoured it in an instant, that’s how good it was.

As much as I love sparkly vampires and journal writer vampires who fall in love with humans, nothing beats blood lust vampires who only see red!

Initially, I was worried that the different points of view from different characters will put me off a bit, but the more I read the more I realised that with all that goes on is a perfect way to tell the story.

Especially because it still gives you a clear idea of who the main characters. Charlie and Hannah, which I really loved and Tara who you would love to hate. Or would love to have died like 3 seconds into the book #NotEvenSorry

This is my second book from Stripes Red Eye series and once again I’m not disappointed. It’s quite nice to be able to read a terrifying gory YA book and Whiteout delivers it from the moment people go missing and all the way to the end.

But there is much more than gory and blood going on. There is a bit of romance and, as most YA books, there is also teens dealing with a terrifying situation probably better than most adults! Not all of them, but there is always some good smart eggs and Whiteout has Charlie and Hannah.

Whiteout by Gabriel Dylan is a brilliant bloodsucking gory debut and if you love vampires as much as me, then this book is what you need in your life right now!

Rating: 🍍🍍🍍🍍.5

Whiteout by Gabriel Dylan is out today and you can get it now on Amazon (affiliated link).

Thanks Stripes for sending me a paperback copy of Whiteout in exchange for my honest review.

Blog Tour: The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson – Author Post

7 NOVELS FOR EVERY FATHER AND DAUGHTER

Ever since the birth of my daughter, I’ve been somewhat obsessed with the father/daughter relationship in literature. Having my own girl is one of the main reasons why I included a strong father/daughter dynamic in my novel, The Wolves of Winter. Since then, I’ve been on the lookout for stories surrounding fathers and daughters. Here’s a list of seven great novels with prevalent (not necessarily heart-warming) father/daughter relationships:

The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley

As a single father, Samuel Hawley has done his best to raise his daughter, Loo. But as his own violent past threatens to resurface, it’s more than his life on the line this time. Loo and Samuel are not characters I will soon forget. They’re tough, troubled, and their relationship is both strained and tender. A page-turning thriller, The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley is a fascinating look at violence, crime, and the things we’d do to protect the ones we love.

My Absolute Darling

If you’re looking for a cozy father/daughter story, you can look away now. This father/daughter relationship is rife with abuse, neglect, and violence. But it’s completely riveting. The protagonist, a young girl named Turtle, is excellently drawn, and the story is as tense as they come. Beautifully written, this novel is at once hard to read and impossible to put down

Under a Pole Star

Normally, I’d refuse to say something like this, but, Under a Pole Star really is a beautiful love story. However, beneath the romance, this is a novel about a girl who idolizes her father. A girl who began exploring the polar region because her sense of adventure was handed down to her by her dad, who raised her on a whaling ship. This novel is filled with violence, gorgeous settings, a believable love story, and a daughter whose relationship with her father changed the trajectory of her life.

Good Morning Midnight

Two stories intertwine as an aging astronomer survives in an apocalyptic Arctic and an astronaut seeks a way home after airwaves have gone silent. The astronomer, Augustine, finds a young girl out in the tundra and takes her in. Haunted by the memories of his past, Augustine and the young girl form a strong father/daughter bond. Good Morning Midnight is a fascinating story both for its unique landscapes and its introspective look at love and loss.

News of the world

An aging Civil War veteran named Captain Kidd travels across northern Texas, reading the newspaper for paying audiences. On his travels, he encounters a young girl named Johanna, who was captured and raised by a tribe of Kiowa raiders. After agreeing to escort the girl back to her original family, Kidd and Johanna develop a close father/daughter relationship that complicates his decision to leave her with a family she doesn’t love, in a life she doesn’t want. A simple, yet excellently told novel with characters to root for and remember.

The Wolf Road

Here’s another father/daughter relationship you wouldn’t exactly want in your family. After apocalyptic events, Elka is found and raised in the wilderness by a hunter named Trapper. When Elka learns that Trapper is a cold-hearted murderer, she escapes, hoping to find her real parents—but Trapper is soon on her tail. With an adopted father/daughter relationship of the worst kind, this novel is enthralling. The Wolf Road asks questions about who we are and who we become when the ones we thought we loved turn out to be the villains.

All the Light we Cannot See

Finally, All the Light we Cannot See is the story of a young blind girl and a German boy whose lives are both drastically altered by the travesties of war. In this novel, the father/daughter relationship between the blind girl, Marie-Laure, and her father, Daniel, is something to be utterly savored. Daniel takes painstaking care of his daughter, building her a wooden model of their neighborhood in Paris so that she can learn to navigate the streets through touch. Among others, it is this wonderful relationship that drives the narrative forward, showing how the bonds of love are strengthened in times of great sorrow.


There is some great suggestions here form Tyrell Johnson. I myself have an amazing relationship with my father so I always love to read about father/daughter relationships because of it.

One of the things I loved in Tyrell’s The Wolves of Winter was the love Lynn had for her father, and vice versa.

You can check my review of The Wolves of Winter here.

Make sure you check out this awesome suggestions, I’m sure you won’t regret it.

Happy Readings,

Blog Tour: The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson – Review

Synopsis from Goodreads

Forget the old days. Forget summer. Forget warmth. Forget anything that doesn’t help you survive.

Lynn McBride has learned much since society collapsed in the face of nuclear war and the relentless spread of disease. As memories of her old life haunt her, she has been forced to forge ahead in the snow-covered Canadian Yukon, learning how to hunt and trap to survive.

But her fragile existence is about to be shattered. Shadows of the world before have found her tiny community—most prominently in the enigmatic figure of Jax, who sets in motion a chain of events that will force Lynn to fulfill a destiny she never imagined.

Review

I think most people know how much I love dystopian books by now. To the point that if you want me to review your book all you have to do is say is dystopian and I’m on it!

However, I wasn’t expecting to love and at the same time be so scared of how amazingly realistic The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson was. Realistic to the point that once I read the book, there was a news report about something that is mentioned in the story and I was ready to move to Alaska before the flu came knocking on my door.

I initially thought that this was an YA Dystopian, that’s what I get for saying YES!YES!YES! before checking the blurb. Technically, I will consider it being a blend of YA with New Adult, due to Lynn’s age in her flashbacks.

It’s a bit of a slow-burner but in a way that absolutely works. There is enough time for you to set the story in this snowy wasteland that is all kinds of atmospheric and haunting. There is enough time for you to care for the outcome of these characters, some more than others. Basically as you take in the scenery you enjoy the story that unfolds.

I think what I found the most scary is how this future can turn into a reality. The events the snowballed the whole apocalypse are events that have already happened. You can see how things can suddenly turn into this post-apocalyptic world. You just got to hope that it doesn’t.

It’s just a brilliant debut by Tyrell Johnson  with a smart and tough young woman as the protagonist. I do hope there is a sequel to it because I will definitely be reading it!

Rating: 🍍🍍🍍🍍.5

The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson is out today in Paperback and you can get it now on Amazon (affiliated link).

Blog Tour: Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa

Synopsis from Goodreads

One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos.

Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn.Raised by monks in the isolated Silent Winds temple, Yumeko has trained all her life to hide her yokai nature. Half kitsune, half human, her skill with illusion is matched only by her penchant for mischief. Until the day her home is burned to the ground, her adoptive family is brutally slain and she is forced to flee for her life with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll.

There are many who would claim the dragon’s wish for their own. Kage Tatsumi, a mysterious samurai of the Shadow Clan, is one such hunter, under orders to retrieve the scroll…at any cost. Fate brings Kage and Yumeko together. With a promise to lead him to the scroll, an uneasy alliance is formed, offering Yumeko her best hope for survival. But he seeks what she has hidden away, and her deception could ultimately tear them both apart.

With an army of demons at her heels and the unlikeliest of allies at her side, Yumeko’s secrets are more than a matter of life or death. They are the key to the fate of the world itself.

Review 

I need the sequel like ASAP! Please someone give it to me now!

I really enjoyed reading Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa. The first time I heard of Kitsunes and Onis was while watching the TV Show Teen Wolf, and I loved discovering something new.

However, in this own voices YA Fantasy world that Julie Kagawa creates in Shadow of the Fox it goes beyond Kitsunes and Onis it opens as door to creatures, demons and magic from Japanese mythology. A brilliantly intriguing and at times scaring world.

The story is told by the perspective of three very different characters. Suki, Yumeko and Kage Tatsumi, the later two taking most of the chapters than Suki whom shows ever so often. Although I kind of believe that Suki is going to play a big part in the next instalment of the story.

Of all the characters my favourite one is Yumeko. I just want to protect her from the big, bad and scary world. She is an adorable character who is also clever and so adaptable despite being raised by monks. Most importantly she is kind to all. #CinnamonRoll

If we are being honest here, Shadow of the Fox will make a fantastic video game. As its characters go on their quest to find the Dragon Scroll they encounter other villages and dangers, a bit like little side quests until you get to the big finale. The big bad boss! Such a wonderful adventure into mythical places.

This is the first time I have read any of Julie Kagawa’s work and I believe I’m now a fan. Shadow of the Fox is a wonderful YA Fantasy novel and I can’t wait to read what becomes of Yumeko, Kage Tatsumi and Suki.

Rating: 🍍🍍🍍🍍.5

Blog Tour: Miss Marley by Vanessa Lafaye

img_6760.jpgSynopsis from Goodreads

Before A Christmas Carol there was… Miss Marley

A seasonal tale of kindness and goodwill.
Orphans Clara and Jacob Marley live by their wits, scavenging for scraps in the poorest alleyways of London, in the shadow of the workhouse. Every night, Jake promises his little sister ‘tomorrow will be better’ and when the chance to escape poverty comes their way, he seizes it despite the terrible price.

And so Jacob Marley is set on a path that leads to his infamous partnership with Ebenezer Scrooge. As Jacob builds a fortress of wealth to keep the world out, only Clara can warn him of the hideous fate that awaits him if he refuses to let love and kindness into his heart…

In Miss Marley, Vanessa Lafaye weaves a spellbinding Dickensian tale of ghosts, goodwill and hope – a perfect prequel to A Christmas Carol.

Mini-Review

I’m a big fan of Charles Dickens, so when offered the chance to review Miss Marley which is set in Dickens A Christmas Carol I just couldn’t say no.

The idea of picking up a character from a beloved classic such as A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and write their story, it can only be done by someone with some guts. This is the kind of thing that can go very wrong, but in this case it went the complete opposite way.

The way that Vanessa Lafaye decided to tell Jacob Marley’s story through the eyes of her own character – his sister Clara Belle Marley – was a stroke of genius. This decision is what gave Lafaye the freedom she needed to explore their story, while still being truthful to Dickens creation.

I had no idea until after I finished reading, that the author Vanessa Lafaye has unfortunately passed away before finishing writing Miss Marley. Her good friend and writing partner Rebecca Mascull whom shared the same love for Dickens as Lafaye, took upon the task of finishing the book for her. While reading the novella, I really couldn’t pin point where Lafaye voice ended and Rebecca Mascull began.

As Mascull said in the Afterword, it was like Vanessa’s voice flowed through her while she was writing…and that’s the feeling I got from reading.

Miss Marley is a quick and delightful read for all Dickens and Vanessa Lafaye fans. The perfect gift for classic book lovers at Christmas.

Rating: 🍍🍍🍍🍍.5

Blog Tour: The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox – Review

Synopsis by Goodreads

Two centuries after the Salem witch trials, there’s still one witch left in Massachusetts. But she doesn’t even know it.

Take this as a warning: if you are not able or willing to control yourself, it will not only be you who suffers the consequences but those around you, as well.

New Oldbury, 1821

In the wake of a scandal, the Montrose family and their three daughters—Catherine, Lydia, and Emeline—flee Boston for their new country home, Willow Hall. The estate seems sleepy and idyllic. But a subtle menace creeps into the atmosphere, remnants of a dark history that call to Lydia, and to the youngest, Emeline.

All three daughters will be irrevocably changed by what follows, but none more than Lydia, who must draw on a power she never knew she possessed if she wants to protect those she loves. For Willow Hall’s secrets will rise, in the end…

Review

Hester Fox debut novel The Witch of Willow Hall wasn’t quite what I was expecting. To be honest, at first I wasn’t even sure if I was going to keep reading, but the possibility of a romance kept me going and now I’m so glad I stuck to it.

It’s the second time this year that I start reading a book and almost halfway through I’m not sure about it, but I decide to stick to it and then ends up being a brilliant read.

This is a book that fits perfectly with this spooky time of the year. I won’t say that is a very witchy heavy book, which was what I initial thought would be. Nonetheless, you get much more than you thought you would. There is really a lot more going on.

Lydia is a wonderful, well read and likeable main character. You just can’t help but wish for all her wishes to come true. I could really resonate with her as she is just one of those characters that has to always be so strong for her family that forgets about being strong for herself and get what she wants in life. Seeing her discovering her own strength makes it for a great character development alongside everything else that is happening in Willow Hall.

The Witch of Willow Hall reminds me at times, of the old Gothic fiction classics. There is mystery, a disgusting secret, romance, a wicked sister, ghosts, witchcraft, while being set in the eerie backdrop of New Oldbury from 1821.

With all that is going on, the romance is really what I love the most. I’m a sucker for romance and historical novels are always my favourite because they play on the ‘will they, or will they not’ for longer. The anticipation really excites me, is one of my favourite tropes and Hester has wrote it exactly how I love it.

Overall, even though the first half of the book made me unsure if I was enjoying it, the second half really turned things around for me and turned it into a great read. A haunting romantic historical read perfect for all Gothic romance lovers on Halloween.

Rating: 🍍🍍🍍🍍

#Blogtober: The House with A Clock in Its Walls – Event and Mini Film Review

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY (8)

I had the pleasure to go to a private screening of the film The House With A Clock In Its Walls at the Entertainment One offices. I was invited by Piccadilly Press because they are also bringing out a new edition with new illustrations of the book in which the film is adapted from.

I met up with my partner in crime Nicola and her friend Rachel outside Entertainment One offices near Warren Street, so we could go in together.

I’m starting to think that I have a thing for offices, but I was geeking out inside. So sleek and nice with a big TV playing some of the films and other entertainment media they have worked on.

However, the geekiest moment of them all was when I started to look at their shelves and noticed that amongst awards LIMA and The Richard Attenborough UK Regional Awards there was and EMMY! It’s so pretty and shinny, and I don’t think I will ever be close to one again! One can only dream! *Fingers Crossed*

But enough about the EMMY. Once we  explored the reception area of the office we got to go inside their private cinema screening where once inside we got a copy of the book and bag of Proper Corn.

We got really nice seats and got settled in to watch the film.

Synopsis

The film is set in 1955. A young orphan named Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) arrives at New Zebedee, Michigan to be cared for by his eccentric uncle Jonathan (Jack Black), with the help of his neighbour Florence (Cate Blanchett).

Soon Lewis finds out that not all is at it seems, the house is actually enchanted and both his uncle and Florence are witches. As that isn’t enough, the house contains a hidden clock that is counting down to doomsday.

Together the three of them have to find a magical way of saving the world before the clock counts down!

Mini-Review

For a children’s movie I thought it was very good, magical and also very creepy!

Jack Black and Cate Blanchett chemistry as nagging best friends was amazing. Young Owen Vaccaro was adorable and quite talented, I don’t think we have seen the last of him.

I think what I most shocked by (in a good way) is that Eli Roth has directed the film. It’s quite extraordinary that the Director of Green Inferno, which by the way made me almost vomit in disgust, has also directed this magically creepy children’s film. If you have watched Green Inferno you know exactly what I mean.

Nonetheless, Roth did a great job and it was great to see his talent outside the Horror genre. However, I will probably argue that The House With A Clock In Its Walls its still part of the Horror genre. A lighter version of the genre to fit in with being a film for the whole family.

Rating: ★★★★☆

The House With A Clock In Its Walls it’s now showing in cinemas around the UK and you can also purchase the book with the movie tie-in cover on Amazon (affiliated link).

Thanks Piccadilly Press and Entertainment One for the invite.

Tick-Tock!

Of all the amazing things you can do in London, these 5 are some that have really peeked my interest. Price wise some can be more accessible than others but still all pretty affordable for a small budget, and all will provide some level of spookiness and for certain great fun.

#Blogtober: VIP Bloggers Brunch at Hot Key Books

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY (5)

A week ago, I was invited by Hot Key Books to a VIP Bloggers Brunch with Alexandra Christo (To Kill A Kingdom) and Sebastien De Castell (Spellslinger series) in attendance.

The event was held at the Bonnier Zaffre offices near Bond Street. I love going to publishers offices, gives me hope to one day work in one! *Fingers Crossed*

I met up with my girlies Nicola and Ash outside the offices. Love that Ash came all the way from Wales for the event, I just love when we get lucky enough to see her too.

Once inside the office we got into a room which had a spread of doughnuts, pastries, fruit, juices, tea and coffee on a table. Me and the girls got a seat and chatted between ourselves and other bloggers while eating some of the delicious brunch.

People kept arriving, which after a while made the room quite full and there was more people than seats.  However, they made sure that people with disabilities had a chair instead of sitting on the floor which was very nice.

After a while they let Alexandra and Sebastien loose. We were able to hang out with them for a bit before they had a casual talk with us about their new books.

I loved the whole informal setting, it made things so much more fun. Alexandra and Sebastien are hilarious and super talented because their books are amazing. Well, I haven’t read the Spellslinger series yet, but I know I’m going to love it as is just my type of series.

In the end we got given a copy of To Kill A Kindom and Soulbinder (Spellslinger #4) to get it signed by the authors. I’ve met Alexandra before at YALC this year and she recognised me which made be super happy.

Overall, the event was really lovely and the Hot Key team, Clare and Roisin took such great care of us. It was really nice to have an event during the day, as I’m much more of a brunch person than a cocktail one.

I’m very thankful for the invite and can’t wait for more events with Hot Key Books.

To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo is available now on Amazon(affiliated link)

The Spellslinger series by Sebastien De Castell is available no on Amazon. (affiliated link)

#Blogtober: Creatures of The Night TV Tag

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY (2)

I was looking for #Blogtober post ideas when I came across this old tag. Since I have never done it and I’m a sucker for creatures I thought it would be quite fitting for this year’s #Blogtober. However, I’m bringing a little twist to it.

The Creatures of The Night Tag was originally created by Katytastic and is very simple, for each creature of the night you suggest/recommend your favourite book with said creature in it. In my case, instead of suggesting books I will be suggesting TV shows.

Alright, my work here is done so time to go binge on more TV shows on Netflix.

Happy Netflix binge!
