About

I am a college student, wife and mother of one pretty amazing toddler. I’m a little ashamed to admit that after high school I completely stopped reading for a couple years… and then my husband was TDY and I was on bed rest. So after exhausting my Netflix queue I decided to give into the hype and read The Hunger Games.

I haven’t stopped reading since. After a three-day Hunger Games marathon I realized how much I missed reading and immediately picked up another book, and another and another…. and, yep, you guessed it, another.

So when I’m not playing spending time with my amazing family, or studying or playing housewife my nose is in a book (or nearly pressed to my kindle app on my iPhone- whatever.)

  1. Hi C.,

    I was just looking over your reviews on Amazon and your blog. I’m super impressed with how well you write them, and I love the professional look of the blog. The background picture is awesome! Great job! Based on some of the books you’ve reviewed, I thought you might like my novel, The Last Orphans by N.W. Harris. If you’re interested, I’d be happy to send a ebook copy for your review.

    Below is a link to The Last Orphans on Amazon and GoodReads where you can see the description and some other reviews. I’m also including a description of the book below and a review from InD’tale Magazine.

    The Last Orphans was published by Clean Teen Publishing in October 2014 and is an Award-Winning Finalist in the “Science Fiction” category of the 2014 USA Best Book Awards.

    Thanks for your consideration,
    Neil

    Book Description:

    One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world.

    In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas—an out-of-his-league classmate—who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance.

    Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected—the annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out there, and it won’t stop until every person in the world is dead.

    A spine-tingling adventure that will have you gasping for breath all the way until the last page, The Last Orphans is the first book in an all-new apocalyptic series.

    InD’tale Magazine–November 2014 Issue: Five Stars and a Crowned Heart!

    “It only takes a few hours to drastically change life for Shane Tucker and every other child in the world. The entire adult existence is exterminated. The children are left to manage by themselves and endure with the cruel aftereffects. Shane is now one of the oldest in his town and has been placed in charge of a large group of survivors; including his crush Kelly. The children set out to find the reason all of the adults have died and never expected the answer they eventually find. The death of the adults is only the beginning – the unknown power won’t stop until every human is dead.

    Mr. Harris keeps one on the edge of their seat throughout this apocalyptic young adult story. “The Last Orphans” shows a terrifyingly realistic view of what could happen. The imagery is absolutely amazing, it allows the reader to live the story and feel the emotions of the characters. It is a wonderful experience and very refreshing reading about such strong characters given their situation. “The Last Orphans” gives readers a touch of romance, just enough so the reader will reminisce about what it felt like having that first teenage crush. This story is a great start to an excellent series and will have readers begging and pleading for more!”
