AUTHOR: Ingrid Seymour
SERIES: Djinn Empire #1
PUBLICATION DATE: February 7 2017
PUBLISHER: PenDreams
SOURCE: Netgalley ARC

Faris is a Djinn with a secret and Marielle the first master to give him hope. Will she be the one to break his curse? There is no telling. All he really knows is she's ONE WISH AWAY from breaking his heart.

When Marielle was little, she used to believe Grandpa about his wish-granting Djinn. But now that she’s older, her beliefs have changed, and things like lousy ex-boyfriends and alcoholic fathers have become her reality.

Life isn’t done shattering her truths, though, and when Grandpa dies and the Djinn he warned her never to trust shows up at her doorstep, the world becomes a dangerous, magical place she never knew existed. Reeling for her once-normal life, Marielle soon realizes there’s no going back—not when she’s become part of a mortal conflict between two spell-bound Djinn. Faris—her handsome slave. And Zet—his vengeance-hungry brother. T…

POISONED IRIS REVIEW

TITLE: Poisoned Iris
AUTHOR: Cindy Mezni
SERIES: The Red Era #1
PUBLICATION DATE: December 21st 2016
PUBLISHER: Evatopia Press
SOURCE: Free copy from author for an honest review




Athens was once the cradle of civilization. Now it's slowly but surely becoming the tomb of humanity.

The Red Plague, a violent virus which had run rampant decades ago, left its imprint on the planet and the flesh of men. All that remains of the modern world is an endless wasteland of ruins—Erebos—and two cities—Elysion, the obscure island of the Non-Infecteds about which no one knows a thing, and, Tartaros, the crumbling town of the Infecteds where despair, hatred, violence and poverty are the keywords.

And at the heart of this universe lives Irisya, a sixteen-year-old Non-Infected girl, staying recluse in her home to be safe and relying on her brother, Memphis, for everything.

But then, one day, he disappears without a trace.

Irisya has no choice. To save him, to survive, she will have to brave all the danger…

2017 BOOKISH RESOLUTIONS

Hey guys! So HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! This is just gonna be a brief post on my bookish resolutions this year!




My first big priority is attending YALC for the 3 whole days! Back in 2015, i got a ticket to go to london on the weekend that YALC started. My flight would have landed at 1 am in the morning on the very last day of the event! And i would have made it maybe an hour late and utterly exhausted. AND THEN. My flight got retarded. Firstly by a few hours, by then my YALC dreams were completely crushed and i was literally bawling my eyes out in the car ride back from the airport. And then to dig it in a little deeper, they called and said my flight had been postponed to the next day. So while i was boarding the plane, YALC was in its last hour...





THIS YEAR-NOTHING WILL GET IN MY WAY. I'm buying my ticket early, got permission from my Uncle already and i'm going in March so there's no way i can miss YALC in July. I've watched so many videos on how to prep for this event and …
