One Liner Wednesday – What Happens Next

The Magician’s Curse kept me turning page after page – I wanted to see what happens next.

Fetus - Linda G. Hill Book Cover for ‘The Magicians Curse’ by Author Linda G.Hill

I gave Linda Hill’s The Magician’s Curse four stars on Goodreads and Amazon. This was an entertaining read. Oftentimes, if you’ve read as many books as I have, you’d be able to predict what’s going to happen next. With The Magician’s Curse, I couldn’t. That’s what kept me turning page after page – to see what the characters will do next, what will happen to them. It’s certainly different from the typical books I read and a great palate cleanser. It’s not cookie-cutter or formulaic at all. I don’t normally read books with young characters (18/23) anymore, but I made an exception for this. I’m glad I did because the heroine and hero (Herman and Stephen) are mature for their age. I’d recommend…

All Hallows at Eyre Hall – Book Review

All Hallows at Eyre Hall (The Eyre Hall Trilogy, #1)All Hallows at Eyre Hall by Luccia Gray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s been years–so many, that I’ve forgotten most of the story–since I read Jane Eyre. When I started reading All Hallows at Eyre Hall, I was a bit hesitant. I wasn’t sure how much was flashback to the original book and how much was new. I stopped reading. Yet I was determined enough to begin again; the second time I decided to trust Ms. Gray to guide me through seamlessly, and I’m very glad I did.

Ms. Gray has a talent for prose and her ability to immerse me in the time in history when the story takes place was astounding. The continuation of Jane Eyre’s tale is quite believable. It left me wanting more. If there is one criticism I have of this book it’s the jumping back and forth of the first person narrative. I found myself rushing through the beginning of some chapters to find out whose head I was in. But that wasn’t enough to make me want to put it down.

I look forward to the next book in the series.

Review Wednesday -All Good Stories by Linda G Hill

Another lovely review, this time by Wendy Unsworth. Thank you so much, Wendy! 😀 ❤

Wendy Unsworth

img_1918This is lovely, little gobble-up-in-one-go novella. It is the second book this week that I have reviewed that is definitely out of my genre but it is also the second that I thoroughly enjoyed. This story is light and fluffy, not too sweet, slightly quirky.

Xavier and Jupiter are just very good friends who support one another although Xavier would like things to be a bit more serious. When Jupiter begins an internet relationship with Bob, Xavier is immediately suspicious and wants Jupiter to end it. He is worried for Jupiter and also for himself. This new relationship makes him realise just how much he cares for her.

The story takes a couple of unexpected turns before this romantic comedy ends as it should. The suppporting characters are unusual and memorable and the writing is fluid and assured.

A very nice, little break from longer, grittier novels.

Goodreads Review: All Good Stories

Thank you so much, Kaine! Very happy you enjoyed it. 😀

Insomnia, Nightmares and General Madness

All Good StoriesAll Good Stories by Linda G. Hill

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, that was different?

I came into this book not quite knowing what to expect. I knew it would involve ?mushy stuff,? and that it was liable to be more lighthearted than my usual fare, but beyond that I didn?t have much to go on.

Let me say that I am glad I took the trip. Sometimes whim and chance lead us to things that we would not otherwise have come across, and in those moments we should be thankful.

The technical portion of the program is well done, and while in the first few chapters you might be prone to thinking it childish or a little over-the-top, it becomes clearer towards the end and you start to see how it all fits together. The final whammy – and the opportunity to read the central story that…

#tuesdayuseitinasentence – Opening a 4 star review!

I’m so glad Stephanie decided to use the word “opening” for the word of the week in the Tuesday Use It In A Sentence prompt, because it gives me an opening to write a post about my novelette, All Good Stories, again. I hope she won’t mind that I’m writing more than a sentence.  You should check out the prompt on her blog, here: https://stephaniecolpron.wordpress.com/2016/08/23/tuesdayuseitinasentence-opening/ It’s fun!

You’re wondering why I’m itching to write about my novelette? Let me share my exciting news with you.

I received a 4 star review on Amazon and Goodreads! The reviewer got the name of one of my main characters wrong, (his name is Xavier) but it doesn’t matter: it’s obvious she read it. And hey, she got the “X” right. 😀

Here it is, as it reads on Amazon:

All Good StoriesFun, short read for any fan of romantic comedy
by K.J. Avila

“All Good Stories is a novelette that follows the relationship between Xander and Jupiter, mostly from Xander’s point of view, but occasionally jumping to Bob – Jupiter’s new friend. Jupiter becomes friends with Bob online and this sends Xander head-first into jealousy. We get peeks at the many characters around them, too, all big personalities that stand out in the short tale. As a result of the colorful cast, shenanigans ensue.

“This is a fun, short read for any fan of romantic comedy. Xander and Jupiter have a really fun dynamic, and are by no means perfect – he’s a bit possessive and paranoid, while she’s too trusting and a little air-headed. Their flaws help flesh out the characters in a way that makes them very real despite the story’s brevity. Since it’s so short, the author doesn’t dedicate a ton of time to setting or descriptions, but that doesn’t take away from the overall story. It’s a character-driven tale that leaves you warm and fuzzy at the end.

“Overall, it’s a nice story sprinkled with humor that leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy once you’re done. I’d love to see it fleshed out into a longer piece, with possibly a little more plot, but that’s just because I’d like to see these characters more. If you’re a rom-com fan, give it a try!”

I was so excited when I read this – my very first review ever!

If you’d like to give All Good Stories a read for yourself, you can pick it up by clicking the following links:
Amazon U.S. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JQWMQAE
Amazon U.K. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01JQWMQAE
Amazon Canada https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01JQWMQAE and many other countries as well. Just ask and I’ll give you the links.
You can also pick it up on Kobo, here: https://store.kobobooks.com/en-ca/ebook/all-good-stories

If you’ve already bought it, thank you so much. And thanks once again to Stephanie for the prompt!

REVIEW – Faking It by Elisa Lorello

Faking ItFaking It by Elisa Lorello
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Once in a while I go to the bookstore and pick up a few books from the sale racks. This one turned out to be an amazing read. It took me no time at all to fall in love with the characters, who are written not only with incredible depth, but with such ease that I didn’t realize I was becoming immersed until I couldn’t put down the novel.
If you enjoy a good love story with imperfect but perfectly lovable characters, you’ll love Faking It. I can’t wait to read the sequel.
