    Three-Wishes-cover

When Lily Jacobs was born, she inherited Fazire – a genie. Her family had three wishes and they’d only ever used one so Fazire was stuck in the human world. This worked since he’d become a member of the family anyway.

Even with a genie, Lily's young life wasn’t perfect. To escape the kids making her miserable at school, Lily buried herself in romance novels. One day, when the teasing was just too much, she used one of her wishes. She told Fazire she wanted to find a man like in her books and she made the most complicated wish Fazire had ever heard. Her wished-for man had to be impossibly handsome, virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless (amongst a dozen other things).

He also had to think she was beautiful and he had to love her more than anything in the world.
Nathaniel McAllister wasn’t born to a life where there were such things as genies granting wishes. His life was filled with drugs, crime and neglect. He was running errands for a gangster before he was in his teens and, even though life and hard work led him to wealth and respectability, he always knew, deep down, he was dirty. When Nate met Lily he knew he was no good for her but as virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless as he was, Nate was no match for the pull of sweet, innocent Lily.

Unfortunately, Lily’s wish included that she and her hero go through trials and tribulations to test their love. And Fazire wasn’t only a good genie, he loved Lily – so he gave her exactly what she wanted.

  EXCERPT:

Nate didn’t know what he wanted but whatever it was, it certainly was not Georgia.

He was saved from answering Victor when he spied a youth wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, the hood worn up even though it was a warm day. The boy was slouching down the pavement, head bowed, hands in the front pocket of the sweatshirt, his head swinging this way and that, looking for his mark.

Nate’s guard, already on alert—always on alert—went into overdrive.

Nate’s eyes narrowed as he watched the youth, and Victor started to get into the Rolls. Then, as expected, the boy darted toward his target and Nate heard a woman’s outraged cry.

“Hey!” she yelled.

He watched the boy snatch the woman’s purse, his body tensing for action.

And then his eyes moved to the woman and uncharacteristically, he froze.

Blog Tour: Secrets of a Reluctant Princess [Review + Giveaway]





At Beverly Hills High, you have to be ruthless to survive…

Adrianna Bottom always wanted to be liked. But this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Now, she’s in the spotlight…and out of her geeky comfort zone. She’ll do whatever it takes to turn the rumor mill in her favor—even if it means keeping secrets. So far, it’s working.

Wear the right clothes. Say the right things. Be seen with the right people.

Kevin, the adorable sketch artist who shares her love of all things nerd, isn’t exactly the right people. But that doesn’t stop Adrianna from crushing on him. The only way she can spend time with him is in disguise, as Princess Andy, the masked girl he’s been LARPing with. If he found out who she really was, though, he’d hate her.

The rules have been set. The teams have their players. Game on.

My Review ★★★★


It's that time of the year when I just can't seem to read anything too dark or moody. Gimme some fun, romantic YA so I can soak up the extra sunlight with a read that makes me smile. SECRETS OF A RELUCTANT PRINCESS totally fit the bill!

Poor Andy. Talk about having your world turned upside down. After being bullied back home in Seattle she's ready for a new start at Beverly Hills High. But with a reality TV show crew catching her worst moments and making them worse, who's to blame her for making some not-so-great choices in friend-making? If Andy wants to let her geek flag fly, she better wear a mask. As a fellow geek I loved the LARPing parts of the plot a lot. I may not have ever been into the live-action type but I'm a role player who loves to see my people represented positively in fiction.


While it's generally light, humorous, and fun I was impressed with the complicated characters. These weren't your typical YA stereotypes and there was a lot more than met the eye by the time the story ended. I had my fair share of giggles and was really pleased to see the romantic plot end sweetly. I really enjoyed Griffin's writing style and will definitely be on the lookout for more YA offerings from her in the future.


If you love a good teen rom-com and need a feel-good read, look no further!

Review: The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco


The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco


Notes: ARC received via NetGalley.

Fantasy, Young Adult, Witches
Audio/Digital/Print (432 pages, SOURCEBOOKS)
Let me be clear: I never intended to raise my brother from his grave, though he may claim otherwise. If there’s anything I’ve learned from him in the years since, it’s that the dead hide truths as well as the living.
When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.
In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha—one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles…and make a powerful choice.
Memoirs of a Geisha meets The Name of the Wind in this brilliant new fantasy series by Rin Chupeco!

A very promising series opener. (4 stars)


Though quite derivative of Memoirs of a Geisha I hate to use that word because The Bone Witch manages to spin a well-known idea in a fresh way. Much as Julie Kagawa's The Iron King did with Labyrinth, The Bone Witch manages to be comfortably familiar and completely unknown all in one. So rarely do you see such a deep attention to costuming in YA fantasy and while it can feel a bit plodding in description sometimes, it plays such an important role in who and what the Asha are that I enjoyed it.

While I enjoyed The Bone Witch and will definitely be reading the next novel in the series it definitely will not work for everyone. The world building is complex and yet manages to leave so much unexplained. The big climax at the end is painfully obvious from very early in the book but will certainly leave readers eager to find out what lead to it. It is these flaws that also provide a reason to want to continue the series.

If you enjoy dark fantasy and liked Avatar: The Last Airbender, Sabaa Tahir's work, or The Star-Touched Queen, I think this is a read worth picking up. It's good, not great, but makes for a series starting novel that I'm glad not to have missed. I am very much looking forward to the next one!

    THE DEEP END - Tour teaser 2       

  EXCERPT:

As he slowly closed the door behind him and moved his eyes to look through the room, taking it in, she watched them get wide.
                They dropped to her and his amusement was clear. Not only radiating from his gaze but twitching his lips.
                Another unusual—and unacceptable—reaction.
                He thought this was funny.
                She hoped like fuck she had the opportunity to prove him wrong.
                She crossed her arms on her chest and slightly put out a foot, like she was about to start tapping her toe. In the wrap dress she wore, she knew this opened the overlap, not exposing anything, but the promise for him was impossible to resist.
                His attention dropped to her legs.
