The End...But Hopefully A Beginning As Well?

So...gosh this is hard to write...I'm going to be ending my time here on Read It Write Now. I don't know if I will ever come back...but for now I won't be blogging here anymore. I recently started working two jobs and with the holidays coming up, I just don't have the time to maintain this blog...

HOWEVER!! Don't fret my lovely followers. I will still be reading and reviewing books! I just decided to pair up with Austine over at NovelKnight instead! She needed help with her blog and I decided to give it a try. For the last month I have been guest reviewing over at NK so that we could both test the waters a bit. And it's totally worked out! We've even started planning so many awesome things for next year!!

So, even though this is the end of Read It Write Now, this is not the end of my blogging career. If you'd like to follow over at NovelKnight I would really appreciate it! I will always value your following and I hope you will still follow my reviews in the future <3

I love you all so much! And I hope to hear from you, if not on this post, then over at NK <3333

fire-in-you-cover
About FIRE IN YOU (Standalone Contemporary Romance Releasing November 28, 2016): From the # 1 New York Times and International bestselling author comes a richly moving story about heartbreak and guilt, second chances and hope. Full of familiar, fan-favorite characters and no two people more deserving of a happy ending, Fire In You will burn bright beyond the last page… 
 Jillian Lima’s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours. The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast’ Mitchell, broke her heart, her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun.  It takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life, but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and regret. She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living. She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he’s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything. And when he sees Jillian, he’s no longer capable of thinking of her as the little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who’d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what. Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.

Waiting on Wednesday #19

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we share upcoming releases we are excited for.

Release Date: November 22
Synopsis:
Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile lands. But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire—a dangerous gift for the future queen of a kingdom where magic is forbidden.

Now, Denna must learn the ways of her new home while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria’s formidable warhorses before her coronation—and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine (called Mare), sister of her betrothed.

When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two work together, each discovers there’s more to the other than she thought. Mare is surprised by Denna’s intelligence and bravery, while Denna is drawn to Mare’s independent streak. Soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.

But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms—and each other.

The Lost Codex Blog Tour


THE LOST CODEX EXCERPT #1


My window is opened, tiny as it may be, and I do not waste it. I dart forward, the vorpal blade firm in my hand as I mentally count down seconds. The beast releases a mournful gurgle of frustration, its elongated whiskers and scaly jowls limply sagging around massive teeth. When I skid to a stop, the tips of my leather boots collide with its tail.
Another gurgle sounds, one ripe with helpless fury.
A satchel is thrown to the ground before I pry thick scales off with the end of my blade. “My apologies.” I gasp as I wrench off bits of its tough hide. “I promise, I’ll depart momentarily.”
Its body shudders, as if allowed, it would quake with indignation. Once I reach the count of ten, I shove my treasure into the satchel and sprint out of the jabberwocky’s lair.
Seven.
The earth beneath my feet rumbles.
Six.
Jubjub birds explode from the trees at the sheer intensity of the beast’s wrath.
Five.
Rumbling turns to assured quaking.
Four. Three.
I barrel over broken branches and bushes, my hair snagging upon greedy twigs.
Two.
I shift my sword, lifting up a free arm.
One.
Jace grabs hold, lifting me up to settle between his chest and his stallion’s withers. I take hold of the reigns, laughter burbling from the both of us as we gallop through the remaining thicket. Bursting into the Dark Meadows, sunlight warms my face. My smile is so wide, my cheeks hurt. My lungs sting, the breath from them comes in exhilarated bursts.
The Caterpillar often accuses me of enjoying life on the edge of my blade. His point holds validity, because goodness, do I feel alive right now.

Honestly...I don't know how to answer this question. I haven't read the other books so I'm not sure which villains are included in them...What is your favorite villain?

It's Monday! Let's Discuss...Alternating Point of View

This week the topic I thought we would discuss is alternating POV

When I first started reading, I hated POV changes and I hated third person. As I continued reading, however, I have grown to love those two writing styles more and more. I like how with third person we get a feel for each the character and their surroundings as well. I like how when an author writes in third person, the generally rotate between characters. It just gives it a deeper feel to it.

There are some cons, however. With third person, you generally don't get a lot of the inner dialogue. There's always a mystery surrounding the character being focused on. But I kind of like that. It keeps me guessing.

POV changes are a little tricky. If they aren't done right it can lead to the book not being as great as it could have been if it had just focused on the one character. I see this a lot with authors who write in first person and change POVs every other chapter. It mainly shows in the writing of the male character (if it's being switched between love interests etc etc) when a female is writing the story. Now don't get me wrong, there are *many* authors out there who pull this off flawlessly. But the bad POV changes are still out there (I was one of them haha).

In the end, for me personally, I like POV changes when it's written in third person. Actually...I generally prefer third person over first person now. I think it's because it has become so common, especially in fantasy books.

What is your view on alternating POV? Love it or hate it?
