Thorn – A Singular Cover Reveal

ThornCoverReveal

This cover reveal is singular in two respects. First, I’d like to begin with a promise that cover reveals and canned content aren’t going to become a thing. Participating in a cover reveal is something I’m doing on this occasion because of the second unique thing about this cover reveal. It is a cover reveal for a book I enjoyed immensely and I think it was an unusually good decision to redesign the cover. The new design reflects the fact that this isn’t just another young adult story about a princess. Although those can be good too, this is something far more unique. Continue reading

Rating: ★★★★☆
Review Summary: The romance was a tiny bit frustrating, but the author’s skillful writing made it hard to put this book down.

Seventeen-year-old Riven is as tough as they come. Coming from a world ravaged by a devastating android war, she has to be. There’s no room for softness, no room for emotion, no room for mistakes.

Torn between duty and desire, she must decide whether Caden is simply a target or whether he is something more. (Source) Continue reading

Rating: ★★★☆☆
Review Summary: I didn’t love the writing style and found the plot a bit weak, but the creative world building was awesome.

Irrelevant Kandy is a beautiful young woman, but she’s also bored and tired of men who only appreciate her looks. This leads her to make the following wish: “I’m board stiff. I want Adventure, Excitement, and Romance”. Unfortunately, the wishing well noticed her typo and literally turns her into a board! Fortunately Kandy might actually be going to get the rest of her wish too. Just not in the way she expected…
