Tainted Blood by Sara Hubbard #BookReview

I am here with my latest book review. This time it is Sara Hubbard's new release, and it is a paranormal romance. Now, normally I would probably say if paranormal romances are not your thing, that you would probably want to avoid this book. However, hear me out.... I would not say that I am a huge paranormal fan. I did enjoy the Sookie Stackhouse books, and I did read the Twilight books, so I am at the very least tolerant to it. Well, this book is different. I could see how someone who has never liked other paranormal books, could love this book.

It is very well written. The plot is unique and captivating. The characters are excellent, and very well developed. This book will cause you to abandon the "facts" you thought you knew about vampires, and that paranormal realm. It really offers a whole new take on it. Things are not what you previously thought them to be. 

You will go on a paranormal journey with Emily, Sebastian, and Alexander. Emily was living a perfectly normal life, until one night she was bitten by a vampire. The vampire died, because as it would turn out, Emily's blood in deadly to vampires. Once Sebastian and Alexander (vampire brothers) find out about Emily's toxic blood, they kidnap her and her sister, and use her sister's life as leverage to get her to help them.

What they want from her, is for her to kill their maker, with her toxic blood. The journey to that point is a wild ride. I honestly think it is a ride you will enjoy. Forget everything you thought you knew about vampires, and embark on this adventure. It is truly a brilliant story, and I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series. This book was satisfying, but it definitely left me wanting more.

It is intense, romantic, steamy, intriguing, entertaining. I highly recommend reading it. If you continue reading, you will find a synopsis of the book, an excerpt, information about the author, and links on where to get a copy of your own!!

Synopsis
Sometimes destiny punches you in the face...
Or takes a big gulp from your jugular.

Bookstore owner Emily only experiences fantasies and supernaturals through the books she reads until she comes face to face with a vampire who bites her and then drops dead. 


Upon hearing about her toxic blood, two vampire brothers kidnap Emily and force her to help them kill their master in exchange for her life and the life of her sister. But the longer she stays in their company, the more she realizes she was living a life she was never meant to and she needs to embrace her new normal. Even if giving in to her destiny will cost her hundreds of supernatural enemies who threaten to send her to an early grave.


Excerpt
"...dammit if I don’t want very badly to be kissed right now. I lick my lips and wait for him to close the distance. His breath washes over me, and his presence feels warm though he’s room temperature. I wait a long while, at least a minute, but when I’m sure the moment is gone, I finally open my eyes, and he’s no longer beside me. I exhale, disappointed and confused. I’m glad that he didn’t do what we both seemed to want but also devastated that he didn’t."

EDITORIAL REVIEW
"When Emily finds vampires in the alley behind her bookstore, she learns that nothing she knows about herself is true. Tainted Blood is a clever and erudite take on the modern vampire novel full of clever references, shifting allegiances, and powerful magic." Karen A., Line Editor, Red Adept Editing

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.





This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
