Misfortune of Song is the fifth book in the Druid’s Brooch Series by Christy Nicholas. This story can be a stand-alone book, but in my humble opinion I would read the other books as well. This book has all kinds of mystical properties. Misfortune of Song is one that brings a grandfather, Maelan to make an important choice for Orlargh. It this struggle that makes this story so good. Orlagh does not like make black or white decisions and tends to live in the gray area. There is a real struggle for Maelan because he wants to save her from some heart aches. Will Orlagh take her grandfather advise or will she take the other road?
Yearning Young by Deidre Huesmann is a beautifully written young adult story about life and what it means to be different. This is the second book in the Burning Britely series. The emotions I had reading this story were very real and my heart hurt for Braeden. The story is from Braeden’s point of view and he is dealing with all the hormones of being a teenager and being “different” from others. One thing I love about Braeden is no matter what life throws at him, he always sees the good in the moment. This story is about friendship, loyalty, strength, weakness, and pain. It is one that I recommend all teenagers read that maybe one day they will understand the pain and suffering of other people’s actions.
The Chosen: Book One: The Orb Quest Series by Cari Shaeffer is a interesting YA story. There is action, mystery, fantasy, danger, and did I say leaving teenagers to learn the truths of the destiny of others? It is a story of friendships and being able to trust one another on this magical adventure. The storyline took me on a roller coaster ride but it was well worth the ride. Would you be willing to let teenagers learn about the truth behind the orbs?

Gaia Amman wrote The Italian Saga books and Happily. Ever After? Is the sixth book and it can be a stand-alone book. Gaia Amman writes about a relationship where two opposites attract one another. This book has funny, serious, life lessons, and tough relationships. I know I was on a roller coaster ride full of emotions. I can relate to Leda and I really went through this story thinking yep that happened to me too. Sergio is the opposite of Leda. He is more fun loving flying with the seat of his pants type of guy. When Sergio and Leda get together there is a whole lot of fun and seriousness at stake. I hope you see the humorous as well as the serious sides of Leda and Sergio and fall in love with them as much as I have.
The Protector: Mac is the first book in the Cover Six Security series by Lisa B. Kamps. This book is face pace no nonsense book. Ms. Kamps does an amazing job that kept me on the edge of my seat.

Is TR off her game or is everything happening to her on purpose? Will Mac and TR figure out what is going on?

Age of Saints: Druid’s Brooch series by Christy Nicholas is an great fast read. The action is non stop and the story is one of family. I love reading Christy Nicholas books because I know that I am going get to an adventure of a lifetime with in the book. In the same breath, Christy Nicholas usually has some type of bite to the story. In this story, Conall had promise to take care of his sister Lainn to his dying father. Conall had issues keeping that promise. Between the abusive step-father, a powerful Faerie Queen, and a maddened Fae Lord, Conall was having a hard time making the decisions to Lainn. The story is a roller coaster ride of action and emotions. Will Conall be able to take care of Lainn or will the others make sure he will not be able to fulfill his promise to his father?
Charlotte Roth did it again. She wrote Dancing Queen which is a fast steady read with all kinds of humor, sass, and love all wrapped in one. One thing about Charlotte Roth is when I am feeling down I just pick up a book by Charlotte Roth and I find myself in a better mood instantly. This story will keep you giggling all the way through. Fiona is a “fat girl” that was told she could not dance because of it. Her work urges her to join a support group for her weight issues. There she meets Stu. Stu and Fiona become friends. Stu brings this wacky idea to Fiona that they should compete in a local dancing with the stars. That is when the story takes off and let the comedy, friendship, and love dance right in. I will be recommending this book to anyone that needs that release from the tortures of the world around them to join Stu and Fiona in their world of friendship.
Tales of the Dragonfly Book III: Extended Flight is apart of Tales of the Dragonfly series by Tamara Ferguson. Being that this is the third book, it is a stand-alone book. Tamara Ferguson is an awesome story teller. When I read her books, I feel that she engages me as a reader. She wants you to love her characters and to take the journey as she has laid out for them. This story is about wounded warrior named Aaron and his sister who is missing. The story takes place in New York City. There is a bit of suspense with Kiley who has abilities she is hesitant to tell others about. There are two mysteries happening in the story and both are equally engaging. I will leave that for you to ponder while you are reading Extended Flight
Miss Apple Pants (aka Ella) is back at it in Lost in Love. This story is a quick read because it is taken at face value, nothing really to think like a mystery. There are emotional parts to the story. Ella is loving life with her parents and baby. On the other hand, she is trying to figure out what her heart really wants. Ella will have more and more life lessons. Ella’s character is one that you can become book friends with. I found myself yelling at the computer because I did not agree with her choices. Does she want to go after her former love or should she move on?

WTF, God? Was written by Michelle N. Onuorah. When there is a book with a spiritual feel to it, I generally do not want to read it. I will admit that this book was interesting. It is Onuorah’s journey with her spiritual life and how she responds to it. There are ten lessons that Onuorah has learned about God and his role in her life. If you need a spiritual uplifting this story is for you.
