Follow Me Through Darkness by Danielle Ellison — Blog Tour!

Release Date: October 21, 2014
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Series: The Boundless Trilogy #1
Add to Goodreads: Follow Me Through Darkness

Synopsis: The truth won't always set you free.
Less than a year ago, Neely Ambrose’s biggest worry was having the freedom to follow a path that wasn't chosen for her.
Less than a year ago, she believed she could trust the Elders who said they had everyone’s best interest at heart and who said they were keeping them safe from the outside.
Sixty days ago, she discovered what they had planned for everyone she loved—and that all of it centered around her.
Now she’s on the run through a dangerous wasteland full of killing machines, secret organizations, and people who want to sell her back to the Elders for their own safety. The whole world outside the Compound is living proof that everything in Neely’s life was a lie manufactured by the Elders, which may even include the boy she loves.
All Neely wants is the truth, but each new piece of it drives her further from what she thought she knew. With only forty days until everyone she loves falls under the Elders’ mind control, Neely must decipher who to trust, what questions to ask, and how to get one step ahead of the Elders, who will do anything to keep their secrets buried.

Character Interview: Xenith

1. You are most happy when you are:

Left alone

2. What is your favorite time of day (morning/afternoon/night)?

Night, people are asleep, pretenses are down, and the whole world is alive.

3. If you could be famous for only one thing, what would it be?

My sheer brilliance, my charm, or my dashing good looks. I’ll let you pick.

4. You've just woken up alone, in the dark, and you're not sure where you are. Explain yourself.

This whole question is pointless. If I’m waking up in the dark then I was probably asleep, hence the waking up—and the dark means nighttime, which is when you sleep. And I am often sleeping alone, since the one person I want will never wake up beside me…

Anyway, I rarely know where I am since I’m all over the place, so this would be nothing new. The only time I know where I am is when I’m in my quarters because the smell of cinnamon will never leave my home because of my mother’s baking, but that is rare. I often have to determine my location based on what’s going on, the noises around me and the people who are familiar. So I would quickly figure out where I was.

Even if I didn’t know those things I’d be okay, since I spend most of my time in the darkness, alone, with no knowledge of where I am.

It’d be better to ask a different question next time. Make it provide something of value, a piece of information that you can use later. All of this was pointless.

5. Choose one color of the rainbow as your favorite and tell us why you chose it.

I don't have to tell you anything, but out of kindness and in respect to the curiosity that I’m sure will consume you, I will throw you a bone.
Green is vibrant, powerful, and it keeps me focused.

My Thoughts: I love everything about this cover! From the expression on the girls face to the beautiful steam-punk outfit to the bird skeleton sitting beside the cage and how her hands are tied with chains. It's sexy, it's intriguing, the whole gray-scale and smoke thing gives it a mysterious edge. What do you guys think of the cover?

Friends Without Benefits by Penny Reid

Release Date: September 19, 2013
Publisher: Caped Publishing
Series: Knitting in the City #2
Characters: Elizabeth Finney, Niccolò Manganiello (aka Nico Moretti)
Age Group: Adult Romance
Pages: 423
Format: Kindle
Source: Author (Thank you a million times!)
Buy the Book: Amazon

Synopsis: There are three things you need to know about Elizabeth Finney: 1) She suffers from severe sarcastic syndrome, especially when she's unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her like Nico Manganiello, and 3) She knows how to knit. Elizabeth Finney is almost always right about everything: the musical merits of boy bands are undervalued by society, “benefits” with human Ken dolls are better without friendship, and the sun has set on her once-in-a-lifetime chance for true love. But when Elizabeth’s plans for benefits without friendship are disarmed by the irritatingly charismatic and chauvinistic Nico Manganiello- her former nemesis- she finds herself struggling to maintain the electric fence around her heart while avoiding electrocution or, worse, falling in love.

*Friends Without Benefits can be read as a standalone.

My Review: How do I start this review? Hm. Maybe I can start by bowing to Penny Reid. Yup, that's the place to start. You genius piece of fabulous writer!
*crams crazy fangirl back inside, fixes hair and smiles politely*
I read Penny's first book in the Knitting in the City series, Neanderthal Seeks Human. I adored that book very, very much. I'm not going to expand much, but one of the main reasons I liked it so much was because Janie was so atypically smart and so uncomfortable in the social scene. I learned many cool facts from her and I laughed at all her antics. A lot of times I didn't particularly comprehend her, but really it just made her all the more real.
In this case, Elizabeth, who is Janie's best friend, is not shy or awkward. She's a bit rough around the edges and a bit of a tomboy.

Enters Nico.

Niccolò Manganiello you hot, sexy piece of fine Italian specimen. Okay, so from his first appearance I was pretty much a goner. He oozes charm like he learned before he even learned to walk. He's smooth, hot, funny and is very concerned over his niece which is simply heart-warming.
Elizabeth is still very much stuck in this whole awkward phase around Nico, I just feel for the poor woman. It's like she doesn't even know how to act. She's nervous because of all the things that happened in their past, but she just can't shake away the awareness for him or the attraction.
Nico is very persistent towards Elizabeth, he really likes her and he wants to be with her, but Elizabeth is just... well she's seriously muddled over everything. Elizabeth is a strong woman, but she's also very hard-headed and as much as Nico tries to tell her that she can move on from everything it's like she's stuck She isn't giving herself another chance at love. The dynamic between Nico and Elizabeth was simply explosive. They were great together, Nico was always teasing her and trying to get a rise out of her and it was fun to see Elizabeth's reactions.

Anywho... Now if I told you everything then what would be the point of you reading it, right? So, just trust me here and go read!
