I saw this Mr. Darcy shirt on my Facebook newsfeed and I just had to share it. I'm not particularly in love with Mr. Darcy but I love the book enough to appreciate this cute tee. I would wear this in baby pink. Anway, on to T-Shirt Thursday! On!
Alright! Third to the last blog tour for this half of the year! You might think it's weird that I'm counting down. It's just that I'm looking forward to focusing on my review pile after all the blog tours. I feel so bad for having all these delayed reviews.
Anyway, today I have an excerpt from the YA fantasy book, Mother’s Curse, by Thaddeus Nowak. Since this is one of my last blog tours for the first half of the year, I thought I'd make it more interesting by having a guest celebrity presenter for this excerpt. LOL.
Check it out and read on to learn how you can win huge prizes as part of this blog tour, including a Kindle Fire, $450 in Amazon gift cards, and 5 autographed copies of each book.

I think this is the fifth to the last blog tour I have for this first half of the year! In this new book, Byzantine Goldby author Chris Karlsen, the characters from Golden Chariot (book #1), Charlotte and Atakan, go on another exciting and dangerous treasure dive.

Charlotte Dashiell, an American archaeologist, and her lover, Atakan Vadim, a Turkish government agent, are scheduled to be part of the recovery team that brings up the artifacts. While en route to Cyprus, they find themselves caught in the crosshairs of Maksym Tischenko, a Ukrainian contract killer bent on revenge. Charlotte, Atakan and Tischenko share a grim history. As a result, Tischenko is a man who will stop at nothing to achieve his goal—seeing them both dead. -- Amazon | Goodreads
I know, the movie's been out for a while, but I had to post something movie-related again.
Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark a.k.a Iron Man NEVER. GETS. OLD.
Boom. That's it. That's my review of Iron Man 3 right there.
Right, so maybe I should say more. Okay, this is going to be very 'rambly' and probably chock-full of punctuation errors (em dash spree!) and ditzy expressions, so brace yourselves. No spoilers though, so no worries. You've seen the trailer, right?
So, the movie was pretty great. I think most people agree with that. Even those who haven't seen it yet will agree to that. It was entertaining and funny and full of Robert Downey, Jr. goodness. If you didn't like the movie, I don't know, maybe it's not your thing, that's fine. Anyway, it was great, but I would just like to mention three things that always amazes me to bits everytime an Iron Man movie comes out.
A few weeks ago I had a blog tour stop for the book Submerged by author Cheryl Kaye Tardif. I finished the book a few days after I posted the tour stop, but only got around to doing my review now. Here it is!
Two strangers submerged in guilt, brought together by fate…
After a tragic car accident claims the lives of his wife, Jane, and son, Ryan, Marcus Taylor is immersed in grief. But his family isn't the only thing he has lost. An addiction to painkillers has taken away his career as a paramedic. Working as a 911 operator is now the closest he gets to redemption—until he gets a call from a woman trapped in a car.
Rebecca Kingston yearns for a quiet weekend getaway, so she can think about her impending divorce from her abusive husband. When a mysterious truck runs her off the road, she is pinned behind the steering wheel, unable to help her two children in the back seat. Her only lifeline is a cell phone with a quickly depleting battery and a stranger's calm voice on the other end telling her everything will be all right. -- Amazon | Goodreads.
Yay, I was finally able to write quick reviews for the first two books of the children's fantasy and adventure series by author Elizabeth Parkinson-Bellows! Check out my thoughts on the books and enter the blog tour giveaway at the end of this post. :)
