75$ Amazon GC Giveaway: Sky’s End by Lesley Young

I have a weakness for sci-fi books with cool heroines, so here I am again with another blog tour and this time it’s for the intriguing Sky’s End by author Lesley Young.

By the way, Lesley will be awarding a $75 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn winner via Rafflecopter during the tour. Woot. Checkitout.

Sky's End

About the book

A secret she must never share. A secret that two warring species are determined to control. A universe’s future at stake.

Twenty-year-old Cassiel Winters joins Earth’s new space academy in hopes of finding her brother, one of Command’s top pilots and her only family, who’s been reported MIA. But she quickly realizes she may not be cut out for life in space, where female cadets are outnumbered, competition’s fierce, and she’s already failed her hand-to-hand combat test once.

Even the station’s most respected officer, Lt. Damian King, probably can’t help Cassiel pass the second time around – so why is he so interested in her progress? If only one of her freaky déjà vu visions would offer an answer instead of mysterious messages like hide.

When Cassiel’s manipulated into a perilous mission, she encounters a warrior species bred to protect the universe from an even greater threat. And she learns that her secret visions are at the heart of it all.

Now Cassiel must fight to control her own destiny and race to save her brother – even if it means pretending to be the pawn of Prime Or’ic, the cold-as-steel Thell’eon leader. Even if it means risking her life, facing hard truths, and making the ultimate sacrifice.

Get this book on Amazon or TBD.  Add this book on Goodreads.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Cephrael’s Hand by Melissa McPhail

I read Cephrael’s Hand last year and really loved it. It’s a pretty long novel and may not appeal to everyone but it was one of the best I read that year and one of my all-time favorite fantasies. Every time I receive an email about blog tours for Melissa’s books, I’m always up for it because <3! :)

Now I was going to post a review of book two, The Dagger of Adendigaeth, today, but, alas, I won’t be able to since I decided to re-read Cephrael’s Hand first to refresh my memory. Hopefully I’ll have my review of book two up before the end of the tour. I bought the Kindle version of the book when it became available, but I fell in a seriouzly serious reading and blogging rut sometime after that so it’s been sitting in my iPad for AGES. This blog tour is just the perfect time for me to get back to this series, especially with book three coming out in October (OMG can’t wait!).

So – after all that babble – today I’ll be revisiting Cephrael’s Hand! Read on for my thoughts on the book and check out all the seriouzly cool stuff happening in this blog tour! There are prizes! The prizes are only two $50 Amazon gift cards and an autographed copy of Cephrael’s Hand after all. No biggie.

T-Shirt Thursday!

Woohoo, T-Shirt Thursdays are back! Rather, I finally made time to browse for graphic tees YAY. I haven’t been looking at tees for a while and I think it’s because I tell myself I need more girly stuff (read: dresses and nice blouses) and don’t need any more t-shirts. Not that I buy these things a lot, but looking at them and knowing I can’t or shouldn’t makes me cry. Hah. Anyway, I realized I can have more girly stuff AND more t-shirts, too. I just need to allocate my moolah carefully, right? AMIRITE? (Why do they spell it that way, by the way?)

Enough blabbering. On to the graphic tees!

Music Monday: Bullet Dumas

Bullet-Dumas-headshotMan, I had this post drafted up months ago, but didn’t have (or make) time to finish it. Well, lookie, it’s finally up.

So, have I told you about this guy yet? Wait, I did. I wrote about this guy back in 2012 right after I saw him perform live for the first time. Well, guess what? He released his first EP a few months ago! Say it with me, YAYYYY.

Everytime I see this guy, one scene plays in my mind and it has nothing to do with music. Back in 2012, I went with Carpet Head and Team Pilipinas to Singapore for the Singapore Ultimate Open. I had with me Carpet Head’s fancy schmancy DSL camera with the paparazzi lens attached, this huge and super heavy long lens thing. During one of the games, Bullet executed an awesome Callaghan point and I failed to capture the moment with my big ass high tech camera! Big camera-woman fail on my end. I haven’t forgotten that.

Anyway, back to Monsieur Bullet and his music. His single Pssst!  has been on the airwaves for some time now. His music is also on iTunes, Amplify, Spotify, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp. Check check checkitout.

Website | Facebook | Twitter | InstagramSoundcloud | Bandcamp | iTunes

Okay, I was going to leave you with a Soundcloud player of one of his songs, but I couldn’t figure out how to embed the thing. Never mind! Go to Soundcloud and listen to some of Bullet’s music for FREE!

This week’s pasta adventures. Or not.

Can you eat pasta for lunch for four days in a row? Well, apparently I can.

So, we Filipinos love to eat rice in almost every meal, right? I’m home all day, left to my own devices, so sometimes I do cook rice and sometimes I don’t (usually when I’m too lazy to thaw something from the freezer). Anyway, we ran out of rice and didn’t have time to hit the supermarket. I really don’t get out much on weekdays ’cause I’m supposed to be workin’ at home like a good work-at-home person (hah!). Luckily, I bought a bag of penne the last time we were at the grocery store. Hurray.

I decided to make the easiest thing – and the only pasta thing – I know how to make: tuna pasta!
