Discussion: Girl power in books with @magicaeseries


A festival in Nosaj’s honor has been interrupted by a mysterious challenger wearing the Circulus de Potentia, a band of gold that gives him unstoppable strength and power. One by one the Guardians fall and a race is on for Alex to go find the wizard with a secret regarding the curious symbol on the golden band. Finding this peculiar wizard named Pythagoras wouldn't be such a daunting task if it wasn't for the packs of wolves that roam the forest and a maze she and her friends will have to solve as well as a riddle fashioned by Daedalus himself. What awaits Alex in the Forest of Factors? Can Archimedes solve the equation in time? Can the Guardians stop this invincible challenger?

A symbol unknown, a riddle unsolved, a maze guarded by a monster, a race against time to find the secrets of the Circulus de Potentia and the most precious thing in the world.

Guest post: Celebrity Madness by author Summer Fox



"Hollywood, by definition, is a lie," or so says "It Girl" wanna-be Alyssya Glenellen in Summer Fox's steamy new send-up of Hollywood celebrity, tabloid media, and books about Hollywood celebrity and tabloid media. Frustrated fashion model Alyssya is on the fast track to become Sweetheart of the Paparazzi, traipsing through a Wonderland of narcissistic leading men, egocentric directors, cut-throat actresses, neurotic billionaires, and addicted sports heroes. Unfortunately, someone keeps threatening to strip, strap, strangle, gag, bag, host, slice, and dice her. What's worse, she was caught by a photographer with a hole in her panties, and it's splashed across the "Scene" page of the Los Angeles Times.

Book blogging: help getting over the reviewing slump?


Hello all! 

I hope you've all been doing really well. I've been on holidays for the past week. I had a wedding to go to in Turkey. I had a wonderful week, the weather was just bliss.

Before my holiday I had my diagnosis of inflammatory arthritis confirmed. I had an idea of what was going on. I have had joint pain for the past 2 years but consultants were reluctant to put a label on me until they saw visible swelling. Recently my fingers and ankles have started swelling very badly so that seemed to be enough for them.

Inflammatory arthritis is an autoimmune condition where your immune system over reacts and attacks the body's joints and organ linings. This means I will have to take chemotherapy drugs for the rest of my life. It wouldn't be as high a dose as a cancer patient would take but there are still some nasty side effects.

Book review Asking for it by louise o neill

Published: September 2015
Publisher: Quercus
Format: Soft back ARC
page count: 298

Thank you to Quercus and Hachette Ireland for providing the review copy

“What guy was going to say no if she handed it to him on a plate?...She was fucking asking for it

I was about 5 pages into Asking for it when I knew I wasn’t going to be able to put it down, that it was one of those books that would leave me racing to my computer to write this book review.

 It’s the start of the summer in a small town in Ireland. Emma is confident and knows she is beautiful. She uses her beauty to impress people. She adores attention and is only completely happy when all eyes are on her.

Emma is not a character that we are supposed to love off the cuff. She can be quite arrogant and in your face. I think this rams the point home even more. No matter who you are, whether you’re a saint or sinner, you don’t ask for this and you don’t deserve it.

I got quite angry when I read some of the reviews. One reviewer said she couldn’t feel sorry for Emma because of the way she behaved before the incident. Hello!!?? That’s the point. It doesn’t matter!

Guest post: Never give up on #writing by T C O Reilly


Go Book Yourself | 1/9/15

The story is about a man named Jacob(Jakes) Patrick Wallace who is sent back in time over various lifetimes. He thus carries knowledge of a global plague called the Husk plague, that causes people to go crazy and bloodthirsty, that will spread throughout the earth and that leaves only him with the power and knowledge to try and stop it.

 Throughout the book he deals with various people in his life including a love interest named Julia Baldacci and his younger brother named Andy. This first book mainly sets the scene of the oncoming plague by giving glimpses of the future in 2017 etc but mainly plays out over a period starting from 1995 up to date. The ebola virus which ravaged west Africa during 2014 plays a central theme in the book and helps to set the pace of the oncoming plague. 

The antagonist in the story is for the first part mainly played by a man called Rudansky who forms part of a larger group of people which is mainly referred to as the Company. The Company helps to set the scene for a larger worldwide conspiracy which dates back as far as the early 1600’s. With the VOC as the main background of this conspiracy, hence the settings in Amsterdam. 

Jakes however also starts to develop certain abilities which helps him to be stronger, faster and even some psychic abilities which helps him throughout the book from time to time. Later in the book it becomes clearer that even the main antagonist Rudansky is merely a puppet for the bigger threat namely a man called Lord wittenheer who is the creator of the company and who has lived since the 1600’s. 

Later in the book it also becomes clear that this man also happens to be the father of our main character unbeknownst to the main character though which is off course only revealed to him at the very ending of the book. The book ends with Jakes still in 2014 facing off against his father in a dream that he had, setting the scene for the second book which bring us closer to the release of the actual virus and the effect it will have on civilization, with the virus taking a equal but secondary role to jake’s main battle with the company who is still trying to reclaim the world as their own.
