This was a very emotional read. I love the way that A.M. Torres was able to evoke emotions from her readers. 

If you are a parent, I feel like this one will really hit you hard. It deals with children and the ways that we see the children treated will make us sick and heartbroken. 

I highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for a deep and meaningful read.

This cover could use a bit of an update. It doesn't quite draw a perspective reader in.

That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the writing style of Phillip Cornell. He really managed to bring a humorous and witty tone to this Non-Fiction novel. 

Phillip Cornell is a college graduate. He gained his degree in Biological Sciences, and currently works at a local pharmacy.  He is the only son of Harron and Connie Cornell, and the youngest of 3 children. In 2006 his father passed away due to colon cancer, and his mom became an inspiration to him and his family in the way she supported everyone. He has a passion for all types of competitive activity, with sports being the favorite. Overall he lives for different experiences to stimulate the mind, and firmly believes that life is something that has to be lived, read about, and dissected. His biggest weakness is beautiful women, and the thought of being a failure. Firmly believing everyone deserves their moment no matter how long or short it is, Phillip listens to anyone who has something to say. The more he writes. The more he realizes what he creates, is something that needs to be shared with someone other than himself.

Book Blitz: Wear White to Your Funeral by @Apocalipstick_ #excerpt #giveaway

Wear White to Your Funeral
Lisa Acerbo
Publication date: October 28th 2016
Genres: Mystery, Romance, Young Adult
Rory is your average high school senior. Or she was, until her mother banishes her to hell, also known as Trumbull, Connecticut. The small suburb with only a mall and movie theater, sure feels like the netherworld until Rory’s first day at her new school. That’s the day she meets Bowen, who begs her to join him on a class project. But when Bowen drags her to a graveyard after dark for research purposes, Rory wants to fly back home to Atlanta, or at least return to her aunt’s house unharmed and unmolested.
Nothing could go wrong, right? They talk, they laugh, and they wander among the tombstones looking for information on the local ghostly legend known as the White Lady. Then they have to run, but they cannot outrun a ghost. In addition to the ghostly woman, a half buried dead body leads Rory and Bowen into a deadly game of cat and mouse, but who is the killer? Is it human or something long dead and otherworldly?
The police are of little help, Rory’s aunt just wants her to remain safe, and Bowen, who she can’t stay away from, keeps finding ways to get her into more trouble than she has ever known. Whether breaking into a suspected killer’s house, being followed by a menacing ghost, or being stalked at school, Rory hopes finding the killer will put an end to the supernatural haunting. Before Rory can discover the identity of the killer, she is drawn into the mystery of the White Lady, which opens the door for some very real danger.
Rory tried to pay attention until she heard a husky whisper.
“Hey, new girl.” Rory turned toward the low voice. The boy with piercing blue eyes stared at her. “I’m Bowen.”
“I caught that,” she whispered back.
“Want to work together on the assignment?”
“Is it a group project?” Rory was confused by the offer.
“It is if you want it to be. Watch and learn. But first, say ‘yes.’”
He was definitely bad-boy cute. Rory giggled. “Yes.” Maybe school wouldn’t be as horrible as she imagined. She felt optimistic for the first time that day.
“Mrs. Miller?” Bowen interrupted.
“Yes, Bowen.” Miller sounded slightly irritated, but not really. It was like she already knew what Bowen planned to ask.
“The new girl.” He looked at Rory expectantly.
“Rory.” She filled in her name for him.
“I think Rory needs help with the assignment, being new here and all,” Bowen said.
“Do you now?” Mrs. Miller looked at him over the top of her librarian glasses, not believing for a minute his intentions were pure. “Why would you say that? I’m sure she is a capable young lady.”
“You do have extremely high expectations,” Bowen replied, causing twitters of laughter to erupt from around the class. “And she has not been exposed to the inverted pyramid.”
Rory had no idea what that was, so maybe she did need Bowen’s help.
“So true. So true. You are a wise man Bowen Hesse. I believe it’s a good idea you pair up with Rory and demonstrate those high expectations.”
“Every time, Mrs. Miller.”
Mrs. Miller made a noise that did not sound at all teacher-like. “I expect a higher word count if you two are pairing up.”
“Really?” He smiled at Rory and she noticed a slightly crooked tooth in an otherwise perfect smile.
“Yes, really.” The teacher said through her own smile. He shrugged. “You got it. One hundred words at least.”
The class chortled in unison.
“You’re a jokester, Bowen. Class,” she addressed everyone now, “the minimum word count for this assignment is 750. Bowen, for you and Rory, it should be 1000 words.”
His blue eyes widened. Groans quickly replaced the recent giggles that had echoed through the room.
Class resumed, and Rory heard ideas for articles ranging from pumpkin carving to the best Halloween candy. With less than twenty minutes before the bell would ring, the class divided into groups based on the section of the newspaper or yearbook they wanted to write for. She was the exception. Rory watched as Bowen pulled his desk over to her. He stood two or three inches taller than her in his University of Connecticut basketball t-shirt and faded jeans.
“So you up for writing about the White Lady?”
“You don’t want to brainstorm other topics?” Rory was disappointed. She knew nothing of the local legend and hoped to do an article on something she had some background knowledge about.
“We can, but I have a great idea for a story on the ghost.”
“Really?” Rory didn’t want to lose the chance to work with Bowen and make a friend. “In that case, sure, but I don’t really know anything about her, being from the South.”
“Where from?”
The broken record began to play. “Atlanta.”
“I want to know more. I’d like to go South one day.”
“For college?”
Bowen gave a non-committal shrug. His shirt climbed up his shoulder. The last words of his tattoo peeking out of the sleeve.
“What are you doing tonight?”
“Why?” Rory asked quietly.
“I can give you a crash course on the White Lady.” He ran a hand through his short, spiky hair. Disheveled, he looked slightly dangerous but even more attractive.
“Really?” Rory didn’t know where Bowen’s interest stemmed from. Back in Atlanta men like him would have left her — the bookworm, Honor Society, AP classes kind of student — alone, very alone.
“Sure.” He gave her a devilish wink.
Her heart stuttered. Her words followed. “Weellll, I have to have dinner with my aunt, but after that, I’m sure it will be okay.” She took a calming breath.
“Excellent.” A smile formed on Bowen’s lips. “That’ll be perfect. It will be dark when we go to the graveyard.”

book blitz

Book Title: Underneath It All (Country Heart) 
Author: Danielle Taylor 
Genre: Romance 
Release Date: October 26, 2016 
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions


book blurb

Callie earns her money as a stripper in Dallas. Every day she woke up and hated her childhood and how she had let it run the rest of her life. 

When she was younger she wanted to become an attorney. With perfect grades to get into Law school and an internship at a top Attorney office in Austin, she was bound to reach any goals she had.

One man ripped her life apart.

Her life turned dark and lonely. She hated herself and everyone around her. Hated every day she woke up and lived a life of hell. Numerous times she wished she could just end it all. 

Her life went down a path she wouldn’t wish upon anyone.

That was until Jace Thompson walked into her work and life. Jace makes her feel alive again and gives her a reason to want to be better. A reason to change her life and the path she was travelling. She wants to make something of her life for him to be proud of. 


“My eyes were locked on hers. I didn’t think I could move even if the place caught on fire. She stepped up in front of me with a questioning look on her face, but I didn’t move. I just focused on her beautiful face. 

After a long moment of gazing at each other she went to walk off. I stood and grabbed her wrist and pulled her back to me. She gazed up into my eyes as I lifted my hand to her stunning face and ran my thumb over her slightly parted lips. They were full and satin soft. 

I felt her shiver as I gently grazed my thumb down her neck and across her chest. Running my thumb along the edge of her top I whispered ‘Stay with me angel.’ She reminded me of a small delicate angel.” 

Jace’s football season ended early due to an injury. Then when his father died of a heart attack Jace had to give up his football career to take over the family ranch. 

Heading out one night looking for a way to feel alive and take away the pain, Jace headed for Platinum Girls where he comes across Callie. What he thought would be a long night of fun turned into much more.

Callie and Jace’s road ahead involves hidden truths, past affairs and ghosts. Will the love and fiery passion they share be enough to out run the bad?
