Page Turner!

I’m been a Whovian for years now and when I seen that Blogging For Books had Doctor Who. I had to get it. This book was given to me for a truthful review.
It was neat seeing the Doctor Who world go from T.V. to book. I’ve been wanting to read Doctor Who books and now I have. I enjoyed it! It was different then watching it but the book came to life inside my head as I read. The writing style is nice and easy to understand. Sometimes in the Doctor Who world there is a lot going on in one show. I was a bit fitty if the author would be able to write the craziness, wittiness and the Doctor Who’s character the way we fans see in the show. But the author did. This book is a page turner and I can’t wait to get more Doctor Who Books.
As for the story itself, it was a good! It’s a classic who did it, stop the ‘bad guy’ persay and save the world; we’ve come to love from the Doctor and his friends. There’s a few twists and turns but all in all a good story that any Doctor Who fan will love!

External Forces: The Laws of Motion, Lex I by: Deborah Rix

It's 100 years since the Genetic Integrity Act was passed and America's borders were closed to prevent genetic contamination. Only the enemy, dysgenic Deviants, remain beyond the heavily guarded border. The Department of Evolution carefully guides the creation of each generation and deviations from the divine plan are not permitted.
When 16-year-old Jess begins to show signs of deviance she enlists in the Special Forces, with her best friend Jay, in a desperate bid to evade detection by the Devotees. Jess is good with data, not so good with a knife. When the handsome and mysterious Sergeant Matt Anderson selects her for his Black Ops squad, Jess is determined to figure out why. 
As her deviance continues to change her, Jess is forced to decide who to trust with her deadly secret, because if the enemy doesn't kill her first, the army will. In the maelstrom of first kisses and first kills, treason, betrayal, and heartbreak, Jess must discover what's actually out there, in the Deviant wasteland over the border, if she has any hope of making it to her 17th birthday.

External Forces: The Laws of Motion, Lex I by: Deborah Rix 

External Forces is a rollercoaster throughout the book. Ups and downs, fast and slow pacing. The more you read into the book the more I felt and understood the characters. Jess would have to be one of my favorites in this book. She wakes up with a dark mark, meaning she is a deviant! Deviant is someone who is usually killed when exposed. This book follows Jess and the world she lives in. The book is one that kept me reading throughout the pages, even with I felt the book was at a slow pace but is was because a fast pace was coming. There is a lot in this story, love, action, and cliffhanger! Yes, there is one of those! It's a book that science fiction fans will like!

Elle Klass Blog Tour + Giveaway

Elle Klass Bio:
Elle was born into this world in Redwood City, California and spent her childhood growing in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. She graduated from the University of North Florida with a bachelor’s degree in education. For fun she reads, spends time at the beach, travels, and enjoys time with her favorite friends, and family. She is a night-owl known to be a hermit during rainy days, as she has a love for sun, and is mostly found poolside over the hot, humid summer months.

Baby Girl Book 3: City By The Bay
Follow Cleo, who has once again changed her identity, this time to Shanna Nu, an orange moppy-headed homely girl, or so she tries to portray, as she travels to San Francisco seeking employment with the La Tige Detective Agency to search for answers. La Tige, a hard, sloppy man, lacking in social graces manages to worm a way right into her heart. Finally entering adulthood, Cleo realizes who she is inside, and through La Tige and a few other friends, she finds that true affection is forcing her to desperately pursue the answers to the mystery surrounding her birth and biological family. She manages to tie up a few loose ends while unraveling a few more.

Excerpt 3
No sooner had I walked out the door than I heard footsteps from behind. Fear surfaced inside me as the terrors of my past came rushing back. I slipped around the corner and waited. Soon enough, a form drew closer as I watched its shadow through the street lights glide across the pavement. I positioned myself and brought my leg out in front of me as the shadow person walked past. This caused him to trip and fall flat on his face. Familiar tufts of chestnut hair crashed forward, “Bub? Oh, I’m so sorry. I thought maybe…nevermind. Why are you following me?” I asked as I offered my hand to help him up. His nose was bloody. It seemed my self defense skills had that effect on people, I thought, remembering when I threw Halette over my shoulder in Paris, twice.
He took my hand and sheepishly said, “I just think you’re beautiful and wanted to know you better.” Ay yi yi, what was it with men?
“Alright, look, I feel bad and your nose is bleeding. I’ll buy you a drink,” I offered.
His face lit up and a huge smile creased his lips as blood slowly trickled down his chin. “That’d be nice.”
I bought him a drink while the bartender readied a rag and ice for his nose. “It might be broken,” I said, feeling pangs of guilt.
The bartender, a young dark haired woman with surreal emerald eyes, chuckled as she said, “He’ll be okay. At least once a week he incurs the wrath of one young lady or another.”
“So you’re a lady chaser and I was the menu for tonight?” I asked Bub. 

Cleo Unplugged - Interview

Q- What is your name?

A-      My name is Cleo, that was Einstein’s name for me. Currently, I go by the name Shanna. In the past, I have also used the name Justine. I hope to go back to Cleo legally. As far as my birth name I have yet to find that out.

Q-  What are your hobbies?

A-      I enjoy cooking. My mom never did and we lived off hot dogs, grilled cheese and anything out of a can or box, yuck! Then I spent some years on the streets and ate anything that was edible. It was that or starve. Once my life settled down with Einstein I decided to start meddling in our kitchenette and learned to create art out of food.

Q-  Out of the various places you’ve lived do you have a favorite?
A-      It seems I’ve spent my life running from everything and some unseen but known danger that surrounds me. I enjoyed living in Paris and learning about a new culture. I love San Francisco. It’s a beautiful city. At night, everything sparkles and the hills seem to call my name. Most of all I have met the best people In S.F. that I could ever hope to meet. They say the home is where the heart and my heart belongs to Kacy and La Tige. Fetch is another story.

Q- A question I’m curious about and I know others are as well. It’s personal so I hope you don’t mind giving us some insight. You keep meeting dream men and yet you always leave them, why?
A-      That is personal but I’ll answer it. I don’t really know. I’m still heartbroken over Einstein he’s always on my mind but I have accepted our fate so that’s not it. The men I meet just aren’t right or the timing is all wrong. I need to understand my roots first before I go plunging into a relationship that may end up with children. So maybe one day when I’m ready the right man will come along. 

Q- You spent your youth homeless; what advice do you have for other kids with similar circumstances?
A-      Always observe your surroundings and don’t trust everyone. There are too many people out there who want to use children on the streets. I survived because I learned them quickly. I stuck to myself and my senses were always on alert. I wasn’t afraid to stand up for myself or too ashamed to run when I needed. In fact, I ran a lot, most of the time. I wouldn’t suggest breaking and entering. I feel bad for many of my crimes, even though it was survival. 

Q- You encountered a huge change in lifestyle when you went to Paris yet you didn’t let it go to your head. How did you manage that?
A-      I spent most my time hiding out. When I had to face the crowds, I was paparazzi shy. I hated their cameras always blinding me. The wealth was great but never was it mine; Didier is a kind and generous man. I never saw any of it as permanent. My life has always been one of transition.

Q- What accomplishment are you most proud of in your life?
A-      The fact that I’m still here and thriving.

Q- You are on a quest to find answers to your past and a family you never knew you had. What would you say to them if they were here now?
A-      A few very unchoice words.. I’m curious about them but have no plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. I want to know what went through their knuckle heads to bring such a life as mine onto an innocent baby. They will get a piece of my mind when I’m sure who they are. They might as well save face and not use any excuses.

Q-  Describe yourself in three words?
A-      Determined, scared, persistant
