Took some time off for the holidays so this is a shorter posting about bookish news since December 16th, 2013.

This is my own version of a weekly bookhaul post where  I’ll be telling you about all of the books I got this week, whether print or e-book plus all things new on fuonlyknew.

I got a few books this week, some free, some for review, and some I purchased just for my reading pleasure.

I also post reviews on another blog aknifeandaquill . It’s all about horror. If someone doesn’t die, we don’t do it here!


Here’s some I picked up to review on both blogs. Double exposure for the author:)

Cover art is very important to me. It needs to show something about the story inside the book and in one way or another, capture my attention.

Orenda sure caught mine!

Check out Orenda and hop over to add it to your TBR. I did!

Orenda cover


Title: Orenda
Author: Ruth Silver
Expected Publication: Spring 2014
Publisher: Patchwork Press
Genre: YA, Fantasy
A sword wielding girl, an eternal suit and an alternate  universe.

Lil has a gift, one she never thought  possible as she finds herself awake after a strange dream with the tell-tale  sign that what she dreamt was in fact real.  The dreamscape, was more than  just a premonition it happened.  She’d been momentarily tossed into another  dimension.  Where most would consider her crazy, not her best friend  Bray.

In another reality, one similar and yet  slightly different Willow has been kidnapped by the sorceress turned demon,  Eilith.  Rawlie, Willow’s friend and companion crosses to our universe for  help and brings Lil into his world.  Filled with frightening creatures and  magical elements, Lil demands to go home, until she discovers Bray has been  taken by Eilith as well.  Unable to watch her best friend die, she joins  forces with Rawlie, Jamie and the others to hunt down Eilith and rescue those  they care about.
