Blog Tour/ Cinderella Necromancer

 

About the book:

Cinderella, Necromancer
Author: F.M. Boughan
Publication Date:  September 5, 2017
Publisher:  Month9Books

 Darkness can only be controlled by those with the darkest of hearts.

Ellison lost her mother at an early age. Now, sixteen, her father has found love again. He’s happy and doesn’t quite notice that Ellison does not get along with his new wife or her vicious daughters.

When Ellison discovers a necromantic tome while traveling the secret passages of her father’s mansion, she wonders if it could be the key to her eventual freedom.

Until then, she must master her dark new power, even as her stepmother makes her a servant in her own home. And when her younger brother falls incurably ill, Ellison will do anything to ease his pain, including falling prey to her stepmother’s and stepsisters’ every whim and fancy.

Stumbling into a chance meeting with Prince William during a secret visit to her mother’s grave feels like a trick of fate when her stepmother refuses to allow Ellison to attend a palace festival where she might see him once more.

But what if Ellison could see the kind and handsome prince again? What if she could attend the festival? What if she could have everything she’s ever wanted and deserved by conjuring spirits to take revenge on her cruel stepmother? And what if she actually liked watching her stepmother suffer?

As Ellison’s power grows, she loses control over the evil spirits meant to do her bidding. And as they begin to exert their own power over Ellison, it becomes harder to tell whether it is she or her stepmother who is the true monster.

CINDERELLA NECROMANCER is CINDER meets ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD and was inspired by a real medieval grimoire of necromancy from 15th-century Germany

About the author:

F.M. Boughan is a bibliophile, a writer, and an unabashed parrot enthusiast. She can often be found writing in local coffee shops, namely because it’s hard to concentrate with a cat lying on the keyboard and a small, colorful parrot screaming into her ear. Her work is somewhat dark, somewhat violent, somewhat hopeful, and always contains a hint of magic.

National Read A Book Day

Today Is National Read a Book Day September 6th

Did you know that today is National Read a Book Day?

Today I am attempting to squeeze in as much reading as I can between doing the regular house hold chores.

What are you reading today?

I am reading this because I am on a blog tour for the book this week:

Cinderella Necromancer by [Boughan, F.M.]

Sunday’s In Bed With……The Party

Welcome to our Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today!

This is being hosted by two of the sweetest people I have to privilege of knowing in real life Kate and Kim. Sadly we don’t talk like we use to because you know real life happens but there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of them both. If you click on the banner it will take you right to the Midnight Book Girl blog.

Good Morning everyone. Hope you all had a good week this past week. It was a little busy with back to school. Michael went back on Thursday and he is starting grade 9. So we were running around picking up a few supplies and clothes.

I was a little burnt out from last week’s read-a-thon so I didn’t get to read like I wanted to and we had some late nights.

I did pick up The Party and I am currently reading this now:

The Party: A Novel by [Harding, Robyn]

So far so good.

Not sure what I will read after this as I have to check to see if I have any blog tours coming up.

Wishing everyone a great weekend.

The Mailbox Post August 28th to September 2nd

Since starting my blog back in August of 2008 I always try to share what books I get with you so that you can see what I will be reading and I am always looking for a place to link them so that others can see them so from now on I will be sharing my links on Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. As Marlene has offered to co-host Stacking The Shelves with Tynga’s Reviews. Marlene is a new to be blogger and I look forward to checking out her blog.

Its been quite a while since I have done a weekly In My Mailbox post. This week I got a few books:

I am part of a blog tour for Awoke in the next few weeks so be sure to come and  and check out my review for this.

What did you get this week?

September is Library Card Sign Up Month

This September marks the 30th anniversary of National Library Card Sign Up Month. This year’s Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chairs is crimefighting DC Super Heroes, the Teen Titans.

As honorary chairs, DC’s Teen Titans will remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.

Do you have a library card? Do your kids have library cards?

Every time I have moved to a new city I always made it a point to go and get a library card because they are free to get and you can borrow books, magazines, video games, dvds, music and so much more. Since living in Montreal I have had four library cards at four different libraries but when the island of Montreal merged a lot of the local cities didn’t so now you have to pay to be a member of these libraries so now I only go to the two libraries that are in my area because as a resident I don’t have to pay.

I have noticed that over the summer we borrow alot more books/magazines/cds then any other time of the year and that is due to the fact that Michael does various library activities and it makes returning books so much easier then other times of the year.

So for the month of September,  I plan on trying to review some library books. I managed to pick up a whole bunch of books that I don’t think I would have would picked up otherwise and a bunch of books off my wishlist to read. I will also be showcasing some of the cds/movies and magazines I have borrowed as well.

Do you take advantage of your local library? What do you tend to borrow the most?

He has no voice, or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.

Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.

His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.

Until a human kills her…

Sixteen year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx
invade, annihilating entire cities, taking control of the Earth. Isolated in
the wilderness, Raven and her friends have only a fragment of instruction from
the human resistance.

Shelter in place.

Which seems like good advice at first. Stay put. Await rescue. Raven
doesn’t like feeling helpless but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel
only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit,
their survival comes to depend on trusting each other…

Sunday’s In Bed With… Bout of Books 20

Welcome to our Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today!

This is being hosted by two of the sweetest people I have to privilege of knowing in real life Kate and Kim. Sadly we don’t talk like we use to because you know real life happens but there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of them both. If you click on the banner it will take you right to the Midnight Book Girl blog.

I am late in sharing this post and for some reason it was scheduled to post and never actually post and I am sure that was my setting it to draft instead because I knew I had to add more books to this list.

This past week was Bout of Books 20 and I actually decided to take part because I really wanted to tackle some review books and some of my own personal books. I admit I made some huge goals with what I wanted to get through and how much I wanted to read. Sadly a few real life things took place and reading was pushed to the side.

The next Bout of Books 21 read-a-thon is happening   1/8/2018 — 1/14/2018 which is the perfect time for me with my son back in school after Christmas break and we will only have hockey in the evenings/weekends so I am excited for that one.

So this is what I read this past week:

This was the first book I finished up from last week and I really enjoyed it. I am on a book tour for this so my review will be up soon.

Body Parts by [Kapp, Jessica]

The read these:

Donna (The Girls of Spindrift Book 2) by [Andrews, V.C.]

Donna is a review book that I wanted to read and now I am dying to read the next ones. I realized after reading these few V.C Andrews books that I missed reading them so I am hoping to  read more from now on.

Seven Days of Us: A Novel by [Hornak, Francesca]

Seven Days of us was another review book that I read and really enjoyed this one as well. I love discovering new books and new authors. Review will be soon.

This is another review book that I really enjoyed. It takes place in NYC and it was a quick and fast read.

Cloaked In Red by [Velde, Vivian Vande]

This has been sitting on my TBR for a few years now and figured it would be a quick and fun read and it was really good. I loved reading the various retellings of Little Red Riding Hood.

This was actually a book I just bought and read it fairly quickly. I will be doing something with the author in December.

Finally the last book I read this week was this one. I believe this is my first time reading anything by Suzanne Young and I have to say I really enjoyed this. I might have to check my TBR because I am sure I have a few of her books on my shelf.

On Monday I plan on starting:

The Party: A Novel by [Harding, Robyn]

I am sure I will be done this so the next book I will pick up will be:

Caroline: Little House, Revisited by [Miller, Sarah]

This is a review book that I have been dying to read.

How did your reading go this week:
