BOOK REVIEW - Sophie Washington: Things You Didn't Know About Sophie by Tonya Duncan Ellis

Sophie Washington: Things You Didn't Know About Sophie
Author: Tonya Duncan Ellis
Genre: Children's Fiction
Publication Date: January 12th, 2018

Book Description:
Oh, the tangled web we weave...

Sixth grader Sophie Washington thought she had life figured out when she was younger, but this school year, everything changed. She feels like an outsider because she's the only one in her class without a cell phone, and her crush, new kid Toby Johnson, has been calling her best friend Chloe. To fit in, Sophie changes who she is. Her plan to become popular works for a while, and she and Toby start to become friends. 

In between the boy drama, Sophie takes a whirlwind class field trip to Austin, TX, where she visits the state museum, eats Tex-Mex food, and has a wild ride on a kayak. Back at home, Sophie fights off buzzards from her family's roof, dissects frogs in science class, and has fun at her little brother Cole's basketball tournament. 

Things get more complicated when Sophie "borrows" a cell phone and gets caught. If her parents make her tell the truth, what will her friends think? Turns out Toby has also been hiding something, and Sophie discovers the best way to make true friends is to be yourself.

MY REVIEW

I rather enjoyed this tale. It was a simple story about the consequences of lying. It's nearing Sophie's eleventh birthday, and she wants the one thing everyone else has: a mobile phone. Of course, Sophie's parents are of the opinion that she's too young for a phone, so as Sophie tries to sway their decision, she goes to various lengths trying to make her friends believe that she has a new phone. When her lies start to catch up to her, however, she realises just how much of a pickle she's got herself into and has no idea how to get out it.

It was a short read with an important lesson for everyone. It definitely made me want to continue with the rest of the books in the series. I hope to see more character development throughout the series. Job well done.

An ancient power long kept dormant stirs in the shadows once more as one boy embarks on a quest to earn his freedom and the freedom of his world!

Yet how can he survive in a world where magic is illegal, half-breeds are hated, and the four countries are on the brink of war?

Genre: YA Romance

Book Description:
People always say they wish they could predict the future. But not me. I already know my future. I’m going to lose my sight. I don’t know exactly when, but it’s going to happen. And it’s the reason I’ll never fall in love.

At least that’s what I thought. Until one day a guy walks into my chem class and changes all that.

I thought for sure he’d avoid me after he saw how people at school treat me. The teasing. The nicknames. Just being seen with me is enough to ruin his reputation, yet this guy still wanted to date me. And he wouldn’t take no for an answer.

That’s how it began. How it ended is not at all what I expected. Ours is an unlikely love story.

Book Blitz & Giveaway - Painless by Marty Thornley




Painless
Author: Marty Thornley
Publication Date: January 12th, 2018
Genre: Adult Horror / Psychological Thriller

Book Desciption:
The debut psychological-horror novel from author Marty Thornley is a page-turning ride, a front row seat to a clinical trial gone horribly wrong.

For Greg Owens, this was supposed to be a chance to end years of back pain and escape his reliance on pain pills. If it all worked out, he could maybe even get back the life he left behind as the pills took control.

Instead, as the patients are cured of their physical pain, they encounter a different sort of pain building inside them – obsessive thoughts, depression, self-destruction. The side-effects grow worse, and the suspense ratchets tighter. The patients want answers and violent revenge, setting them on a collision course with a crazed doctor, determined to protect his life’s obsession.


What readers are saying…

“…most definitely a recommended read, though it’s probably not the best choice for those with a weak stomach.”

Gruesome and twisted. Awesome!!!”

“OMG this book. Holy heck the gruesome descriptions of blood and gore and guts was SO RAD. I found myself cringing and fidgeting and yes, even feeling a bit nauseous in some spots – but totally in a GOOD WAY! Painless was exactly what I wanted in a super-unique, creepy, shocking horror-thriller.”

I knew he was evil, lust, and darkness personified.

He should have terrified me, but he didn’t because I was just as messed up in the head as he was.

I was a spider trapped in his web.

I didn’t have it all figured out.

What I did know was Core was no Prince Charming, and I, for damn sure, wasn’t a princess.

There would be no fairy-tale ending for us.

It would be hard work, and more importantly, it would be real.

Life couldn’t be all about tiaras and knights riding in to save the day.

This was my give. This was his take.

And there was no going back.
