Synopsis:

On the day that 16-year-old Winter Starling had her life and dreams shattered by a sexual assault, she meets Kai, a boy from her high school obsessed with music. They develop a deep friendship, which comes to an abrupt end when Kai unexpectedly has to leave. Winter has no idea why he went or any way to contact him.

Ten years pass, and Winter has constructed a new reality for herself. Now living in Melbourne, she has a successful career in advertising and is engaged to Liam King, a star player in Australian Rules Football. Winter has a perfect life.

During a night out, Winter runs into Kai, now the lead singer of ‘The Stonevilles.’ Winter and Kai rekindle their friendship, and to everyone around them, their attraction is evident. With Kai back in her life, Winter’s past threatens to ruin her relationship with Liam and everything she has worked to achieve. But can she risk losing Kai a second time?

Emotional and edgy, Beautiful Facade is about love, loss, healing, self-discovery, and the messy battle between one’s head and one’s heart.

Goodreads / Amazon


Review:

The main thing that struck me in this book is the mention of sexual assault and the importance of mental health. Finding it in a romance book is very less, but the way Kathryn has woven the story in and around Winter’s life and mental health is something worth reading.

[TW: This books contains mentions of sexual assault]

From the start, we get to see the version Winter has used to shield herself from her past. This Winter is working fancy, lives fancy, behaves fancy and even has a fiancé that’s fancy. But this façade cracks when someone from Winter’s old life walks through that wall she had built up years ago.

I loved the tension that is between the two. It’s fresh and raw. It glued me to the book and had me anxious about the end. Second chances are hard to find, but Winter and Kai surely had luck in their favour.

A pleasant yet emotionally raw book about two people finding each other at the time it was least expected. Breaking down each other’s barriers and dealing with things that are too hard to bear. This book was as real as it could be. I loved every bit of it.


Author Bio:

The Shape of Stars Unknown by Sybil Le Pyrmont | Blog Tour & Interview

I’m so happy to share my review for The Shape of Stars Unknown Blog Tour! Let’s start…

Book Name: The Shape of Stars Unknown (The Aldarfall Saga, #1)
Author: Sybil Le Pyrmont
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy
Publication date: October 15th 2020

Synopsis:

World domination is the least of their problems.

A STRANDED DEMIGOD. Lau of the House of Feofar, troubled and headstrong, screwed up. Royally. Now he lives out his days in exile on Earth – the very planet he once tried to exterminate.

A RUDDERLESS MORTAL WOMAN. Silver Laing leads the ordinary life of a white-collar worker. Lonely and desperately in search of purpose and new horizons, she gets more than she bargained for when she is offered a mysterious job.

A CATACLYSMIC PLAN BILLIONS OF YEARS IN THE MAKING. When a deadly visitor from Lau’s shrouded past threatens to lay the world in ashes, Silver and Lau must form an unlikely alliance against ancient and far superior forces.

An alliance with the potential to shake the very foundation of the Universe.

Sizzling tension?
Secrets as old as time?
Splashes of humour?

If your answer to all of the above is ‘Hell, yeah!’ then The Shape of Stars Unknown is your guy. This first book in Sybil Le Pyrmont’s new urban fantasy adventure series, The Aldarfall Saga, will take you from Germany to Tibet, from Japan to Iceland and all the way to the other end of the Universe.

Goodreads / Amazon


Interview Questions:

1) When did you first realise you wanted to be a writer?

Truth be told, I can’t remember a time when I did not want to be a writer. Even before I read my first word, I stood wide-eyed before the novels at my local bookstore and wondered what magic skills were required to create such a little miracle and have it displayed on those shelves for the world to see. One of my greatest regrets is not having mustered the courage to try my hand at writing much, much earlier in life.

2) How long does it take you to write a book?

The rough draft of the complete Aldarfall Saga – at the time one single book of about 1,300 pages – took me seven months to complete. I then broke it into three parts, the first of which is now published as The Shape of Stars Unknown. Approximately eight years and countless revisions later, TSOSU has made it from rough draft to published book; I’m a reasonably fast writer, but my exasperating perfectionist streak makes me the slowest editor in the world (not to mention the day job, which gobbles up a substantial amount of time).

3) What do you think makes for a good story?

Disclaimer: this is my personal, highly subjective view. A good story needs to make me feel at home. It is a quality I find somewhat slippery to define, let alone explain. “At home” evokes visions of cosy mysteries or heartwarming Christmas stories with adorable puppies, right? Well, this is not at all what I mean, although I’ll gladly take the doggos off your hands.

Here are some examples of books that give me this particular homely feeling:

The Picture of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde)

Shibumi (Trevanian)

The Name of the Rose (Umberto Eco)

Into Thin Air (Jon Krakauer)

It (Stephen King)

Oni (Marc Olden)

Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling)

Hannibal (Thomas Harris)

Hagen von Tronje (Wolfgang Hohlbein)

Not one of these books is snuggly-puppy pleasant to read. One of them even is non-fiction. But they all make me feel comfortable. I stepped into a welcoming world from the very first time I read the very first syllable. Sometimes it’s the characters (like in Hagen von Tronje), sometimes it’s the writing style (Dorian Gray, Shibumi, Into Thin Air), sometimes it’s the philosophy or worldview (Dorian Gray, Shibumi) that gives me this strange, homey sensation. In extremely rare cases, a story combines all three and thus knocks my socks off (here’s looking at you, Shibumi).

And what elevates a story from good to great is when it makes me feel intelligent. This is what Shibumi and The Name of the Rose do, for example. Shibumi is supposed to be read as a satire on the spy thriller, and there are dozens of innuendos and references that I caught only upon reading it several times. I still discover something new every time I pick it up, not to mention that it makes me think, learn … and google. The latter, by the way, has been taken to extremes by The Name of the Rose. Keep your search engine handy when you read that one!

In short, a good story gives me a literary home and a few additional brain cells.

4) If you could be one character from the book, who would you be and why? 

Lau, my male protagonist. For all his faults – and he has many – he is a man of courage and extraordinary resilience. Certain events in his past have traumatised him deeply, but even though he has no active memory of them, he continues to fight these demons every day. He has lived for billions of years without losing his zest for life, and not only is he a free spirit, but he is an intellectual warrior. I would love to have just one ounce of his strength, mental and physical.

5) If you co-author a book with your favourite author, who would it be?

Definitely Trevanian. He was a cosmopolitan scholar with a brilliant, crystal-clear mind and a flair for wordplay, puns and fine irony. I have no idea what on earth I could have contributed to this co-authorship, but I would have learned the world from him. Oscar Wilde comes in a close second.

6) Your all-time favourite quotes.

“Writing is the only thing that when I do it, I don’t feel I should be doing something else.” (Gloria Steinem)

Among the gazillions of quotes on writing, this is the one that rings most true for me. Whatever I’m doing, all I want is get back to my desk. Whenever I’m there, all may not always be right with the world, but I am where I feel I’m supposed to be.

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” (Oscar Wilde)

“We’re fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.” (Japanese proverb)

These two go in the same direction. People will criticise you no matter what and no matter how hard you try to please them. You might just as well be yourself – way less exhausting, way more satisfying.

7) Can we expect a sequel or a new novel soon?

Both sequels to The Shape of Stars Unknown are written … technically. Due to the revisions and changes I made to the first book over the past years, however, books II and III require massive rewrites. I’m working on them as we speak.

As for new novels, I have several manuscripts in various stages of completion. One is a darker urban fantasy, one could be deemed magical realism, and two of them dabble in the realm of mythology. As excited as I am about these drafts, the sequels to TSOSU take precedence at this time.

8) A few words for our readers. 

The one thing I would like to say most of all is thank you. Thank you so much for taking the time to (virtually) meet me and The Shape of Stars Unknown. We all have many worries right now – health, family, friends, jobs – which makes me all the more grateful for your time!

You, the readers, are the most fundamental element in a writer’s universe. Your words carry immense weight, whether in the guise of a book review or as a comment on social media. Although a thick skin may be part of a writer’s toolbox, your opinions and observations can make or break our day. Either way – wield that power whenever you can, dear readers! We love to hear from you!

Author Bio:

Sybil Le Pyrmont was born in Germany and was raised on the Canary Islands (that Gallic name is a pseudonym – her actual name has as much flair as a tax return). Although she now resides in Frankfurt, Germany, her heart has been beating for Tokyo ever since she spent a year in that city and discovered her epic love for all things Japan. That includes, to her acute embarrassment, the Shinagawa train station jingle she has installed as her ringtone. When Sybil isn’t writing, or dreaming of the anonymous donor who will some day gift her a house in Japan, she splits her time between her airline day job and long rants about the sunshine and the always-too-hot weather.

Sybil writes urban fantasy adventure to whisk her readers away to realms of imagination that have a distinct possibility of existing somewhere in the depths of the Universe.

A Royal Christmas Quandary by Samantha Hastings | Blog Tour

I’m so happy to share my review for A Royal Christmas Quandary Blog Tour! Let’s start…

Book Name: A Royal Christmas Quandary
Author: Samantha Hastings
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: October 6th, 2020
Book Acquired: Xpresso Book Tour, ARC
Ratings: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Synopsis:

Readers looking for a light, fun read full of holiday mischief will be delighted by Samantha Hastings’ A Royal Christmas Quandary, perfect for fans of A Christmas Prince.

When you spend Christmas in a castle, anything is possible.

1860. Lady Alexandrina Gailey is looking forward to a cozy holiday at Windsor Castle with her best friend, Princess Alice, and her long-time crush, Lord George Worthington. But Drina’s plans are all but dashed when Alice’s parents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, declare that Alice must choose one of two royal princes to become engaged to before Christmas.

There’s just one problem: George, a junior member of the Foreign Office, has accidentally misplaced one of the princes.

Together, Drina and George scour the town of Windsor for the missing prince, desperately hoping to deliver him to the royal dinner party with the queen none the wiser. They might just need a royal Christmas miracle to pull it off.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo


My Review:

I’ve been a fan of Royal stories since Prince William and Katherine got married back in 2011. My research about the Royal family is pretty good and knowing that someone else shares the same level of dedication is truly exciting.

After watching various Royal sitcoms such as The Crown and Reign, I have realised that a Royal household cannot carry on without any dramas or scandals. A Royal Christmas Quandary happens to celebrate a very amusing scandal that allegedly takes place in Queen Victoria’s reign.

This book is a perfect start to the Christmas reading. The characters, Drina and George and so well-developed. Drina, being an-almost royal knows that after her father’s death, she won’t inherit his estate, makes it her duty to convince Queen Victoria to change the laws. I loved the strong nature of Drina trying to take a stand in time where this was not easily possible.

George, on the other hand, is a far off cousin but is determined to prove to his Duke of a father that he is capable enough to manage the works of the Foreign affairs, even if it’s not to his liking. Being the second son always puts him at a disadvantage with his overachieving brother standing next to him.

When the Crown Prince of Germany disappears, under George’s unofficial watch, matters seem to get a bit serious as the Crown Prince would be a suitor to Princess Alice, Queen’s daughter and Drina’s best friend. Drina being the only sole companion and trusted confidant of George’s tries to help find the Crown Prince. What ensues, is a series of comical situations and fixes that made me laugh a lot.

The best part about this book is the secretive romance between Drina and George. The author has weaved it into the book so perfectly that it feels like a mini fairy-tale with lots of fun drama. The chapters are short and flow from one to another in an organised manner which is fun to read. The third person POV shows both the character’s thoughts which makes it so easy to understand their feelings.

In all, I loved the book and recommend it to those who love themselves a Royal family drama. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and all the thoughts and opinions above are mine.

Book Name: Guardian of the Sky Realms
Author: Gerry Huntman
Genres: Young Adult, Urban Fantasy
Publication date: September 1st, 2020
Published By: Meerkat Press
Book Acquired: ARC, Publisher
Ratings: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Synopsis:

Maree Webster—an “almost-emo” from the western suburbs of Sydney—hates school, has few friends, and is obsessed with angels and fallen angel stories. Life is boring until she decides to steal a famous painting from a small art gallery that has been haunting her dreams: swirling reds, grays and oranges of barely discernible winged figures. There, she meets a stranger who claims to know her and stumbles into a world where cities float in the sky, and daemons roam the barren, magma-spewing crags of the land far below. And all is not well—Maree is turning into something she loves but at the same time, fears. Most fearful of all is the prospect of losing her identity—what makes her Maree, and more importantly, what makes her human. Guardian of the Sky Realms takes the reader on a journey through exotic fantasy lands, as well as across the globe, from Sydney to Paris, from the Himalayas to Manhattan. At its heart, it is a novel about transformation. Book two of the series will be released in 2021.

Machiavellian by Bella Di Corte | Blog Tour

I’m so happy to share my review for the Machiavellian Blog Tour! Let’s start…

Book Name: Machiavellian (Gangsters of New York, #1)
Author: Bella Di Corte
Genres:
Adult, Romance, Suspense
Publication Date: May 8th 2020
Book Acquired: ARC, Xpresso Book Tours
Ratings: 4 stars! 

Synopsis:

I hungered to be seen.

There were three things I knew about Capo Macchiavello:

He was gorgeous.
He was reclusive.
He was considered one of New York’s most savage animals.

And he wanted me as his wife. A simple arrangement – you do for me, I do for you. Nothing owed, no expectations. Except for one: never leave.

Life was never that simple, though. By the age of twenty-one, I was parent-less, jobless, and homeless, and I had come to learn the hard way that nothing was ever free. Even kindness comes with strings.

Capo might’ve been the only man to ever see me, but I had made a vow to myself: I would never owe anyone anything. Most of all, the man I called boss.

I killed to stay hidden.

Mariposa Flores thought she owed nothing to no one, but she owed everything…to me, the ghost the world had once called The Machiavellian Prince of New York.

Machiavellian is the first of three books set in the savage world of the Gangsters of New York series.

Author: MLJ Quigg

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Date of Publication: 2nd September, 2020

Book Description: 

Rock royalty.

That’s what people call me.

But all it took was a single phone call to bring me to my knees.

Five years later, my life has changed irrevocably forever.

Though someone lurks in the shadows threatening to tear all that I love apart. 

An obsession of the worst kind. 

Can I keep the woman I love safe?

Or will everything burn to ash… 

Amazon


My interview with the author MLJ Quigg:

1) Tell us something about yourself.

I am a married mum of 3 adult kids. I live in a smallish country town between Sydney and Australia’s capital Canberra. I have 6 brothers and 1 sister and a half sister. I am a survivor of domestic abuse. Not much more to say. I am me!

2) What made you start writing?

A dream. That’s what started it all. 

3) If given a chance to co-author a book with another author, who would it be and why?

Oh boy, so many choices. I honestly couldn’t say. Either Penny Dee or Leah Sharelle. I’d love to just get in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s brain one day, don’t know whether I’d be worthy to write with her though, I can always dream.

4) If you could be any character from the book world, who would you choose?

Ushara from Born Of Legend by Sherrilyn Kenyon… Oh my god, that girl is awesome!

5) Paperbacks or digital copies, what’s your preference?

For everyday reading – digital

For looking and not touching – Paperback.

6) What was one important lesson that you learned while writing Jax? Any writing tips that you can share with us?

Take your time and make sure you like the story. If you have to go back and re-write, that’s okay. A subpar book is not okay.

Writing tips, research editors. Find one that fits your personality and even talk to other authors they have under them. These are essential, can’t say that enough.

7) Are you working on any new projects? When will we see them?

I am. Writing Dozer (Thorny Devils Book 3) and I hope it comes out soon. Life is crazy at the moment, and I can’t write as much as I’d like to.

8) What is your favorite quote from Jax?

I leave with a light heart,

I don’t feel bad that we’re apart.

My good wishes are with you,

May you reach where you wish to.

You expect me to be sad I don’t have your love,

But I’m returning it to you with a shove.

And I know that must really suck,

But I don’t really give a fuck.

9) Which author do you look up to?

So many. Sherrilyn Kenyon. She is going through hell at the moment and she still keeps a positive attitude and she writes awesome books.

10) A few words for our reader? 

Thanks for taking the time to listen and I hope you enjoy your time here and my books. Peace out.
