This Chick Read: Darken the Stars (The Kricket Series book 3) by Amy A. Bartol

Darken the Stars is the third and final book in this series, and I, like all of the other fans of this series are left saying “What?”  I loved how Kricket, who had been terrified of Kyon in the previous books, see’s his faults, but comes to care for him anyway.  Ok, if you’ve read my previous reviews for Under Different Stars and Sea of Stars, you know that Kyon has been cast as the evil character.  But, as with all great storytellers, this author gave us some insight into why he was so crazy, and also why Kricket was so important to him.

#RT16 Book Fair in Vegas

Saturday was the last day of our trip to the RT Convention in Vegas.  The Book Fair was from 10a-2p, and around 800 Authors were present.  Even though my book count at that point was 108, and I spent $110 shipping home two boxes this morning, there were a few book items that I still needed to have!  The people who had bought a week long convention pass got in a half hour earlier than the rest of the masses so you’ll note its kind of empty.  A half hour from when I took these photo’s, it was packed wall to wall!  Continue reading “#RT16 Book Fair in Vegas”

This Chick Read: Under Different Stars (The Kricket series Book 1) by Amy A. Bartol

What a great find!  I saw a tweet about this book with a quote that read “So she’s a skeezer?  What’s a skeezer?  A boyfriend stealer.  Lol.”  That one line made me curious enough to look this book up on Amazon, and the synopsis made it sound good enough to read.  As I started reading, the writing was so good, the main character, Kricket, was flawed and funny, that before I knew it, I had read the entire first book in the series and immediately bought the second.
