Dark as a starless night and black as a cavern of coal…

When a psychic warns her that leaving town may mean her death, Tessa still cannot stay when she uncovers a potential lead to her brother and sister. Not even if she must go alone and risk losing it all: Tristan, her family, and even her life.

No Vain Loss (No Ordinary Star, #3)


Title: No Vain Loss (Book 3 of the no ordinary star  series)

Author: M. C. Frank

Genre: YA, Dystopia, Futuristic


A soldier is summoned to the North Pole,

days before the year changes, told to fix the great Clock for a celebration. He has no idea what to do.
A girl, hunted for the crime of being born, almost dies out on the ice. She is rescued by the last polar bear left alive.
A library waits for them both, a library built over a span of a hundred years, forgotten in the basement of an



Today I am reviewing No Vain Loss by M. C. Frank, this is the third installment to the series and I adored it. I cannot believe how wonderful M. C. Frank wrote this series.

I want to start by thanking M.C.Frank for giving me these copies of her book to review. I adore the series. I can’t wait to read more from her.

In the first book, it’s about the Match Girl and the Tin Soldier and it is the end of 2524. The year is close to an end and heading into 2525. There is no such thing as love, hunger or illness. Woman and Men aren’t allowed to be near each other.

The main character, Felix (Tin Soldier) is sent to the North Pole to fix a clock for the celebration at the end of 2524. He finds a girl when he goes and well you can see where the problem with that would start right?

I won’t go into book two, but I will leave the link to my review — here.

book three, its the end of 2524, Felix has a plan, he has his fire, what could go wrong?

I really enjoyed reading from Felix’s point of view, he wasn’t like a normal boy, everything was so new so emotional to him that he wasn’t this “I’m hiding my feelings blah blah blah” he didn’t know what love was, what it felt like to be hungry and to have feelings for friends and people he was close to. So seeing a person who didn’t know feelings have feelings, felt real.

Astra, my favorite person, is such a strong female character, she’s been through so much, just protect her okay?

(yes, I found a way to add in an eminem gif)

Let me just insert my goodreads update here … “Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh. Yesssssssssssssssssssssssss. MY HEART WAITED SO LONG FOR THIS MOMENT!!!!! And it’s so perfect, I’m like a ball of mushy happiness right now. 😭😍”

Image result for emotions gif

I went through many emotions during this installment of the series, I cried, I laughed, I cried more…, I almost threw my phone… I wanted certain characters to die. (:

There was a lot of action in this one, a lot of character development as well. I think from beginning to end Astra and Felix had changed a lot and saw things differently, thought differently. They both have become such strong characters.

I will recommend this series to everyone, I finished all of them pretty fast. All the books were easy to read, they’ll definitely keep you on the edge of your seat.

You know when you’re watching a TV show or Movie and an epic battle comes on and you get shivers because DAMN it was good. When Ursa came onto the page, I shivered. It was just as good when Daenerys came onto screen riding Drogon. DROGONMYBOY.gif

To wrap this up, it was truly amazing. I was most sad that the series has come to an end. A beautiful, wonderful, disastrous end. This series deserves all the stars in the world, I cannot put into words how much I adored every single page, every character, every Ursa scene, and the beginning of B3 was by far the second best thing. The first is Ursa…obviously 😉

Air Awakes Series Book Tag

Air Awakes Series Book Tag

Hello, Luvs!

You may remember mine a Library Luv’s book tag we started up when we first began blogging. We took a break after we ran out of ideas for the tags, but finally have come back with new themes for the tags. Instead of having a monthly theme for the said month, it’s going to be a tag based off of one book we’ve chosen for the month. I’m really excited to do all the tags and show you all of them.

Now for the tag, @Library_luv made the beautiful design for the tag using the covers of all the AA books, I adore how she combines them and the background.

Book tag:

Vhalla is a library apprentice, if you could have an apprenticeship where or what would it be?

Oy, I honestly don’t know…. An apprenticeship for artists….? Does that work? I don’t care, I’m running with it cause I like the idea XD.

Vhalla battles with many friends by her side, which one of your blogger/booktuber friends would you like to battle alongside?

Really, just post one tweet and we could have the entire book community … yikes, I feel bad for the person who said they shipped the wrong people.

There’s so many amazing people in the book community, it’s so hard to choose one.

Aldrik finds a rose garden to be his quiet spot, what’s your favorite place to read?

I really don’t have a favorite place to be. So I’m going to go with a more “dream spot” rather than my current favorite place. If I could choose any place… I’d want it to be outside or in like a sunroom… bugs. Yuck.

Oooo, sunroom, maybe with plants everywhere and by a lake or something. That sounds so pretty. And it’s mandatory to have animals …

If Baldair invited you to the Gala, what color would you choose for your gown/suit?

Easy black and red. All black, with red designs…blood red designs. Totally–possible–nope totally would attempt to wear a crown and pass as a queen of a faraway land… and fail… I suck at lying.

Affinities are dangerous in the Solaris Empire. There is Watrrunners, FireBearers, EarthBreakers and WindWalkers which would you be?

WindWalker, you can control air … that’s pretty cool because air kills fire if there’s enough, air survives under water, and air is everywhere. Plus you could fly, have someone you don’t like? Fling them off a cliff!

Want a personal space bubble? Push everyone away from you.

Those are pretty mean, but hey! We can fly and do many other cool things I won’t mention for book spoiler reasons 😉

What book would you recommend vhalla if you ran into her at the library?

I have to go to my first book that started my love for reading, Unenchanted by Chanda Hahn and everything else she has written. The iron butterfly series, adore it. Lost girl, PETERRRRRRR.

Baldairs Golden Gaurd consists of six members. If you had your own guard, who would be five book characters including yourself in it?

100% Baldair, I chose him over Aldrik from the beginning. Nobody! Can! Hurt! Him! He’s precious to this world and needs protecting even if he doesn’t look like Tom Hiddleston.

I would choose Baldair, jax, Larel, Vhalla, and Aldrik. Yes I know I forgot Daniel but I NEVER LIKED HIM AS MUCH AD EVERYONE ELSE.

Between Jax, Daniel, and Baldair who would you Kiss, Marry and kill?

Easy. kill Daniel, he’ll be fine. Marry Baldair, protect him from the world and not let anything hurt him, and kiss Jax.

I kinda feel bad, I’m being really mean to Daniel… I’m sorry I just have priorities …

Vhallas favorite dessert is Lemon cake, what kind of dessert would you like to eat while reading a book?

At this very second? Nothing. Any other day, probably everything that has sugar.

But sugar cookies are the best. Hands down.

Keyword: sugar -_-

In the Air Awakens series, what cover do you love most?

Most definitely Crystal Crowned.

I adored everything Merilliza did with the series covers and have become such a huge fan of her amazing work. All the covers in the AA series were beautiful but CC stood out the most. Obviously being the last book in the series it had too. I love the colors and everything about how it looked… and Vhalla and Aldrik on the covers. Agh, perfection.

If you participate in this tag, make sure to tag either Sabrina or me so we can see and share it!


A Woman Scorned by Rebecca Howie Blog Tour

A Woman Scorned by Rebecca Howie Blog Tour

Hello Luvs!


Today I am participating in Rebecca’s blog tour! Below will be some info on the second novel of the series and an interview with the author herself! keep reading for more ;P

I am so excited if you guys don’t remember I had done an interview with Rebecca Howie not long ago.

Character Chats ~ Rebecca Howie

About The Book: A Woman Scorned (book 2 in the Sam Beckett mysteries) 



Title: A Woman Scorned

Author: Rebecca Howie


Returning home days after leaving town wasn’t a decision Sam Beckett made lightly, and the newspaper articles detailing her shooting aren’t making her choice any easier to accept.

When a therapist is found dead in her office, Sam decides to work with CID and Detective Marshall on the case, hoping that the dead woman’s troubles will be enough to help her forget her own. but with Dr Weiss’ perfect image slowly crumbling as the investigation progresses, Sam finds that she isn’t the only person hiding behind a lie, and that uncovering someone else’s could have been what led Dr Weiss to her death.



1- What made you want to write a Woman Scorned?

When I finished The Game Begins, I knew I wanted to write a sequel, and I started making notes for one while redrafting and getting TGB ready for publishing, so at the start, I was writing A Woman Scorned because I liked the characters; by the end, it was just stubbornness because I was halfway through and didn’t want to start from the beginning again when it had already taken me a year to get that far.

2- Do you let your family/friends read your work?

Only when I’m finished, because if anyone sees what I’m working on while I’m working on it and passes comment, it puts me off, and I’ve abandoned quite a few of the earlier drafts of A Woman Scorned because of it.

They don’t need to say anything mean, it’s just having them question something I was proud of that makes me doubt whether it’s any good because eventually that doubt grows roots and I bury that project in my Abandoned WIPs folder on my laptop.

3- What was the most interesting thing when writing a Woman Scorned?

I learned a ton of completely useless stuff while researching things for it, but I think the part I liked the most was when I realized how much I’d actually learned since writing The Game Begins, and how much my approach to writing has changed in the last year.

4- Do you have any writing quirks?

I start writing before I plan the story, and if I’m a few chapters in and don’t have some notes scribbled down or an idea of where the story’s going, I know it’s not going to be something I’ll keep working on.

5- Was there anything that inspired you to write this novel?

It was a book series by a well-known author that inspired me to write my own series; I loved the first book, and it was a promising start, but then I started the sequel and the events of the last one (which involved the main character’s partner being killed) got a single line at the end of a chapter, and I was gutted.

6- Your favorite thing about this novel

Seeing Sam try to cope with everything that happened, and hinting at Marshall having a big secret.

7- Do you like writing/reading mysteries the most?

Absolutely. I’ve tried writing other genres before but I never had as much fun writing them as I did with mysteries- though if I ever need a change of pace, romances are my go-to novels.

8- what would be the best three words to describe ‘A Woman Scorned’?

It isn’t finished.




Thank you so much, Rebecca!

I can’t wait to read the series and get to know Sam. Luvs, if you’ve read this series comment below on what you liked most! ❤

Halloween Author Interviews with Kim Zarins

Halloween Author Interviews with Kim Zarins

Happy Halloween, Luvs!


Today I am interviewing the Luvely Kim Zarins author of a book I am extremely excited to read “Sometimes we tell the truth”





Kim Zarins has a PhD in English (ooh-la-la!) and teaches medieval literature at Sacramento State University. Her debut novel, Sometimes We Tell the Truth, retells Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales with modern teens stuck on an all-day bus ride to Washington D.C. To pass the time, the teens tell widely varied stories (some scandalously funny, some raw and sad), and often the characters tell more about themselves than they meant to. You don’t have to know anything about Chaucer to enjoy the novel! When she isn’t reading or writing or teaching, she is feeding peanuts to a very hungry scrub jay named Joe.

Are you dressing up as anything this year? If so what? 🙂

I haven’t decided yet! However, I’ve already started planning a Dead Language Party for my class! We’re a big class (105 students), and we read texts from long ago, like Beowulf and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. So I thought it would be fun to honor the spirits of dead languages and let their souls possess us on October 31st! I’m hoping we get lots of different languages represented. Some students are reading Old English, Old French, and Latin, and I’ll likely read a poem I wrote…in Middle English! I can give you the link if you want to read it. It’s a poem about donuts narrated by John Gower, an earnest and lovable medieval soul. 🙂 Donut poem: By the way, if you come across English-major nerd costume ideas, I’d love to hear them!

What is the first costume you remember wearing as a kid?

I was dressed as a baby–I wore a sleeper with the feet attached and had my hair up in that unicorn-pig-tail thing. It was a smart costume to wear, because I stayed perfectly toasty as I walked around the neighborhood with my sack of loot.

What would your character dress up as?

What a fun question! I think my character Jeff would wear one of those fake costumes–you know, just wear a t-shirt and jeans and say he’s a disenchanted youth, just to cover up that actually too much a coward to put on a real costume and own it. Pard on the other hand…ha, he would get really into a costume with glitter, face paint, mystique. This question makes me want to write a Halloween scene, just to imagine the two dozen characters in all their costumes!

Do you have a favorite Halloween writing snack/candy?

I’m embarrassed to say so, but I love the fruit-flavored Tootsie-rolls. I know they are made out of corn syrup and wax and are probably not made of actual food, but they are so good!!!!! Somehow better than Starburst!!!! And candy corn is a beloved classic.

If you could make/take/use any potion what would it be and what for?

Around sixth grade, I put stones in a circle and jumped into the circle, hoping that somehow this would get me into Narnia. I’d love to go a world like that. A world where I could talk to animals and see real magic. I’d use a potion to help me visit another world like that one. This fantasy hasn’t happened yet, but one thing I try to do is make friends with animals. I know a scrub jay named Joe who visits me every day. I feed him peanuts and just started giving him acorns. We can’t talk Narnia-style, we speak to each other, and sometimes, he sings. The friendship is magical to me.

What is your favorite horror movie?

When I was five, I saw a movie that I really shouldn’t have seen, but couldn’t look away from either. Spiders were involved. The experience set me on a path of nightmares that lasted for years…and years. I’d basically recast my family as the movie’s cast, and my house as the scene of the horror. Thanks, brain! Ever since, I’ve really been a complete wimp when I watch movies because I know how the horror can sink inside you and never let go. Even funny horror is too scary for me. I hid from my own birthday party in 6th grade because I couldn’t take Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters, I swear! And I couldn’t watch the commercials in October, because the horror movies, even in snippets, had me looking for a place to hide. Oh, and I have an un-special place in my heart for Children of the Corn, because that was the selected entertainment for a fourth-grade girl at her sleepover party (what were her parents thinking?!), and I huddled inside my sleeping bag and listened to the scariest sounds I’d ever heard. That was a long night!

Do you get scared easily?

Eep! Hey, don’t creep up on me like that!

Do you think you’d be able to survive a zombie apocalypse? If so why?

I doubt it. I don’t know how to use weapons, so I don’t think I could survive unless the zombies can be controlled by recitations of Middle English poetry. Then, I’d be the savior of the planet.

Thank you for being here for my spooky interview series ;P

Thank you for having me! I hope your Halloween is absolutely magical!

Anything you would like me to add?

Well, if any of your readers would like more magic in their lives, I have some bookmarks and stickers from art in the book (one of the stickers has a magic wand from the most magical tale in the novel!). I can’t mail them to tons of people, mostly because stamps are pricey, but I’d be happy to send some out to interested readers–email me through my website, or contact me on social media!


Thank you so much for being here! I loved your replies! And those colored tootsie-rolls are really good XDDDDD

I talk to my guinea pigs + Cat when I’m doing something and they are around. Better than saying I was talking to myself XD



I hope you all liked this interview with kim!!!

Are you dressing up as anything this year? If so what? 🙂

I dressed up like Ariel when I went to the Halloween party in Disney World. So fun (and the princesses loved my costumes)

What is the first costume you remember wearing as a kid?

I definitely have a picture of myself in an angel costume when I was a toddler that I love.

What would your character dress up as?

Auluria would be some fancy ninja assassin with sleeked back hair and dark eyeliner or an evil queen with a big dress and collar, while Dov would go for a dashing Robin Hood look or something to compliment Auluria’s costume. Jade would go for a victorian steampunk angel look, while Roan would awkwardly do the steampunk look too to make Jade happy. Fet might put on some cat ears, but she’s already got a loud wardrobe so the whole costume thing doesn’t hold much allure, while Spider would probably dress like a masculine version of Fet with her loud pink and black plaid outfit, and talk in a high pitched voice just to annoy her.

Do you have a favorite Halloween writing snack/candy?

I am a fan of Reese’s Cups and White Chocolate Kit Kats

If you could make/take/use any potion what would it be and what for?

If I could find a potion to make me able to fly, breath underwater, or turn invisible, I’d be all about that!

What is your favorite horror movie?

Sadly, I’ve never been one to intentionally sit through something that was supposed to be scary, so I’m not going to be much help here lol

What was your biggest fear as a child or now?

Answering this question is my biggest fear at the moment hahaha My brain is screaming “don’t answer it, someone will use it against you one day” *insert crying because of laughing emoji here* So this has just become my biggest (and most irrational) fear hahaha

Do you get scared easily?

No, not really. I happen to be very good at scaring other people though…intentionally and unintentionally. I’m really quiet and fast.

Do you think you’d be able to survive a zombie apocalypse? If so why?

MY heart say heck yes, my head says…ummm, really? You really think YOU’RE going to survive? lol I honestly think I’d stand a pretty good chance though. I’m very strategic, much stronger than I look, I process things really fast. So I’m going to say at the end of the day, I’ll survive until two chapters before the end of the story and then I’ll die trying to save someone else lol

If you had magic abilities for one day would you use it for good or evil?

I would use it for good. My goal would be to help people. Do I have a game plan here? I might have thought about it once or twice *wink wink*

Thank you for being here for my spooky interview series ;P


Anything  would like me to add?

Ummm, that I’m beautiful and popular and well known and liked by all

Thank you K. M. Robinson for being here!
Reese’s cups are SO good. I used to love butterfingers most but I would rather have a bucket of reeses >:)
Hope you all enjoyed this awesome interview! ❤
