Review- Pandemonium

Pandemonium (Delirium, #2)
Title: Pandemonium
Author: Lauren Oliver
Rating: 4 stars


I'm pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, 
pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do.The old life is dead.But the old Lena is dead too.I buried her.I left her beyond a fence,behind a wall of smoke and flame.

Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

So this story continue right where Delirium stops. You follow Lena on her journey to being a stronger person and finding who she really is.

The story is told by alternating between the Now and Then. Then being right after she

Delirium (Delirium, #1)
Title: Delirium
Author: Lauren Oliver
Rating: 4 stars
Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.
But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

So I noticed that there are several reviews here that list this book in the 1 or 2 Star category and I cannot understand how and I have no idea why!
This book is written extremely well. There are parts that are written like poetry, its rather beautiful sometimes! Especially the

Review- Stealing Fate

Title: Stealing Fate (Novella)
Author: Berinn Rae
Rating: 4 stars

Much is known about the Greek goddesses of fate, yet much of that knowledge is a dichotomy. For example, while the Fates are often depicted as lame hags, they took part in many battles as warriors. The more I learned about these influential goddesses, the more I craved their stories to be told. And so Unspun was born: an anthology of three novellas, each giving a Fate her love story, and each by a different author. I found it to be an intensely enjoyable effort with fellow paranormal romance authors, Rachel Firasek and Elle J Rossi.

In Stealing Fate, you'll read the story of Lachesis and Phobos, the Greek god of terror. There is no mythological evidence to support Lachesis and Phobos hooking up. But, there is also no evidence that they didn't. I wondered, what if, and so their story begins...
Received this book free from the author through a giveaway.
After reading a YA novel based on Persephone and Hades, I was excited to read another Greek Mythology inspired story, though this is definitely not YA.
The story is about

Review- The Seven Wicked- First

Title: First, The Seven Wicked
Author: C.M. Stunich
Rating: 3.5 Stars

“That's just the First," Caleb said, pausing to worry at his lower lip. “And it's only one of seven, Seven Wicked; we can't destroy any of the others until we destroy the First.”

When reincarnated goddess, Eevee Marx, sees the necklace at her local thrift store, she just has to have it. But Eevee has no idea that when she drapes the delicate, silver links over her fingers, she is continuing a legend her spirit had started centuries ago. That when she unhooks the tiny clasp and lays the black and silver pendant against her chest, she will spend the night of her seventeenth birthday holding the dying body of the boy she loves.

The Seven Wicked have been sleeping, preparing for Eevee to touch the necklace and reawaken the powers inside of her. Now, the only thing that stands between them is Caleb, the golden haired boy who will sacrifice himself to save her
As I was reading this book, I was thinking… How am I ever going to review it.
You see, this book is very unique. The story line is interesting and

Review- Fracture

Title: Fracture
Author: Megan Miranda
Rating: 4 stars

Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine
-despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she’s far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can’t control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?

Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she’s reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy’s motives aren’t quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening?
For fans of best sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death.
So, I don’t even know how to start with this book! I had been seeing reviews for it everywhere and finally decided to read it, and MAN am I glad!

The story is of Delaney, who fell through the ice in a lake up in Maine, and died for eleven minutes, was revived, and against all odds is NOT brain dead.
I mean, her brain IS damaged according to the doctors, but she is ok. She doesn’t suffer from any debilitating conditions from the brain damage. EXCEPT… she is pulled (literally) to death, to people as they are about to die.
Plot: This story was unlike anything I have read before, and that’s saying a lot! I was constantly interested, from the VERY first lines I was into the story. The pace is fast. But the “twist” was expected and predictable. I really liked it, though I wish there was a little more after the end. I felt like the end just… came too abruptly.
Characters: Delaney was SOO believable. They way the author writes her character, from a normal teenager, to a girl who dies and come back damaged, to the way it affected her friends and family-which in turn affected her. Everything was so real. I felt like I knew Delaney and cared for her.
And Decker, oh man. Sometimes I fell like my mantra for real life is played out in books. Boys are DUMB! UGH. Anyways, I loved Decker. What a great best friend, who stood by her, and fell apart when she died/didn’t die. He was there for her, caring for her.
Troy was… well complicated and confused. Which was perfect for his character. I don’t want to give too much away, but if any person lived through what he did, they would come out VERY damaged. So it makes sense that he was that way. He was a sad character.
Romance: this was the only reason I couldn’t give the book 5 stars. So much of the story revolved around Decker and Delaney’s friendship, and it was obvious to the reader that they both cared more about each other than just friendship, but it took forever for the romance to actually happen. I wanted more of that. If my best friend was a boy that had been my friend since I was five, and I grew up with him, and I cared more for him than any other person, and then I died… I think I would try a little harder to be with him like I wanted… I don’t know. Romance is important for me in a book.
Overall, this was an AWESOME read that I read in just a few hours! I couldn’t put it down, and was very glad I decided to read it!
I recommend to everyone! J

Q. Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

A. I was always reading NON required books, SO... I dont remember most of them. I remember To Kill a Mockingbird, but our teachers let us watch half of the movie too... so I mostly remember the movie.
The only book that I remember was 1984- which I know is going to be a lot of peoples picks. But that book REALLY scared the crap out of me and made me think.
I will never forget that book.

Review- Everneath

Title: Everneath
Author: Brodi Ashton

Rating: 4.5 Stars

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she’s returned—to her old life, her family, her friends—before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can’t find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki’s time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she’s forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole’s...

Wow! This book has everything in it! Romance, suspence, action and adventure and MYTHOLOGY!

The story is told by Nikki, who you learn right away

Beta Readers and Teasers for My Book

Ok, so as you all (may or may not) know, I have been writing my first novel for a while now.

When I first started this blog, I naively believed that once I finished the story, (see description here) the book was done.

Unfortunately that isnt true.

After you finish the story, you have to revise and edit the story a million and two times before its ACTUALLY done.

So, I have revised it again and have some teasers for you!

If you would like to be a beta reader and give me some advise on my book, please contact me via email at: theresamcrocker[at] gmail (dot) com. (crocker is my maiden name)

Review- Partials

Partials (Partials, #1)

Title: Partials
Author: Dan Wells
Rating: 4 Stars

Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the world’s population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. The threat of the partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to the disease in over a decade. Humanity’s time is running out.

When sixteen-year-old Kira learns of her best friend’s pregnancy, she’s determined to find a solution. Then one rash decision forces Kira to flee her community with the unlikeliest of allies. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that the survival of both humans and partials rests in her attempts to answer questions of the war’s origin that she never knew to ask.

Combining the fast-paced action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Battlestar GalacticaPartials is a pulse-pounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question—one where our sense of humanity is both our greatest liability, and our only hope for survival

I started reading this book mid-day yesterday, and didn’t stop until 12:30 am, when I finished it! It was SUCH a great book!

Review- The Burning Star

Title: The Burning Star
Author: Jessie Lane

Rating: 2.5 Stars

Can she reach her destiny before tragedy strikes?

The doctors have told Kay that she will die before she reaches her eighteenth birthday. Her mother’s determination to save her life leads them to a move outside of Asheville, NC to a new set of cancer specialists in the hopes to help her. But it’s not what Kay and her Mom find in the doctor’s offices in Asheville that lead them on the journey to save her before time runs out. It’s what Kay finds in the woods outside of Asheville, and an inhumanly gorgeous guy named Ryan, instead.

Myths and fairy tales come to life before Kay’s eyes, bringing her closer to the ultimate cure if she can stay alive long enough to get there. And if the cancer doesn’t kill her before she finds the cure the secrets her mother has hidden from her may be the beginning of the end

Things I liked: The COVER is AMAZING!! LOVE It!

Review: Angelfire

Title: AngelFire
Author: Courtney Allison Moulton
Rating: 4 stars (almost did 3 because I got annoyed at the end, but could EASILY have been 5… so I compromised )
First there are nightmares. Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her, killing her.
Then come the memories. When Ellie meets Will, she feels on the verge of remembering something just beyond her grasp. His attention is intense and romantic, and Ellie feels like her soul has known him for centuries. On her seventeenth birthday, on a dark street at midnight, Will awakens Ellie's power, and she knows that she can fight the creatures that stalk her in the grim darkness. Only Will holds the key to Ellie’s memories, whole lifetimes of them, and when she looks at him, she can no longer pretend it was just a dream.
Now she must hunt.Ellie has power that no one can match, and her role is to hunt and kill the reapers that prey on human souls. But in order to survive the dangerous and ancient battle of the angels and the Fallen, she must also hunt for the secrets of her past lives and truths that may be too frightening to remember.
Oh man! This was an awesome book! Definitely my kind of book.

How to write a better Climax

In every story there are certain elements:  Plot, Character, Conflict, Theme, Setting.  

You have to build up the conflict to make the climax feel real.  The Climax is the part of the plot, where the conflict is resolved.

It is “The point of greatest intensity or force in an ascending series or progression; a culmination.”-as described by the free online dictionary.
Now, we all know what a climax is, but how do you write it? How can you make it better? You don’t want it to be anticlimactic. Ive written before on the beginning of the novel, but now lets focus on the end.

Things you need in order to have a great climax:
1.       First things first- you have to have good characters. Before you can have tension or conflict, you have to have someone that it involves. If the reader has no emotional investment in the characters, then the tension or conflict is nonexistent or not important.
So make sure to have fully developed characters. The protagonist needs to have the right motivation, and this motivation needs to be

Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns

The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)

Title: The Girl of Fire and Thorns

Author: Rae Carson

Rating: 4 stars

Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.
Elisa is the chosen one.
But she is also the younger of two princesses. The one who has never done anything remarkable, and can’t see how she ever will.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs her to be the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.
And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies, seething with dark magic, are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior, and he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.
Most of the chosen do.

Review: There is So much to this book! It was so different than anything I have ever read. The story follows Elisa on her journey of growing up- into a strong and respectable queen. Elisa is the younger princess; she is spoiled and fat and has never worked in her life. At the beginning of this book, she is just turning 16 years old and is being forced to marry a king in an adjoining country.

She takes this responsibility without whining, even though she has never met (or even seen this man before) because she knows she must do it for her country. But that’s not even the biggest thing in Elisa’s life; she is actually

Update on My BOOKS

So… As I’ve mentioned before, I am writing a trilogy, the first book is written, but I’m in the process of revising/editing. I had some people read it, give feedback and advice, and I’m trying to make it the best it can be.
WELL- I have decided that it needs some SERIOUS work. I’m adding in a whole new element, basically giving the antagonist a reason to want to be bad, not just to be a bad guy JUST because he is. AND I am seriously upping the stakes. He isn’t just going to try and kill the protagonist; he is going to do SO much MORE! Because of this, it is taking a lot longer than I had originally thought to edit it. I’m adding a lot more to the story, not just tightening up the writing.
As I’m writing my book, and going through each chapter, one at a time, I’m falling in love with the story all over again! Its pretty amazing! I think, “I would LOVE this book, even if it wasn’t mine!”
And as I continue to read more books, I come more to the realization every day that the story is DEFINITELY good enough to be a real book!

This isn’t just a dream in my head, this is NOT unattainable. I can do this! J
It’s pretty exhilarating when you realize it!

Review- Possess

Title: Possess

Author Gretchen McNeil

Rating: 5 stars

Fifteen-year-old Bridget Liu just wants to be left alone: by her over-protective mom, by Matt Quinn, the cute son of a local police sergeant and by the eerie voices she can suddenly and inexplicably hear. Unfortunately for Bridget, the voices are demons—and Bridget possesses the rare ability to banish them back to whatever hell they came from. Literally.

Terrified to tell her friends or family about this new power, Bridget confides in San Francisco’s senior exorcist, Monsignor Renault. The monsignor enlists her help in increasingly dangerous cases of demonic possession, but just as she is starting to come to terms with her freakish new role, Bridget receives a startling message from one of the demons. And when one of her oldest friends is killed, Bridget realizes she’s in deeper than she ever thought possible. Now she must unlock the secret to the demons’ plan before someone else close to her winds up dead—or worse, the human vessel for a demon king.
WOW! Where to even start with this book! I only bought this book because I have been seeing it all over the blogosphere and I thought the cover was AMAZING.

That being said, going into this, I had no idea what it was even about.

A: I usually stick to the same genre- Paranormal Romance. Adult or YA- I dont even care. But a genre I dont normally read...Well I read this book call On The Island. It was a story about a woman and teenage boy being stranded on an island after a plane crash, and they developed a romance. It was pretty contraversial because the woman was 30 and teh boy 16 when it happened. The romance didnt develop until he was 18, but still... it was wierd. Despite that, it was a good book that REALLY made you think.

Review- Bringer

Title: The Bringer
Author:  Samantha Towle
Rating: 4 Stars

Death is sad, love is agony. Max was her next job. She got his name just before he died and it was for her to lead his soul to heaven. She was a Bringer. Then Max started pleading (as they often do), but not for himself, for his son, James. Would she look after him, would she comfort him as he grieved for the loss of his father? James was a sensitive young man. He would take his father's death very hard. Well, Bringers don't do that sort of thing; their exclusive role is to usher souls to heaven. They are not allowed to get involved in earthly affairs. However, when she saw James, she felt something she had never felt before – an emotion, a shock. She was a Bringer. Bringers do not have emotions. Yet she couldn't help herself. She found herself being drawn inexorably towards James and his life, against every instinct she had ever had, against every law of the universe. And she fell in love.
For a Bringer, that is a terrifying fall.
This was a very interesting story, something different. You meet Lucyna- she is a bringer, a being that brings souls to heaven (very interesting concept BTW) Bringers don’t feel anything-ever, and she when she starts having feelings, things change. She promises one of her “brings” that she will look after his son, and when she does, she falls in love with him. This is very strange because she shouldn’t be able to feel anything ever.

Write/Publish in Different Genres or Age Groups?

I have been thinking a lot recently about how difficult it may be to publish (sell) books in different age groups, by the same author.
For example, I have already started writing an adult paranormal romance trilogy. I have finished the first book (im just editing it again) and started the second book. Then I also have a 5 book YA series I want to write, though I have only barely started. And I have a childrens books series that I have started.
I understand the difficulties have writing books in different genres, because then you have to build an audience in each genre, but doing  YA and adult books, if they are both paranormal romance, shouldn’t be that big of a deal.

I asked a literary agent, (Natalie from Adventures in Agentland) and this is her take:

Interview with a Blogger- Ariel Avalon

This will be my first (hopefully a LOT more to come) interview with a fellow blogger! Keepin Up with the Joneses would like to welcome Ariel Avalon from her self titled blog!

1. Tell me a little about yourself.

 I am a Navy housewife in my late 20s from the heart of Texas, currently living in Virginia. I spend my days cooking, cleaning, reading, writing, and playing with my pets.

2. What made you decide to start blogging?

 I've recently begun writing my first novel and knew that having a blog would be something I would need in the event I ever get brave enough to try to have it published upon it's completion. I am a private person, and as such very uncomfortable with putting myself out there. I decided that blogging would help open me up so that it won't be a huge shock to me if I do end up getting published and needing to blog for my fans.

Review- Midnight Fire

Title: Midnight Fire –Rise of the Dark Angel

Author: Melody Anne

Rating: 4 Stars


Phoenix Light is a typical kid living in a nice home. She has two parents who are okay and an older brother she adores. Her world collapses around her when her dad rushes in the house and switches on the television to see enemy soldiers are taking over their world as they know it. Luckily, her father knew an attack was imminent and he built a vast shelter in the mountains for their family and thousands of others.

What the people on earth don’t know is the war is much more than a human take-over. The forces of good and evil are battling and the humans are their pawns. Jayden, A Dark Angel, is a servant of Vyco and sent in to lead the survivors to their death, but the first person he meets is Phoenix and he finds he can’t destroy her.

Can you imagine what the world would be like if there was war everywhere? If you had to hide in a cave/cavern just to stay safe? If there were prison camps being run by the rebel armies, where the prisoners were tortured, raped and starved? Can you imagine what life would be like?

Well, that’s the world that 17 year old Phoenix lives in. Through her
