Colleen Houck’s Recreated Blog Tour

Hello All,

Welcome to the LAST STOP on the Recreated Blog Tour!!! It has been an honor to be a part of this tour and I can’t believe that I get to be the one to bring this tour to its close…


“From Colleen Houck, New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger’s Curse, comes Recreated, the second book in the epic Egyptian-inspired Reawakened series, in which a seventeen-year-old must literally go to hell to save the love of her life.

Lily Young thought traveling across the globe with a reawakened sun prince was a grand adventure. Now she’s about to embark on the journey of a lifetime.

When Amon and Lily part tragically, he transports himself to the Netherworld—what mortals call hell. Tormented by the loss of his one true love, he’d rather suffer in agony during Lily’s mortal years than fulfill his duty to protect humanity.

Heartbroken, Lily seeks refuge on her grandmother’s farm. Yet she can feel Amon’s pain, and she has been having dreams—dreams of Amon continually suffering.

For before he departed, Amon gave Lily something very special, an item that connects them even though they are worlds apart. Now Lily must use this object to free him, and to free their realms from darkness and utter chaos. She will do whatever it takes.”

As part of the last stop of the blog tour I get to share with you Colleen Houck’s “Five Things That Make a Good Villain”:

Crazy News on the TV Front

Shortly on the heels of the newest show Shadowhunters comes the announcement that none other than Selena Gomez and her mother are starring and producing 13 Reasons Why as a TV show this year.  According to the IMDB page:

After reading the book the series is based, Selena Gomez, along with her mother Mandy Teefey and producer Kristel Laiblin, brought the book to producing company Anonymous Content for a screen adaptation. Gomez was previously attached to star in the project back in 2012 when it was still set up as a film at Universal.

An actual date has yet to be announced, but soon as we know we’ll share.

Any particular thoughts on the adaption?

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

Holly Black is one of those authors who I low key love. I cannot tell you why I don’t have a shelf dedicated to her on any of my shelves, but I am coming to the realization that I should.  If you don’t already know her, some of her books that I really loved are Tithe and White Cat. But this post is going to be all about a completely different book:
