Y is for Years & an Ocean by Jo Noelle + a GIVEAWAY!



~ About the Book

Going to a séance was supposed to be a harmless diversion in Victorian England, but for Delia Spencer, it was life altering. Since that day, she has been plagued by fainting spells, while her consciousness visits Elle Thomas more than a century in the future. In modern-day New York, Elle has kept secret the dream-like memories of Delia’s life. As the visits have become more frequent, Elle is confused about what is her life and what is not. Back in England, Delia’s father is determined to marry her off to any marginally suitable man before her illness becomes known to society. But will Delia consent, now that she’s had a taste of Elle’s independence?

Part contemporary, part Victorian; part romance, part tragedy; part young adult, part new adult. This time travel novel is set in London, England and New York City. It is a clean romance packed with suspense and humor and just enough kissing. Science fiction meets sweet romance in Years & and Ocean.

U is for United by Jaci Wheeler + A GIVEAWAY!


~ About the Book

When the United States of America crumbles under civilian protests and riots, a new United America rises from the ashes… 

After a reformation, United America runs like a well-oiled machine. Solar power trumps fossil fuels, strict laws keep crime at an all-time low, and at sixteen, residents are assigned their role in society—and fulfill it without complaints. But unbeknownst to the citizens, they are also under constant monitoring, and reigning President Vaughn has eyes in every sector of the gleaming country. 

When Rosaline Thatcher turns sixteen, it is time to receive her position in society… 

When President Vaughn calls Rosaline to the stage, she dutifully follows orders. Though she dare not disobey, it’s unclear why she is being singled out. As she passes her best friend, Wesley, she’s reminded of what’s at stake. With her new role, she could be torn from her friends and family forever. 

Rosaline goes from ordinary citizen to leader of the free world… 

Shocked and overwhelmed, Rosaline can’t understand why she was chosen for the most vital position of all. But with great power comes great responsibility, and with the help of those closest to her, the fate of their thriving country rests in her hands. 

When she discovers a secret location only known as the O.C., the United America Rosaline thought she knew may turn out to be history’s greatest fraud… 

In a society where citizens obey without question, what will happen when one girl dares to defy, and what will that mean for United America?

Q is for (A) Question of Faith by Nicole Zoltack + A GIVEAWAY!


~ About the Book

It's not everyday you learn you're the incarnation of magic. 

After learning her birth mother sought the help of witches to conceive her, fifteen-year-old Crystal's previously unwavering faith is shaken. God hasn’t been answering her prayers like she thought--she was. 

Crystal’s limitless magical potential is put to the test when her boyfriend’s mother is in a life-threatening accident. Surely God won’t mind her using magic to help people, but the miraculous outcome leaves Crystal wondering what she is capable of and worrying that her magic will damn her to Hell or, worse, prove she has no soul to condemn. 

After her aunt is threatened, Crystal sets out to master her power, but flying and conjuring fireballs attracts dangerous attention. A witch hunter kidnaps her boyfriend, and shamans and witches hunt Crystal, desperate to use her to end a centuries-old war between the supernatural races. Her magic is an uncontrollable time bomb. If Crystal can't figure out what she's capable of, she won't just fail to protect those she loves and end the war--she might start the apocalypse.

I is for ION-417 : Raiju by James Darcey


~ About the Book

Ion was born and raised in a secluded world, with only a sadistic doctor and his lizard lackeys for company. Her education came from carefully selected material provided by her tormentor, and the best entertainment was the exercise machine in her small room. It was the only world she knew. 
The one thing that made her different than hundreds of others in similar situations, was that Ion held a power within her that was growing stronger week by week. He knew she had the power despite her efforts to hide it from him. He had created her just for that power. He was training her, but for what she didn’t know. The only thing she had going for her was that he didn’t know how strong she was getting. 
Then by sheer chance, she discovered the truth of her existence. More than just the sinister plans he had for her future as his mind-wiped assassin. She had family. A family he had stolen from her. 
With this discovery, she made plans of her own. Plans that had her traveling across half the galaxy in search of her mother’s people. It’s a long and dangerous journey for an inexperienced girl. How well can she trust her happenstance companions? What welcome will she find at her journey’s end?
