Save Me Blog Tour by Jenny Elliot

Hey Everyone! 

Thank you for stopping  by my stop in the SAVE ME Blog Tour by Jenny Elliot!

Title: Save Me
Author: Jenny Elliot
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Published: 01.06.15
Pages: 309
Acquired: Arc from the publisher
My Rating: 3.5 out of 5


Debut-novelist Jenny Elliott’s thrilling romance, chosen by readers, writers, and publishers for the first list in the new Swoon Reads imprint, pours on the tension and danger in an addictive combination that will keep you turning pages!

Something strange is going on in the tiny coastal town of Liberty, Oregon. Cara has never seen a whale swim close enough for her to touch it—let alone knock her into the freezing water. Fortunately, cute newcomer David is there to save her, and the rescue leads to a bond deeper than Cara ever imagined.

But then she learns something about David that changes everything, and Cara is devastated. She turns to her best friend for support, but Rachel has changed. She’s suddenly into witchcraft, and is becoming dangerously obsessed with her new boyfriend….

Cara has lost her best friend, discovered that her soul mate is off limits, and has attracted the attention of a stalker. But she’s not completely alone. Her mysterious, gorgeous new friend Garren is there to support her. But is Garren possibly too perfect?

My Review:

There are certain books that you just have to be in the mood to read. SAVE ME by Jenny Elliot was one of those books for me. I attempted to pick them it up a few weeks back and could just not get into it. But I picked it up again a few days ago, determined to give it one more try and I am glad that I did! 

SAVE ME had by far one of the best first chapters I have ever read. There must have been something wrong with me the first time I picked this up, because I don't know how I could have read through that chapter and not have been hooked. 

On top of an amazing first chapter, other great things about this book was the mixture of all the different elements of the story.  Sometimes mixing different genres together can turn into a chaotic mess, but I thought SAVE ME was executed very well. I specifically liked how certain aspects of the story line kept you guessing until the very end. 

My only real issue with this book was the insta-love. Our main character Cara falls in love within the first few pages. Yes, it is not the perfect relationship and there are obstacles in the way, but that relationship took off a little too quickly for my taste.  But as this being a SWOON READS book, I guess that was to be expected. 

All in all this was a great debut for Jenny Elliot and I will definitely be picking up more of her work in the future!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! - Where I've been and a GIVEAWAY! =D

Hello to all my book lovers and friends out there
It feels so good to be back! 
I've missed every single one of you!

First of all Happy 2015! 

In case you were wondering where I've been,
I have been away due to happy news.

Well long story short, my sister got engaged the second
week of October and decided to have a NYE wedding. 
Btw I mean a NYE 2014 wedding. That was less than
9 weeks to plan not only a wedding, but a bridal shower
and bachlorette party too. 

Somehow we pulled it off and it was the most amazing
experience of my life to date. It is so amazing to see my 
sister so happy and I am absolutely thrilled for her. 

I have to say a big thank you to my friend and sister Patricia over at The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club. She has been keeping The Fantastic Flying Book Club alive. She has been on her own in the running of The FFBC since October and I am beyond thankful to her. 

But enough of the mussy stuff back to why we are all here BOOKS!

Unfortunately for me 2014 was not a GREAT year in reading, but an 
amazing one for my personal life. I passed my Nursing boards,
started a job that I still love, and my sister got married. So I completely
failed my Goodreads yearly challenge. 

Even though I do have another big even coming up (I'm apartment
hunting), I am determined to make 2015 a better year in reading.
In order to do that I have made myself some 2015 goals.

1- Write reviews right after reading the book! Currently I have about 
20 (+) books in my currently reading pile on Goodreads. But majority of those
are books I have read and have yet to right the review! So I am hoping if I make myself
right reviews before moving on to another book this will allow me to stay up to date.

2- Finish series that I already own that I have not completed: This year I really want to make a dent in my TBR pile. I have TONS of books that I own that I have not read. And many of them are completed series! So 2015 will be dedicated to finishing those up. 

3- Read more ARCs before release date: I really need to get my percentages on Netgalley and Edelweiss up! 

4 - Plan more giveaways!  Okay this one is more for you guys then for me, but 
I definetly want to do more giveaways on my blog. I have so many blessings in my life and I really want to pay it forward!

And what better way to start then NOW!

So far in 2015 I have attended 2 book signings and they both happen to be 
signings for PIERCE BROWN and the sequel to Red Rising - Golden Son.

My friend Lisa over at The Consummate Reader  went down to The Book Soup for Pierce's 
Release party. The place was awesome and it was packed. I don't think the book store was
anticipating that many people to come, so they didn't have any copies of Red Rising left and I needed to pick up a few.

So Lisa and I decided to head down to the new Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego to see Pierce again yesterday and I called head to make sure they put enough copies of hold for me!

So of course I HAD to pick one up for you guys!

So friends here is my first giveaway of the year!
