Synopsis from Goodreads:

Ellie Jordan’s job is to catch and remove unwanted ghosts. Part detective, part paranormal exterminator, Ellie operates out of Savannah, Georgia, one of the oldest and most haunted cities in North America.

When a family contacts her to deal with a disturbing presence in the old mansion they’ve recently purchased, Ellie first believes it to be a typical, by-the-book specter, a residual haunting by a restless spirit. Instead, she finds herself confronting an evil older and more powerful than she’d ever expected, rooted in the house’s long and sordid history of luxury, sin, and murder. The dangerous entity seems particularly interested in her clients’ ten-year-old daughter.

Soon her own life is in danger, and Ellie must find a way to exorcise the darkness of the house before it can kill her, her clients, or their frightened young child.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Carter was only twelve when he witnessed the disaster that killed more than a hundred people at Starland Amusement Park. Five years later, Carter’s hometown is no longer a busy Florida panhandle resort, but a slowly dying town full of empty motels and attractions rusting behind chains and padlocks.

Now something evil stirs in the ruins of the old amusement park…something with an alluring siren song drawing visitors into the dark mysteries of the forbidden world behind the gate. Something with an appetite for restless, yearning souls.

Carter reluctantly returns to the old park in the company of a new girl in town, who is obsessed with urban decay and pop-culture ruins, and discovers the evil at work. To stop it, and protect the children of the town, Carter will have to face his oldest and deepest fears.

Updates: October 2014

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve haven’t been around adding extra blog posts or even on Twitter. I still had some reviews scheduled in advance but that was about it. The main reason was that I recently got married! It was the best day of my life, I had so much fun and the weather was beautiful. It was the 12th in case anyone asks. Preparing for that took up so much of my time that I took a break from blogging around September. It was kind of nice not having to stress about getting a review out or a book done. The second is work but I’m going to arrange my schedule so I can still contribute, even if its only a little.

After the wedding I debated if getting back into blogging was a good idea, I felt distant from it all and wasn’t sure I wanted to do it anymore. Even switching to one review a week still stressed me a bit because I was trying to rush myself. I tried reading a few books but they just couldn’t keep my attention.

Then this past weekend there was a whole bunch of drama from a certain author, and it honestly scared me to even continue reading after I read what she did to a blogger, which was horrible and disgusting, but I won’t go into that. But from that I saw bloggers unite together, knowing they wouldn’t stand for this happening to one of their own. Even a bunch of authors stood up and said no, that wasn’t okay. That just lifted my spirits, knowing my fellow bloggers would be there for me no matter what. So I started getting excited about blogging and actually reading again, and here I am writing this!

I’m going to take it slow at first and keep a positive view on things so I don’t get discouraged again. I do still have some reviews scheduled for a few weeks, but I will also have a special post or two with multiple reviews coming just so I can catch up. And a few goodies the week of Halloween.

If you’ve read this whole thing, thank you so much for taking the time! And if you’re skipping to this part, I’m getting back into blogging and thanking the blogging community for lifting my spirits! <3

Mary Howard has always lived in the shadow of her powerful family. But when she’s married off to Henry Fitzroy, King Henry VIII’s illegitimate son, she rockets into the Tudor court’s inner circle. Mary and “Fitz” join a tight clique of rebels who test the boundaries of court’s strict rules with their games, dares, and flirtations. The more Mary gets to know Fitz, the harder she falls for him, but is forbidden from seeing him alone. The rules of court were made to be pushed…but pushing them too far means certain death. Is true love worth dying for?
