The Maze Runner trailer

Doesn't Summer 2015 just seem too far away.I know there are a lot of great movies coming out before then but I want to see this one.

In other notes. Lay's has chosen their new flavors for people to vote on (here). Saw them in the store and none of them jumped out and made me want to buy them. A couple sound really bad. Will probably try a couple of them but cappuccino flavored chips, just not happening for me.

Book Review ~ What's a Witch to Do

What's a Witch to Do (A midnight Magic Mystery #1)

by Jennifer Harlow
published by Midnight Ink
genre: Adult, Romance, Mystery (Cozy), Supernatural

Summary (Goodreads): High Priestess might sound like an ’80s hair band, but its Mona McGregor’s life. She runs the Midnight Magic shop in Goodnight, Virginia, and leads a large coven. She’s also raising two nieces and hasn’t been with a man for fifteen years…until a handsome doctor takes an interest in her. But Mona’s life really heats up when Adam Blue, a sexy werewolf, arrives at her door. Adam informs her that someone wants her dead and he is there to protect her. Hell’s bells! When a demon begins stalking her, Mona has to suspect her coven members, and even her family.

With two handsome men and a determined demon after her, Mona teams up with Adam to find out who really wants her dead . . . and who really wants her.

My Thoughts: While this looks and reads more like a cozy mystery, I would definitely label it more under romance. The mystery was there but the "will she ever find love" question was the bigger story line. Since there were plenty of supes in this story it did not bother me that it was a romance.
I liked Mona for the most part. I almost quit the book at one point because the author kept using the term moron but spelling it mo-ron. I was glad when she stopped. Mona flipped a lot between being this strong, high-priestess type character and a whiny why me type. This doesn't sound good but it fit with the character and the situation/town she lived in.
The mystery part of the story was obvious and used more as a reason to throw Mona and Adam together. Even when they "caught" the person responsible you knew it wasn't done.
Overall, I was more interested in the setting and overall supernatural groups than Mona/Adam's HEA. The story of Mona's sister and her 2 nieces is probably what I want to know the most about. Also, the FREAKs. Since there is a series featuring them (F.R.E.A.K.S. squad investigations) I may check it out before reading the second in this series.

Rating: 3.5

Mini Reviews ~ Blood Lite

Blood Lite (Blood Lite #1)

edited by Kevin J Anderson
genre: Anthologies, Adult, Fantasy, PNR, UF

Summary (Goodreads): The Horror Writers Association Presents Blood Lite...a collection of entertaining tales that puts the fun back into dark fiction, with ironic twists and tongue-in-cheek wit to temper the jagged edge.

My Thoughts: I only read the stories by the authors on the front of the book. I tried reading some of the others but wasn't in the right mood, will try and go back when I have more reading time.
Jim Butcher (Dresden 10.1): Harry's Day Off: Cute story about Harry trying to keep plans for a day off and everything going wrong. From his assistant blowing up his lab to the local were's getting fleas.
Sherrilyn Kenyon (Dark Hunter 15.5): Where Angels Fear to Tread: This was the one that had me turning the page and going wait I want more.
Kelley Armstrong (Otherworld 8.2): The Ungrateful Dead: This was another I enjoyed even though I'm not this far into the series yet (really need to finish).
Overall, I bought this for these three stories and they were worth the price of the book. Since I own the book, if I'm ever looking for new authors I can check out their works in this book.

Rating: 3.5(on stories read)

How did I miss this? Not just the movie news but the book it is based on. Daniel Radcliffe is staring in this adaptation set to come out this Halloween. The trailer looks great and I actually want to see this (been awhile since I've wanted to see a horror movie). More importantly I want to read the book.

Horns Trailer

Horns by Joe Hill (Goodreads)
Summary: Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a thunderous hangover, a raging headache . . . and a pair of horns growing from his temples.
At first Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year in a lonely, private purgatory, following the death of his beloved, Merrin Williams, who was raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances. A mental breakdown would have been the most natural thing in the world. But there was nothing natural about the horns, which were all too real.

Once the righteous Ig had enjoyed the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned musician and younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, he had security, wealth, and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more—he had Merrin and a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic.

But Merrin's death damned all that. The only suspect in the crime, Ig was never charged or tried. And he was never cleared. In the court of public opinion in Gideon, New Hampshire, Ig is and always will be guilty because his rich and connected parents pulled strings to make the investigation go away. Nothing Ig can do, nothing he can say, matters. Everyone, it seems, including God, has abandoned him. Everyone, that is, but the devil inside. . . .

Now Ig is possessed of a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look—a macabre talent he intends to use to find the monster who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge. . . . It's time the devil had his due. . .

Review ~ The Complete Persepolis

The Complete Persepolis

by Marjane Satrapi
published by Pantheon
genre: Adult, Graphic Novel, Memoir

Summary (Goodreads): Persepolis is the story of Satrapi's unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued by political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming--both sweet and terrible; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland. It is the chronicle of a girlhood and adolescence at once outrageous and familiar, a young life entwined with the history of her country yet filled with the universal trials and joys of growing up.

Edgy, searingly observant, and candid, often heartbreaking but threaded throughout with raw humor and hard-earned wisdom--Persepolis is a stunning work from one of the most highly regarded, singularly talented graphic artists at work today.

My Thoughts: During Armchair BEA this was on just about everyone's list for favorite/best graphic novels. It was definitely worth the read. Even though memoirs are not something I usually read, having one in this form was another selling point.
It's harder to review this type of book because it is someone's life story not fictional characters. Following the author's life through some very high highs to some very low lows was intriguing and kept my attention until the very end. I would recommend this to everyone. Even if you don't read memoirs/biography it is easy to get lost in this story.

Book Review ~ Raven Calls

Raven Calls (Walker Papers #7)

by C.E. Murphy
published by Luna
genre: Adult, Urban Fantasy, Mythology

Summary (Goodreads): Something wicked this way comes…

Suddenly, being bitten by a werewolf is the least of Joanne Walker’s problems.

Her personal life in turmoil, her job as a cop over, she’s been called to Ireland by the magic within her. And though Joanne’s skills have grown by leaps and bounds, Ireland’s magic is old and very powerful…

In fact, this is a case of unfinished business. Because the woman Joanne has come to Ireland to rescue is the woman who sacrificed everything for Joanne—the woman who died a year ago. Now, through a slip in time, she’s in thrall to a dark power and Joanne must battle darkness, time and the gods themselves to save her.

My Thoughts: I love books set in Ireland and this was no exception. This series has always leaned more towards the native american mythology part of Joanne's heritage. In this book we not only get that part but a huge influx of Celtic mythology mixed in.
There was a lot going on throughout this story. Saving Joanne's mom from becoming enthralled to the Master, a new magic user in Ireland, and lots of Gods or close to them. Gary is still one of my favorite side characters in any series and he plays a big part in this book.
Overall, lots of kick ass women, not just Joanne in this story. Not all were on the same side but still warriors. The werewolf bite became too much of a thing at times and I was glad when that was finished.  From the way the book ended Joanne won't be getting back to her romance anytime soon.

DCE has released the DC Entertainment Essential Graphic Novels and Chronology 2014. You can get a free e-copy either from their website (here) or a kindle copy (here). There's also a 2013 one but I have not looked at that one yet.

Mini Reviews ~ Winter Moon

Winter Moon

by Mercedes Lackey, Tanith Lee, C.E. Murphy
published by Luna
genre: Adult, Anthology, Fantasy, 

Summary (Goodreads): 
Mercedes Lackey:
In an isolated land where the lure of the "Moontide" leads to shipwrecks, a woman is torn between obeying her father or her king. When she chooses to follow a Fool, she discovers magic she'd never expected . . . at a price that might be too high . . .

Tanith Lee:
Struggling under the curse of a dead comrade, Clirando, a warrior priestess unready to face the powers trapped within her, must face "The Heart of the Moon" to reveal what has been hidden . . .

C.E. Murphy:
In "Banshee Cries," ritual murders under a full moon lead Jo Walker to confront a Harbinger of Death. Maybe this "gift" she has is one she shouldn't ignore -- because the next life she has to save might be her own

My Thoughts: Moontide (M. Lackey) I've read a couple of Lackey's Five Hundred Kingdoms and though this takes place in the same world it does not have any of the fairy tale elements. The characters were all solid even with the shorter length. While I liked the story I was just as intrigued with the Grey Ladies and the magics created in this story.
The Heart of the Moon (T. Lee) First time reading this author and must say I cannot wait to read more. Clirando was a great female lead and proved she was kick ass right from the start.
Banshee Cries (C.E. Murphy) I love this series but somehow missed this short during the reading. I just finished Raven Calls which revolves around Joanne and her mother. There were references to this short so I had to find it to read.
After being so far into the series it was weird to go back to the beginning where Joanne is not a kick ass shaman and still struggling to believe in the magic that is a part of her.

Overall, I enjoyed all three of these stories. The only author I wasn't as familiar with was Tanith Lee and really enjoyed her writing. I'm looking forward to reading more from all of these authors.

So someone on Goodreads posted the cover for Rachel Vincent's new series before she could do the cover reveal. My initial reaction was "pretty". I like the purple on the cover flaps and the stars on the back. I like the burning butterfly just wish they had carried the stars over to the front as well. The blurb sounds promising, another one to add to the TBR.  (author website)

CBS announced (here) that they've added Jennifer Love Hewitt to the cast of Criminal Minds. I'm still not sure how I feel about this. The last new addition did not really work out. I have my definite faves (Reed and Penelope) but am willing to give her a chance. 

Some more TV news. I love Sherlock. I'm still getting used to the format of 90 mins and only 3 episodes but still love it. At least there isn't a 3 yr wait this time.
The creators of Sherlock have confirmed the hit BBC One drama will be back for a special in 2015, followed by a fourth series of three episodes. (website)
