Beyond the Horizon ~ Blog Tour

I am so excited to be part of the blog tour for the release of Beyond the Horizon!! I had the privilege of beta-reading it recently and it's not a book you'll want to miss. =)

About the Book:

Eliana longs to see the world beyond the mountains that tower above Salzburg, Austria, but knows that dream will never see such adventure- and neither will she.
Surrounded by a world of cruelty, she lives for the weekly visits of Aron, a boy she met on one of her rambles through the countryside.

But as the years pass and she begins to grow older, a new and unwelcome world is opened up to her.

On a fateful night at a party she vowed she’d never attend, she comes face to face with a shocking truth.
As the world around her teeters on the brink of war, Eliana struggles to figure out just where her loyalty lies; a decision that will drastically change the course of her life. Will she ever be free to see what lies beyond the horizon?

About the Author:

Jesseca is an 18-year old daughter, sister, and a child of God. Her days are spent reading, cooking, spending time with siblings, or playing piano.  And writing, of course! At an early age words fascinated her, and her love for the printed page has only grown. She lives with her parents and seven siblings in the sunny state of Kansas, and she’s convinced there’s no place like home.

Feel free to visit Jesseca at her blog or on Goodreads. Also, check out her Pinterest page to see some of her inspiration for her writing!

Book Review ~ Twinepathy, C. B. Cook

About the book:

Albany York has a secret.

Albany and her twin sister, Brooklyn, have spent years successfully hiding their telepathic connection. But when a girl falls unconscious at their doorstep, the girls learn that they might not be the only people in the world with extraordinary powers and that a memory thief is on the loose. As the twins try to help the girl find her memories, they discover that the superhero world might be bigger—and more dangerous—than they ever imagined.


Title: Twinepathy
Author: C. B. Cook
Series: IDIA
Stars: 5 out of 5

This was so not what I was expecting! The plot, the characters, the adventure! It was SO awesome. Outstandingly well written. This was the first time that I have read C.B. Cook’s writing and I was extremely surprised. It was very obvious that there was a lot of thought and outlining put into the writing of Twinepathy.

Each character was very different from all the other ones and they all had a part in the story. It was so much fun to see all the secrets unfold. I thought Albany was going to be a lot like me, but it ended up being Brooklyn who reminded me of myself. The twins are so alike, but then they are totally different. That just added to the adventure. I especially loved all the unique names. Every single one of them fit that character and that just helped bring the story to life, even though the story is so far-fetched.

If you love action, suspense, and adventure—the superhero kind—then you would probably enjoy Twinepathy.

Book Review ~ The Dressmaker's Secret, Kellyn Roth

About the book:

London, England, 1870

It comes to the attention of curious eight-year-old Alice Chattoway that her father is seemingly nonexistent. After realizing that his absence is making her mother unhappy, Alice becomes determined to find him and pull her family together. But Miss Chattoway’s answers to her daughter’s questions are vague at best and Alice begins to wonder if she will ever discover her mother’s secret.


Title: The Dressmaker's Secret
Author: Kellyn Roth
Series: The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy
Stars: 4 out of 5

Okay, this book was so interesting. Not interesting as in weird, but interesting as in it keeps your attention. I loved it! The storyline and the way it was written reminded me of Louisa May Alcott's books. Very vintage!

The only reason I took off one star was because of the amateur writing and the rush ending. The story itself was very well thought out, but I feel like the author probably could have written it better if she had put a little bit more into the actual writing itself. It's not drastically horrible though, just my personal opinion.
