Book Blitz: Remember Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram + Giveaway



Hello everyone! So you'll probably noticed that it's been quite a few days since we've post here in our blog and that's because of our busy schedule. Clarissa's preparing for her Civil Engineering board exam, Dea on her internship and me, I just had my Roast (6 mos presentation) on our office earlier, so yeah we don't have much time to post anything on the blog lately. But recently I've received a very good news from one of my favorite author, Kelly Oram, and that's the final book for Jamie Baker Series will be released really soon! If you knew me you'll know that I really really love this author, I've been a fan of her books for the past years. I love featuring her works here in our blog and just enjoy every bit of her books. So, just imagine my excitement when she announced that Remember Jamie Baker(which let me tell you I've,and all of her fans, been waiting for years!) will be released soon! I was sooo happy I just can't wait to get my hands on this book! And since the book is not yet release will have to settle first on its teasers and a giveaway for everyone. So without further ado, I present to you Remember Jamie Baker! Have fun reading! ;) 


Remember Jamie Baker
Series: Jamie Baker # 3
Author: Kelly Oram
Publisher: Bluefields Publishing
Genre(s): YA sci-fi, comic book, romance
Blurb:
The explosive and long awaited conclusion to the Jamie Baker trilogy!

Plagued by memory loss, Jamie Baker searches high and low for the answers to who she is, where she comes from, and why she’s able to do things other humans can’t. A not-so-simple task when she’s hiding from the people responsible for her amnesia—an evil scientific research company that wants to capture her at any cost.

When Jamie’s quest for the truth reveals a devastating betrayal from the one person she thought she could trust, she’s forced to team up with a secret military organization in order to ensure her safety and stop Visticorp’s horrific human experimenting once and for all.

I gasped, shocked, and my eyes fell to his arm and the round scar I’d seen their earlier. A bullet wound. I looked at Ryan, and he surprised me even more by grinning. “That’s right, I took a bullet for you, babe.”
“You…” My voice trailed off as I tried to get a grip on the sudden swell of emotions raging inside me. Guilt, gratitude, horror…take your pick. I felt them all.
Ryan squeezed my hand. “That’s a good reason to promote a guy to boyfriend status, don’t you think?”
He was joking about this? He was shot, and he wanted to joke about our relationship? Was he for real?
“Don’t fall for it, Angel,” Johnny G teased. “It was barely a flesh wound. It didn’t even hit anything vital. I’ve been shot twice myself. It’s really not that bad.”




Jamie #3 was everything I had been hoping and waiting for. It brought all the feels. Jamie has the right amount of spunk, bravery and intelligence to make her an extremely likeable and relate-able heroine. I kinda want to be her BFF. And Ryan Miller ... swoon. He is everything. He made Jamie love him again and again, and he did it with me also. Every single book I have fallen in love with Ryan, and every time I reread I will love him even more. Great job, Kelly! It was a journey worth waiting for.  ~ Jaymin Eve, USA Today bestselling author of The Hive trilogy

"Full of great one-liners and intense longing, Remember Jamie Baker is a satisfying conclusion to a fantastic trilogy. Readers will appreciate the new friends Jamie makes, the measures she takes to restore her memory, and the return of Ryan Miller. OH YES. That charming combination of ego and sunshine does show up. I promise. And it's epic." ~ The Dragon’s Nook book reviews

"Kelly Oram’s back with a new Jamie Baker adventure that’s as action-packed as it is hilarious, with all new characters to love and some old favorites that you’ll find yourself falling for, all over again! Remember Jamie Baker is an unforgettable end to a truly amazing series!” ~ Jena Leigh author of the Variant series

" This is the best book of the trilogy. Remember Jamie gives us the steamiest Ryan & Jamie yet with beach fantasies (oh, Kelly went there!) and more curl-your-toes “awwww” scenes where once again pretty boy Ryan Miller steals your heart (and Jamie’s) as he tries to help her remember exactly who she was. Oh? And did I mention your favorite sidekicks (and who doesn’t love our favorite reporter and BFF?) are back? Or how about all of the kickass superhero action we’ve been dying for with Visticorp? Yea, it finally happens and it does not disappoint (be ready for some twists!)…. But the real reason you’ll keep reading? Because Jamie needs to remember! This whole series has honestly been a whirlwind and finally getting the epic conclusion we hoped for is the best gift Kelly could possibly give her readers. Fans of Meg Cabot’s quick wit and normal girl-hero complex (a la 1-800-Where-R-U), the tv show Smallville, or superhero tropes in general will dive right into this one. And who can forget fans of Ryan Miller? You will definitely need your fix." ~ Rachel E. Carter, author of the Black Mage series

Series Summary: "Most superhero stories start with a meteor shower or a nasty insect bite, but mine actually starts with a kiss." The Jamie Baker series is an electrifying superhero origin story about a girl with extraordinary powers and the irresistible guy who helps her learn to control them.
Reading Order: Being Jamie Baker, More Than Jamie Baker, Remember Jamie Baker
(this series is complete)

Review and Excerpt Tour for THE FALLEN PRINCE by Amalie Howard + Giveaway(INTL)

          THE FALLEN PRINCE - Review & Excerpt Tour banner


We hope you're ready to be transported by Amalie Howard's THE FALLEN PRINCE, a Young Adult Science Fiction novel and the sequel to THE ALMOST GIRL! Publishers Weekly calls the first in the series “a high-octane thriller.” Grab your copy of this amazing novel today!


 

As the last two people disappear behind Caden and his two Faction guards in a blue haze, I take a breath and hit the coordinates on the keypad.

Era’s eyes meet mine. Even in a wheelchair she still looks fierce. “Remember your promise.”

I’m not sure whether she means my promise to not get in the way or my promise to defend Neospes with my life. Maybe they’re one and the same. “I remember.”

I hit ENTER.

The wind sucks at my gut, pulling me in toward my belly-button as if every part of my body is dissolving and coalescing into that one point. I keep my eyes open for as long as possible, watching time elongate on all sides before the wormhole breaks me into a million pieces. The nanobes harden around my cells, making them impervious to the gravitational changes in pressure. For a second, I feel invincible.

Unbreakable.

At the midpoint of the transition, all is silent, like being in the center of a storm before things start picking up. I’m snapped back together again, disparate cells rushing together toward the whole. As I exit the jump, everything explodes into motion at once.


Voices are coming at me from every direction—screaming and yelling. My ninjatas are out of their harness and in my hands before I can blink. The hot glint of metal reflects o the bodies surrounding us, the sour scent of rotting flesh filling the air. Reptiles—hundreds of them.





THE FALLEN PRINCE - cover
The Fallen Prince
by  Amalie Howard
Published by: Sky Pony Press
Publication date:April 5th 2016
Genres:Young Adult, Science Fiction
Blurb:

Riven has fought for a hard-won peace in her world, and has come to shaky terms with who and what she is—a human with cyborg DNA. Now that the rightful ruler of Neospes has been reinstated, Riven is on the hunt for her father in the Otherworld to bring him to justice for his crimes against her people.

But when she receives an unwelcome visit from two former allies, she knows that trouble is brewing once again in Neospes. The army has been decimated and there are precious few left to fight this mysterious new threat.

To muster a first line of defense, her people need help from the one person Riven loathes most—her father. But what he wants in return is her complete surrender.

And now Riven must choose: save Neospes or save herself.

Blog Tour: Anything You Want by Geoff Herbach + Giveaway




Hi Everyone!, Today we have Geoff Herbcah, author of Anything You Want, on our blog to show us his playlist for the book! I really think that the premise of the book is so cute, one because it is in the perspective of a boy--I mean we know  we don't get much of that--but also because it'll talks about the unplanned pregnancy or rather a miracle you just didn't expect to happen right away *wink* So yeah without further ado take it away Geoff! =)

These are songs I used a lot to think about the book. I’m definitely not a writer who can write while music is playing, though. I like music too much to be able to do two things at once when it’s playing.

Al Green’s, Let’s Stay Together: Taco wants this with Maggie so much.

Paul Anka’s You’re Having My Baby: Because, she’s having his baby.

Florence and the Machine’s Dog Days: He thinks maybe it’s the end of hard times. He’ll make his own family!

Neutral Milk Hotel’s Holland 1945: Taco believes in reincarnation.

Flight of the Bumblebee, by Rimsky-Korsakov: This is what his brain sounds like
sometimes. 

Prince’s Kiss: This I show Maggie makes him feel. 

Welcome to the Jungle, by Guns and Roses (for Darius): Because Darius likes to rock.

Joanna Newsome’s Good Intention Paving Company: This is for Maggie, because she will be this smart and this grounded someday (not now, though – she’s just a kid, too).

Ooh Child, by the Five Stairsteps: Finally, this is for everybody. This is what I want all people to know when things are rough.




Taco’s mom always said, “Today is the best day of your life, and tomorrow will be even better.” That was hard to believe the day she died of cancer and when Taco’s dad had to move up north for work, but he sure did believe it when Maggie Corrigan agreed to go with him to junior prom. Taco loves Maggie – even more than the tacos that earned him his nickname. And she loves him right back. 
Except all that love? It gets Maggie pregnant. Everyone else may be freaking out, but Taco can’t wait to have a real family again. He just has to figure out what it means to be a dad and how to pass calculus. And then there’s getting Maggie’s parents to like him. Because it would be so much easier for them to be together if he didn’t have to climb the side of the Corrigans’ house to see her…
