Chapter 1 
Teleportation

 My stomach roiled. I hadn’t been able to sleep well for weeks since I’d seen that glimpse of the future. But Tara told me she hadn’t gotten any more from it. She said that meant we had time. It didn’t provide much comfort. I needed to put that away for later; today I had an important meeting. Kadeem had been locked up for five months, and I finally convinced my father to speak with him. We were going to meet with him in his study. Being honest about Kadeem would be the only way to earn his trust. I knocked on the door to my father’s study.
     “Come in,” he bellowed.
     I opened the door and strolled inside. “They should be bringing him in shortly,” my father said.
     I took a seat in one of the chairs in front of his desk. John, my father’s second in command, was standing to the side of his desk. He was so still you could mistake him for a statue. My mouth was very dry as I tried to swallow. I just wanted to get this meeting over with. A few minutes later, there was a knock on the door. 
     “Yes,” my father said.
     Sharaf and Tazman came through the door, each holding Kadeem by his arm, each arm in handcuffs. 
     “Sit him in the chair,” my father commanded.
     I gave Kadeem a smile, which he returned. Sonar, how I missed him! Then he fidgeted in the chair. Kadeem was nervous too—it surprised me. He rarely was. 
     “So what is it you wanted to discuss with me, Syira?” my father asked.
     I cleared my throat. “Kadeem has been very cooperative for the last several months. I wanted to discuss giving him some form of freedom.”
     My father stared at me impassively, but I continued, “Kadeem and I wanted to discuss a secret.”
     “And what secret might that be?”
     “Kadeem could have escaped at any time. He has not, because he wanted to prove his loyalty to you. He has a great power.” John, Sharaf, and Tazman seemed intrigued now by what I was saying. “He can teleport whenever he pleases.”
     “Teleport?” my father asked, raising his brow.
     “Kadeem,” I said, glancing over at him.
     Kadeem inclined his head to me and vanished.

My first memory is of the inside of a cardboard box. The material is gray and slightly rough to the touch. It smells of fluorescent light and ancient canyon floors.

I savor the feeling of being lifted from the shelf – rubbed and jostled against the almost-smooth interior of the box, as I’m carried through the aisles. My new owner places me on the till. The other products and I have talked about this day. Wondered when our time would come. The time to be purchased.

“Would you like a packet for that, ma’am?” the teller asks. I recognize his voice. He does stock-take on Sundays.

“Umm … yes,” says a nervous voice. Nervous, but forgiving. I like her already.

The crinkle-swoosh of plastic competes with the sound of a radio. Sunlight perforates the miniscule holes in the edges of the cardboard that encloses me. I feel warmth for the first time. She drives me home.

The roof of the box opens, and I’m out. In the world. Her face is just as I’d imagined. Elfin and freckled. No frown lines. Her eyes are intense as they follow my instructions.

I tingle at the touch of her fingers. Delicate, careful. Fleshy and warm. Her lips curl into a smile, before she places me at the back of a dark shelf. The other lubes at the store told me this would happen. Life’s not all action for us. But when our owners take us for a night out of the closet, the world comes alive. Or that’s what the other lubes say.

There aren’t many voices in her apartment. I wait patiently at the back of the closet, as the weeks and months pass. Just when I think she’s forgotten me, one warm evening the door of the apartment opens. A man sits on the creaky springs of the bed.

“Are you ready?” His voice is young. Excited.

“Yes,” she says. I know she’s trying not to sound nervous, like she did that day at the store when she purchased me. 

And then it begins.

Slumber by Christy Sloat {Review}

 

 

 

 

Not all princesses get their happily ever after... 

They tell me I killed my boyfriend Phillip in cold blood. I stabbed him twenty one times. I’m only seventeen years old, and I am serving life in Spindle Ridge Asylum for the Criminally Insane. 

I don’t remember killing him, so it’s really hard to believe I’m capable of murder. In fact I don’t remember anything before I came to Spindle Ridge, not even my boyfriend. 

I can only grasp onto my realistic dreams while the madness of the asylum threatens to pull me under. I dream I’m a beautiful princess and there is an evil faerie named Maleficent who is bent on my destruction. The dreams are the closest thing I have to memories of my life, except they aren’t real. 

I’m crazy. I’m not a princess. 

They’re the mad illusions of an irrational teenage girl, right? 

They’ve assigned me a new doctor, and she says I can trust her, and that she’ll help me see the truth of who I really am. 

When she arrived she brought a new patient, Sawyer, who is everything Spindle Ridge isn’t: exciting, mysterious and beautiful. He promises he’s here to rescue me. Trusting either of them frightens me. 

Could it be possible that my dreams are more than just the imaginings of a delusional girl? Could they be truth?

I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review via YA Bound Book Tours. I made no guarantee of a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are my own.

I certainly enjoyed reading this retelling.

This is truly not your happily ever after fairy tale where birds sing and butterflies flutter on a beautiful summer day. This modern retelling of Sleeping Beauty is a heart breaking, gut wrenching read that will leave you feeling like true love does not conquer all. The world building in this book pulls you write into the asylum and you feel like you yourself are a patient there. Characters are strong and believable and the story line is well written. the author has done a superb job with this book and I can't wait to read the second book, Awaken.

My favorite quote in this book was; "You know, they say that anything can be cured by true love."

I give this book:

ZIA: The Teenage Zombie and the Undead Diaries {Review}

 

 

 

 

Zia would give anything to be a typical teenager... again. Heck, she’d settle for being a vampire or smelly werewolf, but a member of the walking dead? The lowliest of all the monsters? No way! Nothing is worse than being a skin-sloughing, limb-losing, maggot-housing, brain-craving undead girl. Nothing.

It wouldn’t be so bad if humans didn’t insist on “Living Impaireds” wearing bands to keep their insatiable appetites in check. And if LIs want to coexist with humans, then rules must be followed, no matter how ludicrous they might seem. Why do undead teenagers have to go to high school anyway?

Zia does her best to blend in and go unnoticed, but when a new group of LIs are bused in from another school and she finds herself part of a growing horde, all bets are off.

Besides, rules are meant to be broken—especially when an unbeating heart is pulled in two different directions.

I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review via YA Bound Book Tours. I made no guarantee of a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are my own.

I really loved reading this book as it takes on a new outlook on zombies. What's so different about a zombie book you ask? Well humans live side by side with LI's {Living Impaired}. LI's are zombies, vampires and werewolves who live within society and wear collars that prevent them from harming humans. Reading Zia's diary entries really bring you to a complete understanding of what it is like to be one of the undead.

This read hooked me right from the very start and kept me captured throughout the entire book. The author has written an exciting story line full of strong characters and I love how she gave a familiar genre a new spin. This has become one of my favorite books and I highly recommend that you read it. I look forward to reading more of the author's books and I am going to keep my fingers crossed in the hopes she writes a second book about Zia and her friends.

I give this book:

 

 

 

 

 

I hear voices. Tiny fictional people sit on my shoulders and whisper their stories in my ear. Instead of medicating myself, I decided to pick up a pen, write down everything those voices tell me, and turn it into a book. I’m not crazy. I’m an author.


For the most part, I write contemporary Young Adult novels. However, through a writing exercise that spiraled out of control, I found myself writing about zombies terrorizing the Wild Wild West—and loving it. My zombies don’t sparkle, and they definitely don’t cuddle. At least, I wouldn’t suggest it.

I live on the benches of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with two lovely children, one teenager, and a very patient husband. I graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in English, not because of my love for the written word, but because it was the only major that didn’t require math. I can’t spell, and grammar is my arch nemesis. But they gave me the degree, and there are no take backs.

As a child, I never sucked on a pacifier; I chewed on a pencil. I’ve been writing that long. It has only been the past few years that I’ve pursued it professionally, forged relationships with other like-minded individuals, and determined to make a career out of it.
