ok this is going to be my backup Blog

With dealing with wordpress.com all day… I’ve come to realize that I really do like Blogger better, they have more features for free users… and won’t cost me tons of money I don’t have to run it…. if Google decides to be dicks and closes mine down then I will move to over here, but for now i’m more comfortable using Blogger than I am with wordpress.

Well….

Well the WordPress version of Book Lover’s Cozy Cafe is up and running, it’s very minimalistic at the moment, as I’m trying to figure out the whole wordpress layout and whatnot. Also  I am unable to pay for the upgraded version right now, so what I can and can’t do is limited with the layout and look of my blog. I am working on getting it customized to fit my style as I was accustomed to on Blogger. But nothing else has changed, my post are still the same and will eventually get everything the way I like it.

We’re Moving!!!!

Ok, I am making the switch from Blogger to WordPress. While Blogger may be easier to use and more user friendly they have become, a hindrance in their rules, and I keep hearing about  Blogs being shut down for spam cause they post their posts on Google+ and if you have yours set to Mature Audience, you could be in TOS violation for porn… I put my blog as the Mature preference because well, i’m an adult and while I will encourage children to read, and read alot. I don’t want to have to censor things I say, or put on my blog that is not appropriate for children. Not because I’m advertising porn.  So therefore, I’m making the switch! I don’t want to stay here and e in risk of losing my blog because I posted something on Google+ or because a book cover maybe to risque for Googles tastes.


I will make up another post for the new blog and will keep this one up for a week after I get my WordPress one completed and running so my followers can switch over.

Thank you to all who follow me here, and I hope I will continue to have you as followers as I make this transition.

BY: Yasmine Galenorn
SERIES: Indigo Court #2
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
PUBLICATION:  July 5th 2011 by Berkley (first published 2011)
AVERAGE RATING: 4.08

****SYNOPSIS****
Cicely Waters had always through she was simply one of the magic-born-a witch who can control the wind-but recently she discovered she’s also one of the shifting Fae. Now she must perfect her gift. Because Cicely and her friends may have escaped from Myst and her Shadow Hunters, but Myst has managed to capture the Fae Prince who holds Cicely’s heart.
*****MY REVIEW*****
Night Veil was a key book in the Indigo Court series. It sets you up for what’s going to happen in the rest of the series. Alliances and enemies have been made. Families are torn apart while some are reunited. This book is definitely interesting to read, and it has captured my attention. If you are looking for something with a little bit of everything, and different, then the Indigo Court Series is a definite must read.

REVIEW: (MIS)FORTUNE

(Mis)fortune (Judgement of the Six #2)(MIS)FORTUNE
By: Melissa Haag
Series: Judgement of Six #2
Genre: New Adult
Publication:  April 29th 2013 by Smashwords
Average Rating: 4.42

****SYNOPSIS****
Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.
After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one who can protect her… unless she can find someone just like him.
Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part strives to keep her safe. The second book of the Judgement of the Six series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?
*****MY REVIEW*****
This series is just starting out, and I still want more, more, more. I’ve never read a werewolf book or series quite like this. It held onto my attention from the minute I read the first words. Only putting it down because I had passed out from exhaustion(LOL). However I picked it back up immediately once I woke and took the day off from everything else just to kick back and read this book. Now that I have finished it, and loved it just as I had the first book, I am left wanting more, and even though the next book is being released this fall, I still think it’s too long of a wait, I want more!

So I must say I’ve done extremely well in what my intended goal was, I’m only a few books shy of what I was going for.

So in saying that, since I’m basically caught up on my RR’s, I’m gonna take a few days off from reviewing books that are RR’s and just relax and read & review what I happen to come across though, I am not forgetting these book, no way!!! I just need a break for a few days from them, and may go to a book on my TBR, to a RR book and work my way that way.
