I apologize for all the time I have spent off this cite. I have read so many amazing books, but every time I try to upload a review this cite gets all glitchy. Especially when I'm trying to set up pictures. I will try my best to get everything on order, but I do apologize if some of the reviews are set up a little odd. I will try my best to get everything running smoothly.

Be sure to read the cloak society series:
Pegasus: Olympus At War
Book two in the Pegasus series, by Kate O'Hearn
Emily is a strong character: She is kind, intelligent, and persistent. I think she is the perfect heroin. As you read through this book you get to see how she is adjusting to her new life and her new image.
With the help of her friends Emily is confident that she can take on the world.
My book Rating: ***** meg-a-stars

Shelby Bach grew up reading every book she could find and writing stories in battered notebooks. She also rarely came home with a clean shirt and had lots of accidents that ended with a hunt for Band-Aids. Nowadays she writes on her laptop rather than in a notebook, but not much else has changed.
I am honored to say that Shelby Bach has agreed to an interview! Those of you who read my review blog probably know that I am a HUGE fan of Shelby's books. So... Thank you Shelby!
Without further ado, here is the interview.
-I'm glad to know you are ok :)
Now, the second thing I mean about learning how to listen to your story is learn what your story wants you to do with it—especially in relation to the world. For instance, when I was in middle and high school, I wrote a ton of stories that did NOT want to be shared…even though a lot of friends were curious about what I was writing all the time. So, I kept them to myself. Then I wrote some stories that only wanted to be shared with a few of my friends—the ones who loved reading and writing as much as I did, and that worked out pretty well. Next, in college, I wrote one that was adventurous enough to be shared with strangers, so I listened and put it online. People seemed to like it (but not everybody). The Ever Afters came a few years after that, and it felt different from the very beginning. It burned to be told AND to be shared—which is why I worked so hard to get it published. I'm still a firm believer that not every story needs to be published, and I also believe that writers can feel the difference if they listen to their stories.
Once again, thank you Shelby Bach!

Book four in the Heroes Of Olympus series, by Rick Riordan
Heroes of Olympus, Book Four
Coming October 8, 2013
At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.
The House Of Hades is another wonderful addition to the Heroes Of Olympus series. You get to see more of your favorite characters: Percy, Annabeth, Leo, Jason, Piper, Hazel, Frank, and Nico. You even get to see some of the characters from previous books, but you also get to meet some new ones!
This book has you sitting on the edge of your seat and leaves you wanting more! There is action, adventure and witty comments around every corner. The House Of Hades has a great plot, great characters, and pulls the reader into the story.
In this book Rick Riordan has taken a different approach, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. There are many secrets and surprises that unravel in this book. In my personal opinion some parts are overdone, but that does not change the fact that it is an awesome book.
My book rating:**** meg-a-stars
