INTRODUCTION

Hi everyone My name is Victoria Zumbrum, 40 years old, married 14 years with 1 son. This is my very first blog. So bear with me. I have always wanted to have my own blog. I have always loved to read. I enjoy getting lost in a good book.
I love becoming part of the story and characters. I am hoping to bring my love of books to my readers.

I love reading different genres such as paranormal, young adult, romance, romantic suspense, mystery, Christian fiction, some horror, etc. The list goes on. I started reviewing books a couple of years ago and have done reviews for different blogs and even some authors. I really have enjoyed reviewing books and I will continue to do so. If anyone is interested in me reviewing a book for them, please contact me. I still have a lot to learn regarding my own blog so bear with me. I welcome and appreciate all followers.

Review of Once Upon a Haunted Moon by K.R. Thompson





Having to share your soul with a wolf isn't easy, but that is what Brian Shaw is learning to do. Amidst learning about Indian legends and folklore, he's also finding out what becoming a Keeper truly is.

And that's just the easy part.

An old evil is stalking the forest and it is up to the Keepers to discover her secrets before she destroys all they hold dear. As legend, ghosts, and the past link to the present, will Brian and the Keepers be strong enough to defeat her? Or will history repeat itself once again?

The Keeper Saga recommended reading order:
Hidden Moon, book one
Once Upon a Haunted Moon, book two
The Wolf, the prequel
Wynter's War, book three
Charmed

MY REVIEW:

ONCE UPON A HAUNTED MOON IS THE SECOND BOOK IN THE KEEPER SAGA SERIES.  THE SECOND BOOK IN THE SERIES IS JUST AS GOOD AS THE FIRST BOOK.  IN THIS BOOK, WE LEARN EVEN MORE ABOUT THE WEREWOLVES AND THE NATIVE AMERICANS.  BRIAN, THE NEWEST WOLF IS LEARNING WHAT A KEEPER IS AND WHAT HE MUST DO.  THERE IS A LOT OF ACTION THROUGHOUT THE BOOK.  AN OLD EVIL IS RELEASED AND THE WOLVES AND NIKKI MUST STOP IT AND SAVE ONE OF THEIR OWN BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.  WILL THE WOLVES AND NIKKI SUCCEED?

I LOVE THE KEEPER SAGA SERIES.  WHAT A WONDERFUL SERIES.  IT IS TRULY MAGICAL AND FILLED FOLKLORE AND INDIAN LEGENDS.  I LOVE THE DIFFERENT CREATURES AND CHARACTERS THAT THE AUTHOR HAS CREATED.   I LOVE HOW THE WOLVES AND NIKKI ARE CONNECTED TO EACH OTHER.  THEY ARE VERY PROTECTIVE OF HER.  I LOVE THE FOLKLORE IN THIS SERIES.  I LOVE HOW THE AUTHOR HAS DIFFERENT PARANORMAL CREATURES.  I LOVE READING THE LEGENDS AND THE FOLKLORE.  THIS SERIES IS DEFINITELY A MUST READ IF YOU LOVE PARANORMAL.  YOU WILL LOVE K.R. THOMPSON'S WRITING AND CHARACTERS.  I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO READING THE NEXT BOOK IN THE SERIES. 5 STARS

Review of Vein River by Kellie Honaker





The locals of Vein River fear the covered bridge and avoid it at night at all costs.

They say she hangs in the darkness, her long silk nightgown drifting in the breeze. She swings from a noose, her toes rat-tat-tatting across the hood should someone drive beneath her.

As legend goes, if you receive her withering kiss, you either die, get sick, or go stark raving mad. Your only chance of pardon is to kiss her dangling feet and beg for mercy.

The fate of the town rests on the shoulders of Annie Forrester , a sixteen year-old girl with psychic powers.


Only Annie will have the strength to enter the bridge and face the evil head on.

MY REVIEW

I REALLY LOVED VEIN RIVER.  IT IS THE FIRST BOOK I HAVE READ BY KELLIE HONAKER AND IT WON'T BE THE LAST BOOK I READ BY HER.  I WAS DRAWN INTO THE STORY FROM THE VERY FIRST PAGE UNTIL THE END.  WE MEET ANNIE FORRESTER WHO IS 16 YEARS OLD AND IS DEALING WITH HER PARENT'S DIVORCE.  ANNIE AND HER MOTHER MOVE TO VEIN RIVER FOR A FRESH START.  THE LOCALS HAVE A LEGEND ABOUT THE COVER BRIDGE NEAR ANNIE'S HOME.  THE BRIDGE IS TO BE AVOIDED AT NIGHT AT ALL COSTS.  THERE IS A LEGEND ABOUT A GIRL THAT HANGS IN THE DARKNESS BY A NOOSE.  IF SHE KISSES YOU, YOU ARE NEVER THE SAME AGAIN OR YOU DIE.  WILL ANNIE HAVE THE COURAGE TO FACE THE EVIL ON THE BRIDGE?

VEIN RIVER IS A SCARY, CREEPY, MYSTERIOUS AND SUSPENSEFUL READ. I DID NOT WANT TO PUT THE BOOK DOWN.  THE AUTHOR WILL KEEP YOU IN SUSPENSE AND GUESSING WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT.  YOU WILL BE ON THE EDGE OF THE SEAT  TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT.  ANNIE'S CHARACTER BECOMES STRONGER AND MORE MATURE THROUGHOUT THE BOOK.  SHE HAD TO GROW UP QUICK AND IS SPECIAL.  THE GIRL IS TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH ANNIE.  SHE WANTS HER TO KNOW THE TRUTH OF WHAT HAPPENED TO HER.  SLOWLY ANNIE STARTS TO UNCOVER THE TRUTH BEHIND THE COVERED BRIDGE AND THE GIRL.  YOU WILL DEFINITELY BE SURPRISED BY THE TRUTH.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SCARY STORY, I RECOMMEND YOU READ VEIN RIVER.  THE STORY IS DEFINITELY SCARY, CREEPY AND SUSPENSEFUL.  I LOVE THE AUTHOR'S WRITING AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO READING MORE OF HER BOOKS.   5 STARS
