Elementals, Rectors, and Channlers oh my!!!
Most everyone that knows me, knows that I love to read! Well, when my friend Holly told me about Denise Grover Swanks' Chosen series, I was unaware of how great these books are! I read all of them (there are a total of 4 novels"Chosen, Hunted, Sacrifice, and Redemption) in about a week. I couldn't put them down at all. There were a lot of sleepless nights, and very long days, because I chose to stay up and read instead of getting that precious sleep that I really needed with an infant. But I muddled through it and got along just fine with the little amount that I was getting. After I finished that series, I took a small break because I still had school that I needed to finish, so that I what I did. But after school was done for the semester, I dove right in and was looking for that next great book. So I go back to Holly and ask her for her advice (she didn't steer me wrong with the first one) She told me that Denise and some other authors were going to do a giveaway within the next week or so. So I waited, and while I waited, I read another of Denise's books called "Here", again I couldn't put it down. I finished that book within a day of starting it. I loved it! I messaged the author giving her my praise for the book and asked her when the next one was going to be released and she told me on Christmas eve! EEEKKKK!!!!! I couldn't wait that long, (it was only 5 days away). In the meantime, I continued to enter the hullabaloo that the authors were doing and ended up getting a book from +Heather McCorkle! "The Secret of Spruce Knoll" is a great book for Young Adults and for the regular adult! I again couldn't put it down. After I finished that one, I emailed Heather and gave her my praise and asked her what the other books in the series were. She emailed me back and told me "Channelers Choice", and "Rise of a Rector", and a little novella "Born of Fire" now, I have an e-reader and recommend one of these for anyone that is an avid reader. The price of the books are great! Anyways, I purchased both of the books and read them back to back, and I have to tell you, Heather did not disappoint. She is a great author, and she captures your attention from the get go! So I read those books, until the early morning hours of Sunday (like 2:30am) then I go to sleep. I wake up and check my email and what do I see? An email from Denise Grover Swank (OK it was from her newsletter) but I open it up and there in the newsletter the best news of all..."There" was now ready for purchasing! I purchase it and then start to read it! I had to take a break from it because we had things that we had to do that day, but when we got home it was on. I read that book until 4:30 in the morning and finished it! I couldn't put it down again! I am now getting ready to read another book, but just haven't figured out which one to start. As soon as I finish reading it, I will let you know how I feel about it!
