August 2019 Wrap Up

IMG_8624

Hello lovelies!

Today I have my August 2019 Wrap Up. I can’t believe how fast the month of August went by. I don’t know about you, but to me, August seems to be one of the faster months of the year. During August I had a lot going on personally, and blog-wise as well.

In August I had family from out of town visit. I also started a big Project that I hope to announce sometime soon (perhaps in the next few weeks) as well.

Blog wise, I had a lot going on too. An overload of book reviews, which might be dwindling down within the rest of the year (because of the Big Project). I also had time to post non-book-review-y things this month as well.

How was your August 2019? 

Enjoy! Continue reading

Chosen for Sight, Volume 01; by Delia Stewart | Book Review

Hello, today I have my book review of

Chosen for Sight, Volume 01, by Delia Stewart.

46271204._SY475_I used to be your run-of-the-mill Los Angeles teenager. Middle of the pack in looks, popularity, and intelligence. Literally nothing special.

And then we moved to New York City and I couldn’t get back to normal no matter how much I might want to.

Instead of normal, my average day had me talking to a ghost in my bedroom, chatting with my freaky tarot-reading neighboras she babbled about prophesies, and being escorted to and from school by the two hottest guys I’d ever seen. The kind of guys who’d never even have spoken to me in LA.

Of course, I couldn’t just go to a new school and make a few friends, couldn’t find a cute boy to take me to a dance or a football game like a normal girl. No, I had to stumble into whatever insanity my life had become, with its underground academies, kids with terrifying powers, and some ancient prophesy that made everyone believe I was “the one.” As if this was some Matrix redux.

The problem is, the longer I’m living this new life, the more I’m starting to believe what everyone is saying about an ancient evil rising from beneath the city.

But I don’t think I’ll ever believe I’m the only one who can stop it…

Chosen for Sight is a serialized reverse-harem paranormal story featuring magic, demons, and plenty of swoon-worthy heroes!

From GoodReads [x]:

“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.

I had incredibly high hopes for this novel. And you know what? I should have looked into Chosen for Sight more. I thought that this book would be a longer story—and then when I finished the book I found out that it was only 46 pages.

A lot of this story felt really….wack to me. Like this story feels out of place, in a way. Which is great since Chosen for Sight seems to be an Urban Fantasy novel. 

A good thing about Chosen for Sight Volume 01, is that we get a feel of the characters involved but beyond that we don’t know much about anyone—that includes the main character.

And even though the Chosen for Sight series has a reverse harem theme to it, there weren’t actually any romance nor sex in this first book. I cannot speak for the other volumes though.

I’m curious about the rest of the story, but I don’t think I’m curious enough to actually go ahead and read more. 

I give Chosen for Sight Volume 01, 1 star.
