When a serial killer strikes women who all have a similar appearance, the police department’s Special Crime Investigation Team is stumped.

"Before I could do anything impulsive and improper, I stammered another goodbye and hurried away. Despite wanting to, I forced myself not to look over my shoulder at Alec. If I had been the sort of girl who kept a diary that was more than a list of books I'd read and my thoughts on them, I'd have run home to record this encounter."-Rebel Mechanics by Shanna Swendson

Summary

Blood and Salt by Kim Liggett ~ Book Spotlight & Giveaway!

Image
About the Book: 

Romeo and Juliet meets Children of the Corn in this one-of-a-kind romantic horror.

“When you fall in love, you will carve out your heart and throw it into the deepest ocean. You will be all in—blood and salt.”

These are the last words Ash Larkin hears before her mother returns to the spiritual commune she escaped long ago. But when Ash follows her to Quivira, Kansas, something sinister and ancient waits among the rustling cornstalks of this village lost to time.

Ash is plagued by memories of her ancestor, Katia, which harken back to the town’s history of unrequited love and murder, alchemy and immortality. Charming traditions soon give way to a string of gruesome deaths, and Ash feels drawn to Dane, a forbidden boy with secrets of his own.

As the community prepares for a ceremony five hundred years in the making, Ash must fight not only to save her mother, but herself—and discover the truth about Quivira before it’s too late. Before she’s all in—blood and salt.

My Review

Family Magic took me on a journey from the first page up until the last chapter. And yes, some of the character's frustrated me but they also made the story even more enjoyable. Especially with a character such as Sydlynn a teenager that has to juggle being both a witch and a demon plus some school bullies who don't know who they're messing with.
Sydlynn is very stubborn and usuall…

Ugly Duckling Series: Perfect Match ~Thailand Drama

Image
Name: Perfect Match Language: Thai with English subtitles Episodes: 9
My Review 


Perfect Match is about Junior a girl who has it all,  beauty, wealth, the perfect boyfriend, and amazing friends or so she thinks. When Junior starts being criticized on social media for having big cheeks (or so people say because I don't see it) this leads her to making the worst mistake she could ever make. Which is getting a thread lift, only to find out she's allergic to the chemicals. Now she's stuck with a face that no one can bare to look at and learns the hard way that if she's not pretty, the people who she thought cared about her, in reality don't really at all. So, she's left with only one option which is to go to college in the country side and get the treatment she needs and wait things out. She's not expecting to fall in love or to have someone actually love her for who she is and not her pretty face or money.

In the begining Junior feels a lot of self-pity after all…

Goodreads Summary
Wren Noble is dead—she was born that way. Vibrant, unlike other dead things, she craves those rare moments when her twin sister allows her to step inside her body and experience the world of the living. 
Lark Noble is alive but often feels she belongs in the muted Shadow Lands—the realm of the dead. Known as the crazy girl who talks to her dead sister, she doesn’t exactly fit in with the living, though a recent suicide attempt and time in a psych ward have proved to her she’s not ready to join her sister in the afterlife. 

Now the guy who saved Lark’s life needs her to repay the favor. He and his friends have been marked for death by the malevolent spirit of a vicious and long-dead serial killer, and the twins—who should know better than to mess with the dead—may be their on…
