Splendor by Elana K Arnold Blog Tour

Welcome To Best Book's stop on this tour. We have on the blog today a Spotlight and giveaway :)
Check out this HERE for the other stops on this awesome tour.

Splendor, the stunning sequel to Sacred, is a story about changing friendships, family, romance, passion, the study of Kabbalah, and self-discovery.

Sometimes the answers we seek aren’t ours to find. . . .

Scarlett loves her boyfriend, the dashing, mysterious Will Cohen. But now he’s gone east for college, and Scarlett is stuck home on Catalina Island. Senior year should be a breeze, but between dealing with her parents’ separation and her wild best friend, Lily, things are off to a rocky start. And then there’s Gunner. Dangerous, dark, ferociously attractive Gunner. Lily’s potential boyfriend, Gunner . . .
     Scarlett distracts herself by spending time with her horse and delving into ecstatic mysticism, a way to practice Kabbalah. Through this practice, she hopes to learn to control her emotions, and begin to make sense of her place in the world. But Scarlett’s world is increasingly unrecognizable.
     Are Lily and Scarlett becoming too different to stay friends? Is Will still the love of Scarlett’s life, even though she has feelings for Gunner? Does being in love mean only being attracted to one person? The more Scarlett questions, the fewer answers there seem to be.

Praise for Splendor:

"As in Arnold’s earlier Sacred, teens will gravitate toward Scarlett and her problems. Arnold has painted a very realistic picture of teenage girls and their conflicting emotions. . . . Fans of the first novel will appreciate continuing Scarlett’s story and finding some closure with this sequel. Readers unfamiliar with Sacred will still be able to enjoy Splendor.”—VOYA

Praise for Sacred:

"Will appeal to many teens, especially fans of the Twilight series."--Booklist

"Filled with tension and angst. . . . Readers will be looking for the next installment."--School Library Journal

"A poignant novel of loss and grief, but also of hope."--VOYA

ELANA K. ARNOLD completed her M.A. in Creative Writing/Fiction at the University of California, Davis. She grew up in Southern California, where she was lucky enough to have her own horse--a gorgeous mare named Rainbow--and a family who let her read as many books as she wanted. She lives in Long Beach, California, with her husband, two children, and a menagerie of animals. She is represented by Rubin Pfeffer of the East/West Literary Agency. Sacred is her debut novel.

Following each chapter, the author will give you a peek into their own pantry with a dessert recipe and their reason for choosing it. Some of these recipes are in keeping with the theme of their first chapter, others are simply a family favorite.

Desert Angel one of my favorite books.

Desert AngelDesert Angel by Charlie Price
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Angel has been dragged about by her mum her whole life. One abusive boyfriend after another but Scotty the new boyfriend has crossed the line. After a massive fight Scotty kills Angel’s mum and buries the body. Now the only loose end is Angel, She knows what he did and she knows he will kill her next She needs to run but Scotty is a hunter and Angel is now the pray. Will Angel live to tell anyone what happened?

This book started with a bang. Readers are thrown into the action. I was shocked at what Angel had gone throw and you have a burning hatred for Scotty. He really loves causing pain which means his the target for the readers hate and anger. Within the first five chapters you get to grips with how far Scotty will go to kill Angel. While Angel is but a scared girl she is also smart and understands that crazy Scotty will never stop hunting her down.

I was amazed at how powerful the story was from the very beginning you see so much dark pain, anger and danger between Scotty and Angel. The book was about survival and it thrilled and scared me at the same time. I wanted to scream and shout along with the book I needed Angel to live and do well and while the book was only short it was packed to the max. Angel's fear and anger and the need to survive oozed through this book the whole way through. While Scotty sick need to hunt, kill and win gave me shivers.

I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I feared for Angel and wanted to kill Scotty myself. A master piece that had my heart racing to the very end!

Five stars.

Matchplay by Dakota Madison blog tour

Welcome to Best Book's stop on this tour, we have a Spotlight, Top 10 and giveaway today..

A Girl, a Guy, a Tournament and a Challenge

The Girl: At a time when most girls obsess about homecoming and high school prom, Rainy Dey spent her senior year caring for her dying mother. So when her father drops her off at college to start her freshman year, his words of advice to his bookish daughter are to start acting like a young person and finally have some fun.

The Guy: College senior, Aaron Donavan, aka Mr. Hot-and-Knows-It, is President of the Clubhouse, a social club for the college’s most wealthy and popular guys. Aaron can have any girl on campus except the one who challenges and excites him the most—Rainy Dey.

The Tournament: Every year, the senior members of The Clubhouse engage in a golf-inspired tournament to see who can sleep with the most freshman girls. When Rainy finds out about the tournament, she believes Aaron’s only interest in her is to score points by taking her V-Card.

The Challenge: Can Aaron convince Rainy that his feelings for her are true and that she won’t be just another notch on his tournament scorecard?

Cover Reveal: The Spell Of Summer By Dianna Hardy

Once times thrice, I bind thine heart
to mine, to hold, to never part.

Scribbled words on parchment found under her mother's bed - they couldn't possibly mean anything, even if her mum is a white witch. But to fifteen-year-old wild child, Meredith Goodwill, they meant the world when she uttered them to Jamie, the fun-loving boy who stole her heart that last summer she spent in Cornwall.

Thirteen years later and now a straight-laced accountant in London, the words have been forgotten; the summer a faded memory ... until Meredith stands at the altar on her wedding day, looks the man she's about to give her heart to in the eye, and calls him Jamie.

Her wedding is in tatters. To appease her hurt fiancé, and at her mother's insistence, Meredith's new focus is to track Jamie down and reverse whatever she unwittingly did when she spoke those words from her mother's spell. But how will she convince him to believe in 'magic' so he can help her undo it?

That's the least of her worries, because Jamie hasn't forgotten her, and the cheeky, brown-eyed boy with the messy locks is now the ballsy, smoky-eyed man with the tousled, bed-me hair.

It's summer all over again ... and the spell is far from finished.

The Spell of Summer will be hurtling into your life
June 2014

More detailed information on this summer release can be viewed at the author's website:
