Unbound by Emily Goodwin

*ARC provided in exchange for an honest review, thank you!

The world of ghosts and spirits is nothing new to Anora Benson; she's spent her whole life trying to ignore them, trying to be normal. But when the Pricolici, a group of ancient bounty hunters, are sent after her, Anora realises she is more than just a medium. As a witch she has power, power she doesn't know how to use, power that makes her vulnerable to the demons that desire her gifts. Anora is alone and scared, forced to face the darkness on her own. Then she meets Ethan, a handsome and and mysterious stranger who shows up in her life right along with the magic, and he seems to know quite a bit abut her and the Coven she hails from. Will she risk everything in trusting him or risk fighting alone?

A bit of a sappy love story, but I admit that it had me in sighs and smiles throughout the book, just as well, as it helped to soften the scary-ass-shit that went down! I really did not expect it to keep me up at night shivering under my blankets, but ghosts make me uncomfortable, and demon dogs make me terrified. I really don't know if Anora's powers were worth the hell that came with them, literally. Anyway. While the plot was a little bit generic and not too captivating or inspiring, I still enjoyed it because dammit I love cliched love stories! I don't really know what else to say about this book, I mean, nothing about it really stood out for me, but I didn't dislike it either, and I was engaged throughout the entire story. If you want a break from life for a day, I'm sure there are better books you could be reading, but I don't think you would be disappointed in picking this one up either. 

Rating: 3/5

The Girl's Guide to the Apocalypse Cover Reveal

Author: Daphne Lamb
Release: Fall, 2015

Welcome to the Apocalypse. Your forecast includes acid rain, roving gangs and misplaced priorities, in this comedic take on the end of the world as we know it, from debut author Daphne Lamb.
As a self-entitled, self-involved, and ill equipped millennial, Verdell probably wouldn’t have ranked very high on the list of those most likely to survive the end of the world, but here she is anyway. Add in travelling with her work addicted boss, her boyfriend who she has “meh” feelings for, and a handful of others who had no businesses surviving as long as they have, and things aren’t exactly going as planned. But despite threats of cannibalism, infected water supplies, and possibly even mutants, Verdell is willing to put in as little effort as she can get away with to survive.
