Blog Tour: Savor (Vicious Feast #1) by Kate Evangelista

Copy provided by author for review!
Savor (Vicious Feast, #1)Savor by Kate Evangelista
4 of 5 Stars

"Here, in my apartment, the white rabbit disguised as a Gothic Lolita girl offered me a chance of a lifetime"

Dakota Collins is a photography student, and after watching Vicious preform it's them she wants to cover for her final project. 

Luka Visraya, Vicious bass player, is mysterious and just oozes sexuality.  And he has a hold on Dakota like no other. 

Moving in with the band for a month was not what she expected it to be.

I want to say thank you to   for providing me with a copy for review.

Like other books I've read by her, this one did not disappoint  and like the others her use of description in telling the store aides in providing a great reading experience.

(Review is made short at this time due to bad weather that is coming this way, needed to get this up just incase I lost power. Will edit with a better/bigger one a later on)

The Inventor's Secret (Cragbridge hall #1) by Chad Morris

The Inventor's Secret (Cragbridge hall, #1)The Inventor's Secret by Chad  Morris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

From blurb: Imagine a school in the year 2074 where students don’t read history, but watch it happen around them; where running in gym class isn’t around a track, but up a virtual mountain; and where learning about animals means becoming one through an avatar.

Abby and Derick, twins who are about to start their new school year at Cragbridge Hall. A school that is the most prestigious schools around, in the world even. A school that their grandfather founded. You see he's this major Major inventor, creating one of the best inventions to date, the Bridge, it lets you see history as it happens.

So for this school you got to be pretty darn special and advanced to get into it. And well for Derick that's nothing he never fails at anything he does. He has the grades. Abby on the other hand, she's pretty much just average. So adjusting to this new life is a little harder on her then others.

Now on top of this new life, they find out their grandfather and both parents are missing and it is up to them to figure out what happened and find them before it's too late.

The Inventor's Secret, is a wonderful mystery for middle graders. Entertaining and informative at the same time. A younger me would have really enjoyed this story. It's great way to teach children some history and the importance of why things happened and how it is up to us and future generations to not make the same mistakes as the past.
