Book Haul: Jan 2016 // Cover-love! *drools*

Originally posted on Book Enthral:
So I wanna say I was good this month! I didn’t spend outrageously, yet I still managed to get a good number of books! Do you think we could actually count this as a… Success?????!!! After finishing Shatter Me earlier this month, I had to go see how the rest of the series was going to go! THOSE EYES ON THE COVER ARE ACTUALLY GORGEOUS!  After seeing the whole series, my favourite’s got to be Ignite Me (BRB while I die over this cover!). I’ll hopefully get to devouring the rest of this series next month! Also, because I loved – like, actually fangirl so hard for – Snow Like Ashes, I needed to know what was going to happen in Ice Like Fire! I’m so excited!! I have heard she’s not with the guy I ship her with in this book though, so poo! OF COURSE, I had to get the new Alexandra Bracken book! Like, that could just come out and I not get excited about it (blasphemy!). I don’t…

Star Wars: Before the Awakening by Greg Rucka

RATING: 5/5 SYNOPSIS: The tales of Finn, Rey, and Poe in the days prior to the start of The Force Awakens. ? This book does a great job in helping to cement the things that you already thought about the characters after seeing the film and it also provides a nice backstory for Poe Dameron since we don’t see as much of him as we do Finn and Rey. In Finn’s story we get to see Stormtrooper training and really get into that whole hive mentality that keeps them all in check. I really enjoyed learning just a little bit more about the Stormtrooper teams and how they worked and I liked seeing them interact with each other outside of battle. I especially liked that we got to see some more of Captain Phasma and General Hux. I felt like I knew Phasma a little better after reading the section and I’m also more interested in Hux as a character. The relationship between Phasma and Finn was really interesting and I hope…

Praise for “The Colony”

My first book, the lunar action-thriller The Colony, has been out for about a month. Here’s what the reviews are saying: “Magical… by remixing just twenty-six different black ‘letters’ on a white page in multiple variations, Fred Colton has created a story that you can actually see inside your head.” -Janet Maslin, New York Times “Impeccable. To research The Colony, Fred Colton flew to the moon over a dozen times and spent thousands of hours hiking the lunar surface. He also lived on a diet of dehydrated space food for three full years and this dedication is evident on the page.” –Barry M. Smith, Amazon.com top 500 reviewer. “Colton cranks the tension in his action scenes tighter than a trampoline, or a cat’s asshole.” –Stephen W. Howland, Kirkus Reviews “My name is Ryan and I’m an alcoholic. The Colony is the reason I stopped drinking. What happened was that I got too hooked on the book to go crack open another Miller Genuine Draft. Now I’m sober and have rejoined…
