#BookReview--> How I Exiled My Inner Bitch by Miv Evans


OK. I have to be honest here. When I received this book from the author for a R&R, I was a bit hesitant about reading it. Firstly, because of the title which looked a bit inappropriate and so not my style. But the blurb intrigued me. Secondly, because the book would be the first of its kind I would read so I was not sure if I could rate it properly. Although not sure if I would like the book, I decided to give it a try and once I started reading it, I was hooked. :)

How I Exiled My Inner Bitchis the story of Dionne who is 36 now but still haunted

Real families aren't always the ones you know about...

When Christine Blacksworth's larger-than-life father is killed on an icy road in Magdalena, New York, a hundred miles from the 'getaway' cabin he visited every month, she discovers a secret that threatens everything she's always held to be true. Her father has another family which includes a mistress and a daughter. Determined to uncover the truth behind her father's secret life, Christine heads to Magdalena, prepared to hate the people who have caused her to question everything she thought she knew about her father. But what she finds is a woman who understands her, a half sister who cherishes her, and a man who could love her if she'll let him. The longer she's around them, the more she questions which family is the real one. . .

Meant for mature readers above 18 years.

#BookReview--> Hercule Poirot #19- Appointment With Death by Agatha Christie



"You do see, don't you, that she's got to be killed?"
The question floated out into the still night air, seemed to hang there a moment and then drift away down into the darkness towards the Dead Sea.

With this startling statement starts this great adventure, first published in 1938, which takes us on a ride that shows the reader the ugly and manipulative side of human nature. A psychological mystery from the Queen of Crime

#AuthorInterview--> Author in the Spotlight- Carl Proujan

Hi Friends,
I have always wondered how the authors first got the idea of writing? Was writing always a passion for them? Or did they get the calling after doing many different things in life?
Today's Author in the Spotlight is a person who has many achievements to his name. Author of The Madness Analog, Carl Proujan has been writing, in one form or another, for most of his life. And yet, he still found time to letter in three sports, serve in the U.S. Army, work as a merchant seaman, set foot upon the South Pole, dip a toe into the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, and the Dead Sea, raise three children into adulthood, and write Secrets of the Sea, a non fiction book about undersea exploration, which has been translated into a number of languages -- all before completing an eBook novel.With a degree in Chemistry and

#BlogTour, #BookReview, #AuthorInterview and #Giveaway--> Three Rules by Marie Drake

My Review:



Hope Wellman has a childhood full of horrific memories, a bone chilling recurring nightmare, and a persistent paranoid sense of being followed that she would rather keep repressed. 
Is evil reaching from beyond the grave to capture the tattered remnants of her soul once and for all, is it only a machination of her disturbed mind,
or is there something happening more sinister than even she can imagine?
Attending the funeral of her abuser is the first step in putting her life back together.

#AuthorInterview--> Author in the Spotlight- Michelle Congdon

Hey Friends,

I am so excited today to have with me Michelle Congdon, the author of the new book in the market "Slide". 

About the Author:

Michelle Congdon resides in Sydney, Australia. She has a Dalmatian named Jett, who to this day continues to hold an 8 year grudge against her after she had to leave him with her parents when she moved to the big city- this only proves animals are much like their owners. Michelle enjoys reading books of all sorts of genre's, watching way too many movies and TV shows (and Disney cartoons), singing out aloud to her favorite hits and going on adventures involving food and travel. Michelle is loud, talks a lot and shares an ever-growing list of fictional husbands with a friend. From when she was a small girl, she has always had an overactive imagination and has tried to put it to good use by sharing her stories with anyone willing to listen.

Welcome to Njkinny's World of Books, Michelle!

Firstly, Congrats for the successful release of your book "Slide". I totally loved your book

#ARCBookReview--> Slide by Michelle Congdon



A guilt ridden, shy and emotionally messed up girl and a baseball star playboy who unlike the girl loves the limelight. Slide is Michelle's new book in the market and is the story of two completely unsuitable people who fall in love but each has something to hide and reasons to run as far away as possible from each other. But even though everything tells them otherwise their hearts connect at first sight. :) 

Can these two find love and overcome all odds to find peace with each other? 
Can they trust each other and unburden the dark burdens they have been carrying all their lives?
Can "love conquer all" or are they just empty words?

#ReleaseDayBlitz--> Slide by Michelle Congdon

After surviving a horrific car accident that claimed the lives of her mother and brother, Evangeline made a promise to herself to never go back to the city filled with the memories of her tragic past. But when her estranged father suddenly falls ill, she has no choice but to return to New York and to the life she spent twelve years trying to avoid.

Since the accident, heiress to the multi-billion dollar Montgomery Empire, Evangeline has always feared the media attention that comes with having the Montgomery name and would immediately give it all up if it meant the chance to bring back her loved ones. Delicate and camera shy, the last person she should have on her mind is a type of guy like Ryan Fox.

Witty, extremely arrogant but undeniably good-looking are only a few words Evangeline can use to describe the New York Yankee’s hot-shot. The notorious bad boy― well-versed at playing the game both on and off the field― isn't fazed
