'ARROW' Comic-Con 2013 Sizzle Reel

Out of all the amazing shows The CW Network has brought us nothing is quite like ARROW. The show, based off the DC Green Arrow Comics centers around Oliver Queen, played by Stephen Amell. He starts off as a spoiled billionaire playboy who, when out on his father's yacht there's a storm and it sinks. After witnessing his father's suicide to give Oliver a better chance at survival, he is then stranded on an island thinking he's alone. Oliver learns how to survive though after going through a lot of really painful experiences. After five years he is found and able to get back to save his home, Starling City. When he gets back he returns to his family, but secretly becomes the vigilante known as "The Hood" and attempts to save his city from all of the corruption in it, which unfortunately his father helped create. This is just a very short summary of what the show is about written by me. Please check out the show to find out the whole story.

During Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego, California they aired an exclusive ARROW Sizzle Reel with some fantastic new never before seen footage from Season 2. Check it out below.


What did you all think of the sneak peek into Season 2 at the end of the video? Let us know in the comments!

Something Great by M. Clarke - ARC Book Review & Author Interview + Signed Book Giveaway!

Something Great
Release Date: July 16th, 2013
A New Adult novel by author M. Clarke aka Mary Ting (Crossroads Saga)


She didn’t know what she was missing…until he found her.
Maxwell Knight was positively trouble, dangerously good-looking, and seductively charming. He was everything Jenna didn’t need in her life. Only Max didn’t see it that way. His pursuit was relentless, making Jenna even more determined to push him away. All she wanted was security, a career, and love that was everlasting. 
Fresh out of college, life was simple and plain for Jeanella Mefferd, but she liked it that way. Every part of her life was smooth sailing; her friends, her job, and even the guy she’d started dating. Then one night, while at dinner with her best friend, she spotted someone who made her feel things she’d never felt before just by his mere presence—dangerous, heart pounding, breathless heat. Thinking she would never see him again, she brushed it off, but when she started to run into him unexpectedly, all she could think of was how he made her feel with his sweet flirtations. Everything about Maxwell Knight screamed trouble, especially when she found out he was her new boss’s son. Now, heading to a New York fashion show she’d dreamt about since she was a child, would she be able to focus on her career instead of Max, who had been scheduled to attend with her? As much as she tried to forget their encounters, his good looks, charm, smooth words, and determination to win her over gravitated her toward him. The next thing she knew, he was utterly consuming her, mind and body, and in places she’d never thought possible. Would she be willing to step over the boundary and risk her safety net?  Was she willing to take advice from her best friend and love hard and risk getting hurt, rather than not really love at all and possibly miss out on finding something great?


The first thing I should tell you all is that I'm not a frequent regular Adult Novel reader. I read many genres, but they usually all have some type of Paranormal or Fantasy element involved. I was contacted by my friend Mary letting me know she wrote a new book and asking if I'd like to review an ARC copy of it. Of course, I agreed. With that being said, I absolutely loved this new book, which is the first in a series. In this wonderful story by Mary, I learned that a love you are unsure of is something you should always give a chance and protect. A love so epic rarely happens more than once in a person's lifetime. Max and Jenna's chemistry and the love they have for each other gives me so much hope for my own love life one day. I really related to this story in a couple ways. Jenna has 3 best friends, Becky, Kate, and Nicole that always have her back and she theirs. The friendship she has with these women reminds me of a couple friends that I have and talk to about everything. Jenna is in a "safe" relationship with a man named Luke. This also reminds me of a relationship I was in, but ultimately ended because it wasn't going anywhere. After some misunderstandings and basic couple drama between Max and Jenna they end up professing their feelings to each other. What I really love about that part is how much I could feel the emotions pouring from the words they said to one another. All in all this book is an inspiring read for any woman who is losing hope of finding that one special man to complete them. This is not saying that we need men to complete us, but it's a blessing if we can find "the one." I can't wait to read the next book in this series to find out what happens between Jenna and Max next. Definitely read this book!


What was your inspiration for this story?

It started as a dare from my friends. I told themthere was no way I could write the sex parts…but apparently I could…lol!  Blush!!! I sort of had an idea: their jobs, where they lived, friends, family, but I had no plot. I just started from chapter one and let it go from there. When I told my friends, they were really excited.

Are the characters based off of anyone you know in real life or did you create them from scratch?  

The main characters’ personalities are based on my husband and me…but of course I’ve added a lot more spice to readers’ appeal. It was easier for the characters to come alive that way for me.

How long did it take you to write Something Great?

To tell you the truth, I think I finished the first rough draft in one month. Yup…one month. I had so much fun writing it that I just couldn’t stop writing. I was holding onto it because I was shy about it. After my friend read it and told me how much she loved it and wanted someone like Max, then I knew I had something to publish. I debated whether to try to find an agent or to self-publish. After speaking to several authors, I decided to self-publish. Then the hard part began…covers, editing, promoting, etc.

What do you love most about writing?

I get to create a story I enjoy reading aboutIt takes me to a place where I escape from everyday life stress. The best part is sharing my story with readers. Hopefully they will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing them.

When not writing what do you enjoy doing for fun?

Mary: I find myself on facebook and talking to friends I’ve meet around the world because of my books. How cool is that!!! I also enjoy watching movies and television shows-Vampire Diaries, Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, and The Voice.

In the next book, what can we expect between Max & Jenna?

Hot and steamy…lol! Let’s just say, I’ll be writing from Jenna’s and Becky’s points of view.

Matt and Becky seem like they would make a great couple. Are there going to be some steamy scenes between Matt & Becky with a possible relationship in the sequel?

Yes, yes, yes!!! Matthew is quite the characterand he is just as hot and sweet as Max.

Just for fun, if you had to be in a relationship with Max or Matt who would it be and why?

That’s not a fair question…lol! I would have tosay Max because Max came first.

REVIEW: The Madness Underneath (The Shades of London Book #2) by, Maureen Johnson

The Madness Underneath (The Shades of London Book #2)
Released: February 26th, 2013
By: Maureen Johnson  


"When madness stalks the streets of London, no one is safe…

There's a creepy new terror haunting modern-day London.
Fresh from defeating a Jack the Ripper killer, Rory must put her new-found hunting skills to the test before all hell breaks loose…

But enemies are not always who you expect them to be and crazy times call for crazy solutions. A thrilling teen mystery.
" Goodreads

Book Trailer:


note: this review contains The Name Of The Star spoilers. 

"Rory Deveaux walks a tight rope between two distinct groups of friends from her "new old" life in London, to her "new new" life in London."  - Megan Kaniasty
Rory is pushed from that tightrope, having her choices decided for her before she returns to Wexford. Cut from contact with Stephen, Boo, and Callum, Rory attempts "normal" life - well, as close to normal as she can get when  she can see ghosts, and destroy them with a single touch. Upon her return, she is reunited with her now boyfriend Jerome.

 Jerome represents Rory's normal life, and Stephen represents her new normal, when normal is seeing ghosts. As soon as Rory is returned to Wexford School, she is back on that tightrope, balancing between catching up with school work and having a normal boyfriend, to her life of putting murderous ghosts to rest with Stephen, Boo, and Callum. Normal normal, or ghosty normal? Jerome, or Stephen? - Who do you think she will choose?

I absolutely loved this book! Maureen Johnson creates these beautiful complex characters, and The Madness Underneath takes you further into their lives. This book made me laugh out loud, scream, cry, and throw it in my freezer - an emotional roller coster is what it is! I would have even given this book a 5 out of 5 star review if not for that HUGE thing at the end where after two books of falling in love with these characters, you get your heart ripped out and are left with absolutely no hope. Okay so, there is always hope, right? I give The Madness Underneath a 4 out of 5 star review! The third book could not come soon enough. The Shadow Cabinet is the third book in this series, and it is unknown at this time when the book will be released.

The Lux Series' book #4 'Origin' cover has been revealed!

A couple of hours ago the highly anticipated cover of the fourth book in Jennifer Armentrout's Lux series is finally revealed by The Luxen Army. This cover is bringing oh so many feels carried by the stare of piercing green eyes from the very toned, very sexy alien named Daemon Black! 

Would you like a sneak peek into the world Origin will take you in? Read the official blurb below:

“Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.
After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

Together, they can face anything.

But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?”
