What am I Contest 3

WHAT AM I CONTEST 3

Okay. This contest is for a book. You will not know what book it is because that is part of the contest lol. I will post a clue to what the book is and leave you to guess.

If you think you know what book it is by the one clue email me at msilvabooks@live.com with your answer. If only one person has guessed the book within the allowed time frame that person wins the book. If multiple people are able to guess the book with the one clue, all the names get put into a bowl and a random winner is chosen.

Now this is where it gets hard. The clues will be difficult so if no one can guess the book with the one clue, a second clue will be given to go with the first. Then another time limit will be posted with the clue and the same rules apply. (if one person guesses they get it if more than one then names in bowl).

This will keep going for UP TO 5 CLUES. The clues will get easier and the more clues in, the easier to guess the book, but this also means the more people to get it right the less chance you have to win.

So here are the rules.


1.This time the contest is INTERNATIONAL! YAY lol

2. You can use whatever you want to try and find what book i'm talking about (google, goodreads, etc)

3. DO NOT post the answer on the comments because that will ruin the contest, email me your answer. If I see any answers on the wall the contest WILL get withdrawn and therefore no winner.

4. play fair and have fun

5. One guess per person. Once 2nd clue is posted a second guess is allowed. Once 3rd clue is posted a 3rd guess is allowed. etc etc

Not to many rules but they should still be followed :)

First CLUE will be given sometime tomorrow(october 28) so stay tuned to the bookshelf to know when it's up. Good Luck to everyone and like I said have fun with it :)

AWAKENED REVIEW

AWAKENED BY EDNAH WALTERS

Awakened has everything someone could ask for in a book. Suspense, action, heart-pounding/nail biting moments, hot guardians and a kick-ass female lead character.
Awakened is about a girl named Lil Falcon. Lil is an orphaned child living with her grandfather, raised in a homeschooled setting she gets nervous when she finds out she's going to an actual high school; worried about fitting in. Lil lives the life of a gypsy and walks to the beat of her own drum, little does she know she's a guardian. A special being with extraordinary abilities, and the duty of killing demons and protecting the humans...Both things Lil does NOT want to accept, the last thing she wants is to be even more of an outsider but the powers that run within her veins are not something she can just turn away from especially when it means protecting the ones she loves.

When a strange and mysterious boy name Bran literally pops into her life asking for her grandfather's help, Lil becomes entranced by his personality and gorgeous face and body. As their relationship grows, Lil soon finds out that Bran hides a large and dangerous secret...He's half demon; half of the very things that Lil is suppose to hunt down and destroy, but deep down she knows that he is good. As her fellow guardians in training attempt to convince her to stay away from Bran; warning her of how dangerous he is, her grandfather gets kidnapped and the only way to find him is with Bran's help. Lil convinces her friends that Bran is one of the good guys, explaining to them that he is the only chance they have of finding the nature-bender that took her grandfather, and Bran's abilities and knowledge are the best chance they have of surviving a suicidal rescue mission.

Lil and the guardians realize that her grandfather's kidnapping was all just a trick to bring Lil closer to the enemy and when the truth of who she really is comes into focus, everything she's ever known; her life, her family, and herself, get ripped out from under her.
 Lil's special abilities; powers that no guardian has ever possessed, become evident throughout the story and the origin of her powers will leave you shocked.  Awakened is full of twists and turns, drama, and the unexpected. Every page left me wanting more. Bran is an amazing bad boy, that could make any girl's heart melt. His story is exceptional, and his true nature speaks for itself. Lil is a powerful main character that makes you want to stand up and cheer!

Awakened is a must read for supernatural lovers; Get your copy today!
Happy reading

HALLOWEEN FANTASIES REVIEW

Halloween Fantasies by Katie Salidas


**Halloween Fantasies is for Mature readers only, due to it's sexual content. Must be 18 years or older.**


Never a dull moment with Katie Salidas' writing. Halloween Fantasies is just another taste into her world of vampires. The story is set at the Halloween Fantasy Ball. A party known for its openess for every girl to let loose and indulge in all their wildest dreams and fantasies. Sasha and her friend Angela attend the ball in the hopes of having a good time, Angela as a sexy witch and Sasha as a seductive Vampire Huntress.  Sasha draws the attention of Dante; a sexy creature of the night and a real life vampire, which is just what Sasha has ever dreamed of. Dante sets his eyes on Sasha in the hopes of endulging in his own fantasies, and with the help of his brother Trevor, gets Sasha alone and draws her into his arms for a night filled with fun and neverending pleasure. Sasha is left breathless after a night filled with lust and passion and the hopes of one day seeing her vampire lover again.

A sexy story with a surprising ending, a fantasy played out for every vampire lover out there, a must read for vampire erotica fans. The characters draw you in and the story leaves you wanting more of Dante and Sasha.

Great writing style. Congrats to Katie on another great story.
