Survival Instinct by Janie Crouch

AN EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT!

Boekie's Book Reviews has some exciting news: we have been chosen to become a member of Paper Lantern Lit's Preferred Bloggers Program! Paper Lantern Lit is a different kind of literary agency. Instead of reading through piles of submissions, the architects of PLL develop stories in-house and then find authors to write them. We are so excited about the opportunity to review Paper Lantern Lit's books, and what better way to share that excitement with you than by telling you about some PLL titles we've already read and loved?

Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill takes readers on a trip to England. Readers get to experience the places that can be found in tour guides and the places not all all tourists--not all natives--know to go looking for. Can you think of a better place for a romance to begin? Julia might be just a bit obsessive-compulsive, but she's about to break some rules and live a little. And maybe get the guy she's always fantasized about--or the guy she never thought she'd want. Julia's narration will have you laughing along with her as she breaks out of her shell. Meant to Be is the perfect read for those of you who have that itch to travel and can't help thinking about all those potential lovers you'll meet when you're away.

Venom by Fiona Paul takes readers on a journey back in time to the gorgeous city of Venice to a time of elegant gowns, wealth, and beauty. There we meet Cassandra Caravello, who's about to embark on her own journey of mystery, self-discovery, and love. The story is set during the 17th century and Fiona Paul does an amazing job at really bringing readers there with the amount of the detail that she weaves into her story. And who could resist, the love interest in the story, the handsome and mysterious Falco? Who doesn't love handsome artsy guys? I know I do. ;) Venom is the perfect read for those looking for a little bit of mystery, romance, and adventure.

Fury by Elizabeth Miles is one of those books that sucks readers in and gets them with its intense creepiness...It's told in alternating perspectives from two characters, Emily and Chase.The concept of karma (you get what you give) is definitely played with throughout this story. One of the best things about this book is that readers are dealing with flawed characters. It's like watching a mini soap opera unfold and Elizabeth Miles gives you the perfect setting - winter. With temperatures dropping and heavy snow falling, readers really start to get the sense that something chilling is about to happen. Fury is great for readers who love paranormal stories with a twist. There's nothing like this one.
