Chase Tinker & The House of Magic BOOK REVIEW

Malia Ann Haberman’s Chase Tinker and The House of Magic

4 1/2 out of 5 read rating  A MUST READ MAGICAL BOOK

BOOK BLURB:

In Chase Tinker’s world, magic, lies and secrets can be a lethal combination…

Chase Tinker has the power to move things with his mind. His brother Andy can stop time. The thing is, they have no idea where these crazy abilities could’ve possible come from, and, are totally clueless on how to control them. Chase wants desperately to talk to his dad about it, but Benjamin Tinker has disappeared without a word.

It’s a huge shock to Chase and Andy when one day a grandfather they thought to be long dead arrives at their door. He invites them to come spend the summer with him and their cousin Janie on a remote island in an out-of-this-world house where fantastic magic can be found in practically every room, stairway and corridor. Chase can’t believe his dad has been lying and keeping so many important things from his sons.

Not long after the boys’ arrival at Grandfather’s house, their aunt, who has been on a mission to find their missing dad, turns up, hurt, sick—and alone. Now three of the biggest questions in their minds are: where in the world is their dad? And how will they find him? Or, is he…dead? It doesn’t help matters when Chase’s despicable cousin James arrives and turns everything upside down, even putting Chase’s life in mortal danger.

As he spends more time in the house, Chase begins to realize that, not only has their dad been keeping things from them, but Grandfather seems to be keeping several secrets of his own and Chase is bound and determined to find out just what those secrets are.

Chase soon finds out that all their magic is controlled by a strange, incredibly powerful relic hidden in the attic, and if anything happens to this relic every bit of Tinker magic will be lost forever. And, if this isn’t enough to worry about, the Tinkers are also facing a terrifying and powerful enemy that is determined to destroy the Tinkers and possess all their magic, their house and their Relic. Now Chase, along with Andy, Janie and their good friend Persephone, must find a way to stop these evil beings in order to save, not only themselves, but everyone else on the planet.

Dead Girl by B.C. Johnson BOOK REVIEW

4 out of 5 read rating for Dead Girl by B.C. Johnson

BOOK BLURB :

Dead is such a strong word…

Fifteen-year old Lucy Day falls between the gears in the machinery of the afterlife. She is murdered while on her first date, but awakens a day later, completely solid and completely whole. She has no hunger for brains, blood, or haunting, so she crosses “zombie,” “vampire,” and “ghost” off her list of re-life possibilities. But figuring out what she is becomes the least of her worries when Abraham, Lucy’s personal Grim Reaper, begins dogging her, dead-set on righting the error that dropped her back into the spongy flesh of a living girl.

Lucy must put her mangled life back together, escape re-death, and learn to control her burgeoning psychic powers while staying one step ahead of Abraham. But when she learns the devastating price of coming back from the dead, Lucy is forced to make the hardest decision of her re-life—a decision that could save her loved ones…or kill them.

Now Playing: SON!X

For my second Now Playing review I am reviewing an artist that goes by SON!X. I found SON!X on Reverbnation.com in my local section. As a resident of Northern Virgina artists from D.C. are close to me. SON!X is a different type of artist that could have his on category. I say this because first I listened to “Senses” and I thought yes, this is pop and dance, but then I listened to “Coffee (That Girl)” and I thought this sounds a little more soul. Not soul like gospel, but soul like letting your soul out in a soft compassionate way that R&B does. I might also think that he is soulful because I feel like a soul was put into his music. Sung from the heart is the easiest way to say it. “Senses” is a sassy and seductive song. I can envision a music video with a hot chick and a hot dude feeling attracted to each other and a little slow motion. Makes me want to get up and dance slow and move my hips like a belly dancer. Then, “My Lov” had me bouncing my shoulders when the song started. The beat, the lyrics, the voice just had me going. I can’t sing like him, but this song will have you trying your best. SON!X can be placed with  Michael Jackson and Prince, people who he was influenced by, although his music is very unique. SON!X’s voice is smooth and different. His songs are upbeat and fun. Whether you’re looking for something sassy, fun, unique or just want to dance SON!X should be on the list of artist you check out.
