The Acropolis (Acropolis Series)

Book Blurb:

"We have a new assignment for you, Mr. Reinhardt."


These words are not comforting to me. At eighteen, I am a gargoyle who has been demoted because I broke the rules. Now I have a new mission, a new mark to protect. But I don't expect Emma Chase. I don't expect to question my own race. I don't expect to care for my own mark. And I am not prepared for what I find at The Acropolis. 

Warning: Due to language, this book is suggested for Young Adults 16+


My Thoughts:
The Acropolis is the first installment of the Acropolis Series by R.K. Ryals. This is actually a spin-off series of The Redemption Series by the same author. If you've been reading my past few posts, you'll know how much I loved The Redemption Series! I am absolutely a fan of it! And because of that I have very high expectations for The Acropolis. I must sa…

Book Blurb:

Ima would give anything to escape The Dome and learn what’s beyond its barriers, but the Chicago government has kept all its citizens on lockdown ever since the Scorched Years left most of the world a desert wasteland. 
When a mysterious group of hooded figures enters the city unexpectedly, Ima uncovers a plot to destroy The Dome and is given the choice between escaping to a new, dangerous city or staying behind and fighting a battle she can never win.
My Thoughts:

Socialpunk is the first work of Ms. Monica Leonelle I've ever read and I must say that I had a very nice time reading this. Socialpunk is a book that is full of excitement and futuristic ideas that is pretty much surprising.

The plot of the book was very unique. I must admit that I'm not good with Sci-fi Futuristic fictions. I rarely enjoy them bec…

Author Interview: Monica Leonelle (Socialpunk #1)

Image
Hi my loves! We have this beautiful author, Ms. Monica Leonelle  here in my blog! She is the author of Socialpunk Book Series. She's going to answer our questions! Now let's get this started, shall we?!



Can you please tell me about yourself. Something that's not written in your author bio.
I'm glad you mentioned something that's not written in my author bio, because I tend to copy + paste that everywhere. So, let's see. I have plain white walls everywhere in my apartment. My bedroom is basically a bed and two nightstands. People think it's a little nutty looking, like an asylum... but I just haven't taken time to decorate my apartment. I've lived here nearly two years now, so I figure, why spend the money? Also, I didn't have a couch for over a year... I sat on the floor to eat, watch TV, write... basically I lived on my carpet.Anyway, obviously I, like Ima, need some computers hooked into my brain so that someone decorates my walls for me. :)

Book Blurb:


Rhodes Scholar Gloria Zimmerman has come to Oxford University to study feminist poetry. Yet the rigors of academia pale in comparison to her untreated Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, fueled by her overachieving parents and manifested in a deathly aversion to germs and human contact. Her next-door neighbor (who is also, to her mortification, her loomate) is Henry Young, the appealing but underachieving English music student. Still mourning the death of his supportive mother while enduring the mockery of his disapproving and merciless father, Henry is haunted by the unexpectedly serious ramifications of a reckless and tragic youth. Gloria and Henry's relationship evolves from a shared obsession with Van Morrison's music into a desire to fill the gaps in each othe…

Book Excerpt: Excerpt #1: Prologue After playing God for six years with the world he created, he couldn’t control any of his subjects, none at all. Over the years, he had watched them evolve and become the sum of their own choices rather than the sum of his; and for that, he regretted ever giving them life.
A small, blinking red light from just inside his eyelid reminded him of the news they sent him earlier that morning. The company had cancelled his funding and would shut down his project within three months. According to them…
