BOOK BLITZ+GIVEAWAY: SIA BY JOSH GRAYSON



AUTHOR: JOSH GRAYSON
PUBLICATION DATE: NOVEMBER 20TH 2013
GENRE: CONTEMPORARY, YOUNG ADULT 

When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Yet after a week of being homeless, she’s reunited with her family. At school, she’s powerful and popular. At home, she’s wealthy beyond her dreams. But she quickly realizes her perfect life is a lie. Her family is falling apart and her friends are snobby, cruel and plastic. Worse yet, she discovers she was the cruelest one. Mortified by her past, she embarks on a journey of redemption and falls for Kyle, the “geek” she once tormented. Yet all the time she wonders if, when her memories return, she’ll become the bully she was before…and if she’ll lose Kyle.

REVIEWS FOR SIA:
“A compelling read full of intrigue, romance, and lots of surprises. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next!” - Jennifer Read Hawthorne, #1 New York Times bestselling author 

A heartwarming, sometimes tear jerking story that reignites one’s faith in humanity. An excellent debut!” – Alexia Purdy, Bestselling author

INTERVIEWING AUTHOR:

If you could fly anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?
Italy, simply because it’s always ranked as having the best food in the world. Its beaches are nice too. I’ve Googled it.
What is your favorite genre to read/write?
Young adult (YA), because those stories carry universal themes we can all relate to, a peek into the lives of characters who are more intriguing, real, and raw.
What is one silly fact about you?
I can mimic Enrique Iglesias’s voice pretty well. I sang “Hero” at a friend’s birthday party once and received an enthusiastic response. Some applauded, others laughed. Overall, though, I felt good about my performance.
 What got you started on your writing journey?
My move from Massachusetts (where I’d lived most of my life) to Virginia. The first year here was difficult. I was alone, depressed, and in completely new surroundings. But it was here in the South that I began seeing all these stories in my head, and that my “writing gene” got activated. So it seems the old saying is true, everything does happens for a reason.
Why do you choose to write clean/sweet romance? 
I don’t choose, per se. I just write whatever I see in my head. And so far, all the romantic parts have been sweet and clean, which is fine with me.
What other things do you have planned with your writing for the rest of the year 2013?
I’m working on another YA novel that Sia fans should enjoy as well. If things go according to plan, I’ll publish that in the summer of 2014.

What is the most rewarding thing about being a writer?
Being able to partake in the wildest adventures imaginable, all without ever leaving your house.
Do you have a favorite comment or question from a reader?
One reviewer said, “It, without a doubt, inspired me to find ways to help others in need. I’m looking into charity work.” I loved hearing that, because that’s exactly what I wanted Sia to do: to motivate others to become their best self, to make positive changes in the world, wherever they are.
 Where do your ideas come from?
I find muses everywhere! In books, magazines, poems, movies, YouTube videos, and so much more. I always try to be receptive. You never know what might trigger your next story.
What inspired you to write Sia?
Initially? Oprah. (laughs). I saw an interview she did on a man with fugue amnesia that impacted me. Fugue amnesia occurs when someone, usually in response to excessive stress, takes off on some unexpected travel. And during the travels, that person assumes either a partial or complete new identity. I found it both fascinating and frightening to think that stress alone can cause the human brain to demand a reset like that. I often wonder why I haven’t gotten fugue amnesia yet!
Is it true you wrote the screenplay adaption as well?
Yes! I wrote it as soon as the book was finished. I’m about to hire a seasoned Hollywood screenwriter to polish it. When it is up to industry standards, we’ll submit it to film companies and cross our fingers. I think Sia would translate wonderfully to film.
If you could sum your main character into five words, what would they be?      Determined. Compassionate. Humble. Kind. Brave.
 Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?
Because I believe it will leave you touched, encouraged, and—of course—entertained.

                                                     MY REVIEW:


A great ending to a great beginning. the author did not fail to keep the story intact and make us wonder that yes, this can be possible. this book is the sequel of zombie cinderella 1 to which i already reviewed. it was a great book and this book is a great ending.
it has violence and reveals the dark side of everyone we ever loved as a child, but it is a must read. if you have read the first book, then i would suggest you to finish it, you wont be disappointed.
in the end, what i want to say is that sometimes one should wake and see the world than just sleep and dream of an inexistant world. i love kevin richey's fairy tales in zombie version and i would suggest one and all to go for it!
happy reading, do comment!

LOVE THAT IS SWEET

when we are kids, we are exposed to  the fairytales that make us think that a prince charming exist, but as you grow up you realise that that was nothing but a sweet dream which is no where closer to reality, atleast i have realised it. i am not saying that i dont believe in true love, infact it will not be wrong if i say that there is a part of me that still believes in true love, what i dont like is the complications that come with a relationship.
the kind of love i believe in is true, something that one doesnt care if the person you love loves you back or not, selfless love. it just happens, and you cant help it and you cant control who the person is thinking of whom makes you blush automatically, you dont get to choose looking at whom your heartbeat stops, some kind of love that doesnt care about who you are, how you look or anything, the person falls for you and you fall for him and thats it. you dont care what will happen, all you want to do is keep loving that person, even if the person cant give it back to you.
this is the brother sister duo, of sakura and toya. you will love them too!
that kind of love stories make me happy, make me attracted. however sadly i see very less books with that thing. 1st book was TALE OF 2 CITIES, a great classic by charles dickens, and there is this manga and anime CARD CAPTOR SAKURA. if you have not checked it out yet, please do it, you wont be disappointed.I will leave the link below to that both manga and series.(it is available in both english dubbed and subbed version but i will suggest you to go for english subbed, it has a better story than the english dubbed version which has cut so many scenes of cute love story!). That manga and anime has everything demanded. action, love, crushes, family relationships, how one should behave with their parents and what not. The love story that this  manga depicts is beautiful. it is young but serious love. i am telling you, go for it, you will see what it is! another essential part of it is the relationship between yukito and his best friend toya, i know you will love it too!
more description might become spoilers, so i leave it to you!
this picture is of sakura and syaoran, this is when sakura cries because she confesses to someone else and he declines, syaoran knowing that sakura loves someone else, keeps loving her and even tries to console her!

now for the links
for the manga (if you are big at reading!):http://www.mangareader.net/185-12345-1/card-captor-sakura/chapter-1.html

and the series, that i highly recommend( japanese with english sub): http://www.animeseason.com/card-captor-sakura/

LETS GET IT RE-STARTED

since i had that problem that i had, i couldnt read any book what so ever, and so, i am restarting it yet again. i have bought 3 best sellers by AMISH TRIPATHY
they are all fiction, entitled: IMMORTALS OF MELUHA, SECRETS OF NAGAS AND OATH OF VAYUPUTRAS.


IMMORTALS OF MELUHA:
it is the 1st part which i just started! it is very interesting so far! and i am just loving it!

SECRETS OF NAGAS:
not started looking forward

OATH OF VAYUPUTRAS
it was once a bestseller, beating great authors so, i am very much looking forward to it!

NO TOPIC.

i have been inactive for like 2 months now, its not because i quit blogging or that i ever decided to do so. something unexpected happened, and it was hard for me to continue blogging. i can say that circumstances forced me to stop blogging and start working hard in real life. I failed my maths paper and had to give a re- exam to pass it. My parents were very disappointed and i was heartbroken to know that. i dont know why it happened or how it happened, what i know is that it happened and  i had to get out of the situation. i was a very good student but i think i went wrong somewhere and ended up like this. guess i forgot that there was life outside of books as well. well, i had a month to prepare and retake my exam and i did and got 95 out of 100 marks this time. i am very happy that i did. it was my last school year so i had to worry about my admissions too. that was the sole reason why i left or i can say took a break from blogging and even reading books and i am very disappointed on myself. i am sorry for what this caused to the people who trusted me and gave me their books, i am extremely sorry, but now i am back to business and i will try my best to finish up all the books due on me as soon as humanly possible! good day!

Series: Fevered Souls, #1
Publication date: April 22nd 2013 Genre: NA Paranormal       
 




Synopsis:
After I left for college, I thought I’d never see Eden again. But I found myself headed back four years later, destitute and unable to find a job anywhere else. Still, I was adamant nothing would keep me there for long.

Then I met the intoxicating Dax Allard. Copper-colored eyes, skin that emanated an exceptional heat, and a strange “dog” at his side… I was drunk on him.

But Dax’s past was darker than mine, teeming with ancient secrets. Falling for him could cost me my life.

I had two choices: walk away or deal with the perilous consequences.

It was no choice at all.

This is the first episode of a serial novel, and runs around 50 pages or 12,000 words.

Where Did the Idea for Possession Come From?
The idea for Possession came to me really atypically. Usually I think of a character—generally female—and know, instantly, a lot about her personality. But with Possession, I actually had this ravenous need to read about a male demon character. I’d never read a book about a character exactly like the one in my h
