Emerald Talisman Kindle Free & Everblue Tour wrap up...

What a whirlwind this past week has been. This post was supposed to happen days ago, along with another laundry list of things to do.

Anyway... we went camping this past weekend and drove through Placerville, CA on the way. We saw this sign and I swooned! I'm going in the next time I'm in town.

My Everblue tour is over.... sniff. I enjoyed every minute of it and want to thank Eleni from the bottom of my heart for hosting and to all the wonderful bloggers who took time out of their busy lives to read and write such eloquent reviews. I am blessed! Muahh!

These are the last of the reviews:

September 14 - Jessica - Hopeless Bibliophile = Review
"Pandos takes a lore that we all know, and puts her own delicious spin on it. Hold on, you're in for a ride."
September 7 - Nicole - Books Complete Me = Review
"WOW! I loved this book. ... Ashlyn wants her life to change, while Fin wants his to stay the same - that is the best way to describe this book!"

September 8 - Anna Tee - The Bursting Bookshelf = Review
"For being so enjoyable and gripping, I give Everblue a 5/5 without question."

September 9 - Evie - Bookish = Review + Giveaway
"Deliciously sweet and dangerously seductive, Everblue by Brenda Pandos is an absolutely and indisputably fantabulous beginning to a new awesome Young Adult series that will win you over in a blink of an eye!"

September 9 - Alyssa - The Book Blog Experience = Review 
"I feel like even though mermaids aren’t real that readers can relate to the characters and the book. This book will make you angry, happy and cringing..."

And it's ALWAYS fun to find mystery reviews... this made me smile:

Shawna graciously put this on GR 
"There was just enough detail to let you picture it vividly in your mind while taking you hostage with her beautiful word usage. From page to page I kept getting more enthralled into this book. It was more than just the amazing story that held my attention, it was also the writing. "

Oh, and if you didn't know, The Emerald Talisman is free right now on Kindle. And, it's ranked #8 in free books right now. Squee! :) Enjoy a treat on me if you've been wanting to read it!

Hugs, Brenda

Week 3 - #everblue blog tour

This has been yet another fun and exciting week. Thank you for your questions, Inga, Yara, and Valia! More questions will be answered next week from bloggers! Stay tuned.

August 29 - Inga - Me and Reading = Review
"It was a book which simply blows you away to a fanciful and magical world! When I turned the last page, I cried, because the ending of the book was beautiful and I was totally frustrated – because I wanted more!"

August 30 - Cynthia - Book Reader Addicts = Review
"The story made me laugh, hold my breathe, and made me upset. I got so emotionally involved that my husband thought I was going crazy. "

September 1 - Heather - Nightly Reading = Review
"Brenda Pandos has done it again! She has created a storyline that has completely sucked me in! The Mer Tales series is unlike any other that I have read and I was engrossed from the first pages."

September 2 - Lauren - Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf = Review + Giveaway
"Unique and enjoyable, Everblue is well worth a read! However, that ending? Crazy! I need the sequel ASAP."

Others in the wild:

Garrett at The Mer Blog (how appropriate is THAT?):  Review
"Everblue by Brenda Pandos has such an addicting, mesmerizing quality to it. I would open the book up, telling myself I would only read one - maybe two - chapters, only to look down at the page and see I've read over 100 pages..."

Amy at Amy's Book Den: Review
"This has become my top favorite mermaid story of this summer. Just when I thought I´d give up on them, in comes Everblue and sweeps me away with its amazingly wrought world, creative mer-cursing, and captivating plot."

Thanks everyone for taking the time to write up reviews for your readers!

Hugs, Brenda
