The Forgotten Ones
(The Danaan Trilogy, #1)
by Laura Howard

Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.

About the Author
Laura Howard lives in New Hampshire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn’t until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel.

Blog Tour ~ Kissed by Kimberly Loth *Review





Kissed (The Thorn Chronicles)
by Kimberly Loth
Trapped in a dark cult, sixteen-year-old Naomi Aren has lived a quiet, albeit unhappy, life nestled deep in the hills of the Ozarks. With uncut hair, denim skirts, and only roses for friends, Naomi seldom questions why her life is different from other kids at school. Until the day her abusive father, who is also the cult’s leader, announces her wedding. Naomi must marry Dwayne Yerdin, a bully who reeks of sweat and manure and is the only one person who scares her worse than her father.

Then she meets Kai, the mysterious boy who brings her exotic new roses and stolen midnight kisses. Kisses that bring her a supernatural strength she never knew she had. As the big day approaches, Naomi unearths more secrets of about her father’s cult. She learns she has power of her own and while Kai may have awakened that power, Naomi must find a way to use it to escape Dwayne and her father—without destroying herself.

Review:
Kissed was a very quick read. Not because it was short, but because it was a very engaging story. It was also not what I was expecting. The description really only addresses the first third of the book, and where it ends is where the action picks up.

Naomi was  great character. She begins the story as a frightened girl, who is looking for someone to save her. As the story progresses she becomes stronger, willing to do the things she never would have dreamed of doing before. The changes in her though are believable as she adjusts to everything that happens to her and with Kai.

This book was much more than I thought it would be and I am very excited to see where this series goes.

*Kissed Blog Tour* Guest Post by Kimberly Loth



Dream Cast and Theme Songs - A Guest Post by Kimberly Loth

Dreamcasts are so much fun!!! Here is mine along with theme songs for each character.

Meet My main Character: Naomi-Obedient, beautiful, and brave, she’s been oppressed her whole life and she spends most of the book trying to figure out how to overcome that.

Naomi
Dreamcast: Chloe Moretz


Theme song: Are You Gonna Kiss me or Not? by Thompson Square

After Naomi, my favorite characters are her boys. I love love love Love triangles, so of course I wrote one. Will Naomi pick the right one in the end?


Kai
Dreamcast: Matt Lanter
Theme Song: Bed of Roses by Bon Jovi

Naomi's thoughts: "I looked up and saw a very handsome boy smiling down at me. He had coarse brown hair that curled around his ears and it looked like he hadn’t shaved in a few days, but he had a smile to die for."

Puck
Dreamcast: Adam Lambert

Theme Song: If I had you by Adam Lambert

Naomi's thoughts: "In the center of the picture sat a young man. He hugged his knees to his chest with hands that had painted black nails. His entire outfit was nearly all black, from the chunky boots to the half ripped t-shirt. I leaned closer to the picture. He had thick eyeliner and his hair stuck up in four-inch spikes, tipped with violet."

Throughout the book Naomi makes several friends, but her best friend is Ruth.

Ruth
Dreamcast: Molly Quinn
Theme Song: Brave by Sara Bareilles

Naomi's thoughts: "Her heart-shaped face was surrounded by hair that burst from her head like orange corkscrew noodles and her baby blue eyes sparkled with excitement. She looked a little crazy, but then I wasn’t naturally a good judge of character."


Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed my picks. If you’ve read the book, share your ideas. Who would you have picked?
