INTERVIEW - AIMEE CARTER - GODESS INTERRUPTED BLOG TOUR

If you could be a God, which one would you be and why? 
 Every time someone asks me this, my answer changes. Right now I’d have to go with Athena. She’s strong, brilliant, and independent, and you can’t beat that. Then again, seeing the Underworld would be pretty great, and who wouldn’t want to be Aphrodite for a day?

Do you see yourself, or anyone you know in your characters? 
 I’m very, very careful about not basing characters off of people I know or myself. For one, if you write someone into a book, you lose a great deal of creative freedom with that character. And second, it opens you up to all sorts of lawsuits (for writing someone in) or very personal hurt (when writing yourself in, and people don’t like that character). Much easier to create your own characters.

Do your family and friends ever try to find themselves in the characters? 
I’m not sure – you’d have to ask them!

Do you have a writing ritual? 
Butt in chair, internet off, fingers on keyboard. I try to be flexible about how,…

THE WITCH OF TURLINGHAM ACADEMY - ELLIE BOSWELL - REVIEW

Book: The witch of Turlingham Academy
Author: Ellie Boswell
Publisher: ATOM
ISBN: 9781907410956
Rating: B

It's not easy being the only day girl at Turlingham Academy: Sophie misses out on all the midnight feasts and late night gossip. And when new girl Katy turns up it feels like she's bewitching all of Sophie's friends! Katy's no witch, but there is a witch at Turlingham. Katy comes from a long line of witch hunters whose job is to stop evil magic. Sophie is going to help her - anything to get Katy out of her life and get things back to normal. But what she discovers means nothing will ever be normal again!


I have to admit I had my doubts about this before I read it but I was pleasantly surprised. I actually really enjoyed it, a lot! In fact it reminded of the The Worst Witch (a past-time favourite) but more modernised which is always nice to have. The book was quick, snappy, fast paced and pet you interested the whole way through. Definitely a feel-good book. It's one …

Rating: A+


Savannah Colbert has never known why she’s so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It’s as if he’s a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she’s destined to fail. For years, Tristan has been forbidden to even speak to Savannah Colbert. Then Savannah disappears from school for a week and comes back... different, and suddenly he can’t stay away. Boys seem intoxicated just from looking at her. His own family becomes stricter than ever. And Tristan has to fight his own urge to protect her, to be near her no matter the consequences...

This book was actually really good. It…

Rating: A+


Zara is back from Valhalla after successfully rescuing Nick. Bedford needs their best warrior now more than ever, as the evil pixie regime is causing mass destruction and chaos everywhere. Though Nick's job is clear, Zara's role is a lot more uncertain. She's not just fighting for her friends - she's also a pixie queen. And to align her team of pixies with the humans she loves so much will not be as easy as she hopes. Especially since she can't even reconcile her growing feelings for her pixie king ...


This is definitely the way to Finish a series. I can most honestly say I adored this book to the most. I have loved this series from the beginning, as it is such a magical and different unique story and this is the way to send Zara and her friends off. The book had absolutely you want in a final book packed into it! It was filled with action, love, twists, turn and magic. It kept you glu…
