Website Wonders

29 Aug

Announcements:

Before we get into August’s Website Wonders, I wanted to thank two lovely reviewers for sharing their thoughts on Take Me Tomorrow and Seconds Before Sunrise, book 2 of The Timely Death Trilogy.

Bookish Lover Reviews started us off by reviewing Take Me Tomorrow, “If you liked Delirium series and Divergent, this is something in between. It has great action with lot of twists and a little bit of romance but enough to fall in love with story even more. I recommend it to everyone. Please pick it up, because this book deserves bigger audience.” The full review gets into detail about romance and action.

Tranquil Dreams posted their thoughts on the paranormal romance, Seconds Before Sunrise, “There is nothing better than a novel that delivers a believable story with an alternate reality/fantasy world intertwined and while giving us a love story also gets us to wonder what happens next. Thats what Seconds Before Sunrise is.” But she gets more into detail about the personal struggles Eric and Jessica have to face in her full review.

If you’re interested in reading either of these novels, here are the Amazon links to Take Me Tomorrow and Seconds Before Sunrise, book 2 of The Timely Death Trilogy. Be sure to let me know about your review. If you want me to share it, I would be more than happy to. Comment here or send me an email at shannonathompson@aol.com.

Website Wonders:

Every month, I share all of the websites I come across that I find helpful, humorous, or just awesome. Below, you’ll find all of August’s Website Wonders categorized as so: Reading, Writing, Inspiration Art and Life, and For Fun. Between each category is a photo. If you enjoy these websites, be sure to like my Facebook page because I share even more websites and photos like this there.

    Ah, thank you… now I have a list of things to explore while procrastinating on my writing/editing this weekend. 🙂 Or..no.. wait, I’m going to be productive this weekend… I now have a list of things to explore during my breaks this week? Either way, thanks for sharing — and congrats on the ongoing reviews — feeling like I should flesh mine out and post it at some point, or maybe do a multi-book-review post at some point with all the short-reviews I seem to have started writing 🙂

      When do you think I find these? ;] Lots of little inspirational breaks keeps the creativity going. Procrastinating is debatable. lol Thank you for the congrats! I hope you enjoy the links, and I think your multi-book review idea sounds really neat.
