This year is flying by! It’s officially fall in East TN and that means cooler weather and football, my two very favorite things 😀 Last month was filled with some great reads and busy mom things as potty training was first on my mind. What were you up to this month?
Favorite September ReadOf River and Raynn - The Catalyst by Rebecca Ethington
Series: Of River and Raynn #1
Published by Imdalind Press on 2014-09-12
Length: 370 pages
Reviewing eARC from Author
They found me when I was five; a little girl sitting on a bench in Grand Central Station, soaking wet, asking about the rain.
I remembered nothing about how I got there, or who my parents were. I couldn’t even remember my name. I was tagged, labeled and doomed to cycle through state care for the next twelve years; moving from one family to another. They all rejected me as the dreams began to come, the memories began to return, and things around me began to explode.
Now my mind is full of a world of shadows, things that my heart pleads with me to be true, that I hope are only fantasy. That the disturbing past I see is not mine.
When I sleep I hear whispers of magic, and of evil queens, and a world that exists alongside our own. Things that could never be. But, there is one thing I know to be true. That there was a boy who was torn from me. A boy that I know means more to me than a brother, or than a lover. But what he is to me, I am not sure. I hear him cry for me in my dreams, I hear people call him The Catalyst.
I know I need to find him.
I wouldn’t have tried, if I would have known that finding River, would have made all my dreams turn into a haunting reality.
I love everything by Rebecca Ethington and I was so excited to receive The Catalyst for review. Also I was not disappointed. It was fantastic! If you haven’t read it yet, if you like fantasy mixed with the real world, or if you are just looking for a good read, I highly suggest you go check it out!
Favorite September Quote
Being in love with someone was supposed to be a sweet and tender release. However, being in love with your best friend, who didn’t interpret those feelings in the same way, became a violently brutal ache.

Interviews in September
Coming up in October
Well it’s been 8 months since I started this blogging journey and I have to say, I am loving it! It’s so much fun getting to interact with the authors and in some cases the characters of my favorite books. In October I have several interviews coming your way, including Ashley C. Harris and Tamara A. Lowery. Here’s a sneak peek of the books I’ll be reviewing this month…
What are you looking forward to in October?
I’m looking forward to Halloween. My little man has decided to be a Jedi, and as he is too small for the costumes out there, I’m scouring Pinterest in search of ideas to make him one. Also of course the whole family is looking forward to football (Go Vols! #GBO) 😉 And the bookworm in me is excited to read some great new books and some spooky reads as well! What are you reading in October?
