To celebrate I am going to do the Harry Potter Spells Tag created by Kimberly Faye Reads it is such an awesome tag. Kimberly has kindly let anyone who wants to do the tag use the awesome spell scrolls she made. There is 18 questions but I only picked a handful to answer.

#Giveaway Time Warper: Fated byPeggy Martinez Blitz

Time Warper: Fated by Peggy Martinez 
(A Sage Hannigan Novel, #1)
Published by: Clean Teen Publishing
Publication date: October 6th 2015
Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult


Eighteen-year-old Sage Hannigan wants to get back to her own time, preferably one that hasn’t been destroyed by an underworld plot brewing in Edwardian-era South Carolina. How hard can it be?

All she has to do is:

1. Learn to use newly acquired warping skills to bend time to her will.
2. Take out a few rogue vampires.
3. Join an ancient secret society.
4. Figure out who is putting the time stream in jeopardy.
5. Find and maim whoever invented the corset.


Today I woke up a hundred years younger. That’s a hard thing to accomplish since I’m only eighteen years old. I’d like to think that if I fudge up and accidently come across one of my ancestors I won’t somehow screw up the time stream and… then what? Would I ever be born? Would I wake up one day in this century and just cease to exist? Sheesh… that would probably top my worst-days-ever list.

I should probably back up and begin my story from yesterday… or would it still be considered yesterday when my yesterday takes place a hundred years from now?

See? So confusing!

So let me start over from the beginning, from the day I woke up a normal teenager and went to bed a… time warper. 

Sage never asked to be chosen by the Druid Priestess, Amerach, to become a Warper, and she never asked to have the future hanging on her shoulders or to warp a hundred years into the past. She certainly never asked to meet Dr. Aldwin Blake, who would make her question her desire to get back to her own time. But if she fails her mission, people will die, history will change, and the present she wishes to return to will be no more.


Peggy Martinez is a full time Author who has over a dozen published works, including the Time Warper Series, the State of Decay Trilogy, the Contradiction Series, the Reapers Grimm Series, her middle grade Super Zero Series, and various novellas and serials.

When not writing, Peggy can be found homeschooling her teen son and four daughters. You may also find her packaging hundreds of boxes for her monthly box subscription business she founded just for readers! (Lit-Cube) She could also be spotted reading, making soap, dabbling in aromatherapy, watching gangster movies, prepping for the zombie apocalypse, or downing insane amounts of Twizzlers and Kazoozles. Oh yeah... and day dreaming about owning a small homestead or taking a dream vacation to Greece, Scotland, & Ireland. She could totally be doing that.

Celebrate Twilight by Stephanie Meyer's 10th Birthday #Twilight10 #Giveaway

You read that title correctly. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer (the book) is celebrating its 10th Birthday. 10th. Guys how is this book ten! I read the book in 2008 before seeing the movie. So I jumped on the hype band wagon a few years after the book was first released. But I am so happy I jumped on the bandwagon then. I love the Twilight books and have read them many times. Jumping on the bandwagon just before the first movie release let me join and follow the making of the rest of the movies and it meant I had all the books on hand to read. No book release wait for me!

This was the first series of books and movies I first totally fangirled over to a crazy level. I fangirled so much I was always excited to see how filming was on site, all the sightings of the actors and just being a typical fan girl. I even had a Facebook page dedicated to all things Taylor Lautner. It wasn't just me. My sister and me where both obsessed. She was Team Edward and I was Team Jacob. We even made a video arguing ... I meant discussing who was best. Below is the embarrassing video for your entertainment and yes I was 22 years old a grown adult, don't judge LOL 

Team Jacob VS Team Edward 2010

I am so thankful to have went on this fun Twilight Journey with my sister and I am thankful to have had the twi-hard experience. I really can't believe Twilight is 10 years. It's a book that not everyone loves but everyone knows about it. My mum even knows so much about it because all me and my sister used to do was talk about it. Twilight will always be in my book heart. A series that made me fall in love even more with YA.

Did you have a "Twilight Journey"? Where you Team Jacob or Team Edward? Let me know all your Twilight thoughts below.

My sister has also done a post celebrating Twilight's birthday, you can check it out here


To celebrate Twilight's 10 Birthday a New edition of Twilight is being released with bonus material. Me and my sister have partnered up to host a giveaway of one copy of the new edition open to anyone who can receive books from the Book Depository. GIVEAWAY POLICY

A-Z Book Survey

This survey was created by Perpetual Page Turner back in 2013 and it's a survey I had fun doing. I recently seen the survey on Books Around The World.

Author you've read most books from- Charlaine Harris- I've read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books which is 13, the companion novel and all the shorts.

Best sequel ever- The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey - The 5th Wave was awesome but the sequel The Infinite Sea was amazing and by passed it. It's the middle book in a trilogy and it didn't suffer from middle book syndrome.

Currently Reading- Bloodlines by Richelle Mead 

Drink of choice while reading- Pepsi Max, it's what I drink most 

E reader or physical book- Physical book- I caved in and got a kindle last Christmas but I just can't get into using it. I think am always going to be a physical girl.

Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school- Cricket from Lola and the boy next door by Stephanie Perkins. He was the first name that came to mind. He's quirky, cute, smart and unique.

Glad you gave the book a chance- Undertow by Michael W Buckley- It talked about mermaids on the synopsis and I don't like mermaids. Mermaids and fairies are creatures I don't get on with but Undertow, OMG, it's incredible, it doesn't have your typical mermaids. A Must read!

Hidden Book Gem- A Little In Love by Susan Fletcher- This is always a book I mention as a hidden gem. It's a beautiful story and heart breaking. A gem among books!

Important moment in your reading life- I think it would be when I started blogging it introduced me to a whole world of different genres and authors and gave me a new appreciation for reading.

Just finished- Emmy and Oliver by Robin Benway

Kind of books you won't read- I won't read horror as I have a wild imagination and easily scare myself. Apart from that am pretty much up for reading anything. 

Longest book you've read- After We Fell by Anna Todd (After #3) 836 pages- am not intimated by big books, I tend to read long books.

Major Book Hangover because of- All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven- This book killed me but in an amazing way. I think am still feeling the hangover 10 months later.

Number of bookcases you own- Two- I still live at home with my mum and I have a box room, it's so tiny so I have a baby bookcase and a tall thin bookcase. The rest are boxed to save space.

One book you have read multiple times- I have read many books multiple times. Am a 're reader. I think I have read the Sookie Stackhouse Books the most. 

Preferred place to read- My room :)

Quote that inspires you/ gives you all the feels from a book you've read- 

"I was alive. I burned brightly.'" All The Bright Places- Jennifer Niven

Reading Regret- I don't think I have any regrets, apart from maybe not having read some books that I really need/ want to read.

Series you started and need to finish- LOTS - but in particular The House Of Night Series by P.C and Kristin Cast, as am currently on a role with them.

Three of your all time faves- 
  1. All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness
  2. Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
  3. Where Rainbows End by Cecilia Ahern

Unapologetic fan girl for- I fan girl about a lot of book guys. Some of my previous fan girl guys-

  • Jacob- Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer
  • Ron- Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
  • Hardin- After Series by Anna Todd
  • Christian Grey- 50 Shades of grey by E.L.James

Very excited for the release more than all the others- The Illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone *3 days*

Worst bookish habit- Dog earing my books

X marks the spot- start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book- Fifty Shades Of Grey by E.L.James

Your latest book purchase- The Golden Lily, The Indigo Spell and Sliver Shadows by Richelle Mead

Zzz- snatcher book- last book that kept you up way late- This Man Trilogy by Jodi Ellen Malpas
