Black, White and Read Presents a Review of The Red Road by Jenni Wiltz with Giveaway

The Red Road
The Red Road by Jenni Wiltz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am having a hard time writing this review without spoilers but I am going to try very hard to accomplish just that. Be warned, I may not succeed so proceed with reading at your own risk.

Gang wars are real and frightening and something people who don’t have to live with it prefer not to think about. I am glad to see a young adult novel that faces something real for once. There tends to be a school of thought that wants to shield young people from this kind of reality. Ms. Wiltz is not among them.

Black, White and Read Presents: Barbara Pietron, YA Author – An Interview and Awesome Giveaway

BP BannerI have the pleasure of hosting on a blog tour for this exciting YA author. In case you don’t know who Barbara Pietron is:

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved books. Many of my most vivid memories are book-related; like the thrill of my first library card, being blown away by Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot when I was thirteen, riding my bike to the library until I finally got a car, and the agony of waiting for semester break in college to read a novel (because if I started a book, my homework suffered!). I also like listening to alternative rock, sewing, gardening, and camping. I’m a mom, a cancer survivor, and a former automotive corporate employee, now working in a library.

Authors are Rockstars! Just Another Rabid Reader Interviews AMANDA HOCKING!!!!!! (and a surprise giveawway!)

Authors Are Rockstars


Oh.  My.  Gosh!  I was so excited to sign up to be a part of this, and then even more excited to get chosen for my first choice, Amanda Hocking.  I am not going to lie.  I had major, complete and total fangirl moments many days since receiving the email.  It happens that I received a copy of Lullaby in the mail the same day as I got this email, and my copy of Lullaby came signed from The Book Depository.  Ask my husband, I was dorked out for the whole day.
