*2013 Paranormal Reading Challenge*

Welcome to the 2013 Paranormal Reading Challenge hosted by Megan Likes Books and Auntie Spinelli Reads! I received an email from one of the blogs I follow that featured this reading challenge in her blog post.I thought since I love YA paranormal books that this would be a great reading challenge to participate in. So  if you have a blog, love reading, and love paranormal books join me in this awesome reading challenge here.

1. This challenge runs from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013.
2. You must have a blog to able to participate, since reviews must be added to the linky.
3. When you sign up with the linky, please put the link to your post about joining the Paranormal Reading Challenge.
4. You're welcome to list your books beforehand or just add as you go.
5. Sign-ups are open until December 1, 2013
6. At the beginning of each month, I will post a kick-start post, each month featuring a different category of paranormal creature. This post will also include a linky to include your reviews from that month.
7. Each review you link will qualify you for an entry into the monthy giveaway and if your review includes the feature paranormal creature of that month, you get a bonus entry.
8. Each book can only count for one category, even if it contains more than one paranormal creature. For example, Twilight contains both vampires and werewolves, but you can't use it for both the vampires and werewolves/shifters categories.

We were asked to reflect in our blessings and share something.I am first and foremost thankful for my family and friends.I have to kids that I am thankful for,even though they sometimes drive me crazy.I am thankful for my close friends who are more like family to me,I am blessed to have them.I am thankful for my online friends and blog followers. And since it is called INDIEgiving I thought I would share how thankful I am for my author friends.I had been thinking about how thankful I was for them before I even joined the blogfest.I have few indie authors that I have become close friends with online.They take the time to talk to me when I need a friend,give me advice,and pray for me.I am honored to have them in my life.I hope one day we will have chance to meet.

*FLUTTER Blog Tour*

As Sara and Adan struggle to overcome their own separate battles -
There is a far more determined evil that is stalking the shadows and waiting to annihilate them both.
Sara will figure out that not everything is what it seems and knowing what she can and can not trust will be the key to finding out the truth of what happened to her, the reason why she was buried alive and who she really is…

Sara and Adan will discover  why she was the reason he existed and why he would be the reason she survived & together they will fight to change the rules and rewrite their fate.
Discover the Meaning,
Discover the Secret,

Character Bios:

                                 Sara Alejandra Marquez
The Spanish beauty that attracts the attention of everyone with her dark, mesmerizing, shimmery, skin, cascading midnight black hair, and wild hazel eyes.
At 17, her problems should be minimal, but Sara finds nothing insignificant about being buried alive or the Fluttering sensation coursing just beneath her skin, coming to life every time she is around the mysterious boy. Sara can’t fight the attraction she has to Adan or the maddening effects he has on her. With the constant fighting out home with her uncle, Andres, she takes refuge in the arms of the wrong guy.
As Sara searches for answers, she finds the more time she spends with Adan, the more she realizes he might not be as mysterious as she thinks.
“The silkiness of his voice was a torturous caress
that I was willing to endure for the rest of my life.” – Sara 

Adan’s mission to find Sara has finally begun -
 It seemed simple: bring her back to the enchanted world that lives, breathes and survives because of her, but he quickly finds himself faced with an entirely new challenge. Immediately, Adan realizes that staying unknown to Sara is a task he will fail before he even begins; the pull to her is far too strong to refuse, and being with her will defy the very reason he existed. He was the key to her survival and loving her was not part of the path that he had been born to follow. Can he find it in himself too resist the urge to be with her and follow through with their destiny or will he destroy everything that had been left to Sara to protect and defend -
And the kingdom she is unaware she rules…

Andres Delgado

6 feet tall, dark and very dedicated to his responsibility and those responsibility just got a lot hard now that Sara knows something just isn’t right with her life. Suspicious and angry over everything Andres says, he must learn to live with Sara’s cold shoulder.
               As Sara’s Watcher, Andres wants nothing more than to keep her safe and young at least until her birthday. He knows that is coming fast he will have to tell Sara the truth about everything: Who she is, what she will have to do and more importantly – what she is. 

Melissa Andrea
I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.
               Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter’s will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado –but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.
4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5)

Okay guys! To make the giveaway fair for everyone, we will be checking the entries to make sure
everyone is entering correctly. If we do find someone who hasn't followed through with the entry, we will pull you from the giveaway.
So please, please make sure you've done each entry!
