Attention Fellow Bloggers! Review for Wildflower!

Hello blogging friends! I'm getting ready to launch a blog tour for my YA Romance/Historical Fiction book, Wildflower. I'm trying to reach the masses and would like your help. If your interested in joining the cause please leave your name and blog information in the comment section.

The blog tour is going to be hosted by Mindy @ Books Complete Me toward the beginning of November! Any amount of support would be helpful. Whether you've read and reviewed Wildflower, want to read and review Wildflower (free ecopies will be provided for this, of course) or just simply want to post a blurb and sample chapter, I welcome your participation!

Here is the blurb for the book!

Love can be tragic.

17th Century America:

A Shaman’s daughter falls in love with an Englishman, only her hand has been promised to a warrior.

Tears fall.
Promises are broken.
Rage is unleashed.
Souls are bound or shattered.

Present Day:

Laney Stillwater dreams about a boy she has never met, but she longs for the attention of the ever popular and gorgeous, Jordan Stone.

Time tempts change.
Destined souls awaken.
Love gets a second chance.
Souls are bound or shattered.

What will destiny offer this time?

Reconciliation or more despair?

5 Star Review, Mindy @ Books Complete Me!

This books is amazing. The first few pages of the introduction and I was teary eyed, covered in goosebumps and TOTALLY HOOKED! I read this whole book tonight.

The world that Author Amy Maurer Jones has created is truly magical and amazing. When you take the horrors of high school, mixed with FINALLY talking to the boy of your dreams and mix it with a little Shaman magic...you get an AMAZING story! I am truly in love with this story.

I am SUCH a huge fan of historical fiction (time travel mixed with present day), Native American traditions and love. This book is just filled to the brim with all three and I was instantly hooked. The characters are amazing and so real.

I HIGHLY suggest readying this book. You will not be disappointed!"

I know what I read and loved last summer!

Ah, summer reading! I miss it already. At the close of the summer I had every intention of sharing the list of books I'd read this summer with my followers but I got busy, as usual, and kept putting it off... until now... in October! It's so sad, isn't it? Well, as is often said, better late than never, right? Since I'm posting late I've decided to add the few fantastic reads I've been lucky enough to find the free time to delve into since school started back.

OK, so the list you will find below is not only a compilation of the my summer reading but also the order in which I have ranked them by personal preference. The number one slot is my favorite for the summer. Having said that, I gave all of the books mentioned in this post 5 stars, so, in a way, they are all favorites. I say this because I would highly recommend ALL of them.
