#OMKindle TBR March 28 - April 4, featuring books by: E.M. McIntyre, B.A. Keating, and Elizabeth Fisher

Last week was a great week for me to read and write. After this week I will only have three more books to read before I can dive into the books that I promised reviews for by May, or June. The closer I get to this goal, the more motivated I am to finish up these overdue reviews.

I have some great news regarding On My Kindle's mobile app! It is available for Android devices now, and it has been submitted to Apple for approval. I will let you know as soon as it is available for iOS devices.

Please bear with me as I am still copying and pasting blog posts into the app's "admin panel," I will get them all added just as soon as I can.

I am super-excited about a few features that On My Kindle's mobile app offers:

Shop - users can access this feature to easily find and buy books that interest them. This will allow you to grab the books that I am reading, reviewing, and featuring during the week.

Fan Page - the app's Fan Page feature gives me the ability to have conversations with customers. It is similar to Twitter's and Facebook's direct messaging, which is more engaging than holding a discussion in the "Comments" section of the blog.

Message - this feature allows me to notify app users via text of new reviews, giveaways, limited-time sales, and new releases. This is a HUGE deal for the authors that I work with because we now have a way of telling people about these sales as they are happening, instead of hoping that they see the blog post or social media announcement before these promotions end.

This app is one more step towards world domination establishing On My Kindle as an authority on indie titles, and a helpful resource for indie authors.


Since I am reading and reviewing at a faster pace, I am going to review three books this week:

In Defense of the Moth by Johnny Newport, to be reviewed by On My Kindle    Progeny of Vale by Rhett C. Bruno, to be reviewed by On My Kindle    The Red Deaths by Sean Ervin and Casey Eanes, to be reviewed by On My Kindle

Reviewing The Red Deaths this week was a spur of the moment decision, but I am pretty sure that Seth and Casey will not mind if I post the review early on the blog.


I started on this week's to-be-read list over the weekend, so it looks like I will be able to read three books this week:

The Phantom of Faerie Mountain by E.M. McIntyre, to be read by On My Kindle

Title: The Phantom of Faerie Mountain (The Red King Trilogy, Book One)
Author: E.M. McIntyre
Genre: Teen and Young Adult, Fantasy
Description Source: Goodreads
A telepathic dog. An ancient prophecy. Two devious faeries. 14 yr old Abby Fletcher must unravel their connection when she is thrown into a world of unknowns after receiving a mysterious message from a frightening beast: The Red King must set me free. Determined to discover the meaning of this puzzling phrase, Abby sets off to explore a nearby Scottish mountainside in search of clues. What Abby doesn't realize, however, is that it's not a matter of where she will find her answers but when. Whisked back to the early 14th century, Abby must find the courage to solve the mystery of the Red King and save not only herself but a group of powerless captives wrapped up in a faerie plot.
I am already reading this book. I am not very far into it, but what I have read is delightful. I am looking forward to spending time with this book, and sharing my thoughts about it.

Tales From the Land of Forever by B.A. Keating, to be read by On My Kindle

Title: Tales From the Land of Forever
Author: B.A. Keating
Genre: Children's, Fairy Tales, Chapter Book
Description Source: Goodreads
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were suddenly transported from your world into another, with no way of ever getting home again?

Ten year old Sarah George thought her life couldn’t get any worse after the death of her father and being forced to move to the Cornish countryside to live with her dreadful Aunt Maude. But after sneaking into the manor library late one night – despite her aunt’s express instructions to never set foot in there – and stumbling upon an ancient book, Sarah soon discovers that things can indeed get much worse when she is somehow magically transported to the far-off and enchanted Land of Forever.

Stuck in the Inbetween, Sarah must summon all of her courage and keep her wits about her, as she is now forced to set off on an epic quest - with the help of the ragtag but fiercely loyal band of friends she meets along the way - across this fantastical realm to find her way home to the Ordinary world and her family once more.

Our band of intrepid traveler’s encounter many pitfalls in their desperate search for the elusive Bookkeeper, who Sarah is informed is the key to helping her find her way home once more. And they must battle the dark forces of the Silent Forest, escape the clutches of an evil banshee, and survive a brush with the deadly and sinister Watchers, before eventually reaching the Middle Lands and the spectacular golden palace of the Fairy Godfather, where the most powerful sorcerer in the land holds Sarah’s fate entirely in his hands.

Journey across the Land of Forever with Sarah and her friends for a magical, page-turning, action-packed adventure you will never forget.
This sounds like an adorable book, and I am really excited to get started on it.

Curse Me Not by Elizabeth Fisher, to be read by On My Kindle

Title: Curse Me Not
Author: Elizabeth Fisher
Genre: Paranormal, Romance
Description Source: Goodreads
Appalachian unsophisticate Elzetta Swan has gained a rare ability considered very lucrative in her reality: she can see people’s auras and clean revenge curses off those auras. Embracing the gift faster than grass through a goose, she’s about to finish her first year as a licensed "bodywasher" in Knoxville, Tennessee, with a countrified inner child that’s skipping all the way to the bank.

Suddenly a routine aura cleansing turns ugly. Elzetta suspects a professional invoker has come to town—one who’s hooked on the rush of setting particularly nasty curses. If that wasn’t bad enough, the invoker may be visiting at the invitation of a mysterious local with a malicious hard-on for revenge.

Well-intentioned but often out of her depth, Elzetta attempts to track down the culprits. In doing so, she ends up facing threats to both her trendy new life and the hallelujah hankering she’s formed for a reluctant—and way too sexy—urban white knight who’s crossed her path. Will the confrontations create in Elzetta a vengeful rage all her own?
Another favorite genre of mine is paranormal; I did not really read many "paranormal" books before I started reviewing, but I found out that I have been missing out. I have not reviewed books about witchcraft, so I am interested to see Elizabeth's take on it.
