Another Tea Addicted Writer On The Loose!

It is time for part two of my involvement in author Jessi Elliott’s blog tour! This tour surrounds the release of her second novel, Twisted Gift, which just came out on the 21st of this month. Today’s post is fun for me as it’s an interview with the author herself. Now in order to accomplish this, as one – we live in different countries, and two – she has a lot of interviews to do. The best option was for me to e-mail her my list of questions and she responded to each of them. So as you continue on to reading the actual interview, I would like to note that I am leaving her words as she wrote them.

Welcome to part one (of two) with my involvement in author Jessi Elliott’s blog tour! Today I bring forth a review of Elliott’s latest release, Twisted Gift. This is the sequel to her debut novel Twisted Fate. For the purpose of full disclosure I did receive a free e-ARC (advance readers copy in eBook form) in early August. This was part sealing my fate with being a part of this tour, as well as in exchange for my honest opinion. In no way shape of form does the fact that I’m involved with this tour or received the e-ARC alter my own thoughts in response to the novel I read. The review is 100% my own opinion, just as all my reviews are. With that, I do forewarn that if you haven’t read Twisted Fate yet – you may bump into a spoiler or two.

As things continue to shape up behind the scenes with my debut novel, I am so happy to come to this point where I feel it’s definitely appropriate to share the actual title of it. From this point on I won’t have to refer to this novel as the Untitled Horror Project. I’ll be able to use its proper name. Since the moment that I finally came up with my title, I’ve seriously wanted to just shout it from the roof tops. There was this strange desire to rush around and tell everyone I ran into. However, my gut told me the timing wasn’t quite right. So outside of very few people in my life, I held it in and continued to refer to this book as the Untitled Horror Project. Now here I am finally ready for the reveal!

Going forward with these unboxing posts, I first feel I must ask – do you want me to include the eBook(s) given out in the member newsletter, or just stick with what physically comes in the box each month? I ask this, because last month part of my flaking out on doing an unboxing post for My Thrill Club was in part that we never received our newsletter. Well it turns out a new deal had to be made with Book Shout and as of the 4th of this month we got an e-mail with codes for each category (horror, thriller, mystery). I’m not really sure if those were for last month or this current, but either way it has me wondering if I should even focus on the eBook sharing on here at all. The boxes themselves usually come very early in the month, but the newsletters have come much later. What would you like to see? Let me know in the comments below! For this post, I shall include what was in that e-mail on the 4th for horror. So let’s get on with this month’s unboxing!

I feel like if I was a YouTuber this would end up being a ‘Get Ready With Me (GRWM) + Chit Chat’ type of video. I would be sitting at my desk with a mirror and makeup, putting on my face for the day as I discuss life happenings. At the moment however, I am not a YouTuber and thus you all get a blog post. Not of me doing my makeup or explaining my morning routine. Instead, we are going to skip all that fun stuff and jump to the ‘chit chat’ portion of the video – err, post.

The lovely Britchy has updated her previous tag with the twist of using Bands/Groups. I immediately knew of a certain British girl group that I had to do this with. I’ve been a fan since they hit the States with their smash hit Wannabe. Say what you will of them, but their music got me through a lot in darker days. In case you missed my previous post, basically you answer the questions below with only a song title from the band/group you selected to use. Again, I may do this again with a different act in the future. These are definitely good for a laugh.

So the lovely Britchy over at Bitchin’ in the Kitchin made this fun tag post, where you answer questions by only using song titles to a solo artist (not a band/group). I instantly had like a few different artists that I thought this would be fun to do this with, but I picked one and will maybe do this again later on with a different artist.

Are you a nonfiction reader? My Mentor Book Club offers their subscribers two hardcover books that mostly seemed aimed towards personal and professional development, though there is some nonfiction stories included in the mix. I first heard of this subscription service at the beginning of the month when I saw an advertisement via social media to get the first box free. Of course I clicked, because I love to read and this is an area of reading that interests me. Therefore this was an offer I was willing to check out.

Growing up with three older brothers, I can assure you video games were welcomed in our household. I actually found quite a handful over the years that I really enjoyed. When I was looking around in search of fun new book themed tags to do for the site, I came across the YouTube channel Sam’s Nonsense. This is where I found a beautiful Nintendo themed book tag! After watching her video and looking over the questions, I couldn’t help myself. I simply had to do this one! Keep reading for my answers.
