Tib and Tumtum #1: Welcome to the Tribe by Grimaldi and Bannister

Book Jacket Summary
The kids in Tib's tribe are so mean! They always make fun of Tib's birthmark. But one day Tib meets a new friend in the forest. This friend doesn't mind the birthmark. In fact, he has one too! He also has razor sharp teeth! 

Of course, no one believes Tib when he says he's found a real, live dinosaur. Dinosaurs went extinct millions of years ago! How can Tib convince his tribe that his "imaginary friend" isn’t so imaginary after all?

My Thoughts
Graphic novels are so much fun and the new series of Tib and Tumtum run with concept. It is almost a situational comedy about a boy trying to tell everyone that he has a dinosaur friend but the dinosaur is doing everything in its power to hide the fact. Tib is your average cave boy, except for two things, a birthmark around his eye and a dinosaur that follows him around. He is teased about both because no one has seen the dinosaur but him. I had fun reading this comic and just enjoyed the ride of Tib's activities throughout the day. It was funny seeing life of a cave boy that seemed so modern.
Fans of How to Train Your Dragon will get a kick out of a boy who has an incredible friend that should be an enemy. It is a fast read but one that can be read over and over. Tib is sweet and adventurous, always ready to get in trouble. He has trouble with the other kids because they make fun of his birthmark. Always saying that he doesn't wash properly, calling him polka-dot face, and leaving him out of things. He finds a true friend in Tumtum and the little girl Kara (who might have a bit of a crush on Tib). I recommend this one and not just the younger kids.

Seven Day Fiance Cover Reveal















Seven Day Fiancé (Love and Games #2)




Release Date: 10/14/13


Entangled Bliss





Summary from Goodreads:


Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning Cane at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.

Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.

About the Author

I grew up in New Orleans, where I watched soap operas with my grandmother and stayed up late sneak reading my mama’s favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, I still stay up way too late reading my favorite romances, only now, I can do so openly. I firmly believe life’s problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations. 


When not typing furiously or flipping pages in an enthralling romance, I homeschool my two beautiful girls and watch reality television with my amazing husband.

I write YA, NA, and Adult Fun & Flirty Escapes. Taste The Heat is my adult romance debut, and I'm also the author of MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY and A TALE OF TWO CENTURIES, as well as a ton of other books to come. I love hearing from readers and dishing books!

Except maybe Chase, the older brother of Abigail's biggest rival. He’s charming, funny, and possibly Abigail's biggest problem. How can she focus on riding when her mind keeps wandering to Chase’s green eyes and confident smile?




With her dream on the line, Abigail had better learn to fight her growing attraction to Chase, or she might end up losing the roses and the guy.
