Title: When Stars Come Out

Genre(s): Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

WELCOME

Hello And Welcome Everyone, I am so excited because I signed up to review an ARC(Advanced Reader Copy) of When Stars Come Out and I received an email that I was approved. Goody, Goody Gumdrop.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR(FROM GOODREADS)

Scarlett St.Clair lives in Oklahoma with her husband. She has a Master’s degree in Library Science and Information Studies and spends a lot of time researching reincarnation, unsolved murders and Greek mythology-all of which made it into her debut novel, When Stars Come Out (OCT 2018). To get more on Scarlett St. Clair you can go to SCARLETT ST. CLAIR’S GOODREADS PROFILE.

WHAT I EXPECTED

To be quite honest, I really didn’t know what to expect this type of book in these genres mostly because it’s the first time ever reading Urban Fantasy and Young Adult(YA) for me. I’m always up for trying new genres and new authors and never know if I’m going to like them or not. I guess in a case like this I set my rating middle grade. Middle grade for me is 2 1/2 stars. Then after I read the book fully I judge to make it higher or lower. A description of the book When Stars come out by Scarlett St. Clair is listed below.

DESCRIPTION OF BOOK

Anora Silby can see the dead and turns spirits into gold coins, two things she would prefer to keep secret as she tries to lead a normal life at her new school. After all, she didn’t change her identity for nothing.

As it turns out, hiding her weirdness is just one of many challenges. By the end of her first day, she’s claimed the soul of a dead girl  on campus and lost the coin. Turns out, the coin gives others the ability to steal souls, and when a classmate end up dead, there’s no mistaking the murder weapon.

Navigating the loss of her Poppa, her mother’s unpredictable behavior, and Roundtable, an anonymous student gossip app threatening to expose her, are hard enough. Now she must find the person who stole her coin before more lives are lost, but that means making herself a target for the Order, an organization that governs the dead on Earth-and they want Anora and her powers for themselves.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK

For reading these genres for the very first time I really enjoyed reading the book. I was pleasantly surprised of how interesting this was. I liked how it was a page turner(I didn’t want to put it down), It kept my interest and it didn’t take long to read. I started reading on November 9, 2018 and ended November 11, 2018. I guess when I started at 2 1/2 stars I started to low. I also thought it may have bordered on the Sci-Fi genre but wasn’t sure. I also liked the cover of this book and it showed how much trouble this girl was having and the despair she was in.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK

That’s easy. I didn’t like the use of the F-word and some other bad language that was used. Other than that I really enjoyed this book. I give it 4 1/2 / 5 stars. If the bad language weren’t used it would be rated about 5 1/2 or 6 stars in book. I liked it that much. 

WHY I SIGNED UP TO REVIEW THIS BOOK

I think it’s important to put this section in my review not because other reviewers do it to but because I think the author, other authors, all my readers and viewers should know why. 

In all the book blogs I follow, I have yet to see one reviewer put in why they signed up to review the book. I think that is to bad because I think readers would be interested in knowing. I know I would. 

So onto why I signed up to review When Stars Come Out because when I read the blurb I found it interesting and the cover of the book well—can we say it was catchy and right cover for the book. I know this might sound crazy but after reading the blurb and looking at the cover and well basically studying it something called to me saying you have to sign up to review this book, you have to sign up so that’s what I did.

When a book calls to me it usually ends up being a good book.

HOW I JUDGE BOOKS

How I judge books is pretty simple:

1📚=Lousy

2📚=OK

3📚=I Like It

4📚=I Really Like It

5📚=Excellent Book With No Bad Language

RECOMMENDATION AND WHO SHOULD READ THE BOOK.

First let me say my rating is my opinion only. Since it’s a Young Adult genre I would recommend this book  to teenagers and up. Be warned though there is some use of the F-word and other bad language but not much. I would let the parents use their best judgement.

Friendly Fill – ins

Friendly Fill – Ins this week by both Daisy Mae And I. The questions will be answered by Daisy Mae first then I will answer the questions so you will see 2 sets of questions. Daisy Mae’s questions first then mine. Our answers are in italics.

DAISY MAE’S ANSWERS

1.) Shelters that kill animals after a certain amount of time or if you’re a senior animal  is an awful thing to do because animals should be given several chances until they’re fortunate enough to find their furever home.

2.) I always read Interesting sections of the newspaper. (Ha I don’t read the newspaper at all and there are no interesting sections except the funnies.

3.) Black cats are special, my friend and I’m their friend. Black cats get a bad rap especially around this time of the year.

4.) Steak bites and my treats I get at bedtime is my favorite treats.

CRYSTAL’S ANSWERS

1.) The original “IT” movie is an awful movie to watch anytime.

2.) I always read NO sections of the newspaper. The newspaper is to depressing to read. I only read the funnies.

3.) Black cats are special cats just like other cats.

4.) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups warm or cold is my favorite treat.

ENCOURAGING ADVICE!!

MY SPARKS FOR THE WEEK IS ENCOURAGING ADVICE. THIS IS ADVICE WE ALL SHOULD TAKE AND REMEMBER.My encouraging advice to everyone  is to remember that we’ve all failed at one time or another in our lifetime and if you haven’t failed yet you eventually will. When you do fail you will feel like giving up.  My suggestion to you is DON’T GIVE UP!!  How is this encouraging? It’s encouraging because failure at something we desire to have or want really, really bad  means one thing and one thing only and that is that we are headed in the right direction to get  what we want and sometimes we find that we are blessed with something better than we wanted. Also, always remember that the Big named people at Big named companies didn’t get to the top overnight. Another thing to remember is that they had to fail multiple times before making it big so don’t worry if you fail multiple times. http://mcguffysreader.com started this project and tries to spread encouragement weekly. She also invites anyone who wants to help her spread encouragement.  If you like this post and/or site please use the contact form and it will be put in manually. Thanks In Advance.

SEO AND YOUR BLOG

Today is day 10/10 of my blogging course Branding And Growth and you know what that means.  This is my last blogging course and assignment for a while. YIPEE!!

TODAY’S TASK

Today’s task is that  I’m to do an SEO audit on my blog. I’m also to pick one thing to fix or work on today.

WHAT I FIXED AND WORKED

  • I updated my WordPress profile.
  • I worked on tags not relevant to my post. To Many Tags according to WordPress can make seem like a spammer even though you aren’t.

HOW TO AUDIT YOUR BLOG’S SEO

  • Consider Key Words – You’ll want to make sure you brainstorm the most important keywords for your site and use them frequently in your tagline, posts and tags. For example, if you were a travel blogger your key words might include “travel”, “vacation”, “hotel”, the names of destination cities, and other related words such as “nomad” or “backpacking”.
  • Write A Descriptive Tagline – Even if your theme doesn’t display your tagline, search engines can see it. Make sure your tagline accurately describes what your blog is about. Your tagline is a great place for your most important keywords.
  • Ensure Your Profile Is Complete – Ensure your name, screen name, and most importantly your blog’s URL appears on your Profile links. This is especially important when you comment on other people’s blogs.
  • Put Yourself Out There – Make time to visit the reader, follow blogs your interested in and comment thoughtfully on other people’s blogs. Every time you comment on someone’s blog, you also leave your name and URL automatically ( provided your profile is complete). People are naturally curious about the awesome someone who left a thoughtful comment and they’ll follow the link back to your site to learn more about you.
  • Publish Regularly – Make sure that you’re offering new content frequently so that Google comes crawling to index your site.
  • Be Selective With Tags – Choose only the tags most relevant to your posts. Posts with too many tags can be viewed as spammy and those with a combination of 15 tags or more may not appear in the Reader(this I didn’t know).
