Review: Touch by Jus Accardo

Touch (Denazen #1)Touch by Jus Accardo

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

I was able to read Touch thanks to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing.

Touch was enjoyable. The author created an interesting world. The idea of a corporation controlling the Sixes was unique and intriguing. However, I found myself confused sometimes when information was being thrown at me so fast that I couldn't keep up. I had to re-read some passages to figure out what I had missed the first time around. A little more background information on Denizen and the Sixes would have helped. I want to know how it all started.

I liked the characters. Deznee is an adrenaline junkie. She was strong and fearless and never backed down. Although I would have liked to see a little more vulnerability from her. Kale was innocent, yet strong and protective, especially when it came to Deznee. He was also cute, but totally clueless! I enjoyed watching Kale experience a lot of 'firsts'. The secondary characters are quite varied - from best friend to very bad men, everyone played an important role in the story.

Touch is fast paced, exciting, and sick and twisted. I will definitely be reading the next in this series.

New Listings on Etsy and ArtFire

Here are a few items that I made this week that I will be listing.

First is this wristlet I made using Joel Dewberry Ginseng Wildflowers in Flax. I love this fabric, but it is discontinued and I don't have much of it left.

I also made 3 new Robert Pattinson/Breaking Dawn pouches.

And new Cosmetic Pouch Sets.

Breaking Dawn Inspired Color Splash on HGTV

I watch a lot of HGTV. My dog watches HGTV more than I do, and I'm sure if he could speak he would have some great ideas for our house. The whole dog watching tv thing started when he was just a puppy. We'd put him in his cage at night and turn on the tv very low so he wouldn't hear us and start to whine. He still whined a lot, so whatever. He did get over the whining eventually, but we left the tv on for him because it helped him not feel so alone. We recently started leaving him out of his cage at night and he sleeps all night with no tv. Yay! He's growing up! But he still gets to watch tv during the day while I am upstairs working. HGTV works best because there are no shows or commercials that he barks at. He barks at sirens, other dogs barking, kids laughing and/or screaming, Cops, Flo from the Progressive commercials, and "Cheep cheep fun fun" chicken thing from Dirt Cheap ----------- Beer, and Liquor. He especially hates Flo - she gets growled at.

So earlier today on HGTV I saw what I thought was the Twilight Breaking Dawn commercial coming on, but it looked different somehow... and then it turned into a promo for a Breaking Dawn inspired 'outdoor' makeover by David Bromstad on Color Splash. And look who shows up to surprise the homeowners!

From the little of the room I could see during the commercial, it looks okay, very woodsy and nature inspired. I think it would have been cooler to have an actual room from one of the movies recreated. Hey, they can come to my house and recreate any Twilight inspired room they want. I'd be on board for that. But only if Robert Pattinson showed up in my new room.

Robert Pattinson

Water for Elephants is available on DVD today.

So this morning I spent a little time over at Robsessed looking at the pretty. I haven't checked out what's up for a few months, so it was all new to me!

Scruff! It's all good.

Wow. Love that smile!

Seriously great.

Oh. My.

Have a great day. I know I will!
