WEDNESDAY BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! TWO awesome sounding books went live today!!
- Taking Turns (The Turning Series Book 1) by J.A. Huss <— *BLUSH* Whoa… that looks like a lot of men… and just one woman? Oh wow but boy do I love that blurb!!! “I accepted the key and unlocked the door to their forbidden world. Number One is mostly silent. He watches me with them very carefully. His gaze never wanders. His interest never wanes. Number Two is mostly gentle. But it’s the other side of him I like best. The wild side. Number Three is mostly reserved. He refuses to cross the line. Even when I beg. It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That’s it. That’s all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden. I just didn’t expect to like them.”
- Friction by Emily Snow <— A NEW BOOK BY EMILY SNOW JUST WENT LIVE!!!! HE’S HER BOSS!!! She’s starting over but her new boss is her worst nightmare… and they have history! “The only problem is her boss, Mr. Extreme himself: Jace Exley. He’s everything any sane woman dreams of—alpha, successful, ridiculously gorgeous. He’s also Lucy’s worst nightmare. Because like every overachiever, she has that underachiever she brushed off. The slacker who, once upon a time ago, was the object of her dirtiest schoolgirl fantasies. Jace Exley—with his sarcastic smirk and delicious accent—just happens to be that guy…”
Okay it’s ready and it’s the biggest new release list in awhile. 100+!!!! Even the audiobooks section is crazy (in fact, there’s an audiobook available today, that is only up for preorder in ebook format for February. Craziness!) OH AND!!! If you missed it, make sure to check out the Monday “early bird” releases. It’s just as exciting as today’s ➜ 12 Earlybird Book Releases!!
This is a magical release day, you guys! Not only is it huge and loaded with our BIG HIT authors, but there are a lot of series conclusions that just went live, so for those of you aghast (and possibly titillated) by the latest cliffhanger, relief is on the way!! And for those of you dying to start a series that everyone is loving, but refuse to unless all the books are out, some of these are ready.
In fact a few of my fellow readers were highly anticipating today’s releases!
Tessa: Back to books, next week is the beginning of insanity. Feverborn and Next to Never? *squees* Week after that, the eleventh Charlie Davidson book. All of which makes me happy.
Grey: Super excited about next week. Next to Never and Fidelity come out!
Nay: It would be so awesome if Feversong, by some miracle, released early–too bad there’s a snowball’s chance in hades of that happening! Good morning, everyone!!
Grey: I’m rereading Bully! *squee* Tessa! where are you?!?! Tomorrow, Next to Never comes out! I am kind of bummed I didn’t get an ARC of this one, I would have probably cried LOL! Anyway, gah, Jared and Tate… I love my jerk faced bullies and I know my favorite book is coming next! *tosses confetti in the air* I’m such a sucker…and the playlist thing just makes it for me!
Tessa: Grey, I have Next to Never pre-ordered along with Feversong. I’m not sure which I’ll read first, but probably Feversong. The ending in the last one really gives me a lot of hope.
Sherry: Fidelity by Aleatha Romig :D I’m staying awake waiting for this bad boy!!! STOKED!
