This has been one intense list-making experience, this morning! *phew* Tons of new and highly anticipated releases (and one more that I’m waiting on to go live, so keep a look-out – I’ll be updating this list again shortly). Plus of course, some fantastic looking recommendations and I’m absolutely mind-boggled with how I’m going to re-arrange my TBR list. LOL!!!! Wow, I just… there are no words. I’m already so very excited about three of them. Four. Okay six. I got some catching up to do!!
But! One thing I know for sure is that one up there, to the left? That’s what I’m reading as we speak! This is the sequel to “Good” which was that extra-tabooish student teacher read that made me squirm and that I couldn’t put down (to refresh your memory, here’s my review of Good).
And now let’s look at this awesome book-craziness below. A super dark one that just came out that has me so antsy to shift it ALL, to get to it, except I have to read book #1 first, I think. Although that’s no hardship, I’m told it is awesome, too. Plus a few sweet-sad-angsty sounding ones that are tugging at my heart…
BREAKING NEWS UPDATE for Beautiful Nightmares (#3 The Asylum Trilogy) by Lauren Hammond: It’s officially live on Amazon and ready to go!! And I know I can hear *squeeeeeing* all the way from our Facebook page!!! So many of y’all (and ME!!) have been waiting for this one. Y’all ’cause this will relieve the killer cliffhanger (and me, so I can finally start the trilogy – here is the Trilogy reading order). Thanks AMY!!!! (hands you an imaginary stuffed manatee to cuddle!)
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).

- Pieces of Perfect by Elizabeth Hayley <— JL highly recommends it saying: “I laughed harder and more frequently than I think I ever have in a book before. Like, literally laughed my ass off. For those who hate love triangles, stay away! You’ve been warned. If you find yourself getting angry at times, stick with it. I know I was fuming at times, heartbroken at times, but I love the direction the authors took with this book. Yep, authors. There’s two of them. It took me a little bit to figure out exactly how I felt about it, but now that my head is clear of the emotions I felt, I can’t say one bad thing about it. Great book! Different, daring, emotional, hysterical. All around awesome.”
- The Roam Series Boxed Set by Kimberly Stedronsky <— the series is bundled right now and Jennifer is loving it saying: “This is a Paranormal Romance series and I am on book #4 and loving it to piece. There are immortals, and student teacher relationship, and a little time travel! Such a great read I am telling you!”
