Yesterday was an INSANE “early” book release day ➜ Monday Early Bird Book Releases! (<— YOU HAVE TO check out this list!!! So many of ‘em are in the top 100 of Amazon right now, in fact)!
Andrea: what a busy Monday it was in book world!!
Maryse: …yes, yesterday was a STAR release day for sure.
PLUS! I’m reading one of them as we speak (Playboy Pilot by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland). PLUS!!! I’m also reading (almost finished) one that is coming out next week (Transfer (The Retrieval Duet Book 2) by Aly Martinez), and both of these books are doing it for me!
BUT!!! TODAY is the “official” weekly release day, and you know there are a few below that made me go… “I WANNA READ THIS NOW!!!”
Like… My Lucky Days (that one up there to the left. I LOVE this author, and this one is calling to me BIG TIME! He’s an up and coming country star, and she’s a college student and they meet and fall head-over-heels, but him being on the road tears them apart), The Kept Woman (that title ALONE has me on edge, and it sounds like some a marital discord thriller), Sweet Dreams (sounds SO fun! She has a one night stand, and then soon finds herself touring his HUGE company with her culinary school), The Plan (sounds heart wrenching and deep – she’s grieving the loss of her husband and children, and he’s an Irishman that was born disabled), Ruin (OMG THE COVER AND BLURB of this one!!! She keeps smiling despite the “mean girls” and he is fascinated with her… but then destroys her! *gasp*!!!), Drawn Deeper (his alcoholic wife leaves them without a trace, and he’s raising his sons as a single father, and then someone shows up, turning his world upside down).
So many book-GOODIES!!!
Oh!! AND ➜ All-New Fire HD 8 Tablet, 8″ HD Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB – Includes Special Offers <— NEW KINDLE FIRE up for pre-order going live TOMORROW (on September 21st 2016)!!
