in Latest Book Releases

<— Okay so tomorrow is gonna be AWESOME!!!! There will be some serious squirreling going on, ’cause there are at least FIVE books on that list that I had been dying to read, let alone the ones that I still have to explore the blurbs for!

Taylor Jenkins-Reid (my FAVORITE!), Cara McKenna (my FAVORITE), Tracey Garvis-Graves (my FAVORITE), Stephen King (my FAVORITE) Tee hee…. I could go on and on, ’cause tomorrow’s list is LOADED in our favorites (including T.M Frazier <— surprise pre-order!!! AND Nicole Jacquelyn which is my read for tomorrow).

In fact, I have already read and reviewed two of the books going live tomorrow (here’s my review for One True Loves and here’s my review for Killing the Sun), I’m reading a third one right now (Idol <— it’s a rock star book and I’m so into it… maybe I’ll have the review up tonight), and then first thing in the morning (well, after I finish the BIG new release post), I’m moving on to Unbreak My Heart (<— OMG THIS ONE! I would have already started it, but Amy and I wanna buddy-read it so I’m waiting’ for her).

Poor Amy… I just realized, by locking her into a buddy-read with me for Unbreak My Heart (which we’re both dying to read ’cause it sound EXACTLY like the angsty, unrequited-love romance that we devour), she can’t jump right into One True Loves that she was (is!!) DYING to read. I feel bad… P.S. JOIN OUR BUDDY READ!!! :D

Amy: I want to start it on Tuesday BUT I am supposed to BR Unbreak My Heart with MARYSE on Tuesday. Unless she already read it and didn’t tell me. *side-eyes Maryse* In which case the earrings are coming off…then I’ll have to hide them because she’ll get all “shiny!” on me and take them. :P

bev: She did. She did read it.

Amy: What?? WHAT?!?? MARYYYYYYYYYYSE!!! Where are you?!?

Maryse: I’m here Amy. I’m reading now… (but not our buddy read!! I promise)… although I DID read One True Loves. ;) *sideeyes bev* Tattler! :P

Amy: Maryse…phew!! *wipes forehead and relaxes* Thought I was going to be on my own for that one. ;) Okay, you can go back to your reading (which is…?) now that I’m through angrily stomping around here.

Maryse: Right now I’m reading Idol (she finds him – rock star!! – passed out on her lawn… it’s SO funny!!! She doesn’t realize he’s famous yet…)

No matter what we read tomorrow… YAY ME!!!!! LOL!!!!! ‘Cause the upcoming new releases are right up my ALLEY!!!

R. Renee June 6, 2016 at 10:15 AM

I can’t focus today because I keep refreshing USPS tracking page waiting on One True Loves. Like it’s going to magically get here faster. It’s in Fort Worth right now, so if Fabi could just swing by and pick it up and meet me in Waco…I’ll buy lunch!

Now I remember why I love my Kindle app.

Tessa June 6, 2016 at 10:56 AM

Oh good. Coast is tomorrow. :) I need to read that after the ending of Kick, Push. That is, if I’m done with Midnight Marked by Chloe Neill by then.

Maryse June 6, 2016 at 11:16 AM

And then… R. Renee and Fabi… if you’re going to be in Waco, can y’all go to The Magnolia shops (Chip & Johanna’s silos) and show me stuff? I wanna go there SO BAD!

R. Renee June 6, 2016 at 11:18 AM

Oh I know!!! I can’t believe I live in driving distance and I’ve never been there!

Fabi June 6, 2016 at 12:23 PM

Sure R. I’ll gladly pick up in exchange for lunch. :-)

Remind me again why you had to order it instead of downloading it?

See Maryse, that’s the problem with living in Florida. We all go vacation “to Florida” but most people don’t vacation “away from Florida”. :-/

I can’t believe you’re reading Idol. I am beyond tempted by that book.

Does anyone else’s fingers tingle when you want to 1-click so bad but you know you won’t even be able to think about reading a new book until you read the next 5 lined up on your tbr?

Cheryl June 6, 2016 at 12:24 PM

So many new releases I want to read. I don’t know what to start with! Maybe I’ll BR with you Maryse and Amy.

R. Renee June 6, 2016 at 12:29 PM

I love owning paperbacks or hardcovers for my favorite writers and it occurred to me that many of the books I love are almost the same price in Kindle, so I might as well get the pretty book for my shelf!! But, now I’m kicking myself because I want to read it asap, so I may end up downloading it too! I’ll be going through this again when Full Tilt and I Swear on This Life come out!

Lunch will have to wait though. We have some shopping to do for Maryse!

Ela June 6, 2016 at 12:32 PM

No words! Just no words! There is just too much!

Lauren June 6, 2016 at 1:37 PM

Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire is $1.99, down from $7.99.

Tessa June 6, 2016 at 2:00 PM

Fabi, does that mean I can kick out all the tourist? :P I grew up in the other tourist state. I still get annoyed with spring breakers as a result. And a lot of them were from FL! They exchanged sunshine to visit sunshine? Weird.

Fabi June 6, 2016 at 2:11 PM

hahaha Tessa. You have my permission to kick out the tourists.

Wait a minute…didn’t you just come back from vacation in Orlando?

Maryse June 6, 2016 at 2:20 PM

YAY!!!! Shopping for Maryse!

So this tropical storm is pretty on and off all day. I do enjoy the rain!!

Tessa June 6, 2016 at 2:27 PM

ROFL. Yes. However, their Disneyworld and Universal are way better than ours. I grew up in a beach city. Why fly 2000 miles to go to a beach?

Tessa June 6, 2016 at 2:28 PM

Oooh. I want a tropical storm! I’d love a rainy day today.

Maryse June 6, 2016 at 2:53 PM

Tessa, what state are you in again?

Tessa June 6, 2016 at 2:55 PM

California. :) We don’t get tropical storms at all here.

Jean June 6, 2016 at 3:07 PM

Wow, this list is overwhelmingly great! And yes Fabi, I want to 1-click Idol sooooooo bad, but that would be like throwing my TBR list out the window…..well, I’ve done that a lot lately anyway so……

For those of you who haven’t read Kick Push by Jay McLean, it’s .99$ today. Loved that book, but the ending kinda left you hanging…..with Coast coming out tomorrow though, there’s no excuse!

Okay, who else is brave enough to BR Unbreak My Heart with Maryse and Amy. I was going to, but I’m feeling a little squirrelly….

I love the rainy days with my Kindle in my lap!

Jean June 6, 2016 at 3:10 PM

I know it’s not first line Thursday, but I just had to share this first line:

“For my eternal mate, I choose Ryan Gosling. Strip him, bathe him, and bring him to my bed.” (Desiring Red by Kristen Miller – provided by NetGalley)

Ela June 6, 2016 at 3:12 PM

I would Jean if I really didn’t want to read Six and step back onto the dark side :)

Trying to finish up Hooker and I have to say that this book is DRAGGING AND THE CHICK AND GUY ARE BOTH EFIN ANNOYING A LOT OF THE TIMES BUT I WILL NOT DNF!

Jean June 6, 2016 at 3:16 PM

Oooo Ela, yeah Six looks so good too! You can be the guinea pig for that one!

I know, I never DNF no matter how much I’m suffering.

Cheryl June 6, 2016 at 3:16 PM

Since I can’t make up my mind which book to read next I’ll BR with you Maryse, Amy & Jean!!

Jean June 6, 2016 at 3:20 PM

Yay Cheryl!! I think we will need the support!

Ela June 6, 2016 at 4:10 PM

Geez! Nobody wanna guinea pig with me? Fabi???? Six by KI Lynn!

Fabi June 6, 2016 at 4:53 PM

Ela, we just read a dark one. I have to get a little break between them. :-(

Theresa June 6, 2016 at 5:05 PM

Marsye, Paige Tyler and Katie Reus have books coming out tomorrow

Anne June 6, 2016 at 6:06 PM

I can’t wait for White Hot Hack and Idol! :D

Amy June 6, 2016 at 6:28 PM

“I would have already started it, but Amy and I wanna buddy-read it so I’m waiting’ for her” <——- And I love ya for that!!! You had it early but waited…you are the bestest ever!! *huge squeezy hug*

Sooooo, Jean and Cheryl are joining us (YAY!)…anyone else going to hang out in the heartbreak blankie fort with us? Brownies and martinis are a given in there, you know… ;)

Idol, A Promise Kept (still have yet to find another Ryan Christianson, but hope springs eternal ;) ), Vivid Lies (no reviews yet but HOLY MOLY, that blurb!)…what great surprises today! :D

bev June 6, 2016 at 6:29 PM

Fabi……just squirrel.

bev June 6, 2016 at 6:30 PM

Hey, Amy? You know who is the bestest ever?

Amy June 6, 2016 at 6:31 PM

Those of you who don’t DNF…kudos to y’all. Seriously! I have DNF’d so many lately. I feel badly about it but… *shrugs*

Amy June 6, 2016 at 6:32 PM

Don’t tell me…Sherlock.


Jean June 6, 2016 at 6:33 PM


Jean June 6, 2016 at 6:35 PM

Oh can I bring my hubby too? He’s an electrician! Very useful! Lol!

bev June 6, 2016 at 6:37 PM

Fabi & MichelleS.
For watching Sherlock.

Amy June 6, 2016 at 6:40 PM


Fabi June 6, 2016 at 6:44 PM

bahahabahaha Bev – I don’t even know what to say.

On another note, I can’t squirrel right now because I have to finish an ARC that comes out tomorrow and I have a loan expiring in a couple of days that I haven’t even started yet.

Janet June 6, 2016 at 7:16 PM

Deborah ‘s Inferno – Book 4 of the Heat series – came out today

Janet June 6, 2016 at 7:18 PM

Sorry that was Deborah Bladon’s Inferno – part 4 of the Heat series came out today.

Lisa June 6, 2016 at 7:55 PM

Damn. I want to buddy read with Maryse, Amy & Jean but its only available here as audio or paperback….even when I try to order on US amazon. It will take forever for paperback to reach me…’ll be 100 books past this one by then! :(

Cheryl June 6, 2016 at 8:17 PM

Is it midnight yet?!!! I don’t want to start another book, but damn I was hoping one of the new releases would release early. *pouts*

R. Renee June 6, 2016 at 8:17 PM

Right?? This is the longest day EVER.

Maryse June 6, 2016 at 8:35 PM

Who’s Sherlock? :|

Sharon June 6, 2016 at 8:37 PM

I can’t believe there is a me Stanton book!!!!

Sharon June 6, 2016 at 8:37 PM

I meant . . . New Stanton. Guess I got excited!

bev June 6, 2016 at 8:38 PM

Amnesia! !

bev June 6, 2016 at 8:39 PM

Stay calm Maryse. Yes, your name is Maryse.
Your nicknames are Maurice & Marmie.

bev June 6, 2016 at 8:41 PM

First things first.
This is your blog. Your book blog. BUT, (and this is important) you made a sacred oath that you would not read another book until you watched Sherlock.

bev June 6, 2016 at 8:42 PM

“Why?” , you ask.

I saved your life.

Cheryl June 6, 2016 at 8:42 PM

At least you can click on the books on Amazon and read the samples already.

Cheryl June 6, 2016 at 8:43 PM

Bev, you are one of a kind. You crack me up!!!!

Lisa June 6, 2016 at 8:49 PM

Maryse sometimes your name is Master, when autocorrect deems it so!

bev June 6, 2016 at 8:51 PM


Lisa June 6, 2016 at 9:08 PM

Hilarious…..Ive done it by accident a couple of times by not checking my stupid autocorrect….who thinks he knows better than me (cos obviously autocorrect is a He).

Maryse June 6, 2016 at 9:08 PM


Is Sherlock my book-boyfriend?

Maryse June 6, 2016 at 9:09 PM

Ohhhh so Sherlock is my sub?? NICE! :P

bev June 6, 2016 at 9:15 PM

Maryse you are not a dom. Well you weren’t, maybe you will be in this new life.

And, yes, he may enjoy that. You won’t know until you watch.

You know that one little scar you have? Yes, that one.
That is from your blood oath.
To watch Sherlock.

Fabi June 6, 2016 at 9:34 PM

No matter what else is going on. I can always come here for a good laugh.

Fabi June 6, 2016 at 9:35 PM

So, ah, I guess it’s obvious which ones here will give in to peer pressure. ;-)

bev June 6, 2016 at 10:00 PM

Fabi, sometimes it’s not peer pressure.
Sometimes it’s pity.

Grace June 7, 2016 at 4:06 AM

So here’s the thing…. Normally if Amy and Maryse (Master) are all excited about a book with “break” and “heart” right there in the title, I would steer WELL clear of that pain mongering hurt fest. The problem is, I can’t lose my Poldark book funk and Mister O couldn’t happy me out of it, and This Old Heart of Mine’s deep love couldn’t even break me out of it! I’m dragging myself through a highlander historical hoping for something to click, but it’s not happening.

So against my normally much better judgement, I’m going to do the BR and see if a book that “hurts” in a way that makes the cut and bleeding heart lovers get all “happy” will break through to me.

LOL! I will probably love it. Book hangovers are stupid!!!

Grace June 7, 2016 at 4:44 AM

Grrrrrrr!!! Seriously!
8% in and I’m doing everything I can not to throw my iPad against the wall!

Grace June 7, 2016 at 8:14 AM

I hate everyone and everything right now.

On the other hand, I am fully out of my book funk.

Jean June 7, 2016 at 8:44 AM

Grace, you are reading Unbreak My Heart?? I’m only up to 11%, but was cursing Amy and Maryse this morning while I was a sobbing mess at only 5% of the book! (Really loving it so far though so what does that say? ) Thankfully, I hadn’t taken a shower or applied my makeup yet! Now, stupid work is getting in the way and I just want to get back to it!

Grace June 7, 2016 at 8:50 AM

Jean – Enjoy the peace of working for the rest of the day and get a box of tissues on the way home. Oh and something squishy that you can angry squeeze without killing it. Also maybe warn whoever might live with you. My hubby is treading lightly, but still kind of laughing at me.

Maryse and Amy are temporarily dead to me.

Grace June 7, 2016 at 8:54 AM

Sorry…. Yes, it’s Unbreak My Heart! Yes, I am loving it. God!
I need my head examined!

Maryse June 7, 2016 at 9:04 AM


Your reactions are making me so excited. You guys are killing me. I LOVE IT!

Jean June 7, 2016 at 9:05 AM

Blahahahaha Grace! I am laughing so hard right now!

Jean June 7, 2016 at 9:06 AM

Omg, Maryse! Get started! I think you’re gonna love it. I figure Amy is still sleeping since she hasn’t piped in yet!

Grace June 7, 2016 at 9:27 AM

More UMH warnings…

Also avoid having sharp objects hanging around because I don’t think it’s possible to read this without getting stabby! And being stabby with eyes full of tears is worse then running with scissors!

Just saying….

Jean June 7, 2016 at 9:50 AM

Lol Grace!

Ela June 7, 2016 at 10:16 AM

OMG Grace! That book sounds like SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!!! UM NOT…

Amy June 7, 2016 at 10:28 AM

LOL Grace!!!!!!!!

I am SO freaking excited to start it…slow day school wise so YAY ME!!

Are we doing a happy wiggle dance, Maryse?? Especially after those comments?!? I think we ARE doing happy wiggle dance!!! :D

Amy, I just started My Life Next Door this morning and I’m really liking it! I’m definitely reading Unbreak My Heart next…or maybe even starting that tonight…

Tessa, Finding Fire might be worth a read too when you want some PNR.

Tessa June 7, 2016 at 8:34 PM

That one definitely looks good. I’m on three with the beyond series so that was a true treat. Finding Fire will be high on my TBR.
