Got another one for you Maryse! Dannika Darks last book in the Seven Series, One Second, comes out April 5th! I can’t believe this is the end, I will miss reading about the Weston Pack. One of the best shifter series out there!

Oh, just remembered that J C Diem’s last book in her Shifter Squad series, Hell Spawn, comes out later this year. It’s up for pre-order.

Inevitable Circumstances is bargain priced at 99 cents on all platforms for a few more days.

I like Ten, Set the Pace- I’ll wait until book 2 is out before starting it, although happy the author said it’s a 2 book series upfront. Ohhh, I like the blurb for Until It’s Right too!

This week is going to be great- The Ground Rules Undone, Slip of the Tongue, The Way Back to Me. It’s great to have a plan on what to read. Well, that is until Maryse posts more new releases this week!!

Also, February is almost over and Mariana Zapata said her latest book- The Wall of Winnipeg and Me would be out in February. Any one heard anything definite?

Hi Maryse, I know I went on and on about this series in my faves of 2015, but I just finished Dawn of Forever (the 3rd/finale to the series) and this series is just an ABSOLUTE MUST READ!!!!! You HAVE TO READ IT MARYSE!!!!! All 3 books must be read in order and all the way through to get the full story. I have no idea how/why this series is so under the radar. It could so be a movie. It is such a clever, unique, well-written, witty, emotions all over the place journey… Not one hot guy, but two, actually 3! It’s just so flippin good! Straight up perfection. 5 stars!!!!! And I’m so bummed it’s over. :( If it’s not on your TBR, please put it there. If it is there, bump it up, bump it up!!!! Middle of Knight > Dawn of Forever. <3

GAH marina, Rebecca is telling me the SAME THING she’s going CRAZY for that trilogy and now I MUST read it. I’m so excited!!!!!! :D

marina February 22, 2016 at 6:25 PM

You MUST MUST MUST. I haven’t been going crazy town (although I so have) because you know how sometimes books can be built up too much and then they don’t live up. But I really, truly think this series should absolutely NOT BE MISSED. I seriously am having a hard time moving on. I need one of those “what to read after” lists. And all 3 books are out so you don’t have to wait! I just realized I forgot to put End of Day first in above comment… Even the titles are so clever… Don’t want to say too much… Best to just dive in for the whole ride!! Can’t wait for you to read it!!!!!!!!!
