Happy Cyber Monday my friends!!! A few earlybird book releases have graced us with their presence, and some super SUPER book sales to rejoice in (a few that I’ve read and loved, and a few recent releases that sound SO one-click worthy).

PLUS!! I read and reviewed Colleen Hoover’s latest thrill-fest that was an absolute panic-inducer, so make sure to check out my review of “Too Late”. It’s never too late to jump in to this one, I can assure you! ;)

Plus… there’s awesome book news all around. Stuff like… Ann Rice working on a Vampire Chronicles TV series!!!!! eek GASP!!! Details below:


Jennifer L Armentrout’s latest, Fire in You (Wait for You Series Book 6), JUST WENT LIVE!!! She’s ready to move on and become stronger, so…

She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living.

She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he’s impossibly more handsome…

Molly McAdams just posted the cover reveal of her upcoming book “Blackbird”! Sounds like a dark romance, because he’s there to BUY a girl at an auction!!

“…I’ve trained for this. I know what to say, what to do, and how to act. I’ve perfected the lethal calm required for this life. Now it’s time to buy my first girl. But all it takes is one look at the brave girl who starts singing mid-auction for that calm to slip…”

Anne Rice is preparing for her own “The Vampire Chronicles” TV series!! She has just regained the theatrical rights to her series, and she and her son will be plotting the series together! As announced on Entertainment Weekly, she says:

“A television series of the highest quality is now my dream for Lestat, Louis, Armand, Marius and the entire tribe. In this new Golden Age of television, such a series is THE way to let the entire story of the vampires unfold,”

Tillie Cole ALERT!!! The LATEST BY TILLIE COLE JUST WENT LIVE EARLY!!! A Veil of Vines <— Lauren is excited for it, saying: “She is one of my few automatic 1-click authors. I honestly don’t think she can write a bad book.” What’s it about? She’s an Italian Royal living in Manhattan and prearranged to marry another Royal… except… *whooooops*

“I am soon to become Prince Zeno Savona’s wife…
… or at least I was, until I met Achille.
And everything changed.”

Melanie Harlow just had an early book release too! After We Fall!! HE’S AN EX-ARMY SERGEANT THAT IS GRIEVING HIS WIFE and he’s not so impressed with this new PR girl…

“…Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so….

Jessica Park’sFlat-Out Love” has been optioned for a movie!! I LOVED this book. One of my first “indie new adult” love affairs!!! :D Here’s my review, just to give you an idea. The author says:

Okay, so I finally get to announce some very fun news! FLAT-OUT LOVE has been optioned for a movie by a wonderful independent production team! I just read the first draft of the screenplay, and I can honestly and excitedly say that I AM BLOWN AWAY. I was really fussy about letting someone try to transform this into a screenplay, but it’s perfect. It captures the story, the characters, the total feel of the book

Paullina Simons is releasing a brand new book tomorrow!!! Road to Paradise: A Novel will be live at midnight, and there will be a giveaway for a a copy of this book and ANOTHER one from her repertoire right here on my blog! :D

J.D. Robb’s team just posted about an excerpt from her book Echoes in Death: An Eve Dallas Novel (In Death, Book 44)

“I’ll have it up on the blog tomorrow, but for now the only places you can find the excerpt for Echoes in Death is through the newsletter that went out overnight or on the Entertainment Weekly website. Enjoy! ~Laura”

Mia Asher just TEASED US!!!! This very short and sweet (or should I say angsty-sounding) quote comes from her yet untitled work in progress. And THIS one!

Ker Dukey & K. Webster‘s Pretty Lost Dolls JUST WENT LIVE today! I read book #1 – Pretty Stolen Dolls (and reviewed it here)

K.I Lynn‘s latest Own: Need part 3 JUST WENT LIVE!!!


  • Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks <— HIS LATEST RELEASE is on super-sale today!!! HIS PERFECT LIFE IS FLIPPED UPSIDE DOWN…
“He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear…and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down. In a matter of months, Russ finds himself without a job or wife, caring for his young daughter while struggling to adapt to a new and baffling reality.”
  • Behind Closed Doors: The most emotional and intriguing psychological suspense thriller you can’t put downby B. A. Paris <— One of my PSYCH-THRILLER recent favorites is one of today’s Cyber Monday sales!!! *squeeeeee* Everyone thinks they have the perfect marriage, but is he a monster behind closed doors…? (my review).
