<— PENELOPE DOUGLAS JUST WENT LIVE ALERT!!! Punk 57 is ready, and our fellow book-buddy, Grey, LOVED it!
Grey: This book took my feels for the Fall Away series, Corrupt and Misconduct threw them in the Kitchen-Aid and turned that sucker on. You’re going to read a million reviews of what this story is about, plus I’m not a spoiler queen, so I’m not going to waste your time recapping the story for you. Read the book! I’m just going to tell you that Penelope Douglas doesn’t pull any punches…
Kelly: Yee-Haw! I F-LOVE her books.
Gaaaaahhhh!!! That blurb was like a sucker-punch!! I LOVE IT!

Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am. We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it? Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances? F*ck it. I need to meet her. I just don’t expect to hate what I find.” <—- EEEEEEP!!!! (here it is on Amazon UK)

R: Hausfrau Maryse. Read it. I loved it an hour ago, but Amy just pointed something out and now I LOVE it. And I’m seriously disturbed. Taking Manny and none of you can stop me.
Amy: MARYSE!!!!!! *points to R’s comment about Hausfrau* *raises eyebrows* I think we need to hold off on the Marmy list until after you read Hausfrau…just in case you react the same way I did (and R did). ‘Cause if you do, it will need a spot on that list!! 😀

I kind of want to just read the end and kind of don’t want to know at all.

Grey: Awww bev. *hug* *I* might be scared of that book… Never read it.
Maryse: Ooooh bev!!! *runs to see what the book is about* Oh nooooooo!!!! WOW… I can’t even IMAGINE being in that situation. Heart wrenching.
Ela: That is some freaky stuff right there bev…..you poor thing!

Rachel: Rachel: “Maryse I was recommended PULL ME CLOSE by Sidney halston via Goodreads. They’ve been harping on it so much I ended up getting a copy from Netgalley. Now I see what all the fuss is about! MARYSE, it is soooo damn good. Maybe the author will give you an arc or something. Listen to this…she had a tragic event something you are NOT expecting and has been a recluse for years because of it. She ends up meeting a guy who owns a nightclub. But she can’t go see him because she can’t leave her house beacaue she’s agoraphobic! Gahhh. So good.”
Jean: Oh, oh, oh……Pull Me Close! Already read an ARC and absolutely LOVED IT!!!! Highly recommend!
Mia: First time poster, long time follower. hahah. But I felt compelled to write. Earlier this week you posted a pre-order that I’ve had sitting on my Kindle for weeks from Netgalley and finally had the courage to read it. It’s called Pull Me Close. I don’t like books with damaged h’s because they make me cry and I hate to cry. Give me a Rom Com anytime of the week, please. Anyway. Christ on a cracker! It was the best book I’ve read this year. I swear, I was reading about myself most of the time. The h has social anxiety and hasn’t left her house but the events are based on like…current things. It’s one of those books you shouldn’t know too much about before going into it. So don’t say anything if you read it! Anyway, it was gooood. now I have a book hangover and am going to grab my usual Rom Com (A little Penny Reid for me). *sniffle sniffle*
Amy: Hi Mia!!! *big welcome hug* Don’t be a stranger around here. And thanks for the heads up on Pull Me Close…whenever I hear we shouldn’t know too much before going into a book, it’s like catnip for me.
