Happy new release day!! A few on this one that are big on many TBR lists, like The Book of Life: A Novel (All Souls Trilogy) (a long time in the making, and in the waiting, but it’s finally here!), and that one to the left (Tamed (The Tangled Book 3). So many of us LOVED Drew’s dirty mouth and mind. 😉 And Shame on Him by Tara Sivec (this looks like a steamy-fun series!).
Also —> Make sure you take a look at the bargain book/reader recommendations below. Not a huge list like Friday’s (of course), but this one looks extra angsty-good. And I. Mean. ANGSTY. Heartbreaking, and heart-wrenchingly intense.
ALSO!!! —-> Don’t forget to check out last night’s “Early-bird New Releases” post, ’cause I’m getting some great feedback on some of those, too! Like the book about the blogger that makes a point out of discovering a male author’s true identity (and meets him at a book convention) and Kendall Grey’s latest release (mob book). I’m hearing it’s awesome, too! 😀 Oh!! And uber-popular fanfic “Dusty” (at least book #1) has finally been released on Amazon. It’s on that list, too!
And for those of you that missed my Sunday post, it’s my TBR LIST!! 30+ books!!! “My latest TBR List – These just might rock my world, and I want to read them SO bad!” <— Tons of awesome reader comments about which one I should start next, and I’m about to break into it tonight. 😀
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).

BARGAINS (NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order).
- 53 Letters For My Lover by Leylah Attar <— this one sounds ANGSTY!!!! “…the perfect wife, the perfect mother, the perfect daughter. For thirty-three years, she has played by the rules, swallowing secrets, burying dreams and doing whatever it takes to anchor her family. Shayda Hijazi is about to come face to face with the one thing that can rip it all apart, the one thing her heart has always been denied: love.” And then she meets “Troy Heathgate”…. “Now Shayda is flying free and Troy has found the one thing that centers his soul. But even as they beat the odds, Shayda is diagnosed with cancer and faces a painful dilemma. On the one hand is the man who makes her feel gloriously alive and on the other, her children, and a husband ravaged by the past.“
- Puddle Jumping by Amber L. Johnson <— UNCONVENTIONAL LOVE STORY ALERT!! recommended by Cynthia: “This week I read a sweet and amazing book: “Puddle Jumping” by Amber L. Johnson. It’s a short and beautiful love story about a very special boy and an amazing girl that loves him unconditionally. The author writes from the heart and it’s a world she is well versed in.” From the blurb: “Their bond is cut short due to her accident prone nature and they go their separate ways. Years later, they meet again and Lilly learns that there is something special about the boy she once knew, but she has no idea what it all means. And she’s not sure if she’s ready to find out.“
- Wrecking Ball by B.N. Toler <— Nancy found out this one today! Cheryl says: “Finished Wrecking Ball. Well-written, multi-faceted emotional read. Dear God, I need to take a break from these emotional reads or invest in Kleenex stock ;)” From the blurb: “Sometimes all it takes is one moment, fleeting as it may be, to crush what was once strong and indestructible, like a wrecking ball. Now Sophia has left and as she rediscovers herself, Brandon is left holding the shattered pieces of their lives, trying to figure out how to put them back together. “

- Kismet by A.E. Woodward <— Kate recommends this one: “Have you read Kismet by A.E. Woodward yet? Oh my land. All sorts of nasty tears coming from this girl. LOL SOOOO worth it though. An incredible read.” From the blurb: “Her husband, daughter, and unborn baby. . . all gone in a flash. The life that she’d come to know, gone before she ever really got to live it. With a broken heart, she deals the only way she knows how, by shutting it all off. No communicating, no feelings, just pure nothingness.“
