in Latest Book Releases

It’s ready!!! And it’s loaded in awesomeness (and I’ll still be adding throughout the day as more super-bargains or recommendations come in). I also included 6 from yesterday’s “Earlybird list” (4 of ‘em are HUGE HITS already) and are NOT to be missed.

But of course I suggest checking out all of yesterday’s list, too (➔ 16 Earlybird Book Releases) ’cause as I told everyone when I posted it, y’all can consider it my latest TBR list, ’cause I want to read every book on it. It would appear “Monday” is the new “black”. :P

Rebecca:  Omg! I have sooo many books to read !!!! Can’t wait!

Tracie: Oh dang! Sucks me right in with those blurbs!

Donna: I can’t believe how many books I one-clicked today

Wanna know my latest *blurb-jolt* list? THESE are the ones I’m ESPECIALLY excited about reading (12 of ‘em on my mini-squee list this week!!)Black Swan Affair <— We’re buddy-reading and LOVING this one as we speak (plus, it doesn’t look like it ends on a cliffhanger so YAY!!!) Royally Screwed (normal… er… I mean “COMMONER” girl, and a Prince… I love the premise of this one, and the difficult public scrutiny she has to deal with!), A Secret Affair (tons of forbidden love stories in this one – you know we love those – and the proceeds go to The Bookworm Box!!), Hot for Teacher Anthology (ANOTHER forbidden romance anthology!!) Win Some, Lose Some (he’s got Asperger’s, he’s taking care of his disabled sister, and he meets HER… and there’s a lottery ticket. Plus it’s Shay Savage and we love her!), Take Me With You (Horrific nightmare alert!! He stalks her… and then he goes against his own rules and he takes her), Wake to Dream (she has nightmares and then her sister goes missing, and now the dreams have meaning…), Harley & Rose (unrequited love?? She’s in love with her best friend, and he’s marrying someone else), The Right Kind of Guy (What Happens in Vegas) (this is from yesterday’s earlybird list, and I love the premise – she’s an author at a book signing, and she meets her fan’s alphahole <— *snort* brother. LOL!!!), Twisted Palace (<— of COURSE I want to finish this trilogy now that it’s complete. YAY ME!!), Three Simple Words (she’s a book-blogger, and he’s signing in her book store… but she hated his book!) AND!!! Between Here and the Horizon (she desperately needs a job and is offered one with a man that has a terrible mean streak! YIKES!!!!)

Look what else we found!!! :D

P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).

P.P.S. ➔ Follow me (and Pimmie AND Hobbit – my sweet puppies – yep, I have a new addition!) on Instagram? That would be SO cool!!! :D

Amy: Yep, Black Swan Affair is as fun as I thought it would be!! It doesn’t have the level of angst I was hoping for, but there is enough tummy twisting and emotional turmoil to keep me coming back to it. Obviously, because I’m already at 70% and started it less than 24 hours ago. ;)

Jean: I’ve been sucked in by the Black Swan Affair! I am loving it and have no idea where it’s going…..unputdownable for me and now stupid work is getting in the way!”

Leslie: I got the scoop on Black Sean Affair. When the author was asked if it is a standalone, here is her response: “Well…..yes. It was intended to be. I may write about another character in the book however in the future. We’ll see.” I just wanted to make sure it wasn’t a crazy cliffhanger and that we’d be waiting forever for sequels. I hate that.  Gotta one click this one! Its gonna be emotional, but I can’t resist this love triangle.

I confess. The Bound is my other pre-order for the month. I couldn’t resist.

Bev! You recommended Wintersong that doesn’t come out for a few months. I got the free first five chapters and darn you! I want the whole book now!

Fabi October 18, 2016 at 11:43 AM

I have Gemina pre-ordered on hard copy and I got the email that it shipped yesterday. *quietly squees*

I’ve been waiting for Win Some, Lose Some by Shay Savage to come out so that one is mine today.

But otherwise, I think I’m going to hold off until Punk 57 in a few days. That is, if I don’t get sucked in to BSA. Eeek, I really have to finish my ARCs for the month instead of piling up more reading material.

Ela October 18, 2016 at 11:54 AM

Who’s the author of The Bound???

Amy October 18, 2016 at 12:36 PM

Yep, Black Swan Affair is as fun as I thought it would be!! It doesn’t have the level of angst I was hoping for, but there is enough tummy twisting and emotional turmoil to keep me coming back to it. Obviously, because I’m already at 70% and started it less than 24 hours ago. ;)

Punk 57 sounds like it will be great (especially after Grey’s review!) but it may have to wait until after I take a trip to Russia. If a certain angry woman doesn’t deny me entry, that is. *side-eyes bev*

Maryse October 18, 2016 at 12:40 PM

Hi Ela! It’s K.A. Linde. :D

Fabi October 18, 2016 at 12:48 PM

Amy, I don’t know if you read a lot of YA anymore, but I ran across this soon to be release and think it’s going to be great.

The Diabolic
by S. J. Kincaid

Maryse October 18, 2016 at 1:02 PM

Hey you guys!!!

I had a thought. For the SATURDAY before Halloween, I’d love to do one master list of our favorrite SCARY STORIES BUT!!!!

It doesn’t have to be a book. It can be ANYTHING.

Like, your favorite campfire story, or some scary/paranormal/weird/over-coincidence type thing that you experienced…

OR it can be your scariest memory (maybe a creepy nightmare that you had and like telling people) or MAYBE

Your scariest movie that ever saw (and why it freaked you out so bad)…

or a scary scene (movie or book)…

scariest books, of COURSE would be fun to list too.

Like for me… my earliest “scary” memory, was the song “The Purple People Eater”. I was SO young when I first heard that it and while I giggled and danced, I was personally scared by the lyrics. LOL!!!!!!

And like… example! For my one of my aunts? She went to see the Exorcist back when it was first in theaters (in the 70′s) and they had ambulances outside in case of people passing out, and she was TERRIFIED. She went back home… alone into her dark house, and her phone was ringing. So she answered it… picked up the receiver… and said “Hello”? And it continued ringing. <— EEEEP!!!

I mean, your tale can be super-scary, or pretty funny (as long as it has a bit of that dark factor/creep factor/morbidness to it). LOL!

Jennifer October 18, 2016 at 1:13 PM

10/23 is Lost Beauty (Deadly Beauties Live On #3) by C.M. Owens which is Chaz’s book that a lot of people have been waiting on

Ela October 18, 2016 at 2:37 PM

OMG I TOTALLY HAVE A THEORY ABOUT BSA…..not that I’m reading it or anything because I’m totally BR’ing TBH with the real bev and Leslie *blows kisses*….but I read some reviews and am quite disappointed with this BSA!

Jean October 18, 2016 at 2:48 PM

There are just too many…..sigh.

Win Some Lose Some aND Between Here And Now….automatic 1-click!

Fabi, I saw that book today too (The Diabolic)…..looks good!

Oh Maryse, I love that idea! I already thought of something to share!

So Amy, are you going to read TBH with me next so bev will talk to us again? ***I’m feeling squirrelly though especially with all these new releases***

Fabi October 18, 2016 at 3:20 PM

It is so hard to fight off the squirrelies!

Tessa October 18, 2016 at 3:54 PM

Fabi, that looks interesting, though price girl! lol Still looks interesting.

And hey, if Amy is reading a YA next, its the Nick Chronicles! :P

Nancy Parken October 18, 2016 at 4:05 PM

My Goodness!! This is quite a list!!!

Fabi October 18, 2016 at 4:08 PM

Would you believe I’m behind on the Nick Chronicles. I’m like 1.5 books behind in the series. And the movie is coming out – or er, being made or something.

Fabi October 18, 2016 at 4:11 PM

I love the cover of The Diabolic. It’s wicked!

Jean October 18, 2016 at 4:34 PM

Yep I love it too Fabi! Not to sound stupid, but what are the Nick Chronicles? I haven’t heard you guys talk about it before.

Jan October 18, 2016 at 4:35 PM

Speaking of good covers, I love the cover of Between Here and The Horizon. Beautiful.

Fabi October 18, 2016 at 4:40 PM

It’s the Chronicles of Nick YA spin off series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, based on her Dark Hunter PNR series.

Grey October 18, 2016 at 4:42 PM

A Secret Affair…. I reviewed this one as an ARC too. 7 forbidden love novellas… HOT! The taboo naughtiness will set your kindle on fire!

Leslie M October 18, 2016 at 5:30 PM

Guys…you do realize that just because all these new shinies came out today, that you don’t have to actually READ them all today right?? They are not going to spoil like expired milk. Hee hee

With that said, Amy join us in the Russia blankie fort.

Anyone who wants to join in the Bronze Horseman buddy read, please do, I need as much support as I can get.

bev October 18, 2016 at 7:08 PM

Tessa, so Wintersong looks good? 5 chapters is a lot. I read that blurb and I thought Tessa and MichelleS. Good cover too.

bev October 18, 2016 at 7:17 PM

Harlequin has all of their books on sale for 199 @ Amazon.

Nay October 18, 2016 at 7:31 PM

Maryse–Great idea for the Halloween/scary stories! I have the perfect one in mind that I remember from my early childhood!

Amy October 18, 2016 at 8:11 PM

Maryse…a while back I told you guys about a haunted apartment hubby and I lived in when we were first married. Maybe you could try and find it? Otherwise I can tell it again…

Fabi…I do sometimes read YA when the mood hits, and The Diabolic looks GOOD. That cover is awesome, too. Hey, did you ever read bev’s rec, An Ember In the Ashes? That one was great!

Jean…I’m feeling squirrelly as well. *cringes* It’s just that I TBH is long, and I KNOW it is going to be amazing, and I want to give it my full attention, ya know? We might as well just take up residence in our BR ditchers blankie fort.

Amy October 18, 2016 at 8:18 PM

Tessa…aren’t the Nick Chronicles male POV? Ehhhh, you know how I am with those. :?

I’ll join the Russia blankie fort soon, Leslie…just not sure if y’all will still be there when I do!

I am LOVING some of the covers lately…Take Me With You, Between Here and the Horizon, Harley and Rose, even Win Some Lose Some! Do you think they are listening finally? ;)

Tessa October 18, 2016 at 8:38 PM

It’s YA male POV. Those you do.

Tessa October 18, 2016 at 8:42 PM

Bev, it is good. I saw the price, gulped, and will be getting it when it comes out. Goblin King, too. So it’s a pure coincidence that you recommended it right after I gave up on the other Goblin King book?

R. Renee October 18, 2016 at 8:47 PM

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.

Fabi October 18, 2016 at 8:54 PM

Amy, An Ember in the Ashes is still in my tbr. And I just got my hand slapped because I’m late reviewing one of the ARCs. So, no squirreling for me.

Unless it’s an audio book, I need to stick with the plan for the rest of the month.

Amy October 18, 2016 at 9:05 PM

Fabi…well, when you do get to it you are probably going to LOVE it! I sure did. ;) I’ve been waiting for the price to come down on book 2 (which is how I ended up clicking book 1), but I may just cave and get it before then.

Amy October 18, 2016 at 9:09 PM


*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!! :D

Lisa October 18, 2016 at 9:10 PM

Fabi Im ready to go with a Gemina BR. Just say the word!

Jan that cover, Between Here and The Horizon caught my eye too. No naked and headless torso’s!!

Speaking of naked torso’s…..can’t wait for Max Monroes new one next week.

Fabi October 18, 2016 at 9:15 PM

Lisa, they just shipped it out to me yesterday so it will be a few days until I receive. If you really want to wait to read it together, I’m happy to let you know when I get it.

Tessa, I took the opportunity to also order the newest Nick book since I have those in hardcopy too. :-)

R. Renee October 18, 2016 at 9:15 PM

I loved it so much I just wrote the author. That’s big love.

Jean October 18, 2016 at 9:16 PM

Yep Amy, the length of TBH is taunting me! Curious about Hausfraus now too (downloaded it a long time ago), but isn’t that one long too?

Amy October 18, 2016 at 9:18 PM

R…you know I’m totally doing a housewife happy dance right now, don’t you? :P

Tessa…out of all the YA PNR I’ve read, I don’t think I have read any which were in the male POV (but I would have to double check). Hey, there’s a first for everything though!

Amy October 18, 2016 at 9:20 PM

Jean, I think it’s less than half of what…*peeks around for jilted buddy readers*…the “other” book is.

It’s heavy. It will MESS with you. But that’s why I loved it so much. ;)

R. Renee October 18, 2016 at 9:22 PM

Jean, it isn’t long. It’s sitting on my desk on top of Thoughtless, and thickness wise, it’s like half of that. 320 pages. But you can’t/shouldn’t read it fast. It’s intense and you go down the rabbit hole right along with the h.

R. Renee October 18, 2016 at 9:31 PM

She wrote me back! Very sweet and very gracious and she said to tell Amy THANK YOU!! :D

R. Renee October 18, 2016 at 9:32 PM

Oh Jean it’s WAY less than that. It’s one of the thinnest books on my shelf.

R. Renee October 18, 2016 at 9:36 PM

Oh, and Amy, she said this about the floral cover I HAD to have: “If you stare at it from a distance it’s an anatomical heart. The red flower is Anna and all the others are the men… And the wee blooms are the babies.”

Amy October 18, 2016 at 9:42 PM

Good lord…I’m gonna lose my sh!t all over again because of that book…

Going to look at the cover again…and I need to write and say thank YOU to HER!!

Fabi October 18, 2016 at 9:52 PM

R that was a really fast response, especially for a book that’s been out a while. Super nice!

R. Renee October 18, 2016 at 9:54 PM

Fabi, yes, she responded within minutes. And she’s in Texas ;)

Megan October 18, 2016 at 10:05 PM

Hi Maryse! Do you know what is going on with Pamela Ann’s release of Damaged? Every time it is about to be released, it’s cancelled!

Lindsay October 18, 2016 at 10:39 PM

Patchwhore by Kim Jones just Price-dropped to .99. Anyone read this yet?

Niki October 19, 2016 at 12:12 AM

Thanks Lindsay!! I wanted to get this book and I’m glad I waited!!

Going to start Twisted Palace tonight!!

Here is some awesome Others news I saw today:

Lisa October 19, 2016 at 12:37 AM

Lindsay. Reading Patchwhore now but only just started so hard to tell if its going to grab me.
Pretty much straight into a seedy tryst with a total stranger in a public tiolet in chapter one so Im wondering how much Im going to be able to relate to this girl. :(

Lisa October 19, 2016 at 12:40 AM

That floral heart cover is gorgeous R. I only got the front of a white shirt and a glimpse if boobs on the kindle cover for Hausfrau. :(

R. Renee October 19, 2016 at 12:52 AM

I was on a mission to find this one Lisa. I got a hardcover at an independently owned online bookstore. It came signed! I had no idea! And it was only $10 US. I’m a cover junkie when it comes to hard copies!

Lisa October 19, 2016 at 1:05 AM

Yes R, that is something I do miss about kindle, the artwork and beauty of s physical book. I have a dpecial edition copy of Time Travellers Wife that has pink pages and a pink cover. And my hard copy of The Night Circus has beautiful art inside the covers.

I feel the same about downloadable music compared to how exciting it was to buy vinyl records with all the ‘story’ wrap into the cover art and pull out sleeves. It gave artists another dimension to express themselves and tell a story.

R. Renee October 19, 2016 at 1:16 AM

If it’s one of my favorite writers, I’ll usually buy a hard copy. Or if the kindle price is close to the hard copy price, I’ll buy the hard copy. We’re the same with records too. My husband has been on a classic rock frenzy lately buying every record he can think of! I’m a big Doors fan, but I’m having to succumb to all classic rock these days.

marina October 19, 2016 at 1:23 PM

Hi Maryse, I don’t think I see C.D. Reiss’ Marriage Games on this list of pre-orders. It releases next week, Oct. 25, and it’s the first in a duet. As with all CD Reiss books, I’m sure it will be MIND-BENDINGLY good. I cannot wait!! As with all her books when they release… every other book will have to bump down on the list. So many good books out right now!! Just finished Black Swan Affair. Loved it. Definitely hard to put down.

Lisa Aiello October 19, 2016 at 1:23 PM

Away From The Dark is phenomenal so far. I have been biting my nails…and I’m not even 40% in. And…I hear from those in my author chat group that they finished the book and were pissed (in a good way), can’t stop thinking about it, and they need to vent. I can’t read fast enough!!! I truly wish I could absorb books through osmosis and just sit in the afterglow sometimes…just so I could get more in!!

Nay October 19, 2016 at 1:43 PM

Marina, Glad to hear you loved BSA! I’m now at 40% and am also loving it. How is everyone else doing with it?

Jean October 19, 2016 at 1:49 PM

I’m at 85%……my head is spinning!

Nay October 19, 2016 at 1:51 PM

Oh nooo, I’ve got to get moving on it!

Nay October 19, 2016 at 2:31 PM

OK, so at 44% on BSA, I think I’ve changed my mind about it being predictable! lol

Ela October 19, 2016 at 2:44 PM

Not that I’m reading BSA or anything, because I’m BR’ing with bev and Leslie….but I do believe it’s pretty ANNOYING!

Leslie M October 19, 2016 at 4:15 PM

Lisa & R, I am exact opposite of you guys. I LOVE not having to store (and dust and remember where I put) books, movies & music. In fact, I donated ALL my paper romance books to my library. Only paper I like is reference books, like cookbooks.

R. Renee October 19, 2016 at 4:38 PM

I buy most of my books digitally, but I love having favorites and really cool ones in stacks in my office. And I’m lucky, my dad built the house we live in and converted almost unusable attic space into a “library” which is really just a walkway with a wall of shelves. But don’t touch them our you may die of dust inhalation!

Nay October 19, 2016 at 5:50 PM

OMG! Am I the only one that’s noticed that there’s a blankie fort in BSA? Or had it been mentioned and I just missed it??

DG did you trip and fall on your keyboard?

R. Renee October 19, 2016 at 9:03 PM

Dang it’s quiet tonight. Is everyone hiding from bev? I’m having a Hausfrau bookhangover something fierce. Thanks for that Amy.

D.G. October 19, 2016 at 9:56 PM

LOL…miss you guys!!! Every so often I have to have a brief name change and the computer acts up…posted twice that it disappeared into space!

D.G. October 19, 2016 at 10:00 PM

Just got to say that I started Between Here and the Horizon…OMG!!! Couple chapters in and I was like …WTF! Definitely good…definitely not what I was expecting…I mean the blurb does not prepare you for what happens several chapters in! CRAZY different! But I am ALL IN!

Fabi October 19, 2016 at 10:01 PM

Who was it that was asking for audio books with female and male narrators? Please don’t make me scroll up to look. lol

I bought Dirty English from Audible today and it’s narrated by Summer Morton and John Hartley. She is a great narrator and he has a sexy English accent. I’ve only just now started it but I can already tell it’s going to be fantastic.

R. Renee October 19, 2016 at 10:02 PM

Fabi it was Nay.

D.G. October 19, 2016 at 10:02 PM

Lindsay – I read Patchwhore and LOVED it! It had its funny moments…nothing better than a woman scorned…and set on revenge!!! Really enjoyed it!

Fabi October 19, 2016 at 10:05 PM

Thanks R. There you go Nay. And that book has tons of excellent ratings. I think its been in my top ten tbr for probably a year now.

Leslie M October 20, 2016 at 6:54 AM

Fabi, I absolutely adore audiobooks but of course my enjoyment is contingent on the narrator voice. I find I get annoyed when male narrator tries to do female voice. It’s like nails on a chalkboard to me. Seems like most female narrators can get the male voice ok though. Weird! I do love it when male voice is sexy and good accent! *Swoon* Too bad I already read ebook of Dirty English.

They really need to have Sam Heughan (actor who plays Jamie Fraser on Outlander) narrate books. He has sexiest voice/accent on the planet.

Lisa Aiello October 20, 2016 at 8:09 AM

Holy Heckballs! Finished Away from the Dark (book 2 of Into the Light) last night, and I’m still processing it. What an amazing little duet series that was. So, should I start Black Swan Affair next, or Between Here And The Horizon? I’m feeling something totally angsty…what do ya’ll recommend?

Jean October 20, 2016 at 8:24 AM

Black Swan Affair! Finished it last night and freaking loved it!

Fabi October 20, 2016 at 8:44 AM

Leslie, now we’re opposites hahaha. If there’s a single narrator I prefer a male voice. Of course, a good narrator is good regardless of gender, but for the others, some female voices get too screechy or high pitched for me.

Maryse October 20, 2016 at 8:52 AM

Thank you Jean!!!

Grey October 20, 2016 at 10:12 AM

Lisa, I’m gonna get Away from the Dark with my lunch money, haha! That’s what I’m calling tomorrow’s payday. Can’t wait. I say read A Secret Affair today… And Punk 57 tomorrow… LOL!

Maryse, do you really want me post my review again??

Nay October 20, 2016 at 10:21 AM

Lisa–I agree with Jean. I just finished BSA and loved it too!

Fabi–thanks! I’ll have to check it out.

Leslie–I’m the same way. I love to listen to audiobooks, but my faves are where the man does ALL the male voices and the woman all the female voices, but unfortunately, those audiobooks are few and far between. All but the first few of the Fever books are done that way, and there’s a mystery series I listened to that was done that way and I loved it.

As long as both narrators are good actors as well as readers, this type of true dual narration sounds like you’re listening to a movie or a play because you don’t have to deal with the man or the woman trying to unnaturally raise or lower their voices.

Tessa October 20, 2016 at 10:56 AM

I was lurking yesterday. Guild wars 2 just had their Halloween patch on Tuesday so I’m having fun playing. I am tempted by Patchwhore. I love funny. I just finished Betting in the Wrong Brother by Catheryn Fox, which was funny and sweet. Not super memorable, but it kept me smiling while my computer was getting fixed.

“We can’t help you if you don’t help us help you.” ~ Three Two One by JA Huss

Man, this one is messing with me. *shakes head*

Lisa Aiello October 20, 2016 at 12:47 PM

I gotta ask – and hope I don’t sound dumb. What’s FLT????

Fabi October 20, 2016 at 12:53 PM

Lisa, FLT (First Line Thursday) is a game Bev came up with where we each list the first sentence of the book we are reading on Thursday.

Amy, I love Three Two One !! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Jean, that first line is so lyrical/poetic. Just beautiful.

Amy October 20, 2016 at 12:56 PM

Aw man, Jean…now I’m going to be all alone on bev’s crap list!!!

Black Swan Affair wasn’t all that I hoped it would be…3.5 stars for me. Maybe I was just misled by the title and blurb. Instead of being a love triangle, it was more a story of her trying to move on. So much focus was put on Kael and her trying to fall for him after she married him, and Killian was continually framed as being the a$$hole who married her sister (but still wouldn’t let Maverick go), so I never really fell for Killian and never really had that torn feeling.

BUT! It was a fun ride, and I would recommend it for people who only like to dip their toes in the angsty pool. ;)

Jean October 20, 2016 at 12:57 PM

Lisa, First Line Thursday…’s the first sentence of the book you are currently reading.

Amy! I’m squeeing over your book. I loved 3, 2, 1…..such a unique storyline! I’ll be curious to see how you like it.

Tessa October 20, 2016 at 12:57 PM

*squee over R reading Thoughtless too* Even the first line brings back memories that hurt my heart.

Fabi October 20, 2016 at 12:59 PM

I think we have a huge lovefest going on around here today. Everybody loves everybody else reading the other’s favorite book.

Jean October 20, 2016 at 1:01 PM

I get it Amy (BSA)….I never fell for Killian, but I seriously loved Kael’s devotion.

Fabi, this book is beautiful……the writing is just wow! Sorry to leave you hanging Amy, but there’s still time for you to jump on the bandwagon. No one in the BR has finished (I don’t even think they are half way yet).

Nay October 20, 2016 at 1:08 PM

Tessa–I was thinking the same thing! I was wishing I could read it again for the first time!

Did any of you who loved Thoughtless read Thoughtful (Kellan’s pov)? I listened to it on audiobook and I LOVED it, but I noticed it got mixed reviews from others who loved Thoughtless.

Jean October 20, 2016 at 1:13 PM

Nay, I’ve had Thoughtful for so long and really want to read it. My girlfriend loved it, but I don’t know if I can go through those stomach pains again!

Leslie M October 20, 2016 at 6:54 PM

I’m usually lame with FLT as aps I use to read don’t allow my copy/paste and I’m too lazy to type it out!! But….since I’m reading Bronze Horseman, mine is same as Jean. I’m only at 35%.


Nay, I did see that some Kellan lovers disliked “Thoughtful”, but NOT me. I loved it. Jean, not gonna lie….it was a tough revisiting all that angst…I cried.

Amy October 20, 2016 at 6:55 PM

Damn…Three Two One was good but I need a shot of Jager now.

“ooooh Amy!!!! Oooooh R!!! ooooh Nay!!!” <——– you have NO idea how dirty that sounds to me after what I just read. :P

Amy October 20, 2016 at 6:58 PM

Nay, I read Thoughtful and really liked it. It was more emotional the angsty for me because 1) I already knew what was going to happen and 2) the male POV doesn’t affect me the same way as the female POV.

But it WAS hard reading about his childhood and teenage years and then seeing just how painful Kiera’s actions were for him. :(

Fabi October 20, 2016 at 7:02 PM

LOL Amy, glad you liked 321. It was kind of ‘out there’.

Nay October 20, 2016 at 7:04 PM

Leslie–I saw the same! Not me either though–I gobbled it up! I’d love any book with Kellan and also any book with as much gut-wrenching angst as Thoughless. I think the only thing I’ve read that was even close to affecting me the same way was Avoiding Commitment.

Nay October 20, 2016 at 7:04 PM

lol Amy! That book has menage, correct?

R. Renee October 20, 2016 at 7:05 PM

That’s precisely why I said it that way Amy, *giggle*

R. Renee October 20, 2016 at 7:11 PM

Ha! It has nothing to do with anything other than Kellan just gave her the shirt off his back and she’s sniffing it and I want to sniff it too and apparently the candle world got as far as Drakkar with the whole man scent thing so here we are.

Nay October 20, 2016 at 7:11 PM

I have a nail polish which has a delicious manly scent…it is yummy. I wore it not long after discovering the BDB books (from here, of course), and I kept sniffing my nails and thinking of them. Because I’m a weirdo like that.

Ohhhhh, it’s too long until April. *pout*

Amy October 20, 2016 at 7:35 PM

Fabi…I DID really like it! You’re right, it’s definitely “out there” but it was fun to get pushed outside of my comfort zone. ;)

Yep Nay, it’s a menage book…I pretty much knew that going in, but HOLY MOLY! I didn’t expect it to go THERE!! *snort*

Amy October 20, 2016 at 7:37 PM

Grey…what’s in April?

bev October 20, 2016 at 7:43 PM

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon is 1.99. Seriously good price and a really good read.

Jan October 20, 2016 at 7:51 PM

LOL bev. I had a WTH? moment cos I thought you meant everything was in April, plus there was a book called Everything for 1.99. Then I checked on the book and saw it’s just called Everything, Everything. *snorts at own stupidity*

Jan October 20, 2016 at 7:51 PM

BTW, what IS in April???

Nay October 20, 2016 at 8:04 PM

I’m guessing Grey meant the newest Black Dagger Brotherhood book, The Chosen, that comes out 4/4/17. I can’t wait!!!

Grey October 20, 2016 at 8:28 PM

Yep, April is always BDB month, sorry, got caught up with something there for a bit.

Tessa October 20, 2016 at 9:51 PM

Wait. Tonight is Punk 57 and I’m not done with my book! I’m not even reading it right now! Damn you GW2! Damn my need for virtual candy corn!

I’ve got JR Ward’s ‘other’ book on my TBR. Angel’s Breath. Bk 2 in her CR/ soap/drama series. I really liked Bk 1.

Maryse October 21, 2016 at 9:10 AM

YAY! Thank you bev! I’m adding it to today’s list. :D

Maryse October 21, 2016 at 9:13 AM

Holy moly bev, I just read that blurb and it sounds AMAZING!!!!!

Maryse October 21, 2016 at 9:34 AM

DG THAT JUST MAKES ME SO HAPPY!!!!! :D I want to read that one badly… it’s one on my current TBR list… how’s it going now with it?

Maryse October 21, 2016 at 9:35 AM

I LOVE me a book hangover, R… definitely moving it up my TBR, and I’m officially on it. Maybe even next since I already one clicked it months ago…

Maryse October 21, 2016 at 9:38 AM

I’m on it Amy!! This time I promise!!!! :D

R. Renee October 21, 2016 at 9:39 AM

I’m so excited Maryse! Amy wasn’t kidding. It’s absolutely one of the most well thought out books I’ve ever read. Not just beautifully written, but brilliantly written.

Maryse October 21, 2016 at 9:57 AM

Amy… I am right there with you on Black Swan Affair. It’s been good, but slow going and kind of drama-free considering it was gonna be all out drama-y (sounding). Still, the writing is REALLY good, so I knew I’d finish it absolutely just to see if something crazy happens. I’m in the last 20% and poop is hitting the fan right now.

But up until then, I’ve been able to put it down.

More to come as soon as I finish it. :D

Hi Megan!!

I just posted a “Part Two” of the “Where did they go” post:

and this is one of the only questions I was unable to find an answer to… (as of yet). I will keep researching.
