BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! The Silver Cord BY ANONYMOUS IS LIVE!!!!! So many in our crew went CRAZY for book #1 (The Silver Cage)

Jen: I read The Silver Cage!!! It was absolutely amazing. Breathtaking and heartbreaking at the same time. The writing is exquisite, and the story is so real. So raw. It’s like nothing I’ve read before. I hope to hear your thoughts!

Lisa: The Silver Cage (I’m still all stabby about it – but it was so fantastic!!!!)

Happy NEW RELEASE DAY!!! :D A little over 50 new books today (including that one to the left) and I will be adding more throughout the day as I find them. AND!!  This may be a smaller list (at least so far) BUT quite a few have given me blurb-jolts!

What looks extra exciting to me? That one up there to the left Consumed <— (J.R. WARD!! Enough said), Talkin’ Trash (Lani Lynn Vale’s latest! He’s a football star/biker & they can’t stand each other), NEVERLAND (Eeeeeeep!!! TOTAL BLURB JOLT!! Biggest one of the list… he’s got a creepy stalker obsession with her!!), Off the Map (they’re kidnapped and stranded in the jungle together), and Medicine Man (the recommendation that I received for this one gave the blurb jolt! Amal says: “This book was amazing. Sucked me in! Great level of taboo left me asking “uhm how!!!” Ladies, read it read it!“)

P.S. While you’re here, don’t forget to check out yesterday’s earlybirds, and a few fun posts:

Amal: Just finished Medicine Man and thought to myself who do I tell this story to without them looking at me like I’m some crazy loon!?This book had touched on such an important yet suppressed topic about mental illnesses.

Tasha J October 2, 2018 at 6:42 AM

Oh my, Neverland sounds SO good!!
I’m simultaneously reading 2 books right now. After so long of not reading, it feels amazing. ;)
AND this morning I awoke to my preorder that I didn’t realize was coming just yet, how exciting!!! It’s this 1-

Tasha J October 2, 2018 at 6:44 AM

Also, good morning! Today calls for ICED coffee. Since it probably won’t be warm like this forever, I will drink it up now while I can.

Tasha J October 2, 2018 at 6:54 AM

I think I need to read An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris too. Because my tbr is not long enough yet. :P

Leslie M October 2, 2018 at 7:50 AM

Good morning. *Stretches and yawns* I am so tired. It seems like we are all a bunch of insomniacs around here. Too bad we can’t all meet at Maryse’s for some coffee. ;)

So I think I am still slump-ish. No 4.5 or 5 star reads for me since July. :(

Nay October 2, 2018 at 8:18 AM

Yay, Tasha! And iced coffee sounds wonderful. I think I’ll make some with my NutriBullet.

I can’t believe Consumed is out and I still haven’t read the short stories. I started the first one and it didn’t snag my attention, but I’m not giving up.

I see a new Fae book up there! And it doesn’t appear to be YA (yay!) and it’s been nominated for awards. I’ll definitely be giving it a try.

Leslie–I’m open for another BR anytime!

Tasha J October 2, 2018 at 8:30 AM

Sounds like you need a great book Leslie, have you read Beartown? It’ll knock you in the feels!

R. Renee October 2, 2018 at 8:31 AM

**Attn. Leslie** Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott has a blurb and release date of Oct. 18! ;-)

Amy October 2, 2018 at 8:38 AM

*rubs eyes and yawns* Good morning, ladies…did someone make coffee? Good lord, poor sleep must be contagious because I woke up at least a half dozen times last night. :roll:

Neverland…what the heck?? That guy sounds like all kinds of messed up. Still, I’m intrigued. He can’t be as bad as Aiden from Her Master’s Courtesan, right? *shudders*

bev October 2, 2018 at 8:39 AM

Attn. Leslie.

Watch the psychological thriller with me. It starts tomorrow.

Tessa, I watched the first season of Riverdale.
I loved Jug and Betty. That their names are really Jughead and Jellybean is hilarious.
It was interesting to see the parents. The young cool actors in the 80 & 90s.

Tasha I read the first book in that series loved it.

bev October 2, 2018 at 8:41 AM

Amy, come on. Watch with me.

Remember when you left me in Russia?

Come to Korea.

I went to Alaska with everyone.

Nay October 2, 2018 at 8:41 AM

There are a lot up there catching my attention today. Neverland and ooh, a new ‘stranded’ book: Off the Map. The last ‘stranded on an island’ book I read was a bit of a disappointment; maybe this one will be better. And then I’ve got Medicine Man coming up next. Really looking forward to that one–I love it when I want to read so many at once!

Do any of those interest you, Leslie? A couple of them are kind of short at around 200 pages.

Amy October 2, 2018 at 8:45 AM

Also, I remember the mention of Colleen Hoover’s Verity not long ago but somehow missed the blurb.

Until now.

HOLY. MOLY. *Click!!!* Well, preorder *click* but it’s so mine in December. ;)

Amy October 2, 2018 at 8:46 AM

Alright bev, I’ll watch with you.

There. I said it. And I’ll do it.

Tomorrow, right?

Amy October 2, 2018 at 8:47 AM

Man, it’s not even 7:00 in the morning and I’m already craving Korean BBQ…

Nay October 2, 2018 at 8:54 AM

My husband’s best friend is Korean and has a food kiosk in hubs’ building, so we get authentic Korean food frequently (we got BBQ ribs last Friday) Yum! It’s especially good when his friend’s mom (who was born and raised in Korea) makes it.

bev October 2, 2018 at 8:55 AM



I’m jumping inside.

Next time you have an awesome read I’ll read it without even checking if they die in the end.

Yes, tomorrow. And Thursday. 16 eps in all. BUT if you hate it or just dont care for it, then like our reads , tell me and stop watching.

It’s on Viki and it’s called The Smile Has Left Your Eyes.
I love the lead actors.

This is so us right now.

Theresa silverberg October 2, 2018 at 9:40 AM

Marsye the Jamie McGuire book has been out for a while.

Michele G October 2, 2018 at 9:41 AM

Okay, if insomnia is contagious – I think we’ve all caught it. I of course am wide awake from 3:00 am until it is actually time to get up and go to work! Ugh! I did sneak a little reading in though…:-)

Where are our glitter tossers?? I miss dancing in the glitter…

Neverland is an eye catcher…and a few others. I also saw the post that Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott has an Oct 18 release date (thanks R!). This means I can give myself permission to read the first one now since the second one is on its way…. it was so close, I figured I’d wait…I just need to tuck it in amongst the Elite saga …

Happy Tuesday ladies!

Maryse October 2, 2018 at 9:57 AM

AH yes, that’s right Theresa. It moved up, but I copied and pasted that from my old list. Thank you!

Tasha J October 2, 2018 at 10:19 AM

3am, what’s special about 3am, hmmm? It does always seem to be around that time. And it’s October. Perhaps it’s stronger then…(the spirits) I do happen to remember that from watching those paranormal shows or something.

Grey October 2, 2018 at 11:34 AM

3am is the witching hour. Also known as the time I wake up … Every. Freaking. Day now it seems. But, because this is my happy place. *glitter bomb*

I have to stop my Eagle Elite party. I don’t want to, but I don’t have book 3 and I can’t buy it til Friday… So I don’t know what I aam going to read.

Nay October 2, 2018 at 1:40 PM

I overslept this morning–I woke up at 4am on the dot and turned on the tv. Somehow I managed to go back to sleep for another 80 minutes though.

Jenn October 2, 2018 at 3:12 PM

Grey-I want to read this series anyway so I bought book 3 and will loan it to you-I want you to continue your party girl as I love your updates reading this series. Just need your email address

Tessa October 2, 2018 at 4:01 PM

The Eagle Elite books aren’t loanable, sadly. :( When you all get to Elude, tell me. I’ll buddy read it with you all. That’s where I’m stuck. DO NOT READ BANG BANG UNTIL AFTER ELUDE!

Bev, I’m almost done with the second season. They have their real names but it isn’t spoken of except the dad is FP until the second half of the second season. And then, only Jughead’s name. :)

Jenn October 2, 2018 at 4:17 PM

Tessa it shows I can loan it

Tessa October 2, 2018 at 6:04 PM

Really? Awesome. So only Elect is the exception? Weird.

Jenn October 2, 2018 at 6:38 PM

Maryse-There is a book that I’ve had on my radar and it comes out October 9 and it is “Love, Sincerely, Yours” by Sara Ney& Meghan Quinn. Looks so FUN! Can’t wait! Just wish it was already out as this is the kind of read I need after I finish Tristan/Danika series!

Jan October 2, 2018 at 6:48 PM

Lots of goodies there today but nothing *really* grabbing me. I was intrigued by the Lady’s Guide To Petticoats and Piracy till I saw it’s YA :/ I’m on a non-YA kick (a long one LOL). Damn.

Off The Map maybe??????

*tosses glitter for Michele* *shrugs* Somebody had to do it.

Cheryl October 2, 2018 at 9:37 PM

Finally able to sit down and catch up on posts and comments.

I am unfortunately on the insomnia bandwagon. I think it must be barometric pressure or something seasonally related. Even my dog seems to be in on it. I feel like I toss and turn and then when I feel like I’ve just fallen asleep, she starts whining to go out. Ugh, can’t win.

Finished Stealing Sawyer. Sweet, angsty sports romance. Last book in standalone, interconnected series. Loved all three books!

Nay October 2, 2018 at 10:55 PM

Cheryl–I am having the exact same problem with our dog!

Leslie M October 3, 2018 at 8:04 AM

*tosses Grey’s glitter*

Morning! I am in a better mood today as I at least got some sleep last night.

Still searching for a great read and looking forward to Emma Scott’s latest duet. Michele said she would BR with me. We plan to start book one on the 17th. :)

Hmmmm….Beartown? That one sounds not enough romance for me. But the baseball ones Cheryl mentioned might be good.

I want to try watching Riverdale sometime. I have wicked crush on Luke Perry. Bev, I hope your new series lives up to the hype.

Tasha J October 3, 2018 at 8:19 AM

You never know, it might be just what you need, Leslie. There’s enough going on with the characters I didn’t miss it. Amy! It’s difinitely an Amy book too.
I also watched Riverdale. I liked it a lot. I’ve never read the comics so it was all new to me. I remember when I commented on it someone said Archie drove them nuts and I said I could see how. I like Jug, his Dad, Betty and her Mom. And Cheryl!!

bev October 3, 2018 at 8:55 AM

Thanks, me too. :)

Today is the day!

Fingers crossed.

bev October 3, 2018 at 9:20 AM

It’s called the Smile Has Left Your Eyes and it is on Viki.

You all should give it a shot. It might be fun. Shake it up a bit.

Be careful if you look it up it’s based on a Japanese movie and you don’t want to be spoiled.
The movie title is A Hundred Million Stars from the Sky also what the drama is being called in some places.

Michele G October 3, 2018 at 9:29 AM

I love Riverdale!!

I think I have to take a break from Enforce and move on to Entice. Enforce is really good but it’s basically a re-telling of Elite from other characters’ points of view – - which is good to find out their backgrounds – - but not different enough to keep my attention right now. So… I’m gonna have to move forward and maybe come back to this one down the road. Tessa, we’ll let you know when we get to Elude!

I will be taking a break for Emma Scott’s Beautiful Hearts duet BR with Leslie – - yay can’t wait!!

I have Beartown on my list. I have heard great things from several people! I did enjoy A Man Called Ove by the same author. It is a different read though and I have to be in the right frame of mind for it. I’m mostly a romance junkie but I do like other stuff periodically. It sometimes helps to “clean your palate” so to speak.

Nay October 3, 2018 at 10:57 AM

Leslie and Michele–let me know when y’all start the 2nd book and I’ll read it with you. Are you going to set up a BR for each on GR??

Leslie M October 3, 2018 at 1:03 PM

Yes, Nay…I will do separate threads for each book on GR. I will make announcements too so if others want to join. I know most have already read first one. I wanted to wait til 2nd book out because I don’t want ANY wait time in between. I am antsy like that. ;)

Cheryl October 3, 2018 at 6:24 PM

I’ll do the BR with you too. I’ve been waiting for book 2 before starting book 1. I just love the cover of Bring Down the Stars. :)

Traci b. October 3, 2018 at 6:47 PM

Omg I’m so excited (and scared) to read the Silver Cord!! The Silver Cage gutted me.

Leslie M October 3, 2018 at 7:29 PM

Yay Cheryl!! I thought mostly everyone already read it. This is going to be fun. *tosses more glitter*

Tessa October 3, 2018 at 7:30 PM

Thank you, Michelle G. I seriously need to get over that hump and finally just read it so I can read the rest of the series. (seriously DO NOT READ BANG BANG UNTIL AFTER!)

I am on the last episode of season 2. Though can we point out that Archie is the football/basketball playing rockstar who all the girls think looks hot? O.o It sounds like the beginning of some of the over the top books we get sometimes.

bev October 3, 2018 at 7:37 PM

First ep only 36 % subbed.
Hopefully by the time I get home. I do not feel good want pajamas and bed and drama.

Tessa, I so would if been crushing on Jughead.

Tessa October 3, 2018 at 9:18 PM

lol If they weren’t so young, I’d be crushing on Reggie. (side note, he also has the prettiest lips outside of Sweet Pea, who looks like someone I want to make sure his babysitter is around).

bev October 3, 2018 at 9:43 PM

Lol. Everyone seems so young now.

My show is only 45% subbed. Not sure if I’ll be able to watch tonight. Might have to wait till tomorrow.

I started watching Tru Blood last night. And it was so addicting I stayed up until midnight!

Maryse October 4, 2018 at 10:21 AM

OMG I LOVED True Blood. I was so addicted and Eric was my love. ;)

Maryse October 4, 2018 at 10:23 AM

Jenn both those authors are awesome & hilarious!!! YES!!!!

Maryse October 4, 2018 at 10:24 AM

I’m reading Neverland right now. I’m 50% in and so far it’s pretty good. I’m not yet crazy over it (it’s not QUITE what I expected and was hoping for it to be from that blurb), yet I feel compelled to finish it.

Michele G October 4, 2018 at 12:24 PM

I loved True Blood too!!! I may have to rewatch at some point!! It was awesome! And yes Maryse…Eric was the best …well he was the worst but he looked good doing it :-)

R. Renee October 4, 2018 at 12:30 PM

It’s Lisa’s birthday today!! We need sparkly cocktails!

FLT: “Testosterone and entitlement. The air is thick with both.” Block Shot by Kennedy Ryan.

Still only around 50% because I’ve been busy with beta reading and writing, but I’m hoping to dive back in tonight!

Nay October 4, 2018 at 12:44 PM

Happy Birthday, Lisa!!

I finally finished the series and although book 2 will stand out to me for what it did to me book 3 was the most perfect conclusion to. I still have “happy tears” I just loved it so much. It was everything I hoped for and more! This series as a whole “rocked my world” :)

R. Renee October 4, 2018 at 1:10 PM

Jenn, now you have to go listen to LP’s Lost on You like Amy made me do!

Jenn October 4, 2018 at 2:12 PM

Oh no she didn’t R-but yes I had to do it. Made me cry all over again but it is so perfectly fitting.

Jenn October 4, 2018 at 2:16 PM

Okay so after what my heart has gone through in the last week I have decided on my next read and since I loved the first book so much I am going to read another….and well yeah because this one is Zeke’s book :)

He Isn’t Hard To Spot.

How To Date A Douchebag-The Failing Hours Sara Ney

Cheryl October 4, 2018 at 3:00 PM

Just finished Sweet Insanity. Started a little rough, but then it seemed the author got into her writing stride and I ended up really liking it.

Now to choose a book for FLT…

bev October 4, 2018 at 3:20 PM

I couldn’t watch my drama last night because it hadn’t been fully translated……but tonight it is on!

Amy October 4, 2018 at 3:20 PM

bev! I definitely did NOT forget about my promise to you, and I will be watching it starting tomorrow (they are available to watch then, right?). Yesterday and the day before were just the sh!tiest of all sh!t days, and I ended up getting off work past 9:00 both days after working 13 hours. And today is not looking much better. Seriously, I just want to stick people and collect blood, not deal with all this other sh!t!!!! UGH! I almost turned in my two-week notice more than once.


I am grateful though to have a job. I know that’s more than what a lot of people have.

So. Tomorrow. And I promise never to make you read a death book, LOL!

Amy October 4, 2018 at 3:23 PM

Looking forward to catching up on ALL of the comments when I get another moment to breathe, but I have to say…

JENN!!!! So glad you stuck with it!! Happy tears indeed. :D And that song, Lost on You…ohhhhhh, my heart. It will ALWAYS be T&D’s song.

bev October 4, 2018 at 3:25 PM

I didnt watch yesterday either. Not translated. I try to be patient because the translators on Viki are so good and do it for free.

I had a couple bad days at work too and did the same thing. Had to remind myself I’m thankful for my job, lol.

But I dont have 13 hour days or blood to deal with. And then I get to sit in the grass on a warm autumn day and a walking wobbling marshmallow with a binky just plops down in my lap for hugs….its pretty good. Lol.

Tasha J October 4, 2018 at 4:17 PM

I haven’t seen too much of Eric yet. I’ve definitely forgot a lot about the books though.

bev October 4, 2018 at 6:09 PM

Lafayette is the best. Him and Pam. And Terry.

Amy October 4, 2018 at 6:25 PM

OMG bev, that was the most precious description of your job. Lucky you. ;)

Tessa October 4, 2018 at 6:39 PM

Loved Eric though I stopped watching it in the middle of a certain season.

No FLT currently because I just finished re-reading Fall by Rachel Van Dyken. (Seriously LOVE the seaside series)

bev October 4, 2018 at 7:28 PM

The young woman cut through the crowded New York sidewalk like a knife.

An Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard.

Cheryl October 4, 2018 at 7:36 PM

Ohhh Amy, I’m intrigued by that book’s blurb. Update on how it is!

Still searching for my FLT.

Most days I like my job, but this year already been hit hard with the cold and flu season! Ugh!!

Tessa October 4, 2018 at 7:44 PM

Now I’m at an airport so I can find a book to read next. My niece is getting married on Sat. :D

Tessa October 4, 2018 at 7:45 PM

Oh and for those keeping count, yes, 3 niece’s got married this year.

Tasha J October 4, 2018 at 8:24 PM

Have a safe flight Tessa! And a blast at that wedding. :)

bev October 4, 2018 at 8:27 PM

Have fun. Hope it’s in a fun local.

Cheryl October 4, 2018 at 9:06 PM

In the mood for something funny. Seem to remember someone commenting about a funny book they read and maybe there was a goat??

Leslie M October 4, 2018 at 9:20 PM

Cheryl! Let’s Get Textual was hilarious, sexy AND had a goat!!!!

Leslie M October 4, 2018 at 9:22 PM

Tessa, so funny because as I was reading your post, I was thinking how many freaking neices do you have?? *giggles*

Cheryl October 4, 2018 at 9:29 PM

Leslie. OMG I just started listening to that one earlier today on Hoopla. Must have put it on my hoopla after your previous comment!!!

Now to find something to read…

Nay October 4, 2018 at 10:08 PM

Tessa–I was also wondering how many nieces you have. My niece is getting married *next* Saturday. Hope you have fun!

Leslie M October 4, 2018 at 10:13 PM

Nay October 4, 2018 at 10:33 PM

If any of you are Terrible fans, I just read this on Stacia Kane’s website. It was posted in July, 2018 (the first time she’s posted in almost 2 years):

“I am still working on Downside 6. It’s happening. I promise.”


bev October 4, 2018 at 10:44 PM

I always forget what a chicken I am. It kind of creeped me out.

Maryse October 5, 2018 at 10:48 AM

I love weddings!! Have fun Tessa. :D
