in Latest Book Releases

HAPPY MONDAY!!! Here are a few new books (early!) to hold us over until tomorrow (and OMG tomorrow is going to be a BIG release day). Quite a few of my favorite authors will be on there!! Kristen Ashley, Meghan March, Sarah J. Maas, Rachel Higginson, and more. ;) I’ll be adding more throughout the day as they become available.

But first, let’s play THREE THINGS!

  1. I can’t wait to start working on tomorrow’s big new release list. I wonder who else I’m going to discover (I love book-treasures!!). P.S. Speaking of which, I read one this weekend, that’s coming out in a couple of weeks by Devney Perry (Tragic (Lark Cove Book 3) and it was really good!! AND it had a huge “OH NO HE DIDN’T MOMENT” that had me feeling all sorts of fury! Review coming soon.
  2. I had “Egg Foo Young” yesterday for the first time (it’s Keto if you don’t have the sauce that comes with it) and OMG IT WAS DELICIOUS and so fully loaded in meat and veggies. I felt like I had died and gone to Heaven. It’s so fun, the things you discover when you can’t go for your old standbys. I’ve been missing out!
  3. My new favorite coffee is Lavazza Classico Ground Coffee Blend, Medium Roast. WOW!!! It is …. well I dunno. I’m not a coffee connoisseur or nothing, so describing it is hard but it’s just so yummy!! Rich and full, and with half and half, and my Swerve Sweetener (it’s an Erythritol sugar substitute) it is the best way to wake up! In fact, I hear my coffee maker beeping at me now. COFFEE’S ON!! :D


  • One Wild Ride: A Hollywood Chronicles Stand- Alone Novel by A.L. Jackson & Rebecca Shea <— FAMOUS HOLLYWOOD ACTOR ALERT!!! And it CAN be read as a standalone!! “Elle Ward, daughter of Hollywood’s hottest director, has sworn off actors for life. She knows their games and she refuses to play them. That is until the day she collides with one of LA’s most promising actors…”
  • Cards of Love – Nine of Swords by Bella Love-Wins <— HE WAS HIRED TO KEEP HER SELF AND NOW SHE’S PREGNANT… “…the second I see my newest client, I know I’m in trouble. The pain in her eyes, her sinful body, those sky-high, take-me-hard, spiked heels I can’t ignore. In one night, we share more than I thought possible. Our secrets. Our torments. Her bed. I never expected she’d give me so much more. Until I find out she’s having my baby...”
  • Semi-Obsessed: (Harper Hall Investigations book 5.5) by Isabel Jordan <— LAURA JUST READ IT!!
Laura: Isabel Jordan’s new release, Semi-Obsessed, is filled with witty dialogue that made me shriek out loud with laughter. Perfect way to spend a Sunday morning.
Jan: I can understand some people not wanting to read Prodigal Son till all 4 parts are out. But I haven’t got that much self-restraint. LOL. I’m starting it tomorrow :D



For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free audiobooks deal —>

  • AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans all of your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!

Cheryl October 22, 2018 at 6:57 AM

Maryse, I’ll have to try that coffee, although I do like a dark roast usually. Think I have become immune to coffee. ;)

Now off to work…

Jenn October 22, 2018 at 7:10 AM

Good Morning!

Maryse-I am looking forward the Rachel Higginson book “Trailer Park Heaart” still have not read a Kristin Ashley book so it’s hard to get excited when I don’t know what I am missing. :-) I think when I do read one you will all hear a big *thud* :-)

Jenn October 22, 2018 at 7:30 AM

Oh and three things….
1-I don’t normally watch TV as in the spare time that I do have I rather read…but my hubs asked me to watch “The Haunting of House Hill” on Netflix and holy hell it is scaring the bejesus out of me but I can’t stop watching.

2-I made chicken noodle casserole yesterday and cheated as I bought rotisserie chickens at the store and it was so much better as I normally cook boneless chicken breast and cut them up in it.

3-Gave one of my furbabies a bath yesterday…I can only do Mia as Sadie takes both me and my hubs and getting him to do anything…well let’s just say it’s a struggle and I absolutely refuse to take them anywhere to have it done so hopefully tonight I can get him to help.

Maryse October 22, 2018 at 7:36 AM

Good morning Jenn!!!

YESSSSS. As soon as it’s live, that’s the one I’m reading. :D We’ll buddy read??!

Maryse October 22, 2018 at 7:41 AM

Oh and The Haunting of Hill House is phenomenal. I’m only on episode 5 right now ’cause I mostly read, but I will be catching up tonight as I put together our new release list. :D !!!

Maryse October 22, 2018 at 7:41 AM

Have a good day at work Cheryl!!! :D I think they do have a dark roast too. It’s so SO good.

Jenn October 22, 2018 at 7:56 AM

Maryse-Yes absolutely will BR with you :-) and we only watched episode 1 and 2 last night. We are going to try to fit in two more tonight. It’s crazy I only will watch it when it’s dark outside; so yes apparently I like to be scared to death watching TV shows and have my heart ripped out in books.:-)

R. Renee October 22, 2018 at 8:10 AM

1. I made fried cauliflower “rice” this weekend and it’s my new obsession! Maryse have you done this yet? I’m really thinking roasted sesame seeds are the key to greatness!!

2. I’m off to Love N. Vegas in T-minus 4 days and counting!

3. I’m part of a new Goodreads group started by Adriana Locke that’s launching today! It’s called Romance Retreat and it has loads of romance-y book goodness including sales, giveaways, games, etc. Come check it out with me!

Maryse October 22, 2018 at 8:28 AM

R absolutely YES!! I LOVE it. I use it as a base for so many meat/gravy meals and it works!!! A good thing I love cauliflower anyway, but this is perfect. Absorbs soy sauce really well, too!

R. Renee October 22, 2018 at 8:35 AM

Yes! I do too and I’m good with the cauliflower taste most of the time, but the soy sauce really makes it taste more like rice! And it isn’t mushy like I expected it would be! Try the sesame seeds if you haven’t yet. I toss them in when I’m scrambling the egg, after the egg has some shape so I can toast the seeds on the side.

bev October 22, 2018 at 8:51 AM

1. I love Levon Helm’s voice. Just love it.

2. 27% into Dark Desires. It’s ok but wish it was more gothic.

3. Been thinking of closing my GR account. I’m never on it anymore.

bev October 22, 2018 at 9:21 AM

I’ve only seen this movie once but every time I hear this song, Tiny Dancer, this scene pops into my head.

Leslie M October 22, 2018 at 9:21 AM

1, Close Goodreads account? Blasphemy! How would you keep track of your books??? I have anxiety just thinking about a life without Goodreads.

2, I am eating a sandwich. I don’t care if it’s too early for lunch (10:20 a.m) as I didn’t have breakfast.

3, Got 4 hours sleep last night and had early a.m. eye doc appt so I’m extra crabby this Monday a.m. I need some glitter. Grey??

bev October 22, 2018 at 9:24 AM

Lol. I’ve only been on GR for a couple years, but a reader for decades . Idk. Something to think about. I have probably been on it like 4/5 times in the last 6 months. Or at least that’s what it feels like.

Tasha J October 22, 2018 at 10:42 AM

1. But what if we do another Christmas exchange or something? Then what will you do?

2. Jenn hasn’t read Kristen Ashley?!! ANY of her books? I started with Motorcyle Man, myself. You could start there. Also, I used to refuse to bring my dogs anywhere for grooming (Bc they didn’t need cuts and it felt like a waste of $$). But, they do nails and anal glands and mine actually needs his expressed or we have problems and pay even more $$. And, bonus, no extra cleaning after. ;)

3. I shall check out this Rachel Higginson book, but also- Sarah J Maas!!! I must read this one ASAP!

4. I want to watch Hill House. And finish Tru Blood (I’m only at the beginning of season 3). But there’s no time to be had over here. Boo!! Also, my Momma’s treating me to a day of a housekeeper Bc I don’t even have time for that.

Maryse October 22, 2018 at 11:51 AM

Me too bev.

Tessa October 22, 2018 at 12:32 PM

1. GR works for me because I’ll have read something and then wonder if I should buy it because I the cover has changed. It happened to me all the time before GR. *shrugs*

2. How am I supposed to deal with a chocolate craving when I can’t have chocolate. The sugar-free stuff isn’t working to get rid of it. So… I ate some of little dude’s ice cream, Moose Tracks. lol

3. All my games are now celebrating Halloween! YAY!

Maryse, does Swerve taste better than Truvia? Truvia isn’t exactly the best flavor. It’s not bad like equal or sweet-n-low in flavor, but truthfully, Splenda tastes better.

DG October 22, 2018 at 1:23 PM

My three things…

1. So excited for tomorrow…a new K.A. book plus cake! Or maybe cupcakes…it will be one of the other!
2. I am still decorating for fall but really wish I was putting up my tree….
3. In disbelief that Jenn has not read any K.A. books! Like wow! I think Motorcycle Man was my first but I love Sweet Dreams too! Tate has it going on….but Tack is nothing to sneeze at either…

D.G. October 22, 2018 at 5:29 PM

Maryse – The Day the Jerk Started Falling by Max Monroe release date October 25th

bev October 22, 2018 at 8:38 PM

Tasha, Tessa, R look.
Stars Hallow, Neptune, and Hogsmeade.

R. Renee October 22, 2018 at 8:40 PM


Tasha J October 22, 2018 at 9:32 PM

I love those! The winter Stars Hollow would be pretty in my bedroom. I have no room for more on my walls. But, how cool! And the Seabrook, very cool. How awesome would it be it there was one of the Night Court? Or, hmm…like, “stay gold, pony boy”- the scene for that. Haha
The small hockey town in Fredrik Bachman’s Beartown. I can think of so many, I’m sure.

R. Renee October 22, 2018 at 9:50 PM

If there was a Sunnydale it would be mine!

bev October 22, 2018 at 9:51 PM

I am tempted. I really like the vintage feel.

Amy October 22, 2018 at 10:02 PM

I’m soooooo late to things today, but I still wanna play three things. Can I? Pretty, pretty please??

1. I am making garlic butter chicken and zoodles tomorrow. :D Hubby isn’t thrilled about the zoodles, but he’s eaten bugs before (for work) so I don’t know what he’s complaining about. *giggle*

2. We just finished the first season of Fargo, and now I’m jumping on the Hill House train with you guys! It IS Halloween season, after all. ;)

3. The blurb for Trailer Park Heart has hooked me. Tomorrow, it’s MINE. Er, right after I finish my current read which I will NOT jinx by proclaiming my love for it. Which I did not just do. Proclaim my love for it, that is. Nope. Didn’t say that. *makes zipping motion on lips* Not yet.

Tessa October 22, 2018 at 10:14 PM

I want that Hogsmmead one. Also, look at that Yules Ball one. That would be so pretty to have. I’d kill for a Sunnydale one. OMG, a Buffy poster that looked like that? It could go anywhere and no one would guess. :D

R. Renee October 22, 2018 at 10:16 PM

I have a poster sized poster of Sunnydale in my office “after the apocalypse” with a big crater in the middle. But I’d much rather have a cute little vintage sign!

Amy October 22, 2018 at 10:25 PM

bev…Neptune. Definitely. Love anything with the ocean in it.

I’ve also debated about closing my GR account. Especially when I don’t check in for a loooooong while and then find a bunch of private messages or alerts that someone has commented on a book I’ve started/finished. I feel like a jerk. :?

But I really DO like keeping track of the books I’ve read, since my Kindle app is linked to GR and updates what I’m reading/have finished, and sometimes I actually forget I’ve read a book until I look it up on GR. *shrug* I dunno, we’ll see…

Amy October 22, 2018 at 10:38 PM

Tessa, I added a new song to my iphone playlists and right away thought of you. It has a “Killers” feel to it (love the song, but the video not so much):
