Well… it’s obvious I’m BIG on crazy twisty-turny books that shock the heck outta me. I like ’em “psych-thriller” (as it seems those are the ones I’ve been reviewing lately). But ANY book that leads me in a certain way to believe a certain “thing” (or to deduce it and anticipate it) only to SHOCK me right outta my expectations and/or comfort zone, well… I JUST LOVE that!
The scene that made me slam a book shut… 😉 Ohhhhh we ALLLLLL have them. We can tell our OWN stories about the stories we read, and the reactions we had. The scenes that make us love or hate the book (or both) and NEVER forget it.
And it’s a meme on my Facebook feed that inspired this. I LOVE when that happens.
*slams book shut*
“When I open this again, I’d better not read what I thought I just did.”
Vanessa: So been there!
Maryse: For me, it was “How to Kill a Rock Star” – I lost it at one point and my Book Review reflects that. LOL!!!!
Sherida needed our book help and OMG THIS IS ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE BOOKS IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!! So I’m thrilled that I could “guess it” right off the bat, AND I’m thrilled to share the question with all of you in case you haven’t read this one yet.
This is a MUST READ and an absolutely unforgettable love story.
And while she gives away a spoiler in her question (I will alert before the spoiler) she does not spoil the ending and OMG WHAT AN ENDING!!
I read this book a while ago maybe two or three years about a woman who meets a man.
<— IT’S NOW A SERIES!!!! So many here went CRAZY for this super-angsty sounding one, and now another book is up for preorder! 😀 About the upcoming book, the author says:
This series will be tied together in a unique way—except I can’t tell you why. As you know, I’m the queen of twists and giving that answer would spoil all the fun, so you’re just going to have to wait and see what I have planned for you all.
When We Met has been brewing in my brain for a long time and here’s what I can promise: this book is a complete stand-alone novel (you don’t have to read When Ashes Fall first), you might see some familiar faces from When Ashes Fall throughout the series … and I’m absolutely going to blow your mind AND your hearts with this story.
<— BRAND NEW SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE SERIES and OMG these sound right up our alley. Book #1 will be live in just a couple of days (and the other two are already up for preorder, too). YAY US!! 😀 These sound so poignant, and each one can be read as a standalone and feature some of our favorite tropes!!! Plus… I’m absolutely in love with these book covers (I just want to live in them)!!
The author (Lily Foster) is this week’s Friday Finds newsletter sponsor and she’s introducing her series with Fun Facts, and an ebook giveaway of the first book to FIVE LUCKY COMMENTERS here!
You know what I mean? Do you have an absolute favorite that you wish would make more of our favorites roundups and get more readers hooked on it?
