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!
<—IT’S OFFICIAL!!! MIDNIGHT SUN BY STEPHENIE MEYER IS GOING LIVE AUGUST 4th 2020 and it’s up for preorder. What a way to kick off a Monday!!!!!
Oh how we were teased last week over this possibility. Our whole book-world (well, at least us Twilight die-hards) exploded in excitement, and then today… we’re still exploding… though with a ton of relief!! YAY US!!!! And OMG it’s almost 700 pages!??! And how I LOVE this cover. Absolutely perfect in every way, especially symbolically.
Pamela needs our help with this book! OMG I love the sound of this one (if you read the whole question, you’ll have a “whaaaaaaa??” moment like I did. This sounds incredible and maybe heart wrenching.
It brought to mind one of my past favorites that had a crazy heartbreaking twist, but it’s not at all my guess for this, so I won’t say it here.
And while she says she won’t tell us how it ends to avoid spoiling it, there are a few details about the end of the book that seem pretty HUGE, so I spoiler-alerted, just in case. Proceed with caution. 😉
LIST REQUEST TIME!!! 😀 We’re in the mood for something a little different, romance-wise. 😉 Romance yes!! But with a twist.
And this time, it’s (by nature of the trope request) “spoiler-ish” because pretty much right off the bat – for most of these suggestions anyway… we’ll know who the winning guy ends up being.
So unless you don’t mind already knowing a specific outcome in a love story, you might want to skip this one (and not look at the recommendations below).
The Life You Stole (The Life Series Book 2) <— If you haven’t read book #1 yet, skip this review altogether and go to my first review here so my (and our) emotions below don’t spoil stuff for ya!!! Good news? The duet is complete so if this sounds up your alley, you can devour it all in one shot, cliffhanger and all! 😀
<— You guys. This one did a number on me. It was dark and emotional and depressing and hardcore, and yet despite that… “ethereal” quality about it, it felt real. Which is probably why I needed a billion breaks from it while I was reading it. HOLY. MOLY.
Love’s Deception JUST WENT LIVE!!! MARITAL DRAMA ALERT & oooooooooh this one sounds ANGSTY!!!! And lucky us, the author is celebrating her release right here on the blog by sponsoring this week’s newsletter & celebrating her sister’s birthday today, too. P.S. Happy birthday to her sister!! 😀
She’s sent over a Five Fun Facts (actually TEN Fun Facts – 5 about the author and 5 about this book!!) and a giveaway (a surprise book box that even I don’t know what’s inside other than I DO KNOW there’s a signed book in there!!!), plus an excerpt (that got my heart with angst and so much love… and then the author told me something even more exciting!! I asked her if it gets safer from then on, after excerpt and she said oh HECK NO!!! Tee hee!!! ).
