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!
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, 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).
But if you too, are looking for this exact thing, if this is what you’re in the mood for, let’s make a list!!
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!!! ).
Frayed <— GAH!! I just read an amazing book that I was SO into from start to finish. This was a debut novel? GET. OUT. I can’t even believe it. FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. R. Renee came to us screaming “YOU” vibes and boy was she right!!!! But it’s not at ALL the same story. I promise. Though that feel is JUST right.
AND what’s best of all? We BUDDY READ it!!! Group read of freak-outs & reactions!! LOL!
R. Renee: Guys!! This is Layne’s debut psych thriller. Some of you know her from the GR PFM challenge group. I started it this morning and I can’t put it down!! I went in blind so I have no idea what’s coming but at 16% it’s giving me serious YOU vibes!
<— HOLY MOLY PURE FANTASTICNESS ALERT!!!!!!! OMG. You guys were NOT kidding when you told me to read it ASAP so I wouldn’t come across any spoilers and I could experience that jaw-dropping twist blindly. Actually… TWO jaw-dropping twists. I have not been this elated in AGES. Pure steamy book romance at it’s finest, with but then even better. BOOK CLEVERNESS!!!
R. Renee: My readers group is going ballistic over Perfect Strangers by J.T. Geissinger. Thinking of reading it next (whenever I start reading again).
