Blurb:
No bets. No fake relationships. Just a very real one that has to be kept under wraps.

Seventeen-year-old Melissa wants to dye her hair cotton candy pink and focus on her ukulele instead of Physics. But she can’t. As the daughter of a Catholic school principal, living up to her model student image 24/7 is a must. Something’s about to give under all the pressure. She only hopes it isn’t her.

Getting involved with a troublemaking basketball player is the last possible thing she needs…

Lance is used to getting what he wants. With a pretty face he uses to full advantage and his role as co-captain of the basketball team, the easy way is the only way he’s ever known. Until the day he notices the prim Melissa he’s known forever is actually hot and decides to ask her out. He has no idea he’s about to learn the lesson of a lifetime.

Not getting what he wants might exactly be what he needs.

Zodiac Recommendations #2 Pisces Books

Hi everyone, and welcome to my second week of Zodiac Book Recommendations. Every week I’m recommending books for one of the zodiac signs, starting with Aquarius and ending with Capricorn, after chronological order. This week I have three book recommendations for Pisces.

We are talking about Pisces this week, the zodiac sign that embraces the element water. The Pisces have their strengths and weaknesses, which can be read about in the graphics, and with these qualities in mind I have tried to find suitable book recommendations. I hope that whoever you are, whether you are a Pisces yourself or someone who knows a Pisces, you’ll enjoy these book recommendations.

The books I’ve chosen are ones that I think celebrate Pisces qualities in one way or another. I hope you’ll love these books, and maybe even find a new favorite. Check out my book recommendations for the other zodiac signs too. Next week I’m doing Aries, see previous recommendations here.

Cover Reveal for Crawdad by Lisa Cresswell

You can read the book synopsis for Crawdad here:

Seventeen-year-old Jamil Ramos grew up on Alabama’s Gulf Coast believing his mom, Loretta, was his only living relative. She put a trumpet in his hands as a toddler and sparked his love of jazz. But when Loretta drops a bomb on Jamil from her deathbed- she’s not his mama and his daddy is still alive, living in Charleston, S.C. – his world is turned upside down.

Now, with the only mama he’s ever known gone and the Loyola University trumpet audition less than a week away, Jamil has trouble feeling his music. When his band teacher tells him to get it together, Jamil decides to hitchhike to South Carolina over to find his father and get his questions answered. All he has is a name –Leon Ramos.

Jamil relies on the kindness of the strangers he meets-a gay teen kicked out of his home, a runaway prostitute, and a street musician-as he makes his way across Florida and Georgia trying to avoid the cops along the way. But when Jamil is robbed of his most prized possession, his trumpet, his plans go anywhere but where he’d hoped. That trumpet was supposed to be his ticket for a scholarship, the only way to college his mama could give him. Lost and alone without it, Jamil wonders if finding his father is worth risking his future.

What do you think about the cover? Do you want to read this book as much as I do when it comes out?

Forget Me Always by Sara Wolf Blog Tour

ForgetMeAlwaysTour.png

Welcome to the blog tour for Forget Me Always by Sara Wolf, the second book in the Lovely Vicious series. This a book spotlight where you can read more about the book and the series, and there’s also a giveaway at the end.

forget-me-always-coverForget Me Always (Lovely Vicious #2) by Sara Wolf
Date Released: November 1, 2016
Publisher: Entangled Teen

It’s been three years, twenty-five weeks, and five days since Isis Blake fell in love, and if she has it her way, it’ll stretch into infinity. Since then, she’s punched Jack Hunter — her nemesis-turned-maybe-something-more—in the face, survived a brutal attack by her mom’s abusive ex thanks to Jack’s heroics, and then promptly forgotten all about him.

The one bright spot for Isis is Sophia, the ephemeral girl who shares Isis’s hospital stay as well as a murky past with Jack. But as Isis’s memories return, she finds it harder and harder to resist what she felt for Jack, and Jack finds it impossible to stay away from the only girl who’s ever melted the ice around his heart.

As the dark secrets surrounding Sophia emerge, Isis realizes Jack isn’t who she thought he was. He’s dangerous. But when Isis starts receiving terrifying emails from an anonymous source, that danger might be the only thing protecting her from something far more threatening.

Her past.

Love Me Never Cover (1).pngLove Me Never (Lovely Vicious #1) by Sara Wolf
Date Released: April 5, 2016
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance / Dark Comedy
Previously published as Lovely Vicious, this fully revised and updated edition is full of romance, intrigue, and laugh-out-loud moments.

Don’t love your enemy. Declare war on him.

Seventeen-year-old Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, nine weeks, and five days, and after what happened last time, she intends to keep it that way. Since then she’s lost eighty-five pounds, gotten four streaks of purple in her hair, and moved to Buttcrack-of-Nowhere, Ohio, to help her mom escape a bad relationship.

All the girls in her new school want one thing—Jack Hunter, the Ice Prince of East Summit High. Hot as an Armani ad, smart enough to get into Yale, and colder than the Arctic, Jack Hunter’s never gone out with anyone. Sure, people have seen him downtown with beautiful women, but he’s never given high school girls the time of day. Until Isis punches him in the face.

Jack’s met his match. Suddenly everything is a game.

The goal: Make the other beg for mercy.

The game board: East Summit High.

The reward: Something neither of them expected.

Waiting On Wednesday #4 Dead Girls Society by Michelle Krys

galaxyblogwaitingonwednesday1

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. I’m currently anticipating Dead Girls Society by Michelle Krys, it’s a book that looks so amazing and even a little mysterious, which I love.

Krys_9780553508024_jkt_all_r1.inddDead Girls Society by Michelle Krys

Expected publication: November 8, 2016

Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Mystery, Thriller

Add to your To Be Read shelf on Goodreads.

Pre-order on Amazon or Book Depository.

Synopsis: You are cordially invited to participate in a game of thrills and dares. Tell no one, and come alone. If you dare.

Hope is sick of everyone treating her like she’s breakable. Sure, she has cystic fibrosis (basically really bad lungs), but she’s tired of being babied by her mom and her overprotective best friend, Ethan, not to mention worrying about paying for her expensive medication and how she’s going to afford college. And she’s bored with life in her run-down New Orleans suburb.

When an invitation arrives from a mysterious group that calls itself the Society, Hope jumps at the chance for some excitement. This could be her ticket out. All she has to do is complete a few dares and she might win some real money.

But the Society isn’t all it seems . . . and soon Hope finds that playing the game isn’t a choice—it’s a requirement.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday? Are you also waiting for Dead Girls Society?

Moody Book Monday #4 All Good Things Come in Threes

moodybookmonday4

It’s universally agreed that Monday is the worst day of the week. We’d all rather just skip Monday and start the week on Tuesday. That’s why Book Babbles and Blues and Olivia Chanel clasped their hands together and created Moody Book Monday. Even though Mondays suck, books don’t and we can still make Monday a little better by blogging about our favorite bookish stuff. We will talk about our favorite recommendations, make lists and ramble away about things going on in the book world. However, there’s more: Moody Book Monday is also all about guest posts! So I, Amy, will be uploading my post on Olivia’s blog and vice versa and you can participate too. Hit up a collaboration exchange with your favorite blog, or if you want to join our little exchange, leave a comment or hit us up with an email. Let’s all try to make Monday a little better, yeah?


Hi guys!

It’s that time again: Moody Book Monday. This week Olivia came up with an idea that I immediately said yes to and that is that all good things come in threes: pick three characters, three things they’d bring to a deserted island and three people they’d want with them. I had a lot of fun thinking on this one and I like what I’ve decided on. Hope you do too, enjoy!

1. My first character is my number one book boyfriend and husband: Adrian Ivashkov. I’m sad I’m sending him to a deserted island, but at least my babe won’t be alone since I can send three characters with him. But I’ll get to those in a bit, first the three things he’d bring with them. Hopefully Sydney will have rubbed off on him and he’ll be smart enough to bring some things that are actually helpful. So first I’m gonna go with rope, because that can be handy for many things. The second item will be a book about something like How To Survive A Deserted Island or This Is How You Build A Raft. And the last thing is hair gel. Because he’s still Adrian, after all. And then now the people he’d bring along! The first one is, of course, the love of his life Sydney Sage, because I can’t bear to break the two of them up and because Sydney is crazy smart and would find a way to get off the island. The second character is Eddie Castile, because he’s strong, smart and knows how to fight. Might get in handy on an island of which you don’t know it’s dangers. The third and last character I’m sending along is Declan. And if you’ve read The Ruby Circle, you will know why.

2. My second character has got to be… Will Herondale. The three things he’ll bring to the island are his stele (because a shadowhunter can’t be without), a seraph blade (what if you come across demons?) and, knowing William, a good book. Probably A Tale of Two Cities to appease Tessa. Which brings me to the three people he’d bring along: of course he’s going to bring Tessa. Then the two of them can read A Tale Of Two Cities together when they need some alone time. The second person of course has to be Jem. Ya can’t separate parabatai. Ya just can’t. And the last person Will is going to take along is Cecily. Because brotherly love and because Cecily loves adventure.

3. My third and last character that I’m sending to a desert island is Gwendolyn Shepherd from the Ruby Red trilogy (or Gwyneth as y’all English people call her). I mean, she can time travel, how cool would that be to go back in time.. on a deserted island! Maybe she’ll come across an old tribe or endangered animal. It’d be awesome. Okay back to the task at hand. The three things Gwenny can bring along are: the chronograph, otherwise time travelling will get sucky, her phone (even though that thing is not gonna work and/or will die pretty soon) and a picture of her family (because she’ll miss her mom and her siblings while she’s trying to get off that island). The first person she’d drag along with her is Gideon de Villiers, because ya know they’re lovers and time travelling is kind of boring all alone. The second person is Leslie, because Gwen and Leslie are like the best of friends and Leslie is awesome and funny and she’ll make being stuck on that island a bit better. And the last person, who’s not really a person but more of a demonish ghost, is Xemerius. Because he’s a cute little thing and also quite smart and entertaining. He and Leslie would make a great comedic duo. If only Leslie could see him.

Those are the three characters I’ve picked! Thanks for checking out my post. To see Olivia’s picks, click here to read her post on my blog.
