This week my book is:

Unspoken (Woodlands, #2)

Here’s the Summary From GoodReads:

Whore. Slut. Typhoid Mary.

I’ve been called all these at Central College. One drunken night, one act of irresponsible behavior, and my reputation was ruined. Guys labeled me as easy and girls shied away.  To cope, I stayed away from Central social life and away from Central men, so why is it that my new biology lab partner is so irresistible to me?

He’s everything I shouldn’t want. A former Marine involved in illegal fighting with a quick trigger temper and an easy smile for all the women. His fists aren’t the danger to me, though, it’s his charm. He’s sliding his way into my heart and I’m afraid that he’s going to be the one to break me.

Impulsive. Unthinking. Hot tempered.

I allow instinct to rule my behavior. If it feels good, do it, has been my motto because if I spend too much time thinking, I’ll begin to remember exactly where I came from. At Central College, I’ve got fighting and I’ve got women and I thought I was satisfied until I met her. 

She’s everything I didn’t realize I wanted and the more time I spend with her, the more I want her. But she’s been hurt too much in the past and I don’t want to be the one to break her. I know I should walk away, but I just can’t

I’m actually just starting it today, so this will be a teaser for myself too – here we go:

“I’m just not ready for that kind of hurt, Ellie.” I lightly shook off her grip and traced my finger in the pool of condensation formed from our beer glasses.  My impulse-driven behaviour in the dark of the basement seemed unwise now.

“Don’t be a fatalist.  This could be amazing.”

“How?”

“You could date him, sleep with him, go back onto campus with him on your arm.”

I’ll cut it there, hope you will check it out!

Happy Tuesday!

Monday Musing – I want to read “Into The Still Blue” NOW!

MusingMondays5Hosted by Should Be Reading @ http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/musing-mondays-sept-9/

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits. • Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s). • What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it. • Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us! • Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

————————————

So Today I’m going to MUSE about a book I just saw pop up on Edelweiss today —

That’s Right Guys — “Into The Still Blue” by Veronica Rossi

It’s out on Edelweiss to request for ARC review – WHAT??!!

I almost tumbled out of my chair this morning clicking request it NOW..  To say I’m excited is… less than – I’m psyched for this sequel, how about you guys??

Either way, now I wait – and you all know how it goes with Edelweiss – sometimes I get them and sometimes I don’t. There doesn’t really seem to be any rhyme/reason or logic to it base do what I see, I think it’s all the person who reviews the content that day, but I am REALLY hoping I get this one, this is the first book since “Panic” (which I never got or heard word from) that I’ve really wanted like this and to think I could read it NOW – I would stop what I”m doing this very second and read it cover to cover if it was approved. Seriously – Cannot wait.

The other half of the coin is what I will do if I DON”T get it, I will have to wait until next year, which will seem like forever! So cross your fingers for me and if you love it as much as me, get on there and request it asap!

I’ll put the cover and the synopsis for everyone below – if you have not checked this series out – check it out – Veronica Rossi is amazing and her stories are wonderful – one of my all time favorite series!

Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky, #3)

Summary from GoodReads:

The earth-shattering conclusion to Veronica Rossi’s “masterpiece” Under the Never Sky trilogy and sequel to the New York Times bestselling Through the Ever Night (Examiner.com).

Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it’s time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.

The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together.

Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won’t even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.

Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because Cinder isn’t just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, he’s also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.

In this final book in her stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.

With all that being said – Happy Monday Everyone!

WWW Wednesday – September 4th

WWW_Wednesdays4Hosted by Should Be Reading @ http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/2013/09/04/www-wednesday-sept-4/

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading? • What did you recently finish reading? • What do you think you’ll read next?

———

What Am I Currently Reading?

Alienated (Alienated, #1)“Alienated” By Melissa Landers

Summary From GoodReads:

Interplanetary relations have never been more exciting! The first in a funny, romantic YA sci-fi series.

Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them. 

Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.

Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet…

What Did I Just Finish Reading?

Wait for You (Wait for You, #1)“Wait For You” By J. Lynn

I really enjoyed this book – Review will be up soon so keep checking back!

Summary From GoodReads:

Some things are worth waiting for…

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing…

Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet…

But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for….

What Am I Reading Next?

Louder Than Love“Louder than Love” by Jessica Topper

*Now I have tons of stuff I have gotten approved recently – so this is not 100% guaranteed, also have some blog tour dates coming up so may need to change, but for “this moment” this is my next planned read –

Summary From GoodReads:

In this powerful debut novel, a young librarian grieves the loss of her husband…and discovers a love that defies classification.

It’s been over three years since a train accident made a widow of Katrina Lewis, sending her and her young daughter Abbey back to the suburban town of her youth…the only place that still makes sense. Lauder Lake is the perfect place to hide and heal.

Recluse rocker Adrian “Digger” Graves survived the implosion of his music career, but his muse has long lain dormant. Until Kat hires him to play at her library—not on the basis of his hard rock credentials but rather, because of the obscure kids’ TV jingle he wrote years ago. In a case of mistaken identity, Adrian stumbles into the lives of Kat and her comically lovable daughter.

Using tattoos as a timeline, Adrian unfurls his life for Kat. But as the courtship intensifies, it’s unclear whose past looms larger: the widow’s or the rocker’s. Will their demons ever rest, or will they break these soul mates apart?

————————————–

So that’s it for my WWW Wednesday! Hope you all have a wonderful day!!  And share your WWW’s  – I want to hear what you’re reading, what’s up next, and what did you finish – always looking for great reccommendations!!

Happy Reading!

Alienated (Alienated, #1)I’m reading “Alienated” by Melissa Landers right now

1. Awesome cover – I love this cover art – so beautiful.

2. I haven’t “officially” started yet, but am starting today so here’s my teaser – I’m super excited about this book. It sounds different than anything i’ve read in a long time, hope you will check it out too!

Teaser:

“A hint of wistfulness tugged at the edges of his full mouth, and she felt that same tug deep in her belly like an emotional sympathy pain.  She reached out and plucked a curled brown leaf from it’s branch, then handed it to him.  “Here, a small reminder of home.  And better than the larun I tried to bake.”

 

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

WWW Wednesday – July 3rd

WWW_Wednesdays4Hosted by Should Be Reading @ http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading? • What did you recently finish reading? • What do you think you’ll read next?

—————–

Happy Wednesday Everyone! I hope everyone is excited about the holiday and day off for most of us – I know I am!

So my WWW Wednesday this week is as follows:

1. What am I currently reading?

The Marriage Merger (Marriage to a Billionaire, #4)

So far, enjoying it – but all I’ve seen so far is foreplay – I’m ready for some action here! I’m reading for Probst’s awesome steamy writing!

2. What did I just finish reading?

The Distance Between Us

Loved, Loved this book -great summer read or anytime read! I love stories about young love!! I would def suggest checking this out – my full review is posted on the blog main page if you’re interested..

3. What am I going to read next?

Rule (Marked Men, #1)

I have been doing a large debate on this and I have a ton of books I really want to read right now for reviews.. But this came across and I’m interested enough I think to let it bump someone out of the top spot – so for “right now” this is my next planned read. I love a good bad boy love story! Has anyone read it, love an opinion if you have??

So that’s it folks, my WWW Wednesday share. One thing I plan to do tomorrow on my day off is to take some time and FINALLY really organize my TBR list into something that is manageable and actually plan out my reviews and books to read.. Hopefully if i get it somewhat organized I can keep track of where I’m at on this list vs a large jumble of books I am interested in reading. Oh – I still have the last Crossfire series book sitting in my inbox – I haven’t even read that yet so shame on me! I think that will be after this next read for sure!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Share your WWW with me below with your link or just answer in the comment section – love hearing what you’re reading or thinking about reading, or what you thought of the last book you read!

Kelley
