Week In Books – w/e 27/5/18

Week In Books is a feature where I catch you up on my week in the book world, whether it be new books I’ve one-clicked, books that have caught my eye, book-world news, reviews, and what I’ve been reading that week. I’d love to see your own Week In Books in the comments!

——————-

Well what a crazy few weeks! Between lots of extra hours at work, planning and running a school disco/fun night, rushing a kiddo to the hospital after an allergic reaction to some colour hair spray (all is well now), binge watching the new season of 13 Reasons Why on Netflix (I’m still not over that scene!), the royal wedding (!!!!!) and revisiting my favourite perverts – The Original Sinners by Tiffany Reisz, the blog kind of got left alone, but here I am! Ready to bring you my latest Week (or two) In Books.

I was missing my biggest fictional love, Søren, from Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners series, so I revisited the White Years this weekend and I read The Saint. I finished that yesterday and I started on The King last night. *dreamy sigh* This is my happy place, you guys. Søren, Kingsley, Nora, Nico, all of them! I just love them!!

Mogul by Katy Evans!!! Mogul is a spin-off to Tycoon and I’m really looking forward to diving in. I loved Tycoon (who doesn’t love Katy’s men??) so bring on Mogul!! (Out Tuesday!!)

  • Ugh, my timeline has been filled with all things Trademarks for weeks, and I’m so fed up with it now. Can’t we all just play nice?? Trademarking words is not cool, please stop screwing each other over! Author Tina Reba knows how it should be done, check out her post where she supports other authors and their books which have the same title as one of Reba’s own – E.K. Blair did the same for her novel Crave! That’s how we share words!! Bravo, ladies. And while we’re on the topic of all this TM nonsense, a huge group of amazing authors have come together to create the Cocky Collective – an anthology of Cocky stories about some of our favourite characters! All of the profits from this book are going to a great cause – check out this post from USA Today who share all the details! #FightLikeARomanceReader
  • There’s been lots of new releases these last few weeks, many getting lost in the sea of TM posts, so let’s show them some love! I’m sure I’ve missed loads so let me know any great new releases in the comments! The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas, Piece Of Work by Staci Hart, One Baby Daddy by Meghan Quinn, Rusty Nail by Nazarea Andrews, Jock Row by Sara Ney, Rebel Heart by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, Rough Edge by CD Reiss, Rogue Royalty by Meghan March, Tethered Souls by Beth Flynn, Cocktales (the Cocky Collective).
  • Speaking of new releases – I recently read Tethered Souls by Beth Flynn and I thought it was great! It’s a spin off to the Nine Minutes series which is one of my favourites!!! Tethered Souls is the story of Mimi (Grizz’s daughter) and Christian (Anthony Bear’s son)! You can check out my 4 star review on the blog!
  • SALES!!!! Who doesn’t love a discount? It doesn’t matter if I have hundreds of unread books on my kindle and in my bookcase, I cannot say no to a steal! Check out all these great ones I’ve found. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, Heart Shaped Hack and White Hot Hack by Tracey Garvis Graves, The Out Post by Devney Perry, Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige, Burn With Me by Kristen Proby, Defying Her Mafioso by Terri Anne Browning, Finding Eden and Becoming Calder and Archer’s Voice and Most Of All You by Mia Sheridan, Sex Says by Max Monroe, Back In The Game by Meghan Quinn, Keeping Her Warm by Alexa Riley, God Shaped Hole by Tiffanie Debartolo, and Killing Sarai by JR Redmerski.
  • And there’s some fantastic books up for pre-order that I cannot wait for!!! The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz, More Than Words by Mia Sheridan, The Girl And Her Ren by Pepper Winters, A Wish For Us by Tillie Cole, Mogul by Katy Evans, Providence by Caroline Kepnes, Getting Schooled by Emma Chase, Fixed Forever by Laurelin Paige, Eve Of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher.

I’m still reading Love And Other Words by Christina Lauren at the minute. I haven’t had a lot of chances to read this week, and the one day I did get chance, I fancied a quickie so I read Rome’s Chance by Joanna Wylde instead (review for that below). I have been reading Love And Other Words though, and I’m loving it – it’s very emotion filled and I cannot wait to continue.

I still haven’t decided what I’m going to read next. I’m keeping this list from last week up so hopefully someone can give me some top recommendations from it.

  • As I mentioned before, I read Rome’s Chance by Joanna Wylde this week, it’s book #6.6 in her Reaper’s series though can be read as a stand-alone! You can check out my review here!
  • I helped to reveal two covers this week, one is A Wish For Us by Tillie Cole (such a beautiful cover!!!) and the other is Playboy by Katy Evans – I live both Katy and Tillie’s books so I’m very excited for both!
  • Lesley Jones has put book 1 and 2 of her Carnage series into a box set which is available for a limited time and it’s just 2.99! Bargain!! Grab it while you can.
  • Pennies by Pepper Winters is FREE!!! I loved this book so you should definitely snap this up!!
  • For just 0.99 can you get The UnDomestic Goddess by the wonderful Sophie Kinsella! I read this book years ago and I loved it!!!

I actually managed to fit in some reading time this week – yay! It’s also been a pretty great week for book news. Check out my Week In Books below…

I’ve finally dived into Love And Other Words by the amazing writing duo Christina Lauren! I’d been hearing nothing but great things so I was insanely excited to start it.

This week I set up a What’s Next? collection on my Kindle app and I went through ALL the books on my kindle and picked out ones which caught my eye the most, some recent buys, some from years ago! I also have a FBBF18 collection which has books from authors attending the Four Brits Book Fest 18 event I co-organise, so I’ll be going between the two collections over the next few months when picking my next read.

Here’s a few suggestions from my collections… Truth Or Beard by Penny Reid, Taking Chances by Laura Farr, Six Of Hearts by LH Cosway, The Man In The Black Suit by Sylvain Reynard, Captive In The Dark by CJ Roberts, Preppy Part 3 by TM Frazier, Loving Mr Daniels by Brittainy C Cherry, Bullet by Jade C Jamison, and On The Island by Tracey Garvis Graves, just to name a few!

It’s going to be a tough one, any advice??

  • I finally got some reading time in and I devoured The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz which releases in June. You’ll have to wait a bit longer for my review but it was a solid 4 stars – fans of the Original Sinners series will love this Kingsley spin off!
  • Joanna Wylde’s latest book in her Reaper’s series released! Rome’s Chance is a novella and I’m so excited to dive in now it’s on my kindle!
  • I reviewed The Sea Of Tranquility by Katja Millay this week – it’s been over 5 years since I first read it so I figured it’s about time I put up a 5 star review!
  • Tarryn Fisher has a new release coming in just one month with Willow Aster who are writing under the name Fisher & Aster. Check out the cover reveal of Folsom!
  • The first book in Sophie Kinsella‘s Shopaholic series is currently just 0.99!! This is my favourite Chick Lit series! So many laughs!!
  • Natasha Preston has a new release titled Lie To Me! I am in love with this cover and I can’t wait to read this one!
  • A new author on my radar this week is Jessica Ruben whose debut novel releases May 1st. Rising is available for pre-order and definitely one to watch!
  • Max Monroe have a sale on! Sex Says is just 0.99! Snap it up before it increases!
  • A Boy Like You by Ginger Scott is also just 0.99 and it looks so great, I couldn’t resist snapping it up myself.

This week has been a crazy busy week work-wise which has meant that not a lot has happened in my little blogging world – no reviews this week *gasp* BUT it doesn’t all begin and end there. Check out my Week In Books below…

I still plan on reading Christina Lauren’s latest release, Love And Other Words, but in 2 days Joanna Wylde will be releasing Rome’s Chance which is a novella set in her Reaper’s series which I LOVE!! So I might fit in a quickie with Rome before I jump into the emotion of the latest CLo!

Week In Books – w/e – 15/4/18

Week In Books is a feature where I catch you up on my week in the book world, whether it be new books I’ve one-clicked, books that have caught my eye, book-world news, reviews, and what I’ve been reading that week. I’d love to see your own Week In Books in the comments!

I have finally started my ARC of The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz, and I couldn’t more excited to be back in the world of the Original Sinners. I’ve only just started it so no real views yet, but I’m positive it’s going to be another amazing read from this author.

I’m thinking it’s going to have to be the fantastic writing duo Christina Lauren’s latest release, Love And Other Words. I’ve heard nothing but incredible things about this one, it’s not like anything they’ve written before and I’m itching to dive in.

  • So as you just saw, Christina Lauren released Love And Other Words on Tuesday. You can still read the prologue, chapter one, chapter two, chapter three, and Chapter four over on their blog.
  • Michelle Leighton (formerly writing as M Leighton) has released her first book in quite some time titled The Dandelion. This looks to be a heartbreaking second chance love story – a definite one-click!
  • Another new release came from Jewel E Ann – she released the second book in her Transcend duo, Epoch. All my book friends rave about this series so Transcend and Epoch are high on my TBR!
  • Sally Thorne has a new book coming out in January 2019 (I know it’s age away!!) and you can pre-order it now! It’s called 99 Percent Mine and even the title makes me excited to read it!
  • Ricochet by Kerri Lake is on sale for just 99p! I really liked this one, it’s a dark standalone antihero romance.
  • Meghan Quinn’s book Three Blind Dates is just 99p for a matter of days so you need to snap this one up!!
  • There’s a new Reapers MC novella coming!!!! I am crazy obsessed with this series and Rome’s Chance by Joanna Wylde is releasing on April 24th! I cannot wait!!!
  • Kate Stewart has a new book out! It’s called The Real and I’ve heard it’s another epic romance which is sure to bring tears!
  • I got 2 reviews up on the blog this week! First up was Pepper Winters’ latest, The Boy And His Ribbon, and OMG you guys, it was beyond incredible. Read my 5 star review and get clicking! It’s a must!!
  • And I finally reviewed the awesome Rock Chick series by the Queen Kristen Ashley. I gave the series an overall 4 stars but there’s a few hidden 5 stars within. I’m sad the series is over but if anyone hasn’t yet met the Hot Bunch, have a read of my review and dive in!

Week In Books – w/e 8/4/18

Week In Books is a feature where I catch you up on my week in the book world, whether it be new books I’ve one-clicked, books that have caught my eye, book-world news, reviews, and what I’ve been reading that week. I’d love to see your own Week In Books in the comments!

I’ve just dived into Pepper Winters’ latest, The Boy And His Ribbon, which I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about. It released this week and true to Pepper’s style it’s a long one so I expect I’ll spend most of the week (between work and kids) reading it. Anyone else reading this one too?

It’s more than likely going to be my ARC of The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz. For any newbies to my blog, I am a crazy huge Tiffany Reisz fan, and her Original Sinners is one of my very very favourite series. It’s impossible not to love Kingsley so I’m so excited to be jumping back into the world of my favourite pervert.

  • Christina Lauren, revealed two more chapters from the book they are releasing on April 10th called Love And Other Words. (In case you missed my previous post you can check out the prologue, chapter one, and chapter two) Now you can also read chapter three, and Chapter four!
  • Mariana Zapata’s book Rhythm, Chord And Malykhin is currently on sale (at time of posting) for just £1.99! This is a HUGE sale for this book so grab it quick!
  • 5 star 99p sale alert!!! Drive by Kate Stewart is a book everyone should read, and (at the time of posting) it’s less than a pound!! This was my joint favourite book of 2017 and you can find my 5 star review right here!
  • The ultimate Queen Of the Alphas, Kristen Ashley, turned 50 this week, and to celebrate she revamped the covers of the entire Rock Chick series, put them all on sale, AND she gave us a new book!!! Shirleen finally gets herself a well deserved HEA and I absolutely loved it!! You can check out my post about all this by going here, and keep an eye out next week where I’ll have a Rock Chick full series review!
  • And finally, I finished One Day In December by Josie Silver and it was just the most incredible, heartbreaking and heartwarming read. You guys, it took me a while to recover from this one, and as the book doesn’t release until September, the publisher wants me to hold off on reviewing on my blog until closer to that time, but I can post on Goodreads, which I will be doing this week when I can find the right words. This is a major must buy!

Week In Books – w/e 1/4/18

Week In Books is a feature where I catch you up on my week in the book world, whether it be new books I’ve one-clicked, books that have caught my eye, book-world news, reviews, and what I’ve been reading that week. I’d love to see your own Week In Books in the comments!

I asked and you guys responded! One Day In December by Josie Silver was chosen to be my next read and I am loving it! I laughed from page one, and I can’t wait to see where this book goes next. One Day In December is Josie’s debut novel and it’s set to release on September 1st for Kindle, and October for paperback/hardcover. I am so in love with this cover.

Edited to add: Oh god, you guys. This book has taken on a whole new path I did not expect. My poor heart. It doesn’t know whether to soar or flatline. I can’t put it down.

So I’m thinking it’s going to be between my ARCs of The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz (more Kingsley – yes please!!!), and The Boy And His Ribbon by Pepper Winters. It’s another impossible choice as they both look amazing, so again, I’m going to need your help!! Which should I go for??

  • The amazing writing duo, Christina Lauren, are releasing a new book on April 10th called Love And Other Words, and in the lead up to its release, they’ve been revealing chapters on their website! You can check out the prologue, chapter one, and chapter two!
  • Monica Murphy released a new book called Her Defiant Heart exclusively on iBooks! Unfortunately that does mean that for the time being (or forever?) you can’t read it anywhere else, but YAY for a new Monica Murphy book!!
  • FREE BOOK ALERT!! BB Easton’s novel 44 Chapters About 4 Men is currently free at the time of posting!! I’ve heard amazing things about this book and author so I’ve just snapped this up!!
  • I posted two new reviews on the blog this week, and both were 5 stars!! Oh, it’s good to have my reading mojo back! First up was Drive by Kate Stewart, sexy and gritty and angsty perfection! And then there was The Watermark by Tiffany Reisz which is found in the Exposed anthology, Søren’s sometimes sub, Simone, finds herself a secretly kinky cowboy! Full of Reisz’s signature style, it’s a must read for all Original Sinners fans!
