Waiting on Wednesday (21) Wild Fire



Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.




Just when Nevada Baylor has finally come to accept the depths of her magical powers, she also realizes she’s fallen in love. Connor “Mad” Rogan is in many ways her equal when it comes to magic, but she’s completely out of her elements when it comes to her feelings for him. To make matters more complicated, an old flame comes back into Rogan’s life…

Rogan knows there’s nothing between him and his ex-fiance, Rynda Sherwood. But as Nevada begins to learn more about her past, her power, and her potential future, he knows she will be faced with choices she never dreamed of and the promise of a life spent without him.

As Nevada and Rogan race to discover the whereabouts of Rynda’s kidnapped husband and are forced to confront Nevada’s grandmother, who may or may not have evil motives, these two people must decide if they can trust in each other or allow everything to go up in smoke.

Why am I waiting?


What the what? Grandma may have bad motives? Whyyyyy?

Waiting on Wednesday (20) Spectacle


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.





In this riveting sequel to New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent's acclaimed novel Menagerie, Delilah Marlow will discover that there is no crueler cage than the confines of the human mind…

When their coup of Metzger's Menagerie is discovered, Delilah and her fellow cryptids find their newly won freedom brutally stripped away as they are sold into The Savage Spectacle, a private collection of "exotic wildlife." Specializing in ruthless cryptid cage matches, safari-style creature hunts and living party favors, the Spectacle's owner, Willem Vandekamp, caters to the forbidden fetishes of the wealthy and powerful. At the Spectacle, any wish can be granted—for the right price. 

But Vandekamp's closely guarded client list isn't the only secret being kept at the Spectacle. Beneath the beauty and brutality of life in the collection lie much darker truths, and no one is more determined than Delilah to strip the masks from the human monsters and drag all dark things into the light.


Why am I waiting?


This is another sequel that I have been waiting on before I start the series. Sometimes Rachel Vincent books end on a cliffhanger and I didn’t want to have to go through that.

Book Trailer Saturday (20) The Dark Prophecy

Some people believe you can fall in love at first sight. When it comes to books I believe those people. Book trailers are an excellent way to fall in love at first sight. I hope to feature a book trailer here every Saturday to help you fall in love at first sight...


Zeus has punished his son Apollo—god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more—by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo do anything about them without his powers?

After experiencing a series of dangerous—and frankly, humiliating—trials at Camp Half-Blood, Apollo must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America. Fortunately, what he lacks in godly graces he's gaining in new friendships—with heroes who will be very familiar to fans of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Heroes of Olympus series. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride. . . .

“I wanted you to stop.” 

“I was encouraged by you breathlessly moaning my name.” I spun on my foot.

“I wasn’t moaning your name. I was shrieking in alarm.”

“That was the sexiest throaty shrieking I’ve ever heard.” 

“You need to get out more.” 


This was a re-read for me as White Hot comes out at the end of the month. So excited, really want to see what happens between these two.

This is the only mob series I have stuck with- it is that good. Sloan is the weird sister, who escaped the O’Malley family. Plus, Jude is a mystery.

He knew these tracks. The shapes pressed into the earth were too small to be those of a man. Too delicate.

Though his twin sister was anything but delicate, Kenshin knew they belonged to her with the same sort of certainty he felt in his heart. In his every breath. She's been alive three days ago.

Flame In The Mist page 43

Mariko's brother believes that she is alive. Will he get to her time? Does she need to be rescued?


"You insult yourself by dismissing skills that took you a lifetime to develop. At the same time you insult me by stating that I need only try- as though the only hindrance is my own lack of effort. Mariko's speech grew more rapid with each passing word. She took a deep breath before continuing. "To even attempt something, one must first believe in the possibility. And then be granted an opportunity."

Flame In The Mist page 144

Mariko sure does know how to put a man in his place. Too bad she is doing it disguised as a man.

"There's nowhere you could run that I wouldn't find you."..."And that gets you off like nothing else, knowing that I'd rip myself apart to hunt you down, that I wouldn't rest, wouldn't eat, would go mad with wanting you until you were with me again."

Waiting on Wednesday (18) Dramatically Ever After


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.






Senior year is not shaping up to be the picture perfect movie Em Katsaros had imagined. Her super hot leading man is five thousand miles away. Her dad just got laid off. And Em can kiss her first-pick university goodbye if she doesn't snag a scholarship.

To turn this Shakespearean tragedy into the Academy Award-winning dream Em has written for herself, she enters a speech competition and manages to cinch a spot in the US Youth Change Council national round. She gets to spend a week in Boston and her prayers might be answered if she can kick butt and win one of the national scholarships.

Everything seems to be going by the script until she finds out Kris Lambert—senior class president, stuck-up jerk, and her nemesis—is going, too. Cue the dramatic music. In Boston, Kris is different. Nice. Cute, even. But she knows his game way too well—be nice to your opponents and then throw them under the bus on your way to victory. Instead of becoming his next victim, Em decides to turn the tables by putting her acting and flirting skills to work. Unfortunately, as they get close to the final competition and judging, reality and acting start to blur.

Can Em use the drama from the stage to get the future she's been dreaming of?

Why am I waiting?


I really liked Bookishly Ever After and hoping that this one has the same level of snark to it.

"I spent my entire life bowing to others' wishes, and I threw away my entire family for my freedom. Do not think for a second that I won't do the same to you." She made it almost to the door when his next words stopped her cold.

Sloan finally has a backbone and Jude is about to cripple her world.  Bet she handles it better than anyone thought she would.

Jude took a step closer, towering over her, his shoulders so broad, they filled the doorway. "Are you done?"

Just like that, she had a whole lot more to say. "Actually-"

"That was a rhetorical question, sunshine." His big hand cupped the back of her neck, his thumb tracing over her jaw and up to drag against her bottom lip.

So far I am loving Jude. I had some unfriendly opinions about Sloan from Carrigan's book. So far, she is growing on me.

Victoria Scott is a phenomenal writer and this book sounds just different enough to make me want to read it.
