Now, she is at the forefront of an uprising against the courts of Summer and Winter—a reckoning that will have cataclysmic effects on the Nevernever.

In the face of unprecedented evil and unfathomable power, Ethan's enemies must become his allies, and the world of the fey will be changed forevermore.

Outspoken by Lora Richardson Book Spotlight

Publicado por Paulina J. en 22:25 0 comentarios

Title:  Outspoken

Standalone novel

Published: August 16, 2015

Summary:  

Penny Beck is a girl who says yes when she means no.  She keeps to herself, follows the rules, and does what she’s told.  After a disastrous experience with her boyfriend, she's determined to change from the spineless person she’s always been into the strong woman she wants to become.  All she needs is a little practice.  
 
On a cross-country trip to check on her grandpa, she strives to become bolder and more outspoken with the strangers she meets.  Penny's plan is to practice saying and doing what she wants without worrying about what anyone else thinks.
 
Then she meets Archer, an introspective loner to whom she finds herself drawn.  She realizes she does care what he thinks, very much.  Will Penny be able to stick to her plan, or will she revert back to her people-pleasing ways?



Excerpt

Her first list was finished.  The other one had two more items Penny had yet to find:  pickled eggs and canned tuna.  She walked back and forth at the end of the aisles, peering down each one and searching the shelves.  She didn’t even know what pickled eggs might look like.  Were they canned?  She got out her phone and started an image search for pickled eggs.
“I can help you find something, if you want,” a deep voice said from behind her, startling her.  “What are you looking for?”
She turned around.  Archer stood with his arms crossed over his chest, leaning against the meat cooler at the end of the aisle.  She didn’t know how he did it, but he made the green polo look spectacular.
“Pickled eggs.”  She tried to force her cheeks not to flush.  Those had to be the first words she ever said to him?
He pushed off from the cooler, and walked over to aisle six.  Penny followed.  As they walked, she gauged his height.  Her eyes had a great view of his armpit.  She sighed.  All through high school her height had gotten her dubbed as cute.  She feared she’d never be seen as a grown woman.
Archer stopped in the middle of the aisle, and she pushed her cart up beside him.  He pointed to a big glass jar of pink eggs.  They looked like specimens in formaldehyde.  Whale eyeballs.  It took two hands to grab a jar of them, and she put them in her cart.
“Thanks,” she said, but he was already gone.



Author Bio

Lora Richardson always dreamed of being a writer.  As a child, she wrote stories on her mom’s typewriter, and bound them with cardboard and tape.  She put away the stories for a time, but now that her own children are old enough to give her bits of quiet time here and there, she decided to make her dream of writing a novel come true.  
She lives in Indiana with her husband, two children, and two guinea pigs.  She spends her time reading, writing, homeschooling her kids, and hanging out with her people.

Publicado por Paulina J. en 21:30 0 comentarios

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spinethat spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Title: If you're Lucky
Series: Stadalone
Author: Yvonne Prinz
Date Published:
Publisher: 

Is Georgia’s mind playing tricks on her, or is the entire town walking into the arms of a killer who has everyone but her fooled?
 
When seventeen-year-old Georgia’s brother drowns while surfing halfway around the world in Australia, she refuses to believe Lucky’s death was just bad luck. Lucky was smart. He wouldn’t have surfed in waters more dangerous than he could handle. Then a stranger named Fin arrives in False Bay, claiming to have been Lucky’s best friend. Soon Fin is working for Lucky’s father, charming Lucky’s mother, dating his girlfriend. Georgia begins to wonder: did Fin murder Lucky in order to take over his whole life?  

Determined to clear the fog from her mind in order to uncover the truth about Lucky’s death, Georgia secretly stops taking the medication that keeps away the voices in her head. Georgia is certain she’s getting closer and closer to the truth about Fin, but as she does, her mental state becomes more and more precarious, and no one seems to trust what she’s saying.

As the chilling narrative unfolds, the reader must decide whether Georgia’s descent into madness is causing her to see things that don’t exist–or to see a deadly truth that no one else can.  

“A remarkable page-turner . . . Keep[s] readers wondering, twist by twist, if Georgia’s universe will simply burst apart.” —Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle


I'm really into thrillers this year and this seems like a good choice for me.

10 Wishes I'd Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me 

1) A New Kindle

I broke my old Kindle and since I'm a poor College student I won't be able to buy a new one until December but it would be great to have one right now.

2) A house with a huge library like the one in Beauty & the Beast

My house is currently running out of space but it would be so cool to have a huge room just for my books.

3) All my books in hardcover copies

Although I   love ebooks and have nothing against paperbacks, I love having beautiful hardcover covers of books.

4) Firs edition copy of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

I saw a copy on Pawn Stars and I need one, sadly it was priced at $10,000.

5) Make George R. R. Martin finish his A Song of Fire and Ice series.

I seriously lost count of how many times the release has been pushed back, just give me the book.

6) To stop time while I read

It would be so cool to be able to pause time so I could read and do all the other things I need to do.

7) All of Barnes and Noble Leather bounds classics Collection

The covers are so pretty and would look lovely on my bookshelf.

8) Unlimited supply of book related merchandise

I can't go on Etsy anymore because I keep buying cute book themed things.

9) Get back all the books I let people borrow

I no longer lend people my books but I'm still waiting for the return of some books I mistakenly lent a friend when I was younger.

10) Unlimited funds for books

Books in my country are incredibly expensive, so I have to really budget which books to buy physical copies of, t would be great to just go to the bookstore and grab anything I wanted.

Running out of time and options, Iolanthe and Titus must act decisively to deliver a final blow to the Bane, ending his reign of terror for good.

However, getting to the Bane means accomplishing the impossible—finding a way to infiltrate his crypt in the deepest recesses of the most ferociously guarded fortress in Atlantis. And everything is only made more difficult when new prophecies come to light, foretelling a doomed effort....

The monster showed up after midnight. As they do.

But it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming...

This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.

It wants the truth.
