VBB Weekly – 03.17.2014

vbb weekly banner 1

If you didn’t catch my blog post earlier, I have a huge grin on my face today due to the fact that my very first column published this morning as part of the USA Today Happy Ever After blog (here’s my blog post about the whole thing)! The column is called Love In Suspense and I’ll have a new post for you every other Monday! This week’s piece features an interview with Calia Read, author of the psychological thriller/romantic suspense novel, Unravel (see my review here).

>>> READ IT HERE <<<

Other than that, I’m gearing up for Austin Book Fest this upcoming weekend and I’m thrilled about that! I am so looking forward to fangirling over the authors and catching up with readers and bloggers alike! I’ll be skipping one week of VBB Weekly since things are so hectic, but will be back the week of the 31st!

Must Reads of the Week

maybe someday

This has been one of the best books I have ever read. It’s so original and unconventional and absolutely perfect. Every single word. It was emotionally turbulent, making me feel such a wide range of emotions. As I mentioned in my review, this is a story about friendship and loyalty, suppressing feelings and relinquishing to feelings… about desire that burns and a love that consumes… about the magic of music and the enduring hope of maybe someday. In addition to this amazing story, you have the accompanying soundtrack by the talented Griffin Peterson, that completely flooded my senses as I reveled in this unforgettable experience.

Visit the Maybe Someday website to download the album and read the epilogue. You can also join our group read on Facebook this week, here. And read my 6-star review, which is completely spoiler free! And if I haven’t convinced you yet to pre-order here, I’m done an awful job because everyone must read this book!
