VBB Weekly – 04.14.2014

vbb weekly banner 1

What a week!!! I had the opportunity to see the talented duo of Colleen Hoover and Griffin Peterson and absolutely fell in love with the music of Maybe Someday all over again! Here’s the video of Griffin singing Hold Onto You. Enjoy!!! (and I dare you not to swoon!)

In preparation for Breakable, I’m also really excited to be re-reading Easy this week by Tammara Webber. I read this book in the fall of 2012… picked it from the list of Amazon suggestions without knowing anything about the author, the book, and frankly, the indie community. I absolutely loved it and from then on, continued to pick books from authors I now have come to know and love. Easy was a breakthrough book in the Indie world, the one to propel the New Adult genre forward and if you haven’t picked it up yet, I highly encourage you to do so! Breakable is out May 6th and is the prologue to Easy. I’m thrilled to be a part of the tour, so make sure to stop by on May 7th for my review.

Also, check out my latest Love In Suspense column on USA Today (CLICK HERE)! This time, it’s all about Jennifer L. Armentrout and her latest novel, Don’t Look Back!

New Releases
the willThe Will by Kristen Ashley

The first book in the all-new Magdalene series and possibly my favorite Kristen Ashley book to date. It has a beauty, a vulnerability and realness that made it so heartfelt and emotional. This is a story about finding love unexpectedly, in more ways than one. This was a 6-star read for me! As with all KA books, this can be read as a standalone. (Read my review)

Breathe Into Me by Sara Fawkes

Standalone novel with an HEA. From the blurb: How did my life get so broken? It’s a question Lacey St. James asks herself every day. Stuck raising her little brother in a trailer park while she works a dead end job at a grocery store, she has a stalker ex-boyfriend, a bad reputation, and no way out. And then she meets Everett, whose presence changes her entire existence.

til deathDreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

The thrilling conclusion to the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. This is a wonderful fantasy/paranormal series so original in its writing and storytelling that it grips you from the very beginning. Reading Order: Daughter of Smoke and Bone | Days of Blood and StarlightDreams of Gods and Monsters

til death‘Til Death by S.C. Stephens

The final book in the Conversion series, which consists of three paranormal novels. Reading Order: Conversion | Bloodlines | ‘Til Death

til deathVital Sign by J.L. Mac

MudVein coverMud Vein by Tarryn Fisher

An incredibly written standalone novel with a story that promises to grip you, enthrall you and keep you riveted in suspense. This is a really unique book that you experience. Go into it blindly and let go of all your expectations so that you can feel the full force of this powerful story. It was another 6-star read me. (Ready my review)

MudVein coverWhat If by Bayli Lane

New contemporary romance. From the blurb: For some people falling in love was a happy, glowing experience. For Briar Kelly and Arrow Donovan it was more like getting hit by a freight train. Caring for one another was never an easy feat. They constantly fought to hold their feelings inside, not wanting to jeopardize their friendship. Then, Arrow left for the Marines, and everything changed. Briar was shattered. Arrow was hurt. Read an excerpt.

Must Reads of the Week

The Black Dagger Brotherhood

EASY EASY EASY

SHAME. ON. ME. WHYYYYY???? Why did it take me so long to jump into this series?! Me… the girl who prefers paranormal to all other genres?! *kicks own ass* I have fallen in love with these vampiric band of badass brothers. I love everything about these books and in three days, I read the first three books. I have to say, so far, Zhadist is my favorite, but I can’t wait to continue on with this sinfully addictive series by the talented JR Ward. I can’t stop thinking about these guys and now, my biggest problem is figuring out how to read the remaining 10 books (including Father Mine novella) when my schedule is overflowing. I am determined! I know lots of you have read these, but I also know that many of you haven’t dived in yet… DO. IT. You won’t regret it!
