VBB Weekly – 05.26.2014

vbb weekly banner 1 I am still grinning from the amazing time I had at RT Convention. Check out my recap of the week here! I also finally devoured the YA powerhouse series, If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman and I absolutely loved it! I cried through both books and I cannot wait to see the movie (coming this August)!!! I was able to sit in on a panel moderated by author Melissa Marr, where Gayle talked about the movie and also brought in special guest, actress Liana Liberato (who plays the heroine’s BFF). Have you seen the trailer?!

The Forgotten GirlSweet Destruction by Paige Weaver

This next book by Paige Weaver looks so good! It’s a standalone contemporary romance. From the blurb: I was his addiction and his craving. His enemy on this earth. I feared him. I hated him. I loved him even more. He would either be my destruction or my salvation… Maybe even both.

He gave them a choice. She took it. He made her promise two years. She should have known there was a catch. Eeeep! The latest from Claire Contreras looks like it’s packing some suspense! Can’t wait to read it!

Must Read of the Week

poison princess cover Poison Princess by Kresley Cole Oh how I loved this book. This is the first installment of the YA Paranormal series, The Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole. The story centers around a girl trying to survive after a post-apocalyptic event, realizing she has powers she’s yet to understand. It’s an entirely fresh and well executed idea that is rooted in the Tarot Card concept. There’s suspense, angst and some really chilling parts that gave me goosebumps. There are three books in the series: Poison Princess, Endless Knight and Dead of Winter. The first two books are available now. Below is the reading order… just click on the cover to purchase from Amazon U.S. (Note ebook covers differ from paperback ones). You can also read the first seventeen chapters for free here.

    That’s a decent trailer. Normally, I won’t pay to see tearjearkers (ugly crier!), but I’ll probably check If I Stay out. I worked with Mireille Enos on a film in 2012. I’ve liked her every since Big Love. 🙂
