I met Deborah Harkness, ya’ll!!!

This past Saturday I had the chance to meet one of my very favorite authors, Deborah Harkness. She wrote the All Souls Trilogy, my favorite paranormal romance series (although I should note that there’s so much more than PNR… there is history and science in there too). She most recently released the #1 NYT bestseller, The Book of Life, which is the series finale. She was an amazing speaker and I can’t tell you how excited I was to meet her and chat with her. If you haven’t read these books, I highly recommend them!

Must Read of the Week

This week packed way too much goodness to just recommend just one must read, so I’ve got my three top picks from last week’s major release week!

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover – An emotional journey fraught with desire, angst and secrets that consume. A story about feeling too much and too deeply that you don’t feel at all. Bold and beautifully written, this is a different side of Colleen Hoover … one you won’t soon forget.➜ Read my review

Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout –  Daemon and Katy are back with an electrifying conclusion to one of my favorite paranormal series. Witty, action-packed and irresistibly sexy, this finale does not disappoint.➜ Read my review
Lead Me Not by A. Meredith Walters – Intense, heartbreaking and emotionally charged. This is a raw and poignant look at addiction and a riveting story about finding love when you need it the most.➜ Read my review
