It's Time for Bout of Books 13!!

Bout of Books

Yay! It is finally time for another Bout of Books read-a-thon! I am in serious need of a read-a-thon, because (as usual) I have not gotten any reading done during this past university semester. The best part is that not only is the semester over, but I finally graduated!! I have officially graduated the University of Michigan - Dearborn with a Bachelors Degree in Communications, minors in Film and English, and a Writing certificate. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can't wait to be a part of the real world and finally be able to read more!

If you don't know what a Bout of Books RaT is, then here is more info...

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books Blog. - From the Bout of Books team

I hope you end up joining me in the fun! Let me know in the comments if you will be reading with me =D

{Trailer Reveal} "Nowhere But Here" By Katie McGarry

I am absolutely thrilled to bring you the Trailer Reveal for Katie McGarry's NOWHERE BUT HERE! 
NOWHERE BUT HERE is a Young Adult Contemporary Romance being published by Harlequin Teen and is a part of Katie McGarry’s Thunder Road Series. It is being released on May 26th, 2015!!

Nowhere But Here - cover
An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both. Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down. No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

{Excerpt} "The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things" By Ann Aguirre

Today I am super excited to bring you an excerpt from the upcoming book THE QUEEN OF BRIGHT AND SHINY THINGS by Ann Aguirre. 

Along with an excerpt I also have a giveaway you can enter and buy links to order your copy! 
Check it out =D

Sage Czinski is trying really hard to be perfect. If she manages it, people won’t peer beyond the surface, or ask hard questions about her past. She’s learned to substitute causes for relationships, and it’s working just fine… until Shane Cavendish strolls into her math class. He’s a little antisocial, a lot beautiful, and everything she never knew she always wanted.

Shane Cavendish just wants to be left alone to play guitar and work on his music. He’s got heartbreak and loneliness in his rearview mirror, and this new school represents his last chance. He doesn’t expect to be happy; he only wants to graduate and move on. He never counted on a girl like Sage.

But love doesn’t mend all broken things, and sometimes life has to fall apart before it can be put back together again…

Take Ruthie Sue Payne--innkeeper, gossip queen, and arch-nemesis of Emma Lee’s granny-she’s adamant that she didn’t just fall down those stairs. She was pushed.

Ruthie has no idea who wanted her pushing up daisies. All s he knows is that she can’t cross over until the matter is laid to eternal rest. In the land of the living, Emma Lee’s high-school crush, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, isn’t ready to rule out foul play. Granny Raines, the widow of Ruthie’s ex-husband and co-owner of the Sleepy Hollow Inn, is the prime suspect. Now Emma Lee is stuck playing detective or risk being haunted forever.

Yes! It is finally official that I am attending BEA 2015! I am so freaking pumped and wish that it was May already! Actually I wish that it was April so that I can finally start planning my daily schedule for what events, authors, and booths I would like to go see. 

This also means that the blog will be filled with BEA related posts in the very near future. I plan on setting up a page devoted to all posts BEA related where you can find tips, tricks, and past BEA posts from previous years. I will OF COURSE be setting up my annual BEA giveaway where a winner will get to choose a book for me to get them autographed, along with awesome swag. I am still working out all the details, so you should see posts starting in about April.

I hope you are all as excited as I am! To those not attending this year I hope that you don't see any of my posts as me rubbing this in your face. I simply like sharing the experience and excitement. 

If you are attending BEA this year let me know in the comments below and make sure to say, "HI!" if you see me =D
