Generation Dead is Back From the Grave!

I'm not sure how many of you have read and remember this series, but back in 2008 Daniel Waters wrote this amazing 3-book series called, "Generation Dead". The first book is Generation Dead, the second Kiss of Life, and the third Passing Strange. Their original covers are above.

It is seriously one of my favorite series!

Recently, on Daniel Water's website, he has been posting updated covers for each of the books. On Friday, he posted the new cover of Passing Strange (book 3) along with some awesome news for the series! The first bit of news that I will tell you is that the reason behind the new covers is because they are now all available in both print and e-book format!

Before I tell you the rest of the great news, lets check out the new covers!

Author: Chelsea Camaron
Genre: MC Romance

The event that shook one small town to its core was never solved. The domino effect of one person’s crime going unpunished is beyond measure.

Together, they are the Devil’s Due MC, and their only purpose is to serve justice their way for unsolved crimes everywhere they go. She’s not afraid to call herself a sinner. Emerson Flint still remembers the loss of her elementary school best friend. She is all grown up, but the memories still haunt her of the missing girl. Surrounding herself with men at the tattoo shop, she never questions her safety. Her life is her art. Her canvas is the skin of others. However, danger is at her door.
Will Dover overcome the history he shares with Emerson in time? Will Emerson lead him to the retribution he has always sought? Love, hate, anger, and passion collide as the time comes, and the devil demands his due.

BEA Recap & Giveaway!

Yay! It is finally time to share my recap of this year's Book Expo America! I have been a tad busy so, sorry it has taken me longer than usual to post this.

This year BEA was held in Chicago, which is only 4 hours from where I live in Michigan vs. the 10.5 hour drive to New York. I definitely enjoyed the drive to Chicago much more than the drive to New York, but nothing compares to the city of NYC. I have to say my mother and I dearly missed it. Honestly, Chicago is boring. It did have sights from the movie Divergent, but other than that? BORING! In New York my mom and I go all over the city everyday. We go to BEA, run back to the hotel to change, and then go touristing, we go shopping, we go eat, and then crash at the hotel before doing it all over again the next day. 

However, in Chicago we only went to BEA and got food. We didn't do any sightseeing and we didn't do any shopping. We didn't have the drive to do it and for whatever reason we were so much more tired after BEA than any year previously. I think it's because NYC is constantly alive. There is a very busy energy that surrounds you there, and in Chicago people take their time getting places. There is no rush to do anything.

Overall we had a very good time, but it just wasn't NYC.

It’s all a game until they’re betting with their lives.
Alaya Matthews is in search of freedom. Tired of her mundane life, she packs everything she owns into two bags and heads for Europe. Her plan is simple: see the world and be adventurous, don’t get tied down, don’t settle for less than her heart’s desires, and never fall in love.
However, Alaya didn’t plan for Cole Ashford.
Drawn to her love of life, Cole wants to know how to live again. For seven years he’s been dead inside, and the numerous threats hanging over his head have finally caught up with him. What Cole doesn’t realise is accepting Alaya’s help will mean confronting every part of his tainted past. Alaya is desperate to know what haunts him, and she’s so certain he’ll reveal it she invents a bet he can’t refuse.
One is never enough though, and as they grow closer together, the more daring their wagers become. Neither of them will back down from a challenge, but the stakes are being raised. Gambling on Cole may cost Alaya her heart, or even worse, her life.

If your Facebook newsfeed was anything like mine today, then you have already seen this teaser trailer a bajillion times, but just in case you missed it (or wanted to watch it again) I wanted to share it here!

Today a teaser trailer for the live-action film, Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson came out and it is so fangirl inducing! I am so excited for this film that I can't stand it! Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairytale, it's my favorite Disney movie, Belle is my favorite Disney Princess, and it's my favorite re-telling topic.

Unfortunately, the movie does not come out until March 17, 2017, but fortunately that is my birthday month, which means I will be pre-ordering tickets (if that's a thing)!

The teaser, alone, looks beautiful, the scenes look beautiful, the music is (of course) beautiful, and the character voices that we get to hear in it (Belle, Lumiere, and Cogsworth) sound perfect!

Without anymore delay, here is the teaser trailer for your viewing pleasure!

*sigh* wasn't it spectacular!
