Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? While it’s not the only factor in picking up a book, a pretty cover doesn’t hurt. Uncovered is a weekly post where I show some cover love. Hope you enjoy! Many thanks to my friend Bookyurt for featuring this book recently in her Comic-Con book report post. There was some talk of this book at SDCC but I didn’t get to see the cover until now. Hit by Delilah S Dawson is a young adult novel that is a suspense thriller. I’ve only read one book by Dawson (which I was not a big fan of) but I’d be willing to give another book by her a try. I just adore this illustrated cover. It’s simple but very clever. I like how her eye is made with the silhouette of the gun. It just looks like it’s going to be fun. That’s my… Read more »
Hi, everyone! I am really excited to be participating in the ROCK ADDICTION blog tour today. As you may know, I am a huge, huge fan of Nalini Singh. She’s an auto-buy author for me and I am really excited about her new book. This book is a bit of a departure foe her and is a straight up contemporary romance with a rock n roll vibe. Today I have an excerpt as well as a giveaway. I hope you decide to give this book a chance. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. A bad boy wrapped in a sexy, muscled, grown-up package might be worth a little risk… Molly Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media’s harsh spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No impropriety. No pain. Then she… Read more »
Tusk, the new film by Kevin Smith opens this week. As a fan of Kevin Smith and horror films, this movie seems tailor made for me. It looks strange, scary, and funny. I don’t really know what to expect but I am sure it’s going to be weird. Who else is going with me this weekend?
Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and The Story Siren, Stacked is a weekly post where I share with you the books that I’ve bought, borrowed or received for the week. I hope you’re all staying cool this weekend. It’s hotter than Hades in LA. The only book I picked up this week was Hotel On The Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford, which is for my book club later this month. I’ve been meaning to read this one for years so I’m glad my friend picked it out. That’s all I’ve stashed this week. What’s in your mailbox?
Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is hobbies! What hobbies do you enjoy? Wait – you mean I don’t spend all my free time reading? As nice as that sounds, I do have other interests and hobbies that I partake in. It might be strange but I’ve never considered reading a “hobby.” For me, it’s something that I just do and that is a part of my every day life. I think of hobbies more like fun things I like to do in my free time. While I would be sad if I could not do some of the things I consider hobbies, I don’t know if I could survive without reading. That’s a random distinction but that’s how I think of it…. Read more »
Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? While it’s not the only factor in picking up a book, a pretty cover doesn’t hurt. Uncovered is a weekly post where I show some cover love. Hope you enjoy! This week’s cover love goes out to The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma. I love this cover so much. I love the bright illustration and the dynamic, off-kilter composition. The vines and leaves are growing around the title font, giving the cover a wild and slightly ominous feel. The red vines look like tendrils that might reach out and grab me. It’s been a while since Nova Ren Suma’s last book and I am excited to see what she brings with The Walls Around Us. In case you haven’t heard of this one yet, the synopsis is below. The Walls Around Us is a ghostly story of suspense told in two… Read more »
Nite Lite is 3 years old! Wow, time really does fly. When I first started this blog, I had no real plans and no real idea of where it would go. Over the last 3 years, I’ve met so many wonderful people because of the blog. I’ve been to awesome author events and cool industry events like ALA. I’ve met new friends because of blogging and have learned about myself in the process. I never thought that I could keep this going for 3 years and I hope that I can keep it going for 3 more. As a thank you to everyone, I am hosting 3 big giveaways. I started putting books away for an anniversary giveaway last year, but never got around to posting for our 2 year anniversary. So this year, the giveaways are pretty awesome. The first 2 giveaways are boxes of books and are for… Read more »
Shaw London has it all – or so it seems. A beautiful woman from a respected family and she’s on the fast track to medical school. The one thing she wants is the one thing she can never have. Rule Archer doesn’t play by anyone’s rules but his own. He thinks of Shaw as an annoying little sister until they both have a little too much to drink one night and suddenly Rule starts seeing Shaw in a totally different light. It’s a classic case of good girl meets bad boy but can these two seemingly opposite personalities work past their differences and find the love they both deserve?
Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each well I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. Hello and happy Monday! I hope you have all had some cooler weather than I’ve been having. It was over 100 degrees this weekend, which is really not cool. I can’t wait until fall is properly here. This week’s manicure was inspired by Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre. I picked this book up at ALA earlier this summer but am only now getting to start it. I just started it yesterday so I am not very far into yet, but I like it so far. To create this look, I started off with 2 coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, a white creme with a slight grey cast. Next, using a beauty sponge, I added distressed accents with… Read more »
Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and The Story Siren, Stacked is a weekly post where I share with you the books that I’ve bought, borrowed or received for the week. Hello again. This week has really flown by. I can’t believe that Labor Day was a week ago. At least the weather seems to be cooling a bit here. I cannot wait for October because then it really starts to feel like fall. Just a small book haul this week. I just gave away about a hundred books and it felt so good to clear off my shelves (or floor as it was) and I don’t want to get cluttered up again too quickly. I got a couple of ebooks and was gifted a book. Bought (ebook) The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan – I love a good Courtney Milan romance. This is the 4th book in the Sinister Brothers series.
