New look! Legally Yours by Nicole French – Cover Reveal

For anyone that’s interested, you can read my original review of Legally Yours here!

As I wait patiently for the sequel to Legally Yours (Titled ‘Legally Mine’) let me get you all excited with the new look cover re-design for the Spitfire series! I absolutely love it and just had to share it with all of you.

After reading the first chapter exert on Nicole French’s website, I am so desperate for the sequel to this series and the continuation of Brandon and Skylar’s story. The first book ended on such a revelation that it feels like torture to have to wait.

I am so happy that Nicole French chose one of my review quotes for the cover of her book, and it means the world to me to be able to connect and share the work of such an amazing writer.

If you haven’t checked out the book yet, it’s available on amazon here.

Review: A Girl Called Dust by V.B Marlowe (Kindle Unlimited)

30370958

Buy on amazon here:

Arden Moss is used to being invisible. The kids at her high school call her Dust—something that no one pays attention to, that doesn’t matter. Then one impossible moment changes her life. When a boy named Fletcher gets hit by a speeding bus, she runs to help him, only to discover that he’s unscathed. He tells her it’s because he’s not entirely human…just like her. 

This book encapsulates what it means to be an awkward teenager. To not fit in with your family. To lose your best friends to the beast of popularity.

Unfortunately for the main character, Arden, she is also a monster. Part-Banshee and Part-Wendigo!

This book, and the books that come after it are brilliant. I must say that my favourite character is a tie between Fletcher and Arden.

Fletcher is unapologetically brilliant and hilarious. Witty and oblivious.

This book isn’t what you would expect at all. Marlowe throws enough curve balls that you don’t expect the book to end the way it does.

Dreamy Book Covers Tag

screen-shot-2017-03-30-at-8-59-50-am.pngTagged by Kayla @ KdrewTheBookWorm
Image and Book tag created by Tiana @ The Book Raven

I love a good book tag! This one was a bit of a challenge, but here are my selects!

“No ideas by in Things”

A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it:

Getting Wilde: Immortal Vegas, Book 1

30980008

This cover does exactly what is says on the tin, supernatural action and adventure with lots of tarot cards. This is such a brilliant series, and the tension between Sara and the Magician is palpable. The first book is available on amazon, for free, here:

 

“Dark and Lovely”

A book cover that is so creepalicious you want to eat it up:

Unbeautiful by Jessica Sorensen

The scariest part of this book is the fact that mental illness strikes even the strongest and prettiest of us.

“Sugary Sweet”

A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug:

Adorkable by Cookie O’Gorman

download (6)

I couldn’t believe this book was this author’s debut. Witty, funny and cute as hell. Just as a YA romantic comedy should be.

 

“The Simple Aesthetic”

a book cover that stuns with the most simplistic of design

Paper Princess by Erin Watt

The-Royals-Paper-Princess-cover-Erin-Watt-Elle-Kennedy-Jen-Frederick.jpg

 

“Cover envy”

A cover you wish you had on your shelves yet but don’t yet

A Court of Wings and Ruin (Can’t wait until the 2nd of May!)

23766634

I have booked the day off work for when this book comes out. I have been waiting with baited breath since Mist and Fury came out. I am so excited to see my favourite OTP again, I can’t even.

 

“Travelling abroad”

A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own

Gifted Thief by Helen Harper

26794855.jpg

Although I live in England, and this series is set in Scotland I think it counts! I honestly could find a book that I loved as much as this one that also had a cover with a location on the front. Integrity is one of my favourite heroines, with an addiction to pink and an attitude that could knock even the biggest alpha on their butt.

 

“The Colour Wheel!”

A cover that showcases one of your favourite colours

The Wilds by Donna Augustine

26193300

Green, glorious green. Set in the the forest, in a dystopian world taken over by beasts. This series is addictive, and the slow burn of the main love interest leaves you with deep feels.

 

“Switching gears”

A cover change you absolutely adore

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Such a modern classic.

“Oldie by a goodie”

A favourite cover of your favourite classic

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

41Akk9Z302L._SX315_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

 

This is one of my all time favourites. And, yes, I am aware that I shout ‘favourite’ and ‘recommend’ like it’s going out of fashion but this novel changed my life. It encouraged me to write The Bleeders and not to white wash over my own, and my characters mental illnesses.

 

“And the winner is…”

Which cover mentioned above is your favourite?

23766634

 

A Court of Wings and Ruin, just because…

 

I tag…

Candace @ Book Addict Haven

Kristi @ YAandWine

You are under no obligation to do the tag, but I think this one is such a brilliant one that I had to give it ago.

Let me know what you think of the covers, and if there are any books you would recommend based on my selections! I’d love to hear from you.

Review: 5/5 Worth it by S.M Shade and C.M Owens

 

51vposKrJuL._SY346_

Buy here on amazon:

Three unruly friends.
A wedding we shouldn’t have been invited to.
Two unexpected romances.
A scoop of sexy.
And a double scoop of chaos.

I don’t think I have read a book that has made me laugh out loud as many times as this one. With an amputee’s nano-controlled arm going wild, to pranking the groom by locking him in a porta-potty. Honestly, I would hate for these women to come to my wedding, but I would love to be friends with them!

This is a laugh a minute, character driven book that is so beautifully hilarious that if you read it in public, you WILL get funny looks.

Brilliant read! Would recommend to anyone and everyone. 5/5

Review: 5/5 Groupie (Rock-Hard Beautiful Book 1) by C.M. Stunich

download (4)Buy on amazon here:

Five rockstars. One girl. Six dark hearts, six withered souls.
But can one broken person really put another back together again?
And is a cross-country tour the place to do it?

Rarely is a reverse Harem romance done correctly. Groupie has blown all others out of the water.

Intense and thorough character development. Five men and one woman, each character different and complex. I had to say, this book was absolutely brilliant. I loved it. Their relationship is genuine and their love is real.

I love the way that C.M Stunich breaks her characters and then stitches them back together using the relationships in her books. I love the world that she has created, full of drugs, sex and damaged people.

Groupie is a must read for this summer!

I honestly cannot wait for the sequel of this book and would highly recommend this to anyone that isn’t averse to be a bit of group…romance.

Review: Cheater by Rachel Van Dyken (Kindle Unlimited)

31319454

Buy on amazon here:

Lucas Thorn wasn’t born a cheater. All it took was a single moment—say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding—and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays—God’s day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions.

But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.

This cover has the ‘must buy’ factor. I don’t know what it is about this novel that made me want to pick it up, especially considering that I would never entertain the idea of a romance with someone that had committed adultery.

However, this book flies so close to what women would find abhorrent and what they would find acceptable. You find that you sympathise and accept the behaviour of the cheater.

The romance working-relationship aspect and the slow burn, as well as history between Avery and Lucas make for a brilliant contemporary romance novel with just enough depth to keep us intrigued and invested in this story.

I love this couple and I love this book!

It’s a good window into the psychology of unattainable men.

Review: How to Date A Douchebag: The Failing Hours by Sara Ney

32066878Check it out on amazon here:

In the first book in this series, I was intimidated by Zeke Daniels. He was the angry, protective frat brother of Oz. In the second book of this series, (although they work well on their own as well) we get up close and personal with Zeke and Violet. An unlikely couple, both broken in their own ways. Zeke is full of anger, abandoned by his rich parents. Violet lost her parents at the age of four, she is sweetness and light but no pushover!

The only difference is, one sees the glass as half full, the other sees it as half empty. This is such a brilliant romantic story, with complex characters and amazing depth. I honestly love this author and would recommend this series if you love a bit of contemporary/new adult romance.

5/5

Review: The Sorcerer’s Concubine by Jaclyn Dolamore

30373912

Read on amazon here:

I did not know what to expect with the first book in this series. I am ashamed to admit, I looked at the title and lumped this book in many other genre cliché fantasy erotica books. I apologise to the Dolamore for this!

__

Born of wood, cloth, and a substantial dose of magic, Velsa is a Fanarlem, a beautiful artificial girl. Raised to be a concubine, she has seen her friends at the House of Perfumed Ribbons sold off to be the pets of wealthy men. Now her own dreaded day has come. Grau Thanneau is a kind and handsome sorcerer who expects to own a spectacular piece of spellwork–he doesn’t realize that everything he has been told about Fanarlem is a lie. Velsa is not a dull-witted doll, but an intelligent and luminous soul who captivates his heart. Neither of them expected to fall in love, in a land where the law will never recognize her as his equal…

__

This book has an amazing premise, such an ingenious world and honestly made me want to read more right from the first page. It’s the concept of ‘love dolls’ in a fantastical setting, and a country on the border of war.

If you loved the Grisha series by Leigh Bardudo, you will love this novel!

5/5

Review: Firebolt by Adrienne Woods (The Dragonian Series) 5/5 Kindle Free eBook

firebolt_1-banner.jpgGet Free on Amazon here:

It’s been a while since I had read a book that has transported me into a world, so well constructed, so beautiful and in-depth that I’ve had to purchase every book in the series and stay awake until 4 am for two days running to cram as much of the books into my skull as possible.

Dragons. Right. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year old Elena Watkins was no different.
Until the night a fairy tale killed her father.
Now Elena’s in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a Prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh. And the only way Elena’s going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own.
Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe – in herself.

This is that series. This is what you need if ACOTAR and Harry Potter are your bread and butter. The mythology of each of the dragons, the magic school and the slow build up with the main character make for a well-paced story that reveals just enough to keep you salivating for more.

5/5
