#Georgiethon Recap

Today I am recapping the best read-a-thon EVER of the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead.  Specifically, over the past three weeks, a group of us has read (or re-read) the six books in this wonderful series!  Thank you so much to Nereyda and Megan for putting this all together and for having this vision!

You can read more about #Georgiethon here but, basically, the past three weeks have been awesome.  I first read the Georgina Kincaid series over two years ago.  I remember devouring it the first time and it has since stuck in my mind as one of my all-time favorite series and Seth as one of my top book boyfriends!!  So I was super duper excited when Nereyda and Megan announced the read-a-thon because when I read the series the first time, I had no one with whom to squee/wail/discuss the books.  

First, I loved the series even more on a re-read.  I picked up things I'm sure I didn't pick up the first time I read the series because I wasn't as focused on finding out the c…

Waiting on Wednesday: Stone Cold Touch (The Dark Elements #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on Stone Cold Touch (The Dark Elements #2) 
by Jennifer L. Armentrout!



From Goodreads: Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change he…

Swoon Thursday is a meme hosted by YABound.  
From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.



Today, in honor of #Georgiethon, I am spotlighting Succubus Heat (Georgina Kincaid #4) by Richelle Mead.  You can read more about #Georgiethon here!  And now, on to the swoon: We resumed kissing, doing no more than that, just letting our nearly bare bodies wrap around each other.  Having all this skin touching between us was heady.  Never, never had I imagined it could really happen.  Our hands explored each other, feeling every line and curve we'd always been denied.  Every gesture between us was exquisite.  Every caress was a prayer.  We regarded each other's bodies with wonder and joy.  Doesn't this make you want to read more?!  As I iterated last week, I am having an amazing time with Nereyda and Megan and everyone else on this read-a-thon of the Georgina …

Waiting on Wednesday: The Here and Now by Ann Brashares

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on The Here and Now by Ann Brashares!



From Goodreads: Follow the rules. Remember what happened. Never fall in love.

This is the story of seventeen-year-old Prenna James, who immigrated to New York when she was twelve. Except Prenna didn’t come from a different country. She came from a different time—a future where a mosquito-borne illness has mutated into a pandemic, killing millions and leaving the world in ruins. 

Prenna and the others who escaped to the present day must follow a strict set of rules: never reveal where they’re from, never interfere with history, and never, ever be intimate with anyone outside their community. Prenna does as she’s told, believing she can help prevent the plague that will one day ravage the earth. 

But everything changes when Prenna falls for Ethan Jarves.  I recently saw this book on a li…

Today, in honor of #Georgiethon, I am spotlighting Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid #1) by Richelle Mead.  You can read more about #Georgiethon here!  And now, on to the swoon: I had said Roman was beautiful, but he was nothing--nothing at all-- compared to Seth in that moment.  Seth, with those long-lashed, quizzical brown eyes, kindness made manifest in all of his actions.  Seth, his messy hair and slightly unkempt facial hair, framing a face which could not hide his nature, the strength of his character shining out at me, his soul like a beacon on a foggy night."Seth," I whispered.  "Seth." He leaned toward me, letting me draw him closer and closer, and then, as heaven and hell raged beyond, I kissed him.  SO excited to be joining Nereyda and Megan

From Goodreads: Liz Dougherty has no idea a single question is about to change her life.

Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference. Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician—a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits—but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.

But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozying up to a reporter. And Liz isn’t sure sneaking ar…
