Friday Finds & Reader Recommendations – May 19th 2017

HAPPY FRIDAY FINDS & HAPPY READING WEEKEND. Guess what? I’m LOVING God-Shaped Hole: A Novel. Oh I know I’ll be swearing up (or crying up?) a storm soon enough, my friends. Because yes, by the reactions I keep hearing about and the fact that I *think* I read spoilers a LONG time ago when I first heard about this one, I have a feeling I’m in for some hurt.

Yep… back when I wanted more Tiffanie DeBartolo after having discovered her “How to Kill a Rock Star” book and swearing up a storm (and calling her a few choice words <— my review) back then, even. Poor author. I was embarrassed but I had to let loose I was so FREAKED OUT. Yes.

All that, and it’s one of my favorite books ever, so YOU KNOW I’m into this. Even though I think I know where it’s going. *gasp*. And yes. I’m doing a reader-reaction video for this. I’m still in the perky-happy “I LOVE IT SO MUCH… SO FAR” stage. ;) *snort*

We’ll see. ;)

In the meantime though, take a look at what we found for the weekend!! :D

AND IT SOUNDS ALL SORTS OF ANGSTY (and super-bargain priced right now)!!! “At eighteen I was a single parent moving to this small town to be with the man I loved.

Lisa: Another must have!!! Sounds so perfectly up my alley!

  • All the Way by M. Mabie <— LIVE!!! HE DATES EVERYONE (& DOESN’T DISCRIMINATE)…I date them all. Shy. Loud. Too busy. Lonely. High maintenance. No confidence. No filter. Bad habits. Naive. Beautiful ones. Pretty ones—and believe me there is a difference, but that’s another soap box. Point is, I don’t discriminate. What do I get out of it? Knowledge.

  • Imperfect (Sins and Secrets Series of Duets Book 1) by Willow Winters <— LIVE!!! HE’S CORRUPT & SHE’S INNOCENT... “A simple mistake destroyed a woman I knew nothing about. She was only a name and a beautiful face in a photograph. Her fairytale life was shattered, but I didn’t give a damn. Or at least I thought I didn’t care, until she stumbled into me.
One look, and I was tempted.
One taste, and I was hooked. It wasn’t supposed to turn into this.”
  • Love Me in the Dark by Mia Asher <— MIA ASHER SUPER-ANGST FORBIDDENY ALERT! SHE WANTS HIM... but she belongs to another man. And Amy is reading and enjoying this recent release!
Amy: I’m still working on Love Me in the Dark, but I am seriously loving it. The only reason it’s taking me so long is not having a whole lot of reading time, and I am at a point in the book where I need to be able to devour it in one sitting so I can get through the angst I just KNOW is coming. This pretty much sums up how I act every time I go to pick it up…

“I dismiss his attempts to help me. After all, I’m the teacher and he is my student. But Colter is hard to ignore, with a strong, athletic frame matched by a fierce intellect. I never suspected meeting outside of office hours would lead us down a path we can’t turn back from…”
