Cover reveal: Somebody to Love, by Aurelia Fray

It’s been a while since I’ve done a cover reveal, hasn’t it? Almost a month now. I’m not sure why that is–it certainly isn’t for lack of nice covers being created.

Regardless, I’m glad to be taking part in today’s reveal. And let me tell you, what a cover to be revealing! The cover for Somebody to Love, by Aurelia Fray, certainly lives up to the mood put across by the novel’s summary.  It’s fun, it’s cheerful, and it makes me want to get my hands on a copy of the book as soon as possible so that I can bury my nose in it.

Are you ready to check it out?

Favourite five: Books I read for the first time in 2017

I talk about books a lot on this blog, and that isn’t likely to change any time soon. So why not kick off my new Favourite Five series with a book list?

According to Goodreads, I read 12 new books in 2017. Which doesn’t seem like very many, but they were well complemented by all of the books that I re-read. I don’t know about you, but re-reading books is something I simply can’t give up. There are some books that I love too much to only read once.

Today’s post, though, isn’t about those re-read books. As much as I love them, I’m always looking for new books to add to my read list. I’m happy to say that in 2017, I found quite a few that I’m likely to go back and re-read later on.

So here, in no particular order, are the five books I most enjoyed reading for the first time in 2017.

Cover reveal: Twin Sacrifice, by Jennifer Lane

In a good psychological thriller, you’re never quite sure who to trust. Sometimes, it’s hard even to know if the main character is who you’ve been led to believe.

Do you know what’s even better, though? When the cover adds to the tension, whether it’s by throwing in another level of mistrust or a new source of concern.

That’s the case with Jennifer Lane’s upcoming Twin Sacrifice. The summary makes the novel sound amazing, and the cover, which I’m happy to help reveal today, amps up the tension another few notches.

Before you take a look, though, hop on over to Jennifer’s Rafflecopter. She’s giving away a $10 Amazon gift card to celebrate the reveal of the cover.

Now, are you ready to see it?

Book excerpt: On the Edge, by Dani Collins

I won’t lie: I love a good romance now and then. For some reason, romances that start with characters not liking each other all that much seem to call out to me in a particularly loud voice. I think it’s because I like the change away from insta-love, but it’s hard to say.

Either way, On the Edge, by Dani Collins, falls right within that category. I haven’t read it yet, but its summary and today’s excerpt easily had me putting it on my to-read list. Just as I’m sure they’ll have you adding it to yours.
