Sometimes, all it takes to get hooked on a book is a short little excerpt. You read just a few sentences from one of the first chapters, and you’re left wanting to devour the entire book.
Today, I have exactly that sort of excerpt for you. This excerpt from Go Home, Afton, by Brent Jones, may be short, but it proves that the book deserves to be in the thriller genre. It’s tense, and hints strongly at what’s to come in the rest of the novel.
Before you check it out, though, take a moment to enter Brent’s rafflecopter, where he’s giving away ten ebook copies of Go Home, Afton.

This is going to be a short recommendation, folks. Why? Because I can sum up what I thought of Gail Carriger’s Soulless in just four words: I absolutely loved it.
Alright, I know, you need more than that to convince you to read it. I do have more to share, I promise. And as a historical paranormal romance, Soulless had plenty to offer. Sass, vampires, werewolves, Victorian London, and a unique premise that brings it all together? You can go ahead and check each of those boxes right now.

I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to feel the urge to read something romantic, yet intense. I don’t exactly know where that urge is coming from, but I have a couple of books in mind to satisfy it. Thanks to today’s excerpt, one of them is Love Me Only, by Justice K Chambers and Susan James Pierce.
Really, guys, I’m sure that, at the very least, you’re going to find this one intriguing. Before you take a look, though, hop on over to Justice and Susan’s Rafflecopter, where they’re giving away a $20 Amazon gift card.

I don’t watch a lot of horror movies, but I do watch horror TV shows. Not many of them, but a few. Mostly, though, I satisfy my horror craving by reading books in the genre.
You know what’s particularly satisfying, though? A horror novel written in a way that has me picturing its scenes as though I’m watching a horror movie. It doesn’t happen very often, and I’m always left a little extra impressed when it does.
That’s the type of experience I got when I read Clowders, by Vanessa Morgan. I can’t guarantee you’ll have that exact same experience if you read it, but, if you’re a fan of eerie horror stories, I’m sure you’ll at least enjoy it.

I grew up on princess stories–though, admittedly, quite often I saw them in the form of Disney movies. Still, I loved them, and that love continues today.
It’s not a surprise, then, that I love to see the concept behind them twisted, as well. That doesn’t necessarily mean an author needs to take them in a dark direction, though I certainly enjoy that sort of twist. I just mean that I like to see them taken in a new sort of direction.
Like, for instance, the direction Blair Babylon has taken with her new novel, Once Upon A Time. Based on today’s excerpt, this novel takes the typical princess tale and turns it on its head with a sharp sense of humour, and something that can only be described as sensual. It definitely leaves me wanting to read more.
Before you keeping reading for the excerpt, though, take a moment to head on over to Blair’s Rafflecopter. She’s giving away a $100 gift card, a signed paperback, and a secret mug.
