Cover reveal: Something Just Like This, by Tracy Krimmer

I’ve been in a Christmas-y sort of mood lately. More specifically, I’ve been craving holiday-themed stories. Mostly I’ve been relying on movies, but I’ll be turning to books soon, too.

If Tracy Krimmer’s Something Just Like This came out sooner, you can bet I’d add it to this season’s reading list. Unfortunately, it won’t be released until February, so I’ll have to wait before diving in.

In the meantime, I’ll have to make due with helping to reveal the cover. Before I do, though, I’m going to let you jump on over to Tracy’s giveaway–she has a $10 Amazon gift card up for grabs!

Now, are you ready to take a look at the cover?

Book recommendation: The Other Einstein, by Marie Benedict

Book Cover - The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

I don’t know about you, but I always find it a bit odd to read a fictional story about a real person. It’s not that I don’t like the stories, exactly. In fact, sometimes I really enjoy them.

Take The Other Einstein, by Marie Benedict, as an example. I definitely enjoyed reading this novel, and I’d recommend you check it out–so much so that I’m giving away a copy of the book. You can enter the giveaway here!*

Once you’ve had a chance to enter, let me tell you a bit about the novel.

Book excerpt: Dead Blue Sea, by Erin Hayes

How many books have you come across include Buffy the Vampire Slayer as a comp title in their summary? Personally, I’ve only seen one: Dead Blue Sea, by Erin Hayes. Based on what I’ve seen, that comparison may be fairly accurate.

Dead Blue Sea made its way onto my to-read list as soon as I saw its summary, and the excerpt I’m sharing today only helped to cement that status. I’m sure you’ll feel the same way once you get a look at it.

To top all of that off, Hayes is giving away a Kindle Fire. The giveaway is open to anyone in Canada and the United States, so make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the excerpt for the link!

Book recommendation: Sun Storm, by Marlow Kelly


Remember back in August, when I helped reveal the cover of Sun Storm, by Marlow Kelly? At that point, I said the novel sounded like the type of book that makes you question who’s going to survive, but in the best way possible.

I’ve had the chance to read it now, and you know what? My initial impression was right. Not only is Sun Storm a wonderful romance, it’s also a great choice if you want something suspenseful.

Updated book recommendation: Bait, by J. Kent Messum


(Note: This recommendation was first published in October of 2013. You can see the original version here.)

If you’re at all like me and you’re craving a tense, thrilling, at least somewhat-scary type of book right now, then you’ll definitely want to add Bait, by J. Kent Messum, to your list. True, it’s been a while since I last read the novel. That doesn’t change how I feel about it, however.

Updated book recommendation: Pure, by Julianna Baggott


(Note: This recommendation was first published in September of 2013. You can see the original version here.)

Let me start this off with a disclaimer: It’s been a few years since I last read Pure, by Julianna Baggott. It’s a testament to the book, however, that I still remember it well enough to write this updated recommendation.

There’s a part of me that’s still a bit surprised by how much I loved this novel. See, Pure falls into the realm of Science Fiction, which is a genre I generally don’t enjoy. Yet it’s a novel I very highly recommend.

Cover reveal: Love, Secrets and Absolution, by K.L. Loveley

Sometimes, I read a novel’s summary and my mind starts spiralling. Not in a bad way, but rather in one of the best ways possible.

When I read the summary for K.L. Loveley’s Love, Secrets and Absolution, my mind immediately filled with questions. I’m willing to bet those same questions will at least cross your mind once you give it a look through–all but one, that is.

What question won’t cross your mind? Well, I wanted to know what the cover looked like, because it hadn’t been released yet. Today, I’m happy to help reveal it.
