Drawing Amanda by Stephanie Feuer Cover Reveal

Although this is a bit late, I'm very excited to reveal the cover and summary for Drawing Amanda by Stephanie Feuer, a contemporary coming out this June from Hipso Media. It's definitely one you'll want to add to your TBR :)

Drawing Amanda

Inky draws his crush for a game–and paints her into real danger. 

DRAWING AMANDA is set in the under-parented, high-expectation world of a Manhattan international prep school. Fourteen-year-old budding artist Inky Kahn is still smarting from the death of his father. He thinks he’s found his big break when he bonds with the developer of a new computer game and snags a coveted drawing assignment, for which he uses his secret crush–Amanda–as a model. 

But unbeknownst to Inky, the developer has a dangerous past, and is using his computer game to lure and stalk teenage girls. And Inky has inadvertently led Amanda right into his path. Blinded by his own ambition and sulking from his father’s death, Inky hides from the truth. Will Inky, with the help of Rungs, his cybergeek pal, discover the treachery in time and save Amanda before the creep ensnares her–or anyone else?

The Edge of Falling by Rebecca Serle Book Review can be seductive—but can hope triumph over heartbreak? A dark and searing novel from the author
of When You Were Mine.

Caggie never wanted to be a hero, but some things are decided for us. Growing up among Manhattan’s social elite, Caggie always had everything a girl could want, including a storied last name. But after saving a girl from the brink of suicide, Caggie becomes infamous, and now all she wants is to be left alone.

After all, she’s still reeling from the death of her younger sister last January, the subsequent destruction of her relationship with high school boyfriend, Trevor, and the way in which her family has since fallen apart.

So when mysterious Astor appears on the Upper East Side, he just might be the rescue she needs. But what is he hiding? As life as she knew it begins to unravel, Caggie realizes Astor’s past may be as dark as her own. And in a world in which she’s been branded a hero, Caggie will soon discover that no one can save you…not until you save yourself.

Pretenders by Lisi Harrison Book Review

It takes place at a high school in New Jersey. Summer is over. Sophomore year begins tomorrow. Outfits are being planned. Lunch buddies are being secured. Texts are flying. All seems normal when…ping! Everyone in the sophomore class gets an email.

SUBJECT: The Phoenix Five: License To Spill.

Attached is a mega document.

A letter from a mysterious student starts the book. It explains that at the end of each year the school yearbook- The Phoenix- names the five most outstanding freshman. She (or he) always suspected that last years’ five (3 girls, 2 boys) were phonies. She (or he) always thought they tried too hard to be popular. But she (or he) never had the proof. Until now. She (or he) stole the secret diaries they were asked to keep by their English teacher. She (or he) has compiled them into a book.

This is that book

Panic by Lauren Oliver Review

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do. Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought. Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for. For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

16 Things I Thought Were True

Heart attacks happen to other people #thingsIthoughtweretrue
When Morgan's mom gets sick, it's hard not to panic. Without her mother, she would have no one—until she finds out the dad who walked out on her as a baby isn't as far away as she thought...
Adam is a stuck-up, uptight jerk #thingsIthoughtweretrue
Now that they have a summer job together, Morgan's getting to know the real Adam, and he's actually pretty a nerdy-hot kind of way. He even offers to go with her to find her dad. Road trip, anyone?
5000 Twitter followers are all the friends I need #thingsIthoughtweretrue
With Adam in the back seat, a hyper chatterbox named Amy behind the wheel, and plenty of Cheetos to fuel their trip, Morgan feels ready for anything. She's not expecting a flat tire, a missed ferry, a fake girlfriend...and that these two people she barely knew before the summer started will become the people she can't imagine living without.

Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer Armentrout Cover Reveal

I absolutely loved White Hot Kiss, so I'm excited to reveal the cover for Stone Cold Touch! Here it is: 

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 her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

Best Kind of Broken by Chelsea Fine Book Review

Best Kind of Broken (Finding Fate, #1)
Pixie and Levi haven't spoken in nearly a year when they find themselves working―and living―at the same inn in the middle of nowhere. Once upon a time, they were childhood friends. But that was before everything went to hell. And now things are... awkward.
All they want to do is avoid each other, and their past, for as long as possible. But now that they're forced to share a bathroom, and therefore a shower, keeping their distance from one another becomes less difficult than keeping their hands off each other. Welcome to the hallway of awkward tension and sexual frustration, folks. Get comfy. It’s going to be a long summer.

Blogger Interview and Giveaway: Becca from Pivot Book Reviews

Pivot Book Reviews
Hi everyone! I'm here today with an interview and giveaway with Becca from Pivot Book Reviews. She's a relatively new blogger, but her blog is already one of my favorites :) I love her logo, too! If you're interested in being interviewed, you can sign up here.

How long have you been blogging? 

I've been blogging a very short amount of time. I actually started January 1st of this year! However, I have been a reader and blog follower for a number of years now. It just took a lot of time for me to convince myself to start my own blog, because I can be very shy when it comes to talking to people, even through a computer screen! Haha!

What do you think inspired your love for reading?

Honestly, I have been reading since I was very little, because my mom has always been an avid reader. I think seeing her read when I was younger made me want to read so I could be just like her! I didn't become a full-fledged reading fanatic until I reached high school, and inevitably was convinced to read Twilight by an English teacher. I blame that book for my obsessive book buying habits today. I could easily be feature on a book hoarders show, if that existed!

What are some of your favorite blogs to visit?

This is such a hard question!

If you could go on a date with any fictional book guy, who would it be?

Just one?! Hmm, that's tough, but I think I would have to pick Trevor from Pivot Point. If you have visited my blog before, you would know I'm obsessed with any swoony boy Kasie West introduces in  her books, but Trevor really just makes my heart go pitter-patter! :)

What has been your favorite blogging moment so far?

I would definitely have to say talking to authors on Twitter, and meeting some really amazing friends! There's nothing like having someone to fangirl over a book with, and them freaking out right along with you!!

From books that you read in 2013, which are your top three favorites?

Pivot Point by Kasie West
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Crown of Midnight by Sarah Mass

What upcoming book to movie adaptation are you most excited for? 

DIVERGENT, hands down! Because Theo James. Swoooooon!

Becca is also giving away a finished copy of Fangirl to any US/CA winner. You can enter to win below:
