Weekend Reads

Michele's weekend read:

Title: Trust in Me (Wait for You #1.5)
Author: J. Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout)
Publisher: William Morrow Impulse
Published: October 22, 2013
Purchase:  Amazon  |  B&N

From Goodreads:

It’s Wait for You as you’ve never seen it. Trust in Me lets you in on Cam’s side of the #1 New York Times Bestselling story. 

Cameron Hamilton is used to getting what he wants, especially when it comes to women. But when Avery Morgansten comes crashing into his life – literally – he finally meets the one person who can resist his soulful baby blues. But Cam’s not ready to give up. He can’t get the feisty and intriguing girl out of his head. 

Avery has secrets, secrets that keep her from admitting the feelings Cam knows she has for him. Will persistence (and some delicious homemade cookies) help him break down her barriers and gain her trust? Or will he be shut out of Avery's life, losing his first real shot at the kind of love that lasts forever?


Katertot's weekend read:

Title: Cliques, Hicks, and Ugly Sticks
(Confessions of April Grace #2)
Author: K.D. McCrite
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Publishers
Published: December 6, 2011
Purchase:  Amazon  |  B&N

From Goodreads:

Just when April Grace thought the drama was over ...

After an automobile accident, Isabel St. James--resident drama coach and drama queen--needs help putting together the church play. Mama insists April Grace and Myra Sue will help. April's fall is now devoted to spending every afternoon with Isabel and Myra Sue--if anyone is as big of a drama queen as Isabel, it's Myra Sue. Plus, she's dumb. (Okay, not dumb, but "older sister dumb.") If that's not enough, Isabel is wreaking havoc in the community trying to get Rough Creek Road paved, the new boy at school will "not" leave her alone, and then Mama drops the biggest bombshell of all . . . April Grace is no longer going to be the baby of the family . . .

Girls will completely relate to April and love her sense of humor as she deals with siblings, boys, and the many changes that come with growing up.


This past week on the blog:



Other fun: 


There's a few days left to enter for a $25 Amazon card on my stop of the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop hosted by I'm A Reader, Not A Writer.

This past Tuesday, Katertot and I celebrated Allegiant Day!  I know there’s been a lot of hate and outrage over this final book, but what can we say? We never have been the types to go with the flow.   Katertot and I made it a true holiday Tuesday.  No school, no work -- just us and Veronica Roth... well… her book, anyway.   We received our signed book complete with this amazing poster and a bonus gift of Natalie's Journal:  The Lost Entries.

We also received the biggest surprise in the mail to help us celebrate, and I wouldn't be surprised if you heard high-pitched fangirl squeals all the way from our neck of the woods.

A HUGE thank-you to my blog wifey Teresa at Readers Live A Thousand Lives for sending us this amazing Divergent care package packed with goodies she picked up for us at Comic Con.  In addition to the Divergent loot, there are also Runes of the Shadowhunters pins from The Mortal Instruments and a Jacob badge – eeep!  She’s so awesome, and we just love her to pieces!!  One day, we will be in the same room with her, and there will be smooshes and tackle hugs galore!! LOVE this girl!

We may be in the minority -- and while it did hurt our hearts -- we still enjoyed the third and final book in the series -- especially Four’s POV. I'll have my spoiler-free mini review up next week.
