Waiting On Wednesday: Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)

Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.


I've been on a New Adult roll lately so I had to feature one of the most popular NA authors: K.A. Tucker.
Now I've only read one book of hers but I realy really liked it, it was edgy and hot and mysterious and perfect for me. And I hope she'll hit it out of the park with this one too.

Waiting On Wednesday: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)

by colleen hoover
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken. Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

I've read a couple of books written by Ms. Hooverboard and I am convinced she has a gift to write very entertaining romances so I am already prepared to swoon with her next book, which seems to have everyone going crazy :)

Review: Boomerang by Noelle August

Title: Boomerang
Author: Noelle August
Published July 8th 2014 by William Morrow Paperbacks
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

I was really excited to start Boomerang. It's a new adult book yes, but the plot seemed to stay away from the over the top dramatics that surround your typical NA.

I liked it from the start. I liked the humoristic approach to the story and the dual POV allowed me to connect to both main characters and get to know them better. Mia and Ethan are the new Boomerang interns, both are competing to get a job there at the end of the year, and as you can see this calls for a cutthroat fight between them. But no. Since they had a fling the night before this all started, they had already realized they were good people so most of the time they were just fighting the attraction instead of each other. Which calls for a very steamy read ;)

Like I said, I also really enjoyed that the authors didn't take their characters too seriously and instead put them in situations that made the book funny and entertaining. Even the secondary characters were awesome. I especially liked Rhett, he always made me crack up. And the kids on Ethan's youth soccer team were adorable and hilarious too.

So I guess I would recommend this to you if you want to read a New Adult that stands aside of the others, or just if you want to have some fun because this is a perfect read for the summer.

Heart-Warming is vital.

Hello there.

So I know this is a book blog, and I am supposed to be writing about books, but I'm only human, you guys, and I cannot read at the rate other bloggers can. But I don't want to post twice (or most often) once a week and leave my blog so lonely.

Which led me to thinking about what should I write that speaks to my heart?

And I figured you don’t care about Kreb’s Cycle, how to diagnose fibromyalgia or the Apgar scale for newborns. So what’s something else that makes me feel happy? Well, that will be heart-warming YouTube videos.

You read that right. I am a sucker for a good story told in 3-minute video format. And even my mom is sick of me retelling everything I found on my free time, so I figured I had to find new victims and now we are here.


This time I want to share this little jewel.

It especially speaks to me because I love senior citizens. In my experience they are the sweetest, nicest, most considerate people ever. I’ve always considered specializing in Geriatrics because they appeal so much to me. And this is one of the best ideas in human history.

I also have a soft spot for people learning another language. I am bilingual, speak English and Spanish fluently, they were never a problem. But I tried learning German years ago and I am currently learning French and man, I am now realizing how difficult this can be, it opened my eyes. That’s why you should never make fun of someone who is trying. And these teens are much braver than me.

So really, this is magic. Watch for yourself.

Waiting On Wednesday: Beware The Wild by Natalie C. Parker

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)
Beware The Wild by Natalie C. Parker
It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp -- the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.  
Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance -- and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her. 
This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.


Well... I am kind of cheating with this one.
Because I have already read this book...
BUT I still wanted to feature it before pub day because it is freaking fantastic! And the more buzz the better! ;)

Review: On The Fence by Kasie West

Title: On The Fence 
Author:Kasie  West
Expected publication: July 1st 2014 by HarperTeen
Genre: YA contemporary
Goodreads | Amazon | Buy The Book Now at The Book Depository, Free Delivery World Wide

I am completely in love with Kasie West and her ability to write the most adorable stories. So far I have loved every single one of the books she has ever put out. So I was beyond curious to see if she would do it again, and she totally did!

On The Fence delivered. It was a cute story that went beyond fluffy, summery writing but still didn't take itself too seriously. It featured West's now signature style of amazing, relatable heroines and a supporting cast that was more than just added secondary characters, to the point that you learned everyone's name and cared for their individual stories.

I loved Charlie. She was the strongest of the whole book to me, just so easy to like and her point of view made the book completely captivating and hilarious. I loved the dynamics between her and her brothers. They made one of the cutest sibling relationships I have ever read. And I love that Charlie was going through a lot of self doubt but she was still confident in what she loved, like sports and hanging out with the guys and not one of those insecure, whiny girls that wonder why the world doesn't love them. She definitely strung at my heart cords because I have also felt insecure about how I look, much like her I am tall and even though I am no jock I hit the gym often and I sometimes feel so big standing beside all my petite friends; and all this only made me feel more connected to her and her story.

And I loved each of her brothers and their different personalities too. And of course her dad was a sweetheart so I loved each time he awkwardly tried to teach Charlie any girl stuff, it was hysterical. And don't get me started on Braden, who was just so perfect with how he wanted Charlie to be with someone who appreciated who she really was. Le sigh.

The story with Charlie's mom was an unexpected depth that added a lot to an otherwise cute story, I really liked that. But don't think this book isn't hilarious too, it is! It has been reaffirmed that West has joined my list of Contemporary queens. Loved it.
