Waiting on Wednesday [12]

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
 Lying Out Loud
by: Kody Keplinger

Sonny Ardmore is an excellent liar. She lies about her dad being in prison. She lies about her mom kicking her out. And she lies about sneaking into her best friend's house every night because she has nowhere else to go.

Amy Rush might be the only person Sonny shares everything with— secrets, clothes, even a nemesis named Ryder Cross.

Ryder's the new kid at Hamilton High and everything Sonny and Amy can't stand—a prep-school snob. But Ryder has a weakness: Amy. So when Ryder emails Amy asking her out, the friends see it as a prank opportunity not to be missed.

But without meaning to, Sonny ends up talking to Ryder all night online. And to her horror, she realizes that she might actually like him. Only there's one small catch: he thinks he's been talking to Amy. So Sonny comes up with an elaborate scheme to help Ryder realize that she's the girl he's really wanted all along. Can Sonny lie her way to the truth, or will all her lies end up costing her both Ryder and Amy?

Who hasn't read the DUFF or seen the movie? Well, I read the book and certainly enjoy it, but haven't seen the movie and from what I have heard, I wouldn't like it. Hoping to like this book! Its coming our on April 28, ready for it? What are you waiting on?

TTT [13]

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join! This week Top Ten is...
Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Authors
there are NOT in any order

Quinn Loftis
Jennifer L. Armentrout / J. Lynn
Cassandra Clare
Tahereh Mafi
Jodi Ellen Malpas
Marissa Meyer
Rainbow Rowell
John Green
Marie Lu
Holly Black

I know know that I left a lot of good authors out of this list, but I'm very picky with my favorites authors. If I don't actually like very much one of his/her books, then its not my favorite author. Plus there is the fact that if I haven't read some books, then I don't know about how awesome some author is (I'm referring to Sarah J Mass or Colleen Hoover or even JK Rowling). Some of these authors made me cry like a baby or laugh like a loon. Either I like their writting very much or they made me love them bit by bit until I was very deeply in love. Now, tell me your Top Ten!

[R] Rogue, by: Katy Evans

(Real #4)
by: Katy Evans


Greyson King...
My boyfriend. My friend. My protector. He's the reason I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, and the reason I fall asleep limp, worn out, and aching for his warm arms around me. When we make love, he says my name like it means something. Like I mean something.
His name is Greyson King, but his alias is Zero.
There's zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future.
He may leave no trace of him anywhere, but his imprint is in me, in my very soul--and I hate that a mere look at him commands the beat of my heart. The temperature of my body.
I've looked for love my entire life. I've waited for the butterflies, the rainbows...
Instead I'm in a free fall of emotions and there's no one to catch me but the one man I should be running away from. The one man I thought was my prince charming.
Except this prince charming went rogue.
Greyson will stop at nothing to make me be with him. He'll let no one stand in our way, will allow no one to threaten me, and maybe this is what scares me most of all...
What will my rogue do to keep me?

[R] Ruin and Rising, by: Leigh Bardugo

Ruin and Rising
(The Grisha #3)
by: Leigh Bardugo


The capital has fallen.

The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

[R] Siege and Storm PLUS other stories, by: Leigh Bardugo

Siege and Storm
(The Grisha #2)
by: Leigh Bardugo


Darkness never dies.

Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land. She finds starting new is not easy while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. She can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her--or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.

The Too-Clever Fox
(The Grisha #2.5)


In Ravka, just because you avoid one trap, it doesn't mean you'll escape the next.

Little Knife
(The Grisha #2.6)


In this third Ravkan folk tale from Leigh Bardugo, a beautiful girl finds that what her father wants for her and what she wants for herself are two different things.

The Friday 56 [2]

The Friday 56
hosted by Freda's Voice

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it).
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky in Freda's Voice blog. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It's that simple.

It's one of my firsts times doing this! And I will try do it as often as I can. Enjoy my snippet of: Twisted, by Emma Chase.

He hands me the Robinson folder. "Okay. Your investment strategies got them all quivery. They're wet and spread-ea-gled, just waiting for you to nail them." 
His imagery is slighty disturbing. 
"That's gross, Drew." 
He's unperturbed. "You say tomato, I say tomahto." Then he kisses me quickly. "Go get'em, killer." 
He walks away and I head into the conference room to seal the deal.

That's my page 56! I'm having trouble to read this book, but I'm getting there. The first book was so much better, because it was in his POV and it made me laugh more than hers. What are you reading?
