I had a slow reading week this week thanks to work’s hectic schedule and catalogue. Seriously, I worked something like 7 FULL book pallets from Tuesday-Friday. A lot of books and heavy lifting, but man I LOVE new release week! Brought a bunch that I shouldn’t have, and look forward to reading them as quickly as I can.
I had a HUGE bookish weekend too this week. I went and saw Jenn J Mcleod, Tricia Stringer and Karen M.Davis as part of the Australian Voices Tour – which is still on going for the next week and you should totally check it out! I also got to meet Len Klumpp, a man making small waves on social media at the moment for his love of all things rural romance. Such a lovely down to earth, book enthusiast. And finally on Saturday night I went to a book launch for Trinity Doyle, whose début novel, Pieces Of Sky, releases today. It’s YA and sounds amazing. Trinity and Kristy Edgar had a short Q & A, prior to Trinity Doyle reading aloud from her book and it was simply amazing to be there and listen to two vibrant YA authors chat about subjects that were dear to them. It really was a great night, and weekend overall.
Peter is quick, daring, and full of mischief—and like all boys, he loves to play, though his games often end in blood. His eyes are sparkling gold, and when he graces you with his smile you are his friend for life, but his promised land is not Neverland.
Fourteen-year-old Nick would have been murdered by the drug dealers preying on his family had Peter not saved him. Now the irresistibly charismatic wild boy wants Nick to follow him to a secret place of great adventure, where magic is alive and you never grow old. Even though he is wary of Peter’s crazy talk of faeries and monsters, Nick agrees. After all, New York City is no longer safe for him, and what more could he possibly lose?
There is always more to lose.
Accompanying Peter to a gray and ravished island that was once a lush, enchanted paradise, Nick finds himself unwittingly recruited for a war that has raged for centuries—one where he must learn to fight or die among the “Devils,” Peter’s savage tribe of lost and stolen children.
There, Peter’s dark past is revealed: left to wolves as an infant, despised and hunted, Peter moves restlessly between the worlds of faerie and man. The Child Thief is a leader of bloodthirsty children, a brave friend, and a creature driven to do whatever he must to stop the “Flesh-eaters” and save the last, wild magic in this dying land.
Rock Star? Angie Morelli was not one. Growing up next to Power Station’s drummer didn’t guarantee a taste of the limelight, unless you count catcalls at low paying gigs in seedy bars and second-rate venues. She was okay with that; working her ass off at her dad’s mechanic shop during the day meant she could live her dream at night. She didn’t need Power Station waltzing back into her life, Jason Irwin had done enough damage the first time. Could she let go of her hurt for a chance of hitting the big time?
A one-night stand right before Jason Irwin left for his big break was no big deal. Except it wasn’t just any girl— it was Angie, Troy’s hot but young and inexperienced neighbor. It should never have happened, so best he pretend like it didn’t. Ten years later he remembered exactly why he went down that road. She was even hotter and she was also pissed as hell. Sounded like the perfect combination to invite on their world tour.
The road was not the place for history. It was bound to get ugly.
