Christy - I recently finished Once a Marine by Loree Lough. I also enjoyed Burying Water earlier this year by K.A. Tucker. Very different, but both good reads.

Alexa S. - I have an odd fascination with grief, and seeing how different people manage to portray the many different ways it gets experienced. Grappling with the concept of grief is what makes The Fragile World sound so interesting to me, and I really think I’d like to give this one a shot at some point!

Brianna - I love with books with alternating POVs and this one sounds really good.

August 29, 2014 - 12:13 pm

Alexa S. - Your review + the interview kind of makes me want to give The Good Girl another try! I didn’t quite gel with it the first time I attempted to read it, but your assessment has me quite intrigued. Perhaps I shall give it a second chance 🙂

August 26, 2014 - 5:22 pm

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Oh awesome! So happy to see a review for this one. I just saw all the hype but not one person who had read it yet. It sounds interesting! Glad it know it’s a bit more… emotional than scary thriller. I think I’ll add it to my list! 🙂

August 18, 2014 - 10:33 am

Cassie (Happy Book Lovers) - This looks creepy and daring and like everything I love in a book! The cover is especially terrifying but equally hypnotizing.

Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

Alexa S. - I so, so agree with every single thing you’ve said about The Promise, and the Thunder Point series overall! Seriously, it’s one of my favorite contemporary romance series. The setting is stunning (and I would love to visit Cooper’s beach bar!), and the characters have just wormed their way into my heart. LOVE IT!

Leah - WEEPING and KICKING myself right now because I’m slacking with this series!!

June 27, 2014 - 11:54 am

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - I’m behind on this series! I need to catch up pronto.

June 27, 2014 - 10:40 am

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I know what you mean about the Pacific Northwest. I’m not usually that interested in visiting the west coast. California I could leave or take. But the PNW – yest please!

I haven’t read any of Carr’s books, but I adore romances and small towns. I will definitely have to look into this one.

Big Kids Table: More than Just Romance

Welcome! How is it the last day of April already? Didn’t I just take my Christmas decorations down? I’m flabbergasted by how fast this year is flying so far. But the end of the month does mean BIG KIDS’ TABLE and I do love working on this feature. Big thanks to those of you who […]

Alexa S. - I always enjoy these posts because I get stellar recommendations from you! I actually have Empire Girls for review, and I’m pretty psyched because (1) sisters, (2) New York and (3) 1920s! I shall report back 😉

May 1, 2014 - 3:59 pm

Lucy @ The Reading Date - Harlequin does have a good mix of non-romance titles and I’m happy to see them featured here! And ohhh Earth Meets Water definitely caught my eye.

May 1, 2014 - 2:08 pm

Jamie - OH, E! You kill me. And by kill me I mean, now I’m off to Goodreads!

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Jason Mott = NC author. LOVE his imagination and the covers of his books. LOVE.

April 30, 2014 - 11:53 am

Ginger @ GReads! - Empire Girls sounds really good. Recently in my social studies class we’ve been discussing NYC (and other areas of the US) during the 1920s. That time really fascinates me. I bet this book would be good as a movie, or maybe even a TV mini series.

Jessica - I just read this book and honestly, I skipped over every single screenplay insert. I didn’t care! I wanted to get back to Smith and Valentina!!!

March 29, 2014 - 12:42 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve three Sullivan romances, and I’ve liked them all. I love how Andre focuses so much on family too. I shoudl really jump back in on the Sullivan train. It’s been a couple months since I’ve read one.

I’m glad you liked Smith’s story, because he is definitely one Sullivan I’ve been interested in.

March 28, 2014 - 11:28 pm

Alexa S. - This series sounds like it would be so fun to read! I love that this one has that whole movie star aspect to it, and your thoughts on the story have got me curious about finding out when and how these two make it happen. (Because it does happen, right? RIGHT?)
