Alexa Y. - As always E, I’m LOVING your choices for this month. I’m particularly excited to check out Ignorance. I think it might be because of the emphasis of the stark differences between the two girls…

And Hannah’s suggestion sounds FAB! I may have to go and try to find a copy in my library when I get back home…

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - And my comment should have said “so hopefully SOMEONE has” – oops!

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I know I already told you, but thank you again for choosing to highlight my recommendation! I love how you formatted it – so adorable! I read the blogger rec from January and LOVED it, so hopefully has that same experience with my pick 🙂

VeganYANerds - I like the look of Hannah’s pick, will keep an eye out for it.

And I am so excited for Jennifer’s new book!

Bookworm1858 - These titles look really good! Usually when I go adult it’s for the mystery or romance genre but these titles are very appealing. I will have to check them out.

The Big Kids' Table: Double Dipping, Estelle - […] Lauren DeStefano. ♥ With the recent release of YA queen Jennifer Echols’ first adult book (Star Crossed), I was thinking about other writers I’ve read who have also ventured into the adult world or […]

Jamie - OH YAY! I want this one!! And it would fit the bill since I’ve been craving some adult fiction! Plus ROMANCE YAY!

February 4, 2013 - 1:45 pm

Lena - HAHAHAHA, I spelled my name wrong. Serious fail :O

February 4, 2013 - 1:44 pm

Lena - I’m dying to read this one and am so glad you loved it! There really is nothing sexier than two people who are attracted to each other but are off-limits.

Awesome review, hon! 🙂

Tara - Jen Echols = auto-read for this gal. Star Crossed did not disappoint and I agree that Vegas was the perfect backdrop for all the shenanigans that took place. Thanks again for letting me borrow 🙂

Lori - Jennifer’s books seem to be kind of hit or miss for me and I really hadn’t given this one much thought. You have convinced me as you so often do. It sounds fabulous!

January 31, 2013 - 2:06 pm

elena - this does sound like a v sexy book but D: to creeptastic things. I can only imagine what goes down when you say it’s like a Lifetime film. HELLO CRAIGSLIST KILLER. buuut I digress. Wendy + Daniel’s story sounds like one I would be into because the off limits relationship intrigues me, I think I would want to be flipping the pages to their scenes too.

January 31, 2013 - 12:33 pm

Nikki @ Foil the Plot - I’ve never read anything by Jennifer Echols because romance isn’t usually my thing, however, every now and again the mood will strike for something kinda swoony so I’ll go for it. And I do like that this is geared more for adults, because honestly, I can only take so much of the high school drama. I think the thing that’s most sppealing here is the forbidden “will they, won’t they” tease of it all. I think even that would have me all hot and bothered!

January 31, 2013 - 12:01 pm

Alexa Y. - EEP. I cannot wait to read this book! I’ve still only read one Jennifer Echols book (Such a Rush), but I absolutely LOVED that one. I think this one is precisely my cup of tea! I love that it’s an adult book too.

January 31, 2013 - 11:03 am

Cynthia - Oh this sounds good! Can’t wait to read it, I love Jennifer Echols and curious to see how I’ll like her fist adult novel. Great review Estelle! =D

January 31, 2013 - 10:30 am

Amy @ Tripping Over Books - OMG I can’t wait to read this!! My preorder is all lined up. I am a Jennifer Echols fangirl FOR LIFE. If her YA books have crazy chemistry and drama, I can’t wait to see what these “few steps further” are like!

January 31, 2013 - 9:22 am

Ginger @ GReads! - GREAT review, Estelle! You captured everything I loved about this novel so perfectly. With already being a total Jen Echols fangirl, it was hard to put this one down. I completely understand the need to stay in work clothes and keep reading, haha. Thank you again for sharing this one with me.
