Sunday Book Gossip

Sunday Book Gossip is inspired by The Story Siren, however it is not a meme. It is simply to reflect on the past week on my blog and to share the books I’ve received from either publishers for review or purchased myself or won! Please feel free to stop by and share your Book Gossip with me in the comment box below, or leave your blog link and I’ll visit you as well! 


ARC’s Received from publishers:

For a moment, a face flashed before my eyes—the most hideous face I’d ever seen. No matter how hard I tried to forget what had happened, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki—the evil god that I’d helped set free against my will.
I should have known that my first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. If we’d gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I’d have been more prepared. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? I didn’t see that one coming.

I’ve been accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks I’m guilty. If I’m going to get out of this mess alive, I’ll have to do it myself…

ARC’s Received from Author:

Dating a demon, defeating evil, running a tiki bar: Arcadia Bell is a great occult mage in many respects. But then there’s the challenge of her boyfriend’s precocious teenage son…
Arcadia “Cady” Bell may have saved the Hellfire Club’s children from a local bogeyman, but she and her Earthbound demon boyfriend, Lon Butler, now face a more disturbing problem: his teenage son’s new demonic abilities. Jupe Butler can persuade you to do anything—or so he thinks. To test the limits of his newfound power, Cady invites the co-owner of Tambuku Tiki Lounge to be the teen’s guinea pig during an afternoon boat cruise. But when an angry storm whips the Pacific into a frenzy and Jupe puts them all in serious danger, will Cady’s magick trump a teenager’s excess confidence?

ARC Tour & Review: Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Okay so I’ve been pretty MIA over the past two months, and I’m back but I wanted to say that I have missed blogging and all my book buddies immensely! I read four wonderful books last week that I cannot wait to review them on my blog this week, even though I’m super behind on tons of reviews. There was much speculation that maybe I had burnt out on blogging, but I was just having health problems off and on since September, so I was not able to read or blog. Until this past week I had not finished a complete book since September. :( But it looks like all is well and I hope to no longer be MIA. Thank you for your patience.;)

In the meantime my birthday passed over a month ago but I wanted to show you a picture of my cake because it is in honor of one of my favorite series.

The awesome girl in the blue had my cake especially made for my party!

Annie @ UTC surprised me for my birthday with a signed copy of J.R. Ward’s latest Fallen Angel release Rapture

Now that I’ve shared my Book Gossip with you. Feel Free to share yours with me!!! Even if you don’t have a blog and you’re a reader share your exciting reads with me in the comment box below. I love hearing from all of you!

    Charade is freakinh uh-mazing! I finished that book and cried like a baby! It was such a roller coaster, but I don’t regret any seconds spent on reading it, it was fantastic! Best by N. Dawn so far. And Losing It was such an awkward fresh breath of air, loved that one too. Lots of LOL moments. Happy reading, hope you enjoy :)

      Hi Siiri :)
      I can’t wait to read Charade, especially since you gave it the seal of approval. :) I love Angsty reads where I cry and feel like my heart and emotions are in emotional turmoil. Lol. Love it all. Have a great week reading. Thanks for visiting me.

    Don’t have a website but in love with your site. It has lead me to some very interesting finds. Right now I’m in love with Elle Kennedy’s books. Everything that I’ve read from her is fantastic. It has all the mix I love: drama, sex and happy endings. Love it. I especially love the Out of Uniform series. I have just recently became a reader and it was all thanks to 50 shades of grey. How sad, I just turned 36 years old and prior to that I can name about 3 books I had actually read. Until someone lent me 50 shades this past July. I fell in love with the series and probably read it about a dozen times and then I started searching for more books like that one. Since that book I have now read 43 books in the last 4 1/2 months and I’m an addict. I can’t seem to function now without a book in my hand. I can’t work, all I can do is read. Now all I want to do is come home and find my newest read. Every break or opportunity I have I am reading. If there is an AA group for readers, I would definitely need to join. Now if I can only figure out how to make a living doing this would be awesome. Any suggestions??

      Hi Tanya!!! Thank you!!:) I just turned 32 so were close in age!:) I’m so happy to hear that FSOG has turned you into a reader. How funny most people say that Twilight did that for them and since FSOG is a Twilight fanfict that makes me smile. I’m a HUGE FSOG fan! I love Christian Grey sooooo much, you should read Bared To You by Sylvia Day if you loved Fifty. Good luck finding a way to make money at it, lol. If you do then please let me know so I can too! LOL….

  9. Tanya says:

    Oh yeah Happy Belated Birthday!!

  10. LilyElement says:

    I read How to Kill a Rockstar a few years ago and really liked it. That bday cake is awesome!! :)

  11. Braine says:

    Belated Happy 21st Birthday!!!!! Glad to hear you’ll be back.

  12. Hey Brandy! I am so excited that you are back into blogging! I have really missed your posts and reviews :D I LOVE your cake to pieces. I am currently reading Fifty Shades Darker and ahhh! It is so good. Rogue Rider by Larissa Ione was AMAZING, I can’t wait to buy a copy :) and Reflected in You looks awesome. I loved Bared to You so I am looking forward to reading it. Thanks so much for sharing. I am so glad you are feeling better and able to read and blog!
