About this book:
Javier Estrada is the king of Mexico.
Evil. Twisted. Psychopathic.
A cruel madman with a killer smile.
And he is my boss.
My duty is to blend in, clean his home, and not make a peep.
I’ve done my job well for years.
Imbedded myself so deep in his world, he’s never going to get me out.
But I am this king’s worst nightmare.
Bad men like him took everything away from me.
I will never forget.
He will pay for the sins of many.
I’ll just bide my time—watching, waiting, calculating—until the time is right.
When I strike, he won’t know what hit him.
The monster who rules Mexico with an iron fist may not bow to anyone…
But I’m not just anyone.
He will bow to me.
Release Date: 26th April, 2018.
About this book:
He collected beautiful things.
Ripped them out of their natural environment and preserved them in all of their dead splendor.
The problem was I wasn’t beautiful. I was all of the hideous and ugly realities of the world packaged into one broken human being.
He came to kill me.
That was his business.
He ripped me out of my natural environment, the prison I’d created, and locked me away with all of his beautiful dead things.
I hated him.
I still hate him.
But if I was given the choice and the ability to leave this cage, come back to life, I’d stay dead.
In all of my hideous splendor.
Because my murderer can only possess dead things.
And I can only be possessed by someone more broken and ugly than me.
Release Date: 11th May, 2018.
Let me take a deep breath in because this certain lady has the tendency to make me lose them so often at this point, I’m kind of terrified of her.
I am of course talking about Kandi Steiner.
I’ll tell you how I met her or rather found her. You see, I was just quaintly browsing GR like it’s my job, and then I came across the cover for Weightless by Kandi Steiner- a then new to me author. So I did what I always do when I find pretty covers- I got that book. But you see, I did not just get that one, but two more of her books because they were all just soooo pretty, and then I got confused which one to start with.
Now who better to ask but Kandi herself. And so ask I did, and she said if I like angst, then I should go for A Love Letter to Whiskey, and so I did, and so I fell, and that was how I got terrified of her writing.
I know I’ve never reviewed any one of Kandi’s books on this blog before because it’s really fucking difficult for me to do so. She takes my heart on such a widely terrifying roller-coaster ride, that months later I’m still suffering. And that is how I knew that I had to have her here on this poetry blast, because surely if I was suffering, it’s my duty to humankind to make them suffer as well.
So here she is- pour yourselves some liquid courage if you must, because when it comes to Kandi freaking Steiner, you’re gonna need it babes.
I know, you’re probably gonna be like “this is getting really repetitive Ari”, and I’m #SorryNotSorry if it is because holy. fucking. gawd, today I bring you LH freaking Cosway!!!
OK, let me just briefly tell you why having Lorraine here gets me so excited- you see I was 15 when I first read a book by her, and I. Fell. In. Love. Because Lorraine’s writing reaches out of the pages of the book and drags you inside kicking and screaming, and you don’t even notice when an entire week has passed and you’re re-reading her series for the 7th time in the last 10 days. That is how crazy this woman drives me with her stories. There is literally not one book of hers that I did not absolutely adore, and I have read all of them.
So yeah, I HAD to have her here because let’s face it.. how could I have all my favorite authors here without having my second most dearest one?
Exactly I couldn’t.
So here she is, with her poem inspired by what Emma left her.. let’s get on with it.
About this book:
Six wasn’t the hero I needed.
But he was the man I wanted.
And it was my selfish craving, the desire to own him, that would be our undoing.
No one tells you that love is a disease. An infection that tears your heart apart, leaving you half the person you were before. A malady that leaves open wounds. An invisible disorder tracing scars in the places you couldn’t see if you weren’t looking for them.
I was sick, but love didn’t heal me.
Instead, it festered in my marrow, and drove me to unforgivable mistakes.
Six was my first mistake, but he wouldn’t be the last.
Release Date: 25th April, 2018
Oh mai god! Someone bring me some ammonia, because I think this girl is gonna faint!
I’m not even gonna be all dramatic, but EMMA SCOTT is here!!!! If you’ve been keeping in touch with all the releases this year, then you know that one book released was literally one of the best books ever. And by that I of course mean In Harmony. I know I’m pretty dramatic on a regular basis, but In Harmony literally tore at me. I gave it a 6 star! And the only other books I’ve given a six star to are Leylah’s books.
So yeah, I really love Emma. She was literally the third name on my list of authors when I was making one for sending out the invitations. I was praying and hoping that she would accept because she’s just too phenomenal an author and I really wanted to show everyone that she’s exceptionally good in every thing she writes. I really really hope you guys check this poem out because I fucking love it. Period.
So without more of my dramatic monologues, I present to you- Emma freaking Scott.
So literally minutes after posting Jennifer’s post yesterday, Amo sent me her stuff, and so I was like let’s do it today and get on track! I’ll apologize in advance if this post reads lack-lustre from the usual, that’s because I’m dead tired on my feet. But more on that later on..
Let us get on with Amo Jones.
I haven’t read a lot of books by Amo, but majority of the ones that I’ve read I have thoroughly enjoyed. Amo masters in writing suspense and thriller with a pinch of dark romance. Her writing just grabs you and I was so fucking excited when she said yes!
So without much fanfare, let us begin..
Woohoo! She’s finally here!
So technically it was supposed to be Amo Jones who was supposed to post today, but since I couldn’t get in touch with her, and Jennifer had missed a day, I have her here today!! BTW Jennifer’s had a rough couple of days, so go send her some love peeps.
Anyways, let me just tell you a bit about her. I was introduced to Jennifer’s writing when I read Imperfect Monster, and absolutely floved it, so when I was planning for this, I knew I had to have her here. And she is! So fuck yeah! It would be nearly impossible to read her books and not see how talented this lady is.
You know what, I’ll just let her writing speak for itself…
I’m sorry- it’s far too late when I’m writing this post, and I’m far too drunk on the weirdest combination of sleepiness and excitement because hawly-fucking-god Rachel’s here!
I’ve been in love with Rachel’s writing for sooo long that honestly, I can’t even remember. She was one of the first romance authors who helped me convert from child stories to YA and NA novels. And seriously, even to this date, The Bet series is one of the most hilarious books I’ve ever read. And you would be lying to me if you told me that you did not laugh at least once- and by laugh I mean that obnoxious, snorting laugh that’s ugly but oooh sooo satisfying.
So yeah, while I can clearly go on forever talking about her, let me just let her steal your heart. Without much more drama, I present to you Rachel Van Dyken.
And so we are here at the end of one loop. Remember when Celia wrote her poem on a quote by Trisha? Well, I promised then that Trisha was coming, and so here she is!
Fuck, if you’ve been around for the month and a half, then you probably remember me raving about Trisha’s books. And if you haven’t then well at least you know now. I fucking fell in love with Trisha’s writing, so it was an absolute no brainer asking her to do this. And she not only said yes, but she also stood up to the challenge and wrote a poem of both the quotes Mara presented!
And so now, I’ll just allow her to steal the show-
Trisha Wolfe people!
