The Boy and his Ribbon- Pepper Winters

About this book: 37914571

“What do you do when you meet your soul mate? No wait…that’s too easy. What do you do when you meet your soul mate and have to spend a lifetime loving him in secret? 
I’ll tell you what you do.
You lie.”


Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth. 
His mother sold him and for two years, he lived in terror.
But then…he ran.
He thought he’d run on his own. Turned out, he took something of theirs by accident and it became the one thing he never wanted and the only thing he ever needed. 


I was young when I fell in love with him, when he switched from my world to my everything. 
My parents bought him for cheap labour, just like they had with many other kids, and he had the scars to prove it. 
At the start, he hated me, and I could understand why.
For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend.
But by the end…he loved me.
The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely different way to the way I loved him.
And slowly, my secret drove us apart.

Here I bring you the brilliant Mara White! Day #7 of Pick-pocketing Poems♥


I know what you’re thinking- “Ari I thought it was an alternate day event, what happened boo!” To which I’d say “Hey! Even the best laid plans get foiled!” And that ladies and gentlemen is not a cop-out. So, initially Jennifer Bene was scheduled to be spotlighted on the 13th, but I couldn’t get in touch with her, so I skipped that day instead of posting ahead of shedule because.. honestly.. you don’t care right?! LOL. Anyways let me introduce you to Mara White!

I was introduced to Mara’s writing last year with her Lovesick duet. It was to put simply- brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Clean, crisp, and absolutely heart-wrenching that story was. I’m still scarred. So when I went to form this list, I knew I had to ask her if she wanted to do this and she said YES!! I was so bloody excited!!! So without much more fan flair, I present to you Mara freaking White!

If it isn’t the dark maiden herself- Celia Aaron! Day #6 of Pick-pocketing Poems♥


Ohh yesh ladies, you read that right! I have Celia frigging Aaron here today so are you ready for some sexy times?!

You do know who she is right? Celia Aaron is a master of dark romances, one of my go to authors whenever I want something promisingly dark, so all my fellow dark junkies must know her!

Anyways, there’s actually a bit of a change in the schedule. What happened was, since I allowed the authors to choose the quotes, they ended up in two different loops lol, which means the quote Celia wrote on, is from an author I haven’t had here yet. But bear with me. They’ll be here soon enough 😀

So without further ado, I give you Celia Aaron people..

The Forgotten Ones- Steena Holmes

About this book: 36097621

In this novel from a New York Times bestselling author, the search for truth is defined by secrets and lies.

Elle is a survivor. She’s managed to piece together a solid life from a childhood of broken memories and fairy tales her mom told her to explain away bad dreams. But weekly visits to her mother still fill Elle with a paralyzing fear she can’t explain. It’s just another of so many unanswered questions she grew up with in a family estranged by silence and secrets.

Elle’s world turns upside down when she receives a deathbed request from her grandfather, a man she was told had died years ago. Racked by grief, regrets, and a haunted conscience, he has a tale of his own to tell Elle: about her mother, an imaginary friend, and two strangers who came to the house one night and never left.

As Elle’s past unfolds, so does the truth—if she can believe it. She must face the reasons for her inexplicable dread. As dark as they are, Elle must listen…before her grandfather’s death buries the family’s secrets forever.

Release Date: 1st April, 2018.

Well well well, will you look at that! She actually came out of her writing cave for this! Oh-mah-fucking-gawd!

I’ve been in fucking LOVE with Lana ever since I read Crescendo last year, and even though that it literally the only book I’d read by her, it’s still on my top books list. Still.

I tricked Leylah Attar into a poem! Day #2 of Pick-pocketing Poems♥


Woohoo! Day two baby!!

Okay okay, I’m really excited ladies. I mean it’s one thing to have authors doing this fest with you, but it’s another complete thing to have you F-A-V-O-U-R-I-T-E author to actually accept this. Especially when you were clever and you tricked her.


You should’ve seen me grinning when I got Leylah’s message telling me she would sooo do this.

I may or may not have left cracks in the walls from how loudly I might have squealed, and then bounced off them. I’ll never accept though.

By the way, have you every read Leylah?! Because if you haven’t then WHYYYYY not?! She’s my favourite author, and for a reason! Dear god people, you need to read her if your reader’s soul needs salvation. #TrueTale

And shit, then she went and accepted to write a poem inspired by a quote given by Amy frigging Harmon, and I died. What an absolutely perfecto combination. *sighs and swoons and dies again*

One Day Soon- A. Meredith Walters

About this book: 26858707.jpg

He found me in blood and tears.
I stayed with him through darkness and fire.

We loved each other in the moment between innocence and bitter truth.
We were the kids easily ignored, who grew into adults we hardly knew.

We weren’t meant to last forever. And we didn’t.

He ran away.
I tried to move on.

Yet I never stopped thinking about the boy who had fought to keep me alive in a world that would have swallowed me whole. He was the past that I buried, but never forgot.

Until the day I found him again, years after believing I had lost him forever.

And in cold, resentful eyes, I saw the heart of the man who had been everything when I had nothing at all. So I vowed to hold onto the second chance that was stolen from the children we had been.

Sometimes fate is ugly. Life can be twisted.
And who we are can be ruined by who we once were.

For two people who had survived so much, we would have to learn how to hold on before we were forced to let go.

Release Date: 16th February, 2016.
