I haven't had a lot of time to read so hopefully I'll be able to make a bigger dent in my TBR list for October!
If you haven't already heard, Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is becoming a movie!!!! This is one of my favorite series so I am so excited for this to hit hit the screen!
OMG! THG! May the odds be ever in your favor. *Whistles and holds up three fingers.*
One of Jennifer L. Armentrout's latest novels' cover has just been released! It's "wicked" cool! Here it is:
Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.
Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.
Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.
But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.
Eeek! I'm so excited! Also, here's another sneak peak of Wicked. All rights go to Jennifer.
Before he moved, I placed the very pointy end against his throat, right over a very important artery. “Role reversal, bitch.”
Ren let his arms fall to the mattress as he stared at me through impossibly thick lashes. “That move was really kind of hot.”
I narrowed my eyes.
“You really are Merida.”
“Who in the hell is Merida?”
One side of his mouth kicked up again. “The chick from the movie Brave with—”
“The frizzy red hair. Got it. Thanks. I’m seriously going to stab you.”
“She didn’t have frizzy hair,” he argued. “And besides, she was hot.”
I stared down at him. “You think a Disney character is hot?”
“Have you seen some of those Disney characters?”
“She was not hot. She’s like the least hot of all Disney characters.” I hadn’t seen the movie, but I remember catching glimpses of it. The chick didn’t even have boobs. Why couldn’t he say I reminded him of Ariel or something?
Then again, Ariel was kind of stupid, giving up her voice for a dude.
His brows lifted. “She could kick ass, therefore she was hot.
My fingers tightened on the stake. Okay. So Merida was a badass, and I guessed that was better than saying I reminded him of Belle, the Stockholm victim, and now I was oddly flattered. “This conversation has taken a weird turn.”
“Yeah,” he drawled lazily, and then moved his arms. I tensed, but he didn’t move to grab me. He lifted his head and pressed the vulnerable section of his neck against the stake, carefully folding his arms behind his head. “It has.”

I just recently finished Silent Echo by Elisa Freilich-and wow. What an ending! I am now reading Destined For Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon!

Clasping my cheeks with his large, calloused hand, he swooped in and tilted his head. He kissed me, right there on the side of the street, in front of Brighton and Merle’s house. And it was no chaste or quick kiss. I didn’t even think Ren knew how to do chaste kisses.
His warm mouth moved over mine, insistent and seductive. With my hands clutching the helmet between us, all I could do was let myself be swept away by the feel of his mouth on mine.
And it did feel damn good.
The bike still hummed under us, and as his tongue glided over mine, I gasped into his mouth. I felt his lips curve into a smile against mine, and I wanted to pitch the helmet into the street and climb all over him.
Ren’s mouth brushed mine as he murmured, “Mmm.”
“What… what was that for?” I asked, blinking.
He laughed as he turned, turning the engine off. “It was a ‘just because kiss.’ Get used to it. You’re going to get a lot of them.”
I stared at his back. “What if I don’t want them?”
He looked over his shoulder, arching a brow. “You want them.”
I sighed. I did want them.
Wasn't that beautiful?! Go to Jennifer L. Armentrout's blog to find out more about Wicked!
