Identity Crisis

Hello, hello, hello.

Yes. It's actually me.

It's been a real long time since I've posted absolutely anything on here...and I sincerely apologize! I have been super busy over the last little while with a lot of personal things and haven't really been able to spend time for myself. Yes, I've kept reading. Albeit, definitely not as much as I used to.

Over the last little while, I have been introduced to so many new authors and have read a plethora of books. Hopefully sometime in the near future, I can find time to actually sit down and review them for your sake.  I've also added many books to my "to read" list on Goodreads...and we all know how that goes. You read one and end up adding fifteen new ones in its place. I swear, that list will never see the end.

Anyway, on to the reasoning behind the title of this post. A few months ago, I attempted to update some things on Facebook and possibly find time to write a review or two. Unfortunately, it only resulted in me finding out that my "Book Bookie" Facebook is no longer in existence. (Damn, I guess they finally realized that Book Bookie wasn't my actual name!). This means that I lost my biggest source of networking with other bloggers, readers, and authors. I was very upset. I loved talking to you all on Facebook and networking on there. When that happened, I had no idea what I was going to do to replace Facebook in regards to Book Bookie's identity. I tried to completely build a website from scratch, but I definitely do NOT have that sort of expertise no matter how vigorously I studied HTML and all that jazz. I'm still in the process of trying to rebuild Book Bookie's identity, so if you have any suggestions for sites or methods that may work or help me out in the slightest, feel free to contact me.

Also, since it's been a while, does anyone have any recommended books to read? You can either comment them below, send them via email through the contact form to your right, or connect with me on Goodreads.  I've recently taken a break from all the "adult" books and have reread "The Mortal Instruments" series by Cassandra Clare at least five times in the past few months. I'm also currently reading the "Vampire Academy" series by Richelle Mead (which I absolutely love, to be completely honest).

Thanks for reading and not giving up on me completely!

Cover Reveal & Much (Much) More: "Secret Book #1" by Whitney Gracia Williams

I  know, I know...it's been way too long since I've posted last (I think it's been pretty much two whole months).  If you've been following me on my Facebook page, then you know it's because I've been super busy with the end of the school year and whatnot, so I've been having to put a lot more time into being able to graduate than reading. Regardless, I'm here now.

SO, as the title of my post states, Whitney has finally graced us with the cover for her "Secret Book #1" that we've been hearing all about on her Facebook updates (and on her blog). Along with the cover, we also get to find out that "Secret Book #1" is no longer called that, but it has a name!

What is it, you ask?

Well, to be honest, why would I tell you....




...when I can SHOW you!

Clicking on this cover will take you to the Goodreads page.

Doesn't it look incredible? And I'm assuming that by the new title, "Sincerely, Carter", that THAT handsome hunk of man must be Carter...and I definitely can't wait to meet him. ;) I also noticed that the blue theme is still there...except it's blue and white, not blue and black like Whitney's "Reasonable Doubt" series (which, by the way, I will be mentioning at the end of this post, so keep reading to find out).

Now, having a cover and a title is amazing, but what could be more amazing? 

How about a blurb?

Would that make it more amazing?



Well, let me give that to you too.

~
Blurb

Just friends.
We’re just friends.
No, really. She’s just my best friend...

Arizona Turner has been my best friend since fourth grade, even when we “hated” each other. We’ve been there for one another through first kisses, first “times,” and we’ve been each other’s constant when good relationships turned bad. (We even went to colleges that were minutes away from each other…)
Throughout the years, and despite what anyone says, we’ve never crossed the line.

Never thought about it.
Never wanted to.
Until one night changed everything.
At least, it should’ve...

Just friends.
We’re just friends.
I’m only saying this until I figure out if she’s still “just” my best friend…

~


Doesn't it just sound incredible? And if you're familiar with any of Whitney's other books, then you know it's going to be just as amazing. I can't wait!

Lastly, in order to make you all happy, I know another piece of information that might be useful.


"Sincerely, Carter" is aiming to be released some time in April 2015. 
That means it's a matter of weeks, or even days!


So, if you haven't already added "Sincerely, Carter" (or formerly known as "Secret Book #1") to your Goodreads list, I suggest you follow this link and do so now.

Since we're on the topic of Whitney G., I thought I would bring up that we're still waiting for her other new book, "Turbulence", to be released! Come to think of it, my last post was actually the cover reveal for it...


Clicking on the cover will take you to the Goodreads page.

Synopsis

Fuck me recklessly
Kiss me harder.
Take me again and again…

He and I met under a cloud of clichés:
Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy fucks girl.
Our story was supposed to end right after the orgasms, right after we went our separate ways.

But then we saw each other again…
And neither of us could walk away.

Our rules were simple.
Our passion was scandalous.
Our hearts were supposed to be safe…

But when you find something so all-consuming—something so intoxicating and inescapable, you’ll risk everything you've ever had, even if you’re destined to crash and burn.

This is us.
This is our messed up love.
This is turbulence.

~




If you haven't added "Turbulence" to your Goodreads list either, I suggest you literally go and do it now. Like right now. Here, I'll even help you out: GO DO IT NOW!

With ALL of that said, I think that was the mother of all posts that made up for my time away and it gave me the chance to pay homage to the lovely Whitney G. for all that she has done so far!

As always, thank you very very much for reading! And since I'm on a thanking note, I just wanted to thank all of you who literally gave me 100 likes on my blog Facebook page literally overnight. I'm not quite at 500 yet, but it is very incredible to see all the love! 


Remember, if there is anything you'd like to see or read on this blog or on my Facebook page, feel free to contact me via the form to the right or on Facebook. Also, if you have a review you'd like me to post on here for you, just send me the review! I do not mind guest bloggers at all (besides, the more the merrier!)

Cover Reveal: "Turbulence" by Whitney G.

If you haven't read the last post that I made, literally half an hour ago, you should know that it also has to do with Whitney Gracia Williams, so I suggest you check it out here. Just as I said in that post, I absolutely love Whitney and she is most definitely one of my all-time favourite authors, so I definitely recommend reading her books.

As for this lovely book, I cannot wait for it to come out, or at least tell us when it's being released! This is such a tease...I mean...just look at that cover. If you've read her "Reasonable Doubt" series, then you're probably in the same position that I'm in...in dire need of some more Whitney G.!

Release: "Mid Life Love" (Boxed Set) by Whitney G.

Before anything, I just wanted to apologize for my lack of existence over the last little while. As a follow-up, I don't want to apologize for this post being the one breaking my hiatus because Whitney is one of my all-time favourite authors. If you haven't given any of her books a read, please do because you won't be disappointed and this is your chance to start!

Clicking on the cover will take you to "Mid-Life Love"s Goodreads page.

Title: Mid Life Love Boxed Set
Author: Whitney G.
 Publication Date: January 29, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Buy it today: Amazon

BOOK 1: "Mid Life Love" 

If you'd asked me what love was two years ago, I probably would've said, 'It's this amazing feeling that obsesses and possesses you; it's what me and my husband currently have.' If you ask me that same question today, I'll say, 'Please get the hell out of my face.’ 

Claire Gracen's life is picture perfect. Her career as a marketing director is on the brink of being legendary, and her marriage to her high school sweetheart has never been stronger. No, wait. It has. It used to be amazing and fulfilling, but one day Claire realizes that she's been living a lie and her best friend and husband have committed the ultimate betrayal. 

Broken and depressed, Claire is in need of something new—new city, new job, new friends. 

When she happens to attract the interest of the sexiest man she's ever met, a man significantly younger than her, she immediately turns him down—only to later discover that this man is Jonathan Statham, self-made billionaire and CEO of Statham Industries. Her boss. 

Jonathan Statham is unlike any man she's met before. He's used to getting whatever he wants—whenever he wants, and he isn't about to take no for an answer. 

Sexy, unpredictable, and charmingly clever, Mid Life Love is a story that will captivate you, entertain you, and force you to fall deeply in love with the characters. 

~

BOOK 2: "Mid Life Love: At Last" 

If you ask me if Jonathan Statham makes me happy, I’ll say ‘Absolutely. He’s the man of my dreams and I can’t wait to marry him.’ If you ask me why my ex-husband Ryan is currently one inch away from me—staring into my eyes and pressing his hand against my cheek, I’ll say, ‘I have no fucking idea…’ 

Claire Gracen finally has the life she’s always wanted: A career she loves, a man who’s willing to do any and everything for her, and friends that show her the true meaning of the word ‘friendship.’ 

As she and Jonathan prepare to make the ultimate commitment to one another and plan the wedding of her dreams, she quickly realizes that the hurtful past she left behind in Pittsburgh is a lot closer than she thought. 

Sexy, unpredictable, and as charmingly clever as Mid Life Love, ‘At Last’ will captivate you from the first page and never let you go.

Coming Soon: "A Christmas to Love You" by Megan Smith

Exciting News!!

Megan Smith posted on her Facebook page that she's releasing a novella in the Love Series!! If you don't remember, I had reviewed the first three books in the series already (I got sort of side tracked in the middle of the fourth book, "Let Me Love You", but I will eventually finish it...especially now that there's going to be something to read when I finish it). If you'd like to check them out, the links to the posts are below. You can also follow the links in the posts to purchase them on Amazon or Kobo.


"Trying Not to Love You" (Love Series 1)
"Easy to Love You" (Love Series 2)

"Hard To Love You" (Love Series 3)
~

Now, for this lovely novella, are you ready for this? 

It's called "A Christmas to Love You", and I assume it's meant to be read after the fourth book, "Let Me Love You", because it's been titled as Love Series 4.5 (which is exactly why I desperately need to finish the fourth one now so I can continue on to read this one).  As of yet, there are no links for Goodreads, Amazon, Kobo, etc. but I will definitely update when they are available. All we know, according to Megan's post, it will be releasing next week. No idea when or where, so keep your eyes open!

Clicking on the cover will take you to the Facebook post

How can they still be in love after all these years?

Andrew and Elle Cahill have been married for twenty-six years. They have a strong and healthy relationship along with a beautiful family. Join them and the rest of the Cahill’s this Christmas to hear about their epic love story and catch up with the rest of the crew.

Releasing next week.


~

So far, all we know is that it is focusing on the Cahill family, and I'm assuming it's in the present since it says "this Christmas" and I'm guessing it's told through the perspective of Andrew and Elle, MacKenzie's parents.  I've always wondered about their relationship because of certain things you learn while reading the series, so I can't wait to see what this has in store for us! :) 

Definitely a very exciting, and unexpected, Christmas gift! 

THANK YOU, MEGAN!
