BEA 2014

Okay, so you all may know that Valerie is a complete book nerd. It's one of the many reasons I love her & me being her best friend (Hi! I'm Sabina, i'll be doing a full intro in a few days) she introduced me to authors I never ever would have heard of. So last year we embarked on a journey on a Saturday to BEA 2013. There was no blog at the time, there was just our love of books. We came home with 100+, went a little insane and were like crackheads trying to get their next fix as we rushed from one booth to another. This year? We were way more prepared, brought suitcases (because no one will know the pain of carrying 100 books in bags on your shoulders, wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy) & map out what's important & what will be important for the next 3 days.

So here we were, BEA 2014 on a Thursday and needless to say it did not disappoint.

One Name.

Jennifer L. Armentrout

Amazing Person. Amazing Author. Amazing Overall.

We both have signed ARC's of Stone Cold Touch. Yes I know, we're even jealous of ourselves.

Now this was definitely not the only book we were looking forward to today, there are a bunch that we got & all incredible authors (inner screams of joy.. just a bunch of inner screams of joy! LOL)

Signed Julia London "The Fall of Grace"
Lauren Dane's "The Best Kind of Trouble"
Signed Annette Herfkens "Turbulence" (True story of how the author survived a plane crash!)
Signed Jeaniene Frost "The Beautiful Ashes"
Signed Lynn Raye Harris "Dangerously Hot"
Signed Shannon Stacey "Falling for Max"
Signed Jennifer Probst "Executive Seduction" (Coolest lady.. EVER!)
Signed Heather Gudenkauf "Little Mercies"
Signed Robyn Carr "Four Friends"
Signed Adi Alsaid "Let's Get Lost" (Guy writing teen novel alert & he's cute!)
H.M. Ward "The Wedding Contract"
Signed Suzanne R. Krauss "To Vegas and Back" (Real life story about her housewife mother becoming a Vegas showgirl!)
Signed Pam Jenoff "The Winter Guest"
Stephanie Barron's "Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas"
Margaux Froley "Hero Complex"
Signed J.D. Netto's "The Whispers of the Fallen" and "Rebellion" (Usually not my style of books but Mr. Netto is easy on the eyes!)
Signed B.J. Daniels "Mercy"
Numerous Authors "Dreams of the Oasis Volume 4"
Heather Todd's "At First Sight"
Signed Paula Treick DeBoard "The Fragile World"
Signed Susan Howell's "Oil Rush"
Signed Ann Aguirre's "I Want It That Way"
Signed Jennifer L. Armentrout's "The Lux Beginnings" (Oh yeah..)
Signed Nancy Naigle "Mint Juleps and Justice" (This authors southern accent will make you beyond jealous!)
Gregory Funaro's "Alistair Grim's Odditorium"
Signed Julie Kagawa's "Talon"
Signed Dawn Metcalf's "Invisible"
Signed Robin Talley's "Lies we tell ourselves"
Signed Brenda Jackson's "A Man's Promise"
Signed Lori Foster's "No Limits" (Guy on this cover will make you feel things..)
Ruthie Knox's "Along Came Trouble"
Cindy Kirk's "The Husband List"
Signed Alexandra Adornetto's "Ghost House"
Michael Backes's "Cannabis Pharmacy"

And..

Last but not least..

Signed James Frey's "EndGame: The Calling"

Quick side note on James Frey, now I understand that he is a controversial author, some may debate whether he writes his own books, whether he tells the truth, etc. etc. etc. but as a person he is a very approachable man who made me an ice cream sandwich.. yep, you read that right & was more than glad to take a picture with me only to remember me later during his book signing. Overall, I cannot say anything about the book, I haven't gotten a chance to read it yet but as a person, he's definitely a really nice guy & from the impression I got, I have nothing but nice things to say about him.

Also we got a free Ebook, Sophie Davis's "Talented" which looks really good, paranormal YA's are sure our favorites.

Overall this entire day was a success for both me & Valerie, last year we may have been a little in over our heads because we grabbed every book in sight but this year we paced ourselves. It is all about reading the books, not collecting them for storage & we grabbed ones that we knew we couldn't wait to read when we got home. In fact, I've already started on "Stone Cold Touch"& let me tell you.. so far so goooooood!



All the Books we got at BEA 2014! (Sorry my camera was just not letting me prosper with nice photographs!)



Of course Jennifer L. Armentrout deserves her own photo of these fabulous books (btw the Lux Beginning's is holographic front & back.. it's so pretty to look at I just kept staring at it) & of course, "Stone Cold Touch" which is the continuation of "White Hot Kiss" (swoon)
"You're my Theo James of authors."

James Frey's "EndGame: The Calling" ARC, can't wait to read it!
"Ice Cream, Pictures & Books!"


Now we can't wait for tomorrow morning! And so it continues.. BEA 2014! You'll definitely hear more from us soon!

Stuck Up Suit by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

This was a DNF at 50% for me unfortunately but I am still writing about it on here because I do not think it was a bad book in fact before the 50% mark I was LOVING it, it's just that once a certain "problem" came I was really angry and upset since it was not something I enjoy when it happens in books and I just couldn't read any further. I will not post the spoiler on here but on my Goodreads account I did write why I stopped reading so if you do want to know what the "problem" was I will link my small review here so you can check it out. I still think if you don't get bothered by much when reading that you would love this story it really was a great story and I loved the hero and heroine A LOT! So check it out if you haven't already  <3
MY REVIEW - SPOILER

From theNew York TimesBestselling authors of Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel. 

It started out like any other morning on the train.

The Boss by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliot (Books 1-4) 4 1/2 stars

I've only done two really bad things in my life--secretly live in the maid's quarters of my beloved grams foreclosed beach house and lie to get a job as a personal assistant to billionaire Blake Carson.
My enemy, my lover, my savior. 
He's only two out of the three, if only I can figure out which two before I end up on the streets or in jail. 
Or worse. 
* If you like seductive serials from authors like Olivia Thorne, Hannah Ford, and Ainsley Booth...this is your kind of story.
So I officially had time to start reading again after my winter classes ended! I thought I'd start the year off by just picking something by reading no spoilers, no synopsis, just dive in and read and I was pleasantly surprised. I picked up a new serial series, The Boss by Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliot. Books one through four are already out and I knocked all four out in a day, each took about an hour or so to read. They were highly enjoyable and I think people who love a sexy jealous man with a str…

Currently Reading in Audiobook - Royally Matched

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.
He’s not handling it well.
Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him "space"—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:
Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. 
A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.
While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.
The more Henry gets t…
