Confessions of a Book Addict

Sometimes, when I’m reading a book by the dim light of my bedroom lamp, I feel like a kid who is sneaking one more chapter in before bedtime. Honestly, what is sleep when you have a good book to read?

Random, but I love the five recommendations you gave to tooperfecttodie. I've read and loved 4/5 of the ones you listed and practically shove On the Island in my best friend's face every time I see it in a bookstore cause she still hasn't read it, lol. Thankfully I did manage to wrangle her into reading Perfect Chemistry. Anyway! Have a nice day! (Love your blog)

Hi! 

Thank you for this lovely message! I absolutely LOVED every one of those books I recommended and I’m so happy to see that a fellow book blogger has read most of them and love them, too! I hope your best friend finally reads On the Island because that book is fantastic and refused to let me sleep!

Happy reading and you have yourself a lovely night!

Oh, anything, it doesn't really matter.

The Reason I Stay by Patty Maximini 

Publication Date: September 10th 2014

Genres: Romance

Age Group: New Adult

Jack Daniels is the cure to all evils.

Sex should be casual and, preferably, anonymous.

Giving a damn is for nurses, philanthropists and suicide hotlines.

My name is Mathew Rogers and those are the values I built my adult life around. They are also the reason I had to forsake everything Iloved in Seattle and embark on a solitary road trip across the country, with no direction other than searching for the next small town, thenext girl, and the closest liquor store. 

Boredom, frustration and a series of unfortunate decisions led me to the rickety-ass town of Jolene, Alabama—a town I wanted to leave behind from the moment I passed the welcome sign. But it was there where I met her. The girl who made me question everything I’ve always believed in, and the only one who has ever had the power to break my heart. 

Her name is Lexie. 

She’s beautiful, and I’m pretty sure she hates me.

And for once in my life, I give enough of a damn that I keep finding a reason to stay.”

BOOK BLITZ+GIVEAWAY+GUEST POST!!
Phobic (The Forbidden Doors #1) by Cortney Pearson 
Publication Date: September 8th 2014
Genres: Horror, Romance
Age Group: Young Adult
“Fifteen-year-old Piper Crenshaw knows her house is strange. It’s never needed repairs since it was built in the 1800s, and the lights flicker in response to things she says. As if those things aren’t creepy enough, it’s also the place where her mother committed murder.
To prove she’s not afraid of where she lives, Piper opens a forbidden door, which hides a staircase that leads to the ceiling. That’s when the flashbacks of the original residents from 1875 start, including a love affair between two young servants. Each vision pulls Piper deeper into not only their story, but also her house. Piper confides in her best friend, Todd, whom she’s gradually falling for, but even he doesn’t believe her. At least, not until her house gets axed during a prank, and the act injures Piper instead, cutting a gash the size of Texas into her stomach.
Piper realizes her house isn’t haunted—it’s alive. To sever her link to it, she must unravel the clues in the flashbacks and uncover the truth about her mother’s crime, before she becomes part of her house for good.”

GUEST POST!
I’ve played the clarinet for 18 years, and I’ve always wanted to write a character with the same trait because it’s been such a huge part of my life for so long.
Piper plays the clarinet in PHOBIC and music for her provides an escape from the horrible life she’s had. Her mom’s in prison for murder, her dad pretty much ignored her after that (except for the times when he gave all these crazypants rules about places she wasn’t allowed to go IN HER OWN HOUSE), and then he died. Not to mention she’s hoping to win a scholarship that will provide a way to get her out of her creepy house for a while.

But it’s not just Piper. Who here doesn’t love music? *checks for any raised hands*
I don’t know about you, but not only do I love to play music I’ve constantly got music playing. While I work, while I clean, while I write, while I drive.
And this is something I’ve thought about, what my personal theme song would be. It’s so hard to choose just one! I know on the day I announced I’d be publishing PHOBIC it was this song:
BEST DAY OF MY LIFE—Glee Cast  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3hUlCV4Hlc
But music definitely needs to fit our moods, our current situations.
What about you? If you had to choose, what would your personal theme song be?
