Winner ANNOUNCED! Books to READ! Cover INFO & More BOOKS!

Congratulations to TaraUB who has won the copy of Eleanor & Park! Tara, please send me your full name and mailing address and we'll get you the copy of the book to you.

And for those of you who loved Tracey Garvis Graves' ON THE ISLAND, she has a new book coming out in September called COVET. I'm dying to read it, as I know all of you are.

THIS FRIDAY, March 8th, come back here for the COVER REVEAL!

Also they will reveal the cover on!

 Learn more on goodreads here. (

There will also be a chat with Tracey on March 15, which I'm totally excited about and details on that, along with more info on the cover reveal, excerpt release and other details for the goodreads event can be found here: (! ... They will be sharing the first THREE chapters, which I'm thrilled about!

You can also find me on goodreads too. I'm finally over there, although I'm not quite sure what I'm doing. But I think if you click here, you can be my friend on goodreads. I'm new at this.

I have some great books coming for you later this month, and here are some that are in the lineup, and here are some of what I'm reading, and what I'll be giving away if you want to get a sneak-peek of them on and goodreads!

The one that I'm currently reading that I cannot rave ENOUGH about is Meg Donohue's ALL THE SUMMER GIRLS which doesn't come out until May, and will be a perfect beach read for you, but OH MY GOSH, her writing! IS AMAZING. I am enthralled! I read some of her sentences and think, CRAP, I wish I could write like that. It's the kind of book I want to take a highlighter to! The story, the characters ... just really, really great. I'll tell you more about it when we get closer to a giveaway and a feature. I know, I know, I'm a tease!

The Lost Husband by Katherine Center

The Sunshine When She's Gone by Thea Goodman (this one is coming up soon!)

Ballrooms & Ugly Poodles: SemiTales of a Palm Beach Waitress by Katie Schnack (she reminds me of Laurie Notaro -- very funny!)

A Whole New You: Six Steps to Ignite Change for Your Best Life by Brett Bleumenthal (had I read this one when I first received it, I would be ON MY WAY to my best life! Oops! Procrastination much?!?!)

My Inappropriate Life by Heather McDonald

Dear Lucy by Julie Sarkissian

The Last Camellia by Sarah Jio -- You all KNOW how I love Sarah Jio's books. I cannot wait to crack open this one.

The Best of Us by Sarah Pekkanen -- and my OTHER Sarah! These are two books that I am saving for moments when I will NOT BE DISTURBED!

The Next Time You See Me by Holly Goddard Jones 

I'm also in the very last stages of getting my own novel finished, the cover is done and the final, FINAL edits are underway and I hope to have it up and available on Kindle/Amazon for purchase before the end of March. It's called What She Left Us and I'll have more details about that when I figure them out.

What are you currently reading and is there anything I'm not sharing on here that you would like to see? Look for the cover of COVET on Friday! I LOVE Tracey Garvis Graves and if you haven't read ON THE ISLAND and read about Tracey's amazing journey to publication, you've got to check her out!

Happy Reading!
