I Love Book Banners

I Love Book Banners

Altered Carbon is the first book in my favorite series with the uber psycho futuristic soldier Takeshi Kovacs – so if RKM ever asked me to tour Altered Carbon, I’d make a banner like this for him.  I wonder if he’d like it? Maybe I’m alone in this but I absolutely love book banners. I think they are the best part of the blog tour. I love banners period, I think. There’s just something cool about having your book on a banner that matches your cover, but it just a little bit different.  When I decided to start a book blog I had already written three books and I was looking to tour them on book blogs. One year ago I had never even heard of a book blog. Seriously. But the more I looked at these really cool book banners for tours on these blogs, the more interested in… Read more »

Stacking the Shelves #5

Stacking the Shelves #5

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! This post is WAAAAAAY over-due!  I think I might have three or four weeks here, so there are eighteen books – most of which came in for review via tours, some came from NetGalley, although I HATE uncorrected ARC’s so I might stop requesting from them, and three of them I won. I’ll start with those three: WON Shatter Me – I WON second prize in the Xpresso Reads Rockin’ the New Year Giveaway and I chose Shatter Me.  Ironically, I gave this book away recently in one of my… Read more »

BOOK BLITZ: The Boys of Summer by C.J. Duggan

BOOK BLITZ: The Boys of Summer by C.J. Duggan

The Boys of Summer  by C.J. Duggan  (Summer Series, #1) New Adult Contemporary Romance Publication date: December 17th 2012 It seemed only natural to nickname them the ‘Onslow Boys’. Every time they swaggered in the front door of the Onslow Hotel after a hard week’s work, their laughter was loud and genuine as they settled onto their bar stools. I peeked through the restaurant partition, a flimsy divider between my world and theirs. I couldn’t help but smile whenever I saw them, saw him … Toby Morrison. Quiet seventeen-year-old Tess doesn’t relish the thought of a summertime job. She wants nothing more than to forget the past haunts of high school and have fun with her best friends before the dreaded Year Twelve begins.To Tess, summer is when everything happens: riding bikes down to the lake, watching the fireworks at the Onslow Show and water bomb fights at the sweltering Sunday markets. How did she let her friends talk her into working? After first-shift disasters, rude, wealthy tourists and a taunting ex-boyfriend, Tess is convinced nothing… Read more »
