The End is Here: Shadows in the Silence by Courtney Allison Moulton



Cover Reveal: The Space Between by Victoria H. Smith


Today's second reveal is another New Adult that I'm dying to get my hands on! After seeing the cover, I really just want it on my shelf; the colors mesh so well together and it's just... so much love!

There's a little green, a little purple, and a splash of pink -- eep! I mean, hello, green is my most favorite color, combine it with purple and you just have the cutest combo! The pink just adds that final touch that will leave you jaw-dropped, pretty much!

Enough of my talking (because you probably won't get what I'm talking about it until you see it for yourself), here's the gorgeous cover to Victoria H. Smith's The Space Between!

Ermahgerd, did you see the shoes? All the want.

Cover Reveal: The Only Exception by Magan Vernon


More covers to grace all your pretty pupils today! I so seriously can't get enough of them, lol! I'm pretty sure there is at least one cover reveal every week here on BOB. Also, a lot of them have been revolving around New Adult. If you haven't picked up a NA novel, you must put that on your 2013 bucket list and if you need any suggestions, *points to self* I'm so your girl!

Today's reveal is Magan Vernon's New Adult, The Only Exception. I've yet to read one of Magan Vernon's novels but hey, might as well make this my first because you know... it's NA and all! ;)

Breaking Point Blog Tour: Book Playlist + Giveaway



Welcome to my stop on the Breaking Point blog tour hosted by the fabulous Jean BookNerd. I love book playlists so ta-da *waves arms wildly* today's stop is featuring Kristen Simmons's playlist for Breaking Point, book two in the Article 5 series, as well a tour wide giveaway that is just way too epic to pass up!

Title: Breaking Point
Author: Kristen Simmons
Publisher: Tor Teen
Release date: February 2, 2013


The second installment in Kristen Simmons's fast-paced, gripping YA dystopian series.

After faking their deaths to escape from prison, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings have only one goal: to lay low until the Federal Bureau of Reformation forgets they ever existed.

Near-celebrities now for the increasingly sensationalized tales of their struggles with the government, Ember and Chase are recognized and taken in by the Resistance—an underground organization working to systematically take down the government. At headquarters, all eyes are on the sniper, an anonymous assassin taking out FBR soldiers one by one. Rumors are flying about the sniper’s true identity, and Ember and Chase welcome the diversion….

Until the government posts its most-wanted list, and their number one suspect is Ember herself.

Orders are shoot to kill, and soldiers are cleared to fire on suspicion alone. Suddenly Ember can’t even step onto the street without fear of being recognized, and “laying low” is a joke. Even members of the Resistance are starting to look at her sideways.

With Chase urging her to run, Ember must decide: Go into hiding…or fight back?

All the Broken Pieces Blog Tour: Review + Interview

Photobucket

Welcome to my stop on the All the Broken Pieces blog tour hosted by Entangled Teen. For today's stop, I've got an awesome interview with author, Cindi Madsen, as well as my review plus a giveaway so don't you dare miss any of it! ;)

All the Broken PiecesTitle: All the Broken Pieces
Author: Cindi Madsen
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Release date: December 11, 2012


What if your life wasn’t your own?

Liv comes out of a coma with no memory of her past and two distinct, warring voices inside her head. Nothing, not even her reflection, seems familiar. As she stumbles through her junior year, the voices get louder, insisting she please the popular group while simultaneously despising them. But when Liv starts hanging around with Spencer, whose own mysterious past also has him on the fringe, life feels complete for the first time in, well, as long as she can remember.

Liv knows the details of the car accident that put her in the coma, but as the voices invade her dreams, and her dreams start feeling like memories, she and Spencer seek out answers. Yet the deeper they dig, the less things make sense. Can Liv rebuild the pieces of her broken past, when it means questioning not just who she is, but what she is?

Down to You Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway



Welcome to my stop on the Down to You blog tour hosted by AToMR Tours. I am a huge fan of M. Leighton so I was thrilled to have a spot on this tour. For today's stop, check out my review as well as the tour giveaway!

Down to You (The Bad Boys, #1)Title: Down to You (The Bad Boys, #1)
Author: M. Leighton
Publisher: Self-published
Release date: September 23, 2012


The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not.
Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white. But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins.

Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her. Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together.

Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them. Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire. She wants them both. And they want her. How will she ever choose between them?

Q&A with Jen Minkman + Giveaway

Author Interview-1 photo AuthorInterview-1.jpg

Jen Minkman, author of Shadow of Time has stopped by Books Over Boys for an author Q&A plus a giveaway!

What about writing captivates you the most?
The fact that you can create entire worlds of your own, and that sometimes the people you write about even start doing things you don’t expect. It is almost like magic.

What inspired you to write Shadow of Time?
Reading New Moon and realizing that Bella wouldn’t end up with the hunky Native American in the end. I had my mind set on writing a paranormal romance novel where the girl would end up with someone from that background!

Angelfire Read-Along: Week 7 Recap + Trivia Quiz | #ReaditandReap



So, was this week not totally crazy or what? We are *this* close to the end of Wings of the Wicked that if this past week for Ellie and crew wasn't crazy, then the fact that book two is almost over, is. Actually, chapters #18-25 are so crazy (so crazy that you just couldn't take it) that you probably finished the book by now and is impatiently awaiting January 29th. ;)

Speaking of the end, as we all know, Shadows in the Silence is the last book in this trilogy. Because of that, CAM will be having a release day launch party in celebration of.

You guys have no idea how badly I wish I could attend this par-tay. I mean, I'm like a huge, huge, huuuuuuuge fan of this series and this author that it's such a shame I can't -- well, more like I won't be able to -- attend. For one, I've never traveled five states (how far is michigan from cali, anyway?) away from my home state. Like ever. Secondly, I've never been on an airplane (i frickin' know, right?!). Lastly, I've never traveled by myself... not that I would have to travel by myself or anything but anyway, you see what I'm saying?

I've asked my sisters: If I wanted to go to Michigan, would you help me get there? Their responses: For what? Me: Well duuuuuh, a book signing, what else?! Their responses: OF COURSE.

And no, not "Of course, then! Let's get your airplane ticket ready!" More like, "Of course, you would go outta state for a signing!" Anyway, because there's a slim chance to zilch that I'll be there that night, what's to say you -- yes, you reading this screen -- can't attend? So, this is me passing on the information, the deets, the 411.

Normalish Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway


Welcome to my stop on the Normalish blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours. This Contemporary Young Adult by Margaret Lesh was released in October of 2012 and I was thrilled to be a part of the tour because I am a huge fan of contemporary. For today's stop, check out my review as well as the tour giveaway!

NormalishTitle: Normalish
Author: Margaret Lesh
Publisher: Musa Publishing
Release date: October 5, 2012


Fifteen-year-old Stacy questions the strange world of high school, love, her role in a harsh universe, and life, in Normalish.

People tell you high school's so great and wonderful, but they're lying. It's mostly horrible and full of disappointment. It sucks. Your best friend abandons you. The jerk you're in love with pretends to be into you, and then the big dump. The boy you've really clicked with as a friend decides to go all crushy over you, so you break his heart just like yours was -- smashed into little pieces. Your sister goes mental, and you get involved with a guy who’s even crazier than she is (who you know is a very bad idea, but you do it anyway). Math only adds another stink of failure to the whole thing.

High school blows. Just ask freshman Stacy. She’d want you to know.

The Collector Excerpt #2 | #VMafia


The V Mafia is honestly one of the coolest things I've had the honor of being a part of. Normally, I don't do street teams and all that because it's just too much to keep up with. But this fambam thing we've got going on over at the #VMafia is pretty darn sweet. And it's seriously such an honor.

Some time... a while back, Victoria Scott challenged the V Mafia to increase The Collector's adds on Goodreads up to 4,000 and more. (Not only did we hit that mark, but currently, 4,025 people want to read about Dante -- freak the freak out! *pats #VMafia members on the back* We're so awesome!) The incentive with accepting that challenge and achieving that goal was an exclusive excerpt for V Mafia fambam members to post and share on their sites.

This morning, I woke up to an email from the V Mafia with an excerpt that I cannot wait to share with you (one that i cannot get enough of right now -- so good).

Cover Reveal: Facade by Nyrae Dawn


Lol, I love my cover reveals, don't I? ;) I am especially stoked for this one because not only do I love the New Adult genre and Nyrae Dawn but Charade (Games, #1) was... so, so, so good and amazing!

I've read majority of Nyrae Dawn's novels and after finishing them, I'm always left with this feel good feeling and it always leaves me wanting more and more. That was no doubt the case with Charade as well. After finishing it, I wasn't sure if there was going to be a sequel or whatnot but well... look at this post, what do you know?

I am so excited and eagerly awaiting Facade's release. Like... no joke. Now, let's talk about the cover a bit. Charade's cover captured Cheyenne and Colt perfectly, straight down to a T. When I opened up my email containing the cover for Facade, I was blown away. I just recall going... GASP. It's gorgeous and like I told Nyrae, it's definitely my favorite cover of all her novels. Now, it's your turn to ogle the heck out of this cover. Enjoy!

Cover Reveal: Hard to Resist by Shanora Williams


This is the second and final cover reveal for the day. I came across Shanora Williams via Facebook. She contacted me through a message and from there it piqued my interest enough to check her out. Upon visiting her blog, I stumbled into the first two chapters of Hard to Resist. After reading those two teaser chapters, I was and am stoked to read this one.

I mean, where chapter two ended couldn't have been a more perfect place to make me want to read it that much more. Oh my gosh, I don't even know if I made sense there, lol. Anyway, if you'd like, you can check out chapters one and two right here.

Cover Reveal: Changed by Rose J. Bell


Today, I have a couple of covers I'd like to share with you. These reveals frequent my blog quite a bit but I think they're one of the best ways to help bring attention to books. I mean, not only do they sound good but they're all pretty looking.

Today's first reveal is about angels and I absolutely love that genre. I love the font on this cover and the girl looks like she's out to kill... which is totally fitting for her character. And the blue in her eyes just adds that finishing touch. I can't wait to check this one out!

Q&A with Alexandra Monir + Giveaway

Timeless_zps887fdda9

Alexandra Monir, author of Timeless and Timekeeper (out today!), stops by Books Over Boys to give insight into her work day, when she's busy bringing those memorable characters like Michele and Philip to life! She also shares tips for aspiring writers.

What is a typical writing day like for you?
Every day is different! When I’m on a deadline I can be crazy-disciplined, sitting at the computer with my headphones on for long hours, totally in the zone. But most days are a much more balanced combination of researching what I’m writing about, spending a few hours writing or revising, and taking meetings and doing business-y stuff. The only constants in my day-to-day writing process are my MacBook Pro and my headphones! (I always listen to music while I write.)

Angelfire Read-Along Week Six: Chapters #9-17 Discussion Post | #ReaditandReap



Hello, Little Reapers! Welcome back to the sixth week of the Angelfire Read-Along. We are well into Wings of the Wicked, book two in the series. I was just bookmarking my copy earlier and found out that chapters one through seventeen make up a huge half of the book, more than half, actually. Speaking of half, that means we are almost through this month which also means that this read-along is almost at its end. Oh my sweet goodness, that also means that Shadows in the Silence is that much closer to being in my hands. Aah, talk about freaking the freak out!

Hey, fun tidbit for you guys. On the same exact day that Shadows in the Silence hits stores (1/29), the paperback of Wings of the Wicked (with all these super duper sweet extras) will be releasing as well. Talk about a double win! I mean, this might not be such a big deal to those of you who already own the hardcover copy of book two, but I'm just freaking out because I have like... every version of the books in this series so I so seriously cannot wait.

Cover Reveal: Never Forget by Emma Hart


Recently, I stumbled upon Emma Hart via Twitter where we chatted up a few conversations involving babies and their dreams, lol. From those tweets, it lead me to her blog where I found a few teasers she had posted about Never Forget. Because it got my attention, I decided to take part in the cover reveal to hopefully bring it to my readers' attention as well.

Wow, I just realized it was all like a domino effect. How cool.

Book Review: A Dance with Darkness by Courtney Allison Moulton

Title: A Dance with Darkness
Author: Courtney Allison Moulton
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release date: January 2, 2013



Find Courtney Allison Moulton online: Blog | Website | TwitterFacebook

There were shadows in this alley that no light touched, and where there was no light, anything could hide.

At the end of the fourteenth century, angelic reapers struggle to defend London against a legion of the demonic who have their sights set on claiming human souls and ancient relics for a dark purpose. Madeleine, a young but powerful warrior, is duty-bound to fight the demonic, and she lives for this pursuit above all else. Then, on a routine night of tracking, she is ambushed by a cadre of reapers and, though she defeats them all, she is left wounded and at the mercy of their lord, the notorious Bastian.

Madeleine is astonished when Bastian lets her live. She goes deeper into the world of the demonic and is shocked to meet him again-this powerful reaper whose touch makes her restless and gives her a thrill unlike anything else. When they fall into a dangerous clandestine affair, her head and her heart must wage their war: can their love overcome his demonic nature? Will her dance with darkness burn her or bring Bastian into the light?

With scorching romance and fantastic action, this original novella is a prequel to Courtney Allison Moulton's gripping and epic Angelfire series.
