drown in the beauty

okay, so the first thing that i wake up to this morning is the sound of pouring rain. like... what better way to wake up, right? ;p i seriously can't even explain to you how excited and on-cloud-nine happy this makes me. living in cali my whole life, we never got an over abundance of snow or anything like that so rain to me is a major deal! anyway, i'm in a super good mood this morning and it just keeps getting better and better.

recently, there have been a ton of bomb cover reveals. like more than you can probably count but to me, these are way significant because they're for a couple of my top, top, top favorite authors and series. i'm freaking the freak out! so, i'm gonna highlight a few of them and just basically flail all over the place!

so after i finished doing my happy dance about the rain and nearly running outside to soak myself, i came back, crawled into bed and went on facebook. the first story at the top of my timeline was the cover reveal for the resolution of callie & kayden by jessica sorensen. i was in shock because i had no idea that it was being revealed today so i was just... jaw-dropped!

so... the war rages

it's been a while since i've posted anything... see, this is where i become conflicted. i know that the universe doesn't revolve around my blog and no one has time to sit around to constantly refresh my blog for my next new post but... i feel like that; i feel this pressure to be current and relevant and present. i know that no one cares that the last five, six, seven posts have been blog tours, cover reveals, blitzes—all promo posts, but like i said, the pressure. i feel like i need to post something other than that because if i don't, everything becomes robotic and unattached. but at the same time, there are some readers who don't necessarily care about the personal stuff behind the blog. so... the war rages.

i just... it's so many things. i haven't really wanted to blog for a long time now. i feel that blogging has become the thing to do just because everyone's doing it and because of that, i sorta don't wanna do it anymore. it's lost its appeal. it's hard to find unique and original ideas/posts nowadays. everything's all the same. everything feels like a competition to be the loudest, to be the biggest fan, to be the biggest promoter, to be the biggest and the bestest and because everyone's posting the same kind of stuff, it's hard to not get drowned out. and maybe i'm throwing a fit because books over boys is fading. i don't know. i just... want to leave this world for a bit but how do i do that when i've been all in for so long now?

Publisher: Forever
Release date: January 7, 2014

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Ever After of Ella and Micha comes a story of scars, courage, and new possibilities . . .

Luke Price's life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. For Luke, meaningless relationships are a distraction-a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He desperately wishes he could forget his past, but it haunts him no matter what he does.

Violet Hayes has had a rough life. When she was young, she was left with no family and the memory of her parents' unsolved murders. She grew up in foster homes, living with irresponsible parents, drugs, and neglect, and trying to fight the painful memories of the night her parents were taken from her. But it's hard to forget when she never got closure-and she can't stop dreaming about what happened that tragic night. To make it through life, she keeps her distance from everyone and never allows herself to feel anything.

Then Violet meets Luke. The two clash instantly, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things they've never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you . . .

Bryn James can’t take much more. Smart, sexy Matthew DeLuca is everything she wants in a man, but he’s also her boss—the youngest, hottest vineyard owner in the Napa Valley—and he doesn’t see her as anything more than his shy assistant. That’s all about to change. Armed with a hot new look and an attitude to match, Bryn is determined to catch Matt’s eye… professionalism be damned.

With his winery’s grand reopening approaching, Matt is trying to stay focused, but Bryn is suddenly making it very difficult. He’s always thought her prim demeanor effortlessly sexy, but Matt can’t deny that her transformation is jaw-dropping …and going to make it very difficult to keep his hands to himself.

But when one thing leads to another and suddenly Matt is stripping Bryn bare, he’ll be faced with the biggest risk of his career—and his heart. Can he convince her—and himself—that this might just be more than a no-strings office affair?

About the book:

Title: Rome (Marked Men, #3)
Author: Jay Crownover
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks
Release date: January 7, 2014

Sometimes the wrong choice can be just right . . .

Fun and fearless, Cora Lewis knows how to keep her tattooed "bad boy" friends at the Marked in line. But beneath all that flash and sass is a broken heart. Cora won't let herself get burned again. She's waiting to fall in love with the perfect man—a baggage-free, drama-free guy ready for commitment. Then she meets Rome Archer.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He's stubborn, rigid, and bossy. And he's returned from his final tour of duty more than a little broken. Rome's used to filling many roles: big brother, doting son, supersoldier—but none of those fit anymore. Now he's just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the dark demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer through it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes a blinding flash of color in a sea of gray.Perfect may not be in the cards, but perfectly imperfect could just last forever . . .
