Sophie Kinsella - Wedding Night Cover Pick & Reader Advisory Panel

Wedding Night paperback version to be released.
Vote for your favourite cover design at

Darker background gives it a more expensive look. It would also stand out on the shelves. Moreover, it is a wedding night. :)

Pink roses screams attention with it wedding bouquet. I would have picked Graphic Dress if the background is peach colour and the outline of the dress to be bolder with lacy details. It would definitely give it a very classy wedding look. 

The roses. It definitely stands out! We have yet to have a green cover. :)

This has got to be the toughest. It is all pretty. 

Final pic. Gotta be my favourite! Your ladies will definitely pick this! :) It goes with the chic-lit genre too!

If you are a fan of the author, you would love this. You can be more involved with the books than you ever imagined. Towards the end of the short survey, you can register yourself to be on the newly created Sophie Kinsella Reader Advisory Panel. 

The panel is set to assist creating dialogue between the reader, Sophie Kinsella and the publishing team. On top of that....goodies!

Back To Life by Danielle Allen

Back To Life
Danielle Allen

Walking up to me with his usual confident stride, my breath caught in my chest. Looking unnervingly handsome and unbelievably sexy, he wore burgundy tailored dress pants with a white button up shirt. His burgundy, dark grey and white striped tie was still tucked into his burgundy vest. His grey jacket was unbuttoned and completed his look. “Sahara, this is for you,” Ty lifted the box up higher. “And you will accept it. What you give me pales in comparison to all of this. Take your gift,” he commanded with a sexy smile that sent volts of energy through my body.

Sahara met an accident after a party during her freshman year. It costed the life of her father. It costed lifetime opportunities of her loved ones; her bestfriend and her first love. She put all the blame onto herself. She took off after the accident. Moved to a different state but never stopped punishing herself for the accidents.

For 10 years, she avoided talking about the incident. She avoided contacts with her bestfriend Emily. She avoided feeling happy. It is simply her way of punishing herself for the accident she blamed herself for. She kept herself busy with studies and then work. She spent sleepless nights going back to the time when the accident happened. She avoided relationships as she felt she doesn't deserve feeling happy and that she destroys whoever she loves or loves her.

This ended when she bumped into a beautiful stranger, Tyree Barker. A handsome business owner living in the same building as her. She learned to live her fears and opened up to him like never before. The feelings were mutual. She learned to love. She eventually reconciled with her past.

While everything is going well, she left a little bit of her matter hidden from Tyree. Little did she know they were both doing the same. Will she be able to pick between the man who has always loved her of the mane who loves her for who she is now and gives her strength to live? Will they be able to make it through? Will they be able to resolve their past?

p/s: First book blog tour. Enjoying it! Never tried Danielle's writing but it is great. Made me feel sooooo in love. *tralalalala* I would have given it all the stars but I like sweet happy endings. I  hope there is a little sequel to this! :)

Sarah Addison Allen 2014 Books

If there is anything about Sarah Addison Allen, it has got to be magical.
I have been quietly wishing for 2014 to come faster so that I can get my hands on the new book titled Lost Lake.

Today, Sarah made an announcement of releasing a book before Lost Lake. :)
It is a short story meant to connect to Lost Lake. Title of the short story is Waking Kate.

Here is the AWESOME news.
It will be released for FREE on Amazon in January 2014!!!!
You can pre-order it now and have it delivered to your Kindle once released. *Soooo can't wait!*

Here's a shot of Sarah's announcement on her Facebook page.

Yes, I have pre-ordered! 

No Kindle? You could probably find an online converter to convert the format which is readable by your reader. Else, there is always Kindle for desktop. ;)

gigapedia Replacement

Good news to all who mourn over the "death" of gigapedia. I still mourn from time to time but I have learnt to be a pirate when the time calls for it; torrent. Though so, torrent sites are not very friendly with book searches. The ones we are used to are similar to browsing books in the library but virtual.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you :)
I would say this is the closest to gigapedia we ever get.

Upon hitting the URL, you will see the following. Here you have an option to either search for books by keywords or you can browse based on categories. To browse, mouse-over the text Books on the top right corner of the screen and select Browse.

There are many categories of books. Below is what it looks like.

In this example, I selected Baking. Results as following.
To download a book, simply click on the word Download beneath the title of the book. :)

Elegy by Amanda Hocking

Amanda Hocking

Gemma is running out of time. She has yet to find a way to destroy the scroll. Penn is desperately looking for her replacement. Harper is doing all she could even if it means she will be missing classes. Alex and Gemma has gotten back together and their love stronger than ever.

Thea is getting tired of Penn. With Liv in the picture, things are getting more difficult and getting more out of control. Liv is always hungry. More damage is done in Capri town. With Marcy and Lydia's help, they were able to trace Demeter which goes with the name Diana now. However, she is not willing to help break the curse. 

Gemma tried everything to break the curse but no luck. Daniel is getting deeper into the mess. Gemma can't help feeling guilty about how her loved ones have to sacrifice. When they have gotten rid off the evil sirens, everybody thought the curse has been broken. Gemma knew her life has come to an end as she gets weaker and weaker. Alex would not let her go easily. Together, the destroyed the scroll.

p/s: I love happy endings. This final book is a little slow in action but I am glad it all ends well. If there is anything I would like to change or add to the story, it would be that Kirby did not die and Natalie is back to her old self. Now that would be an absolute happy ending. Yes, I love happy endings. :)

Booking Through Thursday - 12092013

How much do you visualize when you read? Do you imagine faces for the characters? Can you see the locations in your mind’s eye? Or do you just plunge ahead with the story, letting the imagery fall to the wayside? 

My answer:
Can I say I imagine everything? For me, it is like watching a movie but with me walking through the scenes. :) Mostly, I visualize what the characters wear, how they speak, where they are and many more. This could be the reason why when I recall a scene, I couldn't tell if it was from a movie or from a book.

Tidal by Amanda Hocking

Amanda Hocking

Gemma is still trying hard to find a way to buy time to break the curse to have her life back. What she doesn't know is that Penn is just waiting for the right replacement before getting rid of her. Everyone is working hard to save Gemma. They have made more friends in order to find the way out for Gemma.

While Gemma is busy looking for the scroll, Daniel made a pack with Penn to keep Gemma and Harper safe. This was kept a secret. Gemma searched highs and lows for the scroll while Penn did the same for her replacement. All Gemma needed is time but time is running out. She is trying her very best to keep Harper out of it. Her father could not take any more of the nuisance. Towards the end, she confronted. Now that the truth is out, she has one less thing to worry about but it only adds more headcount to worry about her.

In this third book, it is all about searching and buying time. There are a little bit of action here and there but not much movements in the storyline. 

p/s: Cant' wait to get into the final book! :) May it has a happy ending.
