Origin Teaser!

Yes, this is a snapshot from the 'Laptop Scene.'
As you all probably know by now, I am a HUGE fan of the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Heck, I'm fan of anything JLA writes!

But, for the past 4 months I have been living in absolute AGONY.
 
Why?
Oh, I'll tell you why.
It's because Mrs. Armentrout finished off Opal with the absolute cliffhanger of all cliffhangers.
 
And do you know what I do?
I torture myself by re-reading that ending again..... and again..... and again.....
It's like I expect the outcome to change the second fourth sixth time around.
But it doesn't.
It never does.
 
Just when I'm starting to put it out of to the back of my mind........
THIS HAPPENS:
 
I can't...... I can't even...... WHY?!?!
Jennifer:


 
I need that book! I don't want it. I literally need it, with every fiber of my being......
 
Now, all I can do is wait.
Wait for the cover.
Wait for more teasers.
Wait for an ARC. *fingers crossed*
Wait for the release...... WHICH IS STILL FOUR MORE MONTHS AWAY!

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout writing as J. Lynn
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Publication Date: July 30, 2013

Synopsis: For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn't anything new. They'd been best friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Somewhere over the years, she fell for him and fell hard. The big problem with that? Kyler puts the 'man' in man-whore. He's never stayed with a girl longer than a few nights, and with it being their last year in college, Syd doesn't want to risk their friendship by declaring her love.

Kyler has always put Syd on a pedestal that was too high for him to reach. To him, she's perfect and she's everything. But the feelings he has for her, he's always hidden away or focused on any other female. After all, Kyler will always be the poor boy from the wrong side of tracks, and Syd will always be the one girl he can never have.

But when they're stranded together at a posh ski resort due to a massive Nor'easter, there's nothing stopping their red-hot feelings for each other from coming to the surface.

My Date with Kaidan Rowe

Thanks to the lovely Lisa @ A Life Bound By Books, I won a virtual date with Kaidan Rowe! The hottie from The Sweet Evil trilogy by Wendy Higgins.

In case you need proof of his hotness, here ya go:

AND NOW, our date:

Kaidan: Hallo Kristen, how are you, luv?

My Internal Thoughts: Oh. My. God. KAIDAN ROWE just called me "luv."

Me: Hi Kaidan! :)) I'm doing great! How about you?

Kaidan: Doing well thanks. This isn't awkward at all, is it?? Never had a virtual "date." ;)

Me: No, not in the least! ;) And this, too, is my first virtual "date." I'm not quite sure what the proper etiquette is.

Kaidan: Well I've been threatened with my life to behave as nicely as possible, so I'll give it a try. I think I'm more fun in person, ha

My Internal Thoughts: There's really no need to behav-

Me: And who, pray tell, was brave enough to threaten you? :P

Kaidan: Oh, just Wendy. She terrifies me a little If I'm being honest lol

Me: Did Wendy also forbid you from sharing any teasers from Sweet Peril?   ;)

Kaidan: Hm...I know she's shared some on her blog so I suppose I can get away with answering some burning questions if you have any. ;)

Me: Well, I was wondering how you feel about Anna traveling the world with Kopano? Any jealousy, perhaps? ;)

Kaidan: Doesn't bother me much. Good for them. They're probably "meant to be" and all that rubbish.
I only want to kill him the tiniest bit. Every minute. Kidding, kidding, of course. -__-
 
Me: Oh, Kai..... is someone in denial?
And don't worry, I'll be sure to call Kopano a wanker on your behalf if he tries to make a move on Anna. :P
 
Kaidan: Ugh, God, I can't think of him making a move. Probably too polite for that anyhow.
Right then. I'm going to turn my music up a bit louder to go to my happy place lol.
Oh, are you on twitter? I'm going to tweet that I'm on a virtual date. Should amuse my mates
 
Me: Yes, I am on twitter. I believe I follow you. ;)
@kmichelle_10
 
Kaidan: I suck at twitter - rarely get on there, but I just tweeted so I suppose that's my quota for the week. Nice.
So, what else do you want to know? I'm feeling uncharacteristically open. I wouldn't blame you for taking advantage of me in my vulnerable state.
 
My Internal Thoughts: Vulnerable state......
 
Me: Ha! I find it hard to believe that you could be taken advantage of.  :P  But, since you insist, what exactly were you thinking when Anna drove away in that cab after what happened in that club? O.o

Kaidan: Oh, God, you've gone straight for the jugular. Who are you, Oprah Winfrey?!?! Ha.
Okay, I'll tell you what I told Anna. That was the worst bloody night of my life.
And you're right, I'm only taken advantage of when I allow it, which I suppose is technically never. ;)
 
Me: I'm afraid not, but maybe your next virtual date will be with Oprah Winfrey. lol
Awwww, I'm sorry. **virtual hug**
I so knew it...... :P
Okay, I have another vital question. I don't suppose you know where Wendy keeps her secret stash of Sweet Peril ARCs? Or maybe you could provide a map?  ;)
 
Kaidan: From what I hear those bastards over at the publishers are stingy as shite (she'd never say so in such terms, but I can read between the lines.)
One more month and you'll know all my dirty little secrets, Kristen. Do you think you can handle it? Not sure I can. Bit late for regrets now, though!
Well, thanks for the date, luv. I'm patting myself on the back because I didn't ask you to get naked even once! And I'm not asking now. At all.
*clears throat*
I'd better sign off, yeah?
 
Me: Don't you worry, I can definitely handle it! And there's only 35 more days till the release (not that I'm counting). Well, thanks for the best virtual date ever! And I really appreciate you not asking me to get naked- it must have taken a lot of restraint. lol
 
Bye!
 
Kaidan: Ha! The pleasure was mine. Thanks. ;)
~Kai

Title: Tragic
Author: J.A. Huss
Series: Rook and Ronin, #1
Publication Date: May 20, 2013

Synopsis: Rook Walsh is TRAGIC

Because life so far – just sucks. Some girls get parents. Rook got the foster care system. Some girls get Prince Charming. Rook got an abusive frog. Some girls get lucky…

Rook got a second chance.

And she took it. Because when fate throws you a bone – you grab it with both hands and run.

Antoine Chaput knows the minute he spies Rook in his photography studio that she’s got The Look. The dark and desperate look he must have to land the exclusive TRAGIC media contract.

Rook is paired up with top model, Ronin, and he’s everything her abusive ex-boyfriend wasn’t. Patient, gentle, happy, attentive, and sexy! He knows exactly what to do to make Rook blush for Antoine’s portfolio.

Rook’s luck changes in an instant and suddenly she’s the darling of the modeling world. It’s a dream job to go with a dream guy and all she has to do is look pretty and follow directions. But there’s always a price to pay – and Rook is about to get the bill.

About the Author: J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.

Author: Kristen Simmons
Series: Article 5, #2
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication Date: February 12, 2013

Synopsis: 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?

Title: Dark Triumph
Author: R.L. LaFevers
Series: His Fair Assassin, #2
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Books
Publication Date: April 2, 2013

Synopsis: Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons.

But those assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

This heart-pounding sequel to Grave Mercy serves betrayal, treachery, and danger in equal measure, bringing readers back to fifteenth century Brittany and will keep them on the edge of their seats.

Not afraid to raise the stakes, Phoenix seemingly holds all the power, always one step ahead. And when he puts the final pieces of the prophecy together, it doesn't take him long to realise exactly who he needs in order to open the gates of Hell.

With the help of surprising new allies, ancient prophecies are deciphered, a destination set and, after a shattering confrontation with her father, Violet leaves for the islands of Greece without knowing if she will have a home to return to...

Blog Tour: The Crimson Hunt by Victoria H. Smith (Author Interview + Giveaway)

To visit the other blogs participating in the tour go HERE.

Title: The Crimson Hunt
Author: Victoria H. Smith
Series: Eldaen Light Chronicles, #1
Publication Date: November 8, 2012

Synopsis: College junior Ariel Richmond is working on year three of Project Normalcy.

Her house reeks of keggers past and her bestie is just a slight bit vulgar. But the thing is—they both aid in making life refreshingly uneventful.

So much for hard-earned mediocrity when Luca Grinaldi appears on the scene.

Luca’s sudden presence on campus is hard to ignore. Those bright eyes act like a beacon to unsuspecting females, and with features like his, he’s got to be moonlighting for GQ. Luca hopelessly captivates Ariel with his confidence and charisma, but the mysteries surrounding him make him nearly untouchable. And just when Ariel grows close enough to unlock his secrets, a tragic event sends her life in a downward spiral.

That steady life is no longer an option and allies quickly become scarce. The mysterious Luca seems to be the only one willing to help her—but with that trust comes the burden of his secrets. He has a dark mission of otherworldly proportions, and is willing to sacrifice as many lives as it takes to see it completed.

Gone are the days of simply maintaining normalcy, and if Ariel isn’t cautious with her trust, so soon may be her future.


About the Author: Victoria H. Smith has a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. She puts it to good use writing romance all day. She resides in the Midwest with her Macbook on her lap and a cornfield to her right. She often draws inspiration for her stories from her own life experiences, and the twenty-something characters she writes give her an earful about it. In her free time, she enjoys extreme couponing, blogging, reading, and sending off a few tweets on Twitter when she can. She writes new adult fiction romance in the sub-genres of science fiction, urban fantasy, and contemporary, but really, anywhere her pen takes her she goes. 


Author Interview:

First off, I'd like to thank you for joining me on the blog today!

1. Describe The Crimson Hunt as a tweet (140 characters or less)!
A college student throws out all her hard-earned normality when she literally runs into the new guy on campus.

2. If you could re-title The Crimson Hunt what would you call it and why?
I would definitely call it The Brave Hunt. There’s a reference further in the book that tells why. Luca is more than who he seems and the internal conflict he has with that would make for a great title change-up!

3. What inspired you to start writing?
I wanted to read novels that related to people like me. I was in grad school and wanted something to read other than my boring textbooks. When I went in search for those types of books at my local bookstores, I literally couldn’t find anything. Searching online, I found one book about college students: Beautiful Disaster. I enjoyed that book so I looked for more, but couldn’t find any. That was when I realized books like this didn’t really exist. So I sat down, thought about what I was looking for in a book, and went to work. Three weeks later I had a novel. While I was in the process of publishing it, new adult literally evolved around me. Now, it’s everywhere and I’m so grateful for that.

4. What kind of research, if any, did you do for The Crimson Hunt?
As far as research, I just kind of thought about what type of book I wanted to write. I wasn’t much of a reader at the time. The last book I read was a few years prior. I am a movie buff though, so I went off that. I knew I wanted action, suspense, adventure, and a whole lot of love all set on a college campus. That’s really how the book happened. I did research online for specifics like academic period lengths and dates of major exams.

5. Do you have a specific place where you write?
When I wrote “Crimson” I was really into Barnes and Noble, mostly because of their delightful coffees :-) I wrote the whole novel there. Now, I have a mini office that my husband built for me.

6. What are you reading right now?
I’m kind of in between books right now, but I just finished Caught Up in Us by Lauren Blakely. I’m about to start Sins and Needles by Katrina Hale.

This or That...

Ebook or Real book?
Ebook. Easier to hold, lol

Twitter or Facebook?
As of now Facebook, but my loyalty always varies!

Chocolate or Vanilla?
Vanilla!

Past or Future?
Future for sure.

And just for fun- What is the strangest thing on your desk right now?
A stuffed M&M that I use for cleaning my monitor. That’s technically its function, but it is a weird theme for a monitor cleaner.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

Unremembered Monday


What is Unremembered Monday?

In Jessica Brody's new book, UNREMEMBERED (the first in a new sci-fi trilogy), the main character, Seraphina, wakes up among the wreckage of a devastating plane crash of which she is the only survivor. She has no memories of who she is or her life before the crash but she soon discovers that her memory loss is not simply amnesia. Someone has been erasing memories from her mind.

In honor of the book (which releases March 5!), every Monday, Jessica's featuring an awesome guest author (and book giveaway) and asking them to answer the following question: Which memory would you most like to be Unremembered?

She's also asked bloggers to write a post answering one or both of the following questions: Which memory or memories would you most like to be Unremembered? What book would you like to Unremember so you can read it again for the first time?

I have accepted her challenge [with GIFs].

What book would you like to Unremember so you can read it again for the first time?

My first reaction to this question was: How am I supposed to choose just one?!?!
 
There are hundreds of books that were so ahhh-mazingly awesome I wish I could relive the joy and magic of reading them again and again for the first time.
 
Like, for example:
 
Delirium by Lauren Oliver. This book made me fangirl BIG TIME.
 
But then I got to thinking......
 
Would I subject myself to reliving the horrible pain of that ending again?
HELL NO!!!
 
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green inspired me to live life more like Augustus Waters.
 
But again, heart-breaking ending.
So, no.

Or what about that book you really enjoyed. But picking it up in the first place was an anomaly. If you forget you read it, how can you be sure you'd pick up again?
Is your mind blown yet?
 
So while here are a lot books that I would love to re-read in theory. The reality can sometimes be quite different.
 
Besides if I could unremember things at will, wouldn't that be considered.......
I wouldn't want to be put to death for practicing witchcraft, because then how would I get any reading done?
 
Title: Unremembered
Author: Jessica Brody
Series: Unremembered, #1
Publisher: Farrar, Straus, & Giroux
Publication Date: March 5, 2013
 
Synopsis: When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.

Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.

Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.

Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?

From popular young adult author Jessica Brody comes a compelling and suspenseful new sci-fi series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.

Publication Date: September 30, 2008

Synopsis: Life after high school is tough enough without having to go 15 rounds with your inner demon. Val Shapiro is just your ordinary, part-demon, teenaged vampire hunter with a Texas drawl. And a pet hellhound named Fang. Soon enough she finds herself deep in the underbelly of the city, discovering the secrets of the Demon Underground and fighting to save those she loves. Whether they love her back or not.

Title: Try Me
Author: Parker Blue
Series: Demon Underground, #2
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books
Publication Date: February 19, 2010
 
Synopsis: This part-demon teen vampire fighter and her faithful terrier hellhound are once again patrolling the dark city streets of San Antonio, Texas. Val's hunky human partner, Detective Dan Sullivan, is giving her the cold shoulder since she beheaded his vampire ex-fiance. Vamp leader Alejandro is struggling to keep the peace between vamps, demons and humans. The mucho powerful Encyclopedia Magicka has been stolen, someone in the Demon Underground is poisoning vamps, and Val's inner lust demon, Lola, is getting very restless since Val's now partnered with sexy Shade, the shadow demon with the blond good looks of an angel. The second book in Parker Blue's Demon Underground urban fantasy series plunges readers deeper into a heady world of passion, friendship, intrigue and mystery.

Title: Fang Me
Author: Parker Blue
Series: Demon Underground, #3
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books
Publication Date: March 14, 2011

Synopsis: The vampires want it. The demons want it, too. And someone is willing to kill Val for it. Val and Fang have to find the powerful Encyclopedia Magicka before either of San Antonio's warring underworld factions locate it or the consequences will be deadly for the entire city. As usual, Val's vampire enemies (they still call her The Slayer) want her dead. Even some of her fellow demons may be less than trustworthy, since they'd like to grab the legendary book of spells before she does. Val has a personal claim to the Encyclopedia--her demon father left it to her when he died--but someone stole it recently. And that can't be good. Battling vamps and dodging demons, Val struggles to unravel the mystery and find the thief. At the same time, she's fighting her attraction to sweet, sexy Shade--her favorite shadow demon. Rumor has it that Val will lose her part-demon, vampire-fighting powers if she gives herself to him. With a crowd of vamps and demons out to trick her or kill her, it's not a good time for her to risk her job as the city's best vampire hunter by falling in love. The stakes are high and aimed right at her heart. But Lola, Val's hungry little lust demon, doesn't like being denied. Will Lola finally get her way? What's a part-lust-demon-teen supposed to do? Whatever it takes.
