J. Lynn - Stay with Me (Wait for You #3)

“He read? Oh my God, guys that read were like unicorns. They only existed in fairy tales.” 

At 21, Calla hasn’t done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.

But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought she'd left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.

Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn’t give them her mom.

{Book Tour and Giveaway} Adrian Lessons by L. A. Rose

Well hell, today I'm here with yet again another book tour, review AND giveaway, yay! I'm so excited to present you the wonderfully funny and steamy NA novel, Adrian Lessons by L. A. Rose.

If there’s one thing Cleo Reynolds knows, it’s that she’s not into Adrian King.

The son of a model with the looks to prove it, the experienced author of her school newspaper’s sex advice column, the cocky playboy with a hint of darkness. That Adrian King.

Nope. Nuh-uh. No way. 

The problem is, he’s very into her.

After accidentally flashing him, and slightly-less-accidentally-but-still-totally-unintentionally making out with him in front of the whole class, she expects to be called crazy. Instead, he asks her out. 

Cleo’s determined not to end up as another notch on his bedpost. Except she hasn’t done…you know…it in a while. (Read: ever.) And as a girl who pays her tuition by writing all the sex scenes in her roommate’s bestselling romance series, the lack of inspiration has served up a fat slice of writer’s block.

Until her roommate proposes that Cleo and Adrian act out all the steamy scenes in her book.
It’s just research. No feelings involved.

Nope. Nuh-uh.
No way.

{Book Tour + Giveaway} Iris St. Clair - Louder Than Words

Hey lovely, lovely people. Today the Louder Than Words book tour stops by at Reading Is Dreaming with Open Eyes. I hope you'll enjoy reading my review and getting to know more about this book and the author. Click here if you'd like to follow the tour. 

Disappointment has been on speed dial in Ellen Grayson's life lately. Her dad died, her mom numbs the grief with drugs and alcohol, and her so-called friends have slowly abandoned her. 

Trusting a popular teacher with her troubles should have been safe and should NOT have led to an unwelcome seduction attempt that made her desperate to escape the final moments of Junior year. Lesson learned. Best to keep all the sordid details to herself and trust no one.

Enter Rex Jacobi, a cocky boy, recently transplanted from New York City and fellow summer camp employee. Though his quick wit and confidence draws her in, she can't let him get too close. And summer is just long enough and hot enough to keep a boy like that at arm's length.

But by the time Rex's charm wears down her resistance, it's too late. He's put Ellen on the "just friends" shelf and has shifted his romantic attentions to the impossibly annoying and perky anti-Ellen. Even worse, the teacher who tried to get her to sleep with him is still at it, preying on other girls while Ellen struggles to come to terms with what happened.

With her ability to trust as shaky as a chastity vow on prom night, Ellen must decide if she has enough remaining courage to speak up about the well-liked teacher and risk retribution, tell Rex how she really feels about him and risk heartbreak, or hold all her secrets inside. After all, it's the only safe place she knows when the only thing louder than words is the fear of being rejected.

15 Most Beautiful Bookstores around the World

Hello everyone! Today I'm here with an unusual post about some beautiful bookstores around the world. Bookstores are being closed right and left because people doesn't feel the need to leave their houses to buy new books. With just one simple click any books can be delivered to their doors and I haven't even said a thing about how much easier reading an ebook is. I have to admit that I mostly buy my books on the internet too, simply because it's cheaper and faster that way but when I get into a bookstore you can't drag me out of there in two hours time.

 I think all bookstores are wonderful places but boy, what I would do to visit one from my list below. 

Hope you'll enjoy my post. :)

Top Ten Underrated Books

Hey sweeties, it's time for Top Ten Tuesday again. TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish this week's topic is top ten underrated book or authors in x genre. I'm a bit ashamed to admit that I couldn't make a list out of one genre so I'll simply list some underrated books that I love. 

I think underrated means different numbers to everyone, on my list there's a book that has less than 150 ratings but there are two that have more than 2300 ratings. I still think these are pretty underrated. Anyways, I'm going to add when was the book published and approx how many people rated it on Goodreads until this point. 

Check out my wonderful list of underrated books, and don't forget: for Goodreads page you'll just have to click on the covers.

(Don't) Judge A Book By It's Cover #1: NA Contemporary Romance

I promised in my 100th post that I'm going to make posts about cover changes. The hard things wasn't the idea, it was thinking of a title for this new feature. Finally I decided next to (Don't) Judge A Book By It's Cover. Every month I'm going to post one, I'll feature 5 to 10 books and at least 4 cover changes to each. Every post will be about a different genre, today I'm comparing different editions of 6 books from the New Adult genre.

I'm going to rate the original covers from 0 to 3. It will get a point if my answer is yes to any of these three questions:

Does it fit the story or has any connection to it?
Does it look good?
Is it original?

K. A. Tucker - Five Ways to Fall (Ten Tiny Breaths #4)

“If you have to fight over a guy, he’s not worth it. Go for the one who’s waiting for you.” 

Purple-haired, sharp-tongued Reese MacKay knows all about making the wrong choice; she’s made plenty of them in her twenty-odd-years. So when her impulsive, short-lived marriage ends in heartbreak, she decides it’s time for a change. She moves to Miami with the intention of hitting reset on her irresponsible life, and she does quite well…aside from an epically humiliating one-night stand in Cancun with a hot blond bouncer named Ben. Thank God she can get on a plane and leave that mistake behind her.

Football scholarship and frat parties with hot chicks? Part of charmer Ben Morris’s plan. Blown knee that kills any hope of a professional football career? So not part of the plan. Luckily Ben has brains to go with his knockout looks and magnetism. After three long years of balancing law school with his job as a bouncer at Penny’s Palace, he’s ready to lead a more mature life—until his first day of work, when he finds himself in the office of that crazy, hot chick he met in Cancun. The one he hasn’t stopped thinking about.

If Ben truly were a smart guy, he’d stay clear of Reese. She’s the boss’s stepdaughter and it’s been made very clear that office romances are grounds for dismissal. Plus, rumor has it she’s trouble. The only problem is, he likes trouble, especially when it’s so good-looking…

Kate Karyus Quinn - (Don't You) Forget About Me

“Everyone falls eventually,” Piper told me. “You think it’ll hurt. But it’s falling with no bottom. You just keep going and going forever, just falling deeper and deeper. And once you stop being scared, it’s kind of fun.” 

Welcome to Gardnerville.

A place where no one gets sick. And no one ever dies.

There’s a price to pay for paradise. Every fourth year, the strange power that fuels the town exacts its payment by infecting teens with deadly urges. In a normal year in Gardnerville, teens might stop talking to their best friends. In a fourth year, they’d kill them.

Four years ago, Skylar’s sister, Piper, was locked away after leading sixteen of her classmates to a watery grave. Since then, Skylar has lived in a numb haze, struggling to forget her past and dull the pain of losing her sister. But the secrets and memories Piper left behind keep taunting Skylar—whispering that the only way to get her sister back is to stop Gardnerville’s murderous cycle once and for all.

Summer Recap

Hello sweeties. It's September 1st and school (meh) is officially started. School ends my lazy don't-have-to-do-anything days and takes away from both my reading and blogging time. *sad sigh* Anyhow I thought I'll do a recap of this summer, so here it is. 

In the beginning of summer I joined to the 2014 Summer Reading Challenge hosted by Bookwyrming Thoughts. When I joined in a wrote a post about it and I added a TBR list with the promise of crossing at least a few items of off it. Well, I did succeed in reading as many books as I planned to but I was only able to cross off a few books from my list. Anyhow I did succeed in reading 32 books, actually I read 37 books this summer so I think I can say that I did well.

I made some promises in my 100th post and I'm going to keep them, starting with making posts out of the books that I reward with an "award" for some reason. My plan is to do monthly, seasonal and yearly awards, the categories of course won't be the same, logically the yearly award will have the most categories. I've already posted The 2014 Summer Awards yesterday so you can go check it out here

I think I've dragged out this far too long so let's see the list of the books I've read this summer.
