Extra! Extra! The Romance Edition

Extra! Extra! is my weekend post featuring brand new additions to my TBR pile as well as a summary of what's new on the blog.

This weekend I'm linking to Stacking the Shelves @ Tynga's Reviews or to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 

GIVEAWAYS:  I have a couple of great giveaways going!

For Freebie Friday, I'm giving away:

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge -- click the book cover to enter!

On my stop on the Love Is In the Air Giveaway Hop, you can win:

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner -- click the cover to enter!


I'm very excited about all these titles that I got for review. Thanks Harper, St. Martin's, Little, Brown and Disney-Hyperion :)

On the Fence by Kasie West (Harper, July 2014)

Complicit by Stephanie Kuehn (St Martin's, June 2014)

Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper (Little, Brown, September 2014)

Nantucket Red by Leila Howland (Disney-Hyperion, May 2014)


One of my 2014 blogging resolutions was to mix things up a bit.  Accordingly, this week I ran some different features:

Wednesday, I posted Ignite Me: The Morning After, a spoiler free account of my day and night waiting for and reading the book. 

On Trending Thursday, I talked about Entourage Romance -- books about ordinary girls falling in love with celebrities. Includes lists of Rock Star Romance and Royal Romance! Come chat with us about your favorite romance-with-a-celebrity YA, or tell us why those Cinderella stories aren't your cup of tea!

Right now I'm reading Split Second, the other half of the Pivot Point duology. I highly recommend these books. If you haven't read Pivot Point, you can read it for free through Epic Reads. Just click on the cover below. Ends tomorrow, so get reading if you're interested...

What's new with you? Tell me in comments and leave me a link so I can visit you back!


  1. I want to read On The Fence so bad! I adored The Distance Between Us - Kasie has banter DOWN and I know this'll be another romance I'm going to swoon and giggle at!

  2. I loved pivot point . I really should get her other books . I hope to like salt and storm .it is one of my most anticipated debuts .happy reading

  3. I got Nantucket Red as well this week. I have not read any Kassie West, even though I have one in my TBR pile. You got some great books.


  4. Nice haul this week. I am unfamiliar with all of them. Although I did enter your Love is in the Air giveaway since I've been wanting to read that book.

  6. Oooh, Complicit was new to me so I added it to my TBR! I just finished On the Fence and absolutely loved it! I have a feeling you will too (AWESOME sibling/family dynamic). Enjoy the rest of Split Second!

  7. I am so glad you got Salt and Storm! I checked out Cruel Beauty from the library and hope to start it soon. Happy reading!

  10. I got SALT & STORM a couple weeks ago, before it had a cover, and I have to say, that cover makes me even more excited to read it!!

    I'm trying to mix it up with new posts as well... I've been giving some new features a try, which I think is good. Who knows which will end up being long-time features, but it's good to try new things!

    My Weekly Wrap Up

  11. Such a nice assortment of books. I have read both of the books you are giving away and enjoyed them. Come see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  12. I'm so excited to check out On The Fence! I loved her The Distance Between Us. I still need to read Pivot Point, but I'll hopefully soon, since Split Second is almost out! Great giveaways too! Happy reading!

    Here's my Sunday Post & STS (:

  13. Great haul! I am a little jealous of your copy of Salt & Storm, I really want to read that one. I hope you enjoy all of your books :) My STS.

  16. I didn't get Salt and Storm, which totally sounds like my kind of book. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think. I'm excited for us both about On the Fence! I'm planning on reading Pivot Point and Split Second soon. The author is stopping by on Tuesday and I'm so thrilled to have her! :) I hope you have a fabulous week, Jen!!

  17. I got on the fence too! Hope you love it ☺

  18. Thanks for the heads up about Pivot Point. I clicked through and that summary on the first page made the book sound very interesting. :D
