Time For The Next Step Of My Life!

happy reactions excited yay minions

You guys, tomorrow is the day -- it's the day that I finally move in to college and start the next chapter of my life at my dream school!

I'll still be around to blog, of course -- but my reading may slow down a little bit. Amber and Emily are both staying home for school so they'll have more time to read and review, so while I may be the occasional pop-in, they'll be here full-time.

But this is it. Tomorrow starts the beginning of what I've been waiting for for the longest time, and I couldn't be more excited about it. I'm excited for all of the new classes, the new friends and teachers, the new experiences, and (most importantly) the new bookstores!

So with that said, I just wanted to pop onto the blog today to share my excitement. I can't wait to see where both I and The Book Bratz are headed!!

happy excited yay minions bob

From the outside, Hilary Taylor has it all—beauty, money, a caring family, good friends—but inside she’s struggling, full of fears. Events from the past forever changed her, and though years of therapy have helped, she still has a long way to go…. No matter how much progress she’s made, Hil isn’t sure she’ll ever be able to trust men again. Especially one who sees her as nothing more than a pretty face. But Hil knows it’s time to face her fears, and the best way to do that is to start small.
To Guilherme Fernandes life is about three things: polo, parties and pretty girls—only one of which he takes seriously. Gui is too focused on his polo career to waste time on relationships, however he can’t help but be intrigued by the beautiful yet troubled Hil. So when she decides she’d like to learn more about horses, Gui is happy to find himself in the right place at the right time. But what was supposed to be a one time thing, soon turns into a weekly date.

Despite knowing better, Hil can’t help it as Gui slowly breaks through the walls she’s built.

Author: Jessica Calla
Genre: New Adult
Release date: November 15, 2016
PublisherBookFish Books

Cover Artist: Anita Carroll at Race-Point


Blurb:
After tragedy strikes New Jersey University's Sheridan Hall, freshman quarterback Ben Riley’s stable, normal life is turned upside down. Sidelined from playing the game he loves and on the verge of losing his scholarship, Ben wants nothing more than to escape the chaos of college and return home to rural Pennsylvania and his family.



Yet, there’s something that keeps him from running. Or someone. A cute blonde he had a chance with but blew off for all the wrong reasons.



Megan Smith has secrets. Secrets that have burned her in the past. Secrets she’s unwilling to share with anyone at Sheridan Hall—especially Ben, her sexy, rough-around-the-edges floormate who broke her heart in a matter of days after moving into Sheridan. Meg decided early on that it’s easier to live life on her own than to share her secrets and let people in.


Meg runs, and Ben follows. But sooner or later, the clock on their chance at love will expire. With inner demons dragging them both down, they must find a way to stop running and trust one another or risk losing their perfectly matched love forever.
