Cover Freebie

I’m going with:

Favorite Covers for Upcoming Releases

Here are some covers I love. Not all of these are books I plan to read, but these are cool.

1.

There’s something about the cat that makes me smile.

2.

I like the colors used and the simplicity.

3.

I’m not big on illustrated covers in romance, but this is one that I can get behind because it fits the story so well.

4.

It’s just so freaking cute and YA perfection!

5.

I love the creepy feel of this covers for McManus’ upcoming thriller.

6.

I just want to be on that beach enjoying that sunset.

7.

There’s something about this cover that’s both relaxing to the eye and slightly thrilling to the mind.

8.

I love the contrast of the pretty, white dress and the dark background. I also like the fact that it’s the woman from behind. It just works for me. Makes me want to read it.

9.

The simplicity of this cover and the old school feel fits the emotions I know DeBartolo can invoke. It makes me curious and it’s cute.

10.

ADORABLE. That’s it.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Wish Authors Would Write

Today’s topic is:

Questions I Would Ask My Favorite Authors

I wrote this post and then deleted it. I HATED my questions. Some of them were just asking them if they would write certain books, so I decided to change this prompt around. My topic is:

Ten Books I Wish Authors Would Write

1. Thunder Road #4 – Addison’s book
Author: Katie McGarry

I know Katie McGarry has said we won’t get Addison’s book, but I wish we would.

2. WAGS #3 or Top Secret #2
Authors: Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy

Honestly, I would take anything these two authors would write together, but I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE another book set in the WAGS world.

3. All Closed Off (Rusk University, #4) – Stella’s book
Author: Cora Carmack

I know this book has been in the works for years and that Cora Carmack has had some health issues to deal with, but I would still love this one sooner than later. No pressure on her, though.

4. More Than #6 – Heidi’s book
Author: Jay McLean

Jay McLean has said before that Heidi isn’t getting a book, but I would like one for her.

5. Broken & Screwed #3 – Chord’s book
Author: Tijan

It probably wouldn’t actually be a Broken & Screwed book, but I would LOVE for Chord to get his own book.

Can we have another co-written book from you two soon?

6. When It’s Real #2 – Preston’s book
Authors: Erin Watt

I loved When It’s Real and would really like to know what happened to Preston.

7. Top Secret #2 – Annika’s book
Authors: Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy

I wouldn’t mind finding out more about Keaton’s ex Annika.

8. Cold Day in the Sun #2
Author: Sara Biren

I would love her to turn this book into a YA hockey romance series.

9. Gridiron #5
Author: Jen Frederick

I’ve missed Jen Frederick’s new adult sports romances. I was really hoping she would continue this college football series because it’s so fun and the character possibilities are endless.

10. Varsity, #4 – Hayden’s book
Author: Ginger Scott

I think this series is only supposed to be three books and that we kind of got an idea how things turned out for Hayden, but I would love to see things from his perspective, find out more about their family drama, and for him to get his own love story.

Do you want any of these books?

Today’s topic is:

Books that Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies

1. Fallen Crest High Series
Author: Tijan

I think this series would be such a fun TV show with all the drama.

2. Addicted to You
Authors: Krista & Becca Ritchie

I see a fake docuseries type TV show.

3. How to Walk Away
Author: Katherine Center

This one I see as a movie.

4. You’d Be Mine
Author: Erin Hahn

I would love this one to be a movie or TV show. I would take either.

5. The Fill-In Boyfriend
Author: Kasie West

This would make a cute TV movie.

6. Nine Minutes
Author: Beth Flynn

I’ve been saying for YEARS that this would make a great TV series. It has total Sons of Anarchy vibes.

7. I Can Be a Better You
Author: Tarryn Fisher

This would make a great mini series or movie.

8. When It’s Real
Authors: Erin Watt

This would make such a cute rom-com!

9. Just One of the Groomsmen
Author: Cindi Madsen

Speaking of great ideas for rom-coms…

10. Stroked
Author: Meghan Quinn

This one would be hilarious because it’s got an evil reality TV star in that would transfer well to the screen.

Today’s topic is:

FREEBIE

A while back I did a TTT post on books that helped pave the way from YA to NA. I decided that for my freebie topic today, I’m going to give you more examples with:

Ten Books to Help You Transition from YA to NA (Part 2)

1. If you liked Pushing the Limits, try This is Falling.

What they have in common: Big on emotions and baseball. They also are first books in a great series.

2. If you liked Autoboyography, try Goodbye Paradise.

What they have in common: LBGTQ+ romances with a religious aspect.

3. If you liked What Happened to Goodbye, try The Simple Wild.

 ⇒

What they have in common: emotional and physical journeys to learn about their parents and the past. Oh, and cute romances.

4. If you liked P.S. I Like You, try Let’s Get Textual.

What they have in common: both books fall in the cute romance category and anonymous communication before they figure out who the messages are coming from.

5. If you liked Alex, Approximately, try Where I Belong.

What they have in common: summer vibes, moving, and fun romances.

6. If you liked The Heartbreakers, try Cake.

What they have in common: Sweet rock star romances with some heavy emotions and topics.

7. If you liked Fallen Crest High, try Addicted to You.

What they have in common: darker, edgier, and angsty. Both also have a group of friends/family that you want to know all about.

8. If you liked The Field Party, try Kick Push.

What they have in common: there’s big emotions in both of these.  They have female MCs who don’t speak due to past trauma and supportive guys.

9. If you liked On the Fence, try The Friend Zone.

What they have in common: best friends to more, sports.

10. If you liked Delicate Monsters, try Marrow.

What they have in common: to put it plainly, they’re both super messed up. Dark and twisted — great for psychological thriller readers.
