sBOOKtacular Halloween with Darke Conteur and The Prophecies of Mortals

On this spooky occasion, I'm lucky enough to spotlight a book that was released TODAY by the fabulous #goatposse member: Darke Conteur! THE PROPHECIES OF MORTALS is the fifth book in her paranormal series!! What a great read for Halloween!!!

Death has touched Jezryall and her team, but their mourning is cut short as the minions of hell step up their plans of kick-starting the apocalypse.
The arrival of old friends bring some much needed laughter and good memories, as well as a possible key to stopping the coming maelstrom. Yes even as Daniel’s powers are re-awakened, Jezryall’s concerns about the Goddess’s motives, questions her loyalty to the deity, and as internal conflict rise with each of her staff, the extra tension strains her own self-control.
As the team is drawn in several directions, they must push aside their own doubts and personal demons, or risk the fulfillment of a prophecy that would see the end of their world.

sBOOKtacular day 28 with Philip Siegel and THE BREAKUP ARTIST

OBT said she didn't want some stupid elephant on her head this morning. She wanted to be cooler... so today she's a skateboarder:

She wanted to be a dancer like Becca from The Breakup Artist, but I have boys... so my props aren't very girl friendly :) Speaking of ... you could win a SIGNED copy of The Breakup Artist during this month's October sBOOKtacular!

Some sixteen-year-olds babysit for extra cash.

Some work at the mall.

Becca Williamson breaks up couples.

Becca knows from experience the damage that love can do. After all, it was so-called love that turned Huxley from her childhood best friend into a social-world dictator, and love that left Becca's older sister devastated at the altar. Instead of sitting on the sidelines, Becca strikes back—for just one hundred dollars via PayPal, she will trick and manipulate any couple's relationship into smithereens. And with relationship zombies overrunning her school and treating single girls as if they're second-class citizens, business is unfortunately booming. Even Becca's best friend, Val, has resorted to outright lies to snag a boyfriend.

One night, Becca receives a mysterious offer to break up the most popular couple in school: Huxley and raw football team's star player, Steve. To succeed, she'll have to plan her most elaborate scheme to date—starting rumors, sabotaging cell phones, breaking into cars...not to mention sneaking back into Huxley's good graces. All while fending off the inappropriate feelings she may or may not be having for Val's new boyfriend.

No one said being the Break-Up Artist would be easy.

This one is so much fun. I've already read it more than once since its release.

sBOOKtacular October with Elizabeth Holloway and CALL ME GRIM

If you're in the Marlton, NJ area on Wednesday night, stop by Barnes & Noble and see us! There will be free treats and swag. Prizes (including gift cards) will be raffled. Attendees wearing costumes or purchasing our books will be entered more than once!

In light of the upcoming event, today is all about Elizabeth Holloway and CALL ME GRIM!

The truck should have turned Libbi Piper into a Libbi Pancake—and it would have, too, if Aaron hadn't shown up and saved her life. The problem? Aaron's the local Grim Reaper . . . and he only saved Libbi's life because he needs someone to take over his job. Now, Libbi has two days to choose between dying like she was supposed to, or living a lonely life as Death Incarnate. Talk about a rock and a hard place. And the choice goes from hard to sucktastic when her best friend shows up marked: condemned as a future murderer. Libbi could have an extra week to stop the murder and fix the mark . . . but only if she accepts Aaron's job as Reaper, trapping herself in her crappy town forever, invisible and inaudible to everyone except the newly dead. But, if she refuses? Her best friend is headed straight for Hell.

I can't even...

How did she come up with this premise?? So fun. For more about Elizabeth Holloway check out her website.

Head into the forest with one studly guy and a psycho girl in this twisted fairy tale novella with a chance of zombie.

Hans and his contentious fiancé, Liesel, are just two warm bodies who wander too far into a forest that was once the site of a zombie infestation. When they stumble upon a romantic cottage, Hans is completely unaware that the woman who will capture his heart—as well as his meaty flesh—is hidden away inside the charming home. To claim true love, Hans will have to endure captivity, unraveling mystery, and a brawl with zombies.

sBOOKtacular Day 24 with Linda Budzinski and The Funeral Singer

Costume of the day...

Michelangelo! Cowabunga, dudes!

On with the bookish fun! Spotlight today is on The Funeral Singer by the wonderful Linda Budzinski (click here to visit her website!) 

Being a funeral singer was a dead-end job until it led her to him ...

Seventeen-year-old Melanie Martin has witnessed her share of lame eulogies and uninspired epitaphs while singing part-time at her dad's funeral home. She's determined to be more than a funeral singer, more than just someone's "beloved wife" or "loving mother." 

When Mel's impromptu rendition of "Amazing Grace" at a local rock star's graveside service goes viral on YouTube, she becomes an Internet sensation, gains thousands of fans and followers, and snags a hot rock star boyfriend--Zed Logan, bass player for The Grime. 

But instant fame isn’t easy—and neither is love. Especially when Mel realizes she’s falling for another guy—one who may just want her heart more than her voice …

So unique. LOVE this premise. This one is coming up on my TBR pile, and I can't wait! You can purchase The Funeral Singer by clicking here OR you can enter for a chance to win below!!

sBOOKtacular Day 23 with Anne Blankman and Prisoner of Night and Fog!

OBT stole my 3 year-old's Halloween costume this morning. I found her breathing heavy and wielding a red lightsaber... she's odd.


Very excited about today's spotlight! You can enter to win a SIGNED hardback of Anne Blankman's Prisoner of Night and Fog! This was one of my standout books of the 2014 class. Maybe it's my obsession with WWII, but this book resonated with me.

In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her "uncle" Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf's, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.

Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler. And Gretchen follows his every command.

Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can't stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can't help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she's been taught to believe about Jews.

As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed?

From debut author Anne Blankman comes this harrowing and evocative story about an ordinary girl faced with the extraordinary decision to give up everything she's ever believed . . . and to trust her own heart instead.

It's incredible. For my review, click here.

And FYI, the cover for the sequel, Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke, is equally as stunning. Can't wait for April.

sBOOKtacular day 22 with Vicki L. Weavil and CROWN OF ICE!

OBT and I just had a little snowball fight in honor of today's spotlight...

CROWN OF ICE by Vicki L. Weavil! 

Thyra Winther's seventeen, the Snow Queen, and immortal, but if she can't reassemble a shattered enchanted mirror by her eighteenth birthday she's doomed to spend eternity as a wraith. Armed with magic granted by a ruthless wizard, Thyra schemes to survive with her mind and body intact. Unencumbered by kindness, she kidnaps local boy Kai Thorsen, whose mathematical skills rival her own. Two logical minds, Thyra calculates, are better than one. With time rapidly melting away she needs all the help she can steal. A cruel lie ensnares Kai in her plan, but three missing mirror shards and Kai's childhood friend, Gerda, present more formidable obstacles. Thyra's willing to do anything – venture into uncharted lands, outwit sorcerers, or battle enchanted beasts -- to reconstruct the mirror, yet her most dangerous adversary lies within her breast. Touched by the warmth of a wolf pup's devotion and the fire of a young man's desire, the thawing of Thyra's frozen heart could be her ultimate undoing. 

CROWN OF ICE is a YA Fantasy that reinvents Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen" from the perspective of a young woman who discovers that the greatest threat to her survival may be her own humanity.

You can find CROWN OF ICE on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. For more about Vicki L. Weavil, click here!

I've been waiting to read this one- it's next on my TBR, and I'm stoked!! For a chance to win CROWN OF ICE or over 30 other prizes, enter below!

sBOOKtacular day 20 with C.J. Burright and Wonderfully Wicked!

It's Monday. Ugh.

Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming...

In light of that advice, costume of the day is:


And cheer up. My sBOOKtacular October giveaway continues with an awesome little gem that's perfect for the season! 

A dreamcaster with the ability to channel creatures from her nightmares, headstrong and cynical Kalila Montgomery longs for a peaceful, picket-fence life… until the man literally of her dreams kidnaps her. 

Survival quickly becomes her number one goal, yet a growing attraction to the man in her nightmares is impossible to ignore. While she fears he will kill her, other, more terrifying enemies surround her, and Kalila succumbs to his scheme to escape. She may be his one hope for freedom…

A deadly combination of power, cunning, and cold-hearted charm, Lydon v'al Endrian fears nothing. Feels nothing. Chained to a brotherhood of men with the supernatural ability to invade dreams, he hunts dreamcasters to be harvested for their dreams and killed. His target: Kalila Montgomery. But Kalila awakens an undeniable dark desire and a longing for a freedom long-lost. 

To gain everything he craves, Lydon must seduce Kalila before his plot is discovered… a hopeless challenge which, if failed, will earn him a death-sentence. Caught up in a dangerous world of secrets and obsession, doubt and betrayal, Kalila and Lydon face the nightmare of their lives, where love will either deliver them—or destroy them both.
