Waiting on Wednesday: Storm (Swipe #3) by Evan Angler

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. This week I’ve chosen the 3rd book in a series.  The publishing date is this coming May, so not really that long of a wait compared to some!  I was able to read the first […]

Sneak (Swipe #2) by Evan Angler

1000 Follower Giveaway!

I reached 1000 followers back in December, but I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to give as a prize, so I’ve been thinking about that.  And finally, I decided, I’m going to give away one of the books that I’ve been looking forward to most for the year 2013.  I’m only going to do […]
