10 New Books Release I look forward to.

This are books I am so excited to read. I have pre order each of them and I cant wait to have them in my hands. Here are 10 of them. 🙂

1.) Defy me- April 2nd, 2019

I’m looking forward to this one book the most because Shatter Me is my favorite series ever. I’m.completely hooked on it. Last book ended in a huge Cliff hanger and I need to know what happened . Been waiting for this book for a year now.

The gripping fifth installment in the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestselling Shatter Me series. Will Juliette’s broken heart make her vulnerable to the strengthening darkness within her?

Juliette’s short tenure as the supreme commander of North America has been an utter disaster. When the children of the other world leaders show up on her doorstep, she wants nothing more than to turn to Warner for support and guidance. But he shatters her heart when he reveals that he’s been keeping secrets about her family and her identity from her—secrets that change everything.

Juliette is devastated, and the darkness that’s always dwelled within her threatens to consume her. An explosive encounter with unexpected visitors might be enough to push her over the edge.

2. The Mister- April 16th, 2019 –

I have never read anything from this author but I have heard great things about him by some of the members on my book group, so I figure I would give it a try and this one caught my eyes. Not only because of its beautiful cover but that description is amazing.

London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.

But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past.  Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? Can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own?

From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, The Mister is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.Age Range:Adult

3.) Internment – March 19th,2019

This book seems to be filled with drama and thrilling moments. With the wary the world is going today it could happen. I hope it delivers in my expectations. This books that are controversial are beautiful written and very emotional. I like a book that grabs my heart and hold on tight until I’m done.

Set in a horrifying near-future United States, seventeen-year-old Layla Amin and her parents are forced into an internment camp for Muslim American citizens.
With the help of newly made friends also trapped within the internment camp, her boyfriend on the outside, and an unexpected alliance, Layla begins a journey to fight for freedom, leading a revolution against the internment camp’s Director and his guards.
Heart-racing and emotional, Internment challenges readers to fight complicit silence that exists in our society today.

4. No Happy Endings- March 26th, 2019

I need it a change of pace. I figure reading this book will give me that. I’m not to big on reading memoir, but I figure I try this one. After all, I’m well aware that life is not always happy but we must do anything to keep going no matter what.

The author of It’s Okay to Laugh and host of the popular podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking—interviews that are “a gift to be able to listen [to]” (New York Times)—returns with more hilarious meditations on her messy, wonderful, bittersweet, and unconventional life.

Life has a million different ways to kick you right in the chops. We lose love, lose jobs, lose our sense of self. For Nora McInerny, it was losing her husband, her father, and her unborn second child in one catastrophic year.

But in the wake of loss, we get to assemble something new from whatever is left behind. Some circles call finding happiness after loss “Chapter 2”—the continuation of something else. Today, Nora is remarried and mothers four children aged 16 months to 16 years. While her new circumstances bring her extraordinary joy, they are also tinged with sadness over the loved ones she’s lost.

Life has made Nora a reluctant expert in hard conversations. On her wildly popular podcast, she talks about painful experiences we inevitably face, and exposes the absurdity of the question “how are you?” that people often ask when we’re coping with the aftermath of emotional catastrophe. She knows intimately that when your life falls apart, there’s a mad rush to be okay—to find a silver lining, to get to the happy ending. In this, her second memoir, Nora offers a tragicomic exploration of the tension between finding happiness and holding space for the unhappy experiences that have shaped us.

No Happy Endings is a book for people living life after life has fallen apart. It’s a book for people who know that they’re moving forward, not moving on. It’s a book for people who know life isn’t always happy, but it isn’t the end: there will be unimaginable joy and incomprehensible tragedy. As Nora reminds us, there will be no happy endings—but there will be new beginnings.

5.) The F*ck it Diet- March 26th, 2019

I absolutely love this type of books. I have F*ck feelings and its amazing. I’m hoping this one is just as good and can give me a new perspective on my weight and how eat healthy.

The F*ck It Diet is not only hilarious, it is scientifically and medically sound. A must read for any chronic dieter.” –Christiane Northrup, MD, New York Times bestselling author of  Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

From comedian and ex-diet junkie Caroline Dooner, an inspirational guide that will help you stop dieting, reboot your relationship with food, and regain your personal power

DIETING DOESN’T WORK

Not long term. In fact, our bodies are hardwired against it. But each time our diets fail, instead of considering that maybe our ridiculously low-carb diet is the problem, we wonder what’s wrong with us. Why can’t we stick to our simple plan of grapefruit and tuna fish??? Why are we so hungry? What is wrong with us??? We berate ourselves for being lazy and weak, double down on our belief that losing weight is the key to our everlasting happiness, and resolve to do better tomorrow. But it’s time we called a spade a spade: Constantly trying to eat the smallest amount possible is a miserable way to live, and it isn’t even working. So fuck eating like that. 

In The F*ck It Diet, Caroline Dooner tackles the inherent flaws of dieting and diet culture, and offers readers a counterintuitively simple path to healing their physical, emotional, and mental relationship with food. What’s the secret anti-diet? Eat. Whatever you want. Honor your appetite and listen toyour hunger. Trust that your body knows what it is doing. Oh, and don’t forget to rest, breathe, and be kind to yourself while you’re at it.  Once you get yourself out of survival mode, it will become easier and easier to eat what your body really needs—a healthier relationship with food ultimately leads to a healthier you.

An ex-yo-yo dieter herself, Dooner knows how terrifying it can be to break free of the vicious cycle, but with her signature sharp humor and compassion, she shows readers that a sustainable, easy relationship with food is possible.

Irreverent and empowering, The F*ck It Diet is call to arms for anyone who feels guilt or pain over food, weight, or their body. It’s time to give up the shame and start thriving. Welcome to the F*ck It Diet. Let’s Eat.

6.) Lost Roses: A Novel- April 9th, 2019

Historical Fictions are my absolute favorite genre. Is something about the love stories or stories that develop during a horrible time that still gives me hope that love can really conquer all. That we can survive no matter what situations we are on.

It is 1914, and the world has been on the brink of war so often,many New Yorkers treat the subject with only passing interest. Eliza Ferriday is thrilled to be traveling to St. Petersburg with Sofya Streshnayva, a cousin of the Romanovs. The two met years ago one summer in Paris and became close confidantes. Now Eliza embarks on the trip of a lifetime, home with Sofya to see the splendors of Russia: the church with the interior covered in jeweled mosaics, the Rembrandts at the tsar’s Winter Palace, the famous ballet.

But when Austria declares war on Serbia and Russia’s imperial dynasty begins to fall, Eliza escapes back to America, while Sofya and her family flee to their country estate. In need of domestic help, they hire the local fortune-teller’s daughter, Varinka, unknowingly bringing intense danger into their household.

On the other side of the Atlantic, Eliza is doing her part to help the White Russian families find safety as they escape the revolution. But when Sofya’s letters suddenly stop coming, she fears the worst for her best friend. 

From the turbulent streets of St. Petersburg and aristocratic countryside estates to the avenues of Paris where a society of fallen Russian émigrés live to the mansions of Long Island, the lives of Eliza, Sofya, and Varinka will intersect in profound ways. In her newest powerful tale told through female-driven perspectives, Martha Hall Kelly celebrates the unbreakable bonds of women’s friendship, especially during the darkest days of history.

7. IMomSoHard- April 2nd, 2019

Omg! I can wait to get my hands on this baby. This might become one of my favorite books ever. We mothers have a really though times at time and need that escape. I’m looking forward to my glass of wine and relaxation with this book. I hope is as good as it looks and sounds.

Has it been months since you’ve read a book with actual adult words that had nothing to do with farm animals or superheroes or going potty? Well then, it’s time to take a break. Pour yourself some wine. Put on your comfy pants. All good? Ok, welcome to the party.

Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley, the creators of #IMOMSOHARD, know that you probably didn’t get to shower today and that the last thing you need is more advice on how to be a better parent. Instead, they invite you to join their laugh-out-loud, best friend banter on the eighty bajillion ways moms give their all every day—including:

I KEEP IT TOGETHER SO HARD

I BODY AFTER BABY SO HARD

I HIT THE TOWN (AND AM IN BED BY 9:30 P.M.) SO HARD

I BUST MY ASS SO HARD

I KEEP FOOLS ALIVE SO HARD

Come for the laughs, stay for the kinship with two friends who are just getting it right, getting it wrong, and leaning on each other for a laugh at the end of the day. They don’t care if your house is a mess and they won’t judge you if you pee a little when you sneeze.So kick back, relax, and enjoy. You deserve it.

8.) Someone Knows- April 9th, 2019

We cant miss Lisa Scottoline in this list. After all she is my favorite author ever. Any book she publish I blindly pick it up. I have never been disappointed by her books. She is just that amazing! And she have a heart of gold as well.

Allie Garvey is heading home to the funeral of a childhood friend. Allie is not only grief-stricken, she’s full of dread. Because going home means seeing the other two people with whom she shares an unbearable secret.

Twenty years earlier, a horrific incident shattered the lives of five teenagers, including Allie. Drinking and partying in the woods, they played a dangerous prank that went tragically wrong, turning deadly. The teenagers kept what happened a secret, believing that getting caught would be the worst thing that could happen. But time has taught Allie otherwise. Not getting caught was far worse.

Allie has been haunted for two decades by what she and the others did, and by the fact that she never told a soul. The dark secret has eaten away at her, distancing her from everyone she loves, including her husband. Because she wasn’t punished by the law, Allie has punished herself, and it’s a life sentence.

Now, Allie stands on the precipice of losing everything. She’s ready for a reckoning, determined to learn how the prank went so horribly wrong. She digs to unearth the truth, but reaches a shocking conclusion that she never saw coming–and neither will the reader.

A deeply emotional examination of family, marriage, and the true nature of justice, Someone Knows is Lisa Scottoline’s most powerful novel to date. Startling, page-turning, and with an ending that’s impossible to forget, this is a tour de force by a beloved author at the top of her game.

9.) The Institute- September 10th, 2019

And of course we couldn’t skip the master of Horror Mr. Stephen King himself. Another one of my favorite authors. I love Horror so much and Stephen king always delivers. And no matter how much of his books I read he never cease to amaze me. I would love to meet him one day and just ask him how he comes up with all this crazy ideas.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.

10.) Stop doing that Sh*t- End Sabotage and demand your life back- May 7th, 2019

Another of those self help books I love. The way they say somethings with out treating the reader like a weak, fragile individual is what calls my attention. It might sound crazy to others but to me it makes perfect sense. I like straight forward people and books

Why do you act the way you do? Do you ever feel like you get stuck in destructive cycles that hold you back from living the life you really want? In a dynamic, compelling and aha-filled journey, Stop Doing That Sh*t helps you connect the dots of your “stuff” all the way from your past to the present. You’ll make sense of yourself as you uncover how to interrupt those destructive cycles of yours and make the kind of profound shift needed to get your life on track.

If you can’t save money, if you keep ending up in the same types of toxic relationships, if you feel unloved, don’t fit in, not enough or any one of the myriad of ways that a human being trashes an otherwise good life, this is the book for you.

Written in the same irreverent, in-your-face style that resonated with the hundreds of thousand of fans who read Unfu*k Yourself,Stop Doing that Sh*t skillfully reveals our deepest subconscious machinery, with a real-world approach to powerfully translate our most negative thoughts and behaviors into a vitalizing, sabotage-free future. “Stop indulging yourself with fantasies and dramas and unresolved issues.  Wake the hell up!” Bishop writes. 

Look, you might have fu*ked up in the past, so what? Stop Doing That Sh*t reveals how you can break free of those deep-seated patterns to live the life you always knew you wanted but could never quite seem to have. As Bishop says, “The future has arrived. Now what the hell are you going to do about it?”

This is my list of my most anticipated book of the year 2019. What’s yours? can you give me the top 2 books of your list in the comment?

The Haunting of Hill House

There have been a few other movies made from the history of this house. It’s been a very long time since I enjoyed a scary show like this. It makes you think and you don’t want to stop watching it. It’s amazing, I highly recommend it.

This modern reimagining of the Shirley Jackson novel follows siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country… Now, adults, they are forced back together in the face of tragedy and must finally confront the ghosts of their past. Some of those ghosts still lurk in their minds, while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House. The ensemble cast includes Oscar winner Timothy Hutton, Carla Gugino, and Henry Thomas. Mike Flanagan, a veteran of the horror genre, created the series.

The Interview!

1.) When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I wanted to be a writer in one form or another when I was in school and learned about poetry. As I got older, I lost interest in poetry off and on but I could tell a mean story. One of the adults in my life back then said if I could stay on topic, I could be one hell of an author… so, I tried it out. I’m not sure what happened to that one but I never finished it. A few years later, I started a new one from a recurring dream I had. It became my first finished story. It was fun and something to do while I couldn’t sleep. I started posting it on Facebook, by chapters, and folks loved it! People enjoying something I do is a huge thing for me so I kept doing it.

2.) How long does it take you to write a book?

The length of time it takes to finish a book varies. It has taken a month and a half to three years. It’s my writing process. I handwrite everything, then type it up. While typing, I can edit, add, revamp, or completely change things. I have a story, my longest one ever, but it’s only half typed and a bit overwhelming to do at this point, which is why I have years to finish it. A book isn’t done until I have it all typed up and hit save for the last time.

3.) What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

This is probably the hardest thing to pinpoint. I have many factors in my life that don’t add up to a nice laid out schedule. Whenever I get the chance to work on a story, I dive right in.

4.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

My writing quirks aren’t exactly interesting. They do more to annoy me than anything else. My stories have to be written by one pen, or at least the same kind of pen. The lines of the paper I use have to be the same color and size throughout a story. If I’m using Bic pens, I have to have 2 pen grips of the same color.

5.)At what age you write your very first book?

At age of 25, and with a 9-month-old, I finished Secret Arrangement, however that was not my first published book.

6.)What book did you published first?

My first published book was Shivers of Desire at age 29. It was in e-book for a while before I could find a way to get it to be in paperback. The cover gave me a bit of trouble but I got it sorted.

7.) What does your family think about your writing?

They are all very supportive. My aunt has read everything I posted on Facebook and owns at least one book.

8.) How many books have you written? which one is your favorite?

I am currently writing book number 7, Protect me, which is Catch me part 2. one of my favorites has to be Home is Where the Journey Begins. That story has an incredible adventure with life, loss, and love. It helps that Daniel is so delectable, I guess.

9.)Do you hear from your readers much? what kind of things do they say?

When I do hear from them, it’s all supportive and excitement. I have one who’s been waiting for Shivers of Desire part 2 for quite some time but she’s also working on collecting all my other books as well. My readers are all wonderful and cheer me on when things get rough.

10.) what book do you recommend new readers to start with?

That’s hard to say. I like them all and they have different worlds with different issues. I like Home is Where the Journey Begins for new readers.

11.) What other works are in process? what should we keep an eye for?

Protect Me, Catch Me part 2, is coming very soon along with parts 3&4. Clear of Mind is Pure of Heart part 3 and might be out by the end of the year. I also have many others that I might start working on.

Some would say Becky Gerard is a devoted mother and would do anything for her only child. Others, including her husband Carl, claim she’s obsessed and can’t stop the vicious circle of finding a cure at her daughter’s expense.

Fifteen-year-old Meghan has been in and out of hospitals with a plague of unexplained illnesses. But when the ailments take a sharp turn, clashing medical opinions begin to raise questions about the puzzling nature of Meghan’s illness. Doctors suspect Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare behavioral disorder where the primary caretaker seeks medical help for made-up symptoms of a child. Is this what’s going on? Or is there something even more sinister at hand?

As the Gerards grow more and more suspicious of each other and their medical team, Becky must race against time to prove her daughter has a deadly disease. But first, she must confront her darkest fears and family secrets that threaten to not only upend her once-ordered life…but to destroy it.

I received an ARC of this amazing book from ST. Martin’s Press. There was no payment involved just a book I’m exchange for my honest review.

The plot

15 yearly old Meghan was always sick. And she had been sick for years. How ever doctors could never figure out what’s wrong with her. Never giving her a diagnosis. Her mom was sure there was something wrong with her daughter and fought with doctors. Finally new hope, one doctor thought he might have found the reason Meghan was sick, his colleague believed there was more to the story and we’re set to prove all the sickness was on Meghan’s head.

What would you do to save some one you love? Would you do anything for them? Even if it risk your own freedom? Your own life?

This book was simply amazing. The best I have read this year. Is filled with twist, and a big one I wasn’t expecting. I would recommend anyone to read this book.

5 out of 5 stars
