-Cover Reveal- Out Of Play by Nyrae Dawn & Jolene Perry

Welcome to the cover reveal of Out Of Play!
I now, Present you...
The  Awesomeness... Hotness... ahhhh Just look ;)


***Rock star drummer Bishop Riley doesn't have a problem. Celebrities—especially ones suffering from anxiety—deserve to party, right? Wrong. After taking a few too many pills, Bishop wakes up in the hospital facing an intervention. If he wants to stay in the band, he’ll have to detox while under house arrest in Seldon, Alaska.
Hockey player Penny Jones can't imagine a life outside of Seldon. Though she has tons of scholarship offers, the last thing she wants is to leave. Who'll take care of her absent-minded gramps? Not her mother, who can’t even be bothered with the new tenants next door.
Penny’s too hung up on another guy to deal with Bishop’s crappy attitude, and Bishop’s too busy sneaking pills to care. Until he starts hanging out with Gramps. If Bishop wants a chance with the fiery girl next door, he’ll have to admit he has a problem and kick it. Too…

-BookPics Is Curious- New Blog Features?

New year,
New beginnings,
New... Everythings...
At least that is what I thought back on January.

Now we're going on March and so far the only new things I'm doing on the blog are participate on book cover reveals and on some blog tours, okay a LOT of blog tours, but well... My site isn't known for participating and hosting blog tour stops for books...
But I'm doing it so that's GOT to count!!

Now... This monday I was thinking.

Why not start a feature to help promote and share the love of the 2 things that have made my time as a book blogger one of the best experiences of my life?

I want to give shout-outs to book authors!
Doing some kind of author of the month thing?
I know, it's definitely NOT the most original idea but... I just though if I gave it my touch it'd be kind of nice :D And I'd get to pick and choose how I do it!
And if any author would like to be considered to be an author of the month they can always email me :D

-Review- On Dublin Street by Samantha Young

Goodreads Shortie:
Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare…

My thoughts?

Oh wow...
It's been months... literally since I read this book...
I kept struggling with this review... Came up empty when I wanted to put into words what I really thought about it...

I mean. It's not everyday that a book moves you when you haven't gone through the situation it describes and still... Argh...

To author Samantha Young, I swear I've tried.... I've sat on my bed countless nights trying to do your book justice but it just wouldn't come...

But now I'm determined to simply say...

It was amazing and loving and so very well written!

I instantly connected to the main character, Jocelyn, who wouldn't like her? She felt so real, so very centered and down to earth. I didn't have any problem believing this could be a friend of mine.

A lot of books have that problem, they write contemporary but …
