The book of the month selection for August is Terry McMillan's newest novel, I Almost Forgot About You. I'm a fan of Terry McMillan's novels, yet  realized I hadn't read her recent work. I Almost Forgot About You was also one of the books I wanted to read this summer. Terry McMillan's writing style flows with such a matter of fact, in your face narrative that you can appreciate as a reader.

As we begin to really get into summer, the anticipation of delving into new reads and uncovering gems along the way is still there. While I don't post every book I read, I like to at least post a book of the month and highlight additional books of various genres periodically. For the month of July, comes a thrilling page turner from bestselling suspense author James Patterson w/ David Ellis. The July 2016 book of the month selection is The Murder House.

I wanted my next read to be a mystery thriller and The Murder House seems like it might fit the bill.

Shocking Must Reads: TWIST ME Trilogy By Anna Zaires

If you're looking for something new to read that is a dark romance laced with edgy and shocking  plot twists; The Twist Me Trilogy by Anna Zaires is a blazing series you must pick as one of your summer reads. This is the first series I've read by Anna Zaires, but it won't be the last.

Need more convincing?

My quick summary of the series:

It's graduation time...Nora is hyped. She's about to turn 18, the guy she crushed on in high school finally shows interest and come fall...she will start college. All is well..until she meets Julian. Julian is older, sinfully stunning and extremely dangerous. Julian becomes disturbingly obsessed with Nora. Leading him to do the unthinkable. The real "twist" is hella crazy. Julian's past unfolds and Nora can't help but be drawn to the man she despises...a man that kills. But, sometimes...all is not what it seems.

You will quickly get caught up in this astonishing series that is filled with shock, intrigue, suspense and a dark romance that will leave you baffled...but, perhaps not in the way you think it will.

Sylvia Day's final Crossfire novel released Tuesday of this week on April 5, 2016.

The wait is over!

It was inevitable what I was going to choose as the book of the month selection for April 2016. Several months ago, bestselling author Sylvia Day announced the highly anticipated release date for the final novel in the crazy popular Crossfire Series.

The fifth installment titled, One With You, will be the finale in one of the most intense, beloved, deep, complex and powerful stories about the relationship between deeply scarred individuals and the darkness they've had to face both together and individually.

A couple that had to find peace with not only their relationship issues, but with their own baggage and the demons they battled daily.

Through the highs and lows; the storms, the trials and tribulations of Eva Tramell and Gideon Cross' tumultuous relationship, one thing has always remained constant...
