COVER BLAST: Be With Me (Wait For You #2) by J. Lynn

Be With Me (Wait For You #2) by J. Lynn Publication: February 4, 2013 By: Harper Collins 
From Goodreads
Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.

Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about is kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.

As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their fee…

COVER REVEAL: Mine to Tarnish by Janeal Falor

(Mine .5)
by Janeal Falor


Katherine’s place is the same as any woman’s—on the shelf next to the dresses and bolts of cloth. When she’s sold to a warlock, life grows even bleaker. Her new owner is as old and rancid as he is cruel, driving her to do the unthinkable: run.</ i>

Nothing prepared her for being on her own. And she’s definitely unprepared for the warlocks hunting her down. But she must stay one step ahead because if caught, the best she can hope for is death.

Book One: (linked to Goodreads)
Janeal Falor lives in Utah where she’s finally managed to live in the same house for more than five years without moving. In her spare time she reads books like they’re nuts covered in caramel and chocolate, cooks whatever strikes her fancy, and enjoys the outdoors. Her husband and three children try to keep up with her overactive imagination. Usually they settle for having dinner on the table, even if she’s still going on about the voices in her head.

Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts

Author: Alexandra Coutts
Publication: September 17, 2013
By: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
2.5 Stars
*stares at the pretty cover*  A novel about the end of days full of surprising beginnings
The world is living in the shadow of oncoming disaster. An asteroid is set to strike the earth in just one week’s time; catastrophe is unavoidable. The question isn’t how to save the world—the question is, what to do with the time that's left? Against this stark backdrop, three island teens wrestle with intertwining stories of love, friendship and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.

Alexandra Coutts's TUMBLE & FALL is a powerful story of courage, love, and hope at the end of the world.









What I Liked: TUMBLE & FALL was in one of the many gift bags I recieved at BEA'13 and I am not ashamed to admit I spent have more than a few minutes staring at the pretty cover. The writing is beautiful and the premise intriguing - an asteroid is barrelling toward Earth threatening to end all l…

The Boy on the Bridge by Natalie Standiford

Author: Natalie Standiford
Publication: July 30, 2013
By: Scholastic 
3 Stars

A new breathtaking novel from Natalie Standiford about love and trust during the Cold War.

Laura Reid goes to Leningrad for a semester abroad as Cold War paranoia is peaking in 1982. She meets a young Russian artist named Alexei and soon, with Alexei as her guide, Laura immerses herself in the real Russia--a crazy world of wild parties, black-market books and music, and smuggled letters to dissidents. She must keep the relationship secret; associating with Americans is dangerous for Alexei, and if caught, Laura could be sent home and Alexei put under surveillance or worse. At the same time, she's been warned that Soviets often latch onto Americans in hopes of marrying them and thus escaping to the United States. But she knows Alexei loves her. Right?

As June approaches--when Laura must return to the United States--Alexei asks Laura to marry him. She's only nineteen and doesn't think she…

BOOK BLAST: Rift (Cipher #2) by Cindi Madsen

 Rift (The Cipher Series #2) by Cindi Madsen
OUT NOW! Summer Davis is a Cipher, a person chosen to help people resolve problems with their loved ones before they die. She’s just gotten her second job when weirder-than-usual things start happening. There seems to be a rift between her and the afterlife, and she’s seeing things she shouldn’t, including people who have already passed on. As she struggles to help her new assignment, Liam, make amends with his incarcerated father, she finds it hard to balance being a high school student, Cipher, and girlfriend.

Troy’s been nothing but supportive, but Summer can see her secret weighs on him, and she worries the more she tells him, the sooner he’ll decide he can’t deal with her freaky life. But when a murderer is thrown into the mix, and the girl he killed keeps asking Summer for help, she’ll risk everything to make sure the guy gets what he deserves.

When you fall in love with a rock star, anything can happen. . . .

Libby In an instant, Libby's life went from picture-perfect to a nightmare. After surviving a terrible car accident, Libby is abandoned by her father and left with her controlling aunt. A new town, a new school, no friends—Libby is utterly alone. But then she meets Peter.

Peter The lead singer in a rock band with his brothers, Peter hates that his parents overly manage his life.

COVER REVEAL: Red Dirt Road (Saving Angels #2) by Annie Rose Welch

Red Dirt Road by Annie Rose Welch Book 2 in the Saving Angels series Adult romance Expected Publication: September 24th, 2013
The Saving Angels Series continues…

A new cast is introduced, while journeys already taken start to merge with the present, leading you down the old Red Dirt Road.

Death has always seemed just one step behind Layla Hill, taking almost everyone she’s ever loved. After she loses the love of her life, Layla vows to never love again—how could she, when she’s a death magnet?

Trying to outrun fate traveling with her uncle Willie and his band, Layla meets Michael Roberts, a beautiful Irish boxer as gentle on the piano as he is brutal in the ring. He proves as relentless in life, fighting for a place in her world even as she pushes him away, trying to protect him from her killer tendencies.

But neither foresees the sinister presence waiting for Layla at the end of the Red Dirt Road.

GCRPromotions is currently organizing a tour for Red Dirt Road. If you're interested…

BLOG TOUR: Unchained (Nephilim Rising #1) by J. Lynn

About the Book
Unchained (Nephilim Rising #1) Publication: September 17, 2013 By: Entangled Edge Genre: Adult 3.75 Stars
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads
Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just...wants her, Lily is about ready to trade in forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm.

The fact that she and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary, but she can't shake her not-so-angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.

Her forbidden relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion when a traitor is discovered to be working within the Sanctuary. Lily quickly finds herself hunted by well, everyone.

Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything--and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her...and not…

Blogger Spotlight: Laura from Music Plus Books

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes!
The Blogger in the Spotlight today is, Laura, from Music Plus Books!


Music Plus Books is a fun blog for music and book lovers alike!  Laura even dabbles in blog design, so you should definitely check her out.


Hi Laura! Can you tell me a little bit about yourself? (Maybe something that isn't included in the About Me section of your blog?)  I don't know if anyone cares but I'm actually Asian! Proud Vietnamese Aussie. (I happen to think that's pretty awesome!)


When someone says, "Oh, you have a blog? What is is about?" How do you answer that? My blog is all about the books and music that I both enjoy and don't enjoy. I just like to share and interact with my followers.
What is your favorite genre to read and why?  I love YA! I don't think I can choose a specific subgenre because I honestly love all of them. YA is just so addicting. I love the age groups and the writing. Some adult books just take so much energy to read, understan…
