I, Daphne Fox, have a few things to confess:
1. I hate Nick Brady. Loathe. Abhor. Can’t stand him 95% of the time.
2. That other 5%? I’m not talking about that at all.
3. People think I’m lucky for surviving the car crash. I disagree.
4. Nick is the only guy who makes my nightmares go away.
5. I won’t love him, though. Love is not worth the pain.
I, Nick Brady, have a few confessions of my own:
1. I don’t hate Daphne Fox. At all.
2. I find her scar sexy. Just like the rest of her.
3. I may be her older brother’s best friend, but that’s not going to stop me.
4. I love her.
5. And I’m going to do everything I can to have her. (via Goodreads)

A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall
The creative writing teacher, the delivery guy, the local Starbucks baristas, his best friend, her roommate, and the squirrel in the park all have one thing in common—they believe that Gabe and Lea should get together. Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out. But somehow even when nothing is going on, something is happening between them, and everyone can see it. Their creative writing teacher pushes them together. The baristas at Starbucks watch their relationship like a TV show. Their bus driver tells his wife about them. The waitress at the diner automatically seats them together. Even the squirrel who lives on the college green believes in their relationship.
Surely Gabe and Lea will figure out that they are meant to be together….
Today we are luck enough to host a little interview with Sandy Hall herself as well as a giveaway for her debut book A Little Something Different!
So, um…we haven’t posted for Bout of Books yet, but we’ve been super crazy busy. So here is our reading for Monday & Tuesday:
Well here we are again. Another bout is about to begin and like always I’m in need of a reading wake up call. It has been a bit quiet here at GP for the past couple weeks for several reasons and we are so sorry! Hopefully this BoB will get things hopping again! So with that being said, we are officially announcing that we will be participating. Come join us in the reading frenzy. :)
Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
Five strangers. Countless adventures. One epic way to get lost.
Four teens across the country have only one thing in common: a girl named LEILA. She crashes into their lives in her absurdly red car at the moment they need someone the most.
There’s HUDSON, a small-town mechanic who is willing to throw away his dreams for true love. And BREE, a runaway who seizes every Tuesday—and a few stolen goods along the way. ELLIOT believes in happy endings…until his own life goes off-script. And SONIA worries that when she lost her boyfriend, she also lost the ability to love.
Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia find a friend in Leila. And when Leila leaves them, their lives are forever changed. But it is during Leila’s own 4,268-mile journey that she discovers the most important truth— sometimes, what you need most is right where you started. And maybe the only way to find what you’re looking for is to get lost along the way.

Hey guys. So, I haven’t been around all that much for a while and it has been even longer since I’ve been around on some of your blogs. For this I am sorry. I am not being lazy I swear (though I wish that was it) and I haven’t spoken much about why I’ve been MIA except a bit on twitter. You see, my mom has cancer. This is actually the second time she has had to go through this but this time is different. She’s been in treatment and it is no longer operable. Her only option right now is to start radiation and we are hopeful and praying that it will work. Now with that being said she has to basically move to Houston (4 hours away) since these treatments will be everyday for over a month and her risk for complications is much larger since she has already had radiation before and where she has to get it now. I’m not going to spill everything here. . .this is more my mom’s story than mine but just know I’m still here and I still want to be a part of this great blogger world with all of you but I probably won’t be posting very often at all since I will be spending a lot of time on the road back and forth to see her and spend time with my family. I will be stepping back from all features I participate in for the time being but will still finish up blog tours, etc I’ve committed to since I can get that scheduled in advance. I will definitely still be on twitter and emailing since everyone needs a distraction so I will still be around somewhere. :)
Thanks to everyone for the support so far and please keep my mom in your prayers.
Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.
While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?
