Today I’m a stop on the tour for The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman. She is sharing with us her inspirations behind writing this lovely book!
Hello and welcome to our very FIRST Book Avengers post! Today we are featuring The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. If you’ve read our intro post you know that this book has been on both of our TBR piles for awhile and we are very excited to start this series together for our new feature!
He’s the terror of the ton…
The plan is simple:
1. Descend from the Highlands to face the aggravation of a London Season;
2. Foist his wild sister off on some gullible English lord;
3. Retreat before the ladies of the scandalized ton can get any ideas.
Determined to see his hellion of a sister wed, Highlander Alexander Waters is willing to face anything—even the English. He just didn’t expect his own rough manners to cause such a riot…or for a blooming English rose to catch his eye.
Gently bred Catherine Middlebrook must find a respectable man to marry or her family will be ruined. She won’t allow herself to be distracted by Highland barbarians…no matter how her body may thrill whenever Alex is near.
Catherine wasn’t part of the plan, but as their battle of wills escalates, Alex comes to realize this “proper” English girl is as wild as the Highlands themselves…and nothing will stop him from having her.

I’ll Be Home for Christmas by Lori Wilde is book 7 in the Twilight, Texas series. I’m in the middle of reading it now and it’s pretty adorable. I love small town romances and this is definitely one small town with some quirky characters. I’ll be reviewing it soon, so stay tuned! (And thanks to HarperCollins for a review copy!)
About the Book
Hey guys! Today on the blog I’m welcoming Ms Kate Brauning, author of How We Fall, on the blog. She is going to share excerpts from the book, a giveaway, and one of my favs – songs that remind her of the book. Check out what she has to say, ok?
Hello, readers! I’m so happy to be here on Gone Pecan for the paperback release tour of my YA contemporary romance, How We Fall. Below you can read the first chapter, and enter the international Goodreads giveaway, and I’m also here to show you my playlist for the book. I tried to do something pretty cool with it by using the playlist more as a soundtrack, with specific songs for specific scenes. Let me know if you like that kind of playlist in the comments!
About the book:
Ever since Jackie moved to her uncle’s sleepy farming town, she’s been flirting way too much–and with her own cousin, Marcus.
Her friendship with him has turned into something she can’t control, and he’s the reason Jackie lost track of her best friend, Ellie, who left for…no one knows where. Now Ellie has been missing for months, and the police, fearing the worst, are searching for her body. Swamped with guilt and the knowledge that acting on her love for Marcus would tear their families apart, Jackie pushes her cousin away. The plan is to fall out of love, and, just as she hoped he would, Marcus falls for the new girl in town. But something isn’t right about this stranger, and Jackie’s suspicions about the new girl’s secrets only drive the wedge deeper between Jackie and Marcus.
Then Marcus is forced to pay the price for someone else’s lies as the mystery around Ellie’s disappearance starts to become horribly clear. Jackie has to face terrible choices. Can she leave her first love behind, and can she go on living with the fact that she failed her best friend?
