Memorial Day Mini Read-A-Thon



Ah, the weekend is here and it's a long one! While everyone else plans parties, barbeques, and get togethers, I'm planning on what I'm going to read this weekend while I relax at home.

Seriously guys, this week ate my life. I got virtually nothing done that wasn't work (as is evidenced by my lack of posts), and I'm exhausted. I'm looking forward to a weekend filled with wine, books, and lots of me time.

Happily, all of my library reservations came in at the same time! So here's what I plan on reading this weekend.



The first book in this series was adorable! Plus I love Lauren Oliver to the ends of the Earth, and so I won't ever turn anything down that she's written. I'm about 40% through this book so far, and I can't wait to finish it up tonight!









This is the third in a series that I'm absolutely, positively, hooked on. Lockwood, George and Lucy are some of my all time favorite characters. They get up to all kinds of mischief, and they're so much braver than I could ever be around terrifying ghosts! I'm listening to this on audio, and loving every minute of it.







I've been eagerly waiting for my turn to borrow this book from the library. I love the cover, I love the premise, and the overall reception from the book community has been sensational! I can only hope that it won't let me down, because I have major excitement over reading this book.







So those are my lofty goals. I'll be extra happy if I can get through these, and also start on Some Kind of Happiness by Claire Legrand. That's another library book that recently came through, and it's another super anticipated one as well. I'm just a happy bookworm.

Have you read any of these? Do you have a favorite? Let me know!

Book Spotlight + Giveaway: Curse by Steven James

Curse
Steven James
(Blur Trilogy #3)
Published by: Skyscape
Publication date: May 24th 2016
Genres: Thriller, Young Adult
Don’t miss this intriguing and climactic conclusion to the Blur Trilogy.
As Daniel Byers prepares to attend a basketball camp before his senior year of high school, the terrifying blurs that’ve plagued him for the last nine months return.
Dark images begin to haunt him—creatures crawling from the deepest pits of his nightmares, glimmers of chilling memories from his early childhood. But before he can unearth the meaning behind his mysterious hallucinations, Daniel must team up with two other extraordinary teens to save a young woman who has been abducted by a scientist obsessed with enacting his own warped form of justice.
This atmospheric mystery picks up where Fury left off and takes readers into the uncharted regions where reality and madness intertwine.
Dr. Waxford wound his way along the road, climbing higher into the Great Smoky Mountains.
He and his team had made great strides in the last couple of years, but the loss of the research facility in northern Wisconsin last December had slowed things down—that is, until they located this old hotel here in this remote part of eastern Tennessee.

Actually, the site was ideal. It was isolated and lay at the end of a one-lane road that had hardly been used in years.

Back in the 1950s when a new highway was built that wrapped around the other side of the mountain, it took the tourists and other businesses with it. The hotel owners went bankrupt and the property went into foreclosure.

Rumored to be haunted, the Estoria Inn had sat empty for decades and was being reclaimed by the forest when Adrian and his team started renovations. Most people, even those in the nearby towns, had forgotten that this place even existed.

And none of them knew what kind of research was happening there now.

Which was probably a good thing.

Fortuitously, the Estoria was also less than an hour drive for the hypnotherapist Adrian sometimes brought up to implant suggestions in the minds of his subjects after they’d been put into a deep trance.

When you pay a hypnotist enough, you can get him to implant any suggestions that you want.

Despair. Depression. Loneliness. They can all be the tools you use in the service of the
greater good.

Best known for his high-octane thrillers, Steven James is the award-winning author of eleven suspense novels. The Blur Trilogy is his first mystery series for teens. Steven has taught creative writing around the world and loves rock climbing, science fiction movies, and chicken fajitas. Find him at www.stevenjames.net.
