This week we get to talk about New-To-Us Favorite Authors We Read For The First Time In 2016.  And they are….

falling kingdoms morgan rhodes
(Chelsea’s Choice – Review)
the demon king cinda williams chima
(Chelsea’s Choice – Review)

1. Morgan Rhodes – This cat and mouse game Morgan Rhodes has created is something else, and I haven’t felt this desperate in a long long time.  This series, while action heavy and full of blood, destruction, mayhem, and peril, didn’t grip me for that reason. No, this series gripped me on a far more addicting level, and that honor solely belongs to my dear Magnus….and even Cleo.

2. Cinda Williams Chima – There is just something appealing about being pulled in when you didn’t expect to be. The unexpected gives you so much more than knowing every little thing that might happen. So, when my tummy did a little flip flop when we first met Han in the beginning…..I knew I was going to be a forever fan of this series

Nevermore kelly creagh

(Chelsea’s Choice – Review)

3. Kelly Creagh – Epic. Beautiful. Heart-wrenching. Perfection. This series is just so addicting…I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. And this final book was everything the first book was and more. Everything I could ask for. Peril. Devastation. Heart-stopping romance.

4. Rachel Caine – I love the atmosphere, the boy, the main girl, but sometimes it’s a bit lighter. I love that, but starting this series certainly made my heart pound in ways that are completely out of this world.

(Chelsea’s Choice – Review)
under the never sky veronica rossi
(Jen’s Choice – Review)

5. Swati Avasthi – Each chapter, layered with vivid, imaginative, and candid storytelling, ensnared me in ways I can’t even begin to express. It’s a story not often told, at least not correctly, and I think it’s an important book for people to read. I am on a huge realistic fiction kick, of that I am certain everyone is aware, but none have spoken to me on such a deep emotional level like this one did. 

6. Veronica Rossi  – This series captivated my attention and made me an emotional mess.  I was constantly flitting between butterflies, smiles, devastation and heartache.   I won’t be able to get their world or these characters out of my head for a long time to come.

On The Fence Kasie West
(Jen’s Choice – Review)
sweet evil wendy higgins
(Jen’s Choice – Review)

7. Kasie West – Her books make me want to spin circles while laughing and smiling.  Seriously.  They are beyond adorable.

8. Wendy Higgins –  I am always on the lookout for a paranormal story that makes me want to smile with happiness while my heart is beating fast from the romance and perilous situations.  And The Sweet Series did just that!

infinity-jus-accardo
(Jen’s Choice – Review)
Xenophobia S.B. Roozenboom
(Jen’s Choice – Review)

9. Jus Accardo – Infinity haunted my dreams and interrupted my thoughts throughout the day.  I couldn’t stop thinking about this book.  I loved getting swept away by the action, adventure and the unknown.  And when I reached that last page,  I wasn’t ready to stop being in their world.  Even though it ended absolutely perfect and left me so excited for where the next book is headed!

10. S.B. Roozenboom – Tevire slowly seeped into my heart and I found myself completely falling for him.  Watching him interact with Ness showed who he truly was.  He was selfless.  He was protective.  He had a sense of humor.  He was so many amazing things wrapped up into one beautiful being.  But my favorite aspect about him?  The things Tevire did to protect Ness was gut wrenching, sweaty palm inducing and entirely swoon worthy.

So these are  New-To-Us Favorite Authors We Read For The First Time In 2016!  Do you share any of the same with us?  Of did you already fall for their books before 2016?

TOP TEN TUESDAY – A Little About Us

TOP TEN TUESDAY – A Little About Us

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week we get to talk about A Little About Us.  So here’s a peak into who we are when we don’t have our nose stuck in a book! 🙂

Jen:

1.  I accidentally cut off my younger brother’s pinky finger when I was 4.  We weren’t good at the doorbell game we created but luckily the Dr. was able to sew it back on.

2.  I sing Disney and Eminem songs in the shower, alternating between the two.  My favorite songs to sing are Drug Ballad by Eminem and Part Of Your World in The Little Mermaid.

3.  I never wanted to be a stay-at-home mom until I had a rough pregnancy and an I-almost-died-at-birth with Ryan, my first born.  It completely changed my mind and now I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.

4.  I’m afraid of the dark and subject poor Andy, my husband, to sleeping with a nightlight.  I’ve read one to many scary books and have watched one too many scary movies in the past and the monsters lurk in the dark!!!

5.  I can talk in a woodchuck voice just like Joey on Full House.

6.  I’m not a huge TV person (unless I’m on my eleptical).  I’d rather be outside playing with my kids, running, wakeboarding, or snowboarding.

7.  I LOVE anything finance!  Readjusting budgets, analyzing savings or deciding upon a mutual fund for retirement is fun for me.

8.  I have a filthy mouth.  I’ve even shocked a few Marines with what has spilled out of it.  I worked on quitting because I really didn’t want Ryan (he’s 5) or Jacob (he’s 3) kicked out of school someday ha!

9.  I learned how to dance by imitating the dancers on MTV’s The Grind in the early/mid 90’s.  I have been given nicknames for how I dance lol.  Hence why I am not allowed to teach our children how to dance.

10.  I never believed in fate until I ran into Andy, my husband, 3 times at College the first day we met.

✩✮✩✮✩

Chelsea:

1. I met my husband when I was sixteen (High School sweethearts for the win!) and we’ve been together ten years (26/27 years old)

2. I love animals so much it borders on crazy

3. To build on 2, my husband (somehow) convinced me we needed fresh eggs so we now have chickens (whom I love and cherish (oddly))

4. My two dogs, Ellie and Mya (Pomeranian and Doberman) are my children, though we are hoping for a real addition here soon *fingers crossed*

5. As much as I love books, movies were my first love and passion

6. I collect movie posters and frame them, then I hang them in the basement so it’s like a movie theater

7. I am obsessed with anything superhero! Books, movies, etc….Spider-Man (Garfield) and Batman (Bale) are my favorites.

8. I know every episode, season, line, character quirk, Rachel-Hairstyle, and quote from Friends.

9.  My sister is my best friend forever and always

10. I have a tattoo behind my right ear

Oh! And we now have two ducks 😛 

✩✮✩✮✩

So that’s A Little About Us.  Do you have anything fun to share?  Or link up your TTT posts so we can learn more about you! ♥
