Weekend Book Buzz – 11/12 August 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! It’s been a busy book week for me, as you’ll see from the reviews posted below, so I hope you’re looking for a good book to read. We’re also getting definite hints that spring is on the way, with some lovely sunny days this week. There’s nothing quite like the warmth of the sun!

Have you read a great book this week? I’d love to hear about it!

I have two cover reveals for you this week. Kara Isaac has revealed the cover for All Made Up, releasing on 28 September. For more details or to pre-order at the special price of $3.99, click on the graphic.

~ Events ~

Last week I mentioned two release parties that were taking place on 14 August 2018. This week, I’m amending that. Only one of these parties will now be held on 14 August 2018, and that’s the party for Robin Carroll’s Darkwater Secrets. It starts at 7pm CST, and you can go to the event page by clicking on the graphic below.

If you put 14 August 2018 in your diary last week for Ronie Kendig and Lynette Eason’s release party, then this is your official notification to change the date! To avoid conflicting with Robin Carroll’s release party, this party will now take place on 21 August 2018 from 7pm EST. There’s no link yet, but stay tuned!
