*FANGIRL SQUEALS* MORE AJ!!! I mean more Drenaline Surf! 😛 We finally have a cover for the sequel to Chasing Forever Down by Nikki Godwin. It’s my favorite out of all of her books so I’m really really really excited for this one. And it comes out next month so yay! The cover matches the new cover of the series and it’s really really pretty. I actually saw it days ago, and I immediately wanted to share it, but that goes against the rules of a cover reveal. Haha!

Genre: New Adult

Cover Reveal: Irresistible Reads Book Tours



Haley’s future has been waiting on the west coast for the past year, but she isn’t the only new face in Crescent Cove this summer. When Colby Taylor’s parents locate him and interrupt his surf competition, the surf star spirals out of control, dragging Drenaline Surf’s reputation through the mud and into the ground with him.

With Colby’s secrets plastered across surf magazines and tabloid headlines, Haley takes on the job of playing damage control for Drenaline Surf – which isn’t easy when Colby breaks everything he touches, Topher breaks the law, and Miles breaks his leg.
Instead of chasing dreams of forever, Haley spends her summer chasing the unraveling careers of the hottest new faces in the surf world, and she’s about to learn what happens when forever doesn’t last.

Wanting & Waiting: On the Fence by Kasie West


Wanting & Waiting: for all the upcoming releases I just need to have!


I have yet to find a Kasie West book that I would hate, provided I’ve only read two of her books. 😛 But I really do love her writing. And I should get myself a copy of Split Second soon. But what I really really want is actually On the Fence mostly because it’s a contemporary romantic comedy and I’m a sucker for such books. I just want it now! Also, I read her first contemporary novel, The Distance Between Us, and I adored it. So I really have high hopes for this one. I also love how the cover style matches the one on TDBU. And it looks really adorable, okay? I just want to read it as soon as possible!

Picture your life without free will. 
No choice. No voice. No personal direction. 
For 17 years, it’s the only path I’ve known. Always a follower, never in control, I am an afterthought, burying my impulses as I bend to the whims of another. I dream of someone taking notice-of falling in love and being kissed. But I probably never will. 
My name is Antares. I am a Shadow.
Deep in a secluded canyon lies Talline, a metropolis of mirrors filled with forces called Pentrals that outline our very existence. Antares, Pentral Class Two, took an oath to act without influence—to echo without opinion. But in a cruel twist of fate, she must watch as Violet, her person, encounters a tragedy that will change both their lives forever. When Violet starts making careless choices, Antares can no longer remain a silent silhouette. She won’t allow lost friendships, broken hearts, or those mysterious menaces looking out from the glass to tear apart Violet’s very being. In doing so, Antares unknowingly crosses forbidden boundaries and ends up illuminating a darkness much deeper than her own.
