Whilst I made myself go on yet another book buying ban (I fail pretty badly at these, it's pretty much been going on for two years now but the book pile is still getting larger) I thought maybe it'd be easier if I gave myself a one book per month allowance and it's kind of helping.

The Assured Destruction series by Michael F. Stewart I've received as part of a book tour review, I've yet to start them as they're fairly short books but these are next on my to read list. Bird After Bird by Leslea Tash is another book I received for review which I really enjoyed, and some of you may remember how much I loved Shattered Veil by Tracy E. Banghart, well this was the book I purchased this month, signed too and Tracy was kind enough to send bookmarks and a badge my way too!

News from Lauren
I'm off University for Easter at the moment but as I don't have long left upon returning I've got a lot of work to do for the end of year deadlines, I'm pretty excited about some of the work I've been doing and even started up my own tumblog to keep track of the work I do over the next few years, at the moment I've been sharing finished and works in progress.
Also next weekend I'm heading to iseries which will be a blast, though no time for reading! A long weekend of gaming sounds like a good way to take a break from my university work though.

Please note that I've implemented a new drop down menu at the top but some pages are still in progress so the links haven't been added yet!

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Sage by Christina Channelle

It's cover reveal time!
Thanks to Kelly at Diva Booknerd and Christina Channelle I am able to share with you the cover for...

Sage by Christina Channelle

Publication Date: April 2014
Genres: Young Adult / Paranormal

Synopsis: I know that - what we are. But why do you hate me? Escape. It was the only word pounding through fallen angel Sage Cross’ mind when her world came crashing in. Fallon was nothing but a painful memory, something she wanted - no, needed - to forget. Now she has a chance to let that part of her past go and be in a place where she can finally heal. A place where lamia and lapsus don’t exist and she can just be… Sage. But of course, it doesn't last. Nothing ever lasts. Her happily mediocre life with her cat familiar, Sunny, and best friends, Janie and Perkins, is nothing but a mirage. Especially when a brooding vampire - first name Adam, last name irrelevant - takes root in her life. Someone who hates her for simply existing, yet she is unable to get him out of her mind. Or her heart. With her brother and friends in danger, Sage is the key to either ending it all or causing the destruction of not one, but two supernatural beings. Fallen angels. Lapsus. Vampires. Lamia. Who will survive? Sage, the final installment in the Blood Crave Series.
