The Romeo Catchers Cover Reveal

I am thrilled that I get to reveal the long awaited cover for The Romeo Catchers (The Casquette Girls #2)  by Alys Arden! I devoured The Casquette Girls in July.  Take a look at my review here.  I have been itching to get my hands on The Romeo Catchers and now I’m thrilled there’s a release date AND a cover!

Publication date:  May 23rd 2017
Genres:  Paranormal, Young Adultunnamed

Tormented by the fate she condemned her mother to, and by the lies she’s forced to tell to cover it up, Adele scours Storm-ravaged New Orleans for the truth about her family’s magical past. But every turn leads her back to the one person she’s determined to forget: Niccolò Medici. Not even the multitude of enchanted locks on the attic door trapping Nicco within can break their connection.

Sensing Nicco calling to Adele, Isaac tries relentlessly to keep her from exploring paths too dark that would endanger them all. But a new threat is rising: the Medici’s presence has attracted something else to New Orleans…an older enemy, one that will bring Isaac’s haunted past to life, test the witches’ friendships, and jeopardize Adele and Isaac’s blossoming relationship.

In this spellbinding continuation of The Casquette Girls saga, Adele must draw on the past—from seventeenth-century Florence, a time bubbling with alchemy and fraternal betrayal—and sort history from fantasy if she is to have any chance of saving her mother, her coven, and her magic.

I ADORE this cover and it matches so well with the first one!

Alys Arden was raised by the street performers, tea leaf-readers, and glittering drag queens of the New Orleans French Quarter. She cut her teeth on the streets of New York and has worked all around the world since. She either talks too much or not at all. She obsessively documents things. Her hair ranges from eggplant to cotton-candy colored. One dreary day in London, she missed home and started writing The Casquette Girls.

unnamed-2Her debut novel garnered over one million reads online before it was acquired by Skyscape in a two book deal. Her second book is due out winter 2016.

Alys is represented by ICM. And she still plans to run away with the circus one star swept night.

Library Haul

My first and last trip to the library in my town (willing that I’ll be in Florida the rest of the year).



I was so happy for the selection! And I love my library. Though my time there was quick, I love the building and wish I could visit more often.

There’s just something about being someplace where books live, knowing that they’ve been loved.

Book Haul

Why did I buy so many books before Christmas? Honestly, I don’t know.


Wanderlove was a Thriftbooks buy and The Unseemly Education of Anne Merchant I found on Amazon for $1.80ish. Crazy good deal. The rest were bought with coupon codes from Amazon or Barnes & Noble. I always try to not buy a book for full price unless it’s brand new and I neeeeeed it. This time of year is great for book buying because everyone has awesome deals going on. I’m a sucker for book deals.

I will hopefully have these read soon and the reviews will be up in the new year!

‘Tis the Season

Since it’s Christmastime, I am going to review some of my favorite Christmas/Holiday themed books! I love reading about holiday romances. They’re cheesy but they’re so wonderful. They really get me in the Christmas spirit. I’ve always thought there was something inherently wonderful and magical about snow. I don’t know if I could spend Christmas somewhere that didn’t have the possibility of snow for Christmas. Magic seems real when there’s snow for some reason to me.

So be on the lookout for

  • Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances – John Green, Maureen Johnson, & Lauren Myracle
  • My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Romances – Edited by Stephanie Perkins
  • Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares – Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
  • The Snow Child – Eowyn Ivey
  • The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe – C. S. Lewis
  • Snowed In– Rachel Hawthorne
  • Ex-Mas – Kate Brian
  • Mistletoe: Four Holiday Romances – Hailey Abbot, Melissa de la Cruz, Aimee Friedman, & Nina Malkin

These are the ones I have planned, but if I find others, I’ll include them as well. Since it is Christmas break in two weeks, I’ll have time to read in addition to all the Graduation party planning I’ll be doing. Woohoo!

I will be curling up in oversized sweatshirts drinking hot toddies/ hot chocolate/coffee and reading these wonderful novels while *hopefully* snow is falling outside.  It’s the most wonderful time of the year! What will YOU be reading?

I hope you enjoy my reviews and Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays everyone!

Coming Up…

Just bought a bunch of new books because life after graduation is stressing me out!


  • Not That Kind of Girl- Lena Dunham
  • Station Eleven- Emily St. John Mandel
