The Week's Entrée #24

Happy start of the week, everyone! The Chef and I are on vacation in the U.S. so it's been hard staying in touch with the blog, bloggers and other bookish activities. I miss having wifi and a computer 24/7, there are so many posts and reviews to finish for upcoming tours that I'm going a bit crazy right now trying to have everything ready. The time finally arrived for me to get more organized.

For now, I'll leave you once again with a short post about my VERY small book haul and what I'm reading this week. ;)

Changes by Gillian Felix
Published: July 25th, 2013/GillianFx Publishing, LLC
Genre: YA Contemporary
Adriana Banovic’s 15th birthday sucked! She got fired after eight years of playing Shayanne Montgomery on the #1 soap in the country, found out that her family was on the verge of bankruptcy and worst of all, forced to return to Westwood Academy. Her only saving grace was a chance glance at dreamy mystery boy Haze Lyndon. Armed with only his picture and a determination to find him—even if it means turning Los Angeles over on its ass.

In this young adult novel, you’ll meet Robin Banovic, Adriana’s father; financially challenged, dealing with the death of a family member and his brother’s disappearance. You’ll meet Savannah DaCosta aka Savi, mother/manager; Savi enjoys the life her rock star daughter Leighann has provided. When Leighann makes a choice to end her career, Savi sees it as a personal attack. You’ll meet college boy Haze Lyndon; New to Los Angeles, Haze soon realizes how quickly money changes hands in the City of Angels. Will he return to questionable ways to survive or go back to the safety of his family in Wisconsin?

I was invited to join the blog tour for the Family Portrait series by Gillian Felix, and since I'm flooded with so many books, I chose to only review the first book/novella. It's a quick read and by the looks of it, a grea start to the series.

Drowned by Nichola Reilly is turning out to be GREAT. Mind you, I'm barely 27% into the book but its MC is so different and so so awesome, I already feel in  love with this book. Hope it doesn't disappoint me!
