I've just read that Before I Fall, by the amazing Lauren Oliver has been optioned for a film! I can't wait to see who they cast as Sam, Elody, Ally and Lindsay! This is definitely one of my favourite books. You can read my review here.


Crescendo, by Becca Fitzpatrick, has a new cover and it is amazing! Want to know why it's raining on the cover? Read this:

…Patch stood over me, and a drop of rain slid from his hair, landing like ice on my collarbone.  I felt it slide along my skin, disappearing beneath the neckline of my shirt.  His eyes followed the raindrop, and I began to quiver on the inside...

Ahhhhhhhhh! Patch, how did I forget about you?
That right there had my swooning and wishing Crescendo was out NOW!

Did you know that Fallen Archangel is holding a giveaway where you can win the ARC? And it's open INTERNATIONALLY! :D

Hush, Hush is another of my favourite books, and you can read my review here, and my interview with Becca here.

I'm sure most of you know this, so I'm reminding those that know and telling those that don't.
WOWIO is offering a free download of the book The Choir Boats, by Daniel A. Rabuzzi.

Read the summary:
London, 1812 | Yount, Year of the Owl

What would you give to make good on the sins of your past? For merchant Barnabas McDoon, the answer is: everything.

When emissaries from a world called Yount offer Barnabas a chance to redeem himself, he accepts their price -- to voyage to Yount with the key that only he can use to unlock the door to their prison. But bleak forces seek to stop him: Yount's jailer, a once-human wizard who craves his own salvation, kidnaps Barnabas's nephew. A fallen angel -- a monstrous owl with eyes of fire -- will unleash Hell if Yount is freed. And, meanwhile, Barnabas's niece, Sally, and a mysterious pauper named Maggie seek with dream-songs to wake the sleeping goddess who may be the only hope for Yount and Earth alike.
This book is the first in its series, and it sounds really exciting. I've downloaded it and will read it after I finish reading Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen, which I'm really liking.
(I just browsed through the PDF, and it's 412 pages long! :O )

One book I can't wait to read is Paranormalcy, by Kiersten White, so naturally, when I saw this:

I couldn't not post it! This is beautiful! I'm sure I'll love it. Paranormalcy comes out on August 31st! (I'll have to wait a little longer to get it, but I don't mind waiting.)

Kiersten has a really cool blog, if you haven't checked it out yet, go here.



Jess at The Cozy Reader has reviewed Other, by Karen Kincy. Here's what she had to say:
While I didn’t “love” this book I know a lot of “others” have enjoyed it. So I’d like to give it away!
Read the rest of her review here. Go here to enter Jess's giveaway. Open to US addresses only.

Bella at Obsessed is holding an awesome contest where you can win new copies of Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins, and Paranormalcy, by Kiersten White.

All you have to do is help her find the title to a novel she loves, but can't remember!

I'm making this a new feature in TCM, borrowing the idea from The Story Siren.

Before I Fall would make a cool movie! But... I'm not sure that being "optioned" is the same thing as actually being made into a movie. I guess we'll see. The book was pretty popular, so I don't see why it wouldn't do well as a movie (unless they totally butcher the screenplay).
