Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover?
Ignoring the fact that the description is on the cover, I buy most of my books based on what the cover looks like. However, there are a couple I have bought because I loved the cover so much the description didn’t matter.
Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary?
I wasn’t prepared to request any more ARCs soon due to school but I couldn’t pass this one up!
Gen Richards is tired of living down to her family’s expectation of the helpless blind girl. Resurrecting her high-school bucket list that begins with “kiss a total stranger” seems just the thing until she finds herself in a panty-melting lip lock with her big brother’s best friend.
Chance Anderson thrives on adrenaline, but Genny’s the one risk he’s not willing to take. His recklessness a decade ago landed her in the hospital and ejected him from her life. He’s bad for her and everyone knows it—especially her big brother.
Chance reluctantly helps Gen complete her bucket list in order to keep her out of trouble. Running through a freezing fountain, playing Spin the Bottle while fending off a mad horde of stinging insects, and skinny dipping with homicidal attack swans don’t hold a candle to the real danger: falling for the one person he can never have.
Phase 3 – Sweet Talk: A book with great writing?
When you read as much as I do, this is almost impossible to answer. I am going with Sergei Lukyanenko because he is a master. You aren’t even aware of what he is doing until the end and your mind has already been blown.
Phase 4 – First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?
I have an entire page dedicated to this over at Back for Seconds.
Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night?
The last one, I believe was Spotless.
Phase 6 – Always on my mind: A book you could not stop thinking about?
Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book which you love the way it feels?
Phase 8 – Meeting the parents: A book which you would recommend to your family and friends?
This is difficult because we don’t read even the same genres. I guess if I had to choose anything, I would say Death by Black Hole. Even if you know nothing of space, the book is clear and written so that anyone can understand. Not to mention, it’s conversational tone makes it interesting as well as humourous.
Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series you know you will re read many times in the future?
There were a million and one series I could have chose, but honestly, Viehl’s Darkyn series hold a special place in my heart. The first time I read If Angels Burn (Darkyn #1), I hated it because it wasn’t what I wanted. I gave it a second chance and I was blown away by how great it was. Like, how had I missed that? Each time I read the series, it gets better and better.
