1. "Waiting On" Wednesday

INFO: So here at The Blooming Reader annd various other book blogs, we do a little something called "Waiting On" Wednesdays. This is where we post an upcoming release that we can't wait to get our hands on.
Ugly Love

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

1.Teaser Tuesday( Sorry by the way this is late.)

INFO: So here at The Blooming Reader and various other book blogs, we do a little something called Teaser Tuesdays. If you never heard of it, it's where I give you enticing quote(s) from my current read, to tease you. Hence the name, TEASER Tuesday.

OK.. moving on. I am currently reading this mindblowing book that I can't wait to finish! The storyline is awesome, the characters are amazing, and the cover(which lured me into reading it in the first place) is GORGEOUS!
It's called.....
"THE FORSAKEN" Information below.

Here come the teasers...

"Hide! Hide!" my mom whispers harshly. She grabs my arm, hard enough to bruise it through my pajamas, and yanks me out of bed. We're halfway across my room when I hear a deafening crack. Our front door is beginning to splinter. "Run!" my mom screams, pushing me into the hallway. I see my dad at the front door, desperately trying to barricade it with furniture. There's no time to hide. No time to reach the kitchen and the hollowed-out space in the wall behind the refigerator. The front door gives way.....

As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the U.S., and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help but stand out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to The Wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up.

The life expectancy of prisoners on The Wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and the other prisoners concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway.
