“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.
This week’s selection is:
Book: Walking Disaster (Beautiful #2)
Author: Jamie McGuire
Release Date: April 16th 2013
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N
How much is too much to love?
Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.
In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. Just when he thought he was invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.
Why I’m waiting:
With the newly released cover Walking Disaster was just begging to be posted. I mean, have you looked at that cover? Man! I know there was a lot of talk over Beautiful Disaster, both good and bad, and while I lay in the middle of it all, I can’t resist getting into Travis’ head. Male point of views are always far more interesting, don’t you think? 😉
So, what are you waiting on? Leave a comment with your WoW link below and I’ll make sure to check it out!
Yup, today is my birthday and I turn 21! Yay me! 😉
(I know you’re seeing the number 22, but for my sake I needed Rob with me on my birthday so, you know… deal with it!)
Given the big occasion, and that I’ve been a succesful blogger for three full month (successful meaning I’m still here), I thought I could do a big giveaway.
What do you say? You agree? Yeah, me too!
I took my time picking the books I’ll be giving away. Since I live in Uruguay and taxes suck and I don’t have a job, I’ll be giving away ebooks, so yes, it’s international! YAY! 😀
Now to the list, and let me just tell you that they are all on my favorites list, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
Are you ready? Yes? Let’s do this! Continue reading
Book: Beautiful Disaster

GoodReads | Amazon | B&N
The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand.
Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.
I’ve caved in. I read it. Finally I read it!
This is a difficult review to write. I’m trying to stay honest and not turn this into an endless ranting, but it’s hard. Who am I kidding? It’s not going to work! Rant here I come!
Beautiful Disaster is a train wreck (in a good way). Travis’ and Abby’s relationship is a train wreck, one that just didn’t happen to end on tragedy. This book is a train wreck and it will mess with your head. You will either love it or hate it, there’s no in-between.
