Did I Notice Your Book?

Thanks to Ciara Knight and Ninja Alex Cavanaugh for this clever blogfest!

Here are the guidelines:

Post about a book you’ve noticed.

You can choose a book that you’ve read, something you saw on a blog or social media site, Goodreads, or a sales website. Anything that caught your eye because of a great cover, blurb or reviews, but DON’T tell the author that their book has been noticed. Instead, shout out on social media sites, and encourage others to do the same, until the author finds his/her book.

Leave a blog comment at Ninja Captain Alex or Ciara Knight when the author finds their book. 

I've actually noticed TWO books recently (hopefully that's not cheating?)

First, I met author Kyra Lennon on the A to Z Blog Challenge in April, when she posted compelling excerpts about a soccer romance (I love sports romances.)

Then I blink and suddenly her debut novel Game On had already been released! How could I have missed it?

That cover bends it like Iniesta!

Naturally I had to get my hands on Kyra's novel and I loved it. Here's my 5 star REVIEW.

Just yesterday I noticed another book, this one by my pub sister Alison Oburia. Her romantic suspense (also a favorite genre) Between the Lies launches in one week (10-23-12) and I can't wait to read it.

Doctoral student Cari Lopez’s academic life is in a rut, but when she comes home to discover a stranger asleep on her doorstep, her personal life becomes immediately more interesting. British accountant Tristan Saunders is a kindred spirit—with a fantastic accent—and there’s a connection kindling, but Cari soon learns he’s made an enemy of the Bulgarian mafia. His trip to the US is far from a vacation.

The enemy is hidden, yet ominously present and always watching. And though they’ve known each other merely a few days, Cari and Tristan are soon on the run for their lives.

Alison Oburia’s layered storytelling reveals a tale of international intrigue and complex relationships, which is distilled to its essence in two hearts. Not everything is as it appears, and people are not who they seem to be. Faced with deception at all angles, Cari must sort out what’s real. If she’s to stay alive—and possibly fall in love, she has to find the truth…between the lies.

Doesn't that sound great? I'm totally into the Mafia, romance, and suspense.

I look forward to checking out what books YOU have noticed. Have fun today.

Such a fabulous idea for a blog hop! And I didn't know Kyra's book is out, either. It looks so good!
First to post for the blogfest! And I see Kyra found it right away.

I totally agree with you on Kyra's cover! I'm not doing this blogfest (as I knew I'd be a bad visitor today) but if I were, this probably would've been the book I picked.

I'm looking forward Alison's too!

Have fun on the fest & I'll tweet your recs right now.
Sounds like the twisty, turning suspense novels I love. Thanks for sharing.
Two great novels to add to my list of to-read . . .

I have been interested in Kyra's books for a while. May need to bump them up a bit on the TBR list.
