Welcome to the Pre-Squee, a new weekly feature here at the Bookworms and at The Book Swarm. Some books, though they might not be coming out for a few months, need an early squee — we just can’t hold in our excitement about them! Sure, we’ll do full reviews closer to the release date but this feature gives us a chance to share a little bit of our love, whether it be for the story, cover, characters, or whatever. We’re quite flexible in our book love.
So today we Squee about

VELVET is the next book picked up to be published by the macmillan site “Swoon Reads” and…after they picked a Contemprary last time, they now pieced a paranormal!!! Squee!
and yes, it doesn’t even have a cover yet, but I was so thrilled when I heard that and even more thrilled when I read the synopsis and some comments, that I had to sure this with you so that we can be excited together!
After losing both her parents before age 17, aspiring designer Caitlin Holte doesn’t feel like moving, starting a new school, staying with her estranged aunt, or…living at all really. But after a terrifying encounter with a supernatural force, she learns that the world is a lot more complicated than she thought. Also, her hot bad-boy neighbor, Adrian (who might have just saved her life) is actually a half-demon vampire.
Suddenly Caitlin is stuck with a vampire bodyguard determined to protect her. And Adrian has decided the best way to do that is for the two of them to pretend to be dating. Trouble is, Caitlin is starting to fall in love for real, while Adrian can never love a human. And then there’s the supernatural threat that flung them together in the first place—Adrian’s demonic dad
