So, let’s celebrate the book and the author and
wish them a happy Book Birthday.
So, are you ready to celebrate???
Here is our BBSO for this week!

Hourglass by Myra McEntire 
Links: goodreads, author webpage, amazon (Hardcover, Kindle)
(seriously, the hardcover looks amazing, the used a special paper for the jacket and 
it’s sooo soft and shiny and awesome..)

One hour to rewrite the past . . .

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?

Full of atmosphere, mystery, and romance, Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science-fiction genres in a seductive, remarkable young adult debut

Myra McEntire knows the words to every R and B hit of the last decade, but since she lives in the country music capital of America where her lyrical talents go sadly unappreciated, she chose to channel her mad word skills into creating sultry Southern timeslip novels.

But if you catch her at a signing, she can probably be convinced to rap with you anyway.

Awwww, this sounds so sosooooo amazing!!! When I first saw the cover floating around and when I saw the first review’s I knew I needed to read that one! And today finally it hit’s the shelves!!! Woooot!!! I will go and get it NOW!!! 

Happy Bookobirthday to Myra and Hourglass!

And… let’s please not forget ..

Passion by Lauren Kate
(Random House)
Links: goodreas, author webiste, amazon (Hardcover, Kindle)

“Every single lifetime, I’ll choose you. Just as you have chosen me. Forever.”

Luce would die for Daniel. And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . . .

Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.

Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history.

Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever.

Lauren Kate grew up in Dallas, went to school in Atlanta, and started writing in New York.
She is the author of Fallen and The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove. She lives in Laurel Canyon with her husband and hopes to work in a restaurant kitchen, get a dog, and learn how to surf.
She is currently at work on the sequel to Fallen.

Happy Bookobirthday to Kate and Passion!

Can I get a little fan girl squee here?? 
Fallen was one of the reasons why the Bookworms were born in the first 
place… I love this story so so so much. 
I got the signed (one more squee) hardcover at BEA but I’ll go and get 
the Kindle one right now too. I want to keep my precious hardcover without 
any marks.. 

other exciting releases …

And now… 
tell us which book do you want to celebrate? 
Which author do you want to wish a Happy Release Day?

    Well, I put my post and link in and everything, but I don't see it. Did I do something wrong? It says one link, but doesn't show mine? Anyway, I have pretty much the same ones as you. The only thing that stinks is that The Lost Voices I have going to my new addy and I couldn't stop it before it went out. So they want to hold it for two weeks and then send it there when I get there? What? Anyway….made me check my orders again thoroughly. I even had to cancel two preorders. I'll have to order them when I get moved. I can't wait to read all these new books!!!

    But I have to say, that Maureen Johnson's Name of the Star is off the charts awesome! I've never read her before, but I'm going to get some of her other things. She's great!!

  2. I saw your link and it was weird that it didn't show yours here. But I updated the linky and now your's is there:)) Thanks so much for participating! … and this sucks that with the new mailing address ;(( I'm really curious to hear what you have to say about Lost Voices, I still need to read one good review, so far all the Review's I read were not so good… and this although the premise sounds awesome!!!

    I haven't read a book from Maureen Johnson but Heather (from our blog lol) loves her so much! I guess I need to read one of her books soon!!
