#CuddlesByVal ~ 12/3/14

This is my version of Waiting on Wednesday but with more cuddles, books I can't wait to cuddle for various reasons.

What are we waiting on this week?  THIS!

This is Mackenzie’s story…

Mackenzie Wilson once had hope for what life had to offer, but everything changed on the night of her graduation. A year later, the only way she can find comfort is by keeping her head down and hoping she remains unnoticed at college.

When Bentley James discovered Mac in that twisted SUV, he was just a newbie EMT on his first call. It was a gut-wrenching moment that made him realize not everyone can be saved—and sometimes they don’t want to be.

A chance encounter on campus brings Bentley back into Mac’s life. Despite her initial resistance, he sets out to discover the girl hiding beneath a shield of seclusion. He evokes painful memories in Mac—but also feelings. As the spark between them grows, Mac must decide if she can let go of the past and believe in something as fragile as love…

Barnes & Noble

Why am I waiting?  I ADORE Tiffany books.  Plus, did you see that cover? AND the story looks incredible! Can't wait.  AND it's a long wait - MAY 2015! SOOoooo long! *Sigh* It'll be worth it!

Kalliope lives with one purpose.

To inspire.

As an immortal muse, she doesn’t have any other choice. It’s part of how she was made. Musicians, artists, actors—they use her to advance their art, and she uses them to survive. She moves from one artist to the next, never staying long enough to get attached. But all she wants is a different life— a normal one. She’s spent thousands of years living lie after lie, and now she’s ready for something real.

Sweet, sexy, and steady, Wilder Bell feels more real than anything else in her long existence. And most importantly… he’s not an artist. He doesn’t want her for her ability. But she can’t turn off the way she influences people, not even to save a man she might love. Because in small doses, she can help make something beautiful, but her ability has just as much capacity to destroy as it does to create. The longer she stays, the more obsessed Wilder will become. It’s happened before, and it never turns out well for the mortal.

Her presence may inspire genius.

But it breeds madness, too.

*Releases December 15th, 2014!*

Pre-order exclusively through iBooks:


Why am I waiting? Because this is a book by Cora Carmack! Obviously. Also, New Adult Paranormal. I LOVE paranormal and I LOVE NA and I obviously LOVE Cora Carmack, so... see where I'm going with this? To get a little more specific about why I'm waiting, there's these lines from the synopsis:

Her presence may inspire genius.

But it breeds madness, too.

I want to read that. I want to see where that goes. 

And, in case you still didn't understand why I'm so effing EXCITED for this book, there's also this post on Cora's blog with the first two chapters. I only read the first few paragraphs (because I don't want to torture myself when I can't devour the entire thing!), but I'm already hooked. Seriously.

That's what we're waiting for this week! What do you think? What are you waiting on? Leave us a comment!


  1. These are both books I have not seen before. A Shattered Moment sounds like it might be sad. Inspired a little crazy. Great picks all round ladies.

    My WoW

  2. I am so excited for Inspire! I love that New Adult is really starting to branch into paranormal now!

  3. A Shattered Moment sounds like it will be an emotional ride!! The both sound great!!
