Far from Over by April Lindner

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

I guess I'm a masochist because even though I only gave 2 stars to Love, Lucy (the book this novella is a companion of), I still got around to buy and read this novella, HOPING AND WISHING THAT I'LL LOVE IT. Why do I do this to myself?

Title: Far from Over
Author: April Lindner
Publisher: Poppy
Date of Publication: April 12, 2016
Source: purchased (Kindle)

A captivating digital original companion novella to April Lindner's Love, Lucy.

Jesse Palladino is used to moving on. As a street musician backpacking through Europe, he’s never in one place for long. Which is why it’s so surprising he can’t seem to move on from Lucy, the girl he fell for in Florence. They parted ways when Lucy returned home to start college, but every crowded piazza and winding cobblestone street reminds Jesse of the time they spent together. Now staying with a friend in Naples, he can’t help wondering if it’s time to pack up and move on again. But just when his mind is made up, something—or someone—might give him a reason to stay.

See you at the #NoLoveAllowed by Kate Evangelista Book Launch!

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Join Filipino young adult novelist Kate Evangelista (@KateEvangelista) for the launch of her latest book ‘No Love Allowed’ on April 30, 2016 at 2 p.m. in National Book Store, Glorietta 1. Registration starts at 12 p.m.


Caleb desperately needs a new fake girlfriend. Either he attends a series of parties with a pretty girl on his arm to schmooze for his father's law firm, or he gets shipped off to Yale to start a future he's not ready for and isn't sure he wants. And sadly the last unattached girl in his social circle has just made the grievous mistake of falling in love with him.

Fortunately, Didi, the waitress at the Country Club — who just lost her job due to Caleb's too-public breakup — is open to new experiences (and art supplies are expensive!). It's the perfect setup for them both. Caleb has only one rule for the arrangement: Didi mustn't fall in love with him.


When Kate Evangelista was told she had a knack for writing stories, she did the next best thing: entered medical school. After realizing she wasn't going to be the next Doogie Howser, M.D., Kate wandered into the Literature department of her university and never looked back. Today, she is a graduate of De La Salle University - Manila with an Bachelor of Arts in Literature. She taught high school English for three years and was an essay consultant for two. Currently she writes full time and is based in the Philippines. To learn more about Kate, please visit her website at or follow her on Twitter @KateEvangelista.

Title: You Before Anyone Else
Authors: Julie Cross and Mark Perini
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Date of Publication: August 1, 2016

Model Finley needs someone to help her shed her "good girl" persona, so she'll try Eddie on for size.

New York City model Finley is fed up with hearing the same feedback at castings: she needs to take some serious action to wipe the "good girl" stamp from her resume if she wants to launch to stardom.

Enter Eddie Wells. He's shallow, predictable…and just as lost as Finley feels. Deep down, Finley is drawn to Eddie's bravado, his intensity. Except Eddie is hiding something. A big something. And when it surfaces, both loving and leaving Finley will become so much harder.
