Honored to scream for IN HONOR

I am thrilled to be raving for the latest release by Jessi Kirby, IN HONOR. But first, check out what the other Bookanistas are up to - and yes, I know, summer has clearly come early as there are not many reviews this week:

On to my Bookanista Shout out for IN HONOR by fellow Bookanista, Jessi Kirby:


Release Date: 5/08/2012


Basic Blurb: (from Amazon)
Honor receives her brother’s last letter from Iraq three days after learning that he died, and opens it the day his fellow Marines lay the flag over his casket. Its contents are a complete shock: concert tickets to see Kyra Kelly, her favorite pop star and Finn's celebrity crush. In his letter, he jokingly charged Honor with the task of telling Kyra Kelly that he was in love with her.
Grief-stricken and determined to grant Finn's last request, she rushes to leave immediately. But she only gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn's best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn't seen him in ages, thanks to a falling out between the two guys, but Rusty is much the same as Honor remembers him: arrogant, stubborn. . . and ruggedly good looking. Neither one is what the other would ever look for in a road trip partner, but the two of them set off together, on a voyage that makes sense only because it doesn’t. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn--but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?
Why I liked it: 
Wow...there is so much to say about this book. Now, those of you who read my reviews KNOW that I LOVE Jessi's writing style. She has an almost lyrical quality to her writing that takes familiar themes, and even familiar stories and makes them somehow new and fresh. This is true with IN HONOR. In this story we have familiar themes of love and loss, discovery and grief. It is a profound story that left me smiling, laughing, loving and crying. Truly an engaging and fantastic read.


And tell me, what are you reading these days?

    Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

    Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

    In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

    In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

    I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
