Special Announcement from Cora Carmack!

ALL CLOSED OFF Coming 2016

ALL CLOSED OFF, Book 4 in the Rusk University Series, is coming!!!

Check out this message from Cora!

*WARNING: This letter contains spoilers for All Broke Down. If you haven’t yet read that book, read at your own peril. SECOND WARNING: this letter talks about fictional characters as if they are real people. Sorry I’m not sorry. THIRD WARNING: The letter below broaches a serious topic that could be a trigger for some people*

Hello beloved readers!

The first person who read one of my Rusk University books was my older sister. I gave her All Lined Up when I finished, and her first question was “Are Ryan and Stella going to be together?”

At the time, I told her no. I had plans for both of them that included their own storylines. I thought they were too much alike. They’d make great friends. They might even hook-up, but in the end… I couldn’t envision anything serious for them. So I actually rewrote some of their scenes trying to make that aspect of their connection more obvious. And still, when All Lined Up released, amidst the chatter about sweet Carson and sassy Dallas, I had people asking if Stella and Ryan were next. I denied it again (and again and again).

But sometimes in writing, the stars align and a character will become bigger and more real than you could have possibly imagined. It’s a wonderful experience, but in Stella’s case it was also incredibly heartbreaking. While I was writing All Broke Down, the news was inundated with information about the Steubenville rape trial and other tragedies and injustices like it. Tragedies where women have been violated first by an attacker, then by judgmental and hateful people, and finally by a justice system that repeatedly fails survivors of sexual assault. Having grown up in Texas, where too often football stars are treated like gods and can get away with just about anything, it hit particularly close to home. And since All Broke Down featured a passionate activist heroine, I felt compelled to reference this chronic dark underbelly of elite sports.

I can remember vividly sitting on my couch, brainstorming how I would incorporate such an event into the book. I had thought the assault would happen to an unknown character, and maybe I would focus on the way it divided the team and the school and the town. But like I said… Sometimes a character will become bigger and more human than I anticipated. And it sounds crazy, but in my mind, I felt Stella push her way forward and say, “Mine. This is my story.” I immediately began to cry. Sob, really. Because I loved her as a character. She was hilarious and strong and didn’t take crap from anyone. She was everything I always hope to be. And I didn’t want her to go through that. Even as I cried, my brain began to tell me that it made sense. Stella was vibrant and enjoyed a wild party. She was not afraid of her sexuality, and she had no problem with casual sex. She was the kind of girl that probably had a reputation. The kind of girl who could be heinously and violently taken advantage of, and people would STILL blame her. Because she was in the wrong place, wearing the wrong clothes, behaving in the wrong way. But just because it COULD happen to her, didn’t mean I wanted it to. But once again, Stella was there in my head saying, “Someone needs to tell this story. And I’m strong enough to do it. Let me.” And when Stella chose her story, she also chose the man I’d been adamant wasn’t right for her. Because as it turns out… Those two characters who I thought were too alike aren’t so alike anymore. And Stella needs Ryan to help her hold on to that vibrant and strong girl she was before.

So I let go of all the plans I had for her, and allowed her to tell me her story, which is about more than just sexual assault. It’s about the aftermath. Depression. Shame. Guilt. Anger. Injustice. Victim-blaming. Slut-shaming. It’s about the way that kind of event can change everything– how you relate to people, how you think, how you dream, how you love. It’s about the way the rest of the world moves on to the next big tragedy, and you’re still left holding the broken pieces of who you used to be, with no idea how to put them together again or even if you want to. It will be the most difficult story I ever tell. And the most important. Because it’s a story that belongs not just to Stella, but to millions of people around the world. It’s a story that belongs to a new person every 107 seconds*. And that’s just in the United States. Think about that for a moment. 107 seconds. Stella’s story won’t be any easier to read than it will be to write. But I hope you’ll help me drag this story into the light.

So now I’ll step off my soapbox and just tell you about the book…



ALL CLOSED OFF:

Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.

But none of that matters because she’s just fine.

For Ryan Blake, Stella was always that girl. Vibrant and hilarious and beautiful. He wanted her as his best friend. His more than friends. His everything and anything that she would give him. Which these days is a whole lot of nothing. She gets angry when he’s there. Angry when he’s not there. Angry when he tries to talk and when he doesn’t.

When Stella devises an unconventional art project for one of her classes all about exploring intimacy—between both friends and strangers—Ryan finds himself stepping in as guinea pig after one of her subjects bails. What was supposed to be an objective and artistic look at emotion and secrets and sex suddenly becomes much more personal. When he hits it off with another girl from the project, Stella will have to decide if she’s willing to do more than make art about intimacy. To keep him, she’ll have to open up and let herself be the one thing she swore she’d never be again.

Vulnerable.

*****

ALL CLOSED OFF will be releasing sometime in early 2016. I don’t have a date yet for several reasons. The first and most important, is that I want to do this story justice. And as such, I have no intentions of rushing the process. Secondly, I’ll be returning to indie publishing for the remainder of the Rusk series. As you can probably tell, this story means a great deal to me. And by having the ultimate control over everything from timing to editing to price, I’ll be able to ensure that I’m able to create exactly the story I envision. Unfortunately, that means you won’t be seeing the paperback of ALL CLOSED OFF on the shelves in most stores. Nor is it currently available for pre-order. But I hope you’ll add the book on goodreads, follow me on social media, and/or join my newsletter. I promise to shout it all over the place when I have a set release date or pre-order links.

Thank you for listening as I told you the evolution of Stella’s story. When it’s finished, I hope you will feel as passionately about it as I do.

All my best,

Cora Carmack

And an opportunity to add your voice to Stella’s…

Stella’s experience is only one story of many. She was with someone she trusted when it happened, and the only memories she has are pieced together from her own blurred recollections and the things people have told her. Not everyone’s experience with sexual assault is the same. Each person reacts, copes, and overcomes differently. And while this book is about one specific character’s journey, I would like to tell as many sides of this story as possible. As Stella grapples with her thoughts and emotions she’ll be searching for advice, for comfort, for a place where people understand her and can identify with what she’s experiencing. There will be room for truth within the fiction, and if you’d like that truth to be yours, this is your chance.

If you have a story like Stella’s, and you want your voice to be heard….

If there’s something you wish more people understood about what you’ve gone through….

If there’s something you’d like to tell people struggling with a story like yours…

I’d like to give you the opportunity to add your voice to Stella’s. Use the hashtag #WhenItHappened and let your voice be heard on your own by posting on your own social media, or if you’d rather I share your words fill out this google document and tell me your story. You can fill out this form anonymously or not. I’d like to begin this discussion now because April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. But my hope is to include as many stories as possible within the book itself.

So many have stories of #WhenItHappened. Your voice and your story deserve to be heard. I’m listening.

Book Review: Everything by Melissa Pearl

Everything (A Songbird novel, Book 3) by Melissa Pearl
Release Day Blitz
April 23, 2015

Hey everyone!

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things here at PopCrunchBoom Books. I have a lot of exciting adventures ahead of me (including BEA 2015! Which I’m equally excited for and terrified of for some reason lol). I also have a stack of books I’m reading through, so look forward to some reviews popping up like crazy over here.

On that note, I was given the opportunity to participate in the Release Day Blitz for Melissa Pearl’s Songbird #3, Everything. *I was given a free eBook ARC of this novel by Mark My Words Book Publicity in exchange for an honesty review. This does not influence my thoughts or opinions on the story.* See my review below and learn more about this awesome series :) If you’re quick on time, check out my Need to Know section below :)

save1

Everything by Melissa Pearl is a New Adult (17+) novel that follows the story of Jody and Leo. Jody is a young 20-year-old mother struggling to find her way again after her unplanned pregnancy and dropping out of college. She had her eyes set on Broadway and becoming a star on stage, but along the way fell in love with her teacher who dropped her once she told him she was pregnant. Now Jody is living at home raising her young daughter Angel while struggling to deal with her heartbreak as well as the cold, judging vibes she now gets from her father. On the other hand, Leo is a 27-year-old Aussie who just ended his marriage. He had always been the golden child and willing to please his family. Now he is lost and searching for more on his own terms. When his older brother mentions starting over in American and reaching for his Broadway dreams, Leo boards a plane to LA to make it happen. Using his connection–his Uncle–Leo lands a job as a building manager while writing his musical for Broadway. Then life throws another curve-ball–Leo meets Jody and soon finds himself battling over what his real “everything dream” is…”because, sometimes, everything you want is not everything you need” (book synopsis).

I’ve really enjoyed Pearl’s Songbird series so far. Music is another passion of mine that I could not live without and I love seeing how much music plays a role in these stories. I took Pearl’s advice and listened to the playlist as I read the novel this time and it really added something to my experience reading Everything. The novel mentions A LOT of songs — some I was familiar with and others that I wasn’t. Having the Spotify playlist alongside the novel was super helpful! It allowed me to get a better handle on the character and also to not push me out of the story because I did not get the reference. Additionally, it allowed me to experience two of my favorite things at the same time: music and books/reading! I appreciate that Pearl took the time to put this together for her readers.

Moving onto the characters, I felt that something was missing from them both throughout the novel. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed both Jody and Leo as well as their journey together, but something in the end just seemed like it was missing. I think for Jody, I wanted to see more of her determination. She is a young mother, so I understand that she would be more immature than most characters, but she also has an older sister and a great best friend that would amplify her maturity and strength. Both Ella and M organ are strong influences on Jody and strong characters in themselves. I just wanted to see more of that strength in Jody. With that being said, I did admire Jody’s decision to break out on her own and try to make it on her own. That decision does take strength, I just wanted to see more.

With Leo, I felt like he came off a little too perfect. There was a minor struggle within him between chasing Broadway and chasing Jody, but I felt as if we didn’t see more into him emotionally. He wasn’t very cautious in falling for Jody at all like I thought he might be after his last relationship. Otherwise I really enjoyed Leo. He was driven, but also extremely caring and always seemed to be in a positive mood. I also loved the way he stepped up for Jody and supported her and protected her when the situation called for it. He was such a great example of a good guy. I wish I could hear his voice in real life — I think the accent would having me swooning even more so!

Overall, this novel was such a cute read. Seeing both the characters come together over their shared love of music and Broadway was such a nice world to escape into. I only wished that the story didn’t seem to “perfect” at times. I feel like everything kind of fell into place with no real struggle on either’s part. In the end, though sometimes that just the kind of story you need–sweet and with a happy ending. Plus, the chemistry between the characters was great. It wasn’t an overdone-I want to rip your cloths off–style, which I found really fit this couple. It was more of a subtle chemistry that was sweet and seemed to come off as a “first love” vibe. However, there were sexy times in the book too–so no worries on that front ;)  If you’re looking for a quick read to fall in love with, then definitely pick up this novel!

My Rating:

3.5 stars rating

save2

  • Everything follows single, young mom Jody and Aussie-born Leo as they find their true dreams and love through music and each other.
  • Music plays a major role in this novel. Multiple songs are referenced throughout the novel and Pearl does a great job of making the playlist available to the readers–making the experience reading the novel more involved.
  • Both Jody and Leo are trying to overcome their past and find their own way. Both characters were enjoyable, but I had a nagging feeling throughout that something was missing from these character. I wanted to see more from them personality-wise.
  • Sometimes the story came off as too “perfect” in that things seem to fall in place too easily for the characters. However, sometimes you need this kind of sweet, happy-ending type of story.
  • Overall, I enjoyed this novel! It was heartwarming and made me smile at the end. I gave it 3.5 stars since I felt something was missing in the characters. In the end, I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a quick, happy read with fun music references and a great couple dynamic. (This is a New Adult novel for ages 17+).

I’M BACK!!!!!!! And the Reasons for Why I Was MIA.

Good Morning Beauties!

Wow, so April happened. It happened fast, too! I had such high hopes to return to blogging in March (I planned out the whole month full of posts), but sadly I didn’t post one thing during the entire month :(

My Bad GIF

However, it’s all with good reasons I promise!

I FINALLY finished applying to Graduate School and GUESS WHAT?! I GOT IN!  I’m so beyond excited and so thankful that I was given this opportunity. I will be attending my number 1 choice school in Boston to pursue a Dual Degree in Children’s Literature (MA) and Library and Information Science (MS). I can’t believe it!

Surprise GIF
So I’m officially a Librarian-in-Training!! 

Recently, I’ve done A LOT of thinking about my future and where I saw myself in the time to come. I have been torn so long with what I really want to do with my life. I want to do so many things, but nothing really seemed to work out or call to me extremely strongly. I felt like I could fall into anything and be okay with it. I seem to adapt like that a lot. But then there was this kind of “light bulb” moment that happened in December of 2013. I was currently working two jobs, one of which was at Barnes and Noble. I was a cashier at the time and we were hosting a book fair for an elementary school in the area. The school rep/moderator asked me and a co-worker to watch her young daughter real quick while she unloaded her car. So I sat down with the daughter and read with her one of the Pete the Cat books we had behind the counter and I just knew–this is what I wanted to do. I wanted to share my love of reading with others; encourage young/beginner readers; and help grow literacy and the love of books/reading. I wanted to become a Librarian — the keepers and sharers of knowledge and adventure.

lightbulb moment

Of course, even though I had this somewhat “inspired” moment that did not mean I acted on it right away or even realized what it was at first. It took another year of working in Marketing and doing some more “soul searching” to recognize that I had been holding on to that moment for a while. I kept coming back to it and remembering how sure I had felt when the idea of being a librarian entered my mind. By the time 2015 hit, I decided that this year was going to be focused on balance and risk–balance of my mind, body and spirit while taking risks to achieve this and my overall happiness.

My first risk was telling my parents that I wanted to apply to Grad School or move to NYC to pursue getting a job there in the summer (in which I would have to quit my full-time job to do either). The second risk was telling my friends (who wanted to move into a house together) that I was hoping to pursue these options and might not be able to move-in with them in the Fall of 2015. My final risk was moving forward and actually applying to Grad School. It took me the whole month of February to gather the materials and apply by the March 1 deadline.

Somehow I did it. I applied–reached outside of my box and the path of uncertainty that felt safest to continue on and I made a change. I made a choice and I took a risk. Now I couldn’t be more happy or excited!

Happy!

I had tons of support along the way and I am so thankful for that!! I know there are going to be hard times along this journey, but I’m going to do my best to get through them. Doubt has already creeped into my mind about this decision, but I won’t let the fear disguised as doubt rule my decision on this. I know that this is what I want to do. If I don’t get there right away, I’m okay with that. As long as I keep pursuing my ultimate goal and trying to make it happen, I’ll be happy :)

Thank for reading this crazy long reason as to why I haven’t been blogging the past month or two. i’ve been caught up in a lot of emotions and stress over this decision and my choice to pursue Grad School and this new career path. I’m thankful to all of you who continued to peak in on my blog, read my posts, follow me on Insta or Twitter or Bloglovin’. You are all AMAZING!! And I hope you all realize how much appreciate your support as well! :)

Now with this whole story said, I do want to try harder at remaining consistent with my postings. I have to get back on to a schedule and stick to it! Book Blogging is one of my passions, so I need to give it the time it deserves. I know there will be days and even weeks that I don’t want to step near the computer or even pick up a book (*DON’T LOOK, I didn’t just say that…), but I’m going to do my best to push through because in the end, this blog is what I love. Reading is what I love and sharing these books and thoughts with you is something I cherish having the ability to do each day.

So yeah: Read More! Blog More! Be You More! — that about sums up this post :)

Hugs and Love to You All!!

EVERY LAST BREATH Synopsis:

Some loves will last ’til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…

“Armentrout is a major talent…I just can’t stop reading!”

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter

White Hot Kiss - New Cover

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** BAM ** iBooks ** IndieBound ** Kobo ** Walmart

WHITE HOT KISS synopsis:

One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Stone Cold Touch - New Cover

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iBooks ** IndieBound ** Kobo ** BAM

STONE COLD TOUCH Synopsis:

Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

“Constantly entertaining…the narrative sizzles with as much tension as romance.”

Kirkus Reviews on White Hot Kiss

And the Prequel Novella, BITTER SWEET LOVE…

Bitter Sweet Love - New Cover

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iBooks ** BAM ** Kobo

BITTER SWEET LOVE Synopsis:

In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series The Dark Elements, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining the balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again…

“With her signature flare for combining humor, romance and action, Armentrout weaves a fast-paced read that will have readers’ hearts racing in more ways than one. Like Armentrout’s previous heroines, Jasmine is fun and full of attitude, while Dez is as snarky as he is sexy. This is a must read for new and old fans alike!” –RT Book Reviews

BANNER - 2015 LOVEATHON (1)

Hey everyone!

Trying to catch up on the #LoveAThon posts today. I’m probably only going to be able to do this one challenge today and hopefully all of them tomorrow. Since I won’t really be near a computer the rest of today, I’m just going to focus on comment and tweet lovin’ for the rest of today! Also, just be warned, the poem below is totally awful, I kind of just grabbed books that were near me at the time. ;) I’ll try harder, later maybe? Anyway, I can’t wait to see what other more creative people came up with!

Without further adieu:
