This week's pick: NEVER EVER by Sara Saedi
Expected publication: June 21st, 2016 by Viking Books

Wylie Dalton didn’t believe in fairy tales or love at first sight. 

Then she met a real-life Peter Pan.

When Wylie encounters Phinn—confident, mature, and devastatingly handsome—at a party the night before her brother goes to juvie, she can’t believe how fast she falls for him. And that’s before he shows her how to fly.

Soon Wylie and her brothers find themselves whisked away to a mysterious tropical island off the coast of New York City where nobody ages beyond seventeen and life is a constant party. Wylie’s in heaven: now her brother won’t go to jail and she can escape her over-scheduled life with all its woes and responsibilities—permanently.

But the deeper Wylie falls for Phinn, the more she begins to discover has been kept from her and her brothers. Somebody on the island has been lying to her, but the truth can’t stay hidden forever.

My brand new portfolio!

Hello guys, the other day I happily launched my brand new portfolio, and now it's live here as well!

Although lots of the projects you see are related to authors, most of my loyal readers know I have designed headers, buttons and different banners for bloggers as well, something I actually still do and really enjoy. So it goes without saying that, if you are in need and you think I could be the right girl for the job, you should contact me right away with your request/s. I'll be more than happy to work with you :)

Hope you enjoy the tour and, while you're there, feel free to spread the word and share the love!
THANK YOU!!!!

Teaser Tuesday (#74)


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB @ Books and a Beat.
Wanna play along? Grab your current read, open to a random page and share two sentences from somewhere on that page, being careful NOT to include spoilers (you don't wanna ruin the book for others!). Also, remember to include title & author as well so, if readers like your teaser, they can add the book to their TBR lists!

This week's teaser: MISCONDUCT by Penelope Douglas

"On the rare occasion I have something I'd rather be doing instead of work, I have to bargain with myself," he explained, and locked his gaze on mine. "And I can't put my hands on you until I'm done with my work. That's the bargain today."

This week's pick: HOW TO DISAPPEAR by Ann Redisch Stampler
Expected publication: June 14th, 2016 by Simon Pulse

This electric cross-country thriller follows the game of cat and mouse between a girl on the run from a murder she witnessed—or committed?—and the boy who’s sent to kill her.

Nicolette Holland is the girl everyone likes. Up for adventure. Loyal to a fault. And she’s pretty sure she can get away with anything...until a young woman is brutally murdered in the woods near Nicolette’s house. Which is why she has to disappear.

Jack Manx has always been the stand-up guy with the killer last name. But straight A’s and athletic trophies can’t make people forget that his father was a hit man and his brother is doing time for armed assault. Just when Jack is about to graduate from his Las Vegas high school and head east for college, his brother pulls him into the family business with inescapable instructions: find this ruthless Nicolette Holland and get rid of her. Or else Jack and everyone he loves will pay the price.

As Nicolette and Jack race to outsmart each other, tensions—and attractions—run high. Told in alternating voices, this tightly plotted mystery and tense love story challenges our assumptions about right and wrong, guilt and innocence, truth and lies.

What do you think? And what are you waiting for?

Five years blogging!


Five years ago I started this blog to share my thoughts on a few reads and the love for books in general with others, but that's pretty common knowledge. What most of you don't know is that I also started blogging because at that time I didn't have a TV. WHAT? Shocking, isn't it? And yet, it's the truth. I lived without television for two years, but I was constantly entertained by my precious books! So, when I found a whole community was out there ready for me to join the awesome family, I was excited and scared at the same time. Why? Well, I think every blogger can tell you this journey is not at all easy peasy . . . Nevertheless, I don't regret my decision for a moment, I'm actually very glad I faced my fear and started Darkest Sins, and extremely thankful for the chance it gave me to meet fantastic bloggers (some of which became dear friends of mine), collaborate with publishers and authors, and help me start working in the book industry.

Life and work got in the way and it's hard to post with the frequency I used to, but you know I have something for you every week! And, after having reached such a huge achievement (yes, five years is a HUGE achievement for a blogger), you can say I don't plan on disappearing ;)

Having said that, cheers to my baby turning five today!!!!! And, of course, cheers to all of you readers of my blog, followers and supporters, who make my day every time you stop by and read my posts! Also, a special thanks to regular readers and commenters, you guys most definitely helped this blog grow and keep going, so here's the biggest of THANK YOU from a very grateful and happy blogger!
