Between the covers book club and news

Hello, lovely ladies 🙂

Day 5

Squeeeee…. Only five days to go until we see the official trailer, and in the mean time, EL James posted a trailer teaser on Instagram!

Check it out:

This week I read:

Tempted By Trouble by Susan Arden was cute; a poolside read.

Rusty Nailed by Alice Clayton, book two in the Cocktail series was funny and sexy. I loved it, a great read!

Currently I’m reading:


Tamed by Emma Chase, book three in the Tangled series. I’m loving the sexy, romantic comedy streak I’m on at the moment. Lighthearted and fun.

On My shelf I have:


One Night Promised by Jodie Ellen Malpas. I CANNOT wait to get to this one, the new book by the fabulous author who brought us Jesse Ward from the This Man series 😉

Is it just me or do many of our favorite authors seem to release their books in the middle of the year, at the same time, so we’re suddenly swamped in good reads waiting for us? You’d think they would space it out over the year 😛 And we still have Katy Evans to look forward to!  Yay! 🙂

Thanks to Kereny’s hard work I’ve posted chapter 31 of the Spanish version of Meander.


So the countdown is on, ladies. I have my fingers crossed but I’m still nervous.  I think maybe our expectations are too high to ever be met, but I live in hope 😉

I hope you have a stunning weekend. Don’t forget to share your best reads with us!

Monique xx

    Hi Monique 1st the trailer, I spoke to my son about the trailer we seen in the cinema, he says it was a trailer for the second series of The Fall, a local series set in Belfast that Jamie Doran stars in but it had mentioned FSOG in it & showed him in a suit! No wonder it didn’t impress me! so apologies for that obviously my mind was elsewhere!
    Finally finished Pleasure Extraordinaire another cute poolside read but complete sex hangover after that just too much and no real storyline.
    Looking forward to the reviews on One Night Promised before I read it. I have lots to read, still trying to read books I’ve had for a while but nothing that is getting me excited 🙂
    Have a good week x

      Hello Katherine 😉 That’s such a relief! Phew! I was getting very worried there 😛 I just started One night Promised so I’m super excited. Have you read the Tangled series by Emma Chase? Funny and sexy and mostly written from the cocky guy’s POV. Very good and perfect for the sex hangover you’re suffering from. What did you think of the little trailer teaser? Thanks for sharing, Katherine 🙂

        Hi Monique yes i read tangled but only one book didn’t know it was a series must check that out.
        Im really not impressed with the teaser at all, I just don’t think Jamie & especially Dakota are the right people for the job and I’d put money on it that the film will be crap! But after 3 days of rain the sun is shining & we’ve to have a sunny week so whooohooo 🙂 x

          Hey Katherine 🙂 Yes, book 2 is called Twisted. A great read. Book 3 is from Mathew’s POV, his friend and Deloris’s story. I don’t know what to hope for where the movie is concerned. It’s going to be very hard to keep us happy. Let’s hope…. Enjoy the sunshine! 😉

    • Monique Lain says:

      Hey Kereny 🙂 Yes, it’s exciting and nerve wrecking all at once! LOL! I wonder if the trailer will also appear on Youtube so we can watch it over and over again. Thanks for the share and the latest chapter 😉 Have a good week!

    I don’t have any doubt the trailer will be on youtube within minutes of it airing! I loved the teaser to the trailer! Smart marketing, gives me some real hope that they’ve done well with the movie.
    Currently reading book 3 of FSOG. I wanted to get in one last read with the characters in my mind, before the trailer and movie have their influence. May even do another read before valentines day! 😉
    Very exciting! Haven’t decided what will be my next read yet.

    The teaser to the trailer! Oh my! My heart can’t stand the wait! I have my hopes so high for this movie. I think they are doing an excellent job so far with hyping up the movie. Less is more and they are masters of that philosophy when it comes to anything FSOG. The trailer teaser was great…now I need “more”!
    As for book club, I am interested in the Jodi Ellen Malpas book. LOVE Jesse and Ava about as much as Christian and Ana…worth a try.


    • Monique Lain says:

      Yes, I’m so with you. I’m quietly optimistic. I just hope they stick to the story! That’s what we want to see and what we fell in love with!
      I LOVE Jodi Ellen Malpas. I started the new book last night… Fingers crossed. Jesse Ward is one of my all time fav book boyfriends! 😉
