Lauren Barnholdt & Bree Despain

Today, I’m going to be showcasing some other authors. And those authors are Lauren Barnholdt and Bree Despain. Some of the books that Lauren has written are Two Way Street, Aces Up, One Night and Watch Me. My friend recently bought Two Way Street and it sounded really awesome, so I’m definitely getting that from her when she’s done!  Aces Up will be available on August 10! I love the cover and the summary sounds really awesome ! Here’s the summary (From Amazon) :  

Seventeen-year-old high school senior Shannon Card needs money. And lots of it. She’s been admitted to Wellesley, but her dad just lost his job, and somehow she has to come up with a year of tuition herself. But Shannon’s dream of making big bucks waitressing at the local casino, the Collosio, disappears faster than a gambler’s lucky streak. Her boss is a tyrant, her coworker is nuts, and her chances of balancing a tray full of drinks while wearing high-heeled shoes are slim to none. Worse, time is running out, and Shannon hasn’t made even half the money she’d hoped.
 
When Shannon receives a mysterious invitation to join Aces Up, a secret network of highly talented college poker players, at first she thinks No way. She has enough to worry about: keeping her job, winning the coveted math scholarship at school, and tutoring her secret crush, Max. But when Shannon musters up the nerve to kiss Max and he doesn’t react at all, the allure of Aces Up and its sexy eighteen-year-old leader, Cole, is suddenly too powerful to ignore.
 
Soon Shannon’s caught up in a web of lies and deceit that makes worrying about tuition money or a high school crush seem like kid stuff. Still, when the money’s this good, is the fear of getting caught reason enough to fold?

Bree is the author of the Dark Divine. If you’ve been following me, you’ll notice that I’ve already read and reviewed the book. I really liked the whole story idea, so I can’t wait for the sequel ! The Lost Saing is the title of the sequel, and it releases in December ! I can’t wait ! But in the mean time, I’m gonna pass along the trailer of the Dark Divine. If you haven’t read the book yet, I’m pretty sure the trailer will convince you to!

Awesome Video

This post is for all of those who have read Romeo and Juliet, or at least know the storyline. I swear, everyone today knows the story about these two star crossed lovers. I mean seriously, who hasn’t heard of them?! They meet, they fall in love…but wait! Their families hate eachother! Uh oh. Now that really sucks. But really, do you guys honestly believed that they should have killed themselves in the end? I know, it’s love and all…

Romeo and Juliet is a classic. But really, what makes it a classic? Is it because it’s just a story all teens can relate too? And honestly, teens are a major influence on things that become popular. Music? Us. Movies? Us. Guess how Twilight got big? You got it- us! So yeah, since R & J are teens, I guess it reaches to us more. Haha. And amazingly no one is really sick and tired of it yet. Just imagine what Shakespeare would say if he knew that his story was a hit.

Now though. Here’s the realy reason why I added this post. My friend showed me this video the other day. I only love few parodies, and I promise you, this one was probably one of the best I’ve seen. We all know Juliet commits suicide because she wakes up to see her love dead…But would she have done it if she had a sassy gay friend?

I promise you, it’s hysterical.
