Shelf Envy [2]: Brooke Moss {G!veaway Alert!}

Welcome to another edition of Shelf Envy! I’m actually killing two birds in one stone here, as I’m a part of The Carny Blog Tour. Today, romance author, Brooke Moss is with us to share just what kind of books she has on her shelves. This time, we’ve been given privy to her Nook. Let’s see what she has, shall we?
I can make out a couple of Tammara Webber’s books and what looks to be Beautiful Disaster by Jaime McGuire. But let’s ask her some burning questions about her E-book collection. 
J: What was the last book you’ve purchased?

BM: It’s called “Between The Lines” by Tammara Webber. I just finished her Upper YA/New Adult book, “Easy” and almost died. It was so good. Now I’m obsessed with reading all of her books. 

J: Name the top 5 books in your shelves.

BM: Wow…that’s a hard one. I can’t pick between all of my books. I never could. However, my current top 5 favorite books (all of which I own on my Nook) are:

1.    “Catch Of The Day” by Kristan Higgins
2.    “On The Island” by Tracey Garvis Graves
3.    “Delirium” by Lauren Oliver
4.    “Pandemonium” by Lauren Oliver and,
5.    “Conversations With The Fat Girl” by Liza Palmer.

J: What is the most controversial book on your shelf?

BM: Oh, wow….probably “Beautiful Disaster” by Jamie McGuire. This book ticked me off, and drove me crazy, and people all around the world are FREAKING out about how dysfunctional the couple in this story is…but it’s like literary crack. I couldn’t stop reading. I loved it. But I hated it. But I also loved it. I can’t explain…

J: Name one book in your shelf that you wished you wrote.

BM: Hands down: “On The Island” by Tracey Garvis Graves. It. Was. Amazing. Read this book now. Other than that, ANYTHING by Kristan Higgins.

           J: Which book would you recommend for me to read?

  BM: All of them! If you want something that you can’t stop reading, but might tick you off? Try “Beautiful Disaster”. If you want something that will leave you breathless and anxious and totally dying for the next installment, try the “Delirium” series by Lauren Oliver. If you want something that is good from cover to cover, with nary a complaint from me…try “Easy” by Tammara Webber. 

Thanks, Brooke! Ah yes, Beautiful Disaster. I read that book a month after its release and before all the drama and the hullabaloo that followed it. I loved it, regardless of all the dysfunctionality that some have been crying about. To each to their own, yeah? 

I definitely have to check out your top 5 picks! 

About Brooke:


“I write because if I don’t…my head will explode, and ruin the drapes.”


Brooke Moss is the name, contemporary romance, fantasy YA, and contemporary romance are the game.


Brooke writes complex, character-driven stories about kismet, reunited lovers, first love, and the kind of romance that we should all have the chance at finding. She prefers her stories laced with some humor just for fun, and enough drama to keep her readers flipping the pages, and begging for more!

When Brooke isn’t spinning tales, she spends her time drawing/cartooning, reading two books a week (ask her who her faves are), watching movies then comparing them to books, and, of course, wrangling four kids, one hubby she lovingly refers to as her “nerd”, and attempting to conquer the Mount Everest of laundry that is the bane of her existence.

    5 lines?
    My answer is going to be kind of sad.
    I don't remember.
    I do remember my first kiss with my love.
    It was outside my house. 😉

  • Beautiful Disaster is so so good! I love this post Joy!

  • I keep hearing great things about On the Island, I'll have to give it a chance sooner rather than later. My co-blogger Lisa is reading Easy now and liking it as far as I know. The Delirium series never quite sit well with me, but I can totally understand why people like it. I'm picky like that.
    Great post, ladies.

  • Awesome post Joy and Brooke! I love having a nosey around readers shelves! Your colllection actually reminded me I still need to read Easy and On the Island, there's so much praise going around for these two, that I can't wait to check them out! Thanks for sharing your collection with us Brooke! 🙂
