I got the chance to catch an early screening of the film at Warner Bros. this week with a group of fellow bloggers. And we had the special treat of attending a roundtable interview with author Jonathan Tropperhimself. Thank you to Warner Bros. Pictures for hosting…

I was so happy to hear that Chanel Cleeton was writing FRENCH KISSED, a third book in the International School series. This New Adult series is about a group of friends who attend International School in London and features romance, travel, and family drama. The first two books (I See London and London Falling) focus on Maggie’s college adventures. One of her friends, Fleur, is a breakout character who has lots of story potential on her own. And now she has her own book in French Kissed!

And voilà, the cover!

French Kissed

French Kissed synopsis:

On the surface Fleur Marceaux has it all—if only the façade matched reality. With one year left at the International School in London, Fleur’s struggling to graduate, her love life is a mess, and she can’t stop thinking about Max, her ex-boyfriend’s best friend. But all of that pales compared to the blackmailer determined to destroy her.

There’s a social hierarchy at the International School, and Max Tucker is outside the velvet ropes. After watching Fleur break his friend’s heart, Max knows to stay away from trouble—despite the crush he’s had on her since freshman year. But when they’re partnered on a project, Max learns there’s more to Fleur than meets the eye, and she just might be worth the wild ride.

The more time they spend together, the further Max falls. And when a kiss awakens a passion Fleur never imagined, she’s unable to resist Max, who she thought was wrong for her, but might be the only thing that’s right.

 But will he stand by her when her secrets are revealed? 

Très mignon, non? In the last book, London Falling, Fleur and Max have a love/hate relationship (more like hate/hate but you can tell they have feelings deep down.) Fleur has had a tough time of it and I’m glad to see she’s getting her HEA.

Look for French Kissed, the final book in the International School series, to go on sale December 1st! Add it on Goodreads

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is the Top Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More. I looked over my Goodreads shelves to see which authors I’ve only sampled once to find the authors I need to read more from.

Why haven’t I read more of your books, authors? In alphabetical order: 

1. Jennifer Brown – I liked Torn Away when I read it earlier this year, and think Hate List or Thousand Words look like my cup of tea.

2. Gillian Flynn – Of course I’ve read Gone Girl, but I want to catch up on Dark Places before the movie comes out.

3. Una LaMarcheLike No Other is such a fab book and I’m interested in catching up with Five Summers, and next year’s memoir Unabrow.

4. E. LockhartWe Were Liars was my first introduction to Lockhart and I want to read more to see what she’s all about. Maybe I’ll try The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks.

5. Patrick Ness – I’ve only read A Monster Calls from Ness, but have a feeling I’d like his Chaos Walking trilogy and More Than This.

6. Benjamin Alire SáenzAristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe was my first introduction to this author. But he’s written a ton of other books too! I’m eyeing Last Night I Sang to the Monster.

7. Leila Sales – I’ve only read This Song Will Save Your Life (check out the new paperback cover!) I have a copy of Past Perfect to read next.

8. John Corey WhaleyNoggin is so great, and I need to read Whaley’s big award winner Where Things Come Back.

9. Wendy Wunder – I liked The Probability of Miracles, but still haven’t read The Museum of Intangible Things. It sounds so different from Miracles and I guess I just haven’t been in the right mood to try it yet.

10. Gabrielle Zevin – I loved The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry and need to catch up on Zevin’s other books. I do have a copy of Elsewhere, so perhaps that will be next!

Do you recommend I prioritize any of these authors/books? What authors do you want to read more from?

This week has been a busy and hectic one so I haven’t had much of an online presence. Plus, it’s so freaking hot! I am ready for some of that brisk air, sweater-wearing, pumpkin spice latte weather I hear so much about. How was your week? Is it getting cooler where you are?

Here’s what’s new in my digital mailbox this week:

Beau, Lee, The Bomb & Me by Mary McKinley – A group of bullied teens go on a road trip and have all kinds of adventures.

Make My Wish Come True by Fiona Harper – Two sisters swap Christmases – Juliet goes to the Caribbean, and Gemma stays home to cook dinner. It sounds like that movie The Holiday!
