Congrats to all of the winners! Sadly I haven’t read any of the books above that won their categories, but, I did see some in the nomination lists that I read in previous months.
Earlier this week we received new photo stills from the premiere episodes that feature not just the main characters but also Jocelyn and Luke. The new Freeform series is set to premiere on January 12, 2016.
I only found one book that released this past week and that was Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Oblivion is a re-written version of Obsidian in Daemon’s point of view. I am so excited to read this book! Jennifer is already teasing us with pictures of Pepe Toth (Daemon Black cover model) reading the book.
Stay tuned for next weeks What’s Up Wednesday post.
