TELL ME TUESDAY is a feature that oozed from my post Twitter party fried brains. It is a floating feature (depending on your reading style), where you tell us what you are reading now, and why, and what you will be reading in the future from your tbr pile, and why. I am oh so curious why people read what they read. So tell me!

RELEASE DAY BOOK BLITZ: LIGHT THE WAY By Joe Kipling GIVEAWAY

Welcome to the release day blitz for book two in The Union Trilogy. Happy book birthday LIGHT THE WAY! Keep reading for a fab GIVEAWAY!
With a surname like Kipling, Joe's future as a writer might have been predetermined at birth. . . well at least it assured her a good place on the bookshelves. An avid traveller she spent many years backpacking around the world and has by pure luck managed to avoid catastrophe, although she has been known to miss a flight or two.
She now lives in West Yorkshire and if she's not at home writing she’ll be found hiking in the hills around her house with her dog Rosie.
Joe's debut novel, BLINDED BY THE LIGHT, was published by Cillian Press in 2013. Light the Way is her follow up novel and the second book in THE UNION TRILOGY.
Having escaped the boundary and the tyranny of the Neighborhood and now under the protection of the Union, MaryAnn Hunter is slowly re-building her life as a fugitive on the Outside.
When a friend asks for help MaryAnn finds herself on a dangerous rescue mission that takes her on a terrifying journey and back into the desperate clutches of the Director and the Light.
MaryAnn faces a fight for survival against insurmountable odds - but is it a fight she is willing to win at any cost?
Light the Way is the second book in The Union Trilogy.
Ebook release coming soon!
AUTHOR FUN FACTS

1. My rainy day film is Flash Gordon released in 1980. It's also the inspiration behind the name for Peter's dog.

2. I hate wigs. I would rather hold a tarantula in my hand than touch a wig.

3. Sometimes I talk to my dog Rosie and when she answers back she sounds like Dobby.

4. I'm addicted to Pepsi Max and I drink it for breakfast.

5. I was seven when I went to the cinema with my dad and sister to see Star Wars: A New Hope. It's been my favourite film ever since, and yes, I am insanely excited about the new release.

6. I am the world's worst traveler: trains, planes, automobiles... it doesn't matter, they're always delayed.

7. I love, love, love the Ramones. Sheena is a Punk Rocker is my favourite song.
8. I get annoyed by people who wear Ramones t-shirts, and when I ask them to name their favourite song, they don't know who the band is. They just think the t-shirt is cool... please don't do it.

9. I am distantly related to Rudyard Kipling. My sister can explain it. I'm no good with family trees.
10. Afternoon tea is my favourite meal of the day... especially if it involves vintage china.

The Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-thon really burned me out and I only got one and a half books read for the Anti-Bullying Read-a-thon. It was still a big plus because I found out about books that are about bullying that I had no idea were. A MONSTER CALLS, SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIEN AGENDA, and MORE HAPPY THAN NOT; all three of which I already had. I was also recommended a book called SENTIMENTAL BULLS#*T, which I am loving. I haven't run into any bullying yet, but the writing is wonderful. So anyway, I am trying to finish up A Monster Calls in print and the Sentimental Bulls#*t ebook right now. I have been alternating back and forth according to my mood. 
This ebook is still only 99¢.
And the Simon Vs. ebook is still $1.99!
♦♦♦♦♦♦♦
And my next read is...
I swore when I was making up my eARC schedule this book was supposed to pub next Tuesday, but it is today, so I am shelving A Monster Calls and getting on this one right away. I just found out on Twitter it has a FREE original soundtrack, HERE. I listened to the first two tracks and the music is magical!
What are you reading? Tell me!
