    I love it when I stumble upon something that is awesomesauce.  I can give thanks to Jennifer Armentrout for this discovery, and you'll see why!  I'm sure we all have enough to read on our TBR list, but there is just never enough, is there?  Wattpad is an great place to find aspiring authors and tidbits from real authors as well!  So, let me tell you a bit about Wattpad.
     
     
     
    What is Wattpad?
     
    "Wattpad is a place to discover and share stories: a social platform that connects people through words. It is a community that spans borders, interests, languages. With Wattpad, anyone can read or write on any device: phone, tablet, or computer."
     
     
    What types of stories can I find?
     
    "With thousands of stories added each day, there’s always something you want to read. Want a story about a daughter smuggling her zombie mother to safety? We have that. Want a story about a time-traveling frog with super powers? We don’t have that, and we’d be happy to see you write it."
     
    How much does it cost?
     
    "Wattpad stories are free. Whether you’re online or off, use the devices you already own to carry an entire library wherever you go."
     
    What if I want to upload some of my writing?
     
    "Whether you’ve never written before, or published multiple books, Wattpad offers benefits for writers of all levels."
     
    How is this a social platform?
     
    "Join the conversation about the stories you read: message the writer and interact with other people who love the story as much as you.  Get notified the moment your favorite writer shares a new chapter."
     
     
    Wondering what type of genres they have?  Here is a quick list straight from the website for you to check out:
     
     
     
    Any other cool beans?
     
    Another lovely aspect is that the website is user-friendly and looks quite fresh and up to date.  I already have their app on my phone, and am about to download it on my I-pad.
     
     
     
     
     
    So who is on Wattpad?
     
    One great YA author that is on Wattpad - Jennifer Armentrout.  I was peaking at some of her books on Goodreads, and followed a link to this (which is posted for FREE on Wattpad):
     
     
     
     
     
    Title:  The Dead List
    Author:  Jennifer L. Armentrout
     
     
    From Jennifer L. Armentrout's blog posted on April 15, 2015:

    "The Dead List is a full standalone novel, coming in at roughly 93,000 words. It’s a Young Adult Romantic Suspense Yes. Lots of Romance. Sort of like Don’t Look Back, but a throwback to movies like Scream and the sort of campy fun ones. Think I Know What You Did Last Summer meets Scream. But with more romance.

    That’s all I’m going to say about the book. I think a blind read is something different. A little fun.

    There are no plans at this time to sell it or put it in print soon. I probably will one day, but the point of this is that it’s free for you guys.

    The Dead List is a raw novel, meaning it hasn’t been through copy editing. You’ll going to see typos and some strange things. You’re actually going to see what a book of mine looks like before copy editors get their hands on it. Hopefully there are no random ‘shits’ where there is supposed to be ‘shirts’.

    I will be posting a chapter or a couple of chapters at a time, as one does on Wattpad. Chapters will be added every Wednesday, Friday and then Sunday as long as I’m not traveling or, you know, acts of God clause.

    You can find me on Wattpad by going

    – You can download Wattpad on your phone or tablet
    – Or read on your computer"

    Also on Wattpad by her are series extras the Lux and Covenant Series as well as another new book:
     






     
     
     
     
     
    This is a 9 part story that has 33.3k reads already on Wattpad.  Here's the blurb:
     
    Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

    Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

    Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

    But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.
     
     
     
    What else did I put on my to-read list?
     
    There are tons of great aspiring authors on there!  Here are a few books that I added to my library:
     
     
     
     
    Blurb:
     
    Being secretly in love with the most popular boy is a common occurrence for a lot of teenage girls. For Kylie Hood, the most unnoticeable girl at Woods High School, dreaming of Trevor Grimm is a silly fantasy to help her escape her own cruel reality.
       
       
        So, when Trevor suddenly asks for Kylie's help with a school project, you'd think sparks would fly and they'd fall madly in love, right?
          
        Maybe...
       
        Maybe Trevor would have seen the girl who hides under a red hoodie is actually an innocent beauty - maybe he would have noticed the signs of abuse when she flinched - maybe he would have found her innocence endearing, and really looked at the girl others have ignored for the past four years.
           
        Well, he didn't.
       
        This isn't a story where the loner girl and popular boy fall in love after a school project unites them. Not even close...
       
        Because this is the story where the girl under the red hood meets the Big Bad Wolf.
      
        Though he refutes the alias his MMA fans have given him, Logan Grimm is known by everyone as: The Big Bad Wolf... He's also Trevor's older cousin. And he's also the man who notices the girl hiding under her hoodie.
       
        The question is: What does Logan Grimm want with Kylie Hood?
        Inspired by Little Red Riding Hood & various Grimm's Fairy Tales.
     
     
     

     
     

     
     
     
     
     
    Blurb:
     
    Ellie is one of those nerds who blocked herself away from people and studied non-stop ever since her mother passed away. During her senior year, she decided to make a bucket list to change the way her life is and soon she finds herself making a deal that she'd regret with the most popular and hot-tempered boy in the school.
     
     
     

     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
      


    Blurb
     
     
    Rumor has it that a new guy is joining our class this year. All the girls are going crazy, imagining all the case scenarios from cliché YA books: mysterious, rebel, bad boy, werewolf, fallen angel, even vampire! The worst part, I don’t even think they have read the books; they only watched the films. However, it doesn’t make much difference to me, it’s not like he is going to see me. No one sees me.
       
        Oh but don’t worry, I got used to this and I learnt to enjoy it. Believe me, being unseen has its perks. I’ll show you.
