Hi Everyone!

It's the end of January already...wow this month went by fast.

We finally got snow!!! Playing cards with my friends on Sunday and Saturday will be spent shopping and doing laundry. Also, I need to catch up on the shows I recorded this past week.

I read a couple of books this week, I just finished the newest Shannon Stacey book -- All He Ever Dreamed -- got to love the Kowalski's family and before that The Reluctant Countess by Wendy Vella -- which I enjoyed. I have no idea what I'm going to read next, maybe Your Wicked Heart by Meredith Duran.

So what are you doing this weekend? What are you reading!

Have a good one!

We have ice in KY but no snow so far. Much of the state is shut down.

I'm going to start Iced by Karen Marie Moning.

Happy weekend girls! I finished reading Echoes at Dawn by Maya Banks on Wednesday. Last night I took a break, I had read all 5 of the first KGI books in a row! :shock: I got caught up on my magazine reading last night and I'm reading to move on today to Softly at Sunrise, then will follow up this weekend with Shades of Gray, the most current book in the series.

Not sure why went she paranormal on these last 2 books...but they were still good. I'm hoping she'll go back to writing plain old romantic suspense in the next books, like books 1-3 were.

Not much else for me this weekend. I will probably watch the Pro Bowl Sunday night. I think Saturday night my husband and I are going to go to the Auto Show. I'm planning to buy a new car either this year, or early next year so we want to start looking.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Glad to see this cold week come to an end! Monday night I had an allergic reaction to something I ate, throat started to swell shut so I had my first - and hopefully last - ambulance ride. Scary experience, but on the bright side I am here to talk about it! It was -9 when they sprung me from the hospital in the wee hours of the morning. Rude awakening, going from a nice warm bed to that.

I am reading Maya Banks Shades of Gray, and enjoying it. This is a great series. I have so many new books to read I am seriously wondering why I keep pre-orderiing books! My TBR pile has become a run away train!

Hoping for a quiet weekend. My only plans are to go online tomorrow morning and hopefully get tickets for Bob Seger, who is coming here in March. I want to see my all time favorite rock and roller one more time!

Glad you're okay! Let me know how you like Shades of Gray. I'm reading it too this weekend.

I had a good week of reading. Finished "A Wanted Man" by Lee Child. Still haven't seen the Jack Reacher movie because I cannot envision Tom Cruise in the lead role.

Thanks to Teri P (?) I checked out Gennita Low's website and found that I was way behind in her books. I was a faithful fan until I waited so long for "Virtually His" - I though she had quite writing - read "Tempting Trouble" this week and loved it. Plan to find "Virtually Her" somewhere in my house and read it and get "His" sometime soon.

I have started the new Cindy Gerard book, "Killing Time" so far so good.

I agree with Kylemac on Maya Banks - loved her KGI series but not sure "why she went paranormal on these last 2 books" as that is somewhat outside my comfort zone for reading. I downloaded "Shades of Grey" so I'll probably start it after the Gerard book.

Terri P, what a scare. Hope you are feeling better.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Dani

Hi everyone. Hope you all are staying warm. I don't go out unless I have to!
This is a sad weekend for me. One of my dear friends died last weekend and her daughter is having a Memorial Luncheon for her here in Pittsburgh. She was a good woman. If she didn't have something good to say about someone... she kept it to herself. In all the years I have known her, I don't remember her saying anything negative about someone. If someone started talking about someone, she would not participate... just shrug her shoulders. As you can see, this is a trait that I admired in her. She was also a reader like us...TBR piles everywhere.
Hey Dani.... Tom Cruise was Jack Reacher....suprised the heck out of me, but now when I read Lee Child....I will see Tom as JR. Wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen the movie.

Other than that, I am going to stay in and read and finish up Chasing Darkness by Robert Crias and maybe start 61 Hours for another book club.

Have a great weekend everyone and happy reading.

Hello Ladies, we had a forecast of ice and sleet here, but it never came. Boy, are we glad!

Reading wise I am in a major slump. It took me three weeks to read A NOTORIOUS COUNTESS CONFESSES By Julie Anne Long. And I love her books.

I looked back in my journal and I only bought one book in the month of Dec. Usually, I buy three or four books a month.

Everyone stay warm and happy reading to all!

Still reading Shadow Woman by Linda Howard, although I'm really enjoying it. My weekend will be spent online -- I signed up for a 2 week free membership with Ancestry.com and I'm having lots of fun trying to find people. Hopefully, I'll get up occasionally so my butt doesn't start turning square LOL.

Paulette, first of all one big hug to you on the lost of your friend.

Thank you for letting me know about Tom Cruise.

Last night I finished The Duke is Mine by Eloisa James. Good story, but I like her other Faerie Tale books better.

Now I'm reading Almost Perfect by Susan Mallery.

Under a Vampire Moon by Lynsay Sands.
I stayed on an island once and this book takes me back in time. It's almost like I can see and smell the ocean.

DH is working all weekend again. I am watching reuns of Everybody Loves Raymond. Eating homemade oatmeal cookies. YUM!!

It's our Australia Day Long Weekend so extra reading day AND we finally got some rain last night, bit of respite for our firerys battling the bushfires in the area. I haven't seen a dry like this is a while, my lawns as so dead! (bonus of not having to mow for the summer as opposed to last year).

Reading: Reapers Woman - Joanna Wylde (motorcyle book) I hope this MC genre gets a few good authors taking it on.

I finished two books this weekend. REESE by Lori Handeland (the first in the Rock Creek Six series - - which is 10+ years old) and THREAT OF DARKNESS by Valerie Hansen.

I think out of them all, Sam was my favorite and Cole was a close second. I love Garrett too but his story started a little too slow. I can't wait for Steele!
