Happy March 1st Everyone!!!!

We finally got hit with some snow!!!!! I have to admit when it comes down in small amounts I don't mind it!!!!

I plan on spending a nice relaxing weekend at home reading! Besides the normal shopping -- I am not going to do anything!

Earlier this week I read Captain Durant's Countess by Maggie Robinson - I have to admit that I liked it but I didn't LIKE it. My grade for this book would be C/hot+++ I also read Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt. Love it, I don't know what it is but Ms. Hoyt's heros are just so AHHH. Up next -- Rush by Maya Banks and then maybe the Julia London or Liz Carlyle book.

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Have a good weekend everyone!

Blood work, groceries and rheumatologist today (hopefully THIS doctor is better than the previous one. Or at least nicer). I'm waiting on pins and needs on word for my submission to Avon books from NaNoWriMo...they are now reading the submissions from that day....*nervous*

I'm reading an oldie from the 90's...The Thief's Mistress by Gail Feyrer about Robin Hood and Marian. It's a bit wordier than I normally like, but I like things set with the characters so I'm doing okay with it. I don't know what will be next.

Hi everyone! Happy weekend.... so glad it is finally here. I had a whole week of apologizing to everyone at the "Y" because I was supposed to open at 5:30 on Monday (one of the younger kids asked to switch with me... I usually open on Tues. Wed and Thurs.) Well...I completely forgot and there were people lined up for exercise before work and a spin class. The place didn't open up til almost 8!! When I got the call, I was on my way to breakfast and then Half Price Books!!!! I ended up going in and working 12 to 5. So embarrassed.... got teased the whole week by the people who were waiting to exercise that morning. I guess it isn't good to change and old persons regular schedule.

I started Shiver by Karen Robards, It started off with a bang and I hope it goes like that for the whole book. I am enjoying the characters.

Other than that, I am just going to spend some time with family and go see Sharyns' new living room furniture. She is so excited about it... once in the new recliner, I may not move for awhile. Kids say it is the "best ever" chair.

Have a safe weekend and happy reading.

That's so funny! We recently bought new furniture as well and got a bunch of recliners. We got 2 leather sofas that have a recliner on each end (so 4 in the living room), one in my office so it's kind of a one person area to watch TV or read. One upstairs in our gameroom where we have a TV and a sofa as well. I don't care for the sofa so I am thinking we'll buy something new for up there as well. Recliners are the BEST CHAIRS EVER!

Happy weekend everyone! It's been a crazy week at work for me and I'm glad it's over. I finished reading book 7 of New Species, Tiger, yesterday morning. It was a really good one. I love those New Species guys. They're definitely a little more animalistic than the Breeds. Not sure what that says about me... :twisted:

Anyway, I have some magazines I need to catch up with (Glamour, Shape, Weight Watchers...) so I'll probably read those tonight, and then start book 8 this weekend. It's about Obsidian. Other than that, I need to dress shop for a dress for my newphew's wedding next weekend, and I have to go to a memorial service Saturday afternoon at 2 for a childhood friend who passed a couple of weeks ago. Very sad for her family. She was my age (42).

Have really good weekend everyone!

I've taken a break from re-reading Garwood, Howell and Howard and am currently reading the new JD Robb book with the new K. Ashley on tap.

Based on the recs from Martha and Klass I have also downloaded the Tiffany Snow book.

Tomorrow is my husband's birthday. We will all be together to celebrate. We will take him to a favorite restaurant so he can order his favorite lamb chops.

Hope to get some reading done next week. Still trying to get back to ONE GOOD EARL DESERVES A LOVER. by Sarah MacLean.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks :D Still no word...don't know if that's good news (they've moved me to consideration) or bad (it didn't really submit, still reading, etc). I've got to admit, it's kind of nervewracking spending all of this time waiting. And waiting. And waiting. LOL.

Howdy! I'm thinking by posting here weekly (thanks Kyle) it'll help me get my reading mojo back on track especially with the 2013 Potluck Readers Challenge.
It'll still probably take me a few weeks to read what I want so you may see the same book listed each week. I read soooo slow. LOL

I'm currently reading Lee Childs "Die Trying" book #2 in his Jack Reacher series. Not quite sure if I'm a fan yet because I'm really having a hard time getting into this book. A friend of mine gave me all his books in this series so I'm trying to chip away at them and UGH... I'm only on book 2. Maybe when the movie comes out on DVD it'll help me to WANT to continue with the books.

I've also been trying to finish up reading some graphic novels that I enjoy the artwork & storyline for so I just started the True Blood-(All Together Now #1) series. Not sure how many more the publishers (IDW) will do on this so I'll just have to wait and see. Anyone read GN's?

Last of what I have on my reading agenda is to reread on my kindle "Warrior's Woman" by Johanna Lindsey. Always loved this book so I decided to do a comfort reread. I really need the pick me up.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!
Happy Girls Day this Sunday! :D

Happy Weekend everyone!

Last night I finished Unforgivable by Laura Griffin. It's the 3rd book in her Tracers series. Started out with a bang (actually a carjacking) but I was bored by the middle of the book. Not a favorite.

Now I'm reading How to Marry a Marquise by Julia Quinn. Cute book. I'm liking it so far.

Hey ladies!! I haven't posted in here few weeks because I've had my nose stuck in Kathryn Smith's Historicals. It has been a long time since I've liked an author so much that I had to get my hands on her backlist. And that's pretty much what I have done. So far I have nine. I'm (im)patiently waiting on one that I ordered from ebay and the other is on my wishlist on PBS. I also have one of her paranormals and enjoyed that one as well. In case anyone is interested, these are the titles I read:

Elusive Passion
A Seductive Offer
A Game of Scandal
Into Temptation
For the First Time
In the Night
Still in My Heart
When Seducing a Duke
When Marrying a Scoundrel


I'm expecting In Your Arms Again from ebay and I have When Tempting a Rogue on my PBS wish list. The paranormal I have is Let the Night Begin.

I read A Seductive Offer this week. Also this week I've read A Gentleman Never Tells by Juliana Gray, which I really liked, and Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas, one of my all time favorites. Currently I'm reading The Seduction of Elliot McBride by Jennifer Ashley. I'm liking it so far.

I'm not doing much this weekend. I have an appointment to get my haircut Saturday morning. Then Saturday night I'll be going to my local parish for Night at the Races. There'll be food, drinks and prizes. All the money will, of course, go to the school.

That's it for now :) Have a great weekend everyone!

I am puppy sitting my friend's 10 week old pointer puppy named Katie. She is arriving on Sunday so on Saturday I'll be Katie-proofing the house.

While she naps I hope to finish reading "The Autumn Bride" by Anne Gracie.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Weekend...Phew! it's been a long one...

Taught a Yoga class this morning with my mentor in attendence :? always nerve wracking!!! Good feedback tho' with only a few small things I need to work on, so again.... Phew!

Had some much welcome rain this week and the lawns have decided to no longer be dead (green sprouts abound), will get out with the lawn mower at some stage.

No other plans I am very "fly by the seat of my pants" mostly. Probably housework and painting...

Still reading Tiffany A Snow bk 1 No Turning Back, which I am 70% thru, second book will be next.

Enjoy the weekend, Good Luck Muffin! :mrgreen:

I'm also ready the new JD Robb book. Those In Death books are fantastic. Roarke and Dallas are so perfect. Eve is such a complex woman. I don't know how Nora keeps them going. This I think it's book 30 and they never get boring.

Glad you downloaded Tiffany A. Snow Kathleen Turner series. I love, love it. I cannot wait 'til December for the next one. I hope she moves the release date for summer. It ended with a bang and I want to know what happens next.

I just finished a "first time for me author" by the name of Moriah Densley. The book was Song for Sophia and it was terrific. It's been a bit since I read an historical and I loved it. Now I'm starting Edge of Dawn by Lara Adrian. I just picked it up from the library (it came out on Tuesday). I'm not sure how I'm going to like it -- a post-appocalyptic vampire/human book -- but I love the characters so I'm hopeful.

No plans for this weekend. Monday is the grand opening of the Horseshoe Casino in Cincinnati and we'll be going to that. So I'll probably look around for something to wear -- not a fun thing for me.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Have you read Deborah Webb's Faces of Evil series? If not, it's a must. Love them. The first book is Power, the second, Obsession and the third comes out March 26 titled Impulse. It's scary and dark at times. The killer on the loose is vicious. It follows ex-FBI agent Jess Harris as she tracks him to her home town of Birmingham, Alabama. The chief of police has been divorced three times, a hunk and has a history with Jess. Jess is also divorce and she is, I think in her late 30's or 40. What a ride. The ending of the second book was a huge surprise. Didn't see it coming. Cant's wait for the next one.

I'm so glad I'm back here discussing books but most of all so happy I finally reconnected with my love for reading. I had the summer from hell last year. Health problems etc, etc. and could concentrate on reading. Had my Kindle with so many books and couldn't even read one. Well, that has all changed, read them all and can't stop once again.

I'm glad to see you back too! And so many others as well. I don't care if people are doing re-reads. Sometimes it's STILL a new author to me or someone else.
