Happy Valetine's Day to my dear friends

I hope everyone had a good week. For everyone who lives on the East Coast and the South OMG.....I saw pictures of North Carolina on Facebook and SueKen sent me pictures from the NJ area.

As far as I know we have no plans for this weekend unless hubby surprises me! (NOT) We are going to Kohl's tomorrow.

I've been slowing up on my reading....I did read and enjoy Must Love Dukes by new to me author Elizabeth Michels. I just started Sinfully Yours by Cara Elliott. I may start the new Suzanne Brockman book but I'm not to sure.

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading.

Keep Warm!

Hi everyone!
To all our friends in the South who are not used to this horrible weather, you all have my prayers. Snow, most people can handle, but not ice. No one can really handle that crap! Spring is only 40 some days away.

If it snows here this weekend, I will be staying home and reading and catching up on my DVR things I have taped. I am reading a book called Beautiful Ruins by Jessica Walter. It is for my Muddy Cup Book club read this month. It is starting off a little bit slow but they say it picks up as you read on. Let's hope so. I have the new Janet Evanivich book from the library and am itching to start that one.

Try to stay warm and have a great weekend and happy reading.

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Weekend!!

I finished reading Rule Breaker this weekend. It ended up being pretty good and it seems like things MIGHT end up moving forward finally. We finally know what's happening to Amber, which is a story line I think she's drug on too long. It seems like if she cut some of the purple out and half of the "soul" -searing, -stealing, - destroying, we'd have a more manageable book under 350 pages that gets to the point faster. But anyway....

I'm needing to clear my palate a little bit, so I haven't started anything new. I went through my RT magazine last night and I am shocked to find that there is NOT ONE SINGLE book coming out so far that I know of that I want to buy in March. :shock: :shock: Believe it or not, that's a good thing because I have so much I need to catch up on in my real TBR pile and my Nook TBR pile is getting out of control too.

I have some magazines I need to catch up on this weekend, and I need to get a good long run in since I'm signed up to run the 10k Conoco Rodeo Run on March 1st. (KILL ME NOW) I also need to grocery shop in a serious way, and do some other things around the house. Chuck and I are going to a "secret" place for Valentines dinner on Sunday evening. I don't know where we're going. He just told me to dress pretty and be ready to go at 4:30.

I've been watching a lot of video of Tom Hiddleston lately. He's the guy who plays Loki in Thor and the Avengers. I LOVE HIM. He's my new guy obsession. He's funny, does really good impressions and the man can dance!!! He's also very very cute. I'm thinking I need to watch Thor and the Avengers this weekend too. So - long story short, right now I have nothing queued up to read this weekend. If I end up getting everything done and can start something, I will probably start the new Jaci Burton's new Play by Play book, Melting the Ice.

Have a wonderful weekend ladies and stay warm and safe!!

It is going to warm up here in TN over the next week...even reaching near 70 by Wed!

I am definitely going to start cleaning my house....believe me I would rather be beaten than to clean house, but we have had the outside animals inside for so long during this cold weather, that I am covered up with black dog hair and white cat hair. Plus, hubby and I haven't had a good night sleep in weeks....animals running through the house and always wanting outside to use the potty at all hours in the night! Their little fannies are staying outside during this warm spell.

I started reading A Rose at Midnight by Anne Stuart. Can't get into it. Can't really understand why the female character hates the male, the reason she wants to kill him is pretty flimsy. And he is beyond a jerk. It will be interesting to see how Anne Stuart makes them fall in love...all I see is just fighting lust.

Other than clean, I don't have any other plans. Don't know what we are doing tonight...can't make up our minds. Probably nothing, since we avoid crowds.

Happy Valentines Day, Everyone!

We were lucky. Just caught the very edge of the storm coming up from the south and only got a couple of inches of snow. Glad we didn't get dumped on like they did in the south or up the east coast. This has been a long winter. Can't wait for it to end.

This week I read an older Suzanne Brockmann book called Love With the Proper Stranger. It was an interesting read. After that I picked up The Law and Missy Penny by Sharon Ihle. I was bored with it and ended up skimming.

Don't know which book I'll pick up next. Maybe Scream for Me by Karen Rose or The Duke's Perfect Wife by Jennifer Ashley.

Another 4-5 inches tonight (booooooo). DH and I tried to go out for dinner but there was a 55 min. wait and we didn't want to chance the roads getting even worse.
Perhaps tomorrow.

I'm reading Wild Things by Chloe Neill and really enjoying it. Slow going though because I've been wasting too much time online!

Tomorrow, assuming the roads aren't too bad, I'm hoping to go to an Appalachian cultural fest. Good bluegrass music and crafts.

Have a good weekend everyone.

I'm still reading Turned by Virna DePaul. The book is good but I've had limited reading time lately. I've been going to water aerobics two nights per week plus other activities mean I'm not getting much reading time

I am almost finished the DO OR DIE by Suzanne Brockmann. First time I've read her in several years. I am enjoying the read.

I also started FEAR NOTHING by Lisa Gardner. Only about five chapters in but it is fascinating read so far. I do hate to see DD Warren in such an uncertain state of mind but I have no doubt she will recover shortly.

Hope all of you are having a great weekend!

Dani

I actually ended up reading a novella by Jaci Burton that falls in the Play by Play series before Melting the Ice. It was called Holiday Games. It was a follow up to Liz and Gavin, and showed Ty and Jenna getting married. I'll probably start Melting the Ice this week. Just funny because I didn't even know there was a novella in the series. :shock: It came out back in November.

Kyle, it seems like every author slips novellas in to their line up, and I am getting kind of sick of them. I'm not a short story lover in the first place, and this seems like a ploy to get everyone to buy these novellas, most of which are only available in e-book format. Not sure what side of the fence I am on regarding these short stories. It's also hard to keep track of them all!

I finished JD Robb's last book, Thankless In Death and loved it. Her new one comes out tomorrow, which I always look forward to! Glad this is my week off, so I can get my Eve and Roarke fix in all, as it will be a long wait until fall for the next one.

I also read Robyn Kaye's Red Hook book that came out last week, and as always it's excellent.

I have very few books on my list for March, which is a good thing. Mt. TBR is totally out of control!

Everyone have a great week!

No Kyle, it never will! Now I have to order that book of Lori's too. I knew it was too good to be true - I could never go one month without a new book!! It's what we are!
