Hello Everyone.....Happy Weekend!

A quiet weekend! YEA! Hopefully the weather people are wrong and the rain doesn't come so I can it outside and read!


I read The Escape by Mary Balogh....I really enjoyed it and Fanning the Flames a cute novella by Victoria Dahl which kicks off her new series. I just started the new Jill Shalvis book -- Then Came You!

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Hello everyone. Happy weekend. Glad to be back now that things have settled down with my brothers' and my own health problems.
I am reading The Accident by Linwood Barclay and it's good. I want to get other books by him. I'm afraid that none will be as good as Trust Your Eyes which was my favorite mystery last year.
Want to get started on some,okay two, harlequins.

Happy weekend all!

Having finally finished The Shining the other day I thought I would be ready to jump into something new but...not so much. In fact, I was thinking about going ahead and starting Dr. Sleep by Stephen King, which is the sequel to The Shining. PLUS, I ordered the 1990's mini-series on DVD with Stephen Weber and Rebecca DeMornay and it came yesterday. Supposedly, since Stephen King didn't like the Stanley Kubrick version, he was very involved in the mini-series version and it's supposed to follow the book more closely and be very scary. So I think I'm going to watch it, or at least start it tonight.

I guess I'm kind of on a movie kick too...less reading in general. The boys and I are going to see the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie tomorrow. I am hearing it's EXCELLENT.

So my job came through and I am resigning on Wednesday of next week from my current job. I'm planning to try to get back on schedule in terms of reading again (I have so much on my Nook, I could go a year or more without ever buying another!!). So not sure what I'm going to read. Like I said...since I've been on this kick with The Shining...I feel like I need to see it through. Watch the mini-series and read Dr. Sleep - then I can move on. I know...I'm weird and anal. What can I say. :oops:

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

I finally finished Shield of Winter. I'm still trying to decide what to read next.

I have a job interview Tuesday for a job which I've wanted for some time.

Good evening all! And Ameliad, good luck with your interview.

Looking forward to a nice quiet weekend. Sleep, sit outside and read - meals on the grill!

Been super bush the last two weeks, but I did finally get Susan Mallery's Until We Touch read. Great addition to the Fools Gold series.

I just picked up In the Mood For Love by Beth Ciotta. Love the cast of characters in the Cupcake Lovers series. If I finish that, Jill Shalvis new book will be up next.

Everyone have a great weekend!!

I read 3 books this week--'Hidden in the Shadows' by T.L. Haddix, 'Cruel Justice' by M.A. Comley and 'A Fair of the Heart' by Donna Marie Rogers.

'Hidden in the Shadows'--The H is 51 years old, the h is 28, but the age difference was not an issue for them. The larger problem was the fact that the H was the town sheriff, the h, the department IT specialist.

'Cruel Justice'--WARNING: If anyone choses to read this book, please be aware that the prologue is one of the most horrific I have ever read. Aside from that, the rest of the book was very good and I have already purchased the second installment in the series.

'A Fair of the Heart'--A fast read, instalove between the H/h, and well-written depictions of her 2 children, ages 10 and 3, made this a very enjoyable CR.

Next up? I haven't got a clue, but I will be getting a lot of reading done in the next week. We are suffering through a record-breaking heat wave and once my early morning outdoor chores are done, it is inside for the rest of the day.

Have a good weekend all!

HR

Good luck with your interview, Ameliad :!:

Congrats on your job, Kyle :!:

This past week I read A Week to be Wicked by Tessa Dare. I absolutely loved it. It's fast moving, funny and romantic. Can't wait to read the next in the series.

Now I'm reading Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones. It's slow going so far. I'm hoping it picks up soon.

Good luck on your interview. Many prayers coming your way.

Kylebemac, glad things are getting back on track with work and glad to hear you finished the Shining.)


Hi everyone!
I am really relaxing this weekend. Well, not that I don't relax each and every weekend! I plan on getting a little work done, but not too much. Had a hectic but nice 4 days of work last week. Our art teacher is on vacation, so I asked anyone who wanted to, to stay and stamp some cards for a couple of hours... I would supply the stuff and we could fill in the afternoon and they didn't have to go home right after lunch. OMG! Learned a very big lesson.... just bring a few stamps and things.... don't give so many choices. Dani, wish I would have taken a picture and posted it to facebook... you would have cracked up. 3 card tables filled with stamps, cards, colored pens. two sided tape, and cards and envelopes everywhere. I guess they had a good time because they asked if we could make some Christmas cards next week. Ok, I am only bringing 3 stamps for outside of cards, some sayings for the inside of the cards, and we are going to do each one together as opposed to everyone doing something different. Wish me luck on that one!
I finally finished that Jude Deveraux book, Moonlight Masquarade. It was okay. By the end of the book I was really tired of the h and h trying to not interfere with each others plans for life. They told each other what they wanted and agreed that they would love doing it together, then all of a sudden they both turn into I don't know what... I just think I liked her older books much better. Some phases of the book didn't seem like they were written by a seasoned author.
If anyone else read this book, let me know how you liked it and your opinion of it all.
I picked up an old timetravel to read. Constance O'Day-Flannerys' Here and Now. The man is thrown into the future and I love those because of how amazed they are about cars and planes and all the modern things. The man is from the 1920' and only knew how to drive a Model T Ford... the lady is pregnant and he has to drive the car to the hospital. I did laugh at that scene.
Hope you all have a great weekend and happy reading.

I have been working a lot of unpaid overtime this week so my reading has been quite limited. Started the Promise by Kristen Ashley and will be finishing it today. Loving it.

I'm reading Shadow of Night (actually rereading) by Deborah Harkness. The same as last weekend, I'm rereading the series in preparation for The Book of Life which comes out on Tuesday. Can't wait!!!! I'm enjoying the rereading and I never thought I would. There are a lot of things I picked up the second time around and I know exactly where to skip through the parts that just move the story along.

I'm going to Don Pablo's for dinner (hopefully) tonight with my sons and future DIL. Tomorrow I'm hoping to grill some steaks that I splurged on with homegrown corn on the cob and tomatoes! The smell of summer on the grill. I just hope the rain holds off.

I'm late to the party as usual. :) Hope everyone had a great weekend.
Haven't done much this weekend as I'm still keeping an eye on the big guy, he's doing great though. I'm so relieved.
Good luck with your interview Ameliad.
Kyle congratulations on the job!
I just finished reading Ava Catori's The Big Not So Small Curvy Girls Dating Agency. It was really cute and funny.
