I have two reviews coming up shortly (both contemporary romance!!), and now I have to find a new read for my weekend. Maybe one from this list? Although two oldie but goodies are calling me from my TBR lists.
Or I could delve into another psych thriller. Those always seem to keep me on edge (and turning the page until I hit the end). Is it weird that I like the “scary” as much as I love the romance? LOL!!! As long as it’s in book-form, I’m good. DEFINITELY a NO in real life.
BARGAIN FINDS & READER RECOMMENDATIONS (NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order. Sales listed are for Amazon U.S., however some of the Amazon UK links also reflect the sale!):

Tee hee!!! “Penn thinks women belong in one of two places: the kitchen, or the bedroom. Hannah, a proud feminist, happens to believe the same thing about men, and has no problem telling them about it.

- Distrust (Smirnov Bratva Book 1) by T.L Smith <— LIVE!! RUSSIAN MAFIA ALERT!! “She was there, then she wasn’t. She would play with my emotions like a well-played guitar. Then she would disappear. Making me want to strangle her. Maybe she wasn’t a ghost, maybe she was the giver of sin…“

HER HUSBAND DIES AND SHE HAS TO SORT THROUGH HIS THINGS… “What begins as a widow’s effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited.” P.S. Okay this Stephen King book (almost 700 pages!!!) is super-bargain priced today, and there’s a one star review that made me LOL so hard!!! The reviewer gave it one star because they do not like cats to be dead. Awwwwww!!! SO sweet and I agree. I dunno that I’d 1-star a book for that, but I did get a kick out of that review. Sometimes ya just gotta say it like you feel it, I guess. Anyway… this book looks good!
