I am in my countdown to Book Bash mode, making a list, checking it twice… I’m trying to find out who’s naughty or nice. Er…. oh wait. That’s Santa. But I feel like it’s Christmas right now so it works!
I swear I can barely sleep, double-checking everything, “pre-experiencing” it in my brain, *squeeing* about it in text messages with anyone that can stand me right now. I’m even dreaming about it. And I have those typical dreams, you know? The ones where you “forget” to show up and realize that you missed your own test (or in my case… “event”). Then there was the one where I did show up but forgot to bring… everything. Now, i’m just expecting the next one to be me walking in… in my underwear.
Only in my dreams, though… ’cause in real life, it’s just gonna rock, and no worries. My mom’ll be there to make sure I get dressed. Thanks mommy!!
So overall, I’m just a big happy *squeeing* excited mess. One thing I am missing though, is the reason for this whole celebration in the first place. Books. Over the last month or so, I’ve temporarily slowed down my usual reading schedule for this great big book event (it’s worth it though). Eight more sleeps, people!!! Eeeeeeep!!! Actually 7 more sleeps, ’cause I’ll be meeting a ton of you on Friday!
But let me tell you, on July 1st… I’m turning back into a reading machine. Read books, *squee* and then review books. I will read, read, and read some more. I’m seriously craving laying on my couch for days on end, with my nose in book after book. Will y’all join me in my upcoming book indulgence?
Yah!? Cool! Okay so in the meantime, I’ll just continue to “collect” books, and post the reviews of the books I have read, this weekend.
So here are the latest reader recommendations and bargain ebook finds:

- Real Ugly (Hard Rock Roots) by C.M. Stunich <– Maria brought this one to our attention and Angel recommends it! “was good and gritty. It ends in a cliffhanger but book to Get Bent will be out July 4th I believe… My jaw just dropped with how it ended, I said out loud, “No way!” when I finished it. I am dying for the 2nd book too!!!”
- AnguiSH by Lila Felix <— Oh this one looks good! An agoraphobic guy and a girl… “A simple note pinned to a corkboard will lead Ash right to Breaker’s solitary world and she will learn that just because a guy doesn’t fit her ideal, doesn’t mean she won’t fall head over feet in love.” Shannon highly recommends it: “Have you read AnguiSH by Lila Felix? If not you should!!! Five stars for me. Her writing just gets better and better in my opinion. So beautifully written that the lack of smut isn’t even missed. Really interesting characters and I just got sucked right into the story. Pick it up!!!”
