Archives for July 2018
<— It’s Eden Butler’s book birthday today (she just released her latest, Roughing the Kicker (Saints and Sinners Book 1) – a sports romance featuring the NFL’s first female kicker.”)…
“…The NFL. A pro career. All eyes on the league’s new kicker. Millions of people expecting her to fail.
But Reese wasn’t a novelty and the spot she landed on the New Orleans Steamers was one she planned to keep. With her teammates giving her hell and the world doubting her every move, Reese will have to fight harder than anyone else to make her dream a reality.
Nay: I’m 11% in on Wild Like the Wind and I’m already LOVing it! Hound’s great, but when a Chaos book starts out with a decent dose of Tack Allen, I’m ALL in!
But that’s not the only one that has me squeeing. In fact, I’ve one-clicked quite a few, and I have no idea what I’m going to start next, but here are the ones that make me extra excited:
MY MINI BLURB JOLT LIST: Wild Like the Wind (Kristen Ashley’s latest biker book!), My Oxford Year (recent release that’s on super-sale and I keep hearing how AMAZING this book is – teacher-student and will rip my heart out? Yup, I one-clicked!), Sunshine and the Stalker (recent release that Tessa found for us and that I totally missed last month. It sounds creepy and forbiddeny – K. Webster, so you get an idea – and well… I’m intrigued!), Ravensong (T.J. KLUNE’S LATEST in his werewolf series that had SO MANY going crazy a year or so ago!!!), Roughing the Kicker (SHE is in the NFL!!!!! And she’s got to deal with the guy that broke her heart… AND!! Don’t forget to check out her guest post today ➔ Eden Butler’s Top 5 Swoony Books To Read Over and Over), I Am Grey (gave me a total blurb jolt… I can’t quite get a handle on this synopsis but I know I want to read this badly) and one from yesterday’s list: Butterface (she isn’t considered pretty but she’s getting attention from a sexy cop that she has a crush on)…
P.S. While you’re here, don’t forget to check out my latest review (and yesterday’s earlybirds!!):
Happy Monday!!! I can’t believe July is almost over. This summer is just flying by, but I’m having very good reading luck these days, and tomorrow’s big release day is going to be awesome (Kristen Ashley!!!). 😉
<— P.S. I just one-clicked this one!!! 😀 I’m going to start it tonight. I’m so in the mood for it.
Wanna do “Three Things”? Okay I’ll start!
1.) My mom and sister just arrived yesterday and they are spending 3 weeks with me!!! They’ll even be here on my birthday. 😀 YAY ME!
2.) I’m reading “The Perfect Mother” and I’m only a quarter into it but I’m still not sure what I think of it yet… It’s too early to tell, and the frequent POV switch through multiple characters can get confusing. I think Tasha loved it though, and she’s my other book-twin (especially for psych-thrillers), so I’m sticking with it.
3.) My mom hates vegetables, and always thought she hated “Zoodles” (zucchini that has been spiraled to look like long strands of spaghetti – so we can get our “pasta fix”), but I made her the ultimate bowl last night. Zoodles, covered in homemade meat-spaghetti sauce (very hearty), and melted cheese and parmesan all over it. SHE. LOVED. IT. 🙂 *beams*
4.) Okay I’m cheating here but!!! Kate Stewart’s latest book is LIVE and here’s my Book Review of Someone Else’s Ocean by Kate Stewart!!
LOOK WHAT JUST WENT LIVE !!!
Someone Else’s Ocean
Kate Stewart’s latest JUST WENT LIVE and I had the pleasure of reading an early copy over the weekend!!
It was gentler on us than some of her past super-angsty books that had us in a frenzy, but it sure had it’s share of pull-pull, kindle-throwing moments, and of course… a seriously angsty moment that had my heart in my throat.
So what’s it about?
Koti has been living life on an island renting beautiful vacation houses to tourists, and loving her uncomplicated, and very single life. Having run from her high stress, demanding world, she’s finally found a semblance of peace living on the beach, and helping make visitors happy… even if for just a few weeks. That is, until Ian (her childhood friend that she hasn’t seen in ages) shows up in the vacation home right next door to hers, kicking up a storm.
