I’m currently reading Kulti… been too quiet around here today! Miss you all!

Maryse January 25, 2016 at 7:25 PM

This will be the 3rd trilogy I finish!! YAY for completing things!! :P LOL!!!

Oh well… not to say that Elle Kennedy’s “Off Campus” series is a trilogy… but I’ve read all three books out in it, so I’m on a roll!

Anne January 25, 2016 at 7:44 PM

Great list Maryse! Starting Dark Room tonight. It sounds intriguing :)

Oh an Archer’s Voice movie?!? Yes please!! So happy for Mia! Her books are so amazing. I wonder who would be playing Archer? Its a tough role.

Amy January 25, 2016 at 8:26 PM

A new Taylor Jenkins Reid book??? *SQUEEEEEEEeEEEE!!!!!!!!!*

Amy January 25, 2016 at 8:27 PM

*snort* That little “e” up there must have been my voice cracking in all of my excitement. :P

Maryse January 25, 2016 at 8:55 PM

*snort* IT TOTALLY WAS your voice cracking!!!!! :P

bev January 25, 2016 at 9:02 PM

I knew you were a teenage boy.

Amy January 25, 2016 at 9:34 PM

LOL!!!! I seriously love you guys. :D

(And what was that boy name you gave me Bev? Was it Andy? *snicker*)

Maryse January 25, 2016 at 9:40 PM

I’m Maurice. ;)

MichelleS January 25, 2016 at 9:58 PM

I finished Captive Prince 2, and I don’t want it to end! When is this book three coming out anyway? Wah! Things just got crazy good. What now? I hate leaving a great world behind. Ugh. Okay, fine… I’ll go with KMM. Not ready for the real world just yet.

bev January 25, 2016 at 10:01 PM

OMG. Maryse that almost made me spew my hot chocolate. Lol.

Cause I speak of the pompitous of love

bev January 25, 2016 at 10:08 PM

MichelleS, Feb 2. So what do you think of Laurent? And that ending?

Amy January 25, 2016 at 10:10 PM

LOL!!! I saw your comment and was all, Maurice? Whaaaa….OH! ‘Cause your name is Maryse! MAR-yse, MAUR-ice. *snort* Got it. ;)

Aaaaaaaand now I have that Space Cowboy song in my head, thankyouverymuch…”some people call me Maurice *whooot whooooo*”

Maryse January 25, 2016 at 10:24 PM

LOL bev!!!! I’ve heard that one before. :P

Maryse January 25, 2016 at 10:25 PM

It’s stuck in my head too, now. hahahaha!!

bev January 25, 2016 at 10:31 PM

But I’ve never called you the space cowboy.

Maryse January 25, 2016 at 10:44 PM

And now… I’m the space cowboy. ;)

Tee hee!!!!

Anne January 26, 2016 at 12:07 AM

Reading Dark Room and its good. It needs better editing though. Not because of grammar but because of some inconsistencies. I mean how can someone launch a re-opening of a fashion store with new designs in a week? It just seems to far fetched.

Tessa January 26, 2016 at 12:17 AM

Anne, the answer is simple. Elves. Obviously, she got the group that made the shoes to do her fashion line up.

Anne January 26, 2016 at 1:06 AM

Lol Tessa that has to be the answer! Elves.Why didn’t I think of that? Lol

Oh also he is constantly hard around her. Like ALL the time! She smiles, he gets hard. She breathes, he gets hard. She looks his way, he gets hard. She farts, he gets hard. I mean come on!! Ok rant over lol

Anne January 26, 2016 at 2:04 AM

Finished Dark Room and it was ok. I was expecting more to be honest. A 2.5/5 for me.

Lisa January 26, 2016 at 4:38 AM

Doing a quick scan to catch up on book gossip. A few are calling to me from that list Maryse (or should I saw Maurice).
Its Australia Day here so I think I can shout myself a book…what do you think?

Lisa January 26, 2016 at 4:43 AM


Fabi January 26, 2016 at 7:22 AM

I had to get Hold by Cora Brent because I’ve all the others in the series. I thought that series was finished. I can’t imagine what Hold will be. There isn’t much in the blurb.

Cheryl January 26, 2016 at 8:24 AM

Just finished Love in the Light. Nice sequel/ending.

Not sure what I’m reading next, but now I have that Space Cowboy song stuck in my head. Now I’ll be humming it all day at work!!! ;)

MichelleS January 26, 2016 at 8:35 AM

Bev – what do I think of Laurent and that ending? Wow. I had the complete wrong idea. I had to re-read it a few times to get what was going on because it was so convoluted. That scene in the place at the end where the “visitors” do what they do when they see you know who… OMG… was holding my breath the whole time. Great recommendation. Totally my kind of read. Intrigue. A hint of the erotic. Forbidden. Betrayal. Just fantastic.

So I decided against Feverborn. That first amazon review made me rethink the 14 dollar price tag. I am reading Shadow and Bone Book two. Why didn’t I go right into book two? It’s amazing.

bev January 26, 2016 at 8:40 AM

Isn’t it fun that we will all be singing the same song today?

So no one else ever hears Maryse as Maurice in their heads?

Fabi January 26, 2016 at 8:43 AM

I didn’t until y’all started in on it. *walks away mumbling and humming*

Maryse January 26, 2016 at 11:33 AM

Y’all better not hear Maurice!!! GASP! LOL!!!!

MA <— Maaaaaaaa-REESE

Maryse January 26, 2016 at 11:35 AM

Here are the TWO names I am called the most:

Marcy <— mostly always that.
Maurice <— by those that I tell my name too… always “Maurice? Like a guy’s name? You parents must have wanted a boy.” *blink blink*

So then I do this: MA <— Maaaaaaaa-REESE and do the whole… “You know… like the spanish name Marisa” but without the a on the end.

Twice I’ve been called “Mary-say”

Tee hee!!

Maryse January 26, 2016 at 11:38 AM

Good to know… thank you Anne!!

Fabi January 26, 2016 at 11:49 AM

lol Maryse. You wouldn’t think your name would be that difficult. :-/ It’s very pretty and original.

Amy January 26, 2016 at 1:13 PM

I woke up with that dang song still playing in my head. Then I had a memory from high school pop in my head that I had totally forgotten about…a guy named Maurice who ran across the stage during a pep rally with nothing but a cape and a mask on. And I mean NOTHING. Let me tell you, a guy’s junk flopping around while he runs is not attractive. Although, the fact that he was a short, little guy (I mean his stature, not…that :P ) made it pretty dang hilarious for whatever reason.

I would think if anything that people would mistakenly pronounce your name MARE-eese…but Marcy or Marysay? *snort* It reminds me of this video (over 90 million views!!)…

Amy January 26, 2016 at 1:14 PM

“It’s very pretty and original.” <——- kinda like "Fabiana". ;)

Carla January 26, 2016 at 3:28 PM

Amazing news, Maryse! Thanks!
Oh and did you see that Jamie McGuire is writing the continuation of Beautiful Disaster for free on Wattpad!

Love this! But I think I’ll wait till she finish it so I can read everything at once. lol

Maryse January 26, 2016 at 3:41 PM

This is AWESOME news Carla, and I will SO read that!!! YAY US!!! :D

MichelleS January 26, 2016 at 5:44 PM

Okay – so I guess Michelle is not very original…. since we have a bazillio nof them just on this blog! I always said it right, Maryse, just so you know. Just so you know, when I first started lurking on this blog, I looked you up and when I put Maryse in a search engine I got Maryse Oullet – some blonde bombshell model – and I was wondering if it was you on your “day job” – that’s what I thought for a few months!!! LOL. Then you posted some pics at a convention and I realized you were not said bimbo! HA! My daily confessional.

Maryse January 29, 2016 at 11:52 AM

LOL Michelle!!!

I’m honored that you said my name right!!! YAY!!! And that WWE model/wrestler well.., I’ve always been jealous of her and her hotness. Tee hee!! :P Damn her for sharing my name.

P.S. I had it first. So there. :P Er… which of course means she’s younger than me… *sigh*

Maryse January 29, 2016 at 12:18 PM

I do LOVE the name Fabiana. So pretty…
