TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT WE FOUND FOR THE WEEKEND :D !!

Tessa: Untouchable by Sam Mariano… GAH! This book! GAH! THIS is why the best of 2018 is waiting until the end. It’s so good and evil and OMG, I want to punch him and adore him and GAH! He reminds me of Mateo in all the bad and good ways.

Jean: I love seeing you excited over a book Tessa! And this one sounded like it was so you!!

Tessa: …OMG Mind mess jerk, right? If you like this, I’d recommend her mob stories.

bev: Lol. Tessa isn’t it fun to find something that gets us that worked up and happy?

Tessa: YESSSS! I finished it because I couldn’t stop reading it. HOT (seriously hot) but more than that, he’s such a jerk and everything that happens with the angst… my type of book. I want more of their story, even if it was a standalone.  :)

  • Nothing Personal: A Standalone Romantic Comedy by Karina Halle <— KARINA HALLE ALERT!!! SINGLE DAD/ENEMIES-TO-LOVERS ALERT!! He broke her heart once, and now he’s up for the position SHE deserves! “…New in town and on her turf, Kessler promises he’s not the same man he was – and considering he’s now a single father to a precocious toddler, he’s telling the truth. But he’s still an arrogant and devilishly charming man who’s taking over the position Nova feels she deserves...”
  • Riven: A Novel (Riven Series Book 1) by Roan Parrish <— M/M ROMANCE ALERT!! Michelle S thinks it’s HOT!!!
MichelleS: Is it weird that a m/m has me all flustered? I find myself skipping over sex scenes usually, but I’m reading every word of this one. I’m a gay man trapped in a woman’s body? Ha! Or maybe I’m just a straight woman & TWO men are just double the sexiness? Whatever… this book is working for me.

Amy: A Promise of Stardust was such a good read. As y’all know, I don’t connect well with male-only POV books, but that one worked for me as much as one of those could. I knew it was either going to end up sad or straight up heart wrenching, and not knowing which it was going to be kept me glued to it.

  • Tripping on a Halo by Alessandra Torre <— HUGE TWIST ALERT!!! Theresa read this recent release and she says:
Theresa: Just finished Alessandra Torre’s Tripping On a Halo. It started out a bit funky story line, a bit slow, it did have a huge twist at the end.

Tessa: FAE! BULLY! FANTASY WORLD! So, just pure catnip written really well with an awesome plotline….if you love those Holly Black, you have to read Cruel Prince, unless a bully is something you detest. :)

Tessa: …Best YA fantasy was Cruel Prince. *swoons* EVERYTHING I love in a book, including a huge bully. :)

  • Right Where I Want You by Jessica Hawkins <— LIVE!!! THE LATEST BY JESSICA HAWKINS ALERT!!Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller. But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1…”
  • Ringing in the New Year by Alexa Riley <— ALEXA RILEY’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! SHE WAS IN A CULT… “…Cami Evans fell in love with the boy next door when she was seven years old. They spent their whole lives falling for one another until one day she’s taken from him. She spends five years with her father in a cult until she’s able to make her escape and find her way back to Reed…”

The only reason we put up with each other is because we share the same best friend. Then, everything suddenly changes when Max is involved in a horrific accident that sets him back three years. He remembers his friends, but here’s the real kicker: He doesn’t remember … me…” <— GASP!!! eek And then the blurb gets EVEN BETTER!!!!!
Lauren: LOVE this author!!!! My favorite book of hers is DEVIANT & the sequel, REDEMPTION (DEVIANT Book 2).
Jan: The Fortunate Ones by R.S Grey. I just finished it actually. It’s good. …IMO one of her better books. Good meaty characters (oops, that sounds weird LOL) OK, good, interesting characters. Good storyline. It’s a bit angsty for me but I still liked it. Worth checking out if you haven’t read it. Especially if you’ve got ku :)
  • Bird Box: A Novel by Josh Malerman <— STILL ON SALE!!!  I LOVE IT!!! BOTH THE BOOK & THE NETFLIX MOVIE!!! Ooooh I like the movie intro to Bird Box better than the book-intro, actually. It’s INSANE and chaotic and intense and stressful and SO SCARY!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE how they did that. But the book is just as fascinating from the very beginning and will keep you ON EDGE!!!
  • All the Lost Little Horses (A Desperation Creek Novel Book 2) by Janice Kay Johnson
  • Matt (Texas Rascals Book 2) by Lori Wilde <— DEPUTY SHERIFF & THE SINGLE MOM ALERT!!! “...Savannah’s busy days were filled with single-handedly raising a toddler and running her ranch. Her lonely nights were filled with longing for what might have been…if Matt hadn’t shattered her heart. Now Matt was back and Savannah had to decide whether to turn Matt away or take a second chance on a forever kind of love…”
  • Writing On The Wall (Between the Covers Book 1) by Rae Oakley <— LIVE!!! BOOKSTORE OWNER CRUSHING ON THE HOT BAKER DOWN THE STREET, but he’s harboring a dark secret… “…I’m the proud co-owner of an indie bookshop, and I didn’t get here the easy way. I fought for everything I have. My entire life revolves around making sure my shop succeeds. Nothing distracts me. I live and breathe for this shop. I don’t have time for love. That’s why I never expected to feel this way about finding the sexiest man alive in a bakery with flour on his cheek…”

Everyone is watching and noticing… things that have to do with this teacher… ”…One of Tom’s students, Jenna Tripp, also lives on the same street, and she’s not convinced her teacher is as squeaky clean as he seems. For one thing, he has taken a particular liking to her best friend and fellow classmate, and Jenna’s mother—whose mental health has admittedly been deteriorating in recent years—is convinced that Mr. Fitzwilliam is stalking her…”

  • Surviving Amber Springs: A Stand-Alone Contemporary Romance by Siobhan Davis <— LIVE!! SUPER-ANGSTY SOUNDING ALERT!! Everyone hates her and her twin brother… “...There’s no choice but to leave. To move clear across the country in a last-ditch attempt to start over. Transferring to a new school midway through senior year is hellish for most people. For me, it’s a welcome relief—until someone discovers our secret and now everyone knows. The pointing, whispering, and scathing looks follow me around again, and I’m back to square one. Except, this time, I’m not alone.…”
  • Elusive Promise (Off The Grid: FBI Series Book 4) by Barbara Freethy <— LIVE!!!
  • His Rock: A Marriage Mistake Romance by Ashlee Price <— LIVE!!!
  • Finding Hope (Satan’s Sinners MC Book 7) by Colbie Kay <— LIVE!!! BIKER CLUB PROTECTION BUT SHE’S HIDING SOMETHING…Women.

  • The Dating Alternative by Jennifer Woodhull <— LIVE!!! SEXY SWEET-SOUNDING COMEDY ROMANCE ALERT!! Her fiancé was dating someone else… “…There are some great things about being single. Going without… you know, s-e-x… isn’t one of them. My friends are trying to convince me that there’s an app for that, but it’s not working out so well. There is this one guy I’ve always sort of flirted with, though. For the first time since I’ve known him, we’re single at the same time. I’m so not ready to jump into another relationship, but maybe it’s time to find out if this friends-with-benefits thing can really work…”
  • To Have It All by B.N. Toler <— JENNIFER CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT IT AND LOVED IT!

Jennifer: I also want to say that I am not much for a paranormal read….but I like to read one here and there. I had a book on my TBR that I would always look at and dismiss…

Than awesome Grey with her TBR challenge for Ugly book cover happened and I chose that because well the cover is awful.

BUT HOLY HELL GUYS-if you have not read “to have it all” by BN Toler you need to. I actually started this last week but did not read beyond the first chapter. Picked it back up yesterday and just started from the beginning and completed it in less than 24 hours.

I went to bed thinking about it, woke up thinking about it and even though I was at work could not focus on that till I finished.

I may have picked this book for it’s UGLY cover (and by the way the cover is PERFECT as once you read the story it makes so much sense) but there is nothing UGLY about this story. Definitely 5 stars for me!

                                    

 

AUDIOBOOK L:D VERS!

For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free audiobooks deal —>

R: Renee …My new obsession with audio books continues. I’m now finding things to do around the house just so I’ll have an excuse to “read.” Not that there’s ever a lack of things to do. I just don’t usually do them.

  • AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans all of your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!
  • Dark Notes by Pam Godwin <— Rochelle recommends!!
Rochelle: Wanted to put a plug in for Dark Notes… Audible has the five star listen. When you start you can’t stop. This is one of these books we are always looking for or the book you don’t want to end.

PREORDERS (going live soon!!!  :D )

Nay December 28, 2018 at 10:48 AM

Good morning! Happy, happy Friday!!!

bev December 28, 2018 at 11:21 AM

Good morning.

So now know the bed hog does not like the sound of recycling being picked up.
But does like to give kisses. Lots and lots. Especially after I’ve put stuff on my face. I think because some of my products smell like ginseng and forest.

MichelleS December 28, 2018 at 12:29 PM

Good morning! My dog loves to lick my face after I put on lotion. I think she’s trying to clean it OFF. Ha!

MichelleS December 28, 2018 at 12:31 PM

Ooh. I see Cruel Prince up there. I loved that one. Almost put it on my best of list, but was determined to try to stick to just ten.

Tessa December 28, 2018 at 12:47 PM

MichelleS, stick to just 10? Pfft! :P It was such a good book. :)

*Saying this in both posts* Julie O – For Sam Mariano’s mob books, start with Accidental Witness. It’s the first of the series. It’s the only “high school” one, but it sets the tone for the whole series, especially my favorite of the series, Surviving Mateo.

Tessa December 28, 2018 at 12:50 PM

Oops, meant Resisting Mateo, not surviving. Surviving wasn’t the insane one.

Cheryl December 28, 2018 at 1:31 PM

Happy friday! Visiting family and was going for a run, but it is pouring. So now time to read! :)

Maryse December 28, 2018 at 1:58 PM

bev, I bet it’s because you just smell naturally sweet! ;)

Maryse December 28, 2018 at 1:59 PM

Sounds like a perfect day Cheryl!! ;)

Maryse December 28, 2018 at 1:59 PM

MichelleS you know I’m now going to add that one to your “Best of 2018″ list right? After that comment. ;)

bev December 28, 2018 at 2:48 PM

I’ll take it, lol.

bev December 28, 2018 at 2:50 PM

MichellS, so she is not alone, lol. I try to keep it to a minimum on my face. I figure good for the psyche not the skin.

Grey December 28, 2018 at 3:35 PM

I am LOVING Untouchable…

Hard to believe this is the last weekend of 2018?!?! Wow, where did this year go??

bev December 28, 2018 at 4:07 PM

Do you all have any 2018 favourites other than books?
Activities, products, foods, or ?

Nay December 29, 2018 at 12:34 AM

Grey–this year FLEW by!

bev–I’m trying to think of any 2018 faves, and for me, it seems like it’s been a year with fewer trends in the things I enjoy–books and food. I feel like the past 10 years were filled with SO many widespread book trends, like zombies, dystopian, vamps, shifters, steampunk, alphas, bullies, bdsm, mommy porn, billionaires, the new adult genre, plus so many others. With food, there was a major breakthrough for chefs, restaurants, bakeries, and food competitions, and it seemed like chefs and bakers were constantly trying to one-up each other with the newest, coolest food trend. But in 2018, those things seemed to have finally leveled off a bit. I still love watching all my food competitions (especially the British and Aussie ones), but they’ve lost a bit of their luster.

Ooh! I thought of something. My favorite thing to do at home is spend time with Waylon, my grandbaby who just turned 4 months old, and my favorite thing to do out on the town with hubs is go to Pancho and Lefty’s Cantina before we go across the street to a Predators game. So. Much. Fun!

Ellen Cardwell December 29, 2018 at 11:51 AM

Found a fantastic dark Thriller called Dark Inheritance, it’s pretty intense and right up my alley! I highly recommend it, it’s by PB Lawson, pblawson.com has a great introduction there on his page. So good!

D.G. December 29, 2018 at 2:40 PM

Jennifer…I absolutely LOVED To Have It All when I first read it! So much that I had to read Toler’s other books. Where One Goes and What Lies Between is an AMAZING duo that is a MUST read! BN Toler hooks me in every time with her style of paranormal.
Just to be warned….I UGLY cried….and my heart was TORN. But it was definitely an emotional ride that I would take again and again!

Lisa Kay December 29, 2018 at 2:58 PM

Maryse under your “Kindle Unlimited Membership Deal” for a year when you click on that link, it says 6 months instead of a year. I thought I would let you know. Thanks for all you do, and have a Happy New Year!

bev December 29, 2018 at 5:15 PM

Nay, I just got Netflix and I keep thinking of continuing with The Great British Baking Show. I watched the first season on YouTube. Also they have like UK version of House Hunters. I love that stuff, lol.

Jan December 29, 2018 at 5:47 PM

bev some other favs of mine from 2018 were:
- the film A Star is Born. Loved it.
- I’ve discovered the joy of boutique honey – it’s soooooo much better than supermarket honey. I was given a tiny bottle for a Christmas gift and it’s super yum. It’s spoiled me for ordinary honey now.
- earlier this year hubs and I finally finished all the Longmire series on Netflix (there’s a few of them). A rare show that we BOTH liked just as much LOL.
- I’ve been reading a few ‘popular history’ type books about famous people from history – from kings and queens of England to Hollywood stars from the early 20th century etc etc. What some of those famous people got up to – PHEW!! Truth is stranger (and wilder) than fiction.

Jenn December 29, 2018 at 5:57 PM

D.G-Yes yes yes-Where one goes and what lies between I also read-those were actually the first books I’ve ever read of hers and I LOVED them! Oh and I ugly cried too. Such unforgettable reads!

bev December 29, 2018 at 5:59 PM

Jan, I still have to watch the last season of Longmire.

A few of my favorites.

Tiam vitamin c serum. Strong, but think it actually makes my skin brighter and smoother.

Sulwhasoo products that I have as samples or bought on sale. Just the sensory experience of how good it feels and smells.

Haribo candy. Of course been eating them since….forever? But the best gummies and what I’ve been craving this year.

Ask Me About Kpop podcast. I love a good podcast and found this new one right after I fell into kpop. It’s fun because it is two best friends talking about what they love.

Dramabeans website. I need somewhere to rant and rave, lol. Plus people like to post photos of Gong Yoo, lol.

Devacurl conditioner and gel. I keep coming back to them. I’m actually trying something new right now, but I love the smell and how it doesn’t build up I can just rinse it out. Not the strongest hold but i get a few good hours.

Nay December 29, 2018 at 6:08 PM

My husband binge-watched all the seasons of Longmire and absolutely loved it!

Bev–I adore The Great British Bake-Off! I’ve watched every season and have watched the Aussie, Kiwi, South African, Irish, and any other versions I can find.

Jenn December 29, 2018 at 6:09 PM

I’m with you Jan “A Star Is Born” definitely a fave of 2018 for me too I can’t wait to watch the academy awards and oscars as they are both nominated! Oh and Bradley Cooper is actually nominated for more Grammys than Taylor Swift which I find unbelievable since he is really not a singer you know? Oh but he is! God I could go on and on about that movie-just loved it!
Another fave new hobby for me in 2018 is I started making Xmas centerpieces using wine bottles my MOM, step mom and mother in law were my gunniea pigs and honestly they all thought I bought them ♥️ So now in 2019 I have lots more wine drinking just so I can keep making them

Jenn December 29, 2018 at 6:43 PM

I am asking for some prayers as I just found out that one of my dogs furry friends was diagnosed with cancer today and it’s not good at all! Her name is Abby-She is our neighbor. I spoke to them and they are planning to put her down this week once all the family says there goodbyes. My dogs and I will go over tomorrow to visit and say our goodbyes

MichelleS December 29, 2018 at 6:54 PM

Bev – some of my 2018 non-book favorites are: A Star is Born, Nordic Gnomes, IT Cosmetics CC foundation, Lacey cookies from Costco, eyelash serum (just discovered it this year), Chris Stapleton, making flatbread, charcuterie boards, and Ozark on Netflix.

Jenn December 30, 2018 at 10:21 AM

I ended my year reading “Waiting For The Sun” Robin Hill and wow! I am in awe! Such a breath of fresh air this was for me! I literally am still walking around with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes remembering certain moments and just these 4 words… you know get me right in the heart! *“Baby….I met someone!”* I absolutely loved it…..so beautiful! Definitely will be on my very first best list I’m making and sending your way Maryse…..soon

Nay December 30, 2018 at 11:27 AM

Jenn–sounds like Waiting For the Sun affected you the same way it affected me! I thought it was amazing!

Miraculously, I’ve also been working on my Best Books of 2018 list. I have it all on paper–just hoping to get it edited today.

bev December 30, 2018 at 11:31 AM

Lol. I wrote mine on paper first too, but didnt edit.
I need to open a tab with you Nay. I can send all my comments to you to polish and then pay up at the end of the year.

MichelleS you are making me hungry with your list. What does a lash serum do? Make them longer?

R. Renee December 30, 2018 at 12:22 PM

Jenn!!! I just saw your review!!! Thank you! I’m so happy you liked it! ♥

MichelleS December 30, 2018 at 12:54 PM

Yes, Bev, it makes them grow longer & fuller. I think it’s mostly castor oil. I even bought the off brand from Amazon, called Rapidlash. It worked. Took about 5 weeks. But now I put it on every night. And people noticed. Winner!

Tessa December 30, 2018 at 1:29 PM

I’m writing my best and um… it’s more than 10… by a lot. *blushes* Too many good books this year.

bev December 30, 2018 at 1:49 PM

Oh, I like this even if it goes surprisingly violent at the end.

https://youtu.be/16QbCoxLNkI

Tessa, I dont think I even hit 10. I’m glad you had a good year.

Tessa December 30, 2018 at 2:02 PM

Maryse, just sent my favorites. :)

R. Renee December 30, 2018 at 3:56 PM

I made Maryse’s pot roast at 4am this morning! I was lazy so I threw the carrots in with it (skipped potatoes). Like those much better roasted separately, but the mushrooms!!! I added whole mushrooms and they are divine!

Jan December 30, 2018 at 6:16 PM

At 4am, R???? It sounds yum, though ;)

Nay December 30, 2018 at 6:22 PM

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but I just found it. The Idea of You by Robinne Lee is going to be a feature film! I can’t wait to see who they pick to play Hayes!

https://deadline.com/2018/12/the-idea-of-you-gabrielle-union-everything-must-go-transfers-female-projects-welle-entertainment-slate-cathy-schulman-jeff-gaspin-1202523033/?fbclid=IwAR0NybdGmvRXc5m9c_xPdT-6t46W_9NLMj7o_sIGmDucp3_IzWT7p8kmwuw

bev December 30, 2018 at 8:31 PM

R when do you sleep? You need one of those weighted blankets to keep you laying down.

Tasha J December 30, 2018 at 9:30 PM

Bev, is there any romance in The Dresden Files?

Jan December 30, 2018 at 10:08 PM

Intriguing, Nay. I personally didn’t like the book (though I know many loved it) cos the age gap was too much for me to accept as romantic or sexy. It felt too much like a yummy mummy running around with one of her son’s mates Yeah I know she didn’t have any sons, but I’ve got three and for me it was just too weird. I also found the h weak and indecisive. But still. I’ll keep an open mind about the film. As you say, so much would depend on casting.

Tasha in my memory the dresden files is uf rather than pnr. But I could be wrong. It’s a while since I read them.

bev December 30, 2018 at 10:20 PM

Tasha, I never kept up with the series and it’s been so long now. I would say no. I did ship our two leads, there is a female detective he sometimes works with, but I am a shipper at heart and I can’t remember how much chemistry there really was.
I believe Harry had a relationship with another character, but I dont remember the romance being very central though the relationship had effect on the story.
Definitely more UF/mystery.
How it ended up I dont know. I should get back to them some day.

Tasha J December 31, 2018 at 2:34 AM

Ok, thanks. I don’t need for it it to be paranormal, per se, they’re kind of all the same in my book. Supernatural. I just wanted a hint of something.
Honestly, I feel completely scattered when it comes to reading. Must be school break messing with my mojo. I’m all off kilter. So, Dresden Files sounds good to start, but then long series overwhelm me. And Bird Box, I started a few pages and it turned out it wasn’t my day to read. And then I think, Jewel E. Ann has a new one coming out, oh! I will read the next one in her Jack and Jill series. I’m dying to know what happens! Oh, I own another book that seems like it’ll be different, maybe good, reads a page, gets sidetracked- hours later thinks through what other books I already have, need to get, new releases I wanna read now, gets sidetracked. I can’t seem to grasp anything.

Tasha J December 31, 2018 at 1:27 PM

I decided. Ringing in the new year with Jewel E. Ann’s Middle of Knight. I’ve been reading all morning! :D

bev December 31, 2018 at 3:07 PM

A cup of coffee and list of books to come are NOT a good combo for me.
I put way to many on preorder. I did this last year and still haven’t read them. So mo more. It goes against my 2019 goals.
Though when I forget and they surprisingly pop up will I regret it?

I think not.

Jan December 31, 2018 at 5:52 PM

bev, thank you for finding a way to use our favourite phrase. Did anyone think we’d forgotten about ?

I think not.

bev December 31, 2018 at 8:45 PM

Everytime we say it an Amy gets her wings.

bev December 31, 2018 at 9:00 PM

What is everyone reading ?

Tessa December 31, 2018 at 9:36 PM

I’m reading A Court of Ice and Wind (War of the Gods Book 3) by Meg Xuemei X. It’s book three in a reverse harem series with gods, vampires, fae, shifters, mages, and stuffs. The heroine is nutty. :)

bev December 31, 2018 at 10:16 PM

That sounds like fun.
I just cleaned out my currently reading on GR to start fresh in the New Year.

I’m still reading Starfish. I’m just reading slow, but I like it. One of those ones were I don’t (so far) feel the compulsion to always pick it up, but one that when I do before I know it I’ve read 2 or 3 chapters.

Tessa December 31, 2018 at 10:39 PM

It’s cute. She’s very narcissistic and is all about beating up the bad guys.

Nay December 31, 2018 at 11:21 PM

I’m halfway through with Good Gone Bad by Giana Darling, but as soon as Jewel Ann’s new book, A Place Without You, is live, I’m switching to that for the buddy read on GR.

Amy January 1, 2019 at 12:30 AM

Wishing everyone a safe and wonderful New Years Eve!!

I have my hangover breakfast items and Bloody Mary mix ready as well as all of the traditional foods for New Years Day. So, while I’m recovering tomorrow I can catch up on posts and finally make my best of 2018 list. Finally.

Amy January 1, 2019 at 12:31 AM

Actually, bev…every time someone uses that phrase, I get more feathers in MY wings.

But do I have enough feathers yet?

I think not.

Tessa January 1, 2019 at 2:18 AM
