It seems the angst level is intense and SO MANY here truly are addicted to it. Like Feifei:

“Maryse Addicted to You is freaking AMAZEBALLS!!! Just like the title suggests, I was addicted to this book and the rest of the series!! Didn’t eat lunch and skipped dinner to read them!! GAHHHH!!! Just thinking about them gives me all these feels LOL! “

And here’s the “Addicted” series reading order.

Happy Halloween everybody!!! Over there to the left is my “halloween crew” that is standing on guard at my house as we speak. Aren’t they the cutest?

So what’s everyone doing tonight/this weekend? Dressing up? Parties? Treats? Tricks? *snort*

Looks like today was a good release day as well as a bargain find day, so I’m starting the list with some of the great looking new releases… (a few perfectly suited to the Halloween atmosphere… but with romance). ;)

P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).

P.P.S. Also, while these bargain finds and new releases “look” great (and/or have awesome reviews and recommendations), unless I have my own personal review link next to it, I likely haven’t read it myself… I just found it and wanted to share it in case it’s awesome. So if you read it, let me know if it’s awesome. LOL! :D

NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order.

She lost her mother to cancer, her husband left her for a twenty-two year old, and her bank account is nearly depleted.

  • Outside the Lines: A Novel by Amy Hatvany <— Another one with great reviews and also has that rich, sweet growth feel to it (from the blurb, anyway). “Eden decides it’s time to find her father, to forgive him at last, and move forward with her own life. Her search takes her to a downtown Seattle homeless shelter, and to Jack Baker, its handsome and charming director.

  • The Forgotten Girl by Jessica Sorensen <— Stephanie found us this one!

Sometimes it even feels like she might be two different people completely—the good Maddie and the bad one…
  • Wreck Me (Nova) by Jessica Sorensen <— recent release that looks so good! Perfect marriage until her husband shows another side to himself… “Turned out Conner had another side to him, a darker side that Avery didn’t see coming. He wrecked and broke her into a thousand pieces, leaving Avery to put herself back together. From then on, Avery vows never to let a man into her life again.

Turning away from the only life she knew, Tatum is forced to alter her life plan.” …she meets someone new. “Blaise Richards is a tattoo artist who moonlights as a volunteer fire fighter…”
  • Transcendence by Shay Savage <—- One of my favs!!! My review of Transcendence.
  • Climbing Out (Hawks Motorcycle Club Series Book 2) by Lila Rose <— BIKER BOOK ALERT!! “Deanna Drake has a past she longs to forget, but won’t ever be able to. She’s always been the tough one.

Only will it be forever?
  • Toxic: Logan’s Story (Torn Series Book 4) by K.A. Robinson <— R OCK STAR ALERT!!! It’s book #4 but can be read as a standalone. However, that said, I’m thinking starting this story from book #1 might be best, since it appears to have a ton of romantic angst as it progresses… And maybe love triangles, too? But for those that don’t mind starting later in the series… I can tell, definitely heartache. “Unable to let her go completely from his life, Logan reassumes his role of best friend while he watches Chloe find her happily ever after with another man.” BUT THEN!!! ”The moment Jade saw Logan, she knew she wanted him. Unfortunately, he was with Chloe at the time. After his world falls apart, Jade steps in to comfort him, determined to bring back the Logan she once knew.
  • Unsuitable by Ainslie Paton <— Kristy recommends this recent release: “Currently reading Unsuitable and it is fantastic! Really making me think about gender roles and my goodness the feels. Couldn’t believe when I saw I was only 3% in and addicted, seems even crazier that im only at 35% now. Im just worried I’m in for some heartbreak. Highly recommend this!!” Oh yessss she’s older than him… and he works for her as her nanny… sounds good!!
  • Sociopath: A Dark Romance by Lime Craven <— I’m bringing it back, ’cause Jennifer loved it! “Just finished sociopath!!!! Holy dark and twisty! Love him, hate him, love him, hate him, crazy, crazy, crazy! What a serious mind twist but oh so good. Could not put it down!” Yep. Sounds RIGHT UP MY DARK ALLEY!!!!
  • On the Growl: A Shifter Romance Anthology by Lynn Red, Celia Kyle, Jessica Sims, Flora Dare, Marina Maddix <— GREAT reviews for this anthology and it’s bargain priced!!!
  • The Life of Anna, Part 1: Enslaved by Marissa Honeycutt <— DARK READ ALERT!!! GREAT reviews. Plus, book 32 is out! “Raised by an extremely abusive guardian, Anna was molded into the perfect tool for Devin’s use. Devin will use Anna’s unique gifts to control everyone around him and eventually take her gifts for himself.” Hrmmm… it sounds paranormal but I can’t see any indication of a paranormal angle in the blurb or in the reviews I lightly skimmed… I dunno? Intrigued I am!
  • The Life of Anna, Part 2: Entwined by Marissa Honeycutt <— Here’s part 2 and it was JUST RELEASED! I’m not going to read the blurb…
And how about a little bit of horror to spice up our Halloween weekend. I’ve taken a few from Amazon’s TOP 100 best selling horror books, to be sure we have the best of the best. :D
  • Run by Blake Crouch <— tons of great reviews and that blurb… *shudders* Killing sprees… for days and then… “Y E S T E R D A Y All the power went out… T O N I G H T They’re reading the names of those to be killed on the Emergency Broadcast System. You are listening over the battery-powered radio on your kitchen table, and they’ve just read yours. Your name is Jack Colclough. You have a wife, a daughter, and a young son. You live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. People are coming to your house to kill you and your family. You don’t know why, but you don’t have time to think about that any more. You only have time to…. R U N”
  • A Good Marriage by Stephen King <— I hear this one’s awesome (and it’s fairly bargain priced!): “Darcy Anderson’s husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his routine business trips when the unsuspecting Darcy looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a hidden box under a worktable and in it she discovers a trove of horrific evidence that her husband is two men—one, the benign father of her children, the other, a raging rapist and murderer. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends “A Good Marriage.”” Eeeeeeeep!!!!!
  • Submerged by Cheryl Kaye Tardif <— Great reviews! “Rebecca Kingston yearns for a quiet weekend getaway, so she can think about her impending divorce from her abusive husband. When a mysterious truck runs her off the road, she is pinned behind the steering wheel, unable to help her two children in the back seat. Her only lifeline is a cell phone with a quickly depleting battery and a stranger’s calm voice on the other end telling her everything will be all right.
  • Mr. Mercedes: A Novel by Stephen King <— not bargain priced but SO many great reviews for this one. “In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes…
  • 11/22/63 by Stephen King <— WHOA WTH!!??? This one has a TONNNNN of great reviews, is on sale right now, and I have NO idea how to even begin descrying what the book is about from that blurb… a time portal where he can change the course of history. And a ton of creep-factor…
  • 900 Miles: A Zombie Novel by S. Johnathan Davis <— On sale! “In a harrowing 900 mile race against time to get to his wife just as the dead begin to rise, John, a business man trapped in New York, soon learns that the zombies are the least of his worries, as he sees first-hand the horror of what man is capable of with no rules, no consequences and death at every turn…”
  • Spirit Legacy (The Gateway Trilogy Book 1) by E.E. Holmes <— Oh this one sounds creeepy perfect!! TONS of great reviews. College student uprooted after tragedy… “Jess’ life has never been what anyone would call easy; doing damage control in the wake of your nomadic, alcoholic mother doesn’t exactly make for a storybook childhood. But now her world has fallen apart just when it should be coming together: her mother gone—dead under mysterious circumstances; her life uprooted to stay with estranged relatives she’s never met; and there’s something odd about some of the people she’s been meeting at school: They’re dead…
  • Bird Box: A Novel by Josh Malerman <— bev just picked up this one and yep… looks scary as heck!!!! She says: “I just picked up a scary book because of recs, though I usually don’t do horror. But lot of recs. Suppose to be scary….maybe one day I’ll be brave enough. It’s Birdbox by Josh Malerman.” Ohhh look at this, from the blurb: “Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from. Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?

Your “halloween crew” is soooo cute!!!

Thanks for another great list. I’m going to start it with Unsuitable.

Jean October 31, 2014 at 12:03 PM

I think I should read something Halloweeny today…maybe Red Hill or first EIT book.
Finished Prisoner today and I was very disappointed…. it had so much potential…
What are you reading Maryse?

Lauren October 31, 2014 at 12:07 PM

I think I’m going to finally start the Torn series by K.A. Robinson….it’s been sitting in my TBR list ever since it was bundled for $.99….months ago.

Maryse October 31, 2014 at 12:13 PM

Jean… I’m reading Prisoner… I’m at the part where they faked out the guy with the flat tire… so only about 30% in. Darn now I’m worried…

Maryse October 31, 2014 at 12:14 PM

Lauren it looks SOOOO good… well. I say that based on the blurb of book #4, but I can imagine the turmoil it took to even get that THAT. You know?

Maryse October 31, 2014 at 12:14 PM

Thank you Fabi!! The one we call Pumpkin legs (the biggest pumpkin head there) lights up so pretty at night.

Yes… Unsuitable sounds like a good read.

Jean October 31, 2014 at 12:18 PM

Maryse, it just ended so abruptly… Not so much a cliffhanger but….assuming it picks up in book 2?? I did like it though! Look forward to your thoughts on it!

bev October 31, 2014 at 12:28 PM

Maryse they are adorable.
I just picked up a scary book because of recs, though I usually don’t do horror. But lot of recs and 1.99 . Suppose to be scary….maybe one day I’ll be brave enough. It’s Birdbox by Josh Malerman.

Jean I want to try the next in the series, but for me it was like it had a beginning and an ending but no real middle, lol.

Amy October 31, 2014 at 2:28 PM

Your decorations look so sweet, Maryse!! Hubby wanted an evening at home just enjoying the trick-or-treaters, so we’re watching Trick ‘r Treat and I’m making these…

AND I’m reading Red Fox to add to the creepy factor of the day. ;)


Diane M October 31, 2014 at 2:38 PM

Deep into Charley and Reyes… Book 7 & the series is still GOOD! And she’s the grim reaper so it works on Halloween!!

Tessa October 31, 2014 at 3:05 PM

Those guys look so cute. Great way to welcome the neighbors to the house.

Life of Anna looks good. It went into my TBR for my dark reads needs. (which is definitely not now for some reason) And, as for the PNR possible twist, in book 1 blurb caution by the author, it says “My heroine is human…-ish.” Ooooh!

I’ve been on a PNR kick that ended abruptly yesterday. :/ So my first Halloween read is a romance involving a Prince? It had a CH, so um… maybe that’s scary? *grins* The book was free, but what a good book. It was sweet, angsty, royal drama, alpha jerk… Command Me by Geneva Lee. The cover and title are totally misleading. The blurb is misleading. This is a great romance, period. The only accuracy is the prince is definitely an alpha jerk.

K October 31, 2014 at 3:35 PM

Addicted After All is finally out – for anyone who reads this series by Krista and Becca Ritchie.

Laura October 31, 2014 at 3:36 PM

Well I’m still reading iced not liking this red hag woman how dare she take barrons intestines!! I also wasn’t allowed to make the baby a machalo so she was a bunny instead though a cute cute one cause u know her momma is a scardy cat so only cute things at Halloween! I also was told by my mother to make sure I don’t get freaked out by people who are dressed up an randomly start throwing salt and blinding people with my torch because she says that’s how u get arrested dear! Yeah so can’t wait for Halloween to be over!

Fabi October 31, 2014 at 4:07 PM

Laura you’re so funny. And I have to agree with you about the “cute only” costumes. I’m a scardy cat too.

Fabi October 31, 2014 at 4:09 PM

O.M.G. people. I just finished Vain part two. I am as speechless as I was when I finished part 1. Mouth hanging wide open. Shaking my head in disbelief. WOW

Fabi October 31, 2014 at 4:33 PM
bev October 31, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Laura I’m pretty sure if you went around randomly throwing salt at people you would be the scary one.=-O
I’m sure she was the cutest bunny in Scotland.
Curious as to what you think ofDani’s potential men?

bev October 31, 2014 at 5:09 PM

Laura & Fabi a little Halloween cute.

Fabi you are on a reading roll.

Cheryl October 31, 2014 at 5:37 PM

Maryse- adorable pumpkin crew!!

We’re sticking home handing out candy and I’m reading Into the Hollow- great Halloween read!!

Happy Halloween everyone!! :)

Fabi October 31, 2014 at 5:44 PM

Omg Bev, those are precious!!!!

and I so needed that…I on Vain 3 now and there’s no more room in my stomach for knots. Definitely need a break.

Fabi October 31, 2014 at 5:48 PM

gotta add this because you said reading roll

Last Light was full of layers for me. Not as much as Night Owl but still with a lot of depth that can be missed if just reading at a glance

Vain is in your face gut punch wham with the plot points. Ouch and oof.

bev October 31, 2014 at 5:54 PM

Cool cause I got the bundle couple days ago. But my attention has been shot last couple days so I’ll wait till I can focus.
Having fun dipping in and out of Mathilda.
So what is your next read, #3?

Shell October 31, 2014 at 5:55 PM

Maryse love your Halloween decoration.

Linda October 31, 2014 at 5:58 PM

Happy Halloween guys!! My county and neighboring county are having their Homecoming football games tonight and because those are such a huge deal in our area trick or treating is taking place tomorrow night!! I know right?? So I think my reading decision for this evening is Morning Glory by LaVyrle Spencer. The synopsis just grabbed my attention. A more gentle read after reading After by Krylov. Maryse looking forward to seeing your new blog room!!! I can only imagine how exciting that must be!!

Fabi October 31, 2014 at 6:10 PM

Bev, yeah I’m reading 3 now. Gotta go do the Halloween thing for a while though so it’ll be later tonight before I can read again.

Amy October 31, 2014 at 6:13 PM

“Having fun dipping in and out of Mathilda”



bev October 31, 2014 at 6:19 PM

That has me laughing.
I’m basically slow pitching them to you, aren’t I?

Lynne October 31, 2014 at 6:24 PM

I actually liked Prisoner. A solid “4″ for me only because the ending left so many questions unanswered. I would absolutely buy Book 2 if there is one.

Lynne October 31, 2014 at 6:26 PM

I’m starting Deviant tonight. Am I the only one who thinks it sounds a lot like RAW?

Laura October 31, 2014 at 6:39 PM

Ok I have an iced question that’s just bugging me does ryodan like ‘like’ dani or is he just making sure she’s his to basically use for her talents cause if he likes her he’s so not going to win her doing the nasty with Jo wtf?!

Amy October 31, 2014 at 6:59 PM

Okay, skinwalkers?!?!? Not cool, man. Not cool at all. Hubby and I have a very dear friend who was (literally) born and raised on a reservation, and he has told us some SCARY legends/stories including those with skinwalkers. *shudder* I’m gonna have to drink myself to sleep tonight.

Laura, I am still cracking up over your phobias. :P

Fabi October 31, 2014 at 7:04 PM

Laura you crack me up. No can tell girlie. You have to read on.

bev October 31, 2014 at 8:16 PM

One thing I loved about Dani is I can’t guess how her story will go.
I’m wondering if I need to do a re read before Burned

bev October 31, 2014 at 8:19 PM

I liked reading the different answers to the tbr questions.

amy davis October 31, 2014 at 8:56 PM

Just finished Serial Volume II it was amazing

Fabi October 31, 2014 at 11:18 PM

Finished Vain part 3. Hmmm it was great but it needed a bit more before the ending. There’s a free novella mentioned at the end of the book. I bet that’s what it’ll take to keep this in the 5 * category. But I haven’t seen it mentioned yet.

Laura November 1, 2014 at 4:35 AM

Bev how cute are those pictures!!! I wish I could link u one of my little bunny!! It’s morning here btw so I survived Halloween!! I’m sort of forgetting dani is only 14 I mean in the uk when she turns 16 she is legal anyway but I mean 14 is still jailbait!! Christian is totally bammy I don’t know what the hells goin on with dancer and I mean come on wtf are ryodan and barrons?! We still done have a name for it!!

Cheryl November 1, 2014 at 9:15 AM

PUSH is only .99 cents for the next four days in anticipation of PULL’s release on November 6th!!!!!

Cheryl November 1, 2014 at 9:23 AM

I know Amy, Red Fox was creepy, BUT the bar scene with Dex and Perry-finally something!! :)

bev November 1, 2014 at 10:18 AM

Laura I’m very curious about her age and what it means to the timeline of the books. I’m going to have to look up release date of burned so that I can do a re read. The part that made me kind of go “whoa” is when visits Christian and he hides his guest.

bev November 1, 2014 at 10:25 AM

It is funny I have Killer Queen and I keep looking at it. I was so surprised & happy when it came out because I loved Fred & Viv. So want to revisit them. But for some reason I’m holding off. Maybe enjoy the anticipation last longer? Or just the right time to be able to get lost in the book?
Though thinking maybe Sun.
Do you ladies do this?

Tessa November 1, 2014 at 11:50 AM

Laura, to paraphrase the author, he sees the potential of her. He’s basically staking a claim now, and waiting for her to grow up. Sort of the, “I like you kid, and we’ll be dating when you grow up” feelings.

Toni November 1, 2014 at 12:03 PM

Violet Addiction by Kirsty Dallas was just released and so was Loving Lawson by my favorite author, RJ Lewis…and its only 99¢!!

Fabi November 1, 2014 at 12:56 PM

Iced is probably one of the few I won’t have to reread when the sequel comes out. I may not remember all the details but the story really stuck. It was so fast paced and surprisingly good.

I’m reading Measure of Devotion now. It was just a random download I saw while looking at other recommendations. It was free so I grabbed it. It is surprisingly good!

Laura November 1, 2014 at 1:47 PM

Finished!!! It was good really wish the next was out its jan 2015 bev not sure exact date though!! Don’t know what I will be reading next either should I go with prisoner?

Amy November 1, 2014 at 2:08 PM

I was going to start Push today, but Pull doesn’t come out until Thursday! Why not Tuesday? *grumble*

So, today will be either The Benson and then Dead Sky Morning or Redemption or What We Leave Behind or maybe finally Archer’s Voice. I love days where my biggest decisions are what to read. ;)

Amy November 1, 2014 at 2:16 PM

Bev, I do the exact same thing. I have *multiple* series sitting on my Kindle app waiting TBR, and I have no idea why. Maybe it’s like you said about waiting for the right time to get lost in the book. Or it’s probably just that I am extremely undisciplined in sticking with my TBR list. Yeah, that’s what it is.

*gives one-finger salute to Book Dom*

Jean November 1, 2014 at 2:31 PM

“Gives one finger salute to Book Dom”……blahahahahaha!!!! Love it!

bev November 1, 2014 at 2:32 PM

Laura what all is in your tbr?

Amy it’s funny because for some I get happy just looking at them yet put them off. I’m not familiar with Redemption or WWLB.

bev November 1, 2014 at 3:17 PM

Just picked up Love in English for .99. I think that ends today.

Bev, WWLB is by Rochelle Weinstein and is supposed to be a “what could have been” book. Hopefully it will have a lot of longing and angst and will make my heart ache. *giggle* Love books like that!!!

I just realized I have several books titled Redemption on my Kindle app, but the one I’m eyeing right now is by Kathryn Barrett, and I’ll admit it’s the pretty cover that is making me want to pick it up. Only thing is there are no reviews on Amazon yet, so I’m now thinking of saving it for when I need a super sweet read after a heavy read as that is what it seems like it will be.

Amy November 1, 2014 at 3:28 PM

Ya like that, Jean? :P Although I don’t recommend doing that to a Book Dom too often… *rubs backside*

By the way, Bev…Love in English is fantastic!!!!! :D

I LOVED Prisoner!

Well worth reading. She depicted the ‘I’m so attracted to you and I really really shouldn’t be’ so well. Not insta-love, something different I think most have experienced; you ‘click’ and it is entrancing and consuming.

I was happy with ending and I’m hoping there will be more books…

Cheryl November 1, 2014 at 5:16 PM

Same way Amy, not sure why some books/series sit on my tbr list. Think I just get squirrelly with new releases or when everyone is talking about a great read. *saluting my book dom*
Archers Voice is so,so good!!! ;)

Laura November 1, 2014 at 5:43 PM

Ok I have to give u all the Scottish word of the day hubby said one I haven’t heard in ages it’s shoogaling lol its so funny it means shaking as in – ur shoogaling about lol

bev November 1, 2014 at 6:19 PM

Laura I’ve only read Prisoner and Charley Davidson. Prisoner I liked but just liked. I am planning on reading the second book.
Charley is a very likable heroine and the book is funny.
You are coming off such great reads.

bev November 1, 2014 at 6:20 PM

Lol, I’m petting someone’s cat and he is purring, drooling, and licking my fingers. It more what I’d expect from my dogs. Funny thing.

Fabi November 1, 2014 at 6:53 PM

Laura, never heard shoogaling. :-) cool

Bev, yay for kitty dogs. Lol

Amy November 1, 2014 at 8:05 PM

Shoogaling?? I would *love* to hear that said with a Scottish accent! ;)

OMG Bev…is “cat” what you two call his *ahem*? Read your sentence again but replace “cat” with whatever you refer to “it” as.

Yeah, you see/hear it now??

LOL!!!!!! :P

Fabi November 1, 2014 at 8:11 PM

I am on such a roll with books I’m enjoying that all I want to do is read. I’ve loved the last several I’ve read and have done nothing but read for days now.

Really need to get some things tomorrow. But the only way that’s going to happen is if I don’t start another good one tonight.

I only have about 30 pages left in this one. So does anyone have a “bad” recommendation I can start tonight? :-)

Fabi November 1, 2014 at 8:15 PM

Laura if you liked Iced, you might also enjoy The Mortal Instruments series which starts with City of Bones. It’s one of my all time favorite urban fantasy reads.

Cheryl November 1, 2014 at 8:23 PM

Amy bwahaaaaaa!!!

Amy November 1, 2014 at 8:24 PM

Fabi, Insurmountable and Lovely Vicious were both low, low stars for me for various reasons. You could give those a try for your “bad” recommendations. ;)

Then again, you are probably a little familiar with what I like to read so…there’s that. Take my recs for what they’re worth. ;)

Cheryl November 1, 2014 at 8:24 PM

Maryse Push is .99 the next four days!!! ;)

Amy November 1, 2014 at 8:26 PM

By the way, I am in *no way* trying to say those are bad books…just that they didn’t work for me.

*snicker* Glad you got that one, Cheryl!! :P

bev November 1, 2014 at 9:24 PM

Amy that is funny and seriously gross at the same time. I compared the cat to my dogs… that’s just wrong.

bev November 1, 2014 at 9:28 PM

So all you Ilona Andrews fans I’m listening to a podcast were she is interviewed and, oh my how cute and fun she is. And her accent so great. It’s from Smart Bitches Trashy Books on Stitcher it is under DBSA ep 106.

Amy November 1, 2014 at 9:57 PM

OMG Bev, did I offend you? I’m so sorry if I did!!! :?

*offers Blow-Pop martini to Bev*

(yep, I’m having those again tonight ;) )

bev November 1, 2014 at 10:13 PM

Amy no not at all. Not that easily offended, promise.
Just remind me not to open fortune cookies with you, lol.

bev November 1, 2014 at 10:42 PM

Wow Pull comes out this coming week? Not sure I’m ready to read Push yet. Going to have to think about this.

Fabi November 1, 2014 at 10:47 PM

Lol Amy thanks for the “bad” recs

Amy November 1, 2014 at 10:49 PM

Bev, ever tried those “fortune cookie of the day” things online? Lookie what I just got…

LOL!!!!! Yep, that’s me alright! *snort*

Amy November 1, 2014 at 10:53 PM

Fabi… *bows slightly* You’re welcome, friend.

*giggle* Not bowing over too much or things will start spinning. Mmmmm…melon Bloopop martinis with bubble gum vodka and melon liqeuer. Midori. Yummmmmmyy.

Amy November 1, 2014 at 10:56 PM

Uh, I mean BlowPOP martinis. Hubby fell asleep and left me all liquored up. :P

This is me on a Saturday night…I’m awesome right?!?!?! Hehe, luffs you ladies!

bev November 1, 2014 at 10:57 PM

I was going to say… bed.

Then pressed the open another and that was mine. Lol.

Fabi November 1, 2014 at 11:53 PM

I just finished Measure of Devotion. That random free book I downloaded? Turned into a 5* read. Gutted. I am completely gutted by this tale of selfless love. Where is the crying emoticon when you need it?

Laura November 2, 2014 at 5:12 AM

I don’t know what to read!! I’m not home just now anyways have to go get the baby then I will decide, fabi I will have to add those to the tbr is there a film out about those? Bev is charley YA?

Fabi November 2, 2014 at 8:44 AM

Yup they made a movie out of the first one

drea November 2, 2014 at 9:09 AM

Maryse, you absolutely must continue the Addicted to You series!! The first one was good, but the following books were incredible. Honestly, the supporting characters books are the best. All of the characters are brilliant and full of depth! Rose/Connor and Daisy/Ryke are amazing!

bev November 2, 2014 at 10:17 AM

Laura not YA. I haven’t kept up with the series, plan to go back.
I’m jealous of you and Fabi just knocking out these books left and right.
Dont let my comment put you off Prisoner. I think Maryse is reading it & maybe will do a review. I did like it. Just not shout it from the roof tops, but read it straight through.

bev November 2, 2014 at 11:52 AM

Ok I picked a Sunday read and I’m sticking to it.Riding Dirty by Jill Sorenson.

Fingers crossed its a good one.

Sharon Chalk November 2, 2014 at 11:44 PM

On the Growl is a great paranormal anthology,each story is more a novella and some of them will have follow up stories about other people in the books,its a paranormal and I gave it 5 stars on Amazon,would have given more but thats all they allow lol get it before the price goes up,if you like paranormal shifters,you will love this book,I certainly did
