Happy start of a new week, everyone!!! Tomorrow’s going to be crazy with the big release list, but today has a nice edge to it, too. ;) In fact… I’m exceptionally excited about that one there to the left, and it sounds like all sorts of forbiddeny-trouble. Maybe even a little “Thoughtless-like“. Check out the blurb and you’ll see what I mean. AND!!!! I already love this author. I absolutely went CRAZY for this author’s book Undecided (Burnham College Book 1) so… *squeeeeeeee!!!!!* :D

Ela June 12, 2017 at 6:30 AM

I just want to go back to sleep!

Jean June 12, 2017 at 6:50 AM

Me too Ela! I hate Mondays!

Maryse June 12, 2017 at 7:34 AM


*passes around some strong coffee*

Lisa C from DFW June 12, 2017 at 8:35 AM

Started the new M. Zapata book. It’s a pretty slow start. If I didn’t know how awesome this author was, I might have DNF at this point. I’m hanging in there though.

bev June 12, 2017 at 9:09 AM

C’mon ladies. Huggle the cap out of your day.

Amy June 12, 2017 at 9:46 AM

*takes coffee from Maryse and sips it*


I absolutely LOVE this Monday. I requested the day off and I’m getting my eyebrows microbladed. :D

Happy Monday everyone!!

Jean June 12, 2017 at 9:48 AM

Amy, is it “your favorite day”……*wink wink* Enjoy!

bev June 12, 2017 at 9:57 AM

Why are we winking? Is she meeting her lover?

Ela June 12, 2017 at 9:58 AM

So, Amy…talk to me about this microblading and EVERYTHING YOU KNOW vs. regular perm makeup! Email me if you want or PM on GR. And no I’m not googling it because I already did that!

Jean June 12, 2017 at 9:59 AM

Haha, no bev! If you read When Life Happens, you’ll know what I mean……”Today is my favorite day” made my heart sing!!

Grey June 12, 2017 at 10:14 AM

*looks around* Am I in the right spot? bev, is the one suggesting hugs…I know I was gone all weekend, but I kind of feel like I am in the twilight zone right now.

I’m reading my Pick-for-me by the wonderful Fabi, Rush… Well, I just started it and I can tell it’s gonna hurt so good. Lol! It is going to be a wine and Godiva night! Kind of poetic because Emma Scott has another book releasing tomorrow :lol: if anyone needs me, I’ll be in the blankie fort with Manny.

Amy June 12, 2017 at 11:00 AM

OMG bev… *snort* NO. Good lord, this is how rumors get started. Or really good story lines. ;)

Grey…you’re in the right spot. bev is making assumptions based on my libido and is directing our huggles elsewhere. No WAY would she suggest we direct them towards her. :P

And yep Jean…this is going to be “my favorite day” since I know I won’t have to spend 15 minutes every morning doing my eyebrows!! Tomorrow will also be my favorite day since it will be the first day with my new brows. That really was a sweet line in WLH.

Amy June 12, 2017 at 11:09 AM

Okay Ela…microblading differs from regular perm makeup in that she will use a teeny tiny scalpel-looking thing to make little slices in my brows and then fill them in with the dye. The little slices mimic natural hairs as opposed to just having a brow shape tattoed on. She will do a little bit at a time and have me check with a mirror every few minutes to direct her for more or less in terms of thickness, arching, length, etc. I’ll have to go back for a touch up in about 6 weeks but then they’ll be good for a long time after that. It takes about 2 to 3 hours.

My brows will be the same shade and shape I use now with my Anastasia BH Dipbrow, and I’ll be able to fill them in and darken or sharpen them as I want to after about a week. I am so excited to have this done!!

D.G. June 12, 2017 at 11:53 AM

Amy…girl…you are brave. Not sure I could do that…

Grey…Emma Scott…Sugar and Gold! Awesome read! But I maybe be partial because I love all her books!

And Jean…”it is my favorite day!”

Grey June 12, 2017 at 12:19 PM

Yes! Tomorrow is Sugar & Gold day…and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo day. I have been fortunate enough to prescreen them both… *tosses confetti* it will be a party here tomorrow I’m thinking!

Amy, girl, that sounds wicked painful! I’m wincing just reading the description!

I’m singing the school’s almost out for the summer song :lol: my kids are driving me bonkers!

Ela June 12, 2017 at 1:21 PM

Ok Amy, how much pain are we talking???

Jean June 12, 2017 at 1:26 PM

My girlfriend I work with had it done. It’s almost like getting a tattoo, scabs up, and healing time, but now they look great!

Amy June 12, 2017 at 2:26 PM


*deep breaths*

#%@&$@%# @#%$&!!!!!!!!

*tries not to rub brows*



At least they look great so far… :cry:

Amy June 12, 2017 at 2:28 PM

I’m either taking a couple of shots of jager when I get home or poppin’ a vicodin left over from my dental work.

Jean` June 12, 2017 at 2:39 PM

Yeah, that was the hardest part for my friend….not rubbing her brows!

bev June 12, 2017 at 3:11 PM

Why?? No no no!!

Jean, don’t do it.

Jean June 12, 2017 at 3:25 PM

I would never do it bev…….I remember my girlfriend wanting to rub her eyebrows so bad, but she couldn’t!

Amy June 12, 2017 at 3:32 PM

I want to run them or smack them or put ice on them or SOMETHING but I can do nothing of the sort.

As much as I am being a whiny baby, I do know it will all be worth it and I’m glad I had it done. ;)

Jean June 12, 2017 at 3:35 PM

It will be worth it Amy….my friend’s brows look PERFECT now!

Amy June 12, 2017 at 3:48 PM

I always love it when I see the occasional exclamation mark from bev. ;)

I know Jean…don’t they look amazing once they’re healed?? I have to get a touch up and final fill in four weeks from now, but in the meantime I am trying not to obsess over the shape and the desire to build them up with my Brow Wiz pencil.

Amy June 12, 2017 at 3:59 PM

Okay, so to get my mind off the burning going on within my brows…book sales!

Every Ugly Word by Aimee L. Salter is 1.50 (she is horribly bullied but has a magic mirror which shows her in the future)


Beautiful Deception (complete Beautiful Mess series and Deception Duet) by TK Leigh is .99

Jan June 12, 2017 at 6:58 PM

Oooh Amy. You are brave. My eyebrows are wincing in sympathy. I hope it looks fab when you’re all better.

Silver Silence isn’t out till 15th on amazon.au. Oh well. I’m just gonna try a sample first in case it’s not one of the better ones of the psy-changeling books. It’s $12.99 AUD so I’m not buying it unless I’m convinced it’ll be worth it. I’m interested in the new Julianna Keyes as well, but my tbr is already HUGE!

Lisa C I sneaked a peek at Dear Aaron last night (even though I’m trying to finish a HR before I read it) and yeah, it didn’t immediately grab me either. The h seems a little immature. :/ And cosplay? Um, just no…..not my thang. But I LOVED Kulti and Wall of Winni. Kulti is one of my fav ever books! So when I do get to DA properly I’m really gonna give it a red hot go.

Maryse June 12, 2017 at 7:03 PM

*rubs eyebrows and pets them down gingerly*

P.S. They are ginger eyebrows, so that is totally apropos. ;)

Maryse June 12, 2017 at 7:05 PM

*rubs Manny’s brows and hands him to Amy with 2 Tequila shots*

I mean… 2 Tylenol. ;)


Maryse June 12, 2017 at 7:06 PM

*ahem* you’re gonna have to choose, Amy. :P

Maryse June 12, 2017 at 7:16 PM

*faints after Amy’s description*

Amy June 12, 2017 at 7:20 PM

Maryse…you know me well, my friend.

*holds out ‘gimme hands’ for the tequila*

*gingerly musses up Maryse’s ginger brows*


Amy June 12, 2017 at 7:21 PM

Thanks Jan! :D

bev June 12, 2017 at 7:33 PM

I never knew that was what it was. I always just thought it was a way of removing the hair like threading.

I believe Ela & I are both starting the new Keyes book tonight.

Amy June 12, 2017 at 7:40 PM

I don’t have enough brows to thread, wax, or even pluck. :(

Amy June 12, 2017 at 7:42 PM

So, who is going to read My Roommate’s Girl and let us know if it’s dual POV or just his POV?

Tessa June 12, 2017 at 8:17 PM

*grins and points to Bev’s post* Ela and Bev.

It’s funny, Amy. This is when my eyebrows start to disappear. By August, they turn totally blond, and blend in with my skin. *stares at her eyebrows* Bye bye eyebrows. It was nice knowing you!

Alright, so! Beautiful Player. I really like it, but I’m not LOVING it. I almost think it was jinxed because everyone loved it so much, and fell so far for Will that I just didn’t get the thrill. It’s still enjoyable though. :D And I’m almost done. Also, a lot of the end could have been avoided if they just TALKED TO EACH OTHER!

bev June 12, 2017 at 10:30 PM

So far just his pov. Only 14% in though.

sri June 13, 2017 at 3:41 AM

Has anyone Amnesia by Cambria Hebert… Its a new release..

Maryse June 13, 2017 at 7:51 AM

Thank you for that update Sri! I’ll add it to the list. Haven’t read it though.

Maryse June 13, 2017 at 7:53 AM

I think I’ll read it Amy. But first… SPECIES. :D !!!

Amy June 13, 2017 at 9:02 AM

SPECIES!!! YAY!!!! *happy wiggle dance*

That cover belies the weight of the story inside. Such great writing that I’m still feelin’ the feels all this time later…

Jean June 13, 2017 at 2:10 PM

My Roommate’s Girl is dual POV, but it takes a while to get to that point. Initially, it is only his POV. I was hesitant at first because I didn’t like him much….and redemption was looking tough in my eyes….but then BAM! something I didn’t see coming.

Maryse June 14, 2017 at 9:02 AM

Did you not like him much ’cause he’s a total jerk-face, Jean? I kind of like reading that…

Jean June 14, 2017 at 12:32 PM

I like jerk-faces too!! LOL!! Yes, he was pretty much a jerk in the beginning….but this book was just missing something. 3 Stars for me…..was hoping for more!

I just started Sugar & Gold and it sucked me right in!! Love her writing!
