Morning! What a load of fresh shinies!

Leslie M October 9, 2017 at 7:01 AM

Happy Monday!!

So many good ones up there. Ugh! How am I ever going to finish my 2017 challenges when these shinies distract me??

Leslie M October 9, 2017 at 7:02 AM

Ela, Maryse is an evil book temptress casting her spell on all of us!!!

Nay October 9, 2017 at 7:19 AM

Good morning!! Happy happy Monday! So happy to be reading again!!!! :grin:

Maryse October 9, 2017 at 7:34 AM

Good morning everyone!!!!


Maryse October 9, 2017 at 7:35 AM

LOL Leslie!!!! :P

Lisa Aiello October 9, 2017 at 7:38 AM

That list is Yummylicious. I just finished Sick Fux…it came out yesterday, and I gobbled it up. It is definitely dark romance…all kinds of crazy. I 5 starred it. It certainly won’t be for everyone…but I’ve decided I have no soul, so I loved it. If one of your limits is sexual abuse of children, then beware, It’s not horrifically detailed, but it’s definitely there!

Maryse October 9, 2017 at 8:16 AM

YAY!!! Thank you for the feedback, Lisa!!

Ela October 9, 2017 at 8:31 AM

Don’t listen to Lisa this mind f*&k is for all the dark, psycho, killing for revenge loving readers! But yeah, note the child abuse and YES I STILL HAVE A SOUL, where did your’s go Lisa?

So Lisa? You wanna continue the “dolly” theme?

Grey October 9, 2017 at 8:43 AM

*sprays Febreze* Do you guys smell that? I swear I still smell skunk? *cries*

Tessa October 9, 2017 at 8:51 AM

*sighs* *sets aside the idea of Sick Fux* DAMMIT!

Fine! I’m reading my own dark book. :P Actually I am. I’m reading The Sect by Courtney Lane. I was reading it last night and I was on wonderous antihistamines, yet it was so twisty, I didn’t want to stop reading and stayed awake two hours after taking it! I had to read something light for a few minutes before falling asleep.

Lisa, they wouldn’t be so interesting if you didn’t have a soul. Now you might have a broken angst box or something like that. It happens to the best of us.

Tessa October 9, 2017 at 8:52 AM

Oh, and the CA fire is about 100 miles from here and we can smell the smoke still. 0.0

Ela October 9, 2017 at 9:17 AM

Tessa, run! You can come and stay with me!

Tessa October 9, 2017 at 9:29 AM

lol If it moves enough, I will. :) Right now, it’s a whole bay away. I’m on the south side of the bay, it’s past the north side. But the smell outside… How twisted am I that I like the smell?

Grey October 9, 2017 at 9:31 AM

Tessa… You can come to me… We don’t have wildfires… Just skunks. And really it doesn’t smell anymore, I just have it in my head that it does.

Ela October 9, 2017 at 9:49 AM

If you prefer Tessa, I can skunkify the area for you?

Nay October 9, 2017 at 9:50 AM

Grey–I can relate. We’ve dealt with the skunk thing many times and the nose seems to hang on to it forever! lol

Kooloo October 9, 2017 at 10:15 AM

Good morning girls!!! And Happy Canadien TURKEY Day!!! Food coma here I come *swipe drool from side of lips*
I would like to begin this turkey day by being THANKFUL for Ms Tillie Cole… for without her I would not have spent all night and into the weeeee hours of the morn’ reading her latest darkest tale of Sick Fux… it was perfect (5 stars from me too LISA!!!!) and let’s us not forgot to be THANKFUL for my dearest “twin” ELA and especially THANKFUL for MYRSE and her Blog for bring ELA and I together….

Kooloo October 9, 2017 at 10:17 AM

Sorry girls that was Alittle creepy BUT that’s what NO Sleep and sticking your hand up a turkey but will get you lol ;)

Ela October 9, 2017 at 10:22 AM



Ela October 9, 2017 at 10:34 AM


Oh I totally missed this!!!!!!!!!! I have a book twin??? But Amber is still my book soul mate…and Lisa, well she’s in a category so unique I don’t have a name for it.

Hey Kooloo, you on Good Reads???

Leslie M October 9, 2017 at 10:37 AM

Skunk…yuck! We have tons of those here (in my own yard too) and they are always spraying. It is so nasty. Its like once you get that smell in your nose, it takes weeks for it to go away.

Leslie M October 9, 2017 at 10:40 AM

As much as I want to read recent releases I have so many challenges/group reads to finish by end of year. WHAT IS A BOOK NERD TO DO????

Kooloo October 9, 2017 at 11:22 AM

ELA!!!! Sister from another mister… and mother Gahhhh
Lol yup I’m on Goodreads but have not friends :( or clue how to use it
But Find me! Kooloo is INUKTITUT for “Precious” and I’m originally the NORTH yup all the way uuuuup in the Northwest Territories!

Tessa October 9, 2017 at 11:46 AM

Awww Thanks, Ela and Grey. :) Hopefully, it gets contained before it can even think of coming through here. It’s still gotta get to San Francisco and Oakland before it even thinks of this area.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving all Canadians. :) Does this mean Maryse is having Turkey today too? I mean, why not%t! In my defense! The dark one said to bring the metal table and everyone either looked on in fear or anticipation. EEEP The easy book just had a car crash with 70% of the body burned. MUCH easier to handle.

Maryse October 9, 2017 at 11:52 AM

Oh wow Kooloo!! I love that sweet name. I already loved “Kooloo” but even more now that I know what it means and where it’s from.

Ela October 9, 2017 at 12:29 PM


Ela October 9, 2017 at 12:31 PM

I just did a book compare and look at all those simillarities!


Leslie M October 9, 2017 at 1:01 PM

Bev?? Where are you? I feel like I haven’t “seen” you lately and I am missing you making me laugh.

Ela October 9, 2017 at 1:36 PM

Leslie, if you haven’t already done so then go post your crush on the RL post…we can have some laughs…

bev October 9, 2017 at 2:58 PM

I am just not reading right now so do not check in as often. Today is the first day in weeks I looked at GR.

Maryse October 9, 2017 at 3:24 PM

OMG BEV!!!!!!!!!

I missed you and your fun conversation starters and your super-witty comments and observations and awesome book recommendations.


Kooloo October 9, 2017 at 4:16 PM

Ohhhhhh “Unloved” … only 11% in and I’m bawling my eyes out!
So good so good so good

Leslie M October 9, 2017 at 4:43 PM

Kooloo, I so want to read that one when I have the guts. It sounds so good.

Melinda October 9, 2017 at 6:11 PM

From Sic Fux
” To feel someone’s life drain from their body by your hands….,,,,. Bad, bad people who need to be plucked from this earth like the fleas they are…… it is ……..a taste of the divine”
How good is it…….. really enjoying this book. Like nothing else I have read.

Maryse October 9, 2017 at 6:50 PM

You Sick Fux lovers are making tomorrow’s reader recommendation highlights with THOSE reactions. HOLY. MOLY. I wanna squirrel again.

Tessa October 9, 2017 at 7:31 PM

Also to the Sick Fux readers, *hugs* Thank for the heads up.

Mine went weird. I’m almost done and still liking it, but it went lighter, than darker… Yeah. I like it but I think it fried my brains. After this is Definitely Dear Bridget. :)

bev October 9, 2017 at 7:37 PM

I miss you all too.
Just in a massive slump. *shrug*
We need to try and get everyone together for an epic br before the year ends. Where is Fabi? MichelleS?
What’s coming down the line we can all jump into blind? Roll the dice?
Just not this month…..cause Amy I’m holding you to this.

Grey October 9, 2017 at 7:49 PM

I’m reading A Charm of Finches… And damn, Suanne Laqueur doesn’t pull any punches, does she? Whew… I need Manny, the blankie fort a d Godiva… Stat!

R. Renee October 9, 2017 at 7:50 PM

Bahahahaha Grey. **Ignores request. Passes bottle of tequila**

Ela October 9, 2017 at 8:25 PM

From Sick Fux…..this made me cry!

“Tick tock,” I whispered to myself as my cheek moved back and forth along the oak surface of the desk. “Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock . . .” I kept my eyes on my pocket watch, pushing everything else out of my mind until I heard the bedroom door close.

Nay October 9, 2017 at 8:41 PM

Count me in as another Sick Fux lover! Brought out the vamp lover in me (no the book isn’t PnR–you’ll just have to read it to find out why!) Such a cleverly-written book. Putting aside the subject matter, which, of course, was disturbing, there wasn’t anything about it I didn’t enjoy. I’m really hoping she’ll write books about a couple of the other characters.

Grey–I’m so jealous!!!

Kathy P. October 9, 2017 at 8:42 PM

I need to read a pick me up book if any of you have recommendations. Our wedding venue burned down in the wildfires today as well as the hotel our guests stayed out :( So many have lost homes it is heartbreaking.

Kooloo October 9, 2017 at 8:49 PM

LOVED the “UNLOVED” yup yup Only 11% in and I was bawling (“your skin and bones, Brynn… It’s the dead-fiancé diet) – OUCH my heart hurt but then I was like where bleeep @#*% did this just go and then I was like ok I kinda like it here and it’s safe cause I KNOW where this is going… it even had me laughing out loud :) (sperm as “Tribute” -Bahahah) BUT then it was like – HUH. No I didn’t!!! I lurv it when a book surprises me like that!
I strong 41/2 stars fo surrrrr

Kooloo October 9, 2017 at 9:28 PM

Oh Turkey Day how do I love theeee… next year lets do it without the family Draaaamaaaa K?!? So I’m sitting at our long asss table eating big bird when all I can think about is how this kinda resembles one of Dolly’s Tea Parties… THEN we clear the table and bring out dessert and TEA and I was like “ok so I’m gonna go now…” lol
Sick Fux you in my head sooo good!!!

Tessa October 9, 2017 at 10:19 PM

Alright, The Sect was good, but right when it was getting to the point that I had to run away, it got “lighter”. Still dark, but it didn’t describe what happened on the metal table or anything else after that. I mean, no I’m not disappointed to not read her torture… but I kind of am. Reading that stuff just makes the angst go much higher, making me yell at the book, BEHAVE!

That said, still one twisted mind messery.

Jan October 9, 2017 at 11:42 PM

I am LOLing over all you Sick Fux lovers. To each her own. Although it’s not my cup of tea, it’s actually great to see you all owning what you like to read and not trying to pretend you wouldn’t read that kinda stuff. I think maybe since 50 shades became such a thing, a lot of people have become more out and proud about their book tastes, whereas before FSOG more people tried to pretend they were ‘above’ that kinda thing. Such tosh.

*passes out snuggie blankies and choccies to all the Sick Fux and Sect readers* There ya go.

Maryse, on my amazon (australia) the date for Roomies has been pushed back to 5 Dec :/ Oh well, hopefully that just means it’s gonna be a better book, cos (to my shock) I was a little disappointed in the last Christina Lauren one, TTYTT. (Dating You Hating You). Oh well. here’s hoping Roomies is back to the good stuff.

Leslie M October 10, 2017 at 5:36 AM

Ya, what Jan said! Book nerds be proud of your FSoGs and Sick Fux reads. ;)
