HAPPY MONDAY!!! We have a few earlybirds to squee over (from some of our favorite authors like Melanie Harlow, Mia Sheridan, Kim Carr, Giana Darling, and more!!) This is one heck of an early bird list! Also:

Time for “three things?”

1.) One of MY Black Friday deals that I got in on is a King size mattress topper (all cushiony and billowy). YAY ME!! I’m gonna have an extra fluffy princess bed!!

2.) I had Thanksgiving with friends and family and the sides I brought were a success. YAY!! Fully loaded mashed potatoes were the favorite (and I mean FULLY loaded with all the yummy things) and I couldn’t even eat it… but I did. ;) Oh one day of a cheat meal every once in awhile is not a huge deal, right? How could I possibly resists a scoop of those? But I did NOT indulge in any pies or sweets… *sigh* ;)

3.) Since I was out all day for Thanksgiving, I didn’t make my usual turkey… but I did it yesterday. :) So Sunday was my own personal Thanksgiving (and this time, it IS Keto). Turkey and all the veggies (except noooooo potatoes), roasted Brussels sprouts, green bean casserole, and my favorite chicken gravy from Quebec. YUMMY!! Every time my sister or my mom comes to visit, they bring me a bunch!!

Good morning!! :) I’ve already done a few cyber Monday deals.

Haven’t had time to read with all the holiday stuff and snow removal. Going to try to get back to Look the Part audio today. Ooh, and I have to do Bev’s questions.

Tasha J November 26, 2018 at 10:02 AM

I’m searching through kindle deals now. Lol, I found the counterpart to The Magnolia Story.

So far, I’ve bought The Great Alone, Murder on the Orient Express, and Need to Know by Karen Cleveland.

bev November 26, 2018 at 10:17 AM

1. I became obsessed with Gin gin ginger apple chews this weekend.

2. I’m reading 2 books. Slowly but…..*high fives self*

3. This is the COTTAGE . I know I’ve posted it before….but love.

Tasha J November 26, 2018 at 10:44 AM

Ok, I’m done. I can’t buy anymore!! I also got Every Single Secret by Emily Carpenter, The Weight of Lies by Emily Carpenter and Now That You Mention It by Kristin Higgins.

Kathy P. November 26, 2018 at 11:36 AM

I am so excited that Roxy’s Warriors (Book for in the Bondmate Series) by Ann Mayburn comes out tomorrow. I have been waiting for this book for 2 years!! It is a Science Fiction series and not my normal reading but it is so good!!

Kathy P. November 26, 2018 at 11:44 AM

A couple of sales:
Ravensong by T.J. Klune (the book after Wolfsong) is on sale for .99. I am embarrassed to say that is still one that I have not read but will move it up now.
The Butterfly Project by Emma Chase is on sale for. 99. I read it on KU but this one is one I want to keep. So good.

Kathy P. November 26, 2018 at 11:45 AM

Whoops my bad, Emma Scott and not Emma Chase on The Butterfly Project. First day back to school for my kids and my brain is fried already!

Robyn November 26, 2018 at 12:33 PM

Maryse I have a book recommendation for you and everyone else. I just finished P. Dangelico’s Bulldozer, book 3 in her Hard To Love series. I also have read the first 2 books Wrecking Ball and Sledgehammer. These books are so good and funny. They hit all of the feels. I have decided that this author is a cross between Marina Zapata, Lani Lynn Vale and N A Alcorn. Broody H meets quirky h, they have altercations with lots of funny humor and angsty moments and eventually fall in love against all odds. perfect! You have to read these books!

Jenn November 26, 2018 at 12:42 PM

Good Afternoon

Maryse November 26, 2018 at 12:45 PM

YAY!!! Thank you Kathy! I added them in. :)

Grey November 26, 2018 at 2:39 PM

I’m. Not. Buying. Today. O.o.

Grey November 26, 2018 at 2:42 PM

No, I’m serious, someone stop me, I cannot. It’s bad. Anyhow, I miss you all. Nano has been taking up all of my free time and I haven’t read anything it seems.

Plus, I’m still kind of broken from Heartbreak Warfare…it’s taking me a long time for anything else to measure up. That reminds me. I need to open the challenge threads. I’ll do that today!

Amy November 26, 2018 at 3:06 PM

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah is 2.99, down from 12.99! :D

Three things:
1. My new favorite recipe! OMG the lemon garlic zoodles are AMAZING:

2. I’m craving peppermint hot chocolate.

3. I have to pick up a new extra-tall ladder this week so I can put up our Christmas lights this weekend. Because of course I can’t be happy with lights only on the lower levels of our roof. :roll:

Tasha J November 26, 2018 at 4:31 PM

Ok, after all that I’ve found my next read. End of Day (Jack and Jill series) by Jewel E. Ann. Seems delightfully naughty so far!

MichelleS November 26, 2018 at 5:03 PM

Tasha – I ADORED the Jack and Jill Series. It turned to be far more complex than you might start out believing. Just really amazing writing.

MichelleS November 26, 2018 at 5:09 PM

So I’ reading “Blind Reader Wanted” – it somehow came across my Kindle as a recommendation and the blurb sounded interesting. He’s a recluse and she’s blind, and he wants someone to read to him – you know, to “soothe the beast” – but someone who can’t see all his scars. Sounds pretty good, right? Well…. it;s okay. The writing is just not living up to my expectations. UGH. I hate when there’s a perfectly good story and the writing gets in the way. I will muddle through and see if it gets better.

MichelleS November 26, 2018 at 5:10 PM

ESPECIALLY when someone mentions something like the Jack and Jill series – with spot on writing, amazing characters, ups and downs, lefts and rights, steamy and funny at the same time. She can write about Jill checking her mailbox and makes it interesting.

I’m officially a snob. Only decent authors from now on.

Jan November 26, 2018 at 5:24 PM

Thank you Kathy. I’ve read the Emma Scott but for some reason haven’t got around to Ravensong yet. I’ve snapped it up now at that bargain price.

3 things:
1. The new Mary Balogh HR Someone to Trust rolled into my kindle this morning. I love preorders :D
2. No work today yayyyy!!! Gotta do some shopping this morning (just groceries) but I might sit and have a good ol’ read this afternoon.
3. I’ve got some Christmas fruit mince pies and shortbread I bought at at the bakery, so I might have one of each little yummy with my coffee while I read this arvo. The shortbreads are shaped like mini Christmas trees. I dunno, I think it makes them taste better. ;)

Jenn November 26, 2018 at 6:35 PM

I just realized only the first sentence of my post actually posted

Jenn November 26, 2018 at 6:37 PM

I give up it did it again only posted 1st line above.

Tessa November 26, 2018 at 8:07 PM

Grey, I’m skipping Nano this year because *squee* Finally reading my first draft. Well, squee that I actually completed it and OMG, it makes no sense. lol Oh well. That’s why it’s called first draft.

Nay November 26, 2018 at 8:33 PM

Happy Monday!

I bought my first official large bottle of peppermint mocha creamer today and got the Christmas tree up yesterday. I’m way ahead of the game compared to other years.

I thought I was over my slump, but alas, it appears not. I just want to DNF most everything. And all of a sudden, I feel like there aren’t enough minutes in the day to read anything and get everything else done. I mean, there are never enough minutes in the day, but I ALWAYS find time for reading. Giana Darling’s new one, Good Gone Bad, that I’ve been waiting months for came out over the weekend and I can’t bring myself to start it. I HATE when my book mojo is off–when my reading isn’t right, I feel like my life isn’t right!

bev November 26, 2018 at 8:38 PM

That is so cool all of you that take on things like writing or playing an instrument or etc.

When I was very young I used to write little stories, but now it doesn’t sound very enjoyable. It sounds like a lot of work.

JR November 26, 2018 at 8:41 PM

Love Melanie Harlow. That will be on deck to read next. Reading British Bedmate now (used to be Dear Bridget I Want You). Good so far but I’m a sucker for a British accent.

Nay November 26, 2018 at 9:11 PM

Me too, JR! British or Aussie–either really does it for me!

Cheryl November 26, 2018 at 9:49 PM

Grey I’m not buying either. Hoping for Amazon gift cards for Christmas. :)

I did some Cyber monday shopping today. Even got family christmas PJ’s- Elf and matching PJ’s for the dog! LOL.

JulieO November 27, 2018 at 7:16 AM

Started GOOD GONE BAD and am liking! Was in the mood for a biker book. She is such a good writer.

Comment section is set up differently Maryse. Lookin good.

Maryse November 27, 2018 at 8:54 AM

Is it, JulieO? Are you on a computer/laptop or phone? Maybe there was an update?

JulieO November 27, 2018 at 9:34 PM

On my phone. When started reading the comments they were laid out differently. Our names were centered above our comments without those little picture things next to them. Different font too. Then as soon as I submitted my comment it all changed back. Mystery to me.

JulieO November 27, 2018 at 9:39 PM

I was disappointed in BLIND READER WANTED also. You know how there are “B” movies? Well this was like a “B” book. I read it but promptly forgot about it till you mentioned it.

Maryse November 29, 2018 at 11:05 PM

ON IT Robyn!! I read the first one and loved it. <3 This makes me happy!!1
