Oooh, happy Monday! I like the sound of lots up there!! :)

River Wild, You’ve Got Male, Wrong Bed, Right Roomate and The Consequence of Falling.

Jenn January 14, 2019 at 8:02 AM

Good Morning and Happy Monday! (or not so happy since it’s the beginning of the work week :-( )

Great List Maryse and the blurb of “Kidnapped” Yikes! I definitely want to read River Wild and a few others.

3 things:

1-I am currently reading “Behind the Bars” that Miss Picky Pants (aka-Leslie :-) herself has raved so much about and for good reason IT IS AWESOME! Note to self-when Leslie gushes over a book READ IT!

2-As many of you know my mother in law and her husband have been down in Tampa FL since end of October, and because they are having the time of their life they extended their stay to beginning of April-and than they are going to stay a month in Myrtle Beach so at this rate we might see them sometime the end of May except hubs surprised me and we are going to visit them next month-I am a little sad though as I will MISS my girls like crazy. From the time we got them till now the only time I was without them is when they got fixed at 6 months old, that was rough I cried myself to sleep that night thinking of them all alone. So this is going to be a week and I don’t know that I can do it. We are not putting them in a kennel the only way I told my hubs I would go is if they got to stay home and we had somebody stay at the house so a friend of ours is going to do that for us.

3-I saw The Upside with Kevin Hart over the weekend. I absolutely loved it! Not a Star is Born loved it but still really good!

Tasha J January 14, 2019 at 8:10 AM

Great find with the Bible, Maryse. I love that it has pictures too, how cool!
I think I’ll try The Consequence of Falling, sounds good and I love Claire Contreras.

I know I had a list of new releases for 2019 that I was excited for, but I seem to only be able to remember 1 or 2 anymore- hmmm.

I share kindle with my Mom and we now have Educated by Tara Westover with free audible (yea! even though my focus on audible is crap, lol) so hopefully getting to that soon.

3. And The Passage tv show releases tonight at 9 on Fox. I’m going to try and watch it. I was really into the book a while back.

Tasha J January 14, 2019 at 9:05 AM

Woohoo, The Consequence of Falling was Kindle unlimited. :D

Leslie M January 14, 2019 at 9:05 AM

Tasha, have you tried audiobooks using earbuds AND at same time doing something mindless like dusting, chopping veggies etc? I find using earbuds blocks everything else out so I can focus and it also helps if my hands are busy. It honestly is just a matter of getting used to them. I hated audiobooks at first.

Jenn, I am so happy for you and your trip! I remember you being sad about MIL leaving. It’s great that your babies can stay at home and not be uprooted. You guys reading Behind the Bars is bringing back all the emotions. I wish I knew why some books make me feel the characters so deeply. *sigh*

Ela January 14, 2019 at 9:20 AM


Maryse January 14, 2019 at 9:33 AM

YESSSS!!! That’s right!!! Thank you Ela!! :D I just added it.

Tasha J January 14, 2019 at 9:34 AM

I had earphones for my only successful audiobook, Salt to the Sea. I had to be doing nothing and it had to be quiet or my mind would wander. I could visualize it like a movie, Titanic like feels. I was driving the other day listening to Bird Box by myself and it went well. Quiet, doing things on the computer, folding launders (no headphones) did not go well. I don’t like not hearing what the kids are doing and they are literally always attached to me or talking to me or following me at all times so at this point in my life, they’re not going to work for me. Maybe 5 years from now. Lol

bev January 14, 2019 at 9:43 AM

1. Leaving the coffee at home so I’m drinking water all day instead. We will see how it goes.

2. Started my day with a light breakfast and daily vitamin. I just need to find more energy throughout the day.

4. Been walking on my lunch break. Only like 20 minutes but I noticed it helps with my mood for the rest of the day.

Robyn January 14, 2019 at 12:22 PM

Nevermore just dropped. It’s the next book in Dannika Darks Crossbreed series! So excited!

Maryse January 14, 2019 at 1:45 PM

Thank you Robyn!!! I’m adding it. :D

Ela January 14, 2019 at 2:02 PM


Tessa January 14, 2019 at 2:32 PM

It was really good. :) A lot of action, though I had some concerns. Talk to me about it once you are done with it, Ela!

“Nevermore just dropped. It’s the next book in Dannika Darks Crossbreed series! So excited!” Grr, how did I miss that? *one clicks*

Tessa January 14, 2019 at 2:35 PM

1. I was up late last night finishing Behind the Bars by Brittany C. Cherry. GAH, so good, though there was a very heartbreaking part.

2. My new headset came in! I paid extra for it to be green because, with the black one, it was hard to see the main button. I don’t care about seeing the volume or fast forward type buttons, but the main one is pretty important to see. The others will be used when it’s on my ear anyway so those are okay to know by feel.

3. I am now waiting on my fairy shirt. Because, fairy! :)

Theresa silverberg January 14, 2019 at 3:47 PM

Did I miss Marsye Best of 2018 list?

Maryse January 14, 2019 at 4:33 PM

Theresa that’s coming this week (likely Wednesday). :) It’s the last one.

Jan January 14, 2019 at 5:02 PM

Oh cute shirt Tessa. And yep, Maryse, that old Bible sounds like a really cool find.

I might read Just Come Over. I’ve liked some of her books. Hey, who doesn’t like a hot new zealand rugby player, right?

3 things:
1. We’re still in a mad heatwave here. 42 yesterday, 44 forecast for today, 46 tomorrow. EEEEEP!! Our air conditioner is working overtime. BTW that’s 108, 111 and 114 fahrenheit. Yup, I can hardly believe it either. They’re saying tomorrow will bust some records. We don’t usually get many days over 40.

2. I’m going to bake some Norwegian cookies this morning (before the house gets too hot LOL). Lemon and cardamom. I saw them on a cooking/travel TV show called the Hairy Bikers Bakeation. (IKR?) But they look yummy. (The biscuits that is LOL not the hairy bikers). Kind of shortbread.

3. I’ve been watching the latest Little Women TV series. It’s lovely. A fav book from when I was a girl and the series is done beautifully.

MichelleS January 14, 2019 at 6:05 PM

Tessa – LOVE the shirt, cause it’s, well a FAIRY!

Love the Crossbreed series. Must. Get. Caught. Up. Christian Poe is just so yummy with his accent & vampire hotness.

MichelleS January 14, 2019 at 6:09 PM

I’m currently reading Ruined (McIntyre Body Guards Series 6). Was on someone’s list somewhere! Loving it. It’s a m/m, done so well. AND it’s younger/older… loving it.

Grey January 14, 2019 at 6:17 PM

1) Keto…wow, um 8 pounds down week 1. (I know most of it is water but dang!)
2) I fear I’m in a dreaded slump.
3) I’m ready to start tossing glitter all willy nilly just to ward it off!

R. Renee January 14, 2019 at 6:37 PM

The new and improved Unbreakable by Emma Scott will be released January 22nd. In addition to a new cover, it’s being re-edited and re-formatted, and the epilogue “will contain bonus sexy-time.” :D

Also, the audiobook has been cast and Cory is swoony!

Tessa January 14, 2019 at 6:58 PM

4. The shirt came and the colors are more vibrant than I thought they’d be. :)

Maryse January 14, 2019 at 6:59 PM

I wanna see the shirt!!!

Maryse January 14, 2019 at 6:59 PM

Bonus sexy time is always a good thing! ;)

Maryse January 14, 2019 at 7:02 PM


I lost the weight I wanted to… and THEN some. I’m PAST my goal weight, and now I have to up my calories to not lose anymore. That’s something DARN fantastic that I do not count calories at all anymore. I started Keto May 2018. I will never stop.

I have never been so NOT bloated, swollen, bubbly-bellied, and awful feeling. I feel AWESOME.

Maryse January 14, 2019 at 7:04 PM


THAT. IS. HOT. Florida (at least my central Florida) doesn’t get that hot… barely ever. EVER?

Maryse January 14, 2019 at 7:05 PM

Jan your cookies sound delightful.

I miss a shortbread Christmas cookie (or is it a sugar cookie) that had Anise it it. I’m a black licorice fan, so these cookies rocked my world.

Tessa January 14, 2019 at 7:09 PM This is the shirt. It currently needs to air out and be washed. New shirt smell. *wrinkles nose* It smells like glue.

Leslie M January 14, 2019 at 7:18 PM

Tessa, totally weird but my son got a new shirt shipped to him the other day and it smelled like vinegar. Nasty! Why the heck would it smell like that??? I washed it twice.

MichelleS January 14, 2019 at 7:36 PM

Leslie – got a shirt from Amazon this Christmas that totally smelled like vinegar!

Jan January 14, 2019 at 8:04 PM

Ha ha ha. Vinegar?? What’s goin’ on down at that amazon warehouse???

Cheryl January 14, 2019 at 8:08 PM

Liking the sound of River Wild and The Consequence of Falling. Bonus that they are both KU!!

R. I had good intentions of waiting until the new Unbreakable was released. Then I was just going to take a quick peek at it and next thing I knew I finished reading it. Will still want to get the new one to read the epilogue. ;)

R. Renee January 14, 2019 at 8:10 PM

I saw that!! And I can’t say that I blame you!

Tessa January 14, 2019 at 8:39 PM

A bit of vinegar too. I think it has to do with the dyes and fabriqué in the shirt not being aired or washed before sealing.

Northernstar January 14, 2019 at 9:22 PM

I’m about 80% through Unbreakable and I’m loving it. I’m looking forward to the extended bonus sexy-times

Lisa V. January 15, 2019 at 9:08 AM

Plenty of great books to read.. I need help with a book I want to read but cannot remember the title.. ugh…

Maryse January 15, 2019 at 11:02 AM

Lisa V… what was it about? Do you remember any details? We’ll see if we can find it for you. :D

Jean January 15, 2019 at 3:11 PM

The Consequence of Falling….Mine!

Jean January 15, 2019 at 3:23 PM

Will my copy of Unbreakable be automatically updated? I loved that book!

R. Renee January 15, 2019 at 4:35 PM

Jean, Emma just told me the update will be available, so if you already own it, you won’t have to re-buy for new/edited content. But we aren’t sure if it’s automatic or if you’ll have to run a kindle update. I think it depends on your settings. If the new cover doesn’t automatically appear on release day, let me know and I’ll get instructions.

Jean January 16, 2019 at 9:43 AM

Thanks R! I think I’m set up for automatic updates….

Ashley January 16, 2019 at 2:15 PM

I just started River Wild and it’s off to a surprising start.
