HAPPY LABOR DAY & good morning everyone!! Yes, I’m a little late with today’s list, still in “Labor Day” weekend mode, all sleepy and content while I search out some fun sounding earlybirds, and then get back to my own reading. ;)

Time for three things?

  1. I cheated on my Keto life for one day (only one day – the first time since I started) and had the most delicious pizza I’ve ever had from a place called “Grimaldi’s”. Loaded in meat, but super-thin crust so the damage wasn’t TOO bad. It was so worth it, too. ;)
  2. I can’t wait for it to start being cooler here in Florida. I’m so anxious for that crisp, cool breeze, and the scent of fall and woodburning stoves in the air. Also pumpkin and cinnamon smells. OH YES!!!!
  3. This has been one of the rainiest summers I can remember here in Florida. Pouring rain almost each and every day (not all day) but torrential pouring in the evenings for hours (and late at night while I sleep) and I just checked out my baby citrus trees that I sprouted from seed, and they are doing phenomenal!!!


  1. Flirting with Forever by Kendall Ryan <— KENDALL RYAN’S LATEST IS LIVE!! BEST FRIENDS ALERT!! Best friends but he’s been crushing on her for years… “…She doesn’t have a clue I’ve felt this way about her for years. Until one night after too many cocktails, we fall into bed together. I’m flirting with my forever…she just doesn’t know it yet...”
  2. Leather and Lace (The Virgin Diaries Book 2) by Lauren Landish <— HER BOSS WANTS HER… “...Long ago, I decided to save myself for The One. He’s out there somewhere, that special man worthy of getting between my legs and someday I’ll find him. But what do I do when my new boss decides he’s the one deserving of that honor?…”
  3. Labor Of Love by Alexa Riley <— LIVE!! ALEXA RILEY ALERT!! SHE’S ON THE RUN & HAS AN ACCIDENT… “…After an accident wipes out her memory she finds herself saved by someone unexpected. Orlando is just trying to live a quiet life alone and away from the world. Until one day she comes into his life and turns it upside down. He’s never lied like this before, but he can’t let her slip away…”
  4. Broken: (Standalone Bad Boy Romance) by Vivie Rock (Author) <— LIVE!! SHE’S IN LOVE WITH A PRISONER… “…Gorgeous, intense and emotionally distant. Covered in ink, scarred inside and out. A bad man with scary friends. Imprisoned for a violent crime he may or may not have committed. Now he’s out of prison, and back in my life…”
  5. There We’ll Be by Brittany Carter <— THEIR FAMILIES HATE EACH OTHER… “...Josie Sawyer never thought she’d be on a plane, flying back to Arkansas for the summer, only a year after her heart was crushed into a thousand pieces by the boy her parents forbade her to love. But her father is dying, and being stubborn isn’t an option. In a town this small, it’s only a matter of time before she runs into Boone Cross…”
  6. That Night In The Bahamas (BWWM Romance Book 1) by Kimmy Love <— SINGLE MOM HAD A FLING… “...have a fling she did. A very passionate one at that. However, she didn’t bargain on this gorgeous man coming to visit her in Detroit to carry on their affair. Only problem was that Dee never told him about her daughter. And that was not the only secret she kept from him...”
  7. His Father by A. E. Murphy <— JUST WENT LIVE & IT SOUNDS JUICY!!! SHE NEEDS TO STAY OUT OF HIS WAY… “…He’s rude, mean, and looks at me like he hates me. And I’ve only just stepped into his house. Spending a year of travelling through impoverished places, trying to help people, should make handling Sargent Wolf—yes that’s his name—a piece of cake. But even Maddox can’t deny that his father is an absolute douche. I’m only here for six months maximum before I get my arse back on the road. I’ll just have to stay out of his way…”
  8. One Last Wish by Aurora Rose Reynolds <— LIVE!!! AURORA ROSE REYNOLDS ALERT!!! THE LOVE OF HER LIFE IS DYING… “…He wished for me to find the strength to move on. I told him his wishes were pointless, because happiness wouldn’t exist without him. I found out soon after he passed away that I was pregnant. But I had no idea his final wish would bring me something I never thought I’d find again…”
  9. Game On: Out of Bounds Novel by Tracy Solheim <— FOOTBALL STAR PLAYER ALERT!! “…Working for the Blaze, Carly March knows too well how jocks think—and what they think with—so she’s always made a point of keeping ballplayers at arm’s length. But when she shares a kiss with the devilishly handsome Shane, she finds it hard to play by her own rules—and even harder to resist him...”



For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free audiobooks deal —>

  • AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans all of your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!

Happy Labor Day! It’s raining here today, too. And I’m getting over a cold just in time to go back to work tomorrow – boo.

I’m excited because Hard Sell by Lauren Layne goes live at midnight – loving this new series!

JR September 3, 2018 at 10:00 AM

Wait – was I first today?!? Let go run get a glitter bomb…

R. Renee September 3, 2018 at 10:16 AM

Happy labor day!

1. I just started Until it Fades and I’m loving it so far. It’s my first “library book” so yay!!
2. I had cheese tots and a banana milkshake for dinner last night!
3. I’m doing nothing but writing today.

Maryse September 3, 2018 at 10:21 AM

JR WAS FIRST!!!!!! :) What color of glitter shall we choose?

Maryse September 3, 2018 at 10:22 AM

R… I had chocolate covered Banana Ice cream for dessert (although it’s “Halo Top” so it’s good for Keto). I LOVE IT!!

R. Renee September 3, 2018 at 10:31 AM

I love banana stuff!! The banana they used was too fresh though so it wasn’t as sweet as it should have been.

Steph N September 3, 2018 at 10:33 AM

Happy Labor Day!

1-I’m relaxing and reading today. Alternating between “The One” by John Marrs and “Beauty’s Release” by Anne Rice, both are Library loans.

2-Currently eating boring eggs and grits and thinking I wish I had some scattered/smothered/covered

3-Can’t wait for fall type weather either which you know Maryse is only the 80′s rather than the 90s here in Florida

Steph N September 3, 2018 at 10:34 AM

Oh, I forgot to involve myself in reading challenges on Good Reads this month so my personal goal it to read some of my KU that has been sitting there for way too long!

Tessa September 3, 2018 at 11:10 AM

I got to say, I LOVE the Fallen Crest series, but the emotional backfire of NIghtmare has me re-reading. I needed something that made me happy. That book left me really unhappy. I found I can’t even read Christopher Pike level horror when it comes to adored characters. :(

Maryse September 3, 2018 at 11:11 AM

smothered ‘n covered… you are speaking my language Steph!!!! I’m tempted to make a “fully loaded” cauliflower casserole (heavy cream and cheese and bacon and green onions and… Oh I could just eat it right now!!)

Maryse September 3, 2018 at 11:12 AM

Maybe I can throw in some chicken in there too, and make it a complete meal. Yep. I think I’m gonna do it.

Leslie M September 3, 2018 at 11:29 AM

Steph, if you still want to participate in the challenges in Maryse’s book blog, you can. The TBR one you can join anytime. If you want to do “pick for me”, I will pick with you. I dont mind having another one to read. The ATF challenge is my faves for this month. So if you want to do that one, I got lots of my faves to choose from!! ;)

bev September 3, 2018 at 11:49 AM


R. First ever??? Like in your whole life!?
I had an awesome library with no book restrictions. I remember coming out and running into someone I knew and trying to make my stack of 12 (around there) books look less conspicuous, lol.

R. Renee September 3, 2018 at 11:54 AM

I borrowed actual books from my school library, but none since graduating, and this is the first e-book borrow!

bev September 3, 2018 at 11:55 AM

1. Every time someone kills off Gong Yoo they kill a bit of my soul.

2. No one wants to do any BWs, cause they are all readers now. And they point and laugh at me.

3. I’m out of coffee.

Tessa September 3, 2018 at 12:38 PM

1. Little dude woke up too early and fell 20 min ago. Now he won’t wake up.

2. I’ll buddy watch The Challenge because Bananas.

3. Went to Target yesterday and no pumpkin spice creamer yet. I want my creamer!

R. Renee September 3, 2018 at 12:40 PM

I love that Bananas too! God it’s been years since I’ve watched that show!

Jenn September 3, 2018 at 1:33 PM

Happy Labor Day!

I am loving my day off; however it is so hot, 91 With the humidity it feels like 98. So glad I walked my dogs very early this morning.

1. Funny bananas have been mentioned as I made banana bread this morning-Yum

2. Went to my first ever Chicken Wing Festival Saturday and tried so many different sauce flavors…. blueberry/ raspberry absolutely amazing.

3. Currently reading “ Accidents in Marriage” curled up on couch with my dogs.

Tasha J September 3, 2018 at 1:58 PM

1. My Dad brought me a ton of fresh produce this morning and now I’m trying to use it up before it goes bad. Watermelon smoothies, blts, and chicken zucchini bake.

2. The local chocolate shop just released all their fall drinks and treats and I’m dying to go even though it’s so hot out, I can actually feel my skin cooking.

3. Ever since I opened my mouth about J’s sleeping, he’s back to tossing and turning all night and night time feeds. And I brought out the exersaucer today, cuz he’s a big boy now. *sniff*

Traci b. September 3, 2018 at 2:08 PM

It has been a very rainy summer here in Delaware too. That’s why I am so not ready for summer to be over. It officially won’t be over for a few more weeks at least. I finished Made Mine this morning. A crossover book between Lucy Lennox’s Made Marian series and Sloan Kennedy’s Protectke series. It’s a MM Romance. So good…Trying to find something else even though I should be cleaning

JR September 3, 2018 at 2:21 PM

Orange glitter of course for fall!

I just finished Some Sort of Crazy by Melanie Harlow. Not sure why I started with book 2, but it was a fun read. Just started #Lie by T. Gephart. I’m enjoying some quiet unproductive time today. (Unless reading counts as productive)

Maryse September 3, 2018 at 2:52 PM

*wishes to snuggle Jasper*

Maryse September 3, 2018 at 2:53 PM

Jenn…. I’m a chicken wing addict. That would have been HEAVEN for me!!!!

Jan September 3, 2018 at 7:09 PM

Maryse it sounds like you really enjoyed that forbidden pizza. A little break out from a diet now and then isn’t always a bad thing, anyway.

1. I’m going out later this morning to catch up with some old friends at a cafe where they make the best coffee.
2. It’s a glorious spring day here today. Yes, it’s spring! Yay. And not working today either. Double yay!
3. The new Christina Lauren shiny about Josh and Hazel has downloaded onto my kindle so I’m gonna start that later today. :D

Amy September 3, 2018 at 9:34 PM

I am soooo late to the party (caught a bug and slept most of today), but can I still join in on three things?

1. I love Halo Top ice cream! I can indulge without the guilt.

2. Hubby brought me donuts from Voodoo Donuts in Portland, and let’s just say my cheat day has been enough to last for the next 6 months. *sigh*

3. I wore knee-high boots and a light sweater yesterday (3/4 length, but still), and I am SO ready for Fall!!!

Melinda September 3, 2018 at 10:18 PM

I have just finished a fantastic book. You know the one, can’t go to bed, walking around with book in hand. And the annoying family that make you reread the same page 10 times.

Drum roll it’s called “Binding 13” recommended by Jan easy 5 stars. I loved it. It’s a rugby player book. The book is written really well. I think it’s 825 pages. The author is Chloe Walsh.

bev September 3, 2018 at 11:11 PM

Jan it just came in on my kindle too.
