Lily’s Surprise Blog Birthday Party

in General

Ok everyone this has been a Cat and Bones weekend for most of us I think…. and if not – START READING THOSE NOW! Great series. So addictive. Love em. Seriously.

So today this blog is two! YAY! But guess what? I didn’t tell Maryse that I was throwing her this SURPRISE birthday bash! I just told her to be sure to be home around this time. Glad to see everyone came, and unless ya’ll wanna make a blood run, go easy on the supplies! That stuff is not cheap. Oh, and we recycle in this home so be sure to rinse your empty bottles. Whoever brought that were, I’m serious, she had a FIT the last time about the puddles on the rug – be sure he is housebroken. 
While we’re waiting who wants to talk about their recent read? I found out I am behind in the Night Huntress series – like I have not read Mencheres book or Spades book! I know right?! Well I went ahead and grabbed them this weekend and it was good. I haven’t finished Spades book yet (weekends are nuts for me) but I am loving it so far. 

I hope she hurries up – so everyone what are you reading? 

And I see you, over there. I know you are a lurker. Stop lurking! I want to know what you are reading, I am almost down to the bottom of my TBR pile!

Oh and I am giving away a doorprize! A $10 online gift certificate to either B&N or Amazon! Just leave a comment and the randomizer will choose a lucky commenter tonight (10pm EST).

Mom (Grandmaker) February 28, 2011 at 12:50 PM

I certainly could not miss leaving a comment to my grand-progeny’s birthday blog! it is so nice of you to do this for your Maker! I’m sure she’ll appreciate it… after she gets over the few extra spots on the carpet… I swear the weres are not mine… mine are at home being quiet, I couldn’t risk bringing them here and having this event spoilt by their merrymaking! well I’m still reading the dark fever series… unfortunately I forgot my book at work over the weekend so that was it for my weekend reading. I’ll get back into it today though (3rd book) can’t wait to continue! Luv U my little grand-progeny and thanks again for doing this for my baby’s blog!

I love my Grandmaker. She is the best.

Maryse February 28, 2011 at 2:20 PM

Oh!! I wanna comment! I’m reading two books at the same time!! Yup, I’m being super indulgent, since I didn’t get to read all weekend, and i’m already almost done both of ‘em.

Fast, action packed and steamy – the latest Cat and Bones “This Side of the Grave”


sweet, romantic, funny, and I’m already so attached to these characters, Molly Harper’s “How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf” – I feel at home with them, and it’s the perfect wind-down book after a long work weekend.

Oh and hey WOW!! Thank you Lily for the surprise party – toooo cool! Hehehe

I read Tempted by Megan Hart and Dreams of a Dark Warrior by Kresley Cole this weekend. Tempted was really good and Kresley has not written a book I have not loved and I definitely loved this one!
Happy Blog Birthday Maryse! Much Love :)

Happy Blog Bday!

I just had my blog o versary too but I didn’t do anything for it! Opps!

I’ve only read the first 2 books in the Cat and Bones series so I have some catching up to do as well!

I’m currently reading Delrium by Lauren Oliver and I’m “re-reading” KMM’s Fever series via audio. I’m on Faefever.

Kay February 28, 2011 at 2:44 PM

Happy Birthday, Maryse!!

I’m currently reading Psy-Changling #3, Caressed By Ice by Nalini Singh. I’m loving it so far.

I did finish This Side of the Grave last week and it was great. So thankful to finally get my BONES fix.

Courtney February 28, 2011 at 2:45 PM

Jackie February 28, 2011 at 3:10 PM

Hi all – I’m reading The Dark Hunters. Took a time out one day last week to read the new Night Huntress , but otherwise Its back to back Dark Hunter. Just started Ravyn’s story. Have a fun party you lot – sadly I have to go out for a while now. Don’t get too drunk!

LilyofDarkness February 28, 2011 at 3:14 PM

Jackie – Ravyn is one of Maryse’s book boyfriends! Watch out!

I am so glad everyone is showing up to hang out!

Maryse February 28, 2011 at 3:22 PM

If he is anything like that book cover…wow – that is one of my all time favorite covers. Ravyn *sigh* – oh oh!! and he likes to chuckle seductively in his woman’s ear…after they, you know…snuggle ;)

Is it hot in here?

Lis February 28, 2011 at 4:42 PM

Happy Birthday, Maryse’s blog baby. I am reading the last book (or rather the most recently published) in the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole, Dreams of a Dark Warrior. I must say that I’ve enjoyed these books emensley. Next I will be starting the Dark Hunter series. All.19. OF. THEM. Whew…getting tired just thinking about all those books. I used to never keep lists. Just keep the authors and when something was going to be released in my head. Now since visiting this site, I have a 5 page list of books to read!! Ok, I think I need a drink now. Whatcha got?

Robin K February 28, 2011 at 5:20 PM
