It’s Monday, what are you reading? (10/19/2020)

I love fall! The weather has finally gotten a little bit cooler and you can feel that winter is not too far off. It was a weekend that felt somewhat normal running errands, shopping at the store, and hunkering down to read. I finished a book that I’d been reading all week and have started the next on my list. I’m still not reading anything too serious because my mind just isn’t into the struggle of focusing and retaining something more strenuous. Is anyone else still having this problem? It’s frustrating! Anyhow, here’s the lowdown.

A very cute romance set around the food truck scene. I liked the characters a lot and the food sounded delish!

JUST STARTED

I’ve loved the previous novels in this series and am excited to have gotten an ARC for this one! It comes out this week so I need to get a move on!

Tell me, what books have you read or are you reading this week? A cozy mystery? A classic novel? Or are you curled up with an old favorite?

I re-read this novel by Kristen Ashley. It had been a few years since I’d read it and I wondered if my feelings for it would have changed at all with a second read. Nope! I may write a review for this one, so hang tight!

JUST STARTED

I’ve had this one on my wishlist at the library for awhile and thought this weekend my be a good time for a light hearted romance! So far, I like it! It’s very light and sweet. The perfect start to my week!

What book is giving a kick start to your week?

I did get a good bit of reading in this last week despite a crazy work week and some more birthday shenanigans at home. In my family all of my siblings, my husband and my mother’s birthdays are within six weeks of each other so we seem to have a party almost every weekend. (Yes, socially distanced, we all live together!) Let’s catch you up on what I’ve been up to!

I’ve read this series but saw the audiobooks up for sale and picked them up. I’ve been enjoying them all again, wrapping up with the third, Wayfarer’s Keep. This author writes so well and keeps me entirely entertained!

JUST STARTED

I love books about young women finding their power. I’m curious to see how she uses her new found confidence! This one is off to a quick start and I like the author’s voice so far!

Now that you know what I’m up to, catch me up on the books on your nightstand!

Happy Monday!

Another weekend that went by way too quickly! I had a chance to read an Arc and also listen to a book, but would’ve liked to lay on the couch and have a good read. Here’s a quick glance at what I’m reading.

I loved the first in this series and couldn’t wait to get started on Well Played. Another romance in a Renaissance Faire setting. Too cute!

JUST STARTED

I love this rock star romance series by Mary Ann Marlowe! I’m late getting to this one as the book came out last week, but am eagerly anticipating a fun story with characters that will surprise me!

It’s Monday! What book are you starting your week reading?

Have a great week!

Here in the US, today we celebrate Labor Day. A national holiday where we celebrate the contributions and achievements of all American workers. If you live in the US, enjoy your day off, spend it with family, and if you have a spare moment, enjoy that book you’re reading!

When I’m feeling stressed and just want to relax with a good book I seem to be turning to historical romances as my way to escape. Daring and the Duke, the third novel in the Bareknuckle Bastards series was entertaining and more importantly because of my busy schedule, didn’t take a lot of time to read. 🙂

JUST STARTEDO

I actually haven’t even started this one yet, but I’m so excited to read it! I loved the first novel, Well Met, and have been eagerly anticipating this release. What’s not to like about a romance set during a Renaissance fair?

I will definitely be diving into the above book because I have LOTS of free time today! yay! What will you be reading today?

Have a great week and happy reading!

Another weekend is behind me, but also a couple of good books! Recently I’ve been revisiting a few old series by listening to their audiobooks. Isn’t it nice when a narrated book is just as good as the voice inside your own head?

The Hollows is one of my all time favorite paranormal series. After reading the surprise addition to this series earlier this year I decided to start it all over again by listening to the audiobook. Boy, was this one well done, and the book is still superb!

JUST STARTED

I’ve had this book for a couple months and have finally gotten the chance to pick it up and start it. I really just started this book, but expect it to be just as good as all of the previous novels. I can’t wait to dig in!

It was a really hot weekend in Nashville which means I stayed inside and read a book. (OK, I also got hooked on a reality show on the History channel called Top Shot, but that’s another story.) I trolled through the hundreds of books I had on my Kindle because I am ahead on my Arc’s and had time to read something for pleasure. That is always a great feeling!

I bought this book back in 2018, which is probably the last time I’d read a Suzanne Wright novel. I had forgotten that her books centered on the physical relationship, then gave you a side of story. If you like sexy paranormal then one of her books has probably crossed your path. There are six books in this series, so if you like demons and don’t mind a LOT of sex scenes this book may be the right one for you.

JUST STARTED

It’s back to the ARC schedule for me, and this is one I’ve been totally excited about reading. Spells for the Dead is the next installment of Faith Hunters Soulwood series. One I’m a HUGE fan of! Excuse me while I go and read for a bit.

I’d love to hear what book is tempting you away from your work this fine Monday. Share in the comments!

I had just finished a book when a big storm came through knocking out our power. Needless to say, that cut down on my reading as it was just getting dark. We had enough juice in a laptop to get on Netflix and start streaming The Crown. Very Good! It was kind of a nice way to end the weekend, truthfully. We put the devices down and just enjoyed each others company. Despite that, I did read a wonderful book this weekend and have plans to start a next novel.

This book took me totally by surprise! The set up was totally unique, the characters completely charming, and the emotions? Yeah, they were all there. Loved it.

JUST STARTED

I haven’t started it yet, and may change my mind, but My library loan is just about to run out. It’s going to come down to whether I think I can finish it in time!

Now you know what I may be reading. What’s first on your TBR?
