Between the covers book club and chapter 61

Hello lovely ladies.

I hope this post finds you well and enjoying a relaxing weekend.

Please find the latest chapter of Meander –  chapter 61 – in the sidebar. I hope you enjoy!

Then, I’d like to share some news. Apart from the upheaval that is to come with the imminent arrival of the silly season and the holidays, we are also moving! Yes, you heard me… again! And this time, it’s a big one. We are moving all the way to Queensland and it’s going to be an absolute whirlwind, with trips back and forth, and a mad schedule, so I really am going to rely on your patience where my story is concerned. I will keep you updated, as much as I can 😉


Then, onto our book club segment…


This week I read:


Beauty And The Feast by J.R. Barret. Susan passed this one one to me – thank you my friend! 😉 It’s not from an author that I know but I so enjoyed it. With the tumult of the moving news and being sick, I really appreciated the light hearted read. A great in betweener for those book hangovers and of course, it features food… my second love after books…


it disk1 Paola is on fire with her translating at the moment and has sent me chapter 59 in the Italian version of Meander.

I came across this, I thought it was super funny… Where raisins come from… or making grapes… depending on how you look at it! LOL!


Have a beautiful week ladies.

Remember to share your great reads with us!

Translated chapters

Hello lovely ladies,

I’m busy with the next instalment of Meander and you shall have it some time this weekend, provided all goes well. There is a 90% chance of a cyclone developing off our cost over the weekend so if you don’t hear from me, that’s why.

In the mean time I’ve posted the following translations:

it disk1 Paola has updated the Italian version of Meander with chapter 58.

ven button1 Kereny has completed the 9th chapter of the Spanish translation.

portog button The Super Hot Translators have posted two updated chapters for the Portuguese translation, Chapters 22 and 23.

As always ladies, thank you so much for your hard work!

Hello lovely ladies!

Thank you so much for all the well wishes. I’m feeling the love from ya’ all! 😉

First off, I’d like to wish someone well. A reader who has been following my story for a very long time is embarking on a new stage of her life. A true blue (or maybe Grey) FSOG lover.  Her colleagues at work treated her with this stunning cake at her farewell which, I can only imagine, must’ve been very hard. All the best for your new journey, I pray that you find joy in the service of your new role.

Then, onto our book club segment…


This week I read:


All The Pretty Lies by M Leighton. True to her usual style it was a sexy, action filled read. I really enjoy her writing and could easily recommend all the books by her that I’ve read so far.


ven button1 Thanks to Kereny I’ve just posted chapter 8 in the Spanish translation of Meander.


I hope you all have a beautiful week, hopefully I’ll be catching up with you by the weekend with an update.

Happy reading ladies,

Hello lovely ladies…


I’m so sorry to do this, but this weekend which was supposed to be dedicated to chapter writing, in now going to go into getting better… I’m sick! Nothing serious, but it does feel like someone scrubbed my throat with steel wool! Hopefully I’ll be back in action by next weekend 😉


it disk1  To the Italian readers, I just posted chapter 57. Thank you Paola.

bra button For the Portuguese readers, the Super Hot Translators has sent me chapter 20 and 21.

About the FSOG movie, the Laters Baby site posted this snippet…

“…On Friday’s show Ellen showed  a couple of recent special auditions from those hoping to play the lead in “50 Shades of Grey” — from none other than Alex Trebek and Al Roker!

It seems that Ellen’s production crew had some fun with editing in the latest video.

Check out the video via ’50 Shades of Grey’: The Auditions….”

Thank you Katherine for this link to Entertainment Weekly featuring our celluloid couple.

Also, it’s rumoured that Katie Holmes will play Elena… I really think that’s a very odd fit… Let’s see if that pans out 😉


This is exactly what my week was like! LOL!

I’ll see you on Sunday with the book club posting.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend!

Between the covers book club and teaser

Hello ladies,

I hope that you’ve enjoyed a good weekend. I don’t know about you, but the end of the year seems to be hurtling toward me like there’s no tomorrow!

My hubby took this picture for me today, a car parked at the servo to get gas… Gotta’ love the way Fifty has made it into the mainstream of society! 😉


This week I read:


Mine by Katy Evans. This is book two in the Real series. It’s seldom that I break out the Best Of The Best award. Book one in the series qualified, and so did this. I LOVE the way this author writes. Colourful, descriptive, pushing the envelope at times, but damn, she pulls it off! I LOVE! 


I’ve been so caught up in Katie’s work that I’ve not even bothered with a new book yet. I wish I could stay in Brooke and Remy’s world… This series is easy the best books of the year for me 😉


ven button1 For the Spanish readers, I’ve just posted chapter 7, thanks to Kereny’s hard work.


Here is a little taste of what’s to come in chapter 61:

“…He‘s gripping my hand, his fingers curled around mine in a death clutch as his eyes dart between the screen and the doctor. I can tell that he’s holding his breath, eyes growing larger with every second that passes…”


Love this! LOL!

I hope you know that I’m grateful for your continued support!

Have a great reading week ladies.

Between the covers book club, news and Chapter 60

Hello Ladies!

I hope that you’re enjoying a beautiful weekend.

Let me start off with announcing that Chapter 60 is ready for your reading pleasure! Unedited, so please be kind 😉

Onto some movie news, we have Victor Rasuk playing Jose Rodriguez and Jennifer Ehle playing Carla.

This week I read:


Driven by K Bromberg, book one in the Driven Trilogy.  This came highly recommended here on the book club last week and I was not disappointed. True to the strong male lead and the fireworks between him and the female lead plus a bit of drama on the side and you have the making of all that we love on a book.

On my shelf I have… (Almost!)


Mine by Katie Evans. I cannot wait! The Amazon release date is the 5th of November and I’m psyched! I adored her first book, Real and am looking forward to more intensity between Remy and Brooke!



it disk1 Paola has sent  me chapter 56 in Italian – thank you Paola

ven button1 Kereny has updated the Spanish version of Meander with chapter 6 – thank you Kereny


Thank you for sharing your great reads ladies! 

I hope you have an awesome reading week!
