Hello there, Lovely Ladies 🤗
Christmas seems to be in full swing here. Do you think retailers start earlier and earlier every year, or is it just me? Regardless, I LOVE the season and am looking forward to some serious holiday time. Yay! 🎉
Also, I’ve noticed, this time around, a LOT less Fifty hype with the advent of Darker. I wonder why. Yesterday, I posted the TV spot that was aired during the Latin Grammy Awards, but it seems to me that ALL sources of movie news are on the thin side. However, one fun thing we WILL be able to enjoy through all three movies is the virtual reality tour.

This week I read:
A Place in the Sun by R. S. Grey was a delightful little read reminiscent of Alice Clayton’s recent, Roman Crazy. This standalone is just the right thing to enjoy when you’re coming down from a book hangover. Thank you, Susan 😉
Sacking the Quarterback by Samantha Towle is part of James Patterson’s Bookshots concept. Supposedly they are “Stories at the Speed of Life” which basically translates to shorts. I understand the need for novellas, and who doesn’t like a fast-paced, action packed book? But if it’s to the detriment of the story, the pace so swift that there’s no meat, you’ve lost me. If you’ve read Samantha before, then I think you’ll agree, this one reads like a summary rather than a fully developed tale.
Unsuitable by Samantha Towle was an interesting departure from her usual vein. This had a much darker tinge, but (fortunately for me) not too dark. Parts of it reminded me of Fifty, and the buildup was awash with expectation and lots of ping-ponging emotions for the characters. Thank you for the rec, Katherine 😉
Currently I’m reading:
Managed by Kristen Callihan, book two in the VIP series. I LOVE this author, so I’m stoked to be back in her world.
Ha! This one made me laugh out loud!
As always, it was lovely chatting with you. Don’t be shy to share your latest and greatest with us, girls.
