Dear fellow book lovers,
I hope we’ll share many brilliant reads throughout 2017.
Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗
The Christmas countdown is so ON! The stores here are teeming with Chrissy shoppers, merry holiday makers are wearing bright red tans, and depending on where you are in the world, you may have your turkey stuffed, your prawns marinated, or your boerie defrosting. Ahh, happy days. I love the festive season ❤️
Next year, I reckon THIS will be my tree…
I didn’t come across much Darker news this week, but Universal was kind enough to release these two beautiful movie posters to me:
They do paint an enticing picture…
This is a fan made trailer, but I appreciate the drama of the opening scenes:
This week my reading was slow going. With all the playdates, Christmas shopping, and long list of to-dos, I’ve had very little time to spend on my favourite hobby, but let’s look at what I did get around to doing this week:
Currently I’m reading:
ShutterGirl by C. D. Reiss, book one in the Hollywood Project series. I’m just past the halfway mark, so progress, but not much.
On my shelf I have:
Hail Mary by Nicola Rendell – thank you, Susan 😉 You can never go wrong with a cover sporting a guy with big balls! LOL! 😂
I don’t know if our US contingent share the Nando’s franchise with us here in Aus, but for in case you don’t, the peri-peri chicken outlet is known for their controversial (but oftentimes, fall-off-your-chair, funny) ads. This one is no exception:
That’s all for today. I hope you have a good one 😘
Hello there, ladies 🤗
So? How many times have you watched the new trailer by now? See anything you love/hate? The Laters, Baby! site posted these (and more on their page) great new stills for us to moon over.
Personally, the scene where Christian breaks down, finally offering himself to Ana’s touch, is the one I look forward to seeing the most:
In other movie news this week, Taylor Swift dropped a hint that saw the Twittersphere explode. Marie Claire picked up the story of Darker’s newest song: Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik’s duet, I Don’t Want To Live Forever.
I found this lovely pic with the song lyrics on Facebook. Seems pretty fitting, huh?
And, if you still want MORE of Christian, Funko Pop! just launched their Christian Grey doll. These figurines are usually reserved for superheroes and the likes, but I guess, to us, CG is exactly that!
Then, Sharon sent me this: Buzzfeed shares more cringe-worthy sex scenes hailing from the written word. Again I selected my favourite…
Before I start with my reading week, and in keeping with my current festive season theme, I thought I’d share a little bit of what Christmas is like for us here where we NEVER see snow (or even cold) in December:
“Bro’s glistening… ” Whahahahaha! 😂😂
This week I read:
Womanizer by Katy Evans, book four in the Manwhore series, I gave a reluctant three stars. Following her recent, renewed success with Mr. President, I was very disappointed in the not only the shoddy editing (again), but the lacklustre story. This whole series, so far, has been a miss for me. 😔
Currently I’m reading:
Breathe by Kristen Ashley, book four in the Colorado Mountain series & ShutterGirl by C. D. Reiss, book one in the Hollywood Project series.
As no Christmas is complete without Santa, I reckon Charlie would make a pretty good one…
That’s all from me, girls. Let’s talk books and movie!
Oh my, oh my, oh my – be still my beating heart! It’s here! Finally we get a deeper glimpse into what’s to come…
Thank you, Susan, Kereny and the all the folks who sent me links via Facebook and Twitter. It was lovely to wake up to MORE of Darker. ❤️
SO? What do you think??
Then, lastly, Sharon shared this cool site: Seattle Independent Press (SIP). An interactive site where you can “register” as an employee to get inside info. Pretty cool, huh?
This is what I want in my Christmas stocking…
Have a good one, girls, and let me know what you think of the new trailer!
Hello there, girls 🤗
Just a quick one: yesterday Erika Tweeted happy news about the movie tie-in novel’s release! This new edition of Darker features Jamie and Dakota on the cover AND contains bonus material! Yay! Available for pre-order this week, or from bookstores in January.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty keen to see the extra bits! 🎉
Then, as we’re in the season, I thought I’d share this Christmas fail…
Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗
Along with my festive season banner and the start of advent, I thought I’d spread a little Christmas cheer…
Oh my… Santa’s helpers are lookin’ good! 🎄
Then, as we wait for the next trailer, I happened upon this exciting teaser on Twitter @LatersBabyFR:

This week I read:
The Red by Nora Sutherlin was delightful in more ways than one. Firstly, I loved the concept of a writer (Tiffany Reisz) publishing her character’s book under the name of said character. In the Original Sinners series, the main female character, Nora, is an erotica writer, and this book is HER “published” novel. The books are talked about in quite a bit of detail in the originating series, and I loved that Tiffany stayed true to how she described them then. From the dedication to Soren on the title page, right down to the content (a scorchingly HOT, one-handed read 😉😉) and style (still an intriguing plot in typical Tiffany fashion, but with a healthy sprinkling of otherworldliness), all worked together to make this story seem like Nora’s rather than Reisz’s. Then, contributing to the sensuality of the book, was the stunning cover: a matte sleeve that looked every bit as good as it felt. It’s been a while since I’ve handled an actual book (as opposed to the e-versions), but I thoroughly enjoyed running my hands over this one! Lastly, the publishing company listed on the cover is called the 8th Circle, another cute wink at the original series and the name of the exclusive BDSM club they call home. I can only marvel at her creativity and skill to bring this together so well. The release date is yet to be announced, but should be within this year. I am lucky enough to have read this advanced, limited edition, hardcover thanks to a generous lady in Florida who thought of me when she went ogling our fav girl. Thank you, Sharon 😘
Staying with Tiffany Reisz, I read Her Naughty Holiday, book two in the Men at Work series. Thus far, this range is much more congruent with the HEA, hearts-and-flowers side of our genre. It amazes me that she can be so quirky with the Original Sinners series, and then write something as sweet and light as this. Again, it goes to show how very talented she is.
Currently I’m reading:
Breathe by Kristen Ashley, book four in the Colorado Mountain series.
I hope you have a brilliant week, girls. Don’t forget to check-in to share your latest and greatest reads with us!
