Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Happy almost Labour day. I hope you manage to enjoy a well earned rest! 

I’m burning to hear some feedback from the Darker DVD release. So, if you’ve spent a recent cosy night with Christian and Ana, spill the beans, girlfriends! 🙏🏻

I love clever signs, moreso when they are Fifty related…


😂😂

My reading week was super slow. Work is just ridiculously hectic at the moment, but here’s what I got up to:

Currently I’m reading:

Twist by Kylie Scott, book 2 in the Dive bar series. Sadly, I’ve not gotten very far, but I’m not seeing the quirky humour that made me fall in love with her Sage Dive series. Time will tell, I guess. 😜

On my shelf I have:

 

The Hot Shot by Kristen Callihan, book 4 in the Game On series and Trophy Wife by Alessandra Torre.

Then, as May is about to dawn, let’s check out what we’ll be reading:

These screenshots are taken from the Goodreads site.

Lastly, Sharon shared this cute pic:


😋😂

Have a brilliant (long) weekend, girls. Let us know if you have anything fun to share!

Hello there, lovely ladies, from a markedly cooler Brisvegas 🤗 How quickly the season has changed! I’m not looking forward to the cold AT. ALL! ❄️

This coming week sees us remembering those who fought for the liberties we enjoy on a daily basis. Happy ANZAC day, dear Australian friends.

For the sake of a peaceful future let’s hope that the powers that be will always steer clear of war.

Are you excited about the digital HD DVD release this coming week? 

Don’t hold back on us. If you’re going to buy and watch in the coming days, please share. We’d love to know if the advertised more is actually MORE. Check out this behind-the-scenes clip from Darker and unlock the rest of Seattle Independent Press if you’re following that cool site.

The Laters Baby UK Facebook page shared this link from Oprah naming FSOG as one of the most addictive books of the last 25 years. No surprise there, but it made for an interesting read. Perhaps Lissa can shed some light on some of the more obscure titles? *hint, hint* 😉

So many books, so little time…. 💜

And speaking of books, Sharon shared this cute article by Reader’s Digest – Here’s What Happens When Bookstore Employees Get Bored:

Creative! 😉

This week I read:

Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward was another excellent standalone from this duo. They produce consistently good reads with the inevitable happy ending that melts like sugar in your mouth. I’ve loved ALL their offerings. And I love that Pixie the adorable goat made another cameo appearance! 

Currently I’m reading:

Twist by Kylie Scott, book 2 in the Dive Bar series. This is another one of my favourite authors, so I’m looking forward to spending some time with her imagination. 

On my shelf I have:

 

The Hot Shot by Kristen Callihan, book 4 in the Game On series & Trophy Wife by Alessandra Torre, book 0.5 to 5 in The Dumont Diaries series. 

Let me end off this post with a helpful bit of diet info:

Ha! See? The perfect solution to the Easter chocolate butt expansion problem! 😂

Have a lovely weekend, girls, and happy DVD watching!

Hello there, lovely ladies

Happy, HAPPY Easter if you celebrate the blessed holiday. 

LOL!

This last week also saw my birthday, and a friend in the know sent me this cute little gift…

*grin* You’ve gotta’ love how Fifty is EVERYWHERE.

Who knows how legit this article is, but Korea Portal claims that Jamie and Dakota are keen to make a fourth movie….

This week I read:

The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz was an exceptional book from a purely artistic perspective. The writing was clean and beautiful, the theme thought provoking, but if you love this author for her well-written, scorching kink, then this book does not deliver. Still, I give it my whole hearted seal of approval.

Currently I’m reading:

Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward.

On my shelf I have:

Twist by Kylie Scott, book 2 in the Dive Bar series.

Here’s a bit of amusing truth…

Have a great weekend, girls. Don’t eat too much chocolate!

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

So? Are you feeling the change in season yet? We’ve had a BIG and sudden dip in temperatures here in QLD. I’m in shock! I had to dig out my winter PJs. ❄️ LOL! 😂

I came across this on the Fifty Shades of Grey News Facebook page: David Ross on Dancing With the Stars in a Magic Mike routine…

Watch out for the cut abs T-shirt at the end! So cute! 😉

Then, not much is happening on the movie front, but I did find this fan-made exerpt from Grey…

Nice, but I’m a little surprised that we’ve not seen more fan-made clips for Freed yet.

Sadly, I didn’t get to reading much this week. Isn’t it a drag when real life gets in the way of your fantasy life? LOL! 😂

Currently I’m reading:

The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz. So far I’m hooked, if only I could spend more time with it…

On my shelf I have:

Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward. This one will land on my shelf by the 10th. If you don’t love this duo’s books, you can definitely enjoy the eye candy cover models! 😉

This made me laugh. Imagine owning this cat!!

Poor pussy! LOL! 😂😂

Have a great weekend, girls. Let us know if you find anything swoon-worthy! 😘

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Happy April Fool’s Day. Don’t let ’em get ya! 😂

Thank you for all your concerned emails and posts regarding cyclone Debbie that hit the top half of Queensland this week. We are blessed not to be anywhere near where most of the action was, but her aftermath caused a helluva’ deluge of rain and widespread flash flooding. So, I thought this pic fitting:

Then, the Laters, Baby site shopped around to bring us the who-has-what-for-how-much post regarding the Darker DVD. #GoodToKnow #DecisionsDecisions 🤔

As we are enjoying a short break this week, I’m taking my little munchkin to see the Beauty and the Beast. I can’t wait. I’ve heard some varied things about the movie so I’m keen to see for myself. I got this toe-curling pic from Sharon, not the actual actor who plays the prince, but damn, he certainly looks like the perfect “beast”! 😉

Before I get to the book club part, let me show you this super cool library in the Netherlands. The Dezeen site features the story of the “book mountain”:

Gotta’ love a country who builds a mountain out of books! 👍🏻

This week I read:

Addicted by Elle Kennedy, book 2 in the Outlaws series. I enjoy these post-apocalyptic stories, they’re well written if not a little far fetched, but like we said last week (and many times before), our whole genre veers strongly in the direction of fantasy. If you manage your near-future Sci-fi expectations, it’s a good read, but if you’re a serious futuristic fundi, this will probably be a little light in the pants for your tastes.

On my shelf I have:

The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz. I adore this woman’s amazing talent, so I’m looking forward to cracking its proverbial spine!

I’ll leave you with this funny pic – again from the evergreen Sharon:

😂😂

Have a fantastic weekend, girls. If you watch the Darker DVD, please let us know how it compares to the movie. Did it feel as fast? Is there chemistry between Jamie and Dakota?
