Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗
My first week back at work and already I’m looking forward to my next holiday! Wowzers! How can one person be so damned busy?? 😝
Before I get into it I just want to wish my favourite Irish blogger’s hubby a speedy recovery. Hope the card makes sense, girlfriend. Google translate is not always the best source when it comes to language help! 😉
Then, I have some news. Sharon took this exciting screenshot for us, Erika tweeting that she has 3 chapters left to write in what I assume is Grey book 2, Darker from Christian’s POV.
On the one hand I’m optimistic. If she’s writing, hopefully it means that she actually wrote, not just swapped views like she did in book 1. On the other, I’m worried that we won’t get the MORE we’re after. Whatever she does, I predict we’ll buy it and devour it despite the content. But I can’t help asking myself if, from a writer’s creative perspective, that’s a good or a bad thing. Does the guaranteed mega sales make you lazy or inspire you to wow your fans? #GoodQuestion
Last week I reported on Passionflix adapting Sylvia Day’s Aftershock and Afterburn series for the silver screen. This production company seems to be the go-to guys for our genre books. They are the ones making Alessandra Torre’s Hollywood Dirt, Bromberg’s Driven series, and other stories including those from Rachel van Dyken, C.D. Reiss, J. Kenner, and more. BUT, and this is a big but, unlike what we assumed (or perhaps it was only me), these movies are not going to appear in cinemas all around the globe. Passionflix claims to bring us “Original content, turning best-selling romance novels into movies and series. From sweet and sassy to sultry and steamy, our originals will leave you gasping for more.” The catch? This is a streaming company, similar to Netflix. No going to the movies with your best gall, chomping popcorn while you watch your fav novel come to life, but it does stream said book to the comfort of your home for the bargain price of $5.99 per month. What do you think, ladies? Hot or not?
Check out the Passionflix’s Hollywood Dirt trailer….
This week I read:
Or I should say, “I hardly read!”? I did manage to finish Raw Need by Cherrie Lynn, book 2 in the Larson Brothers series, but just barely. I’m sad to report that this was the first book from her that I struggled to finish. I can’t say why, can’t put my finger on it, but it simply didn’t do it for me.
Currently I’m reading:
Dirty Girl by Meghan March, book 1 in the Dirty Girl Duet series.
On my shelf I have:
Rough by Sybil Bartel, book 2 in the Thrust series. Thanks for the rec, MAC! 😘
I’ll leave you with this useful advice for those of us turning the corner to maturity….
Let’s hope I find some good reading time this week! Have a beautiful weekend, girls. Let us know when you find a book gem.
