Hi there, lovely ladies 🤗

How are you this fine weekend? My first week back at work was CRAZY, but that’s noting new. At least I had a little bit of time to read. 👍🏻

So? Who is buying the Freed DVD when it comes out in May? Or will you be purchasing the digital release on Amazon or iTunes on the 24th of April?

Hhmm. I’m quite curious about the extras it may contain. 🤔

This week I read:

Rebel Heir by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, book 1 in the Rush Series Duet, was a good start to this range, but it did end on a cliffy. Luckily the 22nd of May is not too far away.

Currently I’m reading:

 

Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost, book 1 in the Night Prince series, might not be my usual genre, but as far as supernatural themes go it’s a lot of fun. It features a delicious vamper/fire starter that’s proving to be very entertaining. But more about that next week. 😉

Chase by Kylie Scott, book 3 in the Dive Bar series. The above pic displays the current cover, but is it just me or does the guy on it look like the slacker he portrays in the book? 😳 I have no idea why it’s put me off so much, but I prefer this one wayyyyy more:

Any thoughts?

Lastly, I found this: a brilliant way to smuggle your vino anywhere AND improve your bust size. #WinWin. Meet the “Wine Rack” (and the “Beer Belly”).

 

Yes, that’s not rack as in shelf but rack as in (.)(.) 😂😂 Go cool inventions for the win! 😎👍🏻

Hope you have a beautiful weekend, girls. If you find anything awesome to read, please share.

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Sadly my break has come to an end, but it was a fabulous one so I can hardly complain. A new term with all its new challenges await. 👍🏻

I saw this little pic and thought I’d share. Though I LOOOOOVE eBooks for various reasons you’ve gotta’ admit that a real paper book has its charms…

#Truth 😉

Then, Eloise sent me this clip. It sheds a whole new light on pole dancing…

It seems Britain does INDEED have talent! 😉😉

This week I read:

White Knight by C. D. Reiss was good. It certainly ticked all the boxes, and I can’t fault it in any way, but I was a tiny bit bored by the story. Usually her tales are so packed with interesting factoids, but this one was slim on the usually entertaining details.

Currently I’m reading:

Rebel Heir by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, book 1 in the Rush Series Duet. I’m interested to see how this range pans out as this duo typically writes standalone novels.

On my shelf I have:

Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost, book 1 in the Night Prince series. Thank you, Sharon for my gift! 😘 I’m looking forward to taking a walk in the supernatural world with you.

I’ll leave you with this funny – a little shopping confusion…

😂😂

That’s it from me, girls. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

My little break was lovely, but over too soon. And despite the rest I didn’t get to read enough. Oh well. What can you do? 😜

I don’t have much other news, but I thought I’d share this cute reminder of the joy of signs, thanks to Katherine.

Funny, huh? 😂

These last 2 weeks I read:

  

Witness Seduction by Elle Kennedy was a nice read, a good holiday poolside story.

With this Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas, book 4 in the This Man series, was a lovely surprise. It’s always dicey for an author to follow a hit series with a late edition, but this one did not disappoint. Jesse was as crazy as ever, though I must mention that the final twist was a tad unbelievable and left a few important threads flapping in the wind.

Sweet Life by Nina Lane, book 5 in the Sugar Rush series, was my second poolside read of the holidays. It was a perfectly acceptable tale, but nothing reeled me in. Also, the male character’s blood heated and boiled so many times I feared for his health. LOL! 😂

On my shelf I have:

White Knight by C. D. Reiss.

You gotta’ love design flaws. If you’re thinking of celebrating something these lights look like fun….

#FontChoiceIsImportant 😂😂

Lastly, I found this gem a while ago. Some people have all the confidence in the world! 😳

LOL! 😂

That’s it from me, girls. Have a lovely weekend. If you have any great reading suggestions, please share.

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

One more week to go before our school holidays start. Yay! 🎉 It’s been a helluva term. I’m more than happy to take a break. 👍🏻

If you’re a Jamie Dornan fan you’ll love these pics from the Daily Mail – all thanks to Lissa. 😉

She also sent me the following, an article in The New York Times discussing female submission in a world of dubious consent. I love the last line: “… – even if that includes permission to NOT ask for what comes next.” #FoodForThought 🤔

And I came across this sweet book truth. I’m sure you can relate….

😉

Let’s look at what my reading week brought:

This week I read:

The Man I love by Suanne Laqueur, book 1 in the Fish Tales series, was exceptional for a debut novel, but it was long. Some moments where intense, the dramas deep and challenging as they broke these perfectly crafted character’s hearts. I got a little frustrated with it in the end, but I can’t deny this author’s unmistakable talent. If you’re after an epic saga, this might be just the one for you.

Currently I’m reading:

 

With this Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas, book 4 in the This Man series, so far, is more than I could have hoped for. I hope I’m not putting the cart before the horse yet, commenting BEFORE I’ve finished the book, but what a wonderful premise. Jesse is madder than ever before, and I’m enjoying seeing him in his full, crazy glory. I also adore that the book is mostly written from his POV.

Witness Seduction by Elle Kennedy is the other story capturing my current interest.

Then, as I’m going away for the Easter weekend, I WILL NOT BE  posting on Sunday the 1st of April, so I’m sharing the April reads with you now:

These screenshots are taken from the Goodreads site and are therefore not live.

I’ll leave you in the hands of this responsible lady…

Whahahaha! 😂😂

Have a beautiful week, girls and if you celebrate Easter, enjoy!

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Happy St Paddy’s day to those of you who celebrate this fun holiday! 🍀

What an interesting reading week I had, but more about that later. And the reading joy only gets better with the help of Audible. I just love being able to go from reading to listening to my current book, all the while syncing my bookmarked place across devices and apps. Pure joy. I think Micheal Bolton says it best…

Funny stuff! 😂

Then, does your man need help finding just the spot when he goes down on you? Never fear, Lickster is here. An app that teaches you HOW to lick it right!

Whahahaha! I’m not sure about the wisdom of licking your phone from a hygiene point of view, but hey, anything to help the cause, right? 😂😉

This week I read:

Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid, book 7 in the Knitting in the City series was good, but didn’t quite reach the level of amazing I’ve come to expect from this superb author. I cannot exactly say why I didn’t fall head over heels for this one, but what can you do?

Currently I’m reading:

The Man I Love by Suanne Laqueur, book 1 in the Fish Tales series. I was super exited to start on this one, and so far I’m not disappointed. The writing is exceptional, the story mature, and the characters are nicely developed. It’s little wonder she made news with this debut novel.

On my shelf I have:

 

White Knight by C. D. Reiss and With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas, book 4 in the This Man series. The latter will only land on my Kindle app during this course of this coming week. Yay!

I got this cute joke from Sharon…

😂😂

That’s it from me for today. I hope you have an exceptional reading week, girls.

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Happy International Woman’s Day for this past week! 

I hope you reveled in all your beautiful female powers. 💕

In the spirit of celebrating all things female, I spotted this is a Wonder Woman graphic novel my daughter was reading, and much as I think pregnancy is a magical thing, I thought it was absolutely hilarious that Wonder Woman suffered the same preggy afflictions as us mere mortals.

LOL! 😂😂

Then, the Laters, Baby! site reports on the Fifty Shades Freed’s DVD release: digital on the 24th of April and Blu-Ray on the 8th of May. Check it out for the list of extras we’ll see on the disk.

This week I read:

 

The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz was a fabulous read but again a BIG departure from her Original Sinners series. And as a side note, recently I’ve noticed that she’s scaled down on the bedroom antics. This one is especially lite on the lovin’, but it didn’t deduct from the interesting twisty tale.

Scenes From the Hallway by Penny Reid, book 6.5 in the Knitting in the City series, was a very short novella filling in some blanks as the preamble to Marriage of Inconvenience. It’s definitely worth while reading this free book if you are into the series in general.

Currently I’m reading:

 

Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid, book 7 in the Knitting in the City series, and The Man I Love by Suanne Laqueur, book 1 in The Fish Tales series. I’m particularly keen to start on the latter. This author has won a slew of amazing awards for this debut novel. #ExcitingStuff

By now you are well aware of my love for animals, so this meme shouldn’t come as a surprise…

LOL! 😉😂

Have a brilliant week, girls. Hopefully you’ve unearthed some great reading treasures.

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Another busy week as we hurtle – headfirst to Easter. Is it the same for you? Time going faster and faster the older you get? 😝

And speaking of time, or rather age, I saw the following trailer this week, a movie about a mature lady’s book club who decides to read Fifty.

It looks hilarious! 😂 It is interesting to note that this Fifty related film is from Paramount, not Universal Pictures. 🤔

Unsurprisingly, Freed is doing well at the box office. Forbes reports “Fifty Shades Freed Tops $300 Million, Pushing Fifty Shades Trilogy to $1.25 Billion.” Pretty amazing for a story that got its start from Fan Fiction.

Then, the week before last we had a giggle about a cake/vajayjay faux pas, but then I saw this and decided that nature wins hands down when it comes to hooha looking creations…

 

And it’s not just the girls…

Whahaha! 😳😂

This week I read:

 

Rule by C.D. Reiss, book 3 in the Corruption series. It was bloody intense, and as always, her writing is exceptional, but UG! The female protagonist must be one of the most frustrating characters I’ve ever read. And if criminal life in the fast lane, inopportune nooky, and constant drama isn’t for you, steer clear of this story.

Kiss Cam by Anie Michaels was a very sweet read. It’s ideal for those times when you need a break after a hectic series and you’re looking for something lighter. Cam is the quintessential perfect boyfriend.

Currently I’m reading:

 

The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz and Scenes from the Hallway by Penny Reid, book 6.5 in the Knitting in the City series.

This tweet made me smile:

LOL! 😂😂

Have a brilliant weekend, girls. Let us know if you find something fabulous to read!
