Romance, Fantasy, Writing Books

In addition to the writing I’ve been doing and all the story ideas I’ve been collecting through July and August and likely through September, too, I’ve been doing some reading and thought I’d share what those titles are…

I’ve finished a reading a fantasy novel, A Court of Honey and Ash by Shannon Mayer and Kelly St Clare, and to be honest with you… I’m both looking forward to the sequel and yet, I’m not. I didn’t like the way the first one ended and had I known, I’d have waited until the whole series was available.

I’m currently reading Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury for nonfiction. I heard someone describe it as a love letter to writing and she was right. It is. It’s wonderful.

Intuitive Editing by Tiffany Yates Martin. Because I can always, always, always handle this better.

I’m also slowly working my way through Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. If I focus on it, I’ll not be doing any writing at all because I’ll be reading it and the two books that follow and re-watching the series on Netflix. So, I have to pace myself.

Not My Romeo by Ilsa Madden-Mills. It’s slow going, too.

I gave up on City of Sin by Ivy Smoak. I couldn’t get into it. At all.

I need to finish, at some point, Ruckus by L.J. Shen. This one isn’t reaching me the way Vicious did. Defy was really good…

I have The Love Interest by Kayley Loring and Magical Midlife Madness by K. F. Breene waiting to be read as well as The Law of Innocence by Michael Connelly.

There are a few on pre-order, too…

Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber

Gallant by Victoria Schwab

Kingdom of the Cursed by Kerry Maniscalco

And…

The Dark Hours by Michael Connelly.

Let’s not talk about the number of books already on my bookshelves (real and virtual), my library wish list, and my bookstore wish lists.

So many books… Man, I need a couple extra lifetimes.

If there’s anyone reading this, tell me what books your reading…

From Facebook to Your e-Reader!

I spent some time in the days leading up to Christmas sharing books on my Facebook profile. Most of them were with Kindle links, but I’m sure some of them can be found on other sites such as Barnes and Noble, iBooks, All Romance eBooks, Kobo, Google Books, etc… (more…)

Until December 5th.

And I have to warn you, according to one Amazon review, it’s Far Fetched. So, let that sink in before you run over to Amazon and download it. 🙂 I wouldn’t want you to be disappointed that it’s fictional and cute and naughty and not completely realistic. (more…)

Presents

I hope y’all had a great day. Seriously, I do. That’s not the false perky talking, either. For those of you that follow me on Facebook, you know what I’m talking about with the perky comment.

I said pictures, so pictures I’ve got…

A few presents aren’t in the pictures like ebooks and a cupcake notepad, gift cards to Amazon, Starbucks, Eden Fantasy’s, All Romance eBooks, etc… But, there are those things as well.

But, there’s a set of cupcake measuring spoons, a cupcake towel set (y’all had to know I’d include cupcakes somehow…), a can of Whipped Creme from Victoria’s Secret, wine glass flip-flop coasters… And of course, a Kindle! 😀

No need for any comments on this post, y’all… We’re back to normal now.

Have a great weekend and look for Snippet Saturday tomorrow.
