I missed a week again. 


And I’m pushing up against deadlines for books that are due.  Lots going on with the end of soccer season and my mother in law being here from Mexico.  (I’m in Iowa, she’s in central Mexico, it’s not like running next door for a cup of sugar.)  I think that is all I can safely say about her because she said she does not want to be on the internet.  I’m thinking that means no pictures of her and the kids and all that jazz.  Kind of sad but must respect her wishes. 

Anyways, I schedule myself for a book a day usually and it’s a pace I can normally keep up.  This last week I have learned I need some bumper room for things like my MIL calling and saying I’ll be there Monday night, pick me up at the airport at 11. 

I read 5 books Wednesday and Thursday.  Seriously, up against deadlines.

She’ll be here until Wednesday so wish me luck on getting my work done.

With all that going on here is my list for this weekend.

I need to read both of these today as the review for the sequel needs to be up tomorrow.


Him by Carey Heywood


***NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestseller***
Sarah Miller hasn’t been home in seven years. She thought she could stay away forever. If it wasn’t for her big brother’s wedding, that is. Part of her even feels silly for staying away this long. It’s not like anyone even knew what happened. Well, except for him.
That guy. The one she compared all others to. The one who set the bar so high no other guy after him could even compete. The one who made her feel like anything was possible. The one she thought she would never be good enough for. The one she spent the last seven years trying to forget.
All she needs to do is make it through the next week without running into him.

Her by Carey Heywood


You know her side of the story, now learn his.

"It was useless. I felt branded beneath my skin by a girl who left without even saying goodbye."

When Will Price was assigned a partner for a sixth grade class project he had no idea she would become his best friend. After years of friendship, she eventually became so much more.  Then, one day she left with no explanation.

Will’s life shattered right before his eyes and he was left alone to pick up the pieces.  Floundering, Will must figure out a way to carry on, to find a way to exist without her.

Seven years later, a chance encounter leaves him desperate to get her back. He has one week to make her his again.  Not everyone gets a second chance with the love of their life and Will is determined to never lose her again.

The Faerie War by Rachel Morgan

Now I haven’t read the first two in this series, so I’m hoping jumping into the third book won’t be that difficult.


Violet Fairdale is in big trouble. Her home is gone, her beloved forest lies in ruins, the guy she gave her heart to has deserted her—and she doesn’t remember any of it. The powerful Lord Draven is taking over, brainwashing guardians into fighting for him. No one is safe from the evil spreading throughout the fae world.
As alliances are forged between the remaining free fae, Vi struggles to reclaim her identity and figure out where she belongs in this new world. When someone from her past shows up, life gets even more complicated. He brings with him a long-forgotten weapon and an ancient prophecy that places Vi at the center of the fight against Draven. With the future of the fae world at stake, can Vi carry out the prophecy’s instructions before it’s too late?

Then I think I’m caught up and don’t have to have a panic attack every time I look at my calendar so I am going to slip in this one:

Treasure Your Love by J.C. Reed

I have been waiting and waiting for this one, then somehow the release date slipped by me, but now I have it and I must read it.  This is one of my most favorite series.


The sensual romance that started with the New York Times bestseller Surrender Your Love continues…
Meeting Jett was like a drug. Dangerous. Addictive. And better forbidden. In his game, there’s a high price to be paid. But how much is too much?

Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, was never in love until she met the green-eyed, sexy as sin, six foot two sex god, Jett. The man to whom she surrendered. The man who hurt her once only to conquer her heart again.
Sexy, handsome, and arrogant Jett Mayfield knows he has found his match. Brooke is like no other woman he’s ever met and he has every intention of keeping her in his bed.
Their future seems full of promises…until the past is catching up with them and dark secrets threaten to destroy their lives. Soon they realize that to love means to lose, and some choices are harder than others.
When everything comes crashing down, can mistakes be amended…or will he lose her forever?
A woman who surrendered to love.
A man who would do anything to protect her.
Two lives that are about to be tested…and the last secrets laid bare.

I think that will do me for a couple of days. 

What’s on your list this weekend?

2013 Reading Challenge

2013 Reading Challenge
Heather has read 159 books toward her goal of 175 books.

I am almost there.  159 out of 175 books read so far this year and I’m 17 books ahead of schedule.  I would say that gives me wiggle room, but I haven’t scheduled myself much wiggle room through the end of the year.  A little crazy over here in my reading realm.
Are you almost to your goal?
Have a wonderful day!
