It’s Saturday, my favorite day of the week. What are you up to today?
Today is my chill day. Reading, writing reviews, browsing Pinterest, IG and Goodreads. Just a relaxing day, with nothing special on the calendar. I might even stay in my pjs ALL DAY LONG. Hands up if you are staying in pjs too!!! So, how about you? Are you between books like me and deciding on your next novel to read?
I’m always looking for something special to read. I just added a book to my best of 2019 list - I’m pretty happy about that. But I could use a couple more on that list - lol. So, my search goes on.
Thanks to @tlcbooktours, and @avonbooks for this free copy. Because now I have this beauty on my tbr. The Right Swipe by @alisharaiwrites sounds like something I’ll enjoy. I’ve heard only amazing things about this author so far, and I’m excited to finally read one of her novels. And online dating has always been a fun kind of trope for me.
Rhiannon Hunter may have revolutionized romance in the digital world, but in real life she only swipes right on her career—and the occasional hookup. The cynical dating app creator controls her love life with a few key rules:
Nude pics are by invitation only
If someone stands you up, block them with extreme prejudice
Protect your heart
Only there aren't any rules to govern her attraction to her newest match, former pro-football player Samson Lima. The sexy and seemingly sweet hunk woos her one magical night... and disappears.
Rhi thought she'd buried her hurt over Samson ghosting her, until he suddenly surfaces months later, still big, still beautiful—and in league with a business rival. He says he won't fumble their second chance, but she's wary. A temporary physical partnership is one thing, but a merger of hearts? Surely that’s too high a risk…
Currently listening to The Right Swipe🥰

I Hate You by @ilsamaddenmills 💖 . “She knows my heart. Her name is written there.”
Case of hate & lust; delicious hate to love story - and absolutely fell in love with it. It’s the perfect opposites attract story.. .
Charisma is the girl Blaze once couldn’t get far enough away from to become the woman he couldn’t get close enough to. “Fire in my hands”….the one he can’t go on without. He is so attracted to Charm and so unsure of what to do next. Football is first, it has to be?! It was ALL that felt right… „Everyone leaves me. They always do.“ Charisma is afraid of being hurt. Will she ever let down her defenses enough for Blaze to claim her heart?! But the pull and the chemistry is undeniable. .
This read was really amazing and just could not get enough! I don’t read to get depressed. For me a book has to make me smile at the end — or sometimes cry but with HEA. And this one was just perfect!!
Hope we will have Dillon story soon?! That would be something.
Restock day ! My first is of the “Ruins” collection, made from canvas woven and printed in Japan. It’s one of my favourite fabrics and I’m so happy I was able to procure some more ! There are three colours of this design; black, burnt sienna, and blue sky. They all give off different vibes, even though the colours are the only difference. I’m just so in love with them 😍 what’s your favourite ? 💕💕 Effie
Q: What is your favourite illustrated book cover?
Heya gorgeous readers 🌻 .
I am currently obsessing over illustrated covers, I think they're so fun and so cute! And I have found myself adding so many to my shopping carts hehe, like seriously how cute is this cover 🙌🏽😍
So today has been an absolute brilliant day for me, not only did I get my copy of Meet Cute by Helena Hunting in the mail, but I became 1 of 10 lucky ladies to rep for @emily.reads_ etsy store!! How awesome is that!? 😍🎉 Thank you so much again boo for the opportunity!

Short and sweet post today my lovelies, I have had a long day and just finished a quiz night fundraiser, so I'm going to go snuggle by the fire and finish reading Nine by TM Frazier, and I'll hopefully be able to get back to Corrupt by Penelope Douglas!
Fantastic story and two men that are so perfect for one another! I loved Dean and thought he got everything he needed in Anthony. Watching Dean muddle through forging a relationship with his niece and fumble his way into a sweet and steamy relationship with Anthony was magic because of how very real the story was. I'm gone, just gone over him. And I'll definitely be back for more of this series as the books are re-released! #mm#bookrecommendations#bookreview#romancenovels#theguyseries@skylarcates

Worse, the feelings that explode every time they meet are disturbing her peace of mind. But as Kari desperately searches for the truth about her husband's death, the man who destroyed his reputation -- the one she should really hate -- is awakening a passion that she has never known.

Hitting rock bottom shows you just what you're made of and who your family is. For Cris, he's lucky with a fantastic support group of men who are his family by choice and their love is what could give him the strength he needs to climb back into the light. But it's the stunning bodyguard that gives his heart a reason to beat. They struggle for their HEA and a beautiful surprise gives them both the family they were yearning for. While this wasn't my favorite story, it wasn't a bad read and the majority of other reviewers loved it. #mm#bodyguardromance#bookreview#romancenovels

So much potential, so little story. I wanted so much to like this story. This isn't a glowing review, be warned. I don't enjoy writing poor reviews, but I can't be anything other than honest. Based on the premise alone I was expecting a unique, interesting, and sexy take on zombies. We got sexy, a whole lot of that actually, more voyeurism than I could stomach, in fact. What we didn't get was any kind of story that drew me in, no connection between the MC's to keep me invested, and virtually no follow-through on many things that did actually interest me. So overall, this was a total bust for me. If you like a story that's heavy on the steam and light on plot, this might be for you. #mm#bookreview#romancenovels#zombieromance

*Incomprehensible shouting is the only thing that can be heard*
Oh my bloody hell, this was *stunning* I'd heard about this from a romance reviewer on YouTube (Shout out to FangirlMusings! Check her out she's awesome) Boy this book did not disappoint. It exceeded my expectations in every way.
Emma is fantastic. She was so sweet and smart I just loved her from jump. She melted my heart and made me want to protect her at all costs. She was a survivor man. As for Nicholas..........HAWWWWT. Lord the things this man said and thought my bloody god why is he not a real person???? I just.............. How was this Donna MacMeans' debut? It is so good I cannot even fathom. She came out the gate with brilliance. Friends, I have not highlighted so many passages from a book in a loooooooooong time. The writing is simply gorgeous.
Historical fans rejoice, I have your perfect book. It is this

Can definitely relate @write_or_left !!! I'm like, "Wow, didn't see that one coming! Are you okay?" Such was the case when a main character in my trilogy suddenly died. THAT was devastating! Everyone kept saying, "Just rewrite the scene so he doesn't die..." but that's not how it happens.
How stunning is this cover...💚💛💚💛

Y'all, "The Lady and the Highwayman" let me tell you-
Well, I pulled a Belle with this one. I walked around my house with my nose snuck in my iPad until I finished this book. This is my second Sarah M. Eden book and so far I'm 2 for 2 on being satisfied with her stories.
Our heroine is a prim and proper headmistress who clandestinely writes Penny Dreadful novels. Our hero also is a Penny Dreadful novelist and part of a secret society along with other novelists.
The story is really fun because it's busy. We get samples of actual Penny Dreaded novels and we follow the secret society as they 'work' around town. One of the Penny Dreadful stories has the Gothic feel of 'Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron' a la @juliaquinnauthor . So, it's worth checking out on that basis alone.
This book is not Romance with a capital R. The love story is not an afterthought but not the focus either. It's lagniappe. But it's sweet and clean lagniappe, appropriate for a prim and proper headmistress.
Lastly, can we talk about how adorable this cover is? I'm super basic in that I blatantly judge a book by its cover. I'm definitely more of a fan of this cover than most of the other Sarah M. Eden covers.
Alrighty, they've kissed, I've raced to the end of this book and told you about it. This adventure comes out September 3rd so be on the lookout!
PS, if you Google "the lady and the highwayman' the a film from 1989 starring Heath Grant pops up. Please do yourself a favor and swipe to the second picture so you can see how fabulous his hair looks.

Find out what happens when fantasy becomes reality in this steamy quickie.
🖤Es un fabuloso regalo gótico de un libro lleno de vampiros antiguos, vendettas y amor. Es adictiva con una mezcla de misterio, romance y fantasía.🖤
La Sombra, es la tercera entrega de la Saga Noches en Florencia de Sylvain Reynard.
Disfruté muchísimo de esta lectura y ahora voy a explicarles la razón.
Al libro lo devoré, hay un cambio rotundo en William, el amor entre los protagonistas es más fuerte pero se ve en peligro por traidores y enemigos que se mantienen en las sombras para ocupar el lugar del Príncipe en el Concilium.
La historia,el lugar en donde transcurre,los personajes son fuera de lo común.El Príncipe,me había dejado algunas preguntas sin respuesta pero mientras avanza la historia se fueron revelando los secretos.
Algo que destaco siempre de los libros del autor son las referencias a libros clásicos,en este caso,El Arte de la Guerra Sun Tzu, El Príncipe de Niccolo Machiavelli,El Asno de Oro de Lucio Apuleyo, La Biblia, el arte y la música. ✨✨✨
También otra cosa de la cual comentar son las escenas de amor,son especiales,las descripciones de dichas escenas estaban cargadas de emociones,insinuaciones que te hacen emocionar,no logran ser vergonzosas o fuera de lugar.
Tengo de admitir que hay muchas cosas que no me las esperaba como el principio,esto logró mantenerme interesada y el final...¡¡¡¡por mi amor a Dante!!!! ,es lo que menos me esperaba,todavía no caigo del todo con respecto a los traidores en el principado...
No puedo esperar a leer el próximo libro,ya que es el último, y tengo altas expectativas,todos me gustaron muchísimo,algo me dice que al fin va a aparecer el famoso Romano que tanto fue mencionado en los libros y la curia.
Lamentablemente,no está traducido al español,Los invito a que se unan a la campaña para conseguir la traducción OFICIAL,con el #theshadowenespañol #srenespañol ,en todas las redes sociales, etiquetando al autor.

Marry the love of my life.
Become a mother.
Write a book.
Number one was complete. I was well on my way to checking off goals two and three, before a cancer diagnosis derailed my plans.
A story meant to chronicle the journey of impending motherhood with wit, became a brutally honest memoir of living life to the fullest.
Make every breath count.
When finally confronted with the knowledge the cancer is terminal, I search for a way to accomplish all the things I wanted to do within my lifetime… when I don’t have a lifetime left.
Every Last Drop is the heartfelt, unflinching, and original story of how when faced with the hardest truth, we finally learn how far we will go to discover who we are before it’s too late.
