Monday's Muse

Monday, June 21

Sorry, but the image containing the Monday's Muse has been removed from this blog so as not to violate any copyright issues.  Thanks for your understanding!

Since yesterday was father's day  I couldn't resist featuring a Muse holding a cute as a button baby this week.  I love pictures of men holding babies *sigh*.

Last week I read quite a bit.  I should have thrown in a few reviews, but frankly I wasn't really in the mood to write them...which means that this week I really need to get busy before the next week which is the last week of June.  I always seem to be overloaded with posts on the last week and am determined to try and not let that happen this month.  Anyways, I read Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean and absolutely LOVED it.  It was so much better than I even thought it would be and I had high expectations after reading a few reviews.  If you like historical romances I highly recommend it, especially if you like Elizabeth Hoyt (which I do).  Then I read His at Night by Sherry Thomas, which didn't live up to all that I had heard about this author and her books.  She was on my list of authors that I wanted to try this year and sadly I was disappointed.  It's not that the book was bad....it was just mediocre in my opinion, but I'm going to give her another try.  I have Private Arrangements in my TBR and this book got excellent reviews, so I'll just have to wait and see what I think about this author after reading another of her novels. Right now I'm reading Stroke of Genius by Emily Bryan...I just started, so I'll let you know next Monday what I thought of it.

Did any of you happen to read the blog by Courtney Milan titled "Chased by Cows!" ?  I'm a fan of Courtney's books and her blog which I read whenever I can.  I happened on this post on Friday and  I laughed so hard I actually snorted :)  Yeah it wasn't pretty, but the post is darn funny....I dare you not to laugh.  If you are needing a Monday pick me up I recommend reading it (it's safe for work).  I hope she uses it as a scene in the book she is researching.

Blog Updates:
  • There are a few new Guest Authors that I added to the calender and I am currently sending out invites for September & October so if there is an author you'd like to see here as a guest and has a book coming out within this time frame let me know.
  • There's a new Tempting Trailer for Cynthia Eden's new romantic suspense out next month, Deadly Fear.  She's known for her paranormal romance, so I am intrigued by this direction in her writing.  I love a good romantic suspense so this one is on my radar.
I think that's about all I have for you this week.  Reviews, more reviews....then on Sunday I will have the winners from the Robyn DeHart Desire Me giveaway.  If you haven't commented to win yet, you still have time :)

Have a good one!

Love the picture. There is a connection between the two of them. The eye contact and reaction is great

Thanks for link to "Chased By Cows." Was a good way to start the morning. Brought back memories.

Wow, so Sarah MacLean is comparable to Elizabeth Hoyt?? I have Nine Rules...in my TBR pile. I am a big Hoyt fan, *loved* The Leopard Prince & To Seduce A Sinner.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
