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.
- 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.
Have a good one!
