Monday's Muse

Monday, September 9

I know I say this every year about this time, but where has the year gone?  I can't believe we are in September already.  It seems like just yesterday that the summer was just beginning, and here we's almost over.  The only good thing about that is that there are some stellar romance books coming out in the last three months of the year and I CAN'T WAIT.

A few weeks ago an online friend and I had a brief discussion about the best books we've read so far this year....and neither one of us could really find a standout.  It's not that the books I've read this year were bad, in fact I think that they were all fairly good.  And therein lies the problem.  They have all been pretty much the same, but I've not had one book so far this year that I've been over the moon for.  I do expect that to change at some point (I hope).  Do you have a favorite read so far this year?  And if so what was it?

Did I forget to mention that we have a new Muse this week?  We do :)

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Tuesday:  New Seductive Reviewer Melissa will be making her review debut with Bannockburn Binding by Tracy Cooper-Posey
  • Wednesday:  New Seductive Reviewer Blue will be making her review debut with The Heiress Effect by Courtney Milan.  I am reading this currently (and loving it) so I'll be interested to see what Blue thought of it.
  • Thursday:  Author Kelly Moran will be my guest to share with us her book The Dysfunctional Test
  • Friday:  I hope to have a Fun Friday post to share with you, but it will depend on how much free time I can find this week to prepare it :)

Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors with new releases this week, especially Musings authors Beth Williamson, Stephanie Julian, Beth Kery, Jennifer Ashley

I wanted to mention two books I read and after seeing Monday's Muse I forgot their names. lol
Seriously I too have read books this year that were all very good as far as I'm concerned and that makes it harder to narrow it down. But I read two books in that last month that I have to ay were really, really good.They aren't historical romance but they are awesome reads.
1. What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty ( a new Author for me)

2. One Hundred Summers by Bertrize Williams.

Sorry, A Hundred Summers is by Beatriz Williams. She also wrote Overseas, another great read.

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 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 and gift cards on this rewards site)
