I'm baaaaack!

Hello,  lovelies!  I am back from hiatus and I’m feeling refreshed and much better. I can’t wait to visit your blogs and catch up on your posts that I have missed. I’ve read a lot of books since my last post:

 

Angel Burn (Angel, #1) Glitch (Glitch, #1) Touched Hourglass (Hourglass, #1) Timepiece (Hourglass, #2)

Fifty Shades Trilogy Bundle: Fifty Shades of Grey; Fifty Shades Darker; Fifty Shades Freed
(Don't look at me like that... )
 
One Moment Fever (The Chemical Garden, #2) Anathema (Causal Enchantment, #1) Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
   
I can’t wait to share my thoughts on them in the upcoming weeks.

Congratulations to Nikki, Heidi, Christie, Jennifer, Nyssa, Jeffrey, Jen, and Rhonda
 on wining copies of When I See You by Katherine Owen:

When I See You
 
Please check your emails and let her know where to send your copy of this awesome novel.

A huge thank you to Katherine for her generosity and for taking the time to talk with me. She is a gem!  
 

I’m currently reading:
Velveteen (Velveteen, #1)

I have a lot of fabulous books to read and review this summer:

You know what? I'm just going to stop there. I haven't even made a dent in the TBR pile. It's more than I thought, and, while I'm super excited to read all of these books, I just got a little nauseous and overwhelmed. While I breathe into a paper bag, here's one last exciting tidbit:

I have a HUGE announcement about an upcoming giveaway that starts next week. I’ll be posting more about that this weekend, but here's a hint:

"No coward soul is mine."

Nope, it's not an Emily Bronte giveaway, but this quote IS in a wonderful upcoming release and the author is giving away some Ahhhhhmazing goodies!!

So, what does your summer reading list include? Any favorites you think I should bump to the top?

I wish you all a wonderful summer. Thank you so much for the follows, the comments, and the amazing support. *Hugs* and Happy Reading!

    2. Good question, Beebs! (Look at me...so lazy I can't even say BBS anymore. Wahaha! That, or I'm out of practice. :C ) Maybe a buddy read of Sweet Evil or Everneath next Saturday? I can plunk Katie down in her kiddie pool and sit on the patio w/ a frosty beverage. :D Whaddya say? Or you can pick a book. I'm pretty open.

    3. I think Beebs is a more than acceptable name for a lazy Saturday, or any other day of the week! LOL! Yeshhhhhh to next Saturday! It's a date with my bestie!!! I have Everneath right here, so we could start with that one?? Okay, but plunk the Bug down gently and before you've had too many of those frosty beverages. I may need to send Katertot over to lifeguard. Wahahaha! Wuv eweeeee!

    4. It's a date! :D Squee! Now I just need to decide if I want the book book or the Nook book. It's a series, right? Better get the real thing then. Plus, it *would* look purty on my shelf. :) I promise...I'll plunk her down gently and BEFORE I have any frosty beverages. :) But Katertot is welcome to lifeguard duty. :D Wuv ewe right back!

  5. Welcome back my friend. Thanks for the book, so excited. Your list is probably a heck of a lot shorter than mine. I have been wanting to read Night Circus forever. Ha! I can't believe you read Fifty Shades...You and Sam both going on hiatus made it lonely. Glad you are back! Of course I will be back for your giveaway!
