Another week where I only posted the one review but considering the week I had, I'm patting myself on the back for a job well done LOL. No plans or predictions this week, maybe that will be more effective??

  1. Hope you enjoy your reading this week. I've read a lot of good posts about Dracula in Love. Happy reading!

  2. Most of the time my weeks never go as planned!!!

    Your books on deck look great and of course, I loved the steamy Dracula in Love!!

  3. Great selection, look forward to some of those reviews.

    I really enjoyed Prophecy of the sisters. I want to start the Soul series also.

    My Post

  4. I gave up on the plan working.... ever.... LOL seems like I either read something other than planned or just dont get to the plan.... oh well..

    I would love to read The Forever Queen!

    Have a super week and a Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Enjoy the reading. I am reading Joanne Harris's Holy Fools. So far very good.

  6. I am sure with no plans you will get more done. I hope you have a fabulous week ahead!

  7. Let us know if the narrator on MY SOUL TO LOSE is any good...

    I have been meaning to read that book but so pushed for time - might be worth it to listen to if the narrator is any good..

    Happy week hon...


  8. I too greatly enjoyed The Forever Queen. I hope to read Prophecy of the Sisters soon. Have a wonderful week reading! My Monday:

  9. I have been putting off and putting off Mockingjay, but I'm hoping to get it read this holiday week. But like you said...I'm not planning on it! LOL I've also been wanting to get to my copy of Dracula in Love, it just looks so good!

    Have a fabulous reading week, a Happy Thanksgiving (if it applies ;o) ) and if you have a second take a look at what I’ve been reading at There’s A Book.

  10. I definitely stopped planning my weeks in advance, just doesn't work. Hope you get through some of those books and reviews, but most of all hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. There is just not enough hours in the day to fit in all I have planned.!

  12. I'm thinking that plans are like creative journeys...they can take us along in a linear fashion, but more than likely, they will display a mind of their own. But then, they can lead us to surprising places. We can choose to go with the flow.

    Hope you enjoy your journey this week, and thanks for detouring to visit my blog.

  13. I've pretty much given up on being able to read everything I intend during a week, lol. I almost always don't make it!

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of My Soul To Lose, I've been curious about that one.

    My week is at:

  14. I've been cruising along at once a week posts too. It is what it is, and I am not going to sweat it. Neither should you.

    All three books up for this week look awesome. Those foxes are too cute! enjoy your week and chat with ya later :)

  15. I am reading Dracula in Love right now. I just started it last night!

  16. Good luck with the week to come.

    It may have been only one review, but it was a good one, and for a good book.

  17. HI, This is my first what you are reading weeks. I am hoping I can complete what I plan

    Here is my week.

  18. Can't wait to read your review for the Forever Queen and I can't wait to read it. I've decided to officially name 2011 as the year of reading for pleasure. I'm hoping to catch up on all the books I haven't had time to read this year. All your books that are here will be at the top of my list LOL.

  19. I'm looking forward to your views about The Red Queen! Drop by my blog to see my Christmas selections.
