  1. Isn't it nice to get clean and organized, when it is easier to just close the door? I picked up a Kristan Higgins book because of you (and Staci), and love her. I have not read Anna Campbell, just may have to give her a read too. Have a great week.

  2. Congrats to the winners!! Can't wait to see your reviews this week!!

  3. You've got some nice reviews coming up. Look forward to those! My blogger dashboard has got many postings in Vietnamese (I think!). Any idea how I can handle this?

    1. Mystica, I've heard of a few people having glitches with that. Under your display name, in the upper right corner there's a drop down menu (next to a gear or cog icon) click on change display language. Hope that sorts it out, it's all I can think of??

  4. So excited for your Prodigy review-I really adored it and am dying for Champion!

  5. The Bone Season is on my reading list as well! Good luck with your clean up!

    Have a great week

  6. Hope you enjoy The Next Best Thing, I have it in my sights for reading in a little while. I am a fairly new Kristan Higgins fan.

  7. Sounds like you are keeping busy and reading a variety of books. I liked The Sweetest Dark when I read it. Come and see my Monday Report to catch up on my week. Happy reading!

  8. Prodigy sounds so ...interesting and the Bone Season? Just wow.. I hope you enjoy the week.


  9. Tidying up and reading a lot, well done!

    Have a ood week & kind regards,

  10. Looks like you've got a lot accomplished and I'm sure once you get that room all in order the creative juices will be flowing. :)
    It's Monday!

  11. I posted my review of The Tudor Conspiracy last week - such a fun series!

    After I get back from vacation, I plan on doing some major organization in my house - closets, scrapbooking stuff, books, etc. Then maybe I can set up my scrapbooking stuff in the guest room and actually work on it when I have time.

    Have a great week!

  12. I have yet to read a Keri Arthur (my daughter's name and same spelling!)but hear good things about her books. Glad you had a great stack of books this past week, and enjoy the upcoming one!

  13. I really want to read JP's The Storyteller. My daughters and I usually share her books. I can't believe they haven't been pestering me about it.

    Hope those creative juices start flowing :)

  14. Cleaning up can boost our motivation for other tasks...enjoy!

    Thanks for sharing...I loved The Storyteller. And here's MY MONDAY READING POST

  15. I loved The Tudor Conspiracy too-one of my 5 star reads of the year. Will definitely have to read the first one now because if its as good as the second one I've been missing out!

  16. I need to read the Spymaster Chronicles ASAP!

  17. I need to read the Tudor Conspiracy!

    I just finished "Tarnished and Torn" by Juliet Blackwell. I adore her Witchcraft mysteries series!

    I also reread Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins. Brilliant mixed up with psychotropic drugs! LOL
