  1. Have fun at your Dexter party! It is sad when a favorite show comes to an end but it sounds like you'll be celebrating in style! I am not really watching TV at the moment. My show doesn't start till January (Downton Abbey Season 4). I'll be celebrating by having a Downton Abbey themed murder mystery tea at my library. It gives me something to look forward to this winter :)

    I hadn't heard of any of the books on your list before but Nobody But Him sounds like a book I'd enjoy. I like those contemporary romances set in small towns.

    1. We get Downton Abbey season 4 in October so only another week to wait ... *squeee* The murder mystery tea sound like heaps of fun, I'd come to that lol

  2. I finally got the book on Friday! LOL!! Took them awhile! Too funny!! And did you see what we had for dessert tonight??? :) So I need to send you another care package??? :)

  3. I like this meme too-I'm not currently in a place to participate myself but I like seeing your posted pretty faithfully every week and getting a peek at what you've got planned. Looks like a fun week :)

    1. what did you think B ... I was happy with the ending but I'll miss Dexter that's for sure. The perfect anti-hero lol

  5. Lots of good reading accomplished. All the authors are new to me, I have just been perusing Keri Arthur on Goodreads, maybe will try her sometime.

  6. Hey - does it bother anyone else that Hannah and Dexter do absolutely NOTHING to disguise Hannah's looks, change her appearance, ANYHTHING? It kept bugging me as I'm watching them drive around town, sit outside at Deb's house, in the AIRPORT, etc. If you're hiding out and there are pictures of you on wanted lists, TRY TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK. seems pretty basic to me. Go without make up, cut your hair, PUT IT UP, dye it, something different. colored contacts.....

    It was still an interesting ending. :)

    1. We were saying exactly the same thing, I'm sure that's in the "laying low" handbook haha. So yeah it came across a bit lame.
      Thought the ending was good ... fitting :)

    2. I liked the ending too - though I couldn't help thinking how Hannah was going to raise Harrison, given her hobby of killing people. ;)

  7. Looking forward to your review for Nobody But Him, I like the look of this one.

    Pleased you were happy with the Dexter ending...its a series I hope to get around to one day...I'm always years behind everyone else.

    I finally have season 1 of Game of Thrones to get started with!

  8. Enjoy your Dexter night. A best of the year read, going to read that review now.

  9. These books are all new to me - will definitely be checking out your reviews of them.

    Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  10. I really must watch Dexter sometime! I keep seeing previews....sigh.

    Your books look good this week...hope you enjoy them all. I'm curious about Forgetting Tabitha.


  11. Looking forward to your review of Marie Antoinette!

  12. Can't wait for Marie Antoinette! I have read a couple of books about her in the past and enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing your books.

  13. I have Nobody But Him coming up , and Outback Dreams :)
    Have a great week Sheree!

  14. Hello darling! How are you? Hope you, Bella and the boys are well. Hope enjoyed Dexter. I've read some comments lately and reactions have been mixed. I gave up uo Dexter long while back but it always sucks when a show you enjoy is over :(

    Recently read Divergent (finally) and LOVED IT!!! I was thinking of you the whole time because you are the reason I requested it. On the wait list for the second but I'm sure I will like it just as much. Tris is a darling and much stronger than she gives herself credit for.
    Take care and talk to you soon.
