The Goal: To finally read 12 books from your “to be read” pile (within 12 months).

So, I’m going through my To Read list on Goodreads, and HOLY CRAP! There’s a lot of books on that list!

Note: Some of the books are NOT intended for those who are under the age of anything involving sex, 😆

A few were picked out by my husband, and well, I think he’s trying to get me to expand my horizons 😀

  1. The Hobbit
  2. Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen
  3. Divergent (Divergent Trilogy, Book 1)
  4. The Fault in Our Stars
  5. The Chocolate Thief (Amour et Chocolat)
  6. Addicted
  7. Only in Texas (Hotter in Texas Book 1)
  8. Club Shadowlands (Masters of the Shadowlands Book 1)
  9. Perfect for You (A Laurel Heights Novel Book 1)
  10. Elfshadow: Elfshadow Bk. 1 (Song & Swords)
  11. Homeland: The Legend of Drizzt, Book I: Bk. 1
  12. The Thousand Orcs: The Hunter’s Blades Trilogy, Book I (The Legend of Drizzt)

And my alternates:

  1. North and South (The North and South Trilogy)
  2. Lonesome Dove by Mcmurtry, Larry Paperback

So, I’m going to have a good year, with more of a variety of books to be added to my repertoire this year.

Wish me luck! I have a feeling I’m going to need it!

Review: Cowboy Take Me Away by Lorelei James

Cowboy Take Me Away (Rough Riders, #16)Cowboy Take Me Away by Lorelei James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It jumps from past to present, but not in a way that will leave you confused.
I went from tears to laughing so hard and then a little hot under the collar.

Lorelei James’ writing always sucks me in, almost from the first few sentences, and this story was no different. You finally get the story of Carolyn and Carson, and it’s a story that was worth the wait. You get to see the parents of the characters you fell in love with, seeing those characters as children, as teens, and then even as parents, trying to keep their families together while dealing with the fear of losing their mom.

I honestly loved the story, and it makes me want to re-read the whole series over again!

I’ll share a quote that made me share it on FB. WARNING: It’s definitely NSFW!

She inched closer to him. “Remember that the next time floozies are sniffing around you. Remember who fucked you outside a bar. Remember who sucked you off in her car. Remember that you’ll never find a woman who gives you what I do in and out of bed. Remember you’re mine and I take care of what’s mine. But if you ever fuck around on me I will cut off your cock and wear it as a necklace.” She smashed her mouth to his, her kiss brutal. Relentless.

Review: Enticing by Lori Fostor

Enticing (Includes: Reissue of Buckhorn Brothers, #5)Enticing by Lori Foster

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It has two stories.
The first one is the continuation of the Buckhorn Brothers, with Casey, Sawyer’s son.
REALLY good! Loved “seeing” everyone.

The second is apparently part of a series, but I’m not sure which one. I’m going to have to find out, because it was really good.

Mamma Mia, My Oh My

I Finally Got Away

Friday, my friend, Julie, and I saw Mamma Mia! May I say that I, who’s not a huge fan of musicals, absolutely adored the movie. Julie wasn’t too sure that she’d wanted to see it, but saw it because I wanted to, and because Sex and the City wasn’t available. She paid for the tickets ($14) and I paid for the popcorn and sodas ($15.52). Worth every single penny paid, I think. Definitely one where I’ll be purchasing the DVD when it comes out, and the soundtrack as well. As I told Julie, I want it in my car, on my laptop, and on my phone.

Rave Reviews

I absolutely loved the screen adaptation of Mamma Mia! The look of it was gorgeous, never has a Greek island looked so beautiful! I loved Meryl Streep as Donna, she cam across as an honest and good-hearted character. I loved Amanda ans Sophie and my only big casting problem was Pierce Brosnan, you may want to cover your ears when he sings, he’s horrible. Some of the songs seemed a bit forced in the storyline, but some of them felt at home. I saw an advanced screening and the sound wasn’t very good but that could have been because of the spot where we were sitting. The movie was ultimate feel good! I loved it! It was very bright and bouncy the whole time. I didn’t feel that there was one slow moment in the movie! I think my favorite moment in the movie was definitely Dancing Queen. It was spectacular.

I’d have to say that I agree 100% with this review, and all of the spectacular ones. There might be some not so nice ones, but I haven’t paid any attention.
