Good Monday Everyone!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend and you're ready for a brand new week. My weekend was wonderfully full with reading, writing and spending time with my hubby and fur-kids. Our weather has been exceptional and though I'm afraid we're going to pay for it with a blizzard in May or June, I'm enjoying the heck out of it right now.
Wanted to say thank you again to Anne Woodall for doing such an exceptional job last week on the blog. Her post was so well thought out and had me adding several new-to-me authors to my TBR list.
My plan is to have one reader Recommend Monday blog a month, giving you all a chance to talk about your favorite books, series, authors, why you read romance or your favorite types of themes. Basically anything to do with books, reading or romance. If you're interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll chat. I've got volunteers booked through April, but the rest of the months are up for grabs.
I did read a fabulous book over the weekend, but I'm judging it for the RWA Rita contest and can't tell you what it is. (Yes, I know that's cruel!) I've got eight books to judge, with a deadline of early March. Got lots of reading to do and at some point, I'll definitely be recommending some of these books. So many fabulous authors and stories out there!
However, I wanted to mention again that if you haven't read Wait For Me by Elisabeth Naughton, you're missing out. I'm a sucker for an amnesia story and the way the heroine loses her memory is scarily realistic. There's a wonderful amount of angst, sizzle and suspense and I loved how Naughton allowed Kate and Ryan the time to fall in love again. Highly recommended!
SECRETS OF A SOUTHERN NIGHT is coming along very well. Zach and Savannah had a few more secrets than I originally thought. LOL I actually thought there was only one major secret. Boy oh boy do my characters love to surprise me. Now you know why I torture my characters so much...they do it to me first!
Okay, gotta go...hubby's calling. Saint's Alive, he's making me breakfast!
Can't wait to see what books you loved last week. And while you're at it, tell us what up-coming releases you're excited about reading.
Happy Monday All!
