I was glad for the romances because I have a lot of horror, dystopian and mysteries coming up in my schedule and I will read one of these in-between to cleanse my palate. Enjoy your weather and have a wonderful Mother's Day!

TRUE AND DOWN LONDON ROAD!!! I absolutely adored True, I can't wait to see what you think Kimba! I'm dying to read Down London Road, On Dublin Street was one of my favorite reads last year. And I still need to read a Linda Lael Miller book, I've never read one. That needs to change!

Happy Mother's Day, Kimba! I'm glad you're celebrating, and glad it's warming up. After an 84-degree high yesterday, it's only supposed to reach 70 here, so there goes my plan to wear sandals this morning.


You have a lovely lot of romances in your haul this week. Happy reading!

Cheers!!! *clink, clink* Happy Mother's Day!!! Enjoy your brunch and day of reading!!!


I chuckle now when I see your new books, like Linda Miller, b/c the first thing I think of it, "Crap, now I've got to fit another of her books on the shelf!!" - I'm in charge of keeping paperback "M"'s in order (among others) and that lady has more Big Sky and McKettricks and blah, blah.... Her books get a serious workout and are always a mess!!


... but I babble... Have a great week, too!!!! ps. no haulin' for me ;)

I really can't wait to read your review of Black City. I had to DNF it because I wasn't feeling it at the time, but I didn't hate it! Maybe I need a little push to go back to it, and hopefully I'll get it from your review.
Happy Sunday and happy Mother's Day!
