Book Tour: The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich

 

I have always heard really good things about Stephanie Evanovich’s Big Girl Panties, and I had been meaning to read the book for a while, but never got around to it. I saw TLC Book Tours offering The Sweet Spot as a book tour and I knew I immediately wanted to be on the tour. See what I thought of Stephanie Evanovich’s The Sweet Spot below!

Book Tour: The Curiosity by Stephen P. Kiernan

How could you say no to a book that claims to be “Michael Crichton meets The Time Traveler’s Wife”? I mean a book that is a “powerful debut novel in which a man, frozen in the Arctic ice for more than a century, awakens in the present day” sounds so amazing that I just had to read it. Find out what I thought about this book below!

Sad but good news

I am sure some of you have noticed that I have been MIA lately. I recently got a position within a company that demands a lot more of my time than I before and so I haven’t been able to blog as much as I had been before. I also haven’t gotten into the swing of finding time to read, so I haven’t really had that much to blog about anyways. I am definitely not going to shut down this blog entirely, I just won’t be as active on it, on goodreads, twitter or on my facebook. I am still planning on reading but it won’t be as much as I had been before. I definitely won’t be able to finish my June TBR pile, but will keep it as my July TBR. I’m hoping to still participate in some of the read-a-longs; right now I’m hoping to continue participating in Booktube Reading Buddies on Goodreads and also in the #SummerofLOTR. I will also still be posting some Book Tours occasionally.

This is an exciting opportunity for me so I’m glad I am able to pursue it, I just wish I was also able to read and blog as much as I was before. I’m sure once I get established in the role (and change my hours slightly) I will have more time to read and blog.

Keep reading my friends :)

Book Tour: Girls On Fire Boxed Set by Various Authors

 

 

 

 

 

 

How can you refuse a collection of books written by various females authors and that feature kick-butt heroines?!? I took one look at the list of author’s and books that were included in this boxed set and I knew I had to read it- and I am so glad I did. Mind you, while I am writing this review I have only read 2 of the books fully, but if those 2 are amazing, what’s to say the others aren’t?! This is a great value for all these books!
