Plan of Attack
If We Were Villains: A Novel - M. L. Rio
The Maid of the North: Feminist Folk Tales from Around the World - Lloyd Bloom,Ethel Johnston Phelps
The Vampire Defanged: How the Embodiment of Evil Became a Romantic Hero - Susannah Clements
Shadow Games - Glen Cook
Shakespeare Saved My Life: Ten Years in Solitary with the Bard - Laura Bates
The Three Musketeers - Alexandre Dumas

So, I am once again overwhelmed with library books and I have to get cracking!

 

I should be finished If We Were Villains in one more evening, if the cat lets me and I can stay awake.  (Mr. Cat leaped on me in bed this morning at 5:45 a.m. to let me know he was ready for me to get up.  And he'd been such a polite bed-partner until then).

 

Maid of the North is an interlibrary loan which can't be renewed, but it reads fast.  I will finish it this weekend for sure.  Same thing with The Vampire Defanged.

 

Shadow Games has been put on hold far too frequently and I really want to finish it up quickly, too.

 

Then the next 2 library books to tackle are Shakespeare Saved My Life and The Three Musketeers.  I've renewed them both on at least a couple of occasions and I'll soon not be able to renew again.  Gotta get cracking!

 

My mission is clear.

Release Blitz - Writing My Own Destiny
 


 
 

Purchase TODAY

 

Blurb:

 
 
‘We love Aussies,’ they said, ‘the readers will eat you up’.


Those seven little words got me on a plane to the USA for the ‘Raunchy with a touch of sexiness – Valentine’s Day Author Event’ in Miami.

I’m a romance author. A girl with a vivid imagination, and an overactive sex drive. 

Oh, and yes I’m Australian

When I agreed the so-called love of my life had just walked out on me, leaving me with two little girls. All I wanted was a little fun and some no strings attached fun while I was there. 

It would be my very own ‘what happens in Miami, stays in Miami’.

Unless I fall in love with an American....

There’s no such thing as a happily ever after in real life.

Amazing Historical Romance!
The Rivals - Joan Johnston

Blackthorne's Bride by Joan Johnston is a fabulous historical romance.  Ms Johnston has penned an awesome story and furnished it with phenomenal characters.  Marcus and Josie's story is loaded with drama, suspense, humor and sizzle.  I totally love the way this story unfolded.  A big thumbs up to Ms Johnston for delivering another amazing book.  I enjoyed reading Blackthorne's Bride and look forward to reading more from the talented Joan Johnston in the future.  Blackthorne's Bride is a Bitter Creek Novel but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

 

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

Bed Time Stories for Grown Ups
Bed Time Stories for Grown Ups - Cearúil... Bed Time Stories for Grown Ups - Cearúil Swords,Maria Eftimie,Joe Johnston What an interesting collection of short stories. From a woman who gets a day off from her job in the dungeon with an ogre and a troll, to a man whose fears of the impossible consume his life, these stories range from downright hilarious (in that wacky, absurdist style reminiscent of [b:The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy|11|The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1)|Douglas Adams|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1327656754s/11.jpg|3078186]) to meaningful and touching.

My favorite story was definitely The Woman Who Needed to Sit. It's told using all of about 3 sentences, though one runs on so long, it quite accurately conveys the hectic life of a busy mom, while still remaining perfectly readable.

Each story begins with "Once upon a time," and ends with "And they all lived happily ever after," lending a fairytale feel. I love how the author takes the most mundane of ideas (a man who is running late and needs to tie his shoes, a woman whose parent's fear she doesn't have a good head on her shoulders), and gives it a fantasy twist (the shoes refuse to let him move, the woman takes her head off and tries on some others).

I'm not sure about the sample in the back, though. It rambled on in the most curious way, and I couldn't tell you what that story will be about. Don't blink. You might miss something. Though in his defense, the author did say that "Its process of construction resembled sending vowels and consonants downstream towards a waterfall and making a story out of the words formed by the letters that cling desperately to one another and to the driftwood as they fast approach the drop."

So I can't vouch for the end excerpt, but the rest of the book is fantastic. And you don't even have to be a grown up to enjoy it. :)
