TBR Thursday
Strong Poison - Dorothy L. Sayers
The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements - Sam Kean
Give Me Everything You Have: On Being Stalked - James Lasdun
You Could Live a Long Time: Are You Ready? - Lyndsay Green
Lady Slings the Booze - Spider Robinson

So I'm actually almost finished everything on last week's TBR Thursday!  Yay me!

 

I'm really looking forward to Strong Poison, as I keep hearing good things from several of you (and I'm pretty enamoured of Lord Peter anyway).

 

And speaking of hearing from the rest of you, it sounds like very few of the Flat Book Society are too impressed with The Disappearing Spoon.  I'll still give it a shot, since I have it out of the library.

 

Next up is my February RL Book Club selection, Give Me Everything You Have.  I've actually previously read this, but way back in 2013, so this is more a brush-up to allow me to talk about the book with the club ladies.

 

I've also got retirement on my mind.  I'll be taking a 2 day course in February on preparing to retire.  But I remembered a book that I read way back--it was published in 2010 and that's probably when I encountered it.  The author's thesis:  that we concentrate too much on financials and not on the social aspects of retirement.  So I'm going to revisit You Could Live a Long Time, Are You Ready? now that I'm nearer that event to help me get my house in order.

 

Finally, I want to get back on track with my Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Project and the next book on the list is Lady Slings the Booze.  Sigh!  If you're a big fan of puns, Spider Robinson is the writer for you.  Unfortunately I just find them pun-ishing and I'm not too fond of his version of women either, so thank heavens its a short book.

 

I seem to also be slipping in a number of re-reads of old favourites, so we'll see how much progress I make on this list this week.

 

Looking forward to seeing what all my friends are enjoying too!

 

Have a great weekend!

Release Blitz - Game On

Game On by Kelly Jamieson is AVAILABLE NOW!
 
 
 
When the stakes are this high, it’s game on. . . . “Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips
 
Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle. Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections.
 
When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people. Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.
 
 
 
 
 

Game On (Aces Hockey, #8)Game On by Kelly Jamieson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #8, in the Aces Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Cam bets his teammates he can get a date with the hot girl. She seems to not be interested in him, but there is something that just gives him hope. Then when they try to go on a date, the mishaps begin.

Olivia has no idea how to approach Cam about helping her out on a professional level. They start trying to date and it seems to be almost a wedge between them. Then she gets to know him. It changes everything.

This series is just so good! I was laughing my way through this book. The characters are such a joy to read. There is heat, humor and heart. Great combination.

Opposites attract…and ignite. On the ice, Justin Perry is always in control. As one of the Reading Redtails’ best defensemen, he plays with an intense focus and skates like he was born on blades. Off the ice, he’s content to keep his head down and his eyes on the prize: a spot on an NHL team. Except when Vivi Martin’s around. She’s bright, bold and beautiful and Justin can’t make himself look away.

 

Vivi can’t help but notice Justin’s interest and, yeah, she’s not immune to his awkward charm or his grin that steals her breath. But falling for another athlete who will only leave and break her heart is the last thing she needs. Been there, done that. No t-shirt required. She’s too busy working three part-time jobs to make ends meet while figuring out how to use her passion for photography to build a career.

 

Until Vivi gets a peek at what’s underneath Justin’s boy-scout exterior and discovers a tattooed hunk who rocks her world with a kiss. She’d be a fool to pass up a chance to get him in her bed....and in front of her camera. And Vivi’s no fool. But when a career-focused hockey player pursues a free spirit who’s built a fortress of ice around her bruised heart, Justin’s going to have to step up and take his best shot to break through Vivi’s walls...and hope it doesn’t shatter them both.

The D-Man: Redtails Hockey 6The D-Man: Redtails Hockey 6 by Stephanie Julian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #6, in the Redtails Hockey series. This story can be read as a standalone novel. For read understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Justin is getting ribbed by his friends about watching Vivi when she is near. It is true he is interested. When you are tongue tied, when do you make your move?

Vivi does not usually go out with good guys. Commitment gives her hives. Justin is so different from what she is used to. He treats her like a man should treat a woman.

This was such a great addition to the series. Steamy and sweet, this book just grabbed at my heart strings and I could not put it down. The main characters were very real to me. Their story weaved and fell into place. I really liked this book it was a joy to read.
