TMST: Books or Series I’m Finally Going To Try

Tell Me Something Tuesday hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings.

 

What books or series that are languishing in your TBR are you finally going to try this year?

 

Oh man!! Their are a lot of books and series on my TBR that I’ve delayed for one reason or another. I have several books/series that I want to try, but I also have several I need to finish or get caught up on; before I start more new stuff. This year (2018) is going to be the year of working through older titles, the books I bought/own, and borrowing from my library (Library Love Challenge). 

 

As for those pesky books/series I’m going to try this year.

Take a look below at a few I really really want to get too in 2018.

 

 

Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club Series – I’ve had my eye on Sarah Castille’s books for a while. I’ve been wanting to try out her MC for some time now, but just haven’t picked them up. 

From New York Times bestselling author Sarah Castille comes Rough Justice, a scorching new series featuring red-hot, hard-riding bikers and the women who can’t help but love them…

 

 

Elemental Assassin Series – I haven’t started this series, but I’ve had my eye on it for years. Several bloggers have enjoyed this series. I like the elements described in the blurb’s and the covers are cool. For those that have tried the series, should I read or try the audio??

After Gin’s family was murdered by a Fire elemental when she was thirteen, she lived on the streets and eventually became an assassin to survive. Now, Gin is given an assignment by her handler to rub out an Ashland businessman, but it turns out to be a trap. After Gin’s handler is brutally murdered, she teams up with the sexy detective investigating the case to figure out who double-crossed her and why. Only one thing is for sure —Gin has no qualms about killing her way to the top of the conspiracy.

 

 

 

Shelby Nichols Adventure Series – The first time I saw a cover for this series I was hooked. I’ve had my eye on this series since I had Ms. Helme on the blog showcasing Devious Minds; along with a character bio for Alejandro Ramos. I snagged Book 1, Carrots for free when it was offered and got lucky to pick up the audio for free too, when a special was going with Audible. I just haven’t gotten around to trying this series, but I want too. It’s a cozy mystery with supernatural elements in it. That sounds cool and I love the covers for all the books.

Shelby’s life changes when she stops at the grocery store for some carrots. During a bank robbery, she is caught in the cross-fire and grazed by a bullet to the head, leaving her with the ability to read people’s minds. Not only is she hearing what everyone thinks about her, but the gunman who shot her is out to silence her forever. In her fight to stay alive she is saved from certain death by a handsome hit-man with ties to organized crime. This pulls Shelby even deeper into danger, where knowing someone’s thoughts can not only hurt her feelings, but get her killed.

 

 

 

Silence Fallen – I had pre-ordered this title, so I had it on release day, but never read it. I think I’m delaying; because their have been so many mixed reviews on this title in the Mercy Thompson series and I’m a fan of Mercy. I LOVE Mercy. 

 

 

 

Dead Heat – Ya, I need to get to this one since Burn Bright is coming March 2018. I wish my library had the audiobook for it, but they don’t, so I’ll have to pick up the book and read it or buy the audiobook if I want to do audio. Anyone have this in Audible that wants to loan it out?

 

 

 

Into the Fire – Yep, I also had this one on release day since I pre-order it, but still haven’t read it. It’s the last book in the Night Prince series. I seam to delay those last to near last books in a series. Who really wants their favorites to come to an end?

 

 

 

Tempted & Taken – Another one I pre-ordered and had on release day. Now this one I’ll be getting to soon. No worries on it. Just didn’t get to it near release; because of the holidays. 

 

 

 

Need To Finish Series

 

Chicagoland Vampires Series – I’ve got one to read in this series, the last book, and then I’ll have finished it. I want to try the new series Heirs of Chicagoland that’s coming in July 2018, so I have a few months to finish the series; before the new series starts.

 

 

 

I also need to finish The Dresden Files & Charley Davidson series’s that I started in 2017.

 

 

 

 

What books or series are you finally going to try this year?
I’d love to hear from you!

I was born and raised in Northern Indiana. I’m an outdoor sun loving reader living near San Fransisco. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. I’m the owner, reviewer, and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. My favorite animals are horses & dogs. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy.

Randomness – Adult Coloring

 

Randomness!!
I love books, but I also do other things in life. One of those other things I like to do is Adult Coloring. I mainly do this when family visits, not sure why, but that’s the time I really dig in. I thought I’d share some of my random pages I colored and the adult coloring books I received or purchased.

(All items link to Amazon!)

 

 

Here are all the Adult Coloring Books I currently have. The Amazing Swirls I got for 2017 Christmas from my hubby. All the others I got in 2016 for Christmas. The Geometric Designs, Horse and Animal Designs are all relaxing and ones I like. The only one I don’t care for is the Happy and Energized. It feels to cluttered and some pictures have to much on them. 

 

 

My mother-in-law bought me this HORSE coloring book. I really love horses and this one is perfect for me. This past Holiday I’ve been digging into the Horse Coloring Book and the Amazing Swirls. Always around the Holidays I dig into my Adult Coloring books and for the rest of the year, it’s here and their, but when the Holidays come, it’s color color color. 

 

 

 

For Christmas I got this huge set of 200 Gel Pens. I really like the verity of colors. Some people don’t like choices, but I do and I’ve been using them in my coloring.

 

 

This picture below is one I did in the Amazing Swirls coloring book.

 

 

And, last I picked up the good vibes/motivation and cats coloring book as a Christmas gift to my mother. 

 

 

Do you like to Adult Color?
What coloring books have you enjoyed?

TMST: Goal Check for 2017

 

Happy New Year! Did everyone survive the Holidays and New Year, ok? I’ve still got family in town, but we made it into the New Year. Only downside is my hubby and son rang in the New Year with colds. Yep!!! Bummer for them.

 

Today we are looking back at our 2017 new year resolutions/goals. My goals/resolutions where very simple for 2017.

 

What’s my 2017 New Year’s Resolutions:

 

  1. To continue to limiting reviews and requests on NetGalley.
  2. To pick up books from the library. The library love challenge should help me with this one.
  3. To start and try to finish a new series; either Jane Yellowrock, Shadow Reader, or Elemental Assassin. 

 

So, How did I do?

 

  1. I did ok with limiting my reviews. At the end of Dec. I had several authors I review for have books coming out, so I’ve got 6 review books to get too ASAP. As for NetGalley I’ve been staying off the site, only go their when their is a book I really really want to request, which they are rare. I’ve been waiting for books to come out, so I can get them at my library instead.
  2. I did wonderful with picking up books from the library. I picked up 67 books/audiobooks for myself from the library in 2017 setting my library card on fire.
  3. I started the Jane Yellowrock series. I haven’t finished the series and I’m on book 8. Still a ways to go, but I did start a new series.

 

I feel good about my 2017 goals/resolutions.
How did you do with your goals from last year?

 

Next week will be all about goals for 2018: What are your goals for 2018?

2017 End Of The Year Book Tag

 

I ran across this tag on Under the Covers Book Blog back in November and I totally planned on doing this post in Nov, but forgot about it until now. Next year I’ll have it ready before December. ^_^ Now I’m not going to do the YouTube video like Under the Covers, but I will answer the questions below. Feel free to comment with your answers or put up your own post. 

 

2017 End Of The Year Book Tag

 

Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

 

Ya, I’ve tried 2x’s to pick up and read Midnight Marked. I’ve grabbed it from my library for the 3rd time and hope this time I’ll acutely read it. Not sure why I’ve not been in the mood to read it. Maybe because it’s the second to last book in the series. I do seam to delay reading the ending of series books. 

 

 

 

Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

 

Most people pick christmas themed books or cozy mysteries. Me I enjoy them, but no matter what season we are in I’ll read anything. I think mainly at the end of the year I like to do re-reads of my favorite series. Stick with those books and authors that I love like Nalini Singh and Ilona Andrews. I have a lot of family visiting for the holidays so to really dig into something new isn’t really possible. 

 

 

 

Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

 

All the releases I’m waiting for now will be in the new year 2018.

 

What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

 

Midnight Marked, Danger’s Race, & Tempted and Taken

 

 

 

Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?

 

Nope

 

Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?

 

Yes! Sign up is live for the library love challenge I’m hosting along with Brooke Blogs. I will be participating in the Library Love Challenge, The Series That Never… Ends Challenge hosted by Delighted Reader, Audiobook Challenge hosted by Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer, Try Something New Challenge hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup, Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight and the March Take Control of Your TBR Pile hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer

 

As for books I’m trying to read my box of books I own, grab stuff from the library, and also read those books I’ve bought on my eApps. I’m doing something fun for next year in that I’m asking you, my followers, to pick my next read for me. Stop by and help me out and once you vote you get to enter the giveaway for a $5 Amazon GC. 

 

 

Well that takes care of the questions for the end of the year book tag. What are your answers to the questions?

 

 

I was born and raised in Northern Indiana. I’m an outdoor sun loving reader living near San Fransisco. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. I’m the owner, reviewer, and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. My favorite animals are horses & dogs. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy.
