Blame It On Texas By Amie Louellen
Blame It on Texas - Amie Louellen

i been reading this off and on for 10 days. This a sexy and fun read. Couldn't stop thinking about it. I been wondering why i haven't seen any blonde cowboy romance til i stumbled upon this book. This book is about a woman returning to Texas and want Ritt Mccoy to sign the divorce papers so she can return to her own life but proven to be difficult because Ritt doesn't want a divorce nor ready to sign divorce papers in the beginning. She pegs him as stubborn and he thought the same of her. The bickering between them is funny and i had a good laugh. They dance around desire and push away. They are the most stubborn characters i ever seen til everything start changing. Shelby and Ritt set on a journey of hurt, finding love again and happiness. Unfortunately this is definitely a HEA, no surprise there but i am happy about that though. I enjoyed this book and i definitely check out more from this author.

What I Did For Love by Shannon Elizabeth Phillips
By Susan Elizabeth Phillips What I Did for Love (Reprint) - Susan Elizabeth Phillips
bookshelves: library-booksfavorites 
Read from January 09, 2015 to October 08, 2016

 

I've been reading this book on and off for two years and also been between books since then. It's safe to say that i am happy to finished reading the book and fangirled twice. Once when Laura and Paul finally are together and made love to each other. The second time which would be when the book ended and happy endings were in order. There was drama, heartbreak, feels, scandals, anger, anguish, humor, love, lies and deception in this book but love, honor and devotion in marriages is what matters most at the end. I'm so happy that georgie got her happy ending with bram and got remarried and also finding her redemption. I even love chaz and Aaron. I had a feeling that Laura would end up with Paul and Aaron end up with Chaz. What's funny is how far paparazzi, the leeches goes for a honest buck, hell bent on destorying celebrities but love free food. I enjoyed reading this and planning on rereading it years from now. This is the first book i have read by Shannon and plan on reading more from her soon! ♏

Vegas Love By Jillian Dodd
Vegas Love - Jillian Dodd
Read from November 30, 2015 to November 13, 2016

 

I loved the long epic vegas crazy adventure and feeling like i was going to cry when Ashlyn did what she did to Cash. I love the hot hookup in vegas at a wedding and it was quite steamy to say atleast. There was scandalous b*tches, manipulated people working for her, love, promises, vegas vows, teasing, cheating, happiness, jealous exes, one unforgettable wedding that is impossible to forget and leeches want to get your story then twist it around like a spider spinning it's web of lies. I laugh really hard when i read this book and had little fangirl sessions. I love Cash. He's romantic, sexy and sweet. I'm glad however that everything work out for her mother and love how the story ended. This is the first book i read by this author and enjoy reading it. Can't wait to read more by author.

The Twelve Tasks of the Festive Season -- TA's Reading List (& Matching Activities)

 

Thanks to Moonlight Reader and Obsidian Blue for hosting yet another great game ... this looks like so much fun (again)! -- I'm probably going to try pairing activities and reads whenever possible, so I'm going to include all the activities in my list below, too, in addition to my reading choices:

 

 

Task the First: The Winter Wonderland:

- Reading: A book that is set in a snowy place: Dylan Thomas - A Child's Christmas in Wales (audio version, read by the author himself)

- Activity: Take a walk outside and post a picture of something pretty you encountered on your way.

 

Task the Second: The Silent Nights:

- Reading: A book set in one of the Nordic countries: Rose Tremain - Music and Silence, Kurt Aust - Das jüngste Gericht (The Last Judgment), or Åke Edwardson - Frozen Tracks

- Activity: Hygge: Put on your fuzziest socks, light a candle, and spend some time (reading) in front of the fireplace or your coziest nook. Post a picture if you want.

 

Task the Third: The Holiday Party:

- Reading: A book where a celebration is a big part of the action: Rex Stout - And Four to Go

- Activity: Make something that is considered party food where you are from, and post a picture of it on Booklikes.

 

Task the Fourth: The Gift Card:

- Reading: A book that you either received as a gift or have given as a gift: Since my recent birthday presents were almost all books, something from my birthday haul -- most likely either Ilija Trojanow - Der Weltensammler (The Collector of Worlds), Edwidge Danticat - Claire of the Sea Light, Jim Butcher - The Aeronaut's Windlass, Val McDermid - Splinter the Silence, Michael Connelly - The Crossing or Ian Rankin - Even Dogs in the Wild ... all of these are books I'd been planning to read sometime soon anyway. I may also be using some of these for other tasks, though (see, e.g., "Kwanzaa" and "Hanukkah").

- Activity: Give a book to a friend and post a picture of the wrapped present.

 

Task the Fifth: The Kwanzaa:

- Reading: A book written by an African-American author or set in an African country: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - Half of a Yellow Sun, or possibly Ilija Trojanow - Der Weltensammler (The Collector of Worlds) (see also "gift card").

- Activity: Make a donation to a charitable organization that operates in Africa.

 

Task the Sixth: The Hanukkah:

- Reading: Let the dreidel choose a book for you (note: I'm going to spin the dreidel when I'm actually getting ready to do this task):

   נ  Nun (miracle): Christopher Paolini - Eldest (audio version read by Kerry Shale)

   ג Gimel (great): Arthur Conan Doyle - The Valley of Fear (audio version read by Simon Vance)

   ה He (happened): Ian Rankin - Even Dogs in the Wild (see also "gift card")

   ש Shin (there, i.e. Israel): J.R.R. Tolkien - Letters From Father Christmas

- Activity: Make a traditional Hanukkah food like doughnuts or potato latkes. Post a picture, or tell us how they turned out.

 

Task the Seventh: The Christmas:

- Reading: A book set during the Christmas holiday season: Donna Andrews - The Nightingale Before Christmas

- Activity: Set up a Christmas bookstagram-style scene with favorite holiday reads, objects or decorations. Possibly also a cat.

 

Task the Eighth: The Movie Ticket:

- Reading: A book that has been adapted to a holiday movie: Frances Hodgson Burnett - Little Lord Fauntleroy (The screen adaptation starring Alec Guinness and Ricky Schroder is one of the Christmas staples on German TV.)

- Activity: Go see a new theater release this holiday season (this does not have to be a holiday movie).

 

Task the Ninth: The Happy New Year:

- Reading: (A coming of age novel or) any old favorite comfort read: Charles Dickens - A Christmas Carol (audio version performed by Patrick Stewart)

- Activity: Post a holiday picture of yourself from your childhood or youth.

 

Task the Tenth: The Holiday Down Under:

- Reading: A book set in Australia or by an Australian author (or a book you would consider a "beach read"): Thomas Keneally - Office of Innocence, Kerry Greenwood - Miss Phryne Fisher Investigates, or Peter Temple - Bad Debts

- Activity: Buy some Christmas crackers (or make your own) to add to your festivities and share some pictures.

 

Task the Eleventh: The Polar Express:

- Reading: A book that involves train travel: Martha Grimes - The Train Now Departing, or Agatha Christie - Murder on the Orient Express or The Mystery of the Blue Train

- Activity: Read a classic holiday book from your childhood, or tell a story about a childhood Christmas you'd like to share.

 

Task the Twelfth: The Wassail Bowl:
