False alarm

Ok, clearly Booklikes is still around, so the recent downtime was apparently temporary. I would just like to tell my friends, if I haven't already, that I'm also on Litsy, LibraryThing, Goodreads and Lbib. I'm also on Wordpress and Dreamwidth, but I never post any reviews on Wordpress. I do post the same reviews on Dreamwidth that I post here though, so if you're there you're welcome to friend me there too. I'm also on Facebook, but I don't post any reviews there either.

I'm Ilirwen on Libib too, but I'm not sure if there's a profile page as such.

Goodreads Semifinal Round Ready!

Got my vote on again.

 

 

Mystery was tougher for me since I really loved Ruth Ware and enjoyed the latest Louise Penny. Went for Ware though. 

 

Best historical fiction, I went for Diane Setterfield. Can't help it, loved that book.

 

Goodreads started glitching on me though so that is as far as I got. 

 

You should definitely vote if you haven't had a chance yet.

I have been having a blast reading for the Horror Aficionados 2019 A-Z Challenge. I think though I may have to change a few books out to fit the rules though. Just 7 books that I may have reads for to replace. I just need to go through my read books for the year again. 

 

Rules: Read a book whose title starts with each letter of the alphabet. IE: 1 Book whose title starts with A, one whose title starts with B, etc...

For the letters Q, X, Y and Z the book title does not need to START with these letters, but must contain them.

B-Big Sexy Love

C-Chosen Prey

D-  Dry Hard

E-Evidence of the Affair

Gaaaaah....

The last thing I needed after a day at work that was filled with a lot of stupidity was some random person leaving a idiotic comment on a review on GR. 

 

Why on earth did I even check...

 

I'm burying my head inside a book. Maybe with some wine on the side. 

See ya'll tomorrow.

ARC REVIEW A Highlander Walks Into a Bar by Laura Trentham

A Highlander Walks into a Bar (Highland, Georgia, #1)Highland, Georgia #1, This book was so enjoyable! All the characters not just the main ones were memorable; I'm glad this is the start of a series I already can't wait to read everyone else's story. I love reading Laura Trentham she has a great narrative voice and is so funny, her romance slow burning building the sexual tension between them until they are combustible and with a heartfelt and sweet ending that leaves me wanting more. I fell in love with Highland, Georgia it sounds like a wonderful place to live; except the humidity would probably kill me in the summer.

Rose and Isabel Buchanan love their hometown. Rose married into one of the founding families and after her husband died she kept his spirit and his love for the town alive by continuing on with his favorite time of the year, the Highland Games. Izzy loves this place just as much as her mother and she has fully accepted that her life will always be in Highland. Izzy usually trusts her mother's judgement so it blindsides her  when Rose comes back from her Scotland trip with more than just a scarf and earrings as souvenirs. The man her mother brought home to help organize the games could be after their land or money, but her mother is infatuated it's up to Izzy to keep things in check.

Alasdair Blackmoor use to be close to his uncle, Gareth, but that was before his father died and the truth came out. Alasdair hasn't seen his uncle since he was eighteen so when his mother calls him and tells him he needs to go to America to bring home his uncle before the American woman swindles away his inheritance he goes to appease his mother. He never expected to find a home away from home, his uncle the happiest he's ever seen, and the feisty and beautiful Isabel. Everything smooths out for the most part Rose has Gareth and Alasdair has Izzy and they are happy and the preparations for the games are going well but Gareth and Alasdair are hiding something from the girls; a big secret that can ruin both their relationships. 

Overall, such a joy to read. I laughed, I cried, I fell in love and with the epilogue teasing the next character's book I'm excited and can't wait for it.
