Feature & Follow Friday........


Hello all, it's that day of the week where we learn new things about each other and discover new blogs along the way.  We also help each other by becoming followers of one another.  Normally that following would be through GFC (which would be great if you'd still take a few seconds to do), but with that being eliminated for certain blogs (a big boo-hiss to that) I now ask that you follow through a RSS Feed (or Twitter, FB, or email) which you can find to the right.  I want to thank all of you ahead of time who choose to become a follower and make sure to let me know in the comments if you're new so I doubly make sure to follow you back.  And now for this weeks get to know me question....

Q: Christmas in July! Someone gives you a gift card for two books (whatever that costs). What two books will you buy?

 

A:  HMMMMM, not sure if there are any books coming out this month that I'm dying to get.  So I'm going to cheat a bit and use my gift cards to pre-order TIME UNTIME by Sherrilyn Kenyon (releases Aug. 7th) and DOUBLE TIME by Olivia Cunning (releases Nov. 1st).  Those two series are just a few of my auto-buys.

  1. It's not cheating to pre-order! You're still buying them, you just gotta wait. I honestly didn't consider pre-order books, but that's mostly because I'm extremely impatient.

    As for Sookie Stackhouse, I did enjoy the last book. It wasn't my favorite, but at this point in the series I'm not really in it for the story line anymore. I'm in it for more the fact that I've been reading the books for the past 6 or so years and it's comfort reading for me. *sigh* It's hard to see a good series end.

    Following back!

  2. I'll be reading the first book in the Dark-Hunter series soon and am looking forward to it because I really enjoyed Sherrilyn Kenyon's Chronicles of Nick series.

    Thanks for stopping by and following! Following you back via GFC.

  3. Awesome picks! I'm dying for Olivia Cunning's book. Dark-Hunter - LOVE this series. I'm a bit behind though, still have to read book #21 before this comes out. One of a few series I can think of that hasn't run its course 20+ books in.. it's still going strong I think :0)

    New follower. My FF.

    1. Alison, Olivia's series is referred to as Sinners on Tour and revolves around the super sexy members of a rock band. They're all contemporary with lots of sexiness, a bit of bdsm depending on the character as well as a tiny bit of m/m (but that again depends on which character is being featured, since one of the band members is bi and enjoys menages). The two books out so far are predominantly m/f and definitely scorching hot. The guys really are all drool-worthy and give a girl lots of naughty thoughts.

      She also has another series out about another rock band. That series is One Night With Sole Regret and are short stories/novella-ish. I just started reading the first one, Try Me, and am really liking the sexiness/playfulness of the characters. The band members play heavy metal and have tats and piercings and again inspire lots of naughty dreams.

      Btw, when it gets closer to the release day of the third Sinners book, I'll be holding a giveaway for the first two books in paperback. So if I've tempted you, be on the lookout for the giveaway in mid-October.

  15. I think I'd have to pre-order books too. I think it's really fun waiting for a book that you know you want to arrive. Great choice and not cheating! :D
