Would You Rather Book Tag

Thank you to  Sarah @ Btween The Pages for tagging me for this book tag!  I love doing fun tags!

Would you rather…

  1. Have an unlimited money for Ebooks, or a 5,000 dollar B&N giftcard?

    I would rather have unlimited money for ebooks.  I don’t read paper books anymore, and nothing is more irritating than when you can’t find a book you want to read on Kindle Unlimited or on the library’s website.

  2. Meet any deceased poet, or J.K. Rowling?

    I’m not into poetry, but I would choose to meet J.K. Rowling and bring my niece Jill with me.  She’s a HUGE Harry Potter fan and watching her talk to her favorite author would bring me lots of joy.

  3.  Write the world’s most famous book, or visit the world of your favorite book for one day?

    Huh.  This is a hard one.  My favorite book is Rock Chick and I’ve been to Denver.  So I guess I would rather write a famous book.

  4. Choose  Jack  or Peter?  (Insert characters from your favorite fictional love triangle.)

    This fictional love triangle is from the Body Movers series by Stephanie Bond.  I choose Jack 1 million percent over Peter.  I love Jack.  I loved Jack from the beginning and he’s the perfect guy for Carlotta.  By far.

  5. Experience Hogwarts in a very realistic and accurate virtual reality, or travel around the world for a year, at no cost.

    Well, I’m not a Harry Potter person, so I would choose travelling around the world for one year.  Even if I was a Harry Potter fan, I would choose that.

The Goodreads Book Tag 2

Thanks!

I want to thank fellow blogger Icebreaker for tagging me!

WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK YOU MARKED AS READ?

all about the d

I enjoyed All About the D way more than I thought I would.  Josh is just such a great guy, it’s easy to fall for this book.

WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

full package

I like Lauren Blakely’s book because they are told from the male POV, but they are all kind of predictable, which makes them a little boring, but yet, I still read them.

WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO READ NEXT?

Beauty and the Mustache

Just came in from the library today.

DO YOU USE THE STAR RATING SYSTEM?

Yes.  I really wish Goodreads would allow us to use half stars!

ARE YOU DOING A 2017 READING CHALLENGE?

Yes, I’m doing the Goodreads challenge, and I’m halfway to my goal of 100, which is ironic, because I feel like I’m reading very slow lately.

DO YOU HAVE A WISHLIST?

No.  I have Kindle Unlimited so I just peruse daily to see what’s new.

WHAT BOOK DO YOU PLAN TO BUY NEXT?

Don’t buy books, but if I were to get an Amazon gift card for Mother’s Day, I would buy Until Sage by Aurora Rose Reynolds.

DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVORITE QUOTES?

Sadly, not really.  I’m not one to focus on quotes.  I have a favorite quote from a TV Show – 30 Rock, Season 3, Episode 8, Reunion: “Rich 50 is middle class 38.”  Cracks me up.

WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS?

Kristen Proby, Sawyer Bennett, Harper Sloan, Aurora Rose Reynolds,

HAVE YOU JOINED ANY GROUPS?

I’m in the I Love Alpha Males group, Subscription Addiction, Blogger Lift and Book Travelling Thursday.

Friday Five: TV Shows Guaranteed to make you laugh

Thanks to fellow blogger Maddie at Well Read Twenty Something for the great idea for a fun Friday post.  Here are my five shows that are guaranteed to make you laugh.

The Office (US).  This is my all time favorite show.  I’ve watched it so many times and I can’t get enough.  Everyone has worked with someone like Dwight, Angela or Creed.  It’s the best and you should totally watch!  On Netflix.

Arrested Development.  This is a show that was far ahead of its time, and is so smart and funny it’s amazing it wasn’t more popular.  Narrated by Ron Howard and starring an all star cast, this show will make you laugh every week.  You can find on Netflix.

Modern Family.  This show has been on for 8 years and has not lost a beat.  Just as funny as it was the first season.

30 Rock.  This show about a show has such an incredibly talented cast and an incredibly sarcastic female lead.  My favorite episode is when Liz goes to her high school reunion.  I watch that episode when I need a good laugh.

Brooklyn Nine Nine.  This ensemble cop comedy is hilarious.  It’s a true ensemble cast – not just focused on Andy Samberg and it’s the best.

Happy Friday.

Monthly Wrap Up – April

I had a really light April, and I don’t know why!  This month I read:

 

april wrap up

Blush for Me by Kristen Proby.  I really enjoyed this book.  I love this series, and pretty much anything Kristen Proby writes.

Roman by Sawyer Bennett.  I enjoyed this book, but coming off the awesome book before (Max), it was going to be hard to top.  One thing I did enjoy was Brian’s POV.

Sweet Spot by Stella Rhys.  I loved this book.  Funny as heck.  Would recommend.

Hard Ball by Heather Stone.  I didn’t do a blog post on this book because it was short, but I didn’t love this book.  I gave it 2 1/2 stars.  I would skip.

Twist by Kylie Scott.  Book 2 in the Dive Bar series had a real kick ass heroine.  Interesting story and I love the folks from this quirky Idaho town.

Friends Without Benefits by Penny Reid.  I read the first book 3 years ago, and don’t know why I waited so long to read the second book.  Enjoyed this book.

Paths by Brynne Asher.  Book 2 in the Vines series didn’t disappoint.  I’m a big fan of Brynne Asher.  Free on Kindle Unlimited.

Love Hacked by Penny Reid.  Book 3 in the Knitting in the City series was good.  The hero had an interesting story that made the book intriguing.  Really enjoying this series.

Really bummed by my numbers for April.  My library just got an influx of e-books and I have holds on a bunch of good ones.  Check back next month for reviews.

Happy reading.

Anything but Books tag

What do you do when you’re only 20% into a book and want to do a blog post?  Find random posts on blogs you follow and do them!  I’m doing the Anything But Books tag, thanks to Lauren@ Wonderless Review’s blog.

Name a cartoon(s) that you love.

I don’t watch cartoons on TV, but I love animated movies.  My favorite is Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2.  Though there are so many I love, these are the ones I watch most often.

animated films

What is your favorite song right now?

 Hmm.  This is a hard one.  I listen to such a wide variety of music.  Going to say My Old Man by Zac Brown Band.  This song makes me cry every time I hear it.

What could you do for hours (that isn’t reading)?

That’s easy.  Watch TV.  I love TV.  It’s kind of an addiction.

What is something you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?

I love to watch golf on TV.  It was 70 degrees and beautiful this past Sunday (in Chicago) and I didn’t leave my house because the Masters was on.

What is your favorite unnecessarily specific thing to learn about (this can do with books, I guess)?

People.  I love getting to know people.  People like when you talk to them and listen to them and ask about their lives and families.

What is something unusual you know how to do?

I have a weird thing where I can remember dates.  Random dates.  I can tell you dates old co-workers started at their jobs.  I’m great with birthdays and anniversaries.  This ability is particularly helpful in trivia.

Name something you’ve made in the last year (and show us, if you can).

Not something I’ve made, but I have a “family wall” in my house that I’ve added to over the past year.

034

What is your most recent personal project?

Other than my family wall, I’m currently working on my son’s graduation party and planning to have t-shirt quilt made for him.

Tell us something you think about often (maybe while staring out of windows).

My family.  I’m always thinking about my kids.

Give us something that’s your favorite, but make it something oddly specific, not like your favorite food, but like your favorite food when you’ve been studying for hours and forgot to eat. Or, you know, something like that.

My favorite is to come home after a bad day and fill up my Dallas Cowboys wine glass with wine and veg out in front of the TV and watch sports.

Feel free to do this.  I’m not tagging anyone, but have fun!!!

Happy weekend.

March Reading Wrap Up

I apologize for my absence for the past week – I was on a beach in Florida:)

My March was pretty good, especially given that I didn’t read for an entire week.  I read:

march wrap up

Wardrobe Malfunction by Samantha Towle.  I really enjoyed this book.  The heroine was really sweet and funny.  Recommend.

Running Mate by Katie Ashley.  I enjoyed this book, but the heroine wore on my nerves a little bit.  I would still recommend.

Delivery Girl by Lily Kate.  I loved this book.  The hero is a hockey player (my favorite sport:) and the heroine was funny and witty.  Highly recommend.

Ryan by Jessica Gadziala.  Good book with a heroine who suffers from agoraphobia.  Not something you read about often.  Recommend.

Levi’s Blue by M. Leighton.  Interesting read about a blind woman who paints who meets a man who is interested despite her blindness.  Really enjoyed this and would recommend.

Saving Grace by Kristen Proby.  Cute novella.  Didn’t do a review because the book was so short.  Insta-love, which isn’t my favorite, but a cute read.  Recommend.

When I’m With You by Harper Sloan.  Listened to this book.  Love Harper Sloan’s alpha males.  Book was a little predictable, but still good and I would recommend.

Reign by Jessica Gadziala.  A good MC novel.  Tough topic in this book (human trafficking) but liked both main characters.  Recommend.

Tapping the Billionaire by Max Monroe.  This book was laugh out loud funny.  Both main characters are hilarious.  Highly recommend.

Melting Steel by C.M. Seabrook.  Did not really like this book.  Story was incredibly hard to believe and more insta-love.  Wouldn’t recommend.

Endurance by Amy Daws.  Second book in the Harris brothers series was just as good was the first.  Liked both characters.  Recommend.

Hoping for a good April.  Just got the new Kristen Proby and Sawyer Bennett books to read this week.

Happy reading.
