Book Blogger Hop #59

Book Blogger Hop is another post I'm going to be trying out and this one has a topic each week, which is something I've been trying to bring to the blog.  I'm really excited about this one because I have a hard time coming up with something fresh to talk about and I'm hoping this helps.

7th - 13th - Do you tend to visit the same blogs each week but also try to look for new blogs? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

Lately I've been looking for new blogs to follow and read, though I still have a handful of the older ones that I read daily. I'm trying to branch out more and comment more as well. Hoping that will bring other blogs my way as well. 

 What about you, do you stick with the tried and true blogs or do you branch out and read new blogs?

Teaser Tuesday #156

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.

 There wasn't as much blood as one would expect from such a violent throat slashing, according to my uncle. I barley kept up with his account of the gruesome scene he'd attended early this morning, and my notes were looking rather scattered, much like my thoughts.

Have you reading this book yet? If not is it on your TBR shelf? It's been on mine for awhile now. I think it's time to actually read this one!

Cover Reveal: Back To You by Kimberly Kincaid

Today I'm so happy to share with you a cover reveal for author Kimberly Kincaid's newest upcoming release Back To You! I'm so excited and can't wait to read this book. Anyway, I can't wait any longer to show you this hot cover!! 

It's a standalone medical romance, a la Grey's Anatomy, only hotter. Anyone who has read my Station Seventeen (firefighter) series will recognize a few cameos, but this is NOT part of that series. It's a brand-new thing! All contemporary, no suspense, but plenty of action in the emergency room AND the bedroom.

Release day is February 12, 2019

His second chance is his only chance

Parker Drake wants exactly one thing—to fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor. Between his reputation as a rule-breaker and the six years that have passed since his first internship ended in disaster, he knows he’s only getting one shot at a second chance. He’ll do anything to put the past behind him and reach his goal…including work with the gorgeous ex-wife he’s never gotten over losing.

All work and no play make surgeon Charleston Becker a very happy woman. But when she’s tasked with mentoring her ex-husband through his second chance as an intern, her signature calm is put to the test. She’s not interested in re-hashing the heartbreaking circumstances that ended their marriage, and the six years that have passed haven’t made Parker less reckless. The last thing she’s willing to do is trust him—even if she does find him sexier than ever.

But familiarity breeds forgiveness, which then becomes a passion that threatens the careers Parker and Charlie have worked for. Can they turn their second chance into a happy ending? Or is history bound to repeat itself?

This steamy contemporary medical romance can be read as a standalone.

 Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet. When she's not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair known as "The Pleather Bomber", she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a USA Today best-seller and 2015 RWA RITA® finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. She resides in Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.

Let's Talk!

What do you think about this amazing cover? Do you like it, do you not, tell me what you think!

December TBR Plan

So as you can see I finally decided to test the waters and post a TBR, but as you can also see I've sort changed it up a bit. I'm trying to take away the pressure that a TBR used to put on me, honestly I think it was more of blogger pressure than reading pressure, but we shall see. Anyway, the idea behind this came from Girl in the Pages. Her TBR's are called a plan and I thought that was very fitting for me. It's just a plan, not a have to!  If you haven't checked her blog out, please go do so now, she's one of my favorite bloggers/blogs. I read this one pretty much every time she posts. 

Anyway, here we go. 

Reading Goal: 60 Books...So far this year I've read 114! 

I can't believe I've already reached my goal and have actually gone over, normally by this time I'm reading any and every small book I can get my hands on just to get caught up! This has been a great reading year and I'm super excited to start the next one. 

Here are my reading plans for December... Like I said above, these are just the plans and I'll let you know at the end of the month how this goes.


ARC'S (For Review)

(These ARC's are all for Jan 2019)

That's Not What I Heard - I'm really excited to read this one! It sounds wonderful and something that I'm going to enjoy. It also sounds like a fast and exciting read. 

Secondhand Wishes - Now this one I honestly just got from Scholastic a couple of days ago. It looks and sounds fantastic. Can't wait to see if I'm right about this one. I'll make sure to let you all know my thoughts as soon as I'm finished. 

The Ice Garden - This book is the one, out of the three, that I'm the most excited about. I've had this one for about a month and it keeps calling to me...Read me! If you don't know about this book, go check this one out. It sounds amazing and right up my alley! I mean come on who wouldn't get excited about a magic ice garden? 

Newer Release 

Amber & Dusk - This book was just released in November but I didn't get to it! It's another one that I keep looking at and dying to dive into. It's another fantasty story and I love reading those at any time of the year.  

Back Titles 

Still Me - This is a book that I started but stopped and put it on hold for a little bit. Mainly because I'm scared it's going to disapoint so much. I loved the first book, like cried my eyes out but loved it so much. The second not so much, but I still liked it. I'm worried about this one, but I still have to know what happens! Have you ever felt like that? 

The Afterlife of Holly Chase - I meant to read this one last year, but when I ordered it from Amazon it didn't come in fast enough. By the time it did it was already after Christmas. So I promised myself I would read it this year! If you don't know anything about this one, it's supposed to be like the Scrooge story. The top line on the book cover got my attention. Every Scrooge deserves a second chance... 



Alright, so there is my first TBR in a long time, but then again I feel good about it just being a plan. No pressure! I'll let you know how I do at the end of the month. I hope you all have a great month and wish me luck.  

Have you read any of these books? What's your reading plan this month? I would love to know what you're reading!

30th - December 6th- If you could travel back in time to purchase the first printing of a specific novel, what book would that be? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

Another great question this week. There are so many books that I would love to have the first printing of.  So let's see, I would love a first printing of The Lord of the Rings books. I would also love the first printings of The Magician: Apprentice by Raymond E. Feist. Thost books are some of my all time favorites.
