Ali's Weekly Wrap Up and To Be Read List (6/30/14)

So this past week I've been reading a lot.  I have two books that I'm reading at this time, one audio, one paperback and an ebook. I finished one book this past week and will be posting the review this upcoming week.  

This past week I've also been working on the blog, working on a new newsletter and a few new features that I'm going to be working on.  I'm very excited to get back to blogging. 

Sawyer The only doctor in Buckhorn County, Kentucky, Sawyer Hudson knows a thing or two about saving lives. But when he rescues the beautiful Honey Malone from a car wreck and nurses her to health at his home, he finds himself dreading the day she's well enough to leave. Because now that he's met the woman of his dreams, he's not about to let her go. Morgan Buckhorn's big, bad sheriff, Morgan Hudson, wants a wife one who's even-tempered, undemanding and content with small-town life. So why can't he stop thinking about brazen Misty Malone? The dark-haired city girl is downright aggravating; not to mention shes found herself on the wrong side of the law. But though she may not be perfect, Morgan is hell-bent on convincing her they'd be perfect together!

This review will be posted later this week at some time.  Hopefully this week I'll have more books read to share with you all.

Showcase Sunday #5

Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here. - See more at: HERE

Hey everyone, it's that time again time to showcase all the great books I have gotten lately.  I know I haven't posted one of these in a while, so I have a few books to show you.  Also, I went to Lori Foster Reader and Author Get Together a few weeks ago and ended up with tons of books, but I'm going to do that in a whole other post this upcoming week.  So, let's get started shall we!

The Badger Knight  * A Million Ways Home * The Defiant * Destined for Doon * The Swift Boys & Me * Finding Ruby Starling  * Revenge of the Flower Girls  *  Revenge Wears Prada *

I had a great couple of weeks as you can see, I do have more books from the Lori Foster Event, but that's for another post, like I said above. I want to thank Scholastic and Simon & Schuster for this great list of books. Also a huge thanks to Zondervan for Destined for Doon (ARC). 

I"m very excited to read so many of these including Destined for Doon and Revenge Wears Prada.  Also I've been waiting for The Defiant to complete my set of The Forsaken Series. 

So what books did you receive this past week?

Teaser Tuesday: #39

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser. 

Okay, maybe a little. She'd been as fascinated as everyone else when the aliens made contact two years ago, but their secretive nature made her stomach feel heavy, like she'd eaten a dozen Taco Bell double-decker burriots in one sitting. And as much as she wanted to travel, leaving Earth wasn't what she'd had in mind.

So, here is a peak into what I'm reading and I must say right now, look at this cover! Isn't it beautiful? Gah.  But anyway, what are you reading? Care to tease, leave me a bit of what you are reading in the comments below or link me to your teaser Tuesday!  I hope you all have a great day and as always...

Happy Reading!

It's Monday...What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Book Journey!
So, I'm finally back in the swing of things and have so much to read and share with you all.  Reviews, giveaways, and so much more is to come in the next several weeks.  But, right now it's time to check in and see what I'm reading.  
Insurgent by Veronica Roth 
(Yes I know, don't shoot me please.  I still haven't read it, but I am now)
One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

Ali Talks: The Lori Foster Reader & Author Get Together

 Convention Fun

I had to much fun this past weekend, as some of you know I try to go to a few conventions a year and Lori Foster's Reader and Author Get Together (#RAGT14) is one of them.  This year was a bit different, but still had a blast.
