2018 Reading Challenge

I epically failed my 2017 reading challenge for so many reasons, but I’m not going to list excuses.  I failed, that’s all there is to it.  My yearly goal is always 52 books–one per week– and I plan to stick to that goal.  However, I’m only setting aside about half of that for the Beat…

4:00 A.M. Thoughts….

It’s 4:00am and I just woke up from a dream with my dad in it.  Today would have been his birthday.  I think Leeloo had a sixth sense about it, because not only did she insist on being in my room last night, she laid on top of me the moment she got in here….

Anniversary Day!

So today the hubby and I are celebrating 25 years as a couple (13 married). This is what I gave myself as a gift. And some of you know I had surgery on my foot in December. It’s better, but not fully healed and now I have a broken ankle on the same side.  The…

In a funk today…

… Two days ago I had brilliant writing ideas…I have written exactly none of them down. My birthday just passed and for the first time EVER, I actually feel old.  Didn’t feel old on the days leading up, or the day, or even the days after.  But today… Today I feel ancient.   I’m in…

Review: Savage Winter

Review: Ugh! The angst in this story has increased tenfold from the last one. Another good read, even if the angst was a lot heavy. Joanna, Windhawk and Tag’s stories have continued with some cameos by old enemies and the emergence of new ones. As usual, all of the drama could have been avoided if…

Review: Savage Autumn

Review: This is a re-re-re-read for me. I’ve been in the mood for historical romance lately, particularly America historical romance. I don’t know what any current authors are writing and all my old-school favs seem to have comoletely changed up their style. It’s always good to go back to what you know.   This was…

Scanning the Library

So I took some advice and installed Book Catalogue and I’ve begun the very long and time consuming process of scanning all of my books. But Leeloo has decided to hold up the works. *sigh*  Gotta love cats and their lay-where-i-want attitudes.   Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/1633988/scanning-the-library

Updates and Issues

So I’ve done a little updating to my room & shelves.  Got a new cover for the chair since the cats won’t stay out of it, and I got some socks for the legs and my desk legs.  They’re cat peet!  …I mean feet, we say everything weird in my family.  But are they not the cutest?!…

Review: Under A Prairie Moon

Review: 3.5 Stars.   This was not at all what I expected.  I was in the mood for a historical Indian romance, but I never expected ghosts, curses and time travel!  I just opened up a book with a title that sounded interesting and this is what I got.  The story was surprisingly interesting.  A…

I Think I Have A Problem…

..Who am I trying to kid, I know I have a problem!  I just added a book to my library that has been sitting in a pile of books I bought before the holidays, only… I DON’T REMEMBER BUYING IT!!!!   Clearly I did, because it’s in my pile and no one else bought it…

Christmas Haul

As I’m updating my library, I realize I didn’t post my Christmas books.     A gift from my adorable little nieces:   Hubby really spoiled me this year!!     I’m so excited to get some reading in!!! Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/1627111/christmas-haul

Question About Goodreads…

How many people, who ran away from goodreads because of the insanity, still utilize it?  I’m mostly curious because I did like they way I was able to organize my library there.  Does anyone still have an account just for that?  I just don’t know if I can go back even for that.  Does anyone else use…
