Change of Plans/News

Add to Memories Share
WoW I did not realize how long it has been since I have not posted here. I am a bad blogger *G*
So about the change of plans. My fiance and I decided we are to Georgia in November instead of October. We want to spend thanksgiving with the family so that is why we decided to go during Thanksgiving.

Last book I was reading was 20 Times A Lady. I have finished the book awhile ago but never posted about it *BadGirl* LoL. 20 Times A Lady By: Karyn Bosnak is a must read for all chicklit lovers.

Delilah realizes she had reached her limit of the number of man she wanted to sleep with. She does not want to go over her limit of 20 man. Delilah goes on the road trip to find the man and to see which one is the right one and if things will work out with one of the man. Will thing work out with one of the 20 man?

This author will have you laughing the whole time as you are reading this book. I felt like I was on the road trip with her and she was actually talking to me. I loved this book and I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.

I have not been on here in awhile because I didn't get to much reading done. I had a bad headache for two days and it would not go away for anything. I also had a cold. I got over that YaY! Recently i had a pink eye which also cut into my reading time because I was not able to see right. I am feeling better and I will be continuing my reading. I am still reading 20 Times A Lady By: Karyn Bosnak the book is not boring at all. I love this book and this author is so funny. As you read her book you will feel like you are right there with her and she is talking with you.

My fiance and I are planning a vacation to Georgia to vist my Uncle & Auntie :-) We are going in October not sure what date yet but we will be staying for atleast a wk or two. They have a computer so that is a good thing because I will miss my best friend Rachael and I would love to talk with her while I am away and also keep up with my blog and emails :) Well that is all for now time for me to go back to reading :-) So I can let my BFF how I loved the book and thank her for telling me about this book and the author. I will be looking forward to reading more books by this author. 20 Times A Lady is a *MUST READ*

What I am reading now

Add to Memories Share
My best friend has told me about this book that I am currently reading now. 20 Times A Lady By:Karyn Bosnak
I am so happy she did tell me about this book. I am really enjoying this book and this author is so funny. I will be looking forward to reading more books by her.

Blurb for the book:

How many men does it take to find true love?

Delilah Darling's magic number was supposed to be twenty. She always thought she'd find the perfect guy by the time she'd slept with twenty of them. But when she wakes up naked in her disgusting boss's bed after a drunken night out, she's filled with regret -- and realizes she's hit her self-imposed limit. Unwilling to up her number but unable to imagine a life of celibacy, Delilah does what any girl in her situation would do: she tracks down every man she's ever slept with in a last-ditch effort to make it work with one of them. A hilarious romp through Delilah's past loves, 20 Times a Lady proves that in the end, numbers don't matter. True love will come when you're open and ready to accept it.

My 25th Birthday

Add to Memories Share
August 29th was my 25th birthday :)
I had so much fun on my birthday. My best friend took me out to get my hair cut and got it straighten as well. We also went and got our eyebrows done and our nails :) Then we went out to lunch :) We had so much fun together. Love my hair cut and my pretty nails & my eyebrows look good now.

My fiance took me out to dinner at an all you can eat buffet. Very good food. He got me balloons and a card :) I also got phone calls from family & friends wishing me a happy birthday. I got some beautiful ecards from family, friends & authors :)

My friend Ally had sent me a birthday gift :-) A candle from Bath & Body works. Smells so good. A mug that says Shhh...I'm Reading also with some very nice book thongs. One says Happy Birthday and the other has nice beads on it with a heart. Loved it.

One of my favorite authors has sent me a gorgeous necklace with a heart on it for my birthday. Loved it. The author is Cathryn Fox :-)

That's all for now :-) I had a wonderful time on my birthday :-)

SLAVE TO SENSATION

Nalini Singh

Berkley / September 2006


Slave to Sensation



Welcome to a future where emotion is a crime and powers of the mind clash brutally against those of the heart.



Sascha Duncan is one of the Psy, a psychic race that has cut off its emotions in an effort to prevent murderous insanity. Those who feel are punished by having their brains wiped clean, their personalities and memories destroyed.



Lucas Hunter is a Changeling, a shapeshifter who craves sensation, lives for touch. When their separate worlds collide in the serial murders of Changeling women, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities…or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation.

Lesson Learned

Add to Memories Share
I am calling this a lesson learned. My fiance had told me to call in to make sure I had an appointment today. Once you read this you will see why I am calling it a lesson learned *G*

I had an appointment today at 7:30 a.m. Yes very early and I had got up at 6:30 to be there on time. I waited for three long hours. I am so annoyed & tired. I was told everyone that was there had an appointment at 7:30 a.m. I am like WTF aren't you's suppose to know when to have people come in and not have everyone all waiting at the same time. After three long hours I was told I am not suppose to come in today Grrrr. Cathy is the lady who has been taking care of me with this bruise on my leg. I am just happy it is going away.

When I got there and saw her after three hours she was confused on me being there. I said I was told to come in I even had an appointment paper I showed her. She said didn't you tell the doctor you was already checked and taking care of. I said yes I did but he told me to come in. So I am here. She said it doesn't say you have an appointment today and what you are here for. So I got out of my bed so early just for all this BS run around.

I didn't even get any sleep. I was not able to sleep cause everytime I looked at the time I said there is no point for me to go to sleep I have to get up so early. It was around 3 a.m. when I was looking at the time. Yes I know I should have been in bed way early but I couldn't sleep for some reason *G* I am just happy the lady Cathy looked at my leg and told me she sees that it is clearing up. I so can't wait for this bruise on my leg to go away.

Well that is enough with me complaining about my Tuesday LoL

Devarian Exile Review

Add to Memories Share
Here is a review for Devarian Exile By: Sierra Dafoe.
I read this ebook on May 2006.

Author: Sierra Dafoe
Book Title: Devarian Exile

I just finished reading Devarian Exile what an amazing story. This book is different from any other book I have read. I am really glad to have read this book. The characters were all wonderful and perfect for this story. Soleyla was a woman who knew exactly what she wanted and she got it. The pleasure slaves were excellent. The sex scenes in this book were incredible. This book has inspired me to read more books like this one. I will be looking forward to reading more books like this. I just hope they are as good as Devarian Exile. I can't wait to for the other books to this series come out. I am really looking forward to reading more books by Sierra Dafoe. Thank you Sierra for a wonderful well written book.
