Covid Shopping! And Hi! Been a While!

 Hey Guys! I hope you're all doing well. I know the blog went silent for a long while. Yikes! I'm still not reading and not really cooking which...makes it hard to do a book/food blog. LOL I'm going to try and add a few things in now and again though still. Anywho. I'm surviving here. Ergs! If you're in the FB group you know I've been gaming a lot, there's a boy, and some of the random other stuff that's been going on.  Figured I'd start back in with some shopping. I didn't do anything TOO crazy during the pandemic lockdown but did pick up a few items that were fun. And let me tell you on the house front. Couponing for the WIN! I haven't had to hardly buy anything since December other than produce and dairy. LOL Which made things a lot easier during this whole mess. Nice having a mini store basically in the house ready to go. Bwahaha. 

Anywho. Hi!

We're EIGHT Today! Woo!

Woohoo! Happy 2020! It's a big day on the blog, too. We're EIGHT today! Holy cow!

I can't believe it's been eight years already. It's been...interesting to say the least. lol

Thank you all for being a part of it. It's been a blast.

The last few months have been pretty quiet here but hoping to come at 2020 strong and get back in the swing of things.

Hope yall have a good one!

Best Books of 2019!

I had a wonderful time reading the first half of 2019. I continued taking very few review books and focused on just reading for fun. Freebies, from the library, from my own shelves for a change. I tried out KU and picked up some random suggestions from friends. And it was fantastic! Things did go sideways mid September and I haven't really read since then but before that I read 144 total books. Which is pretty amazing since I've only read 3 since September! But I hit my Goodreads goal which is great. Anywho...


New to Me Authors-- 25

These were my favorites...

4 stars-- Two Men Walk into a Bar (at Christmastime) by Katy Regnery

A short story and it made me cry. Dammit! lol  Yall. Two Men Walk into a Bar (at Christmastime) was so cute! It's a catch up with two previous couples-- Asher/Savannah from The Vet and the Vixen and Zach/Violet from Playing for Love at Deep Haven. Impossible not to love.

The Gist: It's Christmas and two fellas meet at an airport bar after their flights home for Christmas are canceled due to snow. Their women? Well, they're not going to let a little snow get in the way of Christmas with their men. Sure not.

3 stars-- Merry Ex-Mas (Life in Icicle Falls #2) by Sheila Roberts

Ahhh! I wanted a warm fuzzy Christmas comfort read. Merry Ex-Mas was not it. It was a bit depressing, really. It was my first from Roberts and while I didn't hate it I really didn't love it either.
The Gist: A group of girlfriends who have been unlucky in love are having to deal with their ex-s. One ex coming back for their daughter's wedding (with new wife in tow), one ex wanting a second chance, and a young couple recently divorced and wondering if they've been too hasty.

3.5 stars-- Marrying Mr. English (The English Brothers 0.5) by Katy Regnery

Aw Marrying Mr. English was a sweet Christmas romance as you jump back in time to the parents from the series and watch them find their happily ever after way back in the 1980s.
The Gist: Tom is in a bind. If he doesn't find a wife in the next couple days...he'll lose his inheritance. Eleanora is a down on her luck waitress who's more than willing to join forces in exchange for a boost to her bank account. Perfect! A quickie marriage and they'll both have everything they wanted and can go their separate ways. But...things rarely go as planned.
