[memes] Reading Round the World, Girl Talk & My Reading

I wanted to meme. And only had one weekly post to do it. So there's a whole lotta memeage happening in this post. You might have to scroll down a bit to get the one you're looking for. 😸

There was a lot of peopling, yall. USO and food pantry and I need a nap. lol We got some nice rain and I did some work around the house. Some more freaking snow but it didn't stick. Got some solid reading in and actually found my first 5 star read (I think) for the year. Woo! 

Other than that the only other big thing is Blog Ahead starts this weekend! Eeee! I need this bad. It's all about pre-scheduling blog posts and getting ahead in your posts. Totally what saves the blog. I love having those extra posts done and ready to go for when I need a blogging break or have a blogger slump or kitty emergency. Anyone interested is welcome to join in!

[quote-tastic] 4 stars-- Dragon Soul (Dragon Falls #3) by Katie MacAlister

Katie MacAlister is something...special. I enjoy her humor. The little bit of silly and ridiculous mixed into the action and romance. Her characters just make me laugh.

Nipple nubs, indeed! This quote gave me a chuckle.

2.5 stars-- More to Love (A Perfect Fit #3) by Alison Bliss

Whew. Yall. Usually if I'm gonna have issues it's the heroine. But this time? This time...nope. Fab heroine. The hero, though? Sweet Baby Jesus.
The Gist: Max in his fucked up brilliance decides to impersonate a health inspector so he can run off a new food truck that's taken up in the area and is harming his friend's restaurant. And in the process is a total wanker shit even though he's completely taken by and falling for the curvy redhead who owns said food truck he's trying to run off.

4 stars-- Dark Redemption (Dark Paradise #3) by Angie Sandro

Oo I liked it! I won Dark Redemption ages ago and just let it sit on my Netgalley self but I finally dove in and, damn, yall. It was worth the time!

The Gist: Mala's kept the fact she can communicate with ghosts a secret her whole life and has a life altering decision to make. There's something evil out there brutally murdering teenage boys as some sort of sacrifice and her otherworldly talents and the support of her boyfriend might be the only way they'll find justice.

3.5 stars-- Forbidden Fling (Wildwood, #1) by Skye Jordan

Whew! Talk about some sizzling chemistry! I enjoyed Forbidden Fling quite a bit. A flawed hero, a heroine out of options, life dreams at odds with one another, undeniable attraction, a family feud. It kept me eagerly listening.

The Gist:  
Delaney inherited a vacant bar. It's pretty much sat crumbing for years but with the threat of demolition it's now or never where renovation is concerned. But her presence and reviving the bar bring up all sorts of ugly memories connected with a death on it's premises years earlier and  put a snag in Ethan's future as well.

[tasty delights] Peanut Butter Cream Pie w/ Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Crust

The #BlogAllAboutIt prompt this month is our favorite scent. And I was like hmmm what in the world can I do for that? I do love a lot of scents. From my current perfume to puppy breath. Cut grass is nice. And even though I don't eat them I love the scent of coconut things. Coffee, too. 

But then I was like...cookies! Well, really, all baked goods. My mom is a baker. She does everything from regular cookies to wedding cakes. People LOVE her baked goods and are always wanting them for special events. The funny thing is growing up? I didn't want her baked goods. I wanted a Publix white cake for my birthday. I didn't want that fancy stuff she makes. No ma'am! lol But I do love the smell of baking. lol My poor mom. She was a total champ, though, and got me those Publix cakes. Even brought one nearly 600 miles from FL to NC one year before we had a Publix because at 35, yeah, I still don't eat most of her baking. So bad, I know! lol

Well. This week. Whew. We had snow. Again. But it's already gone and we're back to 60 during the day, 20s at night. Eh. I guess I'll take it. lol
