{Meme-age} Reading...a little, Bailed on Books, Sexy Novellas!

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. 😸

Hey guys! I hope you're all doing wonderful. Things are still slow on the visiting and reading front here. My next eye appointment is Thursday and, yall, I've never been so eager to get in to see the doctor. lol Fingers crossed he has some plans for these eyes! This past week was busy even if not on the reading front. The #SupportTheTroopsAuction ended this past week and we raised a bit over $1100 for the USO. Yay!

And this weekend went to see Ed Sheeran play live in concert. It was...amazing. Since I'm not reading much and so reviews will be light in Sept I figured I'd start blogging some of these things so keep a look out for that later this week :)


Soooo. Reading. Still going slow. Ah! So new pretties have been slow, too. 
Making sure I don't get *too* far behind. 

For Review
 
I did take two books on for review. The Hunt by Chloe Neill I took on WAY before my eyes started acting up but it just arrived so you get a cute Gladys picture.

And Captive Cowboy by Lindsey Brookes. I reviewed the audio for book one so when book 2 came out on audio she contacted me. Total squee!

Currently Reading
 

I'm still "reading" on Linda Broady's To Marry a Texas Outlaw.
Honestly we're on day 11 of the book, now, and I'm only at 35%
It's not the book. It's my eyes. I'm just not reading hardy at all. But what I HAVE read has been real good!

I'm also listening to Captive Cowboy by Lindsey Brookes which I'm loving.

Top Ten: Books I've Most Recently Put Down

This wasn't too hard. This is actually my list for the entire year of books I've started and walked away from. Most of them I just wasn't in the right mood and will go back to at some point. Three happened in August and were just casualties of my eye frustration and I bailed on them within a chapter or two.

   

   


Beauty of the Beast by Rachel L Demeter-- the author was driving me CRAZY with sending like 6 "new revisions of the book" and I bailed.

Blood Like Poison by M Leighton-- eye casualty

Master Professor by Tara Sue Me-- The slight cheater vibe was giving me trouble but I liked it other than that

Midnight Target by Elle Kennedy-- Not in the mood for rom-suspense

Officer by Elena Davinski-- Eye casualty

Satisfaction by Lexi Blake-- I didn't hate it. I just wasn't hooked.

The Girl with the Clockwork Cat by Nikki McCormack-- Eye casualty

Wired by Julie Garwood-- Heck if I can remember why. lol



Yay! More Nancy Herkness! I love her books so was excited to see Second to None. Looks like a kick off novella for a new series. It's out next week! 9/12. Can't wait!
Billionaire chemist Max Varela is selling his company and leaving New York for good when Emily Wade bursts into his office, desperate for his help in funding her program for disadvantaged kids and shelter dogs. Seven years ago, he fell in love with her when she was married to another man. To fight the unbidden attraction, he cut off all contact—but he’s never forgotten her.

Ever since her husband died, Emily has poured her heart and soul into the after-school care center. Seeing Max reawakens the pain of her loss, but it also brings unexpected hope for the future. As emotions thought long gone resurface, the two begin a passionate affair that seems destined for a fairy-tale ending.

That is, until Max reveals that he’s moving to Chicago in a matter of weeks and wants Emily to uproot her daughter and her life to come with him. If a second chance at love is possible, someone’s got to give.
