Meme-age! Oh The Food Noms, Yall! Plus New Pretties!

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. 😸

I CAN READ AGAIN!!!!! Yall! I'm damn near giddy. No, who am I kidding. I AM GIDDY!!! My eyes are cooperating for, really, the first time since July! And I read! And it was glorious! Ebooks and even print books. Hallelujah! It's still not perfect and by end of day things are going wonky but, yall, it's so much better. And I'm getting caught up on blog visits! I'm doing like 5 at a time and there are a couple hundred on my feed so some of yall, I'm sorry, I haven't gotten there yet. But I'm working on it! Woo! Aaaaaand...on with today's post. lol

For Review
I had two books arrive random on the doorstep this week for consideration. 
Other than that I didn't take on any new ones.

The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson -- I loved her books back in the day but it's been years since I picked one up so this was a fun arrival.

The It Girls by Karen Harper-- Never heard of it. It looks like it could be interesting.

Dating the Undead by Juliet Lyons-- This was a book club DNF. Not for me at all. Thankfully only 62 cents. lol

Edge of Glory Magan Vernon-- a friend was having trouble buying it so I bought it to see what it would do. It was free so no big deal. 

I picked up audiobooks of Moon called and Blood Bound. Love this series and am "re-reading" them in audio but my library only has the last part of the series.

Read This Week

The two Anna's were my favorite. Wilde's was good. Hoyt's good but dark. McKinlay I really liked until the end and it lost me. Bummer but okay.

Still...4 books!! (and a half-- Hoyts). That's dang close to what I read the entire month of August. lol So I'll take it!

Currently Reading
The Danger of Desire by Sabrina Jeffries-- I read this one then forgot to review it back when it released. oops! So I'm re-reading it again as I clean up my review pile :)

This Week's Planner

Sometimes planner pages click into place.  Other weeks this happens. lol
I just could not get it to work just how I wanted but, eh, when you bujo you kinda just go with it. So I'll suck it up for 2 weeks and hope it grows on me ;)

Top Ten: Books with Noms
aka heroes/heroines who own bakeries, bars, restaurants, etc.


Give It All by Cara McKenna-- She a rough around the edges bar owner. He's an uptight Brit in town on business and has a cat and OCD. It was very good.

Need You Tonight by Roni Loren-- He owns a restaurant. Filthy, delicious, kinky things are done. It was my first Loren and whew! Love!

At Last by Jill Shalvis-- She's a waitress who's fancied a hike in the woods but is directionally challenged. He's a...forest ranger. It's hilarious.

The Sweetest Thing by Jill Shalvis-- Funny and heartbreaking. She's rehabbing an inn with her long lost sisters and is all about the baking/cooking. The hero and her. They have some hard history. Namely, giving up a child for adoption when they were children themselves.

Shelter Mountain by Robyn Carr-- He owns a bar, she's escaping an abusive relationship and needs to eat and it's good. Heartbreaking but a wonderful read.

Taking a Shot by Jaci Burton-- She works in the family sports bar and has no time for athletes. Nope. And, then, well, look at that cover. Things change. lol

Desperado by Lisa Bingham-- Her restaurant is in danger and they enter an "old west" adventure to win the monetary prize. Old time garb, transportation, living off the land, etc. It was a fun adventure.

The Quiche of Death by MC Beaton-- Town newbie enters a food contest with... a store bought quiche and manages to kill someone with it. Oops!


Big Bad Beast by Shelly Laurenson-- My first Shelly Laurenston! He's a beta that likes to cook and is determined to feed her. It's his thing. There were a lot of noms. 

Fool's Gold Cookbook by Susan Mallery-- This one got a 5 star from me. Rare, I know! It's a novella written into a cookbook. A couple chapters then recipes that incorporate the food that was mentioned. The ones I tried were very good!

Question: 20th - 26th - Off the book topic - What is your favorite scary movie?
A: I am a pansy ass. I do not do scary. lol Book or movie. Nope. No, ma'am. I sure don't. I have a herd and if I do scary they'll scare the crap out of me with their late night knocking things about downstairs antics. I'd be all like my kitteh in the banner and never sleep again. lol
