[meme-age] New Reads, Bookish Settings I Want to Visit & a Christmas Favorite!

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. 😸

It was a slower reading week here than last week. Darn! But life has been super busy and I've been doing things other than reading so not unexpected. I managed to not buy a single book and only accepted one review book and am nearly done with it. Yay!

For those interested I have a giveaway going on that's planner related :)



For Review
I only snagged one this week. Wolf Hunger by Paige Tyler. I'd had it as an option for a LONG time but finally decided I was ready to read it. lol Nearly done and enjoying it.

Read This Week
 
I was pretty underwhelmed by Blood Oath. But I really enjoyed Midnight Rescue. I love the series so was fun to go back and finally read book one.

Currently Reading
So far so good! I'm about 70% done with Wolf Hunger. Things are just going all the hell so should be fun the next little while. lol

This Week's Planner
Same spread as last week. I do like doing the two weeks in one spread set up. I'll probably do that in 2018 for a while, too.




Top Ten: Bookish Settings I'd Love to Visit

  

Lucky Harbor because I just love that quirky little town Shalvis created.

The Ranch and Club Shadowland because omg I would so get my kink on in Loren and Sinclair's series. And maybe fine me a real good Dom? Hmmm.

 

Texas or, well, a real rodeo. I love Dell's series and how she brings the rodeo to life. Plus...cowboys.

And, really, there's a theme here. Copper Ridge and all the sexy damaged cowboys that Yates tries to wrangle.

And then just some generic ones. Wyoming and Montana because honest to goodness the cowboy sexiness that comes from those states. lol

Ireland because...the accents. Yall!

Regency England. Now, I don't think I'd want to stay too long but I would love to see some of the balls and dresses and men in tight breeches and country house parties. Woo!



Amazon | Review
Question: What's your favorite Christmas-themed read? 

A: Oh hands down A Virgin River Christmas by Robyn Carr. Yall this book. It had me laughing and bawling. An amazing hero and heroine with heart wrenching pasts that haunt them, a wonderful setting of Virgin River at Christmas, great use of secondary characters and just a lovely story of finding closure and peace, moving on with life and finding someone who heals your soul. It was just wonderful and unique in that it's modern day but Ian lives a very rustic life in a basic cabin. And it's winter. So lots of interesting little issues they had to deal with outside of the romance. Plus the cover is just lovely.
