[memes] Romance Titles, Reviews & My Reads!

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. 😸

Whew! Another week down! I had a pretty good reading week. Got 1 off my blogger shame pile, finished 2 review books and read 2 just for fun.

Had the USO and the Food Pantry and both went great. I'm going to be teaching a coupon class at the pantry in May which is exciting.

On the home front lots of organizing, cleaning and purging. I'm done with this house being chaos. lol

I guess that's it. My girls are still doing well (yay!) and the weather has been pretty nice, too. Woo!


  • Dark Moon was full of suck. I was yelling at the book that you've had enough! put the cock down! Way too much sex. 
  • Christmas Down Under and Christmas with the Laird were cute Christmasy novellas about people spending Christmas in other countries. 
  • Cowboy Bold was real good. A ranch that does a summer program for at risk youth. 
  • And Mail Order Cowboy was a cute but unmemorable novella where the sudden daddy cowboy orders himself a nanny.

  
 

I started Dark Sexy Knight today and am loving it. It's a spin on Camelot where they work at a dinner theatre that's about Knights. I'm about 1/3rd of the way through.

not a blessed thing

All were freebies when I snagged them.
  

5 stars!! The Vixen and the Vet by Katy Regnery

I love this week's spread. I read a meme that was basically you have to decide sometimes to say fuck it and just warrior up and get shit done. And I took that to heart this week.

Top Ten: Frequently Used Words In Romance Titles

Hmmm that was a little hard! lol So here are the ones I find most often in my titles...

  1. Billionarie
  2. Bride (Married/Wedding are right up there, too)
  3. Cowboy/SEAL/Duke-- basically what the hero is lol
  4. Christmas 
  5. Scoundrel/Rogue/Rebel
  6. Texas  (77, yall. 77 on my shelves. Apparently Texas is THE state)
  7. Seduction/Seduced
  8. Fire
  9. Dragon/Wolf
  10. Hero's name




Question: How do you organize your books for review? Does it work for you or have you had to change it?
A: I have two shelves on Goodreads 1) Review consideration 2) Review commitment.

I rarely accept a book flat out until I'm ready to read it. So most go onto the consideration shelf until I'm downloading it to read (or have said yes send me a print copy). Any print cold sent get put on the consideration pile, too. Makes it easy to stay on top of the pile (since I never wind up with ones I changed my mind on) and it's easily sortable by date when I'm looking to see which is coming up next.
Then in my planner once things are done and the review is completed the monthly calendar gets a colored flag. (pink-review, yellow-for fun read, orange-feature, blue--group events/memes)
