    1. Thanks...it was nice to finally get a lot of reading time in. The review for The Winter Palace will hopefully be up later this week and the one for The Forgotten Queen will be posted on January 29th for a blog tour.

  2. One of my favorite all time reads is called Summer House, but not the one you read... Its Summer House by Jude Deveroux. And wow.

    Have a super week :)

    1. I read that one...and you are right, it was very good! Did you read the second one, Return to Summerhouse? That was good, too.

  3. Bella Andre is an author I haven't read yet, but I keep seeing her books here and there. Naturally, I'm curious!

    I'll be catching up on some Evanovich books this year for a Sequel Challenge...

    I loved the Nancy Thayer book Summer House....and enjoy most of her books.

    Have a great week!

    Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

    1. I hadn't heard of Bella Andre until I saw someone mention her book tour and was lucky to get the books. They are really good!

      I just love the Stephanie Plum books - so funny and great for audio!

  4. Fantastic reading week! I used to read Stephanie Plum religiously... until about book 10 or 11. I just gave up after that. I then decided to go back to the series and now I'm listening to the audiobooks. I must say the latest aren't as good as the earlier books in the series, however I enjoy listening to the audiobooks (if that makes sense).

    1. I read the first book and then have listened to audio ever since. I think this is the perfect series to listen to - and CJ Critt does a phenomenal job as the narrator!

  5. Looks like Bout of Books was successful for you with all that you accomplished last week. The Typewriter Girl is showing up in quite a few mailboxes!

    1. Yes, it was a productive reading week. That's what I love about read-a-thons...it gives me that little extra push to read instead of surfing the net or watching tv!

  9. I am always impressed by how many books people finish in a week while also feeling quite inadequate about how few I finish. LOL! I hope you enjoyed them all. Looks like you have some great selections coming up as well.

    Have a great week, Kristin!

    1. I only got that many books done last week because of the read-a-thon. Usually I get 2 or 3 books done in a week.
