Five Friday Favorites
Yay for Fridays! It's the end of the week. Time to kick back, relax and grab a good book or see a great movie. Or in my case, spend a good 5 hours sitting on the boardwalk, people watching behind my 'Top Gun' inspired aviators and finding inspiration for a WIP that'll never see the light of day. Without further ado, I give you this weeks Five Friday Faves:
How to Seduce A Scoundrel by Vicky Dreiling. I requested this through NetGalley (my first time EVER) and it was approved. Yay! Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed her debut HOW TO MARRY A DUKE and couldn't wait to read SCOUNDREL. Let me tell you, I've been giggling since page one. And now that I've gotten to know Vicky through Twitter a little better, I feel like I've been let into a fun secret. There's references in the book that would make you giggle but as for me, it's a loud guffaw.
NetGalley. Best.Thing.EVER! How did I not sign up for this months ago? Oh yeah, I thought it was just for super established, ultra fabulous bloggers. I was sooo jealous of those who got a sneak peek into some of the books I've been dying to read and had to wait for. Now, I too can get a sneak peek. Yay!
Seven Day Loan by Tiffany Reisz. I'm not just picking this book as part of my faves because Tiffany is going to be our first guest on Romance Lately. When one (aka the general public) thinks of erotica, they think of some woman in a leather bustier and hooker heels wielding a lethal looking riding crop (which could be the case in some stories/books) but they don't think that an amazing story can be told alongside super hot, make-you-tingle-down there sex. So today, I salute you Ms. Reisz. Check out my review HERE. (18+)
Coconut Creme Frappuccino from Starbucks. Where have you been all my life? You wonderful delicious thing, you. It tastes just like those Girl Scout cookies. The caramel delights ones. *sigh* Milk, ice, coconut flavored syrup, whip cream and coconut flakes.
My bookshelf. So this week, I decided to re-arrange my bookshelf and let me just say that my romance section is 3 deep. It looks so awesome and super clean. I debated on alphabetizing the books but in the end, I just put them by size and genre. Sort of. Why yes, I do have the whole Twilight, Harry Potter and Mortal Instruments series. It makes me sad that I can't share my whole romance collection via this picture with you. Oh! And don't you love my bookends?
