Five Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!! It's been a while since I've done this. Sorry I've been slacking but I've been planning something wonderfully fabulous for you guys in December involving some of your favorite authors, books given away and lots of fun festive interviews and guest posts. I'm so flipping excited about this and the awesomesauce known as Laura Chaplin (former tweeter behind the RomConInc twitter handle and you can now follow her here) has been helping me every step of the way, my personal cheerleader. :)

Anyway, enough gushing or Laura's head might explode. *kidding*

Here are my Five Friday Faves:

Pocket Books. They've been gracious enough to send me 2 books to review which will be releasing on Tuesday. Freakin' Pocket Books you guys!!! That's really huge for me. You can find my review of A NOVEL SEDUCTION by Gwyn Cready here and I'll be posting a review of A WINTER SCANDAL by Candace Camp as soon as I'm done reading it.

Avon Netgalley Requests. I went on a Netgalley bender requesting everything in sight. Hey! What can I say? There's some awesome releases coming out that I've been dying to get my hands on. I have been auto approved to view/review titles by Avon. Thanks Pam Jaffee! That means I don't have to wait for someone at Avon to approve my request for any of their titles. I can automatically download them. I've been smiling like an idiot since finding out and I had to tell someone.

Holiday scented candles. Yeah. Like Karen Erickson, I'm a candle freak. I just love the smell of them, especially the sugar cookie and spice market ones from Michaels. I'm also a fan of Yankee Candle.

Sugar cookies. I've been baking like there's no tomorrow which, isn't good for RBW. Seriously. High in sugar, fat, calories and everything under the sun. See the thing is, my mother in law send a large priority box of Halloween candy and among the candy are Pumpkin Pie Hershey Kisses. Yes, they taste like the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. I decided to bake thumbprint sugar cookies and smash the Hershey Kisses in the middle of them and send all the cookies to school with my husband. Apparently he's got a math book club. Yup.

SCANDALOUS DESIRES by Elizabeth Hoyt. ZOMG! This book arrived yesterday afternoon and I've been dying to get my hands on this. Thanks to Grand Central and Brianne B for providing a review copy. One step closer to the reveal of the Ghost of St. Giles. The cover is gorgeous, the step back is steamy and I'm slowly savoring this book. P.S. There's an excerpt at the end for the final book in the series. *dies* I can't bring myself to take a peek. Gah!!!

Sooo...what about YOU? What are you loving this week? New books, movie (speaking of, The Three Musketeers is out today), music (oh dear lord, JBiebs has a holiday song out already), or new product?
