Mmm...Monday



Happy Monday everyone! Did anyone else think it was wayyy.... too bright out this Monday morning? Darn time change, this one sun beam was peeking through the curtains and shining right in my face and I was too lazy to roll over. 
Well if you're not fully awake yet here is something that will get that blood pumping, man candy! 

**REMOVED**

This boys so hot he needs a cool down. Anybody else getting thirsty here? Just one lick...mmmm...


New release out today! 

Bitten in Two by Jennifer Rardin, book #7 in the Jaz Parks series!

Jaz Parks here. I. Am. Pissed. Just as Vayl and I arrive in Morocco to secure an ancient artifact, he wakes up calling me by another woman's name. And it's not even a good one. But since any form of argument transforms him into an unholy terror, I'm forced to play along until the gang and I can figure out what kind of power has so vastly altered his perceptions.

So it's time for me to do what any well-trained assassin in my position might do. I attack. What follows is a hair-raising, breath-taking bullet train ride to the finish as the crew battles on multiple fronts. I now know what I have to do - I must return to hell one last time.

Week 2 in the Jennifer Rardin Tribute Month is Jaz week with a guest post from Dakota Cassidy and a fan art contest. Check out

Quote of the week:
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
~ Richard Steele ~

Too bad you can't loose weight by exercising your brain or by now I'd be another Kate Moss!


Word & Definition of the week:
PLOT
Also called storyline. the plan, scheme, or main story of aliterary or dramatic work, as a play, novel, or short story.
Sub-plot - a secondary or subordinate plot, as in a play, novel, or other literary work.
Counter-plot - a plot directed against another plot.


Other ramblings:
We had our book club meeting last night and discussed our book of the month, Enchantment by Orson Scott Card. I will post my review on it in a few. 

Don't forget to check out RBtWBC's giveaway for November, a signed copy of Jane and the Damned by Janet Mullany. You can go HERE for that. 

I also created a new book rating scale that I'll be using for reviews on the side bar. Here is the Rating Scale and the Smexy Scale.

AND...I think that's it! I do have a question though for those of you out there;
How do you feel about lending out your books? 
Me, I won't lend out my favorites because I am a freak and don't want any spinal creases, crimped pages, corner wear, ect. And I won't lend out my signed copies because those stay on my collectors shelf high where the kids can't reach.
But if I have a book that I was accidentally less then gentle with or I bought used already then I have no problem lending those out. So am I the only spinal crease freak out there? Let me know.

Have a lovely week everyone and happy reading!

OOO. Love your weekly man candy. Very nice indeed. Oh great book review too, but the man is distracting, what can I say? :)

The man candy is exactly what I needed this Monday morning! I absolutely do not lend out my books. I know myself, if something happened to the book or if it was not returned in the same condition, I'd be pissed. I'll make recommendations all day, but I tell my friends to keep their grubby paws off my stash! Lol.
