Good morning! Did everyone remember to change their clocks today? I always hate losing that hour of sleep but I do love more sunlight so I suppose it's a fair trade off. I have some fun books this week. Part of my pre-birthday celebration this weekend included a trip to Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach, where I picked up a few books I have been meaning to read. Also caved and bought a few new e-books. Curious? Let's take a look!

Wait for You by J Lynn - New adult romance by Jennifer Armentrout (writing as J Lynn). I have read a short story romance by J Lynn and thought it was pretty good. Also a big fan of her YA Lux series so I had to give this a chance, esp since it was only $0.99.

Wild Invitation by Nalini Singh - This is a short story anthology set in Singh's Psy-Changeling world. If you don't know already, I adore Nalini Singh, so you can bet this was a pre-order. Read it already and loved it.

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover - Everyone keeps saying that this book is awesome and it also went on sale this week on Kindle, so I snatched it up.

Dreams and Shadows by C. Robert Cargill - Mysterious Galaxy had signed copies of this book and I could not resist. I really like the cover and the whole dream premise sucked me in. I have a fascination with dreams since I always have really weird ones. 

The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett (signed) - We happened upon Mindee Arnett signing her new book this weekend at MG. Since I have been wanting to read this one and Mindee was right there, into my cart it went. She was super cool and I can't wait to read this one. 

Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal - I've been wanting to read this for a little while now but every time I look for it in the bookstore, it's never there. Finally tracked down a copy at MG this weekend. Excited to start it.

I don't usually include my movie purchases in this post but just thought I would mention that I also bought Wreck It Ralph this week. I saw it in the theater and just loved it and have been waiting for it to come out on video. It's still as good as I remember it. So I've been watching that pretty much non-stop this week.

Anyone have good plans for this upcoming week? Like I said, my birthday is coming up but I am not sure if I am going to do anything on the actual day. I'm at an age now where it's not a huge deal if I don't do something on my birthday. Though I would like some cake...

Also, very excited to be getting my new Kindle this week! Yes, I finally ordered a new one. Old one is about 4 years old and still works though it does get glitchy. Audible and Amazon were running a program to get $100 off if you signed up for an Audible subscription, so I did it. I am getting a new Kindle Keyboard. A little nervous about transferring my books over since I have a lot, but we'll see how it goes. This was super chatty so going to go now, but hope you all have a wonderful week!


  1. Wait For You was really good!! More serious than her Lux series but even sexier than anything I've read from her. Obviously, I've never read her adult, but you know what I mean. Also, I really want to see Wreck It Ralph!! lol

    1. i totally know what you mean. and you should def watch wreck it ralph. it's so cute.

  2. I totally love that nowadays on my birthday I can just stay home and be lazy... Parties always make me really uncomfortable! Love that you found Mindee Arnett by accident when you probably wrote up her event on RNSL's calendar, haha!

    1. i totally did! just didn't think to look at their weekend schedule. haha it was fun.

  3. Yay for Hopeless! Can't wait to hear what you think. I still haven't seen Wreck-it-Ralph! Andrew and my daughter loved it though and I need to pick it up.

    So cool you ran into Mindee Arnett and got a signed book. The covers of Nightmare Affair and Dreams and Shadows look like good Manicure Monday candidates :)

    I want to hear more about your new kindle! Yesterday my old kindle 2 started spontaneously restarting so I pondered getting a Paperwhite. Still on the fence about it though. I think transferring books over is a pretty easy process, and you can copy over your collections too I believe. Very cool about the Audible/Kindle promo!

    I just had a bday recently- us fishies don't like to make big deals about our birthdays! Have a happy one :)

    1. happy belated birthdat, lucy! yeah i don't like to make a huge deal out of it but it is nice to just hang out with friends and family. and i never say no to cake.

      you gotta watch wreck it ralph. i think it didn't get enough attention when it was out. it's really good.

      yeah my kindle is a kindle 2 as well and sometimes it will just freeze on me and i will have to restart it. i think it'll still work for a while but i just could not pass up this deal. plus i am super paranoid about suddenly being without a kindle. i really have come to rely on it for a lot of things. the paperwhite looks nice but i was on the fence since it only has 2gb of memory. i think i am just used to having 4. i'll let you know how i like it.

  4. I bought Hopeless when it was on sale too. I hope it's just as awesome as everyone says it is!
