QUESTION FRIDAY 13/07/18 'PRICE'



Question Friday is a new segment I want to start on this blog, where I just answer a bookish related question.  Please feel free to join in and leave your answers below.

This week's question is;
Q) Does the price of a book effect your decision whether to buy it or not?

A) I do like to shop around for books prices- everyone has a budget.  I normally check between Amazon and the Book Depository and some the supermarket charts.  And of course sometimes (the majority of the time) the kindle version is most often cheaper by quite a bit.  So while the price of a book doesn't necessarily stop me from buying it, I just shop around.

QUESTION FRIDAY - 13/07/2018 'UNREAD BOOKS'


Question Friday is a new segment I want to start on this blog, where I just answer a bookish related question.  Please feel free to join in and leave your answers below.

This week's question is;

Q) What proportion of the books you own are unread?

A) A lot.  Like a lot a lot.  Just after Christmas I actually went through my shelves, as I'd filled them plus had loads of books in piles on the floor.  And it was getting ridiculous.  So many of the books on the shelves (or indeed on the floor) I'd never read because they're books that have arrived for review that just aren't my genre's (crimes novels, mysterys, etc), or books that I'd read and not enjoyed.  So what was the point in keeping them?  So I donated them to charity.  But even with this huge clear out, I still own a lot of unread books- possibly 200ish?

Waiting On Wednesday 'Every Time We Fall In Love'



Waiting on Wednesday is all about sharing the books that I'm eagerly waiting to be released.

This week the book that I'm really looking forward to being released is Every Time We Fall In Love by Bella Andre, book 18 in The Sullivans series.  I absolutely love Bella Andre's books, and The Sullivans is such a fabulous family series, where it branches off into the Seattle, San Francisco and New York families, so I can't wait to delve into this next instalment.  Released 18th July.

40032317Harry Sullivan has always put his family first, even when it meant losing Molly—his one true love. He’s never been able to forget her, even after fifteen years. Now that his siblings are all blissfully happy, Harry hopes it’s not too late for his own happily-ever-after. But then his doorbell rings…and one look at the teenage girl standing on his doorstep changes absolutely everything.

Molly never thought she’d see Harry Sullivan again, so she's beyond stunned when her fifteen-year-old daughter brings him back into her life. At eighteen, Harry was already strong, sexy, and honorable. And now that he's even more handsome, more brilliant, more loyal and caring? Molly can't stop herself from falling in love with him all over again. Especially when his kisses and the sizzling attraction between them are hotter than ever.

But with more at stake now than they ever thought possible, will they be able to move beyond the mistakes they both made in the past, and fall in love forever this time?

EVERY TIME WE FALL IN LOVE is part of Bella Andre's New York Times and USA Today #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans. While it can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books, too.

QUESTION FRIDAY 06/07/2018 'HABITS'


Question Friday is a new segment I want to start on this blog, where I just answer a bookish related question.  Please feel free to join in and leave your answers below.

This week's question is;

Q)What do your friends think of your reading habits? Are they non-readers?

A) My close friends are used to me by now to be honest.  They know I've always got a book on the go, that they'll find one in my bag.  That if I'm really enjoying a book they'll hear all about it, even if they don't want to.  They doubt think it's quirky but they're used to it.

Waiting On Wednesday 'Kissing Jenna'




Waiting on Wednesday is all about sharing the books that I'm eagerly waiting to be released.

This week the book I'm waiting to be released is Kissing Jenna by Kristen Proby, the second book in her Big Sky series. 
Release date 10th July 2018.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and am a big fan of Kristen Proby's books in general, her Boudreaux series being my favourite.

From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes the newest installment in her beloved Big Sky Series…

Jenna Hull owns and manages vacation rentals in her hometown of Cunningham Falls, Montana. She’s just completed the construction of her most exhausting project, the one she’s put her heart and soul into. The inviting, opulent Snow Wolf Cottages are the first ski in/ski out tree houses in the world.
Her biggest dream is about to come true, and she can’t let anything distract her.

Christian Wolfe is Hollywood’s it actor. If the magazines are to be believed, he’s the sexiest man on earth. He’s preparing for the biggest movie role of his life, and his agent has booked him in a hot new ski lodge in Montana, tucked away from crazy fans. He can’t wait for the break.

But what Christian isn’t prepared for is Jenna. With a face that could easily co-star with him in a movie and her ambition to put her stamp on Cunningham Falls, he can’t stay away. But even more intriguing than her beauty is the fact that she’s not at all impressed with his celebrity status, only turned on by the man behind the fame.

The love they’ve found is perfect—but time is running out before real life intrudes. Can they survive with both their dreams—and hearts—intact?
