My #BookBuddyAthon TBR 2017

It's officially May and that means it's time to get ready for the #BookBuddyAthon!!  I wanted to participate in this readathon last year, but I didn't find a reading buddy in time.  This year I started advertising for a reading buddy early and someone was nice enough to answer my call on Twitter.  Thanks M for tweeting me!!  Now that I have a reading buddy, here's an overview of what the #BookBuddyAthon is and a list of the books we'll be reading.

They're discovering the healing powers of passion.


Burned-by-love architect Hunter McKay came home to Phoenix to open her own firm, not rekindle her fleeting high school romance with playboy Tyson Steele.  But when she runs into the sexy surgeon at a nightclub- and he unleashes that legendary Steele charm- Hunter fears she's headed straight for heartbreak once again.

Tyson hasn't forgotten the one who got away.  A weeklong fling should by just enough to get the sultry beauty out of his system for good, even if he has to let Hunter set the ground rules.  But the rules are suddenly changing for the no-strings bachelor.  Can Tyson convince this sensual woman that he's the real deal- that they deserve a second change together?

A Spring Affair by Té Russ

Though they've yet to meet face to face, Maya has had a secret crush on Xavier, the man who owns a wine café that the winery she works for distributes to. But being that Xavier is involved, she'd never reveal her feelings.

Xavier's previous relationship has left him wrung out emotionally. Needing to get away for awhile, he decides to drive to Napa and visit the winery that produces one of the best selling wines at his café. And finally get the opportunity to meet the woman with the sweet little voice.

One email and four little words stands to flip their love lives on its head and when Maya and Xavier meet for the first time, both are blindsided by the attraction they feel for one another.

Springtime and wine make a beautiful backdrop for two people on a romantic journey to love...

New Year's Resolutions

We maybe half way through January, but HAPPY NEW!  They better late than never, right?  Anyways, it's a new year and for me that means a time to set new goals (or finish old ones).  Yes, I'm one of those people who makes a list of resolutions/goals at the beginning of the year.  


What I've Been Reading

My Kindle has been getting quite the workout lately.  With the Fall season being upon us and the temps having dropped, I've kind of gone more into hermit mode than I already am.  When I'm not writing or spending time with my family, I like to curl up with a warm blanket, a hot cup of coffee and read.  These last few weeks, I have stumbled across some really good reads and thought I'd a share a few with you.



Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween



Today, I thought I'd try something new and linkup with The Broke and the Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday.  Each week there's a new book related topic.  I think this linkup will be a fun way to share some of my favorite books while sharing more about myself with you all.  Also, I'm looking forward to getting some awesome book recommendations from everyone else who links up each week. 

This week's topic is Top Ten Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween.  So, let's jump right into this.
