It's my 35th birthday and owning it!


I'm going to celebrate my 35th birthday with bubblies, chocolate and cupcakes for everyone.


As I was searching for some good books to add to my b-day wishlist I realized the 23rd was a pretty exciting release day. Let me give you a taste of what's out there today:


I've heard great things about Gena Showalter's Dark Taste of Rapture but Where Demons Fear To Thread is getting mixed reviews. I'll be finding that out for myself as I've got the latter on my wishlist. Okay, I'm not absolutely sure I'm gonna get it from Natascha, Marissa and Pearl but I'm pretty confident *grin*


I've seen quite some mammoth anthology books released and really like the concept. This one is all about hot romance and I never say no to that :)  It's just hard to satisfy me with a novella or less in page count *sigh* I'm a high maintenance reader.

The last book on my release list is one which is part of a series and Pearl is telling us all about her:


I've been enjoying her experience very much and today is the release of Vivian Arend's:


She has lots of good stuff going on and yeah, look at the cover, it looks like one huge invite to the wicked, wild island of naughtiness! I could totally see myself there, sipping on a cocktail and play with one or two gorgeous men!!

Join Pearl in her experience here

Find info or buy the books here

Guys...I'm 35...how the heck did that happen *sigh* I'm going to get me a flute of bubblies and a cupcake to munch on!! Join me will ya ;) Let's not talk about kids suddenly calling you ma'am or boobs going south or wrinkles appearing, but rather about your last girls night out. What did ya do? Me, Natascha, Marissa and Pearl are still pondering on ours...

  2. Oh honey. You're just a baby. :-) The joy of virtual cupcakes is no calories. Yum, I'll have two.

    Last girls night out ...... umm, June 2010. It was more like a girl's week out. 15 of us in a house in Virginia for a week and I've never seen so many liquor bottles in my life. A pool, hot weather, good friends. I guess my next one will be New Orleans. :-)

    Have a super day and hope you get to spend lots of time with family and friends today.

  9. Happy Birthday Leontine! Enjoy the day, and your bubblies and chocolates, and yes please, I would like some of those!
    I turned 40 earlier this month, and it sure sounds older.
    I don't really have girls nights out, usually me and Freya just enjoy going out to dinner, and sometimes a very fancy (Michelin Stars) restaurant.
    And afterwards, we crash here and talk books, and share blogposts we discovered.

    I hope you get all the books you want, and I wish you a very happy year.
