Sunday's Brunch: Books found & leaving + Nine degrees of submission

The last few weeks I’ve been struggling to find a reading rhythm that makes me read one book after another. The last book I read in almost one sitting was Kristen Callihan’s Moonglow and after that it was a few chapters here and there *sigh* I’ll get it back, I always do but with so many interesting reads on my TBR pile I want to snuggle on couch and just read for hours at a time.

In other news, since my birthday is in two weeks I’ve done a bit of book shopping and found two interesting new releases coming up. What kind of woman would I be if I didn’t share them *wink*

Alison Kent’s Undeniable. When I heard about this new series on twitter I looked up Alison Kent’s blog. I read the first sentence of the blurb and got weak in the knees. Very weak! “There was a time when Crow Hill, Texas’s notorious Dalton Gang ran wild.”

Oh yes, ranching, cowboys, hot men, strong-willed women and a family secret. Jeebus, what could I want more?!

Then, this week I did some link hopping and for the life of me I can’t remember how I got on Christina Ashcroft’s site but I’m glad I did!! A few years ago Angels introduced themselves in to the paranormal and urban fantasy scene and never left. Since then some angels have touched my heart in unexpected ways. Somehow I have a feeling Archangel Of Mercy will do the same. The whole blurb speaks to me; the impossible love, the tortured and arrogant archangel, the heroine discovering her powers, ancient forces at play. Yep, I’m eager for this release as well!

With all these new books coming in I’m saying goodbye to other books. Yesterday I had a fit of the cleaning rage, doesn’t happen often but as a result I now have a stack of books who need new reading love. Below you’ll find a picture. If you want books, just tell/e-mail me and I’ll try to ship them to you ASAP! (first come first served!!)

Some books I found in my mailbox this week made me squee with glee. That’s why I need my reading rhythm back…I want to read these books soon!!

Squee - smoke jumpers *heart*

Kresley Cole's new series *double squee*

I also received book happy from Joely Sue Burkhart *love*
Speaking of reading. I started to read Cherished on Friday and I had my Maya Banks cherry popped with Exiled. I don’t have a complete disconnect with a story often but I had it with Xander and Talia. The story development just rubbed me the wrong way and the characters lacked depth and emotional development. I was ready for a movie-fest and give up on reading this weekend. But then I thought, Lauren Dane is next in this duology. With a kick-off on a highly anticipated series. Just give it a few chapters. Well, I can say those few chapters turned in to a hundred and ten pages before my eyes got droopy. The BDSM element is light but the chemistry, the friends, the romance and dialogues...it hit all my good spots for readers glee.

So today I’m going to finish Sway, then *does happy dance* finally I can read Eternal Beast from Laura Wright. With a WoW date this afternoon and some studying to do tonight my Sunday is filled to the max!!

Have a great Sunday everyone *blows kiss*
