April Book Round-Up
So, spring is here, or at least I keep telling myself that as I sip my morning coffee and watch the snow fall outside my window! Blech!!!!! The ground is white with the S%^&,err I mean fluffy stuff. I find myself going back to Saturday when it was sunny and warm enough to have one or two windows open, and to don my beloved flip flops. This morning I'll be scraping the windshield.
That's April in my neck of the woods I'm afraid. We typically hunt Easter eggs in the snow, and those beautiful pastel colored dresses for little girls are typically worn beneath snow boots and a winter coat. Booooo!!!
But April also means, daffodils (bought a couple of bunches this w/e) and their yellow cheeriness instantly lit up the house. April also means that I will have a bit of time to read for pleasure. I do have deadlines, but if I stick with my daily word count, the deadlines should allow me some free time for reading.
These are the books I've picked this month!!!!!
Sins of a Wicked Duke, Sophie Jordan. Well, I love Sophie's writing, and I've had this book for about a week now. I'm going to start it today. It's a historical and I'm chomping to get back to a good historical.
Larrissa Ione's Desire Unleashed, I love her Demonica series, and can't wait to read this one!!! Sexy and hot and dangerous!
And last but most certainly not least is JR Ward's Lover Avenged. I cannot tell you how much I'm eagerly awaiting this book. I have a bit of a problem with the brothers if you know what I'm sayin'. You thought Lindsay had a problem with opium, yeah, well that's me with the brothers. I luuuuuuv them. I think Rhage, V and Phury are my favs, but I'm anxious to read Rehv's story. He's sexy and bad, and I like those combinations!!!!! I'm also hoping for a bit more romance in this book than the last two she wrote. I'm a sucker for those early books when the romance was really the focus.
So, what books or book are you anxiously waiting for, or reading? Or, a you possibly doing a re-read? Enquiring minds want to know, and possibly my TBR pile!!
