Week in Books (35)

Week in Books v2

..and I’m back! I read 4 books this week and I’m still in my reading groove right now. So stinkin’ excited to be reading again.

The highlight of this week was Brenna’s senior pictures. Here’s a picture that I snapped during her photo shoot. I thought she did great but I’m biased. 🙂


Now her senior year is officially under way. Basketball fundraising has started, off-season conditioning has started and I just want everything to slow down.

Currently Reading

The Viscount and the Vixen (Hellions of Havisham #3) by Lorraine Heath.

Love begets madness. Viscount Locksley watched it happen to his father after his cherished wife’s death. But when his sire arranges to marry flame-haired fortune hunter Portia Gadstone, Locke is compelled to take drastic measures to stop the stunning beauty from taking advantage of the marquess. A marriage of mutual pleasure could be convenient, indeed… as long as inconvenient feelings don’t interfere.

Desperation forced Portia to agree to marry a madman. The arrangement will offer the protection she needs. Or so she believes until the marquess’s distractingly handsome son peruses the fine print… and takes his father’s place!

Now the sedate—and, more importantly, secure—union Portia planned has been tossed in favor of one simmering with wicked temptation and potential heartbreak. Because as she begins to fall for her devilishly seductive husband, her dark secrets surface and threaten to ruin them both—unless Locke is willing to risk all and open his heart to love.

It’s Locke time. 🙂


The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins | 3.5 out of 5
The Boy is Back (Boy #4) by Meg Cabot | 4 out of 5
To Love and to Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne | 4.5 out of 5
The Billionaire Next Door (Billionaire Bad Boys #2) by Jessica Lemmon | 4 out of 5

My favorite read of the week was To Love and to Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne. I was looking forward to reading Alexis and Logan’s story and Lauren Layne nailed their romance. It was just as great as the other books and I adored both Alexis and Logan. It was so much fun.

My least favorite read of the week goes to The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. Rachel, Megan and even Anna got on my hot damn nerves throughout the entire book but I still ended up liking the book. I couldn’t put the book down even though I was mad as hell at everyone and everything going on. The mystery was nailed though because as soon as I figured it out, I was shocked as shit and before I could lurch up in bed, my iPad fell on my face. Ha! So while I liked the book, it just wasn’t my favorite of the week.

Book Boyfriend

Logan Harris from To Love and to Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne.

He smiled down at her, his hands cupping her face. “Ask me again. Ask me the reason.”

Logan was everything that I was hoping he’d be from the previous books in this series and I finished his book with a great big smile on my face. Loved him.


Just One Week by Alice Gaines
Who’s That Girl? by Mhairi McFarlane
A Scot in the Dark by Sarah MacLean
Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh


I’m wrapped up in review books this week so I didn’t look to see what I was going to add to my TBR list. Maybe this week will be different.

For Review

Size Matters by Alison Bliss
Four Weddings and a Sixpence by Julia Quinn, Elizabeth Boyle, Stephanie Sloane & Laura Lee Guhrke
To Love and to Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne

    • The characters drove me up the wall but I couldn’t put the book down and even though the characters got on my hot damn nerves, I cannot wait for the movie. I’m going to see it with my book club so it should be fun!

      Thanks, you have a great week too!

  1. Brenna is soooo beautiful!!! I bet you’re over the moon that she’s back, too, huh??? 😀

    I think your reading slump has blown over this way to the Detroit area b/c I just can’t get in the mood to read ANYTHING! I’ve got 4 books going right now and nothing is keeping me glued. Boooooooooo, hisssssssss….

    And I probably would have been annoyed by Girl on the Train, too. But it’s great you read it before the movie came out. I REALLY want to read Miss Peregrine’s before the movie comes out in 2 weeks. Yeah, this reading slump is really killing me 🙁

    Hope you’re having a great week!!!!

    • Aww, thanks so much. I think she’s a beauty, too and YES! There’s just a different vibe at home when she’s not there. I miss her so much because she’s funny and she’s kind of an airhead and I love her to pieces.

      Oh no, everyone can’t be in a reading slump. You’re like the third person I’ve talked to this week that is in a reading slump. Those things suck! I hope your reading picks up though. Fingers crossed!

      Is Miss Peregrine’s one of the books you’re trying to read right now? Good luck with that and have a wonderful week!

    • Thanks, she kept telling me to quite side busting on her photo shoot but I’m the Mom, I do what I want! Ha!

      The Girl on the Train made me want to pull everyone’s hair. It was good but frustrating to get through.

      Have a great week, Kristen!
