This week was a busy week. Last weekend, my niece Chloe was down and we had so much fun together. Her family went to Disneyland and was gone for most of the weekend so Chloe and I hung out. We made our rounds to the different basketball games for all of the kids in our family, we tried a new Korean food spot, we had a crepe party and we said goodbye for now to her sister and my other niece, Chach. Chach left for the MTC before heading to serve an 18 month mission in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
It was a great week in books for me, too. Check it out.
A lady does not smoke cheroot. She does not ride astride. She does not fence or attend duels. She does not fire a pistol, and she never gambles at a gentlemen’s club.
Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried—and more than a little unsatisfied. And so she’s vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she’s been missing.
But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss—to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St. John, the Marquess of Ralston—charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile.
If she’s not careful, she’ll break the most important rule of all—the one that says that pleasure-seekers should never fall hopelessly, desperately in love.
I picked this up because it’s my book club discussion book for January and book club is next week Monday. It’s been ages since I read this book but the last time I read it, I loved it and so far, I’m really loving it.
Small Admissions by Amy Poeppel | 4 out of 5
Solo by Jill Mansell | 1 out of 5
Hard Hitter by Sarina Bowen | 4 out of 5
Winning the Wallflower by Eloisa James | 4 out of 5
Satisfaction by Lexi Blake | 4 out of 5
My favorite read of the week is a tie between Hard Hitter by Sarina Bowen and Satisfaction by Lexi Blake. I’m really enjoying both series and both of these books were strong additions to those series. Both books were so stinkin’ good.
My least favorite read of the week is…Solo by Jill Mansell. It started out so good and then the whole thing just went downhill. The characters were dickheads, they treated each other like shit and in the end, I didn’t want any of them to be together. Gah.

New to My Bookshelves
None. I didn’t buy anything because I’m going to try to read some of the books I already have before I start acquiring more. Wish me luck on this one. 🙂
