Asking for book recommendations #6

Book recommendations

Time for more zany or not so zany book recommendations. It's hard to say. The book recommendation requests from some of these book groups are really out there. I think I note them down for more entertainment value rather than actually intending to read the books. Although some of them do sound interesting occasionally and I have found some good books I've read. These might not be for everyone, but hey, you never know. You might find something you enjoy. Or you can be like me and shake your head and get a little giggle out of it. You can check out more about book recommendation posts here.

Observations on bookish things #2

Observations on bookish things

What do you think of my bookish observations after the first one? Do you think I'm being too opinionated? Do I need to dial it back a notch? Because you know, I'm rather feisty today. Hang tight.

Let's chat and what I'm reading now #7

Woman with coffee on phone

Hello! Remember how I said the last time when I did this post that I was being organized? Well, not this time. Work got stupid busy and I'm going away for a couple of days for my (belated) birthday so I need to get ahead. So technically, I'm ahead, but then I kinda am not. Before I get into the post, I'd like to drop a little reminder that if you'd like to get a newsletter with each post as they go up, you can sign up here.

The grumpy boss, the brooding hero, and the bad boy by JJ Sorel

Hot guy with scarf

The grumpy boss is a popular leading man in romance. He stomps around like a bear with a sore head and his PA spends her days dodging his temper tantrums. All the while, tolerating his barking orders so that she doesn’t get fired.

What Helen Read #69: February 2022

Well, it's been a heck of a couple of weeks. I've been crazy busy with work and learning a few new skills to help support the authors I work with. It's been a huge learning curve, long nights in the office, and long days too. I've even gotten up in the middle of the night at 2am or so and got back into the office to work for a few hours then tiring and going back to bed to sleep for a couple more hours before getting up for the day. The dangers of working from home. That said, it's work I enjoy and I'm enjoyed the challenge of learning something new. Still a long ways to go yet, but I'm getting there. As a result of that, my reading time has been quite limited, but I'm getting a bit of reading in.Oh, I should mention, if you want to stalk me everywhere, go here.

Here's what Helen read for the last month.

What Deanna Read #73: February 2022

Reading has been a bit slow in February. Work picked up and got really busy and I had less time to read. I also read quite a few much longer books which is unusual for me since I prefer shorter to medium length book. I haven't counted how many books I read for the month yet so this will be a surprise for me.

Here's what I read for the month.

Man of the Month Club January by Ann Omasta

Vanished In Denver by Layne Daniels
