You may not know that I’m a huge fan of Dancing With The Stars and Derek Hough is my favorite on the show. He is not participating this season but I LOVE this dance below from last week. It is one of my favorite dances. I hope you enjoy it. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Sorry you weren’t feeling well, but glad you are better. Lots of reading done for sure. The Anne Bishops are on my list for eventually.

    Enjoy your Easter and the rest of the week!

  2. Glad you’re feeling better. Ohhh romantic suspense, huh? Well, definitely read Corrupt! Have you read He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker? Really good! Ohhh and what a touching dance by Derek & his sister.

    • I haven’t read He Will Be My Ruin but I’ve heard about it. I’ll check it out. Oh yeah, I can’t wait to read Corrupt!!! I love the sound of it. Thanks for recommending it. ๐Ÿ˜

  3. Congrats on getting your second ARC, Geybie, it’s always exciting, isn’t it?
    For romantic suspense, I agree with Christy, you should definitely read He Will Be My Ruin by KA Tucker, and you should check out Kristen Ashley, JA Huss, and Rebecca Zanetti for starters ๐Ÿ˜€ Then let me know, and I’ll make a more comprehensive list for you ๐Ÿ˜€
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    • Oh I’ll check out He Will Be My Ruin. Sounds great. Thank you, Lexxie. What are your 5 starred romantic suspense books? I’ve read almost all KA’s books. Rebecca Zanetti and JA Huss are new to me authors. I’ll check out their books. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜

  4. Congrats on the ARC. I heard that was a VERY sought after one! I haven’t read any book in that series. I have only read 1 Tille Cole book! Apparently I need to get going with her books.
    Some of my favorite romantic suspense (this is my FAVORITE subgenera)
    The Devil’s Daughter by Katee Robert
    The Red Stone security series by Katie Reus (I LOVE Katie Reus!)
    Retreat by Jay Crownover
    Kill Without Mercy by Alexandra Ivy
    Taken by Cynthia Eden
    Protecting Caroline by Susan Stoker (Free on Amazon right now!)
    The Search and Rescue series by Katie Ruggle
    Everything she wanted by Jennifer Ryan
    I could probably keep going…. just let me know if you want more suggestions ๐Ÿ™‚
    Samantha The Book Disciple

    • Wow… Thank you so much, hun… I’m in the mood for romantic suspense. I’ll check them out!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜
      Anyway, I actually didn’t think I was going to get the ARC. I was surprised when they sent it on my kindle. I was like WHAT?! There were a lot of big blogs had requested it. I was just lucky. ๐Ÿ˜

  5. Happy Happy Easter!! I hope you have a wonderful day. Its a special day for me too, just wish I could be with my family today. Some great books you have in the plans here. I am looking forward to reading Chosen even though I am not a fan of her multiple plot lines, I can never resist this series. I am excited to see what you think of Devil in Spring. And yes for Penelope Douglas, she is fantastic. I will say that I am not a huge fan of Karine Halle, I know many like her work, it just never works for me. I also adore Dancing With The Stars and that dance last week was amazing, I had forgotten how good he is and boy they dance so well together don’t they?? They are the most adorable couple. I have enjoyed seeing how this show is going this season. So many couple I really like.

    • Karina is a hit or miss author to me. The Sins Duet unfortunately is a miss. I loved her Experiment In Terror and some of her standalones. Oh yeah, I can’t wait to start Corrupt! I love dark romance. ;(
      Ohh so happy to hear that you love DWTS too. Derek is my FAVE. It is him and his sister, Julianne. Yep, they dance wonderfully. ๐Ÿ˜

    Enjoy your new book! It looks like you have a lot of great books planned for the rest of the month. Have a great week!

  7. Some of my fav romantic suspense is J. D. Robb and just got to delve into Karen Rose too and she writes great suspense as well. I’ve enjoyed K. A. Tucker too. Good to see you still on track with the Bishop books!

    • Thanks for the recommendations, Kathryn. I’ll check them out. Oh yeah, I’ll be back to The Others world sooner. I’m missing it already.
      Anyway, I hope you have a great week. ๐Ÿ˜

  8. I haven’t had a chance to watch any DWTS, I need to catch up. Glad you are feeling better. you have some awesome books on your reading horizon. I LOVE the Others and the latest Briggs was excellent.

    • Thank you, Heidi. Yes, The Others is excellent. I’m planning to get back to the series new week and then jumping on Briggs’ series. I’ve been hearing awesome things about Briggs series too. Wow.. cant wait to start it. ๐Ÿ˜

  9. just wait for it, a couple of months and you will be getting more ARCs than you can handle XD but for reals, request the once you know you going to read, its so easy to get carried away. I’ve been there >.< hope you had a good easter!!

    • Thank you so much. I can’t imagine what I would do if I had lots of ARCs. I’m trying to limit them; I only request or except the ones I know I will enjoy. I haven’t joined netgalley yet. I don’t have self control when it comes to book. I’m afraid that netgalley and I will not work out at the end. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜†
      Do you have any tips on how to handle ARCs?

  10. I’m glad you had a nice Easter. The Tillie Cole series sounds emotionally intense. The Jamie Brook Thompson titles sound like fun. Happy Reading!

  11. I purchased The Chosen, but Im only on book four, Butch is not one of my favorite characters and it has taken a while to get through it. Happy reading and have a wonderful week.

  12. Whoops! I missed your post last week! I’m SORRY!!

    I really want to read The Other’s so I’m glad to see you powering through that series and I can’t wait to see what you think of the latest books!

    We had a lovely Easter and a super lazy week in general but now this week there’s yet ANOTHER holiday (ANZAC day) and then our local Show Friday and Saturday so I probably won’t accomplish too much this week either! Oops!
