“18 Steamy New Romances to Heat Up Your Winter”

So I’ve recently come across BookBub and it has some fantastic bits of pieces which I definitely want to share now and then.

One of their most recent posts was 18 Steamy New Romances to Heat Up Your Winter.

I’m always looking for a good new romance novel and this list caught my attention – of course they are adult reads (not YA).

A Birthday and A Surprise for Me…and Later for You!

So today is my birthday and after trudging through the snow to get home with the nasty snow storm which magically appeared over night, I came home only to find my Secret Santa gift having arrived. Since it was a small birthday this year, it was wonderful to get this little surprise and of course I had to open it up.

Inside was…..just kidding!!! You’re going to need to check back on Christmas Day to find out who my absolutely wonderful Secret Santa was as well as what goodies I was gifted!

Is this a shameless plug to get you to check back on Christmas Day when you are opening your own gifts? You can bet it is! Because I want to make sure everyone goes and checks out my Secret Santa’s website because it rocks. That will be one of my gifts to you.

But you’ll need to wait. Painful, huh?

It’s like seeing that big gift under the tree 10 days before Christmas that your estranged aunt had delivered and you are just dying to know what is inside.

Go have an egg-nog while you wait!

Last Day Of September

Oh dear, where did the summer go? Last day of September, tomorrow it’s October, Halloween is fast approaching, rapidly followed by the end of the year. Scary.

However, the best part if that it is cool, you need sweaters and it is time to curl up with a book. Or plural, books…. lots of them. Reading season is here. The long evenings and quiet times are back. Nothing better than hunkering down in the cool than with a new (or old) friend. What are you planning to read? Any saved specials? Now might be the time for the bigger ones….(.War And Peace anyone?). Now is the time to plan your autumn reading, winter reading, snow reading. Take a moment today and think what might be your to read list. Make a commitment: let MLCWO be the soap box where you state your goals and share your intentions. What are you planning to read? What will dark nights and cozy fires inspire you to read?

And to put you in the mood take a moment to get in the spirit here with this wonderful seasonal piece.

Happy reading everyone!
