The Reckoning (Darkest Powers, Book 3)Lover Mine: A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood

My blogger spotlight this week is: Obsessed! by Bella She reviews UF, YA, Paranormal Romance
Beautiful blog with plenty of attitude! Here's the quote under her blog title:

I had found the secret of a garret-room piled high with cases in my father's name; piled high, packed large; where, creeping in and out among the giant fossils of my past, like some small nimble mouse between the ribs of a mastodon, I nibbled here and there at this or that box, pulling through the gap, in heats of terror, haste, victorious joy, the first book first. And how I felt it beat under my pillow, in the morning's dark, an hour before the sun would let me read! Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Made me want to curl up and read a book on the spot & that quote does seem to sum up the vibe of her blog ....

Coming up:
I'll be Reviewing:  The Darkest Passion (Aeron's story) by Gena Showalter, Her Vampire Husband  by Michele Hauf.

Contest: I'll be giving away J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood box set (books 1-6 paperback) J.R. Ward Box Set ! So be sure to check back for that on Monday.....

This week's pet is author Mara Purnhagen's "Baby Cat"! Gorgeous!
Send in your animals pictures and I'll put them on on my Sunday posts! Check out my Easter sheltie on the sidebar.....Indy when he was a puppy. Wait until you see his Halloween pictures!

  2. Thanks for the link to Obsessed!...she looks interesting, and now she's added to my GoogleReader feed. :-)

    Oh, J.R. and I need to have a talk abt her books. I want to know how you discovered them and which brothers are your favorites!

  3. Great wow picks, they sound great! I'll have to check out your Blogger Spotlight, great passage!

  4. Thanks so much for mentioning Obsessed! ... I'm glad my blog impressed you enough to be spotlighted (",) ... as for the quote, well, you know it ... makes me think of snuggling up in an old forgotten attic somewhere, that's stuffed with books, and reading in a dusty and dimly lighted corner, until time ceases to have any meaning and anything becomes possible.
