Let's get Hitched???

Image
Yeah... I'm not about to get hitched anytime soon.  I'm not against marriage at all and I'm looking forward to the day I get to find my special someone.  Until then, I will remain happily single.  No, I'm talking about the three book series called Hitched by Kendall Ryan.  I just started it today and I'm only about half way through the first book but let me tell you, it's one of the funniest books I've read in a long time!  I've delved into Kendall Ryan's works before and she never disappoints.  Here's the Goodreads link to the first book Hitched Volume One and the synopsis below:

Marry the girl I’ve had a crush on my whole life? Check.

Inherit a hundred-billion-dollar company? Check.

Produce an heir… Wait, what?

I have ninety days to knock up my brand-new fake wife. There’s only one problem—she hates my guts.

And in the fine print of the contract? The requirement that we produce an heir.

She can’t stand to be in the same room with me. Says she’ll nev…

It's Been a While.....

So I fully acknowledge that it's been almost a month since I last wrote a blog entry.  I've been very busy with lots of stuff going on but I know, that's no excuse.  In order to remedy this problem, I am putting a reminding on my computer to write a blog post every day.  I may not fulfill my daily obligation but I will be attempting to at least be more of a regular writer.  Hey, at least I'm trying here!

July was a very busy month for me.  I started a new position at work and its been quite an adjustment for me going from the outbound call center to the inbound call center.  Its a great learning experience for me though, so I'm choosing to stay positive even though its a little overwhelming at times. I got to see one of my favorite bands of all time, the Goo Goo Dolls, when they came to town a couple weeks ago!  The concert was awesome and they played lots of their hits as well as some of the songs from their new album.  We were pretty close to the stage and I was …

My Fellow P&P Lovers, This Might Be Just For You!

I was browsing through my Facebook feed today and I noticed something so adorably cute, I just had to share it with you!  It's Pride and Prejudice themed cross-stitch pictures!  I couldn't believe it when I saw it and thought, omg I just had to share this.  I am currently in the middle of a very large cross-stitch picture myself, but as soon as that is done, I will immediately be picking this one up!  I have loved Pride and Prejudice (my favorite book ever) since the first time I read it when I was ten (yes, yes I know that was a long time ago) and pretty much anything to do with it, or Jane Austen in general, gets me all excited!  In fact, one of my dearest friends gave me very large and thick hardcover book with all of Jane Austen's works in it and I thought I had died and gone to book heaven!

One of the things I really like about this design is that it is reminiscent of the cross stitch patterns of old, better known in history as samplers.  These were very popular among…

First Book Post!!! Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley

So remember when I told you all that I decided to start a blog?  Yeah, I think my computer hated that idea because the next day, it decided to not work properly.  And it has been not right ever since.  Sigh, I think it's time to start looking at new computers.  I mean, she's already seven years old and got me through college along with traveling to Ireland for four months so she's had her share of wear and tear.  So there's that to look forward to.  I wasn't planning on springing for a new computer until I go back to grad school which at this point is looking like 2018. But as the French say, c'est la vie...

Moving on, I figured since this is mostly going to be a book blog, I should touch on some of my favorite reads as well as ones I'm looking forward to.  So in order to start things out, I will tell you about one of my all time favorite books that just came out on audio recently.  It's called Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley.  In a word, this book is

In the beginning.....

So today I decided to write a blog. What does someone do when they decide this? Well, a smart person researches and researches until she's inundated with a plethora of information on the topic. Yes, that is what I did. I think that now makes me a smart person. My brain officially hurts. But on the bright side, I think I have an idea on how the cool kids are doing it this blogging thing these days.

The biggest obstacle I found was figuring out what my topic would be. Two of my favorite things in the whole world are romance novels and European travel, especially to Ireland. Hence, the title of my blog. When I wrote the title, I instantly pictured Lizzie Bennett walking through the fields reading a book. Think, the opening scene of the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice. Yeah, I'm a hardcore Austenite.

Anywho...back to the subject of the blog. I'm thinking its going to be kind of a mish mosh of things. I mean, I'll tell you about my most recent book read and cover some …
