      I love your Tips and Tricks, they are a great help when trying to figure out this blogging stuff. I can’t wait to read Ever After. I think it is next on my tbr, at least I hope it is, I’ll be having dinner with Kim on Thursday, so I want to be able to talk about the book!

      What a fun cover for Love is Blind. I like it. I downloaded Inhale a while back but haven’t read it yet. I hope this week is drama free, it’s been insane.

    3. karina

      O_o! Wraith looks good, Kimba! And I really like vintage cover for Love is Blind! Will be looking forward to your review, sweetie 🙂 Hope you have a fantastic week!

    4. Danielle Chapman

      Look at that haul of yours! Wow! Quite a few books there I am very interested in and I am looking forward to your reviews! 🙂 Hope this week is a better one for you. ((hugs))

    5. Cyn

      The Weather Witch cover looks so awesome! Such a great haul this week. I hope all the bad drama is over and you have a great week this week with your books!

    6. Jennifer

      5 reviews this week, you are officially my HERO. I don’t know how you do it. Also, you picked up Wraith. I’ve had this one for awhile, and it looks so INTERESTING, but I just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. Gotta love those freebies.

    7. Sam

      I read a great review for Wraith last week I think, and I’ve been curious about it ever since. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts! Weather Witch sounds interesting too.

    8. Alicia

      BOUNDLESS AND EVERBOUND!! They are some of my top anticipated sequels of 2013 and just looking at the cover alone makes me very very excited 😀 Enjoy reading!

      Well chica I am about to add a cape and fly..cause the week ahead is 6 reviews and all of February has a weekly avg of 5 to 6 reviews..oh yeah Mama Caffeinated didn’t say “no” to arc’s..LOL All I can say is thank God I read ahead because I am reading a book for the second week of February now of which I have all but this one read and reviewed already….thankful March returns to normal with 2 arc’s a week to read ! It is my own darn fault as I desperately wanted to read all of the ARC’s in my pile..bwahahaha! My poor hubby might not get fed all month! To make matters worse did you see all the pre-orders in my books purchased this week that came in….grrr..I plan to read Ever After tomorrow or die trying! *facepalm*

    10. Maja (The Nocturnal Library)

      I’m so glad you’ll be reading Sealed with a Curse, I liked it A LOT! Also, Fiery Hot Reads is starting. I’m having Stacia Kane over on Wednesday to talk about Chess and Terrible and I’m insanely excited about it.
      What a great week. Enjoy your books. 🙂

    11. Nick

      I love the cover of Weather Witch! It’s absolutely gorgeous!
      Enjoy your book haul, Kim! 🙂

    12. Audrey D Wilkerson

      I love Angel Lawson. I have read all of her books, and even did an INKlings Interview with her. Can’t wait to hear what you think of Wraith. Great week to you!

    13. Anatea Oroz

      Oh yey! You got Boundless, can’t wait to see what you think of it! And I’ll be sure to join in the read-a-thon next week!

    14. kimbacaffeinate

      Awesome would love to have you join the read-a-thon and I am seriously hoping to make a dent in my own tbr pile..yikes! I hope to read Boundless in February during the Wicked Valentine’s read-a-thon which is always a lot of fun (see my side bar)

    15. Kristilyn

      I have heard so many good things about that Cynthia Hand series! I’m going to have to check it out one of these days — I’m not really into angels, but I might have to overlook that. And On Dublin Street looks super good! I hope you enjoy it, and all your other reads!

    16. Michelle

      Weather Witch looks really good. This is the first I am seeing of it. I will have to check it out. I thought I did so good this week with not taking review books, but once I sat down to make my post I saw I had more books than I thought.

    17. MaryAnn

      Great books this week! I’m really curious about The Weather Witch. It sounds pretty cool and I’m really digging the cover! Enjoy what you got this week! Thanks for sharing and happy reading 🙂

      What we got this week!

    18. kimbacaffeinate

      I have no idea when I will be able to read that was gifted an I am booked through oh..forever it seems. If you are interested, I’d be happy to email author and let her know that a awesome blogger would like to review it..just let me know!

    19. Yvonne

      Nice week! Reading the weekend away is always good. Enjoy the party. Your upcoming reads look hot! Have a great week!

    20. Steph, The Readingista

      I hope the drama wasn’t too upsetting.
      I am so looking forward to Fiery Hot Reads. I am up on Tuesday. Yay!
      I am off to check out your review for Temping is Hell and Blogger Tips…
      Enjoy all your books and have a great week.

    21. kindlemom1

      You got some great books this week!
      I can’t wait to see what you thought about Scent of Darkness, it was a really interesting (but good) read for me. But it seems to be one of those books you either love or hate.

    22. Heidi

      Blogger drama? Who did what this time….I have had my head buried getting ready for Fire and Ice! You have a packed week as well nest week! Some great books up there! Yeah for Boundless and Ever After. I have On Dublin Street lined up w. a guest post for Fire and Ice. I got Grounds to Kill as well. Have a better week!

    23. kimbacaffeinate

      It is not just one, it’s was a lot and there was some last week and it is happening to such lovely peeps and while I wasn’t involved just upsets me …all I want is peace, love and books!

    24. kimbacaffeinate

      We are still waiting on the medical that is always hard, but my nephew will be going home this week, so that is good. I am excited about the Weather Witch too! Have a lovely week Cyn!

    25. kimbacaffeinate

      Ever After, Boundless, Everbound, Inhale, Up to Me, Up in Flames, On Dublin Street, Grounds to Kill, Sealed with a Curse, Secrets 3, 4 and 5. Can’t you ok images from your ad block? Mine let’s me.

    26. Andrea

      Awesome haul, Kimba!

      I really liked On Dublin Street and Up to Me. Inhale is a favorite! I love The Hollows series! I hope you enjoy all the books!

    27. kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Michelle, my nephew is alert and will be home..although he we be immobilized for eight to ten weeks in an awful body brace. I am excited about Weather Witch ..its been a while since I have read a good witch book!

    28. kimbacaffeinate

      plagiarism, bad mouthing..the weekly all makes me so sad. No blog drama here thank goodness, but on the home front my nephew almost died and I have a daughter with some scary medical yeah all i want this week is peace, love and books!

    29. Book Savvy Babe

      I,m so sorry that the drama all hits at once, it seems to go that way. I hardly even pay atterntion to blogger drama anymore. I just like to know the instigators, so I know where to be wary

    30. Book Savvy Babe

      Blogger drama? I totally missed it, what happened?? Anyhow, I’m loving your book haul this week, so many of those covers are hot! 🙂 I hope this next week brings you more peace and less drama, happy reading! Book Savvy Babe

    31. ConfessionsFR

      Yeah the blogger drama sucked, I nearly wrote a post after the first incident. Let just hope this week is drama free for you.

    32. kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Sharon I cannot wait to read all of them, I have to finish 1 and 1/2 review books and then I plan to read one of my new release books! Have a great week!

    33. Sharon - Obsession with Books

      An amazing haul! I can’t wait to read Everbound, Up to Me & Boundless – On Dublin Street was smexy, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did 😉 looking forward to your Breaking Point & The Prey reviews.

      Have a great week & happy reading Kimba!

    34. kimbacaffeinate

      Yeah..I cannot take anymore personal drama..almost losing a nephew and serious medical issues with my own child in one week is just too much!

    35. Holly

      Up to Me was FREE this week?! How did I miss that?!?! Ugh…

    36. kimbacaffeinate

      Ok i am removing the word Free from my sentence Purchased or Downloaded for free…because all anyone sees is the word free and think they missed the deal of a lifetime!
