It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, so break out the cocoa, the coffee, and cookies! Grab those holiday theme books and bring your holiday spirit. Jennifer @ The Book Shelfery and I are hosting the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon.
August is Read-A-Romance Month and a few of my fellow #XOxperts* and I are celebrating the Joy of Romance. A special thanks to Victoria @ Arts Books & Coffee who has mad social skills and coördinated everything. Check out my review of Sustained by Emma Chase. This is the second book in her new Legal Briefs series but it works as a standalone. I adore Chases’ writing. Her character Drew Evans from the Tangled series is one of my favorite bad boys but, I might just cheat on him with Jake Becker. Enjoy, enter the giveaways and then be sure and visit the other stops.
As I sit here preparing Caffeinated’s 4-year Blogoversary post I find it hard to believe that four years have passed so quickly. I started blogging in August of 2011 and had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Friendships, personal growth and the community have made the journey joyous and I look forward to many more years. I hope you will join me in celebrating. Last year I did a scavenger hunt and it was a blast. This year I am going to go easy on you and just say “Thank You.”
On May 6th thanks to a special invitation from St. Martin’s Press and Big Honcho Media I had the privilege of being part of a phone interview with the lovely, funny and talented Darynda Jones. She is author of the hilarious, swoon-worthy, action packed Charley Davidson series. As many of you know this is one of my favorite series and it was very difficult not to completely fan girl. We had an interesting panel of bloggers and the questions asked gave us insight into the series. We learned some interesting tidbits and shared a few laughed. So today I am going to share some of the questions asked, give you a look at the newest book Eighth Grave After Dark and then share a giveaway provided by St. Martin Press just for you.
Through my Caffeinated Virtual Assistance Services I am helping to organizing the “What Do You #Crave” Tour for CRAVE, book 1 in the Undone series, an edgy contemporary adult romance by Jennifer Dawson author of the Something New Series. Crave releasing June 1, 2015 and we would love to have you join us!
Wahoo! It is time to begin the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge. I hope you are as excited as I am to tackle those arcs, blog ahead, meet new folks and take part in the month long challenges provided by our Challenge Hosts. Grab your ARCS, get comfy and begin!
With Spring in full swing I have a tendency to get in a romantic mood. Maybe it’s the green grass, birds singing or a simple as we celebrate our Anniversary in April. Because of that I thought I would share a few of my favorite romances. This wasn’t easy. So I did the simplest of things. Grab a cup of iced tea or coffee and a scone, enjoy and then tell me your favorite romance novels.
It’s that time of year again to gather up those ARC’s and make a Clean Sweep. For the month of May I will be challenging you to get those advanced reading copies read! These can be e-arc’s, finished copies, audios and physical arcs. (regardless of release date) As an added bonus you will be able to schedule advanced reviews and free up your time to enjoy the warmer weather. To make things fun there will be challenges and a grand prize.
