    Happy Mothers day Kimba! Champagne brunch sounds lovely.

    I can’t wait for your Black City and After Dark reviews this week! You also received some great books – I’m a big fan of Bella Andre.

    Have a great week & happy reading 🙂

    I was glad for the romances because I have a lot of horror, dystopian and mysteries coming up in my schedule and I will read one of these in-between to cleanse my palate. Enjoy your weather and have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

    TRUE AND DOWN LONDON ROAD!!! I absolutely adored True, I can’t wait to see what you think Kimba! I’m dying to read Down London Road, On Dublin Street was one of my favorite reads last year. And I still need to read a Linda Lael Miller book, I’ve never read one. That needs to change!

  19. Sandy

    YAY for warmer weather! I love this time of year. Also, Lurlene McDaniel was one of my favorite authors growing up. I’m going to check that one out now! Great week!

    Great new books for you! Enjoy them and have a Happy Mother’s Day! Sounds like you’ve got a nice day planned.

  21. kimbacaffeinate

    I am excited, just waiting for the hubs to get out of the shower. My oldest and her boyfriend are driving to meet us (she is away at college) for breakfast brunch. Happy Mother’s Day!

  22. Lark

    Happy Mother’s Day, Kimba! I’m glad you’re celebrating, and glad it’s warming up. After an 84-degree high yesterday, it’s only supposed to reach 70 here, so there goes my plan to wear sandals this morning.

    You have a lovely lot of romances in your haul this week. Happy reading!

    Cheers!!! *clink, clink* Happy Mother’s Day!!! Enjoy your brunch and day of reading!!!

    I chuckle now when I see your new books, like Linda Miller, b/c the first thing I think of it, “Crap, now I’ve got to fit another of her books on the shelf!!” – I’m in charge of keeping paperback “M”‘s in order (among others) and that lady has more Big Sky and McKettricks and blah, blah…. Her books get a serious workout and are always a mess!!

    … but I babble… Have a great week, too!!!! ps. no haulin’ for me 😉

  26. Maja (The Nocturnal Library)

    I really can’t wait to read your review of Black City. I had to DNF it because I wasn’t feeling it at the time, but I didn’t hate it! Maybe I need a little push to go back to it, and hopefully I’ll get it from your review.
    Happy Sunday and happy Mother’s Day!

  27. kimbacaffeinate

    Ya know Maja at first I wasn’t sure if it was all romance..but I am glad I read it..I did like the world and have an arc of book two.

  28. Trish Hannon

    Enjoy your champagne brunch, that’s a lovely treat 🙂 Looking forward to hearing more about Black Venus, love the cover.

  29. Emily Drema Tuallano

    Hey Kimba 😀 Sorry, I’ve been so crazy busy with exams and all, so I had no time to hop around! :O
    Happy Mother’s Day 😀 Happy Sunday and Happy Reading! <3

    Happy Mother’s Day Kimberly! I hope your kid’s and Hubby make it a wonderful day for you! I’m so jealous that you got Black Venus and The Year of Luminous Love. I’ve been reading Lurlene’s novels since I was a kid! Enjoy your day and your new books!
