Last Sunday’s was Jessica’s Bridal Shower. Since my oldest is the Maid of Honor (and a poor college student) it was hosted at my house. Chelsea did a great job with games and prizes. They made toilet paper bride’s dresses and it was hilarious. It was a lot of fun, but after I was good and tired. Monday HarperCollins sent me a finished copy of The Witch With No Name and I am still dancing.

      Thanks Angie, it was fun and to be honest I love to host.

  1. Berls

    Toilet paper wedding dresses are a classic and so much fun 🙂 So jealous about your Witch With No Name arc, that’s just awesome! Lots of reviews for books I’m anxious to read this week, too : Heir Of Fire, Shifting Shadows Of Mercy Thompson, & Ghost Layer are all on my short list, so I can’t wait to hear what you think! Have a great week Kimba!

      I was over the moon happy Berls and it is a finished copy. This week has an awesome line up of goodness. For some reason a million good books are publishing around the 2nd!

  2. Michelle

    The toilet paper game is always the best at a bridal shower 🙂 Some girls can be very creative Lol.

    I am not a fan of crime-ish books but Silent Night has really caught my interest, I think I need to have that book 🙂

    Enjoy all your new reads! Have a great week!!!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I had to have Silent Night murder and romance..yes please..LOL

    • kimbacaffeinate

      28 days Christy…gads. I have been reading it all weekend.

  3. Greg

    Looks like the shower went very well, good for you guys. Enjoy the books, I recognized the name Kim Harrison she is doing an author event at one of the bookstores over this way early in Sept. … knew she sounded familiar from somewhere. 🙂

      It has been a fun series Michelle and I am still amazed that I now love Trent..LOL

  5. Red Iza

    It looks like the bridal shower was a fun event ! I used to read the Kim Harrison series but am so behind it, I’ll have to catch up soon. I hope you’ll have time to relax and enjoy your new book, have a great week 🙂

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Thanks Red, I keep sneaking in a chapter here or there. It is really good.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I love the Rachel Morgan series but I am also excited to see what she does next.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Sweet, I am excited about One Night More, I love romantic suspense

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I am excited about Silent Night and Shifting Shadows is a collection you will want to own.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      It was a fantastic collection and for fans of the series we always want to see more of the characters we love. I am still dancing. I love audio but i started Morgan series in one format so this anal lady needs to finish it that way..LOL

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Yes Jeann, each team of three got 2 rolls of toilet paper and 15 mins to create a wedding dress. LOL

  6. Lark

    Sound (and looks) like the bridal shower was a lot of fun! And yay for getting a finished copy from a series you love – that’s awesome! Sorry I’ve been a bit scarce around here; things have been crazy-busy. Hopefully I’ll find a little more time in the next few weeks.

      Pfft, no apologies needed. I am a day behind on commenting and only visiting blogs who visit and comment here..28 days till the wedding and I am so busy!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Thanks Stormi, the games were fun and I am excited about Silent Night.

  7. Holly

    Toilet paper bridal dresses?! How fun!! I’ve been to many bridal showers and that is one game I haven’t played. Enjoy your new books!!

      Thanks Holly, yeah I was impressed with the games my daughter came up with. She found it in a guide to bridal showers..a book of course! She is a reader like I am.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      That is awesome Terri. I am planning on sending out reminders this week. I really appreciate everyone stepping in to help me. It will make my time away guilt free and you have no idea how much I need that.

  8. Sandy

    Glad to hear the shower went well. Picture was cute. And I bet you were exhausted after that. Hope you enjoy the long weekend and have a great week!

      Thanks Sandy. It was wonderful and my daughter had a lovely it was a win no matter how tired it made me.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Thanks Jenea. We are going to run some errands and hang out with our daughter. I am hoping to finish up The Witch with No Name

  9. Kathy

    The toilet paper game is always fun and they made some good looking gowns. How exciting the wedding is almost here. You have some nice new books this week. When We Met sounds interesting. I’m wondering how well the stories flow since it’s 4 different authors. Now that the shower is over I hope you get to relax a little more. Have a great week!!

      Katherine When We Met has four stories that all occur in the same house. I love the concept and had to read it.

  10. Ginny

    The bridal shower sounds like so much fun! I bet you were exhausted. I have Maplecroft on my read list for Sept. I hope you liked it. 🙂 So happy (and a little jealous) that you received The WitchWith No Name! How awesome!!!

    Thanks for sharing about the Good-Bye Summer Hello Fall event! Hope to see everyone there!

    Hugs and happy week wishes!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Thanks Ginny. Maplecroft was interesting and don’t wait on the Witch With No Name.

  11. Jan

    The bridal shower sounds like it was so much fun and I love the tp bridal gowns! Have fun with all the bridal preparations.

    OMG so much toilet paper! I wasn’t aware of “bridal things” so I never had a bridal party, it looks like you all had a lot of fun though!

    You know, I still haven’t read a novel by Kim Harrison. Like I own them, they are on my shelf, but I haven’t taken the next step! Haha

    And somehow I missed your review for How to Fall! Off I go!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I have a few authors like that on my bookshelf. It’s like I know they will be good, and can wait or something..LOL

  16. Tressa

    It’s been ages since I’ve been to a bridal shower that did the toilet paper dresses! So fun! I’m looking forward to seeing what you though of Heir of Fire. I’m eagerly awaiting my copy on release day. 🙂 Have a great week, Kimba!

      It’s been years for me as well, but thought the games were fun. Yes, dive into Hire of Fire tomorrow!

  17. Camille

    I love the toilet paper dresses! 🙂 The shower sounds like it had been fun! Throne of Glass was just okay for me and I haven’t really picked up my copy of Crown of Midnight yet but I still look forward to reading your review of Heir of Fire. And I’m contemplating on starting the Mercy Thompson series next 🙂 Have a great week ahead Kim!

      The series has become one of my favorite. Ooo Mercy Thompson series is fantastic, and I loved the characters and growth.

  18. Liza Barrett

    Love the toilet paper dresses 🙂 I’m insanely jealous of the Kim Harrison ARC — I very nearly have a countdown going for the release of the book. Enjoy!

  19. Rashika

    That bridal shower pic is adorable, Kimba! 😀 The toilet paper wedding dresses idea is so creative and fun! 😀 And all those dresses 😛 I am glad you guys had so much fun! 😀

    I am glad you got a copy of The Witch With No Name. I know a lot of people are looking forward to the finale of the series so I hope you’ll enjoy it! 🙂

    Have a great week, Kimba!

      Thanks Rashika, we had a very good time. I finished the Witch With No Name yesterday and it was simply amazing.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      It was my first time seeing the game and I loved how enthusiastically they all played it.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I refuse to be anything but optimistic despite the chaos surrounding me..LOL
