    It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Kim. 🙂 I’m doing Blog Ahead too so good luck to us! lol 🙂 Great additions to your library. Gyaah, you have Visions in Silver! Have fun and happy week ahead, Kim! 🙂

    I’m so sad I haven’t gotten Mortal Heart yet, but hopefully soon! I’m totally okay with it not looking like Christmas anytime soon, lol! It only got into the 60’s today and I had the heat on. I hope you have a lovely week Kimba and enjoy all of you new (and awesome) books!

    Wow, you are steam-rolling through Blog Ahead — I’m really impressed. I also enjoyed your review for Make You Remember, it sounds like a fun series. Have a great week!

    It is beginning to look like Christmas- I’ve seen trees up (and not just in the stores). We saw one on our neighborhood tonight LOL. Yikes… having fun with the readathon, and I’ve got one book down so I won’t be a total fail. 🙂 It is nice to get some holiday reads going.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Katherine

    The Readathon looks like such fun! I wasn’t able to participate this year but have been enjoying everyone’s posts and can’t wait for all the Christmas book reviews! I want to read The Mistress Experiment! I hope you love it than I can justify going out and getting it! Have a fantastic week!

    Apparently I lied about not having any winter/Christmas books. After you questioned that, I searched through my kindle and found 2 I didn’t even know I had. D’oh! I mean, I know getting your HoHoHo on without me is tough, because I’m the queen of Hos, but you’ll do fine. lol.

    I’m glad you’re having so much fun with the read-a-thon! You got some great additions to your shelves this week too. I’m curious about your upcoming audiobook post. I’ll have to come back for that. Have a fabulous week, Kimba!

    It seems that with the start of the read-a-thon all the shops around here went Christmas crazy. I went out yesterday and they even had a gospel choir singing carols in the shopping centre, which coincides nicely with the festive reading of the moment 🙂

    Sounds like you have some great discussion posts coming up on your blog this week, so I’m looking forward to reading those.

    Busy, busy! Mortal Heart looks great! I really need to kick on with this series, I just loved book 1 and I know I have Dark Triump on my Kindle just waiting for me. Thanks for the reminder!
    And that the Mara Dyer series is complete, I’d like to try that one too. So many books to try to squeeze in 🙂
    Happy reading!

    I’m always amazed by bloggers who participate in read-a-thons, I just don’t fell like I can do that at all.
    I love the books you received this week, Kim. I got some of the same ones, and I’m interested in others. I haven’t started the Mara Dyers series yet, I’m not sure why, I just haven’t.
    I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, Kim. Happy reading.

    Thank you for mentioning my post, Kimberly! 🙂

    I was wondering what this #HoHoHoRAT means. I’ve missed a lot – obviously. We had to do some repairs in the apartment so I didn’t have time to read, let alone visit blogs. Thank you God, everything is finished, so now I can relax.
    Oh, Mortal Heart – I can’t wait to read it.

      I read them first, than listen on audio on release day ..otherwise my heart will implode from I own this series is eBook, hardcover and audio. Fangirl much?

    I’ve been working hard on Blog Ahead this week as well, I managed to schedule 8 posts ahead for December. And quite some for November as well.

    You got some great books this week. I realy enjoyed Untamed! I have the first book in that series by Anne Bishop, but haven’t read it yet, heard good things about it though!

      Oh I wanted to dive right into Vision in Silver..but I am in the middle of the Ho-Ho-Ho read-a-thon. I am thinking I will dangle it like a carrot in front of me for incentive to get my 30 blog Ahead posts done..than I can totally lose myself in it.

  13. Lark

    I am sooo not ready for Thanksgiving let alone Christmas, but thanks to the HoHoHo RAT, I’m getting in the holiday spirit. Looks like you got a ton of great books this week! Have fun with the rest of the RAT and with the blogging challenge, and wish me luck with NaNoWriMo, because it’s not going well.

    45 days till Christmas (yes I countdown) I am so excited about Ho Ho Ho haven;t been reading as munch since it was a busy weekend but the book I am reading is adorable and I have spent a lot of my time watching Hallmark Channel Christmas Movies and I am so 100% in the holiday spirit! If my house would let me I would decorate the house but the next couple weeks I will be decoration hunting 🙂 Love new decorations. I am looking forward to the chat today and I am stinking big time on the blog ahead. I have 30 posts set up but for this month and just when I thought I finished them, I have to go back and fix them again (this is my second time) but the perfectionist in me wont let it go 🙂
    Have a great week Kim and Happy Christmas reading 🙂

    I’m really enjoying the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon. And though it’s getting cooler here my roses are still blooming so it doesn’t feel much like Christmas or even Thanksgiving yet. You got some great books this week–especially Visions in Silver…I’m jealous!

    I also picked up The Girl In Between from Amazon. But since I wind up with so many freebies, I don’t include them in my Stacking the Shelves post. I originally signed up for the HO-HO-HO read-a-thon, but when I looked at my TBR list, I didn’t have *any* holiday books that I wanted to read. So, I’m going to just focus on the review books with publication dates the first week of December!

    I read the 3 books for #HoHoHoRAT and now I am really in the holiday mood. Everyone is talking about The Retribution of Mara Dyer! Is this a really good series? Since it’s a trilogy I think I’ll try to read it next year. Have a great week!!

    I haven’t really started thinking about Christmas yet – but watching all yall update on your Christmas reads is slowly getting me there 🙂 I’m making my list for when I’m ready – early December probably. Hope you’re having a great week!
