What I'll be reading next:

I'm not actually going to set myself any reading goals this week.  I'm just going to work on reducing my TBR pile & see how I get on.

Challenge updates:

Contests won:

I still can't get over what a fantastic week this has been for contests - I seem to be on a real lucky streak at the moment :o)
  1. I won an eBook copy of Tangled by Karen Erickson in a Valentines contest hosted by The Blackraven's Erotic Cafe
  2. I also won eBook Dust & Moonlight by Keta Diablo at the blog Quackers & Tease.
  3. Literary Escapism had a guest post with Shelley Munro who very kindly offered a copy of her eBook Scarlet Woman which is the first book in her Middlemarch Mates series
  4. Becky from The Bookette hosted a giveaway for publisher Strident Publishing for a copy of Bad Faith by Gillian Philip & I was completely shocked to find out I'd won.  Becky wrote a fantastic review for this book & I'm really looking forward to reading it.
  5. Author Stephanie Adkins spent a day guest posting at Coffee Time Romance & I was lucky enough to win a copy of her eBook Between Heaven & Hell.
  6. Susan Hanniford Crowley did a Valentine's guest post on the blog Patricia's Vampire Notes and I won a copy of her eBook A Vampire for Christmas
Such a great selection of books - I can't wait to read them all!

What are you reading?


  1. Looks like you got a ton of good reading done. Have a great week.

  2. Reducing your TBR pile. I used to aim to do that. Those days are long gone. I wish you lots of luck with that. Now I just aim to review two books a week. If I do that, I'm happy.

  3. Lucky girl, you won a bunch of great books. Enjoy reading them!

  4. I want to read the series of Percy Jackson and the Olymphians. Please elt us know how the first one turns out!

  5. The books you read last week all look pretty good. I hope you have another good reading week :)

    Congrats on all the contest wins! It makes me think that maybe I should start taking part in a few too.

  6. I'm not making plans either. I already just squished a book in inbetween what I'm already reading. I never keep to them, then start feeling stressed that I haven't!

    Congrats on all the contest wins too!

  7. Wow, you had a great reading week! And congrats on all of the contests you won! Hope you have another great week :)

  8. I'm currently reading several books at the moment, and this is one of them...

  9. @ Jess - it was a great week thanks :o) Hope you have a good one too!

    @ Becky - I doubt I'll have much luck reducing the TBR pile LOL but I'm going to give it a try :o)

    @ Nina - Thanks! Can't believe how lucky I've been over the last couple of weeks :o) I'm thinking it's a good time to start the lottery again LOL

    @ PensivePixie - I really liked the first Percy Jackson book & am looking forward to reading more from this series. I've posted a review if you want to read more :o)

    @ Chrissie - Hope you have a great week too! I've been entering loads of contests since I started blogging & it's definitely working so I'd recommend it LOL. Good luck if you do decide to enter some :o)

    @ Rhiana - I know what you mean LOL. If I select the next 5 books I want to read now the list would be completely different if I wrote it again tomorrow! I get annoyed with myself if I set goals & don't achieve them but prefer to choose the next book when I'm ready to start reading it :o)

    @ Serpentine Librarian - Thanks, hope you have a great week too :o)

    @ China - Thanks for visiting my blog :o) I'll go & have a look at your post now!

  10. Love so many of the books on your list from last week. Congrats on your contest wins and good luck reducing your tbr pile :-)

  11. @ Teddyree - Thanks :o) I doubt I'll get far at reducing the pile - there are so many fab books that I want to buy LOL but I'm going to give it a try!

  12. Glad you liked The Lightning Thief! Just waiting for that one to come through the hold list at the library!

  13. I am still reading the Lightning Thief. I seen the movie this past weekend and want ot review them both together.

    Have a great week!

  14. @ Amy - I hope you enjoy The Lightning Thief :o) I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!

    @ Sheila - have you seen the film yet? I've not got round to watching it but hopefully will get time to go at the weekend. Hope you enjoy them both :o)
