This Week in Reading - October 15

It's Sunday Post time!  This is hosted by the awesome Caffeinated Book Reviewer and gives us all a chance to recap our week.

What I Got:

Now that You Mention it by Kristan Higgins - I loved her last book that was more women's fiction than romance so I'm really looking forward to this one!  (Publisher)

Once Upon a Maiden Lane by Elizabeth Hoyt - I've never read Hoyt before but this novella looks to cute to pass up.  Plus, there's mistaken identity in a bookstore so that sounds pretty great.  (NetGalley)

Deja Moo by Kristen Weiss - Even if I hadn't read and enjoyed the 2 previous books in this cozy mystery series about a paranormal museum I would not have been able to resist this title! (NetGalley)

No Place Like You by Emma Douglas - I really enjoyed the first book in the Cloud Bay series and I'm excited to read this one which features a best friend's brother romance.  (Publisher)

Cowboy's Legacy by B.J. Daniels - I haven't read a cowboy romance in awhile and I enjoyed the last book I read by Daniels so I couldn't resist.  (Blog Tour)

Bel, Book and Scandal by Maggie McConnon - I read the first book in this cozy mystery series around a quirky family that runs a wedding destination manor house.  This involves a mystery from the main character's past that was referenced in the first book and I'm super excited!  (Publisher)


Reading:  The Betrayed by Heather Graham and Lona Chang by AshleyRose Sullivan

Listening:  I just finished The Chilbury Ladies' Choir by Jennifer Ryan (LOVE!) and am now listening to How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell and read by David Tennant!

Watching:  Not a huge amount but my oldest and my sister-in-law talked me into watching The Voice and I'm enjoying it.  I like that they're not mean - even to the ones who don't get on the show.  

Off the Blog:

Disney was amazing!  We went to Legoland and then all the Disney World parks.  We went to Mickey's Halloween party, hung out with Storm Troopers, Chipmunks, and all kinds of other characters.  We rode all the rides and walked almost 50 miles.  It was so much fun that I hated to leave but it's good to be home in my own bed and I'm already planning my next trip. 

This weekend I'm in south Mississippi visiting my grandparents but after that I'm looking forward to being home for awhile and getting out Halloween decorations and getting back into the regular routine.

  4. Darn it Katherine I am going to have to hop on to NetGalley and look at Deja Moo. You had to mention the paranormal museum! We never did Legoland, we moved to VA and it opened after, by then my kiddos were all about coasters. Hope you have a fantastic week!

  7. That's a great book haul - enjoy! Disney looks great. I'd loved to have been able to persuade my daughter to go when we were in California recently. Maybe next time.

  8. I loved your Disnet photos :) especially the storm troopers! Must've been one hell of a trip :) and that castle... Lovely.

    My Sunday Post

  15. You got some great books and it looks like you had a great time at Disney! :)

    Week in Review

  16. It sounds like a fabulous trip to Disneyland - my grandson would have loved it - especially with the addition of Legoland:). I hope your trip to see your grandparents is enjoyable and the weather is kind.

  17. Oh, the perfect Disney trip! I would need some time to recharge before going out on a trip again. You are jet ready! I hope you enjoy your visit.

  18. So glad Disney was amazing - how could it not be! Really looking forward to the Higgins book. I think I need to look for the Hoyt novella. Have a lovely week!

  19. Disney and Legoland must have been amazing! I hope you enjoy time with your grandparents. I hung my Halloween decorations this past week. My kids are so excited for Halloween. Have a great week and safe travels!

  20. We do like The Voice a lot, although it doesn't have nearly as varied a group of singers as they used to get. One of the reasons we like it is because they never are mean. Even if they don't think someone has done a great job, they go by that old chestnut "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."

  21. Legoland is awesome! We did Legoland and Disney last summer. It was a great vacation! Glad you enjoyed your trip!

  22. Lots of lovely new incoming books, and I love all the Disney pictures. It looks like you had a wonderful time.

    A wonderful week to you!
