Blog on Hiatus! I like to move it move it!


Hiya readers!
Please excuse my absence and slacking on the bloggity lately. There are big things happening in Casa Bambi... involving an impromptu move across the country! Watch out Arizona - here we come! I cannot tell you how excited I am to be moving to the land of Kristen Ashley and Diana Gabaldon. I am gonna fan girl all over the freaking place! So for the next couple months, I am not going to be posting much. I'm trying to pack up the house for me and the pups, and I have to head back out west to find a house. The move itself will be taking place mid-October, so my time in New Orleans is winding down. Things are super duper crazy and hectic. I am not getting much reading time for print books - but I am rocking the audiobooks. I am currently enjoying a Rock Chick audio marathon, and should be posting a series review soon.

ARC Review: The Time In Between by Kristen Ashley

Series:     Magdalene #3
Pub. Date:Aug. 29, 2017
Publisher:Self-Pub
Length:563 pages

Man, The Time in Between was so good that I want to immediately read it again. This is the third installment of Magdalene series, that takes place in picturesque small-town Maine. If this book doesn't make you want to live in your very own lighthouse, well, you just don't believe in magic at all!  I SOOOO want a lighthouse!  But I'm moving to Arizona in 6 weeks (land of Kristen Ashley!), so I wonder how weird they would find me if I tried to buy a slice of desert and build me a lighthouse on it? I can just imagine that majestic tower and revolving light in the midst of all the saguaro cacti. (I've lost my mind, I know.)

ARC Review: Monster in the Closet by Karen Rose

Series:     Baltimore #5
Pub. Date:Aug. 29, 2017
Publisher:Berkley
Length:512 pages
Source:NetGalley

This is my first read by Karen Rose... and I picked it up because I was in the mood for a good suspense/thriller story. Monster in the Closet is the 5th book in Rose's Baltimore series, and 19th overall in her romantic suspense lineup.  Prior to reading the book, I did not realize that all of the books are interconnected, told within the same universe and a somewhat common cast of characters. If I had known that ahead of time, I probably would not have started with this book. However, I stumbled along just fine and was able to follow the story. I was just missing all the backstory on the characters.  I think if I knew everyone's back story, I would have enjoyed this book even more. So I would recommend following the reading order if you have the time.
