 What I’ve Been Watching

📺 Supernatural  – The Hubby and I just started watching this a few weeks ago and I wasn’t too sure at first, but we are almost done with Season 2 now and I am completely hooked!
📺 Young and Hungry  – We like to have a 1/2 an hour show to watch as filler…this one is just ok.

Current Giveaways

    None at the moment! Stay tuned. 🙂

    1. Jenea's Book Obsession

      My daughter is watching Supernatural, I think she is on season 6 and loving it so far. You got some gretty great books and I hope you enjoy them. 🙂

    2. Lots of tempting books on your summer reading list. I’ve also read Bring Me Back, Surprise Me, and Without Merit. I’ve had Stillhouse Lake resting comfortably on Pippa, my Kindle…for too long! Must read soon.

      Enjoy your books…and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

      I haven’t been here in a while…I like your new look.

        I was genuinely surprised to like it. I think sometime I avoid things that have such a huge fan base because I expect them to disappoint!

    3. I’ve enjoyed Ellery adams’ Books by the Bay series so far (I think I’m on book three), and I’ve read a few of her other books too. I haven’t read those Divergent shorts though- I’m kinda curious!

      The simple Wild sounds great too.

        The Divergent shorts were good very quick reads. It’s funny because I started that Adams’ series because I had previously started another of her series and loved it but couldn’t find the next book at my library. After reading and loving these, I finally got the book I had been waiting for and DNFed it! LOL

        Yeah–I’ve resisted watching Supernatural all these years but my husband convinced me to give it a shot and we are both really enjoying it. On season 3 now.

      Glad to hear that you still live. I enjoyed those books by Rachel Caine and have Read and Gone coming up on my review pile. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    5. A Thousand Perfect Notes is one that I really want to buy! I follow the author on instagram and she has the most beautiful account (@paperfury). I just read your review for The Simple Wild too, and it’s going on my list as well!

      I love Young & Hungry and Supernatural! I’m still on season 1 of Supernatural but it’s definitely picking up and getting a groove going. Young & Hungry really picked up for me in season 2 if I recall correctly – might want to hang in there with that one!

      My post is here. Have a great week!

    6. Isn’t Supernatural great? I really enjoy the show as well. Looks like you’ve had a great summer of reading! I’ve been so out of it lately. Hopefully I can get back into my reading and blogging soon. Have a great week!

      Congrats on living! 😀
      I love Kristan Higgins and I really want to read Good Luck With That. And the cover for Specters of Nemesis is striking! I’ve never heard of this one but I’ll have to look it up now.
      Hope you have a good week and happy reading!

    8. Glad to see you live and linking at MM. 🙂
      Looks like it’s been a good summer. I didn’t know Roth did all those novellas.
      I have been eyeing Read and Gone for months. I might see if it is still available at NG.
      Happy Reading!
