Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.” —Groucho Marx

January--What I Read

        I was only able to finish 7 Books from start to finish in January.    Since my bout in the hospital I find I am slower at reading and it takes a lot to make myself concentrate and focus on reading from start to finish.    In addition to the 7 completed books, I started several more and hope to finish them and their reviews by the end of March.   The started books include:
The Unmaking of Hunter Kennedy by Anne Elliott
Someone to Love by Addison Moore
The Big Exit by David Carnoy
Outsystem by MD Cooper

In addition to those started books, I still have plenty of books to finish up from December and those include:

Fate Fixed  & Blood Twist by Bonnie Wheeler
Mystery Falls by Marilyn Phillips
Warrant for Love by Sheryl Browne
Epidemic & Sanctuary by Samaire Provost
Dangerous Deception by Cindy McDonald

I would like to finish these books and post reviews by the end of March as well.    Please bear with me as I am full up for February, but March will be catch up month!    Hopefully I will not encounter sickness again.!    I hate being ill and I hate how illness can affect what I enjoy most in my life.......READING!

Don't forget to sign up for the rafflecopter for a free E-copy of Into the Dark before February 7th.   It's a great mystery suspense you will enjoy if you are into those, so don't miss out!

 I am also participating in the Fire & Ice Tour on February 4th, reviewing and giving away a copy of Somebody to Love by Kristan Higgins and on February 19th, reviewing and giving away a copy of Dancing in the Moonlight by Rae Anne Thayne.     Follow the Fire and Ice Tour here for a plethera of giveaways and great romantic reviews!!!  Here is the schedule:
