The Scorpio Races not pictured.
I've been quite busy with tours lately. Huge thanks goes out to my book group for putting Incarnate & The Scorpio Races on tour! I'm reading Incarnate right now, and although I haven't gotten far, so far so good. I like the writing and Ana & Sam. I've heard The Scorpio Races is good, so I hope I enjoy it too.

I won The Beginners from GoodReads. I liked the cover, and when I read the summary I thought it would be a YA/adult type book. Then a few weeks passed & I read a review, and yeah...I was wrong. Doesn't sound like my cup of tea; I'm honestly not sure when I'll get around to it.

Finally, I won an ARC of Lola and the Boy Next Door. Super excited when I found out I won! :D I've already read it, and omg... I loved it even more than Anna and the French Kiss, which I loved a whole lot! It was so good and just perfect. I cannot wait for Isla and the Happily Ever After. (I'm crossing my fingers for cameos from Anna/St. Clair and Lola/Cricket in that one!) Big thanks to Arena @ The Nerd's Wife for hosting the giveaway!

Well, that's it for this week. Time for me to get back to Incarnate. Have a great week! :)
