It's Monday! What are You Reading? October 27, 2014

This meme starts at Book Journey!

What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

We went through another three states and arrived safely in Maryland (eight states total in a week). We are relaxing and enjoying time with our son and his family. 

I enjoyed my reading last week although it was not a lot. I only finished two books but I did post three reviews and a giveaway. I also posted the usual memes. :-)

I did not get to visit during the week due to our traveling. I hope to get to do some visiting in the next few days.
Thanks as always to all the nice people who visit me.

These were last week's posts:

2. eBook/Kindle

Unleashed (Love to the Rescue)
by Rachel Lacey
I received this from Forever Romance through NetGalley for tour participation. It sounded really cute.  I have started it and like the characters. This will post with a giveaway either 10/30 or 11/3.
What happens when you find the right one at the wrong time?
Cara Medlen has a serious case of animal attraction. And it's not because of all the foster dogs she's rescued. She's got it bad for her incredibly sexy neighbor. Her one rule: Don't get attached. It's served her well with the dogs she's given to good homes and the children she's nannied. Yet the temptation of Matt's sexy smile might just convince her that some rules are made to be broken.

Matt Dumont doesn't need his skills as a private investigator to detect disaster on the horizon. Cara is everything he thought he'd never find-gorgeous, funny, and caring. But there's no way he can start a relationship just as he's about to move to another state. Talk about bad timing. As their attraction sizzles too hot to deny, they'll have to make a decision: forget the consequences and let loose, or forget each other and let go...

I expect I will start an Audio this week but I haven't decided what.

I am caught up on my daily Bible reading.
I have disciplined myself each morning to read my Bible passage before I pick up print, Kindle or mp3. I am really enjoying the reading.

Line Edits:
We are still finalizing formatting for two educational, non-fiction ebook releases which we sent back for a bit more polishing. We are also working on releasing several additional novels in print -- also polishing.

I keep plugging away at the books carried forward and the added NetGalley titles as well as the publicist/Author requests. 
I am have three reviews to post this week.

  1. Wow! You had a busy week AND you're very organised. I plan what I'm going to read and then get something new in and get sidetracked.


  2. Looking forward to your review on Unwritten.

  3. Lots of travelling with so many states crossed. Unwritten looks good from the cover and I hear the enthusiasm you have for it so I look forward to your review of it.
