J. Kaye's Book Blog
I finished some very good books last week!
[Note re codes:  YGR is You Gotta Read Reviews; CR is CataRomance Reviews, BTL is Between the Line/WRDF - these are the three sites where I read and review.  There are links under Some Friends on the sidebar for each of these. MBS is this blog - Martha's BookShelf!]


PB:  ----------------

Kindle2:  Wayward Angels - Wounded Warriors Book 4 by Karen Wiesner.  This was a wonderful story giving insight into the struggles of coping with Bipolar disorder! Review to be sent in this week for the author and YGR. An interview and Giveaway with Karen Wiesner, a multi-published author, is coming in January!

            The Spell by Regan Taylor - This romantic suspense has paranormal overtones in the nature of reincarnated lifes.  Lots of mystery and sensual intensity! Review to be sent to CR.

  1. I'll hopefully finish up TRUE BLUE today. I should have last week, but I mixed up the doctor's appt. :( It's this week. Oh and the 16th is a great starting time for me.

  2. You got quite a lot of good reading done last week!

  3. It sounds like you have a pile of good reads in progress. The twittered read-alongs with J. Kaye sound like SO much fun. Enjoy!

  4. Good reading week for you. I have True Blue in my audio pile and need to get listening to that. I also have It Happened One Night.

    Hope you have another good reading week!

  5. I have It Happened one Night to read..
    looking forward to reading your review.

  6. Nice week of reading! Where do you find all the time to read with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays? LOL

    Happy reading this week!

  7. Hi all- so sorry I never got to answer any of the comments the past couple of weeks.
    Kristen - yes that was a good reading week!
    Laughing Stars - the Twitter reads are fun! This week we are reading Getting Lucky by Carolyn Brown. J. Kaye jumped to a lead but I may have caught up this weekend!
    Crystal - I hope you enjoy both books!!
    Joy - I will get the review of It Happened One Night posted sometime this week - I just didn't manage it last week.
    Ruth - that's what happens: something else suffers - like responding to comments on the blog - as I can't get it all done!

  8. Oh - J. Kaye - I didn't mean to ignore you! Thanks so much for doing the Twitter chats with me!
