Hey Kids! How was your week? Mine was good. It was a pretty quiet week all in all.
Yesterday the fam and I went to Knott's Berry Farm. We had tickets from when Lisabea, Rosie and I had gotten together and never used (cuz it was pouring down rain) so we went to use them before they expired at the end of the month. What fun! My favorite was the Big Foot Rapids - totally cool! Of course my oldest's back got completely drenched and since it wasn't the warmest weather yesterday I had to buy her another shirt just so she didn't freeze - but it was a blast. My youngest and I went on a lot of rides together since I'm not a huge roller coaster person. I used to be but now I get motion sickness so my hubby and oldest go on the rides together. My oldest is a complete adrenaline junkie. I swear that girl will be climbing Mt. Everest when she's older!
Here's my youngest's version of fun (although she looks pretty bland about it she went on it 5 times in a row). She's the one on the far left.
And here's my oldest's version of fun. Bleck. I would have barfed out my eyeballs! lol She's the one 8th from the right, not that you can really see her.
Anyway, we had a great time and the kids were exhausted and fell asleep the minute we were in the car. Ahhhhh blessed silence! :)
What I read this week:
First up was Just the Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James. Review is below. I just loved the book and thought it was a great contemporary read.
Next was Montana Sky by Nora Roberts. This was the book I read for the Re-read challenge and you're going to have to check back next Saturday to see what I thought the second time around! :)
My next book was Land of Falling Stars by Keta Diablo. This is a civil war romance book that I was asked by the author to review. My review will be posted on Thursday.
Note the conveniently placed lock of fallen hair in this cover. I think she has more material at the back of her dress than the front.
My Year of The Category read for this month's challenge was Private Confessions by Lori Borrill Check back Tuesday for my thoughts.
Devil of the Highlands by Lynsay Sands was a book that I read for The Book Binge. I'm not sure when it will be posted but I'll keep you informed. Good book. I like her historicals.
Tempt Me Tonight by Toni Blake was my last read. I really like her books. I seem to sit down with her books and not want to put them down. This was the story of Trish and Joe. They were high school sweethearts and so in love & planned to get married. In a stupid, retarded, idiotic, drunken moment Joe didn't something very, very, very wrong and broke Trish's heart. Now it's 14 years later and Trish meets Joe again. It's a sexy, fun yet emotional book that tells the tale of forgiveness, trust and love. I very much enjoyed it.
