Misfits Thai Chicken Burgers & Chili-Lime Potato Wedges 2016 TBR Challenge

For TBR Challenge this month I am sooo cheating. Well, sort of. I had intended to read The Sleeping Night by Barbara Samuel, but I completely forgot about the deadline (note to self: add a one week reminder to my TBR Challenge calendar). But Misfits by Garrett Leigh, the book I’m reviewing today, also qualifies.

2016 TBR Challenge: The Forbidden Rose by Joanna Bourne

This month’s TBR Challenge these was Series Catch-Up and I am way behind on the Spymaster series by Joanna Bourne. Well, technically, I’m not behind so much as rationing them. I’ve read My Lord and Spymaster and The Spymaster’s Lady so this is my third by her. After this I have two more to go

2016 TBR Challenge: Darling Infidel by Violet Winspear

Don’t forget, just a few more days to enter to win an ebook copy of Hard Knocks by Ruby Lang.

Louisa is

As I was skimming the lists, I recognized several books I absolutely loathed. Of course, I loved Carolyn Crane’s Off the Edge from last year

Roses Have Thorns Lasagna 2015 TBR Challenge

It’s TBR Challenge time again! This month’s theme was “Kickin’ it Old School”, which is most definitely not a problem for me as the vast majority of my TBR pile is acquired via used bookstores and thrift stores and it would be a rare book that isn’t more than ten years old. So I literally

Angels’ Blood by Nalini Singh 2015 TBR Challenge

 The TBR Challenge this month was a “Recommended Read” and E from Bookpushers had been steadily insisting that I read Nalini Singh for…oh…roughly forever? I’d purchased a used paperback copy of Angels’ Blood a while ago, but I have a tendency not to read paperbacks now that I have a Kindle. I mostly read in
