Holiday Break

Regular readers know I put my blog on hiatus a couple of weeks during Christmas. This year, though, I'm going to take a break starting from today. The reason is because I'm leaving in just a few days to visit my family in Italy for three weeks and, after that, it's going to be crazily busy because of Christmas. So, no more posts until the new year . . . It seems a lot but I'm sure time is going to fly (as usual), look at the picture on the left, it's already Christmas here! ;)

Before I go, I wanted to thank each and everyone of you who stopped by during this year, left a comment, shared a post and supported me and my blog. It means A LOT, thank you all!!!!

Don't forget about us! See you all in the new year :D

Book Trailer for Oaklands Manor Trilogy by Terri Nixon!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of revealing my latest Book Trailer, and today I'm here to share it with you great readers and fellow book bloggers! :D For those not familiar with Oaklands Manor Trilogy—but lovers of Historical Fiction and Romance—each book tells a story of a different couple during the war. Although you could pick any of these books and have a great time with it, you should know that the characters are very well connected and that is why I would strongly recommend you to read the instalments in order. I read the whole Trilogy and truly loved it! It's emotional, captivating and quite original. If you're curious and want to know more, I linked my reviews under the video.

Now, without making you wait any longer, here's the Book Trailer for Oaklands Manor Trilogy by Terri Nixon!

Teaser Tuesday (#65)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB @ A Daily Rhythm.
Wanna play along? Grab your current read, open to a random page and share two sentences from somewhere on that page, being careful NOT to include spoilers (you don't wanna ruin the book for others!). Also, remember to include title & author as well so, if readers like your teaser, they can add the book to their TBR lists!


This week's teaser: UNTAMED by S.C. Stephens

And, oh my God...there was so much sex to be had! Backstage sex. Parking lot sex. Wall sex. Bathroom sex. Whips and chains sex. Cosplay sex. One-night stands. Threesomes. Orgies. And a partridge in a pear tree.

Let's do some colouring!

I've been sick for the past couple of weeks and, let me tell you, not a great feeling . . . I couldn't even bring myself to read that much, and we all know that is not good for bookworms like us :(

Thankfully, I'm almost completely recovered! I still feel a bit down, though, and that's why I decided to start something relaxing and fun at the same time: adult colouring books!!

The lovely people at Midas PR sent me both copies of Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest by Johanna Basford to review (be sure to follow A Thing for Life to read the review once it's up) and enjoy! You know I'm very artistic, so this is definitely going to cheer me up quite a lot ;)

Lots of my blogger friends have been having a very good time with this activity lately and, I must say, it's always a pleasure following their progresses on Instagram and/or Facebook!

What about you?
Are you into adult colouring books?

Waiting on Wednesday (#14)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine
in which we have the opportunity to spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.


This week's pick: THICKER THAN WATER by Brigid Kemmerer
Expected publication: December 29th, 2015 by Kensington

On his own

Thomas Bellweather hasn’t been in town long. Just long enough for his newlywed mother to be murdered, and for his new stepdad’s cop colleagues to decide Thomas is the primary suspect.

Not that there’s any evidence. But before Thomas got to Garretts Mill there had just been one other murder in twenty years.

The only person who believes him is Charlotte Rooker, little sister to three cops and, with her soft hands and sweet curves, straight-up dangerous to Thomas. Her best friend was the other murder vic. And she’d like a couple answers.

Answers that could get them both killed, and reveal a truth Thomas would die to keep hidden…

What do you think? And what are you waiting for?
Leave a comment with a link to your WoW so I can stop by and get excited, too! ;)
