Time for another Saturday Confession

I have found out something about myself recently. I love books that make me cry! I'm blaming Kristen Ashley for this. I started to notice this as I was reading her Fantasyland series. I finished reading Broken Dove this week and ugly crying was involved. I love this series!

 I frequently spend time waiting in my van with my kindle while the kids are doing things or my hubby is busy working. It's sort of embarrassing to have them return and I am sitting there with tears just rolling down my face.

I have a hypothesis that this sort of crying is good for me and actually helps me keep my emotions in check during real life events. I'm about to put it to the test this coming week when my oldest graduates from high school and my baby graduates 8th grade from her k-8 school.  Two huge steps for our family that I have been dreading and they both happen this coming Thursday!  Yikes!  I plan to take tissues just in case.

For me to enjoy these books, they must still have the happy ever after ending. Without the HEA, I couldn't do it.  Feel free to share your favorite tear inducing books!  I need to add more to my shelves!

Big Week for New Releases!

There are several new books releasing this week from authors that I love! First up is the third book in the A Warrior's Challenge series from Natasza Waters, Code Name: Nina's Choice. I'm very excited about this one. It's going to be Mace's story. Doesn't it have a great cover?

Next up this week is the next book in Cherise Sinclair's Dark Haven series, Edge of the Enforcer. I just re-read My Liege of Dark Haven over the weekend to get ready for this one. It is the story of deVries and Lindsey and I cannot wait to read this one.

It's a Tuesday Truth

New semi-regular feature here will be the Tuesday Truth.  Today's truth is a fact about me.  I don't like to leave books unfinished.  I'm no quitter and sometimes find myself struggling to finish a book.  I hate when that happens!  What about you?  Do you have a pile of DNF books or do you always follow through to the bitter end?

I'm struggling with one right now.  It is the first book by this author and it is also the first in a series.  I have several of them on my kindle and was looking forward to them but this first book is slow going for me.  I'm just not drawn in yet.  This will not be a five star read for me.

I do have a five star read in my recent history that was also a struggle for me to read but for a different reason.  It was just so intense at times that I had to turn my kindle off and go do something else for a while. It was a fascinating book and also the start of a series.  It's one where I want to read more even though it was torture at times.  Maybe I'm a book masochist?  Could be!  This is the book that I'm talking about.
