A Valentines kiss - Lucie Hart

Have a great new week and happy reading!


  1. Oh, I sure love to watch your book shopping adventures :-D and yes, my own little book buying ban is still going strong! In fact my wishlist isn't really growing much either, because I fear if I put too many books on it I'll go into a book ordering overkill on July 1st, hahaha!

    1. Wow, it's amazing that you are still staying strong and that you are handling the ban in such a great way. Hope you will stay strong and achieve your goal.

  2. I love those Sterling covers. Thanks for bringing them to my attention. Perhaps, I should replace my old copies.

    1. That's exactly what I did, I think having several copies of classics is always a good idea.

  3. O wow, I made you buy a book. Now I really hope you like it.

    1. Me, too. :) The synopsis sounds good, so I'm hopeful. Will let you know when I read the book in a few weeks.

  4. OH, oooooohhhh, you have Grave Mercy *squee* I want to read the book too (but I'm waiting for the paperback edition) and I'm really curious how you will like it and if there will be a book impressions post :) Have fun reading!

    1. Thanks. I ordered the book when it cost 10 Euro, for that price I couldn't say no. :)

      Have a great weekend!

  5. Thanks for the linking. ;) I am sooooo excited how you'll like the book!!!! :) I really hope you do because I totally did. ;)
    Happy reading! Have a good start in the new week tomorrow!

    1. The synopsis sure sounds good, so I'm hoping for the best.

      Have a great week.

  6. Thank you so much for picking up my new book RADIATE! I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to your review. This book is part of me as it's a fictionalized version of what I went through as a teenage cheerleader with cancer. Please let me know what you think...and check out the book trailer at www.radiatebook.com

    All the best,
    Marley Gibson = )
