Hey everyone! How you guys doing? I hope you’ve had a wonderful week =)
New week just starting and it’s getting closer to my big move. I’ll be going to Brazil on April 1st and no, it’s not a joke =P
I am really looking forward to going, my best friends are really happy to have me back closer to them and since I haven’t seen my “husband”, Moischa in almost three years, it will be be an amazing reunion =)
Well, enough about m… oh, it’s Welcome to Larissa’s Life, so i guess it’s never really enough about me =)))
This week has been pretty weird for me… I went out with some friends and there is so much I will miss about Tel Aviv, but at the same time I spend so much time at home, reading and blogging/tweeting right now, that it doesn’t feel like it will make much of a difference where I am LOL
I really tried to get my reading on this past week and was able to read 6 books, bringing my total in 2010 to 55 so far =)
Book Read This Week:
- Abandon The Night by Joss Ware
- Roadkill by Rob Thurman
- Wolf Games by Vivian Arend (ARC)
- Talk Me Down by Victoria Dahl
- Start Me Up by Victoria Dahl
- Lead Me On by Victoria Dahl
The books written by Victoria Dahl, were my first foray into contemporary romance and I have to say I enjoyed them much more than I thought I would. I mean, I still crave the supernatural/paranormal/preternatural elements UF and PNR bring, but I will definitely read some more books like hers =)
Right now I am reading the eARC for the second book in Teresa D’Amario’s True Mates series and I am really happy do get me some werewolf loving hehe
This week I reviewed 2 books and 2 full series:
- Her Vampire Husband by Michele Hauf ARC (4/5 Loveys)
- First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost (3.5/5 Loveys)
- The Adrien English Mysteries Series by Josh Lanyon (4.5/5 Loveys)
- The Awakening Heroes Series by Joss Ware (3/5 Loveys)
*click on the titles to reach the reviews =)
I also had Helen from Helen’s Book Blog on my New Blogs on The Block feature and had the immense pleasure of interviewing one of my favorite author’s EVER, Jeaniene Frost… and she is also giving away a signed copy of her new book, First drop of Crimson to one of my lucky readers =) You can get more info HERE!
I think that after having Jeaniene Frost at my blog, the biggest thing that has happened around here this week was the debut of my new design! Created by the amazing Rachel from Parajunkee’s View. She put to life all my crazy ideas and I just am IN LOVE with it =)
I bought so many books this week that i am not even going to announce them LOL =) I did receive a few for review and they were:
- Dark Sucession by Teresa D’Amario (ARC)
- Vampire Kisses by Laura Stamps (ARC)
- The Killing Edge by Heather Graham (ARC – NetGalley)
- When Good Wishes Go Bad by Mindy Klasky (ARC – NetGalley)
I have received some requests from bloggers to have a supporting role on Larissa’s Life and I want to say that I have not made a decision yet, but I will make one soon. I have been going crazy keeping up with my reading and posting schedule and organizing things here for the move. I am really sorry for the delay =)
