I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…

I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…

I blogged about ____ this past week…
This week's question: 
Name your least favorite plot device employed by way too many books that you actually enjoyed, otherwise.

My Answer:
This weeks question is a tough one. I don't really have any that I dislike. 

So since I'm not sure how to respond to it I'll do one of the other options.

How about up next I'm thinking of reading.....after being in a funk for the last couple of weeks. I decided I need a good romance to pull me out of my funk. 

I'm torn between two choices. Maybe you can help me choose.

Wingman rule number one: don’t fall for a client. 

After a career-ending accident, former NFL recruit Ian Hunter is back on campus—and he’s ready to get his new game on. As one of the masterminds behind Wingmen, Inc., a successful and secretive word-of-mouth dating service, he’s putting his extensive skills with women to work for the lovelorn. But when Blake Olson requests the services of Wingmen, Inc., Ian may have landed his most hopeless client yet.

From her frumpy athletic gear to her unfortunate choice of footwear, Blake is going to need a miracle if she wants to land her crush. At least with a professional matchmaker by her side she has a fighting chance. Ian knows that his advice and a makeover can turn Blake into another successful match. But as Blake begins the transformation from hot mess to smokin’ hot, Ian realizes he’s in danger of breaking his cardinal rule.… 


Beautiful Distraction 
by J.C. Reed 
Add to (Goodreads)
From the New York Times bestselling author J.C. Reed comes a new sexy standalone novel

Kellan Boyd always gets what he wants—except that one infuriating city girl who bumped into his new chick magnet sports car, dared to call him a jerk, and basically threw his pity check in his face.

Fast forward three months later. When Ava Cross suddenly knocks on his door in the middle of a storm, soaking wet and in dire need of help, he’s determined to settle old scores and finally get her between the sheets where she belongs.

Ava knows Kellan is a complex man with a dark past and a wild reputation he can’t deny. Forced to stay, Ava begins a desperate search for the truth about the one man she wants to despise and quickly discovers that the passion she feels for him isn’t just deep…it’s dangerous to her heart.

Kellan is a beautiful distraction. When the traps of her own weakness stand in the way, Ava is faced with one choice only: peel off the layers of a man who is a wild cowboy at heart.

Author’s note – Beautiful Distraction is a full-length standalone novel with no cliffhanger. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Manga Monday

Created by Alison Can Read
I don't see it as a current weekly on her blog but she does have a great list of manga's that she's read or reading. Be sure to check her out. 

 I'm new to the manga world this is only my third but I've fallen in love with them. Recently I've not had a lot of time to sit down and read like I would like so I'm hoping this will motivate me to read more of them. This month I'm hoping to read 10 volumes if not more. I would love to finish my current and start a new one.

I didn't get to read any this past week but I'm planning to finish it this week. 

I want to start one of the new ones I've had suggested to me. 
Anyone else currently addicted to manga?
