I must remember to NEVER turn that show on at home. I’d never get anything done.
Since I didn’t get to read much on Monday, I decided to finish reading the book on Tuesday (because I wanted a book to report! And plus, I was close to the end anyway).
Here’s what I read the past week:
July 19: “Darker Than Midnight” by Lara Adrian, the 10th book in the Midnight Breed series, a paranormal romance at 360 pages. Blurb from book: In the dark of night, a blood war escalates within the hidden world of the Breed. After maintaining a fragile peace with the humans who walk beside them unaware, a single act of retaliation has put the vampire nation at risk of discovery. It falls to the Order—a cadre of Breed warriors pledged to protect their own and humankind alike—to stop Dragos, the power-mad vampire, before his push for domination explodes into catastrophe. At the center of the Order’s quest is
Chase, whose biggest battle is the one he wages against his own savage nature.
But when his eyes meet those of Tavia Fairchild, Chase finds himself drawn to
the woman—and convinced she is something much more than she seems. And while
everything logical warns Tavia against getting close to Chase, she cannot deny
that he stirs something ravenous within her. As the Order’s enemy mobilizes for
the battle of the ages, Chase and Tavia are thrust into the heart of the
violence. With time running out, they must find a way to defeat Dragos once and
for all—or die trying. If I didn’t know better, I’d assume this is
the last book in the series. Except I know better. This was a very enjoyable
read for me. I love suspense. And paranormal. And romance. This has it all
packed into a whopper of a book. Can’t wait to find out what happens next. J Sterling
Monday evening turned out to be super fun! The Dragons actually won, as did the Reds. I guess both teams really wanted me to have a fun birthday! Anyway… here are some pictures I took at the Dragons game.
A much different perspective than we're used to.
Hubby got me a birthday button and I took a selfie to show it.
That's my daughter behind me.
Hubby even got my name added to the birthday board!
The only things that didn’t show up in all the pictures: the little flies. They were everywhere! Bugged the heck out of me. Honestly, I don’t remember having that kind of problem in our regular seats. Maybe those buggers like the height better?
Have you ever watched
My daughter brought over her copy of the complete series (on DVDs) for me to
watch, since I’ve never seen it (I’ll blame my hubby for that). She likes it,
so I assume I would, too. Only problem is: finding the time to watch it. I
might be able to sneak in an episode (or 2) during my hubby’s walks (he’s not
interested and I won’t torture him). Hmmm… I can see this taking a LONG time.
Then again, he’s away on travel Aug 8-10. Roswell
So… Have you ever watched Flip or Flop? Do you enjoy home renovation shows? I didn’t think I would, but man, I couldn’t stop watching it!
