My Weekend: Books
What Been Going On Lately

Since the summer begin, I've been shopping for books every weekend. It obvious I did, if you have seen my previous posts in the last three months since summer. Most are brand new book as stand alone or part of an series book. It can't be help that when I see books I want, I grab for it. I won't count how many books are towering currently in my TBR pile -- I'm already scare to even look. So far the heavy Outlander book have kept all the books down from attacking me at night, those who conspiracy against me. But I had my Deveraux's Knight In Shining Armor to protect me and keep me safe while I sleep ;) Below are all the books I've brought for July. These were brought on a different days and different weeks, not on same day.

In the past I've read book by Nora Roberts, Suz Brockmann, Laura Griffin, Anne Stuart and Dee Davis. These authors are some of my favorite. Leslie Parrish, JoAnn Ross, Cynthia Eden, Lisa Marie Rice and Shiloh Walker is 'new to me author'. These are the authors I've heard many raves about and I'm now just starting to buy their books.

I heard nothing but raves about JoAnn Ross' High Risk series. So I decided to give those a try and see what the raves all about. I have all the books except for book #2, but will buy them later. But since I do have book 1 already, I shall start with that one first.

The Search by Nora Roberts
Cold Sight by Leslie Parrish (book #1 Extra Sensory Agents)
Dangerous Desire by Dee Davis (book #2 A-TAC series)
The Missing by Shiloh Walker

One Last Breath by Laura Griffin
Freefall by JoAnn Ross (book #1 of the High Risk series)
Shattered by JoAnn Ross (book #3 of the High Risk series)
Breakpoint by JoAnn Ross (book #4 of the High Risk series)

Infamous by Suz Brockmann (new book, it's not a navy SEALs book)
Deadly Fear by Cynthia Eden (book #1 of the Deadly series)
Into the Crossfire by Lisa Marie Rice

The House of Rohan by Anne Stuart (free ebook, it a prequel first start on her upcoming new historical trilogy of The House of Rohan book. The link above shall take you to the blog about the prequel free ebook of that title. And to read more info on the first three upcoming trilogy, you can see it here. Next week I'm planning to buy Ruthless it's book #1 that start the first trilogy of The House of Rohan books.

I'm currently reading Almost Perfect by Susan Mallery and Enigma by Dee Davis. And then when I'm done, I'm going to joint-read Nora Roberts' book #3 of Savor the Moment and Suzanne Brockmann's Out of Control with my blog friend Alice from Hello, My Name Is Alice. I've always enjoy joint-read with her :)

I still have few more pending book reviews I need to post soon. Sorry for the delay. I've just been too busy during the summer and couldn't take the time to sign in and post. School will start on August 11 for kids over here. Parents are already starting to buy new clothes and school supplies for their kids. Once school start again, then I will be able to post more often.

Also - since my AC adapter had died and I couldn't charge it up on my laptop to retrieve the list of books that I've read for month of July, I would have to delay posting it for few days. Hope I get a new AC adapter this week!

And yes...I changed my layout/format of my blog. I hope you like it! Every now and than, I like to change them. Just to make the blog lovely and more better. Plus my mood changed all the times. What did you think? I hope everyone have a good rest of the weekend! Happy reading! :)

Love your new layout, Julia!
I grinned when you mentioned about your towering TBR pile because I'm sure many of us would be able to relate to that, hehe. Oh, I loved Deveraux's Knight In Shining Armor!!! That's one of my favourites by her! :D
