18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along and Book Blogger Hop

It's almost the weekend again, and it's been a wonderful week off for me.  I received my contract from the publisher, and today they put up my bio and interview on their website.  In addition, I've been on Spring Break from work, so I've gotten a lot of writing done.  In fact, I should be finished with the second book in my Destined Ones Series, Destiny Renewed, this weekend. 

I hope everyone else had a great week too.  So in the spirit of welcoming the weekend, here are the 18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along and the Book Blogger Hop. 

The 18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along is hosted by Bitten by Paranormal Romance, and it's a great chance for those who read and appreciate adult books to find others like them.

This week's question:  How many erotic books do you buy in a month?

It's a lot (she says somewhat sheepishly).  Ever since I got my Kindle, it's just too easy to find one, click purchase, and have it in my hands minutes later.  But let's say it's at least 4 a month.  But if you remember my answer from last week, I don't get that many read when I'm writing.  However, I'll be taking a small break from writing before I move on to the next book, so TBR pile (paperback and ebook), here I come!

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books. Each week she offers a question and bloggers answer it, so here's this week's:   If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?

Books by Charlotte Featherstone, Robin Schone, Marie Treanor, all of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood Series (I only own a couple)-including the new one out later this month, and if I had any money left over, a journal and some really nice bookmarks. 

If you found my blog through the 18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along or the Book Blogger Hop, please leave a comment so I can visit your blog and follow too!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Found you at the hop. I like a woman with a plan. I'm a total 'ohh shiny' shopper. Who knows what I'd end up with. That's half the fun of book shopping though isn't it?

Rachel- Endless Reading

I believe we're already following each other, but I am anticipating your book's release so that I can read it! It sounds so unique.

Congrats on the time and glad you're able to get at the second in the series. :) I get so excited about authors getting published. lol

Hey there! New follower stopping by from the 18 & Over tagalong. I have the same problem with my Kindle: it's waaaay too easy to hit that purchase button and have a new book to read. Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

Here's my hop!

Hi, hon - already a follower, but sharing the Friday love anyway. I completely agree, having an ereader has certainly increased my erotica purchases . . . and I'm so totally OK with that! :)

Hopping on in. Doesn't look like much overlap in genres between your interests and mine, but you do have a nice space here.

Howard Sherman said...

Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

Happy Hop Friday!

Hi! Just stopping by on the Hop. I'm your newest follower.
I love BDB! I've only read the first 3 though. But my bday's coming up and I asked my parents to get me the whole series. Of course they were like "OOOOHHH- Kay"-thinking I'm weird for wanting books for my bday but whatever...i'm so excited to read the rest!
BTW-I love your background.
Have a great weekend :)

Congrats on the book. What publishing company are you with?
