It's my 2nd Blogoversary!

Two years ago today I started writing Palmer's Page Turners! I'm so glad I decided to  start this adventure! I've met so many awesome people through this journey, as well as read some amazing books! I've participated in readathons, Bout of Books, and several challenges along the way.  I've loved every minute of it! 

I want to thank all of you, my lovely readers, for your comments, support, and mostly, reading my blog! I appreciate you all so much and feel honored that other readers, book tour companies, and authors value my opinions and what I have to say about what I read. 

I'm so excited about the future of my blog and look forward to blogging for years to come! Thank you again for your continued support!!

Synopsis (Goodreads):

After an overseas mission goes wrong, Army Special Forces officer Jacob Kincaid knows where he must go to make things right: back home to the tiny town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. All he needs to scrub away his painful past is fresh mountain air, a lakeside cabin, and quiet solitude. But what he discovers is a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock.

Sophie Marren has nowhere else to go. She’s broke, intermittently seasick, and fighting a serious attraction to the brooding, dishy, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy who’s now claiming her dock. Something about Jacob’s dark intensity makes her want to tease—and tempt—him beyond measure. Neither one wants t…

A Day in the Life 2016

I just discovered this awesome blogger event this week, so I didn't get time to prepare my post to participate on the actual day (March 23) but Trish over at Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity (who is hosting this fun event!) said it was OK to link up all week, so I thought, why not? 
Here's my day: Thursday, March 24, 2016
6:00am: Hubby's alarm goes off. He gets up. I am happy I don't have to get up yet. Our black lab Peyton comes and snuggles closer to me. I fall back to sleep.
6:30am: I probably should get up. But instead I snuggle with the puppy some more.
6:40: Hubby lets me know he's leaving for work, so I turn the light on and make myself get up so I don't accidentally fall back asleep.
6:45am-7:45am: Feed Peyton,take him outside to do his business, come back inside, shower, get ready, make coffee, etc. I am NOT a morning person, so this is a slow process for me.
7:50am: Leave the house for work.
7:55am: Drop Peyton off at doggie daycare. I live in one smal…

From Goodreads:

It bean with A Discovery of Witches...

Historian Diana Bishop, descended from a line of powerful witches, and long-lived vampire Matthew Clairmont have broken the laws dividing creatures. When Diana discovered a significant alchemical manuscript in the Bodleian Library, she sparked a struggle in which she became bound to Matthew. Now the fragile coexistence of witches, daemons, vampires and humans is dangerously threatened.

Seeking safety, Diana and Matthew travel back in time to London, 1590. But they soon realize that the past may not provide a haven. Reclaiming his former identity as poet and spy for Queen Elizabeth, the vampire falls back in with a group of radicals known as the School of Night. Many are unruly daemons, the creative minds of the age, including playwright Christopher Marlowe and mathematician Thomas…

ARC April Sign Up

So here's the deal. I was going to do the A to Z challenge, but was just too overwhelmed with other things going on, specifically my large list of ARC's that need to be read in the next few months. I literally have a notebook I am carrying around that has a list of all my ARC's and deadlines/pub dates they have. I'm super excited to read the books, and only accepted books I was excited about, but still...I accepted a lot :)  So then I saw ARC April hosted by Read Sleep, Repeat, and though, now that's a challenge I can be successful with! Here are the details:

GuidelinesARC April, like ARC August is all about YOUR personal goal in regards to YOUR ARCs! This was made as a “low pressure” but maximum benefits kind of challenge and I really want to continue that! The only real rule for ARC April is any books you count towards the challenge MUST be an ARC. It can be an e-ARC or physical ARC. It can have a 2017 release date or an overdue date of 2010! As long as it is an A…

Teaser Tuesday: When in the Alps...

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: • Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! Today's Teaser come from What Happens In the Alps... by T. A. Williams:

"The lasagna was excellent and Annie found she was feeling very hungry. As she ate her lunch, she chatted to Massimo and Raffaella."

Italy, good food, winter sport season...this is a great book so far!
Look for my review on April 14!
Happy Reading!
