Blog Tour: The Lady is Daring by Megan Frampton (Excerpt, Giveaway, Teaser Review)

The duke’s five daughters have beauty, breeding, and impeccable reputations. Or at least, they did. Now that two have chosen to follow their hearts, can the others be far behind? It was easy for society to overlook Lady Ida Howlett; they found her bookish, opinionated, and off the marriage mart. But little did they know that behind a calm exterior beats the heart of an adventuress, one who, determined to discover her runaway sister’s whereabouts, steals a carriage and sets off on a daring mission. Then she discovers she’s not alone! Bennett, Lord Carson, is inside, and he refuses to leave. … Continue reading Blog Tour: The Lady is Daring by Megan Frampton (Excerpt, Giveaway, Teaser Review)

#ARCtober – PREPARE YOURSELF for an ARC reading challenge

I was so inspired by Octavia over at Read.Sleep.Repeat when she did her #ARCAugust reading challenge, and I got so many ARCs knocked out on my TBR. I was randomly whining on Twitter about how I need another challenge like this when my bestest book buddy Peekaboo (aka @booksandsass) said “Dude, let’s do our own #ARCtober.” AND SO #ARCtober IS BORN! Come back for more info about rules and stuff on Oct 1. But there will be a readathon (or two? I’m still figuring it out?) and ARC bingo and probably a Goodreads group, and also PRIZES. But I need … Continue reading #ARCtober – PREPARE YOURSELF for an ARC reading challenge

Discussion: ARC Life (the actually really great flip side)

Last week Peekaboo did a really wonderful guest post about ARC life (or why being a rabid book fan is actually really hard sometimes). In her post Peekboo makes some really great points, and I included some thoughts of my own at the end, especially about stress and burnout. (Especially as I sit here looking at my list of 74 digital egalleys that I need to somehow get through… and that doesn’t even include the physical ARCs… and all I really want to do is reread Howl’s Moving Castle…) Anyway, I thought this week I’d take a look at this … Continue reading Discussion: ARC Life (the actually really great flip side)
