December Monthly News

Welcome to the December edition of monthly news! I cannot believe the end of the year is already here!! Time sure does start moving at a faster pace the older you get. My 42nd birthday came and went. It was a time of fun and reflection. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and I wish you the best for this new year! I made my reading goal of 50 books too! It's a good feeling to meet a personal goal. Did you have any personal goals that you met? Will you have any for next year?  Oddly enough, my favorite book of the year is one I have read many times. Some books will always be great reads, and my pick is one of them. 2019 will be a year of knowing my own worth and evaluating relationships. You have to ask yourself what is most important, and categorize your priorities accordingly. Over 40, you start to really think of these things more. Your bullshit-o-meter is sensitive as you age, and with that comes wisdom. I look forward to being much happier next year! Wishing you all a happy and p…

Kindle: 509 KBPrint Length: 113 pagesPublisher: Harlequin Teen (Dec 1 2013)ASIN: B00DPAFPQG
AMAZON US   |   AMAZON CA   |   AMAZON UK

In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series The Dark Elements, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn't just Jasmine's crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining the balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn't help that Jas's father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he's back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn't taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sw…

#Win Ask No Mercy by Martin Osterdahl (US)

After studying Russian at university and having had the opportunity to go behind the Iron Curtain more than once, he decided to relocate and finish his master’s thesis there.
The 1990's were a very exciting time in Russia, and 1996, with its presidential election, was a particularly crucial year.
