Thrifty Thursday [270]

I hope you all have had a great week so far and that you have an even better weekend coming up. It's been a crazy week at work for me, but it should be calming down soon (I hope!). This past weekend we went to a renaissance festival with some others and had a great time. It was 97F and I felt like I was melting but I'm glad we went. My hives from heat are coming back which means the medicine I'm on is no longer helping. My allergist suggested I increase the dosage again and let him know if it helped in 2 weeks. Fingers crossed it helps since this is the only medicine so far that's worked even a little bit. 

PS: Bella says hiiiii and that she won't tell if you give her a treat ;)

WoW [315] - Rage by Cora Carmack

Title: Rage
Author: Cora Carmack
Series: Stormheart #2
Release Date: June 11th, 2019

Princess or adventurer.

Duty or freedom.

Her Kingdom or the Stormhunter she loves.

If Aurora knows anything, it's that choices have consequences. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan. 

In disguise as the rebel Roar, she puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion. But the Rage season is at its peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. Yet these storms are different—they churn with darkness, and attack with a will that’s desperate and violent. 

This feels like more than rage. 

It feels like war.
Why I am waiting:
This is going to be a long wait but one I'm eager for so I'm going to post about it now! I know the author has been struggling with health issues the past few months but I'll wait however long I need to for book 2!

Speakeasy by Sarina Bowen
Sometimes you fall for Mr. Right. And sometimes for Mr. Right Now…
May
Did you hear the one about the girl who walks into a bar and catches her live-in lover kissing someone else? No? You’re the only one in town who missed it.
Luckily Alec is there to wrap me up in strong arms and carry me out the door before things get too ugly. And that’s not all Alec is good at. Our unexpected chemistry makes him the perfect rebound guy.
Alec
I should know better than to hook up with my rival’s little sister, but the fiery look in May’s eyes really turns my crank. She needs cheering up, and I’m just the guy for the job.
It’s not like I’ll fall in love. Not even after a string of scorching hot trysts, and the realization that we’re good at the same things: wild nights and familial disappointment. I don’t do love, never have, never will. So this is the perfect arrangement, for both of us.
Nobody would approve, but nobody has to know…

Thrifty Thursday [269]

Happy Thursday, everyone! Bella did pretty well with her spay up until Sunday so I took her back into the vet to get checked out this past Monday. She's on antibiotics and had a shot to help ease her stomach and she's been doing great since then. Though she does want the cone of shame off NOW haha. She's slowly chewing her way through it so I'll have to replace it soon. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Author: Christine Feehan
Series: The Shadow Series #3
Release Date: May 29th, 2018

The paparazzi can't get enough of infamous bad boy Giovanni Ferraro. But unknown to them--and the women he beds--he's just playing a role. Keeping the spotlight on himself keeps it off the family business. And if this lethal shadow rider can't hunt in the dark, he'll find his pleasure elsewhere...

Sasha Provis grew up on a Wyoming ranch and thought she knew how to protect herself from predators. But in the nightclub where she works, she's fair game--until one of the owners steps in to protect her. Giovanni is gorgeous. He's dangerous. And his every touch takes her breath away.

The devil at her heels may have finally met its match...
Why I am waiting:
I'm addicted to this series, if you're looking for a paranormal romance with a sexy alpha male look no further. The paranormal aspect is very unique and not something I've seen before. I've been making grabby hands since I heard this one was coming out.

Aftermath by Kelley Armstrong
Three years after losing her brother Luka in a school shooting, Skye Gilchrist is moving home. But there's no sympathy for Skye and her family because Luka wasn't a victim; he was a shooter.

Fighting for Everything by Laura Kaye
Loving her is the biggest fight of his life…

Home from the Marines, Noah Cortez has a secret he doesn’t want his oldest friend, Kristina Moore, to know. It kills him to push her away, especially when he’s noticing just how sexy and confident she’s become in his absence. But, angry and full of fight, he’s not the same man anymore either. Which is why Warrior Fight Club sounds so good.

Kristina loves teaching, but she wants more out of life. She wants Noah—the boy she’s crushed on and waited for. Except Noah is all man now—in ways both oh so good and troubling, too. Still, she wants who he’s become—every war-hardened inch. And when they finally stop fighting their attraction, it’s everything Kristina never dared hope for.

But Noah is secretly spiraling, and when he lashes out, it threatens what he and Kristina have found. The brotherhood of the fight club helps him confront his demons, but only Noah can convince the woman he loves that he’s finally ready to fight for everything.

My puppy is getting spayed today so fingers crossed it all goes well. Yet another busy weekend coming up for me, I'll be glad when things calm down a bit. There's a food festival in my town that happens each year and we had a lot of fun when we went last year. I'm debating if I should go off my diet for the event since delicious food, ya know? We have tickets to go see Deadpool 2, I already know I'll be eating popcorn which breaks my diet lol. I'm almost done knitting the super secret cowl I can't share it yet but it's turning out gorgeous and I'm already planning my next project. Oooh and I'm repping one of the alphas on the Alpha Showdown post, I'll let you know when to stop by and cast your vote ;)

WoW [313] - Too Wilde to Wed by Eloisa James


Author: Eloisa James
Series: The Wildes of Lindow Castle #2
Release Date: May 29th, 2018

No one is more surprised than Lord North when he returns from war to find his ex-fiancee in his ancestral home...working as a governess in a sexy, fiery new Wildes of Lindow Castle romance by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James...

The handsome, rakish heir to a dukedom, Lord Roland Northbridge Wilde—known to his friends as North—left England two years ago, after being jilted by Miss Diana Belgrave. He returns from war to find that he’s notorious: polite society has ruled him “too wild to wed.”

Diana never meant to tarnish North’s reputation, or his heart, but in her rush to save a helpless child, there was no time to consider the consequences of working as a governess in Lindow Castle. Now everyone has drawn the worst conclusions about the child’s father, and Diana is left with bittersweet regret.

When North makes it clear that he still wants her for his own, scandal or no, Diana has to fight to keep from losing her heart to the man whom she still has no intention of marrying.

Yet North is returning a hardened warrior—and this is one battle he’s determined to win.

He wants Diana, and he’ll risk everything to call her his own.
Why I am waiting:
I enjoyed book 1 in this series and can't wait to get my hands on this installment! I've been on a mystery or paranormal kick lately so this Historical Romance should do nicely to change things up for me.

Mare Barrow learned this all too well when Cal’s betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart—and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like her—Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all . . . starting with the crown on Maven’s head.

In the epic conclusion to Victoria Aveyard’s stunning series, Mare must embrace her fate and summon all her power . . . for all will be tested, but not all will survive.

Thrifty Thursday [267]

Happy Thursday everyone! I've been crazy busy at work lately so I haven't gotten enough time to do blog visits lately. That should calm down soon thank goodness but it has been so stressful lately. I also signed up for another Craftsy class for knitting to try to learn brioche knitting, hopefully I'll get to that sometime soon. This style is a bit complicated so I knew I wanted to do a video class with full instructions. I went ahead and bought yarn for the brioche class and I'm also working on a super secret test knit I can't share pictures of until the pattern is released in June/July. I can't wait to share that since it's a gorgeous cowl. I'll be using the far left teal yarn for it ;)
