Thoughts for 2013. . .

It's hard to believe we have flipped over to a whole new year!  I'm looking forward to putting 2012 behind me and seeing what 2013 brings!  My 2012 ended on a rough note for me with losing my job right before the holidays but then I was blown away by the generosity of  someone I know online only and I can't wait to be back on my feet and find a way to pay it forward.  So that really helped brighten my mood and I am determined to keep it :)

My biggest goal for this year is to read some of the books I already own and not concentrate so much on review books.  I hope to only do around 4-6 review books a month and dedicate the rest to reading my huge pile of books I own, either paperback or ebook.  I probably have 200ish that I own and really want to read right now...eek!  So my blog may seem a bit quieter than before but I will still be here :)

So what books am I most looking forward to?  Here are a few:

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover (The Rules of Scoundrels, #2)

I'm sure you all know how much I adore Sarah MacLean so it should come at now surprise that this is at the top of my list :)

Lord of Darkness (Maiden Lane, #5)

Loving this series and I eagerly await each new Elizabeth Hoyt! If you have not yet read this series, you must start in order!

Any Duchess Will Do (Spindle Cove #4)

No cover yet but I fell in love with Tessa Dare last year and I am so impatient for this one! I look forward to reading her backlist this year.

The Wicked Deeds of Daniel Mackenzie (Highland Pleasures, #6)

The Wicked Deeds of Daniel Mackenzie. Daniel's story. Finally. Can't wait.  It is going to be a long wait until October.

The Dark Lady (Mad Passions, #1)

This one has caught my eye for something different.  The blurb has really intrigued me, so much so, I pre ordered it.  Buzz has been good so far surrounding it as well.  Love the cover :)

Well, thats my top 5 for now!  I have plenty more I am excited about so here is to a great reading year in 2013!  What are some of your top reads for the new year?


  1. Well, the first four have been sitting on my wishlist for aaaaages, way too long between books :)

    Off to check out number five, new author woohoo!

    1. I know! We will read them and then have another looong wait. The Dark Lady sounds promising so I'm anxious to read it! I like trying new authors :)

  2. Hey, Lisa! I'm so sorry to hear about you losing your job. That really is awful. I hope that you will continue to let me help. I enjoy it!

    I'm looking forward to so many books this year and have a lot of others that I need to read.

    What a wonderful friend you have. People care, you know it?


    1. Yes they do and it really helped me get more upbeat, which I really needed to do. I love the online romance community :)

  3. Some of the kindest people I know I've met online. I even met my DH online 9 1/2 years ago and I thank God daily that he came into my life.

    One of the things I'm planning on doing this year is reading more of the books that have been sitting on my shelves for years. I know there are many diamonds sitting there just waiting to be picked up. Some have been there for close to 20 years. I know.... GASP! LOL!

    1. Aww, that is so amazing!!
      That is exactly how I feel, I know I have some gems sitting in my bookcase and I am determined to find them this year :)
