I didn’t do anything productive this quarter either. *sigh* I did request some new books, that I totally shouldn’t have, but oh well. I actually just started reading again this week. I have a review request I am working on and then going back to galleys for the rest of the year. I want to at least beat my challenge. I did have my baby, so at least the baby brain hormones have passed and I can focus again, when I don’t have an infant in my arms anyway. I’ve been using breastfeeding time and nap time (I let her sleep on my chest a bunch since she is textbook clingy for the forth trimester) for my reading time. It’s working out, although a little slowly. She is actually in her pack and play behind me crying because she doesn’t want to be set down. A mother’s job is never done.

For those of you who might not know, or who have simply forgotten, and even for those of you who have been waiting around for information; I figured I should tell everyone that I had my baby! I found out I was pregnant on New Year’s Day, so I have very literally been pregnant all year. My daughter was due on September 1st, but apparently was far too comfortable, so I was 10 days overdue before I had to have an induction. A mechanical induction followed by 12 hours of labor and my beautiful little girl finally made her debut.

Needless to say, I am off on a bit of a hiatus while I figure out this whole parenting thing. I’m struggling with my breastfeeding, so that is eating a bunch of time and energy.

I will not be taking any requests/tours/etc for my blog until the end of October at the earliest. Chances are, I will skip out on these (unless I sign up for them directly, of course) until the end of the year so that I can focus on my baby and try to get my Netgalley Challenge beaten. You guys understand.

I miss blogging all the time, but time just isn’t on my side right now. I’m still planning on my rename as well, but I decided to just wait and do that at the end of the year instead. With any luck, that will happen in December. Just have to get on a schedule and get things finished. But I wanted to let you all know what was going on so you don’t think I’ve abandoned my blog or anything. Hope everyone has had an amazing summer and that autumn is starting out right!

Right Kind of Wrong
by Chelsea Fine

Sometimes wrong can feel oh so right . . .

Jenna Lacombe needs complete control, whether it’s in the streets . . . or between the sheets. So when she sets out on a solo road trip to visit her family in New Orleans, she’s beyond annoyed that the infuriatingly sexy Jack Oliver wants to hitch a ride with her. Ever since they shared a wild night together last year, he’s been trying to strip away her defenses one by one. He claims he’s just coming along to keep her safe-but what’s not safe for her is prolonged exposure to the tattooed hottie.

Jack can’t get Jenna out from under his skin. She makes him feel alive again after his old life nearly destroyed him-and losing her is not an option. Now Jack’s troubles are catching up to him, and he’s forced to return to his hometown in Louisiana. But when his secrets put them both in harm’s way, Jenna will have to figure out how far she’s willing to let love in . . . and how much she already has.

About Chelsea Fine

Chelsea Fine

Chelsea lives in Phoenix, AZ where she spends most of her time writing young adult fiction, painting murals, and avoiding housework at all costs. Her obsessions include: superheroes, coffee, sleeping-in, and crazy socks. She lives with her husband and two children, who graciously tolerate her inability to resist teenage drama on TV and her complete lack of skill in the kitchen.


We are at the half way mark! We’ve actually already had someone finish their hardcore challenge! Can you believe that awesomeness?!

I am so totally late at getting this posted… it should’ve been up on the 1st. Between my pregnancy and my sister in town for a long visit, I am totally scatterbrained. Sorry!

I did nothing for this quarter. I haven’t read a single book. My pregnancy brain has me so unfocused that I couldn’t even start Chelsea Fine’s wonderful new book soon as I got it a week before release day courtesy of Netgalley. She is my favorite living author you guys… I read anything she puts out and it is killing me that I can’t get past the third chapter before deciding Doritos are laundry is more important. I’m in the 32nd week of my pregnancy and the nesting is kicking in. Part of me is ready for this kid to just be out of me, but more so, I really want to go past full term. Eight weeks left. I can do this. Hopefully I can start reading soon. I am so behind on my challenges!
