30DaysOfThanks
Hi Y’all! It is November and I am bringing back #30DaysOfThanks for Year 3 aka #30DaysOfThanks2014. I had so much fun doing this last 2 years that I thought I would recycle the program again this year.

 

Book: Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews

Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews

This was a rare 5 for me! I have read it twice in less than a month 🙂

Goodreads | Library Thing

Story: Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.

Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.

Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.

Blogger: Fantasy Is More Fun

This year Fantasy is More Fun & Because Reading are doing a Month of Giving Thanks giving you a chance to participate. You should take them up on the opportunity!

 

NOTE: This year I switched it up a bit for the first 12 days: I will highlight one book from 2014 that really stuck with me (each book scored a 4.75 or 5 from me), one narrator that landed on my must listen list, and one blogger that I am thankful for! For days 13 to 30 I will highlight either 2 bloggers and 1 narrator OR 2 narrators and 1 blogger. These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love. In fact this year in both the narrator and blogger categories I had way over 30 (Yet with books I only had 12 “new to me this year” reads that ranked above a 4.75).  Narrowing narrators/bloggers down broke my heart so I am changing the format a bit! Hopefully, I can squeeze in everyone I want too!

      OH it was delightful on audio! It took a bit for me to get “Mad Rogan” and his voice situated in my head (I read the book first which sometimes lends to me having an “idea” of what they sound like) but Renee really sold me on her take of him!

    Thank you!!!! I’m beaming! What a way to begin my “extra hour” in bed on Sunday Morning! I feel so lucky to be able to narrate the Ilona Andrews titles. What an honor it is to read such wildly creative, witty, and romantically intense books. They really are in a category of their own.

    Awww so true about Berls, she’s great :D. Also great to know about the audio version of Burn for Me. I’ve read the first few pages and not got back to it which makes me sad, but maybe the audiobook will be the way to go instead!

    Aww 🙂 I *heart* you too! Wow – 5 stars from you means A LOT and I think my jaw is still on the floor that you read it twice! It was already on my TBR, but I’ve bumped it up. I haven’t read Kate Daniels yet, though. I know they aren’t related series, but would you start with Kate or is this one better?

    I love that you’re including narrators! I don’t think I know enough YET, but next year I’ll probably be all over that LOL

    One author I want to read but haven’t yet but I am hoping too one day and maybe I’ll do it in audio.

    I adore Berls. I was so happy she came in contact with me about COYER because not only because we are cohosts but I found an amazing friend! She has just a big and wonderful heart! I *heart* her too 🙂
