Sunday Post/BB&B #83 ~ Passing of a great man!


Another week has gone by and I am participating in the Caffeinated Book Reviewer Sunday Post, where we recap the past week on the blog, things to come, showcase books & giveaways plus much more.

I am also participating in BB&B, inspired by Talk Supe & Pop Culture Junkie, where we share with you the books that we have bought, borrowed, bagged (Won or Gifted) and more.


This week was uneventful until Friday morning when I received a call from my mom letting me know that my grandfather had past away. It was time, but we are all sad that he’s gone, yet relieved that he passed quietly. The picture below was taken at our Wedding March 2008. I’m glad my grandpa was able to join us on our special day. All the many adventures he shared with him, will live on in our memories. I usually don’t share picots of me, so you get a little treat in this news letter ^_^.

On a more fun note: I’ve been busy reading all the new e-ARC’s that arrived the week before. If you have not started the Eternal Mates series by Felicity Heaton it’s a must read! Book 1 Kissed by a Dark Prince is currently on sale for $.99c! Also if you love werewolves then you need to try out The Werewolves of Twin Moon Ranch by Anne Lowe that is another must read series! Both authors are fabulous writers & storytellers.  Besides all the fun reading. I started watching the TV show Firefly.

I made a new page on my top menu bar called SHOP!. If you look below it you will see Kindle eBook Deals, New Releases, & Books Reviewed on angels_gp. All books link to Amazon and any purchase you make through the links on our site help support the blog.

Wicked Waves

Wicked WavesSolsti Prophecy, #2
By Sharon Kay
Published January 21st 2014

Making daggers out of raindrops is only the tip of the iceberg for Brooke Bonham. As one of four women who can control the elements, her ability to manipulate water packs a deluge of potential. Eager to learn more, she’s frustrated at the precautions she must take to avoid the wrong kind of attention on Earth.

Kai’s duties as a Lash demon have kept him busy on Earth for nearly two hundred years. Fighting? He was born to do it. Females? They’re drawn to him. And Earth? The perfect place for him to avoid supernatural bounty hunters.

Though the two of them mix like oil and water, Kai senses that beneath Brooke’s frosty exterior hides a vortex of simmering passion. He’s determined to thaw his ice princess.

Forced to work together in the immortal realm, they track a rogue Lash demon at the helm of a widespread kidnapping operation. All too soon, Kai’s dark past catches up to them. Time runs out as a second enemy, bent on revenge, vows to stop at nothing short of Brooke’s enslavement and Kai’s death. As they and their foes stalk each other in a demonic game of cat-and-mouse, will her evolving skills and their fledgling bond be enough to save them?

  1. What a lovely picture, I am so sorry for your loss.

    I love Firefly, it is one of my favourite shows ever, the film Serenity that follows it is also brilliant!
    Heather @ Random Redheaded Ramblings recently posted…REVIEW – Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay KristoffMy Profile

    • Thank you Heather. I’ve just started Firefly and am enjoying it. I did not know their was a film, so I will have to check that out.

      Have a good week and happy reading!

  2. Sorry to hear about your grandfather and that picture at your wedding is lovely.

    I hope you enjoy Firefly. It’s a show I very much enjoyed (and the subsequent movie, Serenity!).

    • Kimba, thank you. The SHOP page was not my idea. I saw it on Herding Cats & Burning Soup blog and thought what a great idea, so I implemented it on my blog. HCBS has some great blogger posts and ideas, which help make blogging so much easier.

      Have a great week and happy reading!

  5. My thoughts are with you and your family. It’s hard to lose someone even when you you think you are prepared. Such a lovely photo.

    • Thank you Laura. He held in a lot longer then anyone thought, but now he is at peace. Everyone is dealing with it in their own way. I wanted to share a special moment in my life and also in his.

      Have a great week and happy reading!
