Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Hi Gina,

You have a great haul this week and I quite like the sound of 'Grave Consequences', although I am not sure that I would read all the books this author has written.

You sound about as bad as me at searching out a 'freebie' or a bargain and just having to have it ... I am seriously trying to be good and only take from NetGalley, the books which I know I would enjoy and are from my favourite genres ... I just know that I am never going to live long enough to read all the physical books I own, let alone the often not counted download 'extras'!!

Thanks for hosting this month and I hope that you enjoy all the books you read this week.

Yvonne

Thanks for being an awesome MM host! You picked up some great looking books. I loved Between Shades of Gray, and have heard good things about A Tale Dark & Grimm. Enjoy :)

Nice variety! The Christmas book looks cute.

I've heard great things about Between Shades of Gray. And actually read an article last year about how the author was getting tons of hype just because it was so close in name to 50 Shades. Supposedly she had people show up to her readings confused because it wasn't the book they expected. Or had parents complain about their kids reading her book, again not realizing the different. And thanks for hosting this month!

Enjoy all your books!

Laura Fabiani said...

I've been wanting to read Between Shades of Gray ever since I saw a clip of the author talking about this book that brought me to tears. Enjoy your new books!

Martha Eskuchen said...

Between Shades of Gray is so good! Be sure to have a box of tissues handy when you read it.

Elizabeth said...

I haven't heard of any of these books, but A Tale Dark & Grimm looks like a good Halloween Month book.

ENJOY all your books, and thanks for being this month's host.
