I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

The Final Note by Kevin Alan Milne

Ethan never expected to meet the love of his life on a trolley near an artistic waste incinerator in Vienna, Austria, but that's what happened. Flat broke, finishing up a Master's thesis at the University of fMusic and Performing Arts, he is forced to play his guitar to ear enough money to live on until he returns to the states. After listening to one of his imprmptu concerts, Anna leaves a note instead of a tip between the strings of his guitar, and Ethan discovers that love, not Brahms, is the sweetest music. On their wedding day, along with "love, honor, and cherish," Ethan promises to write a song especially for her.

Neither of them are quite prepared for the music to stop and the nails on the chalkboard to commence when life suddenly intrudes on the idyllic world....When a final, unthinkable calamity happens, Ethan is devastated. Is it too late to finish the love song he began for his wife on the their wedding day? In this take of lose and heartbreak, love and forgiveness, Ethan is about to discover that the final note has yet to be written.

Wild Invitation by Nalini Singh
A Psy-Changeling collection, published 2013

Summer Brides anthology

purchased for the Fool's Gold story

Scales of Justice by Daniel Hood
book 5 in the Fanuilh series

A wizard was found dead with a smile fixed firm across his face so wide, so hideous--it could only be the work of magic! Liam Rhenford and his faithful dragon familiar have been called to root out the source of the spell. But there's more to this case than meets the eye.

I haven't received any review books, won any contests or received any books as a gift. I have added several to my ereader, most were even free.

added to my ereader: (kindle app, html, etc.) ~I find out about free/discounted ebooks at amazon mostly from Pixel of Ink. I do go through the Top 100 at amazon once in a while. I'm getting better at pinning my new ebooks, 2013's books and 2014's books
