Turn Around Tuesday...

I bet you are wondering why am I calling Tuesday "Turn Around" day...
Well, let me start off by saying that my work computer is as slow as molasses in the winter time!!! And if I even try to get online, it takes F-R-E-A-K-I-N-G F-O-R-E-V-E-R to upload just the home page... So, getting online to see what you guys are up too - is impossible. Then I feel like a smuck, because when I get home, I try to go visit everyone's page... I know sometimes you can't be Superwoman and that pisses me off!!!! Anyway... I feel like I miss you guys so much. Then I am trying to be the good girl and go to bed within a decent hour... (Yea, tell that to the books that are screaming at me to read them!!) So, with all of that... I am trying!!! I have dropped by some of your place's and have to admit that I am little jealous!!!

Won't bored you with all the details from the weekend... but I will share with you... My trip to Borders and Wal-Mart this past Saturday... I could not resist the 5th free book!!! And this is what I walked away with....

This book was actually in the back of one of Lord of the Satyr's Brothers... The book sounded absolutely delicious!!! Could you have resisted... Then for some reason, the next books... I noticed a trend... Ms. Lori Foster's name. I have not read anything by her yet.. I do have one book that I have been trying to get too... but I found these books to hot to resist!!!! Wouldn't you agree....

Then of course when I saw this... I immediately thought of my ladies at Lust in Time!!! How could I have passed this up!!!!
Then I went to Wal-Mart and found these two little gems... And what can I say, I am being sucked into the historcial world... Thanks to Barbara over at Happliy Ever After!

Then I won this precious little book over at Bitten By Books!

Now, if you made it this far with me... I have to tell you that... This is my 100th post!!!! YAYAYAY for me!!! And I have a few new friends to add to that!!
With all of that... Stay tune to my next post for a little give away... I promise to try to make it fun....


  1. Hey Cecile! You got a nice bunch of books :). Tortured is on the shelves where you are? I wonder if they are here too. I just posted my review for it this morning. Can't wait to read your thoughts when you get to it!

  2. I can't wait for Tortured :) And What Happens in London was a favorite of mine so far this year. I swear I want to see a photo of your bookshelves!! Maybe we all should do it one day.

  3. Hey Cecile!!

    Nice haul girl.. You always do so well out on these unplanned book buying sprees...

    Don't worry about the blogging girl! When you get to it, you get to it. Sometimes you need a break - don't kill yourself... :)

    Congratulations on post #100 that is really exciting.

    Have a wonderful day Cecile!

  4. Wow, that's quite a haul! Good for you.

    I know what you mean about the computer thing. I just can't visit everyone and it's frustrating but you can only do so much, right?

    Take care, and catch ya later...

  5. Congrats on #100!! Looks like you're celebrating with books, hmm? I'm so not surprised. ;)

  6. There is a little secret I want to share with you... while this is my 100th post... Since I was a such a smuck and forgot... I am having a blow-out for my 101th post... makes sure to be here for that one!!! Wouldn't want you missing that one... I have a special guest coming to my place!!!!!!

    ~ Amy C
    Hey Amy! Thank you very much. I was very shocked to see Tortured on the shelf. That is why I hurried and picked it up!!!
    Know that I have not forgot about you... I read your post from the other day.... your venting day.... and my heart went out to you!!! Believe me, I understand! Hopefully when I get home this afternoon, I will be by your place ~ asap! I hope you have a great day!

    ~ Mandi!
    Girl, my bookshelves.... they seem to be multipling all on their own!!! Yea, I know it does not help if I continue to buy books, but I swear the beg to be brought home - and what is a girl to do!!

    ~ Lea!!
    Thanks! I find myself with my notebook in hand when I go to Borders... but for some reason, i walk out with something completely not on the list!! Which means another trip! LOL!!I hope you have a great day Lea!

    ~ Stacy
    Thanks honey! I am trying, I promise, to make it to everyones.... but when I look at the clock... I wonder where the heck did time go!

    ~ Chris!
    Hey there honey!!! How are my babies doing? I haven't been over to see... I am sorry. Thanks on the congrats... make sure you stay tune.... I have a couple of surprises for you all!!!!

  7. *giggles* 101 is much better than 100 anyway!!

  8. Hi Cecile,
    Oh I know about slow computers, to write one comment takes an hour. But we all do understand.

    Great books! I would sure love to read the Julia Quinn one

  9. Hi Cecile!!!

    Congrats on 100 posts!! :)

    You got lots of awesome books.......I have a couple of them and added the ones I don't to the list, I'm going shopping today! :)

  10. Hey Cecile...

    I thought hubby had handcuff the credit card and the notebook onto his person....

    what did you do - sweet talk him and made a dash off to Borders for this great stash......

    Lots of cool reading material...

    you enjoy...


  11. Hi Cecile!

    Great bunch of books, I have a few of those myself. Tortured looks great, I'll be checking it out myself too. Amy has a great review of it up on her blog.

    Congrats of the 100 post!


    Dottie :)

  12. I just finished Prey yesterday. Wow, that was damn good book. None stop action. Books 3 & 4 trump the first two books by a long shot. Hope you enjoy it. :)

    I have Amanda McIntyre on my list too.

  13. Happy 100th post Cecile! Loved your book haul....I was just remembering that today is Tuesday...new books come out today. I trip to Borders might be in order! I've not read any Lori Foster so I look forward to hearing what you think!

  14. Congrats on the milestone post! And let us know what you think of the Julia Quinn book. Everyone seems to love it but I disliked the first half. However, I vastly enjoyed the second half.

  15. congrats on the 100th post

    Prey is an awesome book,I read it in one sitting.Never heard of the other books,but they look good. :)

  16. Congrats on your 100th post Cecile!! Woot!

    And girl, what a book haul! I'm madly jealous over here.

    I hope that despite the slow internet connection that your new job is going well.

    (((hugs))) VFG

  17. Congrats on #100! I loved Prey - great action and surprising twists. I bought Sleepless in Scotland today too :) and am reading my first Julia Quinn novel and so far loving it.

  18. Tortured is out already?! Wow!

    Nice stack of books, btw!!

  19. ~Mandi~
    Well, I figured I needed to be different from everyone else!!! So, my next post... make sure you are here for it!!!

    Ugh, don't you just hate slow computers!!! Especially at work. Now, I am not just saying that because I can not get online, but it runs that slow while I am working!!! So, I have to do allll my commenting when I get home in between... "what you cooking for supper, Mom I need this, Do I have a clean uniform for work tomorrow, when is supper going to be ready, the dogs had an accident that i am not cleaning, phone ringing, dishes"... yea... SUPERWOMAN!!

    Oh Blanche, so jealous of you going on vacation to the beach!!!! I promise I won't be any trouble in the suitcase! Oh, must found out what Blanche bought today!!!

    ~Erotic Horizon~
    Hey there honey!!! Miss you! Yea, I batted my long eyelashes and put on a sexy dress (yea right, lmao) and he caved in!!! LOL!!! I stole it back from him!!!

    ~My Blog 2.0 (Dottie)~
    Hey honey! Thanks! Yea, I could not pass up Tortured... since I knew it was not out yet!!! I was so excited, I was really doing the happy dance in the store... I think I kinda freaked out a couple of people... but they just don't understand! I skimmed Amy's review... I am hoping to go there and really READ it once I am done with it!!!

    Hey there hon! Oh, I have to collect the other books of Prey's series soon... Damn good you say... I will be needing to set up the search!! Thanks for the heads up on that!

    ~Pelehini aka Lisa~
    Thank you so very much ~ for both the kind words and the congrats! Oh, new books come out today... I must go see what's coming... for this weekend's trip!

    Thanks!!! Hope all has been well with you! Oh, I will definitely let you know about the Julia Quinn book. I have heard great things about her and this book, so I can not wait to start reading it!!!
    It will be interesting to see how our thoughts go!

    Hi there!! I am glad that you came, and hope that you will stick around... Thank you!
    Thank you for letting me know that you liked Prey as well. I have an OCD thing with reading books out of order, so now, I am on the hunt for the other books! I hope you stick around and have fun with me!!!

    Hey there honey!!! Thank you!!! We will have a big splash on my 101th!!!
    A thank you for the encouragment for new job... yes, despite the slow internet and slow hard drive... a promise of a new one before year end... The new job is going great!!!

    Thank you! I can not believe it is 100 post already though! Time flies! I can't wait to start readign some of the books I bought this weekend. From the reviews I have read at everyone's place, I am in for a big treat for all of them!!!

    I hope you are feeling better my dear!!! Summer bug you caught ~ you need to let him go!!!
    Yes, I saw it with my own eyes... that is why I picked it up ~Tortured~ quickly!! I did not want to go back and it not be there for me =(

  20. Yea!!! Congrats on the 100th post. Know what you mean bout being out of the loop and tied to the work thing. I'm out in the desert on a two week tour of rocks and internet is not always the most accessible. Hope to get home soon but heh, at least it's cooler out here :-)


I want to thank you for stopping by my place... I hope to see you again!!
I hope you enjoy my little bloggie home as much as I do!
With hugs, love and smiles... Cecile
