A day off - but not in paradise.

As a resident of Southwestern Ontario you get used to snow in the winter. So when you go almost the whole winter with no snow, you become complacent and spoiled. Why does Mother Nature wait until almost the end of February to deliver a wintery blast of the white stuff, when winter should be ending as spring is just around the corner? Because she's a fickle bitch and she can!

I had today off from work and it's been planned for awhile, but either my BFF Carm forgot or I didn't remember to remind her that I wasn't coming into work today. Being the good friend she is, she called me at 6:15am this morning and woke me up to advise me the roads were bad and to be careful driving in....ummmmm thanks, but I'm not coming into work today. I've got a PPD.

So I had lots of big plans today. Cook, clean, organize, read, get caught up on shows on the PVR, watch the Olympics..boy was I delusional!

What did I do you ask? Well I worked on this blog - a lot! I bought a ticket for the $50 million Lotto Max draw and I did watch some of the Olympics and write one book review(did I mention I like to read?).

I do consider myself to enjoy a wide variety of reading genres. I do have my favorites with my #1 favorite being romantic suspense, closely followed by contemporary and then mystery/thriller. I do enjoy the occasional paranormal romance and have my favorite authors who write that genre. I would purchase their books even if they wrote a cookbook (not really I'm just fooling with you).

I must admit I recently read 2 Harlequin Super Romances and found them both to be exceptionally enjoyable reads. Nothing too deep or heavy and little to no sex or funny business, which was good for a change. I would really recommend both of them.

So day one of my three day weekend is nearing an end and hopefully tomorrow I'll get started on that "to-do" list (but don't hold your breath).

Here's my lastest review of Carolyn McSparren's Bachelor Cop.

I can't resist a blog about books. You mentioned Super Romance... have you ever read Molly O'Keefe? Her books are so good.

I'm looking forward to your posts about books or tv shows or anything else :)
I used to read a lot of Harlequins although I have yet to read my first Super Romance. I have one by Sarah Mayberry on the shelves. I love her Harlequin Blaze novels, those are really good!
Does Supernatural happen to be one of your favorite tv shows?

Janna: Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I watch ALOT of TV. I really like reality TV, but do watch drama, comedy and daytime talk shows. Unfortunately I only watched Suernatural the 1st season it was on. I'm a big chicken and it's kind of scary for me to watch lol!

I look forward to more of your visits and talking to you in the future.

Thanks for visiting. I appreciate the comments. I will definitely be checking out more of Mcsparren's work as that was the 1st book I have read by her. You are the 2nd person to recommend O'Keefe as well so I will be looking into her as well.
