You better watch out-Sexy Santas & Elves are invading my blog

I’ve been a very good girl this year.  At least up until today.  Maybe I just have too much Christmas Spirit.

London Library Bars- Yeah!

Bar library london

Found on BuzzFeed  16 Library Bars in London

Now this is my idea of a fun way to drink my wine.  Usually I favor Pinot Grigio but in these settings I may have to go with a Pinot Noir or Merlot or even two fingers of a single malt. completely ensconced in my book I may not even notice the famous author sitting by the fire.

Reblog from BookRiot.Com

This is a reblog from BookRiot.com that I think will at a minimum put a smile on your face but more than likely have you rolling on the floor holding your gut. Enjoy!

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie: 69 Book Titles that Double as Terrible Sex Advice

Someone pumped laughing gas into the Riot headquarters. That’s the only explanation for this post.

Deet’s Year End Rec’s for Romance Lovers

It is that time of the year when I usually tell you about my favorite books of the year but this year there were at least 45!!!  If you go to my header up above and click on “Deet’s Favorite Reads of…” you will see the entire list.  You can then go to the search box and find the reviews for them.

Goodreads has done a fabulous job of putting together my stats and showing the book covers for the ones that I read.  This is really fun to look at so I encourage you to take a look.  You will get some good recommendations here, all on one page.

https://www.goodreads.com/user/year_in_books/2015/3203610?utm_source=fb&fb_ref=Default

 I did fall in love with some stunning book covers too. Here are a few of my favorites:

The curiosity Keeper

This cover just shouts Regency Era. I love it.

The Art of Sinning 3

I don’t know who this model is, but isn’t that the most sinful look you’ve ever seen?

The Daring Exploits of a Runaway HeiressI love this one for the color, my favorite.

The Legend of Lyon Redmond

Besides loving this book and series, this cover gets my vote for the book cover that relates most to the story and it’s pretty.

Reason to wed

Okay this one was a terrific, 5-star book with the worst cover ever!!!

  • Containers for individual bananas
  • Rigid plastic construction
  • Lightweight and portable
  • Collapsible midsection

At my house we pretend to be Irish every March 17th.  This is how we pretended this year. YUM!

I started early in the afternoon making Irish Soda Bread.

Bubble, bubble certainly no trouble. Corned Beef, cabbage, red potatoes, carrots.

Tender and lean sliced like a dream.

All the preparation came to a close at dinner time.
