Can't Wait Wednesday #36/ Midweek Stuff


 So here's a midweek round up of what I'm reading watching, etc. Plus Can't Wait Wednesday, hosted by Wishful endings. So sit back, raise a cuppa, and see what's new! And share what you're up to.  

This week my Can't Wait pick is Polaris Rising. I saw this over at Tammy's blog Books, Bones and Buffy and then went and read an excerpt on the author site. Sounds awesome! Can't wait for this one.

  3. How could you go wrong with a space princess and an outlaw soldier? That sounds like the makings of something good.

  6. I really like the covers of both your can-wait book and the book you're reading. I'm going to take a look at them. I also need to watch your videos...especially Impulse since I haven't read anything about that.

  10. Polaris Rising definitely sounds like it's worth a read! I read Tara Altebrando's The Leaving after I met the author at an event, and it was really interesting, if a little oddly set up and paced. I'll be interested to hear how The Opposite of Here is!

    1. I am really curious how Opposite is going to turn out (I'm not very far in) and I haven't read any of her previous books, so she's a totally new author to me! I have high hopes!

  23. Polaris Rising looks like it could be really good! And thanks for putting The Opposite of Here on my radar, I'm always looking for new horror/mystery/thrillers set aboard cruise ships!
