Cheers My Dears!

Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to all those who left a comment on my last post, its lovely to know you care. I was on a real downer and feeling sorry for myself. My Eeyore day turned into a few Eeyore days, with the arrival of a horrible head cold blecchhh. Thankfully the past day or so I'm feeling much better. Still a bit congested but on the road back to normal. (Not that you can really call me normal :o) on a different note I spotted this handmade bag on e-bay last week so I thought I'd bid and what do you know I was the highest bidder so this little beauty now belongs to me. I love the CK Rosali print so pretty.
I've turned into a little bookworm this past week. Due to the feeling poorly and not wanting to do anything I just had plenty of rest with a book or three. As you all probably know I'm a huge Vampire fan, I so adored the Twilight saga and desperately wanted more. I then discovered the (House of Night Novels). I've just finished hunted which is book 5 with 2 more to go. They are a great read, nice and fast paced which I like, they are a little on the young side, but enjoyable nevertheless. I then discovered A Hunger Like No Other ), by Kresley Cole which was also brilliant. I finished this a while ago but recently got myself book 2 in the series No Rest for the Wicked . This was even better than the first book. Much more grown up. Lots of hot vampire and Valkyrie action, and steamy sex scenes. I think I would go as far to say that paranormal romance is now my favourite type of book! I can't wait to read the next book in the series. In fact I'm hoping it will be delivered today, along with the next two after that. The other book I've read this week is In Her Bed (The Dragons of Challon, Book 2). This was another discovery I found on amazon. This time an historical romance but again a great fast paced read with lots of steamy scenes. I do hope my books turn up today!! If you know of any other books you'd like to recommend please leave a comment, and let me know.

Well that's enough babbling from me.

Lovely bag, Pixie! Gorgous! I like the Sookie Stackhouse novels but didn't get any further than that. I'm sorry I didn't comment on your last post but have been unwell and bleh myself. I'm glad that you're feeling better now. Here's to Tilda picking me up! xxx

Glad to hear you are feeling better!! Now tell me - are the new books scary??? Can't read or watch scary!! But they look good, seeing as I am still in Twilight obsession mode!!

Hi Pixie,

Yeah I am a huge fan of the Vampire books, films and programmes! Have you read any of the Anne Rice ones? Not very fast paced in places but very well written. There was a load of books someone lent me last year about a Vampire slayer (not Buffy!lol) and she meets all sorts of monsters etc on her journey but I have forgotten what the series was called. That gets a bit raunchy too.

Glad to hear you are feeling better, cold are the worst arent they? We are dealing with hiding chickenpox this week!?

Take care

Have you read the true blood series yet? If not, they're well worth a look! I am also into vampires. Have read a few of kresley coles books.

Glad you're feeling better now, hun. I have to admit to being a little intrigued by your books, maybe that's what I need to give me a boost! I feel the need to a day in bed with a good book, just cos I feel like it!!!

A Certain Slant of Light is a very good read. Not steamy but I totally adored it and I thought the writing was just so much better than Twilight!!! said...

What a fab bag Pixie! I love reading too, and really must get into a darn good book soon! Suzie x

I'm sorry to hear you've had a bad cold, but glad that you had time to read your fave books. I've just finished reading the Harry Potter books and LOVED them! Your new bag is so gorge! You can't beat the CK rosali pattern. It just seems to make me smile. Big hugs, and hope you feel tip top very soon. Em xxxx

Thanks for the comment about Jessie, she was a lovely little girlie and would have approved of that gorgeous CK bag very much :) I love the same kind of books you do and my other half bought me the true blood set so I will let you know how they are. Hope you're having a lovely bank holiday, Lizzyloolaa xxx
