Happy Friday!! Guess what time of year it is. Llama time!!! Yes, that’s right, this time last year I was molested by a crazy-ass llama at a petting zoo at a local pumpkin patch. I told my bloggy friends about it and the rest is llama history.
Well, guess what. I volunteered to chaparone my daughter’s preschool pumpkin patch field trip and I’m going back. *slips into superhero gear* I’m going to face down the llama. If I’m not too scared I’ll get pics, but I’ll be honest, I’m not sure if I can get past the gate. That llama is a scary beast and despite the fact that I’ve developed a strange affection for llamas in general, I’m still holding a grudge against this particular llama.
Apparently there is a Llama Law. If only I’d had this sign, the whole ugly “incident” would have never happened. I would have know better than to trust an effing llama.
So I totally missed the boat and forgot to include this in last week’s Random Friday post. Have you all checked out USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog? I think it’s so awesome that the romance genre is getting some USA Today love. Several authors and bloggers are contributing including Mandi from Smexy Books and Lea from Closet Reader.
So since I’m getting a new Kindle Fire in November, I’m not upgrading my iPhone to the new 4S. 🙁 But that’s ok because honestly I’m more excited about the Kindle. But, I admit to being a teeny tiny bit jealous of my hubby who is upgrading. *eye-twitch*
I’ve placated myself with the new iOS and a new Incase cover. It’ll do. 🙂 I chose the shiniest case I could find. Pink and shiny and I lurve it. With the new iOS and the new case I have to admit my phone feels kinda new. 🙂
And…speaking of the new Kindle Fire that is coming my way this November (did I mention I’m excited?), I’ve been looking at covers for my new pretty. So far, I’m leaning toward the Marware Eco-Vue:
What appeals to me most about the Marware covers is the hand strap. I really like that. The only thing holding me back is the lack of selection on color. I still have time so I’m hoping they’ll come up with something pretty to dress my Kindle up in.

So is everyone excited about Elizabeth Hoyt’s new release, SCANDALOUS DESIRES? I am. I love the the Maiden Lane series and I have this book on my shelf calling out my name. I also love this book trailer:
Elizabeth and her sister created this and dammit, it’s funny. Keep listening when it’s over.
What I just read: Stay The Night by Scarlett Parrish. Hero was a little different, but I came to love him. Review to come.
What I’m going to read: Ann Agurrie tweeted: If you like
@courtneymilan‘s books, try Jenny Brown. I really loved her debut Lord Lightning So guess I’m going to be trying out Jenny Brown’s Lord Lightening.
How about you? What are you reading? Any “if you like xxxxx then you should try xxxxx” recommendations?
That’s it for me folks! Have a great weekend!
