I replied on Facebook, but I'll post here, too. I'm totally in! I'm feeling kindof wishy washy on what book to read next, so I could use a reason to push. Will there be a theme?

Theme - Romance, Hearts in the title, Lovebirds, anything that makes you think of Valentines :kiss:

I feel so silly :silly: I was so excited about this that I honestly thought it started on Monday (I guess because Monday here this week is actually a STAT holiday? It's "Family Day.") I was so worried I had missed the start when I realised I'd spent most of the day out playing with my kids, and then had to nap until work time.

At least I still have some time to decide what I'm going to read. I have a good idea of what it'll be, though I suspect I won't have anything particularly romance-y.

I don't have anything real romance-y either. This month, I am trying to read books from my series I follow and none of those are romances :huh: But then anything that reminds you of Valentines or Sweethearts count - candy, flowers, hearts, the colors red and pink, etc.

I'm going to start Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2) for the RAT. It's hopeless to think I'll finish it, but it's a series that has been on my TBR for SOOOOO LONG it's about time I made some forward progress.
I have a kindle book on the go that I'm struggling to get through (a leftover pick-it-for-me from September, I think, "When God Was a Rabbit"), a paper book I am excited to read but hard to get fit in (my birthday gift: The Marrow Thieves), and an audio on my phone for travelling (SoUE #13 "The End"), as well.

I will probably finish listening to "Homecoming Masquerade" today. I will continue reading "Grand Theft Retro". I will probably finish reading "Maze Runner" (Book 1) during this RAT and will start "Scorch Trials (Book 2), but not finish it.

Amazon no longer shows the option for saving the photograph link (could be the new computer) and if I copy from GoodReads, it shows up here as an "x". I've gone back to using PhotoBucket, which is a pain because of all the stupid ads. Does anyone have any other (easy) way to save bookcovers?

I finished "Homecoming Masquerade". There is nothing I hate more than a book that is relatively good that never really finishes this portion of the story therefore making you purchase the next book to get the end of this part. It smacks of amature writing. A good series will give the story to you in full portion rather than a big cliffhanger. I don't know if I'll continue the series or not. Right now, I'm just mad :mad:

I have started the 16th book in the Pendergast series by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. See, I will read a series if it is done correctly.

I right click on the picture on goodreads and copy image location, then copy that into the image button here. That's from Mozilla/Firefox I know the other platforms have a similar thing but it might be called something else.

These are what I'm working onL
