Life Lately:
I've been blogging like crazy lately and went a little post happy this week and have a lot scheduled for next week too.  I guess I probably could have spaced it all out a little better..oops!  I've been brainstorming some new post ideas and went a little crazy.  I actually have posts scheduled to the middle of March!  I like to schedule in advance because I feel like it gives me more time to comment on blogs.  I've also been trying to find some new blogs too.  I did a lot of blog stuff this week.

How was everyone's Valentine's Day?!  Mine was nice.  My husband surprised me with chocolate covered strawberries and white roses.  We are actually getting a date day tonight.  It's been a while since we've gotten to go out, just me and him without our little one, so I'm excited.  Speaking of our "little one", her birthday is Sunday and we are going out to celebrate at Chuck E. Cheese!

  1. I keep planning to get ahead but it doesn't seem to be happening so I'm blogging on the hoof at the moment and not fitting everything in! Need to put some effort in this weekend I think! On the bright side, I'm still getting good reading done and catching up on last years book reviews so I'm pleased with that. Have a good reading week!

    1. That's great! I feel like I've been falling behind with the books on my TBR list/backlist, so I'm going to try to focus on those more in March. I've gotten ahead with reading my ARCs so I should be able to tackle the others...I hope! lol Hope you have a great reading week too!

    1. Thanks! I feel a lot less stressed out when I have things scheduled in advance, and it makes it a bit easier to get more reading done. I'm excited about Trusting You and Other Lie. It sounds really good. Everyone is always raving about Anna so when I saw it on sale I had to grab it. Hope you have a great week too!

    1. Thanks! Trusting You and Other Lies sounded really good. I'm not familiar with the author, but who knows! Everyone is always raving about Anna and the French Kiss so when I saw it on sale I had to scoop it up and see for myself.

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!

  7. Aww! Birthday time! It was my girl's birthday on Sunday last week!

    Glad you had such an awesome Valentine's and your hubby manages to surprise you sometimes. It's always so nice isn't it!?

    Well done on being so organised with your blogging! Oh my! Maybe I'll catch up enough to get ahead one day 😂

    I want to read The Shadow Queen so can't wait to hear what you make of it. Have a wonderful week!

    1. My husband is definitely a romantic. He's great with surprises. He's the best <3

      Can't believe my little girl is four already! Where has the time gone?! She's still only a year old in my head. lol

      Hopefully the being ahead trend will continue for me. It's a lot less stressful and gives me more time to visit other blogs.

      I'm excited to read The Shadow Queen because so many people seem like they enjoyed and I want to read the second book in the series because it sounds really good. lol!

      Hope you have a great week!

  8. It's nice to be ahead and looking forward to your movies post too- I always like reading the book before the movie if possible.

    Trusting You and Other Lies- love that title!

    1. Me too! I feel like it would ruin the book if I saw the movie first I like the surprise of reading it and building the story in my head. If that makes any sense. lol!

      I've never heard of the author that wrote Trusting You and Other Lies, but it sounded good so I'm giving it a shot. The cover is super cute too.

      Hope you have a great week!

  9. Great job getting ahead! I wish I could do that. I'm lucky if I get something up the morning it's supposed to go up!

    I hope you enjoy your new books.

    1. LOL I've definitely done that and I'm sure I will still do that sometimes too. I just find myself being less stressed out when I have things planned in advance. And I guess I've been super motivated and inspired lately which comes in phases too, I think. lol! We'll see how long it lasts.

      Hope you have a great week, and thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thank you so much! I've never read anything by Nicole Williams but the cover and the synopsis hooked me so I'm excited about it. I read an excerpt from Accidentally on Purpose and now I can't wait to read it. Sounds like it's going to be a really good one.

      I hope you have a great week too!

  12. I love it when I have stuff scheduled in advance, because that helps me both have the time to comment on other blogs, and leave my brain open for new ideas ;)
    It sounds like your V-day was nice, and I hope your date last night was awesome, too, Julie!
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  13. Oh I enjoyed Accidentally on Purpose and Fire in You! But I think I am the only person on the planet who didn't like Anna and the french kiss. I gave up on it about 25% in. It just didn't work for me.
    Sounds like a wonderful Valentine's day. Enjoy your little one's birthday party :) 🎉

    1. So glad to hear that you loved both of those books. I read an excerpt for Accidentally on Purpose and it sounds like it's going to be a really good on. I'm really excited about Fire in You too. I've been told by so many people that I needed to give Anna a try, so we'll see how it goes. I've had a few books that everyone loved and I didn't like too lol! I always feel like an outcast writing the review. haha! Valentine's Day, date day, and my daughter's b-day all went really well, thanks so much! It was a really great weekend.

      Hope you have a great week!

    1. I had a lot of people recommend Anna to me, so I figured I would give it a shot. We'll see how it goes! lol. It was really cheap on sale so I figured, why not. I go through moods with scheduling blog posts. Sometimes I'm really motivated and other times I am struggling to get one written in time. lol! And yes, my daughter's b-day was the 19th. Happy birthday to your mom too!

      Hope you have a great week, thanks for stopping by!

  15. No Valentine's Day celebrations for me as I'm single, but that's okay.

    And well done on the blogging. I've been a little the opposite I think.

    1. I've had my share of no valentine's celebration, so my girls and I would get together for a Galentine's Day celebration....or I'd volunteer to work that day. haha!

      I go through creative spurts with my scheduling blog posts. Sometimes I'm struggling to get anything written at all. lol

      Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great week!
