I found myself with a rare bit of free time today and made some updates to the sidebar. I hope you enjoy the new definitions of kink and hotness levels as well as a long list of books we just can't wait to read!
This has been a busy and exciting week for the women of DGGB. Kay and I are getting ready to attend our very first RT Conference!! That's right, we're heading to Kansas City with another book club friend and we're going to pop our conference cherries. I'm a planner and I've spent a lot of time pouring over schedules and figuring out how I can possibly to make it to every presentation and event I want to. I made a plan I was happy with until I realized it doesn't include any meals. I'm working on that.
Depending on the wifi status at the hotel, I may attempt a few RT posts while we're there. I'm going to try to take lots of pictures, and I have a list of authors I'm looking forward to stalking. Kay and I are also attending a preRT Conference with Sarah from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books and Jane from Dear Author to try to pick up some blogging tips to make this a more fun place to visit.
Kate's not attending RT, but she's in a very happy place right now. She started reading Black Dagger Brotherhood a few weeks ago and has been making her way through them in between review books for the blog. She's almost done with Phury's book (and she likes it!) It's been so fun texting back in forth with her and hearing her theories for things as she reads through them. She's going to get me a list of favorite authors so I can look for swag/souvenirs for her at RT.
And then there's Kay's challenge. Kay and I live in neighboring towns and we're in a book club together. It's been a while since we were both able to attend book club on the same night, but it happened last week. We were having a grand old time when Kay issued a challenge to me. I have a hard time stepping back from a challenge and I suspect she knows that. So, I've been challenged to finish reading Lorelei James' Rough Riders series. I've read the first few books and I liked them, but got distracted with other stuff. Kay swears I stopped just when it was getting good and she wants me to finish so she and Kate have another person to discuss the books with. Fine. I'll read them, but she's agreed to read books of my choice in exchange. Now I'm trying to decide what to make her read. She's unlikely to pick up a dragon book on her own, so I'm thinking of forcing one on her.
I'm the slowest reader of the three of us Dirty Girls. I've got a few books queued up on my TBR pile. I JUST started Tempting Cameron by Karen Erickson. I've got Stranded with a Billionaire by Jessica Clare, A Prior Engagement by Karina Bliss, The Rebound Girl by Tamara Morgan, and It Had To Be You by Jill Shalvis on deck. Now I just need to find time to read. Maybe while I'm eating at RT????
