249882361Professionally edited by Leslie Mitchell at G2 Freelance Editing and rereleased 2/12/14.

Traumatized by her past, and struggling to move on from it, Sera has spent the past three years of college hiding herself from the world and content to stay that way. A chance encounter with Liam shatters her sheltered world, leaving her stunned and shaken by the strange feelings and emotions he arises in her, feelings she never thought she would experience and that frighten her in their intensity. Harboring a dark and deadly secret of his own, Liam knows that he should stay away from Sera; that he will only bring her more hurt, but he is irresistibly drawn to her and unable to deny himself the pleasure that only she can bring to him. But when their pasts collide with their present, and Liam’s true nature is revealed, will their love for each other be enough, or will they be torn apart forever?

*Blogtober day 16* Autumnal Drinks

Little bit different but as we’re sticking to Blogtober, lets stick to the season.
Now I may not drink 2 of these drinks below but I certainly would like to try them…
I have also included 2 of my FAVOURITE hot drinks for the cooler weather.

All photo credits to google, click the photo for the link.

Yes I love this drink…. LOVE!  And yes I do have this size tub too, go big or go home.  This is my every night go to drink in the cold season.  it is the best hot chocolate ever.  So creamy and bubbly.

Something I would love to try would be a pumpkin spiced latte.  I do like a Latte but really want to know what all the fuss is about.

I have this all year round but I wouldn’t say no to it at night.  I do not fin it gives me a “caffeine rush”.  However in Costa I find it does not taste the same.  So Tassimo pods all the way.

21-kahlua-pumpkin-spice-hot-chocolate-38-1498602367Looking around on the internet this is a Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate….. Hmmm sounds very interesting and would be worth a try.   Pinterest worthy I think.

My Favourite spot to read in my house is on my sofa ( Super excited for my new ones coming soon), all the big lights off, and just leave my small light behind me on.  Have a Yankee candle lit and flickering away in the corner….. favourite scent for autumn is Cinnamon, my other half loves it too.  I will cuddle under a blanket with my hot chocolate and get lost in the pages of a book.
My second favourite spot is of course my bed, who doesn’t love sinking into bed with a fluffy duvet when it is cold.

While looking around the internet I saw some dream spots to read in and wanted to share them with you…..  (I have copied all images and added via the image URL

*Blogtober day 3*OWNtober- Are you joining?

I found this post on Kathy’s blog – Kathy @ Book munches, and wanted to share it with you all.  I loved the idea a lot.

I have never done this challenge before, and have a huge list of TBR building up of books I want to read.   So now it is time to read some sequels….. and there are a few new books coming soon I am very excited about.

OWNtober

Rules
◊ Post a blog post / tweet / whatever saying you’ll be joining me in my battle against the ever-growing physical TBR-piles and ping back to this post.
◊ Share your list of all the books you own and then decide which ones you’re going to read first.
If you can’t figure out a sequence for yourself, you can always start a poll and let others help you out!
◊ If you’re sharing your updates on social media, use #OWNtober so we can follow up on each other!

Important
It isn’t necessary to dedicate the whole month to my monthly challenges.
Our TBR’s are all through the roof so it can already be a challenge to read only one or two books that fit this month’s challenge. You can still join then! The more the merrier!
Remember, it doesn’t matter how much you read. As long as you have fun reading.
And as long as we can tackle our TBR’s, bit by bit.

Are you joining me? Are there any other challenges you’re participating in?
How many books do you own which you haven’t read yet?
