Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - Pushing the Limits was so good! I got Better than Chocolate, too. I hadn’t heard of it before, but it looks super adorable. I love the title and cover!

July 8, 2012 - 11:00 pm

Estelle - G, you are a trouble maker. haha

July 8, 2012 - 10:59 pm

Estelle - G, oh you. You are a troublemaker!

July 8, 2012 - 10:59 pm

Estelle - A, you’re so welcome! Always glad to pass along the book love! Yay for awesome books!

July 8, 2012 - 10:54 pm

Estelle - M, so crazy how Easy is making the rounds. Can’t wait to find a moment to start it. I still have so many library books out and a few ARCs I need to get to. It’s insane right now! Hope you had a great weekend. Thanks for commenting as always! I love to hear from you!

July 8, 2012 - 10:49 pm

Estelle - E, It is rather annoying with the ARC is crappy. I had that problem with Summer Nights… there was a strange nothing page in between chapters and it made flipping quite annoying. Hope you had a great weekend. I can’t wait to watch your vlog!!

July 8, 2012 - 10:48 pm

Estelle - J, you crack me up. I’m usually not lucky enough to tan so much during the summers anymore but it seems our cruise really helped in that department. Pale is pretty, btw! Think of Snow White! ๐Ÿ™‚ Excited to hear what you think about Pushing as well!

July 8, 2012 - 10:46 pm

Estelle - M, you are so sweet! I don’t now why I look so tan in that video. It’s bizarre! Seems like Pushing the Limits is making the rounds this week! Can’t wait to see what everyone thinks. I know I’ve been reading a lot of mixed reviews! Thx for stopping in!

July 8, 2012 - 10:29 pm

Margie - Oh, your tan looks so good and you looks so pretty!

Great list of books this week! I just got Pushing the Limits too and I’m really looking forward to reading it soon too!
Hope you enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I’m sorry… I listened, but all I could pay attention to was your completely awesome tan line! That has never happened to me, because I will be forever pale or lobster red.

I just got Pushing the Limits on Netgalley, so it’ll be fun to see if we have the same opinions or not.

Always fun to see you! ๐Ÿ™‚

Melissa - Pushing the Limits is supposedly really great!!

elena - I’m reading Pushing the Limits right now! You’re so lucky you have a physical copy because I get SO DISTRACTED reading on my laptop & the copy for Kindle is really weird. Going to try to finish this book today though. Excited for your reviews, the latter sounds so mysterious. Happy reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

July 8, 2012 - 5:07 pm

Rachel @ hello, chelly - Yay, I got mentioned in your video! haha. I really hope you like Pushing the Limits ๐Ÿ™‚

July 8, 2012 - 4:47 pm

VeganYANerds - Good to see you, hun! I bought the Kindle version of Easy a couple of weeks ago after I heard really good things about, but I still haven’t read it – thanks for the reminder!

I agree, Pushing the Limits sounded really similar to Take Me There, and I didn’t enjoy PtL but some people love it, so I hope you do too!

July 8, 2012 - 3:07 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Thank you, thank you, thank you for sending me SUCH A RUSH. I read it the day I got it – and I loved it. While it’s no longer in my hands, I want to thank you for sharing the experience of the book with me!

And also, I totally jumped on Ginger’s recommendation. I finished EASY this morning – and LOVED it. It’s SO GOOD. I just couldn’t put it down when I had started it – and I hope you enjoy it!

July 8, 2012 - 11:15 am

Ginger @ GReads! - “It’s 3.99, that’s totally OK.” hahahaha I hope you enjoy Easy as much as I did. Insanely addicting.

Adult Fiction Review: All Summer Long by Susan Mallery - […] I had heard the rumor that All Summer Long sizzled even more than the previous book in the Foolโ€™s Gold series, Summer Nights. […]

August 5, 2012 - 10:47 pm

Melissa - Since July, I am reading All Summer Long right now & I am loving it!!

July 28, 2012 - 4:08 am

Stephanie G - Great review! Summer Nights was a fun story. I loved the dancing on the bar scene at the beginning. Fools Gold is such a great series. Susan is such a great story-teller and I absolutely love all of her books. ๐Ÿ™‚

July 26, 2012 - 9:59 am

Tanya - Summer Nights is one of the best books I have read this summer! But then again, I always love Fools Gold. The playlist is awesome I love all tose songs buth what about THE Summer Nights anthem (you know the one from Grease) I know it’s not country but…I think it deserves an honorable mention. I can’t wait for All Summer Long to come out!!!!

July 23, 2012 - 10:42 pm

Estelle - Thx for stopping by Beccie! Your comment made me laugh. I should be starting her next book soon & I’m curious if she uses the same words… we shall see.

July 23, 2012 - 9:31 pm

Beccie Weaver - I’ve found that most romances I read lately all have the same sex scenes. I love Susan’s books so much but yes the scenes tend to sound cut and pasted

July 15, 2012 - 9:48 pm

Melissa - Summer Nights is a great summer read. Annabelle is caring, a great friend, & so sweet! I love that Annabelle wanted to learn how to ride a horse for her fundraiser for her bookmobile. I don’t want to give away anything. I love that there is so many surprises! There is 1 thing that I absolutely love a lot & it has to do with Shane, but I am not going to give it away. Summer Nights is my favorite book in the entire Fool’s Gold series!

July 9, 2012 - 1:22 pm

Dollie - I love the Fool’s Gold series, and your play list is AWESOME! I could totally see Luke Bryan or Jason Aldean holding a concert in Fool’s Gold. Your review of Summer Nights reminded me of how much I loved reading the book! My favorite part of Summer Nights has to be the ever growing farm ๐Ÿ™‚

July 7, 2012 - 1:20 pm

Michele - I loved “Summer Nights” and the way Shane and Annabelle connected as friends and he didn’t even realize he was in love with her until she turned his marriage proposal. From cover to cover, this was a great book and for me, her books always end to soon. I can’t wait to read Charlie and Clay’s story in “All Summer Long”. I will be so sad when this trilogy comes to an end and we have to wait until next summer to get our fix again!.

July 6, 2012 - 4:34 pm

Tiffany - I love Susan Mallery’s books. I think this is a great read for those who love romance but want a great story to go along with it. Susan has built up her Fool’s Gold stories by building upon the town and it amazes me how they each stand alone but are perfect as a series too! I’d recommend buying this one and reading it again later.

July 6, 2012 - 7:07 am

Shannon - Fool’s Gold is addicting! Summer Nights was a perfect summer book. It should be on everyone’s must read list! Enjoy!

July 3, 2012 - 2:20 pm

Estelle - J, I think we need a sequel just about Shane.

July 3, 2012 - 2:20 pm

Estelle - S, let me know how you like the playlist! I really tried to capture the feeling in the book. Like utter hotness. ha

July 3, 2012 - 2:20 pm

Estelle - E, yep! The next book in the series is supposed to be even hotter. I got approved for it yesterday… and I’m scared. ha

July 3, 2012 - 5:18 am

VeganYANerds - I don’t read a lot of romance novels but this does sound fun! I like that there was a librarian and that she wasn’t stereotypical. I am wary of the way romance authors tend to overuse descriptions, but if it was only towards the end, I’m sure it’s not too bad!

July 2, 2012 - 5:12 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - YAY FOR THIS PLAYLIST! I always like a good country recommendation, though I only started listening to it fairly recently. And this book sounds like a lot of fun! I’m definitely going to have to give this Fool’s Gold series a try ๐Ÿ™‚

July 2, 2012 - 4:25 pm

Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - A librarian and a cowboy? Yes, please! That pretty much guarantees any book a spot on my TBR list, regardless of plot, haha.

I’m excited to check out the playlist, too! I love listening to country music in the summer, so that will be perfect.

Great review. ๐Ÿ™‚

July 2, 2012 - 12:17 pm

elena - Ooh, this book got you blushing? It must be really something then! Romance novels are fun and addicting. I mostly read historical romances but maybe I will branch out one day.

July 2, 2012 - 10:19 am

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I’m so happy you liked this one! It’s one of my favorite romance series and am always excited when my friends read them and like them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, that playlist couldn’t be more perfect, Estelle!!! I’m going to listen to it anytime I feel like remembering the hotness that is Shane. ๐Ÿ˜€
