Hi all, so guess it back to normal routine time with the holidays over. This routines pretty new to me actually since I’d finished school in the December so I’m actually working full time instead of having classes (until this fall, where hopefully I’ll get into grad school). It’s kind of nice because I definitely have a lot more free time for fun reading! Hope everyone’s having a nice week!

So just a couple from Netgalley for review; I’m still trying to play catch up with my TBR list and there’s just so many new awesome releases!
(01) When She Was Wicked Anne Barton
Some rules simply beg to be broken…
A dressmaker in London’s busiest shop, Miss Anabelle Honeycote overhears the ton’s steamiest secrets—and (occasionally) uses them to her advantage. It isn’t something she’s proud of, but the reluctant blackmailer needs the money to care for her gravely ill mother. To make up for her misdeeds, Anabelle keeps to a firm set of rules:
• Never request payment from someone who cannot afford it.
• Never reveal the secrets of a paying client.
• Never enter into any form of social interaction with a client.
Her list keeps her (somewhat) honest—until she encounters Owen Sherbourne, the Duke of Huntford. Not only does Owen nip Anabelle’s extortion plans in the bud, the devilishly handsome Duke soon has the sexy seamstress dreaming of more than silks and satins. With Owen, Anabelle enjoys pleasures she never imagined . . . until a scandal from the past resurfaces. Now her rules could mean his family’s ruin. Owen’s searing kisses carry the promise of passion, but how will he react when Anabelle’s most devastating secret is finally revealed?
Finished already (took me a day)! Because it was actually a really good read (: Review soon.
(02) Sudden Death in New York City (Screech Owls #13) by Roy MacGregor
Nish has done some crazy things – but nothing to match this! At midnight on New Year’s Eve he’s planning to “moon” the entire world.
The Screech Owls have come to New York City for the Big Apple International Peewee Tournament. They’ll be playing in Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Rangers, and on New Year’s Eve they are going to Times Square for the biggest party in history. The countdown to midnight will be broadcast live on a giant TV screen and beamed around the world by a satellite. But Data and Fahd figure out that with just a laptop computer and video camera they can interrupt the broadcast – and Nish will have pulled off the most outrageous stunt ever.
Travis, Sarah, and the others have heard it all before. They are more interested in playing in the tournament and exploring the most exciting city on Earth. But no one anticipated just how exciting New York can be. Just hours before midnight, the Owls discover that terrorists plan to disrupt the New Year’s celebration in a more dramatic way than even Nish could have imagined.
Screech Owls gets a cover re-vamp! I loved this series as a kid. Best hockey playing, murder solving team everrrrrr!
