Musing Mondays (July 1)

July 1, 2013

MusingMondays5Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!


My Musing:

Ingenue_JillianLarkinI was at Chapters the other day, and I bought a copy of Jillian Larkin’s “Ingenue“, which was on sale for $5.99! This is book 2 of the “Flappers” series, of which I already own “Vixen” (book 1). Here is the description of “Ingenue” (from Goodreads.com):

Power . . . love . . . scandal . . .
There’s never enough to go around.

In the city that never sleeps, Lorraine Dyer is wide awake. Ever since she exposed Clara Knowles for the tramp she was—and lost her closest confidante in the process—Lorraine has spent every second scheming to make her selfish, lovesick ex–best friend pay for what she did. No one crosses Lorraine. Not even Gloria. 

True love conquers everything—or so Gloria Carmody crazily believed. She and Jerome Johnson can barely scrape together cash for their rent, let alone have a moment to whisper sweet nothings in the dark. And if they thought escaping Chicago meant they’d get away with murder . . . they were dead wrong.

Clara was sure that once handsome, charming Marcus Eastman discovered her shameful secret, he’d drop her like a bad habit. Instead, he swept her off her feet and whisked her away to New York. Being with Marcus is a breath of fresh air—and a chance for Clara to leave her wild flapper ways firmly in the past. Except the dazzling parties and bright lights won’t stop whispering her name. . . . 

INGENUE is the second novel in the sexy, dangerous, and ridiculously romantic Flappers series set in the Roaring Twenties . . . where revenge is a dish best served cold.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your musing in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! :D

  5. Today I’m musing about discovering new genres and discovering we like genres we don’t expect to in my monday musing.

  6. I’ve gotten better about not buying every book in sight. I use to when I had to actually go to the book stores.

    trish – my musing

  7. gosh, when I was a kid my mom had us cleaning and doing laundry when we were tall enough to turn the vacuum cleaner on. Saturday morning was the time, before we could go out…

    speaking of how kids spend, and don’t spend their time, MY MUSE is up!

    and this time I put it in the right place!

  8. I wish I had better bookstores around me. I have to drive into St. Louis if I want to shop at a privately owned bookstore and not the Barnes & Noble at the mall.
