A Month of Giving Thanks

Hosted by Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @ Because Reading. #30daysofThanks is originally hosted by The Geeky Blogger and with Felicia’s permission, we adopted something similar, and hope you’ll join us!

A Month of Giving Thanks is a month-long challenge. Every day from November 1st to November 30th I will be sharing the love and being thankful by spotlighting some bloggers and books that I’ve been thankful for this year.

Please note that there is no way that I will be able to express my gratitude to everyone of you in just 30 days. I love everyone who visits the blog and even if I don’t get to single you this year, please know that I appreciate you!

A Month of Giving Thanks Day 3

Today I’d like to thank:

Caffeinated Book Reviewer

I am so thankful that I found Kimba and The Sunday Post from the get-go. My very first week as a blogger, I stumbled upon the Sunday Post and I’ve only missed it a couple weeks here and there since. The Sunday Post was the key to my meeting so many great bloggers (many I’ll be shouting out to in the following weeks) and feeling like a part of the community. Kimba’s a big part of what makes the blogger community so special. She’s so genuinely kind and helpful and she’s one of my blogger heroes. If you’re familiar with her blog, you know what I mean. She’s so organized! She’s always way ahead on her posts, she hosts several events throughout the year (not to mention the weekly Sunday Post), and you’ll never catch her playing comment catch up like I do! I seriously have no idea how she does it (maybe she’s figured out how to clone herself?)

Kimba reads a wide variety of genres and has been responsible for a great deal of my one-clicking over the past year. But the book that stands out to me most Kimba told me about in a comment on my blog and it turned out I already owned it… had owned it for months actually… and I immediately picked it up and devoured it! So I owe Kimba for this discovery (even though I already owned it)!

Today I’m thankful I discovered:

FromΒ  New York Times, USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author J.A. Redmerski, comes a dangerous and boundary-pushing new crime and suspense series, In the Company of Killers.

Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.

Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don't go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.

While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead.

As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor's brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.

This is their story...

I’m kicking myself for not reading the rest of this series yet, but I’m looking forward to it – especially since Kimba has enjoyed the next two books already!

    I’ve been reading Kimba’s blog since shortly after she started blogging and I agree, she’s awesome. When I needed a new Sunday meme, I jumped on hers and she hosts wonderful challenges and read-a-thons. She is amazingly, frighteningly organized and efficient (as is Anna at Herding Cats) and I frequently in awe of her. Fortunately she’s east to chat with. Kimba is on my list of bloggers for later this month, after I finish the peeps that have made the Nook what it is. πŸ™‚

    For a second there, I thought I was in the wrong place. What happened to all of the pink?? πŸ˜‰ Kimberly is definitely one of my go-to bloggers; her reviews are so insightful, and the amount of work that goes into her site leaves me in awe. Now that I’ve read yours, I’ll have to re-visit her review of Killing Sarai.

    Hooray for Kimba! I’ve been following her for awhile now, too! And actually I’ll be switching to Sunday Post in 2015, so I’ll get to visit her even more regularly! πŸ˜€

    I loved Killing Sarai! I need to read the other books, too. I have them on my “maybe” list for December though, if I get through all of my challenge books.

      Yay! It’ll be fun to have you doing the Sunday Post with us – you did it before didn’t you and then switched for this year? Or maybe I’m remembering someone else…

      I’m waiting to decide what I’ll read next for tasks to come up for the SRC. LOL I’m an addict – even if I’m not going to score very high this time around. I tried out books I’ve meant to read for FOREVER so that’s winning for me!

      LOL I have way too many books on my shelves that could easily be attributed to her too! I agree – Kimba is the furthest thing from selfish. So giving and kind, I feel so lucky to know her. The rest of those books are higher up the list now, looking forward to returning to the suspense!

      It is a fairly intense suspense – not my typical genre at all – but I really enjoyed it. So maybe? The writing is great. Yeah, gotta love Kimba- she reads EVERYTHING, so it’s hard to imagine not liking something she reads. And she’s so darn sweet!
