I'm excited and tingly!

I'm really excited!
Not just because of the long weekend about to start, but because I have made some decisions about the blog.

Every week there will be a book review, at least one or two (I am only one person and I can only ignore the kids so much). Although on launch day there will be many. I am looking forward to reviews on books by Stefanie Sloane, Julia Quinn, Carolyn Jewel, Nora Roberts, Eloisa James, and so many more!(I can't show all my cards now!) One review/comparison I am excited for is 50 Shades of Grey vs. The Siren.
Will it be a case of the pretender vs. the contender? I'm starting this weekend so I know it's going to get hot!

I've also been inspired by an article I read on this week about Famous Fiction Writers and Their Cocktails. For every book or TV show that I mention I will pair it with a wine, beer or cocktail (This will involve extensive testing, but I am up for the challenge!)

I will write about TV the day following the episode, I don't want to be the Spoiler Bitch for anyone.

The final exciting announcement today is that I am going to do my own version of the Julie/Julia Project.
I am a big fan and admirer of Bobby Flay. I have watched him on TV for years, and last summer I spent a weekend in NYC. I was lucky enough to have dinner at Bar Americain, my Vidalia Onion Soup and Smoked Chicken entree may have been the best things I ever put in my mouth.
Also, have you seen the man? He's hot! Watching him carve a turkey is practically an erotic experience.
I have ordered the Bar Americain Cookbook. Starting next week I will do at least one recipe a day (it also includes cocktail too!) I will try not to repeat anything but I may not be able to resist. First up will be the Smoked Chicken. My taste buds are tingling already!

Welcome to the front page of my new blog, as you can see it's pretty sparse.
The blog will officially launch on June 1st, until then I'll be working on book reviews, product reviews, stories about life and trolling the internet for pictures of Ian Somerhalder.

Thank you and see you soon!
