Reading List - April 2010 & Monday’s Hot Couple
I’m back and exhausted, lol! But we had a great time! :D
Today was back to business as usual and although a lot of work was waiting for me at the office I did manage to visit a lot of your blogs in between the boring tasks to catch up with all the, sometimes multiple, posts. I didn’t have time to leave comments though, but I will be back in the ‘comment saddle’ by tomorrow night the latest, I think :)
We had a wonderful long weekend, although I missed being online a lot ;) And Queen’s Day (or Koninginnedag as we call it) was one big exhausting party! I took some pictures but it rained part of the time, so there weren’t as many boats as usual in the canals. Here's a little visual impression:
Still, everyone was in a good mood and lots of music was played and we were having a good time until far after midnight, for three nights in a row. We stayed for the rest of the weekend to meet with some other friends, have dinner with them, go out dancing and to the Casino and do some shopping.
And I bought me some ‘real’ books, that is, not of the digital kind but of the dead tree type. I know, it’s a shock! ;) I had these gift certificates, so I was looking for some English paperbacks to spend them on, and I stumbled upon the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost and Soulless by Gail Carriger in the biggest bookshop of Utrecht. I must say that I’ve never seen any of these books before in our local bookstore, so it was a surprise to find those authors. Look at them, being pretty on my desk!
Which reminds me, I have to wrap up my April smut reading month. Here’s my reading list:

It’s a total of 20 titles, but a lot of them are shorts and novella’s. Not a single 5 star rate this month, but still a good average and I enjoyed all the stories.
I hope you all had a great month too!
