Feedburner Email Subscriptions Ending Soon

Unless you've been living under a rock (or taking total refuge in fictional worlds in order to avoid the real one - and who could blame you?), I'm sure you've heard that Google is discontinuing Feedburner's RSS email subscriptions. They've announced that this is effective July 2021 so no way to know if that means July 1st or July 31st, but suffice it to say that email subscriptions through Feedburner are now living on borrowed time. 

Like many others, I'm not thrilled with the decision, but what can you do, right? Roll with the changes. :)

For those of you who subscribe to Girl Plus Books via email, first of all, thank you! And secondly, I hope you'll continue to follow along with either Bloglovin' or Feedly (follow buttons in the right sidebar). You can even subscribe to my Bloglovin' feed via email - just look for the box in the right sidebar where it says "Follow Posts by Tanya" and enter your email address. Not much will change and you'll still receive updates in your inbox any time I post. Easy peasy!

There actually aren't all that many of you who subscribe via email - most are already following on Bloglovin' or Feedly - but I wanted to give a couple options for those that do. And no matter how you follow, whether you're new or have been here from the start, whether you comment often or just lurk around quietly... thanks for being here. I appreciate you taking time to check in on what I have to say. For the record, I think you are delightful!

Review / Release Blitz: You Loved Me Once by Corinne Michaels

I'm losing myself trying to save everyone else...

You Loved Me Once by Corinne Michaels is now live!

From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a heartbreakingly beautiful standalone story about letting love in.

I'm losing myself trying to save everyone else...

As a doctor, I walk a dangerously delicate balance of being compassionate but not overly invested. The same is true in my personal life--love is a luxury I can't afford.

It isn't until Dr. Westin Grant breaks down all my walls and offers me a future, I find myself wondering if I'm brave enough to risk my heart.

When who I was and who I've tried to become collide during my clinical trial, the fate of one patient changes everything.

In a single moment, everything I've worked for is jeopardized. My integrity, my career, and even my relationship with Westin.

He loved me once, I just hope he can love me always.

Serenity was forever changed after the death of her mother and the end of a relationship she was sure would last forever. Now a talented surgeon who treats women with ovarian cancer, Serenity excels at her job, but also keeps everyone at arm’s length, including Westin, the man she’s been seeing the last two years. When faced with impossible choices, she had to decide what’s more important – the past that has kept her in its hold, or a future that she hasn’t allowed herself to hope for.

So much about You Loved Me Once focused on the choices we are faced with and how each one has consequences. I have to be honest and admit that I struggled with the choices Serenity made. As a physician, she was faced with situations that most of us will never have to even contemplate. She lived with the knowledge that her decisions could mean the difference between life or death for her patients. So, I acknowledge that I cannot truly understand the weight of that burden but even so, I grew frustrated as she seemed to compound one mistake by making three more. Her every move was so clouded by the past and her inability to move on. She held tight to the past with both hands and refused to let go.

I’m being intentionally vague with details because it would be a shame to ruin the twists that Corinne Michaels delivers in You Loved Me Once. There were surprises and twists of fate that left me stunned, and watching the story unfold made for a remarkable reading experience.

While romance is featured, it’s not always front and center. First and foremost, this is Serenity’s story and her journey to reconcile her past. But when there is romance, it comes from one of the swooniest, kindest, most patient leading men you’ll ever come across. Westin is one of a kind and there’s no doubt you’ll fall a little in love with him, too.

If you’re already a fan of Corinne Michaels, you know that she consistently delivers emotional, heartfelt stories. You Loved Me Once has those hallmark elements and provides food for thought with its ethical dilemmas.

The Sunday Post #251 | June 27, 2021


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's a chance to share news: a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books,
 and share what's coming up on your blog in the week ahead. 
Happy Sunday, friends. I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. It's been a rainy week here, which I've loved. Everyone else is complaining like crazy and I just sit back and quietly clap my hands and hope for more. :)

I had to have some lab work done Thursday morning so I decided to make that a work from home day. And on Friday Boss #1 and Boss #2 both worked from home so it was just me and Boss #3. It made for a quiet day and an easy end to the work week.

The exciting news of the week was that the Tampa Bay Lightning won Game 7 on Friday and they're headed back to the Stanley Cup Finals! They won the Stanley Cup last year and it's been so exciting watching them this season as they advanced through the play-offs. Game 1 of the Finals is tomorrow night (Monday) so I'll be glued to the TV cheering them on.

In other big news, my nephew got engaged this week! It still kind of boggles my mind. I remember being at the hospital the night he was born... and now he's 25 years old, a high school history teacher, and has a fiancée. How did that happen?! :)

This week's 80's music fix is Queen of the Broken Hearts (1983) by Loverboy. For no reason other than it's a cool song and the video was a typical 1980's head-scratcher.
