HON - Loved

I am a HUGE House of Night Fan!! In fact...I'm such a big fan, I never finished reading the series. Yup. You heard it right. I do this and it is irritating. I didn't want the series to end so I didn't read the last book. But now I can!! Introducing...

New series with my favorite Nerd Herd!! Loved just came out on 11 July 2017! Can't wait to read it, but I'm thinking that maybe I should now finished the first series. 

Thanks Elle Cosimano!

So I entered The Suffering Tree #TweetATree contest.

First, Elle Cosimano is one of my favorite writers.
Second, the contest asked for a picture of a tree and I had the PERFECT tree.

I edited this a bit. I took out the houses and added tombstones, but the tree is untouched. Here's the original.

Yes, there is still some editing, but I can't find the true original. 😬

Third, I really like trees.

My computer

Fourth, I already read The Suffering Tree as an ARC from NetGalley and thought it was awesome.

And guess what?...


This was the package I won ~ an autographed copy of The Suffering Tree, a bookmark, a sticker and a handcrafted journal. Too cool! 👍

I've never won anything except for 21 Jumpstreet shoelaces and that was some VERY exciting the time.

Thank you Elle Cosimano!


...if you haven't read The Suffering Tree, then get a copy. While you're at it, pick up Nearly Gone and Nearly Found. They are just incredible! I'm halfway through Nearly Found and it's just as good as Nearly Gone. AND...there's one more...Holding Smoke! 

Ya gotta have something to read on the beach!!

Free Little Library Find!

I love our community's Free Little Library! It was given to me by a local book store that was moving off our peninsula. He couldn't take it with him and so asked if we could put it at our community beach. SURE! It has become such an asset! People drop off books and pick some up. It's perfect! We generally don't have too many issues although some teens did vandalize it about a month ago. They pulled the books our and ripped them up. Disgusting behavior! 😠

I was down there yesterday changing the bulletin board and what should I find?

I LOVE Anne Rice!! I'm not sure if I have the The Witching Hour. I think I do. I know I don't have The Body Thief. Also, Who's Afraid of Virginai Woolf? Always up for a classic!

New Trailer!

Woo hoo! I FINALLY uploaded a new book trailer! It's been forever and I am truly sorry. I have a whole bunch sketched out in my notebook and I have to sit down and just get them out. the meantime...enjoy!

This trailer is The Suffering Tree by Elle Cosimano which was the last ARC book that I reviewed. I decided to take a moment and read some books that I've been wanting to read. First and foremost is another Elle Cosimano book...Nearly Found. This is the sequel to Nearly Gone which I dearly loved! So far Nearly Found is just as good and it's so great to get back to Leigh and Reece although at the moment in the book they are not doing so well. Anyway, The Suffering Tree was a great end for ARC for the summer UNTIL I was handed another by a friend who owns a bookstore and was told I HAVE to read it...The Store by James Patterson. It's sounds a bit dystopian which is right up my alley and James Patterson is a madman! I do believe that he is chained up in someone's attic and forced to pump out book after book...adults, teens, doesn't matter...JUST WRITE!! I have to get the book back to my friend so I don't want to keep too long, so I'll read it next.

Anyway, enjoy the trailer and hopefully I'll get caught up this summer!
