This made my day! Thank you is just not enough!

When I started this blog, I did it purely for the joy of promoting my love of reading and my love of authors! So when I receive a gift from an author as a thank you, well that’s just the cherry on top of my sundae!

So imagine my surprise when I received this today!

After a crazy week, including surgery, this made my day!

Thank you Susana Mohel!

Busy, busy Blogger…..

Wow! I have to admit, being a blogger, you have to have some mad organization skills! Good thing this is something I have done pretty much my whole working life! Between keeping Colonels, Sergeant Majors, school principals, lawyers and various other higher ups organized and running like a well oiled machine was what I did since I was 16 it’s kind of second nature! Being an administrative assistant is the bomb!

So anywho, back to my blog! I have been busy, busy, busy reading some amazing stories and cannot wait to share my opinions on them with you! I am so glad I went outside of my comfort zone to start this, I have been getting some great feedback and responses to it!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Fave Reads of 2017

Can you believe the year is almost over?!?

Every year I participate in the Goodreads Reading Challenge, and at the end of the year I like to go through and reminisce about the fabulous books I have read the past year.  When I decided to put on my big girl panties and start this blog, I knew that something I wanted to do was to cap off the year with my list of Favorite Reads.  I started with about of the 200 plus books I have read this year and started whittling away……

When I got down to about 56, I really started to have a hard time, but I knew I had to make it a manageable list so I decided to cap it at 20, what a painful yet rewarding experience.  I have read such amazing books this year by some even more amazing authors.

So here it is ladies and gentlemen (Do I have gentlemen followers yet? Well I like to be all inclusive :), no one likes to be left out!) My favorite reads of 2017.  I am including the links to all of the books here! I hope you find as much enjoyment out these book I have!

As I close out, I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays! May the new year bring health, happiness, new books and new authors!
