Mermaids!!! Review---Forgive My Fins

Mermaids, wow have I stumbled into a whole new world and it could easily become an obsession. Seriously, MERMAIDS!
Probably a month ago, a fellow blogger i read mentioned Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs and i thought, i have to read this, even though its young adult. I don't normally read too many young adult books, well honestly b/c i like a little romance in my books then just kissing, lol. But, i had to read this. And well, i LOVED it!

Forgive My Fins

Seriously, look at that cover! 

So, what's it about:
Lily is a mermaid living on land. She has a crush on the high school swim jock, Brody. She wants to make him hers and bring him home to rule in her kingdom, as she is to be queen. However, annoying next door boy Quince has other plans. One night he steals an unsuspecting kiss from Lily, only to learn she is a mermaid and if you kiss a mermaid, you too become a mermaid....or merman in  his case. Then things start to heat up between the two. She is so sure Quince is not the one for her, yet her own father isn't so sure. He wants her to really look at the situation she is in to see if Quince or Brody is right for her.

What i Thought:
Well, heck, you know that! I loved it. If this had not been young adult, the chemistry between those two would have really heated up. But either way, the chemistry was good. It was very push and pull back and forth. Very good read. If you looking for something new, go check this one out!

So...what else is mermaid out there? Any books anyone recommends?

My Rating:

Review---The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven

The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven

Quick Summary:
You meet Alex and his father mainly in this book. After church one Sunday the father and son are in a car accident. After the car accident Alex is presumed to be dead. There is very little life left in him. Kevin (the father) is rushed to the ER and Alex is sent to the local children's hospital. This story is the journey of Alex's recovery and he shares with us only some of the events he experienced while visiting with God and being taken care of by Jesus.

What I Thought:
This was a remarkable story. And its a true one! This little boy at one times was so bad off that his skull was no longer attached to his spine. Through the miracle of angels, God, and prayer he never had to have surgery to have it reattached. It was easy to be skeptical at the parts where the boy, Alex is talking about Heaven. Of coarse part of me thought, Ok, this boy is now 7 and has been in a coma, but then i realized then i would be life everyone else. People saw and felt things in the presence of this boy. And well, I frankly believe him.

It was an amazing story. It is one to share with others and you will want to have on your bookshelf. You will feel the presence of God while reading this. You won't leave this story and not get anything out of it. The journey with this family is remarkable. They were so strong and believed with everything they had, that their son would be ok.

My Rating:

This book was provided to me by Tyndale Network for my honest opinion. I have given you that!

Review---Victoria Dahl's Tumble Creek Series

I have made it out of the Tumble Creek Series by Victoria Dahl. Wow, a series hasn't grabbed me like that in a long time. I loved it! So, what is this wonderful series? Well first up we have:
Talk Me Down

Meet Molly who is an erotica writer. However, this is her secret and she doesn't want anyone to know. She has always lived in the shadows of older brother Quinn. So, she keeps her success to herself. She has moved back to Tumble Creek. She spends her time with her best friend Lori and drooling over the boy who has ruled her fantasies for years, Ben Lawson. Soon things start heating up between her and Ben as someone is trying to run Molly out of town.  The chemistry and romance is sizzling in this book!

Up Next:
Start Me Up

Lori Love has had dreams to get out of town. She even got there once, until her father was injured and she had to come back to Tumble Creek to take care of him. Now, 10 years later and 1 year after his death, Lori has many people approaching her for her fathers land. Ben Lawson starts to dig up on her fathers death and starts to think it was a murder. Quinn moves back to town and is building his own house. Lori goes out to fix his backhoe, seeing as she is the best mechanic in town. Then somehow the two come into agreement that they will be bed buddies. Only, Quinn who is Molly's brother has better ideas and takes on the protective roll when someone starts vandalizing Lori's property.

And lastly:
Lead Me On (Hqn)

In this story we meet Jane, who we actually already knew from the book before. She is Quinn's secretary. She is miss prim and proper. Hair always back in a bun, always dressed just the right way and very well mannered. Only, she has a secret, she is actually from the wrong side of the track and is hiding it from everyone. Everyone but Chase who enters her life and rocks her world with his tattoo's. She struggles with herself as she decides if she should go with the guy who makes her remember her past, or stay with the business suit kind of guys.

What I Thought:
I loved the series. It was awesome. All three books. I hope there is a forth, but i didn't read about anyone in  book three who could be a possibility for a forth book. But, you never know, huh?
If your looking to sit down and get drawn in to a good and sizzling romance, then pick up Talk Me Down and see how that one does for you. It was my favorite in the series.

I am so sad the series is over :o(

Review---Forgive Yourself by Allie Sager

I was given the opportunity to review Forgive Yourself by Allie Sager. This is her debut novel. I generally in my quick summary, try to sum the book up in my own words. However for this one, i feel like the summary on Goodreads does a much better job then i could.

Quick Summary:
Evocative and filled with a rare compassion, Forgive Yourself by new author Allie Sager blends supernatural dreamscapes with affairs of the heart and unforgivable betrayal. Smart and telling, the author enlists a stunning and heartfelt prose to weave one woman’s reluctant love story. On the surface to the outside world, Sammy Logan might appear to be a woman who has it all, but the fact is she is married to a man who has never truly forgiven her for a past she had no control over. Haunted each day by the vivid secret, she turns to Conner Simpson, a man she has always loved—the man without question who makes her feel complete. Caught on the brink, confused, but certainly not alone, Sammy must first forgive herself, make peace with the dark demons of her past and her mystic ancestral visions before she can truly be free

What I thought:
I read this in an afternoon. I loved it. It was completely different then i thought it was going to be when i sat down to read it. This story draws you in from the beginning. It is a short book, 195 pages. There is a spiritual person in this book who helps Sammy and the rest of her family to where she needs to be. She needs to forgive herself for things from the past, because everyone else has already forgiven her.

The book is one of those, that is hard to describe because i will give too much away. The ending is happy. And you see two things that you didn't even expect in the beginning. The book when i first sat down to read it, i thought i was going to be reading a classic romance with a woman with two lovers, but this book was so much more complex then that. There was mystery, suspense, hurt, forgiveness, love, all mixed into one book.

My Rating:

Definitely if you see this one on the shelves, pick it up. You won't regret it. I do want to note that the cover that is shown above is not the correct cover. When receiving the book from the author, she let me know the cover has changed. I could not find an changed cover online. The cover is pretty much the same, just without the woman's face.

This book was provided to me by Bostick Communications and Allie Sager for my honest opinion. That is what have given. :o)

Review---Simon's Choice (Your gonna wanna read this one!)

Simon's Choice

Simon's Choice by Charlotte Castle. Seriously....your gonna wanna read this one. Wow, what an awesome book! Due out August 2010

Quick Summary:
Simon is the father to a beautiful little girl named Sarah. He is married to Melissa. The family has been through so much. Sarah had been diagnosed at 5 with cancer. She did treatment for two years and was well on her way to her normal life again. She was healthier and Simon and Melissa thought they had finally beaten the cancer. Unfortunately, the cancer has come back. Poor Sarah doesn't have a chance of making it. At a time when two parents should be together and joined to support with one another, these two parents are falling apart from one another.  It all starts when Simon tells his daughter he will go to Heaven with her. Simon then has to make a choice after making this promise with his daughter. Will he take his life to be with his daughter on her journey to Heaven or will he stay here and continue his life.

What I thought:
Amazing! Absolutely amazing. This book is going to make it to a top sellers chart in no time. What an emotional story. You cried from almost the beginning to the end. The ending was amazing and left you wanting an epilogue to know what might have happened after. Make sure your alone if you don't want you kids asking you why in the world are you crying! A book like this makes you open your eyes a little wider and look around at what you have and appreciate it. Many characters that were friends in this book to Simon and Melissa literally abandoned them in their time that they needed them the most. I was heartbroken by this. I only hope that if i ever know anyone in this situation, that i am not like that. I of coarse pray that i am never in the situation, just like many of the characters. I definitely think you should read this. It was an amazing journey with Simon as he made his choice in the end.

My rating:

Clicking the picture above of book will take you to amazon to purchase
This book was provided to me by Charlotte for my honest opinion. I have given you my honest opinion and i hope its one that makes you want to run out and buy this book!

How Do You Organize the Blogs you Read?

Are you like me and sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of blogs you follow? I use google reader to keep up with my blogs. Currently i have two categories: Mom Blogger and Book Bloggers. However, to be honest...i read the book blogs more often. However, i am following a ton of blogs and i am looking for some other way to maybe categorize. Maybe categorize them by the type of books? That might take awhile though.

So, how do you have your reader organized?

New Ratings---Butterflies!

I love butterflies! Here are my new ratings :o) I still have some resiszing to work on, but 1 don't rate things too often too low.

Review---Insatiable by Meg Cabot


Quick Summary:
Meena Harper works as a soap opera writer. She has a gift to her that she would trade in an instant. She can meet someone and know when they are going to die.  She works hard as a writer and gets passed up as being head writer. The girl selected to be head writer wants to change the direction of the show to VAMPIRES. Meena Harper dreads the idea and is tired of all the media hype around vampires. 

Lucian is The Prince who comes for a visit. He immediately falls in love with Meena and she also feels the same  for him.  Until, Alaric enters her life and tells her things that she just can't believe. Vampires are real! It was her worst nightmare coming true. Even worse, someone she knows is a vampire. Even more, Alaric is a real vampire hunter!

What I Thought:
Loved it! Al though i had no idea when i downloaded this that i was going to be reading a paranormal book. Meg Cabot is not known for that, but for chick lit! I really loved how they brought in much of the hype that is in the media now about vampires. Because even though i do like a good paranormal every now and then, it really does seem like its everywhere.  And leave it to Meg Cabot to poke fun at it, and still write a paranormal book.

I am hoping there is another book after this one. It left kind of with a cliffhanger. You are left wondering which way she will go with her love interest. Right now her heart is leaning towards both men. So, if anyone knows of another one that might come out, let me know!

My rating: *****

Review---Fools Rush In

Fools Rush In

Look at this adorable cover. You just wanna fall  in love with the novel. However, if you read two posts down, i wrote about a book with disappointment. I am sorry to say it was this one!

Quick Summary:
Millie Barnes has always been kind of a stalker. She knows everything about Joe Carpenter. She has had a crush on him since high school. Now when she returns to the Cape after going away to become a doctor, she still has her sights set on Joe.  Only before long, and spending so much time with her ex brother in law, Sam Nickerson, she starts to find herself attracted to him too.

What i thought:
Ok, it was a bit childish to me. That is where i had a hard time with this book. We had a grown 29 year old woman who still acted like she was in middle school and had a crush on someone. I found it to be a little unrealistic. I felt like the main character Millie having gone to med school and everything had no idea how the real world worked. She just seemed like she needed to be smacked and told to grow up.

I wanted to love this book, and it was a cute story. A little too unbelievable in some ways. Once i got past the childish ways i felt the main character acted, i liked it.

I do want to read something else by the author, Kristan Higgins. She has excellent writing skills. I think i just picked a book that wasn't for me. So, hopefully the next time i get my hands on one, I will have a better review to post.

My Rating:

Its Monday, What are you Reading?

How do you deal with book disappointment?

Do you hate it when you are so psyched about an author you have read about and can't wait to get your hands on one of their books; you finally do and you can't wait to dive into the book, only to get let down!!! Only to think, wow the cover was so catching, i have been reading rave reviews about this author. Yet, this book just isn't what i was hoping for. Is it because i put too much hype into the author or maybe the book itself? To the books defense, this particular book hasn't been one i have read reviews for, as it is i think her first one she wrote. So, i am winding down the book into the last 150 pages. Hoping to finish it sometimes today. Hoping in these last few pages to be blown away. It has happened, so one can hope!

So, has the often happened to you?

Review---Promises to Keep (Jane Green)

Promises to Keep: A Novel

Warning: Before reading this book, make sure you have the time to give to this book and at least one if not two boxes of tissues handy!

Jane Green did it again and this book was phenomenal! Wow, it didn't even take me 24 hours with this book. It was impossible to put down. It was a book that you knew how it was going to end, but you were so praying that it wouldn't end that way! 

From Goodreads : Callie Perry is a successful family photographer living in upstate New York. She adores her two daughters, has great friends, and actually doesn't mind that her workaholic husband gets home at 9 p.m. every night-that is, when he's not traveling six months out of the year. 

Callie's younger sister, Steff, on the other hand, has never grown up. She's a free spirit, living in downtown Manhattan and bouncing between jobs and boyfriends. Lately, she's been working as a vegan chef, even though she can't cook. 

Lila Grossman is Callie's best friend and has finally met the man of her dreams. Eddie has two wonderful children, but also a drama queen ex-wife who hates Lila. And then there are Callie and Steff's parents, Walter Cutler and Honor Pitman. Divorced for thirty years, they rarely speak to each other. 

The lives of these colorful characters intersect when they each receive a shocking note that summons them together for one extraordinary summer in Maine and changes their lives forever. This novel is about the hard choices we have to face, about having to be your parents' child long after you've grown up, and about the enduring nature of love.

This book gets 5 stars all the way. All i can say is wow, i cried, i laughed, i felt the emotion. It was a great book. I followed Jane Green on Twitter while she wrote this, and i now understand so many of her tweets.  You must go out right now and buy this book. If you have dealt with any type of lose, which we all have, it will hit close to home.

Yes, before reading this, you must know, death is dealt with in this book. It is always something that is hard to deal with and even read about. So just know going into this book, you will be taken on an emotional roller coaster ride.

Review---Shadow Cay by Leona Bodie

Taken from Goodreads: An instant hook thriller when paradise becomes a life-and-death nightmare. Already reeling from a rash of maritime disasters, a war and international terrorists, vigilante Madeleine Nesbitt and amateur detective Peter Duncan are destined for even darker days when they investigate the man with no conscience behind the world's most profitable enterprise. They find themselves in a sea of corruption, deception and lies.

So what did i think? I have a mixed review. I don't usually read full out thrillers unless its James Patterson. So , i might not have fully known what to expect. In saying this, I liked the book. The story was captivating. I did want to get to the end, to see what was going to happen. I was rooting for the bad guys to be taken down.

What I didn't like was that I kinda didn't get the point fully to the story. The story was good like is said, but i don't fully feel like from the description on the back on the book, that i had any clue was i was going to read about.  For the most part i went into it blind.  I think the description on the back of the book could explain a little more. There were a lot of characters in this book to keep up with. That was rather difficult until i got a little more then halfway through. The book is full of dates, that at first i felt were important to keep up with, but then learned i didn't really have too.

Like i said, it was a good thriller if that is your kind of book. There is no romance for romance junkies hoping to find a tiny spark between two people. You will feel emotions for the people who lost their lives.  And most of all, you really are waiting for the bad guys to get taken down and rooting for the good guys to make it.  I think this would make an excellent movie. Maybe we will get to see it on the big screen!

This book gets 3 stars.

This book was provided to me from Bostick Communications and WRB Publishings for my review. My review does not have to be positive, it has to be my own.

Book Buyers's it going?

Fellow Book Buyers Anonymous bloggers, how is it going? Have you kept to your goals? Have you fallen off the wagon?

When deciding to join up at 25 hour books for Book Buyers Anonymous, i set goals.  The main was to simply not buy any books what so ever.  I don't have a huge TBR list, but i want to get it read down and concentrate on what i have here.

I created my google spread sheet of what i own. CLICK HERE to see it.

I have stayed on the wagon. Though, i must admit....i really wanna go to the used book store near me i love. I wanna browse all the books to see what has come in that i might want to read. The library is still having there 25 cent sale, and while i bought several before joining book ban, i want to buy more. While i know 25 cents isn't much and who could blame me. I promised myself NO BOOKS! So i am sticking to it. I have even decided not to check any out. To concentrate on the books i have here. At the end of July, i plan to load up books i no longer want and visit my used book store and then get myself a small reward. The books that are old library books that i can't trade in there, i plan to host a giveaway for some of them before long.

So, i haven't fallen off the wagon yet. Though, reading some reviews from fellow bloggers, a list of books i want to find after this is adding up. Hopefully by august i will get this list of TBR down!!!!

So tell me, how is it going for you. I would love to hear.

Review---The Black Sheep and The Princess

Black Sheep and the Princess  I sat down yesterday and decided it was time for another Donna Kauffman. She is always a good read. Haven't found one yet that wasn't. And this one, yup it was just as good. Meet Kate, who comes from a wealthy family and as a teenager had a crush on the towns drunk son, Donovan who was never on the same social level as her. Meet Donaovan who now goes by Mac. Now a PI who works for free to help those who need help. He also had the hots for Kate in high school, but never acted on it.

18 years later, Kate needs help and who else is there to help her find out who is vandalising the camp she wants to open. Well, no one other then Donavan.

The chemistry in this book is head on. You can tell by chapter 2 these two are hot for one another. It takes them a little longer to realize it. They don't know if it is just feelings from high school, or if they are just meant for one another.

The mystery in the book is just as good. And in the end when you find out who is vandalising poor Kate, you are a little stunned, but then again knew it was going to happen.

I loved the book. There are two more in the series, The Black Sheep and the Hidden Beauty, and The Black Sheep and the English Rose. I don't own these two, but they will definitely be put onto my TBR list to pick up if i can find them. I recommend if you looking for a romance with a little sizzle that this book is for you. Donna Kauffman NEVER fails in the romance and sizzle department.

Review----The Vampire and The Virgin

The Vampire and the Virgin (Love at Stake, Book 8)  
What's it about (taken from amazon)
Olivia's packing list:
1. Sunscreen
2. Bathing suit
3. Flip-flops
FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris was looking for a cool ocean breeze, sand between her toes, and a break from her crazy, chaotic, and sometimes all-too-dangerous life. But when she escaped to the small Greek island of Patmos, all she got were meddling grandmothers trying to marry her off. Can't they see that none of the men around interests her—except Robby MacKay?
Robby's packing list:
1. Synthetic blood
2. More synthetic blood
3. Jogging clothes
(even vamps have to stay in shape!)
Robby needs to cool off, too, since all he can think about is revenge on the Malcontent bloodsuckers who once held him captive—but then he meets Olivia, the beauty with wild curls and a tempting smile. When a deadly criminal from a case back home tracks her down, Robby will have to save her life—along with giving her a first time she'll never forget . . .

What did i think:
To be honest....i first read it for the title. As i said in my Its Monday post, sometimes us women are just as bad as men. I see the word virgin and was ready to see the vamp get with the virgin! Then after reading what it was about, i knew i was hooked into reading this book. 

I liked it. I had read another book by Kerrelyn Sparks probably two years ago when i went through my huge paranormal reading stage. Every now and then i pick another one up now. 

In some ways, Olivia seems just a little to easy, seeing as she is a 24 year old virgin, but maybe she was just ready to give it up. She is not someone who easily trust anyone, and even in the time she finally was intimate with Robby, she didn't fully trust him. 

Robby is a vampire who was sent on vacation due to being kidnapped are terrorized by the bad vampire, the Meloncomets.  He is filled with anger but through loving Olivia, he heals.

The book was good. It was a fairly quick read. There was mystery in it and the suspense held well. I read the e-book version to this.

Its Monday, What are you Reading?

***Check out my giveaway on the side bar!***

Slow start today! I normally do this the night before so all i have to do is post in the morning. This second cup of coffee is probably going to turn into a third, which doesn't happen all to often!

What did i read last week?

  1. Moon Rising by Laurie Bowler. Excellent book. I wrote a long review on it for her. She definitely has talent and will be known before long.
  2. Poor Little Bitch Girl by Jackie Collins. This was my first book by her. LOVED it! 
  3. Scandalising the Ton by Diane Gatson. I won this in a giveaway and since i am part of the book ban...i am reading books i might have left there. It was less then 300 pages. A quick afternoon read. For a harlequin book...the sex scenes just weren't there. I wasn't too crazy for this one. Hey...i can be judgemental, it was a harlequin for crying out loud and it seriously lacked what we know from harlequin!
Current reading: The Vampire and The Virgin by Kerralyn Sparks. Honestly, i am reading this for the title. Sometimes us women are just as bad as men. Throw the word virgin in there and we get all excited! lol

Upcoming this week:
The only thing i know of right now is my new Jane Green.

Head on over to One Persons Journey and Link up!

Jackie Collins---Poor Little B***** Girl Review

Poor Little Bitch Girl  This was my first Jackie Collins book and yes, it mainly interested me because of the cover and the name. Who couldn't wonder what it was about. Denver is the main character you meet and most everyone spins around her. Annebelle i do believe is the one being classified with the B word. Then there is Carolyn. Oh wait....there are a string of hot men too. There is a murder to be solved and a kidnapping all in one book!

Fast paced for sure. This was so hard to put down. I had to know what was going to happen. There were so many interesting story lines. I don't know if I would consider this a romance novel. There was a short romance in it.

This book was just highly entertaining!

This is a perfect book to forget the day and read. Chapters are fairly short. The story draws you in from the beginning. So, if your looking for a day to forget all your problems and tasks, check this one out. Hey, you can even click the picture above and it will take you right to Amazon!
