Brief synopsis:  Lucille has enough on her plate trying to keep an organized house, trying to get her granddaughter baptized, and trying to lose weight. But all those problems take a back seat when the owner of her favorite pizza place falls dead at her feet..literally. With the help of her best friend Flo, she decides to take on the case on her own.

Review: Knowing that this was the 3rd book in a series, I knew that some characters would already have been introduced. Despite that, I didn’t feel lost with the characters. As for the main character, Lucille, there were times that she made me laugh and times that she made me roll my eyes or cringe. I stilled enjoyed her and her silly antics. Reading about a middle aged woman solving crimes with no detective background to speak off really leaves you with a fun filled taste in your mouth. Overall, it was a very lighthearted read filled with humor. Eager es to read the other books in this series

Rating: 2/5
Brief synopsis: Quin is desperate to become a Seeker, a title that she has been training all her life to receive. However, when she finally achieves her goal, it is not the honorable and heroic job that she imagined it to be.

My thoughts: Upon reading the reviews made from other bloggers about this book, I hastily ignored them due to individual perferences. When I read that fans of The Hunger Games would enjoy this book, I was ecstatic to receive a copy. Sadly, right at the very beginning of the book, I saw flaws and felt confusuon. The characters are never really introduced properly, the time setting is completely confusing, and the description of certain elements and weapons leaves you with more questions than answers. At times, I was left wondering if I was reading the 2nd or 3rd book in a series. Unfortunatley, I was not able to finish it due to the confusion I felt throughout the book

Never smile at strangers book review

My rating: 2/5

  I tried to get into this book, honestly I did. Unfortunately,  I couldn’t. The pace was weird, the jumping around to different characters’ lives was choppy to say the least. Some characters were likable while some unfortunately were cringe worthy. Maybe I was expecting more from this book since I saw some good reviews about it. It just wasn’t my cup of tea, sadly. Has anyone else read this book? What are your thoughts about it?

Any book suggestions that I can add to my reading challenge?:)

Sooo…I’m in a little bit of a loss xD. My resolution for this year is to read 50 books. That wouldn’t normally be a problem since there are SO many amazing books out there…BUT…I can’t spend money on books at the moment due to an extremely strict budget :(…have any of you found any good freebies that you could suggest to little old me?:). So far I have 23 books on my list xD but I would like to have my list of 50 so that I can actually READ 50 books this year haha. Any suggestions or recommendations will be VERY much appreciated (: ok I’ll stop rambling lol

Water travelers: Heir of the unknown book review

Aaron, a water traveler, is heir to be be king in his kingdom of Upitar. Although he doesn’t want the responsibilities, he is willing to do whatever it takes in order to be a good future king for his world. That is until his father gives him an almost impossible mission. In order to become king, he must kill a human girl that was prophesied to destroy the waterways to his world. He hesitantly takes the mission. Once on earth he falls in love with a human girl, despite the difficulties. However, when a discovery is made, Aaron must make an impossible choice.

   Both of the main characters were extremely likable. The supporting characters were also very humorous and kept the story going. I was completely enthralled by this story and the difficulties and regret that Aaron had to face in order to break away from the responsibilities that were suffocating him.

I am extremely grateful that the author, Daniel Waltz, asked me to read this novel. It was a wonderful read with an ending that had me wanting to have the second book in my hands already! I truly recommend anybody who loves fantasy to read this novel! Plus it’s free..so READ IT haha

Throne of glass?

So I have been wanting to read this book for awhile bit I’m thrown off by the mixed reviews about the character and her maturity level :(. What are your opinions of this book fellow bloggers? Do you think I should give it a chance? Or do you think I should skip it for now? If you have read this book and series, did you like it? Why or why not?

Book that I am currently reading:the water travelers: heir of the unknown by Daniel Waltz 

Hit and Run book review

So yes I did rush through the book a little bit. The reason for this was because the story itself seemed a bit rushed and the names of the characters sometime jumbled together. However, the twists and turns were interesting and kept the book new. The story involves Delilah West, a P.I. struggling to make ends meet. She is almost run over by an uncontrolled car, but manages to escape. She finds a body in the middle of the street and assumes that the car must of hit the elderly gentlemen. Upon her word, the man is sent to jail. However, upon the mother’s insitence, she looks more into the case and begins to have second thoughts. As she delves deeper into the case, what she finds out is truly unexpected. This book contained romance, some wit, and humor.

Rushed book # 1 Book Review

image

So yay! I finished my first book of the year!!! ^…^ today I finished the book called Rushed by Brian Harmon. It tells the story of Eric, an ordinary high school teacher that has constant, recurring dreams that have him waking up with an urge to get up and drive or just go,go,go! Two nights in a row he chooses to ignore his almost violent compulsions, but on the third night, he cannot control it anymore. His at first seemingly innocent ride leads him to a barn, and soon into a journey that it is almost impossible to comprehend literally!
  Armed with only his cell phone as a “compass” , his dream that shows him the correct path, the encouragement of his wife Karen, and other interesting “people” along the way, he must somehow find his way to the cathedral. But why? And why is it so important that he gets there?
   From page one, this book had me intrigued. Before that, though, I found myself putting off this book for many weeks. I surprised myself that I finished 388 pgs in only 4 days! Filled with freaky animals, humor, originality, and adventure, this book will surely grab you by the throat!!

My thoughts on Net galley so far

Ok , so even though I mentioned that I became a member of net galley today, I will talk about my experience so far ( deal with it :P) Soooo..without further ado:

I LOVE IT!!! there are so many books that are available for instant download. In just a few hours I already found 10 read now books that I can’t wait to tear through. There are also books that are available via request. You must be approved by the publisher in order to receive it ( yes, you have to wait, and yes sadly you may be declined)

Expectations? In order to get more publishers to send you their books or invite you to read them, you must REVUEW REVIEW REVIEW. Post as many reviews as you can, and if you have a blog..even better!!

Soooo..I totally recommend this site! Because even if you have to wait for a requested book, there are plenty of “read now” books available to chew up your time. With thus amazing site, I definetly will not have much problems completing my challenge.

So why are you still reading this boring post? Go…NOW!!!

P.S. Once again, thank you readrantreview!

OK..Annoyance :×

So apparantley, bloggers can like my posts but they can’t comment on them. Yet I have checked the allow comments box under the discussion page, yet bloggers say they still can’t comment. Am I doing something wrong? I’ve contacted tech support and followed their instructions with no success :/

UPDATE: OK so without getting my hopes up…I THINK I solved the problems of bloggers not being able to comment on my posts * fingers crossed* now I sit back, wait and see if any comments pop up
