Christmas Gifts *Books* 2012


     Sadly the Holidays are over. All that hype and planning and it is over in one day. Needless to say I had an amazing Christmas with my family and I am so grateful for everything that I have. There is nothing better than spending time with family, eating, and seeing your loved ones open gifts and seeing the looks on their faces.

     A lot happened this month. I graduated from College with my Bachelor's Degree. (Finally) :) I decided not to walk at Graduation but instead I took a trip with my boyfriend to St. Augustine, & we had a great time. It was nice to get away & it was a place we've always wanted to visit.

(This is me at the fort in St. Augustine.)
Now for the point of this blog. BOOKS!! I got a lot of nice things for Christmas including books, which I was really excited about.

I was super excited when I got the Walking Dead, The Road to Woodbury book. The Walking Dead is a great series & I am really excited to start the book series by Robert Kirkman. This is the 2nd book in the series. The first one is called The Rise of the Governor.
I also got the Watersong series by Amanda Hockings. I only have the first 2 books which are Wake & Lullaby. I believe she is currently writing the 3rd book now & I know there will be a 4th one too. I will most likely start these books right after I finish the 2 I'm currently reading.
& who can forget my Leslie Meier books. I love her writing & I was really surprised how much I enjoyed the Trick or Treat Murder book by her. She has a whole series of these. I received Mother's Day Murder, English Tea Murder, Star Spangled Murder, St. Patrick's Day Murder, and Wicked Witch Murder. I love reading her Holiday Murder Books during the Holidays.
 
& I also got If She Only Knew by Lisa Jackson. I found this book when I was browsing the book section in Target (which I do about 3 times a week) & I came across this book & it seemed really interesting. This book was also exclusively to Target and I did some research and there is a 2nd one that is already out too which makes me happy.
 
I hope everyone had an amazing Holiday & Happy Reading!

So it's November 1st. So excited to celebrate my birthday with my family in a week, & hopefully get some new books!

Every so often I try to find free books on my nook. I love my nook & I also love paper books too, But sometimes I don't always bring my paper books with me, & that's where my nook comes in. Plus I have an app on my phone for the nook & since I always have my phone I can read pretty much anywhere.

I always am reading a book on my nook & a paper book at the same time.

So here are some nook books that I found that are FREE & that seemed interesting to me..... Enjoy

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

    So it's Halloween, and what am I doing? Absolutely nothing. So far we haven't had that many trick or treaters. And I'm busy eating all of the Reese's, My Favorite! This month has flew by. We ended up not carving a pumpkin this year. Time just got away from us.
    
     I love watching scary movies on Halloween, or just in general. I think I have actually seen the Halloween movie at least 6 times, thanks to my b/f who is a Scary movie maniac. He loves them including Freddy & Jason among many others. But movies I loved when I was younger was Hocus Pocus & Halloweentown. Halloweentown was on the Disney Channel. Hey I was born in the 80's & the movie was pretty good when I was younger. lol


     One thing I have always wanted to do is a corn maze. It would be so much fun but also creepy & a little scary all at the same time. Has anyone done one?? I don't know but something about Halloween brings the kid out inside of me. Anyways one day I will do this!

& I wish it was cold enough to have warm apple cider. I love this stuff!
 
I hope everyone had an amazing Halloween!! Until next time. =)

What I Love about Fall!

      Fall is my favorite time of year. Something about it just makes me happy. I love the cool weather plus all of the fall scents, colors, Halloween decorations, and I get to wear boots. I live in Florida so cold weather is very hard to come by. The only thing missing is seeing the leaves change.

Plus I had to get a good Halloween book in there. The book I'm currently reading is the Trick or Treat Murder by Leslie Meier. I got this book last year during the month of October but I never got around to reading it. I love myself a good mystery, especially if I'm curled up reading & drinking hot coco. So far this book is pretty good.
I love fall candles as well. Nothing like having your house smell like delicious bakery scents. And did I mention Pumpkin Pie, My favorite!

Another great book I read for October was Fang Girl by Helen Keeble. I actually won this book on Goodreads which was really exciting! This book was fast paced & a great laugh. The characters were so funny & it had a lot of action. It was basically about a girl who wakes up in a coffin to realize that she is now a vampire. Jane is trying to adjust to her new vampire body & her blood cravings, while being attacked by vampire hunters who would do anything to see her dead. Throughout her ordeal she is constantly entertaining.

The Brown House

The Brown House by: Christy Sloat


     I wished I would have read this book in October for my to be read book list. This book was amazing & absolutely creepy. This book was fast paced all the way through and I love books like that. This book was a great Paranormal read.

Did I mention that this book is a series? I cannot wait until the 2nd book comes out. I emailed the author and asked her when the 2nd book is coming out and she said next Summer/ Spring 2013. And the book is going to be called The Red Key.

Brylee is the main character in this book. Her dad looses his job and her and her parents have to move to New Jersey into this creepy looking brown house. Everyone in her school is so surprised when they find out that someone is actually living in that house and they tell her that it's Haunted! While exploring the house Brylee meets a girl named Lyn, who tells her that the house is haunted.

*SPOILER ALERT* Kayla is actually a ghost. I guessed this way at the beginning of the book because it was obvious that no one else could see her & she kept disappearing really fast.

Weird & scary things start to happen in the house. She then meets her neighbors named Lyn & her brother Ephriam. They are around the same age as her & Lyn informs Brylee that her house is CURSED! Brylee & Lyn become really good friends & she soon start to date  her brother Ephraim. She has her 2 best friends to share all of her ghost haunting incidents with.

They try to break the curse together and to help the ghosts to finally find peace but things get from BAD to WORSE...

Now the 2 people she cares about most are the ones who are now cursed.
Time is running out & if she doesn't find a solution soon she will loose her best friend & boyfriend forever....

Until the next book. Happy Reading!   =)

1st Blog Post!

     Hey Everyone!! Welcome to my Book Blog. I am so excited to start this new project. I've been thinking about creating a blog now for books for a while, but I just never got around to it. I'm going to share with you some of my favorite book series & authors on this blog. I hope you all enjoy!

     I love books, however I am very picky when it comes to certain genres and I usually stay in my norm. I love mystery/thrillers, and YA books too. I also just recently created a goodreads account. Why I never found the website sooner, I have no idea. But I am glad that I came across it!

     So one of my favorite series:

The IVY: by Lauren Kunze with Rina Onur. This series is amazing which includes:
    
  •     The IVY
  •     Secrets
  •     Rivals
  •     Scandal    <---- Which doesn't come out until December of 2012, But I'm excited.

This series is about a girl named Callie Andrews from California who gets into Harvard. There's lots of boys, secret societies, elite parties, best friends turn enemies, & of course.....DRAMA*** I am obsessed with the series, and a lot of other girls would say the same thing.
I will later do a book review on these. But lets just say I hope the 4th book isn't the last. I can't get enough of it.
     & did I mention the authors actually attended Harvard themselves! Pretty cool, especially when they are talking all about the different buildings on campus. The authors say this series is based off of their time in college at Harvard, but they won't reveal how much of the story is actually true.
