Hope you all are having a great weekend! I’ve been reading a lot this week, and I’ve already read 3 of my Kindle purchases, so I should pump some more reviews out next week when I have time. I won’t have too much time, since I’ll be packing after I get off work each day. I found a place about 3 minutes from my sister, so that is a good thing. It’s just… I have to get used to having neighbors close by. I’ve quite enjoyed living outside the city limits, because it’s so peaceful. This move will actually allow me to be there for my sister, sleep an extra 30-45 minutes, and save gas. My job is less than ten minutes away. Well, if I don’t mind not driving the speed limit 🙂 Wish me luck!

What books did you add to your shelves this week?

Kindle Kandy #1

Kindle Kandy Plain

Kindle Kandy is a Friday weekly meme, hosted by The Book Dame, that spotlights books on our ereaders that we have had for a while, but have yet to read.

This is my first KK, and I have waaaay too many books that I have not read on my Kindle. To pick one is impossible, so I’ll just start off with 2 for now. These 2 have been waiting to be read for years now, and I’m sort of ashamed to have not given them my attention. *Covers link to Goodreads*

9219239College freshman Leesa Nyland has been fascinated by vampires since she was three years old. That’s when her mom started acting weird, refusing to go outside during the day and insisting the sunlight hurt her skin because she had been bitten by a one-fanged vampire…

But fascinated doesn’t mean Leesa believes—any more than she believes in blue fire, people who live for centuries, and kisses that can kill. When her beloved older brother suddenly disappears, she is forced to confront all these and more.

17410908Jade loves her new apartment-until a ghost joins her in the shower.

When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn’t count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord.

Being an empath has never been easy on Jade’s relationships. It’s no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it’s up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her. Except she’ll need Kane’s help and he’s betrayed her with a secret of his own to do it. Can she find a way to trust him and herself before Pyper is lost?

There are maybe a thousand more distributed between my 3 ereaders and computer. I’m trying to do better! I was thinking doing a spreadsheet to organize them all and start with the oldest to newest. Hopefully, these 2 aren’t that far down on the list because I really want to get to them soon. What Kindle Kandy have you got to share? Come on people, don’t be selfish!

Stacking The Shelves #7


stacking the shelves

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, that highlights the books we’ve acquired to read. It doesn’t matter if they are purchased, checked out from the library, won, borrowed, or received for review. I only got a couple this week, as I’m not requesting books from Net Galley until I’ve read some of the ones on my shelf. I did, however, purchase a couple and even DL a few freebies from Amazon.

For Review


Cinderella’s Dress by Shonna Slayton From Entangled Teen

Samantha Sanderson At The Movies by Robin Caroll From Zonderkidz 

*I’m excited to read Samantha Sanderson with my 12 yr. old cousin. She will be out for the Summer and is starting the Summer Reading Program at the library. So she asked if reading this book with me will count towards her reading goal, even though she didn’t check it out from the library and they told her yes. She squealed like a banshee!!*
