Weekly Confessions #1

I've decided to throw you all a curve ball and start a new post series called Weekly Confessions. This is where I will word vomit all the things that have been rolling around in my head all week. Like, the books I've read. Things that are going on in my life currently. Interesting posts I've found out in cyber space. Things like that. So here goes nothing. I hope you enjoy.

I've read a few books this week. Some for review and some for the enjoyment of reading. One of the books I reviewed was Force Ten: Doubling the Penny by Mark Shaff. I also got down and dirty with Stillhouse Lake by Rachael Caine (Creepy). A few books that I marked off my TBR pile are Steel ScarsCrown of Midnight (awesome), Lady Midnight, and Seeker. This week I'm hoping to read another Sarah J. Maas book, always an epic read.

My baby boy is turning four today. I can't believe how much he has grown over the last year and that he's my last baby. I usually have another baby by the time the last one is four. There will be no more for me. Sad. I've been blessed with three amazing boys, all with their own personalities and quirks. Happy Birthday Liam!

On Friday, the second book in my Hunter series dropped. Seeker is now available on Amazon and the Evernight Teen web page. Its doing really well on Amazon. #26 this morning in new releases. Please go and check it out and support your local authors.

Life has been a little crazy lately and my writing has suffered because of it. I did find time this week to put some words on paper. The weather has been so amazing that I sat out in the sun on lunch and worked on my new book about space aliens taking over the world. I feel like I'm about a quarter of the way done with it right now at 32K words. 

Had some awesome posts this week on the blog. Lots of reviews and wonderful books that I shared along with this weeks menu.

I came across some cool posts out there in the world of books and stuff this week. I thought I would share them with all of you. Enjoy.
That's it for this week. Let me know what you've been up to in you life, books and places you visited or want me to visit. Leave it all in the comments below. Until next week.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
