Book's I'm Thankful For | Top 5 Wednesday


It's top 5 Wednesday! I love this series. It really makes me dig deep into why I love a book or hate a book. There is really no limit to what you can come up with.

Today's topic is Book's I'm thankful for. This one was hard for me to come up with 5 picks. If you really think about it. What would you be thankful for with fantasy books. They give us a great story, but its not that my life would have changed much by reading it. I really had to dig deep and come up with some awesome picks for you.

Let's get to it!

1. Jade Green - I'm thankful for this book because it was the first book I've ever read from front to back in one sitting. It started me on my journey through the paranormal and helped me fall in love with reading. It was one of the first books I've ever owned, although that copy was eaten by a rabbit, I now have a new copy sitting on my shelf.








2. Hunter - This one holds a special place in my heart because it was the first
book that I ever had published. Hunter started my journey as an author, and lead to several other books and hopefully a life long publishing journey.

3. Sabriel - Garth Nix was the first author that I ever fell in love with and to this day is one of my favorites. I've added more favorite authors over the years, but Garth Nix and Sabriel will always hold a special place in my heart.









4. A Court of Thorns and Roses - I am thankful for Sarah J. Mass. She has
shown me that a woman can write something unique and sensual, but still tasteful. I will always admire this author.

5. Crimson Sky - I am thankful for Amy Braun and her encouragement and friendship. The world of authordom can be a lonely place and I've been blessed to know this author and share in her triumphs with this series.










I am thankful for many things this Thanksgiving. Family, a great job, a roof over my head and wonderful books to fill my shelves. What are your top 5 picks this Wednesday? Leave me your comments below.

The Girl With All the Gifts | Movie Review

Summary from IMDB: A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie.
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…
