My review for Night Shift by Charlane Harris

4 out of 5 stakes!

This last book which I really hope it’s not the last book in this little series. Because we find out a whole lot about everyone in this little town of Midnight. We see what the reasons are for everyone coming there. We knew Manfred’s reason. We also meet a new person. Olivia and Fiji become I guess maybe actual friends. Some secrets come out in this book about everyone as well. The town comes together to get rid of the evil, however they find out they are all key players in some way to stop it. Book moved a little slow at first, but once things started happening it went by fast. I like that this one more so then the other two told the points of everyone in town.

My review for Dayshift by Charlane Harris

4 out of 5 stakes!

As if this book couldn’t suck you in even more then the first one. This one we learn a little bit more about the midnighters. Which I love. Because I’m curious about their past and who they are. Manfred finds himself in a little bit of trouble in this second book. One of his clients dies in the middle of helping her. From there he is accused of stealing from the woman and maybe murder… And that’s just the start of it. Soon the town gets more people moving in because the hotel redone. A mystery there in itself. And the rev has an unexpected guest. The town really comes together again in this one. So much goes on that before you know it, it’s done.

My review for To all the boys I’ve loved before by Jenny Han

4 out of 5 stakes!

I enjoyed this book for what is a young adult story. Which I love YA books. I gave it 4 stars, because first off how can the main character Lara Jean just stop trying to figure out how those love letters got mailed out? And if she loved the hat box her mother gave her so much why didn’t she press her dad more about it?? Or even look everywhere in the house and maybe just maybe ask Josh to help out? But okay maybe she admitted to herself well what’s done is done? I felt bad that her love letters got mailed out, especially to Josh her sister’s ex. I was thinking oh no that letter was so long ago now what will be think? Then there is Peter, I don’t know if he really likes Lara Jean or not? I mean it’s all suppose to be fake right? I will be reading the next two books to see how everything turns out. This book is cute and some funny parts.

My review for Anne of the Island By L.M. Montgomery Narrated By Colleen Winton

5 out of 5 stakes!

This is another audio book which I love it. In this 3rd book Anne and a few college friends rent a house together instead of boarding at someone’s house. They find a place not far from their college so it works out for them. Everyone is being courted in this book and finding adult life kind of hard.

When Anne goes home for a visit she see’s some of her childhood friends but realize lots has change over the year away at school. A dear friend passes away. And Diana is getting married.

I think Anne really struggles with herself a lot in this book. With trying to become a writer and holding on to friendships. Anne and Gilbert end up getting distant again. Because Anne doesn’t feel the same way about him as he does her. She ends up being courted by a rich young man whom she feels she is in love with. Anne’s friends are happy for her, however some are holding out for Gilbert.

When there is a rumor going around that Gilbert is engaged to another female, Anne doesn’t want to admit she is jealous. She compares herself to the female. Anne’s take on everything I think gets in the way of her finding out she does belong with Gilbert. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series to see what else Anne gets herself into and if she marries Gilbert.

About the Audiobooks Author: L.M. Montgomery Narrator: Colleen Winton Length: 10 hours 7 minutes; 9 hours 5 minutes; 8 hours 20 minutes Publisher: Post Hypnotic Press⎮2014 Genre: Classics Series: Anne of Green Gables, Books 1-3

Synopsis of Book 3:

Anne of the Island was published in 1915, seven years after the best-selling Anne of Green Gables, partly because of the continuing clamor for more Anne from her fans – a fan base that continues to grow today! In this continuation of the story of Anne Shirley, Anne leaves Green Gables and her work as a teacher in Avonlea to pursue her original dream (which she gave up in Anne of Green Gables) of taking further education at Redmond College in Nova Scotia. Gilbert Blythe and Charlie Sloane enroll as well, as does Anne’s friend from Queen’s Academy, Priscilla Grant. During her first week of school, Anne befriends Philippa Gordon, a beautiful girl whose frivolous ways charm her. Philippa (Phil for short) also happens to be from Anne’s birthplace of Bolingbroke, Nova Scotia. Anne, always the good scholar, studies hard, but she also has many life lessons. This book sees Anne leave behind girlhood to blossom into a mature young woman.

Release day Launch for P.S. I love You By Jamie Salisbury: Giveaway information,buying links,author information all below:

P.S. I LOVE YOU Synopsis:

First love is always better the second time around. Basil Manning is happy with his life now that he’s given up on love. He has everything he needs…the houses he’s building, the mansion he’s renovating, and his Bernese Mountain Dog, Crash. In spite of his mother’s insistent attempts to see him married, Basil plans on staying a bachelor. That is, until he finds himself face-to-face with the woman who once broke his heart. Healing from a long-term relationship that turned abusive, Meg Cooper has flung herself into running her eclectic shop, The Pink Moose. She can’t afford complications, and the too-hot-for-his-own-good Basil Manning, her one time almost fiancé, is definitely a complication.

But that irresistible pull between them isn’t over…not by a long shot. If she’s not careful, she’ll break both their hearts…again.

Exclusive Excerpt:

I stood, touching my lips as I watched from the back door of my apartment as Basil’s truck pulled out of the parking lot. He kissed me! He told me he was going to, and my God, he kissed me with enough passion for ten men. But I spooked or something. It didn’t feel like it was the right thing to do and I asked him to stop, knowing where things would have ended up. The feelings were still there, but somehow different. We were both adults now. We’d both experienced sex on our own and were no longer the two naïve teenagers we once were. Something from that kiss told me once I let him in, he’d be there for me always. Was this what I wanted? The familiar ping of my phone beckoned me back to reality. I pulled it out of my purse and stared at the screen. Dinner tomorrow? It’s Saturday. You can meet Crash, and I have something of interest to show you at the old house. R U texting and driving, young man? I grinned at my comeback as I hit Send. Not to worry. I pulled over.

You have me curious, and I would love to meet Crash. I’ll call you after I pick up dog and get him settled at home. I tapped my nail against the phone, pondering my reply. I’ll be waiting. Hearts and happy-face images followed. I wandered deeper into my apartment, setting my purse down on the kitchen table. I still had the bottle of water he’d given me at his place.

I took it along with my phone into the living room and sank into the comfy couch. It suddenly dawned on me—someone had been in the apartment. The lid to my laptop was open, something I never did. But who? Worst yet, were they still here? I grabbed the baseball bat I kept by the back door and tiptoed through the apartment.

I opened every closet, peered under the bed and behind doors until I was satisfied I was alone. My nerves were rattled by the idea of someone being brazen enough to trespass into my private domain. But who? Time to get the locks changed. Better still, time to perhaps consider installing a security system both in the apartment and the shop.

My review for Infusion Alyssa Thiessen 5 out of 5 stakes!

Infusion is one of these great books that you can’t put down. For me it was like come on Rachel remember what exactly happened that night you were shot. While in the hospital she starts having what she thought we’re dreams but are another reality. Everyone keeps asking her why her best friend would shoot her? But then Rachel starts noticing a difference in her, she senses what people are feeling

when she touches them. Brushing it off as a I already know people feel sad about what has happened. But then she goes to school and meets Tyler a guy everyone says is weird. Rachel wants to know why he’s even talking with her. Tyler then starts asking her questions about the night she was shot and says are you already healing quicker then normal?

That’s when Tyler introduces her to other things, and others like them. Rachel learns with her new secret powers she must save the world from creatures only her and her friends can see.

This book has some twist and you find yourself thinking wow I want more. A very quick read as well so you are for sure thinking I need book # 2 please.

Infusion by Alyssa Thiessen Publication Date: November 13, 2016 Publisher: Peasantry Press.

Rachel is ordinary. Average. Utterly unremarkable… until her best friend shoots her on her 16th birthday and a stranger brings her from death’s doorstep with an infusion of his own DNA. Then everything gets weird. She heals impossibly fast. She senses the thoughts of others. She sees places and horrifying creatures that couldn’t possibly exist, and her new friend Tyler is convinced she’s destined to save the world from their invasion. Can she trust him? Can she trust herself? How’s she supposed to stop inter-dimensional invaders when she can barely deal with high school? Ready or not, here they come.

AUTHOR INFO:

When she’s not donning her secret identity and saving the world, Thiessen keeps busy writing her next novel, reading something beautiful, teaching high school English, drinking coffee, cycling, and hanging out with her family – husband, kiddies, and miniature schnauzer.

My review for Rules of Persuasion

By Amity Hope

5 out of 5 stakes!

This book has lots of funny moments. I fell in love with this book and couldn’t put it down. Meg and Like are amazing characters. This book is told from two points of views. We meet Meg first, her home life isn’t the greatest and the way she deals with it is great and not so great at the same time. Before long she gets busted by Luke. That’s when things turn really interesting and kind of fun. Luke decides hey he could really use Meg’s help to get rid of an ex girlfriend. Luke comes up with a plan for Meg to be a fake girlfriend. But Meg isn’t having none of that nonsense until Luke decides blackmail is the way to go. Meg decides to agree and that’s when the rules come up. Meg thinks hmm there has to be something secretive about spoiled rich Luke that she can use against him. But what they don’t realize is they actually need each other and that’s where the fun and feelings start.

Too bad now a certain infuriating boy holds Meg’s future in his hands… When Luke Prescott—star pitcher and town golden boy—catches Meg vandalizing the school, she’s given two choices: face the consequences or enter into a fake relationship with him to get his parents and his ex off his back. But as Meg and Luke grow closer, they both realize they’ve been keeping secrets from each other. Their fake relationship might be doomed from the start—if they can’t learn to open up to the one person they never thought they’d trust.

Review by Emmyjo for Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery

I give this book 5out of 5 stakes!

This book is an adventure as we follow Anne on more fun and great times. Now in this second book Anne becomes a young teacher. Anne tries to win over all of her students, but as a few months goes by she realizes it’s harder then she thinks. Anne and Marilla adopt two 6 year old twins. They prove to be a handful and a lot of fun. Also we see Gilbert kind of confess in his thoughts how much he likes Anne. Anne of course doesn’t know. We also see Anne growing up a lot more and thinking more and more about college. I don’t want to give away anything more.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Post Hypnotic Press. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Synopsis of Book 2: Following Anne of Green Gables (1908), this book covers the second chapter in the life of Anne Shirley. We learn of Anne’s doings from the age of 16 to 18, during the two years that she teaches at Avonlea school. It includes many of the characters from Anne of Green Gables, as well as new ones: Mr. Harrison and his foul-mouthed parrot, Miss Lavendar Lewis, Paul Irving, and the twins Dora (sweet and well behaved) and Davy (mischievious and in constant trouble). Anne matures, slightly, but she gets into a number of her familiar pickles, as only Anne can: She accidentally sells her neighbor’s cow (having mistaken it for her own), gets stuck in a broken duck house roof while peeping into a pantry window, and more.

My review for Midnight Crossroad ( Midnight Texas # 1) by Charlaine Harris

I i

4 out of 5 stakes I give this book.

This book is great. Read it because I wanted to check out the show. Manfred did annoy me a couple of times though. Because I was thinking if you truly have the gift then use it right. Manfred moves into this small town and before he knows it he’s involved indirectly in a murder case among other things. But all he’s really interested in doing is making money from his physic ability and try to find a way to get to know Creek more. The town is full of secrets and magical things I think. Can’t wait to get into the next book.
