Some recent pre-order specials I’ve received.


My pre-order special posts have been pretty popular and I plan to make another one soon.  Today I thought I would share some pictures of some of the items I’ve received.  It’s one thing to read about what you receive, but seeing it might convince some of you to give it a try.  I know that pre-orders help authors and I appreciate these specials that so many of them have.



Getting a personalized thank you from the author really makes my day.  This is the special from Rebecca Ross (she also had a big giveaway, but I didn’t win).

February 2018 Wrap Up


I’m actually surprised that I finished as much as I did in February.  I barely read on vacation, so it took me over a week to finish one book.  Somehow I managed to read a lot this week.  Probably because I have been sick and didn’t do much around the house.  I ended up reading 8 books and finishing 1 audiobook (listened to in the car with my husband) for a total of 9 books for February.  My blog also did pretty well.


First I’ll share my blog stats.  I want to start doing this monthly to see how things are going.  I’m hoping to keep improving on the numbers.  This month was shorter, but the numbers are still good.

Joining two challenges/games for March


I have decided to do two challenges for March.  I’m not really changing my books to fit the challenges.  I’m just hoping that I can do ok with what I need to read and review.  I think that most of the books will fit in these challenges anyway.




First one is from Life & Lit on facebook.  This is a women’s history month bingo and each book can count for 2 squares.
