Tuesday Pub Day

TodayLilacGirls_eCard_1200-1200_C-v2 is a GREAT pub day to celebrate!!!  Lilac Girls is finally available to the masses. You all know how much I adored this book!  Seriously – why are you not reading it already??

This book is popping up on every major watch list and will certainly land itself on every best sellers list quickly.

Get It From Amazon



This week the hubs is on vacation so I’m not starting a new book.  I don’t quite know what to do with myself without a book!!  I have several reviews to put up so maybe that will keep me busy.  I’ve kind of been wandering around the house unsettled! But I’ve caught up on The Good Wife and some other neglected t.v. shows.

We have been working, well I’ve been supervising -HE’S been working, on cleaning the garage and starting to prep the back yard for spring.  Oh the Fun!!  Not really at all but it’s all stuff that needs doing.  Maybe fun will come later this week.

That’s all for today!  Have a good one!








Happy Leap Day!


This year we get a whole extra day!  I’m never sure if it should be just one more day or if you should approach Leap Day with a seize the day attitude.  Play hookie from work, picnic outside, do something fun and revel in 24 extra hours.


This year is less carpe diem and more laundry.  Sad, I know. But the hubs has returned from the latest business trip and dumped his weeks worth of laundry on the already growing pile of my own.



It is pretty nice outside and I’m hoping to take Simon out for a walk in his stroller.  He loves to get out and smell the air and chat with the neighbors.  He’d prefer to walk but we make him ride for his own good.

In book news this week:

I have finished a few new ones and all have been different shades of pretty good.


An advanced reminder that The Passenger by Lisa Lutz hits shelves tomorrow.  Be sure to snap this one up – it’s great and a big buzz book so far this year!



Spring is fast approaching and that means yard work, days in the sunshine and reading outside all afternoon.  I can’t wait for longer days and warmer weather!!

Happy Monday!




Awwww Sheet!

Today my Fed-Ex driver made me very happy.  Tomorrow he’ll do it again!


Before your imaginations run wild I’ll intervene and establish that he’s just delivering the new bed sheets I ordered!   I LOVE new sheets.  The newbies that arrived today are in the washer as I type.

Today in book news – it’s pub day for two new novels that I’ve shared with you!


Both of these are novels really worth the read.  Flight Of Dreams was excellent and I highly recommend it.  Check out my full reviews on Good Reads or walk on the wild side and just pick up that kindle and download them both.

The Sassy Cats are enjoying some rainy day laziness today.IMG_20160217_173839

I think I’ll make some hot tea and join them!  Blueberry black tea is one of my favorite teas to make!  Definitely  something I don’t want to be without. Find it at Bar Harbor Tea online.  I am dying to try the cranberry tea also!

Have a great Tuesday!

Today makes day 2 of a screaming headache.  It is a TOTAL pain in the ass to have your head pounding for two days.  The Sassy Cats, I’m sure, are sick of mommy’s Cat-itude.  Admittedly, I am grouchy.

Today, I did a special release-day spotlight for the book blog tour for The Widow.  Hope you had a chance to catch that one and I really hope you get the chance to pick up the book.

In even more literary news, today happens to be pub day for another book I have mentioned to you.   The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton hits shelves today. Check out my full review on Amazon or click over to Good Reads by following the link on the side bar.


Since I’ve been a little down and out there is not terribly much to share.  It’s nice and warm today compared to the last several and the clouds have finally departed.  I’m hoping they take the remains of my headache with them!

Happy Tuesday!



Blog Tour Post -The Widow



Happy Pub Day to Fiona Barton!!  Today, The Widow hits shelves and it is a novel you should not pass up.

You can check out all of my other reviews by hitting the Good Reads link on the side bar or of course, on Amazon!

My full review:


The Widow is one of those great novels that truly keeps you reading as fast as you can to find out what’s going on.  With little twists and turns tucked away in every corner, Fiona Barton truly holds on to her reader with every page turn.

Our main character is, of course, a widow, but she’s not just any widow.  Jean Taylor has the unfortunate notoriety of being married to a man suspected of abducting and killing a local missing girl. Jean and her husband Glen find themselves hounded by the media and outcast by the community.

Jean is a simple sort of girl and her world is shaken by the shame and shock that surrounds her husband being suspected of such a terrible act. Jeans world is torn apart when Glen meets his untimely demise.  Everyone wants to know exactly what Jean knows about her husband.  Does she give into the pressures of the media desperate for her story..or does she keep what she knows a secret?

It turns out Jean may not be the simple gal that everyone believes. Glens death isn’t such a tragedy after all., and just maybe…Jean wasn’t as clueless about her husband as everyone thinks.


A book that everyone will be buzzing about!  Grab your copy today!!



Tuesday Thoughts


HAPPY PUB DAY!!!  This awesome thriller novel hits shelves today! If you don’t have it yet, you should!!  Find Her by Lisa Gardner is easily going to stay as one of my favorites for the year.  Check out my full review on Good Reads or on Amazon.

Yesterday I started my first book on the new Voyage.  I really like it (the Voyage) so far!  There is nothing that is a huge difference from the Paperwhite 2013 that I upgraded from. However, I think all the small tweaks and improvements will add up to make a better overall reading experience.

Today is just a catch up day for some overdue book reviews! Lazy me, the pile has grown too high once again.

Happy Tuesday all!!
