Duck Race Weekend

HI! I just wanted to throw in a little nugget here. The Duck races are this weekend. Here is the link if anyone is curious.

Want to race a duck?
They do that on land or in water...

Want Funnel Cake??? (Oh Yes I do!) Lol
That particular pastry is in abundance. (Yay!)

Want a new T-Shirt with a cool duck on it???

It really is a fun time. Check it out. Right on down to the chili judging and the tortilla toss...

Review of Restoration by Elaine D. Walsh


** I was given a copy from the publisher for review**

This was a very frustrating read for me. It was well written, don't get me wrong, but I felt as if I was waiting for something to happen, and it really didn't.

I liked the book. Tess seemed like a great lady. Did I bond with her? No. I never really "felt" this story. While Tess was keeping her distance from everyone, I also felt she was distant from me. I was never able to say "you go Tess," or "give 'em hell Tess," or anything. The closest I came to getting a glimpse of a fantastic woman, was when she was describing to Francesca how seeing the Raphael made her feel. That was great.

I know this is one that I will be in the minority on, but this one was just ok for me. I put it at 2.5 stars.

Review of Conjure House by Gary Fry

Conjure House by Gary Fry

** I was given a copy from the publisher** Thank you

Conjure House grabbed hold of me from the very beginning, and it never did let go. Even still, I find myself thinking about certain passages in the book.

Conjure won't let you get off of the edge of your chair. I enjoyed this horror/ sci-fi mix. Definitely a must read. I am looking forward to reading more of Mr. Fry's work!

Manson: The Life and Times of Charles Manson

I kind of jumped the gun on this review and I APOLOGIZE PROFUSELY!!! Please forgive me!!! Please, please, please forgive me, Mr. Guinn!!!! 

It was very kindly pointed out to me that this was an advanced copy, which would be full of errors (sometimes). Anyway, with everything (crap) that has been going on here, I forgot to check the release date, and judged it too critically. SO I AM GOING TO GO BACK AND re-read this one and post another review. I would hate for someone to miss a great book because of me. APOLOGIES!!!! PUTTING THIS BACK ON MY CURRENTLY READING LIST!!!!

Will be back soon with an updated review!

My Review of Tin Gods by Stacy Green

** I was given a copy from the author for an honest review**
I just finished reading Tin Gods by Stacy Green.
OMG! Stacy is sooooo very talented. This book makes you feel, not only feel, but FEEL along with Jaymee.   She was forced into giving her baby up for adoption when she was younger, and this is the story of her trying to find her baby. There are  a lot of obstacles and mysteries surrounding the adoption, including murder!

Definitely a must read!

Review of Doors by Daniel Brako


Where to start here???

A gentleman comes into his doctor's office and tells him that he sees doors everywhere... Who doesn't right???

Well the doors he sees are not doors that everyone can see... Let it alone, enter. So the good doctor says the magic words, (I'm definitely paraphrasing here) and... voila`, he can see the doors also. He can even enter.

OH the consequences this brings!!! Not all doors are good...

Definitely worth a read. The beginning dragged a bit or me, but it usually does, taking time to establish characters and all that... Lol 
The twists are many, and you won't believe where this one goes!

Sci-Fi lovers are going to eat this one up!

Review of Ember X by Jessica Sorensen

Ember X (Death Collectors, #1)

** I received a copy from the publisher**

This one will keep you guessing right up until the end!
Ember is a teenager who, when she touches someone, she is able to see their death. She has had this ability since she was 4. Needless to say, she avoids contact as much as possible, until she meets Asher... 

Absolutely a must read!
