I got to visit my local bookstore yesterday on my day off. I spent about an hour in there (I could live in there, to be honest) before I had to go on about my business. Anyway, I picked up three new books while I was there which you will find below. The second book shown, I just found out it is the first book in a series. I’m always happy to find that out, especially when I learn that the book I picked up is the first book. The first book shown is a standalone I found in the bargain section and the third book shown is just a collection of spooky stories which I usually like to read around Hall ..read more

Best books I read last year……

I read a lot of books last year, however, there are some that really stand out. I thought I’d share them here… The Mayfair Bookshop by Eliza Knight = I don’t do historical fiction all that often, however, I was glad I did with this book. This book peaked my interest because it is a book about books and about an author and about a bookstore….. But I found there was a so much more to this book when I read it. Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi = This is another book that was a little out of my comfort zone but I decided to give a shot after I spotted it at my local bookstore. If ..read more

I finished reading this book last night before I went to bed. I did enjoy the book as evident that it didn’t take long for me to read. What intrigues me about the story is that people are allowed to travel back in time to meet anyone they wish, however, they won’t be able to change the outcome of the present or their future by doing so. Plus, they have to drink their coffee before it gets cold while they are back in the past so they only have mere minutes to spend with the person they’re going to see. There are all kinds of rules for traveling back in time that the person has to follow or thin ..read more

I got some new books over the weekend. I always enjoy shopping for books. I could have spent all day in that store but my hubby showed back up at the store to pick me up for lunch. So, while he went to look at something in the sports section real quick, I got in line to pay for what I had. But, as always, I could have pitched a tent and just camped out at the book store. That’s my kind of place ..read more

I’ve been wanting to see this movie as soon as I saw the trailer for this. Well, my hubby and I went to see this movie today with my parents. This was a wonderful movie and I highly recommend it. There were several moments in the movie where we laughed and laughed, however, this movie is also one of those movies that has all the feels in it. If you are thinking of watching this movie then you should definitely watch it ..read more

I had gotten an Amazon gift card sent to me and almost forgotten about it till now (I had been busy with work and with the holidays). I was able to purchase some new e-books that were instantly downloaded to my Kindle Fire with my Amazon gift card. The e-books that I purchased are….. Animal Farm by George Orwell 1984 by George Orwell The Midnight Club by Christopher Pike I know it probably doesn’t look like a lot, however, these books have been on my wish list for a bit so they were stuff I have been dying to get for a while. I just finally had an excuse to get them when I received the Amazon ..read more

I have finished reading this today. I really enjoyed reading this and I almost cried at one point (you’ll figured it out when you read it). My only regret is that this is the last volume in the series. I didn’t want Miss Flora’s adventures with Creepy Cat to end. I wanted to read more when I got to the end of this book and now I’m sad that it’s over. Synopsis: Creep Up, Creep Out, Creep….Over? Flora has vanquished her enemies and settled into life in a haunted mansion with the interdimensional Creepy Cat–but one day Creepy vanishes Can Flora depend on Police Officer Oscar to find Creepy, or w ..read more

I finished reading this one and this one did not disappoint. I feel myself getting deeper in the story as I go along. The author, who is also the artist, is a good storyteller. They are good and dropping surprises everywhere throughout the story and I feel like we’re just really getting good in this third volume of the series. Synopsis: Catastrophe Looms in the Gloom Flora has settled into her haunted mansion with the increasingly bizarre and mischievous Creepy Cat It’s a nice life, if she can keep it, but what will Flora do when sneaky assassins come for her? Will she end up as one more ghos ..read more

I read this today. Despite the fact that I think this is geared towards younger audiences (says it’s for ages 10 and up), I find the story interesting. Although Flora and Creepy Cat are kind of the main characters, there are other things going on with other characters that Miss Flora and Creepy Cat frequently interact with. What began in the first volume has continued in the second volume and I hope to see what happens as the story continues….. Synopsis: A Most Peculiar Pet Now that she’s all moved in to the mysterious mansion, Flora discovers Creepy Cat’s incredible secret And what will beco ..read more
