Merry Christmas

I know I have been absent for the last couple of weeks but I will be back in the new year ready to read and review.
Till then...

Be well, drive safe and all the rest of it!

Happy Blog Hop Friday!

For this blog hop I was intending to have a review of Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead ready to post along with it... BUT
I don't want Vampire Academy to end! I know there is going to be a spin off type series but it wont be the same.
So you will have to wait until next week for that because I am reading 100 pages at a time to make it last just that little bit longer.

Any who... Lets get on with the hopping madness

As usual Miss Parajunkee has a feature blogger for us to all check out, Another Book Junkie does some good reviews and I have enjoyed checking out her blog today.
The question for this week is

Do you have an under-noticed author that you think we should all know about?

I still think Parker Blue is pretty cool. Only has two books out that I know of but they are great reads and I cant wait for the third to come out!
Check them out here Demon Underground series

Hippity Hoppity Hop!

I missed last weeks hop due to every day life taking over, so I am back this week and ready to hop again!

I have already hopped on over to Parajunkee's View and checked out her feature blog for the week and am going to answer her question below.

This week we are being asked

What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby??

To that I laugh and and then wonder what it is I really do with my life. 

Seriously though, I spend time with my kids, lots of time at the beach, and at the moment renovating my house takes up more than it;s fair share of my time!

 Book Blogger Hop

As soon as it is up I will also answer this weeks question from Crazy for Books as well.

Here it is...

 "What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"

 The second book in Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series was the one that really sticks out to me (One foot in the grave). It has had nothing but good reviews from everyone, and apparently chapter 32 was a must read. But I will be honest and say that when I saw someone mention chapter 32 I had to go back and see what they were on about. It wasn't what I expected from reading the first book and if/when I go on to read the third I really hope it blows me out of the water for giving it only 1.5 out of 5.

Happy blogging and reading book bloggers!

Waiting on Wednesday...

I have neglected my little blog for far too long. There is too much going on in my life right now but I am determined not to let that stop me posting.
I don't normally do the Wednesday meme simply because I read so many e-books that I generally don't have anything I am waiting on. But since it is coming up to Christmas I am now waiting on a bunch of things, mostly kids books but hell they count too!

First for my daughter...


She has some other books too, but only these that I am waiting on.

Then for my son...

 This is one that he borrowed from the library and loved so I figured it was a safe bet under the Christmas tree.

I saw this one in our local book store and it looked really fun (although a bit over priced at the shop, so I ordered online)
 Both of my kids LOVE this show! So I expect lots of messy fun times with this one.

There are 4 of these underpants books as far as I can tell, the first two are in the boot of my car waiting to be wrapped (it's my only hiding place from the kids.)

And just for me...

 I don't know if I should read it or create a shrine for it. I think I will just have to make sure the cover is plastic covered for fear of any drooling that might happen near it.
It's just a very pretty looking book :P

other things I am waiting on are replacement personalised Christmas baubles for the ones my dogs ate, and my NuSkin Vitality vitamins (not yet officially on the market, but come Jan-Feb I reckon everyone should at least try them! They do wonders for your energy levels.)

I will play around with my blog format tomorrow and try to get some new stuff up and posted over the next couple of days. Until then, happy blogging bloggers!
