Best of: Banned Books Weeks 2011

*Originally Posted Tuesday, September 27, 2011.


Seeing how it's the middle of the week I presume that you've heard about it being banned book week, although last year I thought it was a whole month. Is there such a month? I remember sometime last year I was talking to someone about reading To Kill a Mockingbird since it was banned book month. Or was it week?
Oh well...we're here now.


...I'm not that familiar with banned books.
It's true, so I've been hopping down the banned book trail and have found some pretty interesting books, turns out I really haven't read that many banned books.
Less than 10 maybe?
Although I did notice that a lot are on my to-read shelf, and I'll admit seeing them on that list is tempting me to read them sooner. So yeah that list is definitely doing it's job... that is if it's job is to get more people interested in those books.

Song(s) of the Moment [9/20]

Songs of the Moment is a bi-monthly feature I started where I pick a song that represents the week, day or month; that fits with a moment I recently had. Or that's been on repeat.


Songs on repeat.

LOVE PROFOUND by Kelly Elliott - Release Blitz




LOVE PROFOUND
COWBOYS & ANGELS Book 2 By Kelly Elliott
Standalone
Release Day - September 19, 2017

I write about love, but I’ve never experienced it. Sure, I’ve been with guys that I cared about. Even thought I found ‘the one’. He turned out to be the frog and not the prince.

A few Frank Sinatra songs and a wildly handsome cowboy who calls me Darlin’, will have me second guessing everything I ever thought I knew about love.

Does happily ever after really exist…or is it only something I write about in books?

Love Profound is book two in the Cowboys and Angels series.

Best of: My thoughts on The Idea of a 'The Luxe' Movie

*Originally Posted: Tuesday, September 13, 2011.

**Quick 2017 thought: This is why I don't like premature movie announcement. What happened?!
We get our hopes up for a movie that never happens. If it doesn't have a trailer or release date I don't want to hear about it. I would have said cast but as we've learned with past piloted shows (Delirium, The Selection) things don't always fly.**



Today's thought-full thought is brought to you by THIS article and the Bright, Young and Luxe giveaway. (Read the article it'll connect.)
I read this article in July so a lot of you have probably heard about it by now, if not well now you know, The Luxe is coming to the big screen.

Yay!? Boo!? I hope I'm not the only one conflicted with this news.

Hustler by Meghan Quinn & Jessica Prince - Book Review

29455417Hustler by Meghan Quinn &
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Published: May 9th 2016

I make my living as a hustler, and I’m great at it.
I don’t have a single tell and I use that to my advantage to manipulate any situation.
I’ve always known what a person is about to do before they’ve even decided.

That is, until I met Penelope.
I can’t get a read on her, and what’s worse, she doesn’t want anything to do with me.
Which only makes me want her more.

Now I’m in for the hardest hustle of my life.
Somehow I have to convince her she belongs with me.
Good thing I’m always up for a challenge.
