Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira


Haunting but sad and beautiful all at once. Laurel receives an education in music love and loss. You'll need tissues when you read this.  One of the best books I've read in awhile.  Highly recommended.

Stacking the Shelves



I love Tynga's Reviews Stacking the Shelves  so I borrowed it for my blog.  I hit up my favorite used bookstores recently and hit the jackpot.  I was able to get four books from my wishlist.  First I picked up Chocolate-Covered-Murder by Leslie Meier.  I love this mystery series and have been reading it for awhile.  I really need to catch up.  I also was able to get Fallen-Masters by John Edward.  Yes that John Edward the TV psychic.  I usually don't read much science fiction but this intrigued me.  Next I picked up Waltz-Time by Eugenia Riley and If-Only-Dreams by Wendy Markham aka Wendy Corsi Staub.  These two are both time travel romances which are a favorite genre of mine.  I'll let you know how they are.  

Product Spotlight: Beyonce Heat Perfume


I bought Beyonce Heat Perfume for 50% off the day after Christmas.  I hadn't smelled it before I bought it but for $2,50 I could take a chance on it.  I loved it.  It is not too strong and the vanilla really comes through.  It is a really good choice to wear to work since it is not too overpowering.  This is a small bottle but even the bigger bottles are really affordable.  Let me know what you think of this scent and any others you love.  I provided the link to purchase above and again below.

Book Survey

Do you remember how you developed a love for reading? 
Both of my parents are huge readers so I am sure it came from them.  My earliest memories are of reading the Little house series and falling in love with them.  I also really loved the Trixie Belden mysteries. 

Where do you usually read? 
I love to read in the bath or cuddled up in my bed. 

Do you prefer to read one book at a time or several at once? 
Lately it seems I have a few books going at once since I read some for school and some for pleasure. 

What is your favorite genre? 
I don’t know if I have a favorite. I love thrillers like John Grisham and cozy mysteries such as Leslie Meier.  In the last few years I have found a love for YA, especially dystopian themed books.  I also love biographies and chick lit.

Is there a genre you will not read? 
I am a big chicken so I probably won’t read anything in the horror genre.

Do you have a favorite book? 
Picking one would be hard but I really love A Time to Kill by John Grisham. 

What is your least favorite book?

Recently I tried to read the book thief and just couldn’t finish it.

What is the longest book you have ever read? 
Maybe a biography on Tsar Nicholas II

What was the last book you bought?
A time travel romance, a guilty pleasure genre of mine.

Do you prefer library books or buying books? 
I prefer buying books. I am always afraid that I’ll borrow a book, love it, and want to keep it. 

What are you currently reading?
The Killer Angels by Shaara for school and the Lost Symbol by Dan Brown.  I am also reading Demi Lovato’s new book.
