Hello Everyone!

So as you may have noticed, I have been missing since February. My apologies. I have been battling some serious health issues and they completely sidelined me. This past week, I finally was able to return to work and this evening, I was finally able to sit at my desk and begin working again from home. Since April 1st, I had not been on the computer, but as of tonight, all of my emails are caught up. WHEW!

Some good news for you:

1. I believe most of the issues have been fixed on my website. I am still working on the weekly newsletter, but I should have that up and running soon. All my reviews should be visible and you can leave comments again. I am testing the website on numerous platforms, but I think that I have corrected everything. Yay!!!!!

The Goal versus Reality

Hi Everyone,

As you know, the goal was to post 100 reviews, before the end of the year. Well, it is New Year’s Eve, and 12 have been posted. I know this sounds like an epic failure, and I agree. However, due to complications from my website… this is the reality. I am still working on getting things corrected, which reminds me… If you do not see the 10 reviews posted today, please hit refresh. They are there.

Tomorrow, I am still planning on announcing the exciting changes and the fun things that will be happening here. Along with that, I will continue to post the remainder of my reviews. Hopefully soon, I can come on here and tell you that the site is 100% fixed and reviews will be flying your way each day.

In the meantime, I must get ready for the fireworks and hopefully my boy will be relaxed enough with our routine, that we can enter 2017, seizure-free.

Happy New Year!

Website Issues, Christmas, and a Promise

Hi Everyone,

How are you? I hope you are having a lovely holiday season. A dear friend gave me a copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which I look forward to reading in the new year. What book(s) did you receive this year?

As you know, the website developed an issue on November 8th, and sadly things are still not 100% correct. I know the weekly newsletter did not get received by most of you, and I am still working with support on this matter, as well as a few other things. My sincerest apologies to you all.

Due to the newsletter not going out, I have held off on posting reviews, in hopes that things would be 100% fixed. Have no fear, I still plan on ending 2016. There will be 98 reviews posted in the next three days! Hopefully everything will be corrected in the new year.

So for tonight, tell me what you are looking forward to in 2017.

Enjoy!

The Past, Present, and Future!

Hi Everyone,

The past few weeks have been brutal, health wise. I was too weak to read at the beginning, and there have been a lot of naps during the day, which is not like me. I did finally manage to watch the four new episodes of the Gilmore Girls… and let’s just say that I am still processing my feelings.

The present: This weekend I was able to get back in the flow of reading. Plus, I have managed to complete all emails and I finally have empty inboxes. YAY!  Since, the new Gilmore Girls episodes only contained information about 1 single book… I have added it to the challenge page.

The Future!!!

Well now, here’s the fun and exciting news. Yes, several news items. So hold on tight:

  1. Over the course of the final weeks of this year, I will be posting 100 book reviews. Yes, my friends, you read that right! 100 Book Reviews over the next 20 days. We are going to end 2016, with a BANG! I hope you all enjoy. 🙂 Continue reading

Hello

Hi Everyone,

The website is finally back in action! Whew, this has been one heck of a week! Thanks for all of your patience.

Take a look around at some of the new updates and pages. As I have mentioned before, there will be a few changes/surprises starting in 2017. Also, since it is now November, there is a new issue of Sasee Magazine out, so make sure to check out the Sasee page. (Book lovers will definitely want to read this month’s recommendation.)

In the meantime, hold on to your reading chair, book reviews are headed your way… FINALLY! 🙂

Enjoy!

Voting, Site Problems, and More

Hi Everyone,

Today started out on a nice, positive note. I was able to get some housework completed, before turning on my computer. As I went to my site, to start sharing reviews, everything went downhill. My site was down for several hours as maintenance occurred, trying to fix a few hosting errors. After everything was fixed, or so I thought, I breathed some fresh air, by going and voting. When I got home, I even voted on the semifinals in the Goodreads awards. Now, I am back online and ready to start sharing reviews…

One problem, though…

It seems a few hundred of my followers been misplaced in the hubbub of today. Now I am working on correcting this, as well as a few minor other things. Hopefully soon, all the kinks will be worked out and everything will be back on track.

Thanks for your patience.

Enjoy!

Manic Monday

Hi Everyone,

How did you all do during the clock change? Did you enjoy the extra hour of sleep or are you still trying to get your bearings? Last week, I had two severe migraines in less than four days, which seriously cut back on my reading time. Saturday night, not only did I enjoy the chance to get a bit more rest, I also have enjoyed the major shift in the weather. The air has finally cooled enough to open the windows and air out the home. YAY! I will be online for most of the day tomorrow, updating the site with plenty of reviews. I hope you all will enjoy them.

In the meantime, tell me what is your favorite thing about Autumn?

Enjoy!

A Quick Update!

Hi Everyone,

I cannot believe we are nearing the end of the month! Pure craziness! On Sunday, the boys and I celebrated Mom’s birthday and yesterday, I had a fun time with the Sasee Facebook Book Club.

Today, I am online and making a few changes. Be on the lookout, as things will appear different on the site soon. I even have a few plans in place for 2017! 🙂

Also, more reviews are headed your way.

In the meantime, tell me what you have been reading this week?

Enjoy!

Hurricane Matthew

Hi Everyone,

I am sure you may have heard by now that there is a hurricane named Matthew gracing the US coastline, with his presence. My boys and I want everyone to know that our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this horrific storm. Hurricane Matthew has caused a lot damage in places and we hope that everyone remains safe and sound through the duration of this storm.

My boys, Mom and I have been prepping all week for Hurricane Matthew’s arrival. The boys and I have our stacks of books ready and waiting, plus my tablet is charged to read as many ebooks as possible, before the battery runs out. I have two book lights for reading, so we are set! 🙂 I will be back online as soon as possible, to let you know how many books we managed to conquer! Reviews will soon follow. I have several pending for next week. 🙂

We hope everyone stays safe and our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by Matthew.

Stay safe and Happy Reading!

Enjoy!
