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! πŸ™‚

Also, more reviews are headed your way.

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

Enjoy!

Two important items…

Hi Everyone,

This week, I learned about two different, things. One, very important and a good cause. While the other, will be a lot of fun! What do these two things have in common?
Excellent, must-read, books, of course!!!

 

First up, Kristy Woodson Harvey is donating proceeds from the sales of her books to help Hurricane Matthew victims. As you know, I love Dear Carolina and Lies and Other Acts of Love. I am looking forward to her latest book, which comes out next year! So, you get to read excellent books and help a worthy cause!

Second, is some exciting news!!! The incredible authors of America’s First Daughter, will be joining the Sasee Facebook Reading Group this Monday! If you love Historical Fiction, America’s First Daughter is an excellent book! If you have already read this novel about Patsy Jefferson, feel free to join in on the fun!

 

Enjoy!

What are you Reading?

Hi Everyone,

The last two days have been insane at home. I haven’t been online as much as I wanted, nor have I read as much either. Sunday, I read one whole book and last night, I started The Magician’s Lie by Greer Macallister. I am looking forward to curling up with my boys tonight and hopefully finishing this book. I will be back on Friday with more reviews.

So tell me, what have you been reading?

Enjoy!

My Sister’s Books Review #93

A Lowcountry Christmas

By: Mary Alice Monroe

Book 5 in the Lowcountry Summer Series/Christmas Themed Book

 

Taylor McClellan is grateful for his wife, Harper, his home and his family. During this special Christmas, he reflects on his first Christmas at home, after being injured in Afghanistan. Five years ago, Taylor was released from the hospital, yet he knew his brain was still not well. His mother, Jenny, was thrilled to have her son home and wanted to have the best Christmas ever. Miller, Taylor’s younger brother, only wanted a puppy for Christmas. Life had changed drastically for each of the McClellan family members, but hopefully a Christmas miracle will bring them all together again.

Post Hurricane Matthew

Hi Everyone,

Well, I finally have internet again. Thankfully, my family and friends are safe and sound. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by Hurricane Matthew and the flooding rivers.

On a positive note, I read seven books in three days. It was my first big Readathon in several years and I loved it. Sure, I could have read more, but I enjoyed the time with my family. It was nice to squeeze in more cuddle time with my boys, but I am happy to be back online and working.

So what did I read and what reviews will you be seeing within the week:

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! πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚

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!

Reality is Back in Session

Hi Everyone,

On September 15, I traveled to Savannah for the first time ever. I was beyond blessed to attend SIBA16, a weekend long event. The hotel was filled with authors, booksellers, publishers and BOOKS! It was a dream world, yet better than a dream, because it was tangible. And then I came home late Sunday night…
