My Favourite......Book Character



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info: My Favorite Meme.

Picking a favourite book character is like picking a favourite child.  It's not really possible,  I love them all so much.  However, when I first read this the first character to pop into my mind was Cara, from the Sword of Truth series.  I love the Mordsith, they have been through hell and back and they find the inner strength to keep going, that's powerful.

Cara comes  out as a favourite above the other Mordsith probably just because she is more prominent in the series but they all hold a special place in my heart as the character type resonates strongly.  

What is your favourite book character?

My Favourite.....Animated Movie



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info: My Favorite Meme.

If this had come up just a few weeks ago it would have been hard, I am a huge animated movie fan so there are so, so many that I love but that was for we finally got out to see Moana.  We had not seen it due to scheduling with the kids and I was super excited that it was still playing in the theaters.


Moana is really my kind of girl, she sets off on an adventure to save her home and her family.  She is brave and loving and my gosh..that hair!  It is a great, great movie.

I cannot stop singing the songs from this movie.  I mean, the movie is fantastic and we loved it and have already added it to our movie collection but the music.  So much more.  I am how my daughter was a few years ago when all she did was walk around singing "Let It Go" until her brother wanted to leave her out in the backyard.


I am sorry if you are singing this for the rest of the day...I know I will be.  Have a great day and if you haven't seen Moana...you should.  Just for the music which you will never get out of your head.  I play it all day at work.

A to Z Challenge 2017: Theme Reveal

Not that long ago I was in a huge panic, I had a theme for the challenge this year but I had done none of the work and only had one post written and scheduled.  I blame my son who gave me the flu and then took off on a March Break adventure.  Leaving me to fend for myself sick.  (was not pretty)

Flash forward a few days though and I was feeling better but still pretty tired so I spent a whole night in bed reading which gave me a huge bump forward so I decided to keep my theme sort of.  It was going to be me reading through a series for every letter of the alphabet and reviewing each book.

Instead I just went with what came up again, some are a single book, some are multiple books, some are novellas.  All are off the jungle that is my kindle.  Man that thing is too full of books, I could read two a day for the next ten years and not be through it.  Yet I keep adding more....I have a problem. That does not even count the books I read with Kindle Unlimited.

A To Z Challenge Theme: Book Reviews

See you guys out there.  I look forward to making new friends.  Some of my favourite blogging people I meet through the A-Z.

Celebrate The Small Things: March 17, 2017



Celebrate the Small Things is hosted by Lexa Cain along with wonderful co- hosts Writing Off The Edge and Kitbits.

Today I am celebrating one kid coming home from their March Break adventures.  Having both of them away at once is too much for me.

I am also celebrating spring starting next week, it has not been a hard winter but I am tired of it all the same.

What are you celebrating this week?

Touch of Frost Reread Review



My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy; a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest. But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I'm determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why; especially since I should have been the one who died... 

I enjoyed this book on the first read but not as much on the second read, not a book that I will be keeping for my bookshelf.  It is a decent read though if you like YA fantasy.
