No Second Chance...

As I've said before my goal this year is to read 75 books. I just finished my fourth book the other day and here's my review on it.

I usually don't give out 4 or 5 stars to books unless they really have my attention. I was into this book from page 1. This book was my favorite so far by Harlan Coben. I was guessing who did the crime the whole time. At one point I was sure I knew who did it and then the plot was twisted. The epilogue was such a good add on. I can't wait to see what his next book has in store.

Now I'm on to Jodi Picoult's book called Mercy. I have a list of authors that I want to read all of their books. Here in the last year I've gotten kind of OCD about how I read books and all. For example. I want to read the books in the order that the author wrote them in. My list of authors currently includes Harlan Coben, Barbara Delinsky, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Beverly Lewis, James Patterson, Jodi Picoult, Nora Roberts, Danielle Steel and Scott Westerfeld. Some of these authors have over 100 books! Anyhow, guess I'd better get off of here...Thanks for reading

Friday fill-Ins...

I'm on my lunch break and remembered to do this so here it is...

1. I'd really like stay at home right now.
2. Crap is the word you'd most often hear me say if I stubbed my toe.
3. Possession is 9/10 of the law.
4. Arr! Captain Jack Sparrow.
5. Marshmallows and fire go together like peanut butter and jelly.
6. Goes on and on.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to resting, tomorrow my plans include cleaning and reading and Sunday, I want to celebrate my birthday!

Well, I finished the book Extras by Scott Westerfeld. Here's my review that I wrote for it on

This was by far my favorite book of the whole series. The other books usually took me about two or three days to really get into them but as soon as I started reading this one I was into it. I loved Aya and Frizz.

Now I've started another book called No Second Chance by Harlan Coben. It's starting out really good so we'll see. I don't know if I posted but my goal for how many books I read this year is 75. I'm hoping I'll make it at least to 50 but I'd love to make it to 75. We'll see I guess. Extra's was the 3rd book.

My friend Erica and I have decided to delete and cancel our whole bloging thing. We both have very busy lives and it's just a little extra busyness that we don't need. So, if you were one of the few who read that then I'm sorry but it's no longer around.

Anyhow there's another blog here that does Friday Fill-Ins ( I first saw it on my friend Erica's blog. It's basically survey's that are supposed to be done on Friday but oh well, it's Saturday and I'm still going to do it.

1. Oh, I am so thristy!
2. Life changes, big and little.
3. During work, I take care of children.
4. Seriously; are you kidding me???
5. Right now I'd like to be at the beach.
6. My computer (?) is my favorite gadget.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to babysitting, tomorrow my plans include cleaning and Sunday, I want to go to church!

Specials by Scott Westerfeld. It was an okay book...Here's the review I wrote on it at

This book took me a while to get into but once I got into it I couldn't put it down. The future aspect of this book was kind of weird at times but I loved the ending. I can't wait to start Extras.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars.

Since last post...

Life has been pretty good. I went back to work last week and it was a really good week. Then I went to the dentist this Monday and I had an allergic reaction to something that they did or used. The way I can describe it is think about when you get a burn and it just keeps burning, that's the way my bottom lip feels :( But it's getting a little better so hopefully soon it will be completely gone away.

School starts next Monday. I'm only taking one class this semester because all the other classes I needed were at the same time. GRR...But this class is on Monday nights from like 6-8 :(

Me and my friend Erica have started a blog together...Go check it out...
