A Conversation I really Had…

ME: I’m hoping reading that Nikki Sixx book has snapped me out of my anti-reading funk. Twilight was so awful, I’m halfway done with it but it was killing my soul so I had to stop reading it.
Best Friend: I dont like the Twilight stuff at. all. and I dont understand the people that do
ME: ME EITHER! But i thought, i heard they’re easy to read, i’ll give it a shot… now part of my soul is dead and I’ll never get it back

Stephanie Plum…

I am going to start re-reading the first few, and finishing the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I read the first 4 on my Senior Graduation Vacation in 2005 and have really wanted to finish them, just haven’t made time. Now I have. Thanks to the Kindle App on my phone!

Oh for the Love…

I have so much shit going on lately that I don’t even know where to begin. I need to write to get it all out, but at the same time, I don’t want to write it all out because I don’t want people to think I’m retarded by being bothered.

I really want to finish the Twilight books, that way I can mark them off and forget all about them. I didn’t want to read them in the first place. I want to get away from supernatural books. I might even adjust my list to take off re-reading the first 9 Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) books by Charlaine Harris. Of course I want to reread the 10th book, and the new one that’s coming out in May, but after that, I think I want to move on.

I have really enjoyed working, and I love the fact that I am earning money! I can start working on my list of things I want to accomplish this year, and pay off my debt. That makes me happy! It’s going to take a while to do it, but it will get done. I was talking to my boyfriend last night, and this summer, depending on how my hours pan out at my job now, if i stay at 20 hours a week I mean, I will get a second part time job, and start putting all of my income from my second job toward bills, or maybe I will save it up so that I can keep it for a rainy day. I dunno. I just need to get it under control. I have even considered going to the bank once I get my first pay check, and seeing if I couldn’t get a loan to pay for the three major cards. I hate my life when I think about the debt and the fact that I left everything to my ex husband. I should have made him pay off my credit cards and left everything else to him. Ugh!

Review 5/5 – Charlaine Harris – Lily Bard Mysteries

What a crazy series of books! This series is a lot different from Charlaine Harris’ other books I’ve read simply because there is nothing supernatural about it. I am not sure about the Aurora Teagarden books yet, since I haven’t started them yet.

Review 5/5 – Mitch Albom – Tuesday’s With Morrie

Meet Morrie Schwartz–a one of a kind professor, whom the author describes as looking like a cross between a biblical prophet and Christmas elf.

I have read this book a few times now, and I have even watched the movie. It makes one rethink some aspects of their lives, and, personally, it makes me tear up. I find inspiration in stories like this, and it helps remind me to make the choices I want to live with for the rest of my life. In chapters about marriage and love, I realized through Morrie’s thoughtfulness, that my recent divorce was the best thing for me. That is a choice I can live with for the rest of my life. This is just one of many issues this books brings one to realize.

I will leave you with a quote from the book that I found quite wonderful…

Review 5/5 – Charlaine Harris – Harper Connelly Mysteries Book 3

After Harper locates eight long-dead bodies, much to the surprise of skeptical Sheriff Sandra Rockwell, a mysterious figure attacks Harper. Though all Harper wants is to go home and recover from her injuries, the local authorities and State Bureau of Investigation agents demand that she stay in town to help with their investigation. The cold case heats up fast, attracting media attention as well as Harper’s friends, ailing psychic Xylda Bernardo and her doting grandson, Manfred, who make another gruesome discovery. Harper’s changing relationship with her stepbrother, manager and confidant, Tolliver Lang, lends personal interest.

So this past weekend I read the first two books, which I own, but last night I got my  hands on some eBooks, and sped through the third book. I must say, I liked this book even more than the first two.
