Books 'n' Bloggers Swap



A couple of weeks ago I was having somewhat of a 'blah" day, in the middle of a "{exasperated sigh}" week, and I thought to myself: "What might make things a little bit better? Books!"

Of course I wasn't in much of a mood to move to my computer to browse so I never did buy those books. But the next day, probably sometime after staring at my tiny overstuffed bookshelf in my tiny overstuffed bedroom and telling myself: "I don't really need more books",  I decided that instead of trying to pick which books I was going to get, despite everything I said, I was going to let someone else pick and instead do a little book shopping for someone else.

My Humdrum Life [8/3]

I'm getting lazy.

So lazy in fact that I was partially tempted to just leave it at that.

You would think that me telling myself I'm getting lazy would be motivation to move; but no, not really.

I've lost count how many times I've asked myself, this week alone, what the last review I wrote was. And then there's the fact that I'm trying not to overthink that I have to read two books for a review next month (exactly) but haven't received them yet.
I got them in formats I can't open so am waiting for one that I can.

Am I complaining or just telling you my woes?
I hate being a complainer. On the rare occasions I do, I'll usually get it out so fast that the person I'm talking to just smiles and tries to calm me down.

Confessions of a Queen B* by Crista McHugh Excerpt

Alexis Wyndham is the other type of Queen B—the Queen Bitch.

After years of being the subject of ridicule, she revels in her ability to make the in-crowd cower via the exposés on her blog, The Eastline Spy. Now that she's carved out her place in the high school hierarchy, she uses her position to help the unpopular kids walking the hallways.

Saving a freshman from bullies? Check.

Swapping insults with the head cheerleader? Check.

Falling for the star quarterback? So not a part of her plan.

But when Brett offers to help her solve the mystery of who’s posting X-rated videos from the girls’ locker room, she’ll have to swallow her pride and learn to see past the high school stereotypes she’s never questioned —until now.

Up To I Do - Relese Day

Emerson Sinclair, twenty-seven year old hotel heiress, has said yes. With just over a year to plan her extravagant, over the top nuptials to Logan Worthington, it’s all hands on deck with the wedding plans. A Sinclair marrying into the Worthington family is the talk of their small New Hampshire town, and ideas include filming the wedding for a TV segment. But as the items get checked off the list, plans start to go ... not as planned. From not getting a designer dress to a selfish bridesmaid and unaccountable best man, Emerson is afraid her wedding will be more a joke than anything.
When both her mother and sister seemingly begin to lose interest in her wedding plans in favor of their own personal lives, Emerson fears her big day will turn into the forgotten wedding. With the pressure to pull off a beautiful and elegant event that everyone expects from their respectable families, Emerson starts to forget the reason why she is saying I Do in the first place.
