Love Lies Bleeding by jess McConkey

This was a confused little story. I wanted to like it, I really did but the ending sucked. I felt like I missed something. It's a story of a girl recovering from a tragic accident while being controlled by her father and fiance while being haunted by a woman she never met. Weird. I didn't connect with the characters and I'm left with so many loose ends and questions that were never answered. I'm still scratching my head hoping the next book I choose will be better.

I won this book from and I won't be recommending it. It's just not worth it.

1 - 2 - 3!

Ha. I learned something today. My 4yr old would not get out of my bedroom this morning when he knows he's not allowed in there so:

ME: You have to the count of 3 to get out of my room... ONE!... TWO!... [scrambling to get his own room] ....THREE!

JACK: Why'd you say three (big frown)? That makes me sad.

ME: [making all kinds of mental notes] Why does it make you sad?

JACK: It does.

So, I've learned that counting to 3 really does work, at least for Jack. Now to find out if it works on Dylan.

Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens

I thought this book dragged out a little longer than it needed to. I enjoyed it but I guess I was expecting [wanting] something a little more fast paced.

The story is about an adopted woman who set out to find her birth parents and ends up learning the lesson that you should be careful for what you wish.

I liked how the story ended and I will recommend. I can't wait to read her first novel Still Missing.

Blame by Michelle Huneven

Giving this book 2 stars was generous of me. I really couldn't be bothered with it which is why it took me so long to finish it. It's upsetting since I wanted to read it FOREVER and then to dislike it so much. Maybe, just maybe my expectations were a little too high.

The story is about a woman who was charged with murder and how she dealt with the consequences through her life.

Also, I didn't like the author's writing style, it aggravated me the whole time.
