"Courage was hard to come by, especially with the denizens of the castle creeping closer to get a better look at us, no doubt sizing us up for the cooking pot."
Finally our new home has come together. Things are slowly normalizing. Now it is time for the delicious little bits like art. While scoping Etsy, I found so many adorable book related prints. I ended up picking the foxes at sea for my office (she's carrying a book while he navigates) and the pointing hand for my hallway.Featured shops: Winterberry Cottage and Jean Cody FauxKiss
"Kate had been traveling the road for hours, the rain her sole companion. It was an entertainer, the Irish rain, performing an endless variety of tricks for her amusement. It blew sideways, pounded and sighed and dripped. It hailed neat little balls of ice that melted off her hood and shoulders. She did her best to ignore it. She knew the type. She was from Seattle, after all, the city of her birth, life, and heartbreak."
Have you read The Last Song? Is it better than the movie? Does it end sadly?'Cause frankly I like my sugary endings and thought the film ended perfectly.
My star rating: 3 out of 5 stars. I found my self several times ready to give up on this book. As an older sister who helped raise her younger siblings, I hated Lettie and her selfish childish decisions. But, I loved her little brother Fate. I wanted to adopt him.

"Gazing out at the quiet lake,I know the risk is worth it."
"I've been wondering...is there a normal way to become paranormal? Like, go to Google, type in "Make me magic," click on a website and wait for a list of rules to pop up?"
When it comes to books, I'm prudish and suffer from Casper Syndrome. Yes, I totally made that up the other day. What is Casper Syndrome, you ask? I tend to like my ghosts (and other paranormal beings) like Casper the Friendly Ghost; friendly, trying to do good, and basically just in need of friendship and/or love. Call me a goody-goody paranormal optimist if you will. *wink wink*

Aunt Claudia is known in Hollywood as the Queen of B Movies. Horror films, zombie flicks, she's made them all. Holly never liked her aunt, but now she positively can't stand her. Especially once the ghost of her mother appears and tells Holly that Claudia was to blame for her death.

Teaser blurb courtesy of Goodreads: "At the age of fifteen Rahab is forced into prostitution by her beloved father. In her years as a courtesan, she learns to mistrust men and hate herself. Into the emotional turmoil of her world walks Salmone, a respected leader of Judah. Through the tribulations of a stormy relationship, Rahab and Salmone learn the true source of one another’s worth in God and find healing from fear and rejection."
My whodunit verdict: The best part of this story was the incredibly original story line. It will keep you on your toes and the plot is both timely and completely believable.My recommendation: Think cozy mystery with a dose of Killers (2010). I haven't seen it but every trailer reminds me of Lexi. Cozy lovers and fans of clean mysteries are sure to enjoy this one.
How about you? Seen them?
Love them? Hate them?
Highlights/Quotes: "The Harry Potter generation has grown up".
"A lot of adult literature is all art and no heart. But good Y.A. is like good television. There’s a freshness there; it’s engaging. Y.A. authors aren’t writing about middle-aged anomie or disappointed people."
