Second Chance at Love (Weekend Getaways) by Paige Prince Two Ravens and One Crow by Kevin Hearne
I did participate in the Twitter Chat (from work – Bad MamaJo) and had a blast!
I finished Tricked (I plan to do a series review, so I only took notes and highlights)
I added a book to my TBR, probably not the best decision, but I couldn’t resist!
I strengthened my resolve to finish the books on this list before reading more Druid goodness (Iron Druid Chronicles), it was tough for me, but I will persevere!!!
I finished Girl Three!
I remembered to add #boutofbooks to my book related tweets.
I visited 4 book blogs I had never been to before!
I am making my reading time goals with an average of 7 hours a day, which has been tough because I have had to go to work early without the benefit of getting out of there early.
I finished Second Chance at Love and Two Ravens and One Crow
I did have to change my reading goals, due a commitment that came up for June. I removed Outcast Prince and substituted Two Ravens and One Crow.
I participated in the twitter chat – That is one FAST moving hour!!!
I only visited two new blogs, and have yet to comment, but I am going to – I swear!!!
I finished Trapped
I visited 3 more blogs and even commented!!
Here I am again with another crazy book cover. Keep in mind, this has nothing to do with the author(s), publisher, or artist – just something that made me look twice (or even three times). I guess I have a fixation with hands in pants because this week’s WTH is brought to you by: Tank Girl: Bad Wind Rising by Alan Martin and Rufus Dayglo.
A holiday. A hold-up. A murder. A car chase. A very large vodka. A fistfight. An earthquake. A mutant surfer. A lorry heist. A tiny moped. The return of a much loved secondary character – and a gang of killer kangaroos after Tan Girl’s scalp.
Don’t miss Tank Girl’s latest twisted action adventure!

I personally enjoy graphic novels, but this cover is just um…uh…okay????
It seems as though she has some kind of mammal in her kangaroo (?) suit while someone else grabs her from behind to shield her ta-tas while she has some other creature eating her kangaroo hat (or is it the same one?) and yet one more creature popping up behind her. Is she checking on the animal in her pants or has the man behind her enticed her to self gratification? I will leave you to decide while I go and read something completely different. (Although I am tempted to read all four of these just to see if the cover will make sense to me.)
Today is my 30th birthday. Some people might see that as the beginning of my downward descent on “the hill” of life, but with how old people are living these days, I think I’ve barely begun. Sure, my joints ache and I’m tired a lot, but I still don’t feel old. I hang out with my 21 year old friends just as easily as I do my 40+ year old friends.
They say that age is all in how you feel. Well, I’m 30 and I feel pretty good. I’m married to a wonderful man, I have the most beautiful and sweet little girl on the planet, I have a home that I love a car that runs, and the bills get paid every month. Yes, I hate school but I’m almost done. Once I graduate and get pass the registry, I’ll be able to work with patients and do something I really love to do. How many people can say that? Did I also mention that my debut novella is being released today?? HOW COOL IS THAT??
I’m blessed. And today is my birthday.
I’m currently in New Orleans partying it up with my husband and in-laws (it’s way more fun than it sounds, I promise you — they party harder than I ever did!) but in my absence, I wanted to leave you with a chance to win a pressie on my birthday. I’m offering up a $10 gift certificate to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or iTunes as well as the chance to win a copy of my debut novella (as Paige Prince) Second Chance at Love. Enter using the Rafflecopter below!
