Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to :
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3 . Share 2 "teaser" sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser".
4. Please avoid spoilers!

He rolled his eyes. I couldn't see it, but I could feel the movement. And the rolling of teenage eyes has a noiseless noise all it's own.

Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday at The Printed Page (this month at Bermudaonion's Weblog) is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

I've missed out on a few weeks here. Life sometimes gets in the way and my blog has suffered for it. I've missed everyone and look forward to getting back into the swing of things. I have a lot of catching up to do! I hope the month of September has been very good to you so far.

The Fall by Guillermo Del Toro, Chuck Hogan

I also had a huge contest win from A Lush Budget Production Tales of a Ravenous Reader. Nancy gave away a box of amazing young adult arcs that she was finished with and she picked me! Look at all of these great titles! Since I already had two of them I will be having a giveaway to share my good fortune. Look for that coming soon!

New stuff is here!

I finally placed my order with CSN Stores and my goodies arrived a few days ago. Hubby got his new set of pots and pans...

and I got my hammock!!

It makes me sad that it's September already but I'm taking advantage of every free moment of sunshine. Hubby snuck this photo yesterday when I was resting my eyes (and all the rest of my body parts). Don't I look comfy?
