Happy Summer, Family picture, and book reviews!

Hi All!!!

Summer is officially in full swing!!! I finished with the semester on May 18th, Cole finished on the same day and Liam was done a week later.....So far we have had a ton of fun.  We have been to the park, the natural history museum and a few other places, Tomorrow we are signing up the kids for the library summer reading program! I also heard Barns and Nobel has one, I may check into that as well.

I also want to say thank you to all of the authors who have contacted me and asked me to review their books!! I have gotten an amazing response and am actually booked through the first week of July!! So far I have kept myself to one book a week, because I feel like that way I can really give each book and author the time their book deserves!!! But I may revise that to 2 books a week!!! We will just have to see!!!

A few weeks we went out to take some new family pictures, we always take them ourselves because I honestly can 't see spending hundred of dollars to get them done, So Dan takes the pictures and I pose and edit them.....

Oh by the way I also now have a Facebook page for this blog!!!

Feel free to follow me here:

Thanks for reading!!! Hope everyone has a safe and happy summer!!!!
Talk to you soon!! for the review of Laurel Graver's Book

New Book To Review!! (Book introduction) Almost There By Laurel Graver

First off I would like to apologize for not doing many posts over the last few weeks, it was finals week at school, and then the kid's last days, so needless to say things have been crazy busy!! With the lazy days of summer officially here it is time to let loose!!  And what better way to do that then with a new book to review.  I was approached by author Laurel Garver a few days ago and asked to review her new book "Almost There."

Here is the blurb on the back of the book!!

Paris, the City of Lights. To seventeen-year-old Dani Deane, it’s the Promised Land. There, her widowed mother’s depression will vanish and she will no longer fear losing her only parent, her arty New York life, or her devoted boyfriend.

But shortly before their Paris getaway, Dani’s tyrannical grandfather falls ill, pulling them to rural Pennsylvania to deal with his hoarder horror of a house. Among the piles, Dani finds disturbing truths that could make Mum completely unravel. Desperate to protect her from pain and escape to Paris, Dani hatches a plan with the flirtatious neighbor boy that only threatens the relationships she most wants to save. 

Why would God block all paths to Paris? Could real hope for healing be as close as a box tucked in the rafters

So far I have read the first few chapters and I must say I am hooked, I am reading as fast as my eyes and brain can carry me, so I hope to get the review and author interview up with in the next week or so!!!

Here is the link to Ms. Graver's blog and a picture of the front cover!
