A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS by Robert Ford and Matt Hayward
A Penny For Your Thoughts - Matt Hayward,Robert Ford

Who knew how powerful a jar of pennies could be?

 

Fresh out of prison, Joe enjoys walking in the woods of his hometown, (who wouldn't when they had been confined for so long?) A glint of glass beneath the leaves catches his eye, and he doesn't know it yet, but it will change his life forever. How could a jar do such a thing? You'll have to read this to find out!

 

Even though Joe is an ex-con, he's a good guy. He's trying to do the right thing. He's off the drugs, he's off the lousy wench of a girlfriend, and he's trying to make things right with his dad. It's not long after he gets home that his friend Kenny is trying to talk him into returning to a life of crime and it's hard for Joe to resist. I think this is part of the reason that I liked Joe so much, he was realistic. It's easy to say you're going to go straight when you get out, but nothing is easy about reestablishing your life, and his character reflects that reality.

 

I'm not going to delve further into the plot, because it should unfold as the authors intended. However, I will say that there were portions of this book that were LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY. Not just for people like me, (I've been told I have a juvenile sense of humor at times), but for anyone. I DARE people to read about what happened to Kenny without laughing. (I read that part on my lunch hour and couldn't tell my co-workers what made me laugh so hard I cried.)

 

Joe was my favorite among the main characters, but I did like the others as well-they were well drawn and felt real to me. There were a few people and items mentioned that I would have liked to learn more about-namely the Crimson Sisters. And what was up in that room full of statues and goat guts? This inquiring mind wants to know!

 

Be prepared to read this rather quickly, as I posted an update last night at 80% and about 2 minutes after that, I knew I was staying up to finish this book. It was exciting, it was hilarious at times, it was scary, it felt realistic and the ending was only slightly predictable.

 

I don't know if these authors are planning to collaborate again in the future, but let this serve as my plea...I need more! Preferably, as soon as possible!

 

Highly recommended!

 

Available June 1st, but you can preorder here: A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS

 

*Thanks to Mr. Ford for the e-ARC of this book in exchange for my review consideration. I considered it, said HELL YEAH! and here we are.*

Rabbit Hole

I've been sick for the last four (maybe five) days. I'm on my second of potentially 10 days home from work. At this rate, I will not be finishing the school year. It's a good thing I have three years worth of banked sick time. I've used way too much of it this year. 

 

Anyway. I decided to go down the series rabbit hole. I made a list of all the series I have started. I read a lot of mysteries so this list got a little out of control. I had to add a couple of qualifiers- 

 

1.) A series is defined as having more that four published books.

 

2.) I did not count a series if there are plans for several more published works (more than two)

 

With the qualifiers in place, I still had quite the list. I won't list all of the series in this post. I need to pace myself.

 

As it stands right now -

 

43 series started and not finished

 

19 series started and not going to finish

 

As mentioned above, I read a lot of mysteries. I'm in a GRs group dedicated specifically to historical mysteries. This list is far from complete.

Positive Thoughts for a Positive Attitude by Lynn R. Davis
Positive Thoughts For A Positive Attitude: A Collection of Best Facebook quotes, Inspirational Words, Daily Declarations, Motivational Sayings, and Spiritual Devotions - Lynn R Davis

Positive Thoughts for a Positive Attitude by Lynn R. Davis is a collection of inspirational words, motivational sayings and spiritual devotions. I gave it three stars.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy in an Amazon promotion. That did not change my opinion for this review.

 

Chapter 1 has One Hundred Inspirational Quotes, Chapter 2 Thirty One Daily Positive Affirmations and Chapter 3 has Fourteen Bible Devotions.

 

"They are all in good taste; clean; and can be applied by any person who is seeking to live a more positive life." They are found from multiple public forum sources and some are given quote credit but it seems many are anonymous.

 

"You have to love yourself because no amount of love from others is sufficient to fill the yearning that your soul requires from you."-Dodinsky

 

"I choose to live by choice not by chance. To make changes not excuses. To be motivated not manipulated. To be useful, not used. To excel not compete. I choose self-esteem not self-pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinions of others."-Positiveoutlooks.com
