Thanksgiving Is Coming
25 Easy Thanksgiving Recipes: Delicious Thanksgiving Recipes Cookbook (Simple and Easy Thanksgiving Recipes) - Hannie P. Scott

Every year, while growing up, I heard how I had ruined Thanksgiving. How did I do this? By being born. It was my parent's first married Thanksgiving and I was born on that very day. My dad got a great meal at his parents' house and my mom was only allowed what they would give her in the hospital. 

 

Flash forward 39 years and my youngest is born, 2 days before my birthday and 3 before Thanksgiving. I was asked what I was going to do for my birthday the next year. I told the nurses, no offense (they were the best ever) I was staying far away! 

 

Now, for Thanksgiving, we celebrate my daughter's birthday and my birthday on Thanksgiving Day with a full Turkey meal and other things. We love this and day and all that comes with it. My father-in-law, brother-in-law and sister-in-law will be here for the day and we will have a lot of fun and food. 

 

I am always on the lookout for something new and different to add to the meal. 

 

I did like the book, but I didn't see anything I could add that we didn't already make or that we could actually have. 

 

It was a free purchase from Amazon and I do recommend getting a copy, maybe there would be something you would enjoy.

Hold Tight - review
Hold Tight - Scott Brick,Harlan Coben

 

I listened to the audio of this book. The narrator was a bit annoying at times. I didn't really like his style. The story was okay, a bit dated maybe. The characters had blackberries instead of iPhones, GPS technology was brand new, and teenagers were on MySpace. The old tech was a bit distracting. It was interesting to think about how much easier it is for police as well as regular citizens to track people and find evidence using electronic means. 

 

The parents are worried about their son because his friend committed suicide and he is shutting them out. So, they decide to put software on his computer so they can track every keystroke he makes. This, of course, leads to them finding out things they can't explain. And then their son disappears. There is also a man killing people, but we don't know exactly why until much later.

 

I liked the way the book brought together multiple plot lines as the story progressed. But it was more than a bit slow at times. In the end, it was just okay.

Nyxia - Scott Reintgen

I love the cover on this book. 

I don't read a lot of science fiction, however, when I saw the cover (1st appeal), then read the description (2nd appeal), I decided what the heck.

This is a young adult book and the characters are young. So some of the attitudes and conversations may seem juvenile, but I still think that it is a great book for adults as well.

I had some problems getting a few of the descriptions going in my head, but I think it's my flaw, not the books.

I didn't realize until I went to write this review that it's a triad (three part series). I knew there had to be when I finished the book just due to the ending.

All in all, I found this to be a entertaining read. I also look forward to reading the next book which deals with Eden.

Thanks to Random House Childrens, Crown Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Review For: The Attraction Equation by Kadie Scott
The Attraction Equation - Kadie Scott

The Attraction Equation by Kadie Scott is the Second Book in the "Love Undercover" Series. This is the story of Max Carter and Gina Castillo. I have read the previous book but feel this can easily be a standalone book. Max is a FBI agent that looks into white color criminals and totally focused on his career. Permanent relationships aren't in the cards for him right now and likes the one night stands and the women who know not to hang around. But since his best friend Drew met Cassie (First Book) and his family staying on him about dating he just had enough. So when he was at his family's house for Thanksgiving Dinner and his mother had three non family women over trying to fix him up he announced that he had a girlfriend. Now his mother wants him to bring the said girlfriend to Christmas Dinner.
Gina is house sitting and taking over her friends lease while she is overseas for a few months. Gina's brother has been wanting a dog and Gina happens to stop by an animal shelter just looking around finds the perfect dog. But her friends apartment building doesn't allow pets so Gina is trying to keep him hidden for the month until Christmas when she can give her younger brother, Meto the dog. But on while trying to sneak him out one night to take him on a bathroom break she gets caught by the stuff up neighbor Max her friend warned her about.
Max soon comes to an arrangement that he will keep her secret if she helps him out with the 'girlfriend' issue.
This was a fun, sweet romance that you won't want to put down.

Really Not Sure What to Say About this Book.
The Library at Mount Char - Scott Hawkins

I am still trying to figure out what I just read, and what to say about it!!!!! This book was really messed up that's for sure. I really wasn't sure if it was a 3 or 4 star for me, so I gave it a 3 1/2  star rating. Steve, Carolyn, and Erwin were to me the most interesting characters in the book and I am not really sure if I liked or hated how the story ended for each of these individuals. David was really a distributed individual, and he really gave the creeps, and I am not really sure how I felt about his ending in the book. And the mystery of what happened with "father", I am delighted not sure how I felt about his story either.

I guess just like the book, these individual characters ended went along with that. The book was just so weird that at times I just didn't know if I was going to want and finish this book at all. But I just had to see what was going to happen to everyone, especially Erwin, Carolyn, and Steve. And to see how things were going to wind up. Favorite part has to be with Steve and the Lions. It was interesting to find out why Carolyn acted the way she did towards Steve. I really didn't have a favorite or really care for anyone in particular, but if I had to pick someone it would be a tie between Steve and Erwin.

I really loved the cover, and I am not sure if I would ever read the book again, but who knows.
