This and that and another book review

First off....a big shout out to my friend Alexes over at One Cluttered Brain! I helped her redesign her blog and although I required nothing in return she sent me a huge box of goodies! It definitely made my day! Yummy yummy! Thank you!

Also, I am floored that I got 25 comments on my post about depression after getting only 6 for my giveaway.....I think I'm starting to realize that the giveaways aren't the reason people come back and read. Your comments brought happy tears and a smile. So thank you. I've always known I wasn't alone, but it still feels good to be reminded. And it also feels good to know that you won't all just unsubscribe and hightail it outta here when I bring out my dirty laundry. (ha ha, you just have to come to my house to be assaulted with that!)

Okay, now as you all know I do the occasional review. And I love reading so books are one of my favorite things to review! But I still have mixed feelings about this book. I was sent Once in A Blue Moon to review as part of the One2One network and while I enjoyed it, I have to be completely honest in saying I probably wouldn't buy it. (Although that doesn't really say much since I am so poor I can't buy books. That's what the library is for!)
It was an interesting story, two sisters with a messed up Mom sent out to foster families only to be reunited years later. Add in a court battle over a piece of property and another over the custody of a child, romance, God, and a change of heart and you have an interesting story. Just not one I will be likely to pick up again. (Although I would be willing to read more by Eileen Goudge). But don't take my word for it....check it out for yourself! Here are the links:

  1. Your welcome, Sharla. You deserve it!
    Keep on writing posts, I love hearing what you have to say. :)

  2. The book wasn't what I expected either- maybe her others are better but I couldn't get into it to save my life.
    Glad you are realizing it is you we are coming to see, although let's be real, 20 bucks right now is an extra gift or gas in the car for a lot of us.

  3. Not every book is one we cherish.

    That's what makes the 1 book out of 20 (twenty) - or more -even more special. Reading and finding exceptional books is rather like kissing frogs until you find your Prince!
