Book Blogger Hop #2


Book Blogger Hop is another post I'm going to be trying out and this one has a topic each week, which is something I've been trying to bring to the blog.  I'm really excited about this one because I have a hard time coming up with something fresh to talk about and I'm hoping this helps.

If you would be interested in doing your own post, please CLICK HERE to learn more about this great hop!

This Weeks Topic:  

Do you read tie-in novels to movies or television series? If so, which ones? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer

I will have to say no on this because for the most part my books like Twilight and etc. are the original covers for the book not the movies. I am not one who necessarily reads a book because it is a movie.   

So what do you think? Do you read tie-in novels? Leave me a comment below. Hope you all have a great Friday.

Author: Sandra Byrd
Category: Devotional 
Pub. Date: 10/01/2012
Publisher: Tyndale House Pub.
Format: Hardback 
ISBN#: 1414362455

Synopsis: 
This One Year book is a diary-style devotional for tween girls (9 to 14) that emphasizes their growing, special relationship with God. Each devotion begins with a statement, thought, or question to God. Every girl is likely to make these statements and ask such questions . . . many of which they may not want to share with other people.The book emphasizes that tween girls can have a relationship with God and that they can share their intimate thoughts, fears, insecurities, joys, etc. It lets girls know: it's between you and God. Questions/topics include the following: "I know I'm supposed to be close to you (God), but I don't really feel like it now. How can I change that?" "Everyone talks about how I'm supposed to have faith, which is fine, except I don't really understand what faith actually is." Each devotion gives biblically based insight into the subject.

Category: Childrens
Pub. Date: 07/27/2012
Publisher: Free Spirit Pub.
Format: Kindle
Pages: 48
ISBN#: BOOALSO6RO
Series: WEIRD 

Synopsis: 
Luisa is repeatedly teased and called "weird" by her classmate Sam, even though she is simply being herself—laughing with her friends, answering questions in class, greeting her father in Spanish, and wearing her favorite polka-dot boots. Luisa initially reacts to the bullying by withdrawing and hiding her colorful nature. But with the support of her teachers, parents, classmates, and one special friend named Jayla, she is able to reclaim her color and resist Sam’s put-downs.
The Weird! SeriesThese three books tell the story of an ongoing case of bullying from three third graders’ perspectives. Luisa describes being targeted by bullying in Weird! Jayla shares her experience as a bystander to bullying in Dare! And in Tough!, Sam speaks from the point of view of someone initiating bullying. Kids will easily relate to Luisa, Jayla, and Sam, as each girl has her own unique experience, eventually learning how to face her challenges with the help of friends, peers, and caring adults.

It's Monday What are you reading?

Guess what...Its Monday! What are you reading this week?

Thanks for stopping by. First let me just say that I have been in a little bit of a reading slump (for lack of a better word)... But I have regained some much needed reading pep,

Sittin on The Shelf #1



Sittin on the Shelf is a posted by Ali's Bookshelf, she has given me permission to start posting this post as well. So in this post the main objective is to go through your books and find one that's been on your shelf for awhile. You are to read it within the next month or you have to unhaul it. 

This month will be my starting point and that will give me until the next month to read the book below. 




Title: Life and Death  Author: Stephenie Meyer
 Publisher: Atom

Published: October 6th 2015

Format: Hardcover
 Pages: 389 pages
 Celebrate the tenth anniversary of Twilight! This special double-feature book includes the classic novel, Twilight, and a bold and surprising reimagining, Life and Death, by Stephenie Meyer.
Packaged as an oversize, jacketed hardcover "flip book," this edition features nearly 400 pages of new content as well as exquisite new back cover art. Readers will relish experiencing the deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful love story of Bella and Edward through fresh eyes.

This book has been on my shelf for two years. I purchased it right after it came out. I love author Stephenie Meyers Twilight Saga books as well as the movies. So I was excited when this came out. 

 As to why I haven't read it:

But due to every day issues, (Life,) I left the book at our home in the south and actually forgot about it. So going down for a few weeks here in July, and trying to get back into reading and blogging my daughter challenged me to do this post and to read this book. 


What I plan on doing: 
What I am planning on doing is for the next few weeks is first, make sure it goes back up north. And to start this weekend reading it. It will also be added to my TBR list for this next month. 



So What Do You Think?
Have you all picked this book to be on your tbr list? Have you all already read it? And if so is it worth my waiting to read it now? Just leave me a note down in the comments down below.
