Fate by Audrey Carlan #BookReview

There are not many authors in this world, that I give blanket recommendations for. Very few indeed. Audrey Carlan has become one of the authors on that list. I read Fate the fifth book in her Trinity Series, and it just solidified my love for her work. This series is fantastic. Her books are fantastic. 
I loved Fate so much! In fact, when I was done reading it, I simply needed more of Audrey's writing, so I decided to finally read her Calendar Girl series. 
You need to read Fate. You truly do. You need to know Kat and Carson's story. You need to know so much more than that, so read the entire series. Start at book one and read them all. I know you will thank me later.
Audrey has this amazing way of building entire worlds with her books. Worlds full of amazing people, drama, romance, suspense, humor, happiness, sadness, and every other emotion. She tells complete stories, and her series are full of books that build perfectly on each other.
Read on for a synopsis of Fate, inform…

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.

2. Mike: What are you doing? Minette: Decorating. Mike: For? Minette: Halloween. Mike: But it is August. Minette: I know. In about a week, Christmas will take over everything. I am just making sure that Halloween gets a fair amount of time.

Pucker Up by Sara Hubbard #BookReview

It is time for my most recent book review. My first of two this week. I had never heard of Sara Hubbard, but I love find new authors and new books, so I was excited to read this book. My excitement was worth it. This book was excellent. I definitely love Sara Hubbard's writing style. She definitely builds characters well, formulates thorough plots, and keeps you interested. 
This story was great. It kept my interest. It had drama, romance, and humor. It was very well written. The characters were ones we can easily relate to. It was set in college, and had me missing my college days by the end. I think most of us, when heading to college, wonder if we will meet our soul mate while there. I would have been happy to meet an Ozzie of my own in college. 
I found myself relating to Charlie. She is a bit OCD, and I am a lot OCD. I think it helped me understand her. She also has a good moral compass, but struggles to make decisions. She doesn't want to hurt others, but she also doesn…

Q to the A #UseYourWords

Welcome to August's Use Your Words post. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.



My words are:
detective ~ coffee ~ alley ~ sordid ~ camera ~ hopscotch

Can we all just take a moment to acknowledge the perfection of me receiving a Use Your Words list, which includes the word coffee?! Yes, keep contemplating the perfection of it. I will be right back. I am going to fetch another cup of coffee. *coffee interlude* Okay, I am back. I was struggling to come up with a way to use my words, and I did write a poem, which I dislike, so I went back to the drawing board…

Pants on Fire #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to August's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Write four things that are true about you and one lie and see if your readers can guess the lie.
It was submitted by: http://shannonbutler.org (Thank you for the fabulous prompt, Shannon!)
You guyssssss!!! When I read this prompt, I basically did a happy dance. I was so excited. It is FUN and I was like yayyyyy easy!!!! Then I sat down to write. Ummm... Say what?! Okay.... So four truths about myself. One lie about myself. Plus, I need it to be a bit difficult to pick which is the lie. Okay, maybe not so easy! LOL. I still love it. I had a lot of fun deciding which five things to say!!! 
Good luck!!
1. I am genuinely scared of chickens, especially roosters, and will RUN from them. I try to avoid them at all …
