Sprinkled with Love by Jennifer Faye - Excerpt + Giveaway

Sprinkled with Love by Jennifer Faye What does one do with a matchmaking cat named Romeo? Spirited and beautiful, Jillian Parker is one of Marietta’s newest business owners. Still, her mother worries about Jillian’s bare ring finger. So in order to give her mother something else to fuss over, Jillian adopts a cat named Romeo. He turns out to be anything but a docile lap cat. One snowy night, Romeo makes a break for it. With Jillian right on his heels, they have a near miss with a passing pickup driven by Avery Wainwright, one of Jillian’s closest friends. A rodeo accident has the sexy cowboy returning home to recuperate, and he’s not happy about it. So when Avery finds himself lassoed into the Bachelor Bake-Off, he turns to the one person who has always helped him out—Jillian. But will teaching him to take chances outside of the show ring have them both discovering that their feelings for each other run much deeper than they ever imagined?

February Write On Review A Thon

Write On Review-a-Thon
The Write On Review-a-Thon is a challenge hosted by Book Bumblings. From Friday through Sunday, we all band together and write as many reviews as possible. It’s a weekend for you to either catch up on reviews or get ahead on upcoming ones. It doesn’t matter if you write one review or 10 – if you write a review, you’re in. Join this month’s challenge here.

The next review-a-thon will be this Friday, February 24 through Sunday, February 26.

As of now it seems I have all the books I have to reviews in control and set and really I all I have to do is write reviews that are waiting.
Sometimes easier said than done. It has been so hard for me to write lately. I'll start then have no clue where I was going with it, or decide that I can think better if I write it out in a notebook. Nope.

Song(s) of the Moment 2/21

Songs of the Moment is a bi-monthly feature I started where I pick a song that represents the week, day or month; that fits with a moment I recently had. Or that's been on repeat.

"That represents a moment I recently had." It's kind of sad when you realize it's been too long since you've had a "moment." At least one worth attaching a song to.

I've got another random munch of "stuck in my head" songs this week.

A List of Cages by Robin Roe - Book Review

25613472A List of Cages by Robin Roe
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Published January 10th 2017 by Disney-Hyperion

When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he's got it made. Sure, it means a lot of sitting around, which isn't easy for a guy with ADHD, but he can't complain, since he gets to spend the period texting all his friends. Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian--the foster brother he hasn't seen in five years.

Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew. He's still kind hearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids. But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what's really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives.
