Sunday Ramblings.........

Happy Sunday everyone! It's a big day for me....last night I reached 100 followers! A few months ago I had a contest hoping to reach 45 followers by my b'day (which is today) so I've surpassed my goal...THANKS GUYS! I honestly thought no one would even read my blog for a year I could not be happier! BTW - in other great blog news - I will be getting a blog makeover by Parajunkee Design. Go check out her work & get on the waiting list (behind me of course). 
One of my favorite pics of my "kids" Indy & Lily
"Indy's so dreamy" :-)

On to the wrap up:

You can win 4 books that have guaranteed happy endings! Ends tonight at 11:59pm EST contest


My WoW pick was:

Guest review post:
Lee over at Pen or By Sword reposted my book review of The Reinvention of Edison Thomas by Jacqueline Houtman as part of National Autism Awareness Month. Thanks Lee! and go check out his informative post on the subject HERE

My blogger spotlight pick this week is: The Page Flipper Amazingly well written reviews....a nice selection of quirky books I wouldn't have known about otherwise!

Coming up:
Contest: I'll be giving away a copy of The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong!
Review: The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams

and coming up in two weeks......
I'll be having a HUGE contest to celebrate my favorite author Jeri Smith-Ready's debut YA book Shade. Don't worry - the fun will last for two weeks and include her YA and not so YA books.....

One more doggie pic - this one is Dando! If you have a picture of your pet - send it in and I'll post it on one of my Sunday Rambling posts!

Have a great week!


  1. Yay! Congratulations Karen on passing 100 followers, I'm your newest one, no.102! :-)

    I can't wait what Rachel will come up with for your new design, I love all of her creations they are so varied and each one of them so unique and cheerful! :-)

    As a huge Kelley Armstrong fan I'll check out your new reviews (somehow I haven't read her YA series yet, so I'll keep an eye for your contest ;-)

    Your dogs are cute, how many do you have?

    Have a great Sunday! :-)

    Bella - I can't wait either! So you gave up on the DP trilogy?? Oh well - you can't suffer with me!
    Heather - thanks for stopping by!! and guiding me through annoying traffic last night on twitter (you too Bella)
