Sunday Ramblings….

It’s been pouring out all day so I’ve spent a very lazy day napping and catching up on DVR programming. But I did have a few winners to announce and I’ll do a quick weekly wrap-up….


The winner of The Baggage Handler by Colin Browne giveaway is: CAROL M

The winner of the Daemons in the Mist Blog Tour with Alicia Kat Dillman giveaway is: AMANDA RAY

~ Daemons of the Mist Blog Tour with guest post by author Alicia Kat Dillman – Lending a voice to the imaginary.
~ Mini Reviews: Stepping outside my reader comfort zone
~ What A Boy Needs Blog Tour with guest post by Nyrae Dawn – Nyrae discusses her love of secondary characters and how they sometimes talk loud enough to get their own book. Great post and I highly recommend reading What A Boy Wants & What A Boy Needs!

For review:
OUTPOST by Ann Aguirre – thank you to Feiwal and Friends
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series!!

Not a book but book-ish and adorable. My friend Brooke from Brooke Reports sent me these bookmarks! You can take short notes right on the bookmark!! How cool is that???? Thank you Brooke! <3


Free to a good home: When new books come in – old books must go out. I’ll give away a group of books every week. This is for US only (sorry but shipping is expensive) Age requirements will be posted depending on the giveaway. Winner will be announced in the following Sunday Ramblings post..


This week I’m giving away a finished copy of Original Sin and ARC of Last Rite by Lisa Desrochers. You must be at least 16 years old to enter.


  1. That bookmark is really neat!! :)

  2. I have not read Enclave yet, but I'm going to!
    If you like zombies, you will love This Is Not a Test. I love Courtney Summers, so I had to read it in spite of the zombies. The end was a little intense, but I managed to get through it.
    Email me when you're done and we can chat :)

    1. I will!!! I love zombies. I used to hate them but my husband finally wore me down haha

  3. I love the bookmarks and and yeah for Outpost. You are sharing that one with me right ??? Love you

  4. I used to collect cute/clever bookmarks in high school. Then in college, I downgraded to using clean, folded Kleenex or the little paper wrappers from fast-food chopsticks. I was a ghetto reader in college!

  5. Kleenex??? LOL My dogs would pull that out and eat it. Beau loves kleenex.

    I'm a post-it note gal myself.

  6. Those are fantastic bookmarks! I totally need those b/c I'm forever marking with scraps of paper that fall out of the book so I have no idea what I was wanting to note. Have a great week!

  7. I've heard good things about Anne's books, I hope you enjoy Outpost and those bookmarks are so clever!
