Shelving Saturday - #4

Welcome to Shelving Saturday

Shelving Saturday is a weekly blog event I have started here at Eastern Sunset Reads.   Each week I will post a shelving dilemma or question and you can join me in the response. Please feel free to post on your blog and link back here, please be sure to post the link to your response in the comments so I can come and check your Shelving day out!

So this week's question is . . . What is your odd man out book? What book just doesn't fit anywhere in your collection?

Come on, we all have at least one book that just doesn't fit on a shelf.  My personal Odd Man Out book is Confessions of a Shopaholic. Most of my books are fantasy, paranormal, historical, romance and thriller (especially medical). Now where does chic book fit in there?! So I just move it around from shelf to shelf filling a space where needed until some others can join it.  So spill the beans whats your odd man out book?

In My Mailbox - #4

   In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by The Story Siren that I have decided to participate in.

How IMM works:
Make your own IMM post! You can post about books you've bought, gotten from the library, received for review... books don't have to arrive via your mailbox. 
I post every week, but you don’t have to. You can do one week out of the month or every other week it’s up to you. 
You don't have to call your post In My Mailbox... (some people don't even have mailboxes!)
I post my IMM on Sunday, but choose a day of the week that works for you.
Once you have your IMM posted, come back to The Story Siren on Sunday and add your link to the list. 
Try to post a comment on other bloggers IMM posts. I don’t expect you to post a comment on every single one, but pick a few!

All book bloggers are welcome, while I’d like to keep the theme to YA literature it’s NOT a requirement.

There is no right or wrong way to do In My Mailbox, you can vlog, you can take fun picture, you can use the books cover art, it’s up to you!

Most importantly HAVE FUN!

So Here is my In My Mailbox #4

Some great books there! I had to pick up some books from the Amazon 4 for 3 sale ;)  

I apologize again for my absence and I promise many reviews next week when I return! I have already finished one book and am nearing the end of another, hopefully finish one or two more before the end of my vacation on Tuesday!

Hope your days are filled with fun!

Teaser Tuesday -#2

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Eternal Rider by Larissa Ione (Adult warning)
Synopsis from Goodreads: " They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
His name is Ares, and the fate of mankind rests on his powerful shoulders. If he falls to the forces of evil, the world falls too. As one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, he is far stronger than any mortal, but even he cannot fight his destiny forever. Not when his own brother plots against him.
Yet there is one last hope. Gifted in a way other humans can't-or won't-understand, Cara Thornhart is the key to both this Horseman's safety and his doom. But involving Cara will prove treacherous, even beyond the maddening, dangerous desire that seizes them the moment they meet. For staving off eternal darkness could have a staggering cost: Cara's life."

"You were going through my things."
Carefully, she placed the toy animals in the box, along with the wooden rattle.  But she ran her thumb over the bronze ring and the milky green emerald set into it. "It's beautiful," she whispered.
His throat closed up . "It was my wife's".
She set it in the box. "And the other things?"
"The were my sons'. Now get out."
"The light was on --"
"Get. Out."

from page 261-262

So how about your teasers? Lets see them

Someone's Got the case of the Mondays!

Yes siree! I am tired and cranky today, my eyes are watering from the effort of keeping them open. 

This is what I get for the clean-a-thon of my house this weekend getting ready for company tomorrow. So I just want to give you all a little update in case I don't make it back here, I will be on vacation from tomorrow afternoon until the following Tuesday afternoon.  My best friend will be visiting, but thankfully she is a major bookworm as well and wants to go to the park and read most of her visit.  I will hopefully be able to get online and post a few reviews for you this week.

So here is a little beginning of week update for you:

Currently Reading:
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
Immortal Rider by Larissa Ione
A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

Bedtime Story this week is going to be Green Eggs & Ham!

My current writing adventure: 13,892 words (I started out strong and then faded sadly, but hoping to get some work done while at the office today and tomorrow).

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and find lots of  new adventures in your books!
