I hope everybody has been doing well. I have an intense three weeks. The first week was Reading Rush. I managed to finish seven books during the week. The next week was Savannah. I had an amazing time, but I had something happen that changed my entire world. In the best way possible. This week has been winding down from the two weeks before.
Anywho, I’ve been so thankful for the readers I have on my blog that I wanted to do something as a thank you. I want to try to give some things away. I’m not sure how it’s going to go, so I’m going to break it down into stages. Every Friday I will give away one item. The amount of winners will depend on how many of the item I have. So for instance, if I have two sets of a series, I will pick two winners.
Here are the items I have to give away:
There will be four different giveaways. All of the above items will be included.
I will have six winners for this giveaway.
This will have one winner. Both books are signed by the author.
I have two sets of these two give. They are personally signed, but they are really good books.
I will have two of these to give. They are not signed. The cover is beautiful though.
I’m not really sure which I will start with. I will do my best to make all of the giveaways fun. I think I will have each giveaway last a month and announce the winners a week apart like I’m doing the giveaways. I am really excited to give this a go!!!
My favorite time of the week is here! WWW Wednesdays. This meme was originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm but was revived by Sam from Taking on a World of Words. It’s a place to talk about the books you’ve been reading, plan to read and have read.
To take part all you have to do is answer the following questions:
What are you currently reading?
What have you recently finished reading?
What are you going to read next?

Little do they know this will be the beginning of a journey they will never forget…

In honor of being in Savannah, this week I will be doing my writing prompts based on random pictures. If this goes well enough, I may consider making it a thing. I’d even take photo submissions.
She looked out the window. She lost hope of being found with every passing day. He did everything in his power to make sure nobody knew anything was wrong. Including taking her phone and constantly updating her social media. As far as anybody knew, she was out and about having the time of her life. She was healing from her recent horrible break up.
Her thoughts strayed back to that horrible night again. She should have just let it go. She shouldn’t have kept pushing for answers from Stacy. She learned more than she ever expected to. Stacy was still in love with her ex. Stacy’s ex wanted them to get married and have kids. There was no way to compete with that. All Stacy ever wanted was to start a family.
They could have had a family. She knew it. She could have said it. She was just so shocked at the events that she let Stacy walk away. She didn’t even fight for her. By the time it occurred to her to do so, she felt something go over her mouth and the world went dark. When she woke up, she was here.
A sound came from the other side of the room. She tenses with fear. She doesn’t know if she should stay where she’s at or hide. She looks down at the chain tied to her ankle. She looks around at everything close to her that she can reach. It’s too late. He steps into the light and smiles.
Hello Gretchen. We finally meet again.
Pick a thriller, horror, or mystery that you would strongly recommend to a friend or fellow reader.
Reason I Recommend:
I really enjoyed this book. It was a very easy read. It wasn’t predictable at all. There were so many surprises in every corner.
Blurb (Taken From Amazon);
The bride – The plus one – The best man – The wedding planner – The bridesmaid – The body
On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.
But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.
And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?
This week I will be in Savannah all week long. I have a convention I will be attending. It technically starts on Thursday, but there are a few of us that get there early. Last year and the year before, my mother and I got in the day before. We stayed so busy with the event, that we didn’t really do a lot of sight seeing. This year, we planned a few extra days. At the last minute, we planned even more to it as well.
This week, my writing prompts will be centered around my trip. I will post a picture and write about it. If it’s something that’s enjoyed, I will consider making a writing prompt a week with a photo at random. It may get me in the habit of taking more photos!

Sundays In Bed With
Welcome to our Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today!
Hosted by: Midnight Book Girl
I’m a little over 36 hours away from our library book club meeting for this book. I’m just starting it! I had planned to pick up the book weeks ago, but the day before we were planning on going to get the book from the library, the car messed up. We haven’t been able to get it fixed. Luck was on our side Monday and a friend took my fiance to get the book. With the Reading Rush, I wanted to get the challenges done first. I was going to read a little bit every day, but I was making such great progress that I thought I would have time! Then I decided to not read at all on Saturday. I needed the break though. Either way, this seems like a really good book so far. Very thought provoking.
