Reviewing!!

I have  just started to review books haven't done one as of yet.
 I'm getting there though Just got a ARC to review going great as far as actually reading it.
I've got tons and tons of books to read will do a review of them as I finish reading them and post how I liked it and if I recommend it or not.
Most of them I do recommend  because I share all my books with my cousin who is a avid reader like myself.  If she is willing she can add her own review's of the books we both read for different view point of  each of the books. I do Like to read more of  Western Romance and Regency's , she likes more Contemporary Romances and Chic Lit.
off to read more of my many many books.

Planter Box



My mom has a Green thumb so today my brother built this Planter box out of some old wood that was being thrown away.
She planted some tomato plants not sure what else she is gonna plant but she's happy about that planter box she has been wanting to plant a garden but we can't dig in the yard cause of the automatic sprinklers who knows where all the lines are and so another reason he built it is because we have Gophers in our yard we could have just one but not too sure on that either we've also seen it in the front yard. I wonder how much we really have probably a whole gopher village under our house and yard we do have holes everywhere!!

Reading Books/ EBooks

For Some reason I just Seem to Read Too many books at one time but i do eventually finish them all how many other people do that? I know i'm not the only one my mom does not do that.
and i've always done that.

I recently started reading E-Books that I have downloaded From my local library which is way Cool I just love that.

I have been only downloading bundles that are like 3-10 books in 1 download. I know that i should stop doing that though i've got about 100 Actual books i need to read!!!!!!

I don't Believe ....................

 
In love.
It's what People Tell themselves their In So they Can get Laid. Then they END up Hurting Each Other
Cause It was all Based On a Lie To Begin with :(
 
Yep so sad and I was so dumb.
reminds me of that country song- --There's More Where That Came From---Lee Ann Womack
 
I had forgotten what love was like........
The worst part of doing what I never should have done is that I know "There's More Where That Came From"
 
 
The price I'm paying now is this Secret  that I'm forced to Carry around.
 
Urghh!!!
that whole song fits
