Cinder tilted her chin up, fixing her gaze on the man. Beside her, Wolf lowered himself into a fighting position, his fingers curled and ready, all at Cinder's urging. For the first time, she felt a spike of new emotion from him. Hatred, she thought. For her.
She ignored it.

  1. She sounds ready to do battle. I've been wanting to read this.
    I hope you had a great vacation. I'm just back from a short one myself. Hard to get back into the groove of things. Welcome back!

  2. Okay, so how is this book? I've been wanting to know from "like" minded readers (which I consider you to be). Shall I just wait for your review? ;)

  3. I know how that is. Now that the whole family comes with us on vacation, I don't read diddly squat.

  5. I did the same thing last week. Had all of these high expectations to read while I was on vacation, but then time got away from me and I ended up reading the same book for nearly two weeks.

    I'm interested in this series. I recently bought Cinder, so hopefully I can get to it soon.

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. I'm on vacation right now, too. I brought four books with me and two audiobooks. So far I've finished one book and will finish the second today. Not as much reading time as I anticipated!

  8. I want to read this whole series soo bad! I don't know what is stopping me from just buying it, but I might just do it after my next paycheck! This F56 definitely makes me more curious!! Also, it's funny, I actually read more during the holidays! Thanks for hosting :) I hope you have an amazing weekend!

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
