"One of my bitches gave birth to a litter of mongrels. Before, they were too young to tell. But now... Well, I'd hoped for purebreads."
"Are we speaking of dogs or women?"
"Which would you prefer?" He gave her an impish grin.

  7. Well, I don't know. His comment didn't win me over.(: It didn't seem to bother her. So I must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed.

  8. The cover looks really "bad". I have not read any of Sarah's work, but that cover alone would make me give it a shot.

  13. That is a funny passage. Mine is much tamer. It came from the newly released Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography by Laura Ingalls Wilder and edited by Pamela Smith Hill.

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  17. I keep seeing this book being touted but I have to say that quote didn't win me over either. I didn't find that even remotely amusing. Sorry.

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.

Giveaway: A Touch Of Scandal

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never

he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
