This is a challenge for every blogger who reviews books. We all have a stack or more that we haven't got to yet. I plan on tackling that TBR like nobody's business in 2016, so this challenge is made for me.


GOAL: 12 Past-Due Review Books

  1. Just Don't Call Me Ma'am - Anna Mitchael (2010 TBR)
  2. Slip Of The Knife - Denise Mina (2010 TBR)
  3. Corked - Kathryn Borel JR (2010 TBR)
  4. Detectives Don't Wear Seat Belts- Cici McNair (2010 TBR)
  5. The Happiness Project - Gretchin Rubin (2010 TBR)


QUARTER UPDATE
As you see, I've got 3 of the 12 books done. Yeah, I thought I'd be at a better pace, but there's a reason they sat on my shelf this long... seems they are usually a 2 out of 5 rating. So not great... But I don't give up that easy and hopefully there's a gem in there somewhere.


HALF WAY UPDATE

I moved up one lousy book. Basically, if I don't pick up the pace then I will fail the challenge. I hate to fail, so I best get on it. The one thing I do notice, is all the book are from 2010. I also notice they weren't that great... Was 2010 the year of bad books??

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
