  2. I love the covers to the books you featured. Hotel Ruby piqued my interest but they both sound good!

  3. I didn't know this book underwent a cover change. I think I'd be more likely to pick it up with the moon on the cover. There is something very eerie about it. Happy Friday!

  4. Oh dear, now I have another book to read. This looks very good. I think I prefer Hotel for the Lost as a title, although the cover for Hotel Ruby looks better. Hope you enjoy it, and have a lovely weekend.

  5. Funny thing is I had to do a double take when you mentioned "which cover/title". Though I love them both, I have to say the first one really drew my eye.
    Great share!

  6. Tough call! Both covers and titles are intriguing in their own way. I do love a good hotel-based book!

  7. Both covers are striking and both evoke strikingly different emotions. I can't choose! Enjoy them both

  8. Oh boy! This is one for me! I like both covers but leaning towards the first one. It's eerie and mysterious.
    Have a lovely weekend, Freda:)

  11. I can't tell for sure if it is a thriller or mystery or what? It is interesting.

  12. Love Chapter 1 and the word crafting is terrific! Happy Reading!

  13. The covers and "Stay Tonight. Stay Forever" already have me scared! LOL May be to spooky for this woman. I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine... http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewsDOAPC

  14. So is that the same book with two different titles? I have seen the Hotel Ruby around and have wanted to read it. I hope it's good! :)

    1. Yes, it's the same but has been re-named, Hotel of the Lost.

  15. I liked the original Hotel Ruby cover, but the second seems much more spooky.

  16. Hotel for the Lost sounds so exciting and the cover just draws me in making me want more. Even better then that snippet is driving me crazy. A forgotten past? Now I am dying to know what that past is.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the covers for both. Hotel Ruby is on my TBR and I didn't realize that it had another name. This sounds really good. Being from a warm weather area I can identify about the not so sensible scarves!

  18. My eyes are so bad with that tiny print -- I couldn't see it's the same book, new title. Sounds SCARY! Well written, scary.

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…
