  3. The last Linky I posted did the same. I think they need some kind of spam filter or moderation option....
    Congrats on figuring out Edelweiss! I can't seem to get a handle on it and I never get approved there. Which is weird since I've never had a problem on NG.

  4. I've read some of Sue Grafton's books - but not this one. I'd like to.

    1. I will definitely be reading them in order but not right away. I bought this one the day media learned of her passing. I felt it a great tribute to start the series.

  7. I love Sue Grafton's series. I need to finish off the series still (next is U). It's one of my favorite mystery series. Thank you for hosting!

  8. I read A Is For Alibi many years ago. Sue Grafton was a great writer. It's too bad she didn't finish the series before her death.

    I prefer to use Netgalley.

  9. I need to finish the series--I should probably re-start it, it's been so long.

  11. I got an account at Edelweiss but don't recall requesting anything. I didn't get on with the interface. I much prefer NetGalley's simpler approach.

  12. I've never read this series and it's so famous! Thanks for playing along on Book Beginnings!

    Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

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.


4.5/5

#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…
