Hello Sunday

Image
Sunday Mornings are such a beautiful time for reflection, rejuvenation and relaxation.
Starting off the day with some personal meditation, prayer with God or what ever your belief system or even just spending quality time with your family is is a great way to recharge and get ready for the week ahead. When looking for a book to talk about today I looked on a book shelf I rarely go through and found some books that I thought were gone still on my shelf. I was hugely relieved and surprised.

One of the books I found was a very small yet powerful book.
I remember when I got this book and during that time of my life it helped immensely. You or someone you know may be going through a trial or struggle and maybe this book will help.

The Prayer of Jabez also known to some as the prayer for increase



Dr. Bruce Wilkinson, president of Walk Thru the Bible Ministries, takes readers to 1 Chronicles 4:10 to discover how they can release God's miraculous power and experience the blessings God lon…

What's Hot: The Girl in The Spider's Web

Image
Fans of the Millennium series by Stieg Larsson are now getting a new installation (book#4) to add to this international best selling saga by Swedish journalist and author David Lagercrantz. A big set of shoes to fill  by Mr. Lagercrantz, I think. Early reviews of the book are looking kind of on the fence some stating we won't be disappointed (Amazon Reviewers) by the newest addition in the series, others more harshly criticizing the attempt (Goodreads reviewers) The New York Times review also seems to be a bit of a lukewarm reception.
There seems to be speculation of an unfinished manuscript...

So my question is...
I would like to know if there is an unfinished unpublished manuscript, when it will be published if at all and who will be worthy of the task? Stieg Larsson has been gone for more than 10 years now...I'm just saying

When will it be available to us regular folks?...
With staggered release dates, some as early as Aug 27 it looks like US book patrons will be able to pur…

Writer Spotlight: N. N. Canales

Image
Name :: N. N. Canales
Content Title :: Sometimes I Don't Love My Mother

In the Author's Words :: My genre is dramatic fiction. At a young age something inside me told me I would one day write a book, and, at the time, it seemed ridiculous because I didn't know how.Now I've written that book, but I'm not writer; I just thought I had a compelling story to tell.


So what's it about? :: Sunny Beach, Sydney Greene's fictional home, is a  town of irony, more metaphor and paradox than a finger of sand along the  ocean. Caught in the emotional crossfire between an adoring father and  vapid mother, she is forced to navigate the perilous path of childhood,  adolescence and adulthood with one parental arm tied behind her back.
The book's title is at times a statement, mission statement, and battle cry.
(18+ adult content)

Mail Drop

Happy Thursday She Readers!

There is nothing more exciting for a book blogger than going to the post office and receiving books from authors. Especially a New York Times Bestselling author.
....(except maybe eating cake and winning the lottery) but you get my point right?

So this is my first mail drop post because it is the first time I have received a hard copy from an author. I am hoping for many more!
So as you can see I am celebrating a lot of new 'firsts' on She Reads. Thank you all for taking the journey with me.


Some important Firsts

Excuse me while I drool
I really love the cowboy hat wearing, hunky, muscular, bare chested, ab exposure in low riding jeans eye candy that grace many of her book covers. Whew doggy did you get all that? A quick glance between the covers reveals some steamy mo…

Wednesday Wine and A Book

Image
Wednesday Wine and a Book segment is for the grown and sexy adults 21+ who enjoy a tasty adult beverage along with their favorite author. So raise your glass. It's always 5pm on #WWAB
Wednesday Wine and A BookThis week's theme is Barefoot
This week's Wine is from Barefoot Winery  follow them on Twitter @BarefootWine




Barefoot MerlotThis wine is smooth and supple, it goes down easy a medium bodied red with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

The perfect combo of cherry, boysenberry, plum and chocolate flavors. Raised right, it’s well rounded with mild tannins.

This classic varietal is well known for its rich personality and taste. Silky blend of red cherry and plum flavors make the Merlot a delightful treat. A mocha finish is complimented by hints of smoky vanilla oak.

Founded in 1986, Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey introduced Barefoot Cellars wines. "We loved the name and the concept of being barefoot and living the carefree lifestyle," stated Harvey.

Dollar Tree Book Finds: RiverWorld

Image
I like to wander around to see what kind of neat things I can find for a dollar. Yep a dollar. So I often find myself in Family Dollar, Dollar Tree and Dollar General. I recently discovered that they have books for a dollar at Dollar Tree and not just paperbacks. Family Dollar and Dollar General can range from $1-$8. Be advised Family Dollar and General Dollar only get books sporadically, However Dollar Tree usually has a dedicated section to books. If you see something you like definitely snatch it up because it won't be there forever. Don't feel bad about being book savvy.

Granted the books are not the hottest thing out right now, but it's a great way to find authors you have not read yet and try them out without spending a ton of money. I mean seriously, I love browsing in Dollar Stores but it's true, I have never said "Honey I am going to the Dollar Store to buy books." Well as you can see, that has definitely changed. Follow this post to get books for a…

I am not one for big parties and such..($10's and $20's are just fine!) ....so what should I do to celebrate this blogging milestone?



I am going out and get some cupcakes...and maybe some wine... we're only a few days away from Wednesday right?  But since it is ultimately a book blog, I guess I should suggest a book.
Hmm Lets see!

In the Author's Words :: As someone who struggles with a severe mental illness, I wanted to write a book that would educate people in the most simple way- through experience.
