Dollar Tree Book Finds

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…

this review may contain spoilers

Yay! We are back on the Vampire Book Train!

The second installment of this action packed horror saga by Author Michael W Holman opens up right where we left off in Resolve and Retribution.

ok so where were we?
Picking up right where we left off in Bush Park, We immediately find our couple Ben and Tabitha under a sensual attack from Victoria. The stakes are higher and Victoria is bent on reeking maximum damage!
As you know from book 1 the very crazy Lilith killed off the council, and basically had her way with Tabitha whom she had claimed centuries before Ben was even born, before she gave up the ash herself after the alien tech worked against her.

Wednesday Wine and A BookToday's theme is Seven Sisters

The climatic diversity of the Breede River valley, akin to a Mediterranean climate, influences the Seven Sisters wines with summers being hot and dry. Temeratures averaging 30°C, sometimes peaking at 40°C on the hottest of days, makes irrigation essential. Winters are generally colder than in the Western Cape’s more coastal regions, allowing the vines to achieve proper dormancy. Rainfall is largely contained to the cold winter months, when vines are dormant and can store up resources for the growing season. The average annual precipitation is generally below 400 millimetres (15.75 in). Soil types are varied. Surrounding the river, they are mainly alluvial, with some sandy loam. Higher in the mountains, they are more rocky and ston…
