Book: Operation Endeavor Author: Christi Snow Article Type: Review Author Goodreads / Library Thing About the Book: Colton Robertson left his career in the Air Force… … to come home and help his family heal. Unfortunately, his reception was not quite what he’d hoped for and he ended up as roommate to hippy dippy yoga instructor Penelope Pruitt. Penelope has spent her life under the restrictive thumb of her parents and she doesn’t want to do the same with the straight-laced, serious Colton. But when it becomes apparent that Penelope’s life is in danger, Colton won’t settle for anyone else protecting Penelope besides him. Opposites attract and that’s definitely the case with Colton and Penelope. On the surface, they don’t have anything in common, but as the sparks fly and the danger ramps up, their passion is inevitable. Read from January 01 to 04, 2013 Read for Review (Author) Overall Rating: 4.00 Story Rating: 3.75 Character Rating: 4.25 First thought when finished: WOW! That was quite a wild ride with a twist that I just didn’t see coming. What I thought of the Characters: This is where I think Christi’s writing shines in this story! “You’re just a great big […]

Blogger Confession: Christmas Blogging Vacations Rock! I will admit that this year I really needed a break.  I ended up taking a longer one than originally planned (December 18th till Jan 3) but it was so worth it!  I feel rested, excited, and  ready to tackle 2013.  I did get quite a bit done over my vacation! I was able to get some really good books read, a brilliant slogan for my year thought up (OK not brilliant but humor me), organized ALL of my books online (paper, kindle, and audio), and started making my seriously series reads list (still a bit to go on that one).  So it was a very productive time off! Things I did: Changed my header and theme a bit!  I am going to be having fun with it all year-long but I think it is appropriate for my “year” theme.  I am not changing my button and my logo will be in all headers this year. Started working on my personal blog which will go live towards the end of Jan.  This is actually where I started and it keeps me accountable for some life changes.  I was hoping to be ready to go […]

Blogger Confession: Is this Business or Personal?

Blogger Confession: I am going to admit upfront that this post comes after reading some things going around the book blogsphere lately. These posts and tweets have been about what should or should not be posted on book blogs.  This particular type of subject has always irked me because there is plenty of room for all of us: the promoters, the reviewers, the talkers, and the meme enthusiast. Will we all have the same readership? No! Is there any way to please everyone? No! Should you quit doing something because someone told you that they were tired of it? NO! The first question you should ask yourself when starting any new blogging venture is whether it is “personal” or “business”.  I am not saying it can’t be both but you need to have an idea of whether you are trying to grow into something that can make you money or if you are happy with the rewards of making new friends.  Just having a vision will help you decide on subject, approach, and long-term plans.   Having a vision will also help you to determine what type of people you need in your tribe (those people who provide a warm safe […]

How Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor put me in the Holiday Spirit: Don’t stories that involve kids and rescue dogs always pull at your heartstrings? This one even started with a letter to Santa–how could you not be in the Holiday spirit after that?
