It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

~ here are the new books in my house this week ~

Broken Trust by Sharon Dunn, blog

"I need you to trust me."

Impossible! Sheriff Christine Norris still remembers the heartache from the last time she gave Special Agent Wyatt Green her trust. And she certainly doesn't believe him now, when he claims some of her residents are involved in a dangerous militia. But Christine can't ignore the fact that someone who may be tied to the militia has kidnapped an innocent boy. And when she's almost killed in a fiery explosion, Christine realized Wyatt may be the only person she can trust to protect her. Even if she's still not sure she can trust him again with her heart. . .



The Butterfly Effect by Andy Andrews

Every single thing you do matters. You have been created as one of a kind. You have been created in order to make a difference. You have within you the power to change the world.








The Lost Choice by Andy Andrews

When a young boy finds a mysterious object in the creek near his home, it starts a series of events that could change the world--again. Many search for the ancient relic's secret, but few find its true purpose. What choices will each make--or lose?

A work of both scholarship and imagination, The Lost Choice is a legend of personal discovery--a reminder of the opportunities we each are give.





The Boy Who Changed the World by Andy Andrews

Reveals the incredible truth that everything YOU do matters — what you did yesterday, what you do today, and what you will do tomorrow. Every choice you make, good or bad, can make a difference.








The Endless Sky by Kathryn Lynn Davis

Phillipe de Vallombrosa is lured tot he Dakota Badlands by the same dream that seduced his infamous father--a drive to succeed over the forces of nature in a feral land. He vows to stand defiant against the ruthless enemies determined to destroy him, evan as ambition leads him into the treacherous territory of seduction, betrayal, and love...

No longer the untamed girl Phillipe knew as a child, Mianne is now an elegant woman whose poised exterior hides a burning desire for one man--Phillipe. Though her marriage to Phillipe is part of an indomitable family's plan to conquer the vast land, the shared love she finds int he arms of her new husband is as powerful and dangerous as the rival who dares to claim Phillipe for herself...


I haven't received any review books, won any contests or received any books as a gift. I have added several to my ereader, most were even free. I'm getting better at pinning my new ebooks, 2013's books.

added to my ereader: (kindle app, html, etc.) ~I find out about free/discounted ebook at amazon mostly from Pixel of Ink.

I got a new calendar this week! 
And why is this listed here? It is December after all. Good question, here's why. I've been following Tober and was able to score the calendar. This isn't just a cat calendar, it is a calendar of library cats! I'm hoping to share some of the great cats with you on Thursdays.
