I Pledge to Rate


please, please no strong smells:

I'm very sensitive to them

  • Please no tea
  • Onions!
  • Allergic to Strawberries
  • I don't like Dark Chocolate
  • I am not a fan of pink.
  • Junk Journals
  • Napkins
  • Please no Religious items
  • No facial cleansers or lotions
  • No Cadbury creme eggs please.
  • No clam chowder

I spend a lot of time reading, crocheting, swapping, pen paling, cooking, trying a new baking recipe; they aren't all successes!

๐Ÿ“š Favorite Books ๐Ÿ“š

Cynthia Eden:

Different world building! Just a nice mix of paranormal books with a bit of romantic suspense thrown in.

  • Bound by Blood Book One of Bound Series
  • The Wolf Within Book One of Purgatory Series
  • Bite the Dust Book One of Blood and Moonlight Series
  • The Devil in Disguise Book One of Bad Things Series
  • Protecting Piper Book One of Wilde Ways Series

Nalini Singh:

This is one of those authors that you find and are so happy that you did! The stories continue into each other so reading in order is recommended.

  • Slave to Sensation Book One of Psy-Changeling Series
  • Silver Silence Book One of the continuation series Psy-Changeling Trinity

Ilona Andrews:

I don't normally enjoy books that have the same character throughout; but Andrews changed my mind!

  • Burn for Me Book One of Hidden Legacy Series
  • Clean Sweep Book One of Innkeeper Series
  • Magic Bites Book One of Kate Daniels Series (most of them read)

Seana Kelly:

This was a chance find that just hooked me in; ongoing! Book 4 just came out.

  • The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar Book One of Sam Quinn Series

M.J. Haag:

This was a shocker from the first book. At the height of Covid lockdown, these books sucked me in and made being shut inside fun. You can never go wrong with fae, zombies and finding love.

  • Demon Ember Book One of Resurrection Chronicles

Sandy Williams:

Another rare find, took me into a world of space travel and strength.

  • Shades of Treason Book One of Anomaly Series

Shannon Mayer:

I have seen a lot of these going around now; but getting older myself for some reason had me all in for trying it out and I am very glad that I did! Were Bigfoots, Witches, Fae, Incubus - I mean really with so much thrown in how could things not go wrong?

  • Midlife Bounty Hunter Book One of Forty Proof Series

Comment: OMG, I been wanting this book forever seems like. LOL I am gonna be diving into it as soon as possible. Can't wait to start wearing the socks. I love these.
Response: Socks and a good book!
Comment: I absolutely love them. My child ended up opening the package so I couldn't wait to see it then. Thank you so much. The cookies are gonna disappear, the notebook is definitely gonna get used and I can't wait to play the game with my spouse.
Response: lol Child helps stop the suspense! Happy Early Christmas

jessica rated for BLC: September What Did You Read? on Oct 3, 2023
Comment: I had to lol at you breaking your yarn winder. I have done that quite often. The KnitPicks one I have I have learned to take apart & fix so that I don't have to buy another one. A lot of the books are from genres I got introduced to via fanfiction. I will have to check some of those out. For some reason it didn't occur to me there could be more then wolves & birds for shifters. I love the pie chart you used as well! I have plans on adding one to my reading journal at the end of the year.
Response: Mine was the plastic gear inside that snapped; making the yarn not do the crisscross it needed too. I love my new one, all metal and I know it's a knock off of the Stanwood but it's amazing. And a shoulder work out...oh my
Comment: What a fun swap! The spider is adorable! I have him hanging out in my office :-) I can't wait to read the book! I'll have to message you when I finish it.
Response: :D I hope you like the book, and all the Halloween goodies. I couldn't resist adding the book when I read through your profile.
Comment: Iโ€™m sorry for the very late rating. I enjoyed hearing about what you read.
Response: thank you for the heart :D I keep wondering if I need to change up how I write it up...is it better with more pictures? less pictures. More detail? less?
Comment: OMG WISH BEAR! I was SO delighted to open this swap!! Thank you so much for the treats and the book sounds really interesting! Thank you so much!! can't wait to make some tea!
Response: Happy dance, I am so very glad you like everything. Happy tea & reading!
Comment: Wow, you are very organized! Thanks for sharing. How do you decide when to DNF a book?
Response: If I can't feel the characters, or there are tons of errors I give up. If I get 15-20% into a book and I just want to scream at the characters, I read the end of it and call it a day. But that means it still has to go on my DNF list. Thank you for the heart! :D Happy reading.

Comment: as usual, i love the way you organize your data!
Response: Thank you :D Thank you too for the heart.
Comment: beautiful layout! I thought my month was bad with 3 DNFs -- ha.
Response: I do end up with a lot of DNF when I have kindle unlimited, hopefully that slows down after this month :D (Sept). Happy reading!
user6937 rated for BLC: August What Did You Read? on Sep 3, 2023
Comment: I'm afraid I don't understand your rating system. You list 30 books but it doesn't look like you read any of them - what does DNF mean? Do Not Finish?
Response: DNF is didn't finish, the ones that are rated were read. 2/5 are ones I feel dont deserve a mention but I didnt DNF them
Comment: Oh wow! I LOVE this cookbook! One of my best friends had showed me a video from the worst of the worst section--the pickle cheesecake. I love that some of my favorite recipes are here--like cathedral windows (haven't made those in years!) And the adorable owl!!!
Response: I really hope you enjoy making the recipes :D I couldn't resist sending the owl.
Comment: Thank you! Have fun at the concert :)
Response: <3 Thank you for the heart, and I hope I do have fun. Little worried about the crowds :(
Comment: Thank you so much for all the lovely writing papers and your note! Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Diane
Response: <3 I hope you enjoy it all, thank you for the heart
