What you might have missed on my blog
So had my first graphic design class and I am the oldest one in the class even older than the teacher. 🙁 LOL Oh well. My only fear is it seems most of these teens have had graphic design in High School and I will be way behind. The lady beside me took illustrator in HS…so bright side, maybe she can help me…lol. They were playing around making all sorts of cool things and I made squiggly lines and a lima bean looking cartoon face….lol.:) Our first project is an animal logo, we have to make out of shapes, and other things we learn…hmmm should be interesting.
Other than that not much happened this week. I didn’t have a great reading week as I seem to have found some duds. 🙁
The weather this week hasn’t been too bad it dipped into the 30’s and then back up to the 60’s. I like this kind of winter but I am waiting for the boom to happen…lol.

From the Publisher
- The Unseeing -Sourcebook sent to me for a blog tour, it’s a historical mystery about a young woman who’s has been sentenced to hang but is she guilty? Or hiding something?
- At Close Range – Another book in the Tracer series sent to me by Simon and Schuster, I really need to try this series. I have been told they are stand alones but it drives me crazy reading out of order! But might try it. 🙂
Thanks Sourcebook and Simon and Schuster!!
- A Charming Cure – Book two in this series, now I have book one and two…when I get more I will start this one. .99 🙂
- The Night Bird – Detective novel that was in the Kindle First selection so I got it for 1.99 and it sounds good, so fingers crossed. 🙂
Love it when things on my amazon wishlist go free! 🙂
Books read last week
See I knew last week was an anomaly cause I never read/listen to that many books in one week….lol.
- Some Danger Involved – It was a decent start to a series and a crime fighting duo. No Holmes and Watson but still an interesting historical mystery.
- The Rising – Okay so I couldn’t help but just start this one right away and I really liked it. It’s the kind of Sci-fi I can handle, very light…lol.
- Moon Called – This was a fun, light easy kind of listen and I really enjoyed it. 🙂
Gave up at about 49%, I really wanted to like it but it just bored me and I didn’t care for the characters all that much.
- The River at Night – Okay so far, not really gotten to the river yet to see how that goes.
- The Darkest Secret -I put it on hold to listen to The Rising and to be honest not sure if I will finish it. It is in two MP3 CD’s and I finished one, and really don’t care for any of the characters, a part of me wants to know what happened to Coco but on the other hand I really don’t care…lol. Anyone read or listened to it? Should I keep going?
- Murder, Madness & Love – I just started it as I contemplate whether I want to finish Darkest Secret. 🙂
