$25 Amazon/PP Summer Seasons of Books GA Hop-1-WW-Ends 9/21

Thursday, June 20, 2024



I have so many authors who I love--and don't ask me which genre is my absolute favorite--it can change day by day depending on the book I have just read!! I have been known to read everything--including the back of cereal boxes and all other items I find on shelves at the grocery store!! Of course as a diabetic and having high cholesterol I almost have to. However I read the entire box--not just the nutrition facts!!

I have been attempting to read books in the order in which I downloaded them to my Kindle. Then one of my fav authors has a book out--oops--lets read that one first. I have so many on my list that I sometimes wonder if I will ever get through them all--especially since I am somewhat interested in politics and have been spending time watching the news. What a crazy world we are living in---And I seem to be watching movies occasionally as well as Doctor appointments and I just joined a gym!!--All take away from my reading time.

Such is my life at the moment--but everything could change in a minute in my world!! I just keep going with the flow!!!!

If you could use $25 (who couldn't?) then get down there and fill out the rafflecopter. Then please go and check out what the others have to say and are giving away.

Happy Summer!!

Book Review-Void (Crocodile Dreamings Book 3) Graham Wilson

Wednesday, June 19, 2024



This is a novel that will make you wonder and a bit sad. She was in jail for killing her lover--but she must have had a reason--she won't tell them. She just keeps saying she's guilty and is planning on taking her own life after her babies are born. The one person who could have gotten to her was in a massive accident. Everyone considered him dead--but somehow he makes it.

I didn't quite understand what crocodiles had to do with it all---but it certainly did. A lot of this story can get kind of slow--but then it gets really fast. It was definitely worth the read. I probably would have been better off reading the 1st and 2nd in this series before this one.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

She sits alone in an empty cell. They say she killed her lover, fed his body to the crocodiles. She will tell no one what happened on that last fateful day. She knows an awful secret but will hide it forever. It is this man's diary. She has hidden that too. There is a buried box which no one must find. The search gets closer. She must stop them.

One person, a good friend, could help her. But now he and his helicopter have vanished. It was in a vast empty wilderness where nobody goes. Soon after helicopter wreckage is found floating in the sea There was a huge flood. He is presumed dead.

About the Author: (from Amazon)



Graham Wilson grew up in a remote aboriginal community in Australia's Northern Territory. After becoming a veterinarian, he worked on large cattle properties across this place. During this time he survived an attack by a large saltwater crocodile.

He started writing a memoir to capture his family's story particularly that of his parents. He also wanted to record stories he heard about other amazing people who lived in this remote land.

After writing his memoir he has gone on to write 12 novels including two series and two standalone books. One series, set in the NT has crocodiles and their importance to the aboriginal people as a central part of the story. It is a story of a visitor and a local man and how their affair turns to tragedy. It is built around the real and authentic places of the NT. The other series is set in a house in the inner Sydney suburb of Balmain and a small girl who lived here a hundred years ago.

Graham now lives in the heart of Sydney, in the historic Rocks district, a short walk from Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. When he gets the chance, he returns to Australia's Outback to continue to hear and tell its stories.

Book Review-The Royal Companion-An epic love story (The Companion series Book 1)-Tanya Bird

Tuesday, June 18, 2024



This was an historical romance at a time and in a place that I am not sure actually existed. It was totally engaging and readable. There are some sections which might be a little hard for some people to stomach--especially the way women were used. It put me in mind of the Handmaidens Tale!

It is definitely worth the read and I will continue reading this series as it ends leaving a few big questions!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Bound by tradition. Now they must follow the rules.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOOLLAHRA DIGITAL LITERARY AWARDS 2017

Companions are the kingdom’s most beautiful and educated women—possessions of Syrasan’s royal men.

Aldara is sixteen when she is sold to the obnoxious crown prince as a gift for his brother. Forced to leave the only life she has ever known, Aldara is sent to Archdale Castle, where she is mentored to become Prince Tyron’s perfect Companion. But no amount of lessons can prepare her for the troubled man marked by war. He sees straight through the polished exterior presented to him. He sees her.

All Prince Tyron wants is privacy to grieve. When his brother gifts him a Companion upon his return, he is forced to embrace a tradition he has so far managed to avoid. Except Aldara is not like the others. She walks with her face to the sun and arms swinging. Her laughter makes him forget the lie. But if they ignore the rules that safeguard them, there will be consequences.

This is book one in The Companion series. If you enjoy dark medieval romance, then this epic tale of love against all odds is for you.

Trigger warning: This book contains sexual violence, death, and dark themes intended for mature audiences.
