Hi! Thank you for stopping by and commenting. That is so great that your family got you a new computer for Mother's Day. :) As much as I know I should be enjoying my daughter's early years, it is exhausting! I'm definitely looking forward to a little more easiness. Hope you have a fabulous day!

You were a busy reader last week and appears you will be a busy reader this week also.

Thanks for visiting Butterflies and Candles today. I always appreciate visitors who leave comments.

I asked for and did not get a review copy of The Social Climber's Handbook, how was it Lori?

Last week was a good week for me I read the entire Morganville Vampire series that had sitting on my To Be Read Shelf books 1-8, read the first 4 books in Lili StCrow's Strange Angels series and one review e-book ARC copy of Predators of Darkness-Aftermath by Leonard Hilley...

Reading today new release by Maria Zannini, Apocalypse Rising which is her sequel to Touch of Fire and so far so good!

I like the covers to "Skein of The Crime" and "Unraveled" like the titles too for mysteries as they are "different".. Happy Reading Lori!
Reading next not sure but probably a couple of review books sent to me that are overdue!

I have read several reviews of Ethan Cross's THE SHEPHERD and I believe it would be a book that I would really enjoy. I am interested in reading your review of this book.
