The #NYTimes Top 15 (25) #BestSellers for the week ending April 20, 2014

Welcome! To another week of great books! Posted by NOON every Sunday or sometimes earlier! Thank you for coming by!

Well, I had one heck of a week! Last week after writing this article, my computer crashed! I was able to send out two posts letting you know what was going on at least, so I hope you got them as I was using hubby's computer - UGH! You know how it is when it's just not your computer! I had to do the last of my tax wrap-up using an online service, and THAT kept my computer running! I couldn't believe it! (YES! I AM a procrastinator when it comes to doing those! I ADMIT IT!) I was done, I just had to go through and do the last run-through, and I didn't want to do it! I HAD to do it, so I did. After that, I tried to fix whatever it was that was wrong, but "I" could not fix it on my own. I tried again the next day by removing old things,  didn't work. So I'm bummed out about a day or so when I remember I have the Geek Squad!! I called them and they fixed it over the phone! They are able to get into your computer, you know how they do that. I have to call them back because my Toolbar is so TINY! Something is also causing this computer to load SO S L O W L Y! They have more work to do! Lucky for them! LOL! They are great! I LOVE having them!!

This week I finished reading: 
The Collector of Dying Breaths (Book 6) by M J Rose - EXCELLENT! LOVED it! Watch for my review of it this week!
Now I'm reading A Shining Light (A Home to Amana, Book 3) by Judith Miller. I'm in a Blog Tour for that book, but I don't know my Tour Stop date. I can't find it in my email, either, so I'm in trouble! I'll find it. That book is a historical one about the Amana's, who I have never heard of before this book. This is a new one for me. Different lifestyles and they seem much more strict than the Amish! I can't believe it!
I'll talk more about the reviews for these books in a moment.

THIS WEEK, March 21-27th 'COMING UP' AT THE BLOG is what seems like "REVIEW WEEK"! Here they are:
*Review: Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover (Tuesday, 3-22 - this was supposed to be last week, but my computer died, so it is THIS WEEK!)
*Review: A Promise in Pieces, Quilts of Love - Every Quilt Has a Story by Emily T Wierenga - Wednesday, April 23rd, sponsored by LitFuse Publicity - LitFuse and their authors always have AMAZING GIVEAWAYS! I just don't know what it is . . . yet, so you'll have to mark your calendars to come back HERE "this" Wednesday!
*Review: The Collector of Dying Breaths, Book 6 by M J Rose. I read this as a standalone, and it can be read as a standalone, yet it is part of a series. I am planning to write and post this review tomorrow, Monday OR Thursday, I'm not to sure what today will bring yet, so I can't set this review date in stone. This was an outstanding book! I LOVED it! If you like perfume, oils, lotions, a little Black Magic taking place in the late 1500's during Queen Catherine's reign, and the present day as well, you're going to LOVE this book! I did! I want to read ALL the books in this series now!
*Review: Monday, March 28th, I know this is going into next week, but I thought I would include it here anyway so you don't miss it! "Prejudice Meets Pride" by Rachael Anderson!

The next week's reviews for April 28th to May 4th - so far and more to come: - I have a book about sewing!
Little Green Dresses - 50 Original Patterns for Repurposed Dresses, Tops, Skirts, and More by Tina Sparkles.
A Shining Light by Judith Miller - this is that book I am in a tour with, but I can't find the tour company or my review date! I lost that when my computer died.

I prefer to devote one entire day to each book review I do, which is why I spread them out so much. Heck, the author spent MONTHS or a YEAR writing them, the LEAST I can do is devote one entire day to their book!
