Blog Updates AND The #NYTimes Top 15 (25) Best Sellers for the week ending May 25th, 2014!

Welcome! Another week of GREAT books is here! Posted by NOON every Sunday for your reading pleasure!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
Thank you for ALL of our soldiers, people in any Armed Forces, the Reserves, retirees, and MORE for ALL you do to keep us safe here at home! WE SALUTE YOU!
To those who have passed away while protecting us, WE SALUTE YOU!
To those who have passed away later, after serving, WE SALUTE YOU!

What's going on at the blog?
Let's see . . . this week I have taken a lot of time reading the Buzz Book Fall/Winter 2014 book, the first chapters out of 30 NEW releases releasing throughout the rest of the year, and two or three books into January 2015! Wow! I've read all of them except for two so far! I'm about done. I know this one on business I won't be requesting from the publisher, and I don't know what the last book is, but it is Non-Fiction. Perhaps a Memoir? I haven't come across any of those yet, so I'm going to guess that's what it is.
I have SO MANY BOOKS now! Wow! They ALL sound heavenly! I'm GEEKED!

I have also set up some Blog Tours, too! There will also be another Kindle Giveaway for June I will be participating in! Speaking of that, have you entered the TWO KINDLE GIVEAWAYS THAT ARE GOING ON NOW? If you are here at the blog, they are in the LEFT side column! If you are not at the blog, I'll provide the links for you! Don't feel bad if you haven't entered yet because even I have NOT done so YET!
Why, you ask? I've been SO busy with my own computer dying! You know I have put up notices last month and this month stating I was having computer issues. I called the Geek Squad this week, and got BAD NEWS! They felt my hard drive was DEAD! YEP! IT'S DEAD! The computer JUST turned 1yr old, too, which really makes me wonder WHY??? It's a Sony, and we were so happy with this Sony that we bought the same thing again, just newer. That's pretty pathetic that the hard drive died JUST AFTER the warranty ended! I think they PLAN IT! Grrrrrr!! Thankfully, this one, knock on wood, has been shown to be tried and true to us! Phew! Plus, I have the Geek Squad coverage, so it's FREE to have the computer completely fixed! All except for buying the hard drive, which really isn't all that bad at $80. I thought it would be a lot more, but I lucked out!

What's coming up THIS week?
This week is busy! There is a Blog Tour for the book, "Binds That Tie" by Kate Moretti, author of the NOW New York Times Best Seller! Yes! Just this week it hit the list! Congratulations to Kate Moretti! This will take place on Wednesday, May 28th of this week.

I have another Blog Tour for Thursday, May 29th, for "Almost Royalty" by Courtney Hamilton releases Thursday, May 29th! It is a Romantic Comedy! Sounds funny from the little I've read of it so far!

I need to do a Stacking the Shelves or a What's in Your Mailbox because I've gotten several books in the mail this week, too! One was AMAZING!!! It's a paperback galley, but they punched holes in the white cover and hung a necklace that has keys on it! It was beautiful even though it's the white galley! It's from Atria Publishing, and you hear how authors who have been picked up by them RAVE about how nice they are to them? Well, they are JUST as wonderfully nice to us Bloggers! This was a 'thank you' for the reading and reviewing we do for them! I say You're Welcome!!! I LOVE it! The name of this book is "The Hidden Girl" by Louise Millar, a stylish and suspenseful domestic thriller! I'll tell you more about it later! They have a photo in with the paperwork, and it looks like it could be a photo of the cover? It's a full 8-1/2 X 11 size piece of paper, and it looks very dark, a swirly at the top with the words, 'a novel' written inside the swirly, an old victorian house with leaf barren trees on each side of the front part of the house, a spotlight is on the door, but it hits the top cover of the porch more so than the door. The title is right below the spotlight in white, the word The is in print and Hidden is in cursive, and GIRL is in print in all caps. Hmmm! The title is underlined in a squiggly pink line and the author's name is in print in the pink color also. Pretty cool! It takes place in the English countryside, far away from anything around! Ooooo! I can't WAIT to start reading this one!! I LOVE ATRIA BOOKS!!! A HUGE "Thank You" to them!!!
From the Story Plant I received "Shaking Out the Dead" by K M Cholewa and it's cover is eery! It looks like a ghost-like figure is sitting at the table afar from where we are at next to a coffee cup. I LOVE Story Plant, too!

Well, you'll have to come back to see my TBR list and see the covers!
