#Blog Updates AND The #NYTimes Top 15 (25) #Bestsellers for the week ending June 29, 2014

Welcome to another week of GREAT books! This is posted every Sunday by NOON and sometimes earlier!
How has your week been? I hope full of great reading! I only got to read two books and write two reviews this week as I got became ill. Bummer in the summertime! Oh, well. There is next week. Why don't we get right to what is going on at the blog and then to the books!

FIRST, WHAT'S GOING ON AT THE BLOG THIS WEEK? There could be other things going on, too, but I'm sorry to say I'm not feeling well at all, so my mind does not want to work with me! Don't you hate that! I couldn't even read the last two days, which drove me crazy! But . . . oh, well. You can't fight it so you have to roll with the punches. Make SURE to check back here frequently in case I did forget something!
OH!!! I DID forget something! There will be a NEW Kindle HDX Giveaway, too! As for the specific date, that has not yet been announced yet . . . so check back! It's the JULY Giveaway!

One Lavender Ribbon by Heather Burch - 2.5 Star HERE! - ACK! Unless you like unbelievably syrupy sweet, push-over characters. Not me! I would encourage you to read the 3-Star ratings for this book as those ARE spot-on, giving you the the pro's and the con's. 
(You see, this cover fooled me. Don't let it fool you OR, you could try out reading the first chapter and base your decision on that! Although, sometimes you don't get the entire first chapter because you get all of the beginning pages in the front of the book, such as the cover page, again, The Table of Contents. the dedication page, and maybe a few others. You'll have to see what you get.)

Kindle Price: $4.99

That Night by Chevy Stevens - 4-Star! Click HERE! for the review! I LOVED it, but it did drag on a bit in the first 50% to be exact, as I read it on the Kindle. Other than that, go read the review! Who doesn't LOVE Chevy Stevens! Well worth the read and the wait between her books!

Kindle Price: $10.99
