For Review:

The Green Bronze Mirror By: Lynne Ellison

As for my Kindle here's a list of the book that are currently on it.

Under the Dome By: Stephen King
Pride and Prejudice By: Jane Austen
My Soul to Lose By: Rachel Vincent
Suite Scarlett By: Maureen Johnson

I don't have to many on it yet because I'm still trying to figure out what books I want to own and what books will be future Kindle books. Plus that Stephen King book is MASSIVE and is going to take me awhile to read.

I do have other books on order, but I'll post about those as they come in the mail. I hope everyone had a great holiday! I know we did here. I'll be back posting more again this week. I owe many reviews which I'll be adding to that list today and tomorrow after finishing up a couple books I'm currently reading. Sorry that they aren't listed here, I've just been reading to fast to keep up, not to mention I haven't been around all that much. Anwyays... That's been the last 3 weeks for me, what all did you guys get?

My Ratings

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down. If you would like me to review a book, please contact me or view my Contact Information and Review Policy for further details.

5 Stars - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
4 Stars - I Really liked/Loved it.
3 Stars - I liked it/Was pretty good.
2 Stars - It was, eh okay.
1 Star - It just wasn't for me.
