Welcome to my Fool for Books Giveaway Hop.  This hop runs April 1 to April 7 and is hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.  You can win lots of new reads, so click here for a complete list of blogs participating in the hop.

Thanks to NAL, I am giving away a copy of Children of the Underground by Trevor Shane! This is the second book in the Children of Paranoia series.  I love the cover.

About the book:


Even if you have choices, sometimes you only have one worth making.

The war had been raging for as long as anyone could remember. The secret, endless war between two opposing sides—one good, one evil. Neither side knows which is which; it is kill or be killed in an invisible conflict where assassination is the weapon of choice.

When she was just seventeen, Maria was pulled into this secret war and they killed her lover and stole her child. Now they are telling her to go home. To ignore what she knows is going on in the shadows all around her. They told Maria to forget all she’d lost. The trouble is, some things simply can’t be forgotten.

Now, with a loose-cannon killer at her side, Maria is going to do whatever it takes to get back what belongs to her. And that means starting a war of her own

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Maybe It’s Spring? Finally??


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

It’s finally starting to warm up around here, so I am optimistic that it will eventually be warm enough to be considered “spring.” Probably not until summer, but, oh, well.  Had a few hectic days this week.

My lease was up on my Jeep, so I got a new car.

This is a lease, too, and it was a little cheaper than my Jeep, so score! It’s a better vehicle, in my opinion, and it has SYNC and some other high tech stuff that I haven’t figured out yet.  I like that the car is lower to the ground, because it’s easier to get the puppies in and out of it.

This is Pixie.  I bought her last year, after realizing that Blondie, no matter how much I wanted her to be the horse for me, never would be.  She didn’t want to be a saddle horse, or a show horse, so I finally decided we would both be happier if she went somewhere that she didn’t have to work so hard.  Pixie is a 5 year old Morgan, and I don’t believe she’s been shown under saddle yet, so this year will be a learning experience for both of us.  She is still very green, but she’s honest and wants to please, and I am so happy with her.  More to follow.

Here is Poppy at Sonic.  Since it was so nice yesterday, I convinced Dean that we all needed to go to Sonic for some ice cream.  The puppies were a bit apprehensive at Sonic because with the warm weather there was a lot going on, but they were both so well behaved. 

There was a lot for Bumble to look at while we ate our ice cream at Sonic.  When we got home, they both crashed, exhausted from their outing.  LOL.  We’ll go to the Car Hop next time and get fried Oreos.
