Welcome Peppermint Pattie!

For years I have run this blog on my own, but have always invited my book-loving family and/or friends to post reviews of books on my site if they are interested.  I enjoy this hobby and I am always trying it share it with others.  I finally have a taker!

Introducing...

Peppermint Pattie!

Peppermint Pattie has a passion for reading and is excited to share her love of books with you! 

Currently Peppermint Pattie spends a lot of time reading board books (to her new grandbabies), but her favorite genre is murder mystery novels.   However, Peppermint Pattie can be persuaded to read a variety of clean, engaging novels outside of that genre.  She enjoys fiction and nonfiction alike.   She was recently convinced to read The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater and loved it.   
 
Peppermint Pattie will be posting occasional reviews, or whatever else she feels like saying in regards to books. 

Welcome Peppermint Pattie!

Maze Runner Movie Trailer!



I read James Dashner's Maze Runner books pretty much as they were published (or earlier!)... so of course I was excited they were making it into a movie.  But with the -blah-  recently produced out of all the YA-book to movie attempts I was a little worried about how it might turn out. (I mean honestly, I read the Divergent book series and the trailers don't even make me the tiniest bit excited about that movie).  But the Maze Runner trailer seems to have settled those fears for me.  *crossing-my-fingers* that the movie turns out well!  I don't know who any of the actors are (which I think is a good thing) and it looks like they may have a done a decent job on it... It will probably be a cliff-notes and less gruesome version of the books. I hope it does work out well because I enjoyed the series.  It can't be worse than what they did to Twilight...

Feeling Lucky? Bag-o-Swag giveaway!


Over the handful of years of I have been book blogging I have collected a lot SWAG (see picture).

Which is awesome.

BUT all of the swag has been hanging in a book bag in my spare closet. Collecting dust.

Shameful!

And I have come to realize there won't really be a time in my life (or at least not the near future) where I will have a place to put all of the random bookmarks, posters, buttons, etc that I have collected.

However, I am SURE there is someone out there in the blog-o-sphere who has THE WALL.

You know the one.

The wall that is covered with all of their favorite inspiration things; quotes, pictures, book jackets, autographs, etc. (I had THE WALL as a teenager. It was madness and I loved it).

Therefore, I want someone to ENJOY my bag-o-swag.  I picked out a handful of precious (to me) items and I am giving the rest away! It is nothing fancy, but there are some fun autographs in there; Lauren Oliver, Jeri Smith-Ready, Kelley Armstrong, Melissa Marr, Alyson Noel, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Lisa Desrochers, Kiki Hamilton, Sophie Jordan, Kirsten Hubbard, etc..

Just enter the rafflectoper below for a chance to win.  And if you do win and just happen to have THE WALL you should let me know.  I would totally love to show it off on the blog after you have received a boost of my collected swag for your collection.

ENJOY.

Seventeen-year-old Zayn has special powers she cannot control—powers that others fear and covet. Powers that cause the Templar Knights to burn Zayn’s mother at the stake for witchcraft. 

When a mysterious stranger tempts Zayn to become the first female member of the heretical Assassins, the chance to seek her revenge lures her in. She trains to harness her supernatural strength and agility, and then enters the King of Jerusalem's court in disguise with the assignment to assassinate Guy de Molay, her mother’s condemner. 

But once there, she discovers Earic Goodwin, the childhood friend who still holds her heart, among the knights—and his ocean-blue eyes don’t miss a thing. Will vengeance be worth the life of the one love she has left?
