Second Chance Sunday – What happened here this week:


Second Chance Sunday – What caught my eye.  Why not go Sunday visiting?!

CeCe @ CeCe’s Steaming Mug of Books is discussing the strange use of the term A Woman’s Core

Stormy @ Book Blog Bake shares her thoughts on Spoilers (and why she doesn’t mind them)

Kelly @ Another Novel Read has misgivings about entering Strangers Giveaways

Books I have won:












Thanks to Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  for my copy of this.  It sounds repulsive so I’m intrigued!


Books I have received to review:

Counting to DPieces for You











I love that this YA book features dyslexia as I don’t think topics like this get covered often enough in YA books.   Thanks to Jessica @ MindBuck Media for my review copy.

Pieces for You is the second book in the For You series.  I loved Only For You when I read it, so I can’t wait to get stuck into this one too.  Thanks to Genna for my copy, I may have squeed!


Books I have bought

Not a Drop to Drink The TestingThe Opportunist


















Three great bargains!  Not a Drop to Drink was down to $1.99 and as I’m reading it for a book club read, I gleefully snapped it up.  And The Testing was FREE!  This has been on my radar for a while so that made my day when I saw it.

And once again, my friendly book pusher Chelsea @ Starbucks & Books Obsession has sold a book to me!  Check out her review for The Opportunist to see why.  Also currently only $0.99.


So that’s  my week wrapped up.  Happy Reading to all.

      I have super powers for tracking down kindle bargains! Thanks for shoutout for Not A Drop to Drink though, that was a great find.

  1. Michelle @ In Libris Veritas

    I grabbed Testing as well even though I’ve already read it. I can’t pass up a free book, lol. I’m reading Parasite right now and parts of are really weirding me out, but in a good way if that makes sense. I hope you enjoy your other reads and I look forward to your thoughts on Not a Drop to Drink.

      I couldn’t believe the kindle version of Not A Drop To Drink was only $1.99, the bargains I find there just amaze me! Persuasion is great, such an epic love story.

      I am loving The Opportunist, so far it’s not too crazy but I have a few theories going! Very, very readable writing style too which makes it a pleasure to whip through.
      I know, I love when CeCe does random posts, she is hilarious.

    • trish

      The Opportunist was full of crazy drama, evil characters and head-wrecking twists so I loved it! I’m excited about The Testing as well as I have wanted to read it with a while.

    • trish

      Sarar, I was so excited when I saw Not a Drop to Drink on sale and just snapped it up! I’m reading it for a book club so it was great timing for me too 🙂

    • trish

      That is EXACTLY what happened me on NG with The Testing! I was so disappointed so delighted to have a second chance now to read it 🙂 Have a look on amazon, maybe it’s still free for kindle?

      I love the idea of Counting to D too, hopefully it will handle Dyslexia in an empowering way. I feel from the description that it will so I’m really looking forward to it.

    • trish

      I’m really looking forward to my first Mira Grant book, I have wanted to read one for awhile. Perfect timing to win one!

    I felt very meh about The Testing, but it’s worth trying for free. I was happy about the great deal on our book club read! I had a hold at the library but I had no way of knowing when it would be avaliable, so I was happy to get it for cheap.

      I want to try The Testing and you can’t beat free! I am afraid that it sounds like a mixture of a few popular dystopia books though.
      And yay for getting Not a Drop to Drink at such a bargain price! I haven’t started yet but I plan on settling down some afternoon over Christmas with it.
