Stacking the Shelves

I love Tynga's Reviews Stacking the Shelves  so I borrowed it for my blog.  I hit up my favorite used bookstores recently and hit the jackpot.  I was able to get four books from my wishlist.  First I picked up Chocolate-Covered-Murder by Leslie Meier.  I love this mystery series and have been reading it for awhile.  I really need to catch up.  I also was able to get Fallen-Masters by John Edward.  Yes that John Edward the TV psychic.  I usually don't read much science fiction but this intrigued me.  Next I picked up Waltz-Time by Eugenia Riley and If-Only-Dreams by Wendy Markham aka Wendy Corsi Staub.  These two are both time travel romances which are a favorite genre of mine.  I'll let you know how they are.  

Product Spotlight: Beyonce Heat Perfume

I bought Beyonce Heat Perfume for 50% off the day after Christmas.  I hadn't smelled it before I bought it but for $2,50 I could take a chance on it.  I loved it.  It is not too strong and the vanilla really comes through.  It is a really good choice to wear to work since it is not too overpowering.  This is a small bottle but even the bigger bottles are really affordable.  Let me know what you think of this scent and any others you love.  I provided the link to purchase above and again below.

Book Survey

Do you remember how you developed a love for reading? 
Both of my parents are huge readers so I am sure it came from them.  My earliest memories are of reading the Little house series and falling in love with them.  I also really loved the Trixie Belden mysteries. 

Where do you usually read? 
I love to read in the bath or cuddled up in my bed. 

Do you prefer to read one book at a time or several at once? 
Lately it seems I have a few books going at once since I read some for school and some for pleasure. 

What is your favorite genre? 
I don’t know if I have a favorite. I love thrillers like John Grisham and cozy mysteries such as Leslie Meier.  In the last few years I have found a love for YA, especially dystopian themed books.  I also love biographies and chick lit.

Is there a genre you will not read? 
I am a big chicken so I probably won’t read anything in the horror genre.

Do you have a favorite book? 
Picking one would be hard but I really love A Time to Kill by John Grisham. 

What is your least favorite book?

Recently I tried to read the book thief and just couldn’t finish it.

What is the longest book you have ever read? 
Maybe a biography on Tsar Nicholas II

What was the last book you bought?
A time travel romance, a guilty pleasure genre of mine.

Do you prefer library books or buying books? 
I prefer buying books. I am always afraid that I’ll borrow a book, love it, and want to keep it. 

What are you currently reading?
The Killer Angels by Shaara for school and the Lost Symbol by Dan Brown.  I am also reading Demi Lovato’s new book.
