American Idol

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Now that Anoop is gone I don't know who to root for on American Idol!!! It is hard to pick but I think I'm leaning towards Danny Gokey. I have to say that I wouldn't be sad to see Adam go...sorry but I just think he's too over the top!!! Matt is pretty good (he looks like Justin), Kris is cute, and Allison has some wild pink hair to go with her "rocker chick" voice but overall I think Danny is the man this year! Oh well we'll see how it goes, I'm usually totally wrong when it comes to "Idol" though LOL!!!! Only a few more weeks left to see if I finally get it right :-)

NFL draft

Saturday, April 25, 2009

It's NFL Draft Day!!!!!Yay!!!!! Football season is almost upon us! So my team, the Pittsburgh Steelers (6 time SuperBowl Champs :-D) picked Ziggy Hood in the first round! I can't wait to see what this guy does in training camp, preseason, and of course in regular season play! Now I wonder what position they will fill with the second pick in the draft? We'll see! Can't wait 'til football season!

Check out this article about Ziggy!

Finding the Time to Read

Thursday, April 16, 2009

Okay so here it is, if you read my previous post you know I have TONS of books to read...well I just don't have the time!!! So as soon as I finish a book I'll let you know what I think about it! I'm really looking forward to this week and the warm weather ahead! Spring has sprung :-)

Too Many Books :-D

Sunday, April 5, 2009

Hahaha is there ever such a thing as too many books? Nah... :-D

Well I am a true bookworm, I read about a book a day so it's pretty bad when books start stacking up under my bed, on my bookcase, and in my dining room!!!! Here's the books that are "piling" up!!!!

Right now I have 3 Love Inspired contemporary romances I'm reading
1. Bluegrass Hero by Allie Pleiter
2. More Than a Cowboy by Susan Hornick
3. The Cowboy Next Door by Brenda Minton (my cousin let me borrow this so I'll have to finish this first so she won't kill me)!!!

I'm also reading some Chick Lit too (my fave newly discovered fiction genre):
4. Everything's Coming Up Josey by Susan May Warren
5. Shopaholic and Sister by Sophie Kinsella

I'm also into the YA Vampire/SciFi-ish stuff like Stephenie Meyer (thanks Rachel for getting me hooked!!) so I'm reading a few new authors in the genre:

6. Frostbite: A Vampire Academy Novel, Book #2 by Richelle Mead (yeah I know I'm never lucky enough to find book #1 in the series first so... I gotta read book #2 first in this series AND the Shopaholic series!!!!)
7. Warrior Princess by Frewin Jones

These books are supposed to be coming in the mail for me from various book swap sites (I'm too poor to support my habit by shopping retail for more than a few books at a time and as you can tell a FEW books won't do for me :-P)
8. Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Kinsella
9. And Baby Makes Five by Gail Gaymer Martin
10. The Manning Brides by Debbie Macomber
11. Million Dollar Dilemma by Judy Baer
12. Snow Angel by Jamie Carie
13. Her Captain's Heart by Lyn Cote
14. The Red Siren by M.L. Tyndall
15. Hannah Grace by Sharlene MacLaren

I just finished reading:
16. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
17. Shopaholic Ties the Knot by Sophie Kinsella
18. Stealing Home by Allison Pittman
19. The Broken Path by Cami Checketts
20. Envy: A Luxe Novel by Anna Godbersen (a new fave author/series of mine)...WHHEEEWWWW!!!!!

I think I am going to start doing something productive after I finish my books! I think I'm going to review them on this blog!! I'm not sure if anybody even looks at my blog but whatever, it'll make me feel like I did something useful :-) If you have any recommendations for some good reads feel free to let me know!! Have a great day!

P.S. Oh yeah I forgot...I just won a copy of Ruby's Slippers by Leanna Ellis...sooooo I'll be reading that soon as I said, think I read much?????
