The To Be Read Tag

The To Be Read Tag

I thought it would be fun to do this tag I found at www.lite-rate-ture.com. I don't have a TBR shelf as big as other bloggers but it's still out of control!!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I kind of keep track on Goodreads. And I also pile all the tbr books at one bookshelf.

Is your TBR mostly print or e-books?

Mostly ebooks because it's easier to forget them.

How do you determine which book to read next?

My mood :P

A book that has been on your TBR list the longest?

Book Review: Risking it all for Love by Kimberley Montpetit

Risking it all for Love by Kimberley Montpetit
Published October 15th 2014 by Spellbound Books
Ever since her high school boyfriend's death from a car accident three years earlier, Jessica Mason and her hometown of Snow Valley, Montana with all its awful memories have NOT been compatible. Running away to New Orleans on a ballet scholarship, Jessica cringes when she thinks about confronting Pastor John and the community church--she doesn't want to talk about God, not after He took Michael, the boy she was going to marry ever since third grade.

In the local scene of funky New Orleans, Jessica seeks out Madame LaBlanc, hoping Michael will absolve her of her guilt the night of the car accident in a seance, but the spirit world is silent and she fears the grief will drown her.

Finally succumbing to family pressure, Jessica reluctantly returns for Christmas - and the little town of Snow Valley does Christmas BIG. When she visits Michael’s grave in the church yard, Jessica is shocked to meet handsome James Douglas, Pastor John’s nephew, who’s studying for the ministry. No, she is NOT going to be attracted to someone who wants to be a preacher! Definitely not compatible! But James Douglas is unlike any minister-in-training she's ever met. James can not only dish back Jessica’s finely-tuned sarcasm but understands grief all too well, turning Jessica’s world upside down.

Can Jessica forgive herself for that terrible, fateful night? Can she take another risk on love?
I read Risking it all for Love as a part of 'A Christmas in Snow Valley' anthology and honestly thought it wasn't going to be for me. I usually like more the 'bad' boys, but I can say James, being a Pastor and all, was a great character. I wasn't expecting to like him so much! He was fun and patient and what Jessica needed to love again. Also Jessica was a very strong characters, her feeling were so rough and real! She's grieving and feels responsible for the car accident that killed her boyfriend, so it's not easy to write so well about this.

Risking it all for Love ended being one of my favorites holiday romances, it's a clean romance, but not the usual 'too sweet' or unrealistic, It was very emotional, I even shed a tear or two, but really enjoyed it!

Book Review: Ellie + Ace: The Case of the Bedtime Bandit by Tangerine Toodles and Wednesday Whistlehoot

Ellie + Ace: The Case of the Bedtime Bandit by Tangerine Toodles and Wednesday Whistlehoot
Ellie + Ace: The Case of the Bedtime Bandit
Authors: Tangerine Toodles and Wednesday Whistlehoot
Girl detective Ellie and her dog pal Ace will captivate and delight you with their adventures. These hilarious mysteries hook readers from the very first page. Short chapters, engaging characters, fast-paced action, and silly situations make the Ellie and Ace books a perfect fit for readers of the Heidi Heckelbeck, Junie B. Jones, Nate the Great, and Ivy and Bean books.
Ellie is a young girl who wants to be just like her father, a detective. She and her dog Ace enjoy solving mysteries and someday soon they will be famous detectives.

But first, they need to solve the mystery of who is stealing food and toys, and even a stinky shoe!

It was so easy to read about Ellie and Ace. It's a story for only a couple of minutes, with four chapters and some illustrations. At the start of the book there is a introduction for everyone who haven't read the other books, I think this was a great idea because you get the feeling you know the characters. I loved Ellie and Ace interactions, I love dogs and I think their friendship was well written.

Overall, I definitely recommend Ellie + Ace: The Case of the Bedtime Bandit for the young readers. It's the perfect length, simple to read and it won't bore you. It's a children book but it caught me from the beginning and I wouldn't mind reading more about this girl and her dog adventures.
