April 25th, Blue Monday and What R U Reading?
Sharing some blue umbrella's and decorative parasols that I found on the web
for Smiling Sallys meme, "Blue Monday". I live in Missouri and all we have been having are storms and rain. Also some horrible tornadoes touched down not to far
from our home. My nephews house was hit but luckily they were at the mall at the time. They suffered some major roof and house damage but they are all o.k. which is
a real blessing. Please keep their other neighbors in your prayers though as they
were not as fortunate. They even had to close Lambert Field Airport because of
the damage done there. The picture posted below I thought was very pretty...love
all the different soft colors the artist chose.
This meme "It's Monday what are you reading?" at Sheila's Book Journey is always fun because you get to read alot of good reviews and see what other bloggers are picking out to read. You always
get a ton of good books to add to your "to be read list".
Right now I am listening to Blue Moon (The Immortals #2 )by Alyson Noel and
reading on my Nook, Robyn Carr's ~ Promise Canyon(Virgin River Series).
Alyson’s Noël’s bestselling Immortals series has been hailed as “addictive” “beautiful” “haunting” and “mesmerizing.” In the second installment, Ever can bring her family back from the dead—but only if she’s willing to sacrifice the guy she loves more than life itself.
Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever’s powers are increasing, Damen’s are fading—stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.
Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, uncovering not only the secrets of Damen’s past—the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden—but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day...
After years spent on ranches around Los Angeles, Clay Tahoma is delighted to be Virgin River's new veterinary assistant. The secluded community's wild beauty tugs at his Navajo roots, and he's been welcomed with open arms by everyone in town—everyone except Lilly Yazhi.
Lilly has encountered her share of strong, silent, traditional men within her own aboriginal community, and she's not interested in coming back for more. In her eyes, Clay's earthy, sexy appeal is just an act used to charm wealthy women like his ex-wife. She can't deny his gift for gentling horses, but she's not about to let him control her. There's just one small problem—she can't control her attraction to Clay.
But in Virgin River, faith in new beginnings and the power of love has doors opening everywhere.…
