So I found out that I have high cholesterol and my doctor says I do not need meds which is good. I do know that I can lower my cholesterol with changing the way I eat.
I'm going to buy the American Heart Association low fat low cholesterol cook book from Amazon on Friday. That is payday for me so I am getting it to help me eat better and inspire me for new ideas.
I do suggest if you are trying to eat healthy, make small changes in your routine. It's tough at first but it does get easier.
When I get the book, I will post about it and the recipes.

So yesterday I went shopping with my aunt and it was 63 degrees out but wish it was warmer to go to the beach. We went to the Mall of New Hampshire which I have not ben in in a long time.
We went to a lot of stores and one that I really loved was called Charming Charlie's and everything was color cordinated which I loved! I bought a dress with hat and earrings and would love more but I wanted to stay on my budget.
Went into old navy, Bath and body works and teavana. I love teavana and would love more scarlet jasmine tea but need to use up what I have.
I did well yesterday shopping and glad I went on a budget too other wise I would have spent more money.
Overall, it was a good day and I was tired when I got home.
Also got a new bracelet for my fitbit flex and it was cheaper from icing so I got one plus a new wallet.
So I need to do some stuff and will post more later.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I rented this movie. I had heard many reviews on it and that a lot of people loved the movie. I rented it first in case I didn't like it. I alos recomeend that people rent it if you have not seen it.
There wer funny parts and good parts in this movie but overll it lacked alot!!! I didn't like the actors who played Ana and Christian. They lacked a lot of chemistry when making this film and Iknow that they had to reshoot scenes.
I do like Kate and when she said "You have to admit he is ridiculousy hot", made me laugh and that was when she was looking at a picture of Grey to use for the school paper.
The drunk dialig at the bar was funny too which I can see happeneing since Gey can't get out of Anas head now.
The one thing tht destroys this movie is when Grey says "Laters Babyyy", it sounds so awful when he says it! There is no tone to, its a tone deaf voice saying it and it is just awful!!!!!
Taylor (the driver) I do like and he plays is part well.
When Ana starts messaging him from the cmputer he gets her, I like the pop ups that tell us what they are saying. This way people who have not read the book will know what they are saying.
Ana just signs a non disclosure agreement without reading it! Always read what you are going to sign!!!!!!
that just irks me to no end.
Also a list of foods in the D/S contract, tht does not sit well with me! Why would I eat from alist of foods that is given to me? I would eat heathy but I wouldn't give up fooddds that I like or any comfort foods. That just will not sit well with me ever. Unless a docotor tells me I need to cut back on something then I will eat what I want.
You are probably think that I just didn't like the whole thing but if you take out the sex part you could have a romance/comedy movie.
I have read all 3 books of this series and this is the worst adaptaion from book to big screen! They left out so much and it went to fast. They didn't butcher Harry Potter but wwwwith this film, 5 Shades of Grey was HORRIABLE!!!!!!!
I would only give it 1 star, this movie lacked in a lot areas and acting is one of them!
The actors were horriable, there was no chemistry between Ana and Christian, left out a lot, and the ending sucked and never happened in the book!!!!
ONE movie star on the cusp of greatness
ONE broken girl who touched him
TEN years to forget her
A MILLION stories in Hollywood
I am not hurt.
I don’t need a second chance with him, or a life I thought I had.
While he was out forgetting me to become a movie star, I was building a career out of nothing. A career as a paparazzi, but a career. For a foster kid who bounced around every home in Los Angeles, that wasn’t easy.
This camera is all I have.
He’s nothing to me. Every time I take his picture and sell it, I remind myself that I did it all without him or his approval, his cinnamon smell or his clear green eyes. He lights up the screen like a celestial body, but he’s nothing but a paycheck to me.
He can throw my camera off a balcony, and nothing has to change. We can stay king and queen of the same city, and different worlds.
Except this is Hollywood, and here, anything can happen.
Are you ready for a different kind of love story?
Meet Michael & Laine in this Hollywood themed second chance romance by CD Reiss!

I will post my review of 50 Shades of Grey later today.
I also have done 2 book reviews and will post those as well and have 3 more reviews to post since I am done with the books. I do like how you can post a review on Amazon and goodreads at the same time through the kindle phone app.
This way I don't have to write a review for 2 books, I can do one and it updates both sites. The only way I have write a review more than once is when I buy the book in paperback then I will have to write the review a few times.
Okay so I will post later today and will get my book reviews up today too. The book reviews will be in the same post and 50 Shades of Grey will have its own post.

So far interesting but it still is moving to fast.
If there wasn't as much sex in this movie, it would be a great comedy/romance movie because some of it is really funny!
I'm not sure how I feel about this movie. I will say I don't like the actors that portray Ana and Christian.
More later on this movie, going to finish it then give a full review.

I will post a pic of the book and a teaser a little later.
I finished Jezebel by K. Larsen and I give that book 10 stars!!!!! Most sites I put reviews on only let me do 5 stars but this book is worthy of 10 stars.
It starts out kinda slow but its the back story you are getting. It does pick up and I could not put the book down even though I had to for work and sleep.
A great love story with tragic happenings, betrayal and new love. There are many twists in this story and some I did not even see coming!!! I was like; Holy Fucking God!! Its that good of a book and I was speechless at the ending too.
I don't't want to give any spoilers in this post but you should read this book! It's so good and it has everything rolled into one! I find it rare you can find love,suspense,mystery,adventure and new love in a book.
K. Larsen did a fantastic job writing this book and I told her I loved it! It is worthy to read and as soon as it goes live on Amazon, I'm putting up my review on there too. I have a review on Goodreads already and my review page on facebook.
I have a few more reviews to do since I am done reading a couple of other books. Those will go up later today and I will do one tomorrow or do both tonight. Never know so I will be updating a lot.
More to come

This post is going to be different today. I have been reading and started t think about some stuff.
Am I the way I am because of my family and how I'm treated? Is it because I have done things in life where I made bad decisions? Maybe it's from not having my siblings around and have that bond with them that I am damaged.
I have wondered at times why no one wants me around, well a lot more then you think. Everyone says that they do want me around but they really don't. They like other people more and like hanging out with them so I'm left in the dust.
It sucks and I do think it plays a huge role in my moods even though I am used to it. I know people can't handle my strong independent personality and give it you straight attitude. I think they just ask me around on holidays to be nice.
I have learned to stop giving a shit and do what I think is right for me. I'm not the little innocent girl you once knew or the girl who is going to kiss ass on everyone and play nice, nope! I WILL not do that. I will tell you how it is and what I think.
Most times people don't want to be around because they want to "please everyone" which you shouldn't! Stop deluding yourself and grow some fucking BALLS!
It's sad when I see people pleasing others an being what they want that person to be. It's like they are a shell with nothing inside and like I said it's "kissing ass to other people"
I reflect a lot on my life and I don't regret my decisions, well maybe one but the rest definitely not. I'm glad I am following who I want to be and that I have tattoos! I'm proud of who I am even if I forget.
There are other things that bother me but maybe I should leave that for a rainy day, my friends don't care and they never will. This is one reason why I won't be doing a birthday/Christmas list this year. I want something but its sooooo taboo for them to get it! I don't see how it is but they will buy nose rings for someone?
anyways I think I have ranted on long enough. I'm reading a book and one character has made me think. Back to reading.

My computer sucks, maybe it's time for a new one.
So I put a post up on facebook asking if anyone knew a graphic designer that could make a logo for me. I think a friend of mine said she would but she takes forever and has a hard time concentrating on doing stuff so I just got someone else.
I looked at comments that were posted on my post and one was from a coworker that worked with me a long time ago. His wife does graphics so I contacted her and told her I had a blog and review page which is mostly about book reviews but I also promote authors.
So Emily and I talked and I honestly forgot I had asked her and yesterday she contact me. She had 3 designs that she made and I love them!!!
Here is her facebook page in case you want to have her design something for you and you can check it out.
I will post when I get home with what she did for me. I'm at the library and I am doing stuff online besides updating on here. I will be going home soon because I have an appointment later today.
So You should check out Emilys page on facebook and she is very great to work with. She lsitened to me and produce great results.

I started 2 new books this past week and I love both of them! I have so many to read after too so I need to do a lot of reading!
I started Killian by Elizabeth Kelly. I bought the book from her store( http://www.elizabethkellybooks.com ) She signed it for me too and it is a great book! I'm not halfway through but will be soon. The other book I started is called Pucked by Helena Hunting. It's on Amazon for $3.99 and is WORTH IT!
I want the paperback version too but for now I will stick with kindle. I have the app on my phone and I have a kindle at home too that I use.
So I have been reading and I love it plus it has been so hot out lately in New Hampshire that I finally had to stick a fan in my room. The old one broke so had another one and using it.
Good news though! I bought a VIP ticket to Wild and Windy in the City for May 9, 2016! I have 3 conventions in 3 months. I wanted to go on Booksplach 2016 but the company you have to go through has not called me back so I think I won't go since I have 3 conventions next year as of right now.
I have Anime Boston which is in March then in April I have a book convention in Georgia and in May I have Wild and Windy in the City. Yes I will be busy buy it's worth it. I never have stayed in Atlanta or been to Chicago so this will be fun and I can mark off where I have been on a map.
If you are wondering what Anime Boston is I will explain.
Before I started doing reviews and reading more, I got into Japanese Animated cartoons and I always go to Anime Boston. I have gone for 5 or 6 years now and its a mini vacation from home but I love going down and dressing up. Think Halloween for 3 days.
After awhile I did start reading more then started doing reviews and I have found my little niche. I do work a lot but I love reading and posting reviews. Some of my reviews have helped shoppers on Amazon and I love promoting indie authors too.
So I am a busy girl but I love updating and giving you reviews. My reviews are mostly books but every now and then I will post about other things, where I eat and where I travel to and how good the service is. I live in Keene, NH and most of my reviews will be around town but when I travel I will post what is around and what I do.
Okay I have now rambled on long enough and need to research one thing for my grampa then walk back home. Thanks for looking and follow my blog, see what I wrote about and experiance!

So I am not out of my rut completely but I am doing better which is very good. Going to do a detox starting tomorrow and maybe I will feel better.
I am reading and have read some short books and they are great reads! I have read the Lupo Legacy serie by Elizabeth Kelly and I loved them!!! Season 2 books will hopefully be out in November of this year. The first season of the series is available on Amazon.
I am reading a series by Wren Michaels called "The Snow Rose Series". So far there are 2 books and the first one is about Red Rose and the second book is about Snow White. This is a whole new take on Rose Red and Snow White but it's very good and I like different takes on fairy tales.
So I have been a reading machine and will continue to do so. I have many books on my kindle and kindle app so I need to read a lot more.
I do leave reviews for the authors on here, Amazon and Goodreads for them. I love to do reviews and I am happy to promote them and their work.
So I need to get back to work in the real world but I will be updating more since I am working 2 jobs now and I need to have money for the bills. I will update this weekend with cover reveals and books that are out. I sign up to do cover reveals and I have one this weekend.
also I will be updating my other blog which is a personal one. Its called "My Life's Writing". Don' remeber when Ilast posted in there.

Wow! Amazing! Couldn't put it down and didn't want to put down!!! Such a roller coaster ride of emotional highs and lows between Dawson and Chandler.
Their story is unique in many ways where one is finding herself and Dawson just finding the next town to stay in for a bit.
They start putts strangers but evolve into more. Chandlers fiancé try's to control and he is a BIG jerk! She realizes what she has become and decides to figure out what to do.
With a controlling fiancé and deciding what to do, Chandler embarks on a trip of a lifetime! With very little with her she drives until she figures out where to go and meets Dawson (hitchhiker) on the way.
Can their love last after only being intimate for a short time?
Get this book and read it, I wanted to cry, shake Dawson and hold Chandler when she had no one to turn too.
I loved this book, went on every emotional ride with Dawson and Chandler and wanted to cry with them!
I'm looking forward to more from Stacy Borel and I LOVED this book!! I would give this book 10 stars instead of 5 stars. Fantastic read, adventure, love, mystery and suspense with all the family drama involved.
