Reading some of the Prime Series by Susan Sizemore

Been a little busy since Thanksgiving holiday has come and gone so haven't been writing. I have been reading though. I had bought a kindle kind of boxed set of Prime Books. They are written by Susan Sizemore and I have read a few of them before and really enjoyed that taste of naughty with vampires. I was a little concerned about this set since the graphic looks a little goofy, but really glad I got back into reading this author. I wasn't thrilled with each book in this set, but I still enjoyed it and plan on picking up more of her books via kindle. PRIMAL TIME: A New Collection of PRIME and VAMPIRE BOOK CLUB Stories (VAMPIRE PRIMES Series and VAMPIRE BOOK CLUB Series 14)

What I've just read.

I just got done reading part one of a series. It's about a girl named Lucy Hart. It's a paranormal romance book and I have to say it's nicely written, but very boring at first. I wanted more super hot guy flirting with the girl or something more romantic. It took a while to lead up to the good stuff and didn't take long for the first book to end. That or I just read it super fast which is always a possibility. I had gotten it for free from Kindle and didn't have to sign up for anything other than getting the Kindle Reading App on my computer. I would definitely recommend this book and there is a sequel. Hopefully a third is on the way soon since I'm hesitant at buying the second one and having to wait a while for the third. I tend to want books that have a lot already written so I can just binge read.

So if you want to look into this free book and see if it's to your liking then here is the link. BETTER OFF DEAD: A Lucy Hart, DEATHDEALER Novel

It has vampires, werewolves, zombies and witches so far. Who knows what else lurks in Lucy Hart's world, you'll have to read to find out.

I subscribed to Kindle Unlimited Free Trial

I finally broke down and picked up a free 30 day trial to Kindle Unlimited. Which means that if a Kindle Book is available for free with it I can just rent it for as long as I have the subscription. Unfortunately not all books are set up for it and that's ok because I found an author that I use to read and i'm ecstatic about it. She's a paranormal romance author so I'll be posting about her books next. I have read three books in her series and really found them enjoyable. I was financially strapped for a while and had to curb my book buying habit so lost my chance to pick up more paperbacks, but now I can read her series for free this month. Might even keep my subscription going since it's only 9.99$ a month after the free trial. Not to shabby.

Should you sign up for Kindle Unlimited? Well each person is different and I'd suggest looking into the books you enjoy and see if it's covered. It's free for a month then you can cancel before it ends if you weren't interested in keeping it. Pretty easy to just do it via your account. Sure beats having to call them up and try to cancel. Brings back the old AOL memories. I kept trying to cancel it and the guy on the phone wanted me to repeat a certain phrase before he'd cancel it. Never again have I touched AOL internet after that. Thankfully most companies have it set to online to save time and money from getting phone calls. Also amazon is a pretty awesome place and likes to make it easy on their customers (me and you!).

Hope you enjoyed that little tidbit about Kindle Unlimited. I'll post more updates later as I get through my monthly trial. EDIT: Apparently you can only check out 10 books at a time. Did not realize this, and really it's not that big of an issue, rent and send back what you are done reading and get more.

I almost feel bad.

Today I was grocery shopping with my dad since that's like our monthly ritual to have time together. So anyway I was in the cereal aisle waiting for these (insert expletive) people to move instead of just chit chatting with each other. I'm usually passive aggressive and won't open my mouth against people because really I wouldn't want someone being nasty to me. Well after the pile up on aisle 6 finally cleared up enough I finally was able to grab a little box of "Omg it's going straight to my thighs" cereal. Yes I'm lazy when it comes to breakfast if I even muster up enough energy to eat it. Ok long story short I looked at my prized box of cereal and noticed a free app with this purchase. A freaking app to play games from buying cereal? Back when I was a kid you got a toy inside your cereal after taking out the plastic bag, inspecting it from all sides and digging your probably unclean hands into the sugary mess that usually left you feeling a little sticky after. Well now they give away apps to kids on some cereals. I can kind of understand the whole not putting toys in cereal since in America we're not allowed to have kinder eggs because of a choking hazard (AKA people are sue happy and will gladly reap the rewards of a possible choking hazard). I'm all for kids safety, but we're kind of coddling them a little to much and not letting parents control what kids have. Ok ok I've ranted enough about that part. The part about feeling bad is below.

I almost feel bad about buying cereal that advertises an app for the Ipad. Yes I've gone to the dark side and use an Ipad for fun. I know I really love to read paperback books and as I've said before I use a kindle app. Then again I did say that I "almost" feel bad. *Evil Grin has been inserted* I do feel good about myself by keeping up to date about things and moving on into the technological world instead of going huh?

How do you feel about kids getting apps instead of toys or have we even forgot that there use to be toys inside the cereal boxes?

Crazy About Paranormal Romance

Well I am starting this blog to put out my thoughts on Paranormal books. I mostly like reading Paranormal Romance books and YA books about it. I started reading them when a little book store opened up near where I lived as a teen. They would have books that were just sent to them from major book stores as over stock or something. After school I would drive up there and find all I could buy and read. It was a sad day when they finally closed down and other book stores at the mall also went away. We've come to a point where brick and mortar book stores just can't keep up. Kids are mostly concerned with texting and playing on their ipads instead of reading a good book.

I got a little off track there, but sometimes I do when the mood strikes me. The mood to read strikes me almost on a daily basis. I keep lots of books in my room to choose from and unfortunately I've run out of reading material and getting tired of the same books over and over again. This has led me to reading books on a Kindle App which is free btw. I have been trying to avoid using that sort of technology to read since I love the feel of a book in my hand, but with prices on shipping being high and my lack of patience for books to arrive has kind of pushed me into it. Now I just buy a book and have it downloaded in seconds and bam I have something new to read. On that note I'll keep you updated on what I'm reading, have just read and plan on reading in the future.

So have fun and pick up a book or download one as it is done now. Enjoy it and pass on the love of reading to the next generation.
