Restless Rancher by Jennifer Ryan (Review)

I finally finished Restless Rancher by Jennifer Ryan. First off, I would recommend reading Dirty Little Secret first. You can read this without reading the first book, but it will make a lot more sense if we you do so.

In this story we get to know Austin Hubbard, who is trying to pick up the pieces of his life after his father takes everything away from him. His best friend's girlfriend send her friend Sonya Tucker. They didn't have a great start, but it's partly his father's fault.

I liked this story, because Austin and Sonya has the same dreams. They both want a home and a family to call their own. Yet learn this as they remodel Austin's grandfather's home. However, there is more than desires to rebuild a new life. We find that we have a terrible father, and you don't realize how terrible he is until you draw closer to the end. Jennifer does a wonderful job in drawing you into the story. Yes, you have romance budding between Austin and Sonya, but you also he him rebuild himself.

Overall, a pretty good read, and I can't wait to see what is going to happen with the series. Especially with the little sample at the end of the story.

Getting Healthy: Week 1 Done Many More to Go

First week: Started out strong. I was making lunches for work, and made good choices. Then the weekend happen. Oh boy, I really need to focus there. I know I have a habit of eating when I'm not hungry. I tend to snack when I'm bored. I guess I should focus on that this week. So, for week 2 I'm going to work on avoiding being bored so I don't over snack.

Hopefully next week I will have a little more to say. Any-who; are you guys developing healthy habits? If so, what are they? Do you have tips on overcoming boredom to avoid snacking too much?

Weekly Recap Jan. 1-6

It's looking like I'm off to a good start with my goals. I have been doing all right with my healthy changes. I still fall a little short, but it's a work in progress. I should have a review posted sometime next week. Which means a I have been reading more. In the process of posting other stuff, but it hasn't come to fruition. Unless you count Getting Healthy post. I have finally learned how to use the banners I have purchased a few years back. Yay; it only took me about 2 years. I'm so excited about this. I also slightly modify my title; not by much. However, it kind fits in my new year.

How was your guys week? Yes, I know I haven't really counted the whole week, but this is a new thing for me. Like I said it goes with my new year. I'm currently finishing up Restless Rancher, and we will see what books I will read this week. I hope you all have a great week.

Getting Healthy: Time for Change

In yesterday's post I mentioned that I plan to take a healthier look on my life. Healthy living is not always easy to do, especially since I have been eating crappy for so long. I'm tired of being the way I am, so it's time for the change. You have to do the change when you are ready. If you aren't ready, you're not ready. Don't force yourself. You are welcome to come along with me on my journey or not.

The Beast of Beswick by Amalie Howard (Review)

I eventually finished The Beast of Beswick a while ago. It was a about the middle of December, but I just couldn't get myself to write the review for the book. Don't get me wrong it wasn't a bad story. I actually loved the first half the story. The banter between Thane and Astrid was good. They kept up with one another pretty well. However, as the story progress I was fell less enchanted with these two. It was a struggle for me stay engaged with the story. I would sit there try to force myself to finish the story. I know there were others who absolutely loved the story. The story had absolutely promise. We have a bluestocking heroine with beastly hero. I don't care that Thane wasn't the standard of handsome hero. I didn't really see these two draw closer together in the story, and by the time story ended they were madly in love. They magically came together, because he realize he wanted his wife.   I like Astrid, but there were times she drove me mad with her behavior with Thane. 

Overall, The Beast of Beswick was an all right read. Would it be something I picked up again, probably not. The writing isn't bad, but there was something I can't put my finger on. I did like Astrid and Thane individually, and I think they would work. However, I wasn't feeling this story. I guess you can say it was a beast to read. Hey it might work for you, and you can totally ignore my words.

For the past couple years I have kind of falling off with this blog (and it seems like I have continue the tradition), but this year I plan to recommit to my blog. I mean I totally didn't celebrate my 5 year mark a few years back, and I was okay with that. I mean I have been readjusting my life. Here is my new commitment to here.
