This is to all of my dear friends that stand by me and lift me up when I need it. I apologize for the length between posts. It's been so hard for me these past few weeks and I feel like crying all the time.
I do have SO many authors to thank for making sure I have books to review and to have what I call *Comfort Reading*. This is the reason I review. I do it to pay back all the authors over the years that have taken me away from my horrible illness and bring to a place that made my day and night.
There are TOO many for me to list right now, but there were at least 4 authors (I think I maybe forgetting someone and that makes me nervous) OK...these four (I think it's actually five) sent me boxes of books. Their amazing generosity and caring sent me into teary fits and butterflies (those school girl ones) You ladies know what I mean. I will leave a list and I find it so hard to send them back "REAL SNAIL MAIL" thank yous and not just emails. Does anyone else have this problem? The person that sent me the most beautiul package, I don't have his address. I'd love to send him a very special thank you and SOME OF YOU as well.
J.Kaye, Trish, Nymeth, Wendy, Sandra, Breeni , Cheryl, and my friend Tracey...you are like a close knit on line family to me. Everytime I turn around, there is something sweet in my box or you leave me a comment. I LOVE COMMENTS and fresh faces. I know there are SO SO many of you I forgot above...like Sandy Ellen Patsy, WindyCity, Care, Bunny...Please know that if I didn't acknowledge you above means I love you less or don't think of you all praying for me every day. Believe me .... you'll be in many more to come! AND PLEASE don't be afraid to say hello, I LOVE to make new friends. Look at all the blogs on my side bar that I Lurk...
I don't know what's going on with my Library Thing. I'm in the early reviewers program .... I just got in my August book, but my July, June and May books have not shown up. I'm not even kidding. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it just me? I thought I typed in my wrong address, but I got this months book. So that isn't it.
I'm still a little depressed and weak, but I'm fighting and trying. I love you all for being loyal to my blog. If you need to reach me privately, my address is IAmHiMaintenance@aol.com.
Also I got in a new book from a brand new author, it's his first book and it's amazing! I haven't finished it yet, but let me tell you what it says about the book on the back.
It's called PIT-STOP by BEN LARKEN and it's his debut novel.
Welcome to the Pit-Stop Grill, a roadside attraction along Arizona’s Route 66 where travellers kick up their feet while sipping a nice cup of joe. It’s a cool oasis in an unforgiving desert landscape. It’s also the last stop on the road to Hell.
When ten people find themselves inside the eerie diner, unable to get out or remember how they arrived, all they know is what their waitress, Holly, tells them: a bus is coming. It will take them the rest of the way to a destination of unspeakable horrors.
Led by highway patrolman, Officer Scott Alders, the group of strangers unite with a common goal—-escape. Each of them holds dark secrets, but personal demons are no match for the wraithlike bus driver who arrives bearing the nametag RAMSEY.
Driving an oily black bus with ghostly headlights and exhaust that smells of brimstone, Ramsey wastes no time picking them off one by one. As their number dwindles and the terror mounts, Scott Alders realizes it will take more than a police-issued sidearm to stop the evil that tracks them. But is there enough power in their battered spirits to combat a crimson-eyed driver with a schedule to keep?
One thing is clear: you’ll think twice before you make your next Pit-Stop..
So far, I'm loving it and you'll have my thoughts and how many TIARAS it's getting soon.
There are a few more I'm reading, but I will fill you in on those, hopefully tomorrow.

I LOVE YOU ALL - THE PRINCESS
Happy Reading Everyone!
