My newest “JOB”

8 Jun

I have not had the opportunity to blog about my newest job.  Well, maybe it is not a job, but I will call it one.  

Have you heard of the Simply blog?  Simply Stacie has over 8900 followers and reviews tons of different types of products.

I have been “hired” on as one of her book reviewers.  I call this my BIG GIRL job, because I am in total control of what I want to review.  I read the pitch and if it seem like something I like, I say I will review it and in turn someone sends me the book, I read it and give my honest opinion.

This has been so much fun, I have read so many great books in the past couple of weeks.  As my reviews go up on Simply Stacie, I will alert  you.

My first review is up today.  I have the copy I was given and I would love to pass it along to someone who reads my review and thinks it sounds like a book they’d like to read.

I will choose a winner on  7/15/2011.


All you have to do is go to the link for my review, read the review and leave a comment on my blog and Simply Stacie’s blog to be eligible for the random drawing for the book.

Today’s review is for a book called LAGAN LOVE.  I can’t publish the whole review here, since it is a blogging guffaw, but I can tell you a bit about the book.  

It is set in Ireland and focuses heavy on folklore and personal relationships and how the folklore affects the relationships of the characters.

Head on over to Simply Stacie to read the full review here:
