: MY RAMBLINGS :

All the postings here reflect my opinion or ratings (books/movies) ... I ask everyone to watch a movie and make up your own mind - the same with a book ... don't just take my word for it!

I have been known to hate a movie and others love it - and vice versa ... that's what makes us all unique and wonderful - we all have our own opinion, likes and dislikes!

RATINGS :
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Excellent Read - do yourself a favor
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Good Read - you won't be disappointed
♥ ♥ ♥ = Not Bad Read - chill out and unwind
♥ ♥ = Okay Read - if you have nothing else
♥ = YAWN - don't bother :(

REVIEWS :
If you are an author or publisher ... I would love to review your book! I read all genres, and would review all books in a reasonable time frame. You can contact me at dennypsp@hotmail.com

postheadericon : Mid week Chatter :

I have been sadly neglecting things here ... so sorry.
I have so many book reviews I want to get up - along with some film reviews ... so I should be posting up a storm over the next couple of weeks.

And ... I collected a couple of boxes of books from a lady through Freecycle ... not alot in there that I wanted to read, but I did manage to score a few books - they aren't new, but still worth reading. Guess now it's my turn to put them back on Freecycle and see if anyone wants to take them from me.

My Tag forum has been going nuts the last couple of months, as well as stuff with real life ...birthdays etc. My hubby's 50th birthday party is this weekend ... so lots to get organized.

It's always exciting to hear that you have won a competition you entered on another person's blog ... but then very disappointing when you never receive the prize. I allowed a month (and yes, this lady lives in Australia) then contacted her ... she quickly got back to me to say that she would send it off, she'd forgotten about it.
Another month goes by and I contact her again - nothing. Give it another week, then message her letting her know that I am disappointed that I haven't received it and if I don't hear back from her, she won't hear from me again, and I'll just assume that I'm not getting the prize.

You guessed it - she never got back to me! I allow for real life stuff ... but she's around ... posting on her blog and facebook! Guess you're always going to come across it aren't you? Why even bother holding a contest, announcing a winner, and then not sending it off? All I can tell you is that I won't ever ever enter a contest on that ladies blog again! And no, I won't name her ... but hope that none of you end up in the same position as me.

So, with that said ... I'd appreciate an update from anyone receiving their prizes from me ... just so I know you got them and enjoy them.

I stood in front of my bookcase last week trying to work out what to read next ... you know what it's like - you pick up one book ... nah, put it back and pick up another ... nah ... and so it goes on. In the end I gave up and walked through the lounge room saying "I might as well read Twilight again" (youngest son rolls his eyes) ... so I did ... omg, I never get sick of reading it. And I know I said that I wouldn't do a review on it cos it's been done by so many people, but guess what? I LIED ... hehe ... yep ... I've read the book at least 14 times now and I owe it to myself to review it.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Hoping you all have the best of days ... and that you have an amazing book in your hands.
