Hi everyone!! :)
It's not everyday that I talk about books on my bloggy (well... ok I never do!!) -- you all know primarily my passion on my blog is my scrapbooking -- but what you may NOT know about me is I am an AVID READER! :) I love to read :)
I have a ton of genres I like to read. Romance, Mystery, etc. I am a huge Patricia Cornwell fan (even got to meet her at a book signing once ... dream come true!!), and thanks to bloggy friends Sheree and Staci -- I have also gotten hooked on Kristan Higgins and Jill Shalvis -- and thanks to my Mom I am now hooked on Nicholas Sparks (if he would ONLY make me stop bawling in EVERY book of his I read -- just saying! lol! -- but I have to admit, and don't hate on me Nicholas Sparks fans, I did NOT like "The Notebook" -- that is all, end of discussion on that one! ha!)
Anyhoo, so I am an avid reader :)
So I was walking though Barnes and Noble a couple of months ago, I come across a book with the title of "Scrapbook of Secrets" - WHOA!!! A book about scrappers?!!?? And not just a designing type book that I have seen in the past???
So I read the synopsis -- not only is the book about scrapbookers, it's a MYSTERY too!!! Score!!! :)
I saw that this was book 2 of a series, but I couldn't find the first one at B&N, so I just bought it, because how could I pass it up?? :)
As you can see by the cover, the author of these books is Mollie Cox Bryan -- and as soon as I got home I dove into "Scrapbook of Secrets" -- and I have to say, I LOVED IT!! :)
It was really fun, great flow to the whole book, and I loved that scrapbooking was involved through the entire book!! :)
And as soon as I finished it, I went onto my Kindle and bought "Scrapped" - and I LOVED that one too!
These books were great! I just loved the characters, the story lines, the scrapping in it! :) One thing that I really loved about Mollie's books was at the end of the book she includes a glossary of scrapbook terms for those that might read these books and aren't scrappers, they will have all the 'scrappy' terms in the back :)
So if any of my friends out there are scrappers and readers too -- I truly recommend both of these books! :)
The opinions on these books are my own, I wasn't asked to write them, nor was I compensated for writing them, I just am sharing another side to myself with my bloggy friends! :)
Make sure to check out Mollie's site :)
And before I head out -- I want to share a couple of cards that I have made for some co-workers :)
