Good Friday Books

Today is Good Friday!
What is Good Friday? Well, according to Wikipedia the source of all knowledge...Good Friday is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday, or Easter Friday, though the latter properly refers to the Friday in Easter week.
Based on the details of the Canonical gospels, the Crucifixion of Jesus was most likely to have been on a Friday (John 19:42).  The estimated year of the Crucifixion is AD 33, by two different groups, and originally as AD 34 by Isaac Newton via the differences between the Biblical and Julian calendars and the crescent of the moon.  A third method, using a completely different astronomical approach based on a lunar Crucifixion darkness and eclipse model (consistent with Apostle Peter's reference to a "moon of blood" in Acts 2:20), points to Friday, 3 April AD 33.

Casting Couch #3

As a part of my new blog resolutions, I decided to add a new monthly post called "The Casting Couch".  The Casting Couch is my monthly post were I will be "fun" casting a few of the books I have reviewed this month.  This is only my dream cast and or possible cast and has nothing to do with the actual actors that were cast in the movie versions.  I just wanted to let you know who I was seeing in my head as I was reading a few of these books. Click on the actors name to read their resumes. 

So have a seat on the couch and let the actors show you their stuff...

Bloggiesta 2013!

First I have to say that I realized I wrote down the wrong date for Bloggiesta on my blog calendar.  Of course it makes sense now that Bloggiesta would not be on the same day as Easter.  LOL!  Oops!
Anywhooo!
Bloggiesta is Here!  And I am sooooo happy!  This is one event that I plan for every single year.  I love spending time getting blog stuff done. At the end of the event I can see the progress right here. 
Oh!  Wait!  Do you even know about Bloggiesta?
Well.. read this from the BloggiestaWebsite.

Spring Fling Is Here!

Kate Spade Wild Flower Tote
 Guess what today is?  The first day of Spring!! 
You know what that means.  No more cold!  Yeah!  I love summer and we are just one season away from crazy hot weather.  YEAH!  
I don't consider myself a fashionista at all!  But one thing I do love about spring are the new spring fashions and colors.  After winters dark colors and heavy fabrics, Spring comes along with all this color and FLOWERS.
What girl doesn't like flowers?  Spring, flowers, and purses.  Right!
Several designer handbag companies are in the same mindset this Spring.  Here are a few (crazy expensive) purses from some top name designers.
Introducing Spring 2013...
