My Book Haul 4/16/16

My Book Haul 4/16/16 | Alexia's Books and Such
In need of a new way to showcase titles, I decided that My Book Haul seems like a good fit. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information.

For Review:

This was an email offer that sounded intriguing, but I was surprised to receive the first book in the series as well as the one requested for review! I can't believe I haven't read Caitlin Kittredge before!

Black Dog by Caitlin Kittredge
Black Dog by Caitlin Kittredge

The first installment in a fabulous dark urban fantasy series - think Kill Bill with demons and gangsters instead of martial arts - from the award-winning author of the Iron Codex trilogy and Vertigo comic Coffin Hill...(Goodreads)

Blog Tour: The Well Path by Jamé Heskett

 photo Well Path.jpg Title:  The Well Path: Lose 20 Pounds, Reverse the Aging Process, Change Your Life
Author:  Jame Heskett
Release Date:  March 8, 2016
Publisher:  Harper Wave
Source:  Review copy provided by TLC Book Tours

Lose twenty pounds and reverse the aging process in just sixty days with this clinically proven, holistic lifestyle plan from an anti-aging expert whose clients include some of New York City’s most successful women.

Most diets don’t work because they restrict food intake and put inconsistent physical stress on the body, starving cells, throwing hormones out of whack, and slowing down metabolism. In The Well Path, Dr. Jamé Heskett offers us a radical new approach: In order to lose weight, we first have to heal the damage we’ve done to our bodies from years of dieting. Before we can lose weight for good, we need to achieve homeostasis - total balance in the body, with all its systems working in concert. When you're there, you’re full of energy, look and feel younger, and lose weight effortlessly. (Goodreads)


My Review:

What if you were invited to a party, but once you arrived you found out you couldn't have any cake until you had eaten a bowl of Brussels sprouts? You'd be pretty disappointed, right?

That's how I felt when starting The Well Path. I wanted the "cake" of how to reverse the aging process, but had to eat the "Brussels sprouts" of reading about the science first.

Bookmark Monday: The Post Office Ate My Bookmarks!


Bookmark Monday
Since I collect bookmarks, thought it would be fun to join the Guiltless Reader for her Bookmark Monday posts!

It's no secret that Jennifer Estep is one of my favorite authors, so whenever she offers new bookmarks to her fans, I'm there! All she asks is for you to send one SASE and she will generously send new bookmarks. I've gotten them before and love them, so was anxiously awaiting the newest set! Unfortunately, the Post Office had other plans.

Is that label supposed to be ironic? We Care? Really???
