So yes, I did finish reading the third Prophecy of the Sisters book, the Circle of Fire.  And it was a great ending to the trilogy.  Lia has to find the 4th key, the stone, and convince her sister, Alice, to join her cause and stop Samuel and the souls from crossing over into their world.  I'm not going to ruin the ending or the book for you.  I think you should definately start at book 1 and read all the way through to book 3.  Such a great story!

I have been a reading fool this week.  I have finished 3 books.  Well one was more like a short story, and it was pretty funny.

Let's start off with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After





It follows Elizabeth Darcy and Fitzwilliam after their marriage.  There are still Zombies.  There are still ninjas.  And worse yet, Mr. Darcy has been bitten.  Elizabeth travels to London to find a cure... if it really does exist.

I loved it.  I loved all the fighting and zombie mayhem.  It's a great follow up to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Next we have the short story, The Princess and the Penis.

This is nothing more than a hilarious little fairytale about a princess who finds a Penis in her bed, and he turns out to be her true love.  If you want to have a little giggle, go ahead and read this one. 

Lastly is Guardian of the Gate (Prophecy of the Sisters, Book 2).  You may remember that back on September 9th, 2009, I posted a blog about the first book.  Well I have finally gotten around to the second one and it was a great book.  You follow Lia on her quest to find the keys and the pages that will help her stop her sister for good.  There is some unexpected romance and some seriously fun adventure.  I have also downloaded Book 3 to my kindle and will let you know when I finish it.

So I decided to do a little review of a website I recently tried to order from. It is called shearsforhair.com, and I'm not happy with their poor customer service.

Two weeks ago I placed a small order. I'm always looking for new places to shop for grooming supplies and stuff for my scissors, and I thought I would give them a try. Two weeks after placing my order, I heard nothing of this order. No update what so ever. I sent an email, no response. I called and left a message, no response. Finally I contacted google checkout to see if they could get through about my order. They did.

The seller's response is that they tried to contact me to tell me the items were out of stock numerous times, and have cancelled my order. They flat out lied. No one ever contacted me, and if I could leave a review about them on google checkout I would. It would state the same thing as here on my blog. Also if the items I ordered were out of stock, why were they still offering them on their website?

So with that being said, I do not recommend the website shearsforhair.com. They have poor customer service and don't deserve your business.

My mom has these flowers that light up at night. They are right by the back porch door so that when I let Peanut out at night, all I can see are these flowers. They are cool, but they are also blinding. Ha ha.

Last week on Tuesday, Mark and I took a little day trip. We went to NYC and had a pretty good time. We saw the Statue of Liberty, had a nice meal at Eataly, and then when home. We were going to see a play, but all the ones we wanted to see were sold out.

I finished reading two books recently.  Both were excellent.

One book was called Marysvale and it was about a young man who really had a special gift and that he was having a few issues because of it.  In the process of finding someplace new to live, he learns things about himself he has long forgotten.

The other book was called House of Dark Shadows.  This family moves into a house and they start experiencing strange things. Next thing they know, they are traveling through doors into other lands in search of someone very important.

Last but not least, I leave you with a picture I took the other day while I was walking out of work to my car.

I made a really great sandwich today.  It was scrambled egg, feta cheese, basil, and tomato on wheat bread.  AMAZING!  So simple to make, and so tasty too.
