SuperPoints Update

Today alone I earned 208 points from SuperPoints. For every 500 points you earn on SuperPoints you can cash out for FREE gift cards to various places. I typical get Amazon but they have hundreds to choose from, all free. I joined the end of July since then I bought a kindle using my points and I earned $60 free in December, $45 free in January and $60 free in February (so far!). 

Superpoints offers a Super Lucky Button which you get about 30 spins a day as a basic member, 50 spins a day if your a gold member (2 friends join), and 100 spins a day when you are platinum member (if 5 friends join). Using this button along with the other methods such as taking surveys, watching videos and more you earn points. You even get Super Lucky Emails containing anywhere from 1 point to 100 points. Join, and validate your profile (via email as well as directly on the site) to use the Super Lucky Button. The points get cashed out for items such as electronics, gift cards and more. The spins take between 5 and 10 minutes a day. I typically can earn a $5 gift card every 2-3 days.

Blood Orchids by Toby Neal

I recently read Blood Orchids by Toby Neal. This is my first book to review as a BookSparks Groupie. This is a very interesting book. It is a crime novel, which is not something I typically read. What makes this book interesting is it mostly focuses on Lei, a police officer, however it does give us glances into the murders head.

Lei and her partner Pono discover two dead young adults. While investigating their murder Lei discovers she has a stalker. 

Parts of the book are written in pidgin, make it extremely hard to follow. As a stickler for somewhat proper English, the pidgin made it extremely difficult to focus on the story. It took me 3 days to read the first one hundred pages because I had such a hard time focusing. Despite my rocky beginning with this book I truly enjoyed it. I read the remainder of the book in one night. I found the whole murder mystery, stalking situation incredibily captivating!

I am honestly surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. From the title and the summary of the book I did not think I would because it is very unlike the books I usually read. This just shows never to judge a book by its "cover."

Guy Not Taken By Jennifer Weiner

Guy Not Taken by Jennifer Weiner has been on my to be read pile for a very long time. I must say how sorry I am that it sat there for so long! Unlike Ms. Weiner's other books this one is a series of short stories. The stories show the many sides and strengths of women. She even references her character's from Good In Bed. 

If you have not read this one yet I highly recommend you do.

I finished Sizzling Sixteen the day before Smokin Seventeen was published. Talk about timing! Seventeen begins with the discovery of a dead body on the ground's of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. The love triangle between Stephanie, Morrelli and Ranger intensifies during a misunderstanding.
