College students

College students if your classes require many books like mine did the cost adds up very quickly! Try saving some money by renting your books. www.CampusBookRentals.com not only provides a fast, easy way to rent your books they also allow you to rent books you own to other people. They also donate money to Operation Smile.

Some of their services include:

-saving 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods

Here is a video about their new RentBack program. RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students. You can make 2-4x more money compared to buyback options!

Not only do you benefit by using this amazing site, but they also donate a portion of what you spend to Operation Smile! Operation smile is international children's medical charity. They fix children's cleft lip and palates, allowing them to eat, breath and smile properly for FREE! This is an excellent organization. I am proud to say that one of the doctors I work with has performed numerous surgeries for them! Please visit

Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich

I recently read Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich. Like the previous 19 books, this story follows Stephanie Plum, Joe Morelli, Lula and Ranger. Stephanie searches for a mob boss who has been arrested for murder. This mob boss is not your typical mob boss, he is also Morelli's godfather.

Like the previous stories before it there is a murder, Stephanie has car issues, Lula over eats, there is the Morelli, Ranger, Stephanie love triangle and to top the craziness off there is a giraffe named Kevin that only Stephanie and Lula seem to see. This story lacked on the Morelli, Ranger story line. I would have liked to see more about them. I feel like this story was rushed. It lacked some of the enthusiasm that the previous stories have. I hope that the next one is a little more appealing.

Twisted Vine by Toby Neal

I would like to start with an apology to Ms. Neal. I wrote the review below months ago, but I accidentally clicked the wrong thing and it never posted. Due to various things in my life I have been neglecting my blog and did not realize until today that it never posted. 

I recently read Twisted Vine by Toby Neal. It is the 5th book in the Lei Crime Series. The story follows Lei Texeria as an FBI agent as she tries to uncover a link between a significant number of suicides and the internet. 

I have truly loved this book series. Every story takes place in Hawaii. They keep you captivated. The imagery is amazing. Ms. Neals characters are very well developed. This story was no different. The drama  between the personal life of Agent Texeria and the mystery keeps you on your toes each and every time. 

I highly suggest that you read all of Ms. Neal's books. I look forward to reading all of her future works.
