Southern Belle Reads: Outer Banks Baker Mystery Series

Sunday night I finished the first book and started the second book in the Outer Banks Baker Mystery Series by Phoebe T. Eggli. These are not the best written books but they are just what I need right now. A nice easy read where not much thinking is required. I like a more complex book but right now I have so much going on it’s nice to have something less complex. There are three total in the series and they are such easy reads that as long as I find time to read I should be able to get the other two out within the next week/week in a half. And they are based in the Outer Banks so that in itself makes them a must read for me.

Southern Belle Reads: My Heart is Still in the Outer Banks

I finished the last book in the Dare Island Series over the weekend and my plan was to start The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe. And I did but I was not ready to leave the Outer Banks behind for the South Carolina Low country. So I started The Outer Banks Baker Mystery.

Southern Belle Reads: Dare Island Series

Well I am starting the last book in the Dare Island Series today. It is bittersweet, I like moving on to a new series but I will miss the characters from this series. That is the best part about series the characters start to feel like family/friends. The other down side about finishing this series is no more Outer Banks. I loved feeling like I was back in the Outer Banks while reading these. But I have tons of options at home on which direction to head next. I am not lacking on book choices that is for sure.

31 Day Blogging Challenge Day 12: If I Won The Lottery…

If I won the Lottery…

  1. I would pay off my car, but now I see that have Hybrid Rav4’s and I maybe interested in one of those
  2. I would payoff some bills
  3. I would purchase the Disney Vacation Club
  4. I would take a trip to the Outer Banks
  5. I would take a trip to New Orleans
  6. I would take a trip to Savannah
  7. We would have Princess Rooms at Disney in October when we go
  8. And all the girls would have Princess Makeovers and the boy would get a Pirate Makeover
Those are my first thoughts on what I would do if I won the lottery.  I’m sure I would come up with more things.
