Sleigh Ride Tour 2012 and BOGO!!

Today is my turn on the Buzz Books USA Sleigh Ride Tour, so bundle up in your blankie and grab your hot chocolate, because I have not one... not two... but three book reviews for you from Buzz Books USA.

And I'm not the only one in a generous mood, Buzz Books USA is currently having a BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE!! Here's how it works:

1. Buy a book on the poster below from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

2. Send Buzz Books USA a copy or picture of your receipt to buzzbooksusa (at) me (dot) com.

3. In the email let them know WHICH TITLE you’d like for FREE, the email address where they should send it (to you or a friend), and if it’s for KINDLE or NOOK.

They are gifting them from the actual stores and will come with a holiday greeting. Your email and those they send books to is safe and will not be stored or shared after the book is sent.

Of course, you need to know what to buy right? Here are my suggestions.

I'm not going to lie, my favorite has to go to a hilarious blogger I introduced a lot of you to, Heather Davis aka Minivan Mom aka TMI Mom aka my friend. Am I a bit bias? Of course, but honestly when it comes to her writing I don't have to be. She leaves me snort laughing with everything of hers I read and TMI Mom Bites the Big Apple: Oversharing inNYC is no exception.

When a tired, small-town mom from the Midwest is offered the chance to fly away to The Big Apple for just 24 hours - if only for a chance to sleep without being touched, breathed on or poked by her husband or her children - she dashes away and lets the city enter her soul. Spending a night in Times Square prior to her nationally televised talk show debut, Heather Davis takes her readers along with her as she experiences New York City for the first time. Hilarity will ensue. Oh, will it ensue.

I started reading this book while standing in line at the post office, it wasn't long before she had me snort laughing and the other people in line looking at me as if I'd lost my mind. You can't help but relate and secretly be glad you're not alone. I can't imagine anyone not getting a kick out of this book.

Second on my Sleigh Ride Tour favorites - Dani Stone's Next Left.

Fans of chick lit and romantic comedies will enjoy Dani Stone’s debut novelette, Next Left, about a New York City woman who comes home to be a bridesmaid in her former BFF’s wedding in Kansas. Newly dumped and barely making it in the Big Apple after she lost her job, Amanda is both heartsick and homesick. Stopping in at Jitters, a coffee shop/bar, to ask for directions, she meets barista/bartender and Harry Connick Jr. look-alike, Luke, who reminds her what she misses about the Midwest - cowboys. The New Year's Eve nuptials provide plenty of drama, humor and the perfect time to reflect on her journey. Could all the wrong turns her life – and her GPS she calls Jill – lead her to the right place after all?

I don't know what it is about these Buzz Books USA authors, but they are all so witty... laugh out loud witty. Dani tells a story of true friendship, home and my favorite a romance that leaves you rooting for the couple and wanting to know the rest of their story. It's nice story that will warm your heart during these cold winter nights. I highly recommend it.


      A dystopian dark comedy about life after the virus.

Two single co-workers, Molly and Sandra, are left behind after a mysterious virus kills everyone but them and the strange file clerk in the basement, Anne, in the old high-rise corporate office. Things are tough - Spam, the lack of men, Anne's gossip about mutants living outside the building, but after a year, it's Sandra's bra that gives out, forcing she and Molly to Molly's former favorite place ever, the Mall. Sandra's looking for support while Molly can't wait to get her hands on some lip gloss. But is Anne crazy or are there really mutants, like the strange creature they saw peeking into their window just nights before?

Can they get back before sundown? Is the Mall a dangerous place, even without a credit card limit? If men couldn’t be trusted before the virus, can they really be trusted now?

This humorous look at two women who didn't get along in real life, but become family after the virus, showcases the nuances of humanity and relationships.

Honestly, I wasn't sure if I'd like this story, but I found myself intrigued. Watching Revolution they never talk about where the ladies get their "unmentionables". But even in a mutant ridden world you've got to take care of the girls, right? I was pleasantly surprised and found myself on the edge of my seat watching Molly and Sandra navigate this super scary world. I mean come on, the mall is scary enough without mutants trying to kill you... I can barely handle the tweens and teens, more or less mutants. I really enjoyed this story and believe you will too. Admit it, you're curious and you won't be disappointed.

I really hope y'all enjoy these three wonderful Buzz Books USA stories from the Sleigh Ride tour and you'll be hearing more from me on the other titles in this tour. I believe I own most, if not all, of them. Buzz Books USA knows their funny ladies. Again you won't be disappointed.

And don't forget it's BOGO, so buy one today and get one FREE!!
