Got My Eye On:  Book & Blog finds

New This Week

Tentative "reviews" scheduled by authors Ernest Cline,Tim Curran, Megan Abbott, Jeff Strand and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, another Got My Eye On which highlights the blogs and books I discovered while poking around the internet and perhaps a Horror Film Friday or a feature on bookish podcasts if get it in gear.  

Real Life

Things continue to be a wee bit stressful. My golden Buddy suffered another seizure after going two weeks seizure free. He was blind, deaf and unable to walk for a good hour and a 1/2 this time around. But when he finally snapped out of it he was happy and super hungry but I had to feed him out of my hand because his depth perception was off. He gave me a big kiss in thanks. It's so sad to see him go through this but I've been told he is not conscious during the seizure which is a huge relief. Here he is chillin' with his chubby pal Evil Kitty. It's a rough life :) 



Submission Status

I am booked up with reading selections for the next month but if you have a new release in the horror, romance, erotica or monsterporn genres and would like a little spotlight on your book without a review please leave a comment on this post or, if you prefer to keep things under wraps, you can contact me via my queries page. No interviews, no giveaways and no stock blog tour posts though.


Now on to the books!

Real life and fiddling around with some formatting/categorizing stuff on this blog kept me busy so there wasn't a lot of time for adding to the tbr piles but I still managed a few. I also figured out how to make little round buttons and get rid of frames on the pictures which made me feel accomplished :)  I'm linking this post up to Stacking The Shelves Sunday PostMailbox Monday & It's Monday! What Are You Reading? because I met so many great bloggers last week and found some fab books too. 


Netgalley

I did not successfully avoid the siren call of Netgalley this week and was approved for this one. Mr. Kirbs was not at all surprised.

In the Mail

Only one "real" book was added to the pile this week. I know. I can hardly believe it myself. This unabridged audio arrived via paperbackswapSince audio's require 2 credits, I am feeling accomplished. 2 out, 1 in. Not bad, right?

  2. I hope your dog feels better soon. It’s hard to watch pets go through an illness.

  4. Awe the poor fellow, I am glad he doesn't seem to be aware. It sounds like you are taking great care of him. One day at a time and lots of hugs. Seeing Evil looks good, and I have the Devil Crept In as well Enjoy your new books!

    1. Thanks Kimba, he's as sweet as ever and we're spoiling him rotten. Seeing Evil was a good serial killer thriller. I had a few nitpicks but overall it was entertaining.

  6. Our very first boxers had seizures occasionally and they are tremendously scary. Sending lot of hugs and kisses Buddy's way. I have The Devil Crept In as well. It will probably be my first read from that author although I've bought several others for my Kindle when they were daily deals.

    1. Thanks so much Barb. I started him on medication yesterday because they seem to be increasing on frequency so hopefully it slows them down a bit. I am so looking forward to The Devil Crept In. I hope you enjoy it.

  7. I'm glad Buddy doesn't know or feel anything during a seizure. Poor guy. Yay on naps though. I don't think we adults treat ourselves to enough of those.

    1. You're so right. My pets, kids, husband - they all know how to nap. Me? Notsomuch :)

  8. Poor Buddy. We had that problem with our golden. It's heartbreaking. When the episode passes they do bounce back. Goldens are a happy sort.

    1. I didn't realize this before it happened but goldens are prone to seizures and brain tumors :( My other golden, who was curly and red and smaller than Buddy, lived to 16 and never suffered from either. Fortunately, Buddy has had a long, happy life and we are thankful it didn't happen when he was a youngster. It's tough enough now.
