For breaking two promises, one to myself to write reviews quickly and not let them pile up, and the second to the person who sent me a free book in return for an honest review. It’s actually that review that has held up all the others, since I like to write my reviews in order but more on that in a minute.

There are about eight reviews I need to write. I know, FOR SHAME! It all started with The Blood on My Hands: An Autobiography by Shannon O’Leary , which was sent to me free for an honest review. I finished the book on June 10, 2016. I struggled to finish it, I wrestled with writing a review, to summarize, I gave this book 2 stars on Goodreads. Then I looked at the other reviews and everybody LOVED this book. This of course compounded my dilemma, since I didn’t like the book and couldn’t write a glowing complementary review. I could say more, I believe I will save it for the review I am about to write.

All past due reviews will be written today. That is my promise and determination. Some will probably be very brief since it has been a long time since I read the books and I don’t take notes. I will also be relying of the provided synopsis of most of the books. So here goes.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
