Hello and Welcome! It's time for the weekly blog hop Follow my Book Blog Friday hosted by parajunkee.com.
If you let me know that you're a new follower I will gladly return the love and follow right back! :)
Question of the week is:
How did you come up with your blog name?
Well this blog started because I wanted to review for booksneeze.comso I asked a friend to help me think of a blog name since I'm not good with names at all. But when neither one of us could come up with anything I just went with what I do best, reading between the covers of a good book all from the comfort between the covers of my bed! And of course with me being the reader that is how Reader Between The Covers came about! :) Nothing really exciting lol

Anywho I am reading Camilla Lackberg's Scandinavian crime novel, The Ice Princess, which is set to debut in paperback in America March 29, 2011.
The Ice Princess introduces us to Erica as she returns to her childhood home in the isolated fishing town of Fjallbacka, after her parents' deaths. She is unprepared for what she finds when she arrives, though- her childhood best friend Alex, dead, her wrists slashed, and her body in a tub of frozen water in her family home.

I'm really excited for this book, I love crime novels! The action starts off from the very beginning but I don't want to giveaway too much! The only problem I have with this book so far is the extremely loooooooong chapters! It annoys me to the core! I like to read chapters in a book varied in length but I don't know it could just be me having a little OCD moment. I would certainly like to know how do you feel about really long chapters? Annoying or not?
Keep an eye out for my review of The Ice Princess, which I should be posting March 29th.

July 2, 1928 - February 14, 2011
Today is the one month anniversary of my grandmothers death. She passed away on Valentine's Day February 14, 2011. This is just a post to honor her memory. She was a beautiful woman. Words cannot even describe how wonderful she was. Once someone got to know her they couldn't help falling in love because she had such a great personality. Always laughing and dancing and encouraging her grandchildren to be the best that they can be. I miss her so much but I know I will see her again, when God decides its time for me to go home. Its still hard to let go though. I remember how every Christmas the only thing I wanted were books and nobody would buy me books except for Grandma. And every birthday she would always be the first one to call me, early in the morning, to tell me happy birthday and sing to me De Colores or Las Mananitas or Que Bonitos Ojos Tienes. These memories bring tears to my eyes because I am going to miss that call so much. The world seems a little less bright now that Grandma is no longer here. She was such a strong beautiful woman who made such a huge impact on my life and is part of who I am today. I love her with all my heart and wrote a little poem for her. If it doesn't make sense to you its ok my grandma understands what I'm trying to say.
Forever In My Heart
Grandma I never thought you’d go
You were our rock
So loving, caring, and nurturing
What will we do without you
The pain today hurts just as much
As the day I saw you take your last breath
I jumped out of my seat
And ran to your side
It wasn’t real
It couldn’t be real
The Lord called you home
I knew you were ready
But I wasn’t
Crying was the only thing I could do
I knew my tears could not bring you back
Screams and sleepless nights will not either
My heart aches and I remind myself
No more pain
No more worries
No more suffering
So I can’t be selfish
You’re in heaven now
Eternal life with God
Reunited with Grandpa
My guardian angels
So now I wait
For the day when I get to see you again!
When I was little she used to make me sing to her Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You". She later told me that she loved the way my eyes looked when I would sing it.

Lauryn McBride is in charge of auctioning off Mark Chisom's, one of the victims, estate. With her father under the debilitating clamp of Alzheimer's, Lauryn must sort through the mysterious old house alone. She soon realizes an evil still threatens her small town and she might just be in over her head.
Amede Dastillion had just about given up searching for her long lost sister. That is until she received an unexpected package from Abbey Hills, giving her a new lead.
I didn't completely fall in love with Tandem but it definitely wasn't the worst book I've ever read. The romantic part wasn't the most unique idea anyone has ever come up with. Just another guy certain of his faith in God, falling for the girl who has none. Can he help her find God? I was, however, pleasantly surprised at the combination of the Christian theme and vampire characters. Believe me I know how that sounds but Tracey Bateman made it work. So I say, if you're lookin for a vampire novel with a little more substance than Twilight's sparkly ones give Tandem a try you won't be disappointed.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
