Another fun way to share your book news and enjoy others is The Sunday Post hosted by

Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

Head on over and leave a link to your Sunday Post and hop around to visits others.


I woke up this morning and there was this strange noise coming from outside. When I got out of bed to go investigate, I discovered my back yard and the trees were filled with birds. There were so many and they were so loud.

Most of them were big fat Robins and they looked so pretty. I couldn’t resist going outside to get a closer look and you won’t believe what happened!.

Yep, you might have guessed. bird poop photo: bird poop birdpoop.gif Right on my head! LOL

I love this gif. It even looks like a robin!

Some people say it’s a sign of good luck. That’s how I’m going to take it anyways. Maybe it means spring is right around the corner. If I could be that lucky!

That’s my big event for the week. Have you ever had a bird poop on you? Do you think it’s lucky?

I’ll be hopping over to check out your Sunday posts so be sure to leave me your link!

I read this book a long time ago and it got lost when I moved across country. I finally decided to see if I could find it on Amazon. I got a slightly used paperback in excellent condition and can’t wait to read it again. This is a true story and it terrified me.

    What an awesome looking line up! That Inquisitor one really draws me in with the cover and I am so fascinated by the grizzly one but terrified to read at the same time – a fear of mine, to be mauled to death by a bear! :) Happy reading!

  2. Lola says:

    I heard some weird sounds last week as well and it turned out to be birds, it’s getting a bit warmer here so the birds are returning. I once got bird poop on me on the way to high school and once when I was going to an interview, I scrubbed it off best as I could. I didn’t got the job though, so I am not sure I consider it lucky. It’s difficult to get it off your clothes.
    You gto a nice haul this week! Night of the Grizzlies looks good, that’s nice you where able to get a copy of it again. Have a great week!

  3. The bird story made me laugh. I’ve been pooped on but luckily only on the arm (if one can be lucky when there’s a bird pooping on you.) I’ll definitely go with that’s good luck! Great books this week. I look forward to seeing what you think of Bubba Done It. I was seriously tempted by that one!

  4. You had so many freebies that looks awesome this week but I restrained myself to just one..lol. I have never heard of a bird pooping on your head being luck..not sure that has ever happened to me either..ewww…lol. If it does I better win the lottery. :)

  5. You are the Queen of Freebies. I had a seagull poop on me at an outdoor restaurant in Florida..I wasn’t amused. LOL

  6. I shouldn’t have laughed at your bird story, but I did! It sounded so lovely and magical, walking in amongst all those birds, and then… SPLAT. Sounds just like the kind of luck I have! I’d like to believe it’s good luck, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it at the time – especially if it happens when you’re nowhere close to home! 😛

    Congrats on your wins this week, too! :)

    Hope this week is good to you – and involves significantly less bird poop! 😉

  7. Naomi Hop says:

    Bwahahaha!! That would happen to me, for sure!!
    Enjoy your new reads!!

    Thanx for visiting My Weekly Wrap-Up!

  8. Christy says:

    lol – What a way to start the day. Ooooh lots of goodies. I’ll have to investigate them further. 😉

  9. Heartbreak Cafe sounds good and hope you enjoy! Have a great week.

  10. That trailer looks AWESOME! Oh, and I’m really sorry you got pooped on! XD

    Here’s my Weekly Recap!

  11. Dreams says:

    What are the odds of a bird pooping on you? And excuse me while I go shared the video with everyone. I’ll never be able to see Toy Story without seeing the comparisons now. XD

  12. Elisabeth says:

    I grabbed INQUISITOR awhile ago. Just the title snagged my attention!

  13. shannonmiz says:

    I have been pooped on. Several times. I think it distinctly shows how UNlucky I am, but your theory is less… pessimistic 😉 But yay for spring! The only book I’ve heard of is Cut Me Free, which was pretty good, but I do hope you enjoy all the new books, and you know, don’t get pooped on this week!

  14. Everyone tells me if a bird poops on you it’s time to go and buy a lottery ticket. It’s be a long time since I’ve been pooped on so I don’t know if it’s good luck or just a pain in the butt. LOL
    Hope you enjoy your new books and your week.

  15. alisbooks says:

    I have never heard that saying. Hmmm. Hopefully that will turn into luck for you! Great haul this week!

  16. atothewr says:

    My granddad once had a bird poop on him in the middle of a baseball stadium. Those guys have great aim.

  17. Heidi says:

    A bird pooped on your head… well there are worse things. At least it is a sure sign of spring which I think is welcome for most people. Hope you have a fantastic week!

  18. That book Mr. Swirlee looks like it would be a fun read.

  19. bruacioly says:

    I hope the bird thing brings you good luck at least! Haven’t had anything like that happen to me, but then again, I don’t go outside much. Hope you enjoy your books this week! 😉

    Bruna @ Bruna Writes

  20. Haha, wow, that is crazy! And I can’t believe there is a gif for that! Lol. I cant say its happened to me, and whether or not it’s lucky I have no idea!

    Great haul! And oooh, Horror Business, I reviewed that one last week too! I’ll have to go check out what you thought of it!

  21. You’ve been a busy blogger! With your bird poop and my three rabbits we could clean up at Vegas!

  22. The cover for that Maggie Le Page book is just so SASSY! I love it. Great haul this week!

  23. I have The Heartbreak Cafe on Sparky…to read it soon! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  24. katarguelles says:

    I also heard that was good luck. OMG I got pooped on in elementary school. It landed on my nose and it was embarrassing lol. It is strange to have so many birds so hopefully it does mean spring is coming soon!

    You got a lot of great books this week. I hope you enjoy them and have a nice week!!

  25. I grabbed the lake. Sorry it took me so long to get here. LOL
    sherry @ fundinmental

  26. I had a bird crap on my head in an 1800s cementary…. it was not pleasant lol

  27. That’s a great gif! I don’t think I’ve had a bird poop on me. I would call it good luck though…lol. I’ve read about grizzly bears and they’re scary! Hope you have a good week, Laura.

  28. Emma says:

    Bird crap on the head is good luck. :)
    Bubba Done It caught my attention. The Perfect Coed looks intriguing too.

  29. The bird story made me chuckle, but it probably wasn’t too funny at the time! And how on earth do you manage to keep so many posts going?! (shakes head in admiration)

  30. Melissa (My World...in words and pages) says:

    Oh my! Love that video of Toy Story and Walking Dead! LOL! That is perfect. lol.

    Hope you had a great week. :)
