Follow Friday (7)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison can Read.   If you are new to the #FF fun, Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. First you leave your name on Parajunkee’s site, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to Parajunkee, and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them hi in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! ok now for the question! Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what? This is tough for me, most of the changes I would make have to do with simply not ending the series, or with cliffhangers. There are a bunch of books in the middle of series that I hated the ending of, but they mostly got… Read more »

Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday (6)

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.   After taking a pretty long break from Waiting on Wednesday posts, today I was ready to jump right back into it. And I knew the exact book that I wanted to choose- Underworld by Meg Cabot! It is no secret that I love Meg Cabot, and I have been craving her books lately. She is just one of those authors that you know you can pick up any book of theirs and love it. There is no uncertainty with her. If I want a great read, I can count on Meg.  So anyways, I go to my trusty goodreads and look up underworld….and there was no cover for it! I was crushed. I kept trying to think of other books and there are tons that I am excited for but I just kept coming back to good ole Mrs. Cabot. Then I thought, so what is there is… Read more »

Review- Gypsy Knights by Two Brother Metz

Gypsy Knights by Two Brothers Metz Kindle Edition Published May 19th 2011 by LoudCloud Publishing  Age Group: YA/Middle Grade crossover Source: Publisher Buy this Book: Amazon Summary (from Goodreads) Fourteen-year-old Durriken Brishen has lost his parents, his grandfather, and though he doesn’t know it, his Gypsy culture’s dangerous gift. Taken in and raised on the rails by the first woman to pilot a freight train, Durriken has one remaining connection to his Romani roots: a small wooden box that hangs from the hammer loop of his overalls. The last gift he received from his grandfather, the box contains the world’s first chess set. But a piece is missing: the Red Queen. According to Durriken’s family lore, the complete set awakens the power of Tărie, a mercurial gift that confers unique abilities on each new Master.

Dilia is a few inches taller, several degrees cleverer, and oh yes –… Read more »

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon Wrap up

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon Wrap up

First of all, I would like to send a big thanks out to Amanda @ On a Book Bender for hosting such a great read-a-thon. I had such a great time talking with everyone on twitter and getting to know other bloggers. Unfortunately, I did not have as much time to read as I had originally hoped. I had to pack up and move up to school and then move my sister into a new apartment, as well as doing my law readings for my first day of classes. That left next to no free time for fun readings. I only managed to get 3 books done. 3 out of my original goal of 9 is not so great. Maybe I was a little over enthusiastic when I made my goals for the read-a-thon. hehe But still, I had such a great time. I would do this read-a-thon again in a heartbeat!    Books to Knock Out The Last Rising by Rachel Firasek The Beast Call by Anne Tibbets Ordained… Read more »

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon Day 3 & 4 Summary

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon Day 3 & 4 Summary

I am combining days 3 and 4 because they are both big fat goose eggs! I didn’t get anything done! I packed up my stuff and drove up to my house at school and had to help move my sister into a new apartment. I have not been able to even unpack my stuff yet. That will be a task for this weekend. The drive up to school was stressful too, because I live in Florida and we just had Hurricane Irene pass us by. To me, this just means one thing- feeder bans. My 6 1/2 hour drive to school turned into a 7 1/2 hour drive filled with tons of wind and rain! There were times when I could not even see the road in front of me. It was not fun at all!    But now I am up at school, and today I have a free day to read, read, read! 🙂 Day 5 should have a much better summary! 🙂 (fingers crossed) 8/24 & 8/25Number… Read more »
