Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it 18 months now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

“Zombie socialite, Amanda Feral, and her undead friends, Wendy and Gil, descend on an idyllic seaside village for some rest, relaxation and the consumption of cute coastal townsfolk.

After a few years away from the Urban Fantasy genre, the dark and dementedly funny Mark Henry is back with the first installment in a new trilogy of hilariously gruesome novellas featuring everyone’s favorite undead socialite, Amanda Feral.”

Author Charlie Daye Interview and Amazon Gift Card Contest at BITTENBYBOOKS

I am a seeker of vengeance; 
A mender of broken hearts. 
I respond to the siren call of loneliness and despair. 
I was once a human woman; 
Very much like you; 
Until my heart was destroyed by the man I loved. 
My only purpose now is to avenge those that have been betrayed. 
I am Fury… 
And hell has nothing on me.

Evan broke Cassie's heart two months ago, and she still doesn't know why. She throws herself into family, friends and her new job at the sheriff's department, but nothing helps.

It looks like a sorcerer is to blame, but while Cassie tries to figure out who, others take matters into their own hands. With tensions running so hot, a single spark might set Eagle Rock ablaze.

Author Rose Pressey Release Party and $50.00 Amazon Gift Card Contest ay BITTENBYBOOKS

Lost on the Bayou is the first book in the Bayou Series. 

Grant Kenner’s life is the bayou. As game warden in Belle Grove, Louisiana, Grant spends his time along the water. He lives for his work and doesn’t waste much time on anything else. For years that’s the way he liked it. That all changes when Chloe comes back. 

Chloe Beaumont left Belle Grove years ago. As a full-time novelist, she spends her days writing romance and living in a make-believe world. Romance is for her characters, not for real-life. When her uncle suddenly disappears, Chloe returns to Belle Grove to find him. As much as things have changed in Belle Grove, they’ve also stayed the same. 

Chloe never thought she’d have to spend time with Grant Kenner again. He was one of the reasons she left the small town in the first place. But Grant may be the only person who can help her unravel the deceit, blackmail, and revenge along the bayou. Without his support, Chloe could be lost on the bayou in more ways than one.
