BOOKS AND BLOGGING PHILOSOPHY

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.

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!
Well, I've made it almost 5 years 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?

I have not read this series yet but I plan to. The tattoo's are awesome and the cover is so good, I would have picked it up in a bookstore just to take a closer look at that cover.

I have had this series on my wishlist since I first heard about it. Every where I go I hear/read nothing but amazing things about it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some of it at Christmas this year.

Amy@Amy's Book World said...

I think my favorite of the series is Hunted. It is when things changed and Zoey started to see Stark in a new light. I like Eric but Zoey belongs with Stark.
