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 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?

Will she turn from them to her brother, Nate, who has been begging her to join him at Mortmain's side? Where will her loyalties - and love - lie? Tessa alone can choose to save the Shadowhunters of London.or end them forever.
Why? Second book in the series and have been holding on to the first book so I could read these back to back. I'm probably only one of a handful of people who have yet to read this. I've avoided any but the most general reviews of it so that I  would read no spoilers. Can't wait!
