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?

WELLLLL - WE'RE WAITING WEDNESDAY # 14 (Oh! and I'm having another WWWW contest)




What's your WELLLL- WE'RE WAITING book for this week?



Title: Pure
Author: Jennifer Armentrout
Genre: YA
Paperback: 320 pages 
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press (4/2/12) 
ISBN-10: 0983157227


There is need. And then there is Fate...
 Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her.
 When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.
When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.


Title: Fated
Author: Alyson Noel
Genre: YA
Hardback: 304  pages 
Publisher: St Martin's Press (5/22/12) 
ISBN-10: 0312664850


So here's the deal . . . Strange things have been happening to Daire Santos. Animals follow her, crows mock her, glowing people appear from nowhere. Worried that Daire's having a breakdown, her mother sends her to stay with the grandmother she's never met, who lives on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico. There Daire crosses paths with Dace, a gorgeous guy with unearthly blue eyes. Her grandmother recognizes Daire's episodes for what they are - a call to her true destiny as a Soul Seeker, a person who can navigate between the living and the dead. Guided by her grandmother, Daire must be quick to learn how to harness her powers because Dace's brother is an evil shape-shifter, out to steal them. Daire must embrace her fate as a Soul Seeker and discover if Dace is the guy she's meant to be with . . . or if he's allied with the enemy she's destined to destroy."

YA books always have the best covers dont they?

I am waiting for Hold Me If You Can by Stephanie Rowe, the third book in her Soulfire series. It has a pretty hot cover of its own...I mean come on he is holding fire! So I am waiting for January!!!

I tried to leave a comment before but it didnt seem to stick.

YA covers always seem to be beautiful, even if I rarely read them.

I am waiting for Hold Me If You Can by Stephanie Rowe, the third book in this series. Come on January, it can't come soon enough!

Kristi said...

Ooh both of those look great! They're also on my "to-read" list.

Another book I find myself so excited for is Everneath by Brodi Ashton. I believe this one doesn't come out until January something. Not only is the cover quite beautiful, but there's heavy influence of mythology. Can't wait to read it!

I am ashamed to admit that I haven't read anything by either author. I am hearing great things about Jennifer Armentrout though.
