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 believe it was in Daughter of the Forest of Son of the Shadows by Juliet Marillier that I first learned of Selkies, so I would have to say that.

The Little Mermaid is a favorite of mine.

Well, I've been wracking my brain trying to think if I've read any under-the-sea-adventures. I have one Audiobook of: Above World by Jenn Reese that would fit this theme, but I haven't read/listened to it yet. It's not that I avoid this theme or anything. I just haven't read one yet. But I do love the ocean, mermaids and dolphins! You have to love the water living in Florida. Thank you for being a part of this fantastic blog hop!

Kind of a classic, it's been around for a while and reprinted a few times, try Quest for a Kelpie by Frances Mary Hendry.

Honestly? Tangled TIdes and Of Poseidon. Both were AMAZING. I love Tangled Tides because of the depth of mythology, and I love Of Poseidon, well, mainly because of Galen (definitely NOT because of Emma). lol. Thanks for the giveaway!

That would be Waterborne, book 3 of the Seaborne series by Katherine Irons. The story was very imaginative and full of action and some hot sex. I really liked it.
I'm really liked this hop, it's very unusual.
