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?

5.0 out of 5 stars “Amazing and Strong Second Installment in this YA thrillerish super-human romantic suspense”—Sophia Rose on SPARKS
Excerpt 4: Ryan

Ryan’s adrenaline was pumping, his heart pounding, yet he’d never felt so disconnected, almost feeling alone as for the first time being this hyped up, he couldn’t sense the other animals in the trees or hear every one of the forest’s movements all at once, including the movement of Donna’s heartbeats.
Guessing the Original would have taken her right back to where he’d nearly killed them as children years ago had been a risk that had paid off. If it hadn’t … Ryan shook thinking about it as he frantically tried to move toward Donna who for a moment, overtaken by fear and most likely seeing abilities for the first time—not including the times she couldn’t remember—took a step back from him.
“Donna, it’s just me, it’s ok. I promise I’m ok,” he said as he put his gun away and put his hands up. Slowly but surely she moved a step forward and he approached her also slowly too. He never thought he’d be this close again to losing her as he took in her beauty in a new human way that almost made him feel insignificant. He noticed with his eyes instead of sensing with his senses that her body was shaking and that’s all the time he needed before he was moving in, grabbing her gently, and wrapping his arms around her as she stood still.
“Donna, Donna, I’m so sorry.”
She didn’t do what he thought she would, what she had done last time, which was frantically try to ask him what was happening, what he or the Original were before her memory had been messed with by Saul when they were children. Instead what came out of her mouth was, “How did you … How did you stop him?” Her heart was racing fast as he held her in his arms and could feel it and her warm body up against his chest, matching his own crazy pulse.
