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?

Guest Post & Blog Tour-Joshua and the Arrow Realm by Donna Galanti

                                    Joshua and the Arrow Realm 
                                          (Lightning Road #2)
                                                 by Donna Galanti
                            Publication Date:  August 30, 2016
                                 Publisher:  Tantrum Books

Joshua never thought he’d return to the world of Nostos so soon. But, when King Apollo needs his help in the Arrow Realm, Joshua’s will and powers will be tested in order to save him.
With his loyalties divided between our world and theirs, Joshua wonders whether he alone can restore magic to the twelve powerless Olympian heirs, or whether he is being tricked into making the one mistake that might cost them all.
JOSHUA AND THE ARROW REALM is the exciting follow up to JOSHUA THE LIGHTNING ROAD which the Midwest Book Review called, “a heart-pounding thrill ride.

“Fast-paced and endlessly inventive, Joshua and the Arrow Realm is a high-stakes romp through a wild world where descendants of the Greek gods walk beside you, beasts abound, and not everything—or everyone—is as it seems.” ~ Michael Northrop, New York Times bestselling author of the TombQuest series

Name your top 3 favorite things (other than writing) to do and why. 

Biking because I can fly! My bike takes me anywhere. I can escape at a moment’s notice and I always get scene and plot ideas when I bike. 

Kayaking. Another amazing escape. I can drift away into lake coves and spend time in nature’s music. The water takes me where I want to go and I can float through another world. It makes me feel like I can become anyone, do anything, forget everything.

Spending time with my son. He is funny, smart, and reminds me of all I did right in this world when everything else feels wrong. Plus I am a sucker for silly boy humor. It never gets old!

She’s lived in other exotic locations, including Hawaii where she served as a U.S. Navy photographer. She lives with her family and two crazy cats in an old farmhouse, and dreams of returning one day to a castle.
