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?

 She’s been Bewitched, he’s Bewildered

When a mysterious illness begins to sweep through Noctem Falls affecting the children, Eleanor Kimball is called to the city to see if she can determine what is wrong. As a pediatrician Eleanor loves children and desires many of her own, however, after several dating disasters she has not only sworn off men, but has given up her dream of a family, and the promise of a destined mate.
After discovering Grant in Noctem Falls she is faced with her own insecurities and finds it hard to believe in his love.
Grant Douglas is a man of few words and doesn’t do well surrounded by others. He is scared to death of finding a mate. He believes the harshness of his past, where he struggled to survive, didn’t cultivate a gentle heart. After a series of terrifying nightmares where his mate is at risk, Grant has decided he doesn’t want a mate at all.
When he meets Ellie, he realizes there are some things worth fighting for. Even if it means putting himself out there by becoming the Alpha he was born to be and facing the power he desperately tries to hide.
As Ellie starts to believe in Grant’s love it will take every ounce their combined strength to discover why the shifter children are suddenly falling ill before it’s too late.

Excerpt : (unedited and under copyright by Alanea Alder ©2017)
It wasn’t until after they sat down that she noticed a small figure sitting across from her. They had their hoodie pulled up and they were laying with their face down on the table. “Are they alright?” Ellie asked pointing, unsure who sat in the chair.
The head lifted and Ellie was shocked to see that it was Meryn. The small woman’s eyes were barely open and she looked frightening. Bleary eyed she pointed to them. “Ryuu,” she croaked.
“Is she okay!” Ellie asked concerned.
Ryuu nodded a slight smile hovering over his lips. “Denka, isn’t at her best in the morning. We’re still waiting for the first pot of coffee to finish.” He pulled something out of his vest pocket. “I believe these were made for the two of you.” Ryuu handed them two small stones. Ellie looked at Grant and was about to ask him what they were when she was caught off guard at his pure unadulterated joyous smile.
A part of her wished her mate would be happy enough to smile more often, but if she was honest with herself, she was glad that his dazzling smiles were few and far between. They made them that much more special.
“Dude, you’re like super sexy when you smile,” Meryn said her voice sounding rough.
Ellie beamed at her. “I know right!”
“Die morning person.” Meryn put her face back on the table.
Ryuu patted her shoulder. “She doesn’t really mean it.”
Ellie grinned. “I’ve worked in many hospitals, trust me, I’m used to grumpy, sleep deprived people.”
She turned to her mate who was still grinning like a kid at Christmas. “What are they?”
Grant held up his stone. “They are…” He turned to the half dead human. “Meryn, what are we calling these?”
She lifted her head and snarled. “You’re seriously asking me to think?”
Grant pointed to the stone. “You created it with the twins, you should name it.”
“Call it ‘Mornings always suck huge elephant dick’.” Meryn grumbled
At the other end of the table Magnus and Adriel choked on their blood. Elizabeth and Eva however looked unfazed.
“Is she always like this in the mornings?” Ellie asked Eva.

Eva winked. “Why do ya think I eat breakfast down here. Not only is Sebastian’s cooling phenomenal, but I get a show too.”
