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?

Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, Bk 1) By Melissa Marr

Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, Bk 1)
Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, Bk 1)
Author: Melissa Marr
Book Type: Hardcover
Rating:* * * * 1/2

"The clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in this cool, urban 21st century faery tale. Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries. Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world, and would blind her if they knew of her Sight. Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries. Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer. Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention. But it's too late. Keenan is the Summer King and has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost! Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working any more, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything. "

Just read this and absolutely fell in love with the fairy world. Even though I read it online and my butt went to sleep several times, I still managed to read this in two days. I like that the outcome is not obvious and there are enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. A must read for lovers of paranormal romance. You can read the first 7 chapters free at this link. The author has offered it as a free read so don't pass up the chance to get acquainted with a fabulous new(to me) writer.

I loved this book! I read this years ago when I was still in college (undergraduate) and I can't believe I finished the last book in the series this year, already graduated from grad school!

I loved the faerie world and I especially love Seth! His tattoos, piercings, and love for her make him amazing!
