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?

"Dead Until Dark: Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in 
Bons Temp, Louisiana. You can tell she doesn’t get out much, 
and it’s not because she isn’t pretty. She is. It’s just that, 
well, Sookie has this “disability:” she can read minds. And 
that doesn’t make her too dateable. Then along comes Bill. 
He’s tall, dark, handsome—and Sookie can’t hear a word he’s 
thinking. Just the guy she’s been waiting for all her life. 
But Bill has a disability of his own: he’s a vampire with a 
seriously creepy crowd of friends. So when one of her 
coworkers is killed, Sookie fears she’s next….

Living Dead in Dallas: Sookie is on a streak of bad luck. 
First, she finds a body in the backseat of her car. Then 
she comes face-to-face with a beastly creature that gives 
her a painful and poisonous lashing. Enter the vampires, 
who graciously suck the poison from her veins—like they 
didn’t enjoy it! Point is, they saved her life. So when 
one of them asks for a favor, she complies…and soon Sookie 
finds herself in Dallas, using her telepathic abilities 
to search for a missing vampire. There’s just one condition: 
the vamps must behave, and let the humans involved go 
unharmed. Which is easier said than done….

Club Dead: Sookie’s vampire boyfriend, Bill, has been a 
little distant lately. In another state, distant. He’s 
on a secret assignment for the vampire queen of Louisiana, 
and only his sinister and sexy boss Eric knows where to 
find him. Soon, Sookie is off to Jackson, Mississippi, 
to mingle with the über-underworld at Club Dead—a 
dangerous little haunt where werewolves, shapeshifters 
and vampires go to chill out and suck down some type O. 
But when Sookie finally finds Bill—caught in an act of 
serious betrayal—she’s not sure whether to save him…or
 sharpen some stakes."

I sat down and read this series in two weeks. Could not 
wait to get to the next book. I sat up several nights till 
2 or 3 just to read "one more" chapter. Simply one of 
the best vampire series out there.

I absolutely loved this series as well and couldn't put the books down once I had started either, talk about addictive! Also, I may be in love with Eric Northman ;)

Here's my review if you're interested in reading it:

Have a lovely weekend (",).

This is an awesome series! I read the newest series in 4 hours! I cannot wait for the next one to come out!! Have you seen the TV show on HBO?

I haven't. I'm always disappointed in a movie that was taken from a book sooo. I thought I'd wait till the books weren't too fresh in my mind and then try True Blood.
