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?

Fashion victim just got a whole new meaning.
When vampire heiress Lilith Todd decides she wants a modeling career, she won't let her father stop her - even if he does threaten to cut off her credit cards.
Lilith's rival, Cally Monture, is in a different kind of hot water. Her boyfriend, Peter, is a vampire hunter - a sexy, sensitive soul mate who just happens to be sworn to destroy her entire race.
With the Rauhnacht Grand Ball fast approaching, both girls need the same things: a handsome escort and a dress to die for. But in a sea of shifting and dangerous loyalties, there's no telling who will betray them next.

I really, really liked the second book in this series. While Lilith still wasn't what you would call a likable person (vamp) you did see more of her vulnerability and a lot of the whys she was the way she was. I loved the fast paced action in this book and could have easily read another 200 pages of this story. I really did not want it to end. I loved the intrigue and world building that Collins did. Quite impressive. If you are looking for depth in this series you'll be disappointed but if you want a fun, quick read, this will fill the bill nicely.
