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?

Winter's Passage (A Novella) by Julie Kagawa

Meghan Chase used to be an ordinary girl...until she discovered that she is really a faery princess. After escaping from the clutches of the deadly Iron fey, Meghan must follow through on her promise to return to the equally dangerous Winter Court with her forbidden love, Prince Ash. But first, Meghan has one request: that they visit Puck-Meghan's best friend and servant of her father, King Oberon-who was gravely injured defending Meghan from the Iron Fey.
Yet Meghan and Ash's detour does not go unnoticed. They have caught the attention of an ancient, powerful hunter-a foe that even Ash may not be able to defeat....

While I merely enjoyed “The Iron King”, I loved “Winter’s Passage”. Kagawa has a descriptive voice that makes visualizing the world of the fae easy as pie.  This story was very action driven and did not let up for a minute. You are drawn in with the first page and then shattered when it ends so abrupt. Luckily, I have “The Iron Daughter” on hand to start immediately. Ash became a much more likeable character as you see him fighting his feelings for Meghan. Though he is determined to keep his word and deliver Meghan to his Queen Mab, even if it means Meghan’s death, you can tell that he’s torn about this decision. I expect when the actual time arrives to do this he will be unable to wholly comply.

I wish they would have it in a traditional book version. I like bring old-fashinoed, and having a real book with real paper in my hands. But I'm excited for the release! I'm hoping they'll make a movie version of the series, but on the other hand, I'm not since it might cause some drama with who should portray the characters and all. You know, the usual with books becoming into movies. (:
