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?

Sexy, tough, and deftly sprinkled with dark humor.”—New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione

Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Wellington was the FBI's best profiler. The bacteria got her anyway. But she survived. She recovered. And when she woke up from a drug-nightmare of captivity, her trust in her fellow man had gone from shaky at best to nonexistent. Her mysterious rescuer wants to convince her he's the exception. But no matter how tempting he is, with his angel's eyes and devil's tongue, Vinnie knows she shouldn't trust him.
If the FBI were still around they would rate Raze Shadow as one of the bad guys. His military training can't wipe out his association with the Mercenaries, the most feared gang in a thousand miles. His loyalties are compromised. He won't even tell Vinnie his real name. But there's no FBI in the new America of fear and firepower, only instinct and risk. And the way his arms wrap around her tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is concealing, he can't hide his desire . . .

“Thrilling post-apocalyptic romance at its dark, sizzling best!” —Lara Adrian

“This second entry in the series maintains it high level of anxiety and promise for the future of humanity. Even though the women of Vanguard have been stricken with and beaten the contagion, their survival represents hope for the remaining population. Trust is a commodity that is difficult to come by and presents the biggest challenge. This is a heart-pounding tale that is well told.”- RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

I love this series! While the heroes are all male, believe me the ladies are not ones to let them run all over them. They are spunky and Zanetti has a way with her dialog that will have you snorting with laughter frequently while reading this awesome series. I have loved dystopian books for ages now and feel like the  Scorpius Syndrome is one of the better written series. It has romance, action, suspense, humor--
all the ingredients for an exceptional storyline. 
As with the Walking Dead, you quickly realize that the zombies are not the real bad guys, it's the sociopaths running things that you need to watch out for. The research that Zanetti has done for this series is down
right scary as so many of the possibilities she has made up aren't really that far a stretch. So if you want some kick ass romance and some science that will scare the crap out of you, check out this series. Oh, and the best part-there's another book, Justice Ascending due out at the end of January.
