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?

Magic and mayhem bring a witch and a Hollywood producer together…will an ancient curse tear them apart?

Fiona Burns, a witch who sees dead people, meets Hollywood producer Bailey Powers, who sees her as the next cable star—and a fake. Even so, she’s tempted by the dynamic producer in more ways than one. But she has a big distraction—a vicious curse on her family coven.
The ghosts of New Mourne warn of the return of the Woman in White, a vengeful spirit who claims the life of a Connelly witch from every generation. During the battle, Fiona unwittingly fuels the demonic forces, and black magic brings death and heartbreak to her family.
Initially a skeptic, Bailey is soon caught up in her supernatural battle with forces of evil. He’s also beginning to think Fiona can help him escape his haunting past. With magic and mayhem at war and survival on the line, the Witches of New Mourne face a new challenge from their ancient foe. They discover that not all dark deeds are borne of the Woman but a demon who is bent on gaining the Woman’s powers for his own. Will another generation fall? Or does the curse end here?

Magic Excerpt:

Overgrown weeds 
covered the back of cemetery. In the 
deepening gloom, Fiona stumbled over a
stump. The baby’s screams filled her head. 
She had to help this child.

The grave 
markers in the back of the cemetery were the 
oldest ones. Some of them were so
weathered it was impossible to read the names and dates 
on them. When they 
reached the back corner, Fiona knelt. 
All she could hear was the baby’s cry.

She dug through 
the weeds and scruff in front of her, 
ignoring the sting of thorns on her
hands. Bailey dug with her, and soon she touched the 
cool stone of a broken 
grave marker.

MacCuindliss” was carved in uneven 
letters deep in the stone.

“This is the 
Woman in White’s baby.” Fiona traced 
the name on
 the marker with tender
fingers. “Please don’t cry,” she whispered. “I’ll try to 
find your mother, I 

The baby’s cry 
faded to a whimper. The mist blew away,
 leaving Fiona and Bailey under a canopy
of threatening clouds.

Fiona breathed. “The Woman’s name.”
Lightning streaked over the mountains, and the
 ominous stink of sulfur infused the air.
