Hello Friends! Happy Monday…I guess. 😛 I had to weekend off and now I see why Monday’s suck. Also, truck day is never fun. It’s even worse when you have to go in a 6 in the morning.

Enough complaining…at least I have a job that pays the bills, right?

At the moment I am still listening to Finders Keepers by Stephen King

22453035

Let me tell you…I don’t know why I am so amazed at the crazy mind of Stephen King. Most of the stories I have read by him so far have all had a supernatural element to it. This one is just crazy people with a need to kill for whatever reason. Makes my skin crawl.

I am also reading Minutes Before Sunset by Shannon A. Thompson

25170253

I kept saying how i just wasn’t interested in this story and didn’t think I would continue on with the series. I have officially changed my mind. This book is so good! I will probably finish it today and possibly buy the next book ASAP becuase it now has my undivided attention.

WeekTBR

Since I am so close to finishing one book and finished a book Sunday, I feel it’s safe to have a TBR for this week.

Exodia by Debra Chapoton

The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter

And…

Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty

Hello friends and happy Monday! Shockingly I got the day off work. This NEVER happens on a Monday due to it being truck day. But sadly, I don’t get another day off until Saturday so my day off is spent getting things ready for my blog this week. Of course, that isn’t a bad thing because this is a hobby that I love to do.

Let’s get this party started!

This week I am reading three books and listening to one. I am trying to get last minute books in to up my count for this month. I know, it’s not a race and as long as we are reading it doesn’t matter how many books we read…but when you have already bought 11 books in a month you kind of have to pick up the speed as to counter balance the TBR list…right?

Changes by Jim Butcher

6585201

I am on page 183/438. I need to pick up the pace, though I am reading it quicker than usual. This so far is my favorite book in the Dresden files series. I feel like we are seeing a new side to Dresden that I knew was there, but have yet to see. It has furthered my crush on Dresden.

Shadows, Maps, and Other Ancient Magic by Meghan Ciana Doidge

24894078

This is the 4th book in the Dowser series and I just can’t stop! I am in love with this series and I want more. Though, I debated last night if I wanted to start this one. Jade is made at Desmond and I really wanted something to happen between those two. The chemistry between them is amazing and ugh…I need Jade to fall madly in love with McGrowly and never look back. Sadly, I have already looked at a few reviews for this one because of the way the 3rd book ended and it looks like Desmond doesn’t even stand a chance with Jade and there is a new love interest and I am not okay with it, unless it was the vampire! Come on Meghan! I need McGrowly or the vampire to win Jades heart!

Sorry, the wound it still fresh from the 3rd book…

The Reflections of Queen Snow White by David Meredith

18780192

I was contacted by the author of this novel and he asked if I would review it. It sounded really interesting so I said I would give it a go. Normally, I would not have picked up this book at all. Mainly because the cover. I just don’t like it and I can’t really explain why. But I do love a fairy tale story and this one is obviously about Snow White and..Charming is dead! I started this one last night and I am still not so sure I am going to like it. I will continue reading, obviously, because I hold hope for all books. They are all a work of art and at least one person has poured their heart into the story. So far though…not to thrilled with it.

Lastly, what I am listening to.

The Game of Lives by James Dashner

23257464

I am in the last 30 minutes of this book. It has been so good and this book has been one joy ride of emotions. I am telling you, this series may be better than the Maze Runner series. I can’t wait to finish this, though I have a feeling I know part of how it will end.

Week GoalThis week I want to finish all the books above. Really bump up that book count. I am already 4 books ahead of schedule. I am making a little cushion for when Christmas gets here I guess.

I would like to start reading Serafina and the Black Cloak by Rober Beatty

23507745

And The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter

476543

That is all I am going to challenge myself to this week. It’s going to be a busy week.

I have two questions for you today.

  1. What are you reading?
  2. Do you start on a book as soon as you finish one or do you give yourself a break between books?

Late post today. I sort of forgot that I was working so late today and didn’t prepare my blog ahead of time like I usually do. Silly me. It’s all good though, readers never stop reading!

I just started reading Changes by Jim Butcher. It is the 12th book in the Dresden Files

6585201

I am in love with this series. I have been slowly making my way through the series to kind of drag it out a little bit.

I am also reading Trinkets, Treasures, and other Bloody magic by Meghan Ciana Doidge.

22059099

This is the second book in the Dowser series. Another series that I am currently obsessed with. I have been reading this while at work, so it’s been slow going, but I am almost to the end and plan on finishing this tonight.

I am listening to The Game of Lives by James Dashner

23257464

This is the third and possibly final book in the Mortality Doctrine series. Again, in love! I just love the whole virtual reality aspect of it.

Week Goal

Of course, my goal is to finish Changes as well as Trinkets. I would like to start on another Gena Showalter novel. I have only read her YA novels and I want to look into her more adult novels. If they are as good as her YA novels I may have another favorite author to add to my list. I have The Darkest Night on my night stand right now, waiting to be read first.

476543

This is the first book of the Lords of the Underworld series. My best friend turned me to these books. She said they were a lot like The Black Dagger Brotherhood books that I love.

I also have Serafina and the Black Cloak sitting on my immediate TBR pile.

23507745

I went to a book signing and bought this book. Got it signed and even got a picture with the author. I have been putting it off for a while now. I figured it was time to actually read it.

That is all that is on my TBR for this week. As we all know my week goals never happen and sometimes I am craving a book and I have to put the other books on hold. But at least I have a plan!

My First Book Signing

IMG_2822

Hello Nerds!

One day that title will mean something totally different! But for today, it just means I went to my first book singing event, of another author. Robert Beatty just released a novel called Serafina and the Black Cloak.

It was really fun. I got to talk to the author a little and who doesn’t love a signed copy of any book?

The event was held at my local Barnes and Noble book store, so of course I didn’t just get a signed book.

The event itself was pretty short. It only lasted about an hour. I stood in line for maybe 10 minutes to get my book signed because I got there early. Then there was a quick Q&A. I even got to ask my own question. There were not a lot of people there.  After the author went back to signing books and I found new friends.

I ended up talking to a few other ladies for about an hour about books, reading, movies, and writing. It was seriously the first time I have had an instant connection with people since high school. It was a blast.

Also, this is probably the first author I have personally met…ever. lol

And you should see the book behind the dust jacket!

Anyways, want to see what else I got??

IMG_2824 (1)I have been wanting to read Alice in Wonderland…so I finally bought the book. The cover is adorable.

IMG_2825

The writing prompts are cute and it just seemed fun. I may share a few. And you can never have too many notebooks. I am going to decorate this one and sort of personalize it.

IMG_2826No trip to a book store is complete without a few bookmarks. How cute are the owls?

I can’t wait to go to another book signing and make more friends!
