Book Haul: Time to Catch Up

Book Haul: Time to Catch Up

Three months since my last haul, and four new and shiny books to show. :) Stand-Off by Andrew Smith. I got this little darling sometime at the beginning of September, I believe, and of course read it straight away (oh how I’ve been waiting!). In my opinion this one isn’t as good as Winger, but though I was disappointed … Continue reading

Reading Update: February

Hi there reader…person January was one of the best reading months in my blog-life…too bad this one ended up being one of the worst… I’m not entirely sure what happened these past weeks to make February so slow book-wise, but I didn’t like it. I know it’s pretty inevitable to have bad reading months, but … Continue reading

Quote of the Day

“Wolf,” she whispered to herself as the water began to percolate. She let the word linger, feeling it on her lips. To some, a wild beast, a predator, a nuisance. To others, a shy animal who was too often misunderstoodby humanity.” – Marissa Meyer (Scarlet)

I Have an Addiction

Is it weird that I can spend  hours in front of my bookshelf, staring at the rows of books with a big smile on my face? Is it weird that I sometimes pick them up, feel them, stroke them over their covers, open them up and take a long, slow breath. Is it weird that … Continue reading
