Diary Entry


Diary Update
I decided to do my own little daily post that shows a recap of my posts and a teaser or other thought I wanted to share. At first I was going to call is This and That but came up with the idea of doing the Dear Diary concept. I'm sure this will turn into a bookish rambling daily post but I'll try to keep it to a low. Plus I love to journal so this works well. 

Yup photo-shop is my friend and I'm sure it will be till I get a perfect design. 

This week I'm currently reading Awaken by Sarah M. Ross. I should be done this morning and have my review done this afternoon. At least that's the plan however the hubby is off work after being gone a week so maybe I won't get it done but I'm going to try. 

My Teaser for Awaken

The last thing I remembered was belting out Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” while driving down I-95 with my best friend Janice. Two friends enjoying the sweet taste of freedom that summer brought with the windows down and the music up. It was my last weekend before I graduated college and had to join the real world. Finals were almost over, and the only one I had left was Advanced Calculus with Dr. Henry. I would worry about that later because right now, it was all about friends, sun, and surf. Our road trip to the beach was one last tryst of splashing in the ocean and soaking up the sun in our tiny bikinis before admitting we were truly grownups – taxes and 401K’s and all.

But gradually the realization dawned that I was no longer in a car. And there wasn't any music. Instead, I only heard low whispers all around me. Slowly, I pried open my eyes and looked around; I realized, with growing anxiety, I didn't recognize anything. Or anyone.
 “What happened? Where am I?” I asked the people hovering around me. “Is this a hospital or something?” 
Gazing around the room, there were other people with me, a few men and a woman. They all looked too young to be doctors and certainly weren't dressed like it. The guys were dressed normally in loose fitting jeans and tee shirts. The woman standing next to me certainly wasn't a nurse or doctor either. She was wearing a sea green baby-doll dress with lace adorning the capped sleeves and a single ruffle cut on a bias going from her V-neck line to her waist. Confusion overtook my thoughts and panic began to set in. Something was wrong. Did I have an accident?

So far I'm really loving the concept and characters 

Let's see what else to ramble about. I haven't had a chance to look at everyone's Wow's yet but I'm sure I'll be adding a lot of books to my TBR list. I'm also working on my commenting goal for this year trying to get in as many as I can. 

My reading goal has me 2 books behind and 1% behind at my current rate I need to beef it up or I'm going to be stuck looking at behind for the rest of the year. 

I'm also thinking of joining the 2013 Bingo Challenge (Here)

Well I guess it's time for Zumba and my coffee. 

Have a great day!!!!
