Diary Entry

Diary Update
June 7th 2013

I love blogging but in the last few months it’s been all work with limited fun and I don't see much of Mandy. So my new goal is to have a daily post of thoughts, random stuff and anything else I feel like sharing. Most of it will be bookish but I will have the odd random stuff. I love to talk about books so this should be fun and a great outlet for me.

Happy Friday!

I want to start off the day with a teaser of my current read well book I'm about to finish my review will be up shortly. Love the cover!!!

“Well, when you think about it,” he said, “we’re not exactly normal ourselves.”
I laughed. “Totally! ‘He’s creepy,’ said the girl who could change into a tiger.”
He chuckled. “ ‘He’s weird,’ said the guy who can turn rocks into mountains.”
The shivering had stopped. It felt so good to laugh. “And I thought it was bad with the brace,” I said. “I thought no one would like me because I was this freak, this untouchable monster. Turns out I’m an even bigger monster . . .” I stopped. I’d just said out loud something I’d never told anyone, even if it came out jokingly.
The smile slid from his face, his dark brows drawing together over his eyes. But the last thing I wanted was for him to feel sorry for me. “Sorry, never mind. Stupid,” I said, shaking my head.
He looked at me another second, his face unreadable, then reached up to close the collar He looked at me another second, his face unreadable, then reached up to close the collar of his coat more tightly around my throat. I pulled back out of reflex, but stopped myself. I felt very small, very vulnerable with him so close. He said, “Anybody ever tell you that you look beautiful in black?”
My whole body grew warm and the back of my neck prickled with goose bumps. I stuttered, “It—it goes with my stripes.”
Did that even make any sense? “You know, like, when I’m a tiger,” I sounded horribly lame to my own ears, but somehow I didn't care.
He smiled in a way that twisted my heart. Keeping his hands on the coat collar, he stepped closer. I tilted my head to look up at him. “Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re untouchable,” he said, sliding one hand around my neck and up into my hair. “Sometimes touching you is all I think about.”
I put my hand to his cheek and felt a deep tremor within. “Are you cold?” I asked.
“No.” His gaze slid down to my mouth.
His lips met mine. I kissed him back without thinking, sliding my hands around him, his heat enveloping me. His arms tightened around me, pressing our bodies together. All my senses expanded. His hands gripped me as if he’d never let go. A small involuntary moan escaped me as I arched into him. His mouth traveled down to my neck, his breath coming fast.

Her heart races, her muscles coil, and every impulse in Alessa's body screams at her to run... but yet she's powerless to move.

Still struggling to find her footing after the sudden death of her parents, the last thing college freshman Alessa has the strength to deal with is the inexplicable visceral pull drawing her to a handsome ghostly presence. In between grappling with exams and sorority soirees - and disturbing recurring dreams of being captive in a futuristic prison hell - Alessa is determined to unravel the mystery of the apparition who leaves her breathless. But the terrifying secret she uncovers will find her groping desperately through her nightmares for answers.

Because what Alessa hasn't figured out yet is that she's not really a student, the object of her obsession is no ghost, and her sneaking suspicions that something sinister is lurking behind the walls of her university's idyllic campus are only just scratching the surface...

The opening installment in a twist-laden trilogy, Stitch spans the genres of paranormal romance and dystopian sci-fi to explore the challenges of a society in transition, where morality, vision, and pragmatism collide leaving the average citizen to suffer the results.
