Diary Entry

Diary Update 
August 15th 2013

It's Wednesday half way through the work week!! One day closer to the weekend.

Just Finished

Collide by Shelly Crane (Review)

I like the idea it's a interesting alien invasion story. I'm almost done it's been a crazy week so I'm lacking in reading.


The news said they weren't everywhere yet, mostly big cities, but logically wouldn't that be so, considering large cities held more people. Ratio to ratio it was probably the same everywhere.

I wasn't too keen on travel myself since all cell phone, national television and wireless broadcasting services had gone down a year ago. Landlines  local television networks and radio stations were all that was left.

Up Next 
Grasping at Eternity by Karen Amanda Hooper (Goodreads)

Opening Line

I wanted to punch a hole in the sky, rip it open, and fly out of this world and into a magical one. Except I never punched anything in all my seventeen years of life, I didn't believe in magic, and I sure as heck couldn't fly. 

Wish List
I just stumbled across this one and have to add it to my growing TBR shelf.

by Mia Fox


The discovery of an ancient bottle unleashes a Genie - and the wrath of the Demon Gypsies chasing her...

When Suzette (“Suki”) is released from her bottle by two teen girls, she is more than a bit surprised that a Genie of her calibre is beholden to two average high school students. After dealing with dignitaries and noblemen, however, she believes this will be a welcome break.

Until she discovers the teens’ hidden powers and that one will come to possess the Amulet of Pollox, a necklace that contains the secrets from some of the greatest minds throughout history. Unfortunately, she’s not the only one who notices. The Amulet draws the attention of the two powerful and vengeful Demon Gypsies who have pursued Suki through time and will stop at nothing to snatch the girls and the Amulet.
Suddenly, Suki is not just helping the girls navigate high school crushes, she’s safeguarding them from danger unlike anything they’ve ever known. To make matters more complicated, she must also fight her attraction to James - her protector through the ages - whose sudden arrival threatens her resolve and her heart.  

A time-traveling Genie and her unrequited love...

Demon Gypsies with an insatiable quest for power...

And the teen girls whose existence threatens them all.

This is the world of “Released,” book one of The Romani Realms series by Mia Fox, a Young Adult trilogy featuring elements of paranormal romance and steampunk.

How I choose which book is next. 

I've been working really hard to clear my review pile it's still big. Yet it's getting more manageable for me. So since I'm getting more caught up I've decided it's time to put in effect the system for choosing books that will still make reading fun. I've had so much review books I've been missing out the ones I'm dying to read.
My Plan is to read one of each per week

  • Review/Tour Book
  • TBR Jar
  • Netgalley
  • Kindle Freebie 
  • My choice
I plan to read one of each a week. Hopefully this will break up my reading slump and allow me to read a few of the books I'm dying to while still reading review books. Hopefully this will allow me to clear more of my shelf because it will allow me to read more of the books I want to read.

Cover love
Inhuman by Kat Falls (Goodreads)
Love the cover and synopsis can't wait for Inhuman.

Movie News
I at last saw the new Vampire Academy Movie Trailer. I can't wait I love the series and the movie looks like it could be awesome!!!  It's a teaser but it's worth checking out. (Here) I really need to finish the series.

200 Book challenge update
I hit 100 yesterday only 100 more to go but sadly I'm 12% behind and 24 books behind. So close but so far.

Have reading!!
