Diary Entry

Diary Update
August 1st 2013

This is a little Mandy post that I attempt daily. I love being able to ramble about all things bookish.  I've been slacking and I want to try harder to create a better daily diary post. 

A new month, all new challenges, new goals and a whole lot of awesome books to read. 
I've been making so many lists for this months. 

Currently reading

Swimming Upstream
by Jack Thompson 

The third book in the Raja Williams series. I love Raja he's the good guy with a heart of gold who's a private detective. 

The logo was an embossed gold crown over the head of a falcon holding a sword. The name on the card, Raja Williams, meant nothing to her. All she had was third-hand information from a stranger that this was someone who could help. He certainly couldn't make things any worse. She turned over the card and dialed the number on the back.


Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings
by Helene Boudreau

This one sounds awesome!! I look forward to checking it out and wanted to share. 

First zit. First crush. First…mermaid’s tail?

If she hadn’t been so clueless, she might have seen it coming. But really, who expects to get into a relaxing bathtub after a stressful day of shopping for tankinis and come out with scales and a tail?

Most. Embarassing. Moment. Ever.

Jade soon discovers she inherited her mermaid tendencies from her mom. But this revelation raises a serious question: if Mom was a mermaid, how did she drown?

Jade is determined to find out. But how does a plus-sized, aqua-phobic, mer-girl go about doing that, exactly? And how will Jade ever be able to explain her secret to her best friend Cori, and her crush, Luke?

This summer is about to get a lot more interesting…

Cover Reveals I've seen today
Cress by Marissa Meyer (Goodreads)
Forever by Karen Ann Hopkins (Goodreads)

Death's Awakening 
by Sarra Cannon


For sixteen-year-old Parrish Sorrows, life is about to become a nightmare.

This is the night she'll wake up to her mother's convulsions. The night she'll lose contact with her father and sister in New York. The night 911 will stop answering the phone.

This is the night a mysterious supernatural virus begins its deadly rampage across the globe, killing billions in a matter of days. And just when things can't get worse, the dead begin to rise.

Parrish must embark on a perilous journey to find what's left of her family. Along the way, she'll team up with the gorgeous boy next door she's always been drawn to, the snobby ex-bff she's hated for years, a genius computer nerd, and a young boy who never says a word but is somehow a kindred spirit.

DEATH'S AWAKENING is the first book in Sarra Cannon's new Eternal Sorrows series. Told from alternating points of view, this story is packed with action, magic, and romance that will leave you begging to find out what happens as this group of teens struggles to survive the zombie apocalypse.

They are about to find out zombies are the least of their problems.

Recent addition to my shelf

The cover looks awesome. I think the synopsis enhanced my desire to read it.
