The Daily Diary

The Daily Diary
August 5th 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. 

New month filled with all new goals challenges and more. 

Currently Reading

Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Goodreads)
You would think I'd have read this before Obsidian but I didn't however it's still good even if out of order. Just a short little story that I think will make reading book two better.

Goals for the month so far still working on the list.
1. Stay ahead on my tour books.
2. Blog more more non review posts.
3. More time commenting
4. At least read 20 this month.
5. Catch up on my review pile.

Non-bookish goals
To make a purse I have a idea or two
to work on my crochet blanket
make at last a few of my bracelets/bookmarks
start sketching
work out more can never have enough

Around the blogosphere

Susan Dennard is having an awesome book club month (Here)

I plan to write my discussion post today. This week's question is fantastic.

Twitter complaint
I can only follow 2000 people till I have more followers. I love reading though tweets I'm kind of a tweet stalker when I'm dinking around on my Kindle Fire because it's easy to get lost in the apps. I wish I could follow more. I feel like twitter is saying sorry you're just not cool enough to follow that many.

New to me
Chaos by Christine O'Neil (Goodreads)
I happened across this one and it's been added to my wishlist. I love the cover and the synopsis sounds interesting. Looking forward to checking it out when it comes out.

14 by Peter Clines (Goodreads)

One of my goodreads friends is reading this book. She's not done yet but I decided to check it out. Sounds super creepy with potential to be really scary but I love a good mystery so what's not to love.

One of my favorite authors shared a the Cover & Blurb for her new book. 

Til Death
by Kate Evangelista
Expected Publication March 2014


Sixteen-year old Selena Fallon is a dreamer. Not a day-dreamer, but an I-see-the-future kind of dreamer. Normally this is not a problem as she has gotten pretty good at keeping her weird card hidden from everyone in her small town. Except from her best friend Kyle and her grandparents, of course. But when Selena dreams of her own rather bloody death, things get a little too freaky even for her.

Enter Dillan Sloan. Selena has seen the new guy in a different dream, and he is even more droolworthy in person. Beyond the piercing blue eyes and tossled dark hair, there is something else that draws her to him. Something…electric. Unfortunately, Dillan makes it more than clear that he does not feel the same. They just met, so why would he act like he hates her?

When Dillan and Selena are forced together one weekend to work on a school project, Selena prepares to be ignored as usual. But when she stumbles across a few undead in the backyard, Dillan comes to her rescue and reveals a whole lot more. Not only is he part of a society that hunts otherworldly creatures…she is too. And she is being targeted by a force bigger and darker than anything she ever imagined. Despite her death dream, Selena is not going to give up easy, especially when she discovers that Dillan might not actually hate her after all.

I think she's just teasing me because now I have to wait forever to get my hands on her new book. Kate is the author I will drop all books for to read. She's never let me down. I can't wait so excited!!! Plus such a beautiful cover! 

Have a great day!
