Diary Entry

Diary Update 
December 18th 2013

Halfway through the week with Christmas just around the corner. I'm not ready are you? So much to do and so little time. Lots of books I want to finish before the end of the year that I'm not sure I'll finish. I also wanted to have all my challenge plans ready for the new year. 

Currently Reading

Ice by Sarah Beth Durst (Goodreads)

I've quickly become a fan of her writing. I loved Drink, Slay, Love it was a fantastic book one of my top 10 for the year. Ice is re-telling of the classic fairy tale East of the Sun, West of the Moon one of my favorites when I was a child. Ice has two covers the English one and German one but I prefer the German one. Which one do you prefer?


“You’re mine,” she whispered as she sighted down the barrel.
And the polar bear stepped into the ice. In one fluid motion, he rose and moved backward. It looked as if he were stepping into a cloud. His hind legs vanished into whiteness, and then his torso.
She lowered the gun and stared. She couldn’t be seeing this. The ice wall appeared to be absorbing him. Now only his shoulders and head were visible.
Cassie shook herself. He was escaping! Never mind how. Lifting the gun, she squeezed the trigger. The recoil bashed the butt of the gun into her shoulder. Reflexively, she blinked.

And the bear was gone.

I'm only 6% in but hooked. Should be one of those books I'll finish today. Well after I mail off the last of my christmas stuff.

Just finished

I just finished the Vampire Academy series reading 2-6 back to back. It's a captivating series that I just fell in love with. Great characters and a fantastic story. My new favorite vampire series. I'm dying to see the movie. I can't wait my poor hubby has agreed to go but he's not thrilled about it.
