Diary Entry

May 6th 2014

I can't believe it's already May. I feel like the year is flying by to fast. Not enough time in the day.

Currently reading

 Rainwater Kisses by Krista Lake ~ only a few percent in but won't take long.

Book Club
So I wanted a local book club to belong to for ages because I love talking about books. I decided to start one of my own with a bunch of the Air Force wives. We have our first meeting next Friday and I'm super excited. It's at my house so I'm a little nervous after all I do have the monster puppy who likes to be in everyones face and is huge. I hope I don't scare anyone off.

For this weeks goodreads game I'm reading Rainwater Kisses. My other challenges for the year are way behind but I hope to fix that by the end of the summer.

Book I can't wait on
The One by Kiera Cass comes out tomorrow. I feel like I've been waiting my whole life to see how it will end. I hope she picks the right guy even though I don't know who that is at the moment....Eek so excited and nervous. I ordered it didn't show up yesterday of course. I hope it shows up today if not I may have to get the ebook. I can't wait any longer.

My bookish obsession
I keep adding more and more books but can't seem to ever catch up. I just love beautiful covers, and synopsis captivating. I have this never ending TBR list that I hope to one day read every book on. I started a notebook with the name of the book and author so I can keep track and make some headway on my TBR list.

New Wishlist 

The Young Elites by Marie Lu


I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

Doesn't this one sound interesting? I haven't read her books before but this one is a must for me.

Real life & Rant
It has been a crazy last week.
I had my wisdom teeth taken out on last Wednesday.
My hubby left for Japan on Thursday.
The next few days are quiet.
Last night I took my pup to the dog park. A unsocialized dog started a fight with my boy. I warned her ahead of time that Grimm was a puppy a really big puppy and tended to play rough. I told her to put him on the little side not bring him in but after a little time on the little side he was on the big side. Her dog the whole time tried to start stuff my boy was doing really well even though the little guy kept trying to get in his face. (Little dog with big personality). When Grimm dropped his stick her dog grabbed it. When he dropped it Grimm grabbed it. Her dog attacked him. Of course let's add that Grimm is over 110lbs while her dog is a 25lbs shiba inu. My dog's tooth put a whole in her dog. He was defending himself. Of course being way bigger it looks worse. While breaking up the fight her dog turned around and put a few holes in my leg. Her dog was so upset he kept trying to get Grimm after she had him pinned. I've never seen a dog so angry and wanting to kill my dog before.  I had a long 3 hour trip to the ER. She didn't take her dog to the vet just cleaned it up. Which is what I would have done if it was my dog. My dog isn't aggressive but he will defend himself and we have had puncture wounds before many times. Dogs play rough. Dog fights happen. I always watch my dog because he is bigger than most. I don't understand why people bring unsocialized dogs to the dog park. I get you want to socialize your dog but maybe a controlled environment and watch your dog. I feel bad her dog got hurt. It wouldn't have been so bad but her dog went insane. In the past Grimm has pinned the dog till he calms down but this guy was fighting and going crazy. Of course it's my fault I'm the bad guy. My dog may have not gotten bit because of all of his fur but I'm the one with the battle scars. I'm glad I had jeans on it could have been much worse.
End rant.
