I'm Making A Comback! Well, I will be...soon!

Okay, so here's the deal. My home internet has finally been restored! AAaaaahhh! Those are the book angels above singing their rejoice and shining their book lights down upon me!

I can't wait to get back and start posting reviews of some really great books I've read, share some book news, maaybe host some guest posts...maybe even a giveaway! 

Now the bad news. The rest of this week and the beginning of next week, I have to work. That may not sound like a big deal for most to of you back-breaking hard workers out there, but yours truly hasn't been to work in almost THREE years! The life of a stay-at-home-mom can be pretty cushy but for these next few days, I'll be temping at my old office job. 

During that time, I'll be scouring the blogosphere, cracking down on my reading and coming back full force; hopefully with a few design changes!

Thanks for sticking with me guys! See you soon!

My Life is Good!

Thanks to a new friend at Bookingly Yours, I've been passed this very cool award!

To accept the award you must link back and thank the person who gave you the Life is Good award
and answer the 10 questions and pass it along to 6 other blogs :)

1. If you blog anonymously are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?

I do not blog anonymously. I put my real name out there, and yeah I know that isn't always the smart thing to do. But I figure, if I'm gonna get famous one day doing this, I want people to know my name!

2.Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side:

Just one? Okay let's see. Whenever I'm in Borders (that's where I get all my books), I go in for a book I've been waiting for, but then my eye catches another and another that I've been wanting. Instead of compromising and trying to save money, I get them all! Does that count?

3.What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
I actually just got a new haircut (about a week old) and I still surprise myself whenever I look in the mirror. But when I really look, I see someone who has a lot of hard work ahead of them, someone who is scared of what the future holds but is anxious to see the end result.

4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?

There's a Pretzel Time in the mall I go to and only in the summer do they offer this crazy delicious Berry Lemonade! Mmm mmm mmm!

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?

If I get time to myself, that means my daughter's with someone else in the family. Usually I use that time to clean my house, or food shopping, go to the mall and shop there, maybe get a new book or two, if I'm lucky! Time for myself is more importantly quiet time alone!

6.Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?

I would LOVE to write a book of my poetry. I do have plans to post some poetry here. If you write poetry, you might be able to undertand that even though is always within yousometimes it's easy to tap into and sometimes it isn't. Right now, for me, it isn't. But I'm reachig for it! Publishing a book of my collected poetry would put me on the moon! 

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever , the shy person, or always ditching?
I'd have to say none of the above. I was just there. I guess you could say I was popular, not like a Homecoming Queen or anything. We didn't have those. I was just an average student.

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment of your life what would you see?
Me in the hospital giving birth! I know, a pleasant visual isn't it? So far, that's the most monumental thing I've done in my life. Having a daughter changed my life and the way I see the world.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?

Usually I do best when I don't have to put my true self out there. However, I'm trying more and more to be myself everytime I post. Soon, it'll be second nature.

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Definitely read. People just go on and on about nonsense sometimes. Books offer more variety in conversation. Something exciting is bound to happen in any book!

Shame On Me

Well, after my catch-up post, I checked my other posts (which I should have done first), and I noticed that they didn't exactly go through. I tried blogging from my cell phone and apparently it just doesn't work or I'm doing something wrong! Sorry about that guys - won't happen again!

Oh, and if you were waiting for my review of Valiant by Holly Black, well, sorry. I haven't read it. I started to, but I put it down to start on Echoes by Melinda Metz. Does that ever happen to you? You start reading something and even if you get into to, you put it down to start something that might be better? I think I do that before every book I read. I pick up one book but then I start worrying if another book might be better! Well, I get back to the reviews soon enough!

Playing Catch Up

Hello my lovelies! I've always wanted to use that! Anyway, some of you might know that I am currently without internet in my house, so it's hard for me to blog as much as I would like. So I've decided to do a catch-up post while I can.

First, here are some books I received from their authors. Henry Melton contacted me on the YA Blogosphere seeking reviewers for his books shown below:

I know the titles are hard to see so here's what you're looking at: Emperor Dad, Lighter Than Air, Roswell or Bust, Extreme Makeover, Falling BAKward, Golden Girl, Pixie Dust, and his newest release, Follow That Mouse. They're all sci-fi kind of books (which is a little out of my norm) but they look really good and I can't wait to get into one! If you're interested in any of these, feel free to contact me.

Next, I was also contacted by Erin McCahan, author of I Now Pronounce You Someone Else. She sent me a copy of her book and guess what? She'll be stopping by my blog on October 12th during her blog tour! That's one month from today so be sure to come back and check it out!

Last but definitely not least, I went to Borders yesterday and picked up three very amazing books! Clockwork Angel, The Eternal Ones and Halo. Now seriously, I don't think I should have to mention the authors of these books. You really ought to know them by now! If not, just click the links I've so graciously provided. I can't tell you how happy I am to finally have these books on my shelves! How will I ever decide which one to read first? Pfft! Who am I kidding? Clockwork Angel is first!
