I just wanted to say I am sorry for the lack of posting on the blog the past couple of weeks and for the halt in the blog event. I have had a family emergency and was unable to focus on the blog. I plan to go back and fill in the posts I missed and try to catch up in my plans. Hope you all understand and that everyone had a good holiday and new year.
I’ll be blogging soon.
GoodReads Challenge: I want to read 25 books this year, so far I have finished 15. I hope i can finish all 25 but I won’t be too upset if I don’t. College has consumed my life, but I’m working on editing and updating the blog.
10,000 pages in 2012:So far I’ve only read 4,567 pages. I’m a bit surprised that this number is so low but what can you do?

So I haven’t posted in awhile with what I’ve been reading or how I’ve been liking the books. So I thought I would talk about it for a bit today. If you’ve been stalking my goodreads you will know that I am “currently reading” 12 books. I know this is a crazy number but some of the books I have put on hold or hiatus or whatever you would like to call it. And about five of them I am actually “currently reading.”
But I would like to discuss 3 in particular that have really been holding my attention lately. The first is Blink Once, I started this very recently and I like how it’s started. I hadn’t read the synopsis in awhile so I almost started the book blind in a way. Sometimes I like to start a book knowing nothing about it. It can be surprising and I like to be surprised in a book. It’s a totally different experience to read a book when you know next to nothing about it. So far I’m enjoying it and can’t wait to get farther into it.
The second book is Random Magic. And it is that, random and full of magic. I find myself laughing and tilting my head countless times since starting the book. So many different characters and things going on in the book. I also find myself wanting to munch on something. That may be partly due to the fact that food is mentioned every now and then in the book. This book really is quite an adventure.
And lastly for today I would like to mention Bullet by Laurell K. Hamilton. I know, I know. Alot of people have given up on the series by now, actually alot of people gave up awhile ago. But I keep getting sucked back into the story and the characters. I normally will read 3 or 4 in the series back to back and then I will take a break and read something else. I think that is why I’m still in it with this series. I love the writing, while some of the books storylines could have been a bit better. I keep coming back to all the magical-ness that is in the Anita Blake series. I can’t help but need to get my Anita Blake fix.
GoodReads Challenge: I want to read 25 books this year, so far I have finished 8. I think I am off to a good start so far, considering starting college.
10,000 pages in 2012:So far I’ve only read 2,415 pages. Not bad, seeing as it’s only March. I do plan on reading Game of Thrones and a couple other big books so that number should jump higher considerably.
2012 Reading Challange: My goal was to read 10 books that have been sitting on my shelf or released 2011 or earlier. So far I’ve only read 4 out of that 10. Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann, Going to far by Jennifer Echols, Deeper than Midnight by Lara Adrian (ADULT), and Wither by Lauren Destefano.
Reviews to come: Wither by Lauren Destefano, Zero by Tom Leveen, and Cross my Heart by Sasha Gould.
Currently Reading: Skinned by Robin Wasserman

I have read 4 books towards my 25 & I have read 2 books towards my 10 of my TBR Challenge. Pretty good so far. =]
Just wanted to let you all know, that my blog may be changed throughout the next couple of weeks. I am working on new pages and posts so the blog may change from time to time. I am still also trying to decide on a definite theme but I’m still not hooked on one. If you guys have any suggestions for posts or things you want to see go ahead and drop me a comment or hit me up on twitter.
I apologize for my lack of posting this week. I have computer problems that will hopefully soon be resolved.

Book Buying Ban
November Wrap Up
If you have read my previous posts you will have seen that I have finished the Maze Runner, and I am soon to finish The Body Finder. I finished Harry Potter but I will not be doing a review. (Everyone has seen/read it) But yes, I loved the book. It had more details than the movie gave. (naturally)
I’m behind in my NOV TBR but maybe I’ll catch up in time. December is approaching, have a book you want me to read and review? Leave me a comment.
As I’m sure most of you know, or have heard. Breaking Dawn part 1 is opening in theaters tonight at midnight. I for one, am excited. I originally read Twilight back around when it first came out. Way before it was hyped and hated on. By no means are the Twilight books my favorite. But I do enjoy them, and no I am neither Team Edward or Team Jacob. Honestly, I don’t mind either of them but I don’t see why people obsess over it so much.
I do hope that the movie lives up to the book, because Breaking Dawn is my favorite in the saga. I’m interested to see where they leave it off at. I know I’m going to be bummed wherever they leave it off. I personally wish they would just make it one really long movie…but no they need/want money.
Are you going to see the movie? If so, what are you hoping for? Where do you think they will end part 1?
