Changes are underway

Ok, I've been working on my blog's look and layout, and especially the template.  I've decided to go to a more unique approach. One that suits my style better than a pre-designed template. I'm simplistic in some manners where as I also like a little flair as well.  I hope that you will like these changes that are occurring. For as in time they will just keep getting better and better as I get through my schooling, since I will be learning stuff like building templates and such.

I start College again August 21st so I am trying to get everything major done before then so that all I have to do from then, is write reviews and minor things.

Thanks for being patient while I'm doing this =^.^= TOODLES

Shadows (Lux 0.5) By Jennifer L. Armentrout

Read from July 19 to 20, 2012Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout


I thought this was a pretty good short story for the series, unlike other people who have probably read the other books first, I read this one first then I'm going to continue on to the rest of the series. I'm pretty excited to delve into this series, and it totally reminds me of cocoon which ironically was mentioned in the book a few times. But all the same, it seems like it's going to be a pretty interesting adventure to take and now, I have many questions that I am seeking to be answered. See what happens when you read a short story prequel instead of starting like most people have lol.

Fair Game (Alpha & Omega 3)- I somehow missed this one on my HUGE update

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This one was ok, it wasn't the typical Charles and Anna book but I still enjoyed it. Where Charles was losing his grip on himself, Anna was becoming more secure in herself. But then they had found each other again and it was the greatest thing ever. it was like true love born again.

Hounded by Kevin Hearne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've been seeing this series around and about on Goodreads for a while now, so I thought I would give it a shot. Quite frankly I'm quite pleased that I did. It is a new intake on the paranormal world. I love the main character, I love it that it's a guy instead of the usual kick ass female (which of course I love). I also love the sub-characters such as Oberon, he's a totally kick ass dog, I loved him. I'm quite intrigued with Atticus's new apprentice and what's going to go on there. As for the Tuatha Dé Danann as usual they are a bunch of users that only do things that are in their favor, and the women they are pretty much horny broads lol. Which in itself is entertaining. Again I'm glad I read this and will be continuing on with this series.

Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

this book was just as great as the first one. It's long so it took me a few days to get it fully read, but I love how the entire basis of the book is set in 1590. They people you got to meet and the stories that were told and the things that were learned. Diana and Matthew totally could've stayed there the rest of her life and been content. But they couldn't and it was great to see them home, and I so can't wait for the last book, i'm so excited for it to read the conclusion to this epic story.

The Shifter by Janice Hardy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was kind of similar to the Poison Study and Glass Study books written by Maria V. Snyder. But instead of people having different magics, these people only had Takers or Healers as some are called. They are able to take pain out of people and put it into a thing called pynviu…
