Happy New Year 2012

I love it when a New Year arrives. Its a time to get a fresh start in life and plan the goals that you want to comment to. I have a few New Year's resolutions that I hope I am able to keep, for example, try to slowly get back to blogging, and many more personal goals. But besides that, I hope that everyone has a nice New Year and have a happy reading.

Review: Ghost Town by Rachel Caine

About- While developing a new system to maintain Morganville's defenses, student Claire Danvers discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers. Through this, she's able to re-establish the field around this vampire-infested Texas college town that protects it from outsiders.

But the new upgrades have an unexpected consequence: people inside the town begin to slowly forget who they are-even the vampires. Soon, the town's little memory problem has turned into a full-on epidemic. Now Claire needs to figure out a way to pull the plug on her experiment- before she forgets how to save Morganville...


My Review- As always, I just adore the Morganville Vampire Series. Rachel Caine never writes anything boring or a been there, done that book. And she always keeps us waiting on our toes for the next book in the series.

In Ghost Town, Claire has to fix the machine that runs the town since Ada got destroyed. Without it, the town defenses will be down, including the portals and the town barriers.

After some sort of incident, Claire has to finish working on the machine without any rest, to the point were she feels like just passing out. Once she finished, she thought everything would turn out just fine, but of course, it doesn't. Within the next day, she encounters one to two people who had forgotten something completely or temporarily.

As the novel progresses, we start to see some of Claire's friends get affected too. But in order to save Morganville, Claire has to get access to the Control Room under Myrnin's lab, but that is kinda hard to do when Myrnin also loses his memory and does not even remember who Claire is, or what happen to Ada.

Now, I don't want to give everything away just in case some of you are reading this but has not read the book yet. But as you can see, this book is anything, but boring. The ending is such a cliffhanger too. The cover looks great, but I feel like they could have done a better job. I guess that the girl on the cover could pass for Claire. I really recommend this book, and I just cannot wait till I get my hands on the copy of the 10th book of the Morganville Vampire series Bite Club.

Broken Record...

I am starting to feel like a broken record when I say this, "Sorry for not writing posts and being on the blogging world!" This summer, I was planning to do many things, but then I got sidetracked because I had to take summer school. I failed my global history regents by 4 points only!!! Anyway, now that I am done with summer school (that sounds like a dirty word when said together) and I finished taking my make-up history regent, I will indeed try my best to blog. I have hoped so much for this blog when I first started out and it was becoming everything I wanted it to be, but then life got in the way and, well, you know the rest. Now that I am becoming a Junior in high school, I am going to have even more pressure on my back.

If anyone has any advice on how to juggle school time, homework/studying time, and blogging/reading time, I would love to hear it.

Also, I plan to write a review for Ghost Town by Rachel Caine quite soon since I had planed to do that two months ago. Be on the look out for it soon.

Happy Reading!!!

Teaser Tuesday: Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"A cowboy, a lawyer, and a mechanic watched Queen of the Damned," I murmured.
Warren—who had once, a long time ago, been a cowboy—snickered and wiggled his bare feat. "It could be the beginning of either a bad joke or a horror story."
"No," said Kyle, the lawyer, whose head was propped up on my thigh. "If you want a horror story, you have to start out with a werewolf, his gorgeous lover, and a walker..."

Book Blogger Hop

It's time for another week on the HOP!!!!!! I love the book blogger hop. You find so many great book blogs that you never even heard of before. Here is Jennifer's from Crazy for Books explanation of it:


In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun! This is a weekly event! And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added! We get over 200 links every week!!

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.

If you start following someone through the Hop, leave a comment on their blog to let them know! Stop back during the week to see other blogs that are added! And, most importantly, the idea is to HAVE FUN!!

Now there is something new on the Hop and that is, each week you answer the question given.

This week question: When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?

My Answer: Well, I am not quite sure how to answer this one, but I guess that I realized reading was a passion of mine and truly important in my life when felt like it was my escape from the real world. It's just so nice to know that whenever I want to relax, all what I have to do is just pick up a book and get lost in it.
