In the land of trees and bees

So I have left my love the city, and am now in the a place so tiny that one needs a magnifying glass to see it. All around I look, and all I see are trees. Trees so tall that they almost touch the sky. I went out into the woods today, and I saw giant trees and bugs of all shapes and colors. NOT to mention the big boulders that were also present. It is a very different place from the concrete jungle that was once my home. This place does happen to have a "public library" but I do not know if I will be able to get any new books. I'll have to keep in contact with my secret source who knows all the hot picks. The new Janet E. Stephanie Plum book has come out and I can't wait to get my hands on it. So now here I sit next to my main squeeze listening to him on the guitar and wishing that I were back in my concrete jungle with a Starbucks in my hand, instead of the real deal and no Starbucks.

My Favorite Book :)

Mean MARGARET. I must admit this book was written totally about me. I talked to the arthour and told her how i was cast into the woods by my jealous siblings (I am the youngest of 9) and then taken in by a pair of woodchucks only to tourment them! HELLO I AM THE QUEEN OF THE WORLD!! Well eventually I did find my way home, and did learn that beaing mean is not so cool....or did I? Yer haf ter read the book ter find out!

Iron Kissed

So I've just finished two books in 4 days. Now to you avid and totally kick ass bloggers *like Darla D* this is nothing. But for me, who's mind thinks faster than I can type this is quite an accomplishment. Ok, now one of the books was written after me [not really] and ok, is a child's book. But hey, should that really matter? I mean it is longer than 20 pages! Ok, so the first book was Patricia Briggs "IRON KISSED". Its the third book in her series featuring Mercy Thompson.

Books in this Series:

1) Moon Called
2) Blood Bound
3) Iron Kissed
4) Bone Crossed

I loved this book. Within the first two pages you are thrown into a heart racing mystery. Her friend Zee once aided her in her 'war' against the Vampires and now he is asking her to return the favor and see if she can "smell" out the killer on the Fae Reservation. However her nose gets her into more trouble, and along the way she has to fight off a rouge fae and the US Government to not only save her good friend Zee but her boyfriend Adam's pack.
I could not put this book down, which is a FAR cry from those shopaholic series {SNORE!} If you are reading this review then you ab-so-lute-ly have to read this series!!!!

Finished with a boring book, but one to a thrilling book....

So I have offically finished the book. Now to say that I loved this book and could not put it down would be a huge lie. The book was ok. Imagine me saying this with a shoulder shrug. It didn't really captivate me. That is not to say I dislike the author. I like some of her work, and after talking to Darla D, I came to the conclusion that I don't like this series. I think this character is horrible. I find her to be more dim than an old light buld, constantly failing to learn her lessons.

One such example would be in the finale of the first book she pays off her debts, but in the begining of the second book [pictured left] she's in debt again and can't understand why the bill collectors are after her. Could it be possible to have this series then without her needing to be so mindlessly stupid? I will finish this series out, I believe I have three more books and then never EVER re-read these. I love re-reading books but this series will not be one of them.

But on the good side I get to read IRON KISSED. I am so excited and can't wait. It will be a refreshing piece of work to read for a change. A main character who is smart, strong willed, and doesn't buy mindless stuff.
