The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Last night I finished reading Grace Lost by M. Lauryl Lewis. It's a great read and was FREE from Amazon! It's not a typical zombie novel. This had a few twists in it; the MC, Zoe, has an unusual "talent". There are some heart wrenching moments as well, like any good zombie horror book. Not everyone survives and it leaves you with a huge cliff hanger. Also, you have to overlook some typo's and a few missing words but still an awesome read. Installment two will be out Spring of this year, so I'm anticipating Tainted Grace along with so many other sequels for so many other series.

I also NEED to get my hands on Deadline by Mira Grant so I can be caught up when Blackout comes out in May of this year.

Also I WANT to read Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin. Ashfall was so remarkable that I need to read the second book of the Ashfall Trilogy.

Music wise, I'm just waiting for something new and unexpected to hit the airwaves. I want to be in awe of it and feel the NEED to buy the CD asap! I let you know when and if it happens!

After brainstorming and talking to Carolyn Brown, Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and I have decided to use a Linky that you only have to sign up for once. Yep, no more signing up every week. Just fill out the info in the below Linky and then post every week. If you miss a week or two, don't fret. We're very understanding hosts.

  1. I didn't realize they were making Percy Jackson into a film. Awesome!

  2. Great list! There are some on your list that I'm looking forward to also.

  3. ...very much looking forward to Warm Bodies. I agree, it was a great story ;)
