Monday's Beginnings (104)

It's Monday!  It's Monday.

I'm feeling pretty good this week.  And that's because of the nice relaxing weekend with a book.  I haven't had one of those weekends in some time.  We are always doing something with friends, kids, or working around the house.  But things worked out wonderfully for me to kick back and read.  I finished the whole book too! So I really had the time here. :)

I have big plans this week.  And with the energy I'm feeling for books right now, I'm hoping for a big week in reading.  (that happens when I read a book you enjoy immensely.)  Jaime really got my book reading flowing this weekend with her book.  I'm planning on finishing Killbox here today, as I don't think I can handle waiting any longer.  And I'm looking forward to Aftermath coming out here on the 30th.  And I'm hoping to finish Legends Reborn by the end of the weekend.

So whats been going on and whats in the plans...

Currently Reading:
Killbox by Ann Aguirre - for the Book Chat on Thursdays - Which I WILL finish this week for Thursday's chat.
Legends Reborn: The Light of Epertase by Douglas Brown - I'm planning on finishing over the weekend to come.

Yep, I'm a slacker.  I WILL be getting back to these very soon.  I'm thinking next week might work wonderful.  But we will see.

I did NOT write a Flash Fiction on Friday.  Sorry.  I was a slacker last week.  Things just didn't seem to fall in place very easily last week so I missed it.

My WANT list...well, I'm picking up here.  I added 12 books last week! Yeah! Thank you all.

For Review:
This was a lovely LOVELY surprise to find in my email last week.  An Arc for review.  Which the review will be up this week for celebration of release. :)
Goodreads Synopsis:
Vampires, and werewolves, and demons, oh my.

Rhiannon thought facing off against a deranged child vampire was the most dangerous task she would ever have to undertake, but she’s about to discover making a deal with a demon is far, far worse. Sent forward into another reality, one in which vampires are now dominating nearly extinct humans, she realizes the sooner she returns to her vampire lover, Disco, the better.

Unfortunately, time changes a lot of things; including those most trusted around her. When she’s faced with a loss and betrayal unlike any she has ever known, her focus shifts from severing the debt between the demon that wants to kill her, to exacting a revenge that will bring forth consequences she never could have fathomed. By reaching out to the darkness lingering within her, she’ll find the strength to push forward despite the circumstances that would see her dead and buried.

After all, when it’s all said and done, all that she has left to lose is her soul.

So another week is with us.  And summer is starting to feel as it's coming to a close with schools starting. *sigh*  Where did it go?  But I'm hoping to get into the flowing schedule of school season easily this year.  And it means calming and more relax time for reading.

How are you looking at the beginning of this week?  Does it look like a good reading week for you?

Here's to having a great week in words and pages.

And I figured I'd keep up with the music for you as it's fun.  So lets do another song...
Okay, for me I just listen to the song and not watch the video.  But I get a dystopian feel from the song, as they say we may not be here tomorrow.  But then I get the feel of a man just looking for a reason to take a woman home with him.... any trick in the book. *shacks head*  But still, I do enjoy the song and it's got a wonderful beat for dancing.


  1. Bad bad Melissa for missing last weeks flash

  2. I am stomping around here trying to find my whip! Did you hide it? Is that what you were doing instead of writing the flash? Uh huh... No probs... I'll just go down to the farm supply store and buy a new one. You know I'll just be using it more so I can break it in! ;)


  3. Blodeuedd - Um, so sorry... I really hate missing the Flash Fictions. They are just so much fun to do. But I have a bad bad habit of getting to carried away with them. :) I'll do better this week. lol

    Melissa (Books&Things) - um... um... you weren't suppose to know I took the whip. Um, I'm so sorry... I'll do better this week ma'am. Miss... um what ever you say...

    lol. :) I'm so glad you enjoy the Flash Fictions. I didn't think anyone really liked them. Well, other than you two. :) Thank you for making me feel better. :)

  4. The Renfield Syndrome sounds like it might have a connection to Bram Stoker's Dracula other than it has vampires in it.

  5. StephanieD - Hmm, I don't know about a connection with Bram Stoker's Dracula. But it really is a wonderful read. :) Thank you for stopping by!

  6. Anytime I see Renfield I think Dracula, so like Stephanie, I wonder if their is any connection.

    By the way, this has to be one of my favorite Pitbull songs. Great choice!

  7. Ryan! Hey. Hope you are doing well. And I just enjoy this song. It just has a nice beat and all to it. One that makes me want to go dancing. :) Thank you!
