Monday's Beginnings Vlog Style (115)

It's Monday...

And I really don't have much to say, as you can tell from all the um's in this weeks vlog. *sigh*  Sorry.

The Hour of Dust and Ashes by Kelly Gay

Thor (the movie)

Nano update:
  Needed to be at 10,000 words yesterday.  I'm at..... 14,100!  Yeah!  Still need to make it to 50,000 though.  But got all month to work on it. :)

My WANT list... hard to believe without being around the blogging world much I've still managed to add 7 books. ;D lol.

Books Received:
Goodreads Synopsis:
It's said that when opportunity knocks on your door, you have only one chance to take it.

No one said what you're supposed to do when it kicks it.

All Rebecca MacDonnell wants to do is get through high school with grades good enough to win a prestigious scholarship so that she can finally leave her miserable life behind. One evening, after a particularly bad day, she finds out that people other than her aging grandmother need her help, and desperately so.

Well, not “people,” exactly. Vampires, werewolves, demons, ghosts, goblins, and other things thought only imaginary all need help sometime, and Rebecca was born with the unique ability to heal ethereal beings. She is about to turn seventeen, the age at which her talent will manifest in its entirety, and become a true Healer…if she lives through the event. A war between various ethereal factions is brewing, and Healers are a valuable commodity to any side. Those who wish to harness Rebecca’s manifesting healing powers for their own purposes must get to her before her seventeenth birthday.

Only two vampires and a rogue werewolf stand between Rebecca and those determined to make her serve them, and the fact that Rebecca has no clue what she's doing doesn't exactly help matters.

Neither does being seriously attracted to more than one of those just trying to protect her.

For a soon-to-be seventeen-year-old Healer-in-training, that's a lot to handle.

Especially on top of her homework.
So how does your week look to you?  Me lots more words needing to be typed. ;D

Hope you have a wonderful week!  In words and pages.

What is on the tunes list this past week?  Silence... well, I do have one cd I've been listening to.  And a few songs I love on it, so I'll play you one here.  This particular song spared an idea for another story in my mind, but I love the music...the swelling of it... the beat and all.  Hope you enjoy!

Sorry, got 106 spam comments in less than 24hrs. Had to turn on again.

I love comments! Please share your thoughts. I will respond here in the comments back to you.

I'll try again without word verification, but if Spammers get out of hand again I'll turn it back on.

Thank you for visiting!
