Monday's Beginnings (174)

Well, it's Monday.  And New Years Eve... where the hell does the time go?

I'm still way behind on commenting and posting.  *sigh*  So I'll have to work hard at commenting back to you here.  Goodness holidays wreck havoc on my days and schedule.  I'll try! I promise.  I need to get caught up with all the plans I have for 2013 here, and keep caught up with re-writes and everything else I want to do.  Crazy!

I did manage to pick up a book, which I didn't think I would be able to do, so it was one for my enjoyment and not review.  Also, I did get a few things up this week.

I did not do a Flash Fiction Friday.  This Holiday season is going to drive me nuts, I can feel it.  Doing these might help with that.  But I'm afraid I'm running out of time quickly.  I'm hoping to get back to the groove in 2013.

My WANT List...It looks like I've only added 2.  Told ya it was a slow week here.

Received Last Week:
I couldn't pass up the deal on this book.  It was on sale for $5 on the publishers site.  If the next book wasn't sold out, I would have got it as well.
Goodreads Synopsis:
After a few months as a vampire, Alyssa thought she'd learned all she needed to know about the supernatural world. But her confidence is shattered by the delivery of a mysterious package - a Pandora's Box.Seemingly innocuous, the box is in reality an ancient prison, generated by a magic more powerful than anyone in her clan has ever known. But what manner of evil could need such force to contain it?When the box is opened, the sinister creature within is released, and only supernatural blood will satiate its thirst. The clan soon learns how it feels when the hunter becomes the hunted.Powerless against the ancient evil, the clan flees Las Vegas for Boston, with only a slim hope for salvation. Could Lysander's old journals hold the key? And what if they don't?And how welcome will they be in a city run by a whole different kind of supernatural being? Werewolves...

Hope you have a great and safe week this week.  Enjoy your New Year and enjoy your new years read.

Wishing you all the best in words and pages.
