Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO, what a ride!"
This is a traveling meme and for November we welcome back our original host Marcia from Mailbox Monday. Readers get to gather and share the
books that came into their house last
week (checked out library books don’t count,
eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
Not many books in the mail again but I've been stocking up on ebooks. There are so many free ones available! Now I have even more books but I'm spending less time reading them because I'm always checking for more! Oh well, I guess there's worse addictions to have... I hope your mailbox was full of goodies this week!
Clouds are brewing over
Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can't tell if this is
the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city
itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a
paranormal registration act, times haven't been this precarious for
vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay low
for a bit, and let the mortals calm down.
That's when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly.
Chicago's mayor insists it's nothing to worry about, but Merit knows
only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to
change the very fabric of nature. She'll have to turn to friends old and
new to find out who's behind this, and stop them before it's too late
for vampires and humans alike.
Isobel’s life is
falling apart. Her mom just married some guy she met on the internet
only three months before, and is moving them to his sprawling, gothic
mansion off the coast of nowhere. Goodbye, best friend. Goodbye, social
life. Hello, icky new stepfather, crunchy granola town, and unbelievably
good-looking, officially off-limits stepbrother.
But on her
first night in her new home, Isobel starts to fear that it isn’t only
her life that’s unraveling—her sanity might be giving way too. Because
either Isobel is losing her mind, just like her artist father did before
her, or she’s seeing ghosts. Either way, Isobel’s fast on her way to
being the talk of the town for all the wrong reasons.
My name is Debbie. I am blessed to have a wonderful family - my hubby and three sons (ages 20, 22 & 24), two grandbabies, too many pets, too many books, an awesome hammock and an often messy house, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Well, maybe a house that's just a little bit cleaner but it's obviously not a priority...
