Day 1 of blogging! Wish me luck!

Hmm..10 Things You May Want to Know About Me:
(in no particular order, just how they popped into my head)

10. I am a singing addict…I will sing any and everything possible. For example: If I am driving the tractor at the farm I am probably singing “I’m driving a tractor, I’m driving a tractor” as loudly as I can. It’s just who I am lol

9. I am a dork and simply proud of it!

8. I LOVE to read! You can generally find me with a book in my hand (or my kindle) at least once a day everyday!

7. I have two beautiful daughters that I love with all my heart! Emalee is 4 and Annaliese is 2 months old. 

6. I am an animal lover and have a house full of them! (2 dogs, 2 cats, a guinea pig, 2 gerbils, a lot of fish, 4 chickens…and more to come with time :D)

5. I love to take pictures…I hate being in them though!

4. I want to write…but I’m scared to. (I secretly have a book in my bedroom that I have been trying to write for a while now)

3. I am an OCD neat freak on the mend…I have slowly learned that my house doesn’t have to be spotless all the time.

2. I am a HORRIBLE cook…but I am working on it!

1. I love my husband more than anything in this world (next to our girls). We have been together for 10 years now and he quite simply spoils me rotten!

Now that you know more about me than you probably wanted to…

I’m not sure what has made me decide that blogging is a good idea…heck even a GREAT idea for me..however, I have. I think it will be a nice way to get out some of the things I am thinking.

I plan for my blog to be a somewhat random place. Here is a list of just some of the things you can expect to read about here:
     -Books, books, and more books ( I love to read lol)
     -Working out and getting ready to run

Well let’s see…where to start. Oh I know! I will start by talking a little about the books I just finished reading and am already thinking of rereading and wanting the next one to come out. 

The Parched Series by Z.L. Arkadie is quite simply an awesome series! I got started reading it because of a website I found through Facebook called ILoveVampireNovels. This is an AMAZING website that not only introduces you to new authors and books but also helps you find FREE (my favorite four letter word) kindle books. I can honestly say that since I joined this site I have gotten about 20 free books!! Not all of them are great…however, several have been awesome and made me want to purchase the remainder in the series. (Which , in my opinion, is the point in an author giving away the first book in their series)

Opps…sorry I got a little distracted…back to the books…

The series is an interesting twist on vampires and fairy like creatures. They are awesome romances with enough comedy and action to keep you coming back for more. So far there are seven book in the series (all available on kindle for pretty cheap prices). Each book focuses on a different sister and her bond while the ones we have already met pop up to help out when needed. The last book (which I just finished reading this morning before climbing out of bed) switches between all 14 of the main characters. You would think that this would take away from the story or make things confusing, however, as long as you have read all of the books leading up to it, it works! By this point in the series I was so enamored by all of the characters that I wanted to know what they were thinking, doing, planning, etc. I can’t imagine this particular book being written in any other manner. However, I do hope that the next book goes back to a normal pace…not sure if I could handle having to keep up with that much that fast. 

I have to say that after reading a ton of free books (some are edited quite horridly) this series was quite refreshing! Although there were a few small edits that were missed it wasn’t enough to bother me. I love, love, love how the author writes! It just seems to flow so well and drag you into the story whether you like it or not. I plan to do some research and see if she has written any other books and possibly read some of them soon! 

Well, I think I have rambled enough for one day! Time to go get started cleaning my house! It sure does look like it exploded over the weekend…that’s what I get for being sick and lazy!
