Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

Something Witchy This Way Comes - Veronica Blade Really enjoyed it! I've read several books now by Veronica Blade, and she has yet to disappoint! If you want a smokin' YA 'witchy' story and a new book-boyfriend, look no further!

"I wish you'd stop comparing me to a pregnancy test."

Oh the gems of laughter in this book. The dialogue is witty and the banter between the main characters reminds me of the love/hate push/pull of Daemon and Katy from Obsidian. Here is a quote that I think really exemplifies that:

"But a guy like you shouldn't have to bother remembering my name, so I programmed myself in your contacts as Beneath Me. Now every time you see that, you'll remember I'm beneath you."

It's like a paranormal, high school The Secret Circle meets Beautiful Disaster.

"The word yummy came to mind"

Hayden... what a HOTTIE! He's like a teen angst bad boy with a heart of gold. It's that perfect opposites attract teenage romance, and that's just one facet of the story! This is a YA that will still catch your breath and make you break into a sweat with the spontaneous "lust bombs", but is still YA so it will not devolve into an underage porn.

"Did he have to go and admit he was jealous, apologize and be shirtless - all in one breath?"

I've always loved witch stories, especially involving younger characters learning how to deal with it all. An added dynamic of almost a 'conspiracy theory' feel to it makes this into a Must Read, if you enjoy anything similar. I highly recommend reading it, but the line starts behind me for a date with Hayden.

"I had magical powers. Holy freakin' crap."
