Not you typical Fallen Angel read. Her main character Six, I took a instant liking too an that's saying a lot for me because it sometimes takes me a while to warm up to the female lead. And the story was very good.

Thats it for me...now what about you?

18 & Over Book Blogger Follow #6

Friday, June 29, 2012

18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!

This Weeks Question:
If you could only gift one book to someone which book would it be?

For YA, I would gift the first book in the Moganville Vampire Series by Rachel Caine. Because, everyone needs to read them! lol.

From the author of the popular Weather Warden series. Welcome to Morganville, Texas.

Just don't stay out after dark.

College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation, where the popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks in the school's social scene: somewhere less than zero.

When Claire heads off-campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don't show many signs of life. But they'll have Claire's back when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.

Hmm..  And for Adult, I would gift the first book in the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead. Love this series :)

Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men.
Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.

When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven't stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess getup complete with whip and wings. And she can't have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy's life. At least there's her day job at a local bookstore--free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't.

But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny...
What about you? What book would you gift?

Random Rants #3

Sunday, June 24, 2012

Random Rants is a weekly post I am starting that I will post on Sundays. I will be ranting about things I loved or didn't love from the past week...these rants do not pertain to books.
I love, love, LOVE shrimp chips... the bag says crackers... but, they're not crackers! lol.. But yes! Love those and ARIZONA GREEN TEA! I won't drink any other Arizona drink besides Green Tea. So... When my birthday comes up... you know what to get me hehe ;)

Otis and Ruby are our two doggies! They are Chipins! Chihuahua & Miniature Pinscher's. I love these dogs! They're little monsters!! lol. Otis has the habit of coming into my room and trying to jump in my bed with me... Which makes me get up and take him all the way back downstairs and twenty minutes later he's knocked down all the barricades and comes trotting back up to my room. He does this like 3 times a night... laaawd. Ruby on the other hand is independent and relaxed. She'll just be chillin' not giving a care in the world while Otis follows us around all over the place lol.
Otis & Ruby
Yeah... They claimed that couch as theirs -___-

Breaking Dawn Part 2

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Eeeek. I am soooo excited for the final installment of the Twilight Saga! I'm more or less excited about the new vampires. I've been dying to see other vampires other than the Cullens and the Volturi. Just from the little clips that are in this trailer, I've got to say that I sooo can't wait to go see this movie. I'm gonna have to watch this about 10 more times before I get over all my excitement. lol. Some of the new characters that I'm excited for are: The Amazon Coven: Zafrina, Kachiri and Senna... and let me just say that I'm really glad who they chose to play those parts!

Zafrina played by Judith Shekoni
Senna played by Tracey Heggins

I couldn't find a picture of Kachiri, or find her name in the cast listing on IMDB.... hmmm.. Not good! But... Nonetheless, don't these two look beautiful and exotic! I am already in love with these two! So, yeah... make this really short.. I'm excited to watch this movie. Let's just hope Kristen Stewarts acting has somewhat progressed... I think I actually saw her smile in the trailer!

Now... Here's the trailer!!!

Welcome to Salacious Randomness, my weekly post of sexy men and women (actors, models, singers..etc ) that I'm crushing on..stalking..dreaming about, should I go on? no? okay leggo!

So, this week's post is going to be on George Clooney. Now, I'm not a chick that goes for older men BUT Mr. Clooney does something to my girlie bits..know what I'm saying? I've always enjoyed just looking at him...too much? maybe....but look at the man for goodness sake! Plus he an awesome actor, an humanitarian and just all around Mr. Wonderful (I don't know this for sure, but it;s what I hear..he..he). His only issue...I guess you can say he's a commitment-phobe. Got married once & vowed to never do it again...well at least he sticks to what he says...lol!

**Bio Courtesy IMDb

Date of Birth
6 May 1961Lexington, Kentucky, USA 
Birth Name
George Timothy Clooney 
Gorgeous George 
5' 11" (1.80 m) 
Mini Biography
Born in Lexington, Kentucky, as son of Nick Clooney, a TV newscaster of many years, who hosted a talk show at Cincinnati and often invited George into the studios already at the age of 5. Avoiding competition with his father, he quit his job as broadcast journalist after a short time.
George studied for a few years at Northern Kentucky University. He failed to join the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. He came to acting when his cousin, Miguel Ferrer, got him a small part in a feature film. After that, in 1982, he moved to LA and tried for a whole year to get a role while he slept in a friend's closet. His first movie, together with Charlie Sheen, stayed unreleased but got him the producers' attention for later contracts.

Best man at the wedding of Richard Kind.
Tried out for a position on the Cincinnati Reds baseball team.
He says he will never get married again, nor have any children, but Michelle Pfeiffer and Nicole Kidman both bet $10,000 each that he would be a father before he turned 40. They were both wrong, and each sent him a check. He returned the money, betting double or nothing that he won't have kids by age 50.
Waged war against the paparazzi by boycotting "Entertainment Tonight" (1981), the sister show of "Hard Copy" (1989), which had filmed Clooney without his permission.
Was voted "Sexiest Man Alive" by People Magazine. [1997]
Was voted "Best Dressed Male Television Star." [1997]
Chosen by People (USA) magazine as one of the "50 Most Beautiful People in the World." [1996]
Cousin of Miguel FerrerRafael FerrerGabriel FerrerMonsita Ferrer, Maria Providencia Ferrer Murdock, Carlos CampoCathi Campo, Cari Leary, and Cristina Stretz. Half-cousin of Mica Darley. Cousin-in-law of Debby Boone and Terry Botwick.
Uncle is the late actor José Ferrer.
Nephew of singer/actress Rosemary Clooney and Betty Clooney. Half-nephew of Gail Stone.
Educated at Northern Kentucky University.
Owned a pet pig named Max, given to him by Kelly Preston, for eighteen years. Max died on December 1, 2006.
Studied acting at The Beverly Hills Playhouse.
Coincidentally, his first steady TV role was in the medical sitcom "E/R" (1984) that was based in Chicago and co-starred Elliott GouldMary McDonnell and Jason Alexander. Ten years later it would take another TV series "ER" (1994) (also based in Chicago) to finally launch him into the galaxy of superstardom.

His bio was pretty dog on long...so I linked back to IMDb.  Love you George to death, but seriously man!
