No idea how much anybody really cares about my book previews so I’m not sure if I should keep posting them actually… Feedback would be great. Does anyone even like what I’ve posted so far? Does it sound good? Want to hear more? Let me know guys.
Jade’s car had a convertible top which she kept down all of the time in the summer, unless if it was raining of course. Her nana had bought her the baby blue Volkswagen Bug as a Christmas gift last year which was all the more reason for her to want her license. “So where to?” I asked “You never said what we’re doing,” “We’re going clubbing girl!” She exclaimed. She hit the gas and we went flying down the street. Ten minutes later and we were parking in front of The Pulse. It was an old warehouse turned into the ultimate location for wild raves. The line was hanging out the door and wrapped around the building. “How are we ever gonna get in?” I said eyeing the long line. “Hold on. I know some people.” Jade replied back. As we got out of the car I followed her lead to the shabby looking building. We went around back and were met with by a huge bouncer. He was tall, bald, and ripped. Muscles bulged from his tight black tee shirt. Jade stood up on her toes to whisper something in his ear. He grunted before stepping aside to let us both in. “What did you tell him?” I asked curiously. “Oh I just gave him the password. I happen to be good friends with the guy who throws these raves.” She suppressed a grin. Of course Jade knew the guy. Jade knows everyone.
The moment we stepped in I could literally feel the vibrations of the music through the floor. The wide open space of the warehouse was nearly pitch black save for the light of glow sticks in party goers hands and flashing neon lights above. Jade grabbed my hand and pulled us into a throng of people dancing as though tonight was her last night. I wasn’t so good with dancing. I never felt like I had the rhythm but I swayed to the music with Jade’s guidance. “Come one girl. Move those hips!” Jade screamed over the hard beats of the techno music as she grinded her hips with ease. I tried unsuccessfully to match my dancing to hers. I was just thankful the room wasn’t well lit. At least everyone couldn’t see my sad attempts at dancing. As the song changed into a different tempo I found myself finally falling into a rhythm. “Now you’re doing it.” Jade encouraged.
Just as I was really beginning to enjoy myself I felt a strange feeling and knew it wouldn’t be long before I blacked out. This was totally inconvenient. Why couldn’t it wait until I went to sleep? I felt my legs buckled underneath me. I couldn’t fight it. The room around me was losing focus. I felt my knees crash to the ground. Total darkness.
It’s pretty obvious that I haven’t been making updates on book reviews in a while but it’s because I’ve been working on my own novel. When I made this blog my intentions were to not only post reviews but also try my hand at a little creative editing of my own. I now have an almost completed manuscript of a novel I’d like to attempt to get published this year. I will possibly be dropping little snippets here and there to see how they do. Please give me your feedback and I hope you enjoy. The novel is called Just in Times: A Traveler’s Story. More to come soon.
It’s finally that time of year again: chilly nights, hoodies,bonfires,hot chocolate. My favorite part about fall is how easy it is to curl up to a good book with a hot cup of tea. My long forgotten snuggie will be in full use this fall/winter. It’s also about time for me to round up some new books to read. I seriously love this season.
Random post but today is my birthday!! Sadly no one granted me with a gift card to Barnes and Noble but I did get an awesome decorative wine glass. (Books and wine can go together right?). In other news classes have been going well for me. I made a B on my first stats test. I bought a new book recently as well. Unfortunately I don’t have it near me at the moment but I will post the name and author when I get a chance. I hope everyone is doing well, living well, and reading something amazing. As always Happy Reading.
So I never got around to doing that promised review. So sorry, please don’t hate me. I’d love to give you all some super awesome, totally reasonable explanation on the long delay but really I don’t have one. Truth is sometimes life just keeps you busy or gets you down and you lose track of some things. Obviously I let this blog become one of those things that I lost track of and for that I am so sorry. School is back in session for me but my schedule this semester should still leave me plenty of time for blogging. (That is until finals haha). On Tuesdays I only have one class and I don’t work so I’m gonna try to make those my definite blog days. Of course I’ll also have mini updates throughout the week as well. It’s been so long since I read Thirteen Reasons Why so I’ll have to skim around in a but tonight to get my bearings and this time I PROMISE YOU there will be a review. Again please don’t hate me and as always Happy Reading.
So I just finished reading The Selection by Kiera Cass and let me tell you: It was amazing! I am totally and extremely hooked. 327 pages and I finished it in 24 hours. I am in love and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series. A full review will be given either tomorrow night or Monday morning as it is currently 1 am and I have work tomorrow. (Why am I even up right now??) If you haven’t read it check it out. Happy Reading!
