www_wednesdays4

Here’s where I’m at:

What I’m currently reading:

The King by J.R. Ward

I, like all other Black Dagger Brotherhood fans, have been waiting a year for this book.  As King Wrath is my favourite of all the characters, I know I’m going to love this.

What I recently read:

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

I just finished this.  It took me a bit longer to get through the last few chapters as I had to keep stopping every few paragraphs because I was going to ugly snot sob.   Notwithstanding the “event” that made this so sad for me, I gave this a 5 star rating.  As I said in my Goodreads review, any book that can make me FEEL so much deserves 5 stars.

What I’m hoping to read next:

Inked Armor by Helena Hunting

This is the highly anticipated follow up to Clipped Wings.  I was glad that I was able to get an ARC from NetGalley.  I don’t want to wait any more!!!

Now won’t you be nice and share your WWW…with me?


Wordless Wednesday

It’s all about this for the next couple of days.

The Book Barista: Clockwork Princess; Lover At Last

What’s on my Kobo today:

I am presently reading two books.  Both of which I was extremely excited about.

Clockworkprincesscover

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy

Tessa Gray should be happy – aren’t all brides happy?
Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.
A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa’s heart, will do anything to save her.

Random Thoughts on Eric Packer, Book Recs

Just some random thoughts on a rainy Friday that I thought I’d share.  Nothing too earth shattering. I promise!

Scene from Cosmopolis

Along with everyone else, I saw the quick but amazing 30 second trailer for Cosmopolis yesterday.  Yes, it’s true! I’m still alive to tell the tale.  I can’t even tell you how much I am looking forward to this movie.  Looking at this pic on the right I think of a few things but mainly I think how HOT Rob Eric Packer looks with a gun in his hand.  Which leads me to my next random thought… [W4R:  OhmyGod… OhmyGod… OhmyGod… OhmyGod… LMAO]

Smokin’ hot Rob!

What is it about Rob that makes him look so sexy doing bad things, like holding a gun (see pic above) or smoking?  Smoking is considered by most to be a vile habit [I’m not saying whether I agree or disagree with that] But damn! Put a cigarette in that boys hand…or *GULP* between his lips and…well…HOT is all I can say.

Moving on to other random thoughts… I’ve been reading A LOT lately *snicker* [since when do I not read a lot?]. I am referring to books not fan fiction. [W4R:  What is this you speak of?!?!]  I recently read two books that I really enjoyed. The series is called The Fallen by Kristina Douglas.  There are two books available at the moment, Raziel and Demon, with a third book, Warrior, due out soon.  Honestly, I bought Raziel because it was on sale on Kobo [W4R:  I love my Kobo app, just thought you’d like to know! :P] and because of the cover. No point in lying about that 😉  I’m a pretty easy-going book reader. I tend to enjoy most books.  I started reading the first book because I was looking for a filler until the next Black Dagger Botherhood (AKA “BDB“) book comes out.  [W4R:  And now you have ME reading it, too… LOL]  I ended up loving it and devoured it in a couple of days.  Then promptly obtained the second book and got through that one pretty quick.  I seem to now be fixated on these Fallen Angels.  Which, is a perfect segue way for my next random thought…

Heaven by JenaDellaGrottaglia on deviantART

I don’t think I need to add anything more to that random thought! 🙂 [W4R:  Hellooo there, Angel Man!]

Speaking of reading, I just started book two in Karen Marie Moning’s Highlander series.  For some reason, I was a bit reluctant to start this.  In fact, I actually started reading the first book a few times but put it aside for other books.  [W4R:  I’ve been recommended these books as well, but I’ve not picked them up yet.. eh… should I? LOL]  But, at my FB friend Angela’s insistence I got back at it and boy am I glad I did.  Who doesn’t love hot Scotsmen with a touch of the supernatural/paranormal.  Now don’t hate me for saying this but *whispers* I’m enjoying these books more than the Fever Series which I did like quite a bit.

J.R. Ward’s Lover Reborn

March 27th can’t get here soon enough!!!!  That is the date of release for the 10th book [W4R:  OMG!  There’s 9 already?!  I have a lot of catching up to do!  Hey, at least I don’t have to wait, right? LOL] in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward.  The book about Tohrment is so highly anticipated by so many that I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of the BDB fans will be calling in sick on that day just so they can sit and read.  I am really looking forward to Tohr’s story as well as a lot of the back stories going on in the series.  Might I just mention Blay and Qhuinn.

That’s pretty much it for today’s random thoughts.  Well, okay, I’ll leave you with one more…

Eric Packer

… and I do believe that brings me full circle 🙂  [W4R:  Hummannna hummaannnaa hummmmaannnna! LOL]

*Writing4Roses is kind enough to look over my ramblings to make sure I’m dotting all my Is and crossing all my Ts (and to add the odd witty comment every here and there).


What I’m Looking Forward to in 2012

So 2012 is upon us, and moving very quickly too.  January has almost come and gone but there’s so much more to come this year.  So many things that I’m looking forward to.

Rob's movies in 2012

 
MOVIES
 
There are so many movies I’m looking forward to this year.  Of course, there are the Rob movies I just can’t wait for:  Bel Ami, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 and Cosmopolis.  I’m anxious to see all three of his movies but Cosmopolis is the one that means the most to me 🙂  [Note from W4R:  Sweet Jesus, this man shall kill me in 2012! Yes, I’m predicting the future… meccaleccahighmeccahineyho LOL]
 
I’m also looking forward to Hunger Games.  The book was phenomenal and I’m excited to see what they’ve done with the movie.  How about The Avengers?!  I’m a sucker for a good superhero movie, but ALL those superheroes in one movie…  HOT DAMN!!!!!
 
 

My Anticipated Books for 2012

 
BOOKS
 
I’m sure there are many books to be released in 2012 that I will really enjoy, but the book that I’m most excited about is JR Ward’s Lover Reborn.  I’m bouncing in my seat in anticipation of the latest book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
 
I’m also looking forward to Cassandra Clare’s books City of Lost Souls and Clockwork Princess.  I’m not 100% sure that  Clockwork Princess will be released this year but I’m crossing my fingers.  [Note from W4R:  There’s MORE?!  I’m still on the second book! Geez, I can’t keep up!  LOL  *looks down & grabs a pen and… *delete, delete* opens MS Word & begins to make a list of MORE books-to-read LOL*]
 
Presently I’m reading and enjoying the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter.  Hopefully I’ll be all caught up when The Darkest Seduction is released.
 
Another book I’m dying to get my hands on is the sequel to Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard.  I’m not certain that it will be released this year but a girl can hope 🙂
 
 
& MORE

London

 
2012 is going to be the year that I will finally make a trip to London, England.  [Note from W4R: Jeal-ous! LOL I wanna go.. please to be putting me in to your suitcase, k? Thanks…]  Of course, I won’t believe it until I’ve actually purchased my ticket.  Note to Cor and Meg:  I’m coming for you!!!!!  Can’t wait!!!!!
 
 

My girls, Jen & Deb

Most importantly, in 2012 I’m looking forward to more good times with family and friends.  I made a lot of new friends in 2011 and I look forward to spending more time with those friends and making new ones!  😀
