It doesn't officially release until tomorrow, but I guess libraries get early copies, so I spent today reading Turbulent Sea by Christine Feehan. It was absolutely fantastic. I loved it. From start to finish it was a wonderful roller coaster ride. And Ilya is just totally hot. This story totally moved me.

Book 6 in Christine Feehan's Drake Sisters series is Joley Drake's story. Joley is the wild child of the Drakes, but she's also very much a loner. Her voice has made her a rock superstar, her magical abilities to manipulate sound has made her a target of fanatics. This story is different in many ways from the other Drake novels. The others all take place in the family's hometown of Sea Haven and majorly involve the other sisters in the plot. Not this one.

Because of Joley's profession, this follows her life on the road and centers around her band. But, because of her lifestyle, the danger to Joley is even more profound than most of her sisters. Therefore, whether she likes it or not, Joley needs Ilya for protection. But don't worry, the sisters and Sea Haven do play a part, just smaller than the other books. I'm not going to go into any more detail of the story than that. This book is so awesome that you have to read it if you want to know what happens. But this book is so worth the reading. Turbulent Sea is truly phenomonal.

Turbulent Sea will be released tomorrow, July 29th. Trust me, you are going to want your own copy. I have had mine on pre-order for 2 months. But I am so glad I got to read it a day ahead of time. I loved it. Christine Feehan NEVER disappoints.

Hump Day!

Happy Hump Day everyone. That's right, it's Wednesday, the middle of the week. I want to take this time to discuss heroes. Who are heroes? Police? Medical providers? Firefighters? Yes they are. They willingly put their own lives at risk to help us every day. But, in the end, my true hero is my mom. She is the bravest, most wonderful person on the planet.

My mom deals daily with my seizures. They fill her with concern every time I have one. I have almost died from them in the past. But, unlike other people, even my own brother, she doesn't treat me like a freak or someone to be afraid of. My brother panics and strangers treat me like I have the plague. But not my mom. That makes her a true hero in my book. She's also my best friend in the whole world.

Who are your heroes? Why are they your heroes? And, if you thought you never did anything heroic than I have to ask; have you ever smiled at a stranger? That alone, though you might not have realized it, may have perked up that person's day. Even small things can make an ordinary person a hero. Have a great day all.

I've Been Reading!

I've just discovered some great books. For a while now I have heard Gena Showalter gush about the books of Kresley Cole, but I never tried them. Well, I just read the first four in her Immortals series and am so in love. I can not wait to read the fifth one and will do so as soon as it arrives. This series is awesome and intense. Totally passionate and the characters are so cool. She has so many stand out characters that I hope will eventually have their stories told such as Regin and Nix.

Book six will be out February of next year and I am looking forward to that one as well. The demon king is one of the characters that has stood out and can't wait to read his story. Book five, which I purchased and am just waiting to be delivered is about his brother and also looks dynomite. It so makes me wish I had listened to Gena's gushing earlier. But, in a way it's a good thing. I've had a lot of books to read without the wait.:-)

If you'd like to check out Kresley Cole and her books, I put up a link to her website. Her books are fantastic. But I have to warn you, if you are tired, don't pick up one of her books and start reading it. I was stupid enough to do that and I couldn't put it down until I finished it even though I was dead tired. That's how good they are. Consider yourself warned.

Introducing My Babies

I have never put up pictures of my sweet kitties before, but I want to now. These are my babies. These are the two sweetest little angels in the world and they keep me sane. They make me laugh and they make me melt. I can't imagine life without these two little lovebugs. Both kitties are girls.

This first picture is my oldest cat, Pudge. You can't tell from this picture, because of how she is stretched, but she's a little pudgeball, hence how her name came about. She sleeps with me at night curled up around my hip. I sleep better with her there.:-)

The second picture, with the Christmas decorations, is the younger one. Her name is Spatz and she's called that because of her fur. It's totally black except for peach colored spots all over that look like an artist picked up his brush and just went whack with it. And, I'm certain you can tell from the picture that she's a totally mischiefous imp. I love the little cutie.

They each have their own strange personality quirks. Pudge likes to watch the water go down the toilet when you flush it. It fascinates her to no end. Spatz likes to knock everything off shelves. She jumps up at bats at the item, no mattter how big and heavy, until it does a swan dive. They are just so adorable. That's my babies.

Happy 4th

Tomorrow is Independence Day and I hope you all have a great one. Enjoy the fireworks, have a barbeque, and just plain have fun. But, if any of you indulge in the picture I put up, please keep it safe and let someone else drive. Have a happy and safe holiday weekend all.
