All the stones that are thrown are building up a wall ...

Okay guys, October is past the halfway point. My birthday is over. You have no excuse for not signing up for NaNoWriMo and writing a novel in November. None. And while you're at it you should totally add me as a writing buddy so I don't look pathetic and lonely. Look, I'll even make it easy for you... Here I am - Join me or I'll send my T-Rex to torment you while you're showering. He'll try to get you with his tiny arms. You'll be scared. Oh, yes. You'll be scared.

Sooooo ... I totally overslept this morning. I remember my alarm going off and I remember turning it off and all of a sudden Hailey was standing at the foot of my bed staring at me. Umm, hey! What's up, little Bug? And why are you here while I'm still sleeping? Oh, crap! I felt like I was running a few steps behind all morning. Even though I really wasn't. Of course, this leads to endless teasing from my family because I can count exactly two times I've overslept in the last several years and both of them have been recently. *face palm*

Anyway. I have book stuff here ...
NaNoWriMo and what I've learned in the month of November - I may have failed at writing 50K words every single time I tried but I still learned something from it.

Book #221 - Covet (The Fallen Angels #1) by J.R. Ward - I had some issues with the first part of the book but we worked through them and now we're BFFs with all the trimmings.

Teaser Tuesday - My teasers all sound like I read psycho-crazy books. I don't. For the most part.

30 days of books... Day 37 - Magic, murder and mayhem. Not necessarily in that order. PS-Cole asked me how I could have 37 days in my 30 days of books. I was like, because it's my blog and I can do what I want! Boo-yah!

And in really cool news... I received an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of Shiloh Walker's Tarnished Knight (Grimm's Circle #4). I'm kinda excited about it because the author chose me to give it to (Okay, fine. Not just me, but I can still be excited) and it's not out for another week. I'm sure I'll read it tonight and have the review up tomorrow.

And that's about it.

what is 30 days of books? keep meaning to ask.

It was supposed to be a month's worth of books that I have on my 'to-read' shelf at Goodreads, but I have a ridiculous amount of books that I'm waiting to read so I've decided to continue it until I run out of shelf.

To put things in perspective, today was book #49 of 93. You might be wondering how I'm up to book 49 but I'm only on day 37. Well, I lumped some of the series books together so I wouldn't be rehashing the same reasons I'm not currently reading a book for a string of days. Does that make sense?

Ah, and the best part about this meme: Most of the books on this list were free e-books that I downloaded through Amazon, Borders or Barnes and Noble. FREE BOOKS! Awesome!
